Status Update: Lab Stray

Well, only one more day till the Lab Stray becomes the property of the Westford Dog Warden, but I will wait until Thursday, 2/26 before I take any action. I've already had to bring the little guy to the Vet's Office (Tamarack Vet Hosp/route 128) because of a little "run-in" with one of my dogs. The little guy got himself a nice cut just below his eye, which swelled up a bit. We also discovered he was infested with tapeworm.
Well, he's on his way to being worm free and his swollen eye was looking excellent this morning. I also have him a nice bath using a flea/tick shampoo. Since dogs get tapeworm from fleas,,,,it's logical to assume he had fleas during the warmer months.
On Friday, 2/27, he is scheduled to get neutered, after which he should be ready to go up for adoption. He has responded very well to our walking sessions, and is quite good on the leash as long as a choker is used.

Stray Dog Found on Rt 128 near Cobbs Corner

A young male lab mix has been picked up, and is currently in our shelter. He is on the small side, maybe 45lbs, and was wearing an oversized collar without any tags.
He is a very friendly dog, however he does not appear to be leash or house trained.
If anyone thinks they know who the owners might be, please contact me ASAP!
