Thought I might share Potter's interesting story over a few posts.
One of our volunteers noticed an ad for Potter in the classifieds
FREE to good home. 3yr old male labrador- beige in colour
very nice dog, regretfully 4 yr old daughter is scared of dog. he is a little active needs older kids or active people , he is very beautiful and has a sweet nature. loves company. Needs some training. please email or phone
... so offered our assistance. Surprised to find out it was placed by a friend with the owner's permission
hi, I am doing this for a friend, they can't do it. He is a beautiful dog but he can't join in with family as their little girl is scared of him. what is the process?
Our volunteer drove 2 hours (4 hour round trip) to pick him up and let us know when he arrived
Just got back from collecting Potter from .... 3 yo entire pure yellow lab. Nice looking boy – seems healthy. Friendly, travels well in car. Been kept in a small (< my kitchen) concrete run without sunlight for at least the last 2 years. For the last 9 months his owners haven’t even lived at the house and he has rarely been let out of the run. Never had any training and never been inside a house. No papers except signed surrender form and signed C3A microchip transfer.
I’ve booked him into the vet to be desexed and vaccinated tomorrow.
Will take some photos for a poster this arvo.
Potter does not know how to play although he is friendly and confident. Jack is trying to teach him how. He jumps up a lot!!!
Phew! Potter was in Lab Rescue care ready for a second chance.
