Nathan

Age: 1 years old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X (small)
Nature: Shy, nervous but no aggression
Lived with children: Suitable with teenagers
Lived with cats: Not known but might be ok
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: At the moment he is a work in progress but with kindness and patience he is gradually getting there.
Recall: Not tested
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Clean in his kennel, so will catch on quickly.
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Unwanted stray

General information This poor little guy was picked up by the dog catchers in Romania, brutally handled, had a tag put through his ear and then thrown into a cage with other big aggressive dogs that terrorised him. We have now taken Nat out of this 'Hell Hole' and brought him over to find a forever loving home here. Nathan is a real sweetheart and since being with us has become a much happier little lad. He greets all the girls with a happy waggy tail but is still a little nervous of men - this will take time. He is learning to walk on the lead and go for small walks. His confidence will take time to grow but he is on the road to recovery and would benefit from a home that will show him kindness and patience. He would make a perfect friend for an older gentle dog that could learn from.

Health Good

Age: 4 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Friendly

Lived with children: Teenagers

Lived with cats: Not known

Good with other dogs: Has been in foster with three bitches and enjoyed their company.

On the lead: Pulls at first but then settles down

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General information Marley is a friendly, affectionate boy and a firm favourite with our dog walkers. He pulls at the begining of his walk but soon settles down and walks well. He does jump up when greeting you and this is something that needs correcting. We think that Marley has come from a rural home as he is unsure around cars but given reassurance he responds well. He is a lovely boy and deserves a lovely home.

Health Good

Type of home that would suit: An experienced owner with patience and who is happy to allow Marley to adjust to a new environment and to complete his training.

A Home is Urgently Needed for Kara & Tyni


kt

kt

kt



Age: 10 years old

Gender: Brother and sister

Lab or Lab X: Labs

Nature: Friendly, loving dogs

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Pull but good off the lead when at the park

Recall: Very good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Had first vaccination second one due in 2 weeks

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General information Kara & Tyni are two lovely family dogs that had trauma at the start of their lives and are frightened of anyone shouting, so a nice relaxed home with a retired couple or person would be ideal. They are great with the grandchildren and good with all other dogs when out at the park. Tyni is a bit overweight and is on diet but both dogs are happy and fairly healthy for their age.

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

Dylan is a big boy and loves to have a cuddle and try and sit on your lap. He has such a loving nature and will make a loyal companion. He loves other dogs and loves running around the park. He does pull on the lead a little but a bit of training will sort that out. He loves long walks and loves the water. He is a great swimmer and loves our local lake. He is great with children and has lived with kids and 3 cats. He is a wonderful dog and whoever is lucky enough to adopt him will receive so much enjoyment with this lovable cuddly character.
Daisy was a rescue puppy - When she was very young, children had cut her tail with scissors but even after such cruel treatment, Daisy is a very sweet and loving dog. She enjoys company and a cuddle with her owners or a dog friend or the cat. Everyone is Daisy’s friend. As a youngster Daisy needs to continue with her training but has made a great start so far.

Merlin

Merlin is currently in his original home but due to a change in circumstances a new home is needed for him and we have been asked if we could help.
This is what his present owner says about him:

Unfortunately due to a change in my circumstances I am having to look for a new home for our beloved dog Merlin. He's about 4 and is a black lab x. (He's about the size of an average Lab) He's absolutely lovely and is a very affectionate dog...

There are a couple of things that I have to be upfront about in that he is a rescue and has a couple of minor behavioural niggles that he comes with. The main one being that he will bark if on a lead and sees another dog which I think could be easily overcome with the right person. He also (after years of training) still pulls on the lead if not handled correctly. For this reason I think he would definitely be best going to a home who have had previous experience with larger dogs. He will also chase livestock given half the chance which I don't think is unusual but for some reason he sees horses as large puppies... They often don't appreciate this! It's important to point out that he has never been aggressive to any other dogs or people and loves being around other dogs as he is very sociable.

He's been around children of all ages and is extremely well behaved in the house and is more than happy to be left for a few hours without any problems at all. He’s a similar age to my parents dog and has been left with him and they both just sleep during the day. He doesn’t and never has really barked. If people come to the front door he’s disinterested and isn’t affected by fireworks. The only time I’ve known him to bark is play with another dog or if he sees a dog and he’s on the short lead.

The next catch and probably the biggest is that Merlin developed a rare condition called Addison's disease last year and is now on lifelong medication. Provided he has his tablets he will lead a full and normal life as has been the case since we had him diagnosed some 9 months ago. There is obviously a cost associated with this which will put some people off but it is about £35 a month so could be worse. - I am currently looking at a way of reducing this with our vet and am hoping it will come down...

Despite his 'baggage' he is one of the most loving, affectionate dogs I've experienced and has character in abundance. He always greets you in the mornings like a long lost friend and likewise when you return at the end of the day. He’ll come and sit by you and if invited come up on the sofa for a cuddle. He doesn’t require excessive walks but is happy with a 45minute walk in the morning and then a whizz round the block before bed. He absolutely loves being around people and dogs and makes great company at home. One other thing I should point out is that he travels perfectly in the car in his harness with a seatbelt or on his bed - he’s not phased by this at all.

We are looking for the right home for him where he can settle into a routine and will like most dogs give back two fold what someone is prepared to put in.


If you feel you are able to give Merlin a home, then please contact us for an application form.

bruno

bruno









Age: 6 yrs
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Loving and loyal.
Lived with children: Yes but we feel older would be better.
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Good with a halti
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Bruno has seperation anxiety and his owner couldn't cope.
He is now in a foster home and is making progress. This will get better in time but will need patience and understanding.
This is what his foster home have said about this: "He is anxious when on his own and will cry or bark if one of us leaves the house and will look around to try and find us".


Good points: He has a very relaxed, affectionate and loving nature, has a permanent waggy tail and loves kisses. He is very attentive and loves company. He is very obedient and knows sit, stay, wait and down. He likes to settle down after his dinner in the evening and is quiet and will happily sleep for 12 hours at night. Bruno looks forward to his walks and after 5 minutes ball throwing will happily walk by your side. He has been very good with all the dogs he has met when out even the chocolate Labradors that we were told he didn’t get on with. He travels well in the car and loves roaming around the garden.

Work needed:
Bruno definitely benefits from having a regular routine and work will be needed with his separation anxiety. He likes everyone to be together so that he can see them and will try and encourage that. He will bark if someone comes in the door and will need a secure environment when left as can open unlocked doors and let himself out to look for his humans.
Health
Good

Additional information: His foster family said ”That despite a few problems, which are understandable given his experiences Bruno is loving, well behaved, playful and a handsome boy".
Type of home that would suit: A home with someone at home most of the time with the Patience and commitment to help him through his anxiety.

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.
