All these dogs were saved from the Dog Meat Trade in China

We are delighted to announce that all 4 pups and 2 adult dogs arrived safely and are now ready for their forever homes:
3 Gorgeous Pups - 2 boys and 1 girl
(Photos taken as they arrived and not sure who is who!)


l l l
l l l
All to these pups are used to playing with other dogs and are friendly but a little nervous and have no training. As you would expect they are lively pups and will need homes that have time, love and lots of patience to train these absolutely gorgeous little dogs. Although we are told they are 8 months old they are small and more the size we would expect a 5 to 6 month old to be so will probably grow to be small to medium size Labradors. They will need complete training as, so far, they have only been in kennels but have had plenty of human contact and attention. They are not yet used to walking on a lead and will not be house trained. We will be placing these pups in homes that have someone at home during the day. We will be looking for very generous donations to help us cover the costs of saving these dogs.

Age: approx 7/8 months old
Vaccinated & Health Checked: Yes

Daddy Dog - Jude

l l l

Daddy dog is approx 4 yrs old. He is a lovely playful boy and is used to walking on a lead. He will probably need house training or at least reminding of the right place to go. He is also going to need some training but he is a smart little guy and we are sure he will soon catch on. He is looking for a home with someone that has lots of time, love and patience.
Jude is vaccinated and health checked and will need to be neutered after a settling in period.
We will be looking for very generous donations to help us cover the costs of saving these dogs.

Special Home Needed for Teddy


l
l
l
l
l

Age: 2 yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X

Nature: Nervous but friendly

Lived with children: Needs to be an all adult home

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: No, nervous of other dogs.

On the lead: Not too bad

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Unsuitable home for a dog that is nervous of children.

General Information:Teddy has many lovely qualities. He is a very loving boy and really enjoys homan company. He is good in the house and just happy to exercise in the garden and have a ball thrown for him. In his past he must have been badly treated by children and he is now very nervous of them. He is also wary of other dogs. Teddy's ideal home would be with someone that wants a good companion, has a large garden and no children. Outside the home Teedy is a bundle of nerves and really doesn't enjoy going for a walk. His ideal owner would be happy to let Teddy just get his exercise in their garden. Teddy's past must have been a very frightening time and we feel that he will probably always have these fears, so needs a kind and loving person or couple that understand this and let Teddy enjoy life on his terms. We have recently had Teddy in a foster home and they have said he is a sweet boy.

Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: A family committed to working with a young dog.

Brian

This lovely boy has been through so much in his life, we would love to see him find someone who will love him and make the rest of his life a happy one.

lll
Hello my name is Brian and I am not enjoying life at the moment.
I am back in kennels and although the girls and boys are lovely to me and give me lots of cuddles, I really don’t want to be here anymore. I want a home of my own with someone who will understand me and really love me.
Once upon a time I had a family that loved and cared for me in Romania but when I was no longer a cute little puppy they turned me out on to the streets to fend for myself. I was attacked by other street dogs and have lots of scars to show for it. It was so frightening and made me very scared of other dogs in case they hurt me again. Eventually I was taken into a dog shelter but life still was very hard with not a lot of food and many dogs wanting to fight and hurt me still. A kind lady came along and took me to the vets to get me some treatment for my bites and she looked after me and sent me over to Labrador Retriever Rescue in England who had seen my photo and wanted to help me.
When I arrived I was very shut down as I was waiting for the next nasty thing to happen to me. After a few weeks I realised that actually things at last were getting better...good food...no biting dogs....lots of cuddles and a lovely man called Roger who came and took me for walks and talked to me nicely...Wow! One day when we came back from one of those walks I couldn’t control myself any longer and my face broke into a huge smile and I rolled around on the grass, kicking my legs up in the air and Roger and the girls at the kennels laughed loudly at me!
ll
I was really pleased when I was given a home with a couple that said they understood me and would look after me but they clearly didn't undertand me and that sometimes I still get a bit frightened if people get too over familiar with me and when meeting new people I need time to know they are not going to hurt me and let me get used to them before wrapping their arms around me...I just save that for my most trusted friends! Don't get me wrong I just LOVE a cuddle and I love human company. Anyway it didn't work out and I was brought back to the kennels where my BFF's Sue, Roger, Keira and Kelly were waiting to love and cuddle me.
Since coming back to the kennels I feel so sad and really miss having my own home. People have offered a home for me but they really haven’t grasped that I need to be gently handled and given time to trust and settle.
If you take me home I promise to be a good clean boy in your house and within a little while you and I will be very best of friends.

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.
