Tico| LL391

TicoMedium, Young, Male  

I met this boy when he was brought in having been found in Limoux, a local village that is responsible for a huge proportion of the number of dogs and cats at the SPA. Tico is just the latest in a long line. However he is something quite special, and I think he will appeal to a lot of you! He is a young black and white griffon with huge paws and soft fur. He is very affectionate and appears to have been well looked after, but holiday season is still here…..Tico went straight in to share with another dog with no trouble at all, and I think he is going to be one of my new favourites! I will provide more details regarding his age once he has seen the vet. Meanwhile if you like the look of Tico, why not come along and see him or get in touch with us at website@dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk

Ella| LL381

Ella - Brittany spanielMedium, Young, Female  

Another Brittany spaniel, Ella is just two years old. She looks very timid in her box, but when she went out of the refuge to visit the vet she was all “scratch my belly and LOVE ME”. Hard, after a display like that, to put her back in her kennel, knowing how much she hates it there. But that is what we had to do, in the hope that someone will see this lovely girl and want to give her a home. Ella appears to have been a family pet, rather than a hunt dog. Brittanies are quite often used to hunt, but as many of you know, they are great companions too. I think Ella has that special something that just draws people to her….I hope that one of them falls for her and offers her a new life.

Bruno| LL380

BrunoMedium, Young, Male  

Bruno was born in April 2014 and is a very dark brown colour, which you may not notice if you are just passing by his kennel on the way to something that may be more interesting. But stop again; have a closer look. This boy is quite special. Apart from his lovely colour, you have the added attraction of a dog that is constantly trying to get onto your lap, despite the fact that soon he will be too big for such shenanigans (although he will not be as large as a labrador, I don’t think). Plus he spent several weeks in the cat house, so should be fine with felines. Come on, guys, let’s find this little lad a home!

Cooky| LL379

Cookie

Cookie

Medium, Young, Male  

A young dog with huge bat-like ears! What more could you want? Cooky is a short-haired black shepherd cross with enormous fox-like ears. He was born in February 2014, so counts as one of our “not quite pups”. Yes, there are always smaller, younger and cuter dogs at the SPA, but some people like more idea as to how their adult dog is going to look! This boy is of medium height, quite slim build and is very friendly.

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!

Betty| LL34

Betty - Brittany spanielMedium, Young, Female  

Betty used to called Belote and was adopted from the SPA just over two years ago as a family’s third dog. Whereas Betty had no problems at all with the male, she was insanely jealous of the family’s other female, and this situation became completely untenable, thus causing Betty’s return to the refuge. She is sharing with Chips, one of the boys, and is doing fine, so we know she can be homed as an only dog or with a male, but not with a female. Betty is a Brittany Spaniel who was born in January 2010. She has been well loved and looked after, her medical issues (slight arthritis) need no treatment, and a fatty lump has been analysed (totally benign). So Betty needs nothing more than a loving family and all will be sorted. She is fine off the lead and is what the French call a Pot of Glue, totally loyal to her owners and extremely affectionate. A lovely dog for a couple with a non-too active lifestyle and loads of love to give to a loving little girl.

Chinah| LL360

ChinahMedium, Young, Female  

Another “not quite pup” who risks being left behind, Chinah was born on January 1st and was brought to the refuge in July, right in the middle of the holiday season. No comment. Chinah has beautiful brindle colouring, which we are hoping will attract an adopter. But of course she has had no training and is even a little bit timid. Perhaps it is just nerves at finding herself in the noise of the refuge, but it is also possible that she was not well treated before arriving with us. However Chinah is young and will soon overcome her nerves. Young dogs bounce back so quickly! Chinah is a cross breed who will be of medium size when adult and will be a stunning dog.

Jiffy| LL347

JiffyMedium, Young, Male  

Jiffy is a dog that I am really worried about. He arrived at the refuge at the age of four months (born on April 1st ), and was just that bit older than the other pups, who were all fluffy and cute. Poor Jiffy went straight to a kennel and no one has even looked at him. He is such a lovely boy. He was found at La Cite in Carcassonne, and I suspect whoever dumped him was hoping that a kind-hearted tourist would keep him. Instead he is in a cage at the SPA with no prospect of being adopted unless he is very lucky. He is mostly black, too, which does not help! Jiffy is a typical puppy, curious and loving. It breaks my heart when he puts his paw on my arm to try and stop me leaving him alone in his cage. I really want to find him a home before he grows up. Help me to help him! Please!

Darwin| LL276

Darwin labrador crossMedium, Young, Male  

Darwin was found lost and alone in a local village and brought to the refuge. He was born in July 2013, so I can probably guess what the issue is; cute puppy becomes adult dog, no one has trained him and it is time to go on holiday. Do you pay for a kennel when you don’t really want the dog, or do you just pick up another cute pup for free on the internet when you get home? The latter, of course. Darwin is a black lab cross, perhaps with some border collie there too, as he has a white blaze and white paws. As I say, he has had no training, but is quick to learn and although very excitable, he will soon calm down. Darwin would like an enclosed garden to run off some energy, and as he is great with other dogs, perhaps a friend would be good too!

Helios| LL273

Helios - griffon crossMedium, Young, Male  

Some puppies in a litter are lucky, others are not. That is just a sad fact of life. Helios used to be called Eduard and was one of the Twilight litter, born in September 2012. He was fine with the couple’s toddler and cat, but then baby number two arrived, and no one had time to walk the dog. Plus the now unsupervised toddler started annoying the dog, which is never a good thing. So back to the refuge for him. Helios is a lovely dog, he was slightly timid when he arrived (I don’t think he had been shown much affection for obvious reasons), but he is gaining in confidence thanks to the other dog with whom he is sharing. He is a griffon cross, sand coloured and just the right size! Already housetrained, Helios would be a great pet. He is wary of young children, but so would I be after what he has been through! Helios needs a second chance!
