View Full Version : Urgent young lab x

18th August 2011, 09:30 PM
Hi I have had another phonecall from the vets today needing some urgent help. They have a young lab cross approx 7 months old, he is black in colour and unfortunately I can't get a pic. He was emaciated when he was found. He has been fed up, they have neutured him and will first vaccinate him and he has also been wormed. He had no training but will now sit and knows to wait for his food. He has no food aggression and is good with other dogs. He has however severely lacked socialisation and will bark at strangers when out, the vet nurse who had him has previously had a bad experience in a similar situation and this caused her anxiety which in turn made the dog worse which is why he is now back in the vets. She did say that he did growl at her husband once when her husband came down stairs but then he ran under the table and when moved to his crate settled and wasn't a problem, Louise feels sure he was beaten in his previous life and was confined somewhere. We have very little time for this boy,he ideally needs moving this weekend. Please can anyone help him?? :please2:

The lil one can come to me if all else fails - don't give up on him, its better than the alternative, I will work with him here and help to socialise him, I will work with the guys on here to find him a great home if needs be, thats if I can part with him ;)

Im working on Tuesday so could do with someone bringing him to me tomorrow if poss to spend some time with him & let him settle.

I'm here if he needs me :thumb:

PS Assuming he's not a lab x with a great dane :uh: lol!

Hiya Laura,

Thank you for your kind offer. Let me assure you we never give up on a dog that we have been asked to help.

I am pleased to update that this little fellow is going into a temporary foster home today until a suitable rescue space has been found for him. :doghug:
