Dogs Needing a Home
Ozzie - URGENT
We're sending out an SOS to everyone as Ozzie needs a new home desperately as his owner is moving abroad very soon, so we hope our loyal LRK supporters will send out messages to everyone they know via any type of social media they can.
Ozzie is a big cuddly teddy bear who is blind and at 10 years old, he will need a quiet home preferably without children purely because the least amount of obstacles he has to deal with, the better. He has lived with another dog, who died a few months ago and since then he has been fine on his own so wouldn't need to go to a home that already has dogs. When he first meets another dog, he does growl, but then if we were blind and someone bounded up to us, chances are we would do the same! Once he realises the dog isn't a threat, he is ok.

As you can see, Marley makes himself at home. He is a happy dog and would suit a mature family preferably without children as Marley has dodgy knees.
Can be used as a pet or a barometer. Starts groaning on about the weather when rain is coming and tuts at young dogs.
Will make an excellent couch tester and doesn't run away when you want cuddles.
Marley has a luxating patella (no, I don't know either) which means he can't walk far. He has an operation on one patella but not the other, which means short walks only please, maybe just round to the butchers or a pet store if nearby. Lab Rescue would help with the vets fees for the patella although the vet has indicated that the other knee shouldn't be a problem.

Sheba is a lovely girl. She is currently at a doggy health farm getting into shape for her new forever home should she be lucky enough to find one.
She is very friendly, good with other dogs and people. Loves meeting new people and making friends. A lot of life and a lot of live to give.
- Nature: Calm, well behaved

- Age: 10 years
Duke - Rehomed
This is Duke , he is eighteen months old, vaccinated chipped and castrated.
He is good with people and with other dogs. He is well trained and obedient most of the time, however he does have food aggression. He is okay with his own food and gentle when you give him treats, but he will snatch food from the work surfaces, tables, even from your hand - my wife says that sounds like me!!
All joking aside, when he does this, he will growl and will not give the food back. Unfortunately there is no warning when he does this so he would definitely be better in an experienced home and with no children, whilst this learned behaviour is reversed with patient training.
- Nature: Hungry
- Colour: Black
- Age: 18 Months Old
- Micro-chipped & vaccinated, castrated
Forget any preconceptions about Labradors called Marley, i.e. jumping out of cars, wrecking the house, demanding film star red carpet treatment – this Marley is a poppet!
He is 4 years old, has lived with another dog and is good with people. He is vaccinated, chipped and castrated.
However, Marley has fits so we are looking for a quiet home on his own, with no small children as they may find the fits upsetting.
He is on of 1.5 pills a day and the medication means that the fits are minor. Anyone who has owned a dog with epilepsy knows that whilst it can be upsetting to see these occur, once they are over, the dogs are back to their usual selves relatively quickly. We wouldn’t give up on a human with epilepsy, so why do it to a dog?
We have a couple who adopted one of our LRK dogs who has epilepsy and he has been with them for over 6 years now and they would be happy to give advice/guidance from their perspective if this helps. LRK would also be prepared to assist with medication costs if this was an issue.
