On Tuesday, July 26th, a 75-pound chocolate Labrador retriever was struck by a vehicle on River Road on Johns Island and left for dead.

The dog was brought to the Charleston Animal Society, where his condition was stabalized before he was brought to an emergency clinic and treated for various injuries, including a fractured pelvis.

Now, the Charleston Animal Society is working hard to spread the word about the Lab, hoping that they'll be able to reunite him with his owner. The dog's story has been posted on The Charleston Animal Society Urgent Animals Facebook page, and photos of his sweet face, along with his story, have been circulating around the social media site.

By Thursday night, the chocolate Lab was off of his morphine drip and eating well--and even wagging his tail. The Society hopes to be able to find his owner, but is comforted that there are many people across the country interested in his wellbeing--some are interested in adopting the Lab.

We'll keep you up to date on the story as we hear more.

In the meantime, head over to the Facebook page and share the story--hopes are that the more it's shared, the more likely it will be that the Lab's owner will be found. And read more about this dog's traumatic experience over at The Post and Courier.
