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.

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.240
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Brutus is a very BIG, strong and playful boy who loves attention. He has met young children in the past and been fine with them however he can be very full on so unfortunately, we won’t be rehoming him to a house with small children. He doesn’t like cats and he has never shared his space with other dogs, so we are unsure of how he would act around them. Brutus is house trained but can have the odd accident in new surroundings. He copes ok with visits to the vets and is happy with handling and meeting new people. Brutus can be very vocal when on his own or in busy environments.

History

Sadly, His previous owner passed away, so the family made the hard decision to have him rehomed.

Re-homing Criteria

Brutus is looking for an active home where he will get lots of help with his training and further socialising. He will need a home without young children and preferably without other pets. Somebody with breed experience would be preferred.

Harp Harp Harp

Harp * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black and White Collie cross who is age 1 year 3 months

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: 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.

Lackie Lackie Lackie

Lackie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Labrador cross who is age 8 years

Good With Children Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/263
Approx Age: 8 years

Description

Once Lackie knows you he can be very affectionate. He does however let you know when he wants his space from interaction, especially if he has his favourite toy. Lackie loves to play ball and enjoys his walks and running in the paddock. Despite the fact he only has 3 legs this does not hinder him and he is able to zoom about without difficulty. Lackie has lived with children aged 2, 5 and 8 years old previously who we are told he was fine with. He does however need his space when he has toys and is very greedy with food so this must be considered if he was to be around children again. Lackie is house trained and knows basic commands. He has lived with another dog at one stage in his history who he was okay with, however he can be reactive to some new dogs. Lackie also shared his home with a cat and a rabbit.

History

Lackie was brought into us as his owner could not afford his medical treatment.

Re-homing Criteria

Lackie has an ongoing skin condition which is able to be managed. Since coming into the centre he has responded well to the treatment we have given him. We have seen a vast improvement in his skin due to medicated shampoo, prednisolone  tablets and hypoallergenic food as well as ear drops. The quantity of medication and frequencey of his medication has been reduced as he has responded well, however future adopters must consider that this will need to be monitiored and will be ongoing.

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

Reference: 19/040
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

This lovely girl is called Floss. She is very sweet and loves human company. Her previous owner told us she hasn’t lived with young children but always greeted them in a friendly manner.  Her recall is good but does tend to pull a little when on the lead. Floss is completely uninterested in livestock; we are unsure of how she would act around cats but does seem friendly towards other dogs. She came to the Centre with another Collie who she was happy sharing her space with. Floss can be quite nervous in the vets but doesn’t show any aggression. She was kept in a kennel in her previous home so will need help with house training.

History

Floss was brought in to the Centre as she was from a farm but had no interest in working.

Re-homing Criteria

Floss is looking for a home where she can get plenty exercise and mental stimulation. As she has come from a rural home she will need an owner who is willing to commit to further socialising and training.

Rolo Rolo

Rolo at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Border Collie who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/035
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Rolo can be a timid girl but is friendly once she gets to know you.  She came in with Dice who she seemed to get on well with but we have found that she isn’t great with female dogs here at the centre.  Rolo has met young children before (5 years and 3 years) and she was fine with them but she has no experience living with children.  Rolo has always been kept outside, we believe that she has never lived inside before so she will require some house training.  She lacks basic training and can be quite scatty on the lead.  Rolo hasn’t had much experience travelling in the car but seemed to be okay travelling to the centre.  We don’t have an exact date of birth for Rolo but we believe she is 2-4 years old.

History

Rolo was handed in for rehoming because her owner didn’t have enough time for her.

Re-homing Criteria

Rolo requires a home with owner who is willing to commit to further training and socialising her.  We don’t believe that Rolo has ever lived indoors so it may take time for her to adjust.

Reference: 19/048
Approx Age: < 1 year

Description

Ben is a handsome young boy.  He comes from a farm and is under socialised so he can be very nervous when he’s out.  Going forward, Ben will need a patient owner who can help him gain his confidence.  He will require a quiet, rural home with no young children.  He has mixed well with small dogs in the past and didn’t seem interested in the cats that were on the farm.  Ben has no experience living indoors so he hasn’t been housetrained.  It may take Ben some time to adjust to living indoors.  He travels well in the car and has good recall.

Akamaru Akamaru Akamaru

Akamaru * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male silver and white Husky

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/034

Description

Akamaru is a big beautiful boy with lots of energy. He can be very aloof with strangers and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. He has never lived with children and given the fact that he is uncomfortable with new people in his space, we would not recommend him sharing his space with young infants. Akamaru loves his toys and walks. He is very strong on lead and will need an owner who has experience  with the breed. We are told Akamaru has lived with cats who he wasn't phased by, however we are also told that he can be aggressive towards new cats out and about. He is friendly towards dogs he meets, but may be a bit too full on for small breeds.

History

Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house.

Re-homing Criteria

Akamaru needs an owner who knows he is not comfortable with new people. He is very active and requires lots of exercise and further training. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young chidlren.

Nessie Nessie Nessie

Nessie * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Fawn Bull Lurcher

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/041

Description

Poor Nessie looks like she has been through the wars a little. She has several scars on her face and body which we suspect these may have been from other animals that she has been bred to chase. She is poor condition and is undergoing some TLC to try and make her feel more comfortable. Nessie travelled over in the van from Stranraer and was quiet throughout the journey. We have no history on whether she has met children before. Nessie ignores most dogs here at the centre. She is timid and wary of sudden movements but with a gentle, patient approach she enjoys attention. She loves her food and is fairly quiet and settled in the kennels. We suspect she is not house trained as she does not look like she has been well looked after going by her scars and poor condition.

History

Nessie was found running loose on the road and handed into Newton Stewart Police Station. She was not micro chipped and not wearing any form of ID Tag.

Re-homing Criteria

Nessie will need a quiet home with an owner who knows she is timid and will need time to adjust. We think she will most likely be predatory towards small wildlife. We would suggest an adult only home as she is nervous.

Sasha 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 2 years. 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, she will chase cats and can be very ott with children.

Bella loves her toys and is very playful, she now knows some basic commands, she is improving on the harness but she is a very strong and is not for the faint hearted!

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for a home with owners who understand the breed traits of German/Belgian Shepherds. Sasha is very strong, and active.

Thelma is a lovely little dog when it comes to meeting new people.  She loves attention and interaction but can be timid in new surroundings. This lovely girl did go home for a few weeks but had to be returned as she wasn't keen on sharing her space with young children, she did however get on really well with a cat that lived nearby and mixed well with other dogs. Her previous owner told us she tended to cry when left alone but was fine when she had company. Thelma is good on the lead and has ok recall, this will need a little more work. She travelled well in the van on the trip from Northern Ireland.  We believe that Thelma is 5-8 years old.

History

Thelma was rescued from Northern Ireland. She did go home for a few weeks but sadly had to be returned to us as she didn't like living with young children. She was then adopted for 2 days, however she was returned due to being noisy when left initially and due to ill health, her adopter was unable to give her what she needs.

Reference: 18/031
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Poppy is a delightful little lady once she gets to know you. She is full of beans and very bouncy! Poppy has lived with another dog however we are told they did not get on well. We have found her to get on well with some male dogs though. This lively lady loves being out in our paddock and zooming around. She does need a little help with recall when off lead though. Poppy can be feisty towards some new dogs she meets on lead. She is good in the car and has been clean in the house in her foster home. Poppy tends to jump up and nip when she is excited, so care must be taken if she is around children.  She has never encountered cats. Although we are told she does like children, we feel she is too much for them. Poppy doesn’t like to be left on her own and we are told she got anxious. She does feel secure in her crate though as this is her bed and secure space. This affectionate terrier has lots of love to give and is just looking for an owner to give her some one to one attention!

History

Poppy was brought in for rehoming as her and the other dog were not getting on. The owners also felt they could not give her the one to one attention she requires. She was adopted for a few months however due to ill health of her adopters, she was sadly returned.

Reference: 19.042
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Esme has spent most of her life on a farm, she lived on the farm with a lot of other collies but recently she has shown signs of preferring to have her own space. She hasn’t met cats or little children. Although she has only lived in a house for a few days, she picked up house training quickly and is almost 100% clean. She recently met hens and at first she was scared of them but she then ignored them, she was very interested in the sheep in the nearby fields but was always on lead. Esme is ok on the lead and walked beside the other dogs without any problems. She travelled in a crate but gets stressed in the car- not used to it. Her re-call is good, she is friendly with people and she has basic commands.

History

Esme was brought into the centre as she wasn’t interested in working on the farm. We rehomed her but she had to come back after a couple of days because she didn’t get on with the other dogs in the house.

Re-homing Criteria

During her few days in a home we have discovered that she is ok with the new dogs outside but didn’t like them when she was in the house. Esme needs a home where she can be giving the time and space to adapt into a pet dog. She is an active dog who enjoys her exercise.

Candy at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White Border Collie who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19.039
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Candy is very friendly girl who can be a little bit shy. She hasn’t been in a house as she was a farm dog who lived in a kennel. We feel that she will be easy to house train. On the farm she met children who she was friendly with, she ignores livestock and lived with other dogs.  At the kennel she seems to be better with male dogs than bitches. We don’t know how she is with cats. She travelled ok to the centre but hasn't had much experience in cars. Candy has good re-call. She is getting used to the lead but can still pull a little bit- she is better with a harness.

History

Candy came into the centre as a failed worker.

Re-homing Criteria

Candy will need some time to adjust to being a house dog, she will need some basic training and would benefit from having a home where she won’t be left on her own much until she gets the hang of it. Although she hasn’t lived with children she has been friendly with the ones she has met, she may be too shy for loud children/busy households.

Buster Buster Buster

Buster at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Brindle and White Terrier cross who is age 2 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: 19.053
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Buster is a very cheeky boy who likes things on his terms and is independent. He struggles with lots of ‘hands on’ attention but he is happy to come and get a fuss when he is in the mood. Buster is house trained and crate trained, he is ok to be left but he will bark. He travels in the car well.  Buster isn’t comfortable around children and has shown this by snapping. Although he can be grumpy meeting new dogs and strangers, he does have a very lovely side to him. He loves his walks.

History

Buster’s owner became ill and could no longer look after him, he went to live with family members but unfortunately he wasn’t comfortable living with their children and became grumpy. Buster was brought to the centre to find him a quieter home where he won’t get as stressed.

Re-homing Criteria

Buster needs a patient owner who is happy to let him come around in his own time. He will benefit from further training/socialising and desensitisation. A quieter home without children is a must for Buster. Although he can be very affectionate, he needs it to be at his pace as he gets overwhelmed quickly by too much handling. We have also been told that he will chase cats and birds, and we suspect he would chase livestock.
