Oct 16, 2009 at 16:41 Julie Coles No E-Mail Address Given Its now a year since we adopted Luke, and how quickly it has gone it seems like we have always had him. He has had a wonderful summer in the Lake District with lots of lovely woodland walks and playing in the sea at Walney Island. He is a lovely chap and would recommend Labrador Welfare to anyone wanting to adopt.
Oct 02, 2009 at 14:30 Rebecca Holden ( I just wanted to say a massive thanks to June and Sue who are both fantastic! We collected Bonny a week ago and she has settled so well. June matched us with an absolutely perfect dog who has quickly become a very big part of our family. June has rang regularly to make sure everything is ok, the support has been great.  Thank you again for everything so far
Sep 28, 2009 at 15:29 PHIL MUSSON ( About 9 and a half years ago you kindly found me a Labrador puppy Simba about 8 months old, I collected him from his owners at Whixley near York, sadly this weekend he became very ill, the vet thinks he most likely picked up something with Poison in it, he had to be put down this afternoon, he was a great dog and will be sadly misseed. At present we feel it best not to replace him, when we do I will be back in touch. Keep up the good work.
Sep 23, 2009 at 16:01 mark harling ( thank you for trying your best in finding us a companion......

Weather great today, surroundings fab, cute dogs and lovely company. Thanks again to June and the team. Hoping sponsorship money helps the charity.
Sep 10, 2009 at 07:50 Heather McGowan ( We adopted Jack just before christmas 2008. He's such a lovable dog with no malice in him whatsoever. Unfortunatley this year he kept losing hair, so we took him to the vet only to discover he suffers from many allergies. Hopefully on a beef and dairy free diet he might start to look like a black labrador again. We just love him to bits. xx
Aug 27, 2009 at 15:11 Ann Brown No E-Mail Address Given Oscar (adopted 2005) and I did the Sheffield Round Walk today. Well worth it though Oscar is now fast asleep in his basket!

Jun 22, 2009 at 09:20 Natalie Lo ( Myself and my family adopted Buster a few months ago and couldn't be happier with the dog you chose for us. He is a brilliant addition to the family and has fitted in really well, it feels like we've always had him. He loves walks and dispite being told he was water phoebic I think it is safe to say he isn't wherever there's a puddle or water nearby Bust will find it. Non of us would e without him so I would like to say thank you from me and the family for giving us a lovely dog to love and take care of.  The Lo's
Jun 21, 2009 at 05:47 Jane Wright ( We adopted Elvis in March, we renamed him Morgan. When we first got him he was still quite wild, he pulled on the lead and went for other dogs. We have had one to one training and have had him castrated. He is much better now and walks on a loose lead and generally is well behaved. He is such a lovely dog. Labrador welfare really look after you when you adopt, we received regular phone calls to make sure he was settling in.  In just a couple of months we have worked hard and now have a stable happy dog. Thanks to all at labrador welfare.
Jun 15, 2009 at 10:47 Katie Hibbert ( Just a quick update on Diesel. We adopted him in July 2008. After a very rocky start he’s now settled in very well. He is such a pleasure to have in the house although he still has a naughty side (like jumping in to a cannel so my partner had to fish him out along with some very kind passers bye). He has made friends at doggie day camp and enjoys many trips to the beach. We have just booked a dog friendly holiday to August; this will be his first holiday. We plan to make it to the open day on July 27th at the kennels.  Thank you for all your hard work and help with settling diesel into his new home. We look forward to meeting everyone on the 27th.  Kate Mike and Diesel

He is the most calm relaxing dog you could ever wish to meet with a wonderful temperament, he loves playing with any dog but adores playing with other labs.So glad we adopted him. Thanks to June and all at Labrador Welfare

May 10, 2009 at 19:10 Helen & John ( We just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to adopt Bruno - we had 9 1/2 wonderful years with him.  We adopted Bruno through Labrador Welfare when he was about 4 years old - he was a bit of a mess when we took him in - holes in his ears, bald patches, sensitive mouth, early stages of arthritis, to mention but a few things.  We brought Bruno with us to Canada when we emigrated and he loved it (not the flight so much) but Canada and the wide open country!  In June 2006 he had emergency surgery for a tumour the size of a rugby ball in his spleen. We were devastated, it all happened so quick and we thought we were going to lose him on the operating table. The fantastic work of our vet and all her staff pulled together and saved his life. They predicted about 3 - 6 months, however, we watched him plod along for 18 months after his surgery.  At about 14 years of age he could go on no longer and we couldn't bear to watch his pain and misery and asked our vet to put him to sleep on January 12th 2008.  RIP Bruno - you gave us so much joy and happy memories.  Thanks again June and Labrador Welfare for allowing us to have Bruno in our lives.  Keep up the fantastic work!  Helen & John 
May 01, 2009 at 08:05 Jayne Fox ( We have had Eddie for a year now and cant imagine life without him, he is a gentle giant loved by everyone who knows him. He is perfect in every way and we would not be without him, thanks June and everybody for letting us give him a home.
Apr 26, 2009 at 14:38 Tracy E Ward ( In memory of Bess and Jet both adopted by Labrador Welfare and brought much love.laughter and joy. Thank you all for the wonderful work that you do.
Apr 23, 2009 at 09:32 Lorraine Gray ( Having just read the wonderful,funny and touching book -- Marley & me by John Grogan, i now look upon our dog with so much more love and respect ,(i have this feeling every time i look at him )because even with his few little quirks, we are very fortunate to be belong to our incredible large smelly dribbling eating machine , with much love, forever parents Lorraine & Ashley. Thank You Again for matching us so perfectly.  A Quote from the book: "A DOG HAS NO USE FOR FANCY CARS OR BIG HOMES OR DESIGNER CLOTHES.  STATUS SYMBOLS MEAN NOTHING TO HIM.  A WATERLOGGED STICK WILL DO JUST FINE. A DOG JUDGES OTHERS NOT BY THEIR COLOUR OR CREED OR CLASS.  BUT BY WHO THEY ARE INSIDE.  A DOG DOESN'T CARE IF YOU ARE RICH OR POOR,EDUCATED OR ILLITERATE, CLEVER OR DULL GIVE HIM YOUR HEART AND HE WILL GIVE YOU HIS".
Apr 22, 2009 at 13:52 Julie Hill ( Update on Tyler.  We have had Tyler now for 6 months and she really is one of the family. Not a day goes by where she does not have us all in stitches with her antics.  Tyler has been to the vets and we have been told she has a heart murmur but it should not be too much of a problem. I can tell you it certainly does not stop her running at full pelt when we go out!  Thanks again to Labrador welfare. Keep up the good work.
Apr 15, 2009 at 13:31 J Coles ( We have had Luke for six months now and he is an absolute treasure, can't remember what life was like without him, he is a special member of our family.

Apr 13, 2009 at 17:36 Derick Warriner ( i rescuded Max 9 years ago he is now 10 with an enlarged heart On tablets for that A wonderful boy will never part with him
Mar 24, 2009 at 10:16 Lucie  ( I have a 9 month old male black lab who we all love to bits. This is a lovely website and all the people at the Labrador Welfare are wonderful for giving up so much time and energy into caring for these wonderful dogs. If only people realised that taking on a lab (or any dog) is a 24hour a day 7 day a week commitment then perhaps so many wouldn't neet rehoming. My husband only said the other day that its just as hard to raise a dog as it is a child (we have both).  Good luck for the future and i look forward to the event at Rainbow kennels later in the year.
Mar 19, 2009 at 18:29 Jack No E-Mail Address Given There are certain people out there going around trying to act like qualified vets, carrying out scans and blood tests and even going as far as artificially inseminating dogs and telling people that they are qualified when there not. Yes this sounds very worrying! Im sure that many people will have been and still are being taken in by them! Iam one such unfortunate person that has been taken in and led to believe that iam having 5 pups and that 5 heart beats had even been picked up even days before the pups arrived and I ended up with one puppy. This has happened on a couple of occasions and has now led me to belive that the information being given is completely false and looks to be made up! I have heard similar stories to mine from other people and have even been told that qualified vets have heard of and are totally unhappy with the way people like this are trying to take away their business especially when they have trained for many years and graduated to become a vet! This is a warning to people that are thinking of using someone to attend to their dog other than a qualified vet to be very careful because if you are taken in by someone like this it could cause your dog more harm than good and lead you to having to take your beloved dog to the vets in the end! My message to everyone is if there is any problem with your dog take it to a qualified vet and save yourself the upset, expense and hassle of letting some vet wanna be attend to your dog. I hope I have saved people from thinking otherwise. These people are taking the mickey out of professional qualified vets and their false practices should be brought to an end! Please let me know your view on this thankyou.. 
Mar 08, 2009 at 06:09 Bernardine ( Hello,I have fostered Jilly a black lab she is 15 yrs old I have had her 3 yrs she is the nicest dog I have ever had.Even though she needs a lot of medication and is totally deaf(hand signals and flashing torches!)she is so very willing.I can take her anywhere ,on the bus ,to work,she just lays and waits for me.I am dreading the day when she goes to the "doggy heaven"and I dont think I willget another as good as her I will no doubt try.God Bless the Lab. Welfare!
Feb 24, 2009 at 19:11 tracy rutherford ( hello everyone at labrador welfare . it has taken some time to write to you and let you know how scooby,(now ruby) is doing and i only have good words and lots of happy doggy days to tell you about. she has turned out to be a wonderfull and well mannered lady. she gets un really well with our older lab , she has given him a new lease of life !!! she even loves our two cats ,although she still thinks that chasing them is fun, she never hurts them just licks them like puppies. she loves her walks in the woods and on the beach,im so pleased she came to live with us. she can spend the rest of her doggy days with us,we love her very much. she has made lots of new friends and loves to meet up with them every day to run and chase her ball, we wouldnt be without her. 
Feb 12, 2009 at 09:09 Mo Long ( What a wonderful group of people you all are at Lab Welfare. To do such fantastic work to rehome my favourite breed. I love to see the photos of all the rehomed dogs. Wish I lived nearer to help out but Bristol is a little too far.
Feb 01, 2009 at 13:05 Helen Pearson ( Update on Errol.  Bit of a tottering time of late. The Metacam has kicked in and he still enjoys the daily walks in the park. He had a spell over Xmas of not eating much but he seemed to have come round from this. Two weeks ago he had 2 fits one after the other we kept a close eye on him and noticed that he seemed to have a temperature. We had a visit to the vets and after a thorough examination this was confirmed. He has also lost some weight so we need to keep an eye on that. Things are looking better appetite returned and antibiotics done the trick.Fingers crossed. 
Jan 19, 2009 at 13:09 Lorraine Gray ( Update on Rocky: We have had our black lab for 14 months .Rocky is the most fantastic dog , he is clean ,well mannered and behaved, each one of us have their own special bond with him , but he is a daddys boy ! and lazy slob with the girls.Rocky isnt very good around other dogs , but has learnt that he needs SIT when he sees one, most times he manages this !! We feel we have a full understanding of his needs and we believe that by placing, Rocky with us June provided Rocky with the home environment he deserves and our family with a fantastic pet. We love him very much and look forward to many years with him.  Thanks June
