Below you will find details of the dogs we have for adoption. These are mainly with Danielle at La Mere aux Betes in Castelnau Montratier, but contact me for more details. Dogs will be chipped, vaccinated, wormed and had flea treatment before adoption and if the dog is not sterilised we can get this done for you at a more reasonable price.

If you do not see a dog who appeals to you, get in touch anyway as we have new dogs coming in regularly and they may not yet be on the website. I can also direct you to other associations who may have just what you want.

Pocker – as I’ve said on many occasions, I don’t choose the names ! – is a Terveuren of one year who is described as, affectionate, faithful, sensitive and timid who needs an owner who knows the breed and will help Pocker to get his confidence back. (Changing the name might be a good start !)  He is fine with other dogs and children, not tested with cats.  Being traiined to walk on a lead which he has noever done.  Needs a fenced in garden or isolated situation.

Three year old Naty is a Cane Corso.  These are very impressionable dogs and Naty is affectionate and calm, not worried about being left alone.  She has been used to living outside and inside – and prefers the latter.  No need for other dogs and cats, she likes to be alone with her humans.

Zak is a big beautiful boy ! A Beauceron/Labrador mix, he is 7 years old and in sparkling health.  He is well behaved, obedient and would make a good guardian but is not aggressive.  Just to see him in the garden would dissuade anyone with dubious intentions.  He loves to play and shared a park with a smaller female dog until she was adopted.  They would have completely mad ten minute games, racing around chasing each other and playing with a ball.  When I saw him I remember I thought that he is just a happy, happy dog with a permanent smile on his face.  He’s not good with cats though, he chases them, so a cat free home is what he needs with a large fenced in garden or isolated situation.

My friend Rowan who is the President of the SPA at Carcassonne, received this ‘letter’ from a lovely lady who had recently lost a much loved dog who had been rescued from the refuge.  Many people say to me when their dog dies, that they could never have another as they cannot stand the pain when the dog goes.  Read this Last Will from a dying dog and once you have put the tissues away, open your heart and home to a rescue dog.lastwill
