Buffy | A586

Buffy senior female labradorFemale, Mature, Medium

Buffy was found in one of the ScPA’s external boxes one morning. This is almost the worst way for a dog to arrive, as it means either that the dog has been found as a stray and the person who found him has no place to keep him overnight, or that the owner has not got the bottle to bring the dog in for rehoming. In Buffy’s case, the owner was going to hospital and “had no other solution”. Bringing her in during opening hours would have been better, but hey ho. Buffy is looking for a long term foster family. We have no illusions that anyone will adopt her. Buffy is old and has trouble walking. Moreover she is not good with dogs or cats (unusual for a labrador!). On the positive side she is very affectionate and totally house trained. All she wants is a warm home and a small yard to trot round in. She would be a loving and loyal companion, I am sure.

Gaspard | T647

Gaspard male German shepherdMale, Mature, Medium

Gaspard was brought to the refuge by the cruelty inspectors, who found this dog chained up and starving. Who would do that to a fabulous German shepherd? Gaspard is still in recovery inside the infirmary, although he goes outside for short walks most days. He is still very thin, so wolfs his food down a bit, and this is one reason why he is not mixable for the moment. We hope that he soon realises that food will be plentiful from now on, and that other dogs are not competition. Gaspard was born in February 2011 and would love a new home where he will be loved properly

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.

  • Friendly and affectionate if a bit unruly
  • Needs an experienced owner
  • Will make a lovely family pet
