Mia

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.

General Information:
Anne was found with a rope collar that was so tight it had embedded itself into her neck. This poor girl had suffered this for a long while but since her surgery she is now enjoying a pain free life. We would like to find Anne a special home with someone who will continue to make life good for her and show her love and patience while she adjusts. She enjoys her walks and is an energetic girl that loves to run around the garden and play. She is a little nervous of men but just needs a little coaxing. She loves a cuddle and will lean against you and then roll over for a tummy rub.

Cypher

Age: Approx 10/12 months old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Energetic and friendly

Lived with children: Teenagers

Lived with cats: N/K

Good with other dogs: Not always good with other dogs. Needs more socialising but with positive, firm handling he responds well.

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.

Tino

l

l





Age: 1 year old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Friendly and lively

Lived with children: Yes 10yrs and over

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Not at the moment, needs to be an only dog and to be socialised

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Selective

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed:No

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Not enough time for him

General Information:
Tino is a small/medium size black Lab who loves company and cuddles and is a little bundle of energy. 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 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

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.

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.
