Dogs

Muffin | R574

Muffin young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It breaks my heart to see Muffin back at the SPA. He was adopted when he was a tiny puppy and afterwards we received dozens of photos of him growing up and enjoying life. Who would have thought that about a year later he would be back at the SPA, over a year old and over a year more difficult to rehome. That is the effect that a divorce can have on a dog. Muffin is a stunning dog, luckily for him. He is fine with other dogs and we hope he will find a new home soon. He is a shepherd cross with slightly drooping jowls, making him look very distinguished. He deserves a lovely home, a bit like the one he thought he already had.

Orwell | R570

Orwell young male braque crossMale, Young, Medium

Orwell and Blair were found at the SPA gates one morning just after the last of the puppies was adopted. Did someone worry that we were short of young dogs at the SPA? Thanks but no. In any case, these two brothers are still very young (born in June 2016) and are still very puppy-like in their behaviour. Orwell is a braque cross (perhaps with a labrador) who has typical speckly black and white markings. He is playful but hasn’t got used to the lead yet, so a bit of work to do on this lad. The effort will be worth it, though, he is a lovely looking boy.

Babar | R546

Babar male beagle crossMale, Young, Medium

Babar arrived in a skeletal state and so spent a couple of weeks in the warmth of the infirmary whilst we fattened him up a bit. He looked very sad and pathetic. Until his first walk, that is, when he ran round and played with another dog so happily that we decided to leave him outside in a kennel, where he had company and could play to his heart’s content. As well as cuddle up to keep warm. In fact Babar is sharing with two other dogs, and they are all getting on wonderfully. Babar is a beagle cross who is a tiny bit timid at first, but soon gains confidence. He was born in January 2012 and is all ready for his new home!

Mila | R544

Mira female border collieFemale, Young, Medium

Mila is a fabulous border collie who has just been abandoned at the SPA. We often get border crosses, but I am sure you will all agree that this girl is a stunner! Mila is three years old and is quite nervous especially of men. However the love she is receiving at the SPA is helping her with her fears. Mila can meet other dogs on walks, but in a home tends to be very jealous, so will be best of as an only dog. Mila is not at all good with cats, so a patient, loving, feline-free home is needed for this beautiful girl, please.

Helda | R545

Helda female German ShepherdFemale, Young, Large

Helda is a purebreed Germand shepherd who was bought at a local pet store five years ago. Having a purebreed puppy was important enough at the time for this family to spend considerable money on a dog, but Helda has ended up neglected at the bottom of a garden. Unsurprisingly she barks for attention, and it is for this reason that she has been abandoned at the SPA. Helda is five years old (born 31.07.12) but already has a cataract in one eye. Poor girl. She is fine with certain male dogs but not cats, and at the moment she is scared and timid. She is a fabulous girl though, and has had a miserable life up to now.

Citrouille | R516

Citrouille young female spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Citrouille (aka Pumpkin) is perhaps a hunt dog who has managed to escape from her owner. A beautiful pale spaniel, Citrouille is very timid on first meeting, but once she is out of her kennel, she comes to life. Citrouille was born in November 2014, so is still a young dog. She arrived with raw patches of fur on her back, which was due to an untreated flea infection. Yet again we are happy that an animal who was destined to have a life of misery has made it to the safety of the SPA. Now what we need for her is a new home!

Ernie| R316

Ernie male rottweiler crossMale, Medium, Young

Rottweiler cross Ernie was adopted but brought back in July. He really is not a dog for first-time owners, and that is what his last family was. Despite our advice (we advised them against the adoption, too) and their best intentions, this young couple were just not ready for a dog like Ernie. Born in January 2015, Ernie is still in need of education. Not the usual commands, he has mastered all of them. His difficulty is with authority. He needs a firm hand or he risks running rings round his owner. Not that he bites, he is just a bit unruly. If you like a chunky dog and are an experienced owner, Ernie could be the one for you.

  • Friendly and affectionate if a bit unruly
  • Needs an experienced owner
  • Will make a lovely family pet

Indian| PP562

Indian female Czech Wolf DogFemale, Large, Mature

Indian is the second of the Czech wolfdogs at the SPA. She came from a man who rescues this breed but who had become overwhelmed with numbers, and the SPA stepped in to help. Indian is the mate of Artos, and would prefer to be homed with him and without other dogs if possible. She is about the size of a German shepherd, and timid with people who she does not know. Once she knows someone she will happily lick and nuzzle them, and shows lots of affection. She is not good with dogs other than Artos and cannot be homed with children. Indian was born in September 2013.

  • Timid with people not good with children
  • Mate of Artos or homed alone
  • Magnificent looking dog

Artos| PP563

Artos male Czech wolf dogMale, Large, Mature

It was only after the recent DRC photo shoot that I realised that Artos was not on our website, although he has been at the SPA since December last year! Taken in by the SPA by a rescuer who had bitten off more than he could chew, Artos is a czech wolfdog. If you don’t know this breed, it is worth doing some research, as they are quite particular! Artos is a big male, fabulous to look at and fabulous on the lead. He is good with some females, but does not like males, even of his own breed (yes, he is the Alpha dog). He is very affectionate with people, but we would not advise that he be homed with small children (although he can meet them on walks without any problems). Artos is magnificent and everyone feels a surge of pride whilst walking him. He as born in December 2010.

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with some female dogs
  • Magnificent looking dog

Comet| R442

Comet female Anglo crossFemale, Medium, Mature

Oh, Comet! What a fabulous looking girl you are! This Anglo cross is a beautiful looking girl who is 7 years old. Is she a hunt dog who has become lost? We will perhaps never know, as like so many of our dogs, she arrived unidentified. Comet shows none of the timidity of a dog who has spent its life in a kennel, however. Comet lies calmly in her kennel watching the world go by. She is very affectionate and as she is so stunning that we hope she will leave soon. Whoever adopts her should have an enclosed garden and be prepared to keep her on the lead if necessary, though. She has a long nose and long ears, and we know what that can mean!

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with other dogs
  • Needs an enclosed garden
