Fudja|R083

Fudja female border collie with 3 legsFemale, Young, Medium

Fudja arrived at the SPA at the beginning of March and was already identified. She is hard to mistake, as she is missing a back leg, but no one appears to be looking for her. Bizarre, really, as anyone who pays for what was obviously an expensive operation must love their dog, or at least have done so at some stage. Fudja gets around just fine. She has the freedom of the refuge in the morning when the gate is shut, where she socialises well with the other dogs and you would hardly notice her “handicap”. A lovely girl, Fudja is a tricoloured border collie who was born in March 2010. She would like a border-savvy home, where she can be as active as a normal dog, just perhaps in shorter bursts!

Kermit|R073

Kermit male spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Why would anyone call a dog Kermit? Well, when a dog lies down like a frog, why not! This lovely spaniel stretches out with his whole belly on the floor, splaying his legs like a spatchcocked bird. Hilarious. Kermit is quite nervous of people before he has met them, but quickly warms to them, rolling round with happiness. He was born in February 2015 and is a truly handsome lad. Dogs of this breed tend to love the outdoors, so an active family would suit him best.

Kalou|R074

KalouMale, Young, Medium

Kalou arrived at the SPA the first time when he was just out of puppyhood as a mistreatment case and was adopted shortly afterwards. Sadly this adoption did not work out, and Kalou is back at the SPA. As with every failed adoption, we know much more about the dog than we did before. We now know that Kalou is not good with cats, and never will be, no matter how hard an owner may try to change his behaviour. However we also know that he is fine with female dogs and is very affectionate with humans. Since he has been back at the SPA, Kalou has proved to be fine on the lead and he is sharing his kennel with a female dog whom he adores. And he is such a handsome boy that we hope he will not have too long to wait before finding his new CAT FREE home. Kalou is a fine-boned long haired black shepherd who was born in December 2014.

Jack|R071

Jack jagd terrierMale, Mature, Medium

If any of you remember lovely Rosie, who was at the SPA this time last year and now happily homed, you will have an idea of what Jack looks like. Jack is smaller than Rosie, but very similar to look at…kind of like a mini black labrador with a stumpy tail. Officially he is a jagd terrier cross, we know this as he arrived already identified. He was already castrated, too, but as he was put in the external boxes when the SPA was open, it seems likely that he was brought in by his owner. Jack was born in July 2008.

Pascoe|R080

PascoeMale, Young, Medium

Pascoe was found in a nearby village, in fact statistically it is the village that brings proportionately more dogs than any other, Limoux. In this case it appears that someone has moved house and accidentally forgotten their dogs. Because Pascoe arrived the same time as Leo, and the first thing Leo did was fall ill with parvovirus, so we know that the dogs were not vaccinated. Pascoe was born in January 2012 and is a grey and black griffon cross. Clearly he is okay with male dogs, and is a lovely lad who is shocked to find himself at the refuge. This is a breed that really appeals to Brits, so let’s try and find a home for lovely Pascoe.

Pollux|R60

Pollux male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Pollux spent the first year of his life attached on a very short chain. Until his owners moved house, leaving him behind, still attached to the chain! Luckily a neighbour spotted him and brought him to the SPA. So life is already tons better for this gentle griffon cross. But it will be even better still once he has a real home! Pollux was born in January 2016, so is a very young dog. Plenty of time ahead of him to forget his rough start, and to be honest although he has not had a nice life, he is nowhere near as timid as some of our griffons. This boy will be just fine!

Suma|R59

Suma female griffon khortalFemale, Young, Medium

Suma is a griffon khortal who was born in February 2013. We have no idea where she has been for the past four years, but she is absolutely petrified with fear. She has to be carried out of her kennel, or, if she is feeling super confident (by her standards) she belly-crawls. She is so gentle, though, and lies trustingly accepting pats. We are looking for an extremely loving, patient family for Suma. Another dog will probably help build her confidence, but is not obligatory. Love love love is what she needs.

Engy|R57

Engy female Brittany SpanielFemale, Young, Medium

Engy arrived at the SPA when her elderly owner went into long term care. As usual there were no family members to take the dog, but on this occasions perhaps because the dog arrived with hefty vets bills. Luckily enough the SPA is there to pick up the pieces. No, they did not make a contribution to the refuge, but such is the state of this sad world we live in. Engy has now been treated for her infection and has made a full recovery. She is a brittany spaniel who was born in May 2009 and who is fine with other dogs. She is used to a lot of love, so is having to adapt to life in a kennel, but we are trying to give her as many cuddles as we can.

Liquorice|R50

Liquorice young maleMale, Young, Medium

Liquorice was adopted immediately after his pound time ended so when he left we had not really got to know him very well. He has now been brought back as not being good with cats. He was tested when he was at the SPA, but at the time he was catatonic with fear, so did not react. We are not sure what happened in his new home, but the couple felt that the cat was in danger. Better safe than sorry! We are now working at the SPA with this lad, trying to increase his confidence. So for now he is one to watch, or maybe one for patient and experienced owners. Liquorice was born in January 2014 and is a very chunky black lab cross.

Calimero|R43

Camilero lemon setter maleMale, Young, Medium

As sometimes happens to our dogs before they arrive at the SPA, Calimero spent some time with a family. This is how we know that he is fine with dogs of both sexes, cats, children and (wait for it) parrots! Well, you never know! In any case, Calimero is a very sweet boy, a lemon setter cross whose date of birth is estimated as January 2013. He arrived very thin, and is definitely not a greedy boy, deferring to the dog with whom he shares his kennel. He is very gentle on the lead, not at all timid, just a bit worn down by the life that he has had so far. Soon all of that will be behind him, quicker still once he is in a new home!
