Available for Adoption
We take great care to match a dogs needs and temperament to the ideal owners circumstances, considering many factors. Assessments take time and we are currently receiving applications for new homes that outnumber the dogs available 20 - 1 . However we have dogs arriving twice a month currently. Please be aware we can not cater to specific breed requests.
Please allow 7 days before contacting us regarding your application
We are currently experiencing an unprecidented amount of applications, it may take
up to 3 months or longer to match a dog with your family.
Before applying to adopt one of our dogs please think very carefully about it. Most dogs have a potential life span of around 15 years. Whilst it is not dreadfully expensive to feed a dog on a weekly basis there are other, associated costs, such as vet bills, that can be very expensive especially if the dog is ill or has an accident. We would advise any potential adopter to take out relevant insurance cover. We provide 5 weeks free insurance to all who adopt with us.
Please do not ask to take one of our dogs on a "trial" as we will not agree to that. You are welcome to visit the dog as many times as you like prior to adoption and spend as much time as you like with him/her. In many cases we do not know what the dog has had to live through in the past and we regularly find it can take several months before a dog feels secure and settled in his/her new home. Therefore to take the dog on a brief trial run will only upset the dog's balance and will not prove whether or not the dog will be happy living with you.
The dogs we have available changes very quickly, we will be doing our best to keep this updated.
2 years old
This is Roxy, a 2 year old female Lurcher. She was brought to Islay Dog Rescue from London. Roxy is a very fun loving and energetic girl. She loves to play and would love activities like agility and obedience training. Because of her high energy and medium to large size she would be best suited to an active family with older children. She would be best as an only pet as she would chase small furries given half a chance. However, she does seem to get on with smaller dogs when out on walks. The adoption fee is £400 and if you would like to meet her, please contact Lorraine on 07876561545
Approx. 10 Years Old
Romanian Hound Dog Mix
Currently Fostered in Yorkshire
BEST SUITED AS AN ONLY DOG
Bruin is a lovely dog from Romania looking for his perfect retirement home.
Bruin had a rough start with a poorly tummy and being underweight, as such he is very food motivated and jumps to try and steal food and counter surf the kitchen - he's a big boy so this isn't very difficult!
Since being in foster he has already learned better manners at mealtimes and no longer tries to steal anyone else's food, so with time and patience this habit will improve.
Bruin is clean in the house and there is never a peep out of him during the night, but at breakfast time he becomes very vocal hurrying you up to get his food ready!
Bruin is an older fellow and sometimes struggles to hear and his recall is not consistent.
Bruin walks well on the lead although he is very strong and wants to follow his nose - he likes to say hello to every other dog too.
He is a bit imposing in size and requires patience as well as a firm grip!
Bruin is best suited as an only dog as he gets jealous if he has to share attention with other pets.
Bruin can be a complete klutz at times - it’s not his fault - he's never been trained and never had stability before.
In the right home he will be an amazing companion, but he does need to be with adopters who are willing to work with him, teach him and most importantly love him unconditionally.
If you are interested in Bruin please contact Lorraine on 07876 561545 for more details.
