I am at my in-laws lakehouse and last night when the DH and I got here there was a beautiful lab waiting outside the door. She has no tags/no collar. It's kind of a rural area so we just went to bed and thought she'd find her way home by morning. She was outside *all night*, by the door. Very sweet, very loving, and obviously nowhere near home. My husband tried to take her up to a development we thought she may have come from, but she followed him back here. We're thinking she was dropped off and abandoned. It breaks my heart. She's been here all day playing with my dogs. We finally fed her and she scarfed it down. I could maybe take her temporarily, but then I'm afraid that she may just be lost and we live an hour away in another city. We're going home today. I'm so upset, she's an amazing dog. Should I start going door-to-door in that development with her, or take her back and try to find her a home in my city, or take her to a shelter (knowing she's a black lab... and a turn-in?)?? I will never EVER be able to see how people can treat animals like disposable objects. Please advise, I'm quite upset and really need the experts right now! ETA: The neighbors say she's been around since Friday and no one knows who's she is. This reaffirms the possibility of her being dumped.
