This past Sunday, we adopted a chocolate lab from a coworker. He recently divorced & moved into an apartment. He was looking for a home for Rylee, and my husband wanted her. He wanted that “manly” dog the could go fishing with him and pal around with him. We have 2 little bittie dogs at home (Ripley & Kelley) – both weigh under 10 lbs. Those two, those he loves them dearly, aren’t very manly. One is a Lhasa Apso & the other is a one-eyed Shitzu.
About 2 or so hours after he left Rylee with us on Sunday, the dogs all got into a fight. We tried a few techniques that one of my friend gave us (she and her daughter show dogs). They got into another fight on Tuesday. Since then, my little dogs are terrified of Rylee. They froth at the mouth & won’t go outside if Rylee’s out there. I called my coworker – broken hearted – that we couldn’t keep her. Unfortunately, he couldn’t take her back either. He tried the lab rescue, but they wouldn’t take her – I don’t know why. His only alternative was to put her into an animal shelter. A WHAT?
Of course, there is no freak’n way we’d allow Rylee to go an animal shelter, so Michael and I are trying to find Rylee a good and loving home. She’s VERY sweet and smart. She’s good around my kids and loves to go for walks around the neighborhood. She knows how to sit, lay down, shake (sometimes) and LOVES to chase balls, frisbees, etc. I was told she’s mostly housebroken – but I can tell you – she’s never had an accident over the 3 days she’s been at our house. She is also crate trained.
Rylee is a chocolate lab (she doesn’t have papers, but the original owner is going to contact the breeder) and is current on all her shots. She’s 6 or 7 month’s old and right now weighs 35lbs. Most likely, she’ll get to be about 50lbs (maybe).
