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!

Moby|R226

Moby shepherd cross maleMale, Young, Large

Moby was brought to the SPA by his owner who can no longer keep him due to a house move. Not quite sure how this works, as most people would surely choose a house according to the size of their family, which includes dogs. However Moby is with us. We noticed immediately that he was in poor condition, but sadly his owner had not noticed and had in fact never taken him to a vet in his whole life! The SPA is busy trying to sort out this lad’s health issues, including a nasty skin irritation. Funny how a non-profit organisation takes better care of a dog than his real owners….Moby was born in June 2011, and is officially a husky cross. He deserves so much more from life than he has had so far.

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.

Felix|R222

Felix border collie older maleMale, Mature, Large

Felix was born in January 2007, meaning that at the time of his arrival at the SPA he was already over 10 years old. Now no one can tell us that this dog has not had a home all this time, so why is no one looking for him? He is a stunning lad who has no idea what he is doing at the SPA. Good on the lead, affectionate and, like all border collies, bright as a button, Felix is looking for a home where he can plenty of stimulation. No, he is not particularly scatty, like some borders, but he is not ready for retirement just yet! As an older dog, Felix’s adoption fees are just €80, which includes castration, vaccination and microchipping.

Nell|R214

Nell male shepherd cross puppyMale, Young, Large

Brother of Nappo, Nell is another of nine unwanted shepherd cross puppies who were brought to the SPA. He was born on Feb 1st 2017 and is distinct from his brother due to his black muzzle. A lovely cuddly boy, Nell is fine with everyone and everything and is looking for a wonderful home. His adoption fee is €150, plus he will need to be sterilised when he reaches 6 month of age. We have to stop the cycle of unwanted pups somehow. Oh, and yes, Mum has already been sterilised. Better late than never!

Nappo|R215

Nappo shepherd cross male puppyMale, Young, Large

Nappo is one of two puppies (Nell being the other) who were brought to the SPA by a woman who had accidentally let her dog give birth to 9 pups. Grrr! Luckily they are both very beautiful and should attract lots of attention, but it is a shame, as of course the other pups and young adults will inevitably be pushed to the back of the queue for adoptions. Nappo is a very fluffy shepherd cross who was born on February 1st. As with all our pups his adoption fee is €150 plus he will need to be sterilised when he reaches the age of 6 months.

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.

Joyce|R165

Joyce-young female dalmationFemale, Young, Large

I am surprised that we are even putting beautiful Joyce on this site. When she arrived with her sister, Jazzy, I was sure they would both leave immediately. Sadly this is not the case for Joyce, so let’s hope that a bit of extra publicity will give her the boost she needs. Bought as a puppy from a breeder, Joyce is a purebred dalmatian who was born in 2014. If you know the breed, you will know how much dalmatians hate being confined, and we would like to find a home for Joyce as soon as possible. She was born in June 2014 and although she is fine with children (having spent her whole life with 4) is not good with other dogs or cats.

Paddington|R185

Paddington male German shepherdMale, Young, Large


Paddington is another dog who has been brought back to the SPA. This time it is because he does not like being left alone when his owner goes to work, and cries. Rather than solve this problem (perhaps by leaving him with a Kong or similar toy), she decided that he would feel less lonely at the SPA, where of course he is alone almost all the time. Paddington is a young German shepherd/chow chow cross who was born in January 2015. He is fine on the lead but as yet we have not been able to mix him with other dogs.

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
