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.

Brian

l


Age: 8 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Lab X

Nature: Affectionate and a true character!

Lived with children: Teenagers

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: See below

On the lead: Good

Recall: Good

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: May be due now

Reason for rehoming: Change of circumstances

General Information: Brian has spent the past few weeks and is still currently in a foster home where he has really enjoyed being part of the family. Brian is a real character and everyone that gets to really know him, loves him. A couple of years ago he was found on the streets in Romania having to fight for every scrap of food and constantly being attacked as he was then an entire male dog and other males viewed him as a rival. He was taken in by a rescue and received treatment for his many wounds and torn lip and we were then asked if we could help him. Brian had all the necessary jabs and travelled to us. When he arrived he was very shut down but over a short time with us he realised that nothing bad was going to happen to him again and we watched him blossom. He does have fears still and needs a little time with you to know he can totally trust you, then you have a really good friend. Sadly the people that have offered a home for him have not given him the understanding that he needs and Brian has been returned to us. Jayne who is fostering him will be able to tell you all about Brian and how he has been whilst with her family and what you will need to understand about his needs and fears. Brian has just had a dental and had to have quite a lot of his teeth removed and has also had his rather large dew claws removed and is now in good health. Because of his bad start Brian is nervous of other dogs. He doesn't look for trouble but doesn't like coming over to him. He is often walked with another dog but with the other dog keeping a "social distance".


Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: As above

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.
