Kaleb - A very special appeal

for one cheeky little Stafford.
NOW IN A FOSTER HOME

Kaleb has spent nearly two years of his life in kennels. Kaleb in now in a foster home with a foster lady mum named Mirelle. Kaleb is not without his problems and needs a experienced home used to dogs that prefer life on their terms. He is very loving and loves a belly rub however can be difficult if under pressure and worried.

Kaleb has come on leaps and bounds in foster and now has extra long walks and also a walker behaviourist working with him. He has made excellent progress however still needs a very experienced human.

Please call to discuss in more details. A Yorkshire home is needed so we can offer hands on help locally if needed.

Urgent appeal for gorgeous Axel - Very very special appeal

Axel is diagnosed with Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria or L-2-HGA. This is a recessive disorder that affects the central nervous system of the dog. The disease is more common is Staffords.

 

Symptoms of the disease include some or all of the following, epileptic seizures, "wobbly" gait, tremors, muscle stiffness as a result of exercise or excitement. Axel has struggled since coming into our care in July with co-ordination of his legs after walking and excitement. There is no cure so we are now making plans to manage Axels condition in many ways.

Axel is adorable. He is super loving and  a special dog very deserving of a life of love and luxuries and serious home comforts.

CAN YOU FOSTER. SUPPORT IS GIVEN.

Dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs

Good Life Dog Rescue is a small charity in Yorkshire. We are dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs. We work tirelessly with limited funds to help dogs in need at local stray kennels. We are very hands on and dedicated in helping the dogs that have no voice and visit the stray kennels every week. Some of our rescue dogs have suffered neglect, abuse and have endured a difficult start in life at the hands of a human. We have many that need urgent medical care.

Our vet and kennelling bills are huge every month and every effort is made to raise funds to support the dogs in our care. Every penny goes towards the care of the dogs. We have no staff and work entirely with few volunteers. Our dedication and passion is what keeps us going.

 

Our aim is to provide essential help for the dogs and through assessments maintain an accurate match of our dog with any potential adopter. All our dogs receive veterinary care, health checks, full vaccinations and neutering as part of our adoption procedure. Essential care and a dedication to the welfare of each dog is met until a perfect human and hound match is found. Home checks and vet references from owners previous pets veterinary practices are needed if possible prior adoption.

As a small rescue support is vitally important to us. With limited help we rely on donations and fundraising events. Any help is appreciated by donators. Please contact us for more details about the work we do and how you can help us. We are always grateful for support however small.

ADOPTION PROCESS

We work extremely hard to ensure that adopters are matched well with the rescue dogs in our care. Many factors have to be considered for each individual dogs needs. Lifestyle, working hours and whether you have a family are all crucial in matching our homeless hounds with humans. Our aim is to match every dog with the right human and the perfect home environment.

Please visit our "How to Adopt" on our News page. More information and details about how to adopt a rescue dog are available to read prior to filling in an application.  Due to a huge increase in people wanting to adopted dogs your patience is very much appreciated.
