Rowan

Kelpix x puppy, 6 weeks old, male

 

Dear liitle Rowan is the last of Katie,s pups needed a new home, he is a fun loving full of life little chap that will need full training and socialisation. 

Blue

Please note Blue is NOT at our rescue centre we are just helping Blind Dog Rescue advertise him, so please contact them direct if you feel you can give him the new start he deserves.

 

Border Collie Blue was recently adopted by a family who are experiencing severe health problems now and are sadly unable to keep him. Poor Blue has had a chequered start to his life. He was originally rescued from a bad situation as a puppy but his rescuer was unable to keep him due to mobility problems. He was adopted through us a few months ago but now needs to move on again. We are very keen for his next home to be his last. Blue is approximately one year old. He is blind. This is what his current owners say about him: Blue is a fantastic young dog, playful, kind, happy and everything that goes with it. He eats well and is very energetic. He loves being outside as long as you're with him as he loves his family. Blue is still rather nervous due to poor socialisation as a puppy and will need someone who can work with him to get him used to new situations and other dogs. He has improved massively since being in his current home but is still a 'work in progress'. Blue is very affectionate and loves cuddles. There's nothing he likes better than playing with his ball and I'm sure that his love of toys will be a fabulous training aid for him. Blue can live with a dog-savvy cat. His current family have a cat who doesn't mind him at all. Blue likes to play with her but he tends to get excited, but not aggressive. Blue and the cat have taken to drinking from the same water bowl and do tolerate each others presence. Blue is strong and doesn't know his own strength. He does occasionally run into things and that includes your shins, but it is always accidental! Due to his size and activity levels, he cannot be homed where there are young children who could potentially be knocked over. The ideal home for Blue would be a collie-savvy home where his brains can be channelled into training. he needs to 'do' something and would benefit from having someone around a fair amount during the day. Blue is neutered, chipped and vaccinated. If you are interested in Blue, you would be welcome to speak to his owner.  Blue is currently living in West Lothian.. lease contact bdrukfosters@yahoo.com for a foster home or bdrukrehoming@yahoo.com for a forever home

Winter

Tan and White, Rough Coat, Male, 18 Months Old Collie x Lab

 

We were told that although he is fine with other dogs out and about, he did not get on with the other dogs in his previous home, so an adult home as an only dog would be preferable, and definitely no cats!
Because of his exhuberance and bounciness we feel that he would be best suited to a home with a large garden, to give him plenty of space, and an owner who is prepared to work on his training. He is actually very responsive (and is already sitting nicely to have his lead put on before going for his walk), but nobody has yet taken the time to train him. 
His ideal owner would perhaps be a canicross competitor, or someone who is invoved in other active dog sports. A fit and active person who enjoys the rewarding interaction of training, and would like a fun and enthusiastic canine partner.

Marley

Blackand White, Short Coat, Male

 

Marley is only a youngster and has come in to The Spot as a stray. 
Marley is lovely with other dogs, but can be a little fearful of men at the moment.
We would like to find a quiet, rural home for him, where he will have other doggy company, and where his owner has the time and commitment to gradually introduce him to the outside world, with no pressure.

Jess has come into rescue from a home where she was getting no training. She is VERY friendly and VERY enthusiastic and FULL of energy

Lassie

Black and White, Short Coat, Female, 2 Years Old

 

Sadly Lassie is being returned to the rescue to spend christmas in kennels, this sweet natured girl does not have a bad bone in her body and is needing a home that will give her the time and space she needs.  She is looking for a quiet enviroment and home with experienced owners as she is very unsure of the outside world. With dogs like Lassie it is not a quick fix or a lot of cuddles that will help her recover it is time and compassion that she needs and deserves.

Robbie ( Reserved )

Black and White, Short Coat, Male, 10 Months Old

 

This is sad,sweet Robbie,who is looking for a loving home where he can become a life long companion for some lucky person. He was bred for work ,but has proved to be too sensitive for the job. He has never known kindness or friendship and therefore is very shy and withdrawn.Robbie will soon gain confidence with a gentle approach, a kind voice, and lots of treats.It is important that he adjusts in his own time and is not rushed. Robbie will require an experienced collie/rescue person with an understanding of this wonderful breed,to bring out his naturally lovely temperament. He will adapt to his new life, once he gains trust and will grow into a super young dog.Robbie needs an outdoor life , with a large secure garden ,and company for most or all of the day. He can also live with another canine friend.
If you are looking for that 'extra special’ boy ,and you feel you have the time to give him,then Robbie is the one! Please call Gill if you are interested in giving Robbie a home to call his own.

Merlin

Tri-colour, Short Coat, Male, 8 Years Old

 

Merlin came to us a few years ago from another rescue that asked us to help him as he had suffered a lot of abuse at the hand of man. Because of his issue,s he will always have a home with us here but as his best friend and partner in crime Connie has found a new home we thought we would try again to find this special lad his own home. Merlins wish list is not very long but he will need a very extra special person to help him. Whilst he is good around the other dogs we feel he would be best as an only dog, he really hates men so is looking for his own special lady. He needs someone who will be around all the time as he gets scared on his own, he is a typical collie and small furries might be too much of a temptation. We know this is a big ask but with so many special people out there its always woth a try.
