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 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.

Spike| R484

SpikeMale, Large, Young

Spike is a wonderful dog in all senses of the word, and a new DRC favourite. Imagine a large dog who looks quite fierce, but who is in fact a big cuddly bear. That is Spike in a nutshell. He is a young dog, born in March 2016, and has been wonderfully well trained. He walks to heel (in fact he will walk along with his muzzle in the palm of your hand), and is full of joy. However he is nervous of new situations, perhaps hinting at a difficult past. A handsome dog, good with other dogs and children, Spike will make a great family pet for someone with lots of love and a bit of patience at first.

  • Friendly
  • Obedient
  • Lovel gentle giant

Indian| PP562

Indian female Czech Wolf DogFemale, Large, Mature

Indian is the second of the Czech wolfdogs at the SPA. She came from a man who rescues this breed but who had become overwhelmed with numbers, and the SPA stepped in to help. Indian is the mate of Artos, and would prefer to be homed with him and without other dogs if possible. She is about the size of a German shepherd, and timid with people who she does not know. Once she knows someone she will happily lick and nuzzle them, and shows lots of affection. She is not good with dogs other than Artos and cannot be homed with children. Indian was born in September 2013.

  • Timid with people not good with children
  • Mate of Artos or homed alone
  • Magnificent looking dog

Artos| PP563

Artos male Czech wolf dogMale, Large, Mature

It was only after the recent DRC photo shoot that I realised that Artos was not on our website, although he has been at the SPA since December last year! Taken in by the SPA by a rescuer who had bitten off more than he could chew, Artos is a czech wolfdog. If you don’t know this breed, it is worth doing some research, as they are quite particular! Artos is a big male, fabulous to look at and fabulous on the lead. He is good with some females, but does not like males, even of his own breed (yes, he is the Alpha dog). He is very affectionate with people, but we would not advise that he be homed with small children (although he can meet them on walks without any problems). Artos is magnificent and everyone feels a surge of pride whilst walking him. He as born in December 2010.

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with some female dogs
  • Magnificent looking dog

Baxter| R468

BaxterMale, Large, Young

Baxter is a pale shepherd who arrived at the SPA unidentified in October. He is about the size of a German shepherd, with medium long fur. And he is friendly and lively. The later is not surprising bearing in mind that the vet has estimated his age as being one year. Although he is mostly cream coloured, Baxter’s distinguishing feature is the yellow fur around his eyes. We haven’t tested Baxter with other dogs at the time of going to press, but by the time you read this we will know how he is with other dogs, and of course he can be tested with cats too. He is a great looking boy who will make a lovely pet.

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Great looking
  • Will make a lovely family pet

Lili | R357

Lili female black shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large


Lili was adopted from the SPA when she was a puppy and brought back recently as the owners no longer want a dog. Yes, this may seem impossible to you, but we have had three dogs brought in for this very reason just in the month of July! Lili is a fairly big stocky black female, she perhaps has some dogue in her, as her jowels are a bit droopy. Or maybe it is just her age! I know, I am not painting a glowing picture, am I. In fact she is adorable, and fine with cats and children, too. Who wouldn’t want to offer this lovely lass a home? Lili was born in June 2009, Shocking that after so long in a family she should find herself back at the SPA.

Diesel R304

DieselMale, Young, Large

Diesel should not really be at the SPA. He had an owner, but when Diesel was found straying in his village, they refused to collect him. We hate it when this happens, but perhaps the only way forward is to agree that perhaps the owner does not love his dog as much as he should. And Diesel is so worthy of love! He is a fabulous looking dark and pale shepherd/border collie cross who is very gentle and affectionate. His date of birth is estimated as being in November 2016, so although this boy is more or less fully grown, he is still a very young dog who will adapt quickly to his new home. He is good with other dogs, both male and female and his adoption fee is €170.

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.
