Dylan2, September 2002
As told by his rescuer...
This is Dylan, a 4 month old Lab mix. He hasn't been around for long, yet already has had to learn that this world can be very cruel. Dylan was beaten for doing what puppies love to do... chase things. He was kicked so hard his back leg was severely fractured and he had blood in his lungs.
Dylan was relinquished by his owner to foster parents who adore him, but couldn't pay the cost for surgery. The break was so bad an orthopedic surgeon was required to repair the leg.
Thanks to LABMED, Dylan's surgery has been paid for and he's on the
road to recovery! If it weren't for LABMED he would never have been able
to romp and play freely like a normal dog. Dylan is such a brave
boy--after all he's gone through, he still loves people! Thirty minutes
after his surgery he was trying to wag his tail and give kisses! Dylan
has found a safe and permanent home now with a loving family who adores
him! Thanks to LABMED, this is another happy ending!
