Brad | LL235

bradMedium, Young, Male  

Wow, just look at this stunning dog! Brad is an Australian shepherd cross who was born in May 2010. He is absolutely fabulous but needs lots of activity and training. He is wonderful with people and will be the perfect dog for someone with an active lifestyle. This breed excels at things like agility and flyball, as they are hyper intelligent dogs. Brad was initially adopted from us then found and taken to a tiny refuge in the middle of nowhere. Volunteer Dominique went to collect him (any dog adopted from us will always have a home here) but even we with our incredible network of helpers, were unable to trace his owners. Brad is not good with other dogs as he is just too lively, but with time and patience (and training) that could change. Having said that, Brad was perfectly well behaved in Dominique’s car when she went to collect him, so he does have a calm side, he just needs to have more exercise than we at the SPA are able to give him.

Solea | LL260

soleaMedium, Young, Female  

Solea should not be at our refuge at all, as she was found by a tourist between the towns of Narbonne and Montpelier, both of which have pounds of their own. And if her owners are looking for their dog, it is there that they will be looking, not at the SPA Carcassonne. Of course we have informed both refuges that she is with us and sent photos, as well as put her photo on as many websites as we can think of, but I suspect that it will be in vain. Solea is black and tan shepherd cross who was born in June 2013, so she is just a youngster with her whole life ahead of her. She is fine with other dogs and will be sterilised before leaving, as is the case with all our female dogs.

Coffee | LL256

coffeeMedium, Young, Male  

Coffee had only just been removed from this site following his adoption when he was back with us. No fault of his own, and it is heart breaking to see this young dog back behind bars. His recent adopter left the refuge in tears. Despite visiting the refuge twice with his dog to test compatibility, the older dog simply would not accept Coffee into his home. This is not the first time that a perfect match proves not to be so (Prosper came back for the same reason, although in his case HE was the one at fault). Coffee is a young gentle dog. He is adorable on the lead and great with other dogs, though not cats. Definitely not dominant, but a bit of a wanderer, so you will need a fenced garden. Coffee has incredibly soft fur. He was born in April 2013, so is a very young dog. He is a shepherd cross who is grey and tan, so rather wolf-like in his colouring, but certainly not in his demeanour. A real gem!

Quirk | LL251

Medium, Young, Male  

 

quirkQuirk arrived with his pal Quincy, both from Quillan (all the Qs), having been mistreated by their owner. At first he looked terrified, it was hard to get a leash onto him, but a few kind words and he responded. When he was in his kennel I sat for a while with him and Quincy (along with employee Melanie), making sure the dogs were okay and that they knew they were safe. And it was here that I saw the true character of this dog. I sat on the steps (our kennels are quite big) and he sat by my side, pressing himself against me, looking at me devotedly. This is a dog who has been hurt, but who is ready to love again. Had I now already been the owner of 4 dogs and walker of an additional one, I would have taken him straight home with me (whilst accepting the pound delay, of course. Although in mistreatment cases the owners are less likely to contact us for obvious reasons (ie we are prosecuting them).

Zephyr | LL248

Medium, Young, Male  

 

zephyrZephyr is typical of many dogs that are brought to the SPA. Bit non-descript, and you would have to perhaps look beyond skin deep if you are at the SPA searching for a dog. He was found by a family that has children, and we know that he passed that test with flying colours. We also know that he is good with other dogs, as he is sharing his kennel with another male. Zephyr was born in October 2013, so he is just a baby really, and I do wonder if he has just got bigger or harder to handle than the family expected. Or perhaps he was a Christmas puppy who has lost his cuteness. In any case, this fine looking lad is affectionate and eager to please and would love a new home.

Dali | LL246

Medium, Young, Female  

daliDali was abandoned following the death of her owner. Originally she was taken in by a well-meaning neighbour and all would have been perfect. Except Dali is not good with cats. And I mean REALLY not good. No point even trying. If you don’t have cats, though, she is a great dog. She is fine with other canines (sharing her box with a very lively male) and is affectionate and with basic education. Dali was born in June 2010 and is a slightly hairy shepherd cross of medium size.

Valyne | LL243

Medium, Young, Female  

valyneValyne was found and brought to the refuge at the beginning of June. She is a young dog, born in December 2012 and good with other dogs. She is already sharing her box with a castrated male, and once her “pound time” is over, she will be sterilised (as is the case with all our females). Valyne is noted as being a shepherd cross, but I am sure there is something special about her. Her brown and cream markings make her very distinctive. She is lively and affectionate and will make a good family pet. She is not too big and is of relatively fine build, so looks pretty and feminine. A very attractive dog, in my opinion!

Cola | LL216

colaMedium, Young, Female  

Oh, what can I say about Cola? She is a tough looking dog; if you saw a photo of her with no background reference points you could almost think that she is a tough Rottweiler sized dog. Get her next to a car wheel or a human being and you realise that she is just a small thing. Cola was born in May 2012 so will not do any more growing. I just love how she looks, with her snub nose and black and tan colouring. Such a gorgeous girl and so affectionate. Cola is fine with other dogs and is sharing her kennel with a big male.

Carpet | LL238

carpetMedium, Young, Male  

This lovely tricoloured beagle was found dodging between cars on the ring road by Carole, the SPA secretary, as she tried to make it home one night. She was the only person who stopped to help, and in fact other motorists passing seemed to think that the dog was hers, and had jumped out of her car window! Carpet was not identified, so he came to the refuge, but our hope was that he would be reclaimed, as he appeared to be in good condition and is very sociable. However the ten days pound time came and went, and no one came looking for their dog. Carpet was born in June 2008, he is fine with other dogs and would love to get back to the family life that he was probably used to before being lost.

Aida | LL221

AidaMedium, Mature, Female  

This lovely dog was brought in with her 8 week old pup on a terrible day which saw the arrival on the same day of nine dogs. At least Aida and her pup shared a kennel, which saved a bit of room. Of course Bambino, the puppy, was adopted immediately, leaving Aida alone. A five year old setter is not as attractive as a puppy to the majority of people. Poor Aida, she has not had an easy life, and it seems certain that this was not her first litter. Perhaps she was dumped with her pup now that her litter sizes have gone down (which happens with age). Five years is not even middle aged, however, and Aida has plenty of time to enjoy what is left of her life; she is a gentle soul who would be fine as an only dog or as a friend for an existing pet. The fact that she is black may be against her, but her gentle eyes may save her from spending too long at the SPA. Aida was born in May 2009 and is sterilised (now).
