Reference: 18/050
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Luna is a big, girl with an even bigger personality. She is a typically, vocal malamute and will soon let you know how she is feeling. Luna likes company and will become vocal if left alone. She loves her walks and playing with toys. Luna has come from a home with two other malamutes, however she did not get on that well with the female, and prefers her space. Luna is not keen on young children but will tolerate older children that know to give her space. This gorgeous big girl is strong on lead and can't be trusted near livestock or cats. Luna is very affectionate and loyal!

History

Luna was brought into us for rehoming due to  her owner's ill health.

Re-homing Criteria

Luna requires an owner who has experience with Alaskan Malamutes. She is a vocal girl who does not like to be left, so we are looking for an owner at home most of the time or a home with neighbours who don't mind a malamute singing voice. Luna needs a home without cats and young children.

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

Reference: 18.240
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Brutus is a very BIG, strong and playful boy who loves attention. He has met young children in the past and been fine with them however he can be very full on so unfortunately, we won’t be rehoming him to a house with small children. He doesn’t like cats and he has never shared his space with other dogs, so we are unsure of how he would act around them. Brutus is house trained but can have the odd accident in new surroundings. He copes ok with visits to the vets and is happy with handling and meeting new people. Brutus can be very vocal when on his own or in busy environments.

History

Sadly, His previous owner passed away, so the family made the hard decision to have him rehomed.

Re-homing Criteria

Brutus is looking for an active home where he will get lots of help with his training and further socialising. He will need a home without young children and preferably without other pets. Somebody with breed experience would be preferred.

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/224
Approx Age: 1 year, 3 months

Description

This fun loving, bouncy character was rescued from a pound where he had been placed after straying. He is a very playful chap who loves affection. Harp is very full on and strong on lead. He loves company and can become bored easily if not given enough stimulation. Harp is sociable towards dogs, but may prove too much for some smaller or older dogs. Harp has got more used to travelling in the car now and his adopter says he was good in the boot of the car. Despite toileting in the house on initial arrival, Harp is housetrained. He has been used to a large crate lately and was used when left for an hour or so.   Harp is a fast learner, so with time and consistent training he will make a fab companion! Harp is very affectionate and lots of fun.

History

Rescued from a pound where he was placed as a stray. He was since rehomed for a very short period of time (5 days) but unfortunately returned as the adopter was unable to cope with the training required for him. Harp was then adopted in January, and his adopter reported that he was doing really well with his training, however he proved to much for the other adopter in the household.

Re-homing Criteria

Harp requires a home where he will get lots of physical and mental stimulation. As he is a collie x, he is energetic and prone frustration if bored. He is very full on so is not for the faint hearted. He will need an owner who understands he needs consistent training using rewards based methods. He dislikes cat.

A Male silver and white Husky

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/034

Description

Akamaru is a big beautiful boy with lots of energy. He can be very aloof with strangers and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. He has never lived with children and given the fact that he is uncomfortable with new people in his space, we would not recommend him sharing his space with young infants. Akamaru loves his toys and walks. He is very strong on lead and will need an owner who has experience  with the breed. We are told Akamaru has lived with cats who he wasn't phased by, however we are also told that he can be aggressive towards new cats out and about. He is friendly towards dogs he meets, but may be a bit too full on for small breeds.

History

Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house.

Re-homing Criteria

Akamaru needs an owner who knows he is not comfortable with new people. He is very active and requires lots of exercise and further training. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young chidlren.

Description

This is the lovely Bell; she can be timid to begin with but loves a cuddle once she gets to know you. Bell is strong on the lead and doesn’t have any recall. She can be nervous of new dogs but we have been told she lived with two other dogs in her previous home and was great with them, she is also happy to share her space here at the kennels with her mum (Cleo) who she came into the centre with. Having had no experience living with children we are looking for a home without them, her previous owner told us she was easily wound up by children living nearby. We have also been told Bell would tend to cry when left alone but was much happier in the company of another dog. She is partly housetrained but will have the odd accident. Bell can be timid when meeting new people and has a fear of the hoover. She travels well in the car and copes well at the vets. Bell is a jumper and has been known to leap almost as high as the previous owners 6-foot fence.

Re-homing Criteria

This lovely girl is looking for a home where she could get lots of love and attention to help build her confidence. Due to the incident with the cat we are looking for a home without cats or young children. Her previous owners felt she would do better in a home with another dog for company.

This gorgeous lady knows basic commands and her recall is okay but she will stalk most things out and about so further training is required.

Re-homing Criteria

Fly needs an adult only home, somewhere rural where she won't come into contact with lots of new people. Once she knows you, she is affectionate, but she is a collie who likes her space.

Florence Florence Florence

Florence at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Black Crossbreed

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: Border Pets

Description

This dog is not in our Centre.  We are advertising it on behalf of Border Pet Rescue.  To adopt this dog please contact:  Earlston, Scottish Borders, TD4 6DJ | 01896 849090|info@borderspetrescue.org

The following is the information they have given us about her.

Florence is a lovely girl who came in to our care in June 2018 as her owners were unable to give her the care and exercise that she needs.
Although initially Florence is wary of new people, when she gets to know you, she is a friendly, playful and often cheeky girl!
Florence is an escape artist so she will need a completely secure garden with high fencing. She also needs an active home where she will be given plenty of stimulation.
We believe Florence was encouraged to act as a guard dog in a previous home so she still has some of these behaviours – she sometimes barks at people and dogs out on her walks and she will also bark at people behind a fence.
We have introduced Florence to some of the other dogs here at the centre and she got on well with some of them, although she can be a bit rough and full-on at times.
Florence needs a bit work on her basic training, especially her recall as she has very selective hearing!

Anyone who adopts a dog from us is welcome to use Bramble’s Field which is our 10acre field to work on things like recall and also give the dogs a run in a fully secure area.
The centre staff members are available to give ongoing support and help with any issues where possible.

Shadow Shadow Shadow

Shadow at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male GSD who is age 5 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: Border Pets
Approx Age: 5 years

Description

This dog is not in our Centre.  We are advertising it on behalf of Border Pet Rescue.  To adopt this dog please contact:  Earlston, Scottish Borders, TD4 6DJ | 01896 849090|info@borderspetrescue.org

The following is the information they have given us about Shadow.

Shadow is around 5 years old and is a German Shepherd Cross. He is looking for an experienced owner who can help him settle into his new home and give him some stability, the poor boy had a few homes before coming in to us so his next home needs to be his forever home. Shadow has been in our care for over a year now through no fault of his own.
Although he is really a gentle giant, Shadow is a very big and powerful dog so anyone interested must seriously consider if they are physically able to manage him. Furthermore, being such a big dog, he will need a home where he has enough space inside and also a fully secure garden which is big enough for him to play in.
Shadow is looking for a quiet home without young children or cats and while he doesn't mind spending a bit time with some other dogs he would really prefer a home where he would be the only dog but we would consider rehoming Shadow with the correct dog.

Due to some experiences in Shadow's previous homes, he doesn't like his rear end being touched much and isn't particularly keen on rough-and-tumble play or being overly excited during play so you must be able to read when he isn't happy with this.

Shadow can take a while to learn to trust new people but when he does, he is your best friend and loves to give a paw!

Anyone who adopts a dog from us is welcome to use Bramble’s Field which is our 10acre field to work on things like recall and also give the dogs a run in a fully secure area.

Ben 085 Ben 085 Ben 085

Ben 085 at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Tri Colour Border Collie who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/085
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Ben is a clever boy who likes things a certain way. He did not have the best of starts when he was a young boy and had several homes before he was 1! It took Ben some time to trust people, but his previous owners have put a lot of work into him and we have noticed a huge improvement in his behaviour.  Ben is generally friendly with most dogs who he meets but he will bark at them and sounds quite aggressive. We feel this is from frustration and he will need more training/management for this. He is very keen to learn new things and needs positive training and distractions to avoid confrontational situation. We had a training day with some of our dogs and Ben did very well. Ben hasn't lived with cats or children.

History

Ben was adopted from the centre about a year ago, he originally came to us due to his guarding behaviour and lack of socialisation - his latest owners have done a lot of work with him but unfortunately they have found some of his behaviour not manageable for their situation and have handed Ben back into the centre to find him his perfect match.

Re-homing Criteria

Ben needs a home with an experienced owner who can continue his management program. He needs a home without children. Ben seems to like other dogs but due to his guarding instinct if he was to live with another dog, they would need to have their own space during feeding times etc. Ben is a lovely boy who has a lot to give, he still just needs some extra guidance and understanding.

A Male Chocolate Springer Spaniel cross who is age 3 years

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/086
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Cooper is a very energetic spaniel who lacks confidence with new people in his space. He has come from a home with 2 adults and a teenager. Cooper is very strong on lead and lacks recall training. He has shared his home with 3 cats but we are told he would growl at them if they went near him when he had a treat. Cooper has not shared his home with another dog. He tends to ignore dogs he see here at the centre. He may prefer not to share his space with another dog. Cooper has been used to going in his crate when his owner has been out for an hour or so as he can shred mail which comes through the letter box. We are told he is fine in the car but has not been out in it much. Cooper loves to be kept active and would appreciate some more guidance on what is expected from him.

History

Cooper was handed in for rehoming after he snapped at his owner. His owner was trying to get him back in the gate but Cooper was reluctant, and when he was grabbed by the collar he snapped and made contact to his owners hand. Coopers owner reports that his behaviour changed since he had not been getting as much exercise or mental stimulation.

Re-homing Criteria

He requires a patient owner who knows he lacks guidance of what is expected from him. Cooper will need help with touch training in order to realise that close contact is not threatening. He will also need recall training to realise that being called results in a positive reward. Cooper needs a home without children.

Approx Age: 5 years

Description

This is the lovely little Heidi, she is full of life, has loads of energy and just loves people. We are unsure of how she would react to cats but she has got a history of snapping at other dogs. While here at the kennels Heidi was beginning her muzzle training and was doing well but has made huge progress in her foster home, where she has been greeting other dogs with a much friendlier manner. Although there has been progress, she has never actually shared her space with another dog so may be happier as an only dog with plenty human company. Heidi Travels well in the car and quite enjoys a trip to the vets when needed. She is house trained but does have the odd accident when left alone.

History

Heidi’s owner sadly passed away.

Re-homing Criteria

Heidi is looking for an active owner who can be home with her most of the time as she doesn’t like being alone for too long. She needs someone who can help further her training and socialising.

Reference: 19/094
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

This pretty girl is called Lassie, she loves attention, cuddles and zooming about in the paddock. She has lived with children before and is very playful with them however may be too much for really young kids as she has been known to knock them over when she gets over excited. She has been friendly towards other dogs out on walks and her previous owners felt she may benefit from the company of another dog around the house but we are unsure how she would react to a cat. Lassie travels well in the car and copes well at the vets and greets strangers with a slightly nervous but friendly manner.

History

Lassie originally came to the centre as her owner felt they didn’t have the time to dedicate to her, she was soon rehomed but unfortunately has returned due to toileting in the house and howling/chewing when owners were out. This behaviour is down to separation anxiety.

Re-homing Criteria

Lassie is looking for an owner who can be with her most of the time as she struggles when left alone. She will need an active home and possibly one with another dog for company. With a little help in building her confidence and socialising she will make a great pet.

Reference: 19.091
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Bruno is a big loveable boy with lots of energy and full of life. In his previous home Bruno lived with kids and was ok with them but we would recommend not rehoming him with young children as he may be too full on. He has lived with other dogs before but they were a little too much for him, Bruno has been friendly towards other dogs here at the kennels. We are told he has lived with a cat but isn’t good with livestock. Loud noises tend to scare him. Bruno is housetrained, crate trained and travels ok in the car. He is a big powerful boy and does pull on the lead, his recall is ok but he could do with some help furthering his training. Although friendly towards most strangers, Bruno does see some threat in unfamiliar adult males but can overcome this initial fear with a careful introduction.

History

Bruno’s previous home was on a farm, his owners felt rehoming him was the best thing for him as the farm collies were too full on and tended to go for him.

Re-homing Criteria

Bruno is looking for a new home where he can get help with furthering his training, plenty of exercise and lots of attention. He will need someone with an understanding of the breed, breed experience would be preferred. We are looking for someone who understands he can be nervous on first meeting and all introductions would need to be taken slowly.

Description

Roxy is a lovely girl who has lived with children 8 years old and upwards.  She also shared her home with a cat and a border terrier.  She has up to now been a kennel dog but does have some house training, however can still have the odd accident, so some work in this area will be required.  Her recall is not great especially if distracted by wildlife as she has been used in the past to hunt rabbits.  Her recall is slightly better with use of a dog whistle.  She is normally fine meeting other dogs and is fine meeting strangers.  She loves travelling in the car within the safety of a dog crate.  Roxy loves human attention and her only poor side is she will food guard against other dogs.

History

Roxy has been brought to us for rehoming due to a major change in circumstances with her owner

Re-homing Criteria

Roxy needs a home with someone willing to put in the work with her house training and recall problems.  someone who knows this type of breed would be her best prospect
