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.

Likes and dislikes:

Holly came to us a stray dog. She is a complex little lady who needs a very understanding, confident and experienced owner. Holly is a shy girl who will be looking for an experienced adult only home who can build up her confidence and trust. Holly can be protective of herself and resources like food and toys. She would benefit from a calm, non-confrontional owner. Holly has mixed with dogs before but can find initial introductions difficult. Holly has a sweet, gentle, loving and playful side too. She loves to be out and about exploring with her carers in the woods and long grass!

Type of home needed:

Holly will be such a wonderful dog in the right home, she does need work and lots of patience and time, but this will pay off hugely.

Jess is a lovely young staffie looking for a new home. She is just over two years old, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. She is currently with her owner but is proving to be just too lively with the families very small grandchildren. She is used to living with other dogs and children and would be great with older children. She could do with some additional training but is generally good on lead and off. Recall ok as long as you have treats. If you would like to offer Jess a 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.

Kos was found recently as a stray, his owner did not claim him and he has now come to us to help him find his new home. Very little is known about Kos so he will be further assessed before he is placed in any home.

Turns out this fella had very very sore ears when he came into the kennels which made him appear a bit on the grumpy side. These ears have now been treated and his true loving gentle laid back character has come out. He is a really sweet boy with a fantastic you could you resist this one!

Likes and dislikes:

Alfie is a handsome boy who is typical of his breed. He loves to be on the go and learning new things. Sniffing is his favourite hobby!

Type of home needed:

Alfie can live with children who are 12 years old or over and he needs a secure garden to practice his training in. Alfie needs a home who has experience of owning beagles before who can spend the time helping him settle in his new home. He is worried when left alone so needs a home to be around most of the day.

More about me:

Alfie needs several meets at the centre to build a relationship before going to his new home.

This poor wee chap finds himself back with us sadly through no fault at all of his own. After spending far too long in emergency kennels Rocky was fostered and then adopted but his owner's circumstances have changed. So now this poor lad is yet again in the kennels.
Little Rocky hasn't put a paw wrong and will make someone a delightful companion. He does need to be the only dog and as he is anxious around children, needs a home where children would be aged 16 and over.

Rocky is approximately 8 years old and all he wants is a loving home and a special person to curl up with. He is house trained, walks nicely on lead, has good recall, travels well, is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is fine to be left for a few hours - his needs are very few and this wee boy doesn't deserve to find himself back in kennels. It would be so unfair.

Are you that special person who could help Rocky?

Bonnie was adopted from the centre a little while ago, but her anxieties when left on her own were proving too much. Bonnie also finds travelling in the car quite stressful therefore was not able to go places with her new owner.


Bonnie is a very affectionate girl who enjoys your company. Bonnie finds being left on her own in the house very stressful and will toilet due to stress. She will also chew when left on her own therefore will need help with crate training to overcome this. She and an owner who is at home full time. Her original adopted did tell her she was very interested in livestock. She cannot be trusted around cats. Bonnie loves cuddles and being out in the paddock! She will ask to go out to the toilet when her owner is in the house. She has met children and was okay with them. Bonnie would most likely benefit from an older calmer dog to show her the ropes in order for her to develop into a well mannered lady.

Re-homing Criteria

Bonnie needs an owner who is at home all the time and is able to provide her with consistent training. She will need an owner who is patient and understands that she is still a youngster who is anxious when left.
