Breed: Turkish Kangal

Gender: Male

Age: 21/07/2017

Size: Medium

Good with dogs: Yes, playful  but can be a bit bossy when he has had enough

Good with cats: Scared of cats and avoids them

Good with children: TBC 

History:  is DOB is around 21/7/2017 so her will be 4 in July ... Titan is a Turkish Kangal cross who was bread to be a larger size obviously for fighting (hence the reason his ears have been chopped off  [😢] ), but what his “breeders” did not take into account when the cross bred him was that the mix was going to leave him with all 4 legs with joint issues and a nature that means he would not harm a flea  [❤️]

Sadly because of his massive size (he’s around 60 kilos, but he’s bigger than his weight if that makes sense) the vets have advised against any corrective surgeries, because if anything goes wrong with even one surgery he would not be able to manage on three legs and he is far too big a dog to be able to lift manually.

This is not all bad news though as Titan manages perfectly well and doesn’t even need medication. The only issue is that he is not a dog that can go for walks. He is very active (in short bursts) and very playful with the other dogs (he loves a game of chase) and needs a home with a BIG garden (at least a quarter of an acre) where he can bumble about and take things at his own pace.

Titan LOVES people  [❤️] [❤️] [❤️]  He is at his happiest leaning into you and having his big head scratched and ears rubbed and is just the gentlest of souls.

We are looking for a nice adult only home (no young children due to his size) which is preferably rural (not many town houses have the size garden he requires) where he will be the centre of someone’s life and get all the love and attention he so needs. In return he will love you unconditionally and at the end of the day, what is more important than them unconditional love of a dog ???

History: 
Tasha is a lovely but nervous girl who has developed a good relationship with her foster parents. She can be wary of strangers, in particular men. Tasha would prefer a quieter child free home. Tasha has been living in foster with another dog, this has proven to be really helpful to Tasha and she takes a lot of reassurance from him and is unsettled at home if he is not there so Tasha was benefit from having another dog in the house to continue to boost her confidence. Once Tasha has began to trust you she is a delight to have around and will want to follow you around all day. Tasha walks generally well on a lead but is however reactive to others dogs and at times other people if she feels they are too close to her. We feel Tasha would do best in a quiet/rural area, potentially with private land as she loves to run around! Tasha copes well in the house alone as long as the other dog is there. Tasha is incredibly affectionate and loving and will make the perfect companion. We have had her in foster for over a year, I love having her with us but I do feel there is a perfect home out there for her.

History: Born Feb 2014 Lady came to the UK over 18 months ago along with her sister Bella and as the two girls had lived together in the shelter in RO all their lives, we decided to make it our mission to rehome them both together. As both dogs were quite different in size and personality this proved quite difficult, but finally they got the perfect home offer and away they went. Unfortunately things didn’t work out for them as a pair and the lady who adopted them could not cope with their behaviors, so it was decided that she would return Lady, but not until we found her another home to go straight into. This happened fairly quickly as we had recently rehomed an older lady who was again perfect for her. Lady settled into life there very quickly and was the perfect dog, but unfortunately she managed to slip past a visitor one day and escaped. Lady was a dog known for her Houdini tricks and although she did not go far and was caught very quickly, it was decided that she would come back into rescue as the adopter was worried that if it ever happened again the outcome may not be so favorable. So several months down the line Lady is still in rescue and we simply cannot understand why as she really is the most perfect and beautiful of dogs. She is coming up seven years old, tall medium in size (like a rough collie), she walks on a lead, is clean in the house, is crate trained, loves people and is great with other dog’s  [❤️]  The only downside to her is that she is an opportunist escapee and there is not a door, gate or lock she cannot open, so whoever is lucky enough to adopt her needs to be extra vigilant with security.

Lady likes nothing more than being loved and will lay for hours having tummy rubs and letting you bring her stunning coat. She also loves going to the groomers and having a wash and blow dry  [😋]

Lady would fit into many homes, but ideally we would be looking for an active home with a nice secure garden and no younger children. Lady would be fine around respectful visiting children, but we feel that at her age in life she is entitled to a quieter pace of life and deserves to be the centre of attention. That said, she is by no means over the hill and will require lots of exercise and can walk for miles and miles and loves to do so.

History: Blackie is just turned one and has a neurological condition that means that he constantly twitches. This doesn’t bother him at all and he is a perfectly normal dog otherwise.

He is small size and sort of resembles a Lhasa Apso but with corser fur. He should be a lot hairier than he is but had to have his coat clipped right back when he was rescued due to the state he was in so is in the process of regrowing his floof  [😋]

He doesn’t take any medication, nor will he ever need to as he just is what he is ... A wobbly dog  [❤️]

Blackie is clean in the house, crate trained and walks on a lead. We are looking for a quieter home for him and think he would prefer to be an only dog as some of the dog’s bully him a little because of his disability and I think it would be nice for him to be an only child.

We are looking for a child free quieter home with a nice secure garden and where he will get lots of little shorter walks and be the centre of someone’s universe. He will be up to doing longer walks given time and if they are built up to slowly, but is never going to be a dog that will bag any Munro’s.

Breed: Husky/lab cross

Gender: Male

Age: 3 years old

Size: Medium

Good with dogs: Yes

Good with cats: No

Good with children: No due to nervousness

History: Hector was rescued as a pup and rehomed but through no fault of his own has been returned. His owners had one or two problems with their neighbours and one of these incidents had a severe effect on the little fella that they have not been able to overcome so it was decided it would be better for him to come back to the fold. I must say I am delighted how quickly he has settled in and so happy to see him so happy again. He has palled-up with Elsa (was Mo) and the two are having a blast. I would dearly like to get him back out into a home of his own again ASAP but do strongly feel that he needs to live with at least one other lively playful dog. Hector is neutered and vaccinated. He is quite nervous of strangers (for about 2 minutes) but once your friend he is just a bundle of joy. He walks well in a lead but it was reported back from his past adopters that he was quite nervous around busy traffic so we would be looking for either a nice quiet country location or someone who would be happy to help him work though his fears. Hector looks very Labrador-cross-Huskyish and has the most amazing curly tail!

Good with cats: Not yet cat tested

Good with children: No as she needs a quieter home

History: Meet Granny (Real name Emma), I have no idea why she’s called Granny as she’s only seven and a half, but the name seems to have stuck and she answers it, so Granny it is  [😋]

Granny comes from Macedonia where she lived a terrible life until she was rescued by some lovely ladies we work with out there. She was taken off the streets and given the love and care she needed and when she was ready to travel came to our rescue in Scotland.

Granny is just the most perfect dog EVER and we really cannot understand why she’s not been snapped up as she’s been with us over 6 months now ... She is slightly bigger than your average dog, but not enormous and a lot of her size is her fabulous thick coat.

She is clean in the house, walks nicely on a lead and lives quite happily alongside all the other dogs we have here and just keeps herself to herself and is never a minutes bother.

Home wise we see Granny in an adult only home as we think the coming and goings of a busy family would not be for her as she likes a quiet life. She likes to lay out in the sunshine (when we have any), so a home with a nice garden would be a must.

Granny would be more suited to a rural home away from the hustle and bustle of busy streets and as much as she’s never going to be bagging herself any Munro’s she does like a decent walk.

Granny is fully vaccinated, microchipped, has her own passport and is in perfect health, but only has sight in one eye. She does have two eyes, but the vet doesn’t think one of them works very well, but she manages just fine.
