Likes and dislikes: Timmy is a sensitive soul who has really come on leaps and bounds during his time at the Rehoming Centre. He is nervous around strangers but enjoys his daily routine of meeting new people to develop his confidence and he loves clicker training. A run in the field with his doggie friends is always welcomed, followed by an afternoon doze with his kennel mate.

Type of home needed: Timmy seeks an adult home with experience of training and rehabilitation. Someone who can dedicate time to his on-going socialisation and development. In the right home he will continue to flourish and achieve his true potential.

Cleo came over from Ireland and very little was know about her. She is a high energy dog and is looking for a new owner with just as much get up and go. The down side to this energy is that when she becomes excited she starts to mouth. This is a fixable problem as she has just never been corrected for this behaviour. Because of this we feel she would be better suited to someone where there are no young children around.

Our volunteer took Cleo for a trip to the beach, she loved playing in the sea and chasing and retrieving a plastic bottle from the water. She gave mixed signals when she met other dogs, and dog socialising will need to be worked on in her new home. Cleo is a really loving girl with people and just wants affection. She has a great nose and would love to do some tracking, hill walking or even agility where she can use up her energy.

When our volunteer took Cleo out she loved the car, very settled and quiet. She was also fine in the busy town and walked well on the lead.

Have you got the same amount of energy that Cleo has to be her new owner? You will have a great companion if you do.

Meet the handsome long haired lad Billy.

Originally a stray we estimate Billy to be around 3 yrs old and a stunning handsome lad he is.

However don’t let the good looks fool you; he has a wicked sense of humour and his whole mission in life is to have fun. He will need to go into a home where someone will be firm but kind and show him the boundaries.

Billy could be homed with older, sensible dog-friendly children.

It would also be best were he an only dog, so he can get the time and training he deserves. He is neutered vaccs chipped and would really love to be in a home before Santa comes.

Billy is a large dog.

Otto has been with us in kennels for some time with no sign of a home pending. We have been trying to find him a home for him after his elderly owner could not look after him any more.

Otto is a 7 year old German Shepherd/Malamute Cross, castrated with up to date vaccinations.

Otto is a nice dog who loves to play and wants individual attention. He would be a great asset for someone willing to give him a home. His reaction to other dogs is mixed as he is a bit temperamental; therefore, Otto’s ideal home would be where he is the sole animal.

He is walked regularly by one of our volunteers and walks well on a lead. The kennel staff all love him and he walks past most dogs without a fuss, despite the noise and reaction of others.

Otto requires an adult only home as he has no children experience. He is not good with cats. New owners would have to be experienced dog owners.

Otto has an independent nature, but loves going for a walk.

A home visit from a volunteer from Second Chances, GSR must be completed prior to meeting Otto.

If you think you can help, either to adopt or are prepared to foster Otto, please contact Paul from Second Chances German Shepherd Rescue on:-

Flora is aprox 1 yr to 18 months, a gorgeous lurcher with the most amazing expressive ears! She has been spayed and microchipped sinced coming to KWK9 and is up to date with her vaccinations etc. Flora would do best in a quieter home without too much comings and goings initially so that she has time to bond with her new owner and become secure before having to face the big world that is out there! She can be a bit timid of men in particuliar initially but with patience and gentle handling we are sure she will overcome this. She is very loyal to whoever is caring for her and probably will always be a dog who just lets a few close people in rather than wearing her heart on her sleeve and loving everyone! She will make a devoted companion and has lots of love to give. If you can offer her a forever home please complete an KWK9 application form.

Zac is a lovely 6 year old greyhound who has recently come into GAL's care. He was originally rescued as a stray by a pound so we don't know much about his history. Zac is currently in a foster home where is is flourishing.

Our boy needs a special home, who will understand his needs and continue his training. He can be unsure of dogs but his confidence is improving with time spent at his doggy day care.

Zac has some anxieties surrounding his bed and would appreciate a home who would understand his need for being left alone when he is sleeping.

Zac can be homed as an only dog with someone who is around a lot of the time, or could live with a calm greyhound. He would prefer no children or cats.

Sasha was brought into the centre as a stray along with Tyler.


Sasha is your typical Labrador type who loves her food. She is a friendly girl, who loves nothing more than playing ball. Sasha came in with Tyler who she gets on well with. We do not know much about Sasha but we feel she would settle into a home environment very quickly as she likes her home comforts. She has lots of energy and will make a fun companion.

Not Good With Children Good With Dogs

When meeting new people or dogs Ajay can be a little nervous but he does not take long to get to know you, after which, he is find and friendly.

Although full of energy he walks without pulling and his recall is good, albeit on the lead. Generally he is an obedient dog who likes to please and usually does what he is asked first time. He also has enough manners not to beg for food and even sits and waits until you tell him to take his own dinner.

Ajay talks a lot, which is to say, he does a lot of grunting and groaning. When greeting you he will give you a smile and, when excited, he will howl. Ajay does not like doors to be closed on him as he wants to be with you at all times, even at night; but he does understand what bedtime means and will go to his own bed to sleep. That said, he can be left on his own for short periods if the doors are left open for him to get around. Otherwise, he loves cuddles, attention and to snuggle up beside you.

Ajay would do well with an owner who will not leave him alone for long periods and who does not mind having him follow them around.

If you are interested in adopting Ajay contact Scottish Dalmatian Welfare:
