Barney | T262

Barney male young labrador crossMale, Young, Medium

Barney was brought to the ScPA by the police in Limoux who found this young lad straying. We were immediately contacted by someone who recognised the dog as being the companion of a homeless man who lives in the region. Now often homeless people are fabulous owners and adore their dogs. However we all know that life can change very quickly. Offers of lodgings often preclude dog ownership for example. We have no idea why Barney has not been reclaimed. As the dog of a homeless person, however, he will have a great cv. Dogs who live this kind of life are generally very calm and gentle; they are used to socialising with other people and dogs, and generally walk well without a lead. If Barney turns out to be typical, he will make a wonderful family pet. And at just a year old, this labrador cross has his whole life ahead of him.

Lydia | T259

LydiaFemale, Young, Medium

Lydia was signalled to the ScPA facebook page as being attached to a bench near the village of Douzens. In fact later on someone wrote to say that they had witnessed a woman tying the dog up then driving off at top speed. However as Lydia is not identified there is nothing that can be done. Our only option is to keep Lydia for the ten days “pound time” and then find her a new home. Luckily Lydia is lucky on two counts. Firstly she is female (yes, females get adopted far quicker than males, for some reason), and secondly she is very pretty. She is mid gingery-brown colour with a black muzzle, making her very recognisable. Lydia was born in June 2016, so is a young girl who is looking forward to starting her new life out of the refuge.

Duchess | T255

Duchess female collie retriever crossFemale, Young, Medium

Oh, here is a DRC favourite. Duchess arrived having been found in a local village as a stray, but she must have had a home until very recently. She is in great shape and is sociable and affectionate. Our best guess is that she is a collie crossed with a golden retriever; she has the pale colour of the latter, but with the former’s features. In any case she is a stunning girl. She is desperate to play with other dogs and although she is a bit strong on the lead, this would be easily dealt with by a no-pull harness. She already has the basics, and being so young (DOB 01.08.17), would be very responsive to training. If you are looking for a young, medium-sized female, look no further!

Nemo | T250

Nemo young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nemo is the kind of dog who, unless he is very lucky, risks spending a long time at the ScPA. Not because there is anything wrong with him; far from it. He is just black and fairly non-descript. A horrid thing to say, perhaps. But the reality is that when people tour a refuge that has about 90 dogs in residence, it is hard to appreciate the ones who have nothing particular to attract attention. But Nemo is well worth a second glance. For a start he is just a baby; he was born in November 2017. Plus he is wonderful with other dogs and fine on the lead. We have no idea as to why he is at the refuge; he arrived unidentified in mid May. Unsurprisingly he is a bit perturbed by his new surroundings, but he is settling in. However we would love him to find a home soon so that life behind bars is soon a distant memory.

Chups | T245

Chups female spaniel puppyFemale, Young, Medium

Chups arrived with her sister Chuppa in mid-May as the two remaining pups from an unwanted litter. They are fabulous young girls, with their whole lives ahead of them. If you do not know the Breton spaniel breed, it is worth some research. Although beloved of hunters, in fact this breed make wonderful family pets and we are looking for wonderful families for these two sisters. If you would like to offer Chups (or indeed Chuppa) a home, please get in touch!

Falcor | T242

Falcor young male setterMale, Young, Medium

When Falcor was brought to the SPA for rehoming last week, staff took one look at his eyes and said “Uh-ho”. Because yes, those “goggles” do look very much as if Falcor has leishmaniasis. However not so; he is fine. Already a week later and he was looking much better. The trouble was caused by fleas, with which this lovely boy was infested. Nice owners, eh? Yes, Falcor deserves so much better. He is a fabulous setter who was born in May 2012. And he is fine with other dogs, cats and children! So if you are looking for an easy going family dog, he could be the one for you. He is fully vaccinated, castrated and identified by microchip and is waiting for his new home!

Gus | T243

Gus male Brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Gus was brought to the SPA by his owner, who had just had a minor stroke and no longer feels capable of walking his dog. “Get a dog walker”, we hear you cry. Yes, we thought the same thing, but that is just not how things work round here. Gus is a lovely Brittany Spaniel who was born in October 2011 and who has been in the same home all his life. Apparently he is an excellent hunter, but of course most dogs of this breed are. As well as being excellent family pets. Poor Gus has not had the chance to see much of the world, however; his owner does not know if he is good with other dogs, cats or children. So we need to learn all about him. If you like the look of Gus, though, please feel free to come along and meet him or give us a nudge and we can tell you more!

Tikia | T224

Tikia female crossFemale, Young, Medium

It might strike you when you see the photo of Tikia that she has a lot of staffie in her. Yes, you are right. However luckily for her she does not fall within the measurements which would make her a “dangerous dog”. So anyone can adopt this lovely girl, without any special permits or paperwork. Phew! Tikia arrived already identified, but her owner’s details were not up to date and so far no one has come to reclaim her. Tikia was born in March 2013 and although she is okay with some dogs and can mix with them on walks etc, she would probably be better off as an only dog.

Youki | T204

YoukiMale, Young, Medium

Youki was brought to the SPA by the police as his owner has “gone away” for a while, as we politely say. He will not be back for at least a year, and so has reluctantly asked us to rehome his dog. This is the fairest thing; Youki is a young active dog and will not be happy to wait that long. Plus he cringes when he sees men, so perhaps his owner was not always kind to his dog. Youki is fine with other dogs. He is curly haired lad who seems to have a bit of Bernese Mountain dog about him. He was born in January 2016 and we hope he finds a home soon.

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.
