Taking on a Rescue Pedigree Black Labrador?

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

A colleague has asked me to take her friend 3 year old black labrador… free of charge.

It has not been wormed, chipped or spayed or had flea treatment

However an interferring colleague said that I should pay for it seen as I am rescuing the dog. But I thought that if it is a pedigree, it should have all those things done to it as standard.

Am I wrong?

Obviously the friend didnt look after the dog, hence wanting it to be adopted. If you are interested in rescuing him, just take him and get him his boosters, wormer and chip. Your local shelter might be able to help you. If you bring him in and tell them you have rescued him from neglecting owners and you want to keep him but you are looking for some help with the initial costs,. they might even give him his vaccinations to help you out.

Best of luck

My 8 Month Old Black Labrador Retriever Is VERY Missed Behaved and Be Still Bits. Is This Normal?

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

When we bought our dog we knew labs were a very active dog. Our dog , Jake, is 8 months old now and he’s still very missed behaved. He climbs things bites ( not hard but it still hurts ) steals stuff and brakes every thing. We love him and he’s perfectly potty trained and stuff but is this biting and other stuff normal?
Please help

This is normal for a dog who hasn’t had proper training. Have you considered taking obedience classes to help you know how to deal with your dog?

What is the main difference between these 2 breeds ? ( I am talking about female dogs )
which is more placid, more docile, more loyal, easier to train, more eager to please and friendlier.

Black lab retriever. I have one. She is the smartest and cutest dog ever

Will My Black Labrador Get a Long With My New 3 Month Old Jack Russel Terrier?

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

My black lab is a little aggressive although he has gotten along with most dogs (including the other dogs I have). How will I know if he can get along with a pup of a new breed? Will he get Along with my new pup?

right i had a similar problem and it led to my bulldog trying to kill my baby staffie if you think or know your lab is aggressive then i would make the puppy pack leader ie having him on the sofa with you holding the lab and making him watch the puppy eat might help but when there aggressive its hard for them to deal with a puppy what i wouldent do is have the lab and pup on the sofa together other way is getting proffesional help or really consider not bringing a puppy into your pack anyways good luck you sound like you have your hands full already!!

What Is the Maximum Height and Weight for Black Labrador Retrievers ?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

If you buy a Black Labrador Retriever when they are 10 weeks old and you feed them properly how tall and how heavy they will be by 3 years of age ?

The dogs coat color has nothing to do with it’s size. That is pretty obvious. Breed standards are Nothing but an " ideal, show quality requirement. Every dog in every breed can vary from the standard. Expect ANYTHING. I have seen registered labs anywhere from 40 pounds to over 120 pounds.
