Sweet is a dog who lives up to his name! On March 15th, this lovable, two-year-old Pit Bull mix arrived at the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina. Sweet was a starved stray who had all the odds pitted against him, including testing heartworm positive. Sweet’s prospects looked bleak.
On April 21st, RADAR offered to cover Sweet’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. Unfortunately, for many months no one was willing to take a risk on a dog who was black, heartworm positive and a Pit Bull mix. But at long last, on October 7th, Sweet was rescued by South of the Bully Rescue in North Carolina! His heartworm treatment took place on October 28th. Thanks to help from RADAR and its supporters, Sweet’s future is looking quite bright!
There’s no way to describe Sweet as other than sweet! Emily Ward, who met with Sweet and took many of his photos, noted that, “He’s food and love motivated. He just wants to sit beside you and soak up the love.” Sweet is in need of a forever home and Emily commented that, “I feel sure he is going to become a Velcro dog to whomever is lucky enough to adopt him. This guy loves people. He’s a typical forgiving Pit Bull. Someone let him starve and suffer for a while and he still loves us. Oh yeah, Sweet has no warm up time. If you sit with him for even a second, he’s your friend for life!” Click here to see more photos of Sweet.
RADAR paid all $250 of Sweet’s heartworm treatment costs.
