Sam3, August, 2000
Hit by a car and left by the side of the road Sam, a young adult male yellow Labrador, was taken by animal control officers to a central California shelter. A rescue worker was contacted, but even though it was obvious Sam suffered a broken leg, he had to spend three days in the shelter waiting for an owner to claim him before medical treatment could begin.
The rescuer first took Sam to her veterinarian. Sam's broken bones were beyond the capabilities of the veterinarian and it was recommended that he be euthanized. Luckily for Sam, the rescuer persevered and found an orthopedic veterinarian that was willing to try and help Sam. The surgery was successful.
Less than two weeks after surgery Sam is thriving at his foster home. His foster mom is having a hard time keeping him quiet! Typical Lab, Sam wants to play and get into everything.
