Rex|R169

rex male brittany spanielMale, Young, Medium

Rex was brought in by his owner as he felt he was too old to look after his dog properly. However Rex is in no way a difficult dog and although he would probably like more exercise than he was getting, he seems very happy with whatever life brings him. Rex is a seven year old brittany spaniel (date of birth April 2010) who has fabulous body language and who is wonderful with other dogs. He is not a “runner”, and like other dogs of his breed, is a great “all rounder”. Brittanies are very loving family pets as well as often being used for hunting. Rex would like a new family with a garden and maybe another dog to play with too.

Badou|R168

Badou male podenco crossMale, Young, Medium

Some of you may remember Badou. He arrived with a badly injured front leg and spent a long time recuperating at the SPA before being adopted. During this time we found him to be a wonderful sociable dog and his adopter found the same. His only “fault” was his fear of cars (understandable bearing in mind that he had been run over by one, and was found struggling to escape the other vehicles along the road). His adopter did not feel able to deal with this issue, and so Badou is back at the SPA. He is a young podenco cross who was born in January 2016. A fabulous dog who is great with children and dogs of both sexes but not with cats!

Oscar|R167

Oscar male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Oscar’s owner was unable to manage this fairly large strong dog as well as her other animals, so Oscar is at the SPA looking for a new home. He is a shepherd cross with a small griffon-like beard who was born in February 2016. Oscar is good with other dogs but has a tendency to be a bit dominant

Lasko|R161

Lasko young male jack russell crossMale, Young, Small


Lasko is a jack russell cross who was brought to the SPA by a concerned neighbour who saw this dog was tied up a lot. In fact his owners had tried to find him a new home, (free via the internet) and this had not worked out, with the owners just leaving their new dog tied up alone. Lasko is a great lad, fine with dogs of both sexes and not interested in escaping to go wandering. If you are looking for a small lively companion, Lasko could be the boy for you. He was born in April 2015, and is ready for his new home!

Pogo|R154

PogoMale, Young, Small


Pogo is back at the SPA following another failed adoption. I do wish people would reflect a bit more before adopting a dog. This time it was a case of the husband not discussing the adoption with his wife, and so although initially all was well, as soon as the first “problem” cropped up, the wife put her foot down and Pogo was dumped again. The “problem” was that Pogo tried to escape from the garden, meaning that he is “only good for hunting”. No, not true, he just didn’t like being left alone. So what we know is that Pogo was born in May 2015. He is a black and grey brittany spaniel who is a bit nervous around young children (but fine with older ones), he is fine with other dogs and cats. And his next home simply MUST be his last.

Kalou|R074

KalouMale, Young, Medium

Kalou arrived at the SPA the first time when he was just out of puppyhood as a mistreatment case and was adopted shortly afterwards. Sadly this adoption did not work out, and Kalou is back at the SPA. As with every failed adoption, we know much more about the dog than we did before. We now know that Kalou is not good with cats, and never will be, no matter how hard an owner may try to change his behaviour. However we also know that he is fine with female dogs and is very affectionate with humans. Since he has been back at the SPA, Kalou has proved to be fine on the lead and he is sharing his kennel with a female dog whom he adores. And he is such a handsome boy that we hope he will not have too long to wait before finding his new CAT FREE home. Kalou is a fine-boned long haired black shepherd who was born in December 2014.

Fadista|R65

Fadista male large shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Again, it was sad to see Fadista back at the SPA. He was adopted recently after arriving last summer weighing in at less than half of his normal body weight. The SPA brought him back to health and he is a magnificent beast. The problem with this being that lots of people are scared of dogs of this size, and such was the case with the people in the village where his adopter lives. So in the interest of neighbourly relations, Fadista is back. He is a huge-headed cross breed (no permits required) who was born in August 2014. He is fine with other dogs and often has the run of the SPA when the gates are closed in the mornings. Everyone’s favourite gentle giant!

Tyson|R64

Tyson large white male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

It is very sad to see Tyson back at the SPA. He was abandoned on February 8th, which by coincidence is exactly one year to the day since he was brought in last time. Tyson was adopted in July and the couple who took him were just not right for him. I would say he was not right for them, but that implies he was at fault, whereas this is more a case of young people taking bad advice. What kind of behaviourist tells an owner that the dog is “insane” and will never be happy inside a house? In any case, Tyson deserves better, so we will do better at finding him the right home next time. He is a big white shepherd who was born in February 2012. He is fabulous on the lead and is a total pleasure to walk. Although he shares his kennel at the SPA he tends to be a bit more exclusive out of the SPA, so perhaps he would be happier as an only dog.

Pollux|R60

Pollux male griffon crossMale, Young, Medium

Pollux spent the first year of his life attached on a very short chain. Until his owners moved house, leaving him behind, still attached to the chain! Luckily a neighbour spotted him and brought him to the SPA. So life is already tons better for this gentle griffon cross. But it will be even better still once he has a real home! Pollux was born in January 2016, so is a very young dog. Plenty of time ahead of him to forget his rough start, and to be honest although he has not had a nice life, he is nowhere near as timid as some of our griffons. This boy will be just fine!

Liquorice|R50

Liquorice young maleMale, Young, Medium

Liquorice was adopted immediately after his pound time ended so when he left we had not really got to know him very well. He has now been brought back as not being good with cats. He was tested when he was at the SPA, but at the time he was catatonic with fear, so did not react. We are not sure what happened in his new home, but the couple felt that the cat was in danger. Better safe than sorry! We are now working at the SPA with this lad, trying to increase his confidence. So for now he is one to watch, or maybe one for patient and experienced owners. Liquorice was born in January 2014 and is a very chunky black lab cross.
