Soo..... again with my sister in law, she is ridding herself of pets. She
also has a yellow lab who I *believe* is about three years old. Bailey
lives a rather meager existance, she is a normal hyperactive lab with
absolutely NO obedience training at all. She has never been allowed in
the house, so when ever she gets into the house she goes bananas and
gets a serious case of the zoomies. She is almost never allowed any inter-
action with people so she goes bannas around people, too. She lives in a
5x10 chain link kennel outside, and when it's too cold or she barks too much
she comes into her airline crate at the back of the house in the laundry
room. Once a week, usually on Sundays she gets a 45 min to an hour walk,
and that is pretty much Bailey's life.
There is nothing wrong with her physically, she had parvo when she was young
so she is undersized. Really she just needs someone who will love her
for what she is: A dog who is excited about life and wants to be a part
of someone's family. The way that this dog lives has long been a point of
contention with me, I feel like it's borderline abusive. I want her to go somewhere
where she can get some basic training and live the good life as a house pet.
I am TOTALLY convinced that once she gets the opportunity to be in a house
she will calm right down. If I didn't have so much on my plate right now I would
take her myself.
She is up to date on shots and spayed, no known health problems at this time.
Again, I'm in Eastern Washington but would be willing to drive a bit or even ship.
