Weighing in at just 12 pounds, Rosie is undeniably tiny. But we’re convinced that at least half of her weight is made up of her enormous heart! A two-year-old Chihuahua mix, this little lady arrived at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on October 2nd as a stray. She must have been kept outside, due to the fact that she tested positive for heartworms.
On October 8th, Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On reached out to RADAR for help with Rosie. If we could assist with her heartworm treatment costs, they would pull her. We agreed to assist, and she was safe! She had her treatments on October 12th and 13th.
December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, said this about Rosie: “As much as I love big mutts, this little one will swallow you whole with her sweetness! How did a dog who eats so little and wants nothing but a pillow and occasional petting end up in a shelter? It doesn’t get crazier than this! If she had curls on her ears, you’d think she was Lady from Lady and the Tramp!” To see more photos of Rosie, click here.
RADAR paid all of Rosie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $296.
