Libby came into our care after her owner could no longer look after her.

She has settled into home life really easily, her house training was a bit non-existent but she is getting there.

She sleeps in a crate at night with no problems, she travels well in the car, still on a lead so cannot comment about her recall as yet as she is still recovering from being spayed.

Libs as we call her is the sweetest dog, she is very friendly with the other dogs and loves playing with the other little foster dog we have. She is friendly with the bigger dogs but prefers dogs her own size.

So friendly with us

Loved playing out in the sunshine with Betty her foster sister

Such a sweet dog

She has been good with the cat but will chase if he runs in the garden I think she could be trusted with cats but only if they were also dog savvy.

With the cat

She loves her walks in the woods but only walking on a harness and flexi lead at the moment because of recovering from being spayed but fine meeting other dogs, etc.

Out walking

Meeting new dogs on a walk

Libby is a very happy little soul, very friendly but I feel this home living is new to her and would suit an experienced home and she needs another dog or dogs similar size to her so she could play with them.

Loves playing with the other dogs

She is fine being left for a few hours with no problems.

Libby has been spayed, started her vaccinations, chipped, wormed/fleaed.

Starfish Dog Rescue is a small Rescue helping UK dogs established since 2011.

The dogs that find their way to us are those in need of support in a small home-based rescue where the dogs are fostered as our own in our homes, the old, the young and more vulnerable that would not do well with a kennel-based rescue.

We work closely with the dogs assessing them so we know them so well we can give potential owners a complete picture of the dogs and what they need in the form of a forever home, we home our dogs as if they are our own and have a 99.9% success rate in matching dogs and people up we will never compromise so please do not be offended when we say no which is quite often our rescue is about the dogs first and their needs we home them knowing if they could speak it's about their perfect match.

We are a small team of local volunteers who have worked together closely for many years now many of us have worked for larger organisation where sometimes people lose sight of the most important factors and that is the dogs.

All our dogs are neutered, vaccinated, chipped, wormed/fleaed to us that is just the basics, dogs will get everything they need to make sure they lead a healthy happy life before they leave us, if they need surgery for heart problems, treatment for ear infections, dentals for infected teeth to name a few they will get it - we often organise fund raisers to help pay their vet fees from our wonderful supporters.

Each dog is a special precious soul and will always be the centre of what Starfish is - a Rescue that is all about the dogs.
