Labrador rescues

Posted: 09/10/2016 at 20:54

Since I last posted we took in Max, an old and unwanted boy, despite being lovable and friendly. His owners change of circumstances meant they couldnt keep him any longer, He did find a new home a few weeks later..



And then we had Rolo, a lovely young chocolate lab who had been kept kennelled in his garden and ignored. He was an absolute beauty and we really wanted to keep him, but the timing wasn't right for us. Thankfully he found a new home with a family who already had a labrador to keep him company...



Then, the other day we took in Alfie, a 3yr old black lab, His owner no longer wanted him and was about to dump him in the street, but thankfully he was able to be saved. My wife travelled long distance to go and save him. Our circumstances have changed at home and I'm pleased to say that we are able to keep Alfie for ourselves. He's laps up attention and company, and is extremely friendly. He's a little underweight but we will be correcting that...

It can be quite hard, but at least when they go it means they have found a nice home.


We never know how long we will be having them for as we are just a foster home for a labrador rehoming charity, we look after them until a home is found, or until they reach their specified foster home.


My wife is a volunteer for them and I can come home one day and find she's collected a dog at short notice. I can come home another day and find the dog gone as the charity has found it a home. Usually we have a bit of notice though.


Theres a network of volunteers around the country and they help each other out looking after the dogs, and relaying them around the country to a foster home such as ours or to their new home.

He's happy Joyce, believe me.


Well he was happy yesterday when he grabbed my sons teddy from his room and took it on a sprint around the house, and he was definitely happy a few moments ago just before I caught him with his front paws up to the kitchen worktop with his face in my plate of leftover chips.

We are now fostering another unwanted labrador, this one is called Rolo, a 3yr old beauty. We are very tempted to keep this one as we have kind of fallen for him, but he does need a bit of training....
