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.

Vinnie has been in a house for 9 months and he was perfect in the house but he can be very hard to handle as he is highly reactive to all other breeds of dog, livestock etc

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.

Using positive reward based training is a must.

Edward is a sweet boy who has struggled with kennels so we are looking for a special home that can help him settle back into home life. 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.

Trix is looking for love!

This gorgeous boy is called Trix. He is very affectionate, will do anything for a biscuit and he loves a bit of a fuss made.

Trix came to us after an injury in his previous home which left damage to his back. He has been treated by our vets and although he does seem to be improving, on our vets advice he will need a home where he can get the down time he needs to fully recover.  He is restricted to short lead walks and strictly no off lead at this time.

History

His previous owner felt they couldn’t give him the support and time he needs to make a full recovery.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for a home without cats and young children but older children would be fine. He needs a calm home with a family who can help him complete his recovery time and get him back to 100%. Trix may be able to live with another dog, a dog to dog introduction can be carried out here at the kennels.

If you think you may be the one for him please get in touch for more information.
