Oh boy, it’s Troy! This two-year-old Bully Breed mix (perhaps Mastiff-Shepherd) arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County in South Carolina on June 4th. He was brought in by law enforcement as a stray, and there was no background information on him. Unfortunately, somewhere in Troy’s travels, he picked up heartworms. This, coupled with being a Bully mix, makes it a lot harder for dogs like Troy to find rescue or adoption.
There was still hope for Troy though because Wet Nose Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in pulling Troy from the shelter, provided that his heartworm treatment would be taken care of. Ruthie Rish with MAMAS contacted RADAR on June 24th to see if we could help, and we agreed to assist. Troy received his treatment just three days later on June 27th!
Ruthie told us that Troy is sweet and gets along well with other dogs, and has lots of personality! “He’s an incredibly deserving dog and we are thrilled to have a rescue who will take him,” Ruthie said. His rescue told us that Troy is a “teddy bear of a doggie! Troy is a sweet, friendly, fuzzy, calm boy!” Click here to view more photos of Troy.
RADAR paid all of Troy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $270.
UPDATE! All funds for Troy have been raised! Thank you!
