Reeses, July 2003
Reeses was surrendered to West Michigan Chocolate Lab Rescue by his owners when he needed surgery to repair a torn cruciate ligament. The owners were unable to afford the surgery. The rescue group felt that the big yellow male Lab had a wonderful temperament and was deserving of their help. They found a vet who would perform the needed surgery for a greatly discounted price, and requested help from LABMED to cover the remaining costs.
The outlook is good for Reeses to make a full recovery and regain the complete use of his leg again. Then Reeses can resume his ball-playing activities with the lucky new family who adopts him.
Update, August 2003
Reeses has a new home!! He was adopted last night by previous Lab owners who have two small children (and he loves children!) who have a home of almost all hardwood floors. (Reeses is suspected to be allergic to carpeting so this is FANTASTIC!!) His surgery went very well and he is romping along. I think he is going to miss the other dogs but will do very well with his new family. Another success story for LABMED and West Michigan Chocolate Lab Rescue!!
