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!

Ziggy | T629

Ziggy terrier crossMale, Young, Small


None of us can believe that Ziggy is back again! He was almost the last dog to be adopted in 2018, but is really having bad luck with his adopters, perhaps because some people want a small dog so badly that they have completely unrealistic expectations. Ziggy is a small dog, but he not a bichon or a poodle. He is a terrier cross, he is not going to sit on your lap being stroked all day (lovers of other small breeds, please do not be upset, I love them all, but some are more used to being on laps than others). Ziggy’s family tell us he is not good with other dogs, which we know to be nonsense, as he has always shared fine at the ScPA and is doing so again now. There is nothing wrong with this dog, just with the people who adopted him. Ziggy was born in mid November 2016.

Cuba | A054

Cuba wire haired terrierMale, Young, Small


Oh, I just love this little lad. He is a curly haired fox terrier who is a bit unkempt right now, but who will look amazing once he has been to the groomer. Cuba was born in January 2013, but this is just the vet’s estimate, as he arrived unidentified. One thing is sure, though, he had a home until very recently. He is great on the lead, no pulling at all. If he stops for a sniff you can whistle or call his name and he moves on immediately. He is used to being handled and is great with other dogs. And he is fine with cats too. Cuba is a real gem, and if you want a steady companion dog, he could be your boy!

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
