Zeus is a lovely young dog that will need someone with a lot of understanding of the breed and experience, he is not a dog for a first time shepherd owner. He has good basic commands in the house and has had one to one training, this will have to be kept up. He's a nervous boy, so will only be re-homed to a rural home.

Zeus is not a suitable dog for a family with children. He has never lived with another dog and will try and attack them until they turn on him and then he is submissive towards them. Out on the lead he will lunge at people and will grab their arm. There has been an incident with a member of the public rescue will give full details of that.

Zeus is quick to learn and will do anything for a treat, he just needs an owner with confidence who will take charge of Zeus and allow him to relax and enjoy being a puppy.

Zeus is in the Edinburgh area and any interested adopter will be required to spend a lot of time visiting him at the kennels to build up a bond. He is a beautiful dog who will need time and patience, but is still young enough to work with.

Likes and dislikes:

Bailey is looking for a home to call his own, and for owners who have the time to continue his training. Bailey loves playing fetch with his ball and is super good at catching it. Bailey enjoys going to new places to investigate new surroundings.

Type of home needed:

Bailey can be mistrustful and worried by people and is looking for a quiet home with new owners who know and love the Border Collie Breed.

More about me:

Bailey travels well in the car, is house-trained and is able to be left alone at home for short periods of time. Bailey enjoys the company of other dogs and will make a great companion in the right home.

Likes and dislikes:

Jeffrey is an adorable big chap who loves company and attention. He loves to be tucked into his bed!

Type of home needed:

Jeffrey is looking for a home with a very secure garden to help with his training. Someone who has had lurchers before who understands there high chase drive would be beneficial for him. He can live with children who are 10 years old or over and needs someone to be home most of the day as he can be worried when left.

Meet gorgeous 1 year old Gus. Gus is currently in a quiet foster home and has settled really well. Gus is still very much a puppy and needs to learn some basic manners and basic obedience cues.
He is an incredibly quick learner but cannot focus in a busy household. He is housetrained but in other ways he is still very much a puppy.

Gus travels ok in the car, is fantastic with children of all ages and other dogs. He would chase cats given a chance though.

Although he is brilliant with children, he becomes very excited and is unable to focus or slow down when they are around.

Gus is also a very energetic young boy who needs mental and physical stimulation in a quiet home. He is good with other dogs.

We require his new owners to continue his training.

Homing requirements

Someone who has time to continue his training
No cats
A garden
An active owner who enjoys long walks
No young children living in the home (visiting children would be fine but Gus gets far too excited with young children)

Mr Minstrel is looking for a special home.

Minstrel is a lurcher, approximately one and a half years old and is an affectionate and playful boy. In the home environment he is calm and relaxed. He loves cuddles and is housetrained.

Minstrel has had some basic training in the past but has also taken to clicker training with enthusiasm! He loves to interact with people, although he can be a little shy around men initially, and responds well to praise and encouragement. Minstrel bonds strongly with people and he does have some separation issues but these could be improved on greatly within a home environment.

We don’t think that Minstrel has had the opportunity to learn about things that he may encounter outside of the home environment and as a result finds this stressful and is not comfortable with other dogs. Minstrel would have to be the only dog in the home and he does not like cats.

Minstrel needs a special home with someone understanding who would take the time to help him gain confidence, to settle and enable him to carry on with his training plan; this would be fully supported by a Canine Behaviourist who currently is working with him. This is what she has to say about him;

‘Minstrel is a lovely boy who needs a calm environment to improve his confidence and to continue with his training. He took to agility and clicker training instantly and is improving greatly on his impulse control. Anyone who considers taking him into their home would see that with patience and understanding he has huge potential’.

LASSIE is a very strong black girl. She is very friendly to all people but when out walking a halti or a harness is the order of the day. She gets on very well with the other greyhounds and is certainly an enthusiastic, full of life dog. She is obviously a very happy, very well looked after dog. With walk training she will be a wonderful pet. She has a beautiful build.

Jake's owners do not have enough time for him, so he is looking for a forever home where he will get the attention he needs.


Jake is a young, energetic terrier with lots of love to give. He has lived with children who he got on okay with, however he is very bouncy. We feel he would be best suited to children over the age of 10 years. Jake has been known to chase cats and he has shown a lot of interest towards livestock. Jake is full of beans and would suit an active home, with owners who are familiar with the breed. He isn't very sociable around other dogs so needs to be the only dog in his home. He loves to play with toys and is an affectionate wee guy.

Re-homing Criteria

This young terrier is looking for an owner who understands the Patterdale breed. He isn't good with other dogs so no other dogs in his home.
