A close friend had his golden retriever stolen- Its been 1 month today & its unlikely the dog is coming back home. We have contacted everyone and posted flyers everywhere..what a shame..he is truly missed. Its time to find my dear friend a dog. I have been looking for a black lab or even a chocolate lab , Male- A puppy would be nice, or even an older pup. heck, An adult would work if he was an affectionate, lapdog type who loves to play & go for rides in the car, non agressive & great with kids. I am having the worst luck finding one, Our local craigslists are over-run with people who do nothing but flag your posts all day long. He has no problem buying a dog from a shelter or a private party, it doesnt matter. The only breeders Ive found to have labs within a 100 mile range either dont have any ready, or have females..and WOW..I know nothing about Labs..never realized they sell for $1400 a dog. he doesnt need a top of the line showdog..he needs a great companion with a great temperment. So i thought id look on here to see if anyone knows of any local breeders or someone might have what im looking for. At this point hed prob be happy with a black lab mix..but finding a dog is not easy these days.
