Luath (pronounced Loo-a and means fast in Scottish Gaelic) first came into SGS care in 2017 at the age of 16 months. Sadly, he has moved around a fair bit having been rehomed and returned several times. He is not an easy dog and will require a very experienced home to deal with his issues:

• Severe resource guarding which leads to biting.
• Reactivity to other dogs in the home, so he would need to be an only dog. (He can have canine friends outside for walks and playdates).
• Pulling on the lead.
• Getting excited and ragging the lead and jumping up at people.
• Separation anxiety.

The good news is that these issues have settled down after several months in his current foster home. However, he has displayed them each time he’s gone to a new home and they are very likely to show again when he moves.

Luath’s full history can be provided if you think you may be able to offer him a forever home. However, we will only accept applications from people who can demonstrate they have significant lurcher experience and are willing to work with Luath.

Cashew is a very cute little lad with typical terrier characteristics. He only likes to be a lap dog when it suits him so is looking for a hands off home that will respect his space and let him settle in his own time. As he is an older boy he is looking to put his paws up and relax but he isn't ready to retire just yet as he loves playing with toys.

Type of home needed

Cashew can live with children over the age of 16 years old as he does like his own space. He can walk with other dogs but prefers to be the only pet in the home. Cashew is partially housetrained and will need his new owners to help him work on this. Once Cashew is settled he can be left alone for part of the day and really enjoys his own company. Using positive reward based training is a must.

More about me

Cashew will need a garden, this will make housetraining easier and give him somewhere to potter around. This must be a private one to keep him safe. He would prefer a home with few stairs due to his age. Cashew is enjoying the home comforts of a foster home and is available to meet by appointment. He would like to meet his new owners a few times before going home. We are currently taking applications for Cashew until we find a suitable home for him. Only the successful applicant will be contacted.

We are looking for an adult only home (18 years plus) with plenty of time to dedicate to turning this boys life around. Originally found as a stray at a young age he deserves his happy ever after. He would suit a training minded owner happy to work with our training and behaviour team.

Type of home needed

Edward would love to be the centre of attention in his home as the only pet. Having direct access to his own secure garden with a 6ft fence is essential as Edward will need to be kept on lead when in public places. Having his own garden will give him somewhere to stretch his legs and have a bit of freedom. Active owners would be ideal as this young boy has plenty of energy and loves to be kept busy. Having previous experience of owning a dog is essential as Edward does get a little OTT at times and needs his owner to encourage calm behaviours.

More about me

Environment is key for Edward and a quiet household and quiet areas to walk would be best for him. Edward will need someone at home with him most of the day to build up the time he is left alone. Edward can be a sensitive lad so needs a gentle owner with patience to build his confidence. He will make a wonderful companion in his next home as he has so much love to give and enjoys nothing more than being close to his favourite people.

Billy hasn't had the best start to life and as a result is looking for a very understanding owner who can take things slowly with him and give him the life he deserves. He would benefit from living with experienced owners who are happy to work with him on his training needs using positive reward based training. He takes his time getting to know and trust people but once he does he is a lovely little companion. He will make a great addition in the right home.

Type of home needed

Billy is looking for a quiet home environment with few visitors. Children should be over the age of 16 years to live Billy or visit the home. He needs direct access to his own garden with a 6ft fence. This will give him somewhere to enjoy off lead time as he will need to remain on lead and muzzle when in public places. Billy can find new people or new situations overwhelming and can get worried quite easily which has resulted in a bite previously. Being on lead and muzzle will help keep him and others safe in these situations.

More about me

Billy would prefer to be the only pet in the home to ensure that he gets all time and support he needs to help him settle and build a relationship with his new owners. He would like to meet his new owners a few times before going home to start this bond. To apply to adopt him please click on the 'Rehoming me starts here' button below.

Casper is 10 years old but young at heart. He is looking for a quiet home but not quite ready for retirement yet. He finds himself with us as he was not getting on with the visiting grandchildren in his last home and is looking for an adult only environment (18 years plus) with no visiting kids.

Type of home needed

Casper would prefer to be the only pet in the home. He is reactive when he sees other dogs and people so a quiet home environment and quiet areas to walk are a must so that he gets to relax during his walks. He will need to be kept on lead and muzzled due to previous incidents but this is something that is part of his normal routine. In the home this is not required so having direct access to his own private garden with a 5ft fence is essential to allow him somewhere to enjoy off lead time.

More about me

Having someone at home all day initially would be best but the time that Casper is left alone could gradually be built up to a few hours once he is settled. We are looking for owners with previous dog experience that are happy to continue training with him. He will need to be seperated from visitors and will need careful introductions to new people. He will make a cracking wee companion in the right home and no dount it will be rewarding to watch him progress. To apply to adopt Casper please click on the 'rehoming me starts here' buttone below.

Jupiter is a 2 year old Doberman cross that initially came to us as a stray and was rehomed to a busy family home. He was returned to our care as it wasn't the right home environment for him. Now we have a better idea of what works for Jupiter and are looking for a particular environment to ensure it will be his forever home. A committed owner with previous experience of owning a dog as an adult is essential as we are looking for him to continue training. His new home should be in a rural setting to give him the best chance of settling in.

Type of home needed

Jupiter is looking for an adult only home with people of 18 years and older with no visiting children. He can get anxious when there are other dogs or people in view which is why we are looking for a quite home with few people and dogs around. He will need to be kept on lead and wearing a muzzle when in public places but this is a normal part of his routine. At home and in his own garden this isn't required so having his own secure private garden with 6ft fence is a must to enjoy some off lead time.

More about me

Jupiter is really friendly with people that he knows and adores playing games, getting back scratches and snuggling in on the sofa. He would like to have all the attention as the only pet in the home. Having someone around for most of the day would be great but he could be left for a few hours once settled. Jupiter will make a really fun and loving companion for the right person. To apply to adopt Jupiter please click on the 'rehoming me starts here' button.

Watson is a super friendly and fun loving big guy who is looking for an owner with the time to help him adjust to home life. He will make a fantastic canine companion for an owner with previous experience. He is looking to continue training but is enthusiastic about most things in life and we are confident in time he will settle well into the right home. He responds well to reward based training as he enjoys snacks.

Type of home needed

Watson prefers to have his humans around for most of the day, he can be destructive if left alone, and will need the time he is left to be gradually built up once he is settled. Having direct access to his own secure garden with a 5ft fence is a must to continue his housetraining. This also gives him somewhere to burn off energy and have somewhere to potter at his own leisure as he will need to be kept on lead and muzzled when in public. He is looking to be the only pet in the home so that his owners can focus their attention on helping him settle. He is sociable and can walk with doggy friends although his playstyle can be a bit over the top. He is looking for a home with children aged 16 years or older.

More about me

Watson came to us after retiring from racing and may have never lived in a home. There are a couple of areas that he will require some help adjusting to and will need a committed owner who will be understanding of this and give him the time he needs. He is such a loving boy who enjoys nothing more than being with his favourite people and it will be a rewarding experience to see his training through to the end.
