Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe. We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

Blue is a 7 year old Lurcher. To apply to rehome me please click on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match. Blue is a beautiful boy that loves to have lots of fun and can always be found running around playing with his favourite teddy. Blue loves being outdoors and will happily jump in the car to go on a new adventure where he can sniff and explore all the new sights and smells. Blue is very sweet and loving towards his owners but is worried around unfamiliar people. Blue takes a long time to build a friendship with people, he does not enjoy a lot of fuss and can feel overwhelmed if this is given to quick or too soon.

Type of home needed

Blue would like a quiet home where he can take his time building a friendship with you. We are unsure of Blue's past and he can be mistrustful or worried by too much handling. Blue would love a home with his own garden where he can relax and enjoy life. Blue is looking for an adult only home with owners who have had nervous dogs before.

More about me

Blue is a larger than life character, he is cute and loving and easily makes you laugh with his comical antics. Blue is house-trained, very clever and loves a cosy bed. Blue does need owners to come to the centre several times to build a friendship with him before going to his new home.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Blue, who is based at West Calder (Edinburgh). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
