Aelis | T473

Aelis female Malinois crossFemale, Young, Medium

Aelis is a really adorable and affectionate 3 year old malinois cross who has arrived unidentified. Moreover she has strange markings on her muzzle, which are either due to having been attacked or due to being muzzled, we think. The vet can find no medical explanation and all tests for disease were negative. Luckily these minor injuries appear to be healing and the fur is regrowing nicely, so there will be more flattering pictures to come. However we are sharing Aelis because she is so gentle and loving, and sometimes those factors are more important than a dog’s looks! Come and meet this lovely girl.

Obiwan | T464

Obiwan male border collieMale, Young, Medium

Obiwan is a border collie who was born in September 2017. He was lucky enough to be adopted directly from the pound. I say lucky, but in fact it turned out not to be the case, as he has been brought back. It is lovely when dogs leave quickly, but of course the staff don’t know them as well as they do some long-termers. In this case, however it seems to be more a case of the adopters just not being prepared from everything a border collie can bring to your life. The children were herded around like sheep, and Obiwan did not get as much stimulation of exercise as he needed. There are few things worse than a bored border! Obiwan is looking for a border-savvy home, probably as an only dog and probably without young children.

Robin | T460

Robin male puppyMale, Young, Medium

Robin is a little puppy who has had a terrible start to life. He was brought to the refuge from a different town, well outside the SCPA’s usual catchment area, but at least this way his former owner is unlikely to see him and try to reclaim him. Born in June 2018, by the time of his arrival less than three months later, Robin already had multiple bone fractures, some of which had already consolidated and so had been inflicted at different times. It is horrendous to think of any dog, let alone a puppy, suffering such abuse. Robin, of course, bears no malice at all. He is bouncy and full of fun, and looking forward to a new home. He might have mobility issues such as arthritis when he is older, but let’s hope that doesn’t prevent him from finding a loving family. He certainly deserves it. Robin is a beauceron cross, and will be a big dog when adult.

Percival | T459

Percival Brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

This five year old Breton spaniel was found at the refuge gates one morning and like so many of our new arrivals, he was unidentified. No one has come to collect him, so he is now up for adoption. Lovers of this breed know that these dogs make great family pets, as well as bieng lively and inquisitive on walks. They love the outdoors and are often used for flushing during hunts. Percival is a very handsome boy who seems used to human contact. He was born in September 2013 and so is in the prime of life.

Fido | T450

Fido mature male crossMale, Mature, Medium



This is Fido’s third time at the refuge, and none of it is his fault. He was adopted as a tiny puppy, then brought back in July last year, as his owner claimed to no longer have enough money to look after him (and our offers of financial assistance were rejected). He was homed about a month later, and this time his owner has died, leaving poor Fido homeless once again. Next time we are looking for a forever home, for this dog who is now eight years old. Fido is very obedient, he doesn’t pull on the lead and he loves people, searching out human company as much as possible. He would love a new home as a single dog (he is not always good with other dogs), and preferably with someone who is at home all the time. He is exceptionally well housetrained and can be left alone, but would rather not be. He has had bad luck in life so far, let’s change all that!

Pebble | T448

Pebble female crossFemale, Young, Medium



I was not the only one to do a double take when this girl was brought to the ScPA. Apart from her age and the slight brindle pattern in her fur, this could be my dog Caillou’s younger sister. Hence the name Pebble, of course, even though very few of the French can say it! Caillou was quite spiky when he arrived at the refuge; he needed several months of work before he was ready for adoption, and only then it had to be with someone who knew him and loved him (haha, me!) This is not at all the case for Pebble. She is adorable; already calm and affectionate, and as soon as her pound time is over, she will be ready to leave. Don’t miss out if you like the look of this gorgeous girl.

Litchi | T444

Litchi female malinois boxer crossFemale, Young, Medium



Litchi was brought to the ScPA by a former volunteer who was made aware of this dog’s plight. Her owner has what one might call an unstable lifestyle, and Litchi gets moved from pillar to post, often tied up, never walked and often left hungry. This lifestyle is not right for any dog, let alone one who is so young and active, so Litchi is at the refuge, in the hope that a better life awaits. And we are sure that it does! Litchi is a malinois boxer cross who was born in August 2017. She is very affectionate, but still learning not to use her teeth when she gives kisses. She is a very pretty dog who needs lots of exercise and would benefit from some training. But being the breed mix she is, she will be quick to learn, and will become a very good family member for someone who likes the great outdoors and wants a loyal companion to share the fun.

Caps | T431

Caps young male spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium


Caps is so named du to his resemblance to Capsule, a dog we rehomed many years ago. We never really forget any of them! This little spaniel cross was born in March 2018 and was brought to the refuge having been found straying in a nearby village. Need I say that he was not identified? After leaving the pound after the obligatory ten days, Caps went into share a kennel with another young dog, and the two of them love their walks. Everyone who walks them tells us how fabulous they are, and we are sure that whoever offers a home to Caps will be very lucky indeed.

Balou | T395

Balou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Balou was brought in by one of the refuge’s growing number of cruelty inspectors. This medium sized pale brown dog was spending his life attached by a chain so that he was unable to run away. That is no life for a dog. However now he is at the refuge we understand a bit more why someone with an unenclosed garden would have trouble keeping this boy in. Boy is he a Houdini! He scales fences and can leap really high. So if your garden is not properly enclosed, you should probably forget about this lad. Balou was born in November 2014 and although we have not managed to mix him at the refuge, we are told that he is okay with other dogs.

Cerise | T409

Cerise female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium


Cerise was brought in for rehoming by her owner who was not someone who should have an animal, and who realised that Cerise would be happier elsewhere. So really we don’t know much about her, as her owner did not know her so couldn’t pass on much information. What we have learned so far is that Cerise is nervous of brusque movements, but is gaining in confidence as the days pass. She has never been on a lead, so some work in this area will be required, although of course the staff and volunteers at the refuge will have this sorted pretty soon. She is fine with other dogs and is very pretty, a medium sized black and tan dog with wispy hair and an adorable expression. Cerise was born in July 2016 and will leave the refuge fully vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip
