Nemo | T250

Nemo young male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Nemo is the kind of dog who, unless he is very lucky, risks spending a long time at the ScPA. Not because there is anything wrong with him; far from it. He is just black and fairly non-descript. A horrid thing to say, perhaps. But the reality is that when people tour a refuge that has about 90 dogs in residence, it is hard to appreciate the ones who have nothing particular to attract attention. But Nemo is well worth a second glance. For a start he is just a baby; he was born in November 2017. Plus he is wonderful with other dogs and fine on the lead. We have no idea as to why he is at the refuge; he arrived unidentified in mid May. Unsurprisingly he is a bit perturbed by his new surroundings, but he is settling in. However we would love him to find a home soon so that life behind bars is soon a distant memory.

Falcor | T242

Falcor young male setterMale, Young, Medium

When Falcor was brought to the SPA for rehoming last week, staff took one look at his eyes and said “Uh-ho”. Because yes, those “goggles” do look very much as if Falcor has leishmaniasis. However not so; he is fine. Already a week later and he was looking much better. The trouble was caused by fleas, with which this lovely boy was infested. Nice owners, eh? Yes, Falcor deserves so much better. He is a fabulous setter who was born in May 2012. And he is fine with other dogs, cats and children! So if you are looking for an easy going family dog, he could be the one for you. He is fully vaccinated, castrated and identified by microchip and is waiting for his new home!

Neiko | T223

Neiko young male crossMale, Young, Large

Neiko was found wandering on the road by a volunteer and brought to the SPA. Apparently he was often seen straying, and whereas he may well have found his way home, no one has come to reclaim, so it seems he was yet another unwanted dog who was left to lead his own life. Neiko was born in September 2017. Little more than a puppy, in actual fact. Neiko is very energetic and loves playing with other dogs. He has had no education at all, so walking him is not easy, but of course at the SPA he is learning fast. Neiko would love a family where he can have more attention and learn even more quickly.

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.

Chippeur | T200

Chippeur male shepherd crossMale, Young, Medium

Shepherd cross Chippeur was brought in by a local rescue organisation who found him and his pal tied up in a field in the middle of nowhere. Okay, there might be a good reason for this (I am having trouble thinking of one, admittedly), but if that is the case, then surely the owner would have come to collect his dogs. Neither is underweight and both are sociable and affectionate, so maybe it was just a question of the owner not wanting to bring his dogs in for rehoming in a responsible manner. Chippeur was born in March 2015 and is a lovely dark borwn and black cross. Chippeur is vaccinated, castrated and identified and his adoption fee is €170.

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.

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.

Chupito | T143

ChupitoMale, Young, Small 

Chupito was adopted from the SPA when he was a puppy, back in September last year. He is now coming up to a year old (he was born in May 2017) and finds himself back at the SPA. We don’t know why, as instead of coming to explain and fill in the rehoming questionnaire, Chupito’s owners just took him to the local vet and left him. How nice! Since he has been back with us we have seen that this dog is good with other dogs, he is lively and affectionate and small. In fact when you see him in real life you will be surprised; he is like a mini version of one of the “standard” SPA shepherd crosses. A cute little lad who deserves a better home than the last one he had.
