Truelove harnesses from £21.50, halti double ended leads from £10 and chain leads with free caribiner at £9.50 are now available to purchase from our online store!
Rocky, 5 years old, German Shepherd Cross
Rocky is a lovely boy who came to us from Romania where he had lived with another male GSD.
This lovely boy is very affectionate and walks well on the lead. He walks out with the other rescue dogs without issue BUT has been involved in a couple of spats when playing off lead.
He is suffering in the kennel environment and spends most of his time stressed. When out of the kennels he is calm and happy.
Rocky went on foster for a brief period of time and his carers said he was a joy to have in the house.
Rocky is ready for adoption. He is fully vaccinated, assessed, microchipped, treated for parasites and neutered. Assessments can be made available to potential adopters. His adoption donation is £350 which goes directly to saving the lives of other dogs like Rocky.
If you are interested in meeting him please complete an application adoption form which you will find on this website and text Lorraine on 07876561545 to discuss your application.
Bruno, 4 years old, male, crossbreed
Bruno, male, crossbreed, 4 years old
Oh my goodness what a character!! Bruno came to us from Romania where I am sure he has left many broken hearts!!
Although approximately 4 years old nobody seems to have told Bruno this as he behaves like a daft, overgrown pup!! Initially he was very mouthy - trying to play with your hands, arms, jackets etc but this has calmed down a lot. When he gets excited he still tries to mouth but he is given a soft toy and this is working well.
Bruno loves to go a walk and walks well on the lead but has an odd habit of suddenly lying down on the road for a belly scratch! Now whilst this is okay along our country road I don't image it would be as well received in the centre of a busy town. Given that he has the mindset of a young pup he needs a home who will be willing and able to provide the structure and training he so badly needs.
He could live with a calm, older, female dog but his play is excitable and he does tend to get rough. He will need a lot of training and exercise.
Bruno is fully vaccinated, microchipped, flea'd, wormed, assessed and neutered. His assessments are available for any potential adopters. His adoption fee is £350 which goes directly to saving the lives of other dogs just like him.
If you think you could provide the home that he needs and would like to meet him please complete the adoption application form on this website and then text Lorraine on 07876561545 to discuss your application.
Jigsaw, female, approx 7 years old
Jigsaw came to us recently from Portugal.
Initially she was focussed on finding an escape from the exercise arena however she soon settled and is now a firm favourite with the volunteers.
She is fabulous with other dogs, walks well on the lead and during a recent training session with Battersea staff she demonstrated an amazing potential for learning! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks eh!!
As you can see from her picture she is just a total snuggle monster and likes nothing more than cuddles from her human.
Jigsaw is neutered, microchipped, treated for parasites and assessed. Assessments can be made available to potential adopters. Her adoption donation is £350 which goes directly to saving the lives of other dogs like her.
If you would like to meet her please complete the adoption application form on this website then text Lorraine on 07876561545 to discuss your application.
Harvey, male, crossbreed, 7 years old
Harvey came from Portugal a few weeks ago and was one of the first dogs to settle in this new environment. What a beautiful, calm dog this boy is.
He interacts completely appropriately with all the other dogs both during free play time and whilst out lead walking.
He walks beautifully on the lead but really just wants to be close to you and share his love.
He is approximately 7 years old but please bear in mind this is a guess and can be slightly wrong either way.
Harvey is fully vaccinated, microchipped, treated for parasites, neutered and assessed. Assessments can be made available for potential adopters.
His adoption donation is £350 which goes directly to help save the lives of dogs like him. If you would like to meet him please complete the adoption application on this website and then text Lorraine to discuss your application.
Should you wish to meet any of us please complete the adoption application in the first instance.
All dogs leaving Islay Dog Rescue are fully vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, neutered/spayed and assessed. Assessments can be made available to potential adopters.
