Default Free 1yr old Yellow Lab. Going on Vacation, He needs a home!!!

OK, I did it again. Last time it was 2 German Shepards. Now, I've picked up a stray yellow lab. He's been w/ us for two days. He's a very good looking fellow, including the half a tail that makes him look even cuter. His paws have little burns on them from walking on the asphalt in 100+ degree weather, trying to find his home. Just like any burn, as they are healing, they're hurting worse. You can see the pain each time he takes a step. I really hope they heal quick, it hurts me watching him.

We've got signs up, classified ad running, and notices at local vet's offices and kennels. I'm going to give the owner until Saturday to claim him. If he doesn't by then, Sunday morning I'm looking for a new home for him. I'll have some pictures of him up tonight.

If anyone is looking for a good younger yellow lab, keep this little guy in mind. He probably isn't full blooded, but from the looks of him, he is close. (He does still have all his "stuff" as my wife calls it). If he's not picked up, he will be available on Sunday for a good home.

I am taking him to my vet tonight to get him a clean bill of health.

Man, when I lived in South Carolina there were stray dogs everywhere. As someone who was a very avid distance runner, I had to try to out run or face-off with many of them. SC needs to get them some more dog catchers or something...

HAHAHA, I know. I grew up in a smaller SC town and was in the rural areas all the time. If I picked up every stray dog I saw, I'd need 100+ acres. Where I live now, there are very few strays. I do try to pick up dogs that are lost from their owners in the hope that someone does the same if my dogs are ever lost.

After I picked him up, I got into the sauce a little and got to thinking. "Hey, I already have a black lab and a chocolate/chesie mix. What I really need is a yellow to round out the mix."


Luckily I sobered up the next day. I definately do not need a third dog either.

Would love to see a pic of the fellow. Is he pretty calm (porch dog) or his he more likely to chew the mudflaps off my Suburban like my last Chocolate lab?

I'll put one up tonight, POE. It's really hard to say right now how much energy he's going to have. Right now, he's pretty much content to lay down calmly because all four of his pads on his feet have burns on them. But as they're healing right now, he's picking up some energy. He is a puppy still, so I'm guessing he'll have a good bit of energy. About the chewing, he hasn't chewed anything at our house yet, except a rawhide. I should know a little bit more about his tendencies in a day or two once his paws stop hurting.

I got tied up last night and wasn't able to put a pic up. I'll get some up in a few minutes. I have been ordered, however, that the current owner has one week to claim him, that means Tuesday, not Sunday like I had planned. God, I sure hope this doesn't cause my wife to fall in love w/ him and want to keep him.

Also, he got a clean bill of health last night and also got all his shots. The vet did recommend he get a parvo booster in about 3 weeks.

I have the dog. He is putting a good word out for rescue labs, which I have to agree with. Our adopted chocolate is awesome. I think this guy also has the great potential to be a great pet to someone. He is so greatful for being found and resuced.

I was just showing off my rescued lab in hopes of helping to place neckbones dog. Sorry for the confusion, if you read the post you will see that I copied neck's post into mine. My dog is not up for grabs!

As I said, it doesn't take much to confuse me!

neckbone,

I would love to take the guy in, but we've already got another adopted lab (now ours) and a stray puppy that I found that we're fostering as well. Some of the people in this world that let these guys go should be shot or maybe worse dragged behind a boat thru some shark chum. It's shameful the way some people treat animals.

On that note if anyone in the SW Florida area is looking for a puppy (approx 5 months)to adopt, we've got a little guy waiting (he's a mix). I'll try and post pics later.

Soak the dogs paws in Epsom salt/water mixture. Same thing was wrong with a dog we found. They healed 10 times quicker than normal. I know it sounds funny, but fill a little tub and have him stand in it for a couple minutes. Only need an inch of water in it if that.
Good luck

Has the dog been spoken for and Where are you located - Columbia?

- one handed typing with the baby on the shoulder sure is fun...

Reel,

No, he hasn't been spoken for yet. We're going to give his owner (if he has one) until Tuesday to claim him. Yeah, I'm In Columbia.

Poe,

It's been decided that he is probably only one year old right now. Therefore, he is still mainly puppy. He hasn't chewed anything he shouldn't have in our house yet. He has chewed the heck out of rawhide bones though. I expect he would be like most any lab puppy, and if he gets bored, he'll look for something to chew. Just make sure there's a steady supply of rawhide bones for him to pick from.

OK, people. This guy is officially up for adoption. Someone give him a good home. Three dogs is just too much for us. He really needs a home this week.

BTW, if it helps, so far, he is cat friendly.
