Petey2, November 2002
Petey is a handsome young black male found running stray with another doggie pal in Cincinnati, OH. After the couple who found the dogs failed to locate his original owner, they contacted Lab rescue to see if the boys could avoid the shelter.
Soon after Petey was off the streets, it was obvious that something was wrong. He was limping, and vet examination uncovered the injury to be a torn ACL ligament in this rear leg. Prognosis for the surgery was excellent for Petey, although the cost was too much for the rescue group to handle. Fortunately for Petey, his foster mom contacted LABMED for help with Petey’s surgical costs.
After reviewing his case and speaking with the vet, LABMED was happy to fund his ACL repair. Petey’s surgery was a success, and this boy is now on his way to a forever home. Recently, Petey wrote LABMED to update on his progress:
"My surgery was a huge success. I am quite content playing ball again and only occasionally limp if I run too much. I am still residing with my LAB RSQ foster family in Cincinnati until I choose my new forever family. I have certain requirements: they have to be dog people (so I can lay on a doggie bed), tummy rubbers, take me with them on car rides, and of course - avid ball players! They also have to be LABMED supporters after they hear my story. I will let you know when I find the right qualifications in a family! Thank you LABMED for helping fix me back up so I can chase a ball again! I am forever grateful and will be sure my new family visits your website!"
