BELLA – a 1 yr-old German Pointer X ‘something smaller’ girl Weight 13.5 kg Approx d.o.b. 24/6/17

 

Bella was recently taken from Bergerac SPA into care with fosterers, Dan and
Shirley.
Here is what they say about her.

“Bella is a sweet, affectionate and gentle little dog who has settled into
life with us and our two Schnauzers. She is much smaller than she looks in
the photos and weighs about 13.5.kgs. She is a joy to have and deserves to
find a really loving permanent home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have started her training and she now knows how to sit, understands ‘no’ and mostly comes when called. Walking on a lead will need more practice, but as she is still only a year-old, her training will need to be continued. She is clean indoors, which is a great plus!

Bella is a very lively and energetic girl and loves to run around, but indoors she’s quite calm and will play happily with her toys…. she’s very
good at finding one if it’s hidden!
She will carry around shoes etc if left around, but rarely chews them.

Bella has learnt to sleep in a crate and sleeps soundly all through the
night. She travels well in the car, but needs to be restrained or she may
end up on your lap!
As Bella is so lively, a fenced garden is essential and she’ll also need a
daily walk.”

Bella has been chipped, sterilised, vaccinated and tick and worm treated.

If you’d like to meet this lovely young girl, please contact foster carers, Shirley and Dan, on 05 65 37 00 75 or dan-thomas@wanadoo.fr  They are in Saviac, Dept. 46

FRISKETT – a 10 year-old Miniature Pinscher Approx d.o.b. 14/6/10

Meet little Friskett, who we found languishing at the SPA pound. Out he came and into Phoenix foster care!  He’s a delightful little fellow, who needs lots of love and affection, so ideally his new owners should be at home most of the time. He can be left without risk to house and home, though, it’s just that he’s a faithful little dog who adores cuddles and attention.

For his age, he has loads of energy and would be happy to accompany you wherever you go, but he’s basically calm and sweet-tempered. He’s currently living perfectly happily with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, cats, chickens and even a baby!

Friskett is chipped, vaccinated and neutered. He’s also blessed with a good set of pearly-whites, as his teeth have just been properly de-scaled.

Little Friskett is so looking forward to a new start, so if you’d like to meet him, or would just like more details, contact foster carer

BETHANY – a 3 month old Australian Shepherd X girl pup approx d.o.b. 25/4/17

Bethany is a beautiful Australian Shepherd cross and as such she is an active and highly intelligent little dog. Now approximately 12 weeks old, she has had all her vaccinations, is chipped and is ready to start life in the big world.

As per her breed, she will need space and a secure garden. Preferably she will need a family with time to train her and challenge her mentally. She has incredible potential to be an excellent working dog but will equally enjoy an active family life and would be perfect for agility and obedience training.

 

 

 

 

 

 

She will probably be collie size and is as pretty and cute as they come. She is a very happy, sociable girl and loves to play with the other dogs and puppies in the garden as well as be with people. She loves her cuddles also and is very responsive to commands. She obviously enjoys her training and learns quickly and with pleasure.

In short, she has it all. She is just totally delightful!

If you’d like to meet this lovely young girl, please contact foster carer Suzy Tompsett on 05 53 84 83 43 or skydreamer.333@gmail.com  Dept. 47260 Laparade

BILL – 10 year old Beagle X

Currently in Bergerac SPA, BILL is offered for adoption “don libre” and also benefits from the Phoenix Association Veterinary Voucher of 500€ to help finance any future healthcare.

It’s heart-breaking as Bill is just one of so many hound breeds that end up in the SPA, and at 10 years old we doubt he will even get a second glance, especially at this time of the year when the kennels are overcrowded.

Bill’s even got an ID chip, but his owner hasn’t reclaimed him, so he’s now classified as abandoned, which is a difficult position for an older dog to deal with. Initially Bill was rather unsure of his new surroundings at the Refuge, however, he’s settled in and making the best of it.

He’s a handsome dog, fit, alert and in good condition. He easy going and therefore gets along well with all the other dogs in his kennel run. He’s a sociable boy and enjoys human company and stays close by, making handling easy.

We believe Bill deserves our help to give him that little extra advantage of adoption, hence he’s been awarded the Pensioner’s Plan.

DOCK – an 8 yr-old Golden Labrador X boy

Dock had spent far too long – nearly a year – in the Bergerac SPA pound, and his future looked grim. Foster carer Linda Rayworth and her daughter, Sam, took pity on him and he is now safe and sound in their home. Hopefully his long stay ‘behind bars’ will soon become a distant memory

He’s proving to be a calm and laid-back chappie!  He’s well-mannered, eats heartily, but is not greedy, and doesn’t pull on the lead or climb on the furniture. He’s biddable and attentive and you can take food or toys away from him with ease…in fact, he’s a perfect gentleman!

He loves the company of female dogs, but generally doesn’t get on with male dogs. Cats, he likes to chase, so living with a cat would be a no go. He adores humans and is so good-natured, we’re pretty certain he’d be fine with children.

Dock is tattooed, vaccinated and castrated. if you’d like to meet him, please contact Linda or Sam on 05 53 27 03 86  or linda.rayworth1948@gmail.com  Dept. 24520 Lamonzie Montastruc

LOLLYPOP – a tortie and white girl kitten approx d.o.b. 5/4/17

Lollypop was rescued with her sister, Candy, when she was just a week-old. She was due to be euthanized. Her foster carer has lovingly bottle-raised her and she is now ready for adoption.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She’s a beautiful, mottled beige/tan/black with a bit of white. Very well socialised with humans, she’s used to children and other cats and kittens. A cuddly and playful little girl is Lollypop!

If you’d like to meet her,
please  contact Sheelagh on 05 53 54 94 81 (leave a message) or sheerik@wanadoo.fr

Mignon – 1-2 Year Old Male Spitz X

 



True to his name, this little dog really is cute. He is friendly, affectionate and fine with other dogs. He’s not too keen on cats so he would be better placed in a ‘cat- free’ home. He travels well (although best tethered/secured in a vehicle as he doesn’t keep still for a second).

He is learning very quickly and is house trained, but his recall is undeveloped.  To his credit  he is begining to come when called, but a fenced garden would be a good idea to keep him safe. He hasn’t quite learned ‘sit’ yet, just rolls on his back for a tummy tickle instead! And he does love to curl up on somebody’s lap for a cuddle. 
He is a small dog weighing around 5.5 kg.

Mignon is chipped, 1st vaccinated, castrated, wormed, tick and flea treated.

If you’d like to meet this super boy, please contact foster carers, Jackie and Andy, on 05 53 52 06 23 or email them, Jackie.axford@gmail.com for more information. They are in Dept 24888 Vaunac.

JOLIE – a 4 month-old Mixed Breed girl pup, d.o.b. 12.3.17

Jolie, or Lili, as we’re calling her, was born to a Shepherd X Cocker Spaniel. We don’t know who the father is, but judging by the pups, probably a Pointer-type.
She was one of an unwanted litter and we have since had their mother sterilised.

Despite being an ‘accident’, Lili and her brothers and sisters have been well brought-up and well cared-for. A little more independent than her brother Caramel, Lili is nevertheless calm, affectionate, house-trained and biddable. She listens well and obeys quickly.

Happy in a household of other dogs, cats and young children, Lili will be an ideal and adaptable canine companion.

 

Jolie is chipped, vaccinated and de-parasited and if you’d like to meet her,
please  contact Sheelagh on 05 53 54 94 81 (leave a message) or sheerik@wanadoo.fr

CARAMEL – a 4 month-old Mixed Breed boy pup d.o.b. 12.3.17

Caramel is one of an unwanted litter of pups born to a Shepherd X Cocker Spaniel    mum. The father is unknown, but looking at the pups, we think he must have been a      Pointer-type. Phoenix has had the mum sterilised to prevent future ‘accidents’.

He’s a calm, affectionate and very loyal fellow, who is attentive and quick to learn.
Already house-trained, bar the very occasional mishap, he is totally non-dominant and well-balanced.

         

Happy in the company of cats, other dogs and young children, Caramel will be a wonderful companion for any home set-up.

Caramel is chipped, vaccinated and de-parasited and if you’d like to meet him,
please  contact Sheelagh on 05 53 54 94 81 (leave a message) or sheerik@wanadoo.fr

BELLO 122AB – 7 yr old BORDER COLLIE


Currently in Bergerac SPA – SPA conditions apply
I’ve heard that Black and White is the now the IN colour theme! So here I am, Bello a 7 year old Border Collie boy, still with loads of energy for walks and playtime. I am always eager to greet the kind volunteers who walk me when they can but I would dearly love to find a new home as I have missed being with people since my owner died. I love to run and have a back scratch in the grass, and I have buckets of affection to give in return.

I have basic commands and walk well on the lead. I get on with females (I have been castrated) but don’t have much experience with males, although out walking at the SPA I don’t seem to be too bothered. Cats probably wouldn’t be a good idea to begin with.

 

A warm welcome guaranteed to all who come and visit me – so what are you waiting for?

Dogs For Adoption – Bergerac SPA

Many of the more vulnerable dogs (and cats) are taken into Phoenix care from the Bergerac SPA Refuge. Sadly, we don’t have the foster space to be able to accommodate more than a very small percentage.

However, if you would like to adopt directly from the SPA pound, we are happy to join you and assist with the adoption. We may, in certain cases, be able to negotiate the tariff.

We can`t promise, as it depends on available foster-space, but we will also endeavor to rehome any dog adopted directly from the SPA pound if the adoption doesn`t work out. Returning it to the pound would be a difficult decision all round!

Please note that dogs adopted from Bergerac SPA are NOT sterilised unless indicated in the text. Currently, male cats are castrated, but female cats are NOT sterilised.

To view the entire selection of animals available at Bergerac SPA, please visit their website or email: contact@spa24bergerac.org or on Tel 05 53 27 27 50

If you would prefer an English speaking person to accompany you, please contact Jackie Briggs at jackbriggs@outlook.fr

CHABA a 10 year old female Great Dane – Bergerac SPA ID 261AB

 Currently in Bergerac SPA ~ CHABA is offered for adoption “don libre”. She is also a Phoenix Pensioner and  benefits from the Phoenix Association Veterinary Voucher of 500€ to help finance any future healthcare.
CHABA was abandoned along with her companion Drako to the Refuge when their master could no longer care for them. Fortunately, Drako was soon adopted, which of course meant poor old Chaba was left behind without her friend.

 CHABA is very affectionate and loves company; she has been used to living inside and in an outdoor kennel, so a fenced garden is advised.
We believe that she would be best placed in a home without other dogs.
We want to find CHABA a loving home where she receives lots of pampering and can grow old gracefully..

If you would like to meet Chaba with the view of adopting her –
Please contact Bergerac SPA direct,

There are English speaking volunteers that may be available to meet you at the refuge.

Phoenix Pensioner Plan

Stif, our first Pensioner. Sadly,  he has passed  over the Rainbow Bridge.

We at Phoenix hope to encourage people to consider adopting an older dog. It is so sad to see older dogs abandoned or left behind because of family illness or other reasons. Yet these animals have so much to offer, so it really is worth considering an older animal, particularly if you are of a similar age in human/dog years!

Phoenix is aware that an older dog may have special needs and that is why, in April 2016, we introduced the Phoenix Pensioners Plan. We are actively encouraging the adoption of those vulnerable ‘oldies’ that might otherwise be left ‘un-chosen’. Young pups are often seen as being more attractive and are adopted for their youthful bounciness. The middle
 aged and elderly with their soulfull, faithfull, trusting appearances can often get missed. These animals are often (but not necessarily) less energetic than the young pups and may be more suitable to an older humans lifestyle. That is not to say that these animals would not fit into a young family, on the contrary.

Phoenix is committed to protecting the “oldies” and promoting their adoption through the Phoenix Pensioners Scheme which offers a 500€ Veterinary Voucher on their adoption from the SPA in Bergerac.

JESSICA – Australian Shepherd X pup – Adoption in progress

Approx d.o.b. April 26th ’17

One of an unwanted litter taken to the vet to be euthanized at birth, Jessica was bottle-raised and then taken into care by her foster mum, Suzy Tompsett. Here is what Suzy says about young Jess:

“Jessica is a stunning pup in every respect. She is petite, dainty, sweet natured, agile and a total sweetheart. Though tiny, she is confident and out going. She is the last of her litter here but is totally at home with our other litter of larger, boisterous boys. They all adore her and where she leads they follow. She is equally happy with our own four dogs who watch out for her all the time.

As per her breed, she is active and highly intelligent. She loves to play and most especially if it involves a challenge. She is extremely quick to learn and will respond well to appropriate training. Later too, she will excel at agility classes. Though independent, she also loves the company of humans and will curl up with you for a cuddle. I have no hesitation in describing Jessica as a very special little girl who deserves the most special of homes. She will no doubt grow to be the most amazing dog and companion. She will need an active family and plenty of mental stimulation.

For anyone who is prepared to train her appropriately, the rewards will be enormous. A secure fenced garden is essential as if she is bored, she will find her own entertainment.
In short, Jessica is totally adorable and has the whole package!”

Jessica is chipped and vaccinated and if you’d like to meet this lovely young girl, please contact foster carer Suzy Tompsett on 05 53 84 83 43 or skydreamer.333@gmail.com  Dept. 47260 Laparade

Spooky – a 5 month-old Border Collie X girl pup. ADOPTION IN PROGRESS

Sandy (in the photo), who is Spooky’s foster carer, says Spooky is the Perfect Pup!…and who are we I to contradict her?

Spooky was legally removed from an owner who had previously been convicted of maltreating a dog. He had been refused permission to own another, but went and got Spooky anyway. He was reported be the neighbours and Spooky was taken to the SPA, who appealed to Phoenix to take her into foster care.

Fortunately, it seems that Spooky hasn’t suffered in any way. She’s an adorable, well-balanced and well-behaved young girl who is calm, affectionate; playful, but never ‘in your face’.
She’s also house-trained and used to living with cats, other dogs and young children. Quite the Perfect Pooch!

Spooky is chipped, vaccinated and de-parasited. If you would like to meet her please contact foster carer

MARIUS (304AB) a 10 year old male German Sheppard

Currently in Bergerac SPA ~ MARIUS is offered for adoption “don libre”. He also benefits from the Phoenix Association Veterinary Voucher of 500€ to help finance future healthcare.

Marius was abandoned at the Refuge (reason unknown to Phoenix).

At the ripe old age of 10yrs Marius is certainly not a youngster, so he’s in much need of Phoenix finding a loving family so that he can enjoy his retirement.

MARIUS prefers a calm, quiet home, not too much activity or sudden loud noises, because with the age and lack of mobility he becomes a little anxious. ~ So if you have a quiet corner of your home to offer MARIUS, the time and patience he deserves, he will be a devoted companion. Marius isn’t keen on cats so a home without cats would be favourable.

If you would like to meet MARIUS with the view of adopting him Please contact Bergerac SPA direct,

http://www.spa24bergerac.org/animal-304-chien-berger_allemand

Please remember to ask for the Phoenix 500€ veterinary voucher details should the staff forget. There are English speaking volunteers that maybe available to meet you at the refuge.
