Ninja | T231

Ninja young male malinoisMale, Young, Large

Ninja is a malinois cross who was found and brought to the SPA in April 2018. We often have dogs of this breed; they seem to be very popular with people due to their looks, but it is important to do research as to a breed’s characteristics, not just be attracted to their looks. The malinois is not an easy breed. The fact that they are often used by the police and fire services should give you a hint that they are active dogs who need lots of training and stimulation. Taking a dog on without knowing this is foolish to say the least. Ninja is looking for an active home, probably as the sole animal and without young children. Anyone filling these criteria will find themselves with a fabulously loyal and devoted dog.

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.

Ellios | T219

Ellios Brague FrancaiseMale, Mature, Large

Ellios’s owner contacted the SPA as soon as he knew that he was likely to enter full time care. Unlike many people, his first thought was for his devoted dog of nearly 9 years standing. No, the SPA was not his first choice, but once he had spoken to staff and found out the dangers of giving away dogs for free on the internet, he decided that rehoming Ellios via the SPA was the best thing. This lovely boy will now be able to find a new family who loves him for his gentle and loyal nature, and not because with his pedigree, he could be used to sire puppies. Elliot is a braque francais and although he was born in June 2009, he is in great health. He has been loved and looked after his entire life, and it is so sad that his owner needs to rehome him. Let’s get him a new family quickly, guys!

Gloubi | T203 (reserved)

GlubiFemale, Mature, Large

Gloubi is such a fabulous dog and must surely melt the heart of golden lab lovers everywhere. Who doesn’t remember a dog like this from their childhood? A lovely calm girl, Gloubi was found unidentified but clearly much loved and in great health, despite being a bit overweight. Regular walks at the SPA are already having the desired effect, though, and we will gradually get this girl back into shape. Gloubi was born in June 2010. She is fine with other dogs as well as cats and would make a lovely companion for anyone looking for a calm dog to share gentle walks and lazy days.

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.

Boxer | T155

BoxerMale, Young, Large 

Boxer is the name of this fabulous looking dog, who is clearly not a boxer at all! He is a big dog argentin cross, who we are reasonably sure is related to the recently adopted Iktus. Yes, he looks like a tough guy, but like Iktus he is a gentle giant, sharing his box happily with another male and loving his walks. Boxer was born in November 2016 and will make an impressive but sociable family member!

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.

Tex | T039

TexMale, Young, Large

Texas is a wonderful husky/ German shepherd cross who was rehomed thanks to the DRC home to home “service”. Sadly due to no fault of the dog, Texas finds himself at the SPA. This is especially sad as the whole logic is that such dogs avoid the dog ever being behind bars. Life can take unexpected turns and such was the case here. Texas is not happy at the SPA and we would like to find him a home as soon as possible.Texas was born in March 2014 and is fine with other dogs. He used to live with a cat, but since being rehomed has started chasing any stray moggies, so proceed with caution if you have cats. He walks beautifully on the lead. Texas will escape if he is left alone in an unfenced garden, but this is usually to seek out company, so will need and enclosed garden and lots of human presence.

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.
