This young guy was picked up by my friend on top of Laurel Mountain. He had been spotted there for at least 4 days...probably dumped there...and no one stopped to get him. :( The vet said he looked like the two female BC puppies she had in her clinic when they were babies about 8 months ago - dumped in exactly the same spot - so he may be a littermate the owners had kept, and then decided to dump him also. :( He is about 8 or 9 months old. I was over to see him tonight. He is responsive to a sit command, and is very responsive to coming and sitting for a treat. My friend vetted him for shots and a check-up. He is currently living in the Ligonier area, about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh. PM me if anyone is interested.

thanks :)

What a handsome boy! Kudos to you and your friend for working hard to help him out and find him a home.

Very best wishes!

She has a very bad back and walks him 3 or 4 times a day...the only way she can keep him from pulling her back out when she walks him. He is staying at her mother's house and there is no fenced in yard, so she has to walk him. The pinch doesn't distress him at all. When he walks, he reminds me of a dog that has been tied out a lot.

Adorable dog. Looks like he could be purebred.

I'll put out a couple of feelers with some rescues I know.

Thanks...I'd appreciate that. She and I agree that he would not do good in a shelter.

Hello everyone,

In a previous post, I had written, "what's with the prong collar?"

She has a very bad back and walks him 3 or 4 times a day...the only way she can keep him from pulling her back out when she walks him. He is staying at her mother's house and there is no fenced in yard, so she has to walk him. The pinch doesn't distress him at all. When he walks, he reminds me of a dog that has been tied out a lot.


Thanks for the explanation.

Regards,
nancy
