Black Lab lovers will delight in Shelby. She is such a nice girl and has so many wonderful qualities. Somewhere between one and two years old, Shelby was picked up by animal control as a stray on October 23rd and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. So why was this great dog left lingering at the shelter? Well, she was heartworm positive.
At long last, on January 5th, Shelby garnered rescue interest. Worthy Dog Rescue in the Washington, DC, metro area offered to take her, but only if her heartworm treatment was taken care of. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, sought out our assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment. We agreed, and she was safe! She received her treatment on January 9th.
Shelby was described as being affectionate and having a sweet nature. She walks nicely on a leash. She is friendly to other dogs, both male and female, and enjoys her interactions with people. Shelby is a calm dog, and is so even-tempered with other dogs that she was even used as a ‘dog tester’ dog to help the shelter staff do evaluations. She has so much to offer and would make a lovely addition to most any home! Click here to view more photos of Shelby.
RADAR paid all of Shelby’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $255.
UPDATE! All funds for Shelby have been raised! Thank you!
