Can anyone ID these bushes, and are they suitable for cuttings?


I have these three bushes in the garden. I'm pretty indifferent to them in our garden in particular, and I cut them all back fairly aggressively when needed, but I wouldn't mind taking some cuttings for when we move (hopefully next year if the COVID situation lets us).

Fairly sure the one with big leaves is a laurel but I'm not great with anything that isn't veg or flowers. It grows like mad and is a bit of a pain to be honest. No idea what the other two are, although a neighbour is adamant that one of her dogs ate a bit and it made him ill so if anyone can confirm that they're toxic to dogs that might help.

    Euonymus japonica of  various forms.  Easy from cuttings. Some Euonymus are toxic to dogs, but no mention of these in the list of plants which are toxic to pets.
    Laurel as you suspect.
