Chupito | T143

ChupitoMale, Young, Small 

Chupito was adopted from the SPA when he was a puppy, back in September last year. He is now coming up to a year old (he was born in May 2017) and finds himself back at the SPA. We don’t know why, as instead of coming to explain and fill in the rehoming questionnaire, Chupito’s owners just took him to the local vet and left him. How nice! Since he has been back with us we have seen that this dog is good with other dogs, he is lively and affectionate and small. In fact when you see him in real life you will be surprised; he is like a mini version of one of the “standard” SPA shepherd crosses. A cute little lad who deserves a better home than the last one he had.

Cappucino | T082

CappucinoMale, Young, Small 

I wish I had discovered Cappucino sooner. He arrived at the SPA in early February but it took a month for me to realise what a fabulous little lad he is. Born in January 2014, this spaniel cross is a ball of love and energy. He is enthusiastic on walks, but happy to stop for a pat or a cuddle and he is fine with other dogs. Cappucino is on the small size, weighing about 15kg, and seems to be a very happy boy, full of joy and fun. Cappucino would make a great family pet, he loves long walks and although he will probably need an enclosed garden, he loves people so will probably stay close. He would love a canine friend, but would be happy as an only dog too, providing he has lots of attention.

Looba | T047

Looba female Brittany spaniel crossFemale, Young, Small

We are reasonably sure that Looba is the mother of Bouba; he sticks to her like glue, and her spaniel colours can be seen in his fur. Looba is a classic looking Breton spaniel though a bit on the small side. She was born in January 2015 according to the vet’s estimate. Unlike her son, Looba arrived unidentified. She is now sterilised and fully vaccinated and ready for her new home. Ideally this would be one where she can have lots of exercise; she is an active little dog. However as well as often being seen on the hunt (as flushers), Breton spaniels make fantastic family pets. You can read about the breed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany_dog.

Bouba | T046

Bouba male teckel crossMale, Young, Small

This tiny dog arrived in January 2018 already identified but with his owner’s phone number no longer in service and no sign of anyone coming to collect him, it is time for Bouba to find a new home. He is a great looking chap; no bigger than a chihuahua, but with a speckly back and spaniel colours. I am pretty sure that a DNA test would show him to be a teckel spaniel cross. Bouba is getting over a nervous start at the SPA, and is starting to lose his reliance on Looba, whom we assume is his mum. Bouba is a year old (born in January 2017) and is ready for an active fun-loving family.

Ernie| R316

Ernie male rottweiler crossMale, Medium, Young

Rottweiler cross Ernie was adopted but brought back in July. He really is not a dog for first-time owners, and that is what his last family was. Despite our advice (we advised them against the adoption, too) and their best intentions, this young couple were just not ready for a dog like Ernie. Born in January 2015, Ernie is still in need of education. Not the usual commands, he has mastered all of them. His difficulty is with authority. He needs a firm hand or he risks running rings round his owner. Not that he bites, he is just a bit unruly. If you like a chunky dog and are an experienced owner, Ernie could be the one for you.

  • Friendly and affectionate if a bit unruly
  • Needs an experienced owner
