  • Hailes Castle Walk

    Our "Monday Meander" this week was the East Linton to Hailes Castle ciircular walk. It was a glorious morning and apart from a couple of cyclists on the minor road you walk along for part of the walk we didn't bump into another soul. The riverside trail is lovely and we even spotted a couple of deer. The ruins of Hailes Castle are worth a visit and dogs are allowed onto the grounds. Daisy and Sam are pooped out now =) Hope everyone else manages to enjoy the weather today - much nicer than the weekend was!

  • Bruno is so FAB - can you offer him a forever home

    Bruno  stole our hearts!  He has the most adorable characterful face and a smashing personality to match.

    He loves people, cuddles, a cosy bed and a favourite toy.

    Bruno picked out the Bento ball with its everlasting treat as soon as he came into the paddock and wasn't to be parted from it.  He enjoyed running around with it, in between getting some all important cuddles.  When it was time to leave the paddock he was determined to take the treat ball with him and carried it all the way back to his kennel - wee scone!

    Bruno may be a senior citizen but he is a really smashing boy.  He is good with other dogs and the only reasons he seems to be getting overlooked in the kennels are the fact that he is a staffie and an OAP.  It is such a shame as he would be a fantastic addition to any home - so calm and loving!

    It breaks our heart to think that this lad, who should be chilling out in his golden years, has been overlooked in the kennels.  Can you help us find his his perfect forever home?

    Please do consider visiting him at EDCH.  We know he would be delighted to see you.  If you are not in a position to rehome it would be fantastic if you could share his details.  This older lad so deserves a new home!  Good Luck Bruno - you are a STAR!

    Thank to Bruno for modelling one of the tweed collars with removable Bow ties which was VERY generously donated by Dawn from Bowzos too!
    Earlier last week we spent an afternoon at The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use. Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give. Every day we are featuring a different dog in need of a home and hoping we may be able to help them find a forever home.  We are hoping Bruno will be one of the lucky ones!

  • Beautiful Buster has spent too long in kennels - can we help him find a new home?

    Earlier this week we spent an afternoon at The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use. Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give.  Every day we are featuring a different dog in need of a home and hoping we may be able to help them find a forever home.

    Buster is another long stay OAP staffie.  This poor lad is so stressed in kennels but has been in EDCH since 2011!  Being a senior lad and a staffie means that he is often overlooked but this boy has so much to offer.  Buster is the three "Bs".  He is Bright, Bouncy and Big Hearted.  He really is a special and very loving boy and we just can't understand why he hasn't found his forever home long before now.

    Although Buster is not keen on other dogs he absolutely adores people and loves nothing more than spending time getting cuddles and playing with toys (he had great fun with the Tuffy 3 Way Tugger and the Supersnake n the paddock).  He is very fit for a senior citizen.  He does get a little stressed when left on his own but he doesn't have severe separation issues and with a little work he would likely be happy to curl up on the couch and chill.

    It breaks our heart to think that this lad, who should be chilling out in his golden years, has been overlooked in the kennels for the last three years.  Can you help find his perfect forever home?

    Please do consider visiting him at EDCH.  We know he would be delighted to see you.  If you are not in a position to rehome it would be fantastic if you could share his details.  This older lad so deserves a new home!  Good Luck gorgeous Buster!

  • Lovely Stella is looking for her forever home

    Earlier this week we spent an afternoon at The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use. Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give.  Every day we are featuring a different dog in need of a home and hoping we may be able to help them find a forever home.
    Stella is a super bright Collie Mix.  Brought into EDCH as a stray she would make a fantastic addition to any family.  She is great around other dogs (she happily played ball whilst in the paddock with 3 other very active dogs) and she absolutely loves to play ball with you (we had to encourage her to stop for a drink of water as I think she would have played fetch the entire time if she could have).  She is clever, calm and has good basic obedience.  What more could you want in a furry companion!

    Stella would love a visit from you if you think you can offer her a forever home.  Please do get in touch with EDCH if you would like to arrange to visit her.  Please do share her details even if you are not in a position to offer her a forever home as the more people that get to see her the more chance there is of her finding a new home :-)
    Stella did a stellar job of modelling some of our bandanas and had great fun with the super squeaky JW Ball.

  • Trevor a golden boy in his golden years is looking for a new home

    Earlier this week we spent an afternoon at The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use. Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give.  Every day we are featuring a different dog in need of a home and hoping we may be able to help them find a forever home.

    Today we are featuring Trevor.   We totally fell in love with some of the long stay, OAP staffies including Trevor.  Trevor is the three "Ts".  Tactile, Tranquil and Terrific.  Despite being an older boy he is very fit and would still be happy to go for good walks and he loves playing with toys.  He adores cuddles and would be happy to snuggle up with you on the couch.  We were truly saddened to hear that Trevor has been in the kennels for 3 years!  3 Years?!  He is so lovely and although he may not be a fan of sharing his home with another dog he is just so great with people and a lovely calm lad who would make such a great companion.  We hate the idea that this boy has been over looked just because he is a senior citizen black staffie.  If you can get past these stereotypes you will find such a charming and fun lad who deserves to find a couch to call his own!

    Trevor 2 resize
    We are so desperate to see Trevor in a forever home to enjoy his golden years.  Please do consider visiting him at EDCH (he does have some medical issues that the staff will chat you through when visiting but they should not put you off this smasher of a lad).  We know he would be delighted to see you.  If you are not in a position to rehome it would be fantastic if you could share his details.  This older lad so deserves a new home!  Fingers crossed for Trevor!
    Trevor had great time playing with the large I Squeak ball we donated and just didn't want to be parted with it :-)

  • **CAN YOU HELP MARC FIND HIS FOREVER HOME?**


    **CAN YOU HELP MARC FIND HIS FOREVER HOME?**

    Earlier this week we spent an afternoon at The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use. Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give.  Every day we are featuring a different dog in need of a home and hoping we may be able to help them find a forever home.

    Today we are featuring Marc.  He is the most adorable young neutered Lab cross.

    marc resize

    We had such fun with him in the paddock on Monday.  He is full of fun, loves to play, is super friendly and very responsive when using toys and treats as a motivator.

    He will make a smashing addition to any household and will respond well to training to bring on his basic manners etc.  He is very friendly with other dogs he has met and could be homed with another dog or in a child savvy household.

    Marc came into the Dog and Cat Home as a stray and he has a mild balance condition which affects his mobility ever so slightly.  He has slight coordination issues and can be a bit wobbly on his feet.  It doesn't get in the way of him being a very happy and playful pup and he is still very active and enjoys a good romp!  It will mean that his new owner will need to be aware of this and manage his exercise etc appropriately.

    How can you resist that face?  Marc is currently looking for a new home and it seems a shame that this boy who has so much going for him is in rescue.  If you are in a position to offer Marc a new home we are sure the EDCH would love to hear from you.  They always welcome visitors at the Centre and encourage people to meet dogs they are interested in and get to know them a bit better.

    If you are not in a position to offer him a home we would be so grateful if you could share Marc's details in the hope that we can help him secure a great forever home soon!

    Thanks too Marc for doing such a great job of modelling the front range harness from Ruffwear (big thanks to Ruffwear UK for donating this and the Orbee Tuff Ball pictured below to the EDCH).

  • Why hasn't Sam found his forever home?

    Earlier this week we spent an afternoon at the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home getting to know some of the fantastic doggies looking for homes and taking some goodies down for them to put to use.  Cheryl from Edinburgh Dog Photography very generously gave up her time to take some amazing shots which we hope will let people see just how much these fantastic dogs have to give.
    First up is Sam who we are all totally smitten with.  He is just the most happy, bouncy, fun boy who has bags of energy and enthusiasm.  We cannot believe that he has been at EDCH for two years!!!  He is so lovely.  Maybe he has the curse of the Brindle Boy.  The RSPCA released stats that suggest that Brindle Dogs spend 50% longer waiting to be rehomed.  We just don't understand this as he has so much love to give and is a real gem of a Lad.
    Sam 2
    He is around 3/4 years old and very playful and loves others dogs and people. He would be happy to go to a home with another dog that would not be put off by his exuberant manner.
    If you are looking for a dog that would delight in doggy sports Sam would be perfect as we think he would likely take brilliantly to agility, flyball (he is very fast) or Cani Cross.  He walks brilliantly if you have a squeaky toy in tow and he is very eager to learn so we don't imagine it would be too long before his basic manners would be tip top!
    He had an absolute blast in the paddock and we spent ages playing with toys with  him (he LOVED supersnake and squeaky balls).  Cheryl had a task getting good shots as he was so fast :-)
    We would so love to hear that Sam has found a forever home.  He absolutely deserves it and he is so lovely we just cant understand why he has been overlooked until now.  He would be a bit too bouncy for our own wee nervous boy otherwise we would have loved another addition to our household.
    If you are interested in visiting Sam or finding out more about him or one of the many other lovely dogs at the centre please get in touch with the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home and if you don't have room for another doggy we would be ever so grateful if you could share Sam's details in the hope of helping him find his forever home soon!

    Sam did a fantastic job of modelling our blue polka dot bandana and enjoyed playing with the durable JW I Squeak Ball :-)
