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.

Very Special Home Needed For LuLu


Lulu is still searching for her forever home. She is a very sweet little girl looking for a gentle, kind home.
If you feel that you can offer this lovely girl the home she desperately deserves please contact us.


l l l l l l

Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Timid but very sweet
Lived with cats: Not known but as you can see she is happy to share her crate with a chicken!
Good with other dogs: Yes and is in foster with other dogs
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
General Information:
A message from her foster home:
Lulu came to live with us in November 2018 and was a terrified little dog and very shut down. After lots of patience and tender loving care she has blossomed into a sweet little girl who loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with you and being petted. She now wears a collar and we are in the process of getting used to a lead. She remains very timid and takes a while to adjust to new situations and people; although hand feeding her cooked chicken is her favourite. She is house trained and sleeps in her crate at night, loves her food and chews. She still requires patience to adjust to new things but is very happy within the family environment. If she is uncomfortable with a situation, she will retreat to her crate until she is feels confident to emerge again. As yet, she has not been out for a walk, as she has been scared of a lead but she tears around the garden like a greyhound when she gets the chance. She loves being in the garden and makes herself comfortable under the bushes in the shade.
Lulu now needs a permanent home with someone who is at home more and can continue building her confidence.
Health
Good

Type of home that would suit:
Someone that will continue to allow LuLu to develop skills and confidence in her own time and very happy to continue the good work that has been done already by our fosterers.

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.
