Bolide| A532

BolideMale, Young, Large

Oh, poor Bolide. He waited so long for his home and everything was going so well for him. The ScPA received countless photos of him in his new life, and his family was enchanted with him. Sadly they did not tell us that Bolide was having problems sharing with the family’s cat. Had they asked for help, then perhaps the problem could have been resolved (as has been the case with other dogs). However they just brought Bolide back one afternoon and so this young lad is looking for a home again. Bolide is a wonderful German Shepherd cross who was born in January 2018. And he has already spent more than 6 months at the refuge. Please help us find him a home!

Canelle| A498

Canelle young female malinoisFemale, Young, Large

Canelle is a dog who, together with beauceron cross Mabrouka, was brought to the refuge because her owners did not like her barking. As Canelle is a malinois it is quite likely that her barking came of frustration. Many people underestimate the need these dogs have for stimulation. They love to be occupied and are highly intelligent. It is not by accident that they are the chosen breed of firemen and police throughout much of Europe. Canelle has many of the breed’s traits. She can be a bit snappy towards other dogs, and will need an experienced owner. Canelle was born in February 2016, so is a young, active dog.

Idylle| A455

Idyll female bull dogFemale, Young, Large

Idylle is an American bulldog, and a magnificent creature! Contrary to what one might assume when looking at pictures of this girl, American bulldogs are not regarded by French law as being a dangerous breed, which means she can be adopted without the need for permits or additional insurance, so if you like a chunky lass, she might be of interest to you. So why is she at the refuge? Well very sadly for her owners, Idylle was unable to cohabit with their other dogs. They did not adopt Idylle as a puppy, (she was born in September 2013) and although they tried to integrate her into their pack, this was just not possible. Whereas most things can be worked through, this is not the case when every “incident” results in injury to either other dogs or the owners. So Idylle is looking for a home with no other animals or small children. She is a wonderful dog, superbly trained and really deserving of a new 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.

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.

Jax | T365

JaxMale, Young, Large


Jax was abandoned by his owners as they were out all day and, left to his own devices, Jax barked a lot. This annoyed the neighbours, and as there was no solution possible (ah-hem), Jax, a young brindle coloured beauceron, was brought in for rehoming. It is probably the best thing that could have happened to this dog. He has seen nothing of life, and is terrified of his own shadow. Even the noise of his food bowl terrifies him. Poor, poor dog. As yet we have not been able to find him a companion to share with, but we hope to do so soon, as dogs are much happier when they are not alone. And Jax has so much to learn, and this will be done far quicker once he is able to share his kennel. So for the moment Jax is a work in progress, but he is in the right place, as the staff will look after him well, have no fear. Jax was born in October 2016 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated.

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

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!
