Buster| A360

Buster large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Buster was brought in by a couple who pretended to have found him, but who may have just decided that having a dog made it more awkward to go away on holiday. Luckily for Buster it wasn’t long before he found a new home, but sadly after just a couple of weeks he is back again. I am assured that this was not the fault of the dog. Well, to be fair it usually isn’t. Buster is a magnificent dog. Despite his chunky appearance (he is a boxer cross) he is very gentle both on the lead and when playing with other dogs. He shares a kennel just fine. Buster was born in July 2018 and is all ready for his forever home, vaccinated, castrated and identified.

Canelle| A498

Canelle young female malinoisFemale, Young, Large

Canelle is a dog who, together with beauceron cross Mabrouka, was brought to the refuge because her owners did not like her barking. As Canelle is a malinois it is quite likely that her barking came of frustration. Many people underestimate the need these dogs have for stimulation. They love to be occupied and are highly intelligent. It is not by accident that they are the chosen breed of firemen and police throughout much of Europe. Canelle has many of the breed’s traits. She can be a bit snappy towards other dogs, and will need an experienced owner. Canelle was born in February 2016, so is a young, active dog.

Irish| A474

Irish young male springer crossMale, Young, Medium

The ScPA quite often gets dogs who are noted down as being springer spaniel crosses, but it is not often that they look quite this much like a springer spaniel! Isn’t Irish fabulous? With his liver and white markings and the curly hair on his ears, Irish looks very much the part. He was found unidentified in Esperaza, and the vet estimates his age as being some 18 months. Irish is sharing his kennel with another dog, and is ready to leave the refuge all vaccinated, identified and castrated. It would be great to find him a home soon, so please share far and wide for this lovely boy.

Gafarot| A469

Garafot young male terrier crossMale, Young, Small

Depending on whether you see the “before” or “after” photos of Gafarot you will wonder if he is a Chinese crested. That is because since his arrival this young fox terrier cross has been totally shaved! For those of you who don’t know, Gafarot it a local word for grass seed, and this boy was covered in them when he arrived. Shaving his coat was the only thing possible, and he looks much better for it, as well as feeling far more comfortable, of course! If you like a hairy boy then you will need a bit of patience, but Gafarot is a great lad. Well worth a visit, I promise. He was born in January 2011 and is fine with other dogs

Falbala| A467

Falbala young female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Medium

Falbala was adopted briefly but brought back the following day as despite passing the cat test at the refuge, her new family were very nervous about her reaction to their own cat. So perhaps a cat free home would be best, or at least one where Falbala can be separated from any felines until she has settled in. It was such a shame, as this stunning lab cross had already been in kennels for 6 months before her brief taste of freedom. That is a long time for a young dog. Falbala was born in March 2018; she is not even 18 months old! Falbala is good with other dogs, is fine on the lead and will make a fabulous companion. Please give her a chance!

Idylle| A455

Idyll female bull dogFemale, Young, Large

Idylle is an American bulldog, and a magnificent creature! Contrary to what one might assume when looking at pictures of this girl, American bulldogs are not regarded by French law as being a dangerous breed, which means she can be adopted without the need for permits or additional insurance, so if you like a chunky lass, she might be of interest to you. So why is she at the refuge? Well very sadly for her owners, Idylle was unable to cohabit with their other dogs. They did not adopt Idylle as a puppy, (she was born in September 2013) and although they tried to integrate her into their pack, this was just not possible. Whereas most things can be worked through, this is not the case when every “incident” results in injury to either other dogs or the owners. So Idylle is looking for a home with no other animals or small children. She is a wonderful dog, superbly trained and really deserving of a new home.

Sand| A451

Sand male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Sand is one of many medium sized shepherd crosses who arrive at the refuge each month. In some ways this type of dog, along with the black ones, have the most trouble being noticed in a refuge environment. Sand arrived towards the end of August, and is only just starting to make his mark on the refuge. He is sharing his box quite happily with a female, but it is likely that he is fine with male dogs as well. He is quite a timid boy who is gradually gaining in confidence, and having another dog would be good for him at the moment, although of course the ScPA will work on this. Sand was born in August 2018; he was just a year old when he arrived, and we would like him to know the love of a home very soon.

Panda| A434

Panda female cross breedFemale, Young, Medium

No prizes for guessing how Panda got her name! Of course it is not her real name, but as she arrived unidentified, the staff had to choose one for her. Panda was very timid on her arrival and very thin, but is now looking and feeling much better. She was born in August 2013, according to the vet’s estimate, and is fine with other dogs, but as yet cats are an unknown quantity. She is a fabulous tri-coloured shepherd, not too big, not too small. She is wonderful on the lead, no pulling at all and always ready for a pat and a cuddle. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a medium sized, medium aged female!

Goltenk| A445

GoltenkMale, Young, Medium

Believe it or not this young dog was found at the bottom of a well! Yes, Goltenk is very lucky to be alive, so many thanks to the dog walker who heard his barks and managed to get him out and bring him to the refuge. Miraculously this lovely lad was identified, and thanks to this the owner was contacted. It turns out that he had been trying to give his dog away free on the internet, but with no success. I leave it to you to draw your own conclusions. In any case, the end result is that Goltenk is looking for a new home, so let’s see if the ScPA can succeed where leboncoin failed! We are all in favour of responsible homing, so let’s try and help Goltenk on his way to a fabulous new life! He is a small russett coloured crossbred with fur a bit like a ridgeback. He is very friendly and well socialised and just adorable. Far too lovely to finish up down a well, in any case!

Tommy| A417

Tommy male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Anyone who knows about the ongoing love affair between me and Caillou will understand why I love Tommy so much. In fact I suspect that he may have come from the same place as my dog, just from a much more recent litter. Unlike Caillou Tommy doesn’t seem to have been beaten, and is a fabulous dog. He is great on the lead, knows his name and comes to you when called for a pat and a cuddle. He is sharing his box fine and is doing really well. Plus just look at how handsome he is! A dog anyone would be proud to have at their side! Tommy was born in June 2018 and is a shepherd cross, with quite a bit of staffy about him, but no need for papers and insurance!
