Milo Milo

Milo * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Collie cross Husky who is age 3 years

Not Good With Children Good With Other Pets Not Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

CUDDLE LOVING, ACTIVE BOY

Milo is a handsome blue eyed boy, full of energy and bags of love to give. He will happily spend hours exploring new trails with you. He also appreciates the comforts of a cosy bed by the fire and loves nothing more than to relax by your side.  His favorite place to sleep is at you're feet no matter where you are, in the kitchen, bathroom, lounge or bedroom etc. He will make a super companion for an active couple or family with older children, Milo loves to get cuddles and has the best good morning welcome. Milo has obviously had training in the past as he is a well mannered boy, but ongoing training is essential as he hasn't seen a lot in the world and can be a little apprehensive when meeting new dogs, but after a quick study he soon works it out.

History

Milo's previous home loved him dearly but due to his tendency to escape the garden they felt they weren't the right home for him.

Re-homing Criteria

An active, outdoor couple or family with older children that have time to give Milo the exercise and attention that he requires.

Milo needs to be included as one of the family as he thrives on human interaction, so he won't be able to live somewhere that intend on leaving him for long periods of time.

He has previously lived with cats, but would need careful introduction to a new cat. We feel Milo would be best as an only dog in the home, although he is happy to walk with other canine companions.

Milo will need a secure garden as he has escaped in the past, 6ft or above fencing will be essential.

He has previously lived with children over 10yrs old and we wouldn't be looking for him to live with any children that are younger. If you are planning to have a family in the near future Milo won't be the dog for you as he is sensitive to sudden or loud noises and likes his own personal space.

Finn Finn Finn

Finn at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black Lurcher who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Such a charmer!

If you are looking for an energetic, happy, handsome best friend then look no further that our gorgeous Finn!

This boy is a real charmer and just loves a fuss made. As you can see he is lacking in the hair department, although we are carrying out further investigations into this baldness, there has been nothing serious found so far and it doesn’t seem to bother him in the slightest. Finn LOVES nothing more than to zoom around the paddock and get lots of attention from his human friends. Home comforts are very important to this man, a couch and a cuddle makes him very happy!

History

Finn is looking for a new family as he wasn’t getting on with the other dog in his previous home.

Re-homing Criteria

We have found he copes well when out walking closely with other dogs here at the centre but is looking for a home where he could be the only dog as he does enjoy his space, especially around meal times.

Finn needs an active home where he can get the attention and love he deserves. In his previous home he got on well with the cats but had been known to chase them now and again so a confident dog savvy cat or a cat free home.

Finn has had quite a few major changes in his life recently which made him quite anxious, so we are looking for a quiet settled home with no major changes coming up anytime soon.

Dotty Dotty Dotty

Dotty * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White Springer Spaniel cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is age 10 years

Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets Not Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Sweet, loyal and affectionate.

Dotty is a 10yr old Springer Spaniel x Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  Due the nature of her breeding she is always on the go and eager to be the centre of attention, craving affection.

She loves nothing than to be be by your side, or on her back receiving tummy rubs!!

Dotty walks great on lead and mixes well with other dogs when under lead control. She has recently made a new friend in Cuddles and is happy to free run with him in our paddock. She loves free play of lead, and has boundless energy for her age.

Dotty does have a few minor health issues, but nothing that is unmanageable with treatment and care.

History

Dotty came to us due to the owners ill health

Re-homing Criteria

Dotty walks well on lead with other dogs, and we wouldn't rule out her living with a male dog if introductions were successful. although she'd be just as happy living as an only pet.

Any children in the household or visiting will need to be 10+ due to her excited nature during playtimes.

A secure garden is a must, preferably with plenty of space for her to exercise and roam.

Dotty would suit an older family, couple or single person who are devoted to giving her the care she so deserves.

Buddy Buddy Buddy

Buddy * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Fawn Jack Russell Terrier cross Pug who is age 3 years 5 months

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

playfull bouncy cheeky chappy

Buddy is an energetic terrier who is looking for a caring loving and understanding home, where he can realise his full potential.

Having had two previous homes in the past Buddy is a little unsure when it comes to meeting new people. Therefore we would need Buddy's next potential adopters to come and see him multiple times before we knew they were the right match for him. Once a bond has been built he displays his true nature, that of a loving friendly and playful boy.

Buddy will need a calm and stable environment to enable him to continue his journey. Buddy loves his toy's and is always ready for a game, he is also very fond of little treats and we have found this to help enormously in his training.  Buddy will make a great companion for an understanding owner.

History

Buddy has sadly had two homes previously neither of which fully understood the terrier nature.

Re-homing Criteria

It has become obvious in the time that we have had Buddy at the centre that he prefers his male carers from his female ones, so we want Buddy to have at least one man in his life.

Buddy would happily live with a female dog but won't live with male dogs as he isn't keen on male dogs when they get too close.

We have no idea what he would be like with cats, but being a terrier and quite a high chase drive we doubt he'd live with cats.

Buddy will need a very 'hands off' approach when he goes to his new home, so he can adjust to his new surroundings with as little stress as possible. We feel that rehoming him in our local area so we are on hand to help with any teething problems will insure the best possible out come for Buddy.

If you are someone who is prepared to spend time building a bond with him and gaining his trust, in return you will be rewarded with a loving loyal companion.

Vinnie Vinnie Vinnie

Vinnie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male yellow Lurcher who is age 4 years

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Sweet,friendly,lively boy!

Vinnie is your'e typical lively lurcher with a striking personality! He is always ready to go on an adventure so would best suite an active home. Vinnie needs someone to give him lots of time and attention as he has so much love to give and loves to cuddle.

History

Vinnie came to us as a stray so we dont know much about his past.

Re-homing Criteria

An active, loving home who have plenty of time to give Vinnie the attention he requires. He is house trained and a well mannered boy but dose require further training.

Vinnie has shown he can get on with some dogs. He could, if introductions go well, live with a confident, larger female dog. He has shown uncertainty around dogs when out walking, so a confident handler who is prepared to do some dog socialisation training is what Vinnie is going to need. Although he isn't a big lurcher is is quite strong, so a physically fit owner is a must.

A secure garden with a 6ft fence would be necessary as his lurcher legs give him a good spring in his step! Vinnie loves to have zoomies around the garden, so a bigger than average garden is essential as he does need to burn off steam, as well as go for long walks.

Vinnie could live in a family with children of 10yrs upwards, but given his strength could only be walked by an adult.

This gorgeous boy loves nothing more than snuggling under the duvet with his human companions, so be warned!

Misty and Alfie Misty and Alfie Misty and Alfie

Misty and Alfie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female White and Tan Collie cross and Lab cross who is age 4 years

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Active, fun, sensitive pair.

Misty and Alfie are loving, affectionate dogs looking for an active home together.

Misty is a neutered female Collie cross aged 4 years and Alfie is a male neutered Labrador cross aged 6 years.

These two are very different from each other. Alfie is the extrovert while Misty is the introvert. Alfie is happy to meet anyone, he's outgoing and bubbly. Misty on the other hand is the quieter of the pair, and is very cautious when meeting new people and going in to new situations. So together they are the perfect pair. Misty will take time to settle, and therefore we are looking for someone that has had dealings with shy, less confident dogs and understands that gaining her trust will take some time.

History

Very sadly their owner recently passed away, so they have found themselves looking for a new home together.

Re-homing Criteria

Misty and Alfie rely on each other and do get quite anxious when they are not together. This is why we feel that it is only fair to try and keep them together and find a home that will be willing to take them both on.

They need a quiet, understanding home. Someone who has dealt with nervous dogs before would be ideal.

A very secure garden area would be essential, so lead free exercise could take place safe in the knowledge that they couldn't escape.

We have no idea what they are like with cats, but we could possibly look at introducing them to an existing cat.

As a quieter home is required, mainly for Misty, so older teenage children would be best, along with someone who is at home most of the time.

Any potential adopters must be prepared to visit Alfie and Misty multiple times to get a bond with Misty before she leave the centre. Please keep this in mind when enquiring.

Esme Esme

Esme * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Dark brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is age 7 years

Good With Children Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Sweet, happy girl with lots of love to give

Esme is a dinky girl, small for her breed. She is extremely loving and, like many Staffies, would rather have a sofa to call her own than spend time in kennels. She loves attention and can get quite excited when fussed, but often ends up asking for a tummy rub. Esme is a joy to walk on the lead and likes going for walks with other well-behaved dogs. She is quite submissive and usually ignores dogs who are barking at her. She prefers dry days to rainy ones (who doesn't?) and a coat for protection against the elements, as well as a comfy bed, is high on her list of priorities. True to her breed, she likes food and responds well to reward-based training using treats. Esme loves human company and may be noisy if left alone for long periods of time. When brought to the rescue, she was noisy in the van but may travel better in a car. She has kept her kennel clean and has not been destructive with her bedding or toys.

History

Esme came to us from a dog pound, so has no known history.

Re-homing Criteria

Esme would suit a single adult household, a couple or family. She may be able to live with children over the age of 8. Like many Staffies, she enjoys walks but won't require frequent long-distance hikes to keep her happy. Subject to a suitable introduction, she could live with other well-behaved male or female dogs but, given the choice, human company may be more important to her.

A Male and white and Tri Jack Russell Terrier who is age 2 years

Good With Children

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

Cheeky Chaps!

Ollie (Tri) and Gizmo (white and Tan) are such happy, bouncy, loving little dogs. They are full of life, have endless energy and love noting more than a good walk and lots of fuss made. These boys are very affectionate and have great little personalities.

History

Ollie and Gizmo are litter mates and arrived at the kennels together. They have only had one previous home where their owner had to make the hard decision to rehome them as they felt they could no longer provide them with the attention and time they deserve.

Re-homing Criteria

These two cheeky chaps are looking for a home together where they can get further socialising and plenty of daily exercise. They would benefit from a secure garden and a family who wouldnt be leaving them on their own for long periods of time.

A Male silver and white Husky 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

Lover of the Great Outdoors!

This is the very handsome and charming Thor.

He is a friendly guy who loves the great outdoors but also appreciates a good sofa!

This good boy was housetrained at his previous home, walks well on the lead, loves a fuss made and has a beautiful singing voice! He can take a little time to get used to new people but deep down he is a sensitive soul who will make a great best friend.

History

Thor's previous owners made the hard decision to rehome him as they felt he would enjoy himself and relax more in a home without young children

Re-homing Criteria

Thor is looking for an active family without young children and preferably without cats. He needs a loving home where he can get all the attention he needs. Other things that would be important to Thor are a secure garden and someone who wouldn't be leaving him for long periods of time.
