Humane Society Labs

Recommended Posts

The news last night told of a Lab breeder whose operation got too big and out of hand. In the last couple of weeks, he has turned over about a hundred Labs to the Hennepin Co. Humane Society in Golden Valley. The film showed Labs of all colors and ages. They didn't look to be abused or starved, and the society is going to need lots of good homes.

If you're interested, their number is 763-489-2201.

I'll save Ken some time by not posting my real thoughts. It is a shame to see all these animals. Expecialy so many Labs. I wonder how many more he still has for sale in the star trib?

That's just sad... Hope they find good homes for these dogs and hope somebody shuts this [PoorWordUsage] down at his puppymill!!! (that probably gets a "poorworduseage" but use your imagination!)

Were all of his puppies AKC registered? I can't imagine going to pick up a puppy and seeing what this guys place looked like.

I think they said they were. The HS will not give you the papers anyways. It does show how much the AKC cares about breeding/breeders.$$$$$

AKC papers don't really mean that much anyway, even if you want to breed. Lots of poor breeding is done with AKC registered dogs. If you are looking for a companion and hunting partner, papers shouldn't matter.

Hey Soldier Girl, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota and thanks for serving our country. I agree about the AKC papers, most dogs can't read them anyway. And I think the Humane Society has a policy that all dogs adopted out have to be spayed or neutered, so breeding isn't a big concern.

There have been comments about the irrespnsible breeder ending up with this many dogs. That's probably true, but right now the concern should be for the dogs and finding them homes. I'm guessing that with that many dogs, they didn't get a lot of indiviual human contact and may need special attention, but on the other hand, they were't physically abused either, so they shouldn't have any problems in that area. When my brother's hunting dog had 10 pups, he hired two little neighbor girls to come over every day for a couple hours and play with the pups. The girls thought they had the best job in the world, getting payed to play with puppies.

CW... you are correct! A crying shame! And more solidifcation to your arguments on how the inherited disorders are so prevelant in Labs... there is way too much of this going around!!!!

If I heard correctly, This isn't the 1st time this guy's been busted for this...

Good Luck!

Ken

Well, I might take a look. My wife is checking about once an hour at work \:\) I guess there will be a lot listed online once they get fixed and vaccinated by a vet.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft
