Default Black Lab Rescue

My neighbor just rang my door bells, said he found this dog half dead in front of his door this morning, if I could help him out with that, cuz he had to leave.

The dog is in terrible shape, so I called Animal Control to pick him up and put him down. After I spent 5 minutes with him waiting for the AC to show, I decided to keep him for a few days, see if I can turn him around. He's such a friendly young animal...mostly Black Labrador:







It's hard to see, but he's skin and bones, covered with small cuts and dehydrated too. He could not walk, I had to carry him...at least he was standing up while eating..and boy was he hungry. I'm not sure I wanna know what happened to him.

He made it easy on me :







I think he'll be strong enough tomorrow to take for a walk.

Dexter is now at the shelter ready for adoption! Once he recovered, he started to be quite a pain in the butt. Got into a fight with Olliver twice and insisted that Doogle is prey, not another dog. But other than that, he was doing great, so I thought it was time to put him up for adoption. I hope he finds a great home!

Dexter was adopted this morning! I don't know any details, don't want to, makes it harder for me . Just knowing that he was adopted is all I need to know to make this a success story!
