    GENTLE GIANT. 26 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN BERKSHIRE. Ollie came in via holding kennels so no known history.

    His name was Liam but has since been changed to Ollie as he answers to it. He has come a long way with his foster family, and is now a very settled dog.

    He is currently being fostered with 2 female lurchers and one male Lurcher in Berkshire. An all round lovable dog.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria, and do not rehome to anyone who works outside the home for more than four hours in any one day. We will even knock on neighbour doors to confirm. 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.

    < PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. She is being fostered in Norfolk.

    She has been very loved in her adoptive home, but circumstances have changed for her Adopter, and we have brought her back into foster to rehome. This is very sad for all concerned and particularly for Grace, who was very happy in her family. She is child friendly, and other dog friendly when she get to know them, having accepted several fosters into the home over the last few years. She just wants some love, walks and quiet life.

    She can live with another dog, probably a male is best, but she was living with one female lurcher happily before coming in. Her adoptive sister Lottie is also up for adoption.

    We do not rehome dogs under the age of 2 to anyone who works away from the home. Lottie can be left for up to 4 hours. 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.

    GENTLE GIANT. 26 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. FOSTERED IN ESSEX.

    Boris came into the Rescue through holding kennels, therefore, we have no record of his past.

    He is currently being fostered with 2 female lurchers n Essex. An all round lovable dog.

    Boris will be a big lurcher, probably around 28 to the shoulder when fully grown. He looks like a cross between Borzoi (perhaps some Silkenhound in the background, Grey and Saluki. He is stunning, with a very soft and fluffy coat. That will get longer as he grows up.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria, and do not rehome to anyone who works outside the home for more than four hours in any one day. We will even knock on neighbour doors to confirm. 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.

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING FOSTERED IN KENT. sHE WILL NEED TO BE REHOMED WITH ANOTHER DOG AROUND.

    Lottie was in holding kennels in Kent. She was found as a stray so no known history. She is very child friendly, so must have lived with children, and other dog friendly. She is a little shy when she first meets people, but just reserved.

    She is currently being fostered with a male patterdale cross. We do feel that Lottie will need another dog around for company as she could easily suffer from separation anxiety as she bonds so easily with her carers. It is early days in her assessment, but she is being a good gilie.

    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.

    Approx 16 months. 22 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. CURRENTLY FOSTERED IN DORSET

    This little chap was found wandering, so no history on him. He is a really happy and friendly little man with people, children and all other dogs. Not thought to be cat friendly. At the moment he is all over the place on the lead, but we think everyting in his world is new and he just wants to get to everyone and everything to say Hi.

    Tatty is currently being fostered in Dorset. He is living with another Beddie X male and one female Lurcher, doing really well with house training, and ready for that special home. Tatty could go as an only dog as long as he gets socialization, as Lurchers need their friends.

    We have a strict rehoming criteria with youngsters. We do not rehome to anyone who works away from the home. We do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from base in Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Superb temperament. 24 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. BEING TEMPORARILY FOSTERED IN SURREY.

    Archie was found abandoned. He served his 7 days, but the lady that found him felt a pup was too much for her so our own SLR Vet Aly is temporarily looking after him. We are open to foster offers on this lad with a view to adoption.

    Archie has now been neutered and his vaccinations started.

    He is child friendly and other dog friendly, and as Aly has a cat the cat has put him in his place, so at the moment Cat Scared!!

    He is a lovely lovable boy. 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.

    This little girlie was found wandering , and was so matted had to be shaved. She is only a youngster.

    She is so friendly and other dog friendly. Has met the cat and is fine. It is still early days in her assessment as she only came in last week, but she is proving to be a friendly happy dog.

    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 a lovely lovable boy. Bruce 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.
