Dumfries canine centre reaches rehoming milestone

The Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre has reached another milestone, just a couple of months after celebrating its tenth birthday.

The charity re-homes dogs, and they've just passed the 3,000 mark.

Bob the black lurcher is a former stray who had spent more than four months in the Rescue Centre.

Being neither a puppy, a famous breed or a popular colour meant that for some time Bob was typical of the type of animal that gets stuck in kennels and is difficult to re-home.

The centre, based in Glencaple on the outskirts of Dumfries, claims to have rehomed more than 3,000 dogs over the past ten years.

Dozens of rescue dogs have been out on the streets of Dumfries as part of a major fundraising day for a local animal charity.

Dumfries and Galloway Canine rescue centre finds new homes for around 300 dogs every year.
