Black | A021

Black male labrador crossMale, Young, Large


Black was brought to the ScPA for rehoming due to the death of his owner. He is a big lad, and no one in the family was able or willing to take him in. This is incredibly sad for the dog, of course, as he has lost his master and with it his home. He is having to do his grieving from behind bars. Black is officially a labrador cross, but he looks like a big all black rottweiler. Extremely gentle, luckily, as he looks quite imposing at first. Black was born in May 2015, so is in the prime of life. We would love to find him a new home, he has been a loyal companion thus far and his arrival at the ScPA is just bad luck.

Cheyenne | A007

Cheyenne young female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Cheyenne arrived as an unidentified stray, and so far has not realised that life has taken a turn for the worse. She is full of joy, leaping up to play with anyone who comes to see her, really adorably assuming that they are going to take her out ..or home with them, preferably. The vet estimates her age as some 4 years (born in January 2105), and she is in great condition. Sadly for her, Cheyenne is pretty nondescript, “just another” shepherd cross, with greyish brown markings. I have a feeling that this girl is pretty special, though. If you would like more information about Cheyenne, feel free to ask!

Jaffa | A012

jaffa shepherd cross maleMale, Young, Medium

I am reliably informed that Jaffa is at the refuge because his family have bought a pedigree dog and no longer want this crossbreed who has been their companion for the past 4 years. Yes, people really can be this cruel. Perhaps it is a sign of our consumerist society; there is no loyalty, just a constant striving to have the latest status symbol. It is so sad for Jaffa, who has no idea what he has done wrong. Because of course the answer is nothing. Jaffa is a shepherd cross who was born in September 2014. He is fine with other dogs, is fine with children and can be left alone with no difficulties. So a perfect dog. Except he is not a pedigree, of course. I think we have another hidden gem here, guys!

Marvel | A004

Marvel young male spaniel crossMale, Young, Medium

Marvel is a medium sized spaniel cross who was found unidentified and brought to the SPA on the first day the place was open in 2019. So it wasn’t such a good start to the year for this little spaniel cross, was it? Marvel is now sharing his box with another dog, but he would far prefer to have a home again. Because he must have had a home before arriving at the refuge; he was not thin and although a bit nervous, he seems to be happy in the company of people. Let’s make sure this young dog, just one year old at the time of his arrival, does not have too long to wait.

Meline | T667

Melie female young shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

It looks like Meline arrived at the refuge immediately after having had puppies, and she was in an extremely emaciated condition. Whoever dumped her at the SPA gates needs a good talking to, as they clearly have no idea about animal welfare. Or more likely they just don’t care. Meline is fabulous though, and although she is a bit baggy of breast at the moment, she is young and they will soon bounce back!

Roucky | T678

Roucky male beagle crossMale, Young, Medium

Rocuky is only two but the ScPA is already his 4th home. This beagle has been given away from owner to owner on the internet before finally coming to the ScPA, who will finally home him in a responsible manner, rather than just passing him on to whomever will take him, not caring what happens to him as long as he has been got rid of. So what does this dog do that is so bad each time? He runs off from unenclosed gardens, that’s what! You only have to look at this dog’s ears, or read up a bit about the breed to understand that this would be likely. But for some people, as long as a dog is free, it is okay. Poor Roucky.

Banksie | T677

Banksie maleborder collie crossMale, Young, Medium

Six year old Banksie arrived at the refuge on Boxing day morning and we hope that doesn’t mean what we think it might mean. Perhaps he genuinely is lost, although we realise that the chances of him being reclaimed are slim. He is a lovely chap, we are pretty sure he is a border collie cross, and although clearly frustrated at being locked up, he is friendly and smiley. As soon as he comes out of the pound we will have him mixed with other dogs, as he seems to be extremely sociable, and will let you know what he is like on the lead. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this lovely boy, feel free to ask.

Stewey | T657

Stewey male wire haired terrier crossMale, Young, Small

Stewey is a mid brown wire haired dog with more than a bit of fox terrier about him. He arrived in mid December with no identification, and his owners do not appear to be looking for him. Stewey is not the youngest of lads, the vet reckons that he was born in December 2013. However that is no age for a small chap, and Stewey does not appear to have had a hard life! He is sharing his kennel already and has been out on several walks with volunteers. All he is looking for now is a new home!

Oups | T652

Oups young male malinois crossMale, Young, Medium

Oups is a very chunky young lad. He was brought to the refuge by a woman who had been trying to do good, but as is so often the case, had become overwhelmed by the number of dogs she wanted to save, none of whom was adoptable due to the fact that they lived as a pack, with no walks or socialisation. Luckily Oups is young enough to have his life turned around, which is what the ScPA is now attempting to do. At present Oups pulls on the lead and we are not able to get him to share his kennel, but both of these are just a matter of time. And when you see how handsome Oups is, you realise why we are posting him! A boxer malinois cross, Oups is a stunning mix. He was born in July 2017 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Logan | T574

Logan male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Logan arrived at the ScPA when he was an estimated eight months old, and it is clear that he has had no training whatsoever. This is the age when many of our dogs arrive. They are taken on as puppies (given away free, usually) and it is assumed that they will grow into perfect adults with no effort at all. When they reach about a year old they get either too big or too strong; all those niggles that require either dog training school or at least a bit of attention, and lo and behold they are dumped. A black shepherd cross with a white chest, Logan doesn’t look anything special, especially in a country when black male dogs are always at the bottom of the heap for adoptions, but he will be a great dog. He is fine with other dogs, and although he hasn’t been on the lead much he is getting better already. Dogs like Logan are one of the reasons the ScPA is there. We take in many dogs who have just outgrown their usefulness to the families they thought loved them. Let’s show Logan that the best is yet to come.
