Teddy and his brother are two peas in a pod! On October 20th, this eight-year-old Rottweiler mix arrived at the Fairfield County Animal Control and Adoption Center in Winnsboro, South Carolina, alongside Nicko, a seven-year-old Shepherd mix. The two of them were surrendered after their family made the decision to move and couldn’t take Teddy and Nicko with them. As senior dogs, the two brothers were at risk, and that wasn’t the only thing they had to worry about: they also both tested positive for heartworms.
On November 6th, Samira Yaghi, the volunteer networking and rescue coordinator at the Fairfield County Animal Control and Adoption Center, reached out to RADAR to ask if we could help with both Teddy and his brother. If we could assist in the cost of their heartworm treatment, they would have a much greater chance of being pulled by a rescue or getting adopted. We agreed, and they both received their treatment on November 16th!
These two brothers have been through some tough times, but they knew that they could lean on each other and find comfort in each other’s company. Samira told us that Teddy and Nicko are both very sweet and loving, and they also appreciate attention from humans as well! To see more photos of Teddy, click here.
RADAR paid all $275 of the heartworm treatment costs for Teddy.
UPDATE! All funds for Teddy have been raised! Thank you!

UPDATE! After being in a temporary foster home for about 1-1/2 months, Teddy and Nicko were transferred to Dog4U on March 1, 2018, and the next day they were transported to Buddy Dog Humane Society in Massachusetts!
UPDATE! Teddy has been adopted!
