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.

Davy Davy Davy

Davy * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Patterdale

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/082

Description

Davy is a lively young terrier who likes everyone he meets. He enjoys his walks and appears friendly towards most other dogs. As he is a stray we have not history on what he has been used to before he came into us. He isn't clean in his kennels so far, so he may not be house trained, although it is hard for us to tell how he would be in the house as we have not known him long at all. Davy was a good boy seeing the vet and he has lots of energy and love to give.

History

Davy was found as a stray in the Stranraer area. He was not microchipped and had not I.D on him.

Re-homing Criteria

We are unsure how Davy would be to live with other animals. He appears friendly towards most dogs he sees here, but we don't know if he would chase small furry animals or not.

Homefinder Questionnaire

If you'd like to help rehome Davy simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.

A Female Cream Husky cross Akita who is age 1 year 6 months

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/096
Approx Age: 1 year, 6 months

Description

Luna can be nervous of new people, but she is very affectionate (sometimes clingy) when she knows you. She is also aloof at times and does a very good impression of a ‘stubborn person’. Luna needs to go back to basics but with the combination of treats, praise and her clever brain she will be top of the class in no time. She isn’t keen to be on her own and will need patience to help overcome this. With the right amount of mental stimulation and exercise she will be a settled and relaxed girl. Luna is house trained and travels well in the car.

History

Luna’s previous owner’s felt they couldn’t give her the right exercise and life that she needs.

Re-homing Criteria

Luna is a big young girl who needs a confident and mindful owner. She needs a patient owner who has time to exercise and train her. Luna needs a home without cats or young children. She did live with another dog without any issues, but she does like her own space and belongings.

Ziggy Ziggy Ziggy

Ziggy * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Cocker Spaniel who is age 1 year 3 months

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/107
Approx Age: 1 year, 3 months

Description

Ziggy lived with children in his previous home aged from 4 to 12 years old. We have been told there was an incident involving young children while Ziggy was visiting them at their home. Due to this, we will not rehome Ziggy to a home with children or visiting children. Ziggy appears to be friendly towards other dogs but can be quite full on with smaller dogs. He has never lived with other pets before, so we are unsure of how he would be with cats. Ziggy is still a young boy and requires further training, he has been known to chew blankets and beds and is very strong on the lead. His recall is good unless he is distracted, we have been told he cannot be trusted around livestock when off lead. Ziggy is crate trained and travels in his crate in the car. He isn’t used to being left alone so would prefer a home where someone is home most of the time. Ziggy is very clever and knows basic commands, he is also house trained. In the correct home environment, we feel that Ziggy will make an excellent companion.

History

Ziggy was brought into the centre for rehoming because of an incident involving young children while visiting them at their home.

Re-homing Criteria

Ziggy needs a home with no children and no visiting children. He needs an active home with an owner who is willing to commit to further training. As he is very affectionate, he may prefer a home where he isn’t left for long periods of time.

Eddie Eddie Eddie

Eddie * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Silver and Cream Crossbreed who is age 4 years

Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/115
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

Eddie is a very playful boy who is used to living with children from the age of 4 and upwards. He has experience living with other dogs but is protective over his food so would probably do well living as an only dog. Eddie has no experience with cats. He walks well on the lead but has no traffic sense and is distracted easily so his recall will need some work. Eddie becomes very anxious when left alone and has been known to be destructive so will need a home with someone there most of the time. He is not 100% house trained so this will need to be worked on in his new home. We have been told that he is an escape artist and can squeeze under baby gates and climb fences. He usually travels in the car behind a dog guard, but he seems very anxious while traveling. Eddie needs regular grooming due to his long coat and we have been told he is ok with his regular groomer.

History

Eddie was brought into the centre for rehoming because he was causing damage when left alone due to his separation issues.

Re-homing Criteria

Eddie needs a home with constant companionship due to his separation anxiety. He is known to be destructive when left alone so we will not rehome Eddie where he will be left for extended periods of time.  He will need time and patience to help build his confidence.

Roxy Roxy Roxy

Roxy at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel who is age 11 years

Good With Children Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.097
Approx Age: 11 years

Description

Roxy is a lovely old girl who we are looking to re-home on our supported adoption scheme.  She does have a few health issues but still enjoys plenty of attention and playing with her ball.  She has been fostered recently by one of our board members but doesn't get on great with her other dogs.  She has given us the following information,  '' We have been fostering Roxy for several weeks now and she is a lovely, friendly girl who craves affection.  She is 11 years old and because of her health issues (chronic kidney disease and severe anaemia),is looking for a lovely home where she will be cared for to the end of her days.  She is friendly with all dogs when out and about, but I think she would be happiest in a quiet home with a human or two to absolutely dote on her.  Looks can be deciving, as can actions, and Roxy looks like a mad young spanielwho never sits still.  However, because of her anaemia she does tire very quickly and the vet has advised only limited exercise and short walks,  Roxy is a complete ball obsessive but we limit her access to her ball and indeed, only allow her to have it on her short walks.

Roxy is biddable, her re-call is good and she knows sit and wait.  She can be tricky to groom as she is such a fidget.  She can sometimes be noisy and show separation anxiety if she knows you are in a different part of the house or garden, however she is quiet at night and when you leave the house.  Roxy has to have daily medication and frequent vet check-ups, so for this reason she will be supported financially.  She has special dietary requirements- at the moment I cook her chicken and rice and she has Royal Canin Renal Food.  She has a good appetite however and is no problem to give meds.

We shall miss her, but just want the best for this sweet girl for the time she has left.''

History

Unfortunately due to ill health Roxy's owner has had to reluctantly bring her to us for re-homing

Re-homing Criteria

A quiet home where Roxy will very seldom be left alone.  Prospective adopters also need to be aware that we don't know how long she has left, and be able to cope with this when it finally comes
