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?

Artigo|RD30

ArtigoMale, Young, Medium

What a wonderful looking dog! Hound lovers are bound to fall for this fabulous lad, who is just a year old. We have no idea why Artigo is at the SPA; he was found as a stray in mid January and no one has come to collect him. Like all our recent arrivals, Artigo is living alone, but once his pound time is up, we will mix him and find out more about him. For now all we know is that he is a blue de Gascogne who was born in January 2016, and as a scent hound, he will need an enclosed garden and probably an owner who is either extremely patient or prepared to keep their dog on a lead during walks!

Dart|RD2

Dart - mature male DalmationMale, Mature, Large

What a shame to see a beautiful dalmatian in a concrete kennel at the SPA. As many of you know, this breed is quite fragile and absolutely hate being locked up. And poor Dart is no youngster, either. He was born in September 2008, and has not had an easy life. He has spent many years living on the streets and when his owner finally found housing and a job, Dart could not cope with being left alone. So this lad needs a family who is at home a lot. He is big for his breed, wonderful on or off the lead and good with female dogs, cats and children, but not male dogs. Dart can leave under our senior dog scheme; €80 for beautiful boy who is castrated, vaccinated and microchipped!

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!

Tao|PP497

TaoMale, Young, Medium

Border collie Tao has not had the easiest of lives so far. He was brought to the SPA in summer in an emaciated state, so weak he could hardly stand. He was taken home by a volunteer who nurtured him until he was ready to be adopted. His new family loved him, but he kept herding their children and the nipping was a problem. We tried to keep him out of the SPA by finding him another foster, but that did not work out and Tao is now in a kennel. Understandably he has lost a lot of confidence, and we are looking for a family without other dogs. Tao is okay with other dogs, but he is so affectionate that he needs a lot of attention and for now it is best if he doesn’t have to share his master’s love. He is beautifully trained and was born in April 2014. He is vaccinated, castrated and identified.

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.

Caillou | PP309

CaillouCaillou is an incredible dog and is without doubt my favourite dog at the SPA. He arrived in July 2016 aged 6 months and  for several weeks after his arrival he hid in the back of his kennel. We later found out he had been beaten with a shovel on a regular basis; no surprise that he did not trust people. With patience and love he has come out of his shell and has turned into a happy lad, who is buy soaking up everything around him. New things scare him, but he is getting better all the time. I take him to dog school every week, where he is fine with other dogs and loves to play. He walks off the lead, has good obedience skills and is quick to learn. He plays “fetch” (which he mastered in 10 minutes) and would probably excel at agility. Caillou is looking for a training minded family with plenty of love. In return he will be the best dog ever!
