Sully, at least in this case, is short for Sullivan, and a far cry from his shelter name of Bosephus! Two-year-old Sully is a Bully Breed mix and described to us by the shelter as being part Cane Corso, which is known as an Italian Mastiff. He arrived as a stray on October 1st at the Chesterfield County Animal Services shelter in South Carolina. No one came to claim him and, of course, he was heartworm positive.
On January 18th, the shelter requested our help with Sully. The shelter relies almost solely on animal rescues to move all of their animals. Bully Breed mixes and heartworm positive dogs are the hardest for them to move into rescue, and Sully was no exception. As an incentive for a rescue to pull him, we offered to assist with his heartworm treatment costs. A few days later, Virginia Paws for Pits agreed to take Sully! He received his treatment on March 8th.
“Sully is as happy and fun loving as they come!” the rescue shared with us. “Hold on to your hearts, as Sully is sure to steal them with his rugged good looks and sunny personality. Sully has never met a stranger and loves absolutely every person he meets from the very beginning. His favorite activities include laying on beds, sleeping on carpets, wagging his tail, and being adorable!” To see more photos of Sully, click here.
RADAR paid all $220 of the heartworm treatment costs for Sully.
