We need to get rid of our Yellow Lab. He's got papers, still intact, etc. About 2.5 years old.

We took him in from a neighbor that had trouble keeping him in the yard. He's an escape artist. He stayed in our yard for a while, but has gotten to where he's always trying to bust out, and usually does. He's a good dog, leash trained, etc, but we just don't have the time to chase him down on a near daily basis. My wife stays home with the kids (3 of them under 10) and it's just too much for her.

Let me know if you're interested. We are in Liberty Hill, NW of Austin about 30 miles, between Burnet and Georgetown on HWY 29.

Get him neutered and he will likely roam less.

We had to put up an electric fence for our escaping male. 2 attempts and he was cured.
Don't be overly sensitive!!!

There is a reason he is escaping and it is not to smell the flowers. Get him snipped and he will more than likely stay home.

Good looking dog. If I had room for him, I'd take him.

Not so sure about the neuter thing, had my setter snipped and if you leave the front door open too long he's out and running the hood
Beautiful pooch
There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

I'd try the E-fence first before giving him up, if he were mine.

Shock collars work wonders.
