Hope


Quiet Home Needed For Hope - A Loyal Companion Dog
l

l















Age: 5 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Lab X
Nature: Loving and loyal
Lived with children: No
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 didn't have a great start to her life and found herself on the streets in Romania where she experienced some cruel treatment. Since arriving here she has been in a home with a very kind lady who has adored her and helped her relax and enjoy life. Sadly her owner is ill and Hope has had to come back to us. She is a loyal and loving girl but once attached to an owner she will protect them and in doing so will not enjoy vistors. Her previous owner would just put her in another room or the garden whilst visitors were present and this worked well. She enjoys going for short walks and in general is a calm and quiet girl. She is good with other dogs dogs and cats and is good on and off lead. Hope will be a fabulous companion for an older person but they must be aware and tolerant of her needs. 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 spayed, vaccinated and chipped. She is not mad on car travel but travels well and is not car sick, just drools a bit!

Billy


l l

l

Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X Patterdale (medium size)
Nature: Loving, friendly and lively
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Ok with other dogs when introduced properly but still needs more work socialising but better since neutering.
On the lead: More work needed
Recall: Will need some work
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Change of circumstances

General Information:
Billy has spent recent weeks in our retraining centre and has come along well. He is a typical young dog that hasn't had the training or socialising when young, so although doing well at the centre, his training and socialising will need to be continued. Billy loves to play and enjoys a game of ball. We think he would make a great dog for a family with teenage children that would enjoy helping with his training. He has lots of energy and might also enjoy accompanying you on a little jog!

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.

Urgent Appeal
For an Experienced Fosterer


We Urgently Need to find Lexi & Lulu their perfect foster home to allow them to recover and to begin to enjoy life as every dog should.


l l l

Age: Approx 1yr old
Gender: Female - Sister
Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X’s
Lived with cats: N/K
Good with other dogs: Yes

General Information:
Lexi & Lulu are two very frightened little dogs. They have come over from Romania and have obviously had some very bad experiences so far in their lives. They take great comfort in each other and therefore must stay together. We desperately need to get them into a foster home that can just let them chill out and blossom in their own time. It must be a foster home that has had experience with Romanian dogs or extremely traumatised dogs as these girls need to develop slowly and will require a lot of patience and gentle care. They are clean in their kennel so would go out into the garden if the door is open. They cannot be walked outside of the house and are very frightened of having a lead put on them. The ideal foster home would also have a gentle confident dog/s and no children. Our heart is breaking seeing these girls so frightened and unhappy, so please get in contact with us if you have the experience to be able to help them.

Health
They are in good health. Have both been spayed and are fully vaccinated.

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.
