Hi everyone! I was just looking on Craigslist (bad, bad, bad, I know) to see what locals have put on there in terms of Goldens the past few days.

This poor old guy was listed Monday. I called the number listed, but nobody answered and there is no answering machine. His sweet face just breaks my heart. If anyone is interested and can get something worked out with the owner, I'm sure we can set up a transport to wherever.

Here's the ad:

http://columbus.craigslist.org/pet/1448787996.html

He is 9 to 10 yrs of age is about 150 to 200 lbs due to a thyroid problem and was on prednisone. Is now off it. I just don't have the time for him he needs to go to a good family is great with my kids my 19 month old sits on him alot and he dosn't care..no rehoming fee..740-400-4052

Blair, could you send the poster contact info for the local rescues? In addition to trying to find someone to take him, that might help the owner. It's so sad.

Well I called and spoke with the lady and she still has him. He is a very large boy that has a thyroid issue. He is great with Children and small dogs as the current owner has a dog that is about 15 pounds. They got him from a family that was going to take him to the pound

Any one have any ideas on how to get him down to Alabama? I would love to help him out. I let her know that I am located in Alabama and I was going to try and work out a way to get him down her towards me. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them

We could set up a GRF transport! Post the route and what you need, how far will she drive, how far will you drive? It IS doable!!!

I can drive to North Alabama like Huntsville. She said she could not drive to far from Baltimore but it would depend on where we needed her to go. She is right outside of columbus.

I have never had to set up a transport so any help would be appreciated.

We need to get him from Baltimore Ohio to Huntsville Alabama.

Ask if Blaire can drive any distance! :)

Post a new thread with that sad face, and call the lady and tell her you are taking him so she doesn't give him away or take him to the pound once we have invested all this time making a transport.

I have gotten dogs from Florida to Nova Scotia and from Florida to California on this board with these great folks! :)

I did Mapquest from Columbus, OH to Huntsville, AL and here is what it looks like-it's an 8 hr. trip.

It would probably take at least a week to fill the transport. You would have to have someone foster him or board him until he went on transport.

Sorry I don't understand your post or email. You live in Colorado?

There were comments on the Alabama transport page that "other" arangements had been made for this guy. I am assuming Luna2 is the other arrangements.

I don't live near Baltimore, but would pay one night's board somewhere if needed. I'm sorry, but due to really excessive vet bills of my own in the last week one night is all I can comfortably afford.

I hope this old guy gets somewhere and gets taken care of.......

I just spoke with the transport,and he can pick him up on thursday or friday.It was originally monday,but due to his size,he would prefer to pick him up on his way back to Colorado.I would love to find someone to foster him until then,if at all possible,and perhaps meet the transport.
