Rosie, a three-year-old American Bulldog mix, surprises people with her rose-colored glasses view of the world! She arrived at the North Augusta Animal Control facility in Aiken County, South Carolina as a stray on June 8th and, sadly, no owner came for her. Rosie impressed everyone with her sweet demeanor but her rosy outlook could not overcome the fact that she was infested with deadly heartworms.
Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) in South Carolina contacted us about Rosie on June 21st. SAA wanted to save Rosie. Could RADAR cover the expensive heartworm treatment? We agreed to help. RADAR paid for all of Rosie’s heartworm treatment administered on June 27th and 28th.
“Rosie is adorable,” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with SAA, told us. “She looks like a moo-cow in person. She’s as nice and endearing as she looks.” Rosie gets along with people and other dogs. Rosie is food aggressive, which is often caused by a dog’s feeling the need to fight or compete for food. However, adopters can use different ways to address this issue.

RADAR paid all $334 of the heartworm treatment costs for Rosie.
