Dogs

Jaffa | A012

jaffa shepherd cross maleMale, Young, Medium

Jaffa is an amazing dog who has just had bad luck. He was adopted from the SPA when he was a puppy, and brought back when his owners bought a pedigree dog. Incredible, isn’t it? But yes, some people are that shallow. While back at the refuge Jaffa showed just how perfect he was, and he was soon adopted. Unfortunately his new owner brought him back as she says he pulls too much on the lead. What a shame she did not realise this before offering him a home. Jaffa is fine with other dogs, he just wants to say hello to everyone he meets. He is a shepherd cross who was born in September 2014. He is fine with other dogs, is fine with children and can be left alone with no difficulties. So a perfect dog.  I think we have another hidden gem here, guys!

Meline | T667

Melie female young shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

It looks like Meline arrived at the refuge immediately after having had puppies, and she was in an extremely emaciated condition. Whoever dumped her at the SPA gates needs a good talking to, as they clearly have no idea about animal welfare. Or more likely they just don’t care. Meline is fabulous though, and although she is a bit baggy of breast at the moment, she is young and they will soon bounce back!

Gaspard | T647

Gaspard male German shepherdMale, Mature, Medium

Gaspard was brought to the refuge by the cruelty inspectors, who found this dog chained up and starving. Who would do that to a fabulous German shepherd? Gaspard is still in recovery inside the infirmary, although he goes outside for short walks most days. He is still very thin, so wolfs his food down a bit, and this is one reason why he is not mixable for the moment. We hope that he soon realises that food will be plentiful from now on, and that other dogs are not competition. Gaspard was born in February 2011 and would love a new home where he will be loved properly

Banksie | T677

Banksie maleborder collie crossMale, Young, Medium

Six year old Banksie arrived at the refuge on Boxing day morning and we hope that doesn’t mean what we think it might mean. Perhaps he genuinely is lost, although we realise that the chances of him being reclaimed are slim. He is a lovely chap, we are pretty sure he is a border collie cross, and although clearly frustrated at being locked up, he is friendly and smiley. As soon as he comes out of the pound we will have him mixed with other dogs, as he seems to be extremely sociable, and will let you know what he is like on the lead. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this lovely boy, feel free to ask.

Oups | T652

Oups young male malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Oups is a very chunky young lad. He was brought to the refuge by a woman who had been trying to do good, but as is so often the case, had become overwhelmed by the number of dogs she wanted to save, none of whom was adoptable due to the fact that they lived as a pack, with no walks or socialisation. Luckily Oups is young enough to have his life turned around, which is what the ScPA is now attempting to do. At present Oups pulls on the lead and we are not able to get him to share his kennel, but both of these are just a matter of time. And when you see how handsome Oups is, you realise why we are posting him! A boxer malinois cross, Oups is a stunning mix. He was born in July 2017 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Strike | T622

Strike male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Strike was adopted from us when he was a puppy and we have no idea why he is at the refuge again, as we cannot get in touch with his owners. And by the looks of things they are not looking for their dog either. Strike needs a new home. Were it not for the fact that he looks like many of the other ScPA dog (that shepherd mix that is so common)he would be adopted very quickly. Because Strike is an extremely well behaved dog. He sits quietly in his cage when a walk is on the cards, and he gets on perfectly with everyone he meets. Let’s hope he hasn’t got too long to wait for a new home. He has just turned 7, so if you are looking for a calmer, steady older dog, he could be your boy!

Zebuline | T583

ZebulineFemale, Young, Medium

Zebuline’s owner is well known to the SCPA, as we have played host to many of his dogs over the years. Usually he reclaims them, and usually (like always!) we wish he wouldn’t. Zebuline has a chance for a new life, as he has not come to collect her. It would be great for this stunning cross breed to find a new home. Zebuline was born in December 2017, doubtless the puppy of one of her owners other dogs. She is really beautiful with staffy-like brindle colouring, but there is nothing staffy about her at all. She is sociable and affectionate. Had she not arrived at the ScPA she would doubtless have spent her life having litter after litter of pups who would have been condemned to the same life. So this is a super save all round.

Pia | T503

Pia female staffie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Pia is a lovely little girl who has had a difficult time so far and is looking for a new home. Unlike the family’s other dog, who had a normal life, with regular walks etc, Pia was kept inside to look fierce and guard the property. Probably because she is small and stocky and looks like a dangerous dog! It is true that Pia has problems with some men, particularly when she first meets them. She is fine with all the male SCPA employees, however, proving that it is just a question of confidence. On the positive side, Pia is fine with other dogs, and she passed the cat test with flying colours. This is a chance to get a staffie type dog with none of the administrative hassle that comes with these breeds here in France. Pia was born in August 2015.

Noisette | T501

Noisette female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Noisette was found at the refuge gates one morning with her puppy, Pirouette. Both dogs had mange and were put in isolation until this infection had been treated. Luckily they had each other, so it was not too bad an experience for them. Now, they are all well and ready for a new home. Noisette is a shepherd cross who seems to be a very calm girl. Recently she escaped from her kennel and her first instinct was to run to the nearest person, who just slipped a lead over her head and gave her a cuddle. Yes, you are right, probably a homeless person’s dog; sociable and well balanced. Her puppy-bearing days are over now, and although she is not quite five years old, Noisette would like a more stable lifestyle than she has had up to now!

Ilona | T529

Ilona bull dog crossFemale, Young, Medium

Ilona is a fabulous white coloured bull terrier who needs a new home fairly urgently. We do not know all the details, but we believe that she has been used for breeding. Coming to the ScPA is really a blessing for her, especially as her owners have made no attempt to find her. What she needs now is a new home. Ilona is wonderful with people, but is a bit reactive to dogs, and she hates cats. So a home as a single dog would be ideal for this lovely girl who was born in May 2013.
