Four-year-old Rudy was found in rural Arkansas with an infected gunshot wound to his leg. A shelter partner called us for help with this good-natured chocolate Lab, and we soon had him seen by a local vet for the wound treatment he needed. Before coming to us in Colorado, all our out-of-state Labs are tested for heartworms. Unfortunately, Rudy tested positive. He will undergo a three-month treatment protocol at our expense before coming to us – including medication, special injections, hospitalization and strict rest. Rudy will generously be fostered by a rescue partner in Arkansas and, once recovered, he will be on his way to us to find his new family.
