PMd Choccypaws for you to find out. :D

There is also Taz that K9 Search UK gave you a link to: http://www.k9searchuk.com/2408%20taz.jpg

2 year old Sunny with South East Dog Rescue: http://www.sedogrescue.co.uk/?sunny,23

There is Maisie, who is female and a little bit older at 8, but she's such a lovely girl I thought I should show her off just in case :D : viewtopic.php?f=71&t=2309 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=2309)

Mali (I can double check with Mikayla how old she is): viewtopic.php?f=71&t=2264 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=2264)


Valgrays Border Collie rescue is probably one of the closest BC rescues to you: http://valgraysbcrescue.webs.com/newdogs.htm

I will keep my ear out just in case I hear of any others near you. :)

everyone is being so helpful,thank you :) i`m sure we will find right one soon.
i`ve been saying aaahhhh at all pictures,they all deserve loving homes.
i wouldn`t mind an older dog but hubbie wants one a bit younger ,we usually have our dogs for about 12-18 years so an older one would probably only last a few years and then we would have to start looking again. this will probably be our last dog as we are getting older too.

Sylvia, I've also been in touch with Janet from Labrador Rescue South East and Central. They do have dogs available that might be suitable but if you drop her an e-mail she can get back to you and let you know a bit more. The website is www.loveyourlabrador.co.uk (http://www.loveyourlabrador.co.uk) and her email is: [email protected]

There are so many lovely dogs looking for homes I'm sure you wont have an easy decision on your hands! :DD

There are also a couple of collies at NCAR.

2nd September 2009, 04:42 PM
They are looking in the South East area of England. I think North Wales would be too far :)

2nd September 2009, 04:44 PM
Missed that sorry :duh:

2nd September 2009, 05:15 PM
was going to ask where ncr was but you`ve answered it. yes a bit far although they seem to have good selection.
have been in touch with lab rescue and downloaded form.
going to have a trip out tomorrow to nearest dog trust and possibly raystede, their websites always seem to stay the same though. :roll:

2nd September 2009, 05:19 PM
I think it's difficult sometimes to find the time to update them. Good luck though. Let us know how you get on! :D

Taz is around 3 years, he wont be at Raystede until late afternoon.

Good luck!

3rd September 2009, 10:55 AM
decided not to go to dogs trust,phoned them instead to save petrol!
they have one that sounds perfect but because our grandchildren visit occasionally we can`t have him :huh:
going to phone raystede too but if dogs aren`t arriving till late afternoon be too late today!

3rd September 2009, 11:04 AM
That's such a shame.

Good luck then tomorrow at Raystede! :cross:

4th September 2009, 02:49 PM
Hi Sylvia! :waving: How's the search going? :D

5th September 2009, 06:12 PM
didn`t think it would be this difficult :roll:
loads of staffs :huh:
thought we`d found young dog with rspca but because of visiting g/children, it might nip,my husband says i shouldn`t have mentioned them as they don`t visit very often!
getting very frustrated with rescue centres,i know they probably have dogs interests at heart but it sometimes seems they don`t want to give them up!
thought we`d struck lucky today when a friend rang me about a dog needing a home,but it turned out to be a big strong dog that was mostly gsd, lovely dog but too much for us to cope with. still got to see william he`s going to available to see next week.
at this rate we might end up buying a puppy!

5th September 2009, 06:45 PM
Nooo don't buy a puppy! :nono: Your perfect rescue dog is out there on it's way to you :biggrin:

5th September 2009, 06:47 PM
Take a look at the collie or lab rescues listed here:

viewtopic.php?f=71&t=436 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=436)

Also take a look at www.dogsblog.com (http://www.dogsblog.com)

5th September 2009, 07:02 PM
why are they so far away :roll: maybe we should move :supersmile:

5th September 2009, 07:08 PM
Sylvia - look into animals that are further away then you'd normally go as we can always try to arrange transport for the animal to you - tis what we do :D
The only thing is I would suggest a visit to see the animal before you make your decision. So go look at others - arrange a homecheck and then maybe we can get the dog to you :crossed:

Don't buy a puppy, there is a dog out there for you!

5th September 2009, 07:40 PM
No that is not the way it should be done.

Transport should not be arranged for a dog to go to a new home. Yes a foster home or to rescue from a pound. BUT not from a rescue to a home.

The new owner should always be expected to go meet the dog and take it home wherever the rescue is located.

6th September 2009, 11:56 AM
I see both sides. I don't think it would hurt if we could get someone to help transport you to the rescue and take you back to your home with the dog though if we could find someone that would be willing to do that.

6th September 2009, 06:26 PM
oops, started something there :doh:
bet you`ll all be pleased when we`ve got our dog :supersmile:
battersea aren`t answering their phone today,or not when hubby tried phoning

8th September 2009, 11:47 AM
