Despé | T187

DespeMale, Young, Large

Another puppy who has been returned to the SPA once he has reached his full size, Despé is a shepherd who was adopted from us in September. He would never have been up for adoption originally had his owner, who was looking for him, agreed to have him identified. But she refused, so Despé found a new family. And they, too, have let him down! Confined to a garage, Despé has not had the best time since leaving us. He has clearly had no education, he pulls on the lead and would benefit from a firm hand. Luckily for him he is sociable with both male and female dogs, and although he has lost some of his puppy cuteness, he is still a very handsome and affectionate dog. Despé was born in July 2017 and is a tricolured shepherd cross.

Joplin | T170

JoplinMale, Young, Small 

Joplin is the brother of Janis, but looks nothing like her. Or does he? Try to imagine Janis with short wiry hair, rather than her long tousled fur! Yes, they are the same. So there is most definitely more than a bit of Jack Russell going on here! Joplin is a great little lad; small and lively, affectionate and fine with other dogs. He will make a great addition to any family who likes small feisty dogs.

Goldy | T161

GoldyFemale, Young, Medium 

We do not know Goldy’s history, but we know that she deserves a really wonderful home. At first glance this young malinois looks like any other pup of this breed. Until you see that she has a deformed jaw, which the vet is sure is due to having been hit or kicked or otherwise abused. Goldy will always look a bit special. But special can be wonderful, and Goldy is certainly that. She was born in August 2017 and is fine with other dogs. Like all pups she will need lots of love, and like all malinois pups she will need lots of exercise and stimulus, as well. This is no couch potato of a dog. The breed is lively and intelligent and not one for first time dog owners.

Mirza | T176

MirzaFemale, Young, Medium 

Mirza is a lovely boxer cross who had been living with her family since the age of seven weeks. They got her free on the internet, and of course did not sterilise her, and so she had a litter of pups, who were also given away free. One puppy was kept, and he and his mum, Mirza, were brought to the SPA at the beginning of April. The puppy was homed immediately, and we hope that Mirza will not have too long to wait. She shouldn’t, as she is wonderful. Fine with other dogs, fine with cats and of course she is housetrained. Plus she is very pretty. Who will be lucky enough to adopt this lovely girl who was born in November 2016?

Cally | T173

CallyFemale, Young, Large 

Cally was adopted from the SPA in January and we thought all was going fine. Apparently not, and once again it is not the fault of the dog. Yes, people’s circumstances change, but if you know that a big change is imminent, it is preferable to wait before adopting a new dog. In this case, the new owner moved in with someone and Cally did not get on with their (female) dog. So Cally is back at the SPA. She is a very attractive girl, young (born in January 2014) and is fine with male dogs. She is quite a chunky lass, as we say, and is suitably boisterous in her play. Attention must be paid with very young children, but apart from that, Cally is perfect. She is not too bad on a lead and would appeal to people who like the staffie types but don’t want to go through all the administrative steps to own a (a-hem) dangerous dog.

Boris | T111

BorisMale, Young, Medium 

I know we shouldn’t have favourites, but Boris is the dog I would take home from the SPA if I had any more room. He is another of the five dogs who were found in a warehouse, and in my opinion he is the best looking and friendliest. He is a crossbreed with unusual markings; plenty of tricloured patches and speckles all over his fur. He is a truly lovely boy, learning to walk on the lead (so a bit enthusiastic), but as Boris is only a year old (DOB March 2017) there is plenty of time for him to learn. He is fine with other dogs, both male and female, and adores human company. He would make a wonderful family pet, either as a sole dog or as a second dog.

Athena | T110

AthenaFemale, Young, Medium 

Athena is another of the five dogs who were found in a disused warehouse living in their own filth. One of two females, it is clear that she has had litter upon litter of pups. Luckily for her that is all over now; she is sterilised and busy enjoying finding out what being a young dog should be like. Yes, even in a refuge dogs can have a lot of fun. Athena was born in July 2013 and is a very pretty pointer cross.

Mitch | T109

MitchMale, Young, Medium 

Another of the five dogs found in an old warehouse, Mitch is a fabulous looking shepherd cross. He was born in February 2017, and is extremely well socialised. Mitch is sharing his kennel with another male, but of course we know that all these dogs are used to cohabiting. Mitch is learning to walk on a lead and adores affection. He will make a wonderfully loyal family dog.

Bang | T108

BangMale, Young, Medium 

Bang, who was born in January 2016, was one of five dogs who were found locked up in a warehouse. Apparently their owners did come along to feed them, but the place was in an unimaginable state as it was never cleaned and the dogs had no access to the outside. That is no way for dogs to spend their lives. Bang is the most timid of the pack, but he is gradually gaining confidence at the SPA. He is good with other dogs and although he is only just getting used to the lead, he is already making huge progress. He is a bit difficult with some other dogs, but that will improve with time, we are sure.

Gringo | T167

GringoMale, Young, Small 

Gringo has been to the SPA once before. Just as he was about to leave with a wonderful new family, his old owner showed up. His ownership details were not up to date and so staff had been unable to get hold of him. He took Gringo home and was requested to put his new details onto Icad. Guess what? Yup! This time the pound time came and went, Gringo is now ready to leave. Inevitably the last people who wanted him are no longer looking for a dog, but surely someone will want this little pinscher cross who was born in May 2013.
