Cliona | R380

ClionaFemale, Mature, Medium 

I can’t believe that Cliona is back. That was a sad day at the SPA believe me, and seeing staff crying is not nice. Many of you will remember this dog, who was brought into the SPA last summer after weeks of straying. She was covered in ugly tumours and a fundraising campaign was launched to pay for her operations. She emerged as a sleek and beautiful black lab cross, and we were delighted when she was homed to people who had been walking her regularly during her recuperation. Five months later and she was brought back with the explanation that she had bitten the father. We know that Cliona is nervous of many people (especially men), which is hardly surprising when you bear in mind her history. But it turns out that she was approached in the dark while she was sleeping and that is when she bit. That is no excuse, of course, but it makes her reaction a bit easier to understand. I think her ideal home would be with softly spoken people, preferably female, and away from small children. Cliona is fine with most other dogs and 100% fine with cats.

Murray and Clyde | T123

Murray and ClydeMale, Mature, Medium (Foster Home Sort)

Murray and Clyde are two very elderly dogs who have spent all their lives together and who now find themselves at the refuge due to no fault of their own. Their owner, who is British, is ill and has gone into hospital, but hopes to take his dogs back to the UK in 3 months time, so we are looking for a medium term foster home. The two dogs are not very demanding; they would love a small garden and an occasional walk, and this will be far better for them than waiting at the SPA for their return to the UK.

Neymar | T100

Neymar young male malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Neymar arrived with an injured leg, probably due to a road accident, and he underwent his operation at the same time that the star footballer from Paris Saint Germain was injured, hence the name. Neymar is a lovely lad, a malinois or malinois cross who is at that lovely age, when puppies really start to explore the world and cause mischief. Of course his plastercast will keep him out of too much trouble, but as an adult Neymar will need lots of exercise and mental stimulation. If you think he is the boy for you, then please get in touch. And for non-PSG supporters, yes, of course you can change his name!

Lana | T099

Lana young female labrador crossFemale, Young, Medium

Lana has been at the SPA before, she was found as a stray last year and brought in, although she was recognised on Facebook but never collected. Her first home did not work out, as the owner lived in an apartment and worked long hours; in fact it is hard to see why he thought having a dog was a good idea. So it is not really Lana’s fault that she is back; she is just a typical young dog; eager to please, eager to learn and with some basic education. Lana looks like a small and slightly built labrador, she was born in December 2016 and is great on the lead, as well as being fine with other dogs and children.

Gustav | T064

Gustav male labrador spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Gustav and his son Otto are very lucky to be alive. Their owner did a moonlight flit, taking all his posessions with him, but leaving the dogs. Luckily for them he didn’t pay the rent, and when his landlord went round and found the dogs, the alarm was sounded and both dogs arrived at the SPA. Another few days and both would have starved to death. Gustav is a spaniel labrador cross, with beautiful pale colouring and a lovely nature. We will soon have him looking wonderful and he will make a handsome addition to any family! Gustav was born in January 2014.

Bogdan | T062

Bogdan male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Bogdan and his brother Danov were brought in by a woman who claimed to have just found them on her way to Carcassonne. However it was a very wet week, the dogs were bone dry, and having met the dogs, everyone knows that catching them would have been no easy task. Oh, Madam, so that will be you not wanting your two dogs, then? Bogdan is a Breton spaniel who was born in March 2017. He has no lead training and is nervous of people, but he is in the right place to learn all about the world.

Dick | T055

Dick male mature spaniel crossMale, Mature, Medium

Isn’t Dick a lovely boy? He was born in September 2005 and we have no idea what he is doing at the SPA. He arrived very thin, and although initially we thought he had something wrong, the vet has given him a clean bill of health. Perhaps he does not like all the barking. Life for him has started looking up. A shortage of indoor kennel space has meant that Dick is living in the reception area, which he shares with everyone’s favourite (even mine) cat, Cacahouet. So yes, this lovely elderly setter is fine with cats. He loves his home comforts and adored snuggling into his duvet. He seems to be housetrained and would love a quiet spot to spend his last years.

Tatiana | T030

TatinaFemale, Young, Medium

This is not Tatiana’s first time at the SPA. She used to be called Maddie, and as far as we were concerned she was happily homed in August 2016 after spending four months at the refuge. However a phone call from the SPA in Toulouse told us that Tatiana had been found and brought to them, and the phone numbers associated with her microchip were no longer working. So Tatiana is back. She is a fabulous brindle coloured girl, who is now fine with other dogs (although she wasn’t before her last adoption, so she has mellowed!). Tatiana was born in April 2014 and we know that she is a great family pet. She is impeccable on the lead and shares her kennel happily.

Joli | R526

Joli female griffon crossFemale, Young, Medium

Jolie arrived with (R525 Junior) and in an ideal world, these two dogs would be rehomed together. In an ideal world, though, they would not even be at the SPA, they only arrived due to the illness of their owner. Jolie is a stunning griffon cross who was born in January 2014. She is very affectionate and good with other dogs. Like Junior she loves to play and would share her life happily with other dogs.

Griff | R481

Griff young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Grif is the third of the three dogs who was brought to the SPA at the age of two having spent their lives hitherto in a garage as their owner did not want them when they were born. Grif is making slower progress than his siblings, but he too is just about ready for a new home, where, of course, progress will be even quicker. Griff is a bit more griffon-like than his siblings, mainly white and with a lovely wiry beard. He was born in October 2015 and would like a home with another dog and kind, patient owners, please.
