Amy|R295

Female, Mature, Medium

Amy female chocolate lab/greyhound crossAmy was brought to the refuge by the police following the death of her owner. She had spent her whole life with one person and is now behind bars with her whole world turned upside down. Amy is a chocolate labrador cross (perhaps with a greyhound, she is quite slim). She was born in May 2008 and is a lovely gentle soul, who is well mannered on the lead.

Tis|R194

Tis old male shepherd crossMale, Mature, Medium

Poor Tis. Due to his owner’s illness, this lovely elderly spaniel is at the SPA. We would really like him to find a home where he can spend his twilight years. Tis was born in May 2005, and it horrible to see a dog of his age in a kennel. Tis is just fabulous on the lead, and although he is happy to go as far as you like, he is also content to take a 5 minutes break where he just sits and looks round happily at the world. Tis is good with other dogs and children but not with cats. He is very friendly and affectionate and seems to be the perfect dog, other than being quite overweight. Please open your home to this lovely old gentleman. As a senior dog, his adoption fee is just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Bullit|R104

BullitMale, Mature, Large

After leaving the refuge for what we hoped would be his forever home, poor Bullit is back. For one glorious moment, it was thought that he would be able to live with another dog, and his new owner made every effort, however it was not to be. We are looking for a fan of the German Shepherd to offer Bullit a home. He is a pedigree and is simply magnificent. However at ten years old, it won’t be easy for him to find a home. As yet Bullit has no health problems, and is an active dog who adores his walks. He would love an owner with no other animals and who can give him the love he deserves. We really do not want him to spend summer in the heat of the refuge.

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.

Aneth|PP122

AnethFemale, Mature, Medium

Aneth is a complicated dog and will be difficult to home, but that does not mean we should not try! Aneth is an anglo cross who has leischmaniasis, however it is well under control and she takes a tablet a day to keep the disease stabilised. That is not the major issue. This illness is usually enough to put people off, however despite this, Aneth has been adopted and brought back on two separate occasions for being a runner. And not just your average runner, either. Aneth will need a super-enclosed garden if she is to stay in one place. And she disappears on walks, too, so lead only for her. Not everyone’s ideal dog. However she is so adorable and affectionate that perhaps someone would be willing to give her a home. Aneth adores being outside, so if someone has an outside area in a well enclosed garden where she can sleep but have lots of cuddles too, that would probably be ideal. She was born in December 2009 and so although not the youngest of dogs, she is certainly one of the most active!

Balou|P111

balouLarge, Mature, Male

Balou arrived at the end of the hunting season, which makes me wonder if his hunting days are over and his owner does not want to feed him all through summer until the hunt season starts again. Balou is a griffon type, who was born in June 2006 (he arrived already identified). If you like black and tan dogs with floppy ears, this could be your boy!

Pato|P078

patoLarge, Mature, Male

Pato was adopted recently and brought back for no particular reason other than an apartment is not the right place for a dog of this size! Pato is a big dog, and despite his age (he was born in May 2004) he is very active. He is a fine looking boy, but he has a major problem. He HATES cars! My Bella will chase cars, but Pato will attack them, whether stationary or not. Not only that, he will bite through the tyres. Hmm. What sort of home would suit this dog? One with a garden in which no cars enter, for sure. And as for walking, it would have to be somewhere where no cars are likely to pass by, or he will lunge and probably take you with him. Not an easy dog to home! But he deserves his chance!
