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!

Duke|R217

Duke male newfoundland look alikeMale, Young, Medium

Duke looks like a Newfoundland, except for the size. Now this may be a good thing, as not everybody wants an enormous dog, but sadly for him the only people who have liked the look of him on Facebook wanted exactly that! Duke was straying for a long time in a local village before being brought to the SPA, but he does not seem to have been mistreated at all, and is a friendly young lad. Duke was born in January 2014, so no, there is no chance that he will grow any more!

Louisa|R216

Louisa spaniel cross femaleFemale, Young, Medium

Louisa is a very pretty spaniel cross, pale brown and white in colour. She was found as a stray in Aragon and as she was not identified we have no way of finding her owners. However we are pretty sure she must have had owners until fairly recently; she is not particularly thin, she is affectionate and she HATES being locked up. Still, if her owners are not looking for her, surely someone else will fall for this beautiful girl. Louisa was born in January 2016.

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.

Rex|R169

rex male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Rex was brought in by his owner as he felt he was too old to look after his dog properly. However Rex is in no way a difficult dog and although he would probably like more exercise than he was getting, he seems very happy with whatever life brings him. Rex is a seven year old brittany spaniel (date of birth April 2010) who has fabulous body language and who is wonderful with other dogs. He is not a “runner”, and like other dogs of his breed, is a great “all rounder”. Brittanies are very loving family pets as well as often being used for hunting. Rex would like a new family with a garden and maybe another dog to play with too.

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.

Jack|R071

Jack jagd terrierMale, Mature, Medium

If any of you remember lovely Rosie, who was at the SPA this time last year and now happily homed, you will have an idea of what Jack looks like. Jack is smaller than Rosie, but very similar to look at…kind of like a mini black labrador with a stumpy tail. Officially he is a jagd terrier cross, we know this as he arrived already identified. He was already castrated, too, but as he was put in the external boxes when the SPA was open, it seems likely that he was brought in by his owner. Jack was born in July 2008.

Pascoe|R080

PascoeMale, Young, Medium

Pascoe was found in a nearby village, in fact statistically it is the village that brings proportionately more dogs than any other, Limoux. In this case it appears that someone has moved house and accidentally forgotten their dogs. Because Pascoe arrived the same time as Leo, and the first thing Leo did was fall ill with parvovirus, so we know that the dogs were not vaccinated. Pascoe was born in January 2012 and is a grey and black griffon cross. Clearly he is okay with male dogs, and is a lovely lad who is shocked to find himself at the refuge. This is a breed that really appeals to Brits, so let’s try and find a home for lovely Pascoe.
