Success Stories

Murphy4, November 2002


Far too many young Labs are subjected to neglect that leads to motor vehicle accidents. Such was Murphy's fate, when at the age of 1 and weighing about 60 pounds, this orphaned male chocolate Lab found himself injured in a shelter in Greeley, Colorado. Murphy was malnourished, and he had multiple abrasions, a dislocated hip, and kennel cough. Further, an x-ray revealed that in spite of his young age, he had already healed from a gunshot wound inflicted in the past.

Fortunately for Murphy, his rescuer was determined to get him appropriate care and a good permanent home. The repairs to Murphy's dislocated hip involved cutting off the ball joint and reconnecting muscles, but he recovered nicely, and his rescuer fostered him in her own home. "Murphy is great" she told LABMED. "I have a six-year-old and cats. I have people in and out of my home. NO aggression. He is a 'leaner'. He leans on you for affection."

Murphy's fate changed dramatically thanks to his rescuer and his veterinarian, who granted a rescue discount, and LABMED, who paid part of Murphy's veterinary bills. Now Murphy has a second chance to get all the affection he deserves in his own forever home!
