Buddy Buddy Buddy

Buddy * Reserved * 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.

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!

For rehoming to be possible, you must reside within the Dumfries & Galloway region whilst restrictions are still in place.

Skye is a sweet girl who loves attention.  She has never lived with children before but can be quite OTT so we won't rehome Skye with children under the age of ten.  She lived with a cat in her previous home but has been reactive towards other dogs here at the centre.  Skye would be looking for a home where she would be the only pet.  Skye is housetrained and has been used to being left alone for a couple of hours.  She loves her walks but can pull strongly on the lead and is uncomfortable with traffic.  Skye isn't used to travelling in the car and has been noisy on the few occasions that she needed to travel.

History

Skye is looking for a new home due to her owner's ill health.

Re-homing Criteria

Skye is looking for an active home with no other pets.  She is uncomfortable being walked in areas busy with traffic so we will be looking for a home in a quieter area.  It is possible for Skye to be rehomed with children over the age of 10.

Rebel is overweight at the moment,  any new potential owners will need to continue his weight loss programme.

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

For rehoming to be possible, you must reside within the Dumfries & Galloway region whilst restrictions are still in place.

SMALL, SWEET, GENTLE LITTLE GIRL.

Suki is small in size but has a lot of love to give.

She loves her home comforts and would enjoy cosying up on a sofa with you. She is a very quite dog in the home environment, liking nothing more than spending time with the people in her life.

She loves to be groomed and pampered, enjoys being out for a wander and a run around, albeit she's no Kelly Holmes!

She is very well behaved so has had some training in her past.

History

Suki came to us as she had a fall out with the resident cat.

Re-homing Criteria

Suki is looking for a quieter home life where she is someone's centre of attention. Suki would be happy to be left while her new person/s worked part time, but would be just as happy if there were around all the time.

Suki really isn't keen on her own kind, much preferring the company of humans. Because of this Suki would need to be the only pet in the household.

We feel that children under 10yrs would be too much for Suki, so an older family, couple or person would be best. If you are planning a family or other pets in the future Suki is not the dog for you.Homefinder Questionnaire

For rehoming to be possible, you must reside within the Dumfries & Galloway region whilst restrictions are still in place.

ENERGETIC, HAPPY, FUN LOVING GIRLIE!

Rocksie loves life!

She is always pleased to see you, and enjoys a good cuddle. She likes nothing more than a good frolic in the paddock with some of her doggie pals, but is also more than happy to give lots of affection to her carer.

We have found her to be a happy go lucky dog where not much phases her. Exercise is on the top of her list of likes, she loves to run and sniff but is always happy to come back when called.

History

Rocksie has found her self at the centre as her and the other dog in the home didn't see eye to eye.

Re-homing Criteria

Rocksies' new home will need to be a energetic family. A family that won't let the Scottish weather put them off a good hike!

The breeds that make up Rocksie don't tire easily. Please only apply if your family are the outdoors type that are rarely home and would like to take a dog along too.

She would happily live with children of 10yrs plus as she can be a bit over enthusiastic at times and may knock younger children over.  We can imagine her playing ball and rough and tumble with a couple of children. And if there was a dog friendly established male dog already in residence, Rocksie would love a canine play mate too.

Although Rocksie can be left home alone for short periods, she would like someone to be with her a good proportion of the day.

Rocksie is ready to find a family to call her own.

Sweet natured shy loving boy

Bailey is a loving Young boy and at 10 months is eager to learn and please, He hasn’t seen much of life so can be a little timed experiencing thing for the first time. He is eager to meet and greet new people but is conflicted due to his lack of life experiences. This collie is smashing boy with so much to give and a delight to train.

History

Sadly, this boy despite being in a loving home, his previous owners were unable to meet his needs.

Re-homing Criteria

Bailey ideally needs a collie experienced home where he can be nurtured and understood enabling him to enjoy the rest of his life with confidence. Bailey could potentially benefit from a calm and established dog already settled in the household.

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

For rehoming to be possible, you must reside within the Dumfries & Galloway region whilst restrictions are still in place.

DISTINGUISHED OLDER GENT

Paddy's world has been turned upside down, but he has shown great tenacity in the face of it all. Despite the recent changes to his life he hasn't let this get him down and we have found him to be a friendly, happy chap with a zest for life.

Don't be fooled by his age, he loves his walks and free running in our paddock. He's happy to meet other dogs on a walk, but has never lived with another dog.

He likes being groomed and he travels well in the car, and enjoys a cuddle on the sofa.

He has been examined by our vet who has found him to be in good health for his age, with no ongoing health conditions.
History

Paddy has found himself looking for a new home after he could not cope, at his age, with a very over enthusiastic toddler that visited daily.

Re-homing Criteria

We can see Paddy living in the countryside, taking daily strolls with devoted owners who will happily love and care for him for the rest of his life.

However we feel a quieter home would be best for Paddy without resident children, although visiting older children would be fine.

Paddy is used to being home alone for a few hours.

For rehoming to be possible, you must reside within the Dumfries & Galloway region whilst restrictions are still in place.

INDEPENDENT, BUT AFFECTIONATE CHAP!

Bailey's previous owners allowed him to rule the roost, which he did happily! Because of this Bailey didn't understand 'boundaries' and what was expected of him.

He does like to get his own way, but we have found that he will accept boundaries and instruction. This will need to be continued in his new home. His behaviour is quite typical of a small dog breed who has had no guidance.

He enjoys the company of other dogs whether they be big or small, he has made friends with our gentle giant Scooby.

History

Having lived in his previous home for the last 7yrs his owners came to the very hard decision to let him go, as they could no longer cope with his unwanted  behaviour, their working hours had also been extended.

Re-homing Criteria

Ideally Bailey needs a confident owner that has had previous experience dealing with dogs that guard belongings that they believe are theirs.

These are the traits that Bailey displayed in his previous home, but we have to say that with the right guidance we feel this should not develop to such an extent with  his new owner.

Once Bailey has the right direction in his life, he will be an absolute joy to have around.

Bailey would suit a quieter home with or without older children. He has never met cats in his previous home but due to him being smaller than the average cat we would not rule living with a cat out, however introductions would need to be made.
