Although Ping was one of four strays found running as a pack, as far as we know, there was no Pong to go with this Ping! The four dogs were picked up and taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on January 10th. Ping is approximately one year old and Hound blend of sorts. Of the four dogs, Ping and Sandy were heartworm positive.
Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR on January 30th for help with Ping. “She was very shy and scared at first,” Kristin said. “We had to carry her to get her outside, but she has become much friendlier. The next step is heartworm treatment. I can honestly tell you that without RADAR’s help we will not be able to treat these babies.” Of course, we agreed to help! Ping had her heartworm treatment done on February 7th.
“Ping is a pretty, medium-sized dog,” we were told. “She is still unsure of herself, but also craves love and attention. I wouldn’t call her outgoing yet, but she has adapted very well to people. She is calm and good with other dogs. She needs a kind, patient and understanding owner who will give her time to gain self-confidence. She has many years of love to give to the right person.” To see more photos of Ping, click here.
RADAR paid all $238 of the heartworm treatment costs for Ping.
