Dogs

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.

Andy | T323

AndyMale, Young, Large

Andy is at the ScPA due to his owner’s being in hospital. It is always sad when dogs arrive like this; they are still very much loved, but health issues have forced a separation. Andy is still a very young dog, so with any luck he can find a new home soon and have a fresh start with someone who loves him just as much. He is a magnificent lad, a big shepherd cross, probably with some husky. He really is stunning. Andy is fine with other dogs, and although he would probably act as a good burglar deterrent, that is due to his imposing size, rather than his gentle nature. Andy was born in April 2015 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Tikia | T224

Tikia female crossFemale, Young, Medium

It might strike you when you see the photo of Tikia that she has a lot of staffie in her. Yes, you are right. However luckily for her she does not fall within the measurements which would make her a “dangerous dog”. So anyone can adopt this lovely girl, without any special permits or paperwork. Phew! Tikia arrived already identified, but her owner’s details were not up to date and so far no one has come to reclaim her. Tikia was born in March 2013 and although she is okay with some dogs and can mix with them on walks etc, she would probably be better off as an only dog.

Nairobi | T202

Nairobi shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Like Chippeur Nairobi was found tied up in the middle of a field, and although neither dog was thin or showed signs of mistreatment, what is being tied up in a field if it is not mistreatment? Nairobi is a very handsome dog, his pretty tricoloured markings really give him that special something that we (and he) hope will attract an adopter very soon. Nairobi is a shepherd cross, he is fine with other dogs and is very receptive to people. His date of birth is estimated as being March 2015, so this lad really is in the prime of life.

Chippeur | T200

Chippeur male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Shepherd cross Chippeur was brought in by a local rescue organisation who found him and his pal tied up in a field in the middle of nowhere. Okay, there might be a good reason for this (I am having trouble thinking of one, admittedly), but if that is the case, then surely the owner would have come to collect his dogs. Neither is underweight and both are sociable and affectionate, so maybe it was just a question of the owner not wanting to bring his dogs in for rehoming in a responsible manner. Chippeur was born in March 2015 and is a lovely dark borwn and black cross. Chippeur is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

Griff | R481

Griff young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Grif is the third of the three dogs who was brought to the SPA at the age of two having spent their lives hitherto in a garage as their owner did not want them when they were born. Grif is making slower progress than his siblings, but he too is just about ready for a new home, where, of course, progress will be even quicker. Griff is a bit more griffon-like than his siblings, mainly white and with a lovely wiry beard. He was born in October 2015 and would like a home with another dog and kind, patient owners, please.

  • Calm and gentle

  • Would prefer another dog for company

Ernie| R316

Ernie male rottweiler crossMale, Medium, Young

Rottweiler cross Ernie was adopted but brought back in July. He really is not a dog for first-time owners, and that is what his last family was. Despite our advice (we advised them against the adoption, too) and their best intentions, this young couple were just not ready for a dog like Ernie. Born in January 2015, Ernie is still in need of education. Not the usual commands, he has mastered all of them. His difficulty is with authority. He needs a firm hand or he risks running rings round his owner. Not that he bites, he is just a bit unruly. If you like a chunky dog and are an experienced owner, Ernie could be the one for you.

  • Friendly and affectionate if a bit unruly
  • Needs an experienced owner
  • Will make a lovely family pet

Indian| PP562

Indian female Czech Wolf DogFemale, Large, Mature

Indian is the second of the Czech wolfdogs at the SPA. She came from a man who rescues this breed but who had become overwhelmed with numbers, and the SPA stepped in to help. Indian is the mate of Artos, and would prefer to be homed with him and without other dogs if possible. She is about the size of a German shepherd, and timid with people who she does not know. Once she knows someone she will happily lick and nuzzle them, and shows lots of affection. She is not good with dogs other than Artos and cannot be homed with children. Indian was born in September 2013.

  • Timid with people not good with children
  • Mate of Artos or homed alone
  • Magnificent looking dog

Artos| PP563

Artos male Czech wolf dogMale, Large, Mature

It was only after the recent DRC photo shoot that I realised that Artos was not on our website, although he has been at the SPA since December last year! Taken in by the SPA by a rescuer who had bitten off more than he could chew, Artos is a czech wolfdog. If you don’t know this breed, it is worth doing some research, as they are quite particular! Artos is a big male, fabulous to look at and fabulous on the lead. He is good with some females, but does not like males, even of his own breed (yes, he is the Alpha dog). He is very affectionate with people, but we would not advise that he be homed with small children (although he can meet them on walks without any problems). Artos is magnificent and everyone feels a surge of pride whilst walking him. He as born in December 2010.

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with some female dogs
  • Magnificent looking dog

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!
