Dogs

Cally | T173

CallyFemale, Young, Large 

Cally was adopted from the SPA in January and we thought all was going fine. Apparently not, and once again it is not the fault of the dog. Yes, people’s circumstances change, but if you know that a big change is imminent, it is preferable to wait before adopting a new dog. In this case, the new owner moved in with someone and Cally did not get on with their (female) dog. So Cally is back at the SPA. She is a very attractive girl, young (born in January 2014) and is fine with male dogs. She is quite a chunky lass, as we say, and is suitably boisterous in her play. Attention must be paid with very young children, but apart from that, Cally is perfect. She is not too bad on a lead and would appeal to people who like the staffie types but don’t want to go through all the administrative steps to own a (a-hem) dangerous dog.

Boris | T111

BorisMale, Young, Medium 

I know we shouldn’t have favourites, but Boris is the dog I would take home from the SPA if I had any more room. He is another of the five dogs who were found in a warehouse, and in my opinion he is the best looking and friendliest. He is a crossbreed with unusual markings; plenty of tricloured patches and speckles all over his fur. He is a truly lovely boy, learning to walk on the lead (so a bit enthusiastic), but as Boris is only a year old (DOB March 2017) there is plenty of time for him to learn. He is fine with other dogs, both male and female, and adores human company. He would make a wonderful family pet, either as a sole dog or as a second dog.

Mitch | T109

MitchMale, Young, Medium 

Another of the five dogs found in an old warehouse, Mitch is a fabulous looking shepherd cross. He was born in February 2017, and is extremely well socialised. Mitch is sharing his kennel with another male, but of course we know that all these dogs are used to cohabiting. Mitch is learning to walk on a lead and adores affection. He will make a wonderfully loyal family dog.

Bang | T108

BangMale, Young, Medium 

Bang, who was born in January 2016, was one of five dogs who were found locked up in a warehouse. Apparently their owners did come along to feed them, but the place was in an unimaginable state as it was never cleaned and the dogs had no access to the outside. That is no way for dogs to spend their lives. Bang is the most timid of the pack, but he is gradually gaining confidence at the SPA. He is good with other dogs and although he is only just getting used to the lead, he is already making huge progress. He is a bit difficult with some other dogs, but that will improve with time, we are sure.

Jack | T153

Jack Black Labrador crossMale, Young, Medium 

Jack is another dog who has just been brought back to the SPA. He was adopted towards the end of last year by a woman who came to adopt a dog for her elderly mother. We cautioned against such an action, but she insisted, and like fools we allowed Jack to leave. This will no longer happen! Of course the elderly mum found Jack (a senior dog, but one with plenty of energy) too much to handle, and the daughter did not want a second dog. So Jack is back. He is like a mini black labrador crossed with a jagd terrier, he is good on the lead and really affectionate. Jack was born in July 2008, so he is a senior dog, and as such his adoption fee is is just €80 (vaccinated, castrated and microchipped)

Chupito | T143

ChupitoMale, Young, Small 

Chupito was adopted from the SPA when he was a puppy, back in September last year. He is now coming up to a year old (he was born in May 2017) and finds himself back at the SPA. We don’t know why, as instead of coming to explain and fill in the rehoming questionnaire, Chupito’s owners just took him to the local vet and left him. How nice! Since he has been back with us we have seen that this dog is good with other dogs, he is lively and affectionate and small. In fact when you see him in real life you will be surprised; he is like a mini version of one of the “standard” SPA shepherd crosses. A cute little lad who deserves a better home than the last one he had.

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.

Whisky | T101

WhiskyMale, Young, Large

Whisky is a fairly large dog who has been found straying and unidentified. The family who brought him in had kept him for a few days and had done their best to find his owners, but without any luck. Inevitably that makes it unlikely that he will be reclaimed, so Whisky is looking for a new home. He is a lovely calm looking lad who appears to be well looked after. As soon as the pound time is up we will be able to walk this lad and tell you more about him, so for now he is one to watch. Whisky was born in February 2014.

Lana | T099

Lana young female labrador crossFemale, Young, Medium

Lana has been at the SPA before, she was found as a stray last year and brought in, although she was recognised on Facebook but never collected. Her first home did not work out, as the owner lived in an apartment and worked long hours; in fact it is hard to see why he thought having a dog was a good idea. So it is not really Lana’s fault that she is back; she is just a typical young dog; eager to please, eager to learn and with some basic education. Lana looks like a small and slightly built labrador, she was born in December 2016 and is great on the lead, as well as being fine with other dogs and children.

Bogdan | T062

Bogdan male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Bogdan and his brother Danov were brought in by a woman who claimed to have just found them on her way to Carcassonne. However it was a very wet week, the dogs were bone dry, and having met the dogs, everyone knows that catching them would have been no easy task. Oh, Madam, so that will be you not wanting your two dogs, then? Bogdan is a Breton spaniel who was born in March 2017. He has no lead training and is nervous of people, but he is in the right place to learn all about the world.
