Radar the Dog

How fitting that Radar is RADAR’s 242nd assisted dog in 2013. That is exactly double the 121 dogs we assisted in all of 2012! This two-year-old American Bulldog mix was picked up as a stray by animal control on September 5th and taken to the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina. The combination of Radar’s breed and being heartworm positive, put him at great risk at the shelter. For weeks there was no rescue interest.

The shelter staff contacted RADAR on October 1st. They had a rescue interested in taking Radar if we could assist with his heartworm treatment. We agreed at once, and the same day South of the Bully Rescue in South Carolina committed to take Radar! Actually, Radar was named Stilt at the shelter, but his new foster Mom immediately changed his name to Radar!

Radar received his heartworm treatment on October 21st and 22nd. He was also tested for a possible bladder infection, but the results indicated no obvious problems. He was also found to be deaf. We’ve been told this about Radar: “This boy is so goofy and friendly. He loves to play, run and be loved. Radar enjoys everything and everyone. He is a wonderful boy who tested perfectly with cats and dogs at the shelter. He just loves life!” Click here to view more photos of Radar.

RADAR paid $287 for all of Radar’s heartworm treatment and vet care costs.

UPDATE! Radar the Dog has been adopted! He has a new name – Oskar! He has a canine brother and sister, too! Even better, they are also both RADAR-assisted dogs – Charlie and Luna (aka Hailey)!!
