Wanted: Temporary digs for dog

Craigslist we’re not, but every so often we don’t mind passing along requests for help. We got a note from a WSB reader wondering if anyone can take in his son’s dog for the summer. “Lady Bear” (photo below) is a 3-year-old, 90-pound Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler, described by the owner’s dad as “super-friendly, well-trained, loves everybody, loves to run and play, low-maintenance.” His son will be able to take “Lady Bear” back in September, to a new home with a fenced yard, when the new school year starts. He’ll provide food, leash, whatever else is necessary, just wants a “safe home” for his dog. If you are interested in finding out more, call Bob at (206) 484-7201.

    Maybe, maybe. I have three dogs and if you’re in a jam, could probably have him hang out. You can email me from my website.

    Another option is to see if you can work something out with Super Fun Happy Dog. http://www.superfunhappydog.com/ They are super cool and pick up West Seattle dogs every day to hang out in Maple Valley. Our dog Nick really loves it.

    My son’s lease expires tomorrow and is in a *major* jam. Please call him at 206.484.7201. Thank you very much.

    Thanks for the references, but petsitters are way too expensive for my son. Time is up. If anyone can help, now is the time.

    Thanks to the generosity of two of your readers, Bear now has a temporary home until my son moves to Bellingham in September. Thank you WSB!

Sorry, comment time is over.
