Hansel| A399

Hansel young male labrador crossMale, Young, Large

Hansel was found with his “sister” Gretl, who has already been adopted. Apart from being female, she was a bit smaller and an unusual russet colour, so attracted much more attention than her bigger, blacker “brother”. I suspect that Hansel just outgrew his owners’ expectations of size, as he is quite a big lad, and is only now learning to walk on the lead. Unsurprising that a big, lively dog should need some training, and it is a shame that irresponsible owners have yet again neglected to look after their dog properly. However look at how handsome Hansel is! He is a lovely boy, with stacks of enthusiasm for everything that life has to offer. He was born in January 2018 and although he has a lot of learning to do, he will be a very faithful and rewarding dog. home!

Vick| A425

VickMale, Young, Large

Although in reality no dog should be at the ScPA, this is even more so the case for Vick! This dog was rescued by a local association from a pound that covers villages not in our sector, who then found him a foster home. His foster family no longer wanted him, and brought him to the ScPA. The principle of having sectors is a good one, as the idea is to prevent any one refuge from becoming overloaded, but sometimes things just don’t work out as planned, so for the time being at least Vick is with us, and whatever happens he is in need of a new home! Vick will be happier as an only dog, and will need an owner who is prepared to give him the training and education he has missed out on so far. But as he is only 18 months old (he was born in March 2018) there is plenty of time to teach him everything he needs to know to become a good canine citizen. And Vick will be well worth the effort; he is a lovely boy and has loads of potential!

Bolide| A371

Bolide male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Bolide is the French word for racing car or meteor, so I am guessing that Bolide is quite a lively boy. We have seen many dogs who look like him at the refuge, nondescript shepherd crosses in a mixture of browns and greys. One thing they have all had in common is that they have almost without exception been wonderfully sociable dogs, with both other dogs and people. Perhaps if they are all distant relatives (many of them have arrived as strays) and they just share some amazing genes. But in any case, I have no doubt that Bolide will make a great companion for anyone looking for a friendly and fun dog. He was born in January 2018 and although he was very thin when he arrived, Bolide is looking better already and will be magnificent when he is back to his normal weight.

Nash| A361

Nash male German ShepherdMale, Young, Large

Nash is a very handsome German Shepherd who was born in April 2017. He was found and brought to the refuge at the beginning of July, and whereas he has not been mixed with other dogs yet, he has certainly made plenty of human friends. We know this breed is very popular, so despite the fact that we don’t know Nash very well, we decided to let you see him in the hope that you will want to come and meet him, or perhaps we can answer any questions you might have.

Stinka| A319

Stinka female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large

It is very sad to see Stinka back at the refuge; she was adopted on exactly the same day I adopted Caillou, in May 2017, and as we knew her family already, I don’t think anyone expected her to be returned to the refuge. However it turns out that she is a bit of a wanderer, and as the family’s garden is not enclosed, they have brought Stinka back for her own safety. Despite the horrid name (we initially called her Rose, but Stinka was her real name), she is a beautiful dog. A tall and elegant shepherd cross, Stinka was born in March 2016. She is fine with other dogs, and although an enclosed garden is a must, in all other respects, Stinka is perfect, really affectionate and so worthy of a wonderful home.

Mickey| T443

Mickey large young maleMale, Young, Large

Mickey is the third dog to remain from the 8 dogs who were left when their owner moved house. Like his brothers, Sammy and Levy, he was incredibly nervous upon arrival but has improved dramatically thanks to Vincent and the other employees. The only reason he has not had an album before now is due to having no decent photos. Mickey is a wiemeranar cross who was born in September 2017. He is a big, powerful dog, but adorable and very trusting of his human companions. Like his brothers he is not a good first dog, but for someone with a bit of dog-knowhow, he will be a gem.

Vegas| R530

Vegas young male crossMale, Young, Large

I am just putting Vegas on the site now, as we have had a bit of a check up and realised that there were several dogs missing. In Vegas’s case, this is because he was adopted and returned several weeks later, but had already been deleted from the website. Vegas a fabulous griffon-y coated dog, quite large and imposing, but very gentle and good on the lead. He is fine with other dogs, but does not like being left alone, and this is why he was brought back. While his owners were at work he did what we can best describe as a bit of interior decorating. So a family who is at home a lot is needed for this lovely boy. Vegas was born in January 2013 and is more than ready for a new home, having been at the refuge since November 2017.

Falbala| A137

Falbala female labrador crossFemale, Young, Large

Falbala is a stunning black labrador cross who was born in March 2018. Well, this is the vet’s estimate, as almost inevitably, she was not identified. What a gorgeous girl she is, though. She has completely stolen the heart of Isa, one of our volunteers who sadly has no room for a new dog at her home, but who will give Falbala regular walks until she finds a new home, I am sure. We have no idea as to Falbala’s past, but she is now sharing her kennel happily and will be sterilised, fully vaccinated and identified, none of which would have been the case had she not made it to the ScPA. She is a big girl but not too strong on the lead, and definitely worth meeting!

Levy| T449

LevyMale, Young, Medium

 

It is wonderful to be able to put Levy and Sammy on this site. They are two of seven dogs who were brought to the refuge one by one over the period of a month or so last summer. They had all been left in a garden when their owner basically just ran away from the mess he was responsible for. The dogs’ mother, Mattie was brought in with the “pups”, all of whom were one year old at the time and had never had any contact with humans. Mattie was well socialised and was adopted very quickly. The pups have been a lot harder work. Levy went for a walk last week and proved to have made huge progress. He walks well, although like all these dogs likes to hear a friendly voice as he walks. He is very affectionate and just needs a bit of guidance, but his desire to please means that he is very responsive. Yes, he and Levy are two hidden gems! Sammy was born in August 2017 and is a weimaraner cross.
