The day Ramsi and her two weaned puppies arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina could have been a very sad day for her, but Ramsi kept her smile. Her owners had rehomed her other puppies but could not find homes for the last two, River & Raegan. They decided to bring mom and pups to the shelter on March 17th. At only one year old, this medium-sized Shepherd mix had already had not only a litter, but also tested positive for heartworms. Surely Ramsi’s two puppies would be safe but mom’s heartworm status meant that a rescue would be harder to find.
River and Raegan quickly found rescue, but what about Ramsi? On March 20th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society reached out to RADAR. Peppertree Rescue in New York had a spot for Ramsi if her heartworms could be treated. We agreed to help Ramsi, and she completed her heartworm treatment on April 28th.
Susan met Ramsi and was greatly taken with her. “Soft, appealing face and whoa, those ears!” Susan said. “Ramsi is such a sweet mid-sized lady. Ramsi is fast to smile and do a fast hip swivel letting you know she hopes you’ll come by and say ‘Hi’ to her. Nicely meeting dogs on our walk, she was docile and very gentle in her ways. Ramsi’s pet talent would be best applied in a home with slightly older kids and with other dogs who are looking for a more mellow, carefree four-legged companion.” Be sure to view more photos in Ramsi’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $267 of the heartworm treatment costs for Ramsi.
