My Name is: Ruger; 4.5 years old

Medical Profile: 20 pounds underweight, skin and ear infections

My Story: I was left at a shelter when my busy family found I was too much trouble and appeared to be sick. The shelter called Safe Harbor when I seemed to be having a hard time getting well and thought I’d do better in a foster home. After a variety of tests to try and figure out why I was so thin, the vets determined that mostly I needed more food. Once my food was upped to six cups of high-quality food a day, I started plumping up nicely to a perfect 77 pounds! Medications and the good food help clear up my skin and ear infections. My foster mom thought I was a perfect Lab and I’m happy to add my new dad thinks I’m pretty darn perfect too!
