Work needed:
Laura will pull on the lead at first but settles down and is quite good once she has had a good run round at the park. Laura is very good at scaling a fence, so new owner needs to be very aware of this. This 'skill' might be put to good use at a agility class.

Additional Information:
Laura is currently in one of our foster homes where she has settled in very quickly. When she is in the garden she is tethered on a long lead to stop her from jumping the fence and they have found that on country walks she is inclined to wander off a little but will come back to a whistle. This must of course only be done where there are no roads or traffic. Laura is a good girl in the house and is enjoying her new comfy bed!

Someone who is at home during the day and would enjoy being with this lovely lively girl

Good, if a little overweight.

However old he is, he is a happy little chap and would love a new home where he can have lots of company. He can live with children, but we would say children over age 10 yrs as he can be very enthusiastic when greeting people and can knock little ones over in his keenness to say hello. Skipper is a smaller size Lab X which is not very obvious is these photos.

Skipper would like a home that can give him plenty of exercise. He loves to chase a ball and he loves his walks. He would prefer someone who is around most of the day, although he can be left alone for up to 4 hours, he prefers his humans for company.

Fostering an older dog

We are looking for homes that would take on an elderly dog initially as a foster but with the option to adopt on our
'Assisted Adoption Scheme'. This scheme is offered on some of the elderly dogs that have a long term medical condition, such as acute arthritis/diabetes/epilepsy etc. On this scheme we supply the medication for the pre-diagosed condition but other everyday costs are met by the adoptor. For dogs 12 years and over we would cover all medical costs. If you feel you would like to help or want more details please contact the coordinator for your County.
Please click here for details.



We urgently need foster homes in Surrey, Middx, London, Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Glos, Kent, Essex, Berkshire, Suffolk, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire - for dogs of all ages!






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.
