Ended up signing up for a blk. fem. Have to wait for stitches removed from where collar had wrapped under front leg and had to be sewn up. Good temperment and nice manners. Should make an easy dog to work with. Not to big, 60#. Should be able to get her in a day or two.
My dog wasn’t a ‘rescue’ dog per se but her first owner was a real A hole. When we got her, she was scared to death of men and about everything really. It is amazing what time, affection and caring will do for a lab. My girl has done a 180 and is now a pretty good hunting dog. She will never be a trial dog or do 200 yard blinds retrieves but she hunts hard, protects the house and her ‘mom’ ( my wife) like no other and has kind of grown to like other people but still doesn’t trust anyone but my wife and I.
