    Superb temperament. 9 months old 22 "

    CURRENTLY IN HAMPSHIRE. Paxchi's owner has had to rush off to Spain, and is unable to take him with her. She has a very sick mother. He was being looked after by her son, but he has to go to work full-time. He is a lovely lovable boy. He is neutered and vaccinations will start next week, when he will be ready for his new home. He will be seeing our SLR behaviourist as he has had some bad experiences and now barks at other dogs on the lead. He gets on well with all dogs he knows. Even though this little man is non destructive, he is still a pup. And still growing and exploring life. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details. Or phone 07940 555 574.

  • BRUCIEBOY - GENTLE GIANT. SO LOVING AND FORGIVING- PHOTOS DON'T REFLECT HOW LOVELY HE IS. (APPLICATIONS OPEN) NOT CAT FRIENDLY. < Click here to read this dog's discussion thread

    Superb temperament. 27 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT. Bruce was found abandoned. He has an unrepaired knee injury to the front leg which we have had investigated. It seems to have fused at the bone, but doesn't seem to cause him pain, although we have him on loxicom and also green muscle additives. We have had all his legs x-rayed as he was so weak on the back end. He may have been crated for long periods, giving him muscle wastage. He is not a pretty sight, as he has multiple lesions on his face and body. We can only hazzard a guess at his fate before he was abandoned. Even through all that he must have endured in his life, Brucie has a sweet trusting nature and is starting to play. He is currently fostered with two female Lurchers and 3 children, and is loving it. He is a lovely lovable boy. He is neutered and vaccinations will start next week, when he will be ready for his new home. We want the very best home for his lad as his life must have been hell. We do not rehome to anyone who works more than 4 hours away from the home in any one day. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details. Or phone 07940 555 574 between the hours above.

    Just under 2 years old. 26 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED IN ESSEX. Bertie is the lovely lad being sat on! Bertie is being rehomed through no fault of his own. His relinquisher has had extensive knee surgery and feels that Bertie would not do well with limited walks a day for the forseeable future. Bertie is lovely with the small children of the family and with all people. He loves to chase and have fun with dogs off lead and so his recall can be hit and miss. He does pull on the lead and a head halti is best when walking him. He also barks at oncoming dogs to get to them, so can be lead reactive. His foster dad is working on this. He is a lovable dog. We do not rehome to anyone who works away from the home for more than 4 hours in any one day. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY IN POOLE. DORSET. Stunning Harley has been much loved by his relinquishing owner, and we are going to try to rehome him from his own home to save a lot of heartache. He is currently still with his owner, but it is becoming increasingly urgent that he is rehomed as her circumstances have changed dramatically. He is castrated, vaccinations do need re-starting, but SLR will fund that. We do not rehome to anyone who would work more than four hours outside the home, and Harley is used to someone around most of the time, so a few hours for shopping and socializing. We do not rehome more than 200 miles from our base in Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Superb temperament. 23 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED IN ESSEX. Fred's family have decided to emigrate, but feel that it would not be fair to take Fred with them. They have had him since a pup and really love him. This has not been an easy decision. If you read his thread you will see their thoughts on rehoming Fred, and what a loelyl family dog he is. Do you have room in your heart for Fred for possibly another 6 years? He is neutered and vaccinated, when he will be ready for his new home.
