Griff | R481

Griff young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Grif is the third of the three dogs who was brought to the SPA at the age of two having spent their lives hitherto in a garage as their owner did not want them when they were born. Grif is making slower progress than his siblings, but he too is just about ready for a new home, where, of course, progress will be even quicker. Griff is a bit more griffon-like than his siblings, mainly white and with a lovely wiry beard. He was born in October 2015 and would like a home with another dog and kind, patient owners, please.

Panda | R482

Panda labrador collie crossMale, Young, Medium

Panda is one of three dogs who were abandoned at the SPA together in mid October by a man who had allowed his dog to have an unwanted litter. Instead of letting the puppies find homes, however, he had kept them in his garage until the age of two years. So when these dogs arrived at the refuge they were not at all well socialised. Thankfully the staff and volunteers have been working hard with them, and Panda is ready for his new home. He is a lovely boy, probably a lab collie cross. He is very calm and gentle, and after an initial panic when the lead is put on, he is fabulous on walks. He is still learning the ropes, though, so a patient home or one with another dog is preferred.

Titou | R602

Titou young malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Have you ever wanted a malinois, but found them too tall and a bit too lively? Here is your answer….a dog who looks like a malinois but is the height of a corgi, and with a pretty chilled character. Titou was brought in to the SPA in December by his owner who lives in an appartment and no longer had time to walk Titou. What a shame, as he is a pleasure to walk. He is exceptionally well mannered, he doesn’t pull at all! Titou was born in November 2015, so is a very young dog, although one who is mature enough to have got over any puppy craziness. A great all-rounder!

Winnie | R592

Winnie large male cross breedMale, Young, Large

Winnie would be a great dog for anyone looking for a big young fluffy dog. We think he is a cross between a pyrenean mountain dog and a golden retriever, as he weighs 30 something kilos, with more to gain. He was born in February 2017, so even though he has finished growing upwards, some more outward expansion is almost guaranteed! Is this why he was abandoned? A car pulled up at the SPA just as the staff were arriving in mid December, and a man was seen shoving Winnie into one of the external kennels. When he was told to go to the reception, he did a tyre-squealing escape, leaving Winnie behind. Initially terrified, as soon as Winnie was able to leave the pound (which would have been immediately, had his owner filled in forms to abandon his dog), Winnie was just fine. He shared his kennel happily, and is great on the lead. He is a magnificent dog, quite calm and just waiting for a new home.

Duke | R581

Duke male brindle shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Duke is a young handsome shepherd who, like so many of our dogs, arrived with no identification and having been found lost in a nearby village. Despite his picture being published on Facebook and other sites, no one has come looking for him, and we suspect that he was adopted as a puppy free from an internet advert, and now that he has lost his puppy cuteness, he is no longer wanted. He is a great lad, though, and well worth getting to know! Duke is a dark brindle coloured shepherd cross who was born in December 2016, so is very young and keen to learn and be loved. He is fine with other dogs and has all the makings of a great family pet!

Muffin | R574

Muffin young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It breaks my heart to see Muffin back at the SPA. He was adopted when he was a tiny puppy and afterwards we received dozens of photos of him growing up and enjoying life. Who would have thought that about a year later he would be back at the SPA, over a year old and over a year more difficult to rehome. That is the effect that a divorce can have on a dog. Muffin is a stunning dog, luckily for him. He is fine with other dogs and we hope he will find a new home soon. He is a shepherd cross with slightly drooping jowls, making him look very distinguished. He deserves a lovely home, a bit like the one he thought he already had.

Orwell | R570

Orwell young male braque crossMale, Young, Medium

Orwell and Blair were found at the SPA gates one morning just after the last of the puppies was adopted. Did someone worry that we were short of young dogs at the SPA? Thanks but no. In any case, these two brothers are still very young (born in June 2016) and are still very puppy-like in their behaviour. Orwell is a braque cross (perhaps with a labrador) who has typical speckly black and white markings. He is playful but hasn’t got used to the lead yet, so a bit of work to do on this lad. The effort will be worth it, though, he is a lovely looking boy.

Babar | R546

Babar male beagle crossMale, Young, Medium

Babar arrived in a skeletal state and so spent a couple of weeks in the warmth of the infirmary whilst we fattened him up a bit. He looked very sad and pathetic. Until his first walk, that is, when he ran round and played with another dog so happily that we decided to leave him outside in a kennel, where he had company and could play to his heart’s content. As well as cuddle up to keep warm. In fact Babar is sharing with two other dogs, and they are all getting on wonderfully. Babar is a beagle cross who is a tiny bit timid at first, but soon gains confidence. He was born in January 2012 and is all ready for his new home!

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.

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
