What LBDR have to say on this

The kennels are at a team members house, the team member is Sharon Farrington the property sits on its own over 6 acres plot, the kennel constructions are wooden and under 6ft in height the enclosures/runs are metal and either heras fencing or kennel run fencing and are 6ft high

The property cannot really be seen from the road and the fields where the kennels back onto farm land

The property is not open to the general public and people can only meet the dogs once they have submitted an application and a successful homecheck has been carried out then they are invited to come and meet the dogs at a specific time and date

The dogs come to this address first so they can receive any medical treatment they may have and to receive their assessments, they need these before we can find a suitable foster or forever home

Our Mission Statement

We are committed to saving and rehoming large breed dogs and large cross breeds, we have a strict non-destruct policy and never put a dog to sleep unless under veterinary advice. We neuter, vaccinate and microchip all dogs before they go to their new homes, the only exceptions to this is for health reasons or if the dog is too young or old. All dogs receive veterinary care and treatment if needed, all dogs are fully assessed, all homes are thoroughly vetted, contracts are signed, follow up checks are carried out and all the dogs have lifetime backup, advice and support are always available. All of the work with the dogs and their day to day care is carried out by volunteers and we run a strict non profit policy, we rely solely on donations and the generosity of others to continue our work.

We believe every dog deserves the chance of a happy life, so please consider giving a rescue dog a forever home, your life will be enriched and your dog will be your faithful friend.

 We are a small rescue for Big Dogs in the UK.

We take in and rehome large breed dogs and large cross breeds, we give them the care and attention they need before finding them a safe and secure forever home.

Dogs can come into rescue for many reasons through no fault of their own, we take in abandoned and unwanted dogs, dogs from pounds that are at risk of being put to sleep and dogs that for a variety of reasons cannot stay with their families any longer. 

The one thing they all have in common is the need of a warm, safe, loving home and a family of their own.

The Prayer Of A Stray

Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain.
And dear God I pray as I run in the rain,
that someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cozy bed I can call my own.
My last owner neglected me and chased me away
to rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now, God, I'm tired and hungry and cold.
And I'm afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
while I run in the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad, God, please help me if you can.
For I have just become a "VICTIM OF MAN"!
I'm wormy, Dear God, and I'm ridden with fleas
and all that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me, God, I'll try to be good.
I won't run away and I'll do as I should.
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
cause I'm so afraid, God, that I'm gonna die!
And I've got so much love and devotion to give,
that I should be given a new chance to live.
So, dear God, PLEASE, PLEASE answer my prayer
and send me somebody who WILL really care...
