"All in good time" is one thing, but for Blacky it was a very, very long time. It was way back on August 21st of 2015 when Blacky was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. An eight-year-old Chow Chow mix, Blacky had spent his entire life tied outside. His owners decided that they no longer wanted Blacky, so off to the shelter he went. Not surprisingly for a dog kept outside and neglected, Blacky had heartworms.
