Fax | R312

FaxMale, Young, Medium

Fax is the kind of dog who in many ways epitomises what the SPA is about. Found as a stray at the age of 18 months, Fax has clearly had no human contact at all; or at least not positive contact. He is absolutely terrified and will completely freeze whenever he is touched. He would rather just be left alone, as that way at least nothing bad can happen. This is really sad to see, and of course we are all doing our best to show him how wonderful life can be. Fax will walk on a lead, particularly if there is another dog nearby. In fact he will probably need a canine mentor in his new home in order to make any real progress. If you have a dog already and/or lots of patience, Fax will be a very rewarding friend.

Taoni | R303

Tanoi female border collie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Taoni is a border collie who was found and brought to the refuge, so sadly we don’t know anything about her history. However from her behaviour so far, we guess that she has had quite a sheltered life, as although hugely affectionate, she remains fairly timid at first. Taoni was born in June 2012, and is a little bit overweight, so wherever she was before the SPA, she was well fed. She is fine with other dogs, does not pull on the lead, and in fact when two walkers accidentally let go of her lead, her only thought was to return to the refuge, where she sat down outside her kennel waiting for them to let her back in. Taoni will make a great family pet, she is absolutely adorable!

Nozete | R300

Nozete male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nozete is a very lucky boy. He escaped from a hunt kennel and thanks to a passer by was brought to the SPA by the police. They gave strict instructions to not return him to his owner, and seeing the condition of this dog, we can see why. Extremely thin and world weary, poor Nozete had 5 huge grass seeds removed from his ears and nose. All of them were deeply embedded and had obviously been causing him enormous pain for some time. Keeping dogs in kennels often means that their owners do not notice illnesses etc. But not feeding dogs either pushes this from neglect to mistreatment (which are two sides of the same coin). Nozete is a young lad, he was born in May 2012. Let’s make sure he has a wonderful life from now on.

Lili | R299

Lili female fauve de BretagneFemale, Young, Medium

Lili is a griffon Fauve de Bretagne who was abandoned at the SPA because her owner has a new girlfriend who does not like dogs. I wonder how long that relationship will last? Not as long as the love of a dog, that’s for sure! Lili was born in May 2015, and is a lovely girl. She is fine with children and dogs, however she does not like cats. Some dogs of this breed can be shy and nervous, but Lili is very outgoing and affectionate, and although she lived outside most of the time (sigh), she is used to being handled and loves people.

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!

Kelly | R274

Kelly female Brittany spanielFemale, Young, Medium

Some of you may recognise Kelly. She was brought to the SPA earlier this year when her owner decided he was too old to keep this young and active dog. Her next adopters had cats and although Kelly showed no aggression at all towards them, the cats were not spending as much time at home as before. So Kelly’s family decided to bring her back. No one had become fond enough of her to keep her, and as she, like all dogs, deserves love, perhaps ultimately this is the best thing. Kelly is pretty Brittany spaniel /setter cross who was born in November 2015.

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!

Badou|R168

Badou male podenco crossMale, Young, Medium

Some of you may remember Badou. He arrived with a badly injured front leg and spent a long time recuperating at the SPA before being adopted. During this time we found him to be a wonderful sociable dog and his adopter found the same. His only “fault” was his fear of cars (understandable bearing in mind that he had been run over by one, and was found struggling to escape the other vehicles along the road). His adopter did not feel able to deal with this issue, and so Badou is back at the SPA. He is a young podenco cross who was born in January 2016. A fabulous dog who is great with children and dogs of both sexes but not with cats!

Kalou|R074

KalouMale, Young, Medium

Kalou arrived at the SPA the first time when he was just out of puppyhood as a mistreatment case and was adopted shortly afterwards. Sadly this adoption did not work out, and Kalou is back at the SPA. As with every failed adoption, we know much more about the dog than we did before. We now know that Kalou is not good with cats, and never will be, no matter how hard an owner may try to change his behaviour. However we also know that he is fine with female dogs and is very affectionate with humans. Since he has been back at the SPA, Kalou has proved to be fine on the lead and he is sharing his kennel with a female dog whom he adores. And he is such a handsome boy that we hope he will not have too long to wait before finding his new CAT FREE home. Kalou is a fine-boned long haired black shepherd who was born in December 2014.

Jack|R071

Jack jagd terrierMale, Mature, Medium

If any of you remember lovely Rosie, who was at the SPA this time last year and now happily homed, you will have an idea of what Jack looks like. Jack is smaller than Rosie, but very similar to look at…kind of like a mini black labrador with a stumpy tail. Officially he is a jagd terrier cross, we know this as he arrived already identified. He was already castrated, too, but as he was put in the external boxes when the SPA was open, it seems likely that he was brought in by his owner. Jack was born in July 2008.
