rescue


This page was last updated in January 2022 - Most dogs that come into rescue 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.

Ozzie

l

l

l


Age: 5 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Lab X

Lived with cats: No

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Selective

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Health: Good

Type of home that Ozzie needs: Ozzie is being rehomed due to a relationship break up. Ozzie is mostly friendly with other dogs but does occasionally take a dislike to a dog, so a new owner will need to be aware of this. He is a fun loving, friendly, affectionate dog. He is not always comfortable with strangers entering his home, so may need to have his own space on these occasions. Not lived with children but good with them when introduced.

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.

Sydney

Age: 3 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Lab X Pointer

Lived with cats: No

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Health: Good

Type of home that Sydney needs: Sydney needs an owner that fully understands his needs and will work closely with our trainer to overcome any problems. Once settled in a home he is very unsure of visitors and this will need to be carefully handled. He can also be dominant over what he considers is his space or bed. On the plus side Sydney is a bright, energetic dog that loves a good run and playing 'find it'. He is good with other dogs when out but will need to be an only dog in his new home. He is also ok around children when out but is not suitable to share a house with them. Any potential new owner will be asked to visit Sydney at the kennels at Chessington on two or three occasions and will join our dog trainer for walks with him.

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.

Type of home that Badger needs:Badger is a lively young boy that is looking for a home that can give him plenty of exercise.

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.
