    DefaultParker Needs a New Home

    Hello all, It breaks my heart to say that the lab I "adopted" from my daughter is not going to work out for us. He is adorable and sweet, but my allergies and asthma have been acting up terribly since he came and I went to the doctor today who told me that Parker has to go or it's going to be much worse. I need to find him a good loving home with someone who will love and take care of him. Don't know whether I'm in the right topic here but thought I'd try here first. He is five months old, weighs 42 pounds. Has all shots has been wormed and has had his hips checked. I was going to take him to training class but it's too late now. Can anyone please help? I'm in Cincinnati Thanks.

    did your daughter get him from a breeder? A responsible breeder will take him back...

    otherwise, these guys might be able to help

    My son has had allergies and terrible asthma since he was an infant. We had 3 cats and several dogs. Allergy shots did the trick.He is not grown and has 2 cats an 2 dogs.

    Forget the doc....go to an allergy specialist! They can whip you up a special serum and have things under control within a month or so.
    Dont give up yet! 5 months is a tough age to re-home the pup now. Especially, with the flood of failed christmas pups on the market.
    I would try everything possible to avoid placing him, if you can.

    I am sorry you are going through this. I can understand the animal allergy. I was complaining to a friend about mine yesterday. She told me her sisters child was allergic to animals. Her doctor told her to get a cat and a dog and it would help. It took 6 weeks of hell and no more allergies.

    This sounds weird so not really sure it works and you have probably had him more than 6 weeks.

    Good luck with what ever you decide.

    If you really love Parker and allergies are what is stopping you from keeping him, please do consider seeing an allergist.

    I'm confused as to why he is bothering you and not your other 2 dogs. If you have become immune to them, I would think the same could happen with Parker.

    i'm no allergy specialist but yea I would think that toughing it out, and the body will adapt to those allergens if constantly exposed to them. I would think doing it without shots that mess up the bodies natural adaptation mechanism would be better too. may suck for awhile, but would be interesting to test.

    human body is very adaptable.

    How's that for some unscientific internet forum medical advice. ;D

    Thank you all for your help. I really don't want to take shots for my allergies, and I have other health problems too. Like I said I took this dog from my daughter because he was hard on my young grandsons, but I really need to find him a good nice home. I don't want to advertise him the paper because God knows who would get him. I know you all adore your labs and I hope you don't think badly of me because I need to re-home Parker. Anyone who could help find him a good new home would really be appreciated. I am contacting Rescue Lab in Cincinnati to see if they can help me and I am going to try to get back with the breeder. Thanks.
