Nature: A loving, friendly boy
Lived with children: No but would be ok with older children
Lived with cats: No
Good with other dogs: After initial meeting
On the lead: Generally good but pulls if he sees another dog
Recall: Unknown
Good Traveller: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Neutered/Spayed: Yes
Vaccinated: Yes
Reason for rehoming: Change in family circumstances

General Information:Information from his foster home: Hudson is a very friendly and affectionate dog. He likes a lot of attention. He is very good with children, I think because of his size maybe older children as he can be quite intimidating at first to someone smaller. He is a very good dog in the house and can be left without any problems.He doesn’t seem to have had much training and will pull on the lead and bark at other dogs. He has improved but I think he will need more training. He carries a ball on a rope with him which has calmed him down. He is a big, strong dog so will need someone who can cope with that. Work needed: Hudson will need to continue with his training in his new home

Health: Hudson is fed on a hypoallergenic food

Type of home that would suit: A home with the time to spend with this lovely boy.

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.

lll
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 upon 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!
ll
I was really pleased when I was given a home with a couple that said they understood me and would look after me but they clearly didn't undertand me and that sometimes I still get a bit frightened if people get too over familiar with me and when meeting new people I need time to know they are not going to hurt me and let me get used to them before wrapping their arms around me...I just save that for my most trusted friends! Don't get me wrong I just LOVE a cuddle and I love human company. Anyway it didn't work out and I was brought back to the kennels where my BFF's Sue, Roger, Keira and Kelly were waiting to love and cuddle me.
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.

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.
