I found a dog that i know nothing about, but i'm willing to keep her and make her a part of my family. She's a lab mix that i have named Abby. She has the energy of a puppy, but she will listen to simple comands if you can calm her down. She has a few white hairs under her stomach. She weighs 90 pounds, she has bright white teethand a shiny coat. But her eyes are a little yellow and they sag. Is this common for a lab mix? What are habbits of this breed of dog? Are they out door dogs or indoor dogs? What kind of excercise is reccommeded for this type of dog? She's a quiet, smart dog that is extremely friendly. I'm lost on how to take care of her. If anyone one knows how much to feed her, or how to find out how old she is, or any idea's on training. my budget is tight so i can't afford to take her to a training facility. But i am open to alternatives. Is there anything you think that i'm forgetting to ask?
And for anyone that has ever lost a dog, don't worry i am also posting signs in the area where she found me. Thank you for any advice you can offer!
I am guessing she had no tags. I'd post the pics, ask around, call the police and see if anyone reported a missing dog ( sounds grazy but people do call the police to report their dog missing), If no one response, then I would get her toa vet asap and have her checked out. The vet could give you an idea of how old she is and also help you with what to do for her and what to feed her etc. I understand that your budget is tight so before you decide to keep her remember pets are very expensive, food, vet bills, grooming. They are a lot of fun but they can get to be expensive. Has she been fixed, if not, that is another expense. These are just a few of the expenses. Good luck and post pics when you can, would love to see her.

thank you for the info, whats the spca? i'm on my way out right now to post some flyers. i called the local pound, they told me to bring her in and they would give her the shots she needed. after that they're gonna hold her for 4 days then put her up for adoption. i'm gonna keep her at my house for about a week and see if i can get any calls from the flyers before i bring her to the pound. i would love to show her off but i don't know how to post pic's? any help with that? lol thank you again
