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 with other males dogs sometimes. 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!

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

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.

Hope


Quiet Home Needed For Hope - A Loyal Companion Dog
Reserved
l

l















Age: 5 years old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Lab X
Nature: Loving and loyal
Lived with children: No
Lived with cats: Yes
Good with other dogs: Yes
On the lead: Not bad
Recall: Good
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes and chipped
Reason for rehoming: Change in circumstances.
General Information:
Hope didn't have a great start to her life and found herself on the streets in Romania where she experienced some cruel treatment. Since arriving here she has been in a home with a very kind lady who has adored her and helped her relax and enjoy life. Sadly her owner is ill and Hope has had to come back to us. She is a loyal and loving girl but once attached to an owner she will protect them and in doing so will not enjoy vistors. Her previous owner would just put her in another room or the garden whilst visitors were present and this worked well. She enjoys going for short walks and in general is a calm and quiet girl. She is good with other dogs dogs and cats and is good on and off lead. Hope will be a fabulous companion for an older person but they must be aware and tolerant of her needs. She is obedient, loving, housetrained and quiet through the night. Estimated weight 15 kilos, so not a large girl. Her coat is easily brushed to keep her clean and she adores being brushed! Hope is spayed, vaccinated and chipped. She is not mad on car travel but travels well and is not car sick, just drools a bit!

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.
