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.

Rex Rex Rex

Rex * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Tri Colour Border Collie who is age < 1 year

Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.150
Approx Age: < 1 year

Description

Rex is a lively lad who is oozing with friendliness! He a typical young collie who is always looking for something to keep him busy. Rex has come from a home with children who he was fine with, however he has been known to mouth and snap if he is frustrated, so we would recommend older children and owners who are able to provide him with the exercise and mental stimulation he requires. Rex has had experienced living with cats who he was good with. He is friendly towards dog and loves to play. As he is still a youngster who is learning, he has the odd accident and will chew if left alone. Rex is very affectionate and loves interaction. He does however have travel sickness and was given anti sickness tablets for travelling when he came to the centre. This may be something he will overcome with experience and time. He needs help to get used to household appliances like hoovers and hairdryers Rex loves to play ball and will make a fun companion!

History

Rex’s owners had to move accommodation due to their house flooding, and the new property they were in did not have access to a garden. They felt this was not adequate for Rex and reluctantly handed him in to find another home.

Re-homing Criteria

Rex is looking for a home with someone to understands the needs of a young, energetic collie. He needs further training and socialising. Rex loves being outside and would benefit from a home with easy access to an outside garden in order to help his toilet training.

Sadie Sadie

Sadie * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Black and tan German Shepherd Dog who is age 6 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/400
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Sadie is looking for a home externally - please do not contact the centre - see below

History

Sadie's elderly owners had to part with her due to their own health issues. She is being cared for in a foster home and we have been asked to help by advertising her. She is very nervous around new people but loving with those she trusts. She does not get on with the other bitch in the foster home. She is fine in the car and has good recall. No problems out on walks. She has recently been spayed.

Re-homing Criteria

Sadie did not like the small dogs she previously lived with. If she has to share her home, a similarly sized or bigger male dog might work. She needs a quiet household without too many visitors. Her new owner needs to be confident and capable with this breed, and understand that Sadie's fear issues around new people will need careful management.

If you think you could be the right person for Sadie, please call Lynda for a chat on 07701305809

A Female Sable German Shepherd

Not Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/144

Description

Bella is a larger than life character who loves attention! We do not have a date of birth for her, but we estimate her to be about 18months. She is full of energy and can be very over the top with people. Bella is reactive to other dogs and until she learns some manners and social skills, we feel she needs to be the only dog in the home at this stage. This beautiful girl will most likely need a refresher course in house training as she has spent a lot of time in a kennel environment. Bella loves her toys and is very playful. She is however very strong and is not for the faint hearted! Bella travelled fine in a crate in the van, however we do not know if she has had much experience being in a car.  Bella is affectionate and very loving.

History

Bella came over from a pound in Norther Ireland. We have no information on her background. She arrived at the centre carrying some of her own passengers, and she gave birth to a healthy litter of pups here at the centre. Bella was a great mum and did a great job caring for her litter.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for a home with owners who understand the breed traits of German Shepherds. Bella is very strong, and active. She needs an owner who can continue her training and socialising. At this, stage, Bella will need to be the only dog in the house until she improves in her social skills with other dogs..Homefinder Questionnaire

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

Reference: 18/194
Approx Age: 9 years

Description

Diesel is very friendly! He loves everyone he meets, but can be a little too full on at times with his enthusiasm levels! Diesel has come from a home with young children who he was good with. He is sociable towards other dogs, although may prove too much for small dogs. This energetic boy loves his toys and playing fetch. Like most staffies, he loves nothing more than being made a fuss of and enjoys being curled up with you in bed. Diesel has no road sense. We are told he will try and jump into cars if the windows are open. This clever boy can open some doors too. Diesel does not like cats so is looking for a home where he wont come into contact with them. He has been known to try and chase livestock. Diesel is very affectionate and fun!

History

Diesel's owner made the tough decision to bring him in for rehoming as he was being left too long on his own, due to an increase in work hours.

Re-homing Criteria

Diesel loves company and ideally is looking for a home where he won't be left. He is a strong boy and needs a home without cats. Diesel is currently on a diet as he has enjoying one too many biscuits!

Reference: 18/189
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Humphrey is a very lively lad with endless energy and loves attention. He is a confident boy who has mixed well with female dogs but has no experience with male dogs. We are unsure how he would act around children or cats. He was picked up as a stray and taken to a pound where we got him from so we don’t have any information on his past. We know he travels well in the car and prefers to eat alone. Humphrey will need support in all elements of training.

Re-homing Criteria

Humphrey would suit an active home where he could get plenty of exercise and attention. He needs an owner who can put in the time to help him with training and socialising.

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.

A Female Border Collie who is age 6 years

Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.207
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Moss is a sweet girl who is very shy at first, she doesn’t like loud bangs and if she is unsure of anything she prefers to stay her ‘safe spot’ which in her last home was her kennel.

She has spent most of her life as a kennel dog but spent a few nights in a house before coming to the centre. She slept in the kitchen and was clean overnight. Moss is used to lots of different animals and she doesn’t show any interest in them, she has met sheep, cows, cats, dogs and Alpacas. Moss seems to enjoy her own space away from the other animals-if they were too much, she would just take herself off to her kennel. Moss seems to prefer female humans, she is can be very nervous around new men. She doesn’t have any re-call at the moment, she had free run on the farm but kept running away back to her kennel. Moss has been on a lead and although she doesn’t pull that much, she will need some encouragement in this area.

History

Moss has lived in her last home for 6 months, she was bought as a working farm dog but she doesn’t have any interest in working.

Re-homing Criteria

Moss needs a calm home. She will need time to adapt into a house dog. She can be upset by loud or sudden noises so she may find a town environment too much. Her last home had 4 older children who she was good with but she hasn’t met younger children and loud noises scare her

Squeak is a friendly terrier who has a real affectionate side. She is lively and loves attention. Squeak is strong on lead and would benefit from further training. She does not always like dogs in her space and she is a food guarder.

We are told she has met cats briefly a while ago. Squeak will make a great companion as she has so much love to give!
