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 Female Black and White Whippet cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is age 1 year 5 months

Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/068
Approx Age: 1 year, 5 months

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.

History

Bell came into the centre with her mum Cleo, after an incident with a cat which unfortunately didn’t survive. She is the more timid of the two.

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. She will need an owner who can dedicate time to training and socialising.

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.

Millie Millie Millie

Millie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Fawn Akita cross who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/093
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

This gorgeous girl is called Millie, she loves attention and a bit of a fuss made. She is a friendly girl but not overly keen on close handling until she gets to know you. Here at the kennels she seems fine to walk past other dogs but isn’t happy with them being in her space. We are unsure of how she would react to cats but we know she isn’t good with livestock and would probably be too full on for a home with young children. Millie tends to keep her kennel clean which would suggest she is house trained, she copes ok at the vets and walks well on the lead for the most part but can be very strong when she does pull.

History

Millie was brought to us as a stray so unfortunately we don’t have any history on her.

Re-homing Criteria

We know she has attacked a sheep before so she defiantly needs to go to an urban home and we are looking for somewhere out of Dumfries and Galloway. Millie will need an owner with an understanding of the breed and plenty time to dedicate to her. She is looking for a home where she can be the only dog and without young children.

A Male Black Labrador cross Rottweiler who is age 3 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/121
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

When he first arrived Nanuke was very nervous and afraid of us all, however as a few days passed he has grown in confidence and to those he now knows is very friendly.  He is quite needy and likes to be close and cuddled, so much so you can have a large dog attempting to sit on your knee like a small lapdog.  He was good with visiting children in his previous home and not bothered with cats.  He is normally friendly with other dogs, but has been known to snap if they are too much for him.  He is house trained and likes to have the radio playing music left on when alone.  He has not had much experience travelling by car and has been known to be sick at times when he has. Nanuke loves to play fetch and go swimming.

History

Nanuke or Nookie as he seems to prefer was brought to us for re-homing as his owners work hours had greatly increased and he was being left alone for 12 hours every day

Re-homing Criteria

Nanuke needs a home where in the early stages he is allowed to settle in gradually and not forced into anything until he has gained trust in those around him.  Someone who has dealt with a nervous dog before would be ideal.  He is a lovely boy and just needs some understanding to let him flourish.

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/069
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Toby is a very friendly boy who loves attention. He is affectionate and playful and loves his toys. He has been used to a 5-year-old who we are told he was good with, however he is very bouncy and gets overexcited so we would recommend a home without small children. Toby is quite strong on lead and will need help with his recall training. He loves company and enjoys cuddling up with you on the sofa or in bed. He can be vocal when on his own or when he gets excited. We are told he has lived with a cat, but like all dogs, introductions to new animals takes time and must be done with caution. Toby has histiocytic colitis which we have been trying to get under control through different medication and food. Finally, we are hopeful we are able to manage it and his symptoms have improved.

History

Toby was handed in for rehoming due to his owner’s ill health and having to leave him whilst they were at the hospital. Neighbours complained that he barked when he was left on his own so he was handed in.

Re-homing Criteria

Toby is on treatment for his colitis which will most likely be on going. As this may be likely to put adopters off, we will be making him one of our sponsor dogs.

Shug Shug Shug

A Male White and Tan Jack Russell Terrier cross who is age < 1 year

Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/064
Approx Age: < 1 year

Description

Shug is a typical young Jack Russel.  He loves to play but can be very over the top with other dogs some of whom will not accept this behaviour. His previous owner said he was great with children including a baby. However, as he is an adolescent male, full of energy, we recommend careful introductions to any new children. He has been house trained and also crate trained which would give peace of mind to any possible adopter having to leave him on his own for short periods, as young dogs can chew.  He has no experience of cats but it is known he will chase small furry animals.  Shug has a good recall but requires some lead work and focus training as he is reactive when he sees other dogs. This can be overcome with consistent, \look at me\ training where he is taught to focus his attention on his owner and rewarded for doing so. If we teach him an alternative to barking and reinforce this, he will learn what is an appropriate behaviour

History

Shug has been brought along to us for rehoming as he was not getting on with the older dog already in the home. He was adopted for a brief amount of time but unfortunately his adopters felt they could not commit to his further training.

Re-homing Criteria

Shug requires a patient owner who understands the needs of an energetic, adolescent terrier. He is looking for guidance when out on walks as he is can become frustrated on lead. Shug needs a committed owner who can invest lots of one to one training and understands it take time and lots of patience!

Not Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19.052
Approx Age: 1 year, 4 months

Description

Max is a nervous boy who needs his space. He is not keen on close contact but is coming on with his touch training. Max has not been used to new people so he needs time to adjust and feel comfortable with strangers. This handsome boy has come from a home where he was the only pet, however he met family members dogs who he was okay with. Max is strong on lead and prone to getting frustrated and bored easily. As he has come from working stock, he needs to be kept active. Max has a high chase instinct and will chase birds and cats. He has not lived wit other dogs but appears friendly to most he meets on walks.History

Max was brought in to us as his owner could not give him the stimulation he requires. He was adopted very briefly but his frustration on lead proved too much for his adopter. Max was barking at one of his adopter who was digging in the garden, in an attempt to stop his barking, his adopter started patting him and Max redirected and snapped at his owners hand.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for an owner who understands that Max will snap if he is not comfortable. When he is frustrated it is important not to try and touch him to calm him, as this can actually heighten his stress levels. resulting in a redirection bite (frustration displaced onto nearest person). He needs a patient, calm owner who will let him adjust in his own time and will help give him clear, consistent guidance using reward based training. His new owner will need to continue his touch training following the guidance we provide. Max needs a home without children or cats. He would suit a rural home and an owner who has lots of time to help him learn and feel relaxed.

Reference: 19.139
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

This gorgeous boy is called Jax, he is full of life and has endless amounts of energy. He has a very sweet nature but as Jax has come from a farm where he has been kennelled outside he does lack his basic training, like house training. Jax seems friendly towards other dogs and has previously lived with other farm dogs quite happily. He has no experience with cats so we are unsure how he would react to them and we are told he has no interest in livestock. At the farm he has had brief encounters with children and has been ok with them but he has never lived with them. He is a very friendly, bouncy boy but can be timid on first meeting, he is under socialised and is not use to busy places or new areas. Jax doesn’t have a lot of experience traveling in the car or on the lead, his recall is ok but could use some work.

Bruiser is a sweetheart! He loves company and enjoys a good long walk. In his previous home he lived with a 9-year-old child and was good with them, he has lived with a Jack Russell before and mixes well with dogs here at the kennels however we are unsure how he would react to a cat.
