Ebony, September, 2000
Ebony was only about 18 months old in September 2000 when she was surrendered to a Humane Society near Savannah, Ga., to be euthanized because she was heartworm-positive. This tall, friendly black beauty had spent her short life chained outside and had already produced a litter or two. After her owner found out about her heartworms, he didn't want her any longer.
Poor Ebony, having spent her life outside, had never been housetrained, but she was friendly, loving, good with children, and intelligent--typical Lab traits. She just couldn't be put down. Her rescuer contacted LABMED and after assurances that Ebony would be spayed, we voted to fund her heartworm treatment and several days of boarding at the vet's while she recovered.
While staying at the vet's after her spay, Ebony got to meet another LABMED dog, Midnight, and they got to share a boneless chicken breast brought by the rescuer.
Ebony has recovered and is doing just great now! She is living with her forever family in Venice, Fla. Her new mom is a fire fighter and she and her husband are involved in search and rescue work. They have Ebony enrolled in the Search and Rescue Program. She is first and foremost a family pet but they would be delighted if she makes it through the entire program. There are children in the family and they keep Ebby moving and grooving--although it's not hard to crank her up!
