Max


max

max

max

max



Age: 6 yrs

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Max is independent and comfortable in his own company, he will happily interact with people once a toy is introduced and is very trainable due to his interest in food.

Lived with children: No

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Max chooses to ignore other dogs and will do so if they leave him alone. If they are bouncy or aggressive towards him he will warn them with low growling and raised fur but has stopped when we have told him to and is easily distracted with a ball.

On the lead: Good

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: tbc

Reason for rehoming: Bed guarding

Good points: Max loves playing ball and will return and drop it so the game goes on.

Work needed:
Max will need on-going training with regards to his sleeping arrangements. He can wake up startled and it maybe that he reacts to smell more than sight. So even someone he knows may get a low growl and then he realises who it is he is fine. A comfy training crate turned into a den is needed where he can have his own personal space.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: Max would be ideal with a single person, he seems happier around men than women but that could all depend on the individual

Bruno


bruno

bruno

bruno

bruno









Age: 6 yrs
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Loving and loyal.
Lived with children: Yes but we feel older would be better.
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Good with a halti
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Bruno has seperation anxiety and his owner couldn't cope.
He is now in a foster home and is making progress. This will get better in time but will need patience and understanding.
This is what his foster home have said about this: "He is anxious when on his own and will cry or bark if one of us leaves the house and will look around to try and find us".


Good points: He has a very relaxed, affectionate and loving nature, has a permanent waggy tail and loves kisses. He is very attentive and loves company. He is very obedient and knows sit, stay, wait and down. He likes to settle down after his dinner in the evening and is quiet and will happily sleep for 12 hours at night. Bruno looks forward to his walks and after 5 minutes ball throwing will happily walk by your side. He has been very good with all the dogs he has met when out even the chocolate Labradors that we were told he didn’t get on with. He travels well in the car and loves roaming around the garden.

Work needed:
Bruno definitely benefits from having a regular routine and work will be needed with his separation anxiety. He likes everyone to be together so that he can see them and will try and encourage that. He will bark if someone comes in the door and will need a secure environment when left as can open unlocked doors and let himself out to look for his humans.
Health
Good

Additional information: His foster family said ”That despite a few problems, which are understandable given his experiences Bruno is loving, well behaved, playful and a handsome boy".
Type of home that would suit: A home with someone at home most of the time with the Patience and commitment to help him through his anxiety.

Anna


A Special Dog With Special Needs
Needing A Special Person to Love Her

Anna before she arrived here
anna anna 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.

We have a number of other dogs that we are also looking to place and will share more details about them once you are registered and home checked by us.
So if you don't see the perfect dog for you on our web site, please remember we have a lot more dogs that we don't put on here and you won't get to learn about them unless you register with us, so please go to our contact page and download an application form Please click here for details.







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.
