Mattie | T397

Mattie mature female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium


Mattie is without doubt my new true love, and if I didn’t have a grumpy female at home, I would be doing everything I could to adopt her. Mattie is one of eight (yes, EIGHT!) dogs who were left to fend for themselves when their owner moved house. This really does happen, shocking though it is. Not all of them have made it to safety yet, as traps are being used to capture these poor dogs who have been terrorized by their owners. Not Mattie, however. She was the first to arrive and is amazing. Blind in one eye, Mattie is trusting and affectionate. She comes to her (new) name, licks your face, takes treats gently, wags her whole body with pleasure when people approach. She is an exceptional dog who is steady and calm. She is helping to calm down one of the other dogs who is very skittish and who is now making rapid progress. Mattie deserves a great home. She was born in July 2011 and we want her to only know love from now on.

Balou | T395

Balou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Balou was brought in by one of the refuge’s growing number of cruelty inspectors. This medium sized pale brown dog was spending his life attached by a chain so that he was unable to run away. That is no life for a dog. However now he is at the refuge we understand a bit more why someone with an unenclosed garden would have trouble keeping this boy in. Boy is he a Houdini! He scales fences and can leap really high. So if your garden is not properly enclosed, you should probably forget about this lad. Balou was born in November 2014 and although we have not managed to mix him at the refuge, we are told that he is okay with other dogs.

Bounty | T401

Bounty setter pupMale, Young, Medium


With all the litters of pups arriving, it is sad to see a lone pup arrive and having to go into the pound alone. Bounty is a setter pup who was found at the gates one morning, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in May 2018, so really is a young lad, and we really don’t want him at the refuge any longer than necessary. Can you offer him a home? Setters are active dogs who love the outdoors, but here is a chance to adopt one at a young age so he can benefit from a lifetime of good care.

Cerise | T409

Cerise female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium


Cerise was brought in for rehoming by her owner who was not someone who should have an animal, and who realised that Cerise would be happier elsewhere. So really we don’t know much about her, as her owner did not know her so couldn’t pass on much information. What we have learned so far is that Cerise is nervous of brusque movements, but is gaining in confidence as the days pass. She has never been on a lead, so some work in this area will be required, although of course the staff and volunteers at the refuge will have this sorted pretty soon. She is fine with other dogs and is very pretty, a medium sized black and tan dog with wispy hair and an adorable expression. Cerise was born in July 2016 and will leave the refuge fully vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip

Enok | T411

EnokMale, Young, Medium


Enok is a lovely looking dog who was found by a refuge employee as she arrived one morning. Does he belong to someone nearby (who has so far failed to come to collect him) or was he dumped at the refuge gates at some stage and been straying since? We will probably never find out. When he first arrived he seemed so incredibly passive that we thought there might be something wrong with him, but he was given a clean bill of health by the vet. He soon started perking up, so maybe he was just exhausted after being without proper food and shelter. Enok is making great progress and is fine with other dogs. A really gentle soul. Enok was born in May 2017 and will leave the refuge fully vaccinated, castrated and microchipped.

Sissi | T396

Sissi female griffon crossFemale, Young, Medium


Never have I seen such a quick transformation in a dog. When Sissi arrived she was completely terrorised. I have no idea how the woman who brought her in managed to catch her. She was doing her best to escape from the lead and was unapproachable. Like everyone else I thought it was going to take weeks of patience before Sissi would be ready for a new family. However less than a week later and she was back to being a happy dog, coming for cuddles and nuzzling against anyone who wanted to pat her. She is a tiny bit nervous of men, but nothing to worry about. And Sissi is simply adorable. A small sized black and tan griffon cross, she is slight of build and dainty. She is fine with other dogs and children. A real gem of a dog. Sissi was born in October 2017, so is a very young dog with her whole life ahead of her, and she will make a wonderful family pet.

Marco | T349

Marco border crossMale, Young, Medium


Marco is a stunning white and black border collie / shepherd cross who was brought to the SCPA as a stray in early July. He is fine with other dogs, and is gentle and playful. The vet estimates his date of birth as being in July 2017, so he arrived at the refuge when he was one year old, and just at the start of the summer holidays. He was probably left to fend for himself deliberately. I just hope his former family does not get another puppy to replace him when they are back from their holiday. Marco would be a great friend for a family who like walking, as he is young and active. Why not come along and meet him; he is one of those dogs whose photos don’t do justice; he is magnificent!

Yoshi | T346

Yoshi young male berger crossMale, Young, Medium

We are not quite sure of Yoshi’s history, but we are sure that his future is going to be far better than his past. This gorgeous beige and white shepherd cross was found as a stray, but he had obviously spent most of his life tied up by the back legs. He had managed to escape and the marks to his legs are gradually disappearing. And incredibly this dog bears no ill will to mankind. He is a dream, affectionate and playful, and at under one year old (he was born in September 2017, according to the vet’s estimate), he has a long and happy life ahead of him.

Prosper | T304

Prosper male fauve crossMale, Young, Medium

Oh, what a fabulous boy Prosper is. Lovers of the fauve breed will definitely like this boy. He is not a purebred fauve, but he has all the breed’s usual traits, apart from (we hope) the one that causes these dogs to follow their noses wherever they lead. Propser was found as a stray, so we have no idea where he came from. He was born in June 2013, though, and as he arrived in good condition, he just must have had a home before. However no one is looking for him. Prosper is sharing her kennel with another male, and they get on fine. He is a very easygoing lad who would love another chance

Grisou | T285

Grisou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Grisou arrived along with Annick, having been given up for rehoming by their owner who had too many dogs. The owner was not able to adequately socialise his pack, and we saw this from Grisou’s behaviour when he first arrived. He was extremely timid and very difficult to approach. He showed no sign of aggression, he was just unused to being touched. The refuge staff and volunteers are working hard with him, however, and he is making good progress. And being such a pretty young dog, we hope that he will soon be adopted, and of course once out of the refuge, he will make far quicker progress. Grisou is a speckled black and white crossbreed who is medium sized. He was born in June 2016.
