Tuesday’s Tails: Adopt a Dog!
My Tuesday’s Tails posts are written in honor of Phe, or as we called her…Princess Phe. I would never have started this blog hop if it hadn’t been for her, so this one is for you Phe. Let’s see if we can’t help get some doggies and kitties adopted!
This is the Blog Hop that features shelter animals. Find a cat, dog, rabbit, etc. at your local animal shelter or rescue and feature them on this Blog Hop! Come join the fun and help a furry friend find a forever home! And while you’re at it, don’t forget to visit the other blogs and share their doggies, cats, rabbits, and all the other animals that need forever homes on your social media sites. Please spread the word!
Dog Adoption is the Best Way to Go!
JACCO is a gorgeous neutered, chocolate and white Labrador Retriever mix. At our house we are kind of partial to Labs, so we thought JACCO would be the perfect dog to feature for adoption! JACCO is about 4 years old and has been at the shelter since April 21, 2014.
To find out more about JACCO, you can call the Edmond Animal Shelter at (405) 216-7615 and ask for information about animal ID number A023029.
We thought you might like to know a little more about Labrador Retrievers if you aren’t familiar with this dog breed. Mommy and daddy have had several Labs, and of course, I am a Lab! Teddy is a Lab/Great Dane Mix, and Shiloh and Summer were pure bred Labs. Labs are even-tempered, well-behaved and they get along well with children. They are athletic and playful and they make great family pets. If they didn’t make great family pets, they probably wouldn’t be one of the most popular breeds in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
They are often trained to be working dogs and they are often found helping the blind and people with autism. Labrador Retrievers are also trained to be therapy dogs and perform screening and detection work for law enforcement and other official agencies.
Hunting School Didn’t Work Out So Well For Me!
Labrador Retrievers are also known for their hunting skills. I (Scout) was suppose to be a hunting dog and was sent off when I was a puppy to hunting school. I spent 6 months in Texas learning how to be a hunting dog. On my first hunting trip, things kind of went south. I was with another hunting dog…an older Labrador Retriever, and we were sitting there waiting for the humans to shoot the guns so we could go retrieve the birds. When the guns went off, that other Lab turned around and bit me on the nose and it hurt really bad. I ran and hid under the truck. I have a big scar on my nose and needless to say, I’m very gun shy. All that training to hunt went down the drain when that other dog bit me on the nose. So now instead of hunting, I lay around the house all day! I guess getting bit on the nose wasn’t so bad after all!
So see, we know that JACCO would be the perfect dog for any family! Labs are great dogs and JACCO really wants to be adopted! Please help us find somebody to adopt JACCO! Spread the word and make a difference!
