Dyson| A110

DysonMale, Young, Medium


Dyson (what a great name for a dog!) is a Cursinu cross, which is a Corsican breed dating back to the 16th century and originally used to herd sheep. And he is a fabulous lad, too. Tall and with fabulous pale brindle markings. Dyson is at the refuge because his owner has unexpectedly become homeless and wants his dog to have a better life. And Dyson should have no problems finding a home, bearing in mind that he is good with other dogs, cats and children! He was born in November 2014 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated. All he needs is a new home and he will be all set!

Pryce| A097

PryceMale, Young, Medium


Pryce is a big chunky lad with quite a bit of bull terrier in him. Unlike staffie crosses, this breed is not categorised in France, meaning that they do not require any special permits. This of course if good news for dogs like Pryce; he can be adopted just like any other dog. He was brought in as his owner has been hospitalised. Pryce has been well loved and well looked after all his life. He was born in November 2013 and has good basic obedience. He pulls quite a bit on the lead, but that is something we will work on at the refuge. Pryce is a really lovely boy and we would love to find him a home.

Prune| A089

PruneFemale, Young, Medium


Prune was adopted from the refuge several years ago but now needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. She is a lovely dog, used to children and other dogs, clean in the house and obedient. When her “welcome” photos were taken on her arrival, the leave was left on the floor, and she just sat calmly. Prune is a shepherd cross who was born in December 2012. Six years old, now, Prune is a calm and steady middle aged dog who will make a great companion for just about anyone.

Snappy| A085

Snappy male crossMale, Young, Medium


No, he doesn’t bite, so why “Snappy”? Well when Moira and I first went to meet him, he was so poor at taking treats that he kept missing them and clacking his teeth on empty air. Maybe being given treats is something new for him. What a handsome lad, though! A young Brittany spaniel who has just arrived, we will give you more information in due course.

Rusty| A086

Rusty male Fauve BretagneMale, Young, Medium


Although Moira and I have only met this boy briefly, I think we both know that he is going to be a DRC favourite. A medium sized fauve de Bretagne, Rusty is not at all scared of people, rather the reverse. Both Moira and I had our faces washed, in fact. At present Rusty is living inside, as he is painfully thin, but that is easily rectified. He is getting lots of love and care and we will make sure that continues after he leaves for his new life. As Rusty has only just arrived we don’t know his date of birth yet, but watch this space, or get in touch!

Kyklos | A057

Kykloslabrador crossMale, Young, Medium


Kyklos is another DRC favourite. He is a russet-brown coloured lab cross who was born in April 2018, so he is yet another “not-quite-pup” who finds himself at the SCPA, and for the life of me I cannot understand why. He is exuberant, but no more than you would expect of a dog of this age. He is perfectly well socialised, and was happy to share his box as soon as he left the pound. He is at that lovely play-fighting stage with other dogs, but knows exactly when to stop, so he has what we call the “codes!. Kyklos is a really great lad. Let’s get him out very soon!

Cheyenne | A007

Cheyenne young female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Cheyenne arrived as an unidentified stray, and so far has not realised that life has taken a turn for the worse. She is full of joy, leaping up to play with anyone who comes to see her, really adorably assuming that they are going to take her out ..or home with them, preferably. The vet estimates her age as some 4 years (born in January 2105), and she is in great condition. Sadly for her, Cheyenne is pretty nondescript, “just another” shepherd cross, with greyish brown markings. I have a feeling that this girl is pretty special, though. If you would like more information about Cheyenne, feel free to ask!

Jaffa | A012

jaffa shepherd cross maleMale, Young, Medium

I am reliably informed that Jaffa is at the refuge because his family have bought a pedigree dog and no longer want this crossbreed who has been their companion for the past 4 years. Yes, people really can be this cruel. Perhaps it is a sign of our consumerist society; there is no loyalty, just a constant striving to have the latest status symbol. It is so sad for Jaffa, who has no idea what he has done wrong. Because of course the answer is nothing. Jaffa is a shepherd cross who was born in September 2014. He is fine with other dogs, is fine with children and can be left alone with no difficulties. So a perfect dog. Except he is not a pedigree, of course. I think we have another hidden gem here, guys!

Meline | T667

Melie female young shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

It looks like Meline arrived at the refuge immediately after having had puppies, and she was in an extremely emaciated condition. Whoever dumped her at the SPA gates needs a good talking to, as they clearly have no idea about animal welfare. Or more likely they just don’t care. Meline is fabulous though, and although she is a bit baggy of breast at the moment, she is young and they will soon bounce back!

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
