Runner, September 2003
Written by Runner's rescuer's:
Money was needed to operate and drain the grapefruit sized cyst on the side of Runner's face. Poor Runner, a 7-month old Labrador Retriever mix, was apparently abandoned in the country. He sought shelter and love, following some little girls home. Unwanted there, he hungrily waited on their covered steps for two days until rescued by a passing motorist and brought to Animal Savers of California.
Unfortunately, Runner had apparently gotten a splinter, foxtail, or otherwise punctured his salivary gland, creating a severe infection and huge cyst. On July 8th, Runner's infected and damaged salivary gland was removed thanks to the generous assistance of LABMED and Judith Avalon. Also, thanks to our vet, who generously discounted the surgery. Runner's stitches are out and he is finished with his three weeks of antibiotics. Runner finally found his dream home with an 11 year old boy and his family. Thank you Deb and LABMED for making Runner's dream come true.
