Rural Homes Required for Rescue Dogs

Dogs Trust Glasgow is currently caring for an array of four legged friends that require rural locations for their forever homes. 

Whether home is a but and ben or bungalow, new owners are sought in quiet areas for canines that await a new leash of life in the countryside.  

Sandra Downie, Glasgow Rehoming Centre Manager said:

“It’s not just humans who want to escape to the country, lots of our fantastic dogs are seeking new homes in rural areas.  At present we have a dozen dogs that have to be rehomed in quiet locations away from neighbouring dogs. 

“Our Rehoming Centre in Uddingston is located in quite a built-up area. The majority of people who get in touch with us are looking for a dog that can cope with going to public parks, doggy day care, being around strangers, children and other dogs. For a lot of our dogs this busy life is not for them.  They require regular routines and a much quieter life with minimum interaction with strangers, which includes being exercised in areas that are largely free from other dogs. 

“One such dog is Jack Russell Terrier Arthur, who is an independent older boy who needs a home with few visitors as strangers worry him.  Arthur takes his time to get to know new people, but once the bond is made, his sweet nature shines through.  

“It is so important that through our thorough behaviour and veterinary assessments, we match each individual dog to the right person.  We hope that by appealing for people in rural locations to get in touch, we will find the perfect forever homes for all of our dogs that will greatly benefit from the quiet life.”
