Bella & Bentley

l


Age: Approx 6 months old
Gender: Male & Female - Brother and Sister
Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X probably Terrier
Nature: Loyal & Loving
Lived with children: Yes, older children
Lived with cats: Yes
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: A work in progress
Recall: Will need work
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: House training strated but will need to be continued.
Neutered/Spayed: No
Vaccinated: Yes
General Information:
Bella & Bentley were abandoned at two days old in Spain and have been hand reared to become healthy, active, intelligent puppies. Due to hand rearing, they have a bond of trust and awareness regarding humans, that is special to orphans. Both are fully vaccinated and microchipped. They are currently in a foster home in the UK and this is what they have to say about them:
Both dogs go through the night in their separate crates without incident. Bentley pretty much immediately picked up that he should go outside to do his business. Bella is definitely getting there now and only has the odd accident. She is starting to look to the back door now if she needs to go. We are taking them outside very regularly to try and ensure there are no problems.
They both ‘sit’ nicely on command and some small successes with ‘stay’. As they are so closely bonded together we’re working on separating them for very short periods to try and train and take them out as individuals to help the training process. Walking to heel on a lead is still quite challenging!
Bella is a real sweetie and loves a cuddle and is quite chilled in the house. Bentley is constantly adventure seeking and is very playful indoors but with enough soft toys and chew toys around occupies himself nicely. They both have a lot of energy and already need a lot of exercising - Bella’s favourite game is hiding in a shrub then jumping out on her brother for a high speed chase round the garden.

Age: 9 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Loyal & Loving

Lived with children: Older children

Lived with cats: Yes

Good with other dogs: Generally good

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: TBC

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: TBC

General Information:
Meet Skipper, a lovely friendly boy has come to stay for assessment. He is a lovely boy, with a few quirks but that makes him an individual. As an older dog he is quite low maintenance, happy to be left and will sleep in a crate if need be. He has a few rude manners that we have been working on and he has shown great progress in his time with us. He needs to be an only dog and his social skills with other dogs outside seem fine with us but in the past there has been a few issues. Skipper needs an adult only home and with confident owners, this is just so all rules are kept clear and not confusing. He may be 9 but he still needs his brain and body exercised, so a home that will put the time in to continue his training. He is a small chap, loving chap.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: A confident and experienced owner who has time to spend with him as Skipper enjoys company.

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.
