Victoire| A288

Victoire female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

And we all cried Victory! Finally having this dog at the refuge is a huge relief. She has been living as a stray under the dubious protection of some of the villagers close to the refuge, who have insisted on leaving her to breed litter after litter of pups, only some of whom have made it to the safety of the refuge. When Victoire was finally caught, she had only one remaining puppy in tow, all the rest had died. So this girl has had a very difficult life up to now. She has never been touched, and although she is interested in humans, she is extremely timid. The vet estimates her age as four years old (born June 2015) so although she is a young dog, Victoire has missed out on four years of education and socialisation and love. She will need a kind, calm and patient family, preferably with another dog to guide her.

Olaf| A296

Olaf young male pointer crossMale, Young, Medium

Olaf is a young dog who was found and brought to the refuge in mid June, since which time he has made plenty of friends, both human and canine. He is a lovely lad, probably a pointer mix, who was born in January 2018, according to the vet’s estimate. Once it was clear that no one was coming to reclaim him, Olaf went straight in to share his kennel, and it is clear that he would be more than happy to share his life with another dog. Olaf is the kind of dog whom it is easy to overlook at the refuge, but he is really worth getting to know. Why not come and meet this lovely friendly young chap?

Nino| A293

Nino young male setterMale, Young, Medium


Nino is a former home to home dog who we were unable to place before his owner decided to bring him back to the refuge. To be honest this was a relief for all, as Nino was in the wrong family and everyone was unhappy; Nino included. It is hard for a young dog to spend his whole life in a garden without walks, regardless of the fact that his owner was at home all day. A young, active dog needs to see a bit of the world, so unsurprisingly Nino took himself off to explore! What a fabulous dog he is, though. A 6 year old setter (born in June 2013), Nino is fine with other dogs (in fact the ScPA is insisting that his new family has another dog), and very affectionate with everyone, particularly children.

Gaby| A300

Gaby female border collieFemale, Young, Medium


Like Roddy, Gabby has been brought to the refuge 5 years after her adoption due to a catastrophic change in their owner’s circumstances. She is a lovely border collie cross who is extremely affectionate and sticks to her owner like glue. No doubt coming back to the refuge is a huge shock for her, after five years of love. But let’s hope she finds a home soon. Gabby was born in June 2013. She is great on the lead, which is just as well, as she likes to play catch and is often reluctant to come home after a walk, although she is not a runner, per se. Gabby has had an operation for a leg fracture, which has left her with a very light limp. After careful introductions Gabby can live with cats. Being a border collie, Gabby is bright and intelligent, and she would love an active family.

Milo| A280

Milo young maleMale, Young, Medium

Now here is an unusual mix for you. No DNA test needed; Milo is a border collie French bouledogue cross who was brought in for rehoming in early June 2019 due to a change in family circumstance. He is a lovely smiley boy who is fine with other dogs and he adores children. He is housetrained and playful and with that breed mix, will be a great family pet. Milo was born in April 2018 and although I haven’t met Milo or seen how he is on the lead yet, but if you would like any more information on this boy, please get in touch.

Titou| A279

Titou male crossMale, Young, Medium

What a shame it was to see Titou back at the refuge. This young lad was adopted in April last year and sadly his owner has been taken into long term care and is unable to keep his dog. When his first owner brought him in, we were told that he was uncontrollable. However that is not what his most recent owner says. Titou is fine in the home, he is very well behaved, house-trained and calm. He is fine with other dogs and is affectionate and loves to play. The main problem facing Titou is his unusual physique, as he looks like a malinois corgi cross. Still, we all know that it is more important to have a well behaved and affectionate dog than one that conforms to the norms of beauty! Let’s find Titou a lovely home again! He is three years old ready to find love again.

Arizona| A276

Arizona female Fauve de BretagneFemale, Young, Medium

There is already quite a bit of interest in Arizona from fauve de Bretagne lovers both in France and the UK. Pictures of her when she arrived show the deep scarring left by a too-tight muzzle, and signs of cruelty like this pull the heart strings of anyone who loves dogs, and particularly this breed, known for their gentleness. Chances are that Arizona barked when she was a puppy, and this was a way of keeping her quiet. Isn’t that horrendous? She is not at all nervous of people and is young enough to bounce back, so we are sure she has a wonderful life ahead of her. Arizona was born in June 2017.

Bailey| A261

baileyMale, Young, Medium

What a great looking lad Bailey is. With one floppy ear and one erect one, he is quite a distinctive lad. Like so many of the dogs at the refuge, this border collie cross arrived with no identification. Initially very nervous, Bailey needs to be reassured by other dogs, and is gradually becoming more confident around people, too. He was born in July 2018, and one has to ask where he could have spent his life up to now, and more importantly, why is no one looking for him. A dog like this will make a stunning and attentive companion for anyone who has an active lifestyle and who is training minded. In the meantime Bailey is playing with other dogs and learning all about the world.

Kris| A259

Kris young male labrador crossMale, Young, Medium

Kris is the brother of Sofi and is the second of the two dogs whom I brought to the refuge having found them on my morning walk. We have no idea where these two dogs have spent their lives so far, as they appear to have no experience of the world. They are scared of the lead and everything they see is new. So essentially Kris is just a big puppy! Looking at the size of his feet he clearly has more growing to do, too. A lab cross (probably with some Groenendael), Kris, like his sister has wonderful body language and adores cuddles. He is fine with children, other dogs and cats. Sofi has found a home, and it would be great to know that Kris too, is happy. He is adorable, please come and meet him!

Alex| A242

Alex young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Alex is a fabulous long haired black shepherd cross dog who was born in December 2017. We have no idea why he is at the refuge; he arrived unidentified towards the end of May, and much to everyone’s surprise he was not reclaimed. Alex is good on the lead and is a very affectionate young dog, and there is no reason at all why he shouldn’t find a new home quickly. For anyone who likes black dogs (and how could you NOT like black dogs) and wants a young active dog to share their life with, Alex is a great choice.
