Luna Luna Luna

Luna at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Seal and White Alaskan Malamute 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

Reference: 18/050
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Luna is a big, girl with an even bigger personality. She is a typically, vocal malamute and will soon let you know how she is feeling. Luna likes company and will become vocal if left alone. She loves her walks and playing with toys. Luna has come from a home with two other malamutes, however she did not get on that well with the female, and prefers her space. Luna is not keen on young children but will tolerate older children that know to give her space. This gorgeous big girl is strong on lead and can't be trusted near livestock or cats. Luna is very affectionate and loyal!

History

Luna was brought into us for rehoming due to  her owner's ill health.

Re-homing Criteria

Luna requires an owner who has experience with Alaskan Malamutes. She is a vocal girl who does not like to be left, so we are looking for an owner at home most of the time or a home with neighbours who don't mind a malamute singing voice. Luna needs a home without cats and young children.

History

When we have available kennel space, after helping local dogs, we offer space to those dogs out with the area who are in need of help. Boss was brought over from a pound in Northern Ireland as he was needing a new home.

A Male Tri Colour Border Collie who is age < 1 year

Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.150
Approx Age: < 1 year

Description

Rex is a lively lad who is oozing with friendliness! He a typical young collie who is always looking for something to keep him busy. Rex has come from a home with children who he was fine with, however he has been known to mouth and snap if he is frustrated, so we would recommend older children and owners who are able to provide him with the exercise and mental stimulation he requires. Rex has had experienced living with cats who he was good with. He is friendly towards dog and loves to play. As he is still a youngster who is learning, he has the odd accident and will chew if left alone. Rex is very affectionate and loves interaction. He does however have travel sickness and was given anti sickness tablets for travelling when he came to the centre. This may be something he will overcome with experience and time. He needs help to get used to household appliances like hoovers and hairdryers Rex loves to play ball and will make a fun companion!

History

Rex’s owners had to move accommodation due to their house flooding, and the new property they were in did not have access to a garden. They felt this was not adequate for Rex and reluctantly handed him in to find another home.

Re-homing Criteria

Rex is looking for a home with someone to understands the needs of a young, energetic collie. He needs further training and socialising. Rex loves being outside and would benefit from a home with easy access to an outside garden in order to help his toilet training.

Ruben at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Border Collie who is age 3 years

Good With Children Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/113
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Ruben is a nervous boy who is fearful of some unfamiliar people and demonstrates this fear with what may appear to be quite intimidating barking.This can be overcome by offering him a treat and making friends slowly and in a non threatening manner. Ruben loves to play ball and this is also useful for making friends with him. He has come from a home with 2 other female collies who we are told he got on well with, but they appeared to be quite bossy with him. Now that he is away from his canine companions, he appears to lack the knowledge of how to be around new dogs and he comes be reactive. Ruben has shared his space with 2 cats who he was wary of. He is very strong on lead and would would benefit from further training. As he is from working stock, he has a high chase and herd drive and would try and herd sheep. Ruben knows basic commands but needs further guidance. He is very energetic and can get bored easily if not given enough stimulation. Ruben is a smart boy but this can be his downfall as he knows how to  open doors (although he has not made any attempts to do that here). He is very toy focused and has been used to sleeping on the sofa at home. Once he knows you he is very affectionate.

History

Ruben was handed in for rehoming due to change in his owners circumstances.

Re-homing Criteria

Ruben is a nervous boy with some new people so is looking for a patient, gentle owner who can build his confidence. He needs an active home with a collie experienced owners who understand he needs continued socialising and training.

Gin Gin Gin

Gin * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Lurcher who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/148
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

Gin came to us having a severe skin problem.  This has been treated and she appears to be making an excellent recovery.  She is a very friendly girl but going by some scars it appears she may have been used for hunting in the past.  This could possibly make her treat any small animals as prey.  She does toilet in her kennel overnight, so some house-training may be required.  She walks quite well using a harness. We do not know if she has ever been around young children or livestock. With a little work Gin should make a lovely companion.

History

Gin came to us as a stray so unfortunately we do not have any history on her

Re-homing Criteria

Gin will need a home that will give her loads of love and attention.  She appears to have had a rough past and deserves a much better life now she has been rescued.

Daisy Daisy Daisy

Daisy * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Bearded Collie cross Spaniel who is age 9 months

Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/177
Approx Age: 9 months

Description

Daisy is an extremely energetic, boisterous young girl. She can be very over the top and is easily over excited. She may prove to be too much for a home with young children. When out on the lead she pulls strongly and has no basic training so would require a home with a lot of patience and time to put in to helping her develop and learn. Her previous owner told us she was frightened of cats outside the building and could be very nervous of new dogs, this could be down to lack of experience with them as she is not well socialised. She has no road sense or recall. Her previous owner told us that she would toilet in the house over night but would ask to be let out when they were there.

History

Daisy’s previous owner made the hard decision to have her re-homed because she was too strong and very easily over excited, she was requiring more exercise than what they felt they could offer her.

Re-homing Criteria

Daisy is looking for a very active home with someone who has the time to dedicate to training and socialising her.

Description

Bandit is a nervous boy meeting new people. He needs time to adapt and feel confident with new interactions and situations. Bandit likes his walks and playing with toys. We are told he liked to snuggle under the duvet in his owners bed. Bandit finds children very daunting and has snapped at them prior to coming in.

History

Bandit's owner found him to be too nervous of strangers and children for what they could manage, so they brought him in for rehoming.

Sadie Sadie

A Female Black and tan German Shepherd Dog who is age 6 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/400
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Sadie is looking for a home externally - please do not contact the centre - see below

History

Sadie's elderly owners had to part with her due to their own health issues. She is being cared for in a foster home and we have been asked to help by advertising her. She is very nervous around new people but loving with those she trusts. She does not get on with the other bitch in the foster home. She is fine in the car and has good recall. No problems out on walks. She has recently been spayed.

Re-homing Criteria

Sadie did not like the small dogs she previously lived with. If she has to share her home, a similarly sized or bigger male dog might work. She needs a quiet household without too many visitors. Her new owner needs to be confident and capable with this breed, and understand that Sadie's fear issues around new people will need careful management.

Approx Age: 4 years

Description

Skye needs time to get to know people. She finds new people overwhelming and is looking for an owner who understands this. She is very energetic and loves to play ball.

She is full of energy and can be very over the top with people. Bella is reactive to other dogs and until she learns some manners and social skills, we feel she needs to be the only dog in the home at this stage.

She is however very strong and is not for the faint hearted! Bella travelled fine in a crate in the van, however we do not know if she has had much experience being in a car.  Bella is affectionate and very loving.

Bella came over from a pound in Norther Ireland. We have no information on her background. She arrived at the centre carrying some of her own passengers, and she gave birth to a healthy litter of pups here at the centre. Bella was a great mum and did a great job caring for her litter.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for a home with owners who understand the breed traits of German Shepherds. Bella is very strong, and active. She needs an owner who can continue her training and socialising. At this, stage, Bella will need to be the only dog in the house until she improves in her social skills with other dogs..Homefinder Questionnaire

Shay Shay Shay

Shay at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Brown Jack Russel Terrier cross who is age 8 years

Not Good With Children

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/188
Approx Age: 8 years

Description

Shay is quite the lovable rogue.  He is fine to walk with female dogs but does not get along with males.  His table manners are not the best so care has to be taken when giving him treats as he tends to snatch at them.  With some positive training this problem should be able to sorted out.  He will also require some assistance with his house training as he does tend to cock his leg everywhere.  He is very people friendly, however care has to be taken if picking him up for any reason as he can take issue with this if taken unawares.  With a little effort and assistance Shay should become a lovely companion.  Shay does unfortunately have a grade 4 heart murmur which means he will be on medication for the remainder of his life.  It is not known if Shay has been around cats before.

History

Shay was rescued from a Dog Pound.  He had been surrendered by an elderly owner who unfortunately was no longer able to care for him.

Re-homing Criteria

Due to Shay's lack of table manners, we will not be rehoming him to a home with young children in case of an accident.  He will require quite an experienced home with someone who is prepared through positive training techniques help him with his behaviour.
