Popsy| R410

Popsy young griffon crossFemale, Medium, Young

How could you not love Popsy! A griffon cross who looks to be completely black until you see her in the sunlight, when all her brindle markings show. She is stunning. And adorable, too. Popsy was born in January 2016, so she was only 18 months old when she arrived (unidentified) at the SPA. She is fine with other dogs and great with people too, and she will make a fabulous companion for just about any family. If you like a smaller female and love a scuffy dog, she really is one not to miss!


  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with other dogs
  • Lovely young dog

Comet| R442

Comet female Anglo crossFemale, Medium, Mature

Oh, Comet! What a fabulous looking girl you are! This Anglo cross is a beautiful looking girl who is 7 years old. Is she a hunt dog who has become lost? We will perhaps never know, as like so many of our dogs, she arrived unidentified. Comet shows none of the timidity of a dog who has spent its life in a kennel, however. Comet lies calmly in her kennel watching the world go by. She is very affectionate and as she is so stunning that we hope she will leave soon. Whoever adopts her should have an enclosed garden and be prepared to keep her on the lead if necessary, though. She has a long nose and long ears, and we know what that can mean!

  • Sociable and friendly
  • Good with other dogs
  • Needs an enclosed garden

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?

Billy | R288

 

Billy male tri-coloured retrieverMale, Young, Medium

Poor Billy. He is yet another dog who is at the SPA following the death of his owner. This time, however, Billy was left in his deceased owner’s garden for 6 months, while neighbours took it in turns to feed him. Finally they got fed up with this and one of them dumped him at the SPA gates one night. Nice, eh? They then phoned up to tell us that Billy is good with other dogs but not with cats. This has since been tested at the SPA, and lo and behold, Billy is fine with cats too! He went straight to the vet, who estimated his date of birth as being June 2012, then into a kennel to share happily with another dog. Billy is a fabulous tricoloured setter cross who is very well behaved. On a recent walk with volunteers his lead broke, but Billy stayed with his walkers and returned to the SPA. What a good boy!

Jango|R223

Jango male springer spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

One of our recent adopters was walking his new dog when he came across young Jango, who was clearly lost. So he brought him to the SPA, and at the same time gave us news of how well his own dog was doing! Jango is identified, but the owners details are not up to date, and we cannot track them down. Jango was born in January 2014 and is a springer spaniel cross. He is a great looking lad and we are sure that he will make a great pet for anyone who likes the great outdoors!

Liquorice|R50

Liquorice young maleMale, Young, Medium

Liquorice was adopted immediately after his pound time ended so when he left we had not really got to know him very well. He has now been brought back as not being good with cats. He was tested when he was at the SPA, but at the time he was catatonic with fear, so did not react. We are not sure what happened in his new home, but the couple felt that the cat was in danger. Better safe than sorry! The SPA has done a lot of work to increase his confidence, and Liquorice is now great on the lead, and happily shares his kennel with males or females. Cats are probably best avoided, though. Liquorice was born in January 2014 and is a very chunky black lab cross.

Calimero|R43

Camilero lemon setter maleMale, Young, Medium

As sometimes happens to our dogs before they arrive at the SPA, Calimero spent some time with a family. This is how we know that he is fine with dogs of both sexes, cats, children and (wait for it) parrots! Well, you never know! In any case, Calimero is a very sweet boy, a lemon setter cross whose date of birth is estimated as January 2013. He arrived very thin, and is definitely not a greedy boy, deferring to the dog with whom he shares his kennel. He is very gentle on the lead, not at all timid, just a bit worn down by the life that he has had so far. Soon all of that will be behind him, quicker still once he is in a new home!

Aneth|PP122

AnethFemale, Mature, Medium

Aneth is a complicated dog and will be difficult to home, but that does not mean we should not try! Aneth is an anglo cross who has leischmaniasis, however it is well under control and she takes a tablet a day to keep the disease stabilised. That is not the major issue. This illness is usually enough to put people off, however despite this, Aneth has been adopted and brought back on two separate occasions for being a runner. And not just your average runner, either. Aneth will need a super-enclosed garden if she is to stay in one place. And she disappears on walks, too, so lead only for her. Not everyone’s ideal dog. However she is so adorable and affectionate that perhaps someone would be willing to give her a home. Aneth adores being outside, so if someone has an outside area in a well enclosed garden where she can sleep but have lots of cuddles too, that would probably be ideal. She was born in December 2009 and so although not the youngest of dogs, she is certainly one of the most active!

Flurry|PP267

Flurry female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Flurry has been at the SPA since June 2016, and although she was a bit difficult at first, she soon settled down and is now a great young girl. She has stunning looks, primarily black but with brown highlights, and not only is she fine with male dogs, but she is also wonderful on a lead. Don’t let her near cats, though. Flurry was born in June 2015, so is young and full of energy. She would be a great guard dog, as she will be devoted to her family. If you like long walks and would like some canine companionship, Flurry may be the girl for you.
