Buddy Buddy Buddy

Buddy at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Fawn Jack Russell Terrier cross Pug who is age 2 years 2 months

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Buddy is an energetic, terrier who is looking for some guidance. Once he knows you he is very affectionate but he does needs guidance learning boundaries. Buddy can mouth very hard and becomes aroused very easily therefore he is needs discouraged from rough play. Buddy can be vocal and very full on with some dogs. He has shared his space with another dog for a short period of time but we are told the other dog was not keen on him. Buddy is very toy and food motivated so this helps with training. He lacks experience of cats and given his full on terrier nature, we can’t guarantee he would live with one. Buddy has been sick in the car previously so will need help becoming used to traveling. Buddy will make a great companion for an owner who has lots of time to invest with his ongoing training.

History

Buddy was handed in for rehoming as he has bitten in his previous home. His owners were also moving house and with young children in the home they could not provide him with the ongoing training he requires as he was not comfortable with children in his space.

Re-homing Criteria

Buddy displays resource guarding behaviour which means he feels the need to guard items he values such as toys or treats. This can be managed by swapping items he values for higher value items so he doe not feel threatened. An adult only home is essential.  He is not comfortable with veterinary examinations so is being muzzle trained and desensitised to touch.  Calm touch-training would also help him understand hands are not for biting. This must be continued and his adopter must be committed to his ongoing requirements. His nature is that of a strong-willed terrier so his adopter must understand the characteristics of independent terriers who require guidance.

Alfie Alfie

Alfie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male White Collie cross American Bulldog (Large Crossbreed) who is age 1year4months

Not Good With Other Pets Not Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

HAPPY, FUN LOVING, BOUNCY BOY.

If you are looking for a fun and playful partner meet our Alfie.
 
At less than 17 months old his life has been quite unpredictable until now, after an altercation with the other male dog in the home it was decided that he would come to us for rehoming.
 
On arrival Alfie was vocal towards other dogs, and could be slightly wary of new people. With understanding, socialisation and training we have found Alfie to be a real love bug and a very playful pup. He craves human interaction, whether this be in the form of training, playing or love and hugs.
 
Alfie loves his exercise and playing ball is his favourite. Alfie has no problem in toy sharing. If you love the great outdoors he will be a fantastic companion to have around.
 
He is a very loving boy, with a fun loving playful personality. He will certainly fill your house with fun and love....there will never be a dull moment again.
 
Through his training he has learnt to sit and wait, he loves his treats and is very eager to please, so further training should be very straightforward, as his tummy rules his head.
 
If you have the time to commit to his ongoing training and development and are looking for a fun loving happy boy to share your life with, then Alfies for you.

History

Alfie came to us as he had an altercation with the other entire male dog in the family. Alfie was also entire at the time.

Re-homing Criteria

A family with older children as he is so bouncy, couple or single person. Most importantly time to commit to his further development and able to devote time to plenty of exercise and play. We do consider that Alfie is rehomable with another dog in the house, but this will be very dependent on the size, sex, age and temperament of the resident dog.

Milo Milo Milo

Milo at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male brindle GSD cross who is age <1year

Not 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

Young super intelligent, over exuberant work in progress!

Milo is very intelligent, to the point if he doesn’t get to use his brain unwanted behaviours manifest themselves! In saying that if exercise is added to the mix and training is continued, we feel that Milo will make someone a super companion.

Milo needs direction, simple as that. He is not a dog that will be happy sitting around with the odd walk around the block. Mo Farah would be hard pushed to wear this boy out, but masses of exercise and mental stimulation is exactly what Milo needs to be happy.

History

Milo – 1yr old cross breed neutered male. Milo came to us as a visiting child in the home was worried around him.

Re-homing Criteria

Milo’s seeks a home where adventure and outdoor activities are the norm. Milo’s new owner needs to have had previous experience in the training and behaviour side of owning a dog. Agility, fly ball and scent work are all on the cards for this chap.  Love, understanding and patience are vital qualities that we will be looking for in his new owner.  PLEASE DO NOT APPLY if you have never had a dog before, you have children under the age of 18, or you have other pets including dogs. Or if you are the kind of person that cancels a walk if it’s raining as you will not be the right home for our super boy Milo.

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

Scooby dooby doo!

Big Friendly Giant

Well like his name sake Scooby likes to think hes tough, but he is not as brave as he likes to think he is. This boy is beautiful inside and out.

He is a very affectionate goofy boy. He will sit on your lap, all 45kgs of him, if you let him. He loves fuss and attention. He really enjoys lazing on his bed in the sunshine, you could say he's a bit of a couch potatoe and will love it even more with his special person sitting by his side.

Could you be Scooby Doo's Shaggy, unlike the cartoon character you will need to be a confident person, Scooby needs a kind confident loving leader, so he can be the very best he can.

This boy has bags of potential, he is generally very laid back, but can be a little excitable at times, but is responding very well to training.History

Scooby came into the centre, having been found roaming the streets

Re-homing Criteria

Scooby requires a home with no small children, where he is the only pet and away from livestock. His adopters will need to be able to physically handle a strong dog and able to continue his training.

A Male Black and tan Rottweiler cross who is age 8years

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Loving handsome middle aged chap

Murphy is a lovely boy, who enjoys human company very much. He loves a walk, and once settled walks quite nicely on the lead. He is a sociable and friendly to other dogs that he meets. He participates in our group walks with the other dogs at DGCRC. He is a middle aged chap, but still full of life. He likes nothing more than spending time with people. He really wants to be someone's best friend.

History

He came to us as an unclaimed stray. His previous owners decided that they no longer wanted him.

Re-homing Criteria

Murphy would fit into most homes and lifestyles, and has previously lived with children over 10. Company is a must for Murphy, as he does not like being on his own for long periods. He loves his walks, but does not need to be homed to outdoor enthusiasts ! Company and love are high on Murphy's list of priorities.

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

FUN LOVING, ACTIVE, FAMILY BOY

Milo is a handsome blue eyed boy, full of energy and bags of love to give. He will happily spend hours playing ball or going for long country adventures, but he also appreciates the comforts of a cosy bed by the fire. He will make a super companion for an active family. Milo has obviously had training in the past as he is a well mannered boy.

History

Milo's previous home loved him dearly but due to a change in circumstance were unable to provide for Milo's exercise needs.

Re-homing Criteria

An active, outdoor family with time to give Milo the exercise that he requires. Milo needs to be included as one of the family as he thrives on human interaction and being part of the pack. He has previously lived with cats and another dog, however we feel that Milo may benefit as being the only dog. He has also lived with children 10yrs and over.

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

A real little sweetheart

This little girl is really gorgeous, both in looks and personality. She has lived with other dogs both male and female. she is very friendly towards other dogs that she meets. She enjoys going on our group walks with the other dogs here at DGCRC. She is petite in stature, but what she lacks in size, her personality sure makes up for. Seeing her sweet little face and waggy tail is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face.

History

Very sadly her owner passed away, leaving her and her two other canine companions. (Misty and Alfie).

Re-homing Criteria

This sweet little girl could really do with being a big part of her new family's life. She doesn't have any issues, what you see is what you get. As an older girl  she would be better suited to a quieter home, without resident children.

We would not rule out her being adopted alongside her two original companions, (Misty and Alfie) however each  dog does have different lifestyle requirements, but they have previously lived very happily together.

Sweet natured and loving little chap

Happy little fun size package, with lots of love to give.  Figo is a sweet natured boy, who would love nothing more than to be the center of someone's world. He has a very biddable nature and just loves to be loved.

History

Due to Figo coming in as a stray our information is very limited, however we do know that he originally came from Spain.

Re-homing Criteria

Figo would be better suited to a single person or a couple. He is a happy little dog, who loves the companionship of people, He enjoys a walk, but his exercise demands are not high. Company is what Figo enjoys, so someone who is wanting to make him a big part of their life would be ideal.
