Bell Bell Bell

Bell * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Black and White Whippet cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is age 1 year 5 months

Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/068
Approx Age: 1 year, 5 months

Description

This is the lovely Bell; she can be timid to begin with but loves a cuddle once she gets to know you. Bell is strong on the lead and doesn’t have any recall. She can be nervous of new dogs but we have been told she lived with two other dogs in her previous home and was great with them, she is also happy to share her space here at the kennels with her mum (Cleo) who she came into the centre with. Having had no experience living with children we are looking for a home without them, her previous owner told us she was easily wound up by children living nearby. We have also been told Bell would tend to cry when left alone but was much happier in the company of another dog. She is partly housetrained but will have the odd accident. Bell can be timid when meeting new people and has a fear of the hoover. She travels well in the car and copes well at the vets. Bell is a jumper and has been known to leap almost as high as the previous owners 6-foot fence.

History

Bell came into the centre with her mum Cleo, after an incident with a cat which unfortunately didn’t survive. She is the more timid of the two.

Re-homing Criteria

This lovely girl is looking for a home where she could get lots of love and attention to help build her confidence. Due to the incident with the cat we are looking for a home without cats or young children. Her previous owners felt she would do better in a home with another dog for company. She will need an owner who can dedicate time to training and socialising.

Millie Millie Millie

Millie at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Fawn Akita cross who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/093
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

This gorgeous girl is called Millie, she loves attention and a bit of a fuss made. She is a friendly girl but not overly keen on close handling until she gets to know you. Here at the kennels she seems fine to walk past other dogs but isn’t happy with them being in her space. We are unsure of how she would react to cats but we know she isn’t good with livestock and would probably be too full on for a home with young children. Millie tends to keep her kennel clean which would suggest she is house trained, she copes ok at the vets and walks well on the lead for the most part but can be very strong when she does pull.

History

Millie was brought to us as a stray so unfortunately we don’t have any history on her.

Re-homing Criteria

We know she has attacked a sheep before so she defiantly needs to go to an urban home and we are looking for somewhere out of Dumfries and Galloway. Millie will need an owner with an understanding of the breed and plenty time to dedicate to her. She is looking for a home where she can be the only dog and without young children.

Description

Bracken is a lively boy who has lots of love to share. He is very full on and is eager to learn some manners. Bracken has shared his home with 2 cats who we are told he was fine with, as well as a female young crossbreed pup who he was good with. He is however not good with all other dogs he meets.

Shug Shug Shug

Shug at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male White and Tan Jack Russell Terrier cross who is age < 1 year

Good With Children Not Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/064
Approx Age: < 1 year

Description

Shug is a typical young Jack Russel.  He loves to play but can be very over the top with other dogs some of whom will not accept this behaviour. His previous owner said he was great with children including a baby. However, as he is an adolescent male, full of energy, we recommend careful introductions to any new children. He has been house trained and also crate trained which would give peace of mind to any possible adopter having to leave him on his own for short periods, as young dogs can chew.  He has no experience of cats but it is known he will chase small furry animals.  Shug has a good recall but requires some lead work and focus training as he is reactive when he sees other dogs. This can be overcome with consistent, \look at me\ training where he is taught to focus his attention on his owner and rewarded for doing so. If we teach him an alternative to barking and reinforce this, he will learn what is an appropriate behaviour

History

Shug has been brought along to us for rehoming as he was not getting on with the older dog already in the home. He was adopted for a brief amount of time but unfortunately his adopters felt they could not commit to his further training.

Re-homing Criteria

Shug requires a patient owner who understands the needs of an energetic, adolescent terrier. He is looking for guidance when out on walks as he is can become frustrated on lead. Shug needs a committed owner who can invest lots of one to one training and understands it take time and lots of patience!

Max Max Max

Max at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black and White Border Collie who is age 1 year 4 months

Not 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: 19.052
Approx Age: 1 year, 4 months

Description

Max is a nervous boy who needs his space. He is not keen on close contact but is coming on with his touch training. Max has not been used to new people so he needs time to adjust and feel comfortable with strangers. This handsome boy has come from a home where he was the only pet, however he met family members dogs who he was okay with. Max is strong on lead and prone to getting frustrated and bored easily. As he has come from working stock, he needs to be kept active. Max has a high chase instinct and will chase birds and cats. He has not lived wit other dogs but appears friendly to most he meets on walks.History

Max was brought in to us as his owner could not give him the stimulation he requires. He was adopted very briefly but his frustration on lead proved too much for his adopter. Max was barking at one of his adopter who was digging in the garden, in an attempt to stop his barking, his adopter started patting him and Max redirected and snapped at his owners hand.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for an owner who understands that Max will snap if he is not comfortable. When he is frustrated it is important not to try and touch him to calm him, as this can actually heighten his stress levels. resulting in a redirection bite (frustration displaced onto nearest person). He needs a patient, calm owner who will let him adjust in his own time and will help give him clear, consistent guidance using reward based training. His new owner will need to continue his touch training following the guidance we provide. Max needs a home without children or cats. He would suit a rural home and an owner who has lots of time to help him learn and feel relaxed.

A Male Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19.142
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Introducing Deano!  This very handsome, lively boy loves attention and has endless amounts of energy. He is very friendly but can be a little over the top when meeting new people and may be a little too boisterous for a family with young children. In a previous home he was known for chasing the cat, again he was friendly but very over the top. Here at the kennels he seems ok with some passing dogs but can be reactive to others. Deano is housetrained but doesn’t cope well with being left on his own for too long due to his separation anxiety. He isn’t good with small animals and has attacked a chicken in the past. Deano pulls on the lead and his recall would defiantly need some work, he travels well in the car and behaves at the vets.

History

Deano is looking for a new home due to his previous owners long working hours meaning they didn’t have the time to dedicate to him.

Re-homing Criteria

This lovely boy is looking for an active home where there is someone in most of the time as he doesn’t cope well on his own. A home without young children or cats would suit him best.

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

Reference: 19.091
Approx Age: 6 years

Description

Bruno is a big loveable boy with lots of energy and full of life. He can be very full on and boisterous so  In his previous home Bruno lived with kids and was ok with them but we would recommend not rehoming him with young children as he can be prone to being frustrated easily. He has lived with other dogs before but they were a little too much for him, Bruno has been friendly towards other dogs here at the kennels. We are told he has lived with a cat but isn’t good with livestock. Loud noises tend to scare him. Bruno is housetrained, crate trained and travels ok in the car. He is a big powerful boy and does pull on the lead, his recall is ok but he could do with some help furthering his training. Although friendly towards most strangers, Bruno does see some threat in unfamiliar adult males but can overcome this initial fear with a careful introduction.

History

Bruno’s previous home was on a farm, his owners felt rehoming him was the best thing for him as the farm collies were too full on and tended to go for him.

Re-homing Criteria

Bruno is looking for a new home where he can get help with furthering his training, plenty of exercise and lots of attention. He will need someone with an understanding of the breed, breed experience would be preferred. We are looking for someone who understands he can be prone to frustrated easily and very boisterous if adequate stimulation is not given.

Cap Cap Cap

Cap at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black and White Border Collie who is age 1 year

Not Good With Children Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/107
Approx Age: 1 year

Description

Cap is a very nervous farm collie who has not been socialised or given a gentle approach previously. Since being in the centre we have helped him grow in confidence but this is a slow process as he is still learning to trust people. Cap enjoys the company of other dogs and this has helped his confidence levels. He does however show some redirection towards them if he is frustrated so if he is to share with another dog it must be a non-confrontational dog. Cap has never lived in a house and has only ever known a farm barn so needs time to adjust to new environments and experiences.

History

Cap’s owner took felt he was no use to him as he could not get him to work sheep.

Re-homing Criteria

We will only be rehoming Cap to a rural home with an owner who is understanding of the needs of very nervous ex farm collies. He requires an owner who is gentle and patient and will give Cap plenty of time to grow in confidence and help provide him with reassurance and guidance. Cap needs a home without children.

Casey Casey

Casey * Reserved * at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Liver and White Springer Spaniel who is age 4 years

Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/125
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

Casey has come from a home where she had little experience of new environments and lead walks. She now finds new places and being out on walks very overwhelming and becomes frustrated and stressed. As she has been under-stimulated for her spaniel behaviour she has learned that outside means the opportunity to search and/or chase. Casey has resorted to spinning obsessively on lead as a coping mechanism so in order to help her overcome this, she is being taught to focus her attention on her ball and rewarded for calm behaviour. Casey is very affectionate and settles well in the house once she is familiar with her surroundings. She has been used to other spaniels previously so could share her home with another dog if the match is right, however in order for her to receive as much one to one training as possible, she may be best as an only dog at this stage. Casey will try to chase birds and is not good with small furry animals. She has not had much experience of travelling in a car. Her recall training is coming on but this will need continued.

History

Casey was originally brought in to us in Jan 2019 after her owner passed away. Very little information was given from the neighbours about Casey’s history other than, Casey’s owner did not leave the house often so she was not used to walks. She was rehomed 2/2/19 but returned a few months later as her spinning behaviour was too excessive for her adopter to manage and they could not give her the ongoing guidance she requires.

Re-homing Criteria

We are looking for a very specific home for Casey, with a dedicated owner who understands she needs ongoing consistency in her training. She requires a rural home away from busy areas and lots of distractions so her socialisation and triaining can continue at an appropriate level. Her owner must be able to continue her focus training which involves teaching her obedience skills for reward, including walking calmly on the lead, and teaching a ball-retrieve. Although Casey has been good with the 12 year old she lived with briefly, we feel she would suit a quiet, adult only home at this stage.

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

Reference: 19/158
Approx Age: 10 years, 9 months

Description

This little cutie is called Bronwyn, she loves to potter about and will do anything for a biscuit! She likes company but isn’t keen on close contact and will let you know if she is uncomfortable. Bronwyn tends to keep clean in her kennel which would suggest she is housetrained. During her time with us she has stayed in a foster home where she lived with other dogs and was great with them. We were told from her original home that she can be very nervous around children and with her tendencies to not like close contact we wouldn’t feel comfortable rehoming her to a family with children. Bronwyn doesn’t have experience with cats, she travels well in the car and has been known to snap in situations where she is nervous like at the vets.

History

She was originally adopted from us in May of 2016 but recently came back for foster care due to her owner being in hospital. Sadly, Bronwyn’s owner passed away so she is now back in our care.

Bronwyn is looking for a home without young children. She needs someone who has a gentle approach and understands the importance of a good dog diet as she is prone to weight gain.

Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19.152
Approx Age: 9 years

Description

Alfie is a nervous wee boy but very sweet when he gets to know you.

At the centre Alfie has not chewed or destroyed anything- he barks if he hears noises, but he does settle. We have separated the 3 dogs and feel they will be better going to a new home each. Alfie can be wary of strangers and seems to prefer females. He does bark at anything new including dogs but is friendly to them. Alfie can be sick when traveling in a car but he wasn't sick in our van. He hasn’t met cats but he has seen livestock and wasn’t bothered by them, he is good on the lead.

History

Alfie came into the centre with 2 other dogs, they were chewing things and barking when left. The owners felt they needed a home where they won’t be left on their own too much.

Re-homing Criteria

Alfie needs a home where he won’t be left for too long. He has lived with 3 children who he was good with but he has bitten before, so care needs to be taking. He isn’t keen on situations that aren’t predictable. He would be fine as an only dog but he is ok with dog company. He is house trained but was having the odd accident in the house so he will need a refresher course.

Description

Ollie is a lovely friendly boy who like just about everyone he meets. He enjoys his walks and has been used to meeting up with other dogs in his neighbourhood for walks at the park. Ollie is house trained and likes his home comforts. He has been used to company in the house and can be unsettled if he is on his own for too long.

Akamaru Akamaru Akamaru

Akamaru at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male silver and white Husky

Not Good With Other Pets Good With Dogs

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/034

Description

Akamaru is a big beautiful boy with lots of energy. He can be wary of strangers initially and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. Once he knows you he is very affectionate. He has shared his home with children for only very brief amount of time and we are told he was okay with them, however given the fact that he has shown some resource guarding behaviour, we would not recommend him sharing his space with young infants. Akamaru loves his toys and walks. He is very strong on lead and will need an owner who has experience with the breed. Akamaru was fine with the cats he originally grew up with, however he has proved predatory to new cats  so we would NOT rehome him with cats or small furries. Adopters should also be aware that the sight of livestock, rabbits etc on walks excites him to levels that are difficult to control. He is friendly towards dogs he meets, but may be a bit too full on for small breeds. He can be unsettled when left on his own in the house. Akamaru will need an owner who can provide him with further guidance.

History

Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house. He was rehomed for a very brief amount of time but proved predatory towards new cats. He was rehomed but his adopters moved to a smaller property and could not provide him with the ongoing training he requires.

Re-homing Criteria

Akamaru needs an owner who can continue his training using positive reward based methods. He is very active and requires lots of exercise. Akamaru needs a home without cats and other small animals. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young children as he needs further guidance to help his resource guarding issues.

Reference: 19/160
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Bere is a gorgeous boy with lots of energy! He can be prone to feeling frustrated easily if he is not given enough stimulation. He loves his toys, especially balls but he has an obsession with sticks and if he gets one he will try and guard it from you therefore he must be guided not to play with them. Bere knows basic commands and mixes okay with some dogs. He is however reactive to some on lead, and needs help to be taught an alternative to barking at other dogs, such as sit and focus on his ball. This active boy has met visiting children but needs an adult home as he has shown signs of being uncomfortable with people in his space. Bere is sensitive to noises such as fireworks and thunder. He likes his large crate and is housetrained. Bere has lived with a cat who we are told he will play with, but the cat tried to avoid him so he may be too overbearing for cats.

History

Bere was handed in for rehoming as he was uncomfortable with the male owner in the house. The male owner was also anxious around dogs and after leaning over Bere to stroke, him Bere snapped at his face and marked his lip.

Re-homing Criteria

Bere requires an adult only home without children. He is looking for an owner who understands the needs of nervous collies and that he can be uncomfortable with people in his space. Bere will need someone who can provide him with ongoing training.
