Cocoa2, December, 1999
Cocoa was a stray picked up by the Indianapolis Humane Society. His owners never reported him missing or responded to Humane Society calls, so after six days this five-year-old dark chocolate boy became a homeless dog. But his loving Labbie personality won him a second chance through Labrador Retriever Rescue of Indiana (LRRI).
Unfortunately, Cocoa's former owners hadn't provided him with preventative veterinary care; he tested positive for heartworm. Before he could be adopted, he needed a treatment LRRI couldn't afford. Fortunately, LABMED was there to help.
Cocoa has come through his heartworm treatment well and is happy with his new family. They've renamed him Max, and spoil him along with his two Lab siblings. And his new mom likes to cuddle so much, she's teaching him how to be a lap dog - all 50 pounds of him!
