Viking| LL455

Medium, Young, Male

vikingDon’t look now, but yet another border collie has arrived! Viking is a fine looking boy, born in April 2013 and good with other dogs. As we emphasise over and over again, border collies need plenty of exercise and stimulation, but providing they do, they are wonderful family pets, lively and intelligent. Viking would like a home with a garden and regular walks. If his new owner wants to take him to agility classes or some kind of dog sport, I am sure he would excel, as Viking is a happy lad who wants to please!

Capucine| LL453

Medium, Young, Female

capucineAnother dog who was brought in on a very busy day, Capucine is a young shepherd cross who is fine with both males and females. So far we don’t know very much about her, as before she has had her two vaccinations she will not be walked. We do know that she was born on January 1st 2013 (or thereabouts) and that she arrived in good condition, implying that she had not been straying for long and is far more likely to be an unwanted family pet. She always has a smile on her face, though, and seems to know that better things are round the corner for her!

Jedai| LL472

Medium, Young, Male

jedaiInitially this lovely boy just hid in his box, a couple of volunteers went in to coax him out. As soon as he knew he was safe, the game completely changed! Jedai is just wonderful. Young, big, bouncy, affectionate. He reminds me very much of Oscar, a dog who was happily homed a few months ago and who has turned out to be an amazing family pet, as I am sure will be the case for Jedi. I could be wrong, but I suspect that the family expected him not to grow to this size, (Jedi is about the size of a labrador, though not as chunky) and is a typical griffon. We don’t have his date of birth yet, but he is very young and is a great looking dog with a lovely character.

Genesis| LL459

Medium, Young, Female

genesisGenesis is a young female beauceron who arrived at the refuge the same day as about 7 other dogs (not together, I hasten to add) at the beginning of October. Beaucerons are a French breed who are fairly large of stature, and it is possibly for this reason that Genesis has been discarded at the age of 18 months (she was born in April 2013). Quite often people under estimate the size a dog will become or how much exercise he or she will need. Genesis is already sharing her box with a male dog and she is a very beautiful girl who would probably like a garden and long walks.

Xenon| LL456

Medium, Mature, Male

xenonLike his sister Noelle, Xenon was abandoned when his owners moved house, leaving the two dogs alone in the house, if you can believe it! The children went in to feed them, but they have full time jobs and although they come in regularly to walk the dogs, their personal circumstances make it impossible to keep the dogs on a permanent basis. Sometimes it is hard not to be judgemental when you hear stories like this, but our job is to help the dogs, so that is what we are doing. Xenon is a black lab, born in December 2006. He is fine with his sister Noelle, but we have yet to test him with males, or in fact other females. However after years of neglect we are sure that this boy will be grateful for a new home where he is loved.

Black| LL449

Medium, Young, Male

blackBlack was born in February 2014 and is a lovely griffon cross, black with a white chest. He is lively, confident and outgoing and is fine with other dogs. He is quite slight of build, but of course although he has reached his full height, he will probably fill out a bit as he grows up; right now he is still quite puppy like. He arrived in good condition and is probably just a “pet” who has outgrown his welcome. But dogs with his character are always welcome! Griffons make lovely pets, despite being classified as hunt dogs. Come on, give this young lad a chance!

Caramel| LL448

Medium, Mature, Male

 

caramelCaramel’s owners divorced. Neither husband nor wife wanted the dog, but initially the man took him, threatening his ex-wife that if she didn’t agree to some other aspect of the divorce agreement, he would throw Caramel out onto the motorway. And sure enough, that is where Caramel was found, though luckily he was unhurt. Oh, the games people play. If it had been a child that was used in this way there would be police involvement, but of course this was only a dog…..The wife came to the refuge a few days later to bring in Caramel’s paperwork, and thus a phase of Caramel’s life was over. Caramel was born in December 2006 and is a reddish brown labrador cross who is a bit underweight (a result of being used as a pawn between a warring couple, I am guessing). He is fine with other males (and thus presumably females). Here is a dog who really deserves a better life!

Panach| LL446

Medium, Young, Male

panachPanach was found along with his brother, Diabolo, on the training ground of the dog training school at Trebes. Whoever had bred this unwanted litter (grrr) obviously knew that the pups would be found by dog lovers and either kept out of pity or taken to somewhere safe. They were brought to the SPA. Both dogs were terrified, so heaven alone knows what they have suffered before arriving with us. However we are gradually teaching them that people (most people) are kind and that there is nothing to fear. Panach was born in April 2014 and is a pale brown shepherd cross with a dark muzzle. Some malinois in there, perhaps? Who can offer this chap a home and let him grow up with a family, not in a cage?

Balou| LL441

balouMedium, Young, Male

Balou is a wonderful looking golden lab who was abandoned due to a change in family circumstances towards the end of September. He is friendly and photogenic and he always gives you a lovely greeting when you go to his box. The SPA has many black labs but yellow labs are far rarer, and the only thing counting against Balou is his age; he will be five in November. However as I know from my own lab, this is just the age when labs stop being puppies in their heads, and start to calm down. I am sure that Balou will be a great family pet, but he will need to be the only male dog of the family.
