Dart|RD2

Dart - mature male DalmationMale, Mature, Large

What a shame to see a beautiful dalmatian in a concrete kennel at the SPA. As many of you know, this breed is quite fragile and absolutely hate being locked up. And poor Dart is no youngster, either. He was born in September 2008, and has not had an easy life. He has spent many years living on the streets and when his owner finally found housing and a job, Dart could not cope with being left alone. So this lad needs a family who is at home a lot. He is big for his breed, wonderful on or off the lead and good with female dogs, cats and children, but not male dogs. Dart can leave under our senior dog scheme; €80 for beautiful boy who is castrated, vaccinated and microchipped!

Flavien| PP451

Flavian beauceron bouvier bernois crossMale, Young, Large

Flavien was brought to the SPA by the police municipal in Esperaza, who found him straying. His owners recognised him thanks to Facebook and told us that they would collect him, but not if it meant spending any money. Well, of course we had no plans to charge them anything, but they needed to pay the vet to have their dog identified, and this they simply refused to do. Sadly we have no choice than to put Flavien up for adoption. He is a beauceron crossed with a bouvier bernois, and was born in October 2011. He is fine with dogs, cats and children. What a shame that a dog who appears to be perfect should be left at the SPA because his owners do not have the money to make him “legal”. Still, as he used to spend his days tied up, perhaps it is for the best.

Patty|PP298

Patty labrador cross femaleLarge, Young, Female

Patty was found with Sweety, and there seems to be no doubt that these dogs have spent a lot of time together even before they were found lost and alone on the Carcassonne ring road. They may well have been left there by people leaving on holiday, although as neither dog was identified, we will never know. Patty is a gorgeous deep black labrador cross. She is very affectionate and even though we know the chances of homing her together with Sweety are small, we hope that both dogs will find happiness again.Patty was born in July 2013.

Roxy|PP1196

roxyLarge, Young, Male

Roxy is a gorgeous mix of griffon and something like labrador, giving a stocky dog with a moustache! He was abandoned by his owners as they felt unable to commit to having such a large, active dog. What a shame they didn’t think of that before taking this dog on. Roxy is good with children and other dogs, but he does not like cats. He was born in January 2013.

Nougaro |P190

nougaroLarge, Young, Male

Nougaro was born in July 2013 and was brought into the SPA as a stray. He is a very handsome dog, with distinctive black and brown markings and a very sorrowful expression on his face. When he arrived we were hopeful that his owners would come and collect him, as he did not appear to be thin or neglected at all. But his pound time finished without anyone either phoning or coming to look for him. Of course he is not identified, so we have no way of contacting whoever has lost this lovely dog. Or maybe they did so deliberately? Who knows. In either case, Nougaro would love a new home with an active family.

Balou|P111

balouLarge, Mature, Male

Balou arrived at the end of the hunting season, which makes me wonder if his hunting days are over and his owner does not want to feed him all through summer until the hunt season starts again. Balou is a griffon type, who was born in June 2006 (he arrived already identified). If you like black and tan dogs with floppy ears, this could be your boy!

Pato|P078

patoLarge, Mature, Male

Pato was adopted recently and brought back for no particular reason other than an apartment is not the right place for a dog of this size! Pato is a big dog, and despite his age (he was born in May 2004) he is very active. He is a fine looking boy, but he has a major problem. He HATES cars! My Bella will chase cars, but Pato will attack them, whether stationary or not. Not only that, he will bite through the tyres. Hmm. What sort of home would suit this dog? One with a garden in which no cars enter, for sure. And as for walking, it would have to be somewhere where no cars are likely to pass by, or he will lunge and probably take you with him. Not an easy dog to home! But he deserves his chance!

Lazar| LL332

Lazar german shepherd crossLarge, Young, Male  

I was at the SPA when Lazar was brought in. His owner cried. Divorce had left him and hence his dog homeless and there was no prospect of a change in circumstance to allow him to keep his dog. Lazar was born in April 2013 and is a lovely German shepherd cross. He has had no training, but we are working on that. Lazar spends some time every afternoon in the office with dog trainer Carole, where he is learning his manners. He is getting used to people approaching him and is learning not to jump up to greet them. He is turning into a lovely dog, and I have a feeling that with relatively little work, he really will be man’s best friend.

Yuki| L589

YukiLarge, Young, Male  

When Yuki arrived he was terrified. He was put in an external box and spent a cold night alone. Gaining his confidence to coax him out was no easy feat, as he appeared to be aggressive. Now he knows us well and has realised that we are taking good care of him has really paid off. He has become a lovely dog. He is not great with other males, but where he excels is as a guard dog. Very few people would risk entering a garden against this boy’s will. Yuki would be a devoted companion and will adore his master.

Kopo | L682

kopoLarge, Mature, Male 

Before being abandoned at the SPA Kopo had spent his entire life guarding a wood yard with another dog. The wood yard shut down, so of course the best way to reward this dog for his 5 and a half years of loyal service was to bring him to the SPA. Kopo was born in July 2008, which for website purposes makes him an older dog, though of course he is barely middle aged for a labrador, which is what he is; mostly at least. He is only slightly off white and is very handsome, but at the moment at least is not very affectionate; probably cos he is just not used to all the friendly voices. I feel sorry for him, and I think his former owner should be ashamed. Animals are not just tools to be used until you no longer require them. Let’s hope someone shows Kopo how good life can be!
