Neutered/Spayed:Yes

Reason for rehoming: Unclaimed stray
General information :
Larry is in a foster home at the moment and this is what they say about him:
We have only had Larry (full name Larry looloo) a couple of days and I can already tell he is just amazing... you can literally see the intelligence written all over his face.
Although he is big, he is very gentle- especially when taking treats by hand. He was definitely a family dog as he loves being around people. I can't understand how no body is looking for him- he is a little star.
He LOVES playing ball / fetch etc. We brought him down to the river yesterday, when I say he LOVES swimming- its a massive understatement! He was like an absolute maniac running around in the water. No problem with other dogs, chicks, ducks, horses etc.
Whoever adopts Larry is going to be one lucky personI think the saying Happy as Larry was made for this guy. He really is a lil gem :-) He is absolutely full of life and would put a smile on anyone's face! He is well mannered, He will sit and stay. We haven't walked him much on the lead yet. His recall is fantastic, give a whistle and he is straight back to you. He loves to play with the other dogs- I think he would be ok as an only dog but happier with a pal. Perfect for an active lifestyle home.

Nico


nico

nico

nico

nico




Age: Approx 2 yrs old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Nico is an affectionate, friendly, playful boy
Lived with children: Not known but good with all the children he has met
Lived with cats: Not known
Good with other dogs: Yes, good with other dogs.
On the lead: Will need a bit of work.

Neutered/Spayed:Yes
Vaccinated: Yes and chipped
Reason for rehoming: Unclaimed stray

Good points:
Nico is currently in a rescue in Spain but as black dogs are not popular in Spain, Nico stands little chance of getting an offer of a home. If we can secure him a home here we will arrange to transport him over.
Since being at the rescue he has learnt several commands and become a happy, affectionate and socialable dog. Nico like the company of bitches and neutered males, so would make a good second dog. He will need time to adjust and learn new skills and is looking for kindness and patience.

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.
