Roxy, a 1-year-old black female Labrador, was adopted through Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue by the Cribb family. Several months after being adopted Roxy displayed a limp and was diagnosed with a right rear torn cruciate ligament . It was determined this injury took place as a young pup before being adopted. Solution - Corrective Surgery for Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture.
Originally Roxy's new family feared they would have to send Roxy back into rescue so that someone who could afford the needed surgery might adopt her. It wasn't what they wanted to do, but felt it would be best for Roxy. Instead the Rescue referred them to Labrador Life Line for help with funding.
With LLL's help, surgery was performed successfully and Roxy has received the love and care she needed to recuperate properly. The Cribbs are thrilled to be keeping Roxy as a member of their family and recently wrote to tell us her stitches had been removed and she was doing fantastic. They're looking forward to this summer when they can allow her to go for an ocean swim again.
Labrador Life Line is proud to have been able to play a role in Roxy's surgery and recovery. Thank you all for your most generous support of LLL. Without you, we could not have done this!
