Full Advert Details

Lovely Luna is a Lab mix who is now in foster with Auntie Vicky in Kent. She was previously in a private shelter in Romania and has had a difficult life so far.

Luna is lead trained and walks perfectly by Vicky's side. She walks past lots of other people and dogs on lead and although she doesn't want to play with them and would rather stand with her human, is getting used to being around more people and dogs.
She is currently living with 4 other dogs peacefully. She would be fine with other calm dogs but would also be fine as an only dog if her owner was willing to spend lots of time with her, as if you let her she will take herself off and sleep in her bed in the corner.

Luna has come such a long way from the extremely traumatised dog she was when she arrived in August. She couldn't be touched, had never been walked and was very skinny.

She can now be stroked all over by the people she trusts, loves trotting along on her twice daily walks and loves her food! She gets so excited at meal times and wags her tail and wiggles her bottom!

She needs an understanding and experienced dog owner to continue her trust building and socialisation but it will be so worthwhile and rewarding. She is a gorgeous dog who can and will trust humans as she's already made such big strides.

She deserves the best home after the abuse she's suffered. Someone who is understanding of the life she's had, who can take her forward to lead a happy and fulfilled life.

Poor Luna was pregnant with puppies and very close to when the babies were due when an unkind person decided it would be best to abort the puppies. Luna, obviously is traumatised by this experience.

But luckily for Luna, she was rescued by Carmen in Romania and now is a changed dog from the one who arrived 3 months ago.

Luna is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and deflead and has a passport.

If you would Ike to offer lovely Luna a great home please fill in the pre-adoption questionnaire at www.silverpawsrescue.org

More information can be found on the FAQ section on our website.

Puppy/Dog Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Labrador Retriever. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a dog or puppy from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list. If you have any concerns, report them to us.


  • Do your research first
    Getting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog. You can read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners. Also read our Labrador Retriever Dog breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit to be paid online without visiting the dog at their home, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any dog. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.

    Pets4Homes do not verify that all advertisers are genuine, so you must make sure you visit the advertiser at their home to confirm yourself. If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses why you cannot see the puppies mum, please walk away and report them to us
  • Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?
    Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their puppies longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age puppies should be before leaving their mothers
  • Check the Health of the Puppy or Dog
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the puppy has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Is the puppy or dog up to date with their vaccinations?
    Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Older Dogs require booster vaccinations occasionally as recommended by their Vet. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. Puppies should have at least had their first set of vaccinations before they leave. If the seller has not started the puppies vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the puppies been treated for worms and fleas?
    Puppies should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Is the puppy/dog Microchipped ?
    From April 6th 2016 it will be required by law that all dog over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keepers details registered against them are kept up to date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have their details registered on the microchip database first. Please check to make sure you receive the microchip documentation with chip number and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
  • Ask questions about puppies mother
    Ask how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Ask about her temperament. The advertiser should want to tell you all about the puppies mother.
  • Is the dog/puppy registered with the kennel club?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct kennel club documents BEFORE you decide to take the dog home. It may also be worth phoning the kennel club to check the information provided is correct.
  • Have the puppies been socialised ?
    Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Puppies that haven't been raised in a home environment may develop behavioural issues, have temperamental problems, be difficult to housetrain and find adjusting to family life hard.

Silver Paws Dog Rescue is a non profit organisation established in 2016 by Jo Goodman and Natasha Tabani. We work with Romanian and Spanish dogs to help bring them across to better lives in the UK. Some are already in foster the UK; some are still waiting for foster homes: if you would like to foster a dog please do get in touch. We have both worked in dog rescue for a while now and we decided to set up our own to help even more dogs, particularly the ones who need it most. We see daily the terrible traumas that dogs have to suffer, the cruel way the dogs are treated in both Romania and Spain. At the moment we have a scheme where we take out dogs who are on death row in the pounds with only a few days to live and we prepare them to come over to the UK to find foster homes. Please get in touch if you would like to help with this, either by donating or fostering. You can sponsor a dog or offer foster and save their life. We have chosen to help a few select rescuers rehome their dogs. We work closely with these small groups and trust them to properly look after and prepare the dogs. We also work closely with transporters who deliver the dogs safely to the UK.
