OVERALL - Lottie is a lovely, gentle, pretty girl, who will make someone a wonderful companion.

Our longest resident Lottie is in foster with Auntie Jo in Gloucestershire. Lottie needs a home with another dog, and a quietish environment. Lottie is now living with 5 dogs, 2 cats and 2 older teenagers. It has taken her 3 weeks to now accept the cat (see video).

Lottie doesn't have a bad bone in her body! Considering her awful start in life she has come on hugely. She really is a sweet and gentle dog, who loves to be with you and will make someone a loving companion. She enjoys running around exploring the garden, going for walks, playing with her foster siblings, having food and treats and getting lots of cuddles and tummy rubs. She absolutely loves to snuggle next to us on the sofa and to be invited onto the bed!

We think Lottie is a Corgidor mix - a Corgi /Labrador. She has a long body, lovely sleek black fur with a white stripe on her chest and white markings on three of her paws, soft brown eyes and wonderful large ears which get admired by everyone she meets! She is so unusual and striking people often stop to ask about her.

Lottie was rescued from a kill shelter in Romania and came to a foster home in the UK in October 2017. She took a while to settle into living in a home but has now changed hugely and needs a home of her own.

Lottie can be a little nervous of people she doesn’t know, but is getting more confident all the time and if people are patient and let her come to them she will come forward for a sniff and enjoy having her head and neck stroked. She is very affectionate with the people she knows and likes to cuddle up or sit on your knee.

Lottie has now been lead trained. She does still pull when she is excited to be going somewhere, so needs more work on this. She has good recall and enjoys running around in the fields. When out on walks she will now walk past other dogs without reacting, but she will bark and pull back on the lead if the other dog is too close to her or barks at her. She has never shown any aggression towards any dogs or humans.

Lottie has learnt to ‘sit’, ‘paw’ and is brilliant at ‘wait’. She always sits and waits beautifully while her food is put down, watching you intently for the ‘ok’ which means she can eat! She will happily settle in her bed when we are busy and can be left alone for short periods. She travels very well in the car.

Lottie needs a home with someone who will continue to build up her confidence. She really enjoys the companionship of another dog so we are looking to re-home Lottie with another calm dog. A quiet household would be best for her as she takes time to adapt to new situations.

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

If you want to offer this sweet, affectionate girl a loving home, please fill in our pre-adoption questionnaire at silverpawsrescue.org.

Romanian adoption fees apply – further information is on our FAQ section.

Important Notice from Pets4Homes - Before contacting the seller, you MUST read our pet advice below. NEVER send money for a deposit or pay for a pet online without visiting the advertisers home first to confirm they are genuine.

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 pay for a dog or send money as a deposit without visiting and seeing the dog at its home beforehand. 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. Pets4Homes do not allow the third party sale of puppies. All litters of puppies advertised, MUST have been bred by the advertiser.
  • 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
  • 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 BEFORE taking the dog or puppy home and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
  • 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.
  • 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.
