Cappucino | T082

CappucinoMale, Young, Small 

I wish I had discovered Cappucino sooner. He arrived at the SPA in early February but it took a month for me to realise what a fabulous little lad he is. Born in January 2014, this spaniel cross is a ball of love and energy. He is enthusiastic on walks, but happy to stop for a pat or a cuddle and he is fine with other dogs. Cappucino is on the small size, weighing about 15kg, and seems to be a very happy boy, full of joy and fun. Cappucino would make a great family pet, he loves long walks and although he will probably need an enclosed garden, he loves people so will probably stay close. He would love a canine friend, but would be happy as an only dog too, providing he has lots of attention.

Cliona | R380

ClionaFemale, Mature, Medium 

I can’t believe that Cliona is back. That was a sad day at the SPA believe me, and seeing staff crying is not nice. Many of you will remember this dog, who was brought into the SPA last summer after weeks of straying. She was covered in ugly tumours and a fundraising campaign was launched to pay for her operations. She emerged as a sleek and beautiful black lab cross, and we were delighted when she was homed to people who had been walking her regularly during her recuperation. Five months later and she was brought back with the explanation that she had bitten the father. We know that Cliona is nervous of many people (especially men), which is hardly surprising when you bear in mind her history. But it turns out that she was approached in the dark while she was sleeping and that is when she bit. That is no excuse, of course, but it makes her reaction a bit easier to understand. I think her ideal home would be with softly spoken people, preferably female, and away from small children. Cliona is fine with most other dogs and 100% fine with cats.

Tornade | T133

Tornade young female jagged terrierFemale, Young, Small 

Tornade was adopted from the SPA when she was a puppy, then brought back by her owners who were moving house. Her next adoption followed very quickly (after all, Tornade is small and female, a winning combination for adoptions), but it failed too, for completely different reasons. And this time we know far more about Torande. Far from being the cute little girl she appears, this two-year old jagd terrier is a feisty girl. She has boundless energy and is a escape artist par excellence. She is fine with most other dogs, but has a tendency to dominate, and she is not at all good with cats. She does have lots of positive points, though, don’t worry! She is highly intelligent and, given clear boundaries, is a great companion. And once she is tired she loves a cuddle. Tornade is looking for an active, training-minded family with an enclosed garden. She will be a very rewarding friend for the right home.

Murray and Clyde | T123

Murray and ClydeMale, Mature, Medium (Foster Home Sort)

Murray and Clyde are two very elderly dogs who have spent all their lives together and who now find themselves at the refuge due to no fault of their own. Their owner, who is British, is ill and has gone into hospital, but hopes to take his dogs back to the UK in 3 months time, so we are looking for a medium term foster home. The two dogs are not very demanding; they would love a small garden and an occasional walk, and this will be far better for them than waiting at the SPA for their return to the UK.
