Sanders| LL437

sandersMedium, Young, Male

Sanders arrived looking very thin, but he will soon fill out and everyone will see what a magnificent dog he is. I think he may be a labradoodle; he certainly has the poodle fur! He is gentle and already has good basic training. His tail is docked, which is a bit bizarre, but I always point out the positives of this; no swiping glasses off coffee tables and no need to detangle burrs from his fur after walks! Sanders is fully grown, but should weigh about 30kg, rather than the 22 or so he weighs now. If you are looking for a biggish but gentle unusual looking dog, come and meet Sanders.

Cleo| LL427

cleoMedium, Young, Female

Cleo is a young female setter/ spaniel cross who spent a week being looked after by the couple who found her before they brought her to the SPA. This of course reduced her owners chances of finding her (assuming they were looking, of course), as after a week many people give up hope. So Cleo finds herself at the SPA. She is gentle and sweet and has a lovely face and we hope that she finds a new home soon. Cleo is fine with other dogs and is four years old.

Copernic| LL387

Medium, Young, Male

copernicCopernic is a young pale coloured shepherd cross (date of birth 01.10 .13) who has quite a dominant character. Luckily we have managed to find him a kennel mate who, despite being bigger and stronger, is tolerant of his new pal’s antics! Copernic is a nice dog, but he has a strong hunting instinct. This means we would probably prefer not to home him with cats or other animals. Other than that he is a sweet dog, although like so many of our dogs would benefit from some training. So not a “ready made” dog, perhaps, but if you are willing to put in some time and effort, Copernic will be a very rewarding dog. He is on the smallish size of medium, if that makes sense, so is not hard to handle, which will of course mean that training is a lot easier than with a big dog!

Maya| LL422

mayaMedium, Young, Female

Now who doesn’t like a blue merle collie? I know I do! This girl is so pretty. Date of birth yet to be notified, but Maya is certainly young. She has the blue merle’s typical eyes (blue) and is a stunning dog. But unless you know the breed, she may not be the easiest of dogs. Border collies are very intelligent and require plenty of stimulation, mental as well as physical. Maya is no different. She is already sharing her kennel with a male and seems to be a well-balanced and happy dog; just one who probably turned out to be too much work for her owner.

Kort| LL420

kortMedium, Young, Male

Kort has a very distinctive cross pattern across his head, which makes him easily recognisable, so we can only assume that he was an unwanted pet, as all our efforts to find him via the internet have failed. On this basis, Kort can certainly do better, as he is a young dog who is worth so much more than this casual attitude that people so often have towards dogs around here. A young German Shepherd cross, at just over 2 years old, Kort has his whole life ahead of him. He was bit nervous when he first arrived, but has settled in well. I just wish he didn’t look like so many other dogs at the SPA. He could wait for a long time unless he is chosen soon, while he has the advantage of youth!

Dundee| LL402

dundeeMedium, Young, Male  

Dundee arrived at the refuge via a local vet, where he had been taken by the fire brigade who had picked him up from the side of the road. Dundee had been hit by a car and x-rays showed a broken pelvis. A costly operation followed, but the SPA vet is excellent and Dundee is expected to make a full recovery. He is a St Hubert cross who was born in September 2009. He has a lovely gentle nature and will be a great family pet. He is sharing his kennel with another dog and will be fine as a sole dog or as a pal for your family pet. If you like floppy-eared hounds, then please consider offering a home to Dundee.

Pulco| LL396

pulcoMedium, Young, Male  

This young lad he was born in February 2014 is a real find. The people who brought him in having found him as a stray have other dogs and children and they were considering keeping him. However they decided that they have enough animals already, but at least we know that Pulco is okay with chickens, and how many times do we know that? Pulco is a tricoloured setter who is young enough to put the misery of the SPA behind him….providing he does not stay here too long, that is!

Karadoc| LL395

karadocMedium, Puppy, Male  

 

Karadoc is the last of a litter of 6 puppies, he was adopted and brought back due to a supposed allergy, and while he was away all his brothers and sisters left. So he is alone and life is no fun. Karadoc was born on June 1st, so it still a young pup with a whole world to discover. We would love him to be adopted so that he, like his siblings, can have a proper puppy hood. Karadoc is a labrador/ border collie cross, we think, with pretty grey fur around his ears. He is playful and lively, but of course he would be; he is a puppy!

Nestor| LL392

nestorMedium, Young, Male  

Nestor arrived with a horrific injury to his neck. He had been tied up with a steel cord, and the chain had become embedded in his skin. It had to be peeled off, and the wound was deep and nasty. However a couple of weeks later and Nestor is pretty much recovered. Surprisingly he seems not too badly affected by his ordeal; although he is nervous of people, if you stay still he will approach you and sniff and if you are lucky, give your ear a little lick. It is as if he has seen nothing at all in his few years (he was born in January 2010). He is eager to learn, though, and his confidence is growing by the day, especially now he is sharing with another dog. Nestor is an ariegeois cross, a medium sized hound with a Roman nose. He is wonderful with cats, too. I adore this dog!

Gisele| LL369

Gisele Brittany spanielMedium, Young, Female  

Of the several female Brittany spaniels at the refuge, Gisele has the dubious honour of being the eldest. However you would not guess it from looking at her. This girl has stacks of energy, and I adore the way she drums her front paws on the floor with excitement when you approach her. Gisele was born in August 2007, which is about middle aged for a Brittany. She is very affectionate, and for some reason thinks that a lap is the right place for her. Definitely a dog that seeks out and adores human company, but Gisele is also good with male dogs. She has not been tested with females yet, but shows no aggression at all when she is being walked. Lovely girl! Please don’t overlook her just because there are younger models available!
