Jack|R071

Jack jagd terrierMale, Mature, Medium

If any of you remember lovely Rosie, who was at the SPA this time last year and now happily homed, you will have an idea of what Jack looks like. Jack is smaller than Rosie, but very similar to look at…kind of like a mini black labrador with a stumpy tail. Officially he is a jagd terrier cross, we know this as he arrived already identified. He was already castrated, too, but as he was put in the external boxes when the SPA was open, it seems likely that he was brought in by his owner. Jack was born in July 2008.

Fadista|R65

Fadista male large shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Again, it was sad to see Fadista back at the SPA. He was adopted recently after arriving last summer weighing in at less than half of his normal body weight. The SPA brought him back to health and he is a magnificent beast. The problem with this being that lots of people are scared of dogs of this size, and such was the case with the people in the village where his adopter lives. So in the interest of neighbourly relations, Fadista is back. He is a huge-headed cross breed (no permits required) who was born in August 2014. He is fine with other dogs and often has the run of the SPA when the gates are closed in the mornings. Everyone’s favourite gentle giant!

Tyson|R64

Tyson large white male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It is very sad to see Tyson back at the SPA. He was abandoned on February 8th, which by coincidence is exactly one year to the day since he was brought in last time. Tyson was adopted in July and the couple who took him were just not right for him. I would say he was not right for them, but that implies he was at fault, whereas this is more a case of young people taking bad advice. What kind of behaviourist tells an owner that the dog is “insane” and will never be happy inside a house? In any case, Tyson deserves better, so we will do better at finding him the right home next time. He is a big white shepherd who was born in February 2012. He is fabulous on the lead and is a total pleasure to walk. Although he shares his kennel at the SPA he tends to be a bit more exclusive out of the SPA, so perhaps he would be happier as an only dog.

Pollux|R60

Pollux male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Pollux spent the first year of his life attached on a very short chain. Until his owners moved house, leaving him behind, still attached to the chain! Luckily a neighbour spotted him and brought him to the SPA. So life is already tons better for this gentle griffon cross. But it will be even better still once he has a real home! Pollux was born in January 2016, so is a very young dog. Plenty of time ahead of him to forget his rough start, and to be honest although he has not had a nice life, he is nowhere near as timid as some of our griffons. This boy will be just fine!

Liquorice|R50

Liquorice young maleMale, Young, Medium

Liquorice was adopted immediately after his pound time ended so when he left we had not really got to know him very well. He has now been brought back as not being good with cats. He was tested when he was at the SPA, but at the time he was catatonic with fear, so did not react. We are not sure what happened in his new home, but the couple felt that the cat was in danger. Better safe than sorry! We are now working at the SPA with this lad, trying to increase his confidence. So for now he is one to watch, or maybe one for patient and experienced owners. Liquorice was born in January 2014 and is a very chunky black lab cross.

Calimero|R43

Camilero lemon setter maleMale, Young, Medium

As sometimes happens to our dogs before they arrive at the SPA, Calimero spent some time with a family. This is how we know that he is fine with dogs of both sexes, cats, children and (wait for it) parrots! Well, you never know! In any case, Calimero is a very sweet boy, a lemon setter cross whose date of birth is estimated as January 2013. He arrived very thin, and is definitely not a greedy boy, deferring to the dog with whom he shares his kennel. He is very gentle on the lead, not at all timid, just a bit worn down by the life that he has had so far. Soon all of that will be behind him, quicker still once he is in a new home!

Billy|R38

Billy border collieMale, Young, Medium

Billy is a wonderful looking border collie who is looking for a new home because he does not get on with the female dog of a family who tried to save him from coming to the SPA. On the other hand he was fine with their cats, and also fine with children, so he has a lot going for him. Plus he is house-trained, of course. Billy was born in January 2011, so is middle aged as border collies go. He is full of energy, but not as lively as younger dogs of his breed. Billy would like an active family, as like all border collies he needs to keep busy both mentally and physically. Who can offer this lovely boy a home?

Porto|PP129

PortoMale, Young, Small

By now you should all be aware of the dogs who arrived at the SPA following a case of dog-hoarding in the local village of Ste Eulalie. Several of the dogs have now been adopted, and Porto too, is ready for his new home. He is a small dog, 5 kg or so, still a bit timid, but gaining in confidence all the time. After a lot of work, Porto is now able to walk on a lead and allows people to stroke him, although he is still a bit nervous with people he does not know. Porto was born in March 2007 and and has been at the SPA since March 2016. It is time he left the SPA and had a family of his own. As a senior dog, Porto will benefit from a reduced adoption fee of just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and microchipped. And make no mistake, small dogs like this can live for a very long time!

Flavien| PP451

Flavian beauceron bouvier bernois crossMale, Young, Large

Flavien was brought to the SPA by the police municipal in Esperaza, who found him straying. His owners recognised him thanks to Facebook and told us that they would collect him, but not if it meant spending any money. Well, of course we had no plans to charge them anything, but they needed to pay the vet to have their dog identified, and this they simply refused to do. Sadly we have no choice than to put Flavien up for adoption. He is a beauceron crossed with a bouvier bernois, and was born in October 2011. He is fine with dogs, cats and children. What a shame that a dog who appears to be perfect should be left at the SPA because his owners do not have the money to make him “legal”. Still, as he used to spend his days tied up, perhaps it is for the best.

Nesquick| PP429

Nesquick  french spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Nesquick is a French spaniel cross who was brought to the SPA in late September. At the time of going to press he has not seen the vet, but he looks to be young and in good health. He is quite a stunner, too, and for people who like long walks and exercise, he will make a great dog.
