Stewie's Story...
Completely helpless and alone, Stewie the 8 month old Black Lab puppy lay chained to the ground outside, in antagonizing pain WITH A BROKEN LEG!!!

His owners have kept him chained outside alone with NO shelter his entire short life of 8 months. He has not know love, companionship, trust or safety.

Being the puppy that labs are, he managed to get his chain wrapped around his leg as he was exploring his limited living space one morning. He soon realized that the chain was tangled around his leg. He was trapped which made him panic! He started to scream out in pain as he thrashed, pulled, yanked and scramble to get out of the tangled mess around his leg. All the while his family never came out to help him.

Then his leg broke..... Between the shoulder and the elbow. His family never came to help him.

He sat outside alone, in horrific pain for a WEEK until neighbors noticed him limping and told the family they had to get his leg looked at by a vet. ANOTHER WEEK went by and poor Stewie sat outside, alone in the heat with his leg BROKEN. Finally a neighbor came over and demanded they hand over the dog or they would have animal abuse charges brought against the owners. Without a moments hesitation, they handed their dog over and were happy to wash their hands of him.

Dogs Deserve Better Nashville was contacted and Stewie was immediately rushed to the vet. The leg was x-rayed and found to be badly broken. He needs surgery ASAP and his leg was repaired Wednesday September 22nd.

What a blessing he will be for the lucky family who adopts him. He is as sweet as they come. Even in the horrible pain he was suffering, he still wagged his tail and wanted to limp over to give us kisses. Gentle and calm and full of love. He is so grateful for the companionship that he is dealing with his pain just to be close to us.

Thank god for the neighbor who could have easily looked the other way but would not let Stewie suffer another day.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stewie, a Nashville Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Nashville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Nashville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nashville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Nashville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nashville paves the way for another one to be saved.
