Urgent Appeal
For an Experienced Foster or Forever Home


We Urgently Need to find Lexi a foster or forever home


l l l

Age: Approx 1yr old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X
Lived with cats: N/K
Good with other dogs: Yes

General Information:
Lexi is a VERY frightened little dog. What her start in life in Romania must have been like we just can't begin to imagine, but we do know that she has experienced some very cruel treatment. She is terrified of men and will just about tolerate the company of a gentle female. However, she is good with other dogs but will hide behind them when humans are around. Lexi is currently in a foster home with her sister but needs to be separated now to develop confidence and trust. We are looking for an all female home, that has experience of Romanian or severely traumatised dogs.

Health
Lexi is in good health and is vaccinated and spayed.

General Information:
Bailey has been living in a fairly rural home, so we are looking for the same again for him. He is used to being exercised off lead in the field and his contact with other dogs has been minimal, so does not act appropriately with them, especially other male dogs. On the plus side Bailey is a loving, happy and friendly boy and loves human company. He has lots of energy and would really enjoy an active home. Suitable with children 10 and over.

Bert


l l



Age: 2 yrs old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X
Nature: Loving, friendly and lively
Lived with children: Suitable with older children 12+
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Ok with other dogs when introduced properly.
On the lead: Pulls at first
Recall: Will need some work
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Change of circumstances

General Information:
Bert has recently been in a foster home and is reported as being the perfect house guest. He greets everyone warmly and is a lovely boy to have around. Bert is very strong on the lead and really needs a very strong owner to manage and train him to slow down a little! The ideal home for Bert would be with someone with a very large garden that he could exercise in. He does become protective and would certainly keep the burglars away! When out on walks he can react to other dogs but when introduced carefully he will enjoy their company. Bert really does need an experienced owner that is happy to work with him. He is a very handsome, affectionate boy and does have many good qualities.

Thor

Age: Approx 1 yr old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Loving and friendly

Lived with children: Suitable with older children 12+

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: Good with bitches but needs work with other males.

On the lead: Quite good

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Injured stray

General Information:
Thor was found on the streets of Romania with a very badly broken front leg that had to be amputated. He has recovered well from his surgery and gets around well on his three remaining legs. He has been neutered and vaccinated. Finding a home for a black dog in Romania is almost impossible, so finding a home for a three legged black dog is totally impossible. That is why we have agreed to take him and he will be with us later this month. We are told he loves human company, is very affectionate and really enjoys a cuddle. He is young and still has more training required but he is a bright boy and will respond quickly.

Type of home that would suit: A loving home with time to share with Odin.

Monkey


l

l

Age: 8 months old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador X (small size)
Nature: Loving, friendly, playful and lively
Lived with children: Suitable with older children
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Pulls
Recall: Will need some work
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: No
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: See below

General Information:
Monkey is currently in a foster home with several other dogs and is very playful and happy. This has shown us that although Monkey loves the company of other dogs he would really benefit by being with only one companion dog and preferably a young playful (spayed) bitch or a very active home that could give Monkey lots of attention. Monkey is a loving and loyal boy and enjoys human company. He will steal from work surfaces but is not destructive and enjoys playing with his toys. We are looking for a home for Monkey with someone at home all day that can give him an active life and complete his training. Monkey has been crated when left and although cries at first he does settle. He likes to be close to his humans and will sleep on your feet when you watch the TV and curls up on his bed in the bedroom.

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.
