Scamp was living as a tramp! He was probably looking for food when he was found as a stray near the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 26th. This two to three-year-old Bully Breed mix was then admitted to the shelter, where he tested heartworm positive. The combination of being a black dog, his breed mix and heartworm status, greatly limited his rescue or adoption options.

After three weeks on the shelter’s urgent list, on August 10th, Scamp finally had rescue interest! Maple Leaf Mutts in Vermont would take him, but only if his heartworm treatment could be provided. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wasted no time in asking for our help, and we agreed immediately. He received his heartworm treatment on August 14th.

“Scamp is such a sweet, happy fellow,” Susan said. “This lower riding, compact love bug is really a large strip of velcro all dressed up in a sleek black and white doggy jacket! Scamp loves being close to his human. Scamp is a mid-sized fellow who will tell you he’s the perfect size for any lap. His quirky little body type and endearing little grin will draw you in, but his playful, wiggly personality will have you coming back for seconds and thirds! He’d be a great choice for a family with kids and other pets.” To see more photos of Scamp, click here.

RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Scamp.
