Benjamin was rescued in Cyprus and is currently living in Wellington. Through no fault of his own he needs to find a new forever home. Here is a little about him:
Ben is the funniest dog and loves to lie on his back so that his jowls flop over his face. He is calm and placid, will be your shadow but is great to be left alone. Ben is cuddly and is a perfect lap dog (despite his size he finds a way). He likes to sleep in your bed with you - until you move, then he goes by choice to his own bed and if you like to sleep in late he will sleep with you!
He LOVES off the lead walks and smells. Being a Labrador, he especially loves water. His favourite things are swimming and sunbathing.
Learning new tricks is not Ben’s strongest point, so he can’t give his paw, but he sits very nicely and will give you lots of wags to say please!
Ben is simply a goofy lump of a Labrador. He loves his food and may snatch when offered a treat.
Ben loves other dogs and has spent an awful lot of time around them. He does get excited and barks when he sees one and can’t get to it i.e. when he’s on a lead, it is frustration as he is eager to meet and have fun.
Ben adores people but hasn’t spent an awful lot of time around children as there are none in his current home, but when he has met them he has been as good as gold.
He will chase cats and other small furries but that is most likely due to lack of exposure as there are no other pets in his current home.
Ben is housetrained and sleeps well through the night. He likes his crate to sleep in with an open door. He has never had to be left in a crate as he is good when left alone.
Ben is hoping for a home where he can enjoy long walks off the lead, where he is allowed to play in rivers and to get his paws muddy! and a person who loves the affection Ben wants to give.
Ben has never mastered giving the paw and his recall could be perfected (it’s pretty good now but he just loves to go and see other dogs!)
If you can give him a chance of a loving home with a safe and secure garden to play in, please contact us.
He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Minimum adoption donation of £300 applies.
ADOPTIONS SUBJECT TO HOME CHECK.
Post adoption support is available from our charity.
D.O.G. Rescue Cyprus must be informed at any time of a change in circumstances and our dog returned to one of our volunteers where required. Benjamin must never be handed over to any UK Rescue or sold or adopted on without our knowledge. We always accept the return of our dogs and will endeavour to rehome them accordingly.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a dog.
Carry out the research so you have the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a dog is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the breeder's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The breeder should allow you to personally see the puppies with the puppies' mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the breeder and seen the puppy, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the puppy. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal, you must have signed a well-defined contract.
The breeder should only release the puppies when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the puppy from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.

Is your dog shedding hair in winter? In most cases, a dog heavily sheds hair only before or after the winter season kicks in as a form of preparation for the cold weather. The main reason for dog shedding is due to hormonal changes as well as the presence of sunlight.

Cancer in dogs is prevalent; it is the leading reason for non-accidental death in canines. In fact, 50 per cent of pets reaching 8–10 years of age and beyond are likely to develop any types of cancer. This is considered true regardless of the dog breed or mixed breed.

A recent nationwide survey revealed that the Labrador Retriever is Britain’s top dog. This comes as no surprise since the Lab has topped dog registrations in the UK for many years now. But polls and canine registrations aside, why do many love this dog breed?
