Sirius the dog looked up in the sky at Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ and wished for someone to save and love him. A Retriever mix, he arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 31st. A two-year-old stray, he proved to be a true lover of people. But his heartworms repelled any human adopters or rescuers.
On October 7th, Grand Strand Golden Retriever Rescue (GSGRR) in South Carolina offered to take Sirius into their rescue if his heartworms would be treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our assistance. We agreed and Sirius was safe! He completed his heartworm treatment on October 22nd.
“Sirius is a super sweet affectionate dog,” we were told. “He just wants his human to himself. He can be walked with another dog, but he really needs to have his human to himself. With his lustrous long black coat, he is gorgeous and snuggly. Sirius would be awesome for someone wanting a single dog.” Click here to view more photos of Sirius.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment cost for Sirius, which totaled $354.
