Barney | T262

Barney male young labrador crossMale, Young, Medium

Barney was brought to the ScPA by the police in Limoux who found this young lad straying. We were immediately contacted by someone who recognised the dog as being the companion of a homeless man who lives in the region. Now often homeless people are fabulous owners and adore their dogs. However we all know that life can change very quickly. Offers of lodgings often preclude dog ownership for example. We have no idea why Barney has not been reclaimed. As the dog of a homeless person, however, he will have a great cv. Dogs who live this kind of life are generally very calm and gentle; they are used to socialising with other people and dogs, and generally walk well without a lead. If Barney turns out to be typical, he will make a wonderful family pet. And at just a year old, this labrador cross has his whole life ahead of him.

Diesel | T261

Diesel pyrenean mountain crossMale, Young, Large

Diesel was brought in by a volunteer who saw him hanging around with the other dogs at the hospital. Unusually, Diesel was identified, so it should have been a simple case of reuniting him with his owner. However….It turns out that his owner had given him away to someone else. As the legal owner, though, he has responsibilities to his dog, so he came to the refuge to discuss Diesel. He got the dog for free from the internet, and has no idea why he did so. He refuses to castrate his dog, who wanders off to seek out female company, and to be honest he doesn’t seem to know much about Diesel at all. So that is another one for the ScPA to rehome. I doubt that it will take long, though. Diesel is stunning and is fine with other dogs and children. We haven’t tested him with cats, but can do so on request. A pyrenean mountain cross, Diesel was born in April 2016, and needless to say he will leave the ScPA castrated, as well as vaccinated and identified.

Google | T257

Google male setter crossMale, Young, Medium

Google is a wonderful setter/border collie cross who was brought to the ScPA for rehoming by his family due to illness. Theirs, not the dog’s, I should add. Google was born in September 2014 and is a stunning lad. He is a bit reactie to male dogs, but fine with female dogs and cats. He is fine on the lead and is a very attentive dog, keen to learn and keen to please. As with all dogs adopted from the ScPA, Google is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

Stewart | T254

Stewart small male terrierMale, Young, Small

Stewart is the most gorgeous little wire -haired fox terrier imaginable. He was found in a nearby village looking a bit sorry for himself, limping badly and very thin. He is in safe hands now, however, and the ScPA will soon have him back to full strength. He has a sprained foot, but otherwise all is well, luckily for him. And unusually for a dog of this breed, Stewart is fine with other dogs and cats (he spent some time in the cat house while he was recuperating). He loves being held and seems to be very used to humans, so it doesn’t look as if he was a hunt dog. If you like this breed but are not so keen on the feisty side of their nature, Stewart could be the one for you. He was born in January 2012 and is ready for his new home!

Nemo | T250

Nemo young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nemo is the kind of dog who, unless he is very lucky, risks spending a long time at the ScPA. Not because there is anything wrong with him; far from it. He is just black and fairly non-descript. A horrid thing to say, perhaps. But the reality is that when people tour a refuge that has about 90 dogs in residence, it is hard to appreciate the ones who have nothing particular to attract attention. But Nemo is well worth a second glance. For a start he is just a baby; he was born in November 2017. Plus he is wonderful with other dogs and fine on the lead. We have no idea as to why he is at the refuge; he arrived unidentified in mid May. Unsurprisingly he is a bit perturbed by his new surroundings, but he is settling in. However we would love him to find a home soon so that life behind bars is soon a distant memory.

Ninja | T231

Ninja young male malinoisMale, Young, Large

Ninja is a malinois cross who was found and brought to the SPA in April 2018. We often have dogs of this breed; they seem to be very popular with people due to their looks, but it is important to do research as to a breed’s characteristics, not just be attracted to their looks. The malinois is not an easy breed. The fact that they are often used by the police and fire services should give you a hint that they are active dogs who need lots of training and stimulation. Taking a dog on without knowing this is foolish to say the least. Ninja is looking for an active home, probably as the sole animal and without young children. Anyone filling these criteria will find themselves with a fabulously loyal and devoted dog.

Falcor | T242

Falcor young male setterMale, Young, Medium

When Falcor was brought to the SPA for rehoming last week, staff took one look at his eyes and said “Uh-ho”. Because yes, those “goggles” do look very much as if Falcor has leishmaniasis. However not so; he is fine. Already a week later and he was looking much better. The trouble was caused by fleas, with which this lovely boy was infested. Nice owners, eh? Yes, Falcor deserves so much better. He is a fabulous setter who was born in May 2012. And he is fine with other dogs, cats and children! So if you are looking for an easy going family dog, he could be the one for you. He is fully vaccinated, castrated and identified by microchip and is waiting for his new home!

Gus | T243

Gus male Brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Gus was brought to the SPA by his owner, who had just had a minor stroke and no longer feels capable of walking his dog. “Get a dog walker”, we hear you cry. Yes, we thought the same thing, but that is just not how things work round here. Gus is a lovely Brittany Spaniel who was born in October 2011 and who has been in the same home all his life. Apparently he is an excellent hunter, but of course most dogs of this breed are. As well as being excellent family pets. Poor Gus has not had the chance to see much of the world, however; his owner does not know if he is good with other dogs, cats or children. So we need to learn all about him. If you like the look of Gus, though, please feel free to come along and meet him or give us a nudge and we can tell you more!

Neiko | T223

Neiko young male crossMale, Young, Large

Neiko was found wandering on the road by a volunteer and brought to the SPA. Apparently he was often seen straying, and whereas he may well have found his way home, no one has come to reclaim, so it seems he was yet another unwanted dog who was left to lead his own life. Neiko was born in September 2017. Little more than a puppy, in actual fact. Neiko is very energetic and loves playing with other dogs. He has had no education at all, so walking him is not easy, but of course at the SPA he is learning fast. Neiko would love a family where he can have more attention and learn even more quickly.

Bridou | T227

Bridou young male crossMale, Young, Large

Bridou is just a big bouncy puppy and that is surely why he is at the SPA. As so often happens, he was brought in by a woman who claimed to have found him. However it was clear that he was her dog, presumably picked up for free on leboncoin or another such internet site. She said that Bridou had jumped up and taken a sausage from her young daughter’s hand, which is why she couldn’t keep him. Hmmm, talk about mixing up your stories. In any case, Bridou needs a new home, and the sooner the better. No point leaving him with a family who are not at all dog people! Bridou was born in January 2018 and is clearly going to a big lad. He is fine with other dogs, but will need some training as he grows up, otherwise he could just become a big, out of control dog. If you think you could offer Bridou a home, please get in touch.
