Tucker was tucked away at the shelter for a long, long time. He arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on April 16th of 2016. Tucker, a three to four-year-old Bully Breed-Labrador Retriever blend, had an injured right front leg. X-rays revealed multiple embedded BB pellets. Following treatment and several weeks of crate rest, his leg healed nicely. But Tucker had another obstacle: heartworms.
After 15 months of waiting, Tucker finally had rescue interest on July 17th. If funding could be secured for his heartworm treatment, Virginia Paws for Pits would take him. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked for our help and we agreed. He received his heartworm treatment on July 25th.
When describing Tucker, Susan told us this: “Handsome and super sweet, Tucker is the total package! He’s friendly and playful and, oh my goodness, so kissy and loving! Tucker would be a great match for a family with other dogs and kids who are little older. Tucker loves hanging right by his humans so be prepared to find your new best friend!” To see more photos of Tucker, click here.
RADAR paid all $380 of the heartworm treatment costs for Tucker.
UPDATE! All funds for Tucker have been raised! Thank you!
