Goliath | T428

Goliath male douge argentinMale, Young, Large



Goliath is a big and handsome dogue argentin who arrived at the ScPA having been found in a village about an hour’s drive from the refuge. Unable to contact the owner, the police brought Goliath to the refuge with his son (we assume) Samson. Goliath was particularly thin when he arrived, and both dogs were covered in fleas. They were immediately treated, of course, and regular (and good quality) food had turned them back into very handsome dogs. New homes required, methinks! Goliath was born in November 2011, and is a very affectionate dog, covering anyone he meets in big slobbery kisses. If that is your idea of heaven (and it is pretty close to heaven, I have to say!), then please get in touch!

Samson | T429

Samson young male Douge argentineMale, Young, Large


Samson arrived with a dog called Goliath, who we assume is his dad. That being the case, he is a dogue argentin cross and the vet estimates his date of birth as being August 2017. So not fully grown yet. Gulp! We know that lots of you like big dogs, though, and when they are as gentle as this lad, why not? To be honest stepping into the cage to take photos of these two was a bit nerve-wracking, as they are very big dogs. However it was almost death by licking; they are really affectionate and are desperate for human contact. They are getting plenty of that at the ScPA, of course, but both could do with new homes.

Balou | T395

Balou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Balou was brought in by one of the refuge’s growing number of cruelty inspectors. This medium sized pale brown dog was spending his life attached by a chain so that he was unable to run away. That is no life for a dog. However now he is at the refuge we understand a bit more why someone with an unenclosed garden would have trouble keeping this boy in. Boy is he a Houdini! He scales fences and can leap really high. So if your garden is not properly enclosed, you should probably forget about this lad. Balou was born in November 2014 and although we have not managed to mix him at the refuge, we are told that he is okay with other dogs.

Jax | T365

JaxMale, Young, Large


Jax was abandoned by his owners as they were out all day and, left to his own devices, Jax barked a lot. This annoyed the neighbours, and as there was no solution possible (ah-hem), Jax, a young brindle coloured beauceron, was brought in for rehoming. It is probably the best thing that could have happened to this dog. He has seen nothing of life, and is terrified of his own shadow. Even the noise of his food bowl terrifies him. Poor, poor dog. As yet we have not been able to find him a companion to share with, but we hope to do so soon, as dogs are much happier when they are not alone. And Jax has so much to learn, and this will be done far quicker once he is able to share his kennel. So for the moment Jax is a work in progress, but he is in the right place, as the staff will look after him well, have no fear. Jax was born in October 2016 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated.

Freddy | T286

FreddyMale, Young, Small

I am worried that Freddy is going to be one of those dogs who just slips through the net. Like Bridou (our last urgent appeal) and Némo, both of whom are still at the refuge, Freddy arrived at just the wrong time. He was not a puppy, but neither was he an adult. So he was too young to appeal to people looking for a puppy (and we have lots of pups), but people looking for a calmer older dog would not be interested in him, either. Freddy was born in January this year, and sadly it looks like he is doomed to grow up at the refuge. Having said that, Freddy is making the most of it. He is busy playing with his kennelmate and bouncing around as much as he can within the confines of kennel life. If you are after a young, lively dog, then please give Freddy a chance. He is desperate for love and will make a great family friend.

Prosper | T304

Prosper male fauve crossMale, Young, Medium

Oh, what a fabulous boy Prosper is. Lovers of the fauve breed will definitely like this boy. He is not a purebred fauve, but he has all the breed’s usual traits, apart from (we hope) the one that causes these dogs to follow their noses wherever they lead. Propser was found as a stray, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in June 2013, though, and as he arrived in good condition, he just must have had a home before. However no one is looking for him. Prosper is sharing her kennel with another male, and they get on fine. He is a very easygoing lad who would love another chance

Grisou | T285

Grisou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Grisou arrived along with Annick, having been given up for rehoming by their owner who had too many dogs. The owner was not able to adequately socialise his pack, and we saw this from Grisou’s behaviour when he first arrived. He was extremely timid and very difficult to approach. He showed no sign of aggression, he was just unused to being touched. The refuge staff and volunteers are working hard with him, however, and he is making good progress. And being such a pretty young dog, we hope that he will soon be adopted, and of course once out of the refuge, he will make far quicker progress. Grisou is a speckled black and white crossbreed who is medium sized. He was born in June 2016.

Baxter | T278

Baxter large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Baxter was brought to the SCPA by a father and his daughter who claimed to have found him and kept him for a week before realising that a big dog like this was not suited to apartment living. Yeah, right. So when they said “found” they meant found on the internet, I guess. Still, there is no other option than to find this big boy a new home. Yes, Baxter is a big dog. Well, only 40kg or so, but as he is full of enthusiasm, it makes him quite a handful. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, sharing his kennel quite happily, and we know from his former “not-family” that he is fine with children, but he will need strong handling. Baxter is a stocky short haired cross who was born in January 2017.

Andy | T323

AndyMale, Young, Large

Andy is at the ScPA due to his owner’s being in hospital. It is always sad when dogs arrive like this; they are still very much loved, but health issues have forced a separation. Andy is still a very young dog, so with any luck he can find a new home soon and have a fresh start with someone who loves him just as much. He is a magnificent lad, a big shepherd cross, probably with some husky. He really is stunning. Andy is fine with other dogs, and although he would probably act as a good burglar deterrent, that is due to his imposing size, rather than his gentle nature. Andy was born in April 2015 and is castrated, 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.
