Adam2, August 2003
Adam2 is the August Max's Memorial Fund Dog
It was just by accident that Adam's rescuer was in her local SPCA shelter near Poquoson, VA when the young yellow Lab-mix came to her attention. Adam had been adopted, but had been returned to the shelter when the adopters discovered that Adam had a serious problem with his hips and appeared to be in considerable pain. Believing that the 7 month old puppy deserved a second chance, his rescuer took Adam home with her. Adam's sweet personality had won the hearts of many of the shelter workers, and several of them had tears of joy in their eyes when Adam left with his rescuer.
Adam was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia, requiring surgery on both hips. With surgery, Adam's prognosis is good. Although Adam will never be a "Frisbee catcher", due to the amount of muscle atrophy in his rear legs, he will be able to move reasonably well without pain and have a good quality of life.
LABMED was contacted and agreed to help fund the surgery to repair Adam's hips. In the meantime, the family of his rescuer fell completely in love with Adam and adopted him permanently! We wish Adam and his family many years of happiness together.
