D'AWWWW!!!
Bless you. My cat brought home a dog two years ago. Turned out to be a miniature Schnauzer, female, 1 1/2yo. A friend with another, same, and same age took her, and she's spoiled to death, pretty much bc her DD claimed the new dog as "hers."

Seems like I get new rehomes all the time! Every LOVES to dump dogs out here... Luckily, my vet is awesome and gives me all I need at cost. (Meds and such).

I just found the other dog a home a month ago.

These pups just need a little TLC... good thing about puppies is they recover almost instantly, like hitting a reset button!

They really are pretty good looking dogs. They showed up Saturday night- underweight (not dying, but bones were sticking out) and a bit anemic from fleas, but they are bouncing back. They have been gaining 1lb every day (or every other day).

Even Saturday when I gave them food, they didn't cause a fuss when reaching into the bowl- I could take food out of their mouths and give it back to them. Typical "lab" mouth- real gentle. (I'm kinda a fanatic about dogs not showing any aggression with food or toys, and like to nip it in the bud).

They have been staying outside, my significant other is only able to sleep about 4 hours a day (he's working a lot), so I decided against working on crate training (crying and such reduces sleep capabilities). But, only 1 is really horrible at it (green one).

They are good with the cats, and the duck... they are not so sure about the horses. The horses terrify them, lol.

Bringing it to the top!

These girls are doing awesome! They still are looking for homes! Smart, lovable puppies. Not overly hyper or lazy- just good all around pups! You KNOW ya wanna take one home !!!

(BTW, I am more than willing to give them their puppy shots, but rabies and heartworm have to be done by a vet).

I will post more pictures when I get them.

Feel free to reply to this thread or message me, can arrange for you to meet them!

*** Update on puppies ***

All are doing well, still up for adoption.

The original owner/breeder was found- Yes, the puppies are lab*. Yes, they said keep the puppies and find them homes.

Here's what I know (it's a little shaky, 'cause I don't speak spanish)

1) I saw the parents, both on site. One is a chocolate lab, the other is a black lab.
2) They appear to be from British (working dog) lines, rather than American (show) lines (stockier build, more working dog than the slimmer, "pretty" lines)
3) I couldn't really understand if the parents are registered or not, but I know the puppies aren't.
4) Puppies (as suspected) didn't have any vetting done.
5) Considering the language barrier and circumstance, I didn't even bother asking about hip dysplasia- but the parents (from what I could tell) didn't appear to show any signs that would peak suspicion, but considering the breed- I would be wary of it for any future adopters.

* Considering how they are kept, outside and without being fenced in, there may or may not be a different dog that "snuck in the back door" and contributed to the puppies daddy-hood.

Thanks!

These puppies are so cute, but just to clarify about labs:

American type labs are traditionally considered from American Field Trial lines. They are often very slim, very energetic, and have a very high prey drive.
My American FT lab is an intact male yellow going 60lbs. He is 3 years old.

British labs are often more blocky and heavier than the American counterparts. They are often a bit easier for the average joe who wants a couch dog. British dogs bred for field work are bred to pick up feathers AND fur... Which you might want to consider if you have beloved pet rabbits.

BENCH BRED labs are the show dogs in America. They are super heavy dogs, going 100 lbs or more, blocky, typically have no desire to hunt or really retrieve.
They are nice for a sofa dog.

These pups look a bit heavy to be from true working American lines which is actually a good thing if you want a calm cute pet lol.

Thanks for the clarification! I thought the American lines were for show, but as I don't particularly like them, I haven't really done much with them. I just knew, appearance wise, they were of a slimmer build.

I agree these pups don't look like they are from American lines, they are pretty stocky (as are their parents.

Like I said, the puppies are actually better off not being from field lines

They sure are cute, being a lab person I would so bring one home if I was closer
