Cliona | R380

ClionaFemale, Mature, Medium 

I can’t believe that Cliona is back. That was a sad day at the SPA believe me, and seeing staff crying is not nice. Many of you will remember this dog, who was brought into the SPA last summer after weeks of straying. She was covered in ugly tumours and a fundraising campaign was launched to pay for her operations. She emerged as a sleek and beautiful black lab cross, and we were delighted when she was homed to people who had been walking her regularly during her recuperation. Five months later and she was brought back with the explanation that she had bitten the father. We know that Cliona is nervous of many people (especially men), which is hardly surprising when you bear in mind her history. But it turns out that she was approached in the dark while she was sleeping and that is when she bit. That is no excuse, of course, but it makes her reaction a bit easier to understand. I think her ideal home would be with softly spoken people, preferably female, and away from small children. Cliona is fine with most other dogs and 100% fine with cats.

Tornade | T133

Tornade young female jagged terrierFemale, Young, Small 

Tornade was adopted from the SPA when she was a puppy, then brought back by her owners who were moving house. Her next adoption followed very quickly (after all, Tornade is small and female, a winning combination for adoptions), but it failed too, for completely different reasons. And this time we know far more about Torande. Far from being the cute little girl she appears, this two-year old jagd terrier is a feisty girl. She has boundless energy and is a escape artist par excellence. She is fine with most other dogs, but has a tendency to dominate, and she is not at all good with cats. She does have lots of positive points, though, don’t worry! She is highly intelligent and, given clear boundaries, is a great companion. And once she is tired she loves a cuddle. Tornade is looking for an active, training-minded family with an enclosed garden. She will be a very rewarding friend for the right home.

Lana | T099

Lana young female labrador crossFemale, Young, Medium

Lana has been at the SPA before, she was found as a stray last year and brought in, although she was recognised on Facebook but never collected. Her first home did not work out, as the owner lived in an apartment and worked long hours; in fact it is hard to see why he thought having a dog was a good idea. So it is not really Lana’s fault that she is back; she is just a typical young dog; eager to please, eager to learn and with some basic education. Lana looks like a small and slightly built labrador, she was born in December 2016 and is great on the lead, as well as being fine with other dogs and children.

Agatha | T048

Agatha female beuceron crossFemale, Young, Large

Agatha is a lovely sociable beauceron cross who was born in March 2017. She was found unidentified and brought to the SPA in January 2018, and we hope that she finds a home soon. Chances are that she turned out to be bigger than her owners expected when they got her as a puppy. The fact that she was not identified says it all, sadly. Agatha is already sharing her kennel and is a lovely affectionate girl. She is now sterilised and fully vaccinated and of course identified. A fabulously good natured dog.

Looba | T047

Looba female Brittany spaniel crossFemale, Young, Small

We are reasonably sure that Looba is the mother of Bouba; he sticks to her like glue, and her spaniel colours can be seen in his fur. Looba is a classic looking Breton spaniel though a bit on the small side. She was born in January 2015 according to the vet’s estimate. Unlike her son, Looba arrived unidentified. She is now sterilised and fully vaccinated and ready for her new home. Ideally this would be one where she can have lots of exercise; she is an active little dog. However as well as often being seen on the hunt (as flushers), Breton spaniels make fantastic family pets. You can read about the breed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany_dog.

Tatiana | T030

TatinaFemale, Young, Medium

This is not Tatiana’s first time at the SPA. She used to be called Maddie, and as far as we were concerned she was happily homed in August 2016 after spending four months at the refuge. However a phone call from the SPA in Toulouse told us that Tatiana had been found and brought to them, and the phone numbers associated with her microchip were no longer working. So Tatiana is back. She is a fabulous brindle coloured girl, who is now fine with other dogs (although she wasn’t before her last adoption, so she has mellowed!). Tatiana was born in April 2014 and we know that she is a great family pet. She is impeccable on the lead and shares her kennel happily.

Joli | R526

Joli female griffon crossFemale, Young, Medium

Jolie arrived with (R525 Junior) and in an ideal world, these two dogs would be rehomed together. In an ideal world, though, they would not even be at the SPA, they only arrived due to the illness of their owner. Jolie is a stunning griffon cross who was born in January 2014. She is very affectionate and good with other dogs. Like Junior she loves to play and would share her life happily with other dogs.

Mila | R544

Mira female border collieFemale, Young, Medium

Mila is a fabulous border collie who has just been abandoned at the SPA. We often get border crosses, but I am sure you will all agree that this girl is a stunner! Mila is three years old and is quite nervous especially of men. However the love she is receiving at the SPA is helping her with her fears. Mila can meet other dogs on walks, but in a home tends to be very jealous, so will be best of as an only dog. Mila is not at all good with cats, so a patient, loving, feline-free home is needed for this beautiful girl, please.

Helda | R545

Helda female German ShepherdFemale, Young, Large

Helda is a purebreed Germand shepherd who was bought at a local pet store five years ago. Having a purebreed puppy was important enough at the time for this family to spend considerable money on a dog, but Helda has ended up neglected at the bottom of a garden. Unsurprisingly she barks for attention, and it is for this reason that she has been abandoned at the SPA. Helda is five years old (born 31.07.12) but already has a cataract in one eye. Poor girl. She is fine with certain male dogs but not cats, and at the moment she is scared and timid. She is a fabulous girl though, and has had a miserable life up to now.

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
