Savanah | R388

savanahFemale, Young, Small

Savannah is a basset fauve de Bretagne, a breed that is very popular, though not necessarily with French people, so maybe this site can give her a hand in finding a home! Savannah was born on January 1st 2016 and is in many ways a typical fauve. She is a bit timid but responds well to love and affection. She is meeting dogs for the first time, and is just learning how to play. Isn’t it a shame that some dogs have never had the chance to enjoy other dogs’ company? Savannah has a lot of life to catch up on, but she is great with people and loved having her fur hand-stripped by a team of volunteers at a recent open day. So not as timid as all that!

Carmen | R395

Carmen female jack russell crossFemale, Young, Small

Little Carmen arrived courtesy of the cages left at the SPA gates and we immediately matched her with a notification for a lost dog (unidentified) on the internet. However messages left on the answer-phone have remained unanswered, so either it is the wrong dog, or now the owners know she is safe at the SPA, they have lost interest. In any case, seeing the condition of Carmen, a new home is probably the best thing. If your dog has red, painful and itchy skin, it is best to see a vet, not just put on a flea collar. Sigh. Carmen is a small sweet black and white jack russell cross who was born in August 2012. She is adorable!

Chappie | R366

Chappie male yorkie cross with a special needMale, Young, Small

Chappie is a lovely little Yorkie cross who was found and brought to the SPA towards the end of July. At first we expected him to be reclaimed, as despite being covered in fleas, and with an unsightly growth on his chin, he looked to be in great heath. However very sadly little Chappie is almost blind. So he is looking for a lovely owner who does not mind a dog with this disability. And Chappie does not let it get the better of him at all. He is very happy and lively and super affectionate. As long as someone is in sight (or maybe within hearing), he is content. If you are looking for an affectionate but lively dog, come and meet him!

Male, Young, Small

Pador is a jagd terrier cross who was born in June 2016 and was brought to the SPA as a stray. Dogs of this breed are well known in France for their feisty characters, they are a bit like Jack Russells, in that they make both great pets as well as superb hunters of small game. It is on the former that we will concentrate, as we are not really fond of hunting as a rule! Pador is of small stature, some 12 kg, and he has wonderful rough fur.

PortoMale, Young, Small

By now you should all be aware of the dogs who arrived at the SPA following a case of dog-hoarding in the local village of Ste Eulalie. Several of the dogs have now been adopted, and Porto too, is ready for his new home. He is a small dog, 5 kg or so, still a bit timid, but gaining in confidence all the time. After a lot of work, Porto is now able to walk on a lead and allows people to stroke him, although he is still a bit nervous with people he does not know. Porto was born in March 2007 and and has been at the SPA since March 2016. It is time he left the SPA and had a family of his own. As a senior dog, Porto will benefit from a reduced adoption fee of just €80, for which he is castrated, vaccinated and microchipped. And make no mistake, small dogs like this can live for a very long time!

Panais |P178

panaisSmall, Young, Male

Here is a little lad that will appeal to a lot of you. Jagd terriers are (as their German name implies) hunting dogs, but they can make great pets too. They are small and feisty, and full of energy, and Panais (Parsnip) is no exception. Initially not able to share his kennel, Panais has become far more sociable and spends time russhing round loose with other dogs while the refuge is shut. He loves cuddles and walks and is full of character.  Panais was born in January 2013 so is a young lad.
