Hope5, December 2002
This sad little 4 month old yellow female Lab was released to Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc., after her short life had been spent in conditions of neglect and abuse. Her left front leg was broken in several different places, requiring repair with a screw and some pins. MLRR contacted LABMED for help in funding the surgical repair of this needless injury.
Quickly renamed Faith by her rescuers, the friendly and loving pup soon endeared herself to everyone around her. Faith's surgery went well, and she was soon up and wagging her tail and gobbling down her supper. Although she may have some arthritis in her elbow joint later in life, Faith is expected to be able to run and play like any other puppy once her leg has healed.
We were delighted to receive this update about Faith from her rescuer:
"I am happy to report that Faith went to her forever home yesterday. She was adopted by one of our past adopters so Faith now has another Lab sister (Maddie) that we rescued last year. Faith's fracture is all healed - and the pins were removed. We will keep you posted on her progress and will send updates for your website as soon as we receive them. Thank you for all your support. We couldn't do it without the assistance from LABMED!"
