There’s no need to sully this great dog Tully! Approximately two years old and a Rottweiler mix, Tully arrived at the Horry County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on May 14th as a stray. In addition to skin issues, he was heartworm positive. Tully’s only hope to live was if a rescue would take him; otherwise, he would be put down at the end of the day on May 22nd.
When Cathy Leinert, the founder of Cathy’s Rottie Rescue, Rehab & Sanctuary in Connecticut, found out about Tully’s fate on May 22nd, she sent a volunteer to meet him and dog test him. The volunteer reported back that Tully was super sweet, great with other dogs and definitely worth saving. Cathy quickly requested our help with his heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, and Tully was safe! He completed his heartworm treatment on October 1st.
“When Tully came to me back in May,” his foster told us, “he was a very scared boy. He would run from any movement and was scared by the simplest household items. He typically would be seen with his tail tucked firmly down. Very slowly Tully has been able to overcome many of his fears and find some confidence in himself. With his newfound confidence, and his full tail beautifully up, Tully has found joy in playing with other dogs, and he loves to independently play with toys. He loves to cuddle his head into you and give sweet kisses while receiving cuddles back. Tully loves meal time! He overflows with puppy-like excitement when he is about to be feed. His food motivation has helped tremendously in his learning.” To see more photos of Tully, click here.
RADAR paid all $215 of the final heartworm treatment costs for Tully.
