He loves people and loves his walks and is a great favourite with our dog walkers. Cypher is only a year old so still has lots to learn but is coming on well. His relationship with other dogs has greatly improved since neutering and is getting better every week. Cypher does jump up still and this is something that he needs further work on. He is a tall lad but quite slender. Cypher needs an active home, that has time to give to him and lots and lots of cuddles!.

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.

Skipper

Age: 9 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Loyal & Loving

Lived with children: Older children

Lived with cats: Yes

Good with other dogs: Generally good

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: TBC

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: TBC

General Information:
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.

Health
Good


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

Tino

l

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

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.
