A home to home for Rosie…

Who could give little Rosie a forever home? Her mum has gone into hospital and Rosie needs the stability of a new home. Rosie has known only only love since she was born and is a happy, lively terrier.

Rosie…far right!

She is 4 year old and is fine with other dogs and children.

Rosie needs to learn some leash manners but she is a young, clever girl so this wouldn’t be a big issue.

She is chipped, vaccinated and sterilised and in good health. Size wise she is a little bigger than a Jack Russell.

If you could offer a home to Rosie than please get in touch by emailing website@dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk


Rita has been rehomed!

Many thanks to everyone who shared for Rita and enquired about adopting her; she now has a wonderful new home!

It is wonderful that so many adoptions have taken place during lockdown, and this is proof, if any more were needed, of how important the company of animals is during stressful times. Yes, despite restrictions on our movements, life carries on in all its rich tapestry. Including, sadly, people needing to rehome their dogs.

DRC is trying to find a home for lovely Rita, an 18 month old German Shepherd. Or Shepherdess, rather! Rita’s owner is seriously ill, and in fact the only reason she has not gone to a hospice is that were she to do so, Rita would be left alone. So yes, time is of the essence.

Rita’s owners were already elderly when they took her on, and sadly the husband passed away last week. An unwise decision to take on a dog, for sure, but that is not Rita’s fault. Nor is it her fault that she has had little in the way of education. However she has been visited by a dog educator who can vouch for her wonderful nature, and is in fact the person to be contacted with reference to rehoming Rita.


Rita is a beautiful 18 month old German Shepherd who needs a new home

He, Arthur, assures us that Rita responds well to training, and like most dogs of her breed, will be a loving and devoted friend. As is typical of GSDs, she has a tendency to guard but has never shown any aggression to humans. As long as introductions are done properly, Rita can live with other dogs. She has been living with cats although she does have a tendency to chase, without ever doing any damage. She shows no aggression to children, although Arthur feels that due to her boisterous nature, young kids might be at risk of being bowled over.

Rita’s ideal home would be with a training minded family, preferably one who knows the breed. They will have lots of space and time to exercise and play with this young, exuberant dog. She has a lot of learning to do, and is not used to the lead, but she is quick to learn and eager to please.

Rita is beautiful and friendly and will make a great friend

Rita is currently living between Mirepoix and Lavalanet but can travel to her new home. She is vaccinated, identified and will be sterilised before joining her new family. There are no adoption fees.

If you can offer a home to Rita please contact

A Home to Home for Cesar

Cesar is a 13 year old Brittany spaniel who really needs a home through no fault of his own. His dad died suddenly and mum is struggling. Cesars dad worked in a vineyard and Cesar went with him every day.

Cesar is still an active boy and loves walks and being outside. He will need a well enclosed garden and can live with other dogs but not cats. He is a friendly boy who loves his cuddles!

He is identified but not as yet castrated or vaccinated….we will get this done.

So who can give this lovely boy a nice retirement where he will be loved and spoilt?

If you think you can offer him a home then please email website@dogrescarcassonne.co.uk

REHOMED – Gucci….

Gucci is an ex ScPA dog who needs a new home due to no fault of his own or his owners.

Here his what his mum says about him…

‘Gucci is a happy go lucky little dog who loves life and just about everyone and every thing in it. He is 8 years old – going on 8 months!

He has been with us almost 4 months and during that time he has proved himself a great little dog who is fun to be with and very easy to have around.

He is looking for a new home through no fault of his own as sadly unforeseen circumstances have arisen, however we cannot bear to take him back to the refuge and so are hoping to find a good, loving home from home.


Gucci is completely house trained and sleeps in his crate. He can be left in the house without any problems and is not destructive.

He loves to be groomed – not so eager about the bathing bit but never objects!

We have had other dogs to stay in the house and Gucci is fine with them.


He walks well on a lead, waits patiently to have his lead put on and doesn’t pull. He is not scared of anything except maybe a bit nervous of other dogs when he is out on a lead and so sometimes barks at them.

He adores running free, has never run away and his recall is very good.

He does love to chase anything that moves quickly ie birds.  He will chase cats on the move, but he has never shown any aggression to them and is getting more relaxed with those which refuse to budge!

He loves to go in the car and travels well, often settling to sleep.

We don’t have children but Gucci has had no problem with the ones he has met both at home and outside.

Ideally he needs a home with a garden to play in and plenty of walks. He is a superb dog for anyone enjoying an outdoor life – a truly great companion, full of love and life.

If you think you may be interested in offering Gucci a home I am more than happy to answer any questions on 0652951938 . Please note that I cannot return calls to numbers other than French ones.’

Gucci is identified, vaccinated and castrated and there is no adoption fee for the right owner.

Jhabu will be leaving for his new home soon!

We are looking for a new home for stunning pedigree Great Dane Jhabu.

His owners left for a new life in Australia, but before doing so they found Jhabu what they thought would be a home for life. Sadly it was not to be, and his new family wishes to rehome him.

Blue merle great Dane

Djabu is a magnificent boy

Jhabu is a magnificent blue merle Great Dane. He is five years old, is vaccinated, castrated and is in good overall health. He came from a breeder and is a fabulous looking dog. Jhabu was born with one leg shorter than the other, but thanks to regular exercise and massage he no longer limps, so his handicap is of no significance, although he might get a touch of arthritis in later life.

His behavioural problems are perhaps due to the fact that his original owner allowed him to nip when he was playing. Being nipped by a dog of this size, even during play, can’t be much fun, so his interim owner has been working on this. Jhabu is having trouble accepting that the rules have changed, so an experienced owner is needed, and he is probably best being homed away from small children.

Jhabu can live with cats, although supervision will be required

Jhabu can live with other dogs, although careful introductions will be needed. If play gets too rough Jhabu can forget how big he is, and so needs to take a bit of a time out, but this just requires a bit of supervision. He can be a bit brusque with cats, and again supervision will be required.

Jhabu is a magnificent dog who is responding very well to his new training regime. It is never too late to learn, and Jhabu is keen to do so.

What he needs most is a change of environment, a calm home, preferably with someone who knows the breed and has time to devote to him.

Djabu loves the outdoors, but would like a calm life.

Can you offer a new home to Jhabu? There are no adoption fees and Jhabu is located about 1 hour from Carcassonne, near to Mirepoix.


Mahi’s owners are moving to the other side of the world and had arranged for someone to take on the care of their dog. He is in Fenouillet 66220.

Unfortunately, this fell through last week and they are moving out in a weeks time.

Mahi is a 3 year old border collie.

He is neutered, will be identified and vaccinated and is in good health. He is slightly smaller than some borders, weighing 20kg.

Past the crazy puppy stage, so is well behaved. Still loves to play given the opportunity, and quick to learn.

Ideal for anyone who enjoys going for walks or possibly interested in agility training.

Gets on very well with other dogs but not cats and have lived with a child.

More info to follow as we get it.

Please share for this lovely dog!

Email webiste@dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk if you are interested or call Oliver on 0698341217

Beautiful Mahi…

A Home to Home for Nino


Nino loves to run and play

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Nino. He is a fabulous boy who is five years old and is currently living with his owner. She adopted him from the ScPA but is unable to cope with a young dog and loves him too much to bring him back for rehoming. So DRC has promised to help.

Nino is bright and attentive

Nino is a great boy. He is fine with other dogs, fabulous with children, and although he will chase cats on the move, he has never shown any aggression to them. He is affectionate, housetrained and lively. And therein lies the problem; his current owner is unable to walk him, and although he has access to a large garden, he needs walks and a lot more fun with other dogs than he has at present.

Nino loves children

Nino is living close to Carcassonne but can travel to his new home. Obviously there are no adoption fees, and Nino is vaccinated, identified by microchip and castrated.

Who has a place in their home and heart for a beautiful setter?

Nino loves water

Filou has found a home!

DRC is trying to help find a home for beautiful lurcher Filou.

Despite the name, this is a female dog, and is a fabulously fit ten years old. She needs to find a new home as sadly for her, her Dutch owners are having to return to the Netherlands for health reasons. Those same health reasons mean they are unable to take Filou with them.

Filou loves to sleep

We know lots of you love this breed, so here is your big chance!

Filou loves other dogs, in fact until recently she lived with a pal. She is not great with very young kids, but can live happily with older children and adults. We do not know what she is like with cats. She has not had many walks, as the couple have a huge garden in which Filou plays.

She also loves to play 

Filou has been loved her whole life. She responds well to commands, but at the moment only in Dutch! But as we see from the adoptions that take place at the ScPA, dogs are incredibly quick to learn, and we are sure that pretty soon Filou will have learned English, or French, or German or whatever language her new owner speaks.

Her owners love her so much that they would rather take her to the vet to be put to sleep than bring her to a refuge. This may seem strange to some of you, but they insist that they do not want their dog to ever have to experience refuge life. So although their position sounds harsh, we have to have sympathy with their wishes. It also means that finding Filou a new home really is a matter of life or death.

Filou loves to relax

Filou is sterilised, vaccinated and identified and although she is currently in the Tarn just north of Albi, she can travel to her new home.

Please help this lovely elderly lady. Share her story, share her photos and if you can help, please get in touch. DRC is lucky enough to have the help of a Dutch speaker, who has kindly offered to help with any questions you may have.

Together we can find a new home for Filou! We don’t have much time, though, so get your skates on…..

Just look at those eyes. …Please help Filou

Lizy has found a new home!

We are trying to find a new home for Lizy, whose young owner is seriously ill.

Lizy is a griffon fauve de Bretagne, and shares many of her breeds characteristics, but not all. Read on!

Lizy was adopted from a refuge over six years ago, and is now eight years old. Before arriving at the refuge she had probably been mistreated, as she was very timid. Some of these fears remain, even now, but with love and patience she has overcome many of her issues. This is partly thanks to the two dogs with whom she has been sharing her life since her adoption, and it would be nice for her to continue to have canine companionship in her new home too. In fact the more dogs who are around the happier she seems to be.

Lizy is nervous around strangers, plus she is scared of all the usual things, bikes, cars, lorries. She mixes well with other dogs on walks. Plus she is fine with cats (as long as they are dog-friendly), children and pigeons!

Her current home has no garden, but Lizy knows all the rules, barking to go outside. She is good off the lead and has pretty good recall…for a griffon, that is. As her owner says, she is eight years old, but in her head she is more like eight months. Fauve lovers will know what she means!

Lizy is looking for a new home with a kind and patient family. She is in the Tarn and Garonne but can travel to her new home. Her owner would love to know her beloved dog is safe and happy.

Lizy is fully vaccinated, identified and sterilised. Please contact us if you can offer her a home.
