Just wanted to let everyone know that the foster situation is covered for these 2 abandoned labs
The older one may be adopted on Monday, so we may be fostering 1 or both. I'll post more photos, videos and descriptions on my website when we pick-up the dogs (after neutering) along with their training progress. The Hollister rescue worker thinks the younger one may have good dock diving potential (good ball drive and big jumper) so we'll definitely be introducing that training too and bringing them to ISE San Mateo if not placed over the holidays. Maybe another Smoke?!
Stacie, I heard you might have an interested home already -- yeah! Feel free to send people my way at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Here's the info Sandra and I received from the Hollister rescue about the dogs so far:
One is a 1 1/2 yr old black will-be-neutered male, real good tempered and loves to play, the second is a 5-6 yr old black neutered male (may be closer to 4 but has had some hard times). He is also good tempered and loves to play. They came to the Hollister animal shelter pretty boney. The house they came from was foreclosed on. They both have been temperment tested and checked for food aggression. Other than being hungry we had no problems.We had named the 1 1/2 yr old Jack and the 5-6 yr old Zack. They did come in together, but have been around other dogs with no problems also. Photos at http://baddawgrescue.com/shelterdawgs.html.
I do have someone coming to visit Zack on Mon. I think Jack would be an awesome dog. He is still very thin, but he can jump straight into the air and touch the top of his kennel. He is a young dog, maybe 1 1/2 at the most. Definitely a purebred Lab.
Thanks for everyone's help in this rescue!
