Freddy | T286

FreddyMale, Young, Small

I am worried that Freddy is going to be one of those dogs who just slips through the net. Like Bridou (our last urgent appeal) and Némo, both of whom are still at the refuge, Freddy arrived at just the wrong time. He was not a puppy, but neither was he an adult. So he was too young to appeal to people looking for a puppy (and we have lots of pups), but people looking for a calmer older dog would not be interested in him, either. Freddy was born in January this year, and sadly it looks like he is doomed to grow up at the refuge. Having said that, Freddy is making the most of it. He is busy playing with his kennelmate and bouncing around as much as he can within the confines of kennel life. If you are after a young, lively dog, then please give Freddy a chance. He is desperate for love and will make a great family friend.

Princess | T287

Princess female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Princesse is yet another pretty young girl who arrived at the SCPA in June. She was born in June 2017, so really is just out of puppyhood. She is nervous of people but with the help of the dog with whom she is sharing her kennel, is making rapid progress. Once out of her kennel she is happy to walk and is actually quite good on a lead. We know that whoever adopts this lovely girl will have some work, but we know that it will be well worth it. Why not come along and walk her and see for yourself.

Prosper | T304

Prosper male fauve crossMale, Young, Medium

Oh, what a fabulous boy Prosper is. Lovers of the fauve breed will definitely like this boy. He is not a purebred fauve, but he has all the breed’s usual traits, apart from (we hope) the one that causes these dogs to follow their noses wherever they lead. Propser was found as a stray, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in June 2013, though, and as he arrived in good condition, he just must have had a home before. However no one is looking for him. Prosper is sharing her kennel with another male, and they get on fine. He is a very easygoing lad who would love another chance

Grisou | T285

Grisou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Grisou arrived along with Annick, having been given up for rehoming by their owner who had too many dogs. The owner was not able to adequately socialise his pack, and we saw this from Grisou’s behaviour when he first arrived. He was extremely timid and very difficult to approach. He showed no sign of aggression, he was just unused to being touched. The refuge staff and volunteers are working hard with him, however, and he is making good progress. And being such a pretty young dog, we hope that he will soon be adopted, and of course once out of the refuge, he will make far quicker progress. Grisou is a speckled black and white crossbreed who is medium sized. He was born in June 2016.

Annick | T284

Annick female spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Annick was brought to the SCPA by our cruelty insepctors, although we have to point out that neither she, nor her companion Grisou were mistreated per se. Rather they were two dogs of five and the owner was unable to look after all of them as they should be looked after. So the dogs were rarely walked and were not getting adequate vet care. Annick is a very pretty young spaniel cross who was born in June 2013. She has beautiful dark red and brown colouring and a very gentle nature. She is fine with other dogs and good on the lead. A lovely medium sized female dog who needs a new home! Please get in touch if you like the look of beautiful Annick.

Oreo | T326

Oreo young male dalmationMale, Young, Large

Oreo is that rarest of things at a refuge; a dalmatian! A young dalmatian, too. He is just a year old and is a stunning lad. Although he is officially in the pound, we know that he is not going to be reclaimed, so if you are after a dog of this breed, then get in touch quickly. Oreo is very timid and in need of socialisation, but he is not at all snappy, and to be honest just looks bewildered. I am not surprised, to be honest. We will soon have him feeling better, but of course what he really needs is a new home. Why not come and meet this lovely lad. He will be vaccinated, castrated and identified and all for €170.

Pica | T277

PicaFemale, Young, Large

When Pica arrived at the ScPA she was absolutely terrified. She hid in her box and occasionally put her nose out to see what was happening and to bark at anyone who approached. Yes, all the classic signs of a dog who has been beaten. Once out of her kennel, however, she changed and now that she is sharing her kennel, she is making great progress. We think she is some kind of levrier cross, she has the right build, although there is definitely something else in the mix. Pica was born in June 2016, and although her life up to now has probably been very tough, she is now firmly on the road to a far brighter future.

Baxter | T278

Baxter large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Baxter was brought to the SCPA by a father and his daughter who claimed to have found him and kept him for a week before realising that a big dog like this was not suited to apartment living. Yeah, right. So when they said “found” they meant found on the internet, I guess. Still, there is no other option than to find this big boy a new home. Yes, Baxter is a big dog. Well, only 40kg or so, but as he is full of enthusiasm, it makes him quite a handful. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, sharing his kennel quite happily, and we know from his former “not-family” that he is fine with children, but he will need strong handling. Baxter is a stocky short haired cross who was born in January 2017.

Jaja | T320

JajaFemale, Young, Medium

Jaja is a young fox terrier cross who was brought to the SCPA by her owner who was not able to look after her dog due to health reasons. Jaja is quite a timid and delicate looking dog, so at first she found life at the refuge a bit overwhelming. However once she started sharing her kennel she started settling in well. We suspect that she has some podenco or other similar breed in her, as she has very large erect ears, which makes her look simply adorable. Jaja would love to find a new home soon. As a small-ish female she should have no trouble, especially as despite her breed, hunting is very far from her mind. Cuddles are more her thing!

Pochontas | T319

Pocahontas female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

One of several lovely young females who arrived at around the same time in June 2017, Pocahontas is a delight. She is pale brown and white in colour, really stunning. She was born in June 2017, and so is naturally lively and full of fun. We have no idea of her history, but she shows no sign at all of having been mistreated; she loves everyone and seems to be fine with other dogs. Pocahontas is of medium size and would fit into just about any home where she can have love, exercise and cuddles.
