Dogs

Sam | R336

Sam male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Found with his friend Lilo in a local village and brought to the SPA, we know Sam’s name as he supposedly had a piece of paper with his name on it stuck to his fur. How strange! In any case, this dog is very handsome and very very handsome. He is a shepherd cross, but his colouring is just stunning. All deep russets and browns, Sam has a chunky head and a furrowed brow; perhaps he is puzzled as to what he is doing at the SPA! Let’s get him a home, people!

Darby | R329

Darby male Blue de JuraMale, Young, Medium

Darby has a long road ahead of him, and although the SPA is not the best place for him, it is clearly far far better than wherever he was before. Presumably this Blue de Jura has escaped (or been dumped) by a hunter; he is terrified of his own shadow, and as he is only a year old, we can probably not even imagine the life he had before arriving. For now this lad is being left mostly in peace, fed regularly and reassured by the presence of other dogs and the soothing tones of the staff and volunteers. We will be looking for a very special home for this lad, but as he is so beautiful, we are hoping that someone lovely might wish to take him on sooner rather than later.

Diesel R304

DieselMale, Young, Large

Diesel should not really be at the SPA. He had an owner, but when Diesel was found straying in his village, they refused to collect him. We hate it when this happens, but perhaps the only way forward is to agree that perhaps the owner does not love his dog as much as he should. And Diesel is so worthy of love! He is a fabulous looking dark and pale shepherd/border collie cross who is very gentle and affectionate. His date of birth is estimated as being in November 2016, so although this boy is more or less fully grown, he is still a very young dog who will adapt quickly to his new home. He is good with other dogs, both male and female and his adoption fee is €170.

Taoni | R303

Tanoi female border collie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Taoni is a border collie who was found and brought to the refuge, so sadly we don’t know anything about her history. However from her behaviour so far, we guess that she has had quite a sheltered life, as although hugely affectionate, she remains fairly timid at first. Taoni was born in June 2012, and is a little bit overweight, so wherever she was before the SPA, she was well fed. She is fine with other dogs, does not pull on the lead, and in fact when two walkers accidentally let go of her lead, her only thought was to return to the refuge, where she sat down outside her kennel waiting for them to let her back in. Taoni will make a great family pet, she is absolutely adorable!

Billy | R288

 

Billy male tri-coloured retrieverMale, Young, Medium

Poor Billy. He is yet another dog who is at the SPA following the death of his owner. This time, however, Billy was left in his deceased owner’s garden for 6 months, while neighbours took it in turns to feed him. Finally they got fed up with this and one of them dumped him at the SPA gates one night. Nice, eh? They then phoned up to tell us that Billy is good with other dogs but not with cats. This has since been tested at the SPA, and lo and behold, Billy is fine with cats too! He went straight to the vet, who estimated his date of birth as being June 2012, then into a kennel to share happily with another dog. Billy is a fabulous tricoloured setter cross who is very well behaved. On a recent walk with volunteers his lead broke, but Billy stayed with his walkers and returned to the SPA. What a good boy!

Pador|R248

Male, Young, Small

Pador is a jagd terrier cross who was born in June 2016 and was brought to the SPA as a stray. Dogs of this breed are well known in France for their feisty characters, they are a bit like Jack Russells, in that they make both great pets as well as superb hunters of small game. It is on the former that we will concentrate, as we are not really fond of hunting as a rule! Pador is of small stature, some 12 kg, and he has wonderful rough fur.

Isidor|R227

isidor male young MalinoisMale, Young, Large

Isidor was abandoned by his owner who has changed jobs and no longer has time to devote to his dog. And Isidor is going to take quite a bit of time, to be honest. Not a dog for the faint hearted, Isidor pulls a lot on the lead and is a bundle of energy, as is often the case of the malinois breed. We are told that Isidor is fine with dogs and cats and children, but at the SPA he is alone for now, as he has just too much “bounce” for most of our dogs. Isidor was born in May2013 is looking for a home with experienced owners and an enclosed garden where this lad can get rid of some of his energy!

Hershey|R225

Hershey male braqueMale, Young, Large

Wow, what a fabulous dog. Hershey is a chocolate brown braque who was born in May 2013. He is simply magnificent, tall, elegant, positively regal, and a dog to make any owner proud. A dog of this size can look imposing, but Hershey is very friendly and affectionate. A bit slobbery, but that is due to his breed’s soft mouth. At the time of writing we have not tested Hershey with other dogs, but so far he appears to be extremely friendly and affectionate. His adoption fee is €170, which includes castration, microchip and vaccinations.

Jango|R223

Jango male springer spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

One of our recent adopters was walking his new dog when he came across young Jango, who was clearly lost. So he brought him to the SPA, and at the same time gave us news of how well his own dog was doing! Jango is identified, but the owners details are not up to date, and we cannot track them down. Jango was born in January 2014 and is a springer spaniel cross. He is a great looking lad and we are sure that he will make a great pet for anyone who likes the great outdoors!

Look|R199

Look male german shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Look is a lovely gentle german shepherd cross who was found at the SPA gates one morning. He was identified so we called his owner, who said that she no longer wanted him, and she subsequently came along to sign him over to us. Look has spent a lot of time tied up in a garden, so he has not seen much of the world. Despite this he is very affectionate, and is gradually getting to know other dogs. He settles down really well on walks and is very attentive to whomever is walking him. Look was born in April 2013.
