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.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
