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!

Jagger | T590

Male, Mature, Medium

JaggaI cannot count the number of times Jagger has been to the refuge. Each time his owner has come to collect him. However this time, with Jagger aged 11, she has decided to abandon him. This is just disgraceful behaviour. Had she taken this decision when Jagger was younger, his chances of finding a home would have been far better. As it is, we have an 11 year old dog looking for a new family. Still, it could be worse. Jagger is fine with female dogs and some males. He is sharing his kennel at the SCPA with no issues. He is used to being collected by his owner, so we can’t expect him to just transfer his love to the first person who comes to walk him; he needs to settle in and get used to refuge life a bit. However we hope that soon Jagger will be ready for a new home.

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.

Edge | T554

Edge young male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

What a stunning lad! Edge arrived as yet another non-identified stray in mid October, and almost immediately was sharing his box with a less confident dog. Edge was born in October 2017, so is a very young lad. He appears to be a griffon cross, but with his stunning colouring (just look at those eyes!), you could be forgiven for believing him to be at least part Australian shepherd. For his lucky owner, a DNA test will soon reveal all. Edge is a great all rounder and is waiting for you at the SPA Carcassonne.

Nuts | T542

Nuts female border shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Nuts is a very lively and active young girl who is some kind of border collie / shepherd cross. She was brought in by her family who said they no longer had enough time to devote to their dog. Bearing in mind Nuts is only just over a year old, it seems obvious that this is yet another family who should not have got a dog in the first place. She is a lovely young girl, though, very sociable with both humans and dogs, and we are assured that she is great with children. She will be very easy to train, I am sure, and is looking for an active family who is willing to put in some effort to her education. With a relatively small amount of effort Nuts will be a great family dog.

Titou | T533

TitouMale, Young, Medium

Titou is a fabulous hunt type dog who has just arrived at the SCPA having been found straying in a nearby village. He is not identified, but unlike many of our hunt-type arrivals, he is neither thin, or in poor condition. Perhaps someone is looking for him, but just in case, we are showing him to you, just in case this is the dog of your dreams. Titou is some sort of beagle/ pointer cross, who is understandably a bit nervous at finding himself at the refuge, but is by no means terrified of people. He is a great looking lad according to the people who found him, he is fine with other dogs and even cats!
