Tracker was just trying to track down a good life when he arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter on February 21st. Sadly, it was clear that this poor three- to four-year-old Hound mix hadn’t been living the good life. He was too thin, weighing in at a mere 43 pounds, and he was heartworm positive. During his time at the shelter, Tracker gained some of that much-needed weight, but being heartworm positive lessened his chances of being rescued or adopted.

To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Tracker, provided that his heartworm treatment was taken care of. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to us on June 8th to see if we could help. We agreed to assist, and he was safe! Tracker received his heartworm treatment on June 9th.

“Tracker is what hound-lovers love in a hound,” Susan told us. “You can’t miss him with his stately stature, his striking tricolor coat, and long floppy ears. Tracker saunters up to anyone and everyone to say hello. Two-legged and four-legged, he doesn’t meet a stranger. Tracker has that beautiful hound bay, and he may sing if he catches a scent. Most of the time, he enjoys being with his family.” Be sure to view more photos in Tracker’s gallery.

RADAR paid all $313 of the heartworm treatment costs for Tracker.

UPDATE! All funds for Tracker have been raised! Thank you!
