Beautiful Brian

l
l
l
l
l

Age: Approx 8/9 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador X

Nature: Loves his walks and trusted friends

Lived with children: No

Lived with cats: No

Good with other dogs: No, but this has improved recently and he will generally ignore then unless they bark at him and then he will bark back.

On the lead: Very good on the lead and will sit at the kerb.

Recall: Not let off lead because of other dogs

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Was originally a stray and just not be able to find the right home for this gorgeous boy.

General Information: Brian has been with us for quite a while and is absolutely adored by all our helpers. He is such a character! He loves a treat and once he knows you have them in your pocket...you are his best friend. He is so easy on the lead and just loves his walks. He will sit at the kerb and if another dog is nearby it is easy to distract him with a treat. With his owner he is protective and any visitors coming to the house need to be introduced properly (with treats!) and then he will be fine. In his early life, on the streets and trying to survive, this poor boy has been attacked many times by other dogs. His lip is torn and he has many scars, so his fear of other dogs is quite understandable. We would like to get Brian to the vets for a dental but can't do this until we have a foster or forever home in the Surrey area. We will place Brian outside of Surrey but the owner will need to be prepared to take him to our vet in Surrey for his dental treatment that we will be covering. We need someone with a lot of compassion and love to share with this special boy.

Health: Good, but being in kennels is not helping his joints.

Type of home that would suit: As above.

Baxter

l

l

l

l

l


Age: 6 years old

Gender: Male

Lab or Lab X: Labrador

Nature: Loyal and loving

Lived with children: Yes

Lived with cats: Yes

Good with other dogs: Baxter has lived happily with other dogs in the past but is not good with dogs when out.

On the lead: Very strong but better with a halti

Recall: Work in progress

Good Traveller: Yes

Housetrained: Yes

Neutered/Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Reason for rehoming: Too strong for owner

General Information: Baxter is a loving and loyal boy. Report from his foster home:
He seems happy and is such a good, clean boy in our home. Baxter is very loving, enjoys playing and having fun with our squeaky toys, is quick to settle after a nice walk and is really chilled as you do chores around the house and also when we get ready to go out for a walk. We're working on his recall in the garden and also his reactivity to some dogs when out on our walks. He is still super strong on his lead. He is reactive to people who walk by the car/a cyclist near the car and the occasional stranger we have met on a walk. When we go on our early morning walk around a large field he seems a more relaxed boy, any new walks have made him anxious and he may be uncomfortable going to places where there are likely to be lots of people and or other dogs around, so for example the pub may not be for him at the moment!
Baxter needs a home that is prepared to work with him and continue the training that his foster family are doing.

Health: Good

Type of home that would suit: Baxter would prefer a home in a quieter area.

Hudson

l
l
l

Age: 5 years old
Gender: Male
Lab or Lab X: Labrador
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.

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.
