Trader was hoping to trade his unfortunate condition for something better–and he did! This three- to four-year-old Hound mix came into the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on April 27th, along with another dog. The shelter named them Trader and Joe! Joe had the good fortune to test heartworm negative. Unfortunately, Trader tested heartworm positive and was in need of some assistance to trade his bad health condition for a healthy outcome.
Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania had rescued Trader’s friend Joe and wanted to rescue Trader too but needed financial help for his heartworm medical costs. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for RADAR’s help on May 18th. We agreed to help Trader, and he finished his heartworm treatment on May 25th.
“Trader is such a cool guy,” Susan told us. “When you’re petting him, he gets ‘the zoomies’ from excitement and it’s very cute. He also loves his food and getting treats so he will do a ‘happy dance’ when it’s time to eat. He does like attention but also likes to be off sniffing everything. Overall, Trader is a funny, goofy guy who is full of personality. He seems to be good with other dogs and is also good with cats.” Be sure to view more photos in Trader’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $232 of the heartworm treatment costs for Trader.
UPDATE! All funds for Trader have been raised! Thank you!
