Nugget, June 1998
Nugget, an outgoing yellow boy between the ages of 1 and 2 years old, was picked up as a stray by animal control. Shortly thereafter, he was placed in the care of Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), a non-profit humane society in Milledgeville, GA. Like so many unwanted and abandoned Labs, Nugget is a typical teenage Labrador in need of leash manners and obedience training. But his rescuers were even more disappointed to learn Nugget's health had been neglected as well. A veterinary exam revealed Nugget was suffering from a deadly but preventable case of heartworms. Thanks to ARF and LABMED, this cutie will soon be healthy and available for adoption to a family ready for the challenge of an energetic labra-teen.
UPDATE July 1998:
ARF reports that Nugget has been adopted by a very nice family. Nugget's new home has a lovely fenced in back yard where he can romp and play. They have found Nugget to be a very happy and intelligent dog who sits, shakes hands (both), stays, and plays ball. He loves rawhides, and squeaky toys, too. Nugget's adopters understand the importance of his follow up care and will begin obedience training him soon. Good Luck to you Nugget!
