My name is Pebbles, and I rock! I’m an independent lady and the perfect mix of Lab and Bully Breed, with lots of energy and spunk. I’m somewhere between two and three years old, but it’s hard to keep track of time when you’re having fun! I’d been looking for a new place to call home when I was brought in to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 27th. I met a lot of new friends there, and many of them were trying to help me find my forever home! But one thing was holding me back: I was heartworm positive.
After lingering at the shelter for four long months, I finally got some rescue interest. On April 28th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania offered to take me! There was just one hitch: the cost of my heartworm treatment. But luckily, Susan Blakeney, a wonderful volunteer with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, knew just what to do. She asked the folks at RADAR if they would help, and thanks to their dedicated donors they were able to do just that. I had my heartworm treatments on May 8th and June 12th.
As for me, I’ve been described as a happy girl who just wants to play! I’m curious but polite in meeting people and, boy, I love playing with other dogs! I’m a great choice with kids of all ages. When I attended a shelter outreach event, I was friendly and social to all who stopped to visit me. If you have a friendly resident dog who would enjoy a companion, please consider me! I have nothing but a heart full of love to give a new family and would make a wonderful addition to most any family! To see more photos of me, click here!
RADAR paid all $452 of the heartworm treatment costs for Pebbles.
UPDATE! All funds for Pebbles have been raised! Thank you!

UPDATE Pebbles crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 23, 2018. She was treated for heartworms in mid-May and mid-June. Things seemed to be looking up for Pebbles. Then she started to have labored breathing, so she was taken to the vet the previous week. After x-rays were done, they found a mammary tumor. She quickly developed fluid in her belly, indicating heart failure. The vet believes that the cancer spread to her lungs, which were already compromised from the heartworms. Rest in Peace, Pebbles.
