I've also been looking on many rescue sites in Scotland and they seem to be full of bull terrier and collie types, I think small dogs are snapped up really quickly. But I don't think you'd go wrong with a Shi Tzu or a Lhasa :dog:

And there is a Chiwawa (sp?) on our street that makes me rethink the entire breed.  WHAT a wonderful little thing he is, so funny and so friendly.  He wears a light-up collar at night and looks like a teeny tiny UFO coming down to say hi.

Sadly the ones I've met have been quite nasty  >:(

If it’s anything like a lot of the rescues in the NE of England, the rescues will have waiting lists for both certain breeds and also “type” of dog and so they never make the websites. Only the staffie / lurcher / collie type dogs often don’t meet anyone’s criteria on the waiting lists so are the ones you see advertised.

Checked the price of puppies last week, they seem to have doubled at least since the last time I was looking.  :o

And they'll be on rescue after lockdown ends when folk are back at work or ther'ss no money to feed them

Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
