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.

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

Reference: 18.240
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Brutus is a very BIG, strong and playful boy who loves attention. He has met young children in the past and been fine with them however he can be very full on so unfortunately, we won’t be rehoming him to a house with small children. He doesn’t like cats and he has never shared his space with other dogs, so we are unsure of how he would act around them. Brutus is house trained but can have the odd accident in new surroundings. He copes ok with visits to the vets and is happy with handling and meeting new people. Brutus can be very vocal when on his own or in busy environments.

History

Sadly, His previous owner passed away, so the family made the hard decision to have him rehomed.

Re-homing Criteria

Brutus is looking for an active home where he will get lots of help with his training and further socialising. He will need a home without young children and preferably without other pets. Somebody with breed experience would be preferred.

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 18/224
Approx Age: 1 year, 3 months

Description

This fun loving, bouncy character was rescued from a pound where he had been placed after straying. He is a very playful chap who loves affection. Harp is very full on and strong on lead. He loves company and can become bored easily if not given enough stimulation. Harp is sociable towards dogs, but may prove too much for some smaller or older dogs. Harp has got more used to travelling in the car now and his adopter says he was good in the boot of the car. Despite toileting in the house on initial arrival, Harp is housetrained. He has been used to a large crate lately and was used when left for an hour or so.   Harp is a fast learner, so with time and consistent training he will make a fab companion! Harp is very affectionate and lots of fun.

History

Rescued from a pound where he was placed as a stray. He was since rehomed for a very short period of time (5 days) but unfortunately returned as the adopter was unable to cope with the training required for him. Harp was then adopted in January, and his adopter reported that he was doing really well with his training, however he proved to much for the other adopter in the household.

Re-homing Criteria

Harp requires a home where he will get lots of physical and mental stimulation. As he is a collie x, he is energetic and prone frustration if bored. He is very full on so is not for the faint hearted. He will need an owner who understands he needs consistent training using rewards based methods. He dislikes cat.

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

Reference: 19/040
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

This lovely girl is called Floss. She is very sweet and loves human company. Her previous owner told us she hasn’t lived with young children but always greeted them in a friendly manner.  Her recall is good but does tend to pull a little when on the lead. Floss is completely uninterested in livestock; we are unsure of how she would act around cats but does seem friendly towards other dogs. She came to the Centre with another Collie who she was happy sharing her space with. Floss can be quite nervous in the vets but doesn’t show any aggression. She was kept in a kennel in her previous home so will need help with house training.

History

Floss was brought in to the Centre as she was from a farm but had no interest in working.

Re-homing Criteria

Floss is looking for a home where she can get plenty exercise and mental stimulation. As she has come from a rural home she will need an owner who is willing to commit to further socialising and training.

Rolo Rolo Rolo

Rolo at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Border Collie who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/035
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Rolo can be a timid girl but is friendly once she gets to know you.  She came in with Dice who she seemed to get on well with but we have found that she isn’t great with female dogs here at the centre.  Rolo has met young children before (5 years and 3 years) and she was fine with them but she has no experience living with children.  Rolo has always been kept outside, we believe that she has never lived inside before so she will require some house training.  She lacks basic training and can be quite scatty on the lead.  Rolo hasn’t had much experience travelling in the car but seemed to be okay travelling to the centre.  We don’t have an exact date of birth for Rolo but we believe she is 2-4 years old.

History

Rolo was handed in for rehoming because her owner didn’t have enough time for her.

Re-homing Criteria

Rolo requires a home with owner who is willing to commit to further training and socialising her.  We don’t believe that Rolo has ever lived indoors so it may take time for her to adjust.

A Male silver and white Husky

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 very aloof with strangers and is not always keen on close handling until he knows you. He has never lived with children and given the fact that he is uncomfortable with new people in his space, 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. We are told Akamaru has lived with cats who he wasn't phased by, however we are also told that he can be aggressive towards new cats out and about. He is friendly towards dogs he meets, but may be a bit too full on for small breeds.

History

Akamaru was handed in for rehoming due to his owners ill health as well as the fact they were moving house.

Re-homing Criteria

Akamaru needs an owner who knows he is not comfortable with new people. He is very active and requires lots of exercise and further training. This big boy is strong and we feel he would suit a home without young chidlren.

Bella loves her toys and is very playful, she now knows some basic commands, she is improving on the harness but she is a very strong and is not for the faint hearted!

Fly has come from a quiet rural home where she has been kennelled outdoors. She is a collie who likes her space and is not keen on close contact until she really gets to know you.

Florence Florence Florence

Florence at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Female Black Crossbreed

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: Border Pets

Description

This dog is not in our Centre.  We are advertising it on behalf of Border Pet Rescue.  To adopt this dog please contact:  Earlston, Scottish Borders, TD4 6DJ | 01896 849090|info@borderspetrescue.org

The following is the information they have given us about her.

Florence is a lovely girl who came in to our care in June 2018 as her owners were unable to give her the care and exercise that she needs.
Although initially Florence is wary of new people, when she gets to know you, she is a friendly, playful and often cheeky girl!
Florence is an escape artist so she will need a completely secure garden with high fencing. She also needs an active home where she will be given plenty of stimulation.
We believe Florence was encouraged to act as a guard dog in a previous home so she still has some of these behaviours – she sometimes barks at people and dogs out on her walks and she will also bark at people behind a fence.
We have introduced Florence to some of the other dogs here at the centre and she got on well with some of them, although she can be a bit rough and full-on at times.
Florence needs a bit work on her basic training, especially her recall as she has very selective hearing!

Anyone who adopts a dog from us is welcome to use Bramble’s Field which is our 10acre field to work on things like recall and also give the dogs a run in a fully secure area.
The centre staff members are available to give ongoing support and help with any issues where possible.

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.  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.  He whines a little whilst travelling in car but with experience this should settle.

History

Shug has been brought along to us for rehoming as he was not getting on with the older dog already in the home.

Re-homing Criteria

An Terrier experienced home would best suit Shug.

Shadow Shadow Shadow

Shadow at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male GSD who is age 5 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: Border Pets
Approx Age: 5 years

Description

This dog is not in our Centre.  We are advertising it on behalf of Border Pet Rescue.  To adopt this dog please contact:  Earlston, Scottish Borders, TD4 6DJ | 01896 849090|info@borderspetrescue.org

The following is the information they have given us about Shadow.

Shadow is around 5 years old and is a German Shepherd Cross. He is looking for an experienced owner who can help him settle into his new home and give him some stability, the poor boy had a few homes before coming in to us so his next home needs to be his forever home. Shadow has been in our care for over a year now through no fault of his own.
Although he is really a gentle giant, Shadow is a very big and powerful dog so anyone interested must seriously consider if they are physically able to manage him. Furthermore, being such a big dog, he will need a home where he has enough space inside and also a fully secure garden which is big enough for him to play in.
Shadow is looking for a quiet home without young children or cats and while he doesn't mind spending a bit time with some other dogs he would really prefer a home where he would be the only dog but we would consider rehoming Shadow with the correct dog.

Due to some experiences in Shadow's previous homes, he doesn't like his rear end being touched much and isn't particularly keen on rough-and-tumble play or being overly excited during play so you must be able to read when he isn't happy with this.

Shadow can take a while to learn to trust new people but when he does, he is your best friend and loves to give a paw!

Anyone who adopts a dog from us is welcome to use Bramble’s Field which is our 10acre field to work on things like recall and also give the dogs a run in a fully secure area.

His new owner will need to continue his touch training. 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.

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