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!

Bailey


l

l

l











Age: 2 years old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X Schnauzer
Nature: Friendly, energetic, intelligent boy
Lived with children: Teenage
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes but energetic
On the lead: Heels well but might pull to chase a cat or to say hello to another dog
Recall: Mostly Ok especially if you have a treat!
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Needs more time than current owners have to give him

General Information:
Bailey is a tall, very handsome lad. He knows a lot of commands and is an intelligent dog. Bailey does have some things he dislikes (having his legs or tummy groomed) and over zealous play. He is a big foodie and clear perameters need to be set around food e.g. sit and wait. He will steal from the kitchen surfaces, so owner needs to be sure food is kept of reach. Bailey would be perfect for an experienced owner who will be understanding to his needs.

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.

Purity


Special forever or foster home needed urgently for Purity


l

Age: 6 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Very timid
Lived with children: No
Lived with cats: N/K
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Please read below
Recall: N/K
Good Traveller: Ok
Housetrained: She has been clean in her kennel
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes

General Information:
Purity is such a sad little girl. She arrived from Romania so frightened, completely shut down and just waiting for the next bad thing to happen to her. Purity needs to know that life is going to be good now and no one else is going to hurt her. She urgently needs to come out of the kennels she is currently in and go in with someone that understands her fears, will be exceptionally patient with her and let her blossom and start to enjoy life and trust again. Going into a home with a friendly older, confident and gentle dog would also do her the world of good as she will learn from him/her. This will be a big commitment and it needs to be a calm and gentle environment and person to make this work. If you feel you could help this poor little girl then please contact us and we will arrange for you to meet her.

Henry


Reserved
l

l

l





Age: 7 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Loving, a little nervous sometimes of some things

Lived with children: Older children 10+

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Pulls, but better using a halti and harness.

Recall: Unknown

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes


Reason for rehoming: Elderly owner no longer able to care for him

General Information:
Henry is a gorgeous boy and loves nothing more than going for a good walk but sadly they have been very few and far between over the last couple of years as the health of his elderly owners declined. So, he does pull on the lead but using a halti and a harness slows him down somewhat. He has not been tested off lead and this is something that would need to be done carefully when he is rehomed. He loves a cuddle and loves human company, so we are looking for a home with someone at home most of the time as Henry has a bit of seperation anxiety at the moment.

Health
Good


Type of home that would suit: A home with someone at home most of the day and that has time and love to give this lovely boy.

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.
