Lab Rescue were contacted by a fellow who had a friend's dog, Dutch. His friend had to go overseas at short notice. This fellow was hoping to find a lovely home for Dutch but time ran out before his move to a smaller property. With his own dogs, he didn't have room to keep Dutch and wanted to make sure he went to a good home. He had Dutch desexed upon receiving him and offered to drive him to Sydney or Canberra whichever was most suitable for Lab Rescue. We put him in touch with a lovely home on our waiting list and would like to share the happy ending :-). Note: he had an issue not wanting to climb up open stairs ;-).
We picked up Dutch today and oh my god, was a beautiful dog he is!
He is so placid, so calm, so well behaved, we are in love already!
He has had a pretty good day also, lots of cuddles, a sleep in front of the fire place, a walk and a swim!
We have even managed to get him to go up the stairs (with a food bribe) so I am sure eventually he will be OK with them soon enough.
Dutch dog is not going anywhere!
Thanks for finding him for us, the kids are thrilled.
