Nozete|R300

Nozete male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nozete is a very lucky boy. He escaped from a hunt kennel and thanks to a passer by was brought to the SPA by the police. They gave strict instructions to not return him to his owner, and seeing the condition of this dog, we can see why. Extremely thin and world weary, poor Nozete had 5 huge grass seeds removed from his ears and nose. All of them were deeply embedded and had obviously been causing him enormous pain for some time. Keeping dogs in kennels often means that their owners do not notice illnesses etc. But not feeding dogs either pushes this from neglect to mistreatment (which are two sides of the same coin). Nozete is a young lad, he was born in May 2012. Let’s make sure he has a wonderful life from now on.

Lili|R299

Lili female fauve de BretagneFemale, Young, Medium

Lili is a griffon Fauve de Bretagne who was abandoned at the SPA because her owner has a new girlfriend who does not like dogs. I wonder how long that relationship will last? Not as long as the love of a dog, that’s for sure! Lili was born in May 2015, and is a lovely girl. She is fine with children and dogs, however she does not like cats. Some dogs of this breed can be shy and nervous, but Lili is very outgoing and affectionate, and although she lived outside most of the time (sigh), she is used to being handled and loves people.

Amy|R295

Female, Mature, Medium

Amy female chocolate lab/greyhound crossAmy was brought to the refuge by the police following the death of her owner. She had spent her whole life with one person and is now behind bars with her whole world turned upside down. Amy is a chocolate labrador cross (perhaps with a greyhound, she is quite slim). She was born in May 2008 and is a lovely gentle soul, who is well mannered on the lead.

Billy|R288

 

Billy male tri-coloured retrieverMale, Young, Medium

Poor Billy. He is yet another dog who is at the SPA following the death of his owner. This time, however, Billy was left in his deceased owner’s garden for 6 months, while neighbours took it in turns to feed him. Finally they got fed up with this and one of them dumped him at the SPA gates one night. Nice, eh? They then phoned up to tell us that Billy is good with other dogs but not with cats. This has since been tested at the SPA, and lo and behold, Billy is fine with cats too! He went straight to the vet, who estimated his date of birth as being June 2012, then into a kennel to share happily with another dog. Billy is a fabulous tricoloured setter cross who is very well behaved. On a recent walk with volunteers his lead broke, but Billy stayed with his walkers and returned to the SPA. What a good boy!

Kelly|R274

Kelly female Brittany spanielFemale, Young, Medium

Some of you may recognise Kelly. She was brought to the SPA earlier this year when her owner decided he was too old to keep this young and active dog. Her next adopters had cats and although Kelly showed no aggression at all towards them, the cats were not spending as much time at home as before. So Kelly’s family decided to bring her back. No one had become fond enough of her to keep her, and as she, like all dogs, deserves love, perhaps ultimately this is the best thing. Kelly is pretty Brittany spaniel /setter cross who was born in November 2015.

Jango|R223

Jango male springer spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

One of our recent adopters was walking his new dog when he came across young Jango, who was clearly lost. So he brought him to the SPA, and at the same time gave us news of how well his own dog was doing! Jango is identified, but the owners details are not up to date, and we cannot track them down. Jango was born in January 2014 and is a springer spaniel cross. He is a great looking lad and we are sure that he will make a great pet for anyone who likes the great outdoors!

Tis|R194

Tis old male shepherd crossMale, Mature, Medium

Poor Tis. Due to his owner’s illness, this lovely elderly spaniel is at the SPA. We would really like him to find a home where he can spend his twilight years. Tis was born in May 2005, and it horrible to see a dog of his age in a kennel. Tis is just fabulous on the lead, and although he is happy to go as far as you like, he is also content to take a 5 minutes break where he just sits and looks round happily at the world. Tis is good with other dogs and children but not with cats. He is very friendly and affectionate and seems to be the perfect dog, other than being quite overweight. Please open your home to this lovely old gentleman. As a senior dog, his adoption fee is just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Whiskey|R184

Whiskey male labrador crossMale, Young, Medium


It is a shame to see Whiskey back at the SPA, as when a dog is adopted we don’t really want to see them again, apart from in happy photographs or on visits to say hello. On the face of it, Whiskey seems to be the perfect dog, and in fact his owners thought so, until they moved close to a school and found out that Whiskey does not like children. They have none of their own, so this had never been a problem. But passing kids kept putting their hands through the gate, and Whiskey made his displeasure at this invasion more than clear. By then, of course, it was too late, so it was back to the SPA for Whiskey. He looks like a very small (15kg) black labrador He was born in October 2010, and we are told that he is fine with cats, he does not chew and does not wander off. And we know for certain that he HATES the SPA, because he cries pitifully all the time. He misses his family, and would love to be part of yours.

Badou|R168

Badou male podenco crossMale, Young, Medium

Some of you may remember Badou. He arrived with a badly injured front leg and spent a long time recuperating at the SPA before being adopted. During this time we found him to be a wonderful sociable dog and his adopter found the same. His only “fault” was his fear of cars (understandable bearing in mind that he had been run over by one, and was found struggling to escape the other vehicles along the road). His adopter did not feel able to deal with this issue, and so Badou is back at the SPA. He is a young podenco cross who was born in January 2016. A fabulous dog who is great with children and dogs of both sexes but not with cats!

Kalou|R074

KalouMale, Young, Medium

Kalou arrived at the SPA the first time when he was just out of puppyhood as a mistreatment case and was adopted shortly afterwards. Sadly this adoption did not work out, and Kalou is back at the SPA. As with every failed adoption, we know much more about the dog than we did before. We now know that Kalou is not good with cats, and never will be, no matter how hard an owner may try to change his behaviour. However we also know that he is fine with female dogs and is very affectionate with humans. Since he has been back at the SPA, Kalou has proved to be fine on the lead and he is sharing his kennel with a female dog whom he adores. And he is such a handsome boy that we hope he will not have too long to wait before finding his new CAT FREE home. Kalou is a fine-boned long haired black shepherd who was born in December 2014.
