Little Violet came into care, at only 8 weeks old after she was advertised on a buy/swap site. Violet was listed by a breeder who was unwilling to treat her medical incontinence. Once in care, a specialist confirmed Violet had an Ectopic Uterus meaning both of her ureter tubes bypassed her bladder, resulting in her constant leaking. Through the generosity of Labrador Rescue supporters, $5,600 was raised for Violet’s cause and she underwent her life-changing surgery early March. So far, she is recovering well and the incontinence has improved drastically. Violet is an absolute darling and has thrived in the care of her foster carer. She will be up for adoption once she is fully recovered.
At Labrador Rescue, we say 'you can't change a dog's past, but you can write its future'. Here's a happy ending story of one of our girls, Patsy!
Patsy was found by a council officer. She was in very poor condition, with infections in both ears, severe skin problems and rotten teeth, as well as showing signs of having had a recent litter.
Once in care, Patsy was treated with antibiotics and was given quality food.
A good diet, regular baths and a whole lot of TLC, six weeks later Patsy was a changed girl!
She's now with her adoring new family in Melbourne where she has settled right in.
