General Information:
Finley is a very sweet, friendly boy. Good with other dogs and loves a cuddle. He will be arriving with us 29th January and is looking for a loving home that are prepared to be patient with him while he adjusts and happy to continue his training. Finley has had a rough time recently in a Romanian dog pound and would not stand a chance of being offered a home as black dogs are sadly hated and treated cruely in Romania and many other foreign countries. Finley with such a sweet and friendly nature really deserves a brilliant home.

Freddy is a handsome, chunky boy. His previous owners were Portuguese so Freddy's knows his commands in Portuguese but he is begining to pick things up in English. Freddy can be quite strong on the lead but he enjoys his walks. He was bitten by a small dog whilst he was on a lead so this has made him wary when other (especially small dogs) run up to him. With careful introduction he is fine. He has lived in a family with fairly young children and is good with them.

Age: Approx 5 months old
Gender: Male & Female - Brother and Sister
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Loyal & Loving
Lived with children: Yes
Lived with cats: Yes
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Will need training to be continued
Recall: Will need work
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: House training strated but will need to be continued.
Neutered/Spayed: No
Vaccinated: Yes
General Information:
ELi & Emmy were found under a dustbin in Cyprus at two days old, they have been hand reared to become healthy, active, intelligent puppies. Due to hand rearing, they have a bond of trust and awareness regarding humans, that is special to orphans. Both are fully vaccinated and microchipped. They have been raised in a quiet rural location with some limited experience in urban areas. They are used to other dogs, both smaller and much larger and have sniffed and been sniffed by dog friendly cats and respected the warnings of those preferring to keep some space. The puppies display no aggression and just wish to play with all. They obviously love playtime but are also happy to relax and observe you getting on with daily life. They have been walked on double lead/harness and behave well. They sleep in rigid beds with layers of blankets and fleece. Stuffed cushions are not advised unsupervised. They do not go the night without mess yet, though are trained to go on newspaper. They are fed twice a day on a fresh packed chicken and rice wet food, with Royal Canin maxi junior constantly available. They are neither greedy nor possessive around food. We will rehome these pups seperately but feel they should have another dog for company. We will only place them in homes where there is someone at home all day.
Eli is dark chocolate in colour, with a white line from his chin to a bib and with some white toes. He is short coated. When last weighed on 13th Dec he was 15.7kg. He knows his name and understands SIT and NO. He is very gentle and companionable and loves to sit beside your legs and receive affection. He is likely going to become a large dog and is already encouraged to stay on the ground and sit instead of jumping up. He likes toys thrown into the air and prefers a frisbee to a ball. He is happy to exchange them for a gravybone. He likes to explore and has been known to dig a hole for his plant cuttings!
Emmy is black and an even colour over her entire body. She is short/medium coated.When last weighed on 13th Dec she was 9.9kg.She knows her name and understands SIT and NO. She is very intelligent and learns quickly.Human contact and companionship are vital to her. She is very very loving and gentle and adores affection.She loves to play and is very competent and persistent when sniffing for treats.

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

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.

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.
