Here's a short video of this handsome lab! He is becoming urgent!!! http://www.youtube.com/user/sherev?feature=chclk#p/a/u/2/J34QI0747Zs
From our contact: Pardon the horrid quality of this video but it is dark. You can see how laidback this guy is. He's waiting for attention from people nearby.
The story is that this Lab boy wandered up to a house a few weeks ago and made himself at home. The man said he'd have loved to have kept him but that he already had too many dogs. The report the shelter volunteer got was that he was "good with other dogs, cats & kids". However, he is evidently NOT good with chickens...:-) The man's neighbor had chickens, which the Lab couldn't get to, but the Lab was way too interested in them for his & their own good. So, he'll need a chicken-free home. Thus, we have no vetting records. It IS possible to get a heartworm test if requested. We can also get estimates for full vetting & health certificate.
Also, I must say that the sense of urgency there has increased as the ACO got a call today about multiple dogs & they've already gotten a bunch of dogs in today alone....:-( (we're working on S&N). THANK YOU!
Just a bit more information about the handsome one-eyed lab.... he is desperately looking for rescue/foster!! This lab boy is good with other dogs per shelter volunteer. They are going to try to call former owner for info about any prior vetting, cause of eye injury, to see if lived with kids, etc! I will post when I know more...
From our contact: He was quite fine with the male Aussie next door & he was SO respectful, quiet as he waited on all of us to quit talking....just silently wagging his tail & wanting some affection.
(ID#11892) He is amazingly calm & well-mannered. He can easily have basic vetting done & can easily be gotten to Charlotte &/or I-81. Thank you!
This handsome young adult Lab is missing his left eye and it looks like it may have been due to some type of injury (but I'm no expert here). He was turned in as unwanted & he is intact.
He stood quietly longing for attention as we came by to photograph him. Nice dog! He needs to be out by Thanksgiving.
