Ernie| R316

Ernie male rottweiler crossMale, Medium, Young

Rottweiler cross Ernie was adopted but brought back in July. He really is not a dog for first-time owners, and that is what his last family was. Despite our advice (we advised them against the adoption, too) and their best intentions, this young couple were just not ready for a dog like Ernie. Born in January 2015, Ernie is still in need of education. Not the usual commands, he has mastered all of them. His difficulty is with authority. He needs a firm hand or he risks running rings round his owner. Not that he bites, he is just a bit unruly. If you like a chunky dog and are an experienced owner, Ernie could be the one for you.

  • Friendly and affectionate if a bit unruly
  • Needs an experienced owner
  • Will make a lovely family pet

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

Baxter| R468

BaxterMale, Large, Young

Baxter is a pale shepherd who arrived at the SPA unidentified in October. He is about the size of a German shepherd, with medium long fur. And he is friendly and lively. The later is not surprising bearing in mind that the vet has estimated his age as being one year. Although he is mostly cream coloured, Baxter’s distinguishing feature is the yellow fur around his eyes. We haven’t tested Baxter with other dogs at the time of going to press, but by the time you read this we will know how he is with other dogs, and of course he can be tested with cats too. He is a great looking boy who will make a lovely pet.

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Great looking
  • Will make a lovely family pet

Max | R264

Max shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Max is yet another dog who was brought in having been neglected, and another dog who is happy to be at the SPA! Sadly for him, Max looks like many of the other dogs at the SPA, a kind of miscellaneous shepherd cross. However like all our dogs, Max has that certain something that marks him out, and we definitely have several people who love his looks! In fact one of them got as far as taking him home to test with their cats, and Max was absolutely fine with them. Max was born in August 2016 and is a lovely friendly lad.

Kipnak | R371

Kipnik mature husky crossMale, Mature, Medium


Regular readers will know this boy. Several years at the SPA ended with an adoption less than a year ago, but the dream is over. What appeared to be the perfect family turned out not to be such, and so at 13 years old, Kipnak is back. He pulls on the lead slightly more than in the past, but is still an easy dog to walk, he is not quite as good with other dogs as he was before, but we will work on that. What he still is is a lovely husky cross who was born in January 2004 and who never deserved to be at the SPA in the first place, let alone come back a second time. As a senior dog Kipnak’s adoption fee is just €80 or why not ask us about fostering?

Diesel R304

DieselMale, Young, Large

Diesel should not really be at the SPA. He had an owner, but when Diesel was found straying in his village, they refused to collect him. We hate it when this happens, but perhaps the only way forward is to agree that perhaps the owner does not love his dog as much as he should. And Diesel is so worthy of love! He is a fabulous looking dark and pale shepherd/border collie cross who is very gentle and affectionate. His date of birth is estimated as being in November 2016, so although this boy is more or less fully grown, he is still a very young dog who will adapt quickly to his new home. He is good with other dogs, both male and female and his adoption fee is €170.

Billy | R288

 

Billy male tri-coloured retrieverMale, Young, Medium

Poor Billy. He is yet another dog who is at the SPA following the death of his owner. This time, however, Billy was left in his deceased owner’s garden for 6 months, while neighbours took it in turns to feed him. Finally they got fed up with this and one of them dumped him at the SPA gates one night. Nice, eh? They then phoned up to tell us that Billy is good with other dogs but not with cats. This has since been tested at the SPA, and lo and behold, Billy is fine with cats too! He went straight to the vet, who estimated his date of birth as being June 2012, then into a kennel to share happily with another dog. Billy is a fabulous tricoloured setter cross who is very well behaved. On a recent walk with volunteers his lead broke, but Billy stayed with his walkers and returned to the SPA. What a good boy!

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.  Hershey is fine 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!
