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.

A magnificent Trio.

Dot (Female 10yrs) Domino (Male 10yrs) Nipper (Female 7yrs) A lively trio, who love to be together.

Love cuddles & belly rubs, all three strive for affection.

Well behaved on the lead but love to free run in our enclosed paddock, full of springer bounce & energy.  Great recall.

** Dot does a few health issues, however nothing that is unmanageable with treatment**

History

This trio came to us due to the owners ill health

Re-homing Criteria

During their stay with us, we have found that this trio are inseparable and therefore we are looking for a home where they can all stay together.  Any children in the home would need to be 10+. They would need to be the only pets as they can be reactive to other dogs & small furies.

Scooby 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

Scooby dooby doo!

Big Friendly Giant

Well like his name sake Scooby likes to think hes tough, but he is not as brave as he likes to think he is. This boy is beautiful inside and out.

He is a very affectionate goofy boy. He will sit on your lap, all 45kgs of him, if you let him. He loves fuss and attention. He really enjoys lazing on his bed in the sunshine, you could say he's a bit of a couch potatoe and will love it even more with his special person sitting by his side.

Could you be Scooby Doo's Shaggy, unlike the cartoon character you will need to be a confident person, Scooby needs a kind confident loving leader, so he can be the very best he can.

This boy has bags of potential, he is generally very laid back, but can be a little excitable at times, but is responding very well to training.History

Scooby came into the centre, having been found roaming the streets

Re-homing Criteria

Scooby requires a home with no small children, where he is the only pet and away from livestock. His adopters will need to be able to physically handle a strong dog and able to continue his training.

Milo Milo

Milo * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Collie cross Husky who is age 2years

Good With Children Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

FUN LOVING, ACTIVE, FAMILY BOY

Milo is a handsome blue eyed boy, full of energy and bags of love to give. He will happily spend hours playing ball or going for long country adventures, but he also appreciates the comforts of a cosy bed by the fire. He will make a super companion for an active family. Milo has obviously had training in the past as he is a well mannered boy.

History

Milo's previous home loved him dearly but due to a change in circumstance were unable to provide for Milo's exercise needs.

Re-homing Criteria

An active, outdoor family with time to give Milo the exercise that he requires. Milo needs to be included as one of the family as he thrives on human interaction and being part of the pack. He has previously lived with cats and another dog, however we feel that Milo may benefit as being the only dog. He has also lived with children 10yrs and over.

Misty and Alfie Misty and Alfie Misty and Alfie

Misty and Alfie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White and Tan Collie cross and Lab cross who is age 4years

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Active, fun, sensitive pair.

Misty and Alfie are loving, affectionate dogs looking for an active home together.

Misty is a neutered female Collie cross aged 4 years and Alfie is a male neutered Labrador cross aged 6 years.

These two are very different from each other. Alfie is the extrovert while Misty is the introvert. Alfie is happy to meet anyone, he's outgoing and bubbly. Misty on the other hand is the quieter of the pair, and is very cautious when meeting new people and going in to new situations. So together they are the perfect pair. Misty will take time to settle, and therefore we are looking for someone that has had dealings with shy, less confident dogs and understands that gaining her trust will take some time.

History

Very sadly their owner recently passed away, so they have found themselves looking for a new home together.

Re-homing Criteria

Misty and Alfie rely on each other and do get quite anxious when they are not together. This is why we feel that it is only fair to try and keep them together and find a home that will be willing to take them both on.

They need a quiet, understanding home. Someone who has dealt with nervous dogs before would be ideal.

A very secure garden area would be essential, so lead free exercise could take place safe in the knowledge that they couldn't escape.

They are very good around other dogs, so could possibly live with another dog or two assuming the meet and greet goes well. We have no idea what they are like with cats, but we could possibly look at introducing them to an existing cat.

As a quieter home is required for Misty, older teenage children would be best, along with someone who is at home most of the time.

Hutch

Hutch at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male red and white Staffordshire bull terrier who is age 4years

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Bouncy happy boy

Hutch is a loving boy who enjoys nothing better than to be with people and go for walks. Like any Staffy, he likes to sing for you and adores to be cuddled. He walks nicely on a harness although can be excited and a little strong when just setting out. He is a playful boy.

History

Hutch came in to us a stray.

Re-homing Criteria

Hutch will require an active home, ideally with experienced staffy owners, who can cater for his needs.

We have no information as to whether Hutch has had previous experience of living with children, therefore to be safe we would require any children in the house to be dog savvy, aged 10 or above. We feel he would be better as an only pet in the house.

A secure garden is a must, especially because of wandering tendencies. Ideally solid 5ft fencing or higher.

Cuddles Cuddles

Cuddles at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Cream Crossbreed who is age 11years

Not Good With Children Not Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Cheeky, Independent Chap

Cuddles is an 11yr old male neutered JRT cross Shih Tzu. When he came to us his coat was very matted so he has had a short back and sides!

He is cautious when he first meets you, but you can soon win him round with some tasty treats. It will take time for him to trust a new owner so they would need to be prepared to come to the centre a few times to meet him and spend time with him.

He loves a walk, and his preferred toy is a fluffy teddy bear. A cosy bed is a must for this boy, he loves his home comforts.

History

Cuddles came to us after his owner went in to care.

Re-homing Criteria

Cuddles would prefer a quite home as an only dog. A home with an older person/couple with no children under 16yrs.

We have no history of him living with a cat, so consideration would need to be given if you have a cat.

We feel Cuddles has had a difficult past, and this occasionally comes through in his behaviour. Therefore a patient, understanding home that will give him space when he needs it.

He has a lot of terrier breed traits, so a home with terrier experience would be preferred.
