Success Stories

Dakota, February 1998

Dakota No one knows how old this yellow boy is (estimate is 6 to 8 years), or what his life was like before he was surrendered to a California shelter with an injured left rear hock. Unfortunately for Dakota, his advanced age and injury meant he wasn't put up for adoption, but scheduled for euthanasia instead. The newly formed Southern California Lab Rescue stepped in after his time was up at the shelter. Veterinarians who examined Dakota discovered the joint had been crushed due to unknown trauma, embedding bone chips in the joint and causing him to lose use of his leg. Surgery was recommended to remove the bone chips and reconstruct Dakota's hock with pins, after which he would need several weeks of crate rest to heal.

With LABMED's help, Dakota received the surgery he needed to repair his hock. And thanks to Southern California Lab Rescue, Dakota is happily recuperating with his loving new family.
