Darco | T626

Darco  male Bruno de JuraMale, Young, Medium

Bruno de Jura Darco arrived at the refuge thanks to one of our supporters. Surprisingly perhaps he was identified but his owner does not appear to be looking for him. We are not too upset, as Darco was extremely thin when he arrived. REALLY thin. He is looking tons better now, though, and it is time he found his new home. For those of you who followed the tale of Fynn, Darco is the same breed. But apart from the usual habits of the scent hound, there the resemblence ends. Darco is not at all nervous or shy. He is a big handsome boy and he knows it! He is fine with other dogs, is surprisingly good on the lead (I thought I would be pulled over, but actually the lead was slack the entire time) and he is very cuddly. Darco was born in July 2008, so perhaps he has been abandoned because his hunting days are over. But so are his breeding days now. Hahaha!

Captain | T617

CaptainMale, Young, Medium

Captain is one of my new favourite dogs. He is of medium size, and is a short haired tricoloured dog. The most noticeable thing about him is that one of his back legs has been broken and has healed itself slightly wonky. Sometime he forgets to use it, and although he can walk a long way he is not the quickest lad. He keeps up with a good walking pace, but will not be able to accompany you if you are a jogger. Captain does not pull on the lead. He is good with other dogs and seems fine with cats. And he is hugely affectionate and adorable. I hope his handicap does not put people off; Captain is a great lad who deserves a wonderful home.

Zebuline | T583

ZebulineFemale, Young, Medium

Zebuline’s owner is well known to the SCPA, as we have played host to many of his dogs over the years. Usually he reclaims them, and usually (like always!) we wish he wouldn’t. Zebuline has a chance for a new life, as he has not come to collect her. It would be great for this stunning cross breed to find a new home. Zebuline was born in December 2017, doubtless the puppy of one of her owners other dogs. She is really beautiful with staffy-like brindle colouring, but there is nothing staffy about her at all. She is sociable and affectionate. Had she not arrived at the ScPA she would doubtless have spent her life having litter after litter of pups who would have been condemned to the same life. So this is a super save all round.

Marley | T588

MarleyMale, Young, Medium

Years ago someone came to the SPA and asked me to bring them a medium brown dog to adopt. As usual we had several, but the first one I brought out fit the bill and the prospective owner said that seeing any more would cause her indecision and regret, so she named him Mutley, and off they went to live happily ever after. If she came today, the first dog I would show her would be this boy, Marley. He is mid sized, mid brown and, apart from his smiley face, not much to distinguish him from many of the other dogs at the refuge. Dogs like this are easy to overlook, but it is often well worthwhile giving them a second glance. They tend to be great all rounders, and such is the case with Marley! Let me know if you would like more information.

Douce | T613

DouceFemale, Young, Medium

This dog’s arrival at the refuge is fabulous news. Douce has been living wild and providing us with a regular supply of puppies. Of course everyone loves puppies, and Douce’s babies have been very popular each time, but the cycle had to stop. At last someone managed to close Douce in their garage when she went for food, and at last we have been able to sterilise her and start fattening her up. Living on the streets all her life has not been easy, and Douce will have to take things slowly. She is in the warm of the infirmary and there she will remain until she is strong enough to live outside. In the fullness of time, Douce will be looking for a new home. She is unused to human contact but love and patience will work wonders, as it does with all dogs. She will need an enclosed garden, obviously, and it might be some time before she is ready to come for cuddles, but Douce will make a lovely companion for a hound lover.

Regis | T607

regis male lab crossMale, Young, Medium

Regis arrived at the SPA already castrated but not identified. How strange that someone should go to the bother to have a dog castrated but not make sure that he can be reunited with his owner. I do wish that vets would encourage identification during operations, it seems such an obvious thing to do. However be that as it may, Regis is at the SPA, unidentified and now looking for a new home. He is a black lab cross who was born in November 2015 (clearly this is a guess). Regis’s muzzle is going a bit grey, giving him a rather sophisticated appearance, but he is still a young dog, so don’t be fooled. There is lots of life left in this lad! And he is a great dog. He is fine with other dogs, seems to be cat friendly and walks nicely on the lead. He is very responsive to his (new) name, and is a really gentle and well behaved dog. I have a feeling he is going to be one of the ScPA’s hidden gems!

Pia | T503

Pia female staffie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Pia is a lovely little girl who has had a difficult time so far and is looking for a new home. Unlike the family’s other dog, who had a normal life, with regular walks etc, Pia was kept inside to look fierce and guard the property. Probably because she is small and stocky and looks like a dangerous dog! It is true that Pia has problems with some men, particularly when she first meets them. She is fine with all the male SCPA employees, however, proving that it is just a question of confidence. On the positive side, Pia is fine with other dogs, and she passed the cat test with flying colours. This is a chance to get a staffie type dog with none of the administrative hassle that comes with these breeds here in France. Pia was born in August 2015.

Noisette | T501

Noisette female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Noisette was found at the refuge gates one morning with her puppy, Pirouette. Both dogs had mange and were put in isolation until this infection had been treated. Luckily they had each other, so it was not too bad an experience for them. Now, they are all well and ready for a new home. Noisette is a shepherd cross who seems to be a very calm girl. Recently she escaped from her kennel and her first instinct was to run to the nearest person, who just slipped a lead over her head and gave her a cuddle. Yes, you are right, probably a homeless person’s dog; sociable and well balanced. Her puppy-bearing days are over now, and although she is not quite five years old, Noisette would like a more stable lifestyle than she has had up to now!

Paco | T570

Paco male sharpie shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Paco arrived first at the ScPA when he was little more than a puppy. He was rehomed relatively soon, and we are very upset that now, five years later, he has been brought back as his owners are divorcing. Paco is now a much bigger dog, but still as bizarre looking. Imagine a sharpei with stumpy legs! Paco is fine with other dogs, and although he pulls a bit on the lead, I think it is just enthusiasm. I am not sure his former family took him out very much. Paco was born in April 2015.

Ilona | T529

Ilona bull dog crossFemale, Young, Medium

Ilona is a fabulous white coloured bull terrier who needs a new home fairly urgently. We do not know all the details, but we believe that she has been used for breeding. Coming to the ScPA is really a blessing for her, especially as her owners have made no attempt to find her. What she needs now is a new home. Ilona is wonderful with people, but is a bit reactive to dogs, and she hates cats. So a home as a single dog would be ideal for this lovely girl who was born in May 2013.
