Silas was found by a concerned citizen after being placed in his kennel on the side of the freeway in the Woodville, Wisconsin area - his kennel was found in a ravine. When the woman came upon him he was out of his kennel running into traffic so she did the only thing she could think of and grabbed him and called us here at GGOH. His ear was torn and bleeding, presumably from breaking out of his kennel. His kennel had been broken on one side and had been taped together with electrical tape making it possible to break open with little force, which Silas had done to escape it's contents. Silas had been left in this kennel with dirty blankets and an old garbage bag filled with rotting garbage - to put it mildly, the kennel was filthy! Can you imagine; this is how someone left their family pet. Breaks our heart! Silas is a great black lab with a big heart. He wants nothing but to be loved and have some guidance from a faithful new friend. He needs a guardian who will be committed to continuing with his training; someone who will stand firm and let Silas know who is in charge. He is a good dog, but needs to know what his boundaries are. Silas is approx. 3 - 4 years old (as of Jan. 2016); up-to-date on vaccines and is neutered. He's doing well with his training and is sure to make a wonderful pet given the chance. Someone out there discarded this poor boy with their trash - such a shame. Let's find Silas a new loving home where he will know love like no other - he deserves it! GGOH does have fencing and indoor living policies as well as a current adoption radius limitation of 100 miles from our facility. Please see our website @ www.ggohinc.com for more details. Thank you for considering one of our rescues!!
