There are so many dogs we see each week in the refuges. Here are some of our favourites waiting for their forever home. If you are in France and are interested in adopting one of them or have a question, if you are looking for something different or if you would like to join us by volunteering at your local refuge, please get in touch by email info@LAARF.com
Les Potes a Pouf Refuge
Lannemezan 65300, Hautes-Pyrénées
Rustine is rapidly going downhill having been returned to the refuge in remarkably good condition for an old chien de chasse. Lovely girl calm and affectionate with everyone and everything and no trouble – except her breed means her skin and ears suffer in a refuge environment – where she has now also stopped eating She was adopted earlier this year but sadly had to come back as the landlord of the adopter forbade two dogs. Please share. A sofa would be fabulous, but a clean outdoor kennel with some individual attention would also be better than where she is if anyone has space (and we could send a kennel with her pre-cleaned)
Refuge d’Angoumois 16600 Mornac, Poitou-Charentes
Elga is a two-year-old labrador cross and she would be a delightful addition to any family, having only arrived at the refuge a month ago. She is young but she is calm and walks well. She can sit on command and is very willing to try new things and to learn. Elga is good-natured and affectionate, very focused on you and your commands. Poor Elga has a very serious expression and really needs someone to restore her happiness and labrador bounce. She has been housed with a male dog and has not had any problems, though she is untested with other females and with cats and chickens. She is not nervous or shy, but needs a family to show her what love is all about. She is already sterilised.
SPA Limoges 87270 Couzeix, Limousin
NAWAK is an 8 year old, male, Beauceron X and has been at the SPA Limoges since March 2014. Why I have not seen this beautiful dog before is beyond me but I walked him for the first time today. Although he is a big boy he’s very gentle and a pleasure to walk on the lead. He calmly walked past the boxes as other dogs lunged and barked at us and paid no attention to the cats roaming around outside the refuge. He picked up several sticks on our walk and had he been off the lead would have clearly loved to play despite his age. He is a very affectionate and obedient dog, he sits on command and without being prompted he even lifted his front paw in order for me to remove his harness – what a clever boy! Apparently he prefers to spend time outside but would certainly appreciate a loving home and a warm, comfortable bed.
Spa Refuge Animalier Bortois
19110 BORT LES ORGUES, Correze
Lovely Roxy is a very easy going dog, just no trouble at all (other than a good bark when you arrive) and loves a bit of fuss. She gets on with everyone and other dogs, loves her walks and doesn’t pull on the lead. A sweetheart. Poor mite is still recovering from mange, so if you think she’s pretty now, she’s only going to get prettier!
Association Galia, 85200 Fontenay le Comte, Vendee
Akir : Born in 2005 and has been with us at Galia what seems like forever, Arrived from the fourrière after being abandoned.
OK with Male and female dogs. Akir will easily make you take him with you wherever you go!
he is house trained, good in the car, he does not pull on the lead. Good with children and very playful with the whole family! Unfortunately Akir is epileptic and must have treatment of 1 tablet a day to stop the attacks.
He needs to find a home where he can live out his years in comfort and with folks who care..
