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! We are now working at the SPA with this lad, trying to increase his confidence. So for now he is one to watch, or maybe one for patient and experienced owners. 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!

Billy|R38

Billy border collieMale, Young, Medium

Billy is a wonderful looking border collie who is looking for a new home because he does not get on with the female dog of a family who tried to save him from coming to the SPA. On the other hand he was fine with their cats, and also fine with children, so he has a lot going for him. Plus he is house-trained, of course. Billy was born in January 2011, so is middle aged as border collies go. He is full of energy, but not as lively as younger dogs of his breed. Billy would like an active family, as like all border collies he needs to keep busy both mentally and physically. Who can offer this lovely boy a home?

Artigo|RD30

ArtigoMale, Young, Medium

What a wonderful looking dog! Hound lovers are bound to fall for this fabulous lad, who is just a year old. We have no idea why Artigo is at the SPA; he was found as a stray in mid January and no one has come to collect him. Like all our recent arrivals, Artigo is living alone, but once his pound time is up, we will mix him and find out more about him. For now all we know is that he is a blue de Gascogne who was born in January 2016, and as a scent hound, he will need an enclosed garden and probably an owner who is either extremely patient or prepared to keep their dog on a lead during walks!

  • A lovely breed

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!

  • Still full of energy

  • Needs a loving family

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.

Tao|PP497

TaoMale, Young, Medium

Border collie Tao has not had the easiest of lives so far. He was brought to the SPA in summer in an emaciated state, so weak he could hardly stand. He was taken home by a volunteer who nurtured him until he was ready to be adopted. His new family loved him, but he kept herding their children and the nipping was a problem. We tried to keep him out of the SPA by finding him another foster, but that did not work out and Tao is now in a kennel. Understandably he has lost a lot of confidence, and we are looking for a family without other dogs. Tao is okay with other dogs, but he is so affectionate that he needs a lot of attention and for now it is best if he doesn’t have to share his master’s love. He is beautifully trained and was born in April 2014. He is vaccinated, castrated and identified.

Lutine| PP341

Lutine Female, Young, Medium

Here is one for the soft hearted. Lutine is a spaniel who arrived in early August 2016. At the time she had no fur and was emaciated. It didn’t take much time (seconds, in fact) for us the SPA to realise that she has leishmaniasis, and since then she has been receiving treatment. She now has fur and has put on weight and is ready for her new home. With regular medication her illness will not progress, but due to the advanced stage at which it was treated, the drugs are quite costly. For this reason the SPA is looking for a long term foster family, so that we can continue to pay for her ongoing vet bills. In this way we hope to find a home for lovely Lutine so that she does not spend her life at the SPA. She was born in 2010 and is very lively and you would never know that she is ill!

Nesquick| PP429

Nesquick  french spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Nesquick is a French spaniel cross who was brought to the SPA in late September. At the time of going to press he has not seen the vet, but he looks to be young and in good health. He is quite a stunner, too, and for people who like long walks and exercise, he will make a great dog.

Caillou | PP309

CaillouCaillou is an incredible dog and is without doubt my favourite dog at the SPA. He arrived in July 2016 aged 6 months and  for several weeks after his arrival he hid in the back of his kennel. We later found out he had been beaten with a shovel on a regular basis; no surprise that he did not trust people. With patience and love he has come out of his shell and has turned into a happy lad, who is buy soaking up everything around him. New things scare him, but he is getting better all the time. I take him to dog school every week, where he is fine with other dogs and loves to play. He walks off the lead, has good obedience skills and is quick to learn. He plays “fetch” (which he mastered in 10 minutes) and would probably excel at agility. Caillou is looking for a training minded family with plenty of love. In return he will be the best dog ever!
