Frimousse | T004

Frimousse small female cross breedFemale, Young, Small

This is a sad story. Who remembers the dogs from Ste Eulalie, who were rescued from dog hoarders in March 2016? Four of them are still at the SPA looking for homes, but many more are happy in their forever homes. And we thought this was the case for Frimousse. However her owner has just passed away, and with none of the relatives prepared to take on the dog, Frimousse finds herself at the SPA. She was born in June 2014, and spent nine months in hell before coming to the SPA. She stayed with us only briefly (she was far less traumatised than some of her poor companions) but is now back. We hope that her size and young age mean that she will not have a long wait this time either, and that she will soon be back in a home. And that this time it is for ever!

Polly | R607

Polly old female cross breedFemale, Mature, Medium

Polly was found in a nearby village and almost inevitably she is not identified. The vet estimates her date of birth as January 2009, making her nine years old. This puts her already into the senior dogs category, and we hope she will not have too long to wait before finding a new home. She is a shepherd cross with beautiful black and tan markings and gentle eyes. She is calm and affectionate would suit someone looking for a gentle older dog for love and companionship. Like all out senior dogs, Polly’s adoption fee is just €80, for which she will be vaccinated, identified and sterilised.

Griff | R481

Griff young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Grif is the third of the three dogs who was brought to the SPA at the age of two having spent their lives hitherto in a garage as their owner did not want them when they were born. Grif is making slower progress than his siblings, but he too is just about ready for a new home, where, of course, progress will be even quicker. Griff is a bit more griffon-like than his siblings, mainly white and with a lovely wiry beard. He was born in October 2015 and would like a home with another dog and kind, patient owners, please.

Panda | R482

Panda labrador collie crossMale, Young, Medium

Panda is one of three dogs who were abandoned at the SPA together in mid October by a man who had allowed his dog to have an unwanted litter. Instead of letting the puppies find homes, however, he had kept them in his garage until the age of two years. So when these dogs arrived at the refuge they were not at all well socialised. Thankfully the staff and volunteers have been working hard with them, and Panda is ready for his new home. He is a lovely boy, probably a lab collie cross. He is very calm and gentle, and after an initial panic when the lead is put on, he is fabulous on walks. He is still learning the ropes, though, so a patient home or one with another dog is preferred.

Titou | R602

Titou young malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Have you ever wanted a malinois, but found them too tall and a bit too lively? Here is your answer….a dog who looks like a malinois but is the height of a corgi, and with a pretty chilled character. Titou was brought in to the SPA in December by his owner who lives in an appartment and no longer had time to walk Titou. What a shame, as he is a pleasure to walk. He is exceptionally well mannered, he doesn’t pull at all! Titou was born in November 2015, so is a very young dog, although one who is mature enough to have got over any puppy craziness. A great all-rounder!

Benji |

Benji young male bearded collieMale, Young, Large

Benji is such a great looking dog! He is a young bearded collie who was found and brought to the SPA in mid December and the vet estimates him as being just a year old (born January 2017). Intially very nervous, he cheered up as soon as he was taken from the pound to the refuge (where there are more walks and more contact with other dogs). Benji was thin and in quite bad condition when he arrived, but already he is putting on weight and looking much happier. We see great things ahead for this lad! Benji is castrated, microchipped and vaccinated and his adoption fee is €170.

Finn | R593

Finn male Bruno de JuraMale, Young, Large

We are happy to have Finn at the SPA. Why? Because we know for a fact that he has been straying in a nearby village for several months. All attempts to capture him failed until eventually an employee of the mayor’s office managed to gain his confidence and bring him to the refuge. He arrived in mid- December, and already by the end of the month he was much less scared, allowing people to walk and pat him. We know from his days as a stray that as long as food is available, he stays in one place. We also know that he is good with other dogs, as he is sharing his kennel quite happily. And he is gaining lots of confidence from his gregarious kennel mate! Finn was born in January 2016 and is a bruno de Jura. Let’s hope he does not suffer the same fate as Jura, who has now been looking for a new home for over two years….

Winnie | R592

Winnie large male cross breedMale, Young, Large

Winnie would be a great dog for anyone looking for a big young fluffy dog. We think he is a cross between a pyrenean mountain dog and a golden retriever, as he weighs 30 something kilos, with more to gain. He was born in February 2017, so even though he has finished growing upwards, some more outward expansion is almost guaranteed! Is this why he was abandoned? A car pulled up at the SPA just as the staff were arriving in mid December, and a man was seen shoving Winnie into one of the external kennels. When he was told to go to the reception, he did a tyre-squealing escape, leaving Winnie behind. Initially terrified, as soon as Winnie was able to leave the pound (which would have been immediately, had his owner filled in forms to abandon his dog), Winnie was just fine. He shared his kennel happily, and is great on the lead. He is a magnificent dog, quite calm and just waiting for a new home.

Duke | R581

Duke male brindle shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Duke is a young handsome shepherd who, like so many of our dogs, arrived with no identification and having been found lost in a nearby village. Despite his picture being published on Facebook and other sites, no one has come looking for him, and we suspect that he was adopted as a puppy free from an internet advert, and now that he has lost his puppy cuteness, he is no longer wanted. He is a great lad, though, and well worth getting to know! Duke is a dark brindle coloured shepherd cross who was born in December 2016, so is very young and keen to learn and be loved. He is fine with other dogs and has all the makings of a great family pet!
