Who’s the purdiest dog in all the land? It’s Purdy, of course! This gorgeous Shepherd-Hound mix is one and a half years old, and is sure to melt your heart with not only her stunningly good looks, but also her wonderful personality. Poor Purdy ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on February 22nd. Surprisingly, Purdy went unnoticed in the shelter for quite a while. She was clearly ready to take the next step and begin her new life with someone who could give her the kind of she deserved, but there was an obstacle in her way. She was heartworm positive.
On June 2nd, Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont approached RADAR for help with Purdy. “If we can get funding for her heartworm treatment,” the rescue said, “we’d love to offer her a great foster home while she undergoes heartworm treatment, and then into a permanent home where she will be loved forever.” We agreed and Purdy made her way to Vermont! Her heartworm treatment took place on July 26th.
The following was shared with us from her time at the shelter: “Purdy so wants to please you! This super-sensitive gal is as gentle as they come and, gosh, she just wants to be accepted and loved on. Purdy loves for people to pet her, stroke her and use a soft approach on her. Purdy would love nothing better than to laze around on her back while you rub her tummy! Purdy nicely interacts with other dogs. Purdy is such a lover and so misses being the apple of someone’s eye.” Her rescue shared this with us, “She is kind, she is sweet, she has the most amazing smoky eyes that you instantly fall in love with. Oh… her favorite thing ever… BELLY RUBS!” To see more photos of Purdy, click here.
RADAR paid all $250 of the heartworm treatment costs for Purdy.
