Oreo | T326

Oreo young male dalmationMale, Young, Large

Oreo is that rarest of things at a refuge; a dalmatian! A young dalmatian, too. He is just a year old and is a stunning lad. Although he is officially in the pound, we know that he is not going to be reclaimed, so if you are after a dog of this breed, then get in touch quickly. Oreo is very timid and in need of socialisation, but he is not at all snappy, and to be honest just looks bewildered. I am not surprised, to be honest. We will soon have him feeling better, but of course what he really needs is a new home. Why not come and meet this lovely lad. He will be vaccinated, castrated and identified and all for €170.

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. Once out of her kennel, however, she changed and now that she is sharing her kennel, she is making great progress. 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.

Baxter | T278

Baxter large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Baxter was brought to the SCPA by a father and his daughter who claimed to have found him and kept him for a week before realising that a big dog like this was not suited to apartment living. Yeah, right. So when they said “found” they meant found on the internet, I guess. Still, there is no other option than to find this big boy a new home. Yes, Baxter is a big dog. Well, only 40kg or so, but as he is full of enthusiasm, it makes him quite a handful. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, sharing his kennel quite happily, and we know from his former “not-family” that he is fine with children, but he will need strong handling. Baxter is a stocky short haired cross who was born in January 2017.

Andy | T323

AndyMale, Young, Large

Andy is at the ScPA due to his owner’s being in hospital. It is always sad when dogs arrive like this; they are still very much loved, but health issues have forced a separation. Andy is still a very young dog, so with any luck he can find a new home soon and have a fresh start with someone who loves him just as much. He is a magnificent lad, a big shepherd cross, probably with some husky. He really is stunning. Andy is fine with other dogs, and although he would probably act as a good burglar deterrent, that is due to his imposing size, rather than his gentle nature. Andy was born in April 2015 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Google | T257

Google male setter crossMale, Young, Medium

Google is a wonderful setter/border collie cross who was brought to the ScPA for rehoming by his family due to illness. Theirs, not the dog’s, I should add. Google was born in September 2014 and is a stunning lad. He is a bit reactie to male dogs, but fine with female dogs and cats. He is fine on the lead and is a very attentive dog, keen to learn and keen to please. As with all dogs adopted from the ScPA, Google is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

Neiko | T223

Neiko young male crossMale, Young, Large

Neiko was found wandering on the road by a volunteer and brought to the SPA. Apparently he was often seen straying, and whereas he may well have found his way home, no one has come to reclaim, so it seems he was yet another unwanted dog who was left to lead his own life. Neiko was born in September 2017. Little more than a puppy, in actual fact. Neiko is very energetic and loves playing with other dogs. He has had no education at all, so walking him is not easy, but of course at the SPA he is learning fast. Neiko would love a family where he can have more attention and learn even more quickly.

Bridou | T227

Bridou young male crossMale, Young, Large

Bridou is just a big bouncy puppy and that is surely why he is at the SPA. As so often happens, he was brought in by a woman who claimed to have found him. However it was clear that he was her dog, presumably picked up for free on leboncoin or another such internet site. She said that Bridou had jumped up and taken a sausage from her young daughter’s hand, which is why she couldn’t keep him. Hmmm, talk about mixing up your stories. In any case, Bridou needs a new home, and the sooner the better. No point leaving him with a family who are not at all dog people! Bridou was born in January 2018 and is clearly going to a big lad. He is fine with other dogs, but will need some training as he grows up, otherwise he could just become a big, out of control dog. If you think you could offer Bridou a home, please get in touch.

Despé | T187

DespeMale, Young, Large

Another puppy who has been returned to the SPA once he has reached his full size, Despé is a shepherd who was adopted from us in September. He would never have been up for adoption originally had his owner, who was looking for him, agreed to have him identified. But she refused, so Despé found a new family. And they, too, have let him down! Confined to a garage, Despé has not had the best time since leaving us. He has clearly had no education, he pulls on the lead and would benefit from a firm hand. Luckily for him he is sociable with both male and female dogs, and although he has lost some of his puppy cuteness, he is still a very handsome and affectionate dog. Despé was born in July 2017 and is a tricolured shepherd cross.

Whisky | T101

WhiskyMale, Young, Large

Whisky is a fairly large dog who has been found straying and unidentified. The family who brought him in had kept him for a few days and had done their best to find his owners, but without any luck. Inevitably that makes it unlikely that he will be reclaimed, so Whisky is looking for a new home. He is a lovely calm looking lad who appears to be well looked after. As soon as the pound time is up we will be able to walk this lad and tell you more about him, so for now he is one to watch. Whisky was born in February 2014.

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.
