What do you call a dog who’s both super sweet and the color of caramel? Yes, Taffy! This two-year-old Chow Chow-Golden Retriever mix arrived on January 2nd as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Even though Taffy was heartworm positive, a combination of circumstances helped get her quickly out of the shelter and into a rescue.
In mid-January, a supporter of the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue sponsored the pull fee for Taffy since she looked so much like the supporter’s dog who had just died. Then, on January 21st, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania agreed to take Taffy, if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, sought our assistance, and we agreed.
Taffy’s heartworm treatment took place on February 18th. We learned this about Taffy from Susan: “She loves everyone, both people and other dogs. She’s very polite and even-tempered. Taffy is a friendly and social gal with a gentle and sweet disposition!” To view more photos of Taffy, click here.
RADAR paid all of Taffy’s heartworm treatment costs totaling $273.
