    Gorgeous. 24 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY IN EPSOM DOWNS. WOULD BE BEST AS AN ONLY DOG. Chance was taken on a few year's ago by his departed Owner. He is being looked after by a family friend at the moment in the home, but this is a temporary measure. Chance has had little exercise for a good year as his owner has been so unwell being passing away, but has had a lot of cupboard love. With some TLC, and some good walks and off-lead fun Chance will slim down into the whippety boy he once was. He has been so loved, and at the moment his whole world has fallen apart. Please read his story, and see if you can find a place in your heart and your home for him. We are going to try to rehome him from his own home to save a lot of heartache. We do not rehome more than 200 miles from our base in Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We do not rehome to anyone who works outside the home for more than 4 hours in any one day. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Happy and loving. 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN POOLE. DORSET.CHARLIE NEEDS ANOTHER DOG TO LIVE WITH OR DAILY RUNS WITH. Charlie came out of holding kennels, so absolutely no known history on this lad. He is a beautiful boy who loves to play. He loves peoople of all sizes and dogs of all sizes. Fostered with one male lurcher and one female. He has now been neutered ready for his new home. Charlie is house-trained. And regularly goes off lead for a blast with friends. We think Charley would be happier rehomed with another dog in the home. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who works out of the home full time. I'm afraid due to past experiences, 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.

    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.

    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.

    Just under 2 years old. 26 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED IN ESSEX. 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, but when introduced he is fine. 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.
