Dogs

Oscar|R167

Oscar male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Oscar’s owner was unable to manage this fairly large strong dog as well as her other animals, so Oscar is at the SPA looking for a new home. Oscar pulls quite hard on the lead, especially if he sees horses, which he will chase. He is a shepherd cross with a small griffon-like beard who was born in February 2016. Oscar is good with other dogs but has a tendency to be a bit dominant.

  • Fine with other dogs
  • Needs training on the lead
  • A lovely dog

Tyson|R64

Tyson large white male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It is very sad to see Tyson back at the SPA. His adoptive family was just not right for him and took bad advice regarding his needs. What kind of behaviourist tells an owner that the dog is “insane” and will never be happy inside a house? In any case, Tyson deserves better, so we will do better at finding him the right home next time. He is a big white shepherd who was born in February 2012. He is fabulous on the lead and is a total pleasure to walk. Although he shares his kennel at the SPA he tends to be a bit more exclusive out of the SPA, so perhaps he would be happier as an only dog.

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!

  • Still full of energy
  • Will need an enclosed garden
  • Needs a loving family

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.

Nesquick| PP429

Nesquick french spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Nesquick is a French spaniel cross who was brought to the SPA in late September 2016 having been found in a local village having rocks thrown at him by a group of children. Unsurprisingly he is now vary wary of then, so we would recommend a home with older children only. Nesquick was born in September 2013, so is in the prime of life. And boy, does he know it! This lad is very strong on the lead and needs a strong owner, or (as we do at the SPA) a garden where he can run off some energy first. He is fine with other dogs and for people who like long walks and exercise, he will make a great dog.

Patty|PP298

Patty labrador cross femaleLarge, Young, Female

Patty was found with since adopted Sweety, and she had a bit of trouble adjusting to the loss of her long term pal. Now however she is back sharing a kennel, this time with a big boisterous male. Patty is a gorgeous deep black labrador cross. She is very affectionate and although she is quite strong on the lead, she settles down well. She is playful and fun and would love a home with lots of walks, no cats, and perhaps a handsome friend to play with. Patty was born in July 2013 and like all our dogs will  leave vaccinated, sterilised and identified, all for €170.

Pato|P078

patoLarge, Mature, Male

Pato was adopted recently and brought back for no particular reason other than an apartment is not the right place for a dog of this size! Pato is a big dog, and despite his age (he was born in May 2004) he is very active. He is a fine looking boy, but he has a major problem. He HATES cars! My Bella will chase cars, but Pato will attack them, whether stationary or not. Not only that, he will bite through the tyres. Hmm. What sort of home would suit this dog? One with a garden in which no cars enter, for sure. And as for walking, it would have to be somewhere where no cars are likely to pass by, or he will lunge and probably take you with him. Not an easy dog to home! But he deserves his chance!

Lazar| LL332

Lazar german shepherd crossLarge, Young, Male  

I was at the SPA when Lazar was brought in. His owner cried. Divorce had left him and hence his dog homeless and there was no prospect of a change in circumstance to allow him to keep his dog. Lazar was born in April 2013 and is a lovely German shepherd cross. He has had no training, but we are working on that. Lazar spends some time every afternoon in the office with dog trainer Carole, where he is learning his manners. He is getting used to people approaching him and is learning not to jump up to greet them. He is turning into a lovely dog, and I have a feeling that with relatively little work, he really will be man’s best friend.

Taser | LL385

taserMedium, Young, Male  

Taser is a brindle and white boxer who arrived at the SPA in August 2014. At the time he was a bit imid, but he has changed a lot since being at the SPA. Hardly surprising when you consider that he has spent so much time there! Taser is good with female dogs but not with cats. He is strong on the lead but soon calms down, and is a very playful dog who would benefit from some training and an experienced home. He was born in December 2010.
