Labrador Mix Duo Needs Home Together

It is a sad fact of life that many of the overwhelming problems that pet owners encounter have a domino effect that is left behind for others to solve.

When a man in Georgia found that life was too much to handle, he committed suicide. He left behind his 5 beloved dogs for others to be concerned about. Local authorities in the area brought the dogs to the Newnan Coweta Humane Society where released dogs is somewhat overwhelming. The group called the John Bergmann, General Manager of the Society's Forked River facility. They were brought to a local veterinarian where they found to be heartworm positive, had internal parasites and needed altering.

Roger is above right, and Sweetie, below.

Arrangements were made to have three of the dogs transported to the Society. The other two remained in Georgia where the Humane Society staff felt they could adopt them.

Sweetie is thought to be about 8 years old, a Lab Retriever mix of 60 pounds and believed to be the mother or companion of Roger, a younger male Lab mix who was already neutered. All of their medical needs will be taken care of by the Society, thanks to continued donations to the Res-Q Fund.

When they arrived at the Forked River facility, they stayed in the spacious barn with John in the comfort of his closeness and oversight. They were weak, frightened and it has taken some time to bring them out of their shell.

Their traumatic past has made them a source of comfort for each other. It is nearing the holiday season and we are hoping to find a heart and home for this Labrador mix duo. File L-19969-SF (Sweetie) and File L-19970-NM (Roger) - Forked River. Contact us or call 609-693-1900 if interested in adopting.
