Buddy Buddy Buddy

Buddy at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Fawn Jack Russell Terrier cross Pug who is age 2 years 2 months

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Buddy is an energetic, terrier who is looking for some guidance. Once he knows you he is very affectionate but he does needs guidance learning boundaries. Buddy can mouth very hard and becomes aroused very easily therefore he is needs discouraged from rough play. Buddy can be vocal and very full on with some dogs. He has shared his space with another dog for a short period of time but we are told the other dog was not keen on him. Buddy is very toy and food motivated so this helps with training. He lacks experience of cats and given his full on terrier nature, we can’t guarantee he would live with one. Buddy has been sick in the car previously so will need help becoming used to traveling. Buddy will make a great companion for an owner who has lots of time to invest with his ongoing training.

History

Buddy was handed in for rehoming as he has bitten in his previous home. His owners were also moving house and with young children in the home they could not provide him with the ongoing training he requires as he was not comfortable with children in his space.

Re-homing Criteria

Buddy displays resource guarding behaviour which means he feels the need to guard items he values such as toys or treats. This can be managed by swapping items he values for higher value items so he doe not feel threatened. An adult only home is essential.  He is not comfortable with veterinary examinations so is being muzzle trained and desensitised to touch.  Calm touch-training would also help him understand hands are not for biting. This must be continued and his adopter must be committed to his ongoing requirements. His nature is that of a strong-willed terrier so his adopter must understand the characteristics of independent terriers who require guidance.

Scooby Scooby

Scooby at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Brindle Crossbreed

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

This lovely lad is called Scooby, he is a very large boy who is looking for a committed owner. Scooby is very food focused and has a very hard bite when he is given a treat. Due to his lack of bite inhibition, we would not recommend him go to a home with children. Scooby is extremely interested in livestock and we would predict he will react similarly towards cats and small fluffy animals so he will not be rehomed to a house with them. Scooby walks really well on the lead but can be strong when distracted so is not for the faint hearted! This big boy appears to greet some of the dogs he has seen in neighbouring kennels fairly well, but then he has taken a disliking to others (a black male dog).  Given that we don’t have any history for Scooby, we can’t guarantee how he will react in a home environment.

History

Scooby was brought into the by the council as he was found straying in the Dumfries area. He was not wearing a collar and had no microchip on arrival. Noboydy has reported him missing prior to his entry.

Re-homing Criteria

Scooby require a home without children or cats. He needs an active owner who can invest plenty of time into training and understands the nature of large bull lurchers. Scooby must not be allowed off lead near livestock.

Toby Toby Toby

Toby * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Chocolate Labrador who is age 9 years

Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Toby is a big handsome lab who as you can guess, loves his food! He is very affectionate and friendly, but does need to learn some boundaries. Although he gets on well with Honey the older dog he came in with, we are told she prefers space from him as he can be full on.  He will need some guidance with recall training and can’t be trusted not to chase cats. Toby loves his walks and playing with toys but he is quite strong on lead. This big boy is very excitable and can be too much for children. Toby is a water baby and loves to splash in mucky puddles. He has been known to jump 5ft fences in his previous home so is looking for a secure garden. He gets a little unsettled in the car, so a secure boot or crate would be advised.  Toby loves attention and will make a fun companion.

History

Toby was brought in along with his pal Honey as his owners could no longer give him the time he deserves.

Re-homing Criteria

Toby is looking for a home without cats and someone who can give him some guidance. As he has had some changes in his life recently, he may need a little refresher course in house training but this shouldn’t take him long to remember at all.

Lola Lola Lola

Lola at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White witj Brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Life and soul of the party!

Lola is very friendly and affectionate! She is however, very over the top and needs help learning some manners. She has met children over 10 years old who she was over excited with so we would recommend a home without children due to her over enthusiastic energy. Lola has shared her space with Tikki who she has been okay. She does however react to some dogs and being a pushy girl, she can get into trouble. Lola will chase cats and cannot be trusted near livestock.  She likes her food but can be unsettled in the car. Star has been used to being kenneled outside but can chew if she is bored and not given enough stimulation. She has been keeping her kennel clean whilst being at the centre so would most likely be clean in the house. She likes her walks and loves interaction.

History

Lola was brought in for rehoming due to  a relationship split,

Re-homing Criteria

Lola is looking for an owner who can provide her with lots of guidance. Someone who knows the breed characteristics would be advantageous.  Lola would suit a home without young children and possible where she is the only dog due to over exuberant nature.

Tikki is a gorgeous girl who has lots of energy. She loves her walks and is very affectionate.  She has been kennelled outside but keeps her kennel clean. Tikki has been used to other dogs and gets on fine with Lola. She can however be reactive to some other dogs on lead. Tikki loves her home but can be a little unsettled in the car, due to lack of experience. Tikki likes her food but will need help with recall training. Given her breed mix (Sighthound x Husky) she loves to chase animals such as birds and rabbits, so prospective owners must keep this in mind when out walking her. Tikki loves company and doesn’t like being on her own.  We are told she would take any opportunity to snuggle up by the fire.

History

Tikki was brought in for rehoming along with Lola due to a relationship split.

Re-homing Criteria

Tikki is looking for an owner who can provide her with lots of company and guidance. She needs a home without cats and small animals.

Elma Elma Elma

Elma at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Brindle Lurcher who is age 1 year

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Elma is a very loveable character, everyone she meets instantly falls for her. She enjoys greeting new people and zooming around the paddock. This girl has lots of energy and love to give.  Elma was originally found as a stray so her history is limited.  She was briefly rehomed and the owner found that she does chew when she gets bored.  We have found Elma to be reactive to some dogs on lead.

We feel that she would benefit from being exercised in a large enclosed area so she has the opportunity to zoom!

History

Elma was found as a stray and brought to the centre by the council so sadly we don't have any history on her.  She was adopted for a short period of time but was returned due to destructive behaviour.

Re-homing Criteria

Elma is on the hunt for an active home with an owner who is happy to work with us through her training and socialising needs, she is such a friendly girl and a quick learner, she will make a great best friend for someone.

I love home comforts!

Smudge loves her home comforts and is finding kennel life quite stressful.  Smudge is reactive towards other dogs and cats so would prefer a home with no other pets.  She has been around small children in the past but we have found her to be OTT when she starts to play so we will only consider a home with older children.  Smudge is housetrained and has been used to a crate in the past.

Lovely Lurcher!

Zoe is a very affectionate girl who loves attention.  We have found that she tries to stay clean in her kennel but she may require some housetraining in her new home.  Zoe has mixed well with other dogs here at the centre so it is possible for her to be rehomed with another dog.   As she was a stray, our information is limited so we can’t say how she would react to cats and small children.

History

Zoe was found as a stray.

Coisty is a lovely big dog who just loves everyone once he knows you.  We have found him to be reactive towards other dogs at the centre so he would be suited to a home where he would be the only dog.  We were told he gets on with cats and children, although we feel at his time in life older children (13yrs+) would be best.

Big Handsome Lad!

Diesel is a very big handsome boy!  He lived with children in his previous home but was too boisterous and was knocking them over.  Due to his size, we will not rehome Diesel with children.  We have found Diesel to be quite wary of new dogs at the centre and can be reactive at times.  He isn’t well mannered and thinks that it’s appropriate to jump up to say hello, any new potential owner must understand that he is still very young and requires basic training.

Lovely chunky monkey!

Spike is a lovely boy who can be nervous initially when meeting new people.  He wasn't getting along with the other dog in the house and can be reactive towards other dogs at the centre. For this reason, we won't rehome Spike to household with another dog.  Spike has met children before and has been wary of them at first, he can be a bit OTT so would be too much for small children.  Spike is housetrained and crate trained.

History

Spike has been at the centre for rehoming before.  Unfortunately, he wasn't getting on with the other dog in the house and had to be returned.

Re-homing Criteria

Spike is looking for a home where he will be the only dog. Any children in the home would need to be 13yrs+.  He can be reactive towards other dogs on & off lead, so staff have been training him to wear a muzzle.  Spike is a very clever boy and we believe that with some guidance he will make an excellent canine companion!
