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.

A Male White with Black Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross who is age 9 years

Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/194
Approx Age: 9 years

Description

Diesel is very friendly! He loves everyone he meets, but can be a little too full on at times with his enthusiasm levels! Diesel has come from a home with young children who he was good with. He is sociable towards other dogs, although may prove too much for small dogs. This energetic boy loves his toys and playing fetch. Like most staffies, he loves nothing more than being made a fuss of and enjoys being curled up with you in bed. Diesel has no road sense. We are told he will try and jump into cars if the windows are open. This clever boy can open some doors too. Diesel does not like cats so is looking for a home where he wont come into contact with them. He has been known to try and chase livestock. Diesel is very affectionate and fun!

History

Diesel's owner made the tough decision to bring him in for rehoming as he was being left too long on his own, due to an increase in work hours.

Re-homing Criteria

Diesel loves company and ideally is looking for a home where he won't be left. He is a strong boy and needs a home without cats. Diesel is currently on a diet as he has enjoying one too many biscuits!

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.

Tonic Tonic Tonic

Tonic * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Black with White Lurcher

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/197

Description

Tonic is a quiet girl who loves attention. She tries to keep her kennel clean so she has most likely had toilet training previously. Tonic loves to play and can get excited quite when she is. She travelled fine in the dog wardens van over to the centre and was a good girl seeing our vet. Tonic is not a fan of the cold and would much rather be snuggled up in the warmth getting cuddles. She walks nicely on lead.

History

Tonic arrived at the centre as a stray from Lockerbie. She had no ID on her collar and was not microchipped, therefore we have information on her previous owner.

Re-homing Criteria

As Tonic was a stray we do not know f she has been socialised with children or other animals. She appears fine with the dogs she has seen in the neighbouring kennels.

Tufty Tufty Tufty

Tufty * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male White with black Terrier cross who is age 1 year

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/190
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Tufty has a lovable cheeky character once you get to know him, he can be a little timid at times with new people. He was picked up as a stray so may need support with all elements of training and socialising. He is learning to walk well on the lead and we know he gets on well with female dogs but not so well with male dogs. As we don’t have a lot of history on him we can’t say if he is good with children or cats. He travelled well in the car on the way to the centre. He has been known to guard his food and toys so he defiantly needs further training here.

History

When we have available kennel space, after helping local dogs, we offer space to those dogs out with the area who need help. Tufty was brought over from a pound in Northern Ireland as he was needing a new home.  Unfortunately, we have no more information on his history.

Re-homing Criteria

Tufty is looking for a home where he can get the training and support he needs, along with plenty of attention and exercise.

Moss Moss

Moss * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Border Collie who is age 6 years

Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18.207
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Moss is a sweet girl who is very shy at first, she doesn’t like loud bangs and if she is unsure of anything she prefers to stay her ‘safe spot’ which in her last home was her kennel.

She has spent most of her life as a kennel dog but spent a few nights in a house before coming to the centre. She slept in the kitchen and was clean overnight. Moss is used to lots of different animals and she doesn’t show any interest in them, she has met sheep, cows, cats, dogs and Alpacas. Moss seems to enjoy her own space away from the other animals-if they were too much, she would just take herself off to her kennel. Moss seems to prefer female humans, she is can be very nervous around new men. She doesn’t have any re-call at the moment, she had free run on the farm but kept running away back to her kennel. Moss has been on a lead and although she doesn’t pull that much, she will need some encouragement in this area.

History

Moss has lived in her last home for 6 months, she was bought as a working farm dog but she doesn’t have any interest in working.

Re-homing Criteria

Moss needs a calm home. She will need time to adapt into a house dog. She can be upset by loud or sudden noises so she may find a town environment too much. Her last home had 4 older children who she was good with but she hasn’t met younger children and loud noises scare her

Description

Meg came in with another dog, who she gets on well with but tends to bully and herd the other dog. She hasn’t met cats but she is fine with livestock.

Mes has good re-call and she isn’t too bad on the lead and she is good with new people-a little shy at first. She travels well in a crate in the car.

History

Meg was bought as a partly trained worker when she was 2years old. She is no longer required to work on the farm, her owners can’t keep her anymore.

Description

Squeak is a friendly terrier who has a real affectionate side. She is lively and loves attention. Squeak is strong on lead and would benefit from further training. She does not always like dogs in her space and she is a food guarder. Squeak came in with her mother Zara, who she mostly got on well with, however Zara didn't always respect Squeaks need for space and they have had disagreements.

Squeak has come from a town environment and copes well with new people but reactive to some dogs out and about. She likes company in the house but can be bouncy in the car. We are told she has met cats briefly a while ago. Squeak will make a great companion as she has so much love to give!

Champers is a timid soul who takes a while to know you. She is not keen on loud noises or the cold. Champers can be a little hand shy at first and needs a soft approach. She enjoys her walks and walks well on lead. She doesn't appear phased by other dogs but we do not know if she has shared her space with them before. Champers is a quiet girl in kennels.
