Subject: Help Finding a Home for 2 Labs
Apologies for this long email, but I am hoping you might be able to help
out by posting this to the Henderson Road website as well as blasting it
out to folks you know might be able to help out:
We are fostering 2 Labrador Retrievers, a male and a female. A friend of
mine runs a Lab Rescue organization called Atlanta Dog Squad. I got a
message from her a couple weeks back about two 5 year old black labs
that just melted my heart, and we jumped in to help.
These two lovable dogs lived with a single mom and her teenage son out
in Douglasville. The Mother tragically suffered a major heart attack and
passed away. A neighbor has agreed to foster the boy, but because of
space, etc, was unable to take in the dogs. Rather than take them to the
Humane Society or a shelter, this woman had the compassion to contact
the rescue organization.
We took them in, and considered adopting them ourselves, since our own
Lab passed away back in April. But after a week, we realized these two
"kids" need the activity and love a larger family can give them. The sad
reality is that due to work, we are gone for 10+ hours per day during
the week, and there is no way to appropriately fence in our yard to give
them the space they need to run, play, wrestle, etc, while also
protecting their safety.
They truly are beautiful, loving and friendly dogs. Seeing the way they
interact with our friends' and neighbors' children, we realize the best
place for them would be with a family with kids, or at least in a home
where someone is home most of the time.
They are very well behaved, house trained and full of love. They are
half siblings, same father, different mother, born 5 days apart. They
have been together all their lives and must stay together.
They have been through so much transition recently, we are trying to
find a permanent home for them as soon as possible, where they can
settle in and regain a sense of permanence.

Anyone interested can email me with "Dogs" in the subject line. I have
promised the Atlanta Dog Squad they can interview / approve any
potential adopters... they have stringent guidelines to make sure the
pets are placed in the best homes possible.
