Isis|P266

isisMedium, Young, Female

Isis is a young yellow lab cross. She was born in July 2012 and although she arrived at the SPA already identified, so far no one has come to collect her. We have far fewer females than males at the refuge, and so Isis is sharing with a (castrated) male. She is a lovely looking girl who seems to have had a good life up till now, arriving as she did in good condition. Could she be another victim of holiday abandonment? Whatever the case, Isis will need a new home. Could it be with you?

Bridget|P264

bridgetMedium, Puppy, Female

Bridget, like so many of our dogs, has been listed by the vet as being a berger cross. Although this translates as being a shepherd (ie herding) breed, I think it is just a polite way of saying “mutt”. But what a stunning mutt little Bridget is. What’s more she is a puppy! A white puppy! What could be cuter?!

Arnold|P261

arnoldMedium, Young, Male

Arnold is a young fauve de Bretagne who was adopted from the SPA this Spring but who now finds himself back with us through no fault of his own. The couple simply chose the wrong breed. Whereas sometimes getting out of one’s box is a good thing, in general if you know that you want a lab, getting a lively nose-driven dog is not the best idea. Arnold is a great little chap. He is small to medium, fine with other dogs and (I think) good with cats. He will need an enclosed garden and plenty of stimulation, but he is fine both on and off the lead. Arnold was born in March 2012, is fully vaccinated and castrated and all ready for his new home!

Ido|P258

idoMedium, Young, Male

According to the Central Database, Ido is a lab/border cross. This may surprise some of you, who would perhaps expect him to be yet another berger (ie shepherd) cross. I can only assume that Ido’s former owners knew both parents. Yes, Ido arrived already microchipped, but the owner’s details are no longer up to date, so although our detectives are on the case, so far we have had no luck tracking them down. Ido is a lovely mix, sharing his box with another male and seemingly tolerant of all-comers. He was born in May 2013, so is a young dog who would love a new home.

Dinki|P253

dinkiMedium, Young, Female

Poor Dinki. Just over one year old and already she finds herself at the SPA. Dinki is yet another berger (for which read medium sized shepherd type) dog. Being female she has a better chance of being adopted than her male counterparts, but of course her main colour, black, will not help her any. Dinki is a lovely girl, however, sharing her kennel quite happily with a male and always coming to the bars to see who is coming to visit. It is sad to see the look on her face as yet another visitor passes by. For now, like so many other dogs, she will have to be content with an occasional walk and a cuddle from the volunteers.

Hyde|P250

hydeMedium, Young, Female

Hyde is a young female whom the vet estimates as having been born in December 2013. She is extremely nervous, and we can only guess at what has happened to her prior to her arrival at the SPA. She is sharing her kennel with a more confident (castrated) male, and we are hoping that this will give this young girl some much needed confidence. Hyde is a black and tan shepherd cross who would benefit from being with a dog experienced family and preferably one with a second dog who can carry on teaching her the rules!

Jekyl|P249

jekylMedium, Young, Male

Jekyl is a great looking dog. Not quite one year old, although if he spends this summer at the SPA, he will “celebrate” his first birthday with us in September. Officially a berger (ie shepherd) cross, Jekyl is of medium size and has clear tricolour markings. He is a very handsome chap. What’s more he is sharing his kennel with another male, and when this is the case, a dog is almost invariably good with females, too. Jekyl would like a new home, preferably one with an enclosed garden and an active lifestyle. He is a young dog with bags of energy, but also bags of love!

Lincoln|P247

lincolnMedium, Mature, Male

Many people, on seeing Lincoln’s picture, will just say “hunt dog” and move on. Please don’t. Griffon crosses like Lincoln are too easily overlooked, or written off as being unsuitable for family life. Lincoln was born in June 2010, according to the vet’s estimate, so he is no youngster. What’s more he is sharing his kennel quite happily. Lincoln has wiry hair, which I know from my experience with my own dogs this summer is extremely resilient to many of the problems associated with the weather; grass seeds etc just do not seem to get a hold, making dogs like this very low maintenance. We have yet to really get to know him, but if you like how he looks, then why not come along and meet him?

Kim|P189

kimMedium, Young, Female

To my shame, Kim had been at the SPA for over a month before anyone made her an album on Facebook. Sad to say this is because she is a dog that just gets lost at the SPA. No, she doesn’t hide or cower in the corner of her kennel; she seems perfectly lovely and well-adjusted. It is just that there is nothing remarkable about either her looks or her behaviour. In fact seeing the photos of her I realise that she is rather elegant looking with lovely ears, but when you are passing in front of a row of kennels being barked at, you perhaps don’t appreciate these finer points! Now that I have met her, she is on my radar! Kim was born in May 2011 and is a black and tan shepherd cross. She is good with other dogs and affectionate in an unassuming way, Kim is a hidden gem!

Inki|P214

inkiMedium, Young, Male

I am afraid this one is down to us, guys. The overwhelming majority of dogs at the SPA are there due to the foibles of the French. Inki, however, has (or rather HAD) a British owner. This (gentle)man let his dog wander all day and on previous occasions he has come to the SPA to collect him However this time our phone calls are going unanswered, so we have to assume that Inki is no longer wanted. According to the principle of 6 degrees of separation, chances are that someone out there knows someone who knows this man, so I hope he realises that I do not like him very much! If you are unable to look after your dog, the least you can do is bring it to safety and let us know as much as possible about him or her so we can find a suitable home. All we know right now is that Inki is often wandering alone. But is that because he needs an enclosed garden, or is it because he is left alone all day and gets bored?
