Anna


A Special Dog With Special Needs
Needing A Special Person to Love Her


paw paw paw
anna anna
Anna before she arrived here
anna anna anna

anna

This is Anna now, looking so beautiful!

Age: Approx 2 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Retriever X
Nature: Friendly and very loving
Lived with children: Unknown but has a lovely temperament so we feel she would be lovely with children 8+
Lived with cats: Unknown
Good with other dogs: Yes, very good
On the lead: Pulls but not too badly.
Recall: Not bad
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Found straying and injured.

Anna is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever wish to meet. She so enjoys rolling around on the grass and greets everyone as her long lost friend. Anna has made a remarkable recovery considering her injuries. When she arrived with us she was in very poor condition. Her coat was dull, short and lifeless and more worryingly she was very lame on her back leg. Anna now 'runs' around and is enjoying life again. Her coat has grown and she has filled out well. She has won the heart of everyone that has met her and is now ready to be rehomed. Anna's injury to her pelvis has left her with a problem with her bowel and she has to take a daily supplement to enable her to function. This does cause her to leak and her rear needs to be washed to stop her from getting sore. We have consulted with three vets about surgery to help this problem but they feel it would be too risky. We would love to see Anna go to someone who would love and care for her, as she really is a very special girl. How she ever survived on the street in Spain with her horrendous injuries we will never know and she so deserves to know the comforts of a forever, loving home.


Type of home that would suit:
A very kind, patient home with suitable facilities for Anna.

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.
