Goltenk| A445

GoltenkMale, Young, Medium

Believe it or not this young dog was found at the bottom of a well! Yes, Goltenk is very lucky to be alive, so many thanks to the dog walker who heard his barks and managed to get him out and bring him to the refuge. Miraculously this lovely lad was identified, and thanks to this the owner was contacted. It turns out that he had been trying to give his dog away free on the internet, but with no success. I leave it to you to draw your own conclusions. In any case, the end result is that Goltenk is looking for a new home, so let’s see if the ScPA can succeed where leboncoin failed! We are all in favour of responsible homing, so let’s try and help Goltenk on his way to a fabulous new life! He is a small russett coloured crossbred with fur a bit like a ridgeback. He is very friendly and well socialised and just adorable. Far too lovely to finish up down a well, in any case!

Tommy| A417

Tommy male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Anyone who knows about the ongoing love affair between me and Caillou will understand why I love Tommy so much. In fact I suspect that he may have come from the same place as my dog, just from a much more recent litter. Unlike Caillou Tommy doesn’t seem to have been beaten, but he is quite wary when initially meeting people. Once he meets you, though, he is quick to trust and is a very affectionate dog, just desperate for someone to love him as much as he will love them. He is sharing his box fine and is doing really well. Plus just look at how handsome he is! A dog anyone would be proud to have at their side! Tommy was born in June 2018 and is a shepherd cross, with quite a bit of staffy about him, but no need for papers and insurance!

Marvin| A404

Marvin male Brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Yet another spaniel, this time a Brittany spaniel, and a young one at that! Marvin arrived in late July wearing one of those luminous collars so beloved of hunters. However almost inevitably he was not identified and just as inevitably no one has been along to collect him. Marvin was born in August 2016 and is on the small size. He is quite a calm dog, who went to share his kennel immediately upon leaving the pound. The fact that he may have had a hunting background does not mean that he is unsuitable as a family pet. Brittany spaniels are very loyal to their owners, and although they are interested in hunting, they tend to play more of a flushing role, staying close to their owners. Marvin will make a great companion for anyone who likes the outdoors but he will be very happy lounging around as well.

Ben| A396

Ben young male spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Spaniel lovers really do have plenty of choice at the ScPA right now. We have many more dogs of this breed, or crossbreeds with quite a bit of spaniel in them, as is the case with brothers Ben and Jerry. In fact they had two sisters, as well, but as is often the case, the girls have been adopted before the boys. But please don’t overlook the boys, they are wonderful. They were found unidentified in a nearby village, but have not been abused or neglected. They are good on the lead, very used to people and sociable with other dogs. Ben was born in January 2017 and is ready for his new home!

Boomer| A426

oomer young male labrador crossMale, Young, Medium

Boomer had a very sad life before coming to the refuge, and will need a dog experienced family to help him get over his trauma. We are not sure where his life started, but he was “acquired” (presumably free via the internet) by someone who left him tied up 24/7 and reliant on passers by for scraps of food and sometimes he was even without water. Luckily for him he made it to the refuge, and immediately to foster, where he settled in well and was fine with the family’s other dog as well as being clean in the house. He was adopted directly from this foster house, however his new family turned out to be far from ideal for him, and by the time they brought him back, Boomer’s former foster had taken on another dog and were unable to take him back. So Boomer is at the refuge, but that is fine in some ways, as there he will get far more exposure to other dogs and people, which will help him with his socialisation. Boomer is looking for a dog-savvy home, with or without other dogs, but with lots of love and presence. Boomer was born in January 2013 and is medium haired labrador cross.

Wess| A289

Wess young male lemon settter crossMale, Young, Medium

Wess is a lovely lemon setter cross who was brought to the refuge in late July. He was already identified, but as is so often the case, he waited and waited for his owner to come and collect him, only to be disappointed. Wess was born in December 2017, so is a very young dog. He has made lots of friends since his arrival at the refuge, with both other dogs and people, and he enjoys his sadly all-too-infrequent walks. Setters make wonderful pets. They are great walking companions as they love the outdoors, and they love just generally exploring. Although they have powerful noses, they tend to stay close to their owners. Wess is all ready for his new home, and for an adoption fee of just €170 could be at your side!

Oscar| A269

Oscar Male, Young, Medium

The fact that Oscar is at the refuge might make you feel sorry for him. Don’t! This dog was seen straying in a field in Carcassonne (yes, we have fields here, too) and was caught thanks to a volunteer using a trap and lots of patience. Oscar, who was born in March 2018, was in a terrible state and unlucky for him, he was identified. His owner came to collect him, but was persuaded to leave his dog at the refuge to find a better life. Oscar is looking far better already. Gone are all the ticks and fleas, and Oscar is no longer skeletal. He is a stunning dog. Unsurprisingly he is nervous of people; we doubt that he has ever known any human contact or affection before coming to the refuge. But this is something the ScPA is excellent at. Oscar is gradually learning that people can be kind and gentle, and we will ensure that Oscar’s new family show him nothing but love from now on.

Pegasus| A367

Pegasus male Breton spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Pegasus arrived with Breton spaniel Muse in mid July and although the two dogs look very similar, the vet estimates that Pegasus is some 6 months older than his sister, with a birth date of July 2017. It is all guesswork, however, as neither dog was identified upon arrival. Pegasus is not at all nervous of people and loves a cuddle. He is fine with other dogs, but does not seem to like cats. Breton spaniels make great family pets as well as being great companion dogs for people who like long walks. Sometimes beloved of hunters, they are used more to flush prey than chase it down, so tend to stay close, which is a bonus for anyone who likes to end a walk with their dog, as opposed to standing their screaming their lungs out for hours afterwards!

Muse| A368

Muse Breton spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Muse is yet another Breton spaniel cross. We really do seem to have lots of them at the refuge at the moment. Muse arrived with Pegasus in mid July, and as neither dog was identified we have no idea as to their provenance. However both dogs are full of character, they are affectionate and good with other dogs and love being outdoors. If you like this breed I have to say that these two dogs are particularly pretty, and although they arrived together, they can live separately or with another family dog. Probably not with cats, though. Muse was born in January 2018.
