Pador|R248

Male, Young, Small

Pador is a jagd terrier cross who was born in June 2016 and was brought to the SPA as a stray. Dogs of this breed are well known in France for their feisty characters, they are a bit like Jack Russells, in that they make both great pets as well as superb hunters of small game. It is on the former that we will concentrate, as we are not really fond of hunting as a rule! Pador is of small stature, some 12 kg, and he has wonderful rough fur.

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!

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.

Jango|R223

Jango male springer spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

One of our recent adopters was walking his new dog when he came across young Jango, who was clearly lost. So he brought him to the SPA, and at the same time gave us news of how well his own dog was doing! Jango is identified, but the owners details are not up to date, and we cannot track them down. Jango was born in January 2014 and is a springer spaniel cross. He is a great looking lad and we are sure that he will make a great pet for anyone who likes the great outdoors!

Duke|R217

Duke male newfoundland look alikeMale, Young, Medium

Duke looks like a Newfoundland, except for the size. Now this may be a good thing, as not everybody wants an enormous dog, but sadly for him the only people who have liked the look of him on Facebook wanted exactly that! Duke was straying for a long time in a local village before being brought to the SPA, but he does not seem to have been mistreated at all, and is a friendly young lad. Duke was born in January 2014, so no, there is no chance that he will grow any more!

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.

Tis|R194

Tis old male shepherd crossMale, Mature, Medium

Poor Tis. Due to his owner’s illness, this lovely elderly spaniel is at the SPA. We would really like him to find a home where he can spend his twilight years. Tis was born in May 2005, and it horrible to see a dog of his age in a kennel. Tis is just fabulous on the lead, and although he is happy to go as far as you like, he is also content to take a 5 minutes break where he just sits and looks round happily at the world. Tis is good with other dogs and children but not with cats. He is very friendly and affectionate and seems to be the perfect dog, other than being quite overweight. Please open your home to this lovely old gentleman. As a senior dog, his adoption fee is just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Whiskey|R184

Whiskey male labrador crossMale, Young, Medium


It is a shame to see Whiskey back at the SPA, as when a dog is adopted we don’t really want to see them again, apart from in happy photographs or on visits to say hello. On the face of it, Whiskey seems to be the perfect dog, and in fact his owners thought so, until they moved close to a school and found out that Whiskey does not like children. They have none of their own, so this had never been a problem. But passing kids kept putting their hands through the gate, and Whiskey made his displeasure at this invasion more than clear. By then, of course, it was too late, so it was back to the SPA for Whiskey. He looks like a very small (15kg) black labrador He was born in October 2010, and we are told that he is fine with cats, he does not chew and does not wander off. And we know for certain that he HATES the SPA, because he cries pitifully all the time. He misses his family, and would love to be part of yours.

Rex|R169

rex male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Rex was brought in by his owner as he felt he was too old to look after his dog properly. However Rex is in no way a difficult dog and although he would probably like more exercise than he was getting, he seems very happy with whatever life brings him. Rex is a seven year old brittany spaniel (date of birth April 2010) who has fabulous body language and who is wonderful with other dogs. He is not a “runner”, and like other dogs of his breed, is a great “all rounder”. Brittanies are very loving family pets as well as often being used for hunting. Rex would like a new family with a garden and maybe another dog to play with too.

Badou|R168

Badou male podenco crossMale, Young, Medium

Some of you may remember Badou. He arrived with a badly injured front leg and spent a long time recuperating at the SPA before being adopted. During this time we found him to be a wonderful sociable dog and his adopter found the same. His only “fault” was his fear of cars (understandable bearing in mind that he had been run over by one, and was found struggling to escape the other vehicles along the road). His adopter did not feel able to deal with this issue, and so Badou is back at the SPA. He is a young podenco cross who was born in January 2016. A fabulous dog who is great with children and dogs of both sexes but not with cats!
