Dogs

Aneth|PP122

AnethFemale, Mature, Medium

Aneth is a complicated dog and will be difficult to home, but that does not mean we should not try! Aneth is an anglo cross who has leischmaniasis, however it is well under control and she takes a tablet a day to keep the disease stabilised. That is not the major issue. This illness is usually enough to put people off, however despite this, Aneth has been adopted and brought back on two separate occasions for being a runner. And not just your average runner, either. Aneth will need a super-enclosed garden if she is to stay in one place. And she disappears on walks, too, so lead only for her. Not everyone’s ideal dog. However she is so adorable and affectionate that perhaps someone would be willing to give her a home. Aneth adores being outside, so if someone has an outside area in a well enclosed garden where she can sleep but have lots of cuddles too, that would probably be ideal. She was born in December 2009 and so although not the youngest of dogs, she is certainly one of the most active!

Flurry|PP267

Flurry female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Flurry has been at the SPA since June 2016, and although she was a bit difficult at first, she soon settled down and is now a great young girl. She has stunning looks, primarily black but with brown highlights, and not only is she fine with male dogs, but she is also wonderful on a lead. Don’t let her near cats, though. Flurry was born in June 2015, so is young and full of energy. She would be a great guard dog, as she will be devoted to her family. If you like long walks and would like some canine companionship, Flurry may be the girl for you.

Tao|PP497

TaoMale, Young, Medium

Border collie Tao has not had the easiest of lives so far. He was brought to the SPA in summer in an emaciated state, so weak he could hardly stand. He was taken home by a volunteer who nurtured him until he was ready to be adopted. His new family loved him, but he kept herding their children and the nipping was a problem. We tried to keep him out of the SPA by finding him another foster, but that did not work out and Tao is now in a kennel. Understandably he has lost a lot of confidence, and we are looking for a family without other dogs. Tao is okay with other dogs, but he is so affectionate that he needs a lot of attention and for now it is best if he doesn’t have to share his master’s love. He is beautifully trained and was born in April 2014. He is vaccinated, castrated and identified.

Flavien| PP451

Flavian beauceron bouvier bernois crossMale, Young, Large

Flavien was brought to the SPA by the police municipal in Esperaza, who found him straying. His owners recognised him thanks to Facebook and told us that they would collect him, but not if it meant spending any money. Well, of course we had no plans to charge them anything, but they needed to pay the vet to have their dog identified, and this they simply refused to do. Sadly we have no choice than to put Flavien up for adoption. He is a beauceron crossed with a bouvier bernois, and was born in October 2011. He is fine with dogs, cats and children. What a shame that a dog who appears to be perfect should be left at the SPA because his owners do not have the money to make him “legal”. Still, as he used to spend his days tied up, perhaps it is for the best.

Lutine| PP341

Lutine Female, Young, Medium

Here is one for the soft hearted. Lutine is a spaniel who arrived in early August 2016. At the time she had no fur and was emaciated. It didn’t take much time (seconds, in fact) for us the SPA to realise that she has leishmaniasis, and since then she has been receiving treatment. She now has fur and has put on weight and is ready for her new home. With regular medication her illness will not progress, but due to the advanced stage at which it was treated, the drugs are quite costly. For this reason the SPA is looking for a long term foster family, so that we can continue to pay for her ongoing vet bills. In this way we hope to find a home for lovely Lutine so that she does not spend her life at the SPA. She was born in 2010 and is very lively and you would never know that she is ill!

Nesquick| PP429

Nesquick  french spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Nesquick is a French spaniel cross who was brought to the SPA in late September. At the time of going to press he has not seen the vet, but he looks to be young and in good health. He is quite a stunner, too, and for people who like long walks and exercise, he will make a great dog.

Caillou | PP309

CaillouCaillou is an incredible dog and is without doubt my favourite dog at the SPA. He arrived in July 2016 aged 6 months and  for several weeks after his arrival he hid in the back of his kennel. We later found out he had been beaten with a shovel on a regular basis; no surprise that he did not trust people. With patience and love he has come out of his shell and has turned into a happy lad, who is buy soaking up everything around him. New things scare him, but he is getting better all the time. I take him to dog school every week, where he is fine with other dogs and loves to play. He walks off the lead, has good obedience skills and is quick to learn. He plays “fetch” (which he mastered in 10 minutes) and would probably excel at agility. Caillou is looking for a training minded family with plenty of love. In return he will be the best dog ever!

Chippeur |PP340

ChippeurChippeur is good with cats. We know that for sure, because he was brought in after having been found in a car with three cats; they had been locked in there for 2 days, and the fact that no fur was flying tells you all you need to know about this boy. Chippeur was born in August 2010 and is a dark and cream coloured shepherd cross. Lovely boy and very forgiving of humans. Luckily.

  • Really good with cats

Dylan|PP287

Dylan black male shepherd crossMedium, Young, Male

Dylan is a black male shepherd cross who was born in July 2015, according to the vet’s estimate. Like so many of our dogs he arrived as an unidentified stray, and he has the added misfortune of being black, dogs of which colour take the longest time to home. Dylan is a good natured dog and is sharing his kennel with another male.

Patty|PP298

Patty labrador cross femaleLarge, Young, Female

Patty was found with Sweety, and there seems to be no doubt that these dogs have spent a lot of time together even before they were found lost and alone on the Carcassonne ring road. They may well have been left there by people leaving on holiday, although as neither dog was identified, we will never know. Patty is a gorgeous deep black labrador cross. She is very affectionate and even though we know the chances of homing her together with Sweety are small, we hope that both dogs will find happiness again.Patty was born in July 2013.
