Dogs Needing a Home
Luna - Rehomed
Luna is 11 months old and a lovely lady to boot.
Being used to mainly adults, Luna probably would struggle in a family home with young children. She has a few aggression issues, particularly food, for which LRK is investigating, so an experienced home would be best and owners who can spare the time to work with Luna and be prepared to give extra training would be best.
- Nature: Lovely, good with other dogs

Paddy - Rehomed
Paddy the juvenile delinquent.
Is exactly how Paddy came described to me, and it is easy to understand why. Paddy is 18 months old and well into the door slamming stage of his teenage years.
But difficult to get angry at such a wonderful friendly young dog. He is solidly built and you will know it if he charges into you at speed.
Needs training and a little introduction on social niceties, such as how to behave in public and when to tidy his room.
Hasn't been with children and is still very boisterous so probably not suited to a young family. Mouths, and jumps up, so a bit of patience will be essential. Doesn't like getting into cars but is perfectly relaxed once in.
I would describe Paddy as 'a work in progress'. Will make someone a lovely pet and companion.
- Nature: Enthusiastic
- Colour: Golden
- Age: 18 months
- Micro-chipped & vaccinated, not castrated
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
Marley - Rehomed
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.
- Nature: Wonderful
