Luath Luath Luath

Luath at Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary

A Male Black Lurcher who is age 5

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

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

Shelter Location: Cover all of Scotland and further afield if necessary

This is Luath. He’s had quite the journey with SGS but sadly it isn’t over yet. Luath has very special needs so he needs a very special home. He’s in a foster home just now but they can only keep him a short while, then he has to move again… We really want Luath to find a forever home where his new humans know how to manage his behaviour. He’s not an easy boy and unfortunately being moved around has intensified his issues. Luath’s biggest problem is that he will snap, but we know with time, patience and support from the SGS behaviourist he will settle down and be a wonderful companion for someone.

Because of his special needs we are only considering applications from people with significant experience in working with difficult behaviour. We will provide his full history to applicants and ongoing support, for as long as needed. If you or anyone you know has the experience to take on the Luath challenge please get in touch. We are running out of options for him and need a safe place for him to destress and start to trust again.

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.

Homefinder Questionnaire

If you'd like to help rehome Buddy simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.

He will do well with additional socialisation with dogs and continue his clicker training, which he really enjoys.

Type of home needed

Rudi is looking for an adult only home with people over the age of 18 years old.

Once he builds a relationship with you he will make a fabulous companion. He can be left for a few hours at a time and is housetrained. He needs a secure garden with a 5ft fence and quiet areas to walk initially.

More about me

This boy deserves a commited owner willing to continue his training. Having experience with bull breeds would be beneficial although any dog experience as an adult would be considered. Rudi will need to be kept on a lead and muzzled in public as he gets worried around other dogs.
