Luna Luna Luna

Luna at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Seal and White Alaskan Malamute who is age 6 years

Not Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

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.

Shay Shay Shay

Shay at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Brown Jack Russel Terrier cross who is age 8 years

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/188
Approx Age: 8 years

Description

Shay is quite the lovable rogue.  He is fine to walk with female dogs but does not get along with males.  His table manners are not the best so care has to be taken when giving him treats as he tends to snatch at them.  With some positive training this problem should be able to sorted out.  He will also require some assistance with his house training as he does tend to cock his leg everywhere.  He is very people friendly, however care has to be taken if picking him up for any reason as he can take issue with this if taken unawares.  With a little effort and assistance Shay should become a lovely companion.  Shay does unfortunately have a grade 4 heart murmur which means he will be on medication for the remainder of his life.  It is not known if Shay has been around cats before.

History

Shay was rescued from a Dog Pound.  He had been surrendered by an elderly owner who unfortunately was no longer able to care for him.

Re-homing Criteria

Due to Shay's lack of table manners, we will not be rehoming him to a home with young children in case of an accident.  He will require quite an experienced home with someone who is prepared through positive training techniques help him with his behaviour.

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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.

Luna2 Luna2 Luna2

Luna2 at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Rotti who is age 9 years

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.242
Approx Age: 9 years

Description

Luna is a big friendly girl, she seems quite relaxed here at the centre and loves her walks. She can be quite vocal in busy environments. Her previous owners have told us she has been known to snap at dogs, it seems to be quite hit or miss as to whether she gets on with them or not. Luna has lived with children in the past and was great with them but would have a growl if they were too full on. Her previous owners told us she couldn’t be trusted around cats or small animals. She is house trained and is happy to be left on her own for short periods of time. She has some recall but is easily distracted so would need support in further training. She copes ok in the car and with trips to the vets but isn’t keen on close handling until she gets to know you.

History

Lunas previous owners had to make the hard decision to re-home her due to a change in circumstances, they were no longer able to keep her and wanted what was best for her.

Re-homing Criteria

Luna would benefit from an active home with an owner who possibly has some breed experience. She is a big, strong girl so will need help in further training when out on the lead. As she isn’t keen on other dogs she would prefer a home where she can be the only pet.

Blue Blue Blue

Blue at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Blue merle Crossbreed who is age 11 years

Not Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.236
Approx Age: 11 years

Description

Blue is a lovable old chap who walks well on lead. He enjoys his walks, playing in water and loves food! Blue is currently on a diet though as he can’t resist a biscuit! Blue travels well in the car and copes well at the vets. He has lived with children in the past but likes his own space and he has snapped at children previously.  Blue has never lived with cats and his previous owner said he has been known to chase them. Blue is affectionate but he does also like his space.  He doesn’t like traffic or loud noises and will lunge at moving cars and motorbikes. Blue is house trained and good in the car.

History

Blue was originally brought into the centre almost 9 years ago as a rescue from a pound. He was quickly adopted and his family had him for over 8 years. Unfortunately, due to changes in circumstance they had to make the very difficult decision to rehome him. They felt he would do better in a home without young children. Blue was adopted in Dec 2018 but unfortunately his traffic chasing proved too much for his owner.

Re-homing Criteria

Blue requires an owner who has experience with collies who chase cars. When blue is fixated on the moving vehicles, he can redirect and snap so potential adopters must take this into consideration. Ideally, Blue would suit a rural home away from busy roads. He needs space from other animals and will not tolerate children. We are looking for an owner who can help him with recall training. Blue loves his walks so is looking for a relatively active home with an owner who understands he wants a companion, but likes his own space now and again. He is looking for someone who is home most of the day as he struggles with separation anxiety.

Pepper Pepper Pepper

Pepper at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Silver and Tan Yorkie cross Chihuhua who is age 3 years 1 month

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/261
Approx Age: 3 years, 1 month

Description

Pepper is a nervous character who can be uncomfortable in new situations and with strangers. It takes her time to feel confident with people. Once she knows you she is very affectionate and seeks reassurance form you. This gorgeous girl has no experience with children and going by her nervous nature, we would not place her in a house with children. Pepper is reactive to dogs out and about and will soon tell them when she is not comfortable with them in her space. She has lived with a cat and was okay, however we were told she was vocal towards the cat. Pepper lacks recall and can be spooked easily by noises and sudden movements. She knows basic commands and once she knows you, she is very affectionate. Pepper is crate trained and likes to be cosy. She is not a fan of the cold or traffic. She likes to play and loves to snuggle up with you on the sofa or in bed.

History

Peppers owner made the difficult decision to hand her in for rehoming as she was snapping at her owners and showed resource guarding behaviour. She bit her owner when they went near her when she had food.

Re-homing Criteria

Pepper needs an owner who understands that will snap when not comfortable. She guards her food and resource guards her owner, so we are looking for an owner who understands this and can help her overcome any insecurities she has by using up to date, reward based training. Pepper is to be rehomed to a quiet, adult only house. Although we are told Pepper has in the past interacted well with dogs, she appears quite uncomfortable with some of the dogs she has met here. This most likely is a fear based response and with the right dog she may socialise fine.

Peggy Peggy Peggy

Peggy at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White and Black Border Collie who is age 1 year 4 months

Not Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/252
Approx Age: 1 year, 4 months

Description

Peggy is a typical working stock type collie, who is highly driven but has a slightly nervous temperament. She is very active and needs to be kept busy mentally and physically in order to prevent frustration. Activities such as agility or fly-ball would most likely be perfect for her in order to keep her frustration levels down. This gorgeous girl requires clear, consistent boundaries with positive reinforcement. Peggy likes her space and is looking for an owner who can recognise when she feels uncomfortable with close contact.  Although Peggy can display a little on lead frustration towards some new dogs, she mixes well with most dogs. She has not yet shared her home with other dogs though. Peggy will herd sheep and hens and chases cats and squirrels. Peggy is house trained and her recall is fairly good but this will need continued training as she is easily distracted by movement. Like most working type collies, Peggy has a high chase instinct and will chase moving cars. This is improving, but she requires an owner who can continue her training. Peggy can get bored easily when left alone and has chewed beds when her owners have been out. Peggy is a lovely girl and can be very affectionate but she will display warning signs when she is not comfortable with close interaction.

History

Peggy was born on site at the Rescue Centre 16 months ago. She was adopted, but unfortunately this did not work out. Peggy’s owners stated that she had inexplicably snapped on a couple of occasions, so she was brought into the centre to be assessed by our external behaviourist. Peggy’s owners made the difficult yet sensible decision to re-home her.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for an owner who understands the needs of working type collies and is able to provide Peggy with clear, consistent training and socialising using reward based techniques.  She is not to be re-homed with children. Peggy requires an active home, with someone who can provide her with the mental and physical stimulation she requires. Her new adopters must understand that she can only tolerate a certain amount of close contact and they need to be able to recognise her body language when she is not comfortable and give her the space she requires.
