Paz means “peace” in Spanish, but it was anything but peaceful for this Paz. A two-year-old German Shepherd mix, Paz was found as a stray on March 3rd and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. It would usually be easy for a great dog like Paz to get adopted. But when he tested heartworm positive, that was no longer an option. The only hope Paz had of getting out the shelter alive would require a rescue commitment.
There would be no peace for Mary Lou Seymour with The Heart Beat Goes On program until Paz was safe. On March 11th, Mary Lou began promoting Paz to rescues. On March 21st, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut offered to take Paz, but there was just one small problem: finding funds for his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou turned to RADAR for help and we agreed.
On April 5th, Paz had his heartworm treatment. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On, shared this with us about Paz: “He’s a beautiful German Shepherd mix! He knows the “sit” command. He is a quirky, fun dog. There’s never a boring minute hanging out with him! He keeps you on your toes, but he is a super-nice guy with no issues.” To view more photos of Paz, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Paz.
