A beautiful big girl, that desperately needs a forever home!

Age: 4yr old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Lived with children: Yes, 10+
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Ok on a harness
Recall: Not tested, will probably need some work
Good Traveller: A restless traveller
Housetrained: Yes, good in the house
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes and chipped
Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances

General Information:
Sandie is a stunning looking girl. She is a large size Lab/Retriever X. Sandie is an affectionate, bouncy girl that although she is 4 yrs old she still displays puppy like behaviour (has mad half hours....don't we all!). There is no harm in Sandie what so ever and she needs a home that can cope with a 'large dog', as when she decides to pull on the lead (not often but occasionally) she needs firm control. She loves her walks and our dog walkers speak well about her but sometimes she gets unnerved with large traffic busses/lorries. She needs a home that can give her plenty of exercise, stimulation and company. She is good in the house and suitable around older children, maybe teenagers. She will sometimes mouth when excited and this can be uncomfortable but easily remedied using toys. Sandie desperately needs some stability in her life as she has been rejected and 'given up on', without giving her time to settle and adjust. It won’t be an easy ride at first but as Sandie begins to feel secure and loved, she will calm down and show that she is well worth the effort. Sandie is currently in kennels and this is not helping her. We would love to see this beautiful girl find her forever home very very soon.

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

Age: 5 years old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Lab X

Nature: Loving and loyal

Lived with children: Teenagers only

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!

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: As above.

Age: 17 months old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: LabradorX

Nature: Loving and affectionate

Lived with children: Yes older

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Pulls a bit at first but soon settles down.

Recall: Needs work

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: No

Vaccinated: Not up to date

Reason for rehoming: Family circumstances

General Information:
When Lola arrived she was quite shy and nervous but over the past couple of weeks she has really blossomed and is much happier and more confident. She loves her walks and is generally good on the lead, maybe pulls a little at first with excitement but soon settles down. She is an affectionate girl and leans against you to let you know she is enjoying your company. She will sometimes still get a little nervous of heavy traffic but this is understandable and she is still a young dog. The ideal home for Lola would be in a family home with all adults or older calm children. She is not aggressive but would become frightened around young, boisterous children. Lola is a real poppet and has so much love to give.

Health
Good




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

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.
