Morning y'all. I'm in a bit of a pickle with this senior lab I adopted. Turns out he's been my mystery predator for 5 or so birds. A few nights ago he went on a little murder spree and killed three; I found the bodies stacked neatly in the azaleas. The fourth is plucked bald from shoulders to tail.
So I need to find him a home. He's not good with chickens, but he's good with kids, cats, and other dogs. He's a really good family dog or yard dog. We've got him house and crate trained. He will sit and stay before eating, and we were working on "lay down."
He's a chocolate lab, 8, not neutered. We got him in October and I worked with him on the chickens and he was doing really well! But it's getting to be our busy time of year and I'm not going to have time to retrain. His previous owner said he was a good duck dog, but we haven't tried him on that. I do know he has a soft mouth.
If y'all wouldn't mind spreading the word or watching for folks who would want a dog, I'd appreciate it. I'll deliver him anywhere in the state or east of Beaumont.
He really is a good boy, and I've championed for him and worked with him for several months. He's just never been a good fit for us, like a hexagon peg and an octagon hole.
