Success Stories

Kahlua, March 1998


This lovely chocolate bitch was found wandering a county park with no collar or tags. Believed to be one to two years of age, Kahlua was held by a local shelter until the LELRC rescue was able to redeem her and place her in foster care. When examined by the rescue's veterinarian, Kahlua was found to be spayed and in excellent health...except for what appeared to be a partially ruptured cruciate ligament.

X-rays later revealed that Kahlua had an old, probably uncared-for injury to her knee which had produced a slight malformation of the bone and small bone chips in the joint. Two attending veterinarians felt it would be better not to do surgery after all. LABMED funded Kahlua's x-rays and anesthesia costs. According to Susan Bocciarelli, one of Kahlua's rescuers, Lu (as she is now known) is well on her way to a happy ending. "Lu is now out on trial to a very nice retired man who fell in love with labs after dogsitting for several months for his daughter's dog. He is very active, so Lu should be in her glory. It seemed to be love at first sight."
