Phoebe|P310

phoebeMedium, Young, Female

Another dog who has experienced far more than any dog of her age should have to is Phoebe. She has been chained up for weeks on end with limited access to food or water, and with owners who simply refused to relinquish ownership, despite intervention of the authorities. It has taken a concerted effort by SPA volunteers to persuade the owners to allow this young girl the chance of a better life, even though they clearly didn’t want her. At last Phoebe’s life can begin in earnest. She was born in March 2014 and will leave the SPA fully vaccinated, sterilised and identified. Twenty-four hours ago all of that would have seemed just a dream to her! Let’s make her life even better than it is at the SPA (remember, all things are relative!)

Lolita|P298

lolitaMedium, Puppy, Female

Puppy Lolita arrived very tired and scared, and it was horrible to think of her spending her time alone in a cage, even if it was to be in the relative calm and cool of the newly-extended cat house. Luckily for her, volunteer and dog trainer Shirley happened to be on site that day and offered to take Lolita home. Now any foster who loves dogs is a good foster as far as we are concerned, but having a foster family who will train as well as socialise a dog is just ideal! Anyone lucky enough to adopt Lolita will have the benefit of Shirley’s training plus, I would imagine, any follow up help required. Lolita is a shepherd cross with lovely colouring; pale with darker ears. She is a real cutie and will make a great family pet or friend for an existing dog (or cat!)

Flora|P297

floraMedium, Young, Female

Possibly another victim of the human summer exodus, Flora has found herself at the SPA at the age of 2 years (born in July 2013). She is another shepherd cross, though we all know that is a catch-all description for a mixed breed dog of medium size. However Flora is a bit special. She has longer hair than many of our “berger crosses” and this makes her look very pretty and feminine. Just as well she is not a boy! Actually she is a stunning dog, she is sharing her kennel with a male but may well be fine with females too. Flora is such a happy looking girl; we have no idea where she was before her arrival, but she appears to have been well loved and well looked after. Let’s find her a new home quickly before she realises that she will have to share the love of the staff and volunteers with 120 other dogs!

Prosper|P293

prosperMedium, Young, Male

Poor Prosper, back again. This is the third time this boy has been with us. The first time it was because he did not get on with the other dog of the family (although by all accounts he was fine in all other respects). The second time it was because he used to escape from the family’s unenclosed garden. And this time it was for exactly the same reason, which is bizarre, as the new adopters had of course been warned about Prosper’s Houdini tendencies. When you couple this with the fact that he was brought in with huge injuries to his neck (following use of a prong collar), you will realise that this lad has not had an easy life. But we never lose hope; the right home is out there somewhere, we just know. Prosper was born in March 2008; he is fully vaccinated, castrated, identified and all ready to go. This time it must be to his forever family; one with an enclosed garden and no cats. And probably to be safe no other dogs either, just in case (although Prosper shares his box just fine at the SPA)

Mimosa|P301

mimosaMedium, Young, Male

Mimosa is a young yellow lab cross who was born at the end of January 2015, so really he is still in his puppyhood. We have no idea why he is at the SPA, but the timing of his arrival could imply that his owners have gone on holiday and hadn’t realised that, rewarding as they are, dogs need to be looked after while their owners are away, or taken on holiday with the family. In any case, what this means is that Mimosa could find a much better family, and that is what the SPA is there for! Mimosa is sharing his kennel with another male and is absolutely fine with this arrangement. He would make a great first dog for a family or couple, or could join a family that already has pets. Should be an easy one to home, but who knows!

Popeye|P281

popeyeMedium, Young, Male

Popeye is another puppy who has arrived at the SPA due to people not sterilising their dogs and expecting someone else (i.e the SPA) to clear up after them. The vet estimates that he was born in early April 2015, and we would like Popeye to find a home as soon as possible so that he can continue to discover the world, which is what all puppies want to do! As he arrived alone, Popeye is spending quite a bit of time alone, although of course he does get plenty of love from the staff while they are working in the mornings. As soon as he has his second vaccination he will receive lots of love from the volunteers too; although a home is what this boy wants most of all!

Pepsi|P308

pepsiMedium, Young, Male

Pepsi arrived with brother Noah, and he is definitely the more outgoing of the two pups. He is the first to jump on your lap and will snuggle in for a cuddle easily, while Noah is a bit more reticent, needing the reassurance from his brother before making a move. Pepsi is mostly black and dark brown, but this may change as he gets older, whereas Noah is golden. Beautiful, both of them, and if I were in the market for a puppy (which I am not, sadly), I wouldn’t know which one to choose!

Noah|P309

noahMedium, Young, Male

Noah has just arrived with his brother Pepsi. Of the two pups he is slightly more timid and needs the reassurance given by his brother before he will come to the bars of the cage for a cuddle. The pups are about 3 months old, and we think they will be of medium size when they are adult, but certainly fine boned. Simply gorgeous, both of them. Noah is perhaps the more striking to look at (being golden rather than black), but Pepsi has a more outgoing character, for now at least!

Circee|P305

circeeMedium, Young, Female

The arrival of Circee is one of the events that puts us on the front end of dog rescue. Sometimes at the SPA you cannot help but see things that are upsetting, however the fact that the SPA is there means that the dogs are now safe and that for them life is about to get better. Circee was brought in with her two very young puppies (who have now gone into foster) and was in a very poor state. I suspect the strain of having to feed her two pups without any help was quite exhausting. In any case, she has done what she had to do; her pups are safe and now so is she. At the moment she is somewhat the worse for wear, and I suspect this was not her first litter. Circee is now recuperating at the SPA, sharing with another dog and getting regular food. She is a lucky girl, however her life will properly restart once she has a home of her own.

Kisscool|P290

kisscoolMedium, Young, Male

Kisscool looks like many other dogs who are brought to the SPA having been found straying. He has been identified by the vet as a shepherd cross, which seems to be the default position for dogs of mixed breed. He is a lovely boy, fine with other dogs (he is already sharing with another male) and although at the time of writing he has not started his walking regime yet (not having had his 2nd vaccination), he looks to be lively, energetic boy. If you would like more information about this lad, please get in touch. Kisscool was born in July 2010, so he has undoubtedly had an owner before his arrival. A holiday casualty, perhaps?
