Triffon | T514

Triffon young male griffonMale, Young, Medium

How fabulous is this lad! Griffon lovers will go crazy over this recent arrival. Triffon “Terrific Griffon” was born in January 2014, according to the vet’s estimate, and although he takes a bit of coaxing to come out to play, once he does he is not your typical scared-y boy. He seems really laid back and just accepting of whatever is going on. And he is more than happy to be patted. We are expecting lots of interest in this boy, and although we don’t yet know how he is with other dogs, it might be worth getting in touch soon if you think you may wish to offer him a home.

Olaf | T532

Olaf young male setterMale, Young, Medium

Olaf is one of two dogs who were brought in having supposedly been found, but who are clearly unsold pups. While they were with their owner they were doubtless poorly treated or even beaten, as both are terrified of humans, though Olaf slightly less so than his brother Oleg. We are looking for calm patient homes for each of these dogs, preferably with lots of human presence and if possible another dog, although this assessment will probably change as time goes on and the dogs come out of their shells a bit.

OLeg | T531

Oleg male setterMale, Young, Medium

Setters Oleg and Olaf were brought in together by someone who claimed to have found them, but we know better. He is one of many serial abandoners in the area, and these two fabulous dogs are doubtless unsold puppies from a litter. Having seen the state they are in, I am very pleased that they are now in the safety of the ScPA. These two dogs show all the signs of having been beaten; they are terrified of people, and Oleg, in particular, shivers uncontrollably whenever he is in contact with humans. However there is no sign at all of any aggression, and it is lovely to see the hope in his eyes when you stroke his soft muzzle. We will soon have these dogs feeling far more positive about the world, and they will be wonderful companions.

Grace | T528

Female, Young, Medium

Grace female setter crossGrace is a beautiful harlequin setter who has just arrived. We are not sure of her history, but we suspect that she is going to have to have a leg amputated, and this is perhaps why she is at the ScPA. At present Grace has a “dead” paw, which just hangs limp and drags on the ground. The vet says she will be far happier with no leg at all, and as it is at the front, it should make very little difference to her mobility believe it or not. And looking at her happy, smiling face, we cannot believe that Grace will be anything other than a happy dog. She is very lively and affectionate and we are hopeful that her handicap will not affect her chances of being adopted.

Karadoc | T445

KaradocMale, Young, Medium

I am amazed that Karadoc had been at the refuge for over a month before I met him properly. Maybe because so many dogs have arrived recently. In any case, I am delighted that I now know him at least a little bit. What a gem. Karadoc is quite an unassuming dog. He is mid brown, of medium size, neither young nor old (DOB Aug 2014)…easy to overlook, perhaps. But he is such a great dog. He doesn’t pull on the lead at all, he is fine with other dog and cats, and he is just a steady, easygoing dog. He will be a wonderful family pet; a great walking companion and just a superb all rounder. My new favourite boy and one not to miss!

Lancelot | T472

Lancelot male blue merle terrierMale, Young, Small

Lancelot is a blue merle coloured terrier who was brought to the refuge in early September. He is a great looking lad, small and very fluffy, looking a bit like a very mini griffon. We don’t know much about him as yet, but he is a dog that will appeal to lots of people, so we thought we would give you a sneak peek! Let us know if you would like more information about this lad when it becomes available; he is sure to be popular!

Morgana | T468

Morgana female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large

As soon as this lovely pale shepherd cross arrived at the SCPA pound we were contacted by the person who had found her. Thanks to some detective work, they had tracked down the dog’s owners, had spoken to them on the phone, and wanted to reassure us that this dog would be collected the next day. The owner never came, much to the disgust and disappointment of this good samaritan. Yes, the fact remains that many of the dogs at the ScPA are there despite the fact that their owners could come and collect them. They just choose not to. Morgana, a magnificent and gentle dog with calm, dreamy eyes, deserves better. At the moment she is still in the Pound (as we have no formal certificate to abandon her we have no choice but to treat her as a lost dog), we will get her mixing with other dogs and out on walks, and sterilised. Yes, coming to the ScPA is the best thing that could happen to this lovely lass.

Aelis | T473

Aelis female Malinois crossFemale, Young, Medium

Aelis is a really adorable and affectionate 3 year old malinois cross who has arrived unidentified. Moreover she has strange markings on her muzzle, which are either due to having been attacked or due to being muzzled, we think. The vet can find no medical explanation and all tests for disease were negative. Luckily these minor injuries appear to be healing and the fur is regrowing nicely, so there will be more flattering pictures to come. However we are sharing Aelis because she is so gentle and loving, and sometimes those factors are more important than a dog’s looks! Come and meet this lovely girl.

Robin | T460

Robin male puppyMale, Young, Medium

Robin is a little puppy who has had a terrible start to life. He was brought to the refuge from a different town, well outside the SCPA’s usual catchment area, but at least this way his former owner is unlikely to see him and try to reclaim him. Born in June 2018, by the time of his arrival less than three months later, Robin already had multiple bone fractures, some of which had already consolidated and so had been inflicted at different times. It is horrendous to think of any dog, let alone a puppy, suffering such abuse. Robin, of course, bears no malice at all. He is bouncy and full of fun, and looking forward to a new home. He might have mobility issues such as arthritis when he is older, but let’s hope that doesn’t prevent him from finding a loving family. He certainly deserves it. Robin is a beauceron cross, and will be a big dog when adult.

Percival | T459

Percival Brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

This five year old Breton spaniel was found at the refuge gates one morning and like so many of our new arrivals, he was unidentified. No one has come to collect him, so he is now up for adoption. Lovers of this breed know that these dogs make great family pets, as well as bieng lively and inquisitive on walks. They love the outdoors and are often used for flushing during hunts. Percival is a very handsome boy who seems used to human contact. He was born in September 2013 and so is in the prime of life.
