The family recently had a change in their circumstances and an entire male dog has now joined their family but Marley is not a happy lad and has gone for him a couple of times. Marley has been good with bitches and other neutered males in the past. Marley needs another rural home and will enjoy being an only dog again. He is very strong on the lead and has been exercised mostly off lead. Marley is a good boy in the house and can be left for a couple hours without any problems. He has a lovely nature with people and treats all guests with excitment and beleives they have just come to see him!!!

Reason for rehoming: Surrendered to the dog pound

Lexi was surrendered to the dog pound and was at great risk of being put to sleep, so we now have her with us. We are told that she has had some issues with being possessive with her owners but since in kennels she has shown no sign of this and is a friendly and loving girl. She will need an all adult home, that can give her the love and forever committment she so deserves.

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

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.
