Buffy | A586

Buffy senior female labradorFemale, Mature, Medium

Buffy was found in one of the ScPA’s external boxes one morning. This is almost the worst way for a dog to arrive, as it means either that the dog has been found as a stray and the person who found him has no place to keep him overnight, or that the owner has not got the bottle to bring the dog in for rehoming. In Buffy’s case, the owner was going to hospital and “had no other solution”. Bringing her in during opening hours would have been better, but hey ho. Buffy is looking for a long term foster family. We have no illusions that anyone will adopt her. Buffy is old and has trouble walking. Moreover she is not good with dogs or cats (unusual for a labrador!). On the positive side she is very affectionate and totally house trained. All she wants is a warm home and a small yard to trot round in. She would be a loving and loyal companion, I am sure.

Melba | A529

Melba female Bleu de GasgoineFemale, Young, Medium


Melba was captured and brought to the refuge by one of our supporters who saw this lovely hunt type dog straying in her village over the course of several weeks and decided to do something about it! Melba was actually identified, but as her owner did not reclaim her within ten days, lucky Melba has the chance to find a new home, rather than going back to a life in an outdoor kennel with just occasional “working” trips. Okay, she is outdoors at the refuge, but she gets loads of love, and of course the situation is just temporary! Melba is a very shy girl, a griffon bleu de Gascogne, who was born in May 2016. She is making good progress at the refuge, but would be far happier in a home. Ideally she would be rehomed with another dog to give her confidence, and a well enclosed garden is required. Along with lots of love and patience, of course!

Myra | A562

Myra young female labrador crossFemale, Young, Medium

Myra is a very unusual but rather stunning girl who looks like a mix between a yellow labrador and a sharpei. Whatever the mix is, it really works! Myra arrived thanks to the Police Municipal who informed the ScPA that although they knew who her owner was, he would not be collecting his dog. So it is new home time for Myra. She is a great girl, lively and friendly, not bad at all on the lead and great with other dogs. What more is there to say? Myra was born in October 2017, so is very young and has her whole life ahead of her. She shows no sign of having been mistreated and is a happy, joyful dog.

Tia| T631

Tia  young femaleFemale, Young, Medium

Another dog who was adopted and brought back, and thus missed off the website, Tia is not a staffy, and can in fact be adopted by anyone who likes the chunky type dogs but does not want to apply for all the permits needed to have a categorised dogs. Tia was born in June 2015, and although her owners made lots of effort to socialise her, she really has to be an only dog. She has a very strong character and will not be suitable as a first dog, although she already has good basic obedience. A very affectionate dog, Tia will need discipline and an experienced owner, but she is worth it!

Hermés| A108

Hermes male beagle crossMale, Young, Medium

 

Hermés is another of the possibly ex-hunting pack who arrived at the ScPA gates one morning. He is the least beagle of the bunch; clearly he is more Breton spaniel than anything, but with a bit of a rough beard. He is a fabulous dog, really affectionate but a tiny bit nervous at first. He was adopted quite quickly but brought back less than 2 days later as his new family found him too nervous and did not give him the time to settle in. Hermes needs a bit of patience, that is all. He was born in March 2016 and is fine with other dogs and children of all ages.

Gaspard | T647

Gaspard male German shepherdMale, Mature, Medium

Gaspard was brought to the refuge by the cruelty inspectors, who found this dog chained up and starving. Who would do that to a fabulous German shepherd? Gaspard is still in recovery inside the infirmary, although he goes outside for short walks most days. He is still very thin, so wolfs his food down a bit, and this is one reason why he is not mixable for the moment. We hope that he soon realises that food will be plentiful from now on, and that other dogs are not competition. Gaspard was born in February 2011 and would love a new home where he will be loved properly

Oups | T652

Oups young male malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Oups is a very chunky young lad. He was brought to the refuge by a woman who had been trying to do good, but as is so often the case, had become overwhelmed by the number of dogs she wanted to save, none of whom was adoptable due to the fact that they lived as a pack, with no walks or socialisation. Luckily Oups is young enough to have his life turned around, which is what the ScPA is now attempting to do. At present Oups pulls on the lead and we are not able to get him to share his kennel, but both of these are just a matter of time. And when you see how handsome Oups is, you realise why we are posting him! A boxer malinois cross, Oups is a stunning mix. He was born in July 2017 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Noisette | T501

Noisette female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Noisette was found at the refuge gates one morning with her puppy, Pirouette. Both dogs had mange and were put in isolation until this infection had been treated. Luckily they had each other, so it was not too bad an experience for them. Now, they are all well and ready for a new home. Noisette is a shepherd cross who seems to be a very calm girl. Recently she escaped from her kennel and her first instinct was to run to the nearest person, who just slipped a lead over her head and gave her a cuddle. Yes, you are right, probably a homeless person’s dog; sociable and well balanced. Her puppy-bearing days are over now, and although she is not quite five years old, Noisette would like a more stable lifestyle than she has had up to now!

Flurry|PP267

Flurry female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Flurry has been at the SPA since June 2016, and although she was a bit difficult at first, she soon settled down and is now a great young girl. She has stunning looks, primarily black but with brown highlights, and not only is she fine with male dogs, but she is also wonderful on a lead. Don’t let her near cats, though. Flurry was born in June 2015, so is young and full of energy. She would be a great guard dog, as she will be devoted to her family. If you like long walks and would like some canine companionship, Flurry may be the girl for you.
