Urgent Appeal
For an Experienced Foster or Forever Home


We Urgently Need to find Lexi a foster or forever home


l l l

Age: Approx 1yr old
Gender: Female
Lab or Lab X: Small Labrador X
Lived with cats: N/K
Good with other dogs: Yes

General Information:
Lexi is a VERY frightened little dog. What her start in life in Romania must have been like we just can't begin to imagine, but we do know that she has experienced some very cruel treatment. She is terrified of men and will just about tolerate the company of a gentle female. However, she is good with other dogs but will hide behind them when humans are around. Lexi is currently in a foster home with her sister but needs to be separated now to develop confidence and trust. We are looking for an all female home, that has experience of Romanian or severely traumatised dogs.

Health
Lexi is in good health and is vaccinated and spayed.

Brian

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.

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.
