New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue  - Finn

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue - Finn

Finn is described as a black Greyhound. Fantastic Finn Needs Your Help Finn finds himself looking for a new home through no fault of his own and after many years of happy retirement. Sadly his owners circumstances changed but he is a fantastic boy who will slip easily and deservingly into his new home. Finn was a racer but at 8 years old is fully enjoying his retirement and has lived with a girl greyhound companion until recently but could equally live happily as an only dog. Finn is not suitable for a home with cats or small furry companions. He is a big, handsome, black coated boy with gorgeous silvery highlights and the softest eyes. A new adopter should be prepared for Finn to take his time to get you know you gently and at his speed. But once he bonds, his affectionate and loyal side will be his greatest strength. Finn loves to lean on you and will come looking for ear rubs with joy. He is a fantastic companion and happy just to be with you in an undemanding way. Finn can be anxious in certain circumstances when out walking if approached suddenly by off lead dogs but has responded very well to calming training and should be allowed to mix with other dogs at his own pace. But he settles wonderfully with other dogs when politely introduced, happy to walk with dogs he knows and is very easy to handle on the lead. He is equally happy to visit a cafe or similar, will settle by your side and is delighted to receive a tasty treat. And Finn is very easily settled at home, loves a big cosy bed, is used to all the sights and sounds of home life like stairs and really loves his food. He will gently take his treats and is very adventurous with food, happy to have a raw or dry feed, loves extra vegetables as toppers and a special treat is always welcome. So please give us a call to meet the fantastic Finn, a steady boy with maturity and experience on his side and so much love to give in return.

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Moffat Dogs

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Moffat Dogs

Moffat Dogs is described as a black German Shepherd cross. The famous Moffat Dogs!! Finally after 6 months we feel these guys are ready to find their forever homes. A lot of work has gone into the 6 dogs that were picked up as strays near Moffat in July 2023. With the help of Dumfries & Galloway Police and Lee Heron, of Lost Dogs Dumfries and Galloway, these dogs have been given a second chance at life. It has been a huge challenge for such a small organisation to deal with 6 feral dogs all at the same time, a challenge many rescues would not have undertaken, but the team at the centre rose to the challenge and we now feel the time has come to look for new homes for them all. Due to the background of these dogs we will be looking for very specific homes, any applications received will be strongly vetted for suitability. Potential homes will need to have experience of under-socialised dogs, preferably large breeds, have a large fully enclosed garden with solid fencing of 6ft + as they have all attempted to clear our 7ft secure paddock fencing. Any potential homes will need to be extremely patient and understanding with their training going forward. We believe them to be around 2 years old. History These dogs came to us as unclaimed strays Re-homing Criteria Any potential adopters of these dogs must be prepared to regularly visit the centre multiple times a week to develop a bond , this is a must and non-negotiable , so please keep this in mind when applying especially if you are not local to the centre. We believe these guys to have only lived in a multi dog, kennel situation with little social interaction from people. They would all benefit from a confident, well socialised, neutered dog in the household of the opposite sex. The improvement in these guys since being with us is nothing short of amazing in such a short time, but there is still a long road ahead and any adopters would need to be extremely patient and understanding going forward with their training, as it is unlikely they would ever be an average pet dog. We will not be considering homes with children under 18yrs or cats. A home where someone is around most of the time is important, and we are looking for very quiet homes and locations as they would not cope in a busy environment. A totally secure garden is essential with solid fencing, not mesh or wire, of at least 6ft as they have all attempted to clear our 7ft fencing around the paddock area. Each dog has their own separate needs and personality and we will be reading through all applications to see if any would match a specific dogs requirements. When completing the Homefinding Questionnaire, please give as much information as possible on your experience and circumstances. These dogs have come on leaps and bounds since coming to the centre, but any potential adopters will need to understand that leaving us will be a massive set back to their development , but this does need to happen so they can move forward. Adopters need to understand that it will be a long road moving forward, and will not be a easy task, but the reward when they are settled would be second to none! If you feel you have the right experience, environment, time and patience to give one of our Moffat dogs a home please complete our Homefinding Questionnaire and we will be in touch if we feel you'd be a good match.

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Xiolin & Harry

New dog listed for rescue at the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - Xiolin & Harry

Xiolin & Harry is described as a black Shih-Tzu. Two fun loving characters ! Xiolin who is 8 years old and Harry who is 4 and a half, are two fun loving Shih-tzu's who love being out and about meeting new people. Ideally we would love these pair to go together but they could be rehomed separately as long as there was a pre-existing dog in the household. They are both clean in their kennel.  We have been advised by their previous owner that they will both chase cats, so we would not rehome them where there would be a cat in the household. History These pair came into us due to a change in their previous owners circumstances. Re-homing Criteria We would love this pair to be rehomed together, but this is not essential and could be rehomed separately as long as there was a pre-existing dog in the household. They do both love to be out walking so an active home is a must, they would not be happy with just a potter in the garden. We know that they do not get on with cats and will chase them. They would be ok with dog savvy children of 8years + . A secure garden is a must for these pair so they can enjoy somewhere they can play safely, fencing of 4ft +  PLEASE BE AWARE - this breed of dog would need to visit a professional groomer roughly every 8 weeks at a cost of around £40 each. This is something that you would need to take into account before commiting.  This pair are just full of so much fun and endless love . Do you think you could be the one to offer what these wonderful guys need ? ADOPTION PROCEDURE Please support us ... DONATE NOW
