Hi everyone, I got the following email from my aunt - if you know of anyone who can help, or if you can pass the info along that would be great. I don't know all the details and have asked her to send more (like location, contact info, etc.) My aunt is in the Chicago suburbs so I am assuming they are in the area.
Would anyone know of someone who may like an 8 year old female Lab? A
friend who's had her since she was a puppy has a little girl almost 1, and
on the 4th with all the fireworks the dog freaked out and snapped at his
little girl, so he's looking for a new home without kids for her. Otherwise
she's been a really good dog all these years. He is trying PAWS but doesn't
know if they have room, and he's also willing to drive quite far to take her
to a new home. He's afraid he may have to put her to sleep if a shelter
can't take her.
Here is an update from Bailey's owner:
We have had Bailey (female chocolate lab 64 lbs) since she was 10 weeks old. She is now almost 8 years old now.
She has really been a fantastic dog and companion to us all this time. We are very very upset about what happened and what the future has in store for bailey.
Saturday night July 3rd we gave bailey a sedative to help her sleep with the fireworks in our area (we live in the city). Sunday morning July 4th, I walked the dog and our 11 month old baby. 8 am the baby was crawling on the floor and went over to the dog. The dog literally just snapped at her and it was over in an instant. Baby Grace will make a full recovery but we feel like we need to find Bailey a new home.
I am willing to drive the dog to any town or city in the USA (coast to coast) to get her a new happy home. I really honestly think that bailey has another good few years of joy left in her life that she could share with the correct person or couple. I do think a home without young children would be best.
Any advice would really help. I am meeting my Vet on Thursday evening at 6pm to see if they know of any options and to also get Bailey a full physical
Thanks a lot and PLEAASE call or email me if you need any additional info.
I do have a phone number and another email - I just didn't want to post them because you know how those internet bots can be sometimes. If you can help Bailey out please contact them asap!!
Also, I just heard from Khyra that there is a missing doggie - he is on the east coast where it is really hot - if you are in the area and spot him let them know - the info is in his poster below.
