Dogs

Jax | T365

JaxMale, Young, Large


Jax was abandoned by his owners as they were out all day and, left to his own devices, Jax barked a lot. This annoyed the neighbours, and as there was no solution possible (ah-hem), Jax, a young brindle coloured beauceron, was brought in for rehoming. It is probably the best thing that could have happened to this dog. He has seen nothing of life, and is terrified of his own shadow. Even the noise of his food bowl terrifies him. Poor, poor dog. As yet we have not been able to find him a companion to share with, but we hope to do so soon, as dogs are much happier when they are not alone. And Jax has so much to learn, and this will be done far quicker once he is able to share his kennel. So for the moment Jax is a work in progress, but he is in the right place, as the staff will look after him well, have no fear. Jax was born in October 2016 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated.

Marco | T349

Marco border crossMale, Young, Medium


Marco is a stunning white and black border collie / shepherd cross who was brought to the SCPA as a stray in early July. He is fine with other dogs, and is gentle and playful. The vet estimates his date of birth as being in July 2017, so he arrived at the refuge when he was one year old, and just at the start of the summer holidays. He was probably left to fend for himself deliberately. I just hope his former family does not get another puppy to replace him when they are back from their holiday. Marco would be a great friend for a family who like walking, as he is young and active. Why not come along and meet him; he is one of those dogs whose photos don’t do justice; he is magnificent!

Freddy | T286

FreddyMale, Young, Small

I am worried that Freddy is going to be one of those dogs who just slips through the net. Like Bridou (our last urgent appeal) and Némo, both of whom are still at the refuge, Freddy arrived at just the wrong time. He was not a puppy, but neither was he an adult. So he was too young to appeal to people looking for a puppy (and we have lots of pups), but people looking for a calmer older dog would not be interested in him, either. Freddy was born in January this year, and sadly it looks like he is doomed to grow up at the refuge. Having said that, Freddy is making the most of it. He is busy playing with his kennelmate and bouncing around as much as he can within the confines of kennel life. If you are after a young, lively dog, then please give Freddy a chance. He is desperate for love and will make a great family friend.

Prosper | T304

Prosper male fauve crossMale, Young, Medium

Oh, what a fabulous boy Prosper is. Lovers of the fauve breed will definitely like this boy. He is not a purebred fauve, but he has all the breed’s usual traits, apart from (we hope) the one that causes these dogs to follow their noses wherever they lead. Propser was found as a stray, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in June 2013, though, and as he arrived in good condition, he just must have had a home before. However no one is looking for him. Prosper is sharing her kennel with another male, and they get on fine. He is a very easygoing lad who would love another chance

Grisou | T285

Grisou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Grisou arrived along with Annick, having been given up for rehoming by their owner who had too many dogs. The owner was not able to adequately socialise his pack, and we saw this from Grisou’s behaviour when he first arrived. He was extremely timid and very difficult to approach. He showed no sign of aggression, he was just unused to being touched. The refuge staff and volunteers are working hard with him, however, and he is making good progress. And being such a pretty young dog, we hope that he will soon be adopted, and of course once out of the refuge, he will make far quicker progress. Grisou is a speckled black and white crossbreed who is medium sized. He was born in June 2016.

Pica | T277

PicaFemale, Young, Large

When Pica arrived at the ScPA she was absolutely terrified. She hid in her box and occasionally put her nose out to see what was happening and to bark at anyone who approached. Yes, all the classic signs of a dog who has been beaten. A couple of months of love and she was a changed dog. Pica is a delight. Full of fun and affection, she now seeks out human contact and loves her walks and cuddles. We think she is some kind of levrier cross, she has the right build, although there is definitely something else in the mix. Pica was born in June 2016, and although her life up to now has probably been very tough, she is now firmly on the road to a far brighter future.

Baxter | T278

Baxter large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Baxter was brought to the SCPA by a father and his daughter who claimed to have found him and kept him for a week before realising that a big dog like this was not suited to apartment living. Yeah, right. So when they said “found” they meant found on the internet, I guess. Still, there is no other option than to find this big boy a new home. Yes, Baxter is a big dog. Well, only 40kg or so, but as he is full of enthusiasm, it makes him quite a handful. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, sharing his kennel quite happily, and we know from his former “not-family” that he is fine with children, but he will need strong handling. Baxter is a stocky short haired cross who was born in January 2017.

Jaja | T320

JajaFemale, Young, Medium

Jaja is a young fox terrier cross who was brought to the SCPA by her owner who was not able to look after her dog due to health reasons. Jaja is quite a timid and delicate looking dog, so at first she found life at the refuge a bit overwhelming. However once she started sharing her kennel she started settling in well. We suspect that she has some podenco or other similar breed in her, as she has very large erect ears, which makes her look simply adorable. Jaja would love to find a new home soon. As a small-ish female she should have no trouble, especially as despite her breed, hunting is very far from her mind. Cuddles are more her thing!

Pochontas | T319

Pocahontas female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

One of several lovely young females who arrived at around the same time in June 2017, Pocahontas is a delight. She is pale brown and white in colour, really stunning. She was born in June 2017, and so is naturally lively and full of fun. We have no idea of her history, but she shows no sign at all of having been mistreated; she loves everyone and seems to be fine with other dogs. Pocahontas is of medium size and would fit into just about any home where she can have love, exercise and cuddles.

Mimi | T318

Mimi female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Mimi is most definitely a DRC hot pick. She is an adorable black shepherd cross who was born in June 2017, so was just a year old when she arrived at the refuge. She has wonderful body language, is really wiggly and affectionate. She seems to have either very good manners or some training, as she sits well and relatively calmly for such a young, active dog. She has a very engaging face and will stay medium sized and is fine with other dogs. We can find out how she behaves with cats, of course. Mimi is vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip and her adoption fee is €170
