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:

Broxie is nervous boy at first but when he gets to know you he is full of fun, he loves going for walks and playing fetch. Broxie is fully house-trained and happy to be left for a few hours alone at home. He is an energetic lad who likes to be on the move, so an active owner who suit him best.

Type of home needed:

Broxie is looking for an owner who has the time to build up his confidence when meeting new people and dogs, he is a clever boy and learns quickly. He loves his owners but can get overwhelmed in some situations, so needs a very calm home where he won't find himself in situations where he feels threatened. For this reason, he cannot live with children, but he can live with a friendly dog.

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)

Dodger is a quiet boy who once he gets to know you loves to play with a tennis ball! He is a typical wee terrier who loves to be on the go.

Type of home needed

Dodger needs a home with children who are 16 years old or over and his own secure garden to play in. He needs a calm,patient home to let him settle and come round to his new environment in his own time. Dodger would prefer to be the only dog in the home and would benefit from someone who has previous terrier experience.

More about me

Dodger needs several meets in the centre to build a relationship before going to his new home.

Dodger is a small dog.

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’.

Prudence was picked up as a stray in Stranraer.


Prudence travelled to the centre in the van and was no problem at all. She loves her food and tries to keep her kennel clean overnight. She is very friendly and doesn't seem to take much notice of other dogs. Prudence loves to give affection and we hardly hear a peep out of her.

A wonderful. loving and very affectionate brown tabby female cat Misha is an absolute joy to be around. She is always eager to greet you when you go to visit her and she always has lots of head bumps.

At 2.5 to 3yrs old Misha is still a very young cat though thankfully out of the silly kitten mischief phase. She loves to play, especially with either the laser mouse or The Furenzy.

Misha came to us through no fault of her own after her owner lost their home and she was unable to take Misha with her. She has settled in very quickly to life at Sunny Harbour and is a joy to look after. She keeps her pen area lovely and clean, which is more than can be said for some ;-).

She enjoys her rest time as much as play time and is very eager to have someone to love whether it be a family or adult home. She would probably like to have some access to a garden well away from any busy roads or cut throughs.

Misha has lived with a dog before quite happily so would be a good candidate for someone with an existing cat friendly dog.

We are very sure that once you meet Misha you too will fall for her amazing charm. She truly is one of the nicest cats you could meet.

If you feel that you could offer Misha the loving home that she deserves then please do get in touch via our adoption application process.

Balto is a typical male malamute but a big gentle giant at heart. He's good with female after slow introductions but needs some work on socialisation as he can have ago at male dogs when passing them outside. He walks nicely on the lead and is well mannered he enjoys cuddles on the sofa. He's a bit wary of kids so ideally needs a home with no kids or older kids who are dog savvy
