No, I would never take him to the pound, never.
My neighbor said he would take Jack, but he said he would put Jack outside all day in a dog pen, and then bring him in at night. And I just can't do that. I mean, I could do that here, although I wouldn't.

Jack is not a pure-bred lab, he is a mix. Will a lab rescue still help me?

Yeah, usually they'll help the dog if it kinda looks like the breed.

My friend runs a breed rescue group, and about 1/2 the dogs she rescues arent' even CLOSE to the breed she's "supposed" to be rescuing.

The chaz member Lizmo is from your area, maybe you could PM and see if you could get some help finding a rescue group?

I have a best friend also in that area, Geneva County, and I know it's not really the most dog-friendly area.... But maybe north Florida or possibly Georgia would have a rescue that would work.

Thank you so much Lizzy, yeah, this area tends to treat dogs "like dogs", for the most part. I'll try and post some pics of Jack, because I "think" he's a lab, folks tell me he's a lab, but it's very possible he might just be a "big black dog".

I had to make a flickr account, lol. Only have one pic so far.
This was taken 5-9-09, Jack was about 8 weeks old.
(I'll try to upload some more in a bit)

Jack 5-11-09




Jack 5-27-09 About 10 weeks old




Jack's most favorite pose!




This pic was taken tonight, 7-5-09. All of my pics are too dark I think.
And he's really much bigger than the pic looks.

Most likely a mix, for sure (the white on the paws), but I think he looks close enough to a lab to go to the rescue. One of the rescues said that behavior counts as much as looks, too. Good luck!

I added more pics to the post above, take a look.

Yeah, the white paws, I think that might be why the original owners abandoned him. Some labs get white paws, but they are not "desirable". I did some research on labs, and the white paws are somewhat common, but not what most people want in a lab. I originally thought he wasn't a lab, because of the paws, so I was pleased to discover that some labs have those white paws.
