Rehoming advice and guidance

Our role is to find the right new home for Labradors whose owners can longer keep them for whatever reason and to give you peace of Calendar 16 - Solo hosemind we will personally always check every potential home and ensure that it will be a kind and loving environment for any rescued dog. We check every Labrador thoroughly before rescue and re-homing to be sure that the dog and the new home are right for each other. You should NEVER accept a dog from anyone who doesn't do this as any dog you are offered you may not know its history, health or temperament

We never use outsiders from dog forums or other agencies to check any adopter, assess any dog or rehome a dog for us because we need to establish the right relationship and maintain follow-up. We will stay in touch with you and give you any help or advice and there is always someone available to help with any problems that may arise.

We never turn away a Labrador because of age or infirmity or with a health problem. We will home our dogs with children provided we know the full history of the dog in question and that it is already used to children of your age group.

Remember the golden rule never buy over the internet as most of these puppies come from puppy farms as far away as Eastern Europe and they can be illegally imported. Please seek advice from us first before you make a purchase. We want you to have the right dog and not a heartache or a very large vet bill.


If you need to rehome your Labrador then please contact us first rather than trying to sell your dog through the internet.  See our story 'DIY Disaster' in which one family tell of  the horrendous time they went through trying to rehome their dog.

Don't worry if you do not reside in an area we cover - just contact us  using the email and we can put you on to your nearest  accredited Labrador Rescue. You will have peace of mind knowing what has become of your family pet.
