Harley|PP18?

harleyMedium, Young, Male

Now this makes me really sad. Harley was one of a litter of four pups that were fostered by two volunteers when they arrived at the SPA in October 2014. One of them at least is having a wonderful life, as the foster family kept her. Of the other three, Harley was the one of whom we had no news, until out of the blue the family phoned to say they would be bringing him back as he was untrained. It is hard to know what to say in these instances. Who did they expect todo the training? They had not bothered! In any case, Harley, a medium sized shepherd cross is now back at the SPA, hoping that he will get another chance.

Été|PP187

Ete - male puppyMedium, Puppy, Male

As with his brother Printemps we expect Été to be adopted quickly, so if you are interested, don’t hang about! This little lad is mostly black and tan, but with some white patches too. He was born on February 20th, so he arrived at the SPA at 8 weeks; just the perfect age for a puppy! The vet reckons that he will be about 15kg when fully grown. As a puppy Été will be good with everyone; cats, dogs, children, although of course as with all puppies he will need to be educated in good dog citizenship.

Printemps|PP186

printemps black male puppyMedium, Puppy, Male

Puppies tend to be adopted quickly, but as we have so many at the moment, perhaps it is worth putting them on the site after all. Printemps is expected to be about 15kg when fully grown, and is a black cutie, with medium slightly curly hair. The vet estimates his date of birth as being February 20th, so you really are adopting a puppy at the perfect age! However before contacting either us or the SPA, make sure you are ready for a lifetime’s commitment. We do not want to see this or any of our puppies back, unless it is to visit.

Tonka|PP185

tonka female shepherd crossMedium, Young, Female

Remember Samoa? The lovely pale brown labrador cross who was offered for free on a local website but who ended up at the SPA, where she spent three weeks or so before being adopted in mid April? Well now sooner had she left us than what is surely her sister arrived. So if you missed out on Samoa, don’t worry, Tonka is here! She was born in mid-November and looks just like her sister; she has even gone to share a kennel with Samoa’s old pal!

Bouriquet|PP179

Bouriquet male cocker spaniel crossMedium, Mature, Male

Bouriquet was found tied up to the dustbins in a local village, and that just about sums up many people’s attitude to animals around here. Luckily he was found by someone who brought him to the SPA. He is identified, but our attempts to find his owners have so far failed. Bouriquet is a cocker spaniel cross who is fine with other dogs and is a lovely friendly lad. We have no idea why he was abandoned, but perhaps it is because he was in need of vet treatment for a minor injury. This he has now received, at the SPA’s expense, of course.

Misery|PP177

MiseryMedium, Young, Female

Never was a dog better named. Misery arrived nameless and unidentified with two enormous breast tumours, one of which had just burst and was clearly causing her a great deal of discomfort. Presumably whoever owned this dog had done nothing as the tumours increased in size, only dumping her at the SPA when things got so bad that they could no longer turn a blind eye. You note that they did not take her to the vet, of course….Misery has now had surgical intervention and will make a full recovery, and I am sure that she is very glad that she came to us. But now we want to find her a good home. In fact a very good home, to make up for her years of suffering. Misery is a blue de Gascogne who was born in April 2011, so she has her whole life ahead of her. She is a lovely girl and she deserves happiness!

Maddy|PP170

MaddyMedium, Young, Female

Maddy was taken in for the morning by great friends of the SPA, who tell us that she is an affectionate and loving girl, who is not good with other dogs (well, females, at least) or cats. However she does appear to have had an owner, as she is neither thin nor in bad condition. On seeing the photos some of you might be inclined to assume that she is a staffy and therefore in need of special permits. However she does not fall within the parameters for banned dogs, and hence can be adopted by anyone. Maddy is a brindle beauty.

Justin|PP157

Justin Brittany spanielMedium, Young, Male

Justin arrived at the end of March and was taken straight to the vet for a major operation on his leg. He now sports a metal plate, which has mended the bones shattered presumably by a car or other vehicle. Our vet has performed many similar operations and Justin is expected to make a full recovery, all the more so as he is only a year old (date of birth 30.03.15). Brittany spaniels are a very popular breed, adored for their love of the outdoors as well as for their suitability as family pets. Justin is a very handsome lad who will be tested with other dogs and cats just as soon as he is able to go out and enjoy the short regular walks that he needs while he is getting back to full strength.

Tao|PP162

Tao border collieMedium, Young, Male

Tao was brought to the SPA at the end of March and was taken to the vet immediately. He is one of the thinnest dogs we have seen, hardly able to stand on his own feet, and weighing just 8.8kg, less than half the weight of an adult border collie. Tao was taken home to be fostered by volunteer Isa, where he could receive the 6 small meals a day that the vet recommended (hard to do in a refuge environment). After a week Tao started putting on weight and will soon be back to a healthy size. His emaciation has caused no long term effects, luckily. Tao has just turned 4 years old, and although he is tolerating being with Isa’s three dogs, he would prefer to be an only dog. This is a dog who has been brought back from the brink of death, and we are looking for a very special family for him. If you think that is you, please get in touch.

Faro|PP

Faro mature male Blu de GasgoineMedium, Mature, Male

Faro is a fabulous looking griffon bleu de Gascogne, a breed that is well known as a hunter but also can make a great family pet. Faro was found and looked after by a family with both cats and dogs before being brought to the SPA, so we know that he is good with other animals, and also that he is house-trained. He was extremely thin when he arrived, however, and it will be some time till this boy is back to full strength. Unlike many of his fellow griffons, Faro is not nervy and is happy to be cuddled. He is already sharing his kennel and is a lovely lad who deserved a lovely home!
