help with dog?

We have not had an outside dog for a long time since we live near a highway. My cousin had a choc lab come to her house and she couldn't keep it as she already had one. We brought it home knowing it was probably under 2 yrs old and had arrived at my cousins after the neighbors had found it at their home but when they left it left also.


It is a very well trained dog and very intelligent but wants to run after anything the makes lots of noise and will jump into almost anything.  He also leaves when no one is outside with him. He is very well mannered most of the time. We have tried a shock collar. We don't have a pen with a fence he can't jump over and hesitate to build one if he will leave.


Any ideas to keep this nice dog here? Will neutering help? Or should we just let him go?
