Donnie and Dougie- Reserved
Hi! I’m Donnie the Boston and this is my brother Dougie the Pug. I’m a sprightly 8 years old and the little ‘un is 6. Aren’t we a handsome pair?
We’ve always been together and we want to keep it that way so we’re looking for a forever home where we can provide and receive double the love and cuddles.
I’ve only got one eye and I’ve lost a chunk of ear – both were caused in a fight. Just adds to my masculine charm I think! Otherwise we’re both healthy and properly housetrained.
We’re not used to living with children so we’d prefer to go to a home where any children are aged 12 or over. Cats might be ok – we’ve lived with them before and we don’t react to them when we’re out on a walk. No other dogs though – we want all the attention, snuggles, love and food for ourselves!
I love to cuddle up on a lap and go to sleep. Dougie is a typical Pug – he’ll follow you everywhere so forget about showering or peeing in peace. He also loves his hoomans and likes to be snuggled up with one as often as possible.
We’re in a foster home in Glasgow at the moment so once you’ve realised you can’t resist us you’ll have to travel here to meet, fall in love and collect us.
Our adoption fee is £500 – bargain!
PLEASE READ! If you have already submitted an adoption application in the last year you don’t need to do anything – UKBTR will automatically consider it, though you can let them know if you’re interested (and why wouldn’t you be?). Otherwise if you’d like to be considered to adopt us please submit an Adoption Application form,. If you have any questions about the adoption process please read ‘Adoption Procedures’ on the website.
Dulcie is looking for a special home. She’s an 18 month old girl with some issues resulting in aggression, and she has bitten several times. She guards her food, her bed and her place on the sofa. Ongoing work and training is needed, and she may never be ‘cured’ but her behaviour could be managed by avoiding triggers and taking advice from behaviourists.
She also needs stability as she’s already been moved around a few times in her short life, including a spell in the sanctuary. The last thing she needs is to be moved on again so we’re looking for a special person to take her on a foster-to-adopt basis. This person must have experience, be willing to listen to and follow advice & guidance from qualified behaviourists (which we will provide) and not give up on her. It is vital that instructions and advice are followed.
The other side of Dulcie is very sweet – she’s very affectionate, likes her cuddles and enjoys playing. She loves her walks and going in the car.
Because of her aggression we won’t rehome her with children, no matter how dog-savvy they are. She gets on with other dogs so we will consider a one-dog household.
So if you have the time and commitment she needs and are willing to put the work in you may be who she’s looking for. If you have already submitted an application please comment below to register your interest. If not please submit an application form, available to download from the files section on here or from our website.
Please note that a homecheck will be required and the owner of the sanctuary will want to have a discussion with potential fosterers before a decision is made.
Her adoption fee will be £450
HOMECHECK DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS: a check of the interior of your property will be conducted remotely via video conferencing; therefore please do not apply if you do not have the facilities for this (i.e. smart phone/ tablet device/laptop). Photographs will NOT be accepted.
