Malibu, February, 2002
The February "Buddy Arnold" dog
This lovely, two year old black Lab was abandoned in a rural area of North Carolina. There were no rescue foster homes available in the area, but a rescue group in Pennsylvania heard about Malibu's plight and accepted him into their own rescue organization.
Placed in a foster home, Malibu proved to be a well socialized, housetrained Lab. His foster family reported that he was a friendly and gentle dog: "You can pretty much do anything to him! He rolls on his back so you can pet him, and he even let us brush his teeth. He's wonderful with the other dogs, including the 8 foster puppies we have."
Unfortunately, Malibu tested positive for heartworms, and the rescue group contacted LABMED for help in paying for the necessary treatment. We were glad to be able to help Malibu. He was neutered, his heartworm treatment was completed, and best of all - a family was found to adopt him!
Malibu is the February Buddy Arnold Fund dog. Read more about the fund here.
