Darby | R329

Darby male Blue de JuraMale, Young, Medium

Darby has a long road ahead of him, and although the SPA is not the best place for him, it is clearly far far better than wherever he was before. Presumably this Blue de Jura has escaped (or been dumped) by a hunter; he is terrified of his own shadow, and as he is only a year old, we can probably not even imagine the life he had before arriving. For now this lad is being left mostly in peace, fed regularly and reassured by the presence of other dogs and the soothing tones of the staff and volunteers. We will be looking for a very special home for this lad, but as he is so beautiful, we are hoping that someone lovely might wish to take him on sooner rather than later.

Fax | R312

FaxMale, Young, Medium

Fax is the kind of dog who in many ways epitomises what the SPA is about. Found as a stray at the age of 18 months, Fax has clearly had no human contact at all; or at least not positive contact. He is absolutely terrified and will completely freeze whenever he is touched. He would rather just be left alone, as that way at least nothing bad can happen. This is really sad to see, and of course we are all doing our best to show him how wonderful life can be. Fax will walk on a lead, particularly if there is another dog nearby. In fact he will probably need a canine mentor in his new home in order to make any real progress. If you have a dog already and/or lots of patience, Fax will be a very rewarding friend.

Vegas | R309

VegasMale, Young, Large

Vegas is one of those dogs that really draws the eye. He has really unusual markings and whatever mix he is has really turned out well. The height of a German shepherd, but with a rough coat and more than a touch of griffon about him, Vegas had an owner until fairly recently. She brought him to the SPA claiming to have found him, however thanks to a local vet, who recognised the dog, we know the truth. I guess people will do anything they can to avoid taking responsibility for their actions. Vegas is good on the lead, good with people and an all round lovely boy. He was born in January 2013 and is ready for a new home with someone much nicer than his last owner!

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.

Nozete | R300

Nozete male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nozete is a very lucky boy. He escaped from a hunt kennel and thanks to a passer by was brought to the SPA by the police. They gave strict instructions to not return him to his owner, and seeing the condition of this dog, we can see why. Extremely thin and world weary, poor Nozete had 5 huge grass seeds removed from his ears and nose. All of them were deeply embedded and had obviously been causing him enormous pain for some time. Keeping dogs in kennels often means that their owners do not notice illnesses etc. But not feeding dogs either pushes this from neglect to mistreatment (which are two sides of the same coin). Nozete is a young lad, he was born in May 2012. Let’s make sure he has a wonderful life from now on.

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!

Louison | R271

Louison male beauceronMale, Young, Large

Louison is a big, impressive but adorable beauceron who was born in April 2011. He was brought to the SPA from a nearby village where he was found straying, so we know nothing of his history. It is natural to assume that a dog this magnificent will be reclaimed, however so far no one has come to look for Louison, so it is time for him to find a new home. Those of you who know about this breed will know that they fall into the herding/working dog category, however they make great family pets, too. And Louison, with his imposing stature and gentle nature, would make a lovely family pet.

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.
