Brian

This lovely boy has been through so much in his life, we would love to see him find someone who will love him and make the rest of his life a happy one.

l
Hello my name is Brian and I am not enjoying life at the moment.
I am back in kennels and although the girls and boys are lovely to me and give me lots of cuddles, I really don’t want to be here anymore. I want a home of my own with someone who will understand me and really love me.
Once up a time I had a family that loved and cared for me in Romania but when I was no longer a cute little puppy they turned me out on to the streets to fend for myself. I was attacked by other street dogs and have lots of scars to show for it. It was so frightening and made me very scared of other dogs in case they hurt me again. Eventually I was taken into a dog shelter but life still was very hard with not a lot of food and many dogs wanting to fight and hurt me still. A kind lady came along and took me to the vets to get me some treatment for my bites and she looked after me and sent me over to Labrador Retriever Rescue in England who had seen my photo and wanted to help me.
When I arrived I was very shut down as I was waiting for the next nasty thing to happen to me. After a few weeks I realised that actually things at last were getting better...good food...no biting dogs....lots of cuddles and a lovely man called Roger who came and took me for walks and talked to me nicely...Wow! One day when we came back from one of those walks I couldn’t control myself any longer and my face broke into a huge smile and I rolled around on the grass, kicking my legs up in the air and Roger and the girls at the kennels laughed loudly at me!
l

Than I moved in with a lady and settled in very quickly and was told that I was a very good boy in the house. I walk quite nicely on the lead but I am not let off as I am still very nervous of other dogs. I don’t go looking for trouble with them but if they suddenly come over to me then I will react nervously. I lived happily with the lady for many months and then one day she came home and I greeted her happily but then this strange man in work overalls followed behind her into our house and I protected my owner by growling at him and nipped his sock. The lady was angry with me and returned me to LRRSE.
Since coming back to the kennels I feel so sad and really miss having my own home. People have offered a home for me but they really haven’t grasped that I need to be gently handled and given time to trust and settle.
If you take me home I promise to be a good clean boy in your house and within a little while you and I will be very best of friends.

Teddy


l
l
l
l
l

Age: 1 yr old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X

Nature: Nervous but friendly

Lived with children: Yes but but not young children. Teenagers would be more suitable.

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: He will sometimes bark and pull towards other dogs and other times ignores them. Just needs more socialising on a regular, daily basis.

On the lead: Not too bad

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Teddy was jealous of the attention the children received.

General Information:Teddy is a very loving boy and loves a game. He can be nervous of new people or surroundings but with a tasty treat he soon gains confidence. He enjoys his walks and will become excited when he sees other dogs but our dog walkers feel this is more excitement than aggression. He needs an owner that is happy to continue to socialise him. We feel he would really benefit from a good dog training class where he can be around other dogs and learn how to behave with them. Teddy is a very sweet lad and really deserves someone to adore him.

Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: A family committed to working with a young dog.

LuLu


A very sweet little girl looking for a gentle, kind home.


l l
l l

Age: 1 yr 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:
This is what her fosterer has to say about her:
Lulu arrived with us in November 2018 with her sister Lexi. Both were very shut down and terrified of their own shadows. They didn’t eat or drink for 48 hours nor leave their crate which had been placed in a quiet corner of the utility room.
Five months later, Lexi has been rehomed with a new family and Lulu is coming on in leaps and bounds. She is now fully integrated into family life with myself, husband, daughters and two other Labradors. She loves being made a fuss off, particularly tickled on her chest, under her chin and behind her ears. If you stop petting her, she will paw you for more. She is very sociable with us and is less scared of noises around the house. She does however, hate the noise of the hoover, which seems a good reason for me not to do any housework!
As yet we have been unable to put a harness on her although this is ongoing. She loves cooked chicken so we are feeding her this whilst she is sitting on the harness which seems to be going well. Lulu will still retreat to her crate when visitors arrive although after a while she will emerge particularly if they have snacks or chicken. We went away overnight and my parents dog sat for us and Lulu spent most of the weekend on the sofa with my mum wanting to be petted. Lulu loves running around the garden and is quite happy amusing herself outside although she does like to nap quite frequently during the day. I think it will be quite a while before we will be able to get a harness and lead on her and before she will be confident in traffic, if ever, but each week we are making small steps. Lulu would be happy to be an only dog or with another small dog and is good with children and chickens (see photo) She sleeps downstairs in her crate all night and is totally clean in the house. She would make a lovely companion for someone who has time to spend with her and continue to improve 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.

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: 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.

rescue






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.
