Diesel




diesel

diesel

diesel

diesel




Age: Approx 3 yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Diesel is a loving friendly boy.

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: Not known

Good with other dogs: Yes, good with other dogs.

On the lead: Will need a bit of work.

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: yes

Housetrained: Will need to be shown the ropes but will soon catch on.

Neutered/Spayed:Yes

Vaccinated: Yes and chipped

Reason for rehoming: Unclaimed stray

General information :
Diesel has arrived from Romania and is looking for a forever home. He was in a kennel in Romania for quite a while, passed by and unwanted because he is a black dog. Unfortunately in a lot of foreign countries black dogs and cats are not popular and will be the last to be rehomed or often put to sleep as nobody wants them. Diesel survived distemper but has been left with a tremor in one of his front legs but this does not affect his mobility and he enjoys a run or walk just like any other dog. Prior to travelling to England he was placed in a foster home with a family with children. We were told that he has a lovely nature and like most Labrador enjoys human company and lots of cuddles. We have put Diesel as a Lab X but from his photos he does look like a pure Lab. Diesel has been neutered, had all his jabs and was vet checked again before travelling to ensure he was in good health. Patience and time will be needed by whoever adopts Diesel to allow him to adjust and learn his new routine but this beautiful dog will be worth the effort.

Maggie


maggie

maggie

maggie



Age: 8 years

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Good natured but a little boisterous. This is most likely due to lack of exercise.

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: No and is not suitable for a home with cats.

Good with other dogs: No - where Maggie has not been walked enough or socialised with dogs for a while, she does tend to lunge and bark at other dogs.

Recall: Not great. Will come back but in her own time.

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Owner has two young children and works part-time so is unable to give Maggie the attention she needs

Good points:
Maggie is a good natured dog who is used to being left on her own for a few hours a day. Maggie is not destructive.

Work needed:
Maggie will need some work on her recall if her new home wish to walk her off lead. Maggie will also need some work on behaviour towards other dogs.


Additional information:
Maggie has started to misbehave a little indoors but this is most likely due to her being bored through lack of exercise.


Health: In good health.

Type of home that would suit:
Maggie would be suited to a home with a new family who are willing to give Maggie the love and attention she needs, as well as exercise Maggie regularly. Maggie would need to be rehomed as an only dog.

Todd


todd


todd


todd











Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Dog
Lab or Lab X: Labrador
Nature: Nervous by nature and afraid of sudden movements, however this seems to be slightly improving. Todd is extremely wary of strangers entering the house, so this must be handled carefully untill Todd is comfortable with the new arrival.
Lived with children: Yes
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Todd does have a tendency to snap at other dogs, however on most occasions he is fine with them. This is improving all the time.
On the lead: Todd is currently attending classes to help with his scoialing with both dogs and humans and is making progress but this will need to be continued by any new owners.
Recall: Average recall, unless distracted.
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Todd's owner didn't feel equipped to deal with the issues that Todd has.

Good points:
Food orientated which makes training much easier to do. Todd loves to play fetch with a ball and will retrieve the ball also. Todd will wait patiently until he is told he can eat his food and you can also take Todd's food away from him with no issues. Todd responds to the word 'mine' when being asked to drop a toy or a ball.

Work needed:
Todd has many issues that will need to be worked on daily. Has become protective when out on the lead. Socialising needs to be continued. Sometimes comes across as aggressive with other dogs when on the lead but he is ok if other dog owners give you the opportunity to let him say hello.


Additional information:
Todd has been attending socialisation classes whilst he has been staying at kennels, and he is making tremendous improvement each time. Type of home that would suit: Todd will need to go to a home who has experience in working with dogs who have behavioural issues. The new home would also need to be willing to take Todd to a socialisation class where he can learn how to be around other dogs and people. Any potential new home would be best to discuss all of Todd's issues with the area coordinator first, prior to committing to rehoming him and we will continue to give advice and support once he is rehomed.

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.
