Mona Gersky took in these two lost brothers.  A very sad story with their owners indeed. 

These two have the sweetest faces!!  Unconditional LOVE!!  I wish I could take them here.  My daughter adopted two black labs from the shelter (brother & sister), as she could not separate them either.  They are just beautiful!!  Full of Love, wonderful with children.  Grandma loves her two grandchildren to pieces.  I hope we can find a great home for these two!!  Thank you Mona for posting!!

You just never know what the day will bring you. This morning Leslie and a couple of our Cannon’s Corner neighbors found two black labs on our deck in Dillsboro. They looked tired but in reasonably good shape. Luckily there was a rabies tag on one so Leslie was able to call the vet’s office and find out who these dogs were. She called the owner several times and got no answer. Since the address was just about 5 minutes away, I drove over hoping that the owner was just out in the yard. 

I got there and there was no sign of the owner. I saw a neighbor and asked if she knew how I could get hold of them. I explained that their dogs were wandering around in Dillsboro. 

That’s when she told me the news.  

These dogs have a very sad story. About a month ago, their owner passed away. She had been living with her son. Her son was discovered dead this morning, the suspicion is an overdose and the dogs now have no humans to care for them. According to the neighbors, the son had not been feeding them very regularly and the brother labs had taken to roaming for food. They have been seen crossing US441 and also Hwy74. It is a miracle that they haven't been killed before now. 

Black Labs need home in Dillsboro NC

Hogan and Riddick are brothers. Their vet is Harriet Shields of Jackson Veterinary Clinic and her office confirms that they are current on their rabies shots and have both been neutered. They are three years old and are labs.

These two boys are inseparable and no other family members want them. They are incredibly sweet and seem very well behaved. Will you help us find either a temporary foster situation or a permanent home for them? Please forward their photos on to everyone in your circle and feel free to call our office if you can help out at all. 

Thanks for your help.

Good luck with this Pam. It's such a sad story. I know that my husband and I say that our Scotty is our last dog. We don't want to leave a homeless pet, and some of the smaller breeds live 18 years!

I wish I was closer so I could help out with being a foster dad until we could find them a permanant home.  Thanks for your efforts to do a good deed to keep these guys together in a new home.

Dear Vickie - Scotties are sweet dogs.  My grandmother had two.  They just are full of love also :)  Thanks well you may change your mind?  :)  Their faces are so precious!  Thanks so much for visiting...may be you will sleep on it? :)

Dear Sebastian - You are so busy.  What wonderful efforts that you put forth & you also volunteer at the shelter & your house is full!  I can tell that you are a kindred heart :)  Thank you  & hopefully Mona will have had some luck.  I wish we could...I am away too much & my daughter actually has 5 animals so is at her limit...besides Venus & Mars, she has a rag doll siamese & two cockatiels... :)  5 animals total.  Thanks so much for visiting :)

Dear Doug - You would make a GREAT Foster Dad :)!!  This was not much & I am going to put my Mom on it as well tomorrow.  She knows people in all the Dog Clubs here...there should be a Lab Rescue place...?  Mona may have even had success by now?  It is late though & I will let you know.  Have a great weekend & thanks for visiting also :)!

Such a sad - sad story. I hope you find a home for the boys or at least have a no kill shelter near by.  Maybe if all else fails how about advertising them on Craigslist.
