Sueño|P210

suenoMedium, Young, Male

This lovely border collie cross arrived at the SPA having been found in a nearby village. He was covered in ticks and was feeling very sorry for himself. However once he had been with us for a day or so and spruced up, he cheered up! Sueño is a very affectionate boy, with incredible amber eyes. His fur is short and almost curly, so I am not sure what he is crossed with, unless it is a teddy bear! Like the majority of borders, Sueño would like a home where he can have plenty of exercise, both mental and physical. He was born in May 2013, so he is a young lad. Let’s get him a home!

Joke |P185

jokeMedium, Young, Male

Joke used to be called Sushi and was adopted from us when he was a puppy. But hold on….what was this? A dog who was adopted from the SPA as a puppy is now tied up at the bottom of a garden? Not acceptable. Joke was brought back to the SPA and however long he has to spend with us before finding his new home (and it could be some time, bearing in mind he is mostly black), at least he will be better off. Joke was born in July 2014 and has had no education, but this can be remedied. He is not a bad dog by any means, and is fine on the lead and house-trained. But he needs more exercise than his family had time to give him. Joke is sharing his kennel with another male and is a great little lad. His white paws might just spare him from the curse of the black dog, too…

Cleo |P183

cleoMedium, Young, Male

Cleo is a lovely young lad, a black and white speckled spaniel whose owners moved to an apartment and didn’t want to take this boy with them. He is a great little chap. Full of fun and energy. At the moment he is by himself in a kennel, but on our walk yesterday he was happily playing with two other males. Cleo was born in March 2014, so is still very young. He is fine with children and not bad on the lead. I suspect that an enclosed garden will be needed, but once he has got rid of some energy, Cleo will make a great companion for long walks or for a family who want a lively playful pet.

Lupa|P140

lupaMedium, Young, Female

Loupa is a female Czech wolf dog cross who was found straying in a nearby village with her brother, Wolf. We will never know if they were the result of an unwanted litter, or if a breeder hoped to cash in on the wolf-craze following the series Game of Thrones. What we DO know is that Loupa is a lovely girl who shares well with other dogs and is so so pretty. She was born in March 2013 and for people with the right lifestyle, she will be a great companion.

Wolf|P139

wolfMedium, Young, Male

Wolf was found with his sister Loupa in a nearby village. Now, we might all have our own opinions on the wisdom of breeding dogs with wolves, and no doubt the series Game of Thrones has something to answer for. But the fact remains that although perhaps not the easiest of dogs, the Czech wolf dog is here to stay. Not for amateurs, however! These dogs are so pretty, but so far the only people who have expressed interest have been living in apartments, and working pretty much full time. We don’t think that is the best place for these dogs. Wolf was born in March 2014 and is fine with other dogs (we separated him from his sister when they arrived). He will be castrated before leaving!

Louise|P137

louiseMedium, Young, Female

Louise is a pretty tousle-haired cross breed with a white chest. She looks the sort of dog who would be easy to home, especially as she is female. But sadly, like her “sister” Thelma, Louise has been living wild. It is going to take some time and a lot of patience to give this dog the confidence that she is currently lacking. She is sharing her box with a more confident dog, (it would have been a mistake to leave her with her sister, as two terrified dogs together find it hard to make progress) and we will look for a loving patient home for this girl.

Thelma|P136

thelmaMedium, Young, Female

Thelma was found with Louise (yes, I know, but you try thinking up names for all the unidentified dogs who arrive) having been found in the village of Saissac. Although looking nothing alike, I think of them as sisters, as they have been straying together and appear inseparable. So what is the first thing we did when they arrived? Why, separate them, of course! Each dog had gone to share a box with a gentle but outgoing male (castrated, of course). It is hoped that Thelma and Louise will soon learn to trust people and be homed. Thelma is a young reddish coated and fine boned Labrador cross. At the moment she is terrified, but she shows no aggression at all. It would be lovely to see her in a home one day, despite the horrid start to life that she has had

Salvador|P131

salvadorMedium, Mature, Male

Oh, gorgeous gorgeous boy! I went into the kennel to take photos of this boy shortly after his arrival, and he stole my heart. A bit like a jagd terrier, but bigger, or a small griffon, this boy has a great cheeky personality. I was calling to him to get him to look at the camera, but that just caused him to come towards me for cuddles. Cue lots of photos of his rear end! Salvador was so named because he looks like a smaller version of our long term resident, Dali. But he is nowhere near as lively. At the time of publication I do not know his age, but he seems to be entering that mature phase when a dog is a sheer joy!

Carl|P119

carlMedium, Young, Male

Carl is a border collie cross (perhaps some griffon?) who was born in March 2013. His owner actually came to collect Carl, but didn’t want to pay to have him identified, so left empty handed. This may sound harsh on our part, but not only is identification a legal obligation, the owner gaily told us that two other of our dogs are in fact puppies of Carl, and that each time he has a litter, they just give the puppies away willy nilly. Far better that Carl stays with us so he can be castrated. He is a handsome boy, very friendly with some training and good with other dogs. The pups at the SPA are both adults and are well-adjusted, happy dogs. But enough is enough, Carl!

Lady Harley|P112

lady harleyMedium, Young, Female

Any of you remember Harley, the small brown mutt who finally found a home thanks to Doglinks after ages at the SPA and several foster homes? Well if you do, you will know why this girl has been called Lady Harley! This fine-boned girl was born in March 2013, and is a lovely fox-like girl. She went straight in to share with another dog and is settling down nicely. Being sort of non-descript and brown she may find it hard to be adopted, but being female is a big plus, as we have so few girls at the SPA
