Benson has not enjoyed the love and comforts of a good home. He was 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 and very affectionate. He loves human company and is a favourite with the dog walkers. Benson is reactive with other dogs and this mainly stems from him being attacked by another dog and is now fearful that this is going to happen again. He has recently been neutered and this will help him. Benson enjoys his walks but is muzzled so he cant get into trouble. Benson is looking for an understanding, patient owner who will give this lovely boy time, love and continue socialising him.

bestfriend


Indie


l

l



























Age: 7 yrs old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X Collie
Nature: Very affectionate and loyal
Lived with children: Not lived with children but always good with children she meets.
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: See below
On the lead: Pulls at first but settles down
Recall: Not bad
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed:Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Not getting on with their other small breed dog

General Information:
Indie is now in a foster home and this is what they say about her:
She walks very nicely on the lead – sometimes a bit quick to start off, but then I normally loop her with the training lead and give her a gentle reminder to slow down and she settles into a nice pace. We usually do about one to one and half hours walk in the morning free running/extendable lead and then maybe a walk into town later – she is very good in shops etc., or a lead walk. This seems to suit her, but she is generally content to doze if there’s nothing particular happening, but she is always up for going out somewhere! I think a crate is a good idea, she is happy in it and often takes herself in it to eat a bone/treat. I think otherwise she would get up to mischief if left longer than a short while on her own, bearing in mind her ability to open doors and get things off the kitchen counter! Actually she only did this a couple of times, but I’m sure she would find something to do if left to her own devices for too long. She definitely has the collie intelligence! As I said, she is easy to handle and check over, loves to be groomed. A good guard dog – loves a little bark at the door- fine with visitors once they have been introduced and given her a treat the first time they come round. She’s a real sweetie.


Health

Type of home that would suit: : A loving family home.

Anne


l

l

l

l

l








Age: 3 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Retriever X
Recall: Not tested
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
All about Anne:
Annie has spent a long time in a Romanian shelter and arrived in a sorry state with matted, muddy fur but her true beauty and lovely nature, is unfolding with each day.
She has only been with us a short time but is an easy dog to care for and with reassurance has developed very good attachment with her main carer. She is still wary of others though, particularly men but with continued gentle handling she is slowly gaining confidence that men are okay too!
She has been toilet trained from day one, with no accidents and happily settles at night in her bed.
Initially apprehensive on a lead, Annie now enjoys her twice daily walks with lead and harness and she is not troubled by passing traffic. She enjoys a slow pace and stops frequently to savour all the smells! There are times when she just stops and sometimes refuses to move! but generally a playful voice gets her back on course or a chicken treat never fails.
She is already responding to simple commands from her main care giver (“come, sit, heel and bed ”) and is very pleased with herself when she gets it right. She is happy to get in a car and travels well.
She appears to have had little experience of play but now will instigate it and it doesn’t take her long to work out how to get the rewards from puzzle toys!
She has not yet had a chance to socialise with other dogs but I believe she has never had any issue and she looks longingly at dogs from a distance.
Understandably she dislikes sudden noise and I would suggest that any future home for Annie should be cat free as there have been several unpredictable incidences of chasing our resident cats which has required logistical planning.
The photos do not do Annie justice. She has a beautiful nature and her anxiety is reducing as she adjusts to life outside of the shelter. She loves having her head and body stroked, being groomed and only needs love, patience and a cat free home to reach her full potential.

Meet Skipper, a lovely friendly boy has come to stay for assessment. He is a lovely boy, with a few quirks but that makes him an individual. As an older dog he is quite low maintenance, happy to be left and will sleep in a crate if need be. He has a few rude manners that we have been working on and he has shown great progress in his time with us. He needs to be an only dog and his social skills with other dogs outside seem fine with us but in the past there has been a few issues. Skipper needs an adult only home and with confident owners, this is just so all rules are kept clear and not confusing. He may be 9 but he still needs his brain and body exercised, so a home that will put the time in to continue his training. He is a small chap, loving chap.

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 not socialised properly and doesn't know how to behave with other dogs. He is also nervous around traffic. At the moment he will need to be walked wearing a soft muzzle for his own and other dogs well being but with time, training, neutering and patience, Tino will improve. He is only just 12 months old and still very much a young pup that needs to be educated. 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.

Meg

l
















Age: 4 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:Yes
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.

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.
