rescue


This page was last updated in June 2021 - Please be aware that there are far fewer dogs coming through rescue at the moment so there will most likely be a considerable wait. Most dogs that are coming in do have training and/or behaviour problems that will need continued work, so if you are looking for the "perfect, easy, well trained dog" then we are unable to help you at the moment. However, if you are totally committed and do really want to help a "RESCUE" dog then we will be happy to receive an application form from you. Once you have sent us your application form, we will initially acknowledge receipt of it and will contact you if and when we have a suitable dog for you.



Buzz

l
l



Age: 5yrs old

Gender: Male

Breed: Lab X

Lived with children: Quite bouncy so would probably be better with older children 10+

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Coming along well.

On the lead: Pulls but is getting better

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

General Information:Buzz is currently in a foster home and his training and socialising skills are being worked on and have come along really well. Buzz is a lovely, friendly boy who really enjoys a cuddle. He was reactive around other dogs originally but over the past few weeks he has made a lot of improvement but this is something that will need to be worked on. He is good in the house and loves to be by your side. He needs a home with someone that is happy to continue his training and give him the company and love that he needs.

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.

Shadow

Age: 3/4yrs old

Gender: Male

Breed: Lab x

Lived with children: older children

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Yes

On the lead: Ok

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Will need a bit of help with this as he has spent a lot of time kept outside.

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

General Information: Shadow is a lovely friendly lad. He is currently sharing a kennel with a bitch so would be happy to live alongside a bitch. Good with other dogs when on walks. Will need some reminders with house training and poor Shadow has spent a lot of his life locked outside and mostly ignored. He is a happy, fairly lively boy and really deserves a loving home with people who are happy to put some training in place.

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.

Skye

Age: 7yrs old

Gender: Female

Breed: Skye is a Husky

Lived with children: Not suitable with children

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Needs to be an only dog

On the lead: Good

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

General Information:Skye is currently in a foster home and this is what they say about her:
Skye sits, give paws, likes to be in the same room as you in the evening. She can be left during the day for up to 4 hours without to much trouble, enjoys two walks a day. She sleeps down stairs and will sneak on the sofa when you are not around.
She can be very affectionate and loves a stroke and belly tickle. She will approach you and put her head on your lap but if she wants to be left alone, she will lift her top lip and show her teeth. I think Skye would be best suited to a home with older teenagers as respect is needed when she wants space.
She walks well on a lead. Skye doesn't seem to like it when other dogs approach head on. I have done a few social walks with other dogs and she is not troubled when the dogs are walking behind her.
As Skye is not good around food she is not allowed in the room when we are eating and given the chance she will steal food. If she gets hold of something she shouldn't have, it's very hard if not impossible to get it off her.
She really is a lovely dog, has a real character, loves a sing song! Likes water, we have bathed her and it went well and she doesn't mind being brushed.

Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: As above

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.
