Nairobi | T202

Nairobi shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Like Chippeur Nairobi was found tied up in the middle of a field, and although neither dog was thin or showed signs of mistreatment, what is being tied up in a field if it is not mistreatment? Nairobi is a very handsome dog, his pretty tricoloured markings really give him that special something that we (and he) hope will attract an adopter very soon. Nairobi is a shepherd cross, he is fine with other dogs and is very receptive to people. His date of birth is estimated as being March 2015, so this lad really is in the prime of life.

Chippeur | T200

Chippeur male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Shepherd cross Chippeur was brought in by a local rescue organisation who found him and his pal tied up in a field in the middle of nowhere. Okay, there might be a good reason for this (I am having trouble thinking of one, admittedly), but if that is the case, then surely the owner would have come to collect his dogs. Neither is underweight and both are sociable and affectionate, so maybe it was just a question of the owner not wanting to bring his dogs in for rehoming in a responsible manner. Chippeur was born in March 2015 and is a lovely dark brindle coloured cross. Chippeur is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

Meg | T199

Meg female border collieFemale, Young, Medium

Border collie Meg was brought into the SPA along with Bob, although she is probably his daughter if the two are in any way related. Her date of birth is estimated as being January 1st 2016, two years younger than Bob. Like Bob she is initially very timid, and this perhaps comes from his determination to protect her; once the two are separated she is far more outgoing and easier on the lead. Meg is a lovely girl who would love a new home in which she can thrive, either as an only dog or with another pal. Like the vast majority of border collies she will need lots of stimulus and activity, as well as lots of love and affection.

Bob | T198

BobMale, Young, Medium

Bob was one of two border collies who were found and brought in by the police having been found in a nearby village (he other one being Meg). It is well known that there is a sort of clandestine breeder of border collies in the vicinity, and it is possible that these two dogs came from there, but as neither was identified on arrival, we will never know. One thing is for sure, though, these dogs are far better off now. Bob is still very nervous of people; a lead is a completely unknown quantity to him, and he will struggle and fight to free himself, but thanks to staff and volunteers, he is improving all the time. Pretty soon he will get over his fears, and border collie lovers know that he will then devote his life to trying to please his new owner, whoever that turns out to be. Bob was born in January 2014 and is castrated identified and vaccinated.

Finka | T195

finka female spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Finka is a young and active spaniel cross who was born in January 2017. That of course is a vet’s estimate, as like so many of our dogs, Finka arrived unidentified. She is a pretty dog who is fine with other dogs, she loves her walks and she loves people. Finka is also fine with cats, which should help her find a new home, as not all dogs of this mix are able to live with felines. Finka would make a great companion for an active family or for anyone an outdoors lifestyle but who also wants a dog by their side for quiet time and cuddles. Although Finka is in the medium category, she only weighs about 15kg, so is the perfect size for you!

Goldy | T161

GoldyFemale, Young, Medium 

We do not know Goldy’s history, but we know that she deserves a really wonderful home. At first glance this young malinois looks like any other pup of this breed. Until you see that she has a deformed jaw, which the vet is sure is due to having been hit or kicked or otherwise abused. Goldy will always look a bit special. But special can be wonderful, and Goldy is certainly that. She was born in August 2017 and is fine with other dogs. Like all pups she will need lots of love, and like all malinois pups she will need lots of exercise and stimulus, as well. This is no couch potato of a dog. The breed is lively and intelligent and not one for first time dog owners.

Cally | T173

CallyFemale, Young, Large 

Cally was adopted from the SPA in January and we thought all was going fine. Apparently not, and once again it is not the fault of the dog. Yes, people’s circumstances change, but if you know that a big change is imminent, it is preferable to wait before adopting a new dog. In this case, the new owner moved in with someone and Cally did not get on with their (female) dog. So Cally is back at the SPA. She is a very attractive girl, young (born in January 2014) and is fine with male dogs. She is quite a chunky lass, as we say, and is suitably boisterous in her play. Attention must be paid with very young children, but apart from that, Cally is perfect. She is not too bad on a lead and would appeal to people who like the staffie types but don’t want to go through all the administrative steps to own a (a-hem) dangerous dog.

Boris | T111

BorisMale, Young, Medium 

I know we shouldn’t have favourites, but Boris is the dog I would take home from the SPA if I had any more room. He is another of the five dogs who were found in a warehouse, and in my opinion he is the best looking and friendliest. He is a crossbreed with unusual markings; plenty of tricloured patches and speckles all over his fur. He is a truly lovely boy, learning to walk on the lead (so a bit enthusiastic), but as Boris is only a year old (DOB March 2017) there is plenty of time for him to learn. He is fine with other dogs, both male and female, and adores human company. He would make a wonderful family pet, either as a sole dog or as a second dog.

Mitch | T109

MitchMale, Young, Medium 

Another of the five dogs found in an old warehouse, Mitch is a fabulous looking shepherd cross. He was born in February 2017, and is extremely well socialised. Mitch is sharing his kennel with another male, but of course we know that all these dogs are used to cohabiting. Mitch is learning to walk on a lead and adores affection. He will make a wonderfully loyal family dog.

Bang | T108

BangMale, Young, Medium 

Bang, who was born in January 2016, was one of five dogs who were found locked up in a warehouse. Apparently their owners did come along to feed them, but the place was in an unimaginable state as it was never cleaned and the dogs had no access to the outside. That is no way for dogs to spend their lives. Bang is the most timid of the pack, but he is gradually gaining confidence at the SPA. He is good with other dogs and although he is only just getting used to the lead, he is already making huge progress. He is a bit difficult with some other dogs, but that will improve with time, we are sure.
