Oscar| A269

Oscar Male, Young, Medium

The fact that Oscar is at the refuge might make you feel sorry for him. Don’t! This dog was seen straying in a field in Carcassonne (yes, we have fields here, too) and was caught thanks to a volunteer using a trap and lots of patience. Oscar, who was born in March 2018, was in a terrible state and unlucky for him, he was identified. His owner came to collect him, but was persuaded to leave his dog at the refuge to find a better life. Oscar is looking far better already. Gone are all the ticks and fleas, and Oscar is no longer skeletal. He is a stunning dog. Unsurprisingly he is nervous of people; we doubt that he has ever known any human contact or affection before coming to the refuge. But this is something the ScPA is excellent at. Oscar is gradually learning that people can be kind and gentle, and we will ensure that Oscar’s new family show him nothing but love from now on.

Bolide| A371

Bolide male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Bolide is the French word for racing car or meteor, so I am guessing that Bolide is quite a lively boy. We have seen many dogs who look like him at the refuge, nondescript shepherd crosses in a mixture of browns and greys. One thing they have all had in common is that they have almost without exception been wonderfully sociable dogs, with both other dogs and people. Perhaps if they are all distant relatives (many of them have arrived as strays) and they just share some amazing genes. But in any case, I have no doubt that Bolide will make a great companion for anyone looking for a friendly and fun dog. He was born in January 2018 and although he was very thin when he arrived, Bolide is looking better already and will be magnificent when he is back to his normal weight.

Luna| A362

Luna female Parsons terrierFemale, Young, Small

Luna is a Parsons Terrier (essentially a longer legged jack russell) who arrived identified in mid July. Being identified meant that the ScPA had every chance of reuniting this girl with her owners, but of course that is only if they want to be found! Apparently this is not the case, as Luna is now looking for a new home. From what I can make out, the only fault this girl has is that she tries to escape from her kennel whenever the door is open. But who can blame her? Luna is a young, lively dog, and for all we know is used to a lot of exercise. She is four and a half years old, and is a very active dog. We have no idea how she is in a home, but this is no stray! Luna has been a family pet, although sadly one of the many family pets who becomes surplus to requirements.

Nash| A361

Nash male German ShepherdMale, Young, Large

Nash is a very handsome German Shepherd who was born in April 2017. He was found and brought to the refuge at the beginning of July, and whereas he has not been mixed with other dogs yet, he has certainly made plenty of human friends. We know this breed is very popular, so despite the fact that we don’t know Nash very well, we decided to let you see him in the hope that you will want to come and meet him, or perhaps we can answer any questions you might have.

Pegasus| A367

Pegasus male Breton spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Pegasus arrived with Breton spaniel Muse in mid July and although the two dogs look very similar, the vet estimates that Pegasus is some 6 months older than his sister, with a birth date of July 2017. It is all guesswork, however, as neither dog was identified upon arrival. Pegasus is not at all nervous of people and loves a cuddle. He is fine with other dogs, but does not seem to like cats. Breton spaniels make great family pets as well as being great companion dogs for people who like long walks. Sometimes beloved of hunters, they are used more to flush prey than chase it down, so tend to stay close, which is a bonus for anyone who likes to end a walk with their dog, as opposed to standing their screaming their lungs out for hours afterwards!

Muse| A368

Muse Breton spaniel crossFemale, Young, Medium

Muse is yet another Breton spaniel cross. We really do seem to have lots of them at the refuge at the moment. Muse arrived with Pegasus in mid July, and as neither dog was identified we have no idea as to their provenance. However both dogs are full of character, they are affectionate and good with other dogs and love being outdoors. If you like this breed I have to say that these two dogs are particularly pretty, and although they arrived together, they can live separately or with another family dog. Probably not with cats, though. Muse was born in January 2018.

Lya| A318

Lya female border collie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Lya is a border collie cross who arrived at the refuge with her 5 puppies. They have all been adopted and Lya is now waiting for her turn. She is a lovely girl, who was born in April 2015. She is very obedient (her border collie instincts are very strong) and whilst she was looking after her pups in the park did a good impression of a guard dog. In actual fact she is very gentle and is fine with other dogs. She cannot live with cats, however. We would love to find a good home for Lya; this was not her first litter and there is little doubt that had she not come to the ScPA her life would have consisted of having litter after litter. Now her life has changed round completely, but let’s make it better still by finding her a home.

Enny| A355

Enny female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Enny is a young and very sociable young girl who was born in July 2018. We have no idea why she is at the refuge; like so many of the dogs she was brought in as an unidentified stray. Perhaps it was just the inconvenience of having a dog at the start of the holiday season, or maybe she was just too lively for her family. The best thing is clearly to find this fabulous shepherd cross a new home. Enny is shiny and black and is a stunning girl. Especially with those incredible ears! Enny is fine with other dogs and is a stunning lass.

Cash| A328

Cash male spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Gorgeous spaniel Cash arrived with a beagle, Tango, who was adopted very quickly. However he just dusted himself off and went to share with another dog. He is very sociable, as you will have guessed! Cash was born in December 2017, and is a very handsome lad. Typical of his breed, he is lively and active, good with people although initially a bit over-excited. It is this “scattiness” that makes spaniels so appealing to lovers of the breed. They make very good companions on walks, not as much led by their noses as many other breeds and usually quite easy to teach recall due to their closeness to their owners. Cash will be a great family pet for anyone with an active lifestyle.

Keops| A321

Keops male beagleMale, Young, Medium

Keops used to be called Dionysus and will be known to many of you as one of 6 dogs who were left at the refuge gates one morning, all unidentified. He has been adopted twice before, and brought back on both occasions. This lovely beagle who was born in March 2014 needs to be in a family who spends a lot of time at home. He has never been alone, and if left in the garden will escape to seek out human or canine company, and if left indoors will chew furniture. When people are there he is no trouble at all, though. He walks well on the lead and unlike some others from his former pack, is not nervous around people. Keops is a fabulous lad who deserves a new chance with a loving and patient family.
