Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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.

Harp Harp Harp

Harp at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black and White Collie cross who is age 1 year 3 months

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: 18/224
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: 19/068
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.

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

Reference: 19/006
Approx Age: 3 years, 4 months

Description

This lovely girl is called Cassie (formerly Lassie). She is very sweet, is good with other dogs (although will bark if on lead) and loves human company. She travels well in the car and although a wee bit timid to begin with, is friendly towards strangers. Cassie can be quite distressed when left alone as she suffers with separation anxiety and has been known to be destructive, her previous owners felt by putting her in a thunder jacket she was far more relaxed. She is house trained but will have the odd accident when feeling stressed. Cassie loves a walk but not so keen on going out when it’s raining, she is happy with close handling. We have been told she is ok with cats but has no experience with young children. Cassie is strong on the lead; she has ok recall but it would need some more training. Cassie has double hip dysplasia, she has been checked over by a vet and isn’t in any pain with it.

History

Cassie was brought into the centre as her owner felt they couldn’t give her the time she needed. She did go home for a short while but unfortunately had to be returned due to her separation anxiety causing destructive behaviour.

Re-homing Criteria

Cassie is looking for a home where someone will be in most of the time. She needs an owner who understands the importance of further training and socialising. Her previous owner felt she would do better in a home with another dog for company.

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.

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.

Ben 085 Ben 085 Ben 085

Ben 085 at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Tri Colour Border Collie who is age 2 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/085
Approx Age: 2 years

Description

Ben is a clever boy who likes things a certain way. He did not have the best of starts when he was a young boy and had several homes before he was 1! It took Ben some time to trust people, but his previous owners have put a lot of work into him and we have noticed a huge improvement in his behaviour.  Ben is generally friendly with most dogs who he meets but he will bark at them and sounds quite aggressive. We feel this is from frustration and he will need more training/management for this. He is very keen to learn new things and needs positive training and distractions to avoid confrontational situation. We had a training day with some of our dogs and Ben did very well. Ben hasn't lived with cats or children.

History

Ben was adopted from the centre about a year ago, he originally came to us due to his guarding behaviour and lack of socialisation - his latest owners have done a lot of work with him but unfortunately they have found some of his behaviour not manageable for their situation and have handed Ben back into the centre to find him his perfect match.

Re-homing Criteria

Ben needs a home with an experienced owner who can continue his management program. He needs a home without children. Ben seems to like other dogs but due to his guarding instinct if he was to live with another dog, they would need to have their own space during feeding times etc. Ben is a lovely boy who has a lot to give, he still just needs some extra guidance and understanding.

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.

Jack Jack Jack

A Male Tri Colour Jack Russell Terrier who is age 13 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: 19/101
Approx Age: 13 years

Description

Jack is a golden oldie who loves everyone! The only thing he does not take a shine to is cats and small fluffies such as rabbits. Being a typical terrier, he does like the sound of his own voice and can be vocal when left as he finds it overwhelming. Jack loves company and would much rather be by your side. He is good on lead and loves pottering about the garden. Jack is friendly towards dogs and we are told he has been friendly towards children he has met out on walks. Jack loves his crate and happily goes in to sleep. He travels well in the car and enjoy going out in it. Jack loves nothing more than to sit on your knee for a cuddle. He is worried by fireworks and other loud noises. Jack will toilet if left on his own and as he is old, he will need more opportunities to go out for toilet breaks.

History

Jack was brought in for rehoming after being adopted in 2016, as he was not coping with being left on his own.  Whilst his owner was away on holiday, he was in boarding kennels, but he was being too vocal. Since being at the centre, we have found him to be a little vocal during the day but on site staff report he is quiet through the night.

Re-homing Criteria

Jack will need an owner who won't leave him and doesn't plan on putting him into boarding kennels if they are going away. He loves company and as he isn't getting any younger, he is looking for an owner who has lots of time to devote to this sensitive old boy. We currently have him on Vivatonin,which acts to increase blood flow to the heart, brain and muscle. We have noticed a difference in Jack since being on this.

A Male Black and Tan Crossbreed who is age 5 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: Mac
Approx Age: 5 years

Description

It takes Mac a while to get to know you as he has not been used to lots of new people. He lacks confidence and finds new environments (more so the kennel environment) quite stressful. Mac is strong on lead but walks well on a harness. He is very toy focused and loves to play. Mac is not keen on getting in the car and has not had much experience of it so will need help to overcome his anxieties about traveling. Mac knows basic commands and is housetrained but latterly had been having accident as he was being left too long. He is not keen on other dogs, especially when he is on lead. We are told he can be fine with some dogs off lead but as his frustration levels are high in kennels, we have noticed him to be more reactive towards them here. Mac loves company and has spent a couple of days on foster with one of our staff members to help try and reduce his stress levels. He has been the perfect house guest and is very affectionate.

History

Mac was handed in for rehoming as his owners reported that he recently growled at the child in the house when they tried to take a toy from him.

Re-homing Criteria

Mac hates being on his own and finds busy environment overwhelming. He is not coping well with the kennel environment and has started taking his frustration out by biting his tail and pulling his fur out when he hears other dogs nearby. He has been spending time on foster with a staff member to try and keep him calm and prevent this behaviour. When he is in the home environment he is good and shows no signs of stress. Mac will need someone at home the majority of the time to help keep him company. Mac needs a patient owner who will help him with his on lead frustration when he is out on walks. He needs a home without children or cats.

Reference: 19/104
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

Freddy is a boy who needs a patient, touch as he is a nervous soul. He has come from a home with two other collies who we are told he was okay with, however he needed fed separately from them as he guards his food. Freddy is sensitive to his collar being touched and his lead going on, which may be a result from his past fears. He is getting more confident with this but his new owners must realise this will take time. Freddy does not seem bothered by livestock byuyt as he is working stock his herding instinct may come into action if he was to be off lead near them. Freddy has not encountered cats yet .We are told Freddy likes children and was affectionate with those he knew. However, as he is sensitive to touch, we would recommend extra care is taken if introducing him to children. Freddy is not used to busy places, instead comes from a rural background. He has been used to sleeping in his owner’s bedroom and enjoys a cuddle on the sofa too. Freddy is house trained but doesn’t enjoy getting in the car so will need help to overcome this. Once he knows, you he is a very affectionate boy.

History

Freddy was originally from a farm where he was left outside for long periods of time tied up. We are told he had a firm hand when he was younger so he is nervous of sudden movements and strangers touching him. He was handed in as the landlord would not allow Freddy at the rental property his owners were now in.

Re-homing Criteria

Freddy needs an owner who understands he is worried by touch and busy places. He will need help to overcome his fear of getting in the car and getting his collar touched. We would recommend a quiet home away from busy roads and lots of people. Freddy is currently on a diet and this will need continued until he is at his ideal weight again.

Ajax Ajax Ajax

Ajax at Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

A Male Black and Tan Rottweiler who is age 4 years

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/116
Approx Age: 4 years

Description

This lovely boy was very withdrawn when he first came to the kennels.  However within a few days he began to come out of his shell and is now very friendly with all the staff and loves to get out walks and get attention.  Sadly because of the circumstances of him coming here, we have no previous history of his life. He does not appear to be bothered by other dogs and has been quite clean in his kennel which is a good sign towards possibly having been previously house trained.  As is normal with this breed, he is a strong boy but is quite good on the lead

History

Ajax has been brought to us for re-homing as his previous owner sadly passed away and there was no family to look after him.

Re-homing Criteria

Preferably we can find a home for Ajax with someone who has experience with the breed.  In the correct home he should make a very loyal companion.

A Male Black Labrador cross Rottweiler who is age 3 years

Good With Children Good With Other Pets

Contact Shelter Adoption Form

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

Reference: 19/121
Approx Age: 3 years

Description

When he first arrived Nanuke was very nervous and afraid of us all, however as a few days passed he has grown in confidence and to those he now knows is very friendly.  He is quite needy and likes to be close and cuddled, so much so you can have a large dog attempting to sit on your knee like a small lapdog.  He was good with visiting children in his previous home and not bothered with cats.  He is normally friendly with other dogs, but has been known to snap if they are too much for him.  He is house trained and likes to have the radio playing music left on when alone.  He has not had much experience travelling by car and has been known to be sick at times when he has. Nanuke loves to play fetch and go swimming.

History

Nanuke or Nookie as he seems to prefer was brought to us for re-homing as his owners work hours had greatly increased and he was being left alone for 12 hours every day

Re-homing Criteria

Nanuke needs a home where in the early stages he is allowed to settle in gradually and not forced into anything until he has gained trust in those around him.  Someone who has dealt with a nervous dog before would be ideal.  He is a lovely boy and just needs some understanding to let him flourish.

She appears to be good with other dogs she has met in previous home, she ignored the hens and came across quite timid of the cats. Jess is strong willed and will heard and nip sheep so going forward she will need a home away from sheep and livestock. Jess has met lots of children and been great with them, she has previously lived with an eight year old and loves the playful attention. We have been told she was good in the house and is house trained. Jess isn’t used to the car but was relaxed in the back seat of the van on the way to the kennels, used to farm pickup with dog guard in the past. She is a very affectionate girl and would make a brilliant companion! Although she does pull a little on the lead, she has great recall, she loves cuddles and copes well at the vets.

History

Jess was handed in to the kennels by her previous owner as she was too much for the sheep when working. She was adopted in September last year but sadly had to be returned due to her new owners ill health.

Re-homing Criteria

Jess is very energetic and would benefit from having an active owner. She is looking for a home away from livestock and where there is someone home most of the time as she loves company.

Description

Dodger is a young dog who lacks confidence meeting strangers, however when he comes round he is very affectionate and playful.  His crate appears to have become his refuge thus the guarding when trying to get him out.  This can easily be worked with by offering a ‘high profile’ treat to encourage him and through time he will learn that it is more beneficial for him to come out of the crate rather than seeking refuge within.  He needs to be given time when meeting new people and this needs to be done by allowing him to approach, rather than walking into his space.  Although he has growled and snapped during his first day or two here, he has never bitten.  He is fully house trained and although he barks at other dogs, he is actually friendly with them.  He will however chase cats.  Once he trusts you, Dodger loves attention.  He loves travelling in the car

History

Dodger was brought to us for re-homing as after a change of circumstances within the home, his behaviour had changed and the family were no longer comfortable with him.  He is very frightened of the Vet which is common with some dogs and requires to be muzzled for examination.  He had also begun to resource guard his crate where he slept and would snap when the family tried to get him out.

Re-homing Criteria

Dodger requires a home with an adult only family who will understand his needs and more importantly are willing to follow our instructions by means of positive reinforcement to help him with his needs.  By doing so they will end up with a very nice dog
