New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Moffat Dogs

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Moffat Dogs

Moffat Dogs is described as a black German Shepherd cross. The famous Moffat Dogs!! Finally after 6 months we feel these guys are ready to find their forever homes. A lot of work has gone into the 6 dogs that were picked up as strays near Moffat in July 2023. With the help of Dumfries & Galloway Police and Lee Heron, of Lost Dogs Dumfries and Galloway, these dogs have been given a second chance at life. It has been a huge challenge for such a small organisation to deal with 6 feral dogs all at the same time, a challenge many rescues would not have undertaken, but the team at the centre rose to the challenge and we now feel the time has come to look for new homes for them all. Due to the background of these dogs we will be looking for very specific homes, any applications received will be strongly vetted for suitability. Potential homes will need to have experience of under-socialised dogs, preferably large breeds, have a large fully enclosed garden with solid fencing of 6ft + as they have all attempted to clear our 7ft secure paddock fencing. Any potential homes will need to be extremely patient and understanding with their training going forward. We believe them to be around 2 years old. History These dogs came to us as unclaimed strays Re-homing Criteria Any potential adopters of these dogs must be prepared to regularly visit the centre multiple times a week to develop a bond , this is a must and non-negotiable , so please keep this in mind when applying especially if you are not local to the centre. We believe these guys to have only lived in a multi dog, kennel situation with little social interaction from people. They would all benefit from a confident, well socialised, neutered dog in the household of the opposite sex. The improvement in these guys since being with us is nothing short of amazing in such a short time, but there is still a long road ahead and any adopters would need to be extremely patient and understanding going forward with their training, as it is unlikely they would ever be an average pet dog. We will not be considering homes with children under 18yrs or cats. A home where someone is around most of the time is important, and we are looking for very quiet homes and locations as they would not cope in a busy environment. A totally secure garden is essential with solid fencing, not mesh or wire, of at least 6ft as they have all attempted to clear our 7ft fencing around the paddock area. Each dog has their own separate needs and personality and we will be reading through all applications to see if any would match a specific dogs requirements. When completing the Homefinding Questionnaire, please give as much information as possible on your experience and circumstances. These dogs have come on leaps and bounds since coming to the centre, but any potential adopters will need to understand that leaving us will be a massive set back to their development , but this does need to happen so they can move forward. Adopters need to understand that it will be a long road moving forward, and will not be a easy task, but the reward when they are settled would be second to none! If you feel you have the right experience, environment, time and patience to give one of our Moffat dogs a home please complete our Homefinding Questionnaire and we will be in touch if we feel you'd be a good match.

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Xiolin & Harry

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Xiolin & Harry

Xiolin & Harry is described as a black Shih-Tzu. Two fun loving characters ! Xiolin who is 8 years old and Harry who is 4 and a half, are two fun loving Shih-tzu's who love being out and about meeting new people. Ideally we would love these pair to go together but they could be rehomed separately as long as there was a pre-existing dog in the household. They are both clean in their kennel.  We have been advised by their previous owner that they will both chase cats, so we would not rehome them where there would be a cat in the household. History These pair came into us due to a change in their previous owners circumstances. Re-homing Criteria We would love this pair to be rehomed together, but this is not essential and could be rehomed separately as long as there was a pre-existing dog in the household. They do both love to be out walking so an active home is a must, they would not be happy with just a potter in the garden. We know that they do not get on with cats and will chase them. They would be ok with dog savvy children of 8years + . A secure garden is a must for these pair so they can enjoy somewhere they can play safely, fencing of 4ft +  PLEASE BE AWARE - this breed of dog would need to visit a professional groomer roughly every 8 weeks at a cost of around £40 each. This is something that you would need to take into account before commiting.  This pair are just full of so much fun and endless love . Do you think you could be the one to offer what these wonderful guys need ? ADOPTION PROCEDURE Please support us ... DONATE NOW

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Timmy

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Timmy

Timmy is described as a white and black Mixed. Timmy - male, castrated and fully vaccinated. DOB 20/02/2020 When we rescued lovely Boo we were told his best pall Timmy also needed a home so how could we say no? At the time Timmy was recovering from surgery to fix both his front legs as a result of being hit by a car. He was found last year in November, after he spent 24 HOURS ON THE COLD CEMENT in the middle of the city. He was sleeping in the freezing cold after being hit by a car with 2 broken front legs and hip. His rescuer ensured he had immediate surgery and he spent the next few months crawling and was unable to walk for quite some time. Timmy then went off to the foster where he narrowly escaped death a second time after someone threw antifreeze over the fence and killed the other dog he was living with. Sadly Timmy also damaged his hip in the original accident so once he arrived with us he went back to the vets to have his femoral head removed. For this reason we are looking for a very special family for Timmy. He will never be a 'normal' dog going on extra long walks and hiking up mountains BUT he will make someone the most loveable companion if he is given the chance. He gets along great with other dogs and is even good around cats. I cannot begin to tell you how totally adorable this dog is. He is just the sweetest, kindest and most gentle of souls and nothing he has been through has affected his amazing nature. What he lacks in physical ability, he makes up for tenfold in the temperament department. Timmy walks well on a lead and is house trained, but does need a home to have direct access to a secure garden where he can potter about as the length of walks he can do will be limited. If you are interested in adopting Timmy please complete an application form at the link below. You can read all about the process of adoption on our website and we suggest you do this before applying. Homecheck and adoption donation of £500 will apply. https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form Thank you xx

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Boo Bear

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Boo Bear

Boo Bear is described as a black and white Mixed. Baby Boo - male, not castrated and fully vaccinated. DOB 20/06/2023 Poor Boo was found laid in the street with not only one, but both of his back legs broken. He laid in the street in exactly the same spot for two days as he was unable to move and no one went to help. When our rescuer was eventually called and went to his aid he was laid on a pile of poo as he’d not been able to move far enough to get out of it. He was seen by vet and had both his legs operated on with special fixings and spent a number of months recovering in the vets with his best pal Timmy (also looking for a home). We are looking for a very special family for Boo. He will never be a 'normal' dog going on extra long walks and hiking up mountains BUT he will make someone the most loveable companion if he is given the chance. He gets along great with other dogs and is even good around cats. His home needs to have direct access to a secure garden. Boo is house trained and walks on a lead and is just the sweetest dog you will ever meet. He cries with joy every time you come back from being away and hangs onto your clothing following you round the yard and just wants to be loved. After everything this poor boy has been through it is amazing that his capability to live remains intact and although he is physically imperfect he is perfect in every other way. If you are interested in Boo please complete an adoption form at the link below. Please also read about our adoption process on the website before completing the application. Homecheck and adoption donation of £500 applies. https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form Thank you xx

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Juna

New dog listed for rescue at the Saving and Rehoming Strays - Juna

Juna is described as a white and grey mixed. Juna - DOB 03 May 2023 - female. Spayed and fully vaccinated. Juna is one of two siblings we were asked to take on as their rescuer could not find any other solution for them. They are now nearly 10 months old and before coming to SRS lived their whole life (since being rescued as tiny babies) in a stable and are desperately needing their freedom and a family to call their own. These lovely sisters were dumped in a forest with their other siblings and whereas the other pups were all adopted, Jura and Fina did not get any interest as they were the largest of the litter which is such as shame as they are beautiful dogs. Since being with SRS they have enjoyed spending time with the other dogs in our care, especially Rory who can match them in size. They are typical playful pups who are looking for families willing to put in the work and training they will need including lead, house and recall training. They enjoy living with other dogs but have not been tested with cats. The girls have had no training and do not currently walk on a lead, so direct access to a secure garden where work can be done on this is essential. Applicants must have secure gardens (at least 5 ft fences/walls) and no small children due to their large size. We want them to have a life of fun and adventures with a family who will love them completely. If you are interested in adopting Juna please complete an adoption form at the link below. Homecheck and adoption donation of £500 applies. Thank you xx https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue  - Finn

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue - Finn

Finn is described as a black Greyhound. Fantastic Finn Needs Your Help Finn finds himself looking for a new home through no fault of his own and after many years of happy retirement. Sadly his owners circumstances changed but he is a fantastic boy who will slip easily and deservingly into his new home. Finn was a racer but at 8 years old is fully enjoying his retirement and has lived with a girl greyhound companion until recently but could equally live happily as an only dog. Finn is not suitable for a home with cats or small furry companions. He is a big, handsome, black coated boy with gorgeous silvery highlights and the softest eyes. A new adopter should be prepared for Finn to take his time to get you know you gently and at his speed. But once he bonds, his affectionate and loyal side will be his greatest strength. Finn loves to lean on you and will come looking for ear rubs with joy. He is a fantastic companion and happy just to be with you in an undemanding way. Finn can be anxious in certain circumstances when out walking if approached suddenly by off lead dogs but has responded very well to calming training and should be allowed to mix with other dogs at his own pace. But he settles wonderfully with other dogs when politely introduced, happy to walk with dogs he knows and is very easy to handle on the lead. He is equally happy to visit a cafe or similar, will settle by your side and is delighted to receive a tasty treat. And Finn is very easily settled at home, loves a big cosy bed, is used to all the sights and sounds of home life like stairs and really loves his food. He will gently take his treats and is very adventurous with food, happy to have a raw or dry feed, loves extra vegetables as toppers and a special treat is always welcome. So please give us a call to meet the fantastic Finn, a steady boy with maturity and experience on his side and so much love to give in return.
