Joey, June 2003
Joey is the June Buddy Arnold Memorial Fund Dog
Joey was rescued from an owner who had run into financial difficulties and was no longer able to care for Joey properly. When Joey arrived at his new home, he was limping badly and unable to bear much weight on either of his hind legs.
A visit to a vet in Catonsville, MD, revealed that the friendly black Lab had torn the cruciate ligaments in both legs and would need surgery by a specialist to repair the damage. Luckily, the outlook for a good recovery and a return to normal activity after surgery was excellent. Everyone who met Joey was impressed with his good looks and the happy attitude he displayed in spite of his pain.
Joey's new owner wrote to us: "Joey is such a sweetheart, and it is so important to us to make him a healthy dog again. It's good to know that organizations like LABMED exist to help abused and neglected dogs."
With some financial assistance from LABMED along with a rescue discount from the vet, Joey received the surgery he needed and is well on his way to recovery.
