I am fostering an 8 year old sweety named Quin. He is an absolute angel with everyone and all dogs. He was a show dog for a number of years and then used as a stud by the breeder. He did have an injury when he was younger and has developed some arthritis on his front leg, we are giving a good quality dog food and glucosamine supplements, he has a good weight and a beautiful coat. He is doing well and needs to find a good home, I already have 2 dogs and an angry wife LOL. I am located in Toronto Canada and would hope that another Canadian will read this and give Quin a chance.

Can I suggest you delete your phone # from your post & keep it to PM's if anyone wants to contact you? I admire your efforts but I'd hate to see you get inundated with crank calls or someone does a reverse search on your # & finds your address.
It's up to you but my phone # isn't something I'd want to advertise on the net.

Has the breeder been notified of this? I would think the breeder would take the dog back and help out. At least I would hope so. Good Luck.

Yes the breeder has been contacted and she said she would take Quin back but I would really like to find a new home for him that would be a little more quiet and peaceful.............she has about 60 dogs.........her hands are pretty full.
thanx for all your concern and feedback!

are you fostering with a rescue? how did you come upon this dog?

Tanya, I took Quinn in from an Kijiji ad in our area (toronto, Ontario) I knew I could not keep him but I had a weird feeling about the situation and convinced my wife to take him . I was correct about the story being "weird" and I think avoided this beautiful dog going to the local pound, the jerk that had him couldn't be a worse lier.
Quinn is doing well, a little stiff in the morning but I hope the Glucoscomine will help and we also have Purica Recovery SA that I have read is quite good. I hope someone will be able to take in Quinn, he has a lot left in him!
Have you tried some local rescues? They can possibly take you under their wing as a foster and help place him, or possibly courtesy post the dog. The benefit of being with a rescue is they can really screen adopters more then just you as an individual via application form and home visits, really ensuring adopters understand the commitment of a dog and the needs of that particular dog.

Yes, I contacted the Labrador Retriever Club Of Canada that does have a rescue section
Quinn is in the center
