Zebuline | T583

ZebulineFemale, Young, Medium

Zebuline’s owner is well known to the SCPA, as we have played host to many of his dogs over the years. Usually he reclaims them, and usually (like always!) we wish he wouldn’t. Zebuline has a chance for a new life, as he has not come to collect her. It would be great for this stunning cross breed to find a new home. Zebuline was born in December 2017, doubtless the puppy of one of her owners other dogs. She is really beautiful with staffy-like brindle colouring, but there is nothing staffy about her at all. She is sociable and affectionate. Had she not arrived at the ScPA she would doubtless have spent her life having litter after litter of pups who would have been condemned to the same life. So this is a super save all round.

Osky | T620

OskyMale, Young, Medium

When a dog arrives at the SPA too terrified to even move, it causes much pause for thought. And when the dog is little more than a puppy, all the more so. Where has the dog been? What has happened to make a dog almost catatonic with fear at the sight of humans? One thing is for sure, the SPA will set about making sure that all the dog’s experiences from this moment on are positive, and soon we hope that little Osky will be jumping around with happiness when humans come to give him a cuddle. Osky is a spaniel setter cross and we will have more information about him soon.

Marley | T588

MarleyMale, Young, Medium

Years ago someone came to the SPA and asked me to bring them a medium brown dog to adopt. As usual we had several, but the first one I brought out fit the bill and the prospective owner said that seeing any more would cause her indecision and regret, so she named him Mutley, and off they went to live happily ever after. If she came today, the first dog I would show her would be this boy, Marley. He is mid sized, mid brown and, apart from his smiley face, not much to distinguish him from many of the other dogs at the refuge. Dogs like this are easy to overlook, but it is often well worthwhile giving them a second glance. They tend to be great all rounders, and such is the case with Marley! Let me know if you would like more information.

Canon | T574

CanonMale, Young, Medium

Canon was found at the refuge gates one morning, and on his first visit to the vets he was found to have mange. Did his owner know this and decide to get rid of the problem rather than treat his dog? This skin infection is easily cured, but spreading it to the entire refuge would have been a bad idea, so luckily it was caught in time. Canon is a great looking dog, with his shiny black coat and long ears! Definitely a bit of braque in there. And he is very young, little more than a puppy, having been born in March 2018. Come on; this lad has his whole life ahead of him and will make a great family dog!

Nikita | T614

Nikita young femaleFemale, Young, Medium

Nikita arrived via a local vets surgery; she had been found and taken there to be checked for any identification. Lo and behold she was chipped. However phone calls to the number remain unanswered and it seems clear that Nikita is yet another unwanted dog. She is about a year old, and this is the classic time for dogs to come to the SPA…dogs whose owners have acquired them as puppies and made no effort to train them, that is. Nikita appears to be unused to a lead, unused to any kind of basic education. Of course we will start working on that at the refuge, regular walks will help. But Nikita, a gentle and affectionate black lab cross will progress much quicker in a home of her own. Could it be with you?

Douce | T613

DouceFemale, Young, Medium

This dog’s arrival at the refuge is fabulous news. Douce has been living wild and providing us with a regular supply of puppies. Of course everyone loves puppies, and Douce’s babies have been very popular each time, but the cycle had to stop. At last someone managed to close Douce in their garage when she went for food, and at last we have been able to sterilise her and start fattening her up. Living on the streets all her life has not been easy, and Douce will have to take things slowly. She is in the warm of the infirmary and there she will remain until she is strong enough to live outside. In the fullness of time, Douce will be looking for a new home. She is unused to human contact but love and patience will work wonders, as it does with all dogs. She will need an enclosed garden, obviously, and it might be some time before she is ready to come for cuddles, but Douce will make a lovely companion for a hound lover.

Etoile | T612

Etoile female Breton spanielFemale, Young, Medium

There are some dogs who just break your heart when they arrive at the refuge. Etoile is one of them. She is a Breton spaniel who is completely terrified. Her photos show all the classic signs of stress; “whale eye”, drooling etc. What on earth has happened to make this girl like this? Here is another dog for whom coming to the SPA is the best thing to happen. But not the best thing that will happen, because finding a home is better yet! Etoile will be looking for a quiet home with lots of patience and love. She would probably benefit from the presence of another dog, too. Lovers of this breed, in fact lovers of any breed will have their heartstrings pulled by the photos of Etoile, but we promise that she is in good hands.

Regis | T607

regis male lab crossMale, Young, Medium

Regis arrived at the SPA already castrated but not identified. How strange that someone should go to the bother to have a dog castrated but not make sure that he can be reunited with his owner. I do wish that vets would encourage identification during operations, it seems such an obvious thing to do. However be that as it may, Regis is at the SPA, unidentified and now looking for a new home. He is a black lab cross who was born in November 2015 (clearly this is a guess). Regis’s muzzle is going a bit grey, giving him a rather sophisticated appearance, but he is still a young dog, so don’t be fooled. There is lots of life left in this lad! And he is a great dog. He is fine with other dogs, seems to be cat friendly and walks nicely on the lead. He is very responsive to his (new) name, and is a really gentle and well behaved dog. I have a feeling he is going to be one of the ScPA’s hidden gems!

Jasmine | T587

JasmineFemale, Young, Small

Jasmine is a very small black and white fox terrier. She arrived in early November looking very sorry for herself, cold, wet and dirty. And very very scared. When dogs arrive like this we sometimes have trouble taking photographs, as they can be a bit snappy due to fear. However Jasmine was fine, although she did her best to cower from human contact, which is always sad to see. She is now sharing her kennel and so is feeling a bit happier. So far we do not know much about her, apart from that she is not at all good with cats. If you like this breed (classically non shedding), please get in touch.

Tylian | T571

TylianMale, Young, Smal

It is really strange that Tylian has not been either reclaimed or adopted, as he has been at the SCPA since the end of of October, and dogs this tiny are usually snapped up. Tylian is a tiny mid-brown pinscher who arrived unidentified and terrified. He is now sharing his box with another dog and is feeling much happier, but of course finding a home would make him happier still. Tylian was born in January 2017 according to the vet’s estimate, so is a young dog who is full of energy. He is pint-sized and will make a great lap-warmer, just in time for winter!
