Age: Approx 1yr old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Lived with children: Teenagers not younger

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Needs work

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: May need brushing up

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes and chipped

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General Information:
Lucia is just 1yr old and has everything to learn still. We think she has been mostly ignored by her previous owner as she has learnt to be quite independent and confident. She is ok with other dogs but will bully them if she gets the chance too. She would be a perfect dog for an experienced owner that has time and who would enjoy training her.

Age: 17 months old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: LabradorX

Nature: Loving and protective

Lived with children: Yes older

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Needs work

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: No

Vaccinated: Not up to date

Reason for rehoming: Family circumstances

General Information:
Lola is a little shy at first but soon warms to you (especially with a treat!). She is quite a chunky girl and pulls a bit on the lead at first but does settle down and walks fairly well on a harness. Lola is a lovely dog and loves human company. As a young dog Lola will need to continue with her training and socialising as she can be cautious of strangers in the home.

Health
Good




Type of home that would suit: : A home that has the time to spend with this lovely girl.





Goldie

Age: 6 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Lab

Nature: Loving and loyal

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Not been socialised with other dogs and gets very excited.

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes and chipped

Reason for rehoming: Being left for long periods due to changes in working hours.

General Information:
Goldie is a brilliant dog in the house. He is loving, affectionate and enjoys the company of all adults and children. Unfortunately he has not been socialised with other dogs and becomes excitable when he sees them, so this will need some work and neutering will also help. Goldie knows lots of commands, is very well behaved in the house and is a happy, healthy dog.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: A family that are prepared to work with Goldie and who can give him lots of love and time.

Chester

Lab or Lab X: LabX
Nature: An independent boy who will do anything for a treat.
Lived with children: No

On the lead: Walks well with a Halti
Recall: Good with a treat
Good Traveller: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Chester needed a different environment.

General Information:
Chester is a lovely boy with good recall. He is the most amazing catcher of biscuits. Whilst he enjoys a fuss he is not a cuddly boy. He loves being outside. Chester will need an adult only home as he can try to herd his family if he feels he needs to. He can mouth when excited but this is being worked on and his new home will need to continue with this.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: A semi-retired or retired home with experience of a large breed dog.





Hope

l

Age: 5 years old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Lab X

Nature: Loving and loyal

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: Yes

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Not bad

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes and chipped

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances.

General Information:
Hope was originally on the streets in Romania where she experienced some cruel treatment and this has left her nervous of men. In general she is a very calm and quiet girl. She loves other dogs and cats and is good on and off lead. She would love a quiet household with a lady for company. She is a little wary of men and does bark/growl at sudden movement by them but has never bitten. She has lived with children but really needs a quieter surrounding, as a hectic household would be too much for her. She is currently in a foster home and when they had male vistors to their home, Hope didn't bat an eyelid. So in a gentle calm environment she copes well. She is obedient,loving, housetrained and quiet through the night. Estimated weight 15 kilos, so not a large girl. Her coat is easily brushed to keep her clean and she adores being brushed! Hope is neutered, vaccinated and chipped. She is not mad on car travel but travels well and is not car sick, just drools a bit!

Type of home that would suit: As above.

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

Terry


Reserved

s



Age: Approx 8yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Lived with children: Teenagers not younger

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Not bad, listens and responds when corrected

Recall: Not tested, will probably be ok

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes and chipped

Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General Information:
Terry is a lovely older gentleman! We were told that he is 8 yrs old but he may be a little older but he is still very active and has plenty of bounce. He was underweight when he came into rescue but is not looking a lot better but because of this he is quite protective of his food, so would need to be fed separately if in with another dog. He get on well with bitches and neutered males and not he is neutered he is more tolerant of entire males. He is fairly good on the lead and will respond when corrected. Great with people and just loves human company. Terry would be a great companion for an active couple or person. Poor old Terry had a bad ear infection in both ears but this has responded well to treatment but he does have a low pain threshold and probably wouldn't respond well to young children pulling his ears or tail (understandably). Terry really deserves a very loving and special home after all he has been through.

Health
As above










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.
