rescue


This page was last updated on January 2021 - Please be aware that there are far fewer dogs coming through rescue at the moment and although we are happy to receive your application to adopt a dog, there will most likely be a considerable wait. We do have a lot of beautiful Labradors and Retrievers waiting to come to us from China but this also may take some time before we are able to fly them over. Once you have sent us your application form, we will initially acknowledge receipt of it but please don't send follow up messages as this just takes up time we could be spending on the dogs that need our help. We will contact you if and when we have a suitable dog for you.

Age: 5 yrs old

Gender: Male

Lived with children: Suitable with teenagers

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Good with dogs he knows well and trusts.

Recall: N/K

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

General Information:Billy is currently in a foster home and this is what they say about him:
Billy is a lovely and lively labrador/patterdale terrier cross. He is a good looking and very affectionate dog, who once he has got to know you is happy to follow you around all day. Whilst he is house trained he can still sneak onto your sofa or take food if you are not looking! He is generally good with people but can be anxious and get over excited when near other dogs, particularly small ones. So he would be best suited for a previous dog owner who can recognise the signs and guide him appropriately. As a 5 year old he is full of energy, very athletic and enjoys at least two good walks a day. He also has a tendency to jump up so may not be suitable with young children around. A quiet rural home would be perfect for him.

Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: As above

Please do not phone or email us asking for more details of dogs that are on the website as we initially need to register and home check you to ascertain a suitable match. Go to our contact page to download an application form and an information leaflet.

Age: 7yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Friendly & playful

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Loves other dogs, large or small

On the lead: Not too bad until he sees something he wants to get to and then he gives a big tug

Recall: Not bad

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: No

General Information:Hudson is a lovely friendly boy and good in the house but he will steal food if left within his reach (typical Lab!). He is currently in a foster home and this is what they have said about him with regards to reactions with other dogs:
Other Dogs – This was our first issue with Hudson and he still has an issue with other dogs when on a lead. This is basically lead anxiety, he is afraid of some dogs and his anxiety builds up when can’t get to them. He will bark and get agitated and want to get to them, looks like attacking them, but when you take him off the lead, he is no problems with other dogs at all. He isn’t too sure with some dogs when they snap at him as he will back off. But generally, he will just walk away if dogs are not interested in him. He will run around like a looney when another dog wants to play and normally greets others without issue.
Generally, Hudson is a very affectionate dog and a 70lb lap dog!! He does enjoy a cuddle and is a bit of a softy when it comes to that. He does require some training and I believe, looking at him after a couple of weeks, that should not really be an issue as he is getting better by the day and learning things quickly. I would like to see him go to a family with other dog(s) so he can learn to be a dog and a bit of companionship as he does seem to get along with other dogs. A first meet with another ‘companion’ dog should be done without a lead on.


Health: Good

Note to adopters:

Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto do not show up in rescue. We do not 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 are 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 do not 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 lifes sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as Lassie, Rin Tin Tin or Toto. So please, please do not 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.
