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. A couple of months of love and she was a changed dog. Pica is a delight. Full of fun and affection, she now seeks out human contact and loves her walks and cuddles. 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.

Mimi | T318

Mimi female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Mimi is most definitely a DRC hot pick. She is an adorable black shepherd cross who was born in June 2017, so was just a year old when she arrived at the refuge. She has wonderful body language, is really wiggly and affectionate. She seems to have either very good manners or some training, as she sits well and relatively calmly for such a young, active dog. She has a very engaging face and will stay medium sized and is fine with other dogs. We can find out how she behaves with cats, of course. Mimi is vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip and her adoption fee is €170

Andy | T323

AndyMale, Young, Large

Andy is at the ScPA due to his owner’s being in hospital. It is always sad when dogs arrive like this; they are still very much loved, but health issues have forced a separation. Andy is still a very young dog, so with any luck he can find a new home soon and have a fresh start with someone who loves him just as much. He is a magnificent lad, a big shepherd cross, probably with some husky. He really is stunning. Andy is fine with other dogs, and although he would probably act as a good burglar deterrent, that is due to his imposing size, rather than his gentle nature. Andy was born in April 2015 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Urgent Appeal: Bang

Our latest appeal is for Bang. He is a small to medium crossbreed who was brought to the ScPA having been found in a warehouse with occasional visits from the owners. Yes, many dogs have worse lives than this, but as far as we are concerned, they all deserve better!

Bang was born in January 2016 although he perhaps looks a bit older due to not having had the easiest of lives up to now. He is fine with most other dogs, but his relationship with cats is a bit more complicated. He seems to tolerate them indoors, but outside is a different matter, so a cat free home would probably be best. Unless your cats are quick movers, at least.

He is getting lots of love at the refuge, most notably from Ingrid, who sadly cannot adopt him due to issues with one of her other dogs (although Bang is not to blame at all). He is walked often and loves his trips to the lake, where he sploshes around happily. He is fine in the car and is good at adapting to new situations. He is quick to learn and would thrive at dog school.

Bang is full of joy and fun, and although we are sure that the refuge is the nicest place he has lived, we are certain that the best is yet to come!

His adoption fee is €170, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and identified by microchip.

Please help us find a home for Bang.

 

 

Google | T257

Google male setter crossMale, Young, Medium

Google is a wonderful setter/border collie cross who was brought to the ScPA for rehoming by his family due to illness. Theirs, not the dog’s, I should add. Google was born in September 2014 and is a stunning lad. He is a bit reactie to male dogs, but fine with female dogs and cats. He is fine on the lead and is a very attentive dog, keen to learn and keen to please. As with all dogs adopted from the ScPA, Google is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.
