This is Blackie the sweet senior black lab found wandering around Highcroft neighborhood.His owner doesn't want him anymore and plans to leave him behind when she moves.
He is a sweet older gent with hip problems, no fleas and pretty good teeth for his age. He let me check over him and his mouth. He loves kids and is very gentle. He has been left to sleep outside for years and at his age would really love a home where he had someone to love him. The old boy has got a couple of good years left.
The police did not take him away. He will be destroyed at animal control because of his age and his owner can't be bothered to take care of a dog anymore. Lab Rescue can't take him, they have their hands full trying to find homes for younger dogs. Senior dogs are almost impossible to place.
If anyone knows someone who can foster him or take him in please email Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is in the Raleigh, NC area
