Clever Chloe is looking for her new five star home.
She is a 4 year old (5 in July this year) chocolate Labrador, she is neutered and microchipped.
Chloe has been known to the rescue for a number of years and originally came in after the owner passed away, not before setting some bad memories for poor Chloe. She was rehomed and sadly had to be returned due to Chloe’s behaviour. Chloe was biting her owner and then their other dog out of no where with no logical reason. Upon investigation via a CT scan we discovered that Chloe had incredibly painful elbows with little fractures and cracks where the protective tissue and fluid had worn away and left no protection on both joints! She underwent an operation to add fluid into the elbows to increase the movability and decrease the friction between the bones. She has since been a much happier girl with a new lease of life and can walk so much better on her relieved elbows. She is undergoing a diet to help reduce the stress on all her joints and has supplements added to her food to help maintain them too.
So after all that Chloe is looking for a new home. She is an energetic lass with her heart set on tennis balls on walks, in the home, at the vets, in the garden... you name it she’ll happily play fetch wherever, whenever. She is good on lead but can be pulley at times. Her exercise needs to be monitored and mobility checked to ensure she does not end up with the same painful issues as before which it took our special McTimmony vet to actually pick up on. She knows her basic training, is house trained and crate trained. Chloe can live with other well mannered dog and has lives happily with cats previously however cannot be rehomed with children under 12 years. She can be left alone for periods of time and loves a kong to keep her busy. Chloe loves fuss and will rotate between sitting in between peoples legs at the rescue so that everyone may fuss her. She is a fabulous dog who travels well, adapts to new situations and people so just needs another chance to settle and be loved again.

If you have another dog, first time owners or experienced, age and number of children, do you have cats, wanted activity requirements, how long the dog will be left alone every day, what size, age or gender you would prefer etc. Just let us know what your lifestyle is and we will tell you which dogs may be suited to you.
. Next we will arrange a day and time for you to come to the rescue and meet the dog/s that you are suited to. This is a time for you to ask us as many questions as you wish and for us and the dog to get to know you as well.
. If there are many people interested in a dog then it is NOT first come first served. We will meet as many people as possible and then choose which would be best for the dog so please do not be disheartened if this is the situation.
. After a meet up with Jan at the rescue and if you decide that you would like to adopt and Jan agrees then you will arrange a day for Jan to come round for a home check/ deliver the dog to you. You don't need to decide on the day and can of course have a think about it as it's not a decision to rush.
. On the day you have arranged the dog will be transported to you by Jan who will stay and settle them in for an hour also while doing a quick home check.
. The adoption fee is £200-250 depending on the dog as this helps us to cover cover the cost of spaying/castration, food, equipment, fuel, training, vet visits, bedding, etc.
. Your new pal will come with a suitable harness, halti lead, collar, goodie bag and a big bag of dog food for no extra cost!
. Ongoing support is always provided if needed. Please give us a call should you have any issues at all and we shall advise you.
. If at any time the dog cannot be kept they MUST be returned to the rescue. We offer lifetime back up and will always take our dogs back whether it’s been 3 days or 13 years.
. All of our dogs are neutered, vet checked and microchipped. Dogs under 14 months will need to be briefly returned to be neutered once they are old enough
