Barney | T262

Barney male young labrador crossMale, Young, Medium

Barney was brought to the ScPA by the police in Limoux who found this young lad straying. We were immediately contacted by someone who recognised the dog as being the companion of a homeless man who lives in the region. Now often homeless people are fabulous owners and adore their dogs. However we all know that life can change very quickly. Offers of lodgings often preclude dog ownership for example. We have no idea why Barney has not been reclaimed. As the dog of a homeless person, however, he will have a great cv. Dogs who live this kind of life are generally very calm and gentle; they are used to socialising with other people and dogs, and generally walk well without a lead. If Barney turns out to be typical, he will make a wonderful family pet. And at just a year old, this labrador cross has his whole life ahead of him.

Diesel | T261

Diesel pyrenean mountain crossMale, Young, Large

Diesel was brought in by a volunteer who saw him hanging around with the other dogs at the hospital. Unusually, Diesel was identified, so it should have been a simple case of reuniting him with his owner. However….It turns out that his owner had given him away to someone else. As the legal owner, though, he has responsibilities to his dog, so he came to the refuge to discuss Diesel. He got the dog for free from the internet, and has no idea why he did so. He refuses to castrate his dog, who wanders off to seek out female company, and to be honest he doesn’t seem to know much about Diesel at all. So that is another one for the ScPA to rehome. I doubt that it will take long, though. Diesel is stunning and is fine with other dogs and children. We haven’t tested him with cats, but can do so on request. A pyrenean mountain cross, Diesel was born in April 2016, and needless to say he will leave the ScPA castrated, as well as vaccinated and identified.

Lydia | T259

LydiaFemale, Young, Medium

Lydia was signalled to the ScPA facebook page as being attached to a bench near the village of Douzens. In fact later on someone wrote to say that they had witnessed a woman tying the dog up then driving off at top speed. However as Lydia is not identified there is nothing that can be done. Our only option is to keep Lydia for the ten days “pound time” and then find her a new home. Luckily Lydia is lucky on two counts. Firstly she is female (yes, females get adopted far quicker than males, for some reason), and secondly she is very pretty. She is mid gingery-brown colour with a black muzzle, making her very recognisable. Lydia was born in June 2016, so is a young girl who is looking forward to starting her new life out of the refuge.

Google | T257

Google male setter crossMale, Young, Medium

Google is a wonderful setter/border collie cross who was brought to the ScPA for rehoming by his family due to illness. Theirs, not the dog’s, I should add. Google was born in September 2014 and is a stunning lad. He is a bit reactie to male dogs, but fine with female dogs and cats. He is fine on the lead and is a very attentive dog, keen to learn and keen to please. As with all dogs adopted from the ScPA, Google is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

Duchess | T255

Duchess female collie retriever crossFemale, Young, Medium

Oh, here is a DRC favourite. Duchess arrived having been found in a local village as a stray, but she must have had a home until very recently. She is in great shape and is sociable and affectionate. Our best guess is that she is a collie crossed with a golden retriever; she has the pale colour of the latter, but with the former’s features. In any case she is a stunning girl. She is desperate to play with other dogs and although she is a bit strong on the lead, this would be easily dealt with by a no-pull harness. She already has the basics, and being so young (DOB 01.08.17), would be very responsive to training. If you are looking for a young, medium-sized female, look no further!

Stewart | T254

Stewart small male terrierMale, Young, Small

Stewart is the most gorgeous little wire -haired fox terrier imaginable. He was found in a nearby village looking a bit sorry for himself, limping badly and very thin. He is in safe hands now, however, and the ScPA will soon have him back to full strength. He has a sprained foot, but otherwise all is well, luckily for him. And unusually for a dog of this breed, Stewart is fine with other dogs and cats (he spent some time in the cat house while he was recuperating). He loves being held and seems to be very used to humans, so it doesn’t look as if he was a hunt dog. If you like this breed but are not so keen on the feisty side of their nature, Stewart could be the one for you. He was born in January 2012 and is ready for his new home!

Nemo | T250

Nemo young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nemo is the kind of dog who, unless he is very lucky, risks spending a long time at the ScPA. Not because there is anything wrong with him; far from it. He is just black and fairly non-descript. A horrid thing to say, perhaps. But the reality is that when people tour a refuge that has about 90 dogs in residence, it is hard to appreciate the ones who have nothing particular to attract attention. But Nemo is well worth a second glance. For a start he is just a baby; he was born in November 2017. Plus he is wonderful with other dogs and fine on the lead. We have no idea as to why he is at the refuge; he arrived unidentified in mid May. Unsurprisingly he is a bit perturbed by his new surroundings, but he is settling in. However we would love him to find a home soon so that life behind bars is soon a distant memory.

Miss | T247

Miss young female parsons terrierFemale, Young, Small

Miss was brought in by a family who did not have enough time to devote to this little parsons terrier. It is true that this breed (a slightly taller version of the jack russell) is very lively. And Miss is no exception. Take her out on a walk and it is very much full steam ahead. However as she is not particularly heavy (some 12kg) her enthusiasm is not too troublesome. She is fine with children, other dogs and cats, and is a very engaging little dog. We do not often have females of this type at the ScPA, so don’t hang about if you are looking for a lively little companion, either as a single dog or as a playmate for another dog. Active people only need apply. This girl is very fast on her feet!

Chups | T245

Chups female spaniel puppyFemale, Young, Medium

Chups arrived with her sister Chuppa in mid-May as the two remaining pups from an unwanted litter. They are fabulous young girls, with their whole lives ahead of them. If you do not know the Breton spaniel breed, it is worth some research. Although beloved of hunters, in fact this breed make wonderful family pets and we are looking for wonderful families for these two sisters. If you would like to offer Chups (or indeed Chuppa) a home, please get in touch!

Ninja | T231

Ninja young male malinoisMale, Young, Large

Ninja is a malinois cross who was found and brought to the SPA in April 2018. We often have dogs of this breed; they seem to be very popular with people due to their looks, but it is important to do research as to a breed’s characteristics, not just be attracted to their looks. The malinois is not an easy breed. The fact that they are often used by the police and fire services should give you a hint that they are active dogs who need lots of training and stimulation. Taking a dog on without knowing this is foolish to say the least. Ninja is looking for an active home, probably as the sole animal and without young children. Anyone filling these criteria will find themselves with a fabulously loyal and devoted dog.
