Meg


l

l

l





























Age: 3 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Lab x mastiff
Nature: Loyal
Lived with children: See below
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: See below
On the lead: Good
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: No
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Meg is looking for a more rural home

General Information:
Good points:
She is a beautiful dog, with a Labrador head and facial features with more of a Mastiff chest and back legs. She has a powerful waggy tail and uses it to demonstrate her appreciation of you and what you are doing. She is a loving dog, looking for tummy tickles whenever there is half a chance. She will give a paw when asked. After walks she is also very patient if her paws need wiping off.
She will take food treats from your hand very gently. Meg loves human food, including raw carrots and apples, so there are never any left-overs in the house. She will sit with the family at dinner-time, patiently waiting for her turn but does not beg for the food.
Meg loves to exercise, sniff and investigate the outside world but has found dealing with other dogs, a challenge, particularly smaller dogs, due to her lack of socialisation, she appears not to know how to play.
She sleeps in a crate/cage. From the first night she stayed with us, she slept through the night without crying.
Work needed:
Meg will benefit from living in a quiet home, with owners who have the time to take her to socialising classes and work with her.
Although she has behaved well with the children who are part of the family, she has reacted badly in a situation with a child unknown to her, outside of the home, when they attempted to fuss her.
She currently exercises outside with a muzzle.

Health
She is a healthy, having recently had a check at the vets. Her coat, Labrador in texture, shines with health and is a lovely dark chocolate colour.


Type of home that would suit: : An adult only home that are prepared to work with her.
Meg is a fantastic, energetic dog and would be an asset to a family owning a farm or a more remote property.

Bailey


l

l

l






















Age: 11 months
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador x Schnauzer (Large dog)
Nature: Energetic and boisterous
Lived with children: No
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes but very playful
On the lead: Good
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Change to family circumstance

General Information:
A lively and energetic young boy, who loves company. As a young dog Bailey will need to continue with his training. He can be a little stubborn unless you have a treat! Bailey is currently in a foster home and this is what they have to say about him:
Bailey is well and is now well settled. We feed the dogs together, he sits and waits for his food until he is told he can have it and he and Teddy shared licking out the turkey roasting pan on Christmas Day good naturedly. He no longer barks at night but would still steal from the worktop given half a chance and so they need to be kept clear of food and we have to remain vigilant! He did manage to lick out the last remains of butter from a dish we left on the top but apart from that nothing untoward except 15 pieces of jigsaw puzzle (goodness only knows why he found them appetising!)...Bailey is an intelligent dog who loves human company, likes to be kept active and learns quickly. He is strong-willed and he can be obstinate though! His new owner(s) will have to establish themselves as the alpha or he will be very demanding. But he is highly trainable, especially by rewarding him with treats as he is very food orientated! He just needs to be kept in his place and stimulated. He is very watchful and aware of everything that is going on around him and likes to be physically close. He would follow you everywhere given half a chance. He barks on separation and this would need to be worked on so that he grows in confidence and begins to understand that he can cope on his own. He is energetic and very intelligent. Playing a variety of games and vigorous exercise will let him vent his energy and keep his mind busy. He needs a confident owner who will take charge and show that he/she means what they say but will reward such a person with loads of fun and devotion.


Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: : An active home with lots of time to spend with Bailey.

Age: 2yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X Boxer

Nature: Friendly, loving and eager to please

Lived with children: Yes, older children

Lived with cats: No

On the lead: Pulls at first but settles down

Recall: Not tested

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: No time for him

Benson has not enjoyed the love and comforts of a good home. He has been sleeping in a cold shed, on a wooden pallet with a bit of carpet thrown on it. Ignored and left on his own most of the day and night. Benson is now with us and he is such a sweet boy, eager to please, ok with other dogs and enjoys human company and cuddles. His house skills may need brushing up initially but he is a smart lad and will catch on quickly. Benson is looking for a family that will give him lots of love and attention and make him part of the family.

Mia

l
l
l
l
l


Age: 5yrs old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: LabradorX

Nature: Affectionate and loves to play

Lived with children: Suitable with older children 10+

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: She was good with the dog she previously lived with and providing unfamiliar dogs don't crowd her space, she is fine.

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Selective

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Owners could not cope with her

General Information:
Mia is loving and affectionate to everyone. She has a fear of cars and will try to attack them if they come too close to her. We felt initally that a country life might suit her but this is her assessment from her current foster home:
"After trying both town and country living I recommend you change your criteria for Mia. She is better in town, provided her new owner has access to a park where she can run. The main problem with country is her aggressive/defensive behaviour with cars, and also recall issues around livestock. She is better with cars in town as they dont go so close to her, and she feels less threatened. Recall is improving, but I would rather have her off the lead in a park than a field. We have a fenced square at the end on our road and she loves it. She is pretty good with other dogs provided they have open space; on a lead or with fences there is a lot of shouting. She is a great house dog. She has clearly been in houses where sofas are fair game, but learns very fast when new rules are applied. And she is very fond of company, and has been taught a few tricks. The best one is sitting on her hind legs, bear like.. She also tries to climb trees after squirrels... She is fit and well, and we will be sad to lose her".


Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: : A home that will give Mia lots of exercise and be happy to work around her querks.

On the lead: Pulls, needs work

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: May need brushing up

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances and no time for him

General Information:
Cypher is a happy, friendly boy. He is quite a leggy lad and full of energy. He will need continuation with his training and he does jump up quite a bot, so this is probably the first thing that needs to be trained out of him. Cypher had a sore knee when he came into rescue but with rest this has improved greatly and he is back to his happy, bouncy self once again. Cypher is a lovely boy and needs an owner that has the time and commitment to put in the training that he needs.

Jumping in and out of the back of a car at the moment is still painful for Dolly but she is happy to get in a side door and travel on a back seat. She enjoys her walks and plays well with other dogs. She is currently in a foster home with several other small breed dogs and is doing well.

He must continue to have small lead walks and no boisterous play. Since he developed his spinal problem Brody has developed seperation anxiety so he would suit a retired couple that could give him company and gentle exercise.

Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Pulls
Recall: N/k
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Unclaimed stray

General Information:
Benson is currently in a foster home and has written his own list of requirements (clever dog!)
Things I would like in my forever home.
Someone who will scratch my belly on demand.
Someone who doesn't mind having their feet licked.
A family who will include me in their activities. I don't care what you are doing as long as I can see you.
Tennis balls. They won't last long so stock up.
A squeaky toy. Honestly, you will get use to the noise.
Someone who will give me more training. I'm ok on the lead, I get a bit excited sometimes when I smell a new smell but once I know who is boss I will be grand.
I now know 'sit' so I'm a fast learner. I'm sure I could learn other tricks if the price was right. And the price is dog biscuits.
I'm incredibly well behaved when left alone for a few hours, but I do need a good walk every day. Think of how fit you will be walking me!
Regards, Benson.
We feel Benson would benfit from being and only dog and would be good with older children 10+

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Selective

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Not enough time for him

General Information:
Tino is a small black Lab who loves company and cuddles. He is friendly with all humans and is still very much a pup. His training needs to be continued but Tino will do most things for a treat or a game of tug with a toy, so not too hard to train this boy! He is house and crate trained. He was previously living with a Labrador bitch and was good with her but he doesnt know how to react with other dogs. Tino will need to be lead walked at the moment and only let off lead when he has become more sociable. He is only just 12 months old and still very much a young pup that needs to be educated and will, with time, love and commitment develop social skills. He will need someone at home during the day that can give him the time, love, attention and commitmentthat he needs and deserves. Tino is just a lovely little guy that has not has the best start.

Type of home that would suit: She needs a kind and patient home, that are prepared to complete her training and give her lots of love and time.









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.
