Romeo|PP015

Griffon vendeenMedium, Young, Male

Romeo was saved thanks to a follower of DRC, who found him and and his sister, Alfa, hiding in her barn, soaked to the skin and absolutely terrified. Her mairie initially told her to chase them away, but having spoken to us and told the mairie of their legal obligations, the dogs were brought to us. It is always hard to see dogs in such a state; emaciated and unkempt. However life is on the way up for them both. Still terrified, they are gradually learning that people can be kind. It will be a long road for them, but it has started well. Romeo is a griffon vendeen who was born in January 2014.

Lilikiss|PP035

Lilikiss female shepherd crossMedium, Young, Female

Lilikiss is an unlucky girl. Her owner has gone to long term care and is unable to look after her, and none of the family is able to take her either. She is a reddish brown labrador/setter cross who was born in December 2011. She is already sharing her box with a male dog, but it was a shock for her to arrive at the refuge after being in a loving home for her whole life. It is always tragic for dogs to find themselves at the SPA, but perhaps more so when they have known nothing but love beforehand.

Saba|PP034

Saba young female border collie crossMedium, Young, Female

Okay, all you border collie lovers, here we go! Saba was found in a local village and brought to the SPA. She is fine with other dogs, but has had very little training. Like most borders she is quick to learn, however. She is quite short and stocky for a border, with fluffy fur. Saba was born in June 2014, so is 18 months old. Fully grown everywhere apart from in her head! Saba is a lovely girl who would benefit from lots of outdoor activity.

Arthur|PP019

Arthur male young friendlyMedium, Young, Male

Everyone adores Arthur. The family who found him and looked after him for a few days while they tried to find his owners told us that he is fine with their dogs, cats and children. He has been sharing his kennel quite happily with a female dog. Although looking calm and composed in his kennel, Arthur is a very lively active dog who will need lots of training and exercise. However he will be an extremely rewarding boy, as he is such sweetheart. Arthur is still a young lad, born in February 2015, so his new life will be a new start for him.

Tipi|PP018

Tipi male young tri coloured AngloMedium, Young, Male

Tipi is a tricoloured Anglo who was born in January 2010. At first seemed very timid, but he is starting to come to the bars of the cage to say hello, and once he has his second vaccination and is able to go out, we will see what he is like on the lead. Although traditionally a hunting breed, Anglos make great pets. They have a tendency to follow their noses, however, so an enclosed garden will be needed.

Cassi|

Cassi female border collieMedium, Young, Female

Cassi was found with a group of travellers in Carcassonne, none of whom was prepared to claim ownership. Hence the police brought her to the SPA, from where she could find a new home. She is a border collie who is predominantly white, but with a lovely grey head. Like most dogs who have grown up with travellers, Cassi is used to mixing with both other dogs and with people, and she went straight in to share the kennel of a male dog (don’t worry, he is castrated!) Cassi would love a home where she is loved and cared for. Like all border collies, she has an active mind and would like lots of exercise for both mind and body.

Crawford|

Medium, Young, Male

Crawford young male beauceronCrawford is an incredible dog. He was found on the Hippodrome in Carcassonne, which is a favourite dog-walking spot. So far no one has come to claim him which seems strange, as he appears to be a “real” beauceron. If you don’t know this breed, they are about the size of German shepherds, and are very popular pets here in France. We see many beauceron crosses at the SPA, but rarely a specimen as fine as Crawford. Moreover he is young, calm and affectionate and good with other dogs. He could be the perfect pet for a family, or for just about anyone, in fact! Contact us soon for more information about this lad.

Chronos|P548

Chronos shepherd crossMedium, Young, Male

I have only just met Chronos for the first time, and rarely am I drawn to a dog so quickly. I like them all, of course, and many of them I become fond of as I get to know them, but Chronos and I had an immediate connection, and if there were room at my place, he was the one I would be taking home. Relatively non-descript in a SPA context, being “just” a shepherd cross, Chronos has lovely tricoloured markings and bright white legs. He is stunning. Chronos is fine boned and despite being a young dog (born in December 2014) he is relatively calm. He is good with other dogs and shares his box happily with another male. Let’s see if we can find him a home in super quick time.

Ran|P584

Ran Podenco crossMedium, Young, Male


Ran is another dog who really appeals to me. I met him when he was being tested for compatibility with another male shortly after his arrival, and the noise and bustle of the SPA was a bit much for him. He came and hid behind my legs, and although we are repeatedly told not to put our heads close to a strange dogs mouth, I instinctively kissed his head to comfort him. He nestled into my arms for comfort, and stole a tiny piece of my heart. A podenco cross with a grey muzzle, this lad was brought to the SPA just before Christmas. He is not identified, but the vet estimates that he was born in January 2011. So despite the grey muzzle he is a youngster. He is fine with other dogs and very affectionate.
