poppy




Age: 6 yrs old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Nervous at first but good natured and very sweet.
Lived with children: Yes but not very young children
Lived with cats: Yes very good with cats
Good with other dogs: Yes very good
On the lead: Not too bad
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Owner is elderly and Poppy is not getting the attention or walks she needs.

Poppy's sad story:
Can I tell you my story? My name is Poppy and I am 6yrs old. I watched all of my brothers and sisters bar one, die from parvo when I was little. It was my worst Christmas ever and took two weeks.......ooh I was so scared. Then when I was a bit bigger I went in my garden and screamed in pain........thankfully my foster Mum knew what had happened and she rushed me to the vet immediately. Some processionary caterpillar hairs had got in my mouth......oh the pain, i dribbled all over my "mum" too and she was saying ouch and so on........that night she stayed up with me all night putting ice packs on my throat to stop it closing up and her arm was very red and swollen too.........anyway, after lots of love and medicine I started to feel better but then the tip of my tongue dropped off! But I am fine now..........EXCEPT I really need a forever home. I stayed with my foster family but they have always had lots of dogs (all older than me except one mad boy) and I really need more individual human attention. I am stressed where I am, timid and nervous with new people and situations but I learn fast, one or even two other dogs would be good for me..........and my family are getting on now with health issues so I don't get taken out on walks enough. I agree that I need to find a new family to love but I will miss the ones who saved me.....oh I live with cats too and love them and I quite liked the grandchildren when they visit but not sure I would like under 10s all the time...........can I come and live with you?
Additional information:
Poppy is in a foster home in the Uk and she is proving to be a very easy "no trouble" little girl. She actually is quite a small Lab X.


Health
Poppy is in good health


Type of home that would suit:
A loving, gentle owner.

Anna

Anna before she arrived here
anna anna

This is Anna now, looking so beautiful!

Age: Approx 2 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Retriever X
Nature: Friendly and very loving
Lived with children: Unknown but has a lovely temperament so we feel she would be lovely with children 8+
Lived with cats: Unknown
Good with other dogs: Yes, very good
On the lead: Pulls but not too badly.
Recall: Not bad
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Found straying and injured.

Anna is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever wish to meet. She so enjoys rolling around on the grass and greets everyone as her long lost friend. Anna has made a remarkable recovery considering her injuries. When she arrived with us she was in very poor condition. Her coat was dull, short and lifeless and more worryingly she was very lame on her back leg. Anna now 'runs' around and is enjoying life again. Her coat has grown and she has filled out well. She has won the heart of everyone that has met her and is now ready to be rehomed. Anna's injury to her pelvis has left her with a problem with her bowel and she has to take a daily supplement to enable her to function. This does cause her to leak and her rear needs to be washed to stop her from getting sore. We have consulted with three vets about surgery to help this problem but they feel it would be too risky. We would love to see Anna go to someone who would love and care for her, as she really is a very special girl. How she ever survived on the street in Spain with her horrendous injuries we will never know and she so deserves to know the comforts of a forever, loving home.


Type of home that would suit:
A very kind, patient home with suitable facilities for Anna.

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.
