I was put into contact with a man trying to give away an older Labrador. After hearing the dog’s story, I have decided to find the previous owner of the dog, before attempting to adopt her out.
Here is Molly’s story:The Labrador wandered onto the man’s land in the Fall of 2006, (he is unsure of the exact month). His land is located in the 74000 block of Gottschalk RD, Covington, LA 70435. The physical address of the land is Covington, but it is located in Goodbee. Gottschalk Road is a dividing line for ST Tammany Parish and Tangipahoa Parish. She had very raw front pads (but not back pads) when she arrived on his property.
He assumed the owner of the dog would come looking for her eventually, so he left her on his property for several months. She did not wander off his property during this time. He said she loved to chase the deer off of his property. The man loved the dog, but his circumstances changed and he was no longer able to keep her. He was trying to do the right thing by finding her a good home.
I took her to the vet. She was not microchipped. She is heartworm negative. The vet believes she is 4+ years. She is starting to turn gray around her muzzle, but has very little tarter build up on her back molars. There are no signs of cataracts in her eyes. She is around 80 lbs. She is a very unique color. She is a dark yellow color, almost tan. She appears to be a purebred Labrador.
She prefers to be inside of the house. She is crate trained. I tell her to go in her crate and she walks right in. She also sits and shakes. She walks well on the leash. She is okay with dogs, but is definitely an alpha dog. She does not like cats. She gets very excited when she sees children. She loves to play fetch. She does not destroy stuffed toys.
Photos of her can be viewed at http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/ff229/johns233/Molly/ .
Please contact me at email@example.com for further information.
She's also been posted on Craigslist: http://neworleans.craigslist.org/pet/438765223.html
Does this yellow lab sound familiar to anybody? Does anyone know of a missing yellow lab from St. Tammany or Tangipahoa Parish? Or one that was rescued from NOLA and ended up in those parishes? This is definitely someone's dog.
Thanks for any leads.
