lolita

lolita

lolita

lolita



Age: 22 months

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: A friendly, playful girl

Lived with children: Unknown

Lived with cats: Unknown

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Will need some work

Recall: Will need work

Todd


todd


todd


todd











Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Dog
Lab or Lab X: Labrador
Nature: Nervous by nature and afraid of sudden movements, however this seems to be slightly improving. Todd is extremely wary of strangers entering the house, so this must be handled carefully untill Todd is comfortable with the new arrival.
Lived with children: Yes
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Todd does have a tendency to snap at other dogs, however on most occasions he is fine with them. This is improving all the time.
On the lead: Todd is currently attending classes to help with his scoialing with both dogs and humans and is making progress but this will need to be continued by any new owners.
Recall: Average recall, unless distracted.
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Todd's owner didn't feel equipped to deal with the issues that Todd has.

Good points:
Food orientated which makes training much easier to do. Todd loves to play fetch with a ball and will retrieve the ball also. Todd will wait patiently until he is told he can eat his food and you can also take Todd's food away from him with no issues. Todd responds to the word 'mine' when being asked to drop a toy or a ball.

Work needed:
Todd has many issues that will need to be worked on daily. Has become protective when out on the lead. Socialising needs to be continued. Sometimes comes across as aggressive with other dogs when on the lead but he is ok if other dog owners give you the opportunity to let him say hello.


Additional information:
Todd has been attending socialisation classes whilst he has been staying at kennels, and he is making tremendous improvement each time. Type of home that would suit: Todd will need to go to a home who has experience in working with dogs who have behavioural issues. The new home would also need to be willing to take Todd to a socialisation class where he can learn how to be around other dogs and people. Any potential new home would be best to discuss all of Todd's issues with the area coordinator first, prior to committing to rehoming him and we will continue to give advice and support once he is rehomed.

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.
