wolfy dog This is so exciting. I miss finding dogs in this area. I know that it is a good sign not having any strays around. In the past in an other part of "my" state I have found dogs, found them a new home after putting them back on their 4 feet. I remember them all.

It was an awesome little dog that we had for 11 years but I always felt that there could still be somebody to claim him.
His teeth are pointy, and mostly clean, a little plaque by the gums of his teeth but nothing a bone or toothbrush couldn't fix. And ya I am going to get vet records etc. You always seem to feel that way, even tho you know you've done everything you can to do the right thing.

I'd say he is yours then I would also worry about people seeing him and then wanting him and lying about him being theirs. Tricky one
Right, people are weird lol For how long he's been roaming in the high traffic area's if somebody wanted to snatch him, they could have than lol. And I would ask them a few question's. But I have been taking him place's with me, and nobody has mentioned anything, that and he'd have a tag with my name on it lol.. But until than, i'll keep looking for owner's

my sister is the lab expert, but I'd say he's a pretty nice specimen once he puts on some weight..Very nice looking..I'd estimate 1-2 ..So glad you took him in!
Thank You You wouldn't believe the weird looks, and some comments I got when I tell people he was roaming the streets, so I am trying to find owner's and until than i am feeding him etc. I'm like really people, wouldn't you do the same for a animal, but obviously not and that's why their are so many in shelter's and foster's. Quite a sad world this is

just call them and say hey do you have someone missing a chocolate lab
I did that today, and they said they don't have anybody looking for a male chocolate lab :/

He is beautiful!! I love labs, just lost my 17 Yr. old black lab to old age and I've got a yellow mix. I would guess he is 1 to 3, no gray on his muzzle yet at all. They are wonderful dogs. And I also can't understand how someone could let such a beautiful boy get away. But things do happen. I just sponsored a beautiful black lab into rescue which was found about the same way. The girl who found her couldn't take her in because she couldn't afford another dog, a relative heard about it and called be because we have retrievers. I couldn't take her but I did get her into a good rescue and she was placed in a forever home the first week. The girl who found the black lab tried for weeks to find her owners, checked with vets, hunting clubs, Petfinders all of the right things. But no luck. It's not unusual to find really nice dogs roaming free like that. And if I was in your place, make sure you get good ID and something to verify any "owners" who show up to make sure they really are the rightful owners. Looks like he found a great place for his new home!
Aw that's great! Glad she found a new home And ya i labs are good dogs, I also had them growing up And ya i have posted on like 4 diffrent sites, plus craigslist as well as facebook. Have flyer's up everywhere and contacted the shelter's and vets, and still no luck! It is crazy how somebody could let such a beautiful dog get out, and not be looking for him. And oh ya i am, i don't put pictures of the dog on the ad, just give a brief description and the people have to call and still answer some questions to make sure its his rightful owner. And if in 3 weeks or so, nobody has claimed him still, he definitely found a good home, with a sister lol

LaRen616 I'd say he's between 1-3 years old.
