She has come from a home with two adults but proved very uncomfortable around children. Mishka is reactive towards dogs and has never shared her space with other pets.

Polo Polo Polo

Polo * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Dark brindle Bull Lurcher

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

Shelter Location: Dovecotewell, by Glencaple Dumfries Dumfries and Galloway DG1 4RH





Reference: 17/171

Description

Polo is an affectionate boy who likes interaction. He is very camera shy and doesn't pose very well! He is very food focused and we are currently helping him to build some body condition as he could do with putting on some weight. Polo is friendly towards Astra the female lurcher he was found with. He doesn't appear to be reactive towards other dogs he see's whilst on lead. He travelled okay in the van over to the centre but we are unsure of his previous car experience. Polo is friendly, full of beans and in need of some TLC and positive, reward based training.

History

Polo was collected from vets west of the region where he was found as a stray along with Astra the female lurcher. Both are in quite poor body condition and with lots of scars and wounds on them, we fear they have been used for coursing.

Re-homing Criteria

Polo is looking for an owner with sight hound or bull breed experience. He will most likely have a strong predatory chase instinct given his breed, therefore we recommend a home without cats or small fluffy animals. As Polo was a stray, we have no history on what he has been used to regarding children, living indoors or other animals. We recommend a home without young children as he is very greedy and can snatch food out of your hands!

A Male White with black Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

Shelter Location: Dovecotewell, by Glencaple Dumfries Dumfries and Galloway DG1 4RH





Reference: 17/218 Approx Age: 4 years

Description

Rocko is a typical energetic, affectionate staffie. Although he likes children, he is very full on so would so we feel he would suit an adult only home due to his boisterousness. Rocko is friendly towards most female dogs but is reactive towards male dogs. His re-call is fair but he does pull strongly on the lead. We don't know what Rocko is like with cats. Rocko loves treats and is coming on well with his reward based training.  He loves to be bathed and brushed. Rocko loves human company at home.

History

Rocko has had a couple of homes and is now ready for his forever home.

Re-homing Criteria

Rocko needs a confident, experienced staffie home where he can get the exercise and training he needs. He is a lovely boy and although he appears to be toilet trained at the kennels, his last owners said he wasn’t clean in their house. We do feel that with the right environment - this shouldn’t be an issue.

Reference: 17/246
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Lucy is a very nervous dog and it can take time for her to trust new people that she meets however, once she knows you she’s a very bouncy, friendly girl.  She lived with adults and children in her previous home however, she can guard her food and toys and can snatch food from young children’s hands.  Due to this behaviour, we would suggest a home with older children who can understand that she needs her own space.  Lucy lived with another dog who she was good with, but she can bark at strange dogs when out for walks.  She has never met cats or small furries before.  Lucy can pull on the lead and has been used to a harness, her recall is selective when off lead.  She can be quite anxious when travelling in the car and has jumped from the boot into the front.  Lucy likes company and has been known to chew when left alone.  She is crate trained and housetrained.  We that this lovely girl will blossom in the right home.

History

Lucy was handed into the centre for rehoming as her owners felt that they didn’t have enough time for her.

Re-homing Criteria

Lucy needs a patient owner who can help her build her confidence as she can be very nervous.  A home with no young children and an owner who is there most of the time would suit her best.

Shelter Location: Dovecotewell, by Glencaple Dumfries Dumfries and Galloway DG1 4RH




Reference: 17/241

Description

Paris can be a little nervous of new people and situations but after gaining your trust, she shows you her affectionate side. Paris hasn't known life without dog company and she finds being on her own quite daunting. Paris is fine to be left with Misty though who she gets on great with. She has been around children briefly and we are told she was okay with them. Paris loves being out for her walks but needs recall training as she has not been used to being off lead before other than in the garden. Paris appears friendly towards other dogs but some dogs do find it difficult to read her body language due to her breed physical characteristics. She has not met cats. She is affectionate and loves running in the paddock.

History

Paris was handed in for rehoming along with Misty due to a change of circumstances in her previous home.

Re-homing Criteria

Paris is dependent on Misty who she looks to for reassurance and for this reason we feel the inseparable duo need to be rehomed together.

Gabe Gabe Gabe

Gabe at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Chihuahua who is age 2 years

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

Shelter Location: Dovecotewell, by Glencaple Dumfries Dumfries and Galloway DG1 4RH




Reference: 18.020
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Gabe is a nervous boy who has snapped at strangers in the past. If he feels unsure of a situation he panics and can snap out in fear. He can be reactive with other dogs although he has been mixed with a couple of girls at the centre who he loved! Traffic and bikes can be very scary, he likes to tell them to go away by barking at them. Gabe is house and crate trained. He lived with cats, he didn’t like them and would have a go at them, there were visiting children in his last home and although there were no growl/snap incidents with the children- he was always closely supervised. He hasn't travelled much and has been crated in the car - he will whine a little bit but settles down. We suspect Gabe would prefer a child free house. At the centre we have allowed him to come to us in his time and he now enjoys getting attention from us. He likes his teddies and his home comforts.

History

Gabe was brought into the centre due to his behaviour with some strangers.

Re-homing Criteria

Gabe needs an owner who has experience fear aggressive dogs. He would prefer to live without other pets (he may live with a small female dog) and no children.
