General Information:
Goldie is a brilliant dog in the house. He is loving, affectionate and enjoys the company of all adults and children. Unfortunately he has not been socialised with other dogs and becomes excitable when he sees them, so this will need some work and neutering will also help.

General Information:

He can be possessive with both toys and food so is not a suitable dog to be with a young child. Dexter is good in the house and is ok to be left for 3-4 hrs. He is nervous around large dogs, especially GSD's and will growl.

Health
Good

Age: 17 months old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: LabradorX

Nature: Loving and protective

Lived with children: Yes older

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Needs work

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: No

Lola is a little shy at first but soon warms to you (especially with a treat!). She is quite a chunky girl and pulls a bit on the lead at first but does settle down and walks fairly well on a harness. Lola is a lovely dog and loves human company. As a young dog Lola will need to continue with her training and socialising as she can be cautious of strangers in the home.

Health
Good




Type of home that would suit: : A home that has the time to spend with this lovely girl.

Max


max

max

max

max



Age: 6 yrs

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Max is independent and comfortable in his own company, he will happily interact with people once a toy is introduced and is very trainable due to his interest in food.

Lived with children: No

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Max chooses to ignore other dogs and will do so if they leave him alone. If they are bouncy or aggressive towards him he will warn them with low growling and raised fur but has stopped when we have told him to and is easily distracted with a ball.

On the lead: Good

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: tbc

Reason for rehoming: Bed guarding

Good points: Max loves playing ball and will return and drop it so the game goes on.

Work needed:
Max will need on-going training with regards to his sleeping arrangements. He can wake up startled and it maybe that he reacts to smell more than sight. So even someone he knows may get a low growl and then he realises who it is he is fine. A comfy training crate turned into a den is needed where he can have his own personal space.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: Max would be ideal with a single person, he seems happier around men than women but that could all depend on the individual

Age: 4 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Very friendly, loves a cuddle

Lived with children: Teenagers

Lived with cats: Not known

Good with other dogs: Yes. Has been in foster with three bitches and enjoyed their company and is always good with other dogs when out walking.

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General information Marley is still waiting for an offer of a forever home and we can't understand why he hasn't been snapped up! Marley is a very friendly, affectionate boy and a firm favourite with our dog walkers. A bit of excitement at the beginning of his walk (all very normal) but soon settles down and walks well and is very easily managed/kept in line using treats. A typical Lab - will do anything for a treat!!! He does jump up sometimes when excited or greeting you and this is something that we have been working on and great progress has already been made. You can see by these photos that he is an intelligent boy that listens to commands and is easily trained. He is a lovely boy and deserves a loving, forever home with a family that will love and cherish him.

Health Good

Type of home that would suit: An active family that are happy to complete his training.

Note to adopters:

Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto don't show up in rescue. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely well trained, perfect dog. Many never had good veterinary care, kind or consistent training, or sufficient company. Some have lived outside, or left alone for many hours every day. When rehomed they're scared or depressed and anxious and will act out of character but time, patience and love will solve this. When you take on a rescue dog you need to be 100% committed to making it work, “ride the storm” but don't ever give up. We at rescue never give up on a dog. We know that a dog is a living being, with a spirit and a heart and feelings. Our dogs are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of life’s sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as Lassie, Rin Tin Tin or Toto. So please, please don't come to rescue in the hopes of getting a "bargain," or "a fully trained dog”. Come to Rescue to give, to love, to save a life -- and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this -- a rescue dog will make you a better person.
