Rambo

Rambo has waited long enough! This two to four-year-old Shepherd-Cattle Dog mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on June 13th in 2016. While at the shelter, he was very scared and unsure of his surroundings. Luckily, a foster home was found for him. Rambo spent the last year and a half learning what it takes to be brave and to trust others. He was making great progress in his foster home, and after a long wait, he got some great news!

At long last, on December 7th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania said that they were interested in taking him, but there was one thing that needed to be taken care of first. Rambo was heartworm positive, and he needed to be treated before the rescue could take him. Knowing just what to do, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help. We agreed, and Rambo got his treatment on January 9th!

Though it was a long road for Rambo, he used each day to gain a little more confidence in himself. “He can be skittish in new environments but each day he makes new strides,” a volunteer said when they provided an update on him. “He longs for and loves attention, but is a little shy in asking for it. You can see the happiness in his eyes when being petted and loved on.” Click here to view more photos of Rambo.

RADAR paid all of Rambo’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $232.

    We have had the utmost pleasure in being the adoptive family of Rambo. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet, love, care for, and call Rambo a member of our family. He joined us in July 2018 and has made leaps and bounds in confidence, all while giving our family more love and happiness than we could have ever imagined. Thank you for saving him and giving him a chance to find his forever home and give us the love and kindness that he does daily. We are truly blessed!!
