Name: Marley
D.O.B: 10/01/2024
Gender: Male (not yet neutered)
Breed: Mixed
Size: Large
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Meet Marley! This little poppet was found abandoned in a cardboard box and taken in by the lovely rescuer we work with in Romania. As he was such a baby when he was rescued, she found him a foster place as she didn’t want to take him to the shelter at such a young age. Sadly, as he got bigger the fosterer's little dog took a dislike to him and he had to be moved to the shelter. Obviously, having lived in a home, the move was very difficult for him and we had to do something about that... so we managed to get him a place with 3 other dogs we had travelling and I’m so glad we did as he is an absolute delight! Marley is now 5 months old and already weighs 16 kilos, so is going to be a big boy when he is grown up, but his temperament is amazing. He is like a little bear cub and just loves attention … Any attention !!! He has quickly become a firm favourite with the volunteers and has already made lots of doggy pals at the rescue. Marley has a full EU passport, is microchipped, fully vaccinated and has been tested for brucellosis in the UK. He will need basic training, but he has the most wonderful nature, which is something you cannot teach. He is not yet neutered as, with a dog of his size, he needs to be 18-24 months before this is done as he needs his testosterone to become a big strong boy. If you are able to give Marley the home he deserves please pop on to our website (www.https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org) and complete 'pre-adoption' application form.

Name: Ollie
D.O.B: 01/05/2020
Gender: Male (neutered)
Breed: Mixed
Size: Medium tall)
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Ollie came to us as rescue back up after seeing an appeal as he was passing between foster homes (5 different homes in 7 months) and he needed some stability.

Ollie is just the most amazing dog ever! He adores everyone from the second he meets them and is a big snuggle-bug. He just wants to share all his love and attention with everyone he meets. Ollie is known as the ‘Puppy Godfather’ as he is the first dog to greet and welcome new arrivals to the rescue to show them the ropes. He gets on well with new dogs/puppies of any age and is always ready to go make friends with them. Ollie is house, crate and lead trained and is so ready to have his own family to shower with love.

Ollie is the absolute best dog around other dogs when he is off the lead. He is quite submissive, so when he is on a lead he gets fearful and this has led to reactivity to other dogs whilst on-lead. Ollie has worked on this previously, with good progress, but would need a family who are willing to continue to work on this with him to help him get over his fear.

Ollie LOVES other dogs and would be over the moon to live in a house with another dog. Due to Ollie’s submissive nature, he would not fare well in a home with a dominant dog, but would love to live with a young and playful doggo (any size) who he could be best friends for live with! Ollie has not been cat tested and would be best in a child-free home.

As Ollie has been to-and-fro quite a lot over his short life we want to make sure this time is forever. We would therefore like him to have several meet-and-greets to make sure of this, and therefore potential adopters would ideally be placed within easy travelling distance of our rescue in Ayr, Scotland.

If you think you could be the family Ollie has been waiting patiently for, please complete a pre-adoption application form at the link below.

Name: Baxter
D.O.B: 10/11/2023
Gender: Male (Not yet neutered, due to age)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Baxter was one of 7 siblings pulled from a dumpster in Romania on 23rd December just hours from death. They were all wet, freezing and starving and very sadly one puppy didn’t make it. The remaining 6 pups were reserved by SRS, taken into foster care and prepared to travel … Now in the UK these puppies are beyond delightful and some of the most stunning looking puppies we have ever rescued! After all they have been through in their short lives, you would think that they would be a little wary of people, but on the contrary they actually love people and will take any attention thrown their way!

Baxter is one of the 5 brothers in the litter and is just full of mischief. He is very playful, gentle and loving and will make an amazing addition to many different homes. He is crate trained and housetrained, but will need some work with his basic training, but his willingness to please should mean he’s a quick learner!

As Baxter will still have some growing to do, we don’t know exactly what sort of size he will be but expect him to be about the size of a small German Shepherd when fully grown.

If you think you may have a place in your home and heart for this beautiful little boy please pop on to our website and complete a 'pre-adoption application form' (Link: https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form )

Name: Violet
D.O.B: 01/07/2021
Gender: Female (neutered and fully vaccinated)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland


Violet came into our care as Rescue Back-up when she unexpectedly delivered 6 puppies on her new adopter's kitchen floor. Her new mum couldn’t take care of her and her puppies so they all travelled from Worcestershire to Ayr into our rescue. Violet's puppies have all been rehomed and we would now love for her to find a home of her own too!

Violet absolutely loves everyone from the second she sees them and is very good at meeting new people. When our volunteers go in to see her (even if she hasn’t met them before), Violet goes straight up to make friends and have a cuddle! She is good pals with all the dogs in her zone of the shelter and loves to spend her time playing with them (and her boyfriend, Bruno!).

After all that she has been through we believe that this lovely lady deserves a family of her own where she can get lots of love and attention and she will be your best friend. Violet is a small to medium sized dog and weighs in at about 16 kilos.

If you think you have room in your heart and home for this amazing affectionate dog, please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form.

Name: Juna
D.O.B: 03/05/2023
Gender: Female (neutered and fully vaccinated)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Juna is one of two siblings we were asked to take on as their rescuer could not find any other solution for them. They are now nearly 10 months old and before coming to SRS lived their whole life (since being rescued as tiny babies) in a stable and are desperately needing their freedom and a family to call their own. These lovely sisters were dumped in a forest with their other siblings and whereas the other pups were all adopted, Jura and Fina did not get any interest as they were the largest of the litter which is such as shame as they are beautiful dogs. Since being with SRS they have enjoyed spending time with the other dogs in our care, especially Rory who can match them in size. They are typical playful pups who are looking for families willing to put in the work and training they will need including lead, house and recall training. They enjoy living with other dogs but have not been tested with cats. The girls have had no training and do not currently walk on a lead, so direct access to a secure garden where work can be done on this is essential. Applicants must have secure gardens (at least 5 ft fences/walls) and no small children due to their large size. We want them to have a life of fun and adventures with a family who will love them completely.

If you are interested in adopting Juna please complete an adoption form at the link below. Homecheck and adoption donation of £500 applies. Thank you xx https://www.savingandrehomingstrays.org/dog-application-form

Name: Travis
D.O.B: 30/10/2017
Gender: Male
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Travis is a mixed breed (we think with some GSD) from Romania born on the 30 Oct 2017 and came into rescue along with his 2 siblings and has not been rehomed with them yet due to his disability. He has been with us in the UK since May 2018 and now we would love to find a very special home for this very special boy.
Travis was born with issues in his hips and the many vets in Romania diagnosed many different things but it was only when he came into our care and seeing our vets (and having more X-Rays) that we confirmed a diagnosis.

Travis does not have any hip sockets – they never formed. So his hips do not stay in place and move about which he moves. He has never needed any pain relief and is a strong dog and copes very well and isn’t in any pain. Initially our vets said he should be PTS but after seeing him playing very happily, in no pain and with the strength that he has in his front end he agreed he has a great quality of life and deserves a chance to live it to the full. He loves running round the garden and playing so needs a nice big garden and lots of space. We do need his home to have an understanding vet who is willing to work with us if necessary for any decisions on his future treatment and this would be part of our adoption contract.
Fabulous with other dogs especially boy dogs. He loves to play out with the boys.
Travis can be a funny with new people and can be a bit barky. It doesn’t take him long to warm up and we think it’s a bit of territory guarding as he is fine when out and about.

Travis walks fine on a lead and travels well in the car and has been well behaved at the groomers.

Travis would be perfectly happy in a home where he never goes for a walk as long as he has a big garden to run around and people to give him love and attention. He is a very sweet soul.

If you this you can offer Travis the extra special home and family he needs we would really like to hear from you. Please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Name: Zara
D.O.B: 27/06/2019
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Zara is a pure bred GSD bread in Romania born on the 27 June 2019 and came into rescue due to her disability. She has been with us in the UK since November 2019 and now we would love to find a very special home for this very special girl.
Zara was born with issues in her hips and the many vets in Romania diagnosed many different things but it was only when she came into our care and seeing our vets (and having more Xrays) that we confirmed that she has the same issues as one of our other wonky dogs.

Zaras hip and ball joints did not form properly so do not stay in place so they move about which she moves. Even though Zara is quite long and tall she still copes well and isn’t in any pain. She loves running round the garden and playing so needs a nice big garden and lots of space. We do have some wheels that can fit her, however as she isn’t actually paralysed her back legs don’t bend and they point forward so don’t work well in a typical cart but there may be different options that can be explored. We do need her home to have an understanding vet who is willing to work with us if necessary for any decisions on her future treatment.

Zara adores loves everybody. She gets on great with most dogs especially little dogs and could potentially live with another small dog. She is not as happy with bigger dogs and can sometimes growl and snap but will never start a fight. She could also live with children and she is a lovely soul.

Zara does have a sensitive stomach which is a common problem in GSDs. She has had lots of tests and there is nothing wrong but it can be a problem keeping weight on her as she doesn’t process food properly. She is on a special diet and takes probiotics at the moment and we are also about to try her on a raw diet to see if this helps. As a result she is skinny. This is a balance for Zara as being lighter helps her get about and having too much weight on her may limit her mobility. Zara is booked in for a dental cleaning later this month as she does have a tendency to hoover up food and sometimes a bit of poop!

Zara is fine on a lead, travels great in the car and happy at the groomers.
Zara would be perfectly happy in a home where she never goes for a walk as long as she has a big garden to run around and people to give her love and attention. She will sit and ask for attention as she loves a cuddle.

If you this you can offer Zara the extra special home and family she needs we would really like to hear from you. Please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Tessa and Tosca at the Saving and Rehoming Strays

Tessa and Tosca at the Saving and Rehoming Strays

Contact Shelter Adoption Form More Shelter Pets

Names: Tessa & Tosca
D.O.B: 20/06/2018
Gender: Female (neutered)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland

Please note that Tessa & Tosca must live in a child free, pet free and dog free home and would ideally be rehomed together.

Tessa and Tosca were in a shelter together for 3 years before coming under our care. During that time they were well cared for, but did not receive as much human attention as they perhaps needed. As a results they came to us as very timid pups and have both been adopted separately and come back to us as they were too timid apart to live in a home. We would therefore love to see these girls adopted together as they rely on each other for their confidence. At the rescue they enjoy playing, sleeping and cuddling. Tessa and Tosca have done a little lead training at the rescue, but we would need a family willing to put in the time and effort to gain their trust and work on their training slowly and with our support. We know it’s a big ask to find these two a home together, but we like to dream big for our dogs. If you have the time, patience and love for these girls please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form.

Name: Mischu
D.O.B: 01/05/2012
Gender: Male (neutered)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland


Please note Mischu must live in a dog and pet free home.

Mischu came to us with his sister Iza after spending 8 years in a shelter with very little human socialisation. When they came to us they were very scared and shy dogs. He is very bonded with his sister, but isn’t keen on other dogs so if they are rehomed separately it needs to be into a pet and dog free home. When they arrived they were both very scared of everything, but over time have relaxed into life here and become firm favourites with our volunteers. Mischu is the most confident of the two, but his little sister Iza definitely wears the pants in their relationship. Mischu loves doing the zoomies, snoozing, food and a cuddle. He will need work on lead training so his family will need a secure home and garden to begin his training. If you can offer him love, comfort and patience we would really like to hear from you. Please pop onto our website at www.savingandrehomingstrays.org and complete an application form. Please note a home check and adoption donation will apply x

Name: Iza
D.O.B: 01/05/2012
Gender: Female (neutered)
Breed: Mixed
Location: Ayr, Scotland


Please note, Iza must live in a dog and pet free home.

Before coming into our rescue Iza had spent her entire life living in a shelter. She had been rescued as a puppy (along with her brother) by a well-meaning rescuer, but 8 years later was still sitting in a pen having never known much social interaction. As a result she arrived with us as a very timid little thing. Over time her confidence has grown and she is now an absolute delight. She loves a good fuss and cuddle and despite being much smaller than her brother, she definitely is the boss out of the two. She is a friendly lady and is happy with new people pretty quickly after being introduced and she really loves to snuggle. She will need work on lead training so her family will need a secure home and garden to begin her training. If you can offer her love, comfort and patience we would really like to hear from you.
