Lab Mix in Need
This came thru on Equine-L this morning. I am in Illinois and know nothing of this dog, but the poster is a longtime poster on Equine-L. It looks like she forwarded it to the equine list. Sounds like he is in NC but can get a ride to NJ. Or maybe someone knows of a shelter that will take him.

>really likes him and is desperately trying to find him a home. You

>Please, guys, put your feelers out. This one is a really sweet,
