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.

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.

Good


Type of home that would suit: A confident and experienced owner who has time to spend with him as Skipper enjoys company.

Nature: Friendly, playful and loving
Lived with children: Teenagers

Good with other dogs: Yes
> On the lead: Pulls at first but slows down after about 10 minutes! Walked using a harness

Reason for rehoming: Increased working hours

General Information:
Tyler is a small but chunky LabXStaffi. He is described by his family as loving and playful. He enjoys company and is pleased to meet everyone. Tyler is not always confident in some situations and is very sensitive about his neck being touched. We are using a harness when walking Tyler and this works well with him. Tyler is a sweet little guy that really deserves a break! He needs a loving, fairly quiet home, with an owner that will cut him some slack and just let him chill out and settle. He does come with his foibles but then don't we all?

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.
