    Not my household but my parents picked up a rescue dog yesterday - from the RSPCA Brent Knoll branch.

    A 9 month old Poodle Labrador cross. They've named him Harry.

    Apologies for the lack of pictures, I only had my phone on me when I went to meet him and he is far too bouncy to get in a good shot. But once he settles in and has good recall I will get a photo shoot of him.

    He is all black with wavy hair and about the size of a working lab.

    He was from a family with young children who he kept knocking over.

    At least that was what they were told. It's hard to know if your given 100% accurate information. At first they were told he was a year but then only this week they were told he was just 9 months.

    But he does have a fantastic temperament and some very basic obedience so he certainly hasn't come from an abusive home.

    He's gorgeous! Do you know how long he was in the rescue for? I bet it wasn't long with a face like that!

    Not even two weeks. It only took that long because they didn't come out for the home check until Thursday.
