Trixie and Texas: Black Labs Found at Landfill - Looking for Their Forever Home, As Time is Running Out

In Orangeburg County Animal Control and Shelter in South Carolina, all of the kennels are full. Trixie and Texas were both picked up as strays a few days ago at a local landfill; no one even knows if they are related, but volunteers provide the following heart-wrenching information about these two black Labrador retrievers:

"We don't know if this is even the mama to this little guy. They were both found at the land fill. He cowers behind her...like she is his protector. Both of these are beautiful dogs. She is really friendly. Texas is still a little scared but certainly is handsome."

The kennels at Orangeburg County Animal Control are currently being occupied by dogs involved in court cases; therefore because of lack of space, strays and surrendered dogs are only allowed the minimum time limits before they are euthanized.
