Polly | R607

Polly old female cross breedFemale, Mature, Medium

Polly was found in a nearby village and almost inevitably she is not identified. The vet estimates her date of birth as January 2009, making her nine years old. This puts her already into the senior dogs category, and we hope she will not have too long to wait before finding a new home. She is a shepherd cross with beautiful black and tan markings and gentle eyes. She is calm and affectionate would suit someone looking for a gentle older dog for love and companionship. Like all out senior dogs, Polly’s adoption fee is just €80, for which she will be vaccinated, identified and sterilised.

Griff | R481

Griff young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Grif is the third of the three dogs who was brought to the SPA at the age of two having spent their lives hitherto in a garage as their owner did not want them when they were born. Grif is making slower progress than his siblings, but he too is just about ready for a new home, where, of course, progress will be even quicker. Griff is a bit more griffon-like than his siblings, mainly white and with a lovely wiry beard. He was born in October 2015 and would like a home with another dog and kind, patient owners, please.

Panda | R482

Panda labrador collie crossMale, Young, Medium

Panda is one of three dogs who were abandoned at the SPA together in mid October by a man who had allowed his dog to have an unwanted litter. Instead of letting the puppies find homes, however, he had kept them in his garage until the age of two years. So when these dogs arrived at the refuge they were not at all well socialised. Thankfully the staff and volunteers have been working hard with them, and Panda is ready for his new home. He is a lovely boy, probably a lab collie cross. He is very calm and gentle, and after an initial panic when the lead is put on, he is fabulous on walks. He is still learning the ropes, though, so a patient home or one with another dog is preferred.

Titou | R602

Titou young malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Have you ever wanted a malinois, but found them too tall and a bit too lively? Here is your answer….a dog who looks like a malinois but is the height of a corgi, and with a pretty chilled character. Titou was brought in to the SPA in December by his owner who lives in an appartment and no longer had time to walk Titou. What a shame, as he is a pleasure to walk. He is exceptionally well mannered, he doesn’t pull at all! Titou was born in November 2015, so is a very young dog, although one who is mature enough to have got over any puppy craziness. A great all-rounder!

Duke | R581

Duke male brindle shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Duke is a young handsome shepherd who, like so many of our dogs, arrived with no identification and having been found lost in a nearby village. Despite his picture being published on Facebook and other sites, no one has come looking for him, and we suspect that he was adopted as a puppy free from an internet advert, and now that he has lost his puppy cuteness, he is no longer wanted. He is a great lad, though, and well worth getting to know! Duke is a dark brindle coloured shepherd cross who was born in December 2016, so is very young and keen to learn and be loved. He is fine with other dogs and has all the makings of a great family pet!

Blaire | R571

Blair young male braque crossMale, Young, Medium

Blair was found at the SPA gates with his brother Orwell. They are two lovely braque crosses, although Blair, with his handsome black coat and white chest, perhaps has more labrador looks than his brother. Both dogs will need some lead training, but are not at all snappy and at their age will learn quickly.

Orwell | R570

Orwell young male braque crossMale, Young, Medium

Orwell and Blair were found at the SPA gates one morning just after the last of the puppies was adopted. Did someone worry that we were short of young dogs at the SPA? Thanks but no. In any case, these two brothers are still very young (born in June 2016) and are still very puppy-like in their behaviour. Orwell is a braque cross (perhaps with a labrador) who has typical speckly black and white markings. He is playful but hasn’t got used to the lead yet, so a bit of work to do on this lad. The effort will be worth it, though, he is a lovely looking boy.

Brenda | R559

Brenda female griffon crossFemale, Young, Medium

If I know DRC followers as well as I think I do, Brenda will not have long to wait. This wonderful griffon cross was born in June 2016 and she is AMAZING. She is fine on the lead, very attentive to whomever is walking her. Yes, she is a griffon, so yes, she has her nose to the ground a lot, but she is easily distracted by cuddles. She doesn’t pull and she is great with other dogs. I do not think she was a hunt dog, she has all the hallmarks of a family pet. She really is a gem and deserves a wonderful home, either as a sole dog or as a pal for another dog, male or female.

Babar | R546

Babar male beagle crossMale, Young, Medium

Babar arrived in a skeletal state and so spent a couple of weeks in the warmth of the infirmary whilst we fattened him up a bit. He looked very sad and pathetic. Until his first walk, that is, when he ran round and played with another dog so happily that we decided to leave him outside in a kennel, where he had company and could play to his heart’s content. As well as cuddle up to keep warm. In fact Babar is sharing with two other dogs, and they are all getting on wonderfully. Babar is a beagle cross who is a tiny bit timid at first, but soon gains confidence. He was born in January 2012 and is all ready for his new home!

Mila | R544

Mira female border collieFemale, Young, Medium

Mila is a fabulous border collie who has just been abandoned at the SPA. We often get border crosses, but I am sure you will all agree that this girl is a stunner! Mila is three years old and is extremely nervous especially of men. We will do our best to socialise her at the SPA, but it will probably be some time before she learns to trust again. Poor girl, what on earth happened to her before she came to the safety of the refuge? Mila is not at all good with cats, so a patient, loving, feline-free home is needed for this beautiful girl, pleasse
