Goliath | T428

Goliath male douge argentinMale, Young, Large



Goliath is a big and handsome dogue argentin who arrived at the ScPA having been found in a village about an hour’s drive from the refuge. Unable to contact the owner, the police brought Goliath to the refuge with his son (we assume) Samson. Goliath was particularly thin when he arrived, and both dogs were covered in fleas. They were immediately treated, of course, and regular (and good quality) food had turned them back into very handsome dogs. New homes required, methinks! Goliath was born in November 2011, and is a very affectionate dog, covering anyone he meets in big slobbery kisses. If that is your idea of heaven (and it is pretty close to heaven, I have to say!), then please get in touch!

Samson | T429

Samson young male Douge argentineMale, Young, Large


Samson arrived with a dog called Goliath, who we assume is his dad. That being the case, he is a dogue argentin cross and the vet estimates his date of birth as being August 2017. So not fully grown yet. Gulp! We know that lots of you like big dogs, though, and when they are as gentle as this lad, why not? To be honest stepping into the cage to take photos of these two was a bit nerve-wracking, as they are very big dogs. However it was almost death by licking; they are really affectionate and are desperate for human contact. They are getting plenty of that at the ScPA, of course, but both could do with new homes.

Balou | T395

Balou male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium


Balou was brought in by one of the refuge’s growing number of cruelty inspectors. This medium sized pale brown dog was spending his life attached by a chain so that he was unable to run away. That is no life for a dog. However now he is at the refuge we understand a bit more why someone with an unenclosed garden would have trouble keeping this boy in. Boy is he a Houdini! He scales fences and can leap really high. So if your garden is not properly enclosed, you should probably forget about this lad. Balou was born in November 2014 and although we have not managed to mix him at the refuge, we are told that he is okay with other dogs.

Mila | T309

Mila border collie crossFemale, Young, Large


This is Mila’s third time at the SCPA. She is quite a complicated dog, and whereas both her previous adopters were decent enough people, Mila took some time to show her true colours. Truth is that however tolerant she appears to be of other dogs in the short term, this border collie would be far better off as the only dog in the family. She is bright and intelligent, like most borders, but she definitely has her moments. When some people pass her kennel, she is calm and docile, with others she leaps up like an enraged beast. When she finds the right owner she will be the most obedient and devoted dog, but I suspect that it is Mila who will do the choosing. She was born in November 2014 and needs a border experienced home without other animals and where there are no small children or cats. She will make a great dog for the right owner!

Diane | T347

Diane female shepherd crossFemale, Young, Large


Diana is a fabulous girl who we hope does not get overlooked. She is a young shepherd cross, born, according to the vet’s estimate, in December 2017. We have no idea at all why she is at the refuge, apart from the fact that she is a young dog who needs exercise. Diana is fine with other dogs, she shares her kennel very nicely and although she pulls initially she soon settles down on walks. And bearing in mind she was at the SCPA for over two weeks before going out on her first walk, it is hardly surprising that she had some energy to get rid of. The volunteers who walked her said she was just adorable; really attentive and affectionate. Diana will make a wonderful pet for an active family, either as a single dog or as a playmate. She is vaccinated, sterilised and identified by microchip and her adoption fee is €170.

Jax | T365

JaxMale, Young, Large


Jax was abandoned by his owners as they were out all day and, left to his own devices, Jax barked a lot. This annoyed the neighbours, and as there was no solution possible (ah-hem), Jax, a young brindle coloured beauceron, was brought in for rehoming. It is probably the best thing that could have happened to this dog. He has seen nothing of life, and is terrified of his own shadow. Even the noise of his food bowl terrifies him. Poor, poor dog. As yet we have not been able to find him a companion to share with, but we hope to do so soon, as dogs are much happier when they are not alone. And Jax has so much to learn, and this will be done far quicker once he is able to share his kennel. So for the moment Jax is a work in progress, but he is in the right place, as the staff will look after him well, have no fear. Jax was born in October 2016 and is vaccinated, identified and castrated.

Baxter | T278

Baxter large male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Baxter was brought to the SCPA by a father and his daughter who claimed to have found him and kept him for a week before realising that a big dog like this was not suited to apartment living. Yeah, right. So when they said “found” they meant found on the internet, I guess. Still, there is no other option than to find this big boy a new home. Yes, Baxter is a big dog. Well, only 40kg or so, but as he is full of enthusiasm, it makes him quite a handful. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body, sharing his kennel quite happily, and we know from his former “not-family” that he is fine with children, but he will need strong handling. Baxter is a stocky short haired cross who was born in January 2017.

Andy | T323

AndyMale, Young, Large

Andy is at the ScPA due to his owner’s being in hospital. It is always sad when dogs arrive like this; they are still very much loved, but health issues have forced a separation. Andy is still a very young dog, so with any luck he can find a new home soon and have a fresh start with someone who loves him just as much. He is a magnificent lad, a big shepherd cross, probably with some husky. He really is stunning. Andy is fine with other dogs, and although he would probably act as a good burglar deterrent, that is due to his imposing size, rather than his gentle nature. Andy was born in April 2015 and is castrated, vaccinated and identified.

Tikia | T224

Tikia female crossFemale, Young, Medium

It might strike you when you see the photo of Tikia that she has a lot of staffie in her. Yes, you are right. However luckily for her she does not fall within the measurements which would make her a “dangerous dog”. So anyone can adopt this lovely girl, without any special permits or paperwork. Phew! Tikia arrived already identified, but her owner’s details were not up to date and so far no one has come to reclaim her. Tikia was born in March 2013 and although she is okay with some dogs and can mix with them on walks etc, she would probably be better off as an only dog.

Nairobi | T202

Nairobi shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Like Chippeur Nairobi was found tied up in the middle of a field, and although neither dog was thin or showed signs of mistreatment, what is being tied up in a field if it is not mistreatment? Nairobi is a very handsome dog, his pretty tricoloured markings really give him that special something that we (and he) hope will attract an adopter very soon. Nairobi is a shepherd cross, he is fine with other dogs and is very receptive to people. His date of birth is estimated as being March 2015, so this lad really is in the prime of life.
