Covid-19 virus and LRRSE

We are working within the current safe guidelines with the Covid-19 virus in the UK to resume rehoming our dogs. You will initially need to complete and submit your application form to us. If we have a suitable match for you we will talk to you about the dog. If things look positive, we can then arrange a safe, controlled home check. Once the home check has been completed successfully we will organise for you to come and meet the dog and if all goes well you will then adopt the dog and take him home with you that day.
It is important that social distancing is observed at all times throughout this process to keep you and our volunteers safe.

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.
