Meet Mr. Orbit. He is the latest arrival to LFS. He is a super super sweet 3-4 year old yellow lab. We don’t know what his past life was but he cannot have been that easy. He was so dirty that one bath was not enough. He currently weighs 56 pounds but he should really be 76. So off on a high calories diet he is (I so wish my doctor would prescribe this to me!). He has a skin infection and, of course, he is strong HW+. This said, he is on medications for the skin, we will neuter him as soon as he has put some weight on and after that we will start his HW treatment. It will take a couple weeks before he will be ready to go into a foster or permanent home but don’t let his issues confuse you: not many dogs have his personality. He is incredible!

Mr Orbit is doing incredibly well. He had his first of three HW treatments and he was a tropper. He is handsome and fluffy and everyone who meets him absolutely love him. Orbit will soon be done with his second treatment and he will be ready to go  to a quite home to relax.

    Ours was the same story as Gillian. 4 yr old black lab actually abandoned (left alone in outdoor pen, owners moved away!) until a neighbor heard him and put me in touch with him. Of course he was HW+ too, underweight, intact, AND had 2 types of parasites…2 yrs,15lbs and TONS of love later and we have THE most grateful, and loving (thinks he’s a lap dog) dog we’ve ever owned. Hang on Mr. Orbit, you too are about to cash in your winning doggie lotto ticket!! (he’s already won since LFS has taken him!!) LFS rocks.
