rescue


This page was last updated in May 2022 - Most dogs that come into rescue have training and/or behaviour problems that will need continued work, so if you are looking for the "perfect, easy, well trained dog" then we are unable to help you at the moment. However, if you are totally committed and do really want to help a "RESCUE" dog then we will be happy to receive an application form from you. Once you have sent us your application form, we will initially acknowledge receipt of it and will contact you if and when we have a suitable dog for you.

Age: 1 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: LabradorX

Lived with cats: No

On the lead: Needs further work

Recall: Not known

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: A work in progress

Neutered/Spayed:Yes

Health: Good

Type of home needed:

Solo is arriving with us on 11th May. He is coming from Bahrian where this unwanted pup was found playing on the streets and in danger of being poisoned or shot. He was taken into a foster home and has shown that he is a lovely happy little guy and good with people and other dogs. His house training is coming along well but will need a little more work but that is his only downside everything else is good. Solo has been neutered and had all his vaccinations and has a passport. A kind and loving home with older children would be good for this lovely little boy.

Chocolate Charlie is a lovely boy and very good in the house. He is friendly and affectionate and will be ok with children 8yrs and over. His reactions to other dogs when he is on a lead has been a wagging tail and a lot of interest but if they get too close he is unsure and will react but we have found that this can be managed easily and will improve with more socialisation. We are looking for a loving, committed home for Charlie.

Leo

Age: 3 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Golden Retriever

Suitable to live with cats: No

On the lead: Not too bad

Recall: Not tested

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Health: Good

Type of home needed:

Lovely Leo had come from Bahrain. He was obviously someones much loved pet and then for some reason found himself on the streets lost and confused. He wandered into a house and didn't want to leave and they were kind enough to look after him whilst blood tests, vaccinations and passports were sorted out by an English lady working in rescue in Bahrain. She then contacted us and we agreed to help Leo as dogs don't always fare well in Bahrain. This is what we know about Leo:
Character...Charming, energetic, loves and likes to play with people.Leo loves to play with toys, likes ball and fetch, toys should make of durable materials. He gets well along with most female dogs, may show some aggressive on other dominant male dogs if they want to challenge him. He is doing well at outside pee/poop, as long as can take him out at least 2-3 times a day, seldom did inside the boarding room. He has received one month boarding training in Nov, 2021 to correct some light tendency on self-protection on toys and food. Successfully completed. He has a sensative tummy so needs to be kept on a good quality complete dog food. He has not lived with children or cats before so I am not sure what he will be like. He met children at events and seems very patient with them.
We are looking for a gentle, patient home for Leo with people that will give him chance to adjust to all the changes and make him feel loved.

Bailey
Do you have a heart big enough to help this lovely boy?

l

l


Age: 2 yrs old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Lab X

Suitable to live with cats: No

On the lead: Pulls

Recall: Not tested but will need work

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Health: Good

Type of home needed:

Our lovely boy Bailey was a very frightened boy when we first met him but over the weeks he has been with us he has started to enjoy life at last. He has responded well to gentle handling and allowing him to dictate how long and how far he wants to go on his walks. In other words not pushing him outside his comfort zone. We can clearly see that Bailey is more confident around females but accepts men as long as they have a gentle approach. A rural home with a large garden for Bailey to mooch around in and just small walks to build his confidence up, would be perfect for him. A home with no children or visiting children and a place for Bailey to be away from any visitors until he is comfortable with other people coming into the house. Bailey sadly has had a very bad start in life but it is so rewarding to see him now enjoy going out for a walk and enjoying a cuddle. Bailey needs a caring and committed owner who will not give up on him.

Willow

Age: 2 years old

Gender: Female

Lab or Lab X: Mix breed

Suitable to live with cats: No

On the lead: Pulls but not too bad

Recall: Not tested but will need work

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Health: See below

Type of home needed:2 year old spayed mix breed Willow is such a gorgeous little girl. As a puppy she was found severely injured but after treatment made a good recovery. She does walk with a limp on her back leg but this does not stop her and when off the lead she runs like the wind! She is not on any medication and is enjoying being fairly active. She is very affectionate and loves a belly rub and really enjoys her walks. She is not good with other dogs and becomes nervous if they run up to her. In a home environment she can become fearful of men and strangers and this will need to be handled with compassion as this is obviously a reflection on her early life. Using a child gate and giving her a safe place will help this situation and we will put in place a trainer to guide any new owner on helping her. Willow needs a child free home.

A loving quiet home in a rural area would be great for Bentley. This little guy has a lot to offer the right people.

Coming very soon from China
Carrot (mummy dog) & her 2 now fully grown pups- Erhuai (male) 2yr old & Sanshuai (female) 2yr old

l

Housetrained: No

Neutered/Spayed:Yes

Health: Good

Type of home needed:

Coming soon from China and saved from the dog meat trade, 3 year old Carrot - Golden Retriever. Carrot was pregnant upon arrival and two of her now fully grown pups will be accompanying her. One male and one female and 2 years of age. All dogs have been neutered,spayed and have been health checked, fully vaccinated and passported. They have only ever been in kennels so will not be house trained and will need lead and general training. What they do have though are wonderful gentle natures but will need homes with people that are equally as gentle with them and prepared to put everything into training and making their lives perfect. They have lived alongside other dogs so will easily make good second dogs.

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed:Yes

Handsome boy Baxter is sadly needing a new home because of his owners ill health. Baxter is excellent in the house and is lovely with visiting friends and family. He loves his food like most Labradors and will thank you for his meal by bringing you a favourite toy. He is a loving and loyal dog to his owners but can we wary of some people when out on walks in built up areas, so owner has mainly walked him in more rural areas. He is not comfortable around long haired dogs and this could be a past memory of being attacked but he has been good with many other dog breeds. Baxter loves a game of ball and really thrives on routine. He is looking for a loving forever home.

Note to adopters:

Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto do not show up in rescue. We do not 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 are 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 do not 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 lifes sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as Lassie, Rin Tin Tin or Toto. So please, please do not 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.
