Morgana | T468

Morgana female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large

As soon as this lovely pale shepherd cross arrived at the SCPA pound we were contacted by the person who had found her. Thanks to some detective work, they had tracked down the dog’s owners, had spoken to them on the phone, and wanted to reassure us that this dog would be collected the next day. The owner never came, much to the disgust and disappointment of this good samaritan. Yes, the fact remains that many of the dogs at the ScPA are there despite the fact that their owners could come and collect them. They just choose not to. Morgana, a magnificent and gentle dog with calm, dreamy eyes, deserves better. At the moment she is still in the Pound (as we have no formal certificate to abandon her we have no choice but to treat her as a lost dog), we will get her mixing with other dogs and out on walks, and sterilised. Yes, coming to the ScPA is the best thing that could happen to this lovely lass.

Lasko | T471

Lasko male  German shepherdMale, Young, Large

Lasko was brought in with his pal Gadjo when their owner became too ill to look after his dogs, and he is not at all happy behind bars. Lasko seems totally apathetic, just lying on the concrete, refusing to eat or engage with visitors. This fabulous German shepherd was born in May 2015, and has known nothing but love all his life. He has been living with cats, dogs and children, and is a very gentle dog, as being a very handsome one. We would love him to find a new home. Please get in touch if you can help.

Goliath | T428

Goliath male douge argentinMale, Young, Large



Goliath is a big and handsome dogue argentin who arrived at the ScPA having been found in a village about an hour’s drive from the refuge. Unable to contact the owner, the police brought Goliath to the refuge with his son (we assume) Samson. Goliath was particularly thin when he arrived, and both dogs were covered in fleas. They were immediately treated, of course, and regular (and good quality) food had turned them back into very handsome dogs. New homes required, methinks! Goliath was born in November 2011, and is a very affectionate dog, covering anyone he meets in big slobbery kisses. If that is your idea of heaven (and it is pretty close to heaven, I have to say!), then please get in touch!

Samson | T429

Samson young male Douge argentineMale, Young, Large


Samson arrived with a dog called Goliath, who we assume is his dad. That being the case, he is a dogue argentin cross and the vet estimates his date of birth as being August 2017. So not fully grown yet. Gulp! We know that lots of you like big dogs, though, and when they are as gentle as this lad, why not? To be honest stepping into the cage to take photos of these two was a bit nerve-wracking, as they are very big dogs. However it was almost death by licking; they are really affectionate and are desperate for human contact. They are getting plenty of that at the ScPA, of course, but both could do with new homes.

Minta | T426

Minta female griffon crossFemale, Young, Large


Oh, beautiful Minta! This lovely griffon was born in August 2015, according to the vet’s estimate. Like so many of our dogs she arrived unidentified. She is a stunning girl, quite tall and rangey, but she will fill out now she is at the ScPA and gets regular meals. Minta is extremely trusting of people; although she is very slightly timid, that is probably due to the noise at the refuge. She is fine with dogs and seems nervous of cats. Minta has slightly wiry fur, which is mostly white apart from that beautiful black eye. What a stunner. We want Minta to find a fabulous home, so please get in touch if you think that might be you!

Mila | T309

Mila border collie crossFemale, Young, Large


This is Mila’s third time at the SCPA. She is quite a complicated dog, and whereas both her previous adopters were decent enough people, Mila took some time to show her true colours. Truth is that however tolerant she appears to be of other dogs in the short term, this border collie would be far better off as the only dog in the family. She is bright and intelligent, like most borders, but she definitely has her moments. When some people pass her kennel, she is calm and docile, with others she leaps up like an enraged beast. When she finds the right owner she will be the most obedient and devoted dog, but I suspect that it is Mila who will do the choosing. She was born in November 2014 and needs a border experienced home without other animals and where there are no small children or cats. She will make a great dog for the right owner!

Diane | T347

Diane female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large


Diana is a fabulous girl who we hope does not get overlooked. She is a young shepherd cross, born, according to the vet’s estimate, in December 2017. We have no idea at all why she is at the refuge, apart from the fact that she is a young dog who needs exercise. Diana is fine with other dogs, she shares her kennel very nicely and although she pulls initially she soon settles down on walks. And bearing in mind she was at the SCPA for over two weeks before going out on her first walk, it is hardly surprising that she had some energy to get rid of. The volunteers who walked her said she was just adorable; really attentive and affectionate. Diana will make a wonderful pet for an active family, either as a single dog or as a playmate. She is vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip and her adoption fee is €170.

Jax | T365

JaxMale, Young, Large


Jax was abandoned by his owners as they were out all day and, left to his own devices, Jax barked a lot. This annoyed the neighbours, and as there was no solution possible (ah-hem), Jax, a young brindle coloured beauceron, was brought in for rehoming. It is probably the best thing that could have happened to this dog. He has seen nothing of life, and is terrified of his own shadow. Even the noise of his food bowl terrifies him. Poor, poor dog. As yet we have not been able to find him a companion to share with, but we hope to do so soon, as dogs are much happier when they are not alone. And Jax has so much to learn, and this will be done far quicker once he is able to share his kennel. So for the moment Jax is a work in progress, but he is in the right place, as the staff will look after him well, have no fear. Jax was born in October 2016 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated.

Gaya | T361

Gaya female griffon crossFemale, Young, Large


Gaya is a slightly timid but adorable griffon cross who was brought to the refuge due to that age-old problem…not all dogs can live in harmony with cats. Gaya, with her griffon-y looks, probably has quite a developed prey instinct. So a cat-free home is definitely required for this girl. Gaya was born in October 2017, so is still very young. She is fine with other dogs, and is gradually coming out of her shell. Gaya will be a very rewarding dog; she has so much love to give, and we want to find her wonderful home.

Pica | T277

PicaFemale, Young, Large

When Pica arrived at the ScPA she was absolutely terrified. She hid in her box and occasionally put her nose out to see what was happening and to bark at anyone who approached. Yes, all the classic signs of a dog who has been beaten. A couple of months of love and she was a changed dog. Pica is a delight. Full of fun and affection, she now seeks out human contact and loves her walks and cuddles. We think she is some kind of levrier cross, she has the right build, although there is definitely something else in the mix. Pica was born in June 2016, and although her life up to now has probably been very tough, she is now firmly on the road to a far brighter future.
