Twig | T391

Twig young male pointer crossMale, Young, Large

Twig was found by a British family who was holidaying in the area. As they had heard of the SPA Carcassonne they brought Twig to us, although the location where he was found is closer to Perpignan. This of course makes it harder for him to be found by anyone looking, but of course we are keeping an eye on lost dog announcements from the Perpignan area just in case. Twig is a lovely dog. He is probably a pointer cross, on the large side, but very gentle with humans, other dogs and CATS! Yes, Twig has been let off the lead in the cat house for a test, and he behaved impeccably, which has to be good news for him. He was born in September 2017 and is a wonderful young family friendly dog.

Balou | T395

Balou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Balou was brought in by one of the refuge’s growing number of cruelty inspectors. This medium sized pale brown dog was spending his life attached by a chain so that he was unable to run away. That is no life for a dog. However now he is at the refuge we understand a bit more why someone with an unenclosed garden would have trouble keeping this boy in. Boy is he a Houdini! He scales fences and can leap really high. So if your garden is not properly enclosed, you should probably forget about this lad. Balou was born in November 2014 and although we have not managed to mix him at the refuge, we are told that he is okay with other dogs.

Bounty | T401

Bounty setter pupMale, Young, Medium

With all the litters of pups arriving, it is sad to see a lone pup arrive and having to go into the pound alone. Bounty is a setter pup who was found at the gates one morning, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in May 2018, so really is a young lad, and we really don’t want him at the refuge any longer than necessary. Can you offer him a home? Setters are active dogs who love the outdoors, but here is a chance to adopt one at a young age so he can benefit from a lifetime of good care.

Enok | T411

EnokMale, Young, Medium

Enok is a lovely looking dog who was found by a refuge employee as she arrived one morning. Does he belong to someone nearby (who has so far failed to come to collect him) or was he dumped at the refuge gates at some stage and been straying since? We will probably never find out. When he first arrived he seemed so incredibly passive that we thought there might be something wrong with him, but he was given a clean bill of health by the vet. He soon started perking up, so maybe he was just exhausted after being without proper food and shelter. Enok is making great progress and is fine with other dogs. A really gentle soul. Enok was born in May 2017 and will leave the refuge fully vaccinated, castrated and microchipped.

Bobby | T290

Bobby fox terrier crossMale, Young, Small

We are hopeful that Bobby will find a home soon, especially after DRC’s enormous success in rehoming fox terrier Stuart recently. If you missed out on that little lad, Bobby is here for YOU! He was born in January 2012, making him six and a half years old. He is fine with other dogs, “megafine” with cats and fine with children. He is fine on the lead and is really affectionate. Bobby weighs under 15kg, and has a lovely smiley face and great body language. Come and meet him and let him wiggle his way into your heart! He would be fine as an only dog or as a friend to another dog, but he is so loving that we would prefer him to have lots of presence, be it canine or human. Or feline, actually, as some of Bobby’s favourite friends are cats!

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.

Marco | T349

Marco border crossMale, Young, Medium

Marco is a stunning white and black border collie / shepherd cross who was brought to the SCPA as a stray in early July. He is fine with other dogs, and is gentle and playful. The vet estimates his date of birth as being in July 2017, so he arrived at the refuge when he was one year old, and just at the start of the summer holidays. He was probably left to fend for himself deliberately. I just hope his former family does not get another puppy to replace him when they are back from their holiday. Marco would be a great friend for a family who like walking, as he is young and active. Why not come along and meet him; he is one of those dogs whose photos don’t do justice; he is magnificent!

Yoshi | T346

Yoshi young male berger crossMale, Young, Medium

We are not quite sure of Yoshi’s history, but we are sure that his future is going to be far better than his past. This gorgeous beige and white shepherd cross was found as a stray, but he had obviously spent most of his life tied up by the back legs. He had managed to escape and the marks to his legs are gradually disappearing. And incredibly this dog bears no ill will to mankind. He is a dream, affectionate and playful, and at under one year old (he was born in September 2017, according to the vet’s estimate), he has a long and happy life ahead of him.

Teddy | T331

TeddyMale, Young, Large

Teddy was found in a local village, and as he appeared to belong to one of the village’s many homeless people, we initially assumed that he would be reclaimed. He is such a calm, handsome lad and is very well socialised. However that was in June, and no one has come to collect him. Could it be the legal obligation to identify the dog that is the reason? Teddy was born in June 2016 and is an incredibly affectionate dog. He craves human company and is a dream to walk, as he doesn’t pull at all. He is fine with other dogs and is just like a big fluffy teddy bear. A wonderful sociable dog who will be a great family pet.

Freddy | T286

FreddyMale, Young, Small

I am worried that Freddy is going to be one of those dogs who just slips through the net. Like Bridou (our last urgent appeal) and Némo, both of whom are still at the refuge, Freddy arrived at just the wrong time. He was not a puppy, but neither was he an adult. So he was too young to appeal to people looking for a puppy (and we have lots of pups), but people looking for a calmer older dog would not be interested in him, either. Freddy was born in January this year, and sadly it looks like he is doomed to grow up at the refuge. Having said that, Freddy is making the most of it. He is busy playing with his kennelmate and bouncing around as much as he can within the confines of kennel life. If you are after a young, lively dog, then please give Freddy a chance. He is desperate for love and will make a great family friend.
