Sally| A223

SallyFemale, Young, Small

Sally is a young griffon basset who was found in a nearby village. Like many dogs of her breed she is very nervous of people, although she will not use her teeth to defend herself. At the time of writing she has only recently arrived, and as yet is not sharing her kennel, but as we know that many of you like this breed, we thought we would give you a preview. Sally is three years old, according to the vet’s estimate, and it is possible that she has made her way to the ScPA from a hunt kennel. She will progress quickly at the refuge, we are sure, and as many of you know, these dogs make wonderful companions, although in Sally’s case we would probably recommend that her new family have another dog to show her the way.

Stewey| A117

Stewey male fox terrier crossMale, Young, Small

Oh, what a shame. Stewey had a home and everything seemed to be going so well. The ScPA received photos and videos of him enjoying his new life, and his owners said they loved him. Only they didn’t really, as it turned out. Stewey was not clean in the house overnight. Now there are many ways of dealing with this, but first up is to see a vet and make sure there is no medical reason for it. This is what the family was advised to do, but rather than do so they waited a week to see if things resolved themselves then brought poor Stewey back. I suspect that with a bit of patience and perhaps a bit of crate time, all would have been well. Stewey was adopted in mid February, it was still early days. But some people want instant perfection. Perhaps the company and guidance of another dog in the family will do the job. Stewey is a lovely fox terrier who was born in December 2013. He is fine with other dogs but not cats.

Hermione| A069

Hermione Jack Russell crossFemale, Young, Small

Looking for a young small, and very active dog? Meet Hermione, a tiny jack russell cross who was born just over a year ago. When she arrived at the refuge she was very thin, but that didn’t seem to reduce her energy levels, and now she is back to full strength, she is a real firecracker. Having said that, she does love affection, and if you gather her in your arms, she does a great impression of a lap dog. Quite a wonderful mix! Hermione is very small, not much more than ankle high. She is a great little girl, if you like ‘em small and feisty!

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
  • Will make a lovely family pet
