History ….. His owner surrendered him to a vet who then contacted us. He had previously lived with an elderly Jack Russel.

1st arrived in rescue...… Aug 2020 We found a foster home for Guinness. He proved to be a very shy/timid boy, his foster mum took her time with him introducing things slowly and letting him come around in his own time. Guinness was vocal around dogs at 1st, we have been working on this with him this takes time and consistency but he does get there. He also showed signs of separation anxiety, which we worked on and we could leave him for 2hrs with no issues, this took time and patience.

After a few months of being in a foster home, Guinness found a home but sadly this didn't work out and he was returned on Xmas Eve 2020. His owners felt he didn't bond with the husband and that they couldn't deal with the dog aggression/barking.

Jan 2021 - Guinness is now back with us, he is in a foster home and meeting lots of people and dogs. He is doing really well we are taking things at his pace and he is shining. He is a total treasure.

More about me - I am a very sweet loving boy who can be a bit shy around new things. I like my food and take treats gently. I love deeply and bond quickly with my humans. You will need to be patient with me and take your time to get to know me. I need help around other dogs as I get overexcited and sometimes bark. I have learned how to sit and give a paw I love to play with toys, I love playing tug. Once you get to know me you will see the real me. I am a young foolish overexcited pup at heart who loves everybody. ​

Type of home needed ….. Jan 2021 ​
Guinness needs a home/family that will give him the time and patience to do things in his own time. He is still very young and puppyish. He loves learning and interacting with you but it needs to be in his time. Once he trusts you, you will see a different dog one that loves life and is so eager to learn. He needs an semi-rural active home, he would be great as a running partner.  ​ There must be somebody around most of the time until he gets used to you and your routine. Must have bullbreed experience,  Have experience with reactive dogs as he needs a wee bit help outside with some dogs. Guinness could walk with a dog friendly dog in time. They would need lots of slow intros and walks. It took us just over 2 months for him to trust our 2 dogs and be comfortable with them. Teenage kids. He's a big daft, loving pup that just needs to learn manners.An owner who is willing to work on training him to be the best he can be.  ​
This boy is a total sweetheart, he is soft, loving and totally adorable, he's like a big puppy who is eager to learn. Please give him a chance.  

FEB 2021 - from his foster mum 
Guinness is my latest foster boy. He came to me on Christmas Eve and has been my little house guest ever since. He has a little separation anxiety which we are working on. He goes to Doggy Day Care with Jen and Denise while I’m at work.

What Guinness likes: Cheese, toast with butter, pate, mince, chicken, mash tattie (as long as there is no gravy, he doesn’t like gravy - weird I know!) He loves his walks, he loves cuddles once he gets to know you, he is becoming quite independent in the house and does like his own space. He loves being tucked in with his blanket. He loves jumbones and Schmackos

What Guinness doesn’t like - there’s not a lot he doesn’t like but a few things are Carrots, Lettuce, Gravy (as above ) He’s not keen on being in the car but he’s getting used to it - he barks  a lot in my car but is great in my friends car and doesnt bark . He doesn’t like being cold and he absolutely hates the snow! We’ve been putting in a lot of work over the weeks that he’s been with me. He was in the habit of barking when we came home (excited bark) but we have managed to rectify this and he now only does it occasionally. He can be left for a little while at the moment (1hr) . He’s a little nervous but as he’s meeting more people, he’s becoming more confident. He just needs love, understanding and patience. He’s my little pumpkin and I love him. 

Guinness has been meeting lots of new people and greeting them with a very waggy tail and lots of love. 

March 2021
Guinness has been walking with other dogs for over 10weeks now. Maisie and Becks are both older rescue dogs and are helping Guinness to realise that dogs are ok. 

It has taken time and lots of patience to get him to a place where he is now really comfortable with them  They have been in the garden and the house together. Guinness gets a bit excited and needs some manners but her is like a different dog he is so so happy and playful. He is such a good boy who is still very puppy like. He takes a telling off from the dogs, he cozies up to them both after a play . Please check out his videos and see how loving this boy is.

History... Trixie has come to us from another rescue to see if we can find her a lovely scottish family of her own.  

Hi everyone!
My name is Trixie and I am around 1 year old and a neutered female Bully cross.
Please read my criteria carefully before applying as I have very specific needs and due to time constraints we can only reply to messages that fit the bill 🙂

🐾 A very experienced home who can prove their experience with  dogs like me

🐾 I can live with older sensible children 

🐾 A home free from other dogs and all other animals

🐾 I need an owner that can give me lots of exercise burbis,  be prepared to keep me on the leash unless in a safe environment (for example a rented dog filed).

🐾I do have some seperation anxiety when left completely alone : not only do I make noise but when I have been particularly stressed, and I can be destructive. I do settle in time in my crate,  but Therefore, I will need a family where someone is home most of the time and I can be slowly acclimatised to being left on my own.

🐾 I do have a considerable prey drive so I absolutely cannot be rehomed with other animals (and my rescue friends will need to be aware of any neighbouring animals that may stimulate me too much).

🐾 I had an incredibly sad start to life and was seriously hurt. Despite all of the injuries I sustained, I am in good health and have no ongoing medical issues. 

🐾I will not lie: I am not a dog for the faint-hearted or inexperienced owner. A family will need to be willing to open their hearts, their minds and put in tons of hard work to help me become a more confident girl in a world that has not always been kind to me. However, I will reward you ten-fold, being the most loyal, loveable 'Golden Girl' .

🐾 I would suit a rural setting

🐾Trixie has had to have her ears medically removed by a vet due to the damage that was done to them we think by other dogs in her household.  

I know I have very particular needs but I am an amazing girl! I spent months in foster recovering and my foster family will vouch for how totally incredible I am
