ugh long night, guess I'm a foster momma...lol
Not sure this is the right place for this post, but here goes anyway.
So yesterday we acquired a Black lab. 3 years old and nuts...lol. No he isn't staying but we are looking for a home for him.
He is such a sweetie for all he's been through. He was living with our middle son and his room mate. They acquired him from someone they new who got him from someone else. Poor Rex has no manners, no training and has been abused. Yet he retains that wonderful lab sweetness.
He has always been hand shy and afraid of stairs since I've known him and his off switch is hard to find. Doesn't like crates, but if you can get him in one he will settle nicely.
The boys took him cause they thought they could work with him, well working 50 hours a week isn't giving Rex enough time. Although he has come a good way with them, he needs and deserves more.
He is really really sweet, loves attention and will listen if you are gruff voiced with him. He's a runner though and isn't neutered. So I am going to neuter him and find him a home. We have a GR puppy coming in December and I hope to have this accomplished by then. However I will not let him go to just anyone. I've never done a rescue before but I have had a lab before and in one day he will sit to be pet, and lay down on command. The biggest issue we had last night was him trying to hump us. Well he has been persuaded that this perhaps is not the "right" thing to do and we will not tolerate it.
My biggest problem was him whining off and on last night, I need a nap...lol
