Louison|R271

Louison male beauceronMale, Young, Large

Louison is a big, impressive but adorable beauceron who was born in April 2011. He was brought to the SPA from a nearby village where he was found straying, so we know nothing of his history. It is natural to assume that a dog this magnificent will be reclaimed, however so far no one has come to look for Louison, so it is time for him to find a new home. Those of you who know about this breed will know that they fall into the herding/working dog category, however they make great family pets, too. And Louison, with his imposing stature and gentle nature, would make a lovely family pet.

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!

Hershey|R225

Hershey male BraqueMale, Young, Large

Wow, what a fabulous dog. Hershey is a chocolate brown braque who was born in May 2013. He is simply magnificent, tall, elegant, positively regal, and a dog to make any owner proud. A dog of this size can look imposing, but Hershey is very friendly and affectionate. A bit slobbery, but that is due to his breed’s soft mouth. At the time of writing we have not tested Hershey with other dogs, but so far he appears to be extremely friendly and affectionate. His adoption fee is €170, which includes castration, microchip and vaccinations.

Look|R199

Look male german shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Look is a lovely gentle german shepherd cross who was found at the SPA gates one morning. He was identified so we called his owner, who said that she no longer wanted him, and she subsequently came along to sign him over to us. Look has spent a lot of time tied up in a garden, so he has not seen much of the world. Despite this he is very affectionate, and is gradually getting to know other dogs. He settles down really well on walks and is very attentive to whomever is walking him. Look was born in April 2013.

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. 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

Bullit|R104

BullitMale, Mature, Large

After leaving the refuge for what we hoped would be his forever home, poor Bullit is back. For one glorious moment, it was thought that he would be able to live with another dog, and his new owner made every effort, however it was not to be. We are looking for a fan of the German Shepherd to offer Bullit a home. He is a pedigree and is simply magnificent. However at ten years old, it won’t be easy for him to find a home. As yet Bullit has no health problems, and is an active dog who adores his walks. He would love an owner with no other animals and who can give him the love he deserves. We really do not want him to spend summer in the heat of the refuge.

Fadista|R65

Fadista male large shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Again, it was sad to see Fadista back at the SPA. He was adopted recently after arriving last summer weighing in at less than half of his normal body weight. The SPA brought him back to health and he is a magnificent beast. The problem with this being that lots of people are scared of dogs of this size, and such was the case with the people in the village where his adopter lives. So in the interest of neighbourly relations, Fadista is back. He is a huge-headed cross breed (no permits required) who was born in August 2014. He is fine with other dogs and often has the run of the SPA when the gates are closed in the mornings. Everyone’s favourite gentle giant!

Tyson|R64

Tyson large white male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It is very sad to see Tyson back at the SPA. He was abandoned on February 8th, which by coincidence is exactly one year to the day since he was brought in last time. Tyson was adopted in July and the couple who took him were just not right for him. I would say he was not right for them, but that implies he was at fault, whereas this is more a case of young people taking bad advice. 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.

Flavien| PP451

Flavian beauceron bouvier bernois crossMale, Young, Large

Flavien was brought to the SPA by the police municipal in Esperaza, who found him straying. His owners recognised him thanks to Facebook and told us that they would collect him, but not if it meant spending any money. Well, of course we had no plans to charge them anything, but they needed to pay the vet to have their dog identified, and this they simply refused to do. Sadly we have no choice than to put Flavien up for adoption. He is a beauceron crossed with a bouvier bernois, and was born in October 2011. He is fine with dogs, cats and children. What a shame that a dog who appears to be perfect should be left at the SPA because his owners do not have the money to make him “legal”. Still, as he used to spend his days tied up, perhaps it is for the best.

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.
