    I absolutely love rescues, and volunteer for one every week here in Austin (we're a no kill city, it's amazing!), but I tried to rescue before I got Bubba and had a very difficult time which led me...

    When I did rescue for Labs we were more likely to adopt with people without fences vs. with a short fence. We had so many issues with people leaving their Labs outside unattended either thinking...

    I don't think you will find a definitive answer if everyone who has ever worked with or adopted from a rescue group responds. Every group has different criteria and it may not been the same for all...

    My neighbor had a real problem with getting a dog, the rescues were being super nosy and he's ex-military and refused to explain all the useless crap they were asking about. You would think rescues...

    All my dogs have had the green beans mixed in because I like to keep them lean (and I agree that in that picture your boy, while not obese, could stand to be leaner). My first girl hated whole...

    I don't think he looks fat, but for a dog with elbow issues, I'd want to see him leaner. Try green beans from the can (no salt). Steamed baby carrots might work, but they have a lot of sugar, so try...

    Excellent post! Healthy Labs surely love to eat, so it can be hard at times to cut their food back when they are looking for more.

    I'd up his exercise gradually and with some diet modification he should lose the pounds in no time. Any place you could take him swimming? It's a great exercise and it doesn't stress the joints. So...
