Permanent Foster Home Needed for Chocolate labrador retriever, neutered male, extremely obese at 120#. He is a really sweet, well mannered, quiet fellow who gets along with everyone. He is VERY mobility-challenged, mostly from his weight. In addition, the vet believes he has laryngeal paralysis (lar par) which is a very serious condition that is often lethal quite quickly. It’s possible that the hoarse breathing is due at least partially to his obesity but we can’t be sure until he gets a LOT of weight off. If you are able to work really hard on weight loss (prescription diet, treat control, gentle exercise) and are willing to take on what may be a short stay with you – or maybe a newly healthy dog! – we would really like to hear from you.
