Buster2 and Dixie3, November, 2000
Buster and Dixie were surrendered by their owner to the Jacksonville Humane society. The owner left no information about the dogs but both of these young chocolate Labs were very friendly and super active. Dixie had been spayed but Buster was still intact when they came to the shelter.
BOTH of the dogs were heartworm positive; the shelter could not put them up for adoption because of this. They were rescued from the shelter by an organization called Animal Rescue Movement. ARM had them treated for heartworm and had Buster neutered. But like so many rescues, funds were low. Another rescuer told them about LABMED and they applied for funding for these two dogs. The vet gave both dogs a good prognosis and LABMED paid for the heartworm treatment.
Buster and Dixie will stay with their rescuers during the recovery period after the heartworm treatment. After they are completely healthy - and heartworm free - they will be ready for a new home.
