    Oh Crap...

    Sadly I believe it was abandoned in the playground on purpose so a mother w/child would take it in.

    You want to take puppy to a shelter to see if its microchipped.

    Otherwise, you have a cute new member of the family

    Poor little guy... guess he was crying because he was super hungry?

    Guess you could look around the area in day or two for signs saying 'lost dog' with his pic on it... but somehow I doubt this was accidental.

    Is he a choc lab? Looks like it.

    I never heard a puppy make that sound.

    I would have taken it in in a nonosecond.

    Those collars? What's the story?

    This is how we got our current dog, someone abandoned her at a playground.

    She turned out to be the Best Dog in the Universe.

    Good on you for picking it up. You have shown it the welcome mat and fed it. It owns you now! I believe that dog is going to bring you good karma. Something about puppies that touches good people right on the humanity bone, shame the turds that abandoned it weren't good people. Given it a name yet?

    Thank you for saving this puppy and no, I would not try to find it's owners. It was obviously abandoned.

    LOL...I watched the vid for like 5 secs and my two Goldens both popped up their heads. WTF?

    If you truly can't take him in find a Lab rescue local. Much better IMO than the Humane Society or what not. That's how we got our Goldens!

    Congrats and thanks for picking up the baby! That's how I got these two. They were dodging cars on a state highway when they were about 6-weeks old. Don't try to find the owner. Anybody that lets any dog, but especially a puppy, run loose anywhere except for it's own yard, doesn't need to own a dog. Mine are in a fenced yard but do get to go on long runs on the farm, but only when supervised by me.

    ... the sound freaked me out as well... I wasn't sure of what I was looking for... and when I heard it coming from head height, I was certain it was gonna be something like a stuck squirrel or bird...

    Actually, the animal came with both collars (I have only seen one flea and have dipped her once already... still working on getting to the vet cuz I can't imagine her not having worms). She looks to be in good health, and in the few days I've had her, has responded "normally" in every respect (playful, biteful, peeful, hungry, repeat).

    I'm weakening boys and girls... I've named her... KAGE (google a translation from Japanese) Sho...

    Indeed, this has been my history for most of the dogs I've had. My current dog is the only surviving (known) pup from a stray I found wandering in the middle of a 6 lane freeway back in 1993.

    If I keep her, she just might be the last dog I'll ever have given MY age...

    Poor baby. She's scared sh*tless. Good on you for taking her in.
    Chocolate labs can be a handful, but once you train them, they make wonderful partners.

    Any update? How's she doing? How are you doing?

    Puppies = high maintenance, high reward

    ... an endless bladder and a failure to comply.

    Last night, we did fairly well, then, I was 15 nanoseconds too slow after she woke up.

    ... not working...

    I've tried crate and short lead to little/no avail (so far). If she's with me during the day, I can generally tell, but not always. Best I can do at the moment is monitor and MOVE.

    Dunno if I'm trying to undo bad habits or she just hasn't caught on (remembering that she's on the youngish side). Course, since this came out of the blue, it's an adjustment for me too (working at the computer, I failed to look down to see her squat right at my feet before then wanting in my lap).

    she doesn't look old enough to have habits, lol. My yellow dog was the puppy from hell. We got through that and she is 10 1/2 now and the best dog I have ever had. It takes time and infinite patience.

    Congrats! I can't bear to click on the video. Sometimes I really hate people- who are the a$$ho1es that can DO these things?!

    Then the people like you show up and balance out humanity.

    She looks waaaay too young to be potty-trained, that'll take some time. Crate will help later. Expect a good amount of cleaning for a little bit. But it's rewarding when you see it start to click and she shows you she has a brain.

    ... the good, the bad, the ugly...

    ... the good, she has been really good inside for the past 4 days. She had one small accident which I caught midstream (following ASPCA's guidelines).

    ... the bad, since crating didn't really work (or an extremely short lead), I've taken to letting her sleep with me (with a short lead tied to me so I can feel her if she moves). So far, I've been able to intercept ALL incidents (she has yet to whimper, but instead, tries to get away from me, which is my cue).

    ... the ugly, NO SLEEP FOR ME. This method requires constant monitoring during waking hours (same behavior applies when she's in the house... if she moves away from her toys and blanket... time to go out) as well as being up about every 2 to 4 through the evening and night.

    She is currently crated in the garage while I'm away from home so we'll see how she does. Now, excuse me while I get some sleep.

    Have you tried pee pads? I think some of them have a scent that tells the puppy "Pee Here!"
