Anais| R409

Female border collieFemale, Medium, Young

We have had several new border collies at the SPA recently and Anais is the mother of the four younger dogs. They were all being kept together in the back of a van by someone who presumably had a litter accidentally. Luckily they all made it safely to the SPA where new lives await. As the oldest of the group, Anais may have the hardest job finding a home She was born in August 2012 and is a very pretty girl, with beautiful tricoloured markings and a lovely speckly head. She will need a border savvy family and lots of love!

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with other dogs

Mac| R404

Mac young male shepherd crossMale, Medium, Young

Mac is a great little lad. Just a year old at the time of his arrival at the SPA (date of birth September 2016), he is happy and playful. If you like a dog with rough fur and a beard, but can’t cope with a large griffon, then Mac could be the one for you. He weighs about 20kg, and is about the same height as a springer spaniel, but with a slighter build. He is very affectionate and is a real charmer. He would love a family of his own; a good all-rounder!

Fifi | R420

Fifi young female spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Fifi is a black and white speckled spaniel cross who was left at the SPA gates one day in early September along with a note saying “my name is Fifi, I am six months old and I am not good with cats. Please find me a home as soon as possible”. Oh, okay, then! I am betting that Fifi will be fine with cats, she is just a baby and is full of life. It looks like her former owner is one of those many people who put no effort into a dog and expect it to be perfect. So who wants a young female spaniel cross? Fifi is very energetic and is fine with other dogs.

Bryn | R419

Bryn male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Bryn is a dog who stole my heart immediately. He is a beagle cross who was born in September 2011 who arrived at the SPA with a tatty bit of rope attached to his collar. Unidentified, of course. He craves affection and makes an instant connection with people, doing all his tricks to get them to love him. He will sit, stay, roll on his back, smile…or just look at you in adoration. We have no idea where he has been up till now, but he is great with people. He makes little happy sighs of contentment to show his appreciation of your attention; a complete heart-stealer. It is hard leaving him behind, I can tell you that! Whoever adopts this lad will be very lucky!

Texas | R307

TexasMale, Young, Medium

Please don’t be put off by this lad’s tough looks, he is a real softie. And no, Texas is not a staff, he just looks a bit like one, but he does not fall under the ridiculous French law requiring dogs of this breed to be muzzled in public. Texas was born in January 2013 and we have no idea why he is at the SPA. He was found as a stray at the end of June, in fabulous condition although not identified. That has been dealt with now, of course, and Texas is castrated and vaccinated too. He is a very easy dog, fine with males and females, great with people. He will play “fetch” for hours, happily giving the ball up each time. He doesn’t pull on the lead either. I can’t help feeling that he must have had a good family at one time; I wonder what happened to them?

Jamie | R375

Jamie mature female shepherd crossFemale, Mature, Medium

Jamie is another dog who arrived at the SPA with a note attached to her collar. This time we were thanked for allowing her owner to look after the dogs for so long, but now Jamie is surplus to requirements. At eight years old, and after being adopted as a puppy. Nice eh? There are certainly some odd people out there! Jamie is a lovely lass, friendly with people and sociable with other dogs. She shows no aggression towards cats as far as we can tell. The only thing really counting against her is her age; Jamie was born in January 2009. However she is a pretty shepherd cross with pretty eyes, so we hope she will not have too long to wait.

Poker | R347

poker male setterMale, Young, Medium


Poker is so named because that is how thin he was when he arrived at the SPA at the end of July. Yes, he was thin thin thin, but still full of life and happy to see everyone he meets, so perhaps it was a question of being lost, rather than deliberately starved. In any case, Poker is looking much better now, and is ready for his new home. He is a fabulous grey and white speckled setter who is very affectionate and lively. He is fine with other dogs and adores his walks. Poker would like an active family with lots of outdoor activity and walks. He was born in July 2012 and his adoption fee is €170, for which he is identified, castrated and vaccinated.

Max | R264

Max shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Max is yet another dog who was brought in having been neglected, and another dog who is happy to be at the SPA! Sadly for him, Max looks like many of the other dogs at the SPA, a kind of miscellaneous shepherd cross. However like all our dogs, Max has that certain something that marks him out, and we definitely have several people who love his looks! In fact one of them got as far as taking him home to test with their cats, and Max was absolutely fine with them. Max was born in August 2016 and is a lovely friendly lad.

Kipnak | R371

Kipnik mature husky crossMale, Mature, Medium


Regular readers will know this boy. Several years at the SPA ended with an adoption less than a year ago, but the dream is over. What appeared to be the perfect family turned out not to be such, and so at 13 years old, Kipnak is back. He pulls on the lead slightly more than in the past, but is still an easy dog to walk, he is not quite as good with other dogs as he was before, but we will work on that. What he still is is a lovely husky cross who was born in January 2004 and who never deserved to be at the SPA in the first place, let alone come back a second time. As a senior dog Kipnak’s adoption fee is just €80 or why not ask us about fostering?

Freedom | R368

Freedom male pointer crossMale, Young, Medium


Sometimes a dog arrives and attracts attention for all the wrong reasons. When we first put photos of Freedom on the SPA Facebook page, we had hundreds of comments. The fact is that he was found tied up in a local village, and his collar was so tight that skin had grown around it, meaning that it had to be surgically removed from his neck. Dozens of stitches later, but Freedom is doing wonderfully. He will make a full recovery and although he will probably have to wear a harness rather than a collar in future, that is nothing when you consider what he has gone through. For medical reasons he is alone in his kennel, but we expect to be able to mix him soon. And despite the treatment handed out by his former owners, he is a very affectionate lad. Freedom is a chocolate coloured pointer cross who was born in August 2012 and who is very much looking forward to his new life.
