Logo |P165

logoMedium, Puppy, Male

You may have read on the blog about the arrival of Logo at the SPA. He was found in a box, with a note asking the finder to take good care of him. What I did not mention was that when we asked the person who brought him to the SPA to leave her name and address (as we always do), the handwriting was identical to that on the note. Very distinctive letters, and the match is good enough to hold up in court. Makes me want to sigh in despair. That notwithstanding, the SPA has another puppy to home. One who is lucky enough to be in a foster home, where he is learning to live with three other dogs. Logo is having a great start in life; will you be the one to take over from his foster family? Logo will be medium to large and is a shepherd cross.

Flavie |P159

flavieMedium, Young, Female

Flavie is another planned abandon, this time because her owners were moving to a flat, and thought it would be unfair to take their dog with them. Well, it is not fair to abandon her at a refuge, either! However, we are where we are. Flavie is a tricoloured spaniel who was born in September 2013. She is sociable with other dogs and although many people in these parts associate spaniels with hunting, Flavie has always been a pet. And that is what she wants to be again!

Kaya |P145

kayaMedium, Young, Female

How weird is this story…..A dog arrived at the SPA and at the same time an announcement is put on the website Pet Alert by someone looking for their lost dog. Our team of doggy-detectives compare the photos and it is obviously the same dog. Down to the very last marking. What’s more, the dog went missing from the same village where the SPA dog was found. But when we phone the owner up (on the number given on the lost dog announcement), they tell us that their dog has been found! This is clearly a case of now they know their dog is safe, they do not care. It makes me so angry! But moving on (because there is no other option), Kaya is a lovely young shepherd cross with an unusual pink strip down her nose. She had a home until recently, so we assume she is housetrained. She is fine with other dogs and is lively and affectionate. Kaya was born in March 2011.

Lupa|P140

lupaMedium, Young, Female

Loupa is a female Czech wolf dog cross who was found straying in a nearby village with her brother, Wolf. We will never know if they were the result of an unwanted litter, or if a breeder hoped to cash in on the wolf-craze following the series Game of Thrones. What we DO know is that Loupa is a lovely girl who shares well with other dogs and is so so pretty. She was born in March 2013 and for people with the right lifestyle, she will be a great companion.

Wolf|P139

wolfMedium, Young, Male

Wolf was found with his sister Loupa in a nearby village. Now, we might all have our own opinions on the wisdom of breeding dogs with wolves, and no doubt the series Game of Thrones has something to answer for. But the fact remains that although perhaps not the easiest of dogs, the Czech wolf dog is here to stay. Not for amateurs, however! These dogs are so pretty, but so far the only people who have expressed interest have been living in apartments, and working pretty much full time. We don’t think that is the best place for these dogs. Wolf was born in March 2014 and is fine with other dogs (we separated him from his sister when they arrived). He will be castrated before leaving!

Louise|P137

louiseMedium, Young, Female

Louise is a pretty tousle-haired cross breed with a white chest. She looks the sort of dog who would be easy to home, especially as she is female. But sadly, like her “sister” Thelma, Louise has been living wild. It is going to take some time and a lot of patience to give this dog the confidence that she is currently lacking. She is sharing her box with a more confident dog, (it would have been a mistake to leave her with her sister, as two terrified dogs together find it hard to make progress) and we will look for a loving patient home for this girl.

Thelma|P136

thelmaMedium, Young, Female

Thelma was found with Louise (yes, I know, but you try thinking up names for all the unidentified dogs who arrive) having been found in the village of Saissac. Although looking nothing alike, I think of them as sisters, as they have been straying together and appear inseparable. So what is the first thing we did when they arrived? Why, separate them, of course! Each dog had gone to share a box with a gentle but outgoing male (castrated, of course). It is hoped that Thelma and Louise will soon learn to trust people and be homed. Thelma is a young reddish coated and fine boned Labrador cross. At the moment she is terrified, but she shows no aggression at all. It would be lovely to see her in a home one day, despite the horrid start to life that she has had

Angelina|P132

angelinaMedium, Young, Female

When one of our volunteers, Isa, saw this dog, she just said “Oh no”. I didn’t even have to ask why. A young dog but not a puppy, and that classic hard to home type; a black mongrel with a bit of Labrador, a bit of shepherd and a white bib. How many dogs like this do we have at the SPA? Lots at any one time, that is for sure. Angelina was terrified when she arrived, spinning around on her lead and looking really unhappy, though luckily for us and her, not at all snappy. She has now settled in and is sharing her kennel and is a lovely looking girl, who may not find it as hard to find a home as we first thought!

Salvador|P131

salvadorMedium, Mature, Male

Oh, gorgeous gorgeous boy! I went into the kennel to take photos of this boy shortly after his arrival, and he stole my heart. A bit like a jagd terrier, but bigger, or a small griffon, this boy has a great cheeky personality. I was calling to him to get him to look at the camera, but that just caused him to come towards me for cuddles. Cue lots of photos of his rear end! Salvador was so named because he looks like a smaller version of our long term resident, Dali. But he is nowhere near as lively. At the time of publication I do not know his age, but he seems to be entering that mature phase when a dog is a sheer joy!

Scruff|P130

scruffMedium, Young, Male

DRC received a message from a woman in a local village who had found a dog and did not know what to do with him. Furthermore, he had sore paws, and was not identified. She treated his paws, and when he was better, she did the right thing; she brought him to the SPA, where he has a chance of finding his owners. But no one came for him, and little Scruff is now up for adoption. Because he spent several days in a home before coming to us, we know that this dog is good with other dogs (including grumpy old ones) and even with cats. In fact the woman would have happily kept him, had it not been for the insistence of her husband. Where have we heard that before?!
