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 but if they run up to him he gets nervous. 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. 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.

General Information:
George and Joe are brothers and best friends. They were owned by a breeder that has recently suddenly died and we were asked to take all his Labradors (over 20). When they arrived they were all extremely frightened, very dirty and in need of veterinary treatment. A couple of weeks later with lots of cuddles, a good bath, vet treatment, good food and they are all feeling and looking very much happier. George and Joe have been enjoying going out for some nice walks with our volunteer dog walkers and we feel they are now ready for adoption. They will need a kind and understanding family that will give them time to adjust and settle in a calm environment. George & Joe are two beautiful boys and with the right owners and treatment will develop more confidence.

Health
Good.

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.
