General Information:
Brian is a handsome boy who loves human company. He is a quiet, gentle boy but has his playful times too. He has obviously had some trauma in his life and has a few old scars to show for it. When out for a walk on a lead he is not troubled by other dogs being around. He has obviously been attached by other dogs in the past and this is the reason for some of his old scars and his nervousness with other males dogs sometimes. He loves his walks and is very good on the lead and takes a treat very gently and will sit and wait at the curb. It has taken Brian a few weeks to really relax and enjoy life and as seen in these new photos he is now a happy lad and enjoys a good old tummy rub! He will needs a loving and understanding home that will give the lovely Brian a happy life.

Ruby was found straying in Romania and captured by the dog catchers and placed in the dog pound. Her treatment by the dog catchers was brutal and she is now very frightened of anything put around her neck. It is going to take time and patience but in time she will learn that no one is going to hurt her again. Ruby is a lovely, friendly girl and will make a gentle, understanding owner a fabulous companion. Ruby will benefit from being any only dog.

Humphrey & Phoebe

Age: 4.5 weeks old - will not be ready until 8 weeks old
Gender: Male & Female
Lab or Lab X: LabradorXprobably Greek Sheepdog
Nature: Absolutely gorgeous, well socialised and handled
Lived with children: Yes
Lived with cats: Young enough to be introduced to cats
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Obviously will need to be trained
Housetrained: Training has been started on puppy pads
Neutered/Spayed: No
Vaccinated: Not yet, too young
Reason for rehoming: A surprise litter!

General Information:
Humphrey & Phoebe are two very lucky pups and so is their mummy! Mummy dog was rescued in Greece and brought over to England by a lovely family that couldn't leave this gorgeous stray LabradorX to the perils of roaming the streets. When she arrived in England and went home with them she produced a couple of little presents 'Humphrey & Phoebe'. I doubt any of these dogs would have survived if it wasn’t for this family! (Hats off to them!!!) These gorgeous, cuddly pups are now just over 4 weeks old and are healthy, well cared for, socialised and regularly handled and cuddled, and are growing into fabulous dogs. Humphrey is mostly chocolate in colour and Phoebe has white markings. Daddy is unknown but is most likely to be a Greek Sheepdog. We have offered help in finding perfect homes for these pups and will only place them with families that are at home during the day and have plenty of time to train and love them. We will be placing these pups in separate homes.

Health
Good.

Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes

After a poor start in life Cypher has come such a long way with his current family. They have worked very hard with his training and he has become a very loving and loyal boy. He loves his exercise and ball games, and a cuddle on the sofa with his owner just finishes the day off perfectly for him. Cypher is still cautious of men when out walking and has become very protective of his home when visitors arrive. Cypher is living with a young and busy family who love him dearly but he is struggling to cope with the regular unexpected visitors. His family are continuing to work with him on this but feel that a quieter home would be better for Cypher longterm.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: Cypher is looking for a couple who enjoy exercise as he loves his outside time and who are prepared to continue to work with him.

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.
