I'm glad you found her, and took her home. Luckily she didn't get run over. Kudos to you Lizmo for helping the pup. I'm hoping for a happy ending.

Me too. But I'm trying to not get attatched if something is wrong with her and she goes to a Lab rescue or if it's so bad that she needs to be PTS (Like it or not, I won't let her suffer if the vet says it's bad).

She's also got alot of scratches/cuts on her (they've been cleaned up tho).

Guys, geeze. I'm not doing to have the dog PTS if nothing is wrong. I do NOT have the funds for x-rays or surgery IF something is wrong. There isnt anything I can do about that. And I WILL contact a Lab rescue before I have her PTS IF something is wrong with her leg/hip.
Omg, what a face! I'm so glad you found her

And regarding the PTS thing, I think a few of us misinterpreted your first post. It kind of sounded like if the vet wanted to do any sort of testing, that you'd just automatically have the pup put down rather than put her in a rescue, etc. so I think some of us just panicked.

Just so everyone understands, and please correct me if I'm wrong but this is my understanding at this point.. The pup will be brought to the vet, and if it requires expensive testing and xrays you'll not have that done and try to find a rescue. The pup will only be put down if the vet declares her terminal or something to that effect otherwise she'll be placed with someone that can get her the medical care she may need.

I sent Zoomer an e-mail and a text message. She's tied up tonight, but she'll see it

If the rescue will take her and do what needs to be done, yes. If they won't and no one can taker her/do what needs to be done, I will have her PTS.

Thanks Renee

Oh the tail wags all the time. LOL And she's a Lab. She LOVES to dump her water over and play in it.

A-w-w...she's really super cute. I doubt that anything is so wrong that she'd have to be pts. A Lab rescue ought to be able to help and maybe a vet will take care of her pro bono since no one apparently owns her. (?) I can't imagine losing a puppy that young. It does seem like she was dumped. But who knows? Good luck. Kudos to you for saving her.

Well, dad said he saw a house off the road, back in the woods with a black female dog walking around. So we went and check it out - the man said he didn't loose a dog. That was about our only hope. No one in our neighborhood knows the pup.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do. This is very hard. I'm pretty sure nothing is wrong with her legs and she runs, jumps, sits, squats, etc fine. I think she might have been abused because she was VERY VERY hand shy when I first picked her up. Now she LOVES my family.

I think I might keep her a week and see if there are any lost ads in the paper.

If I take her to a vet what will they do? I just want to make sure she's healthy to be around my dogs.
