She is home trained and not too boisterous.

MOWGLI is a lovely little spaniel who was born in July 2016. He is in a pound in the north of departement 79. 

Sadly his owner died some weeks ago and the family don’t want to offer Mowgli a warm home. He was living alone with his owner and no other pets so he’s had little interaction with other animals or people. He’s quite shy at the pound and will need patient adoptants to help him discover the world around him and adapt to a new life. He was been well loved by his previous owner and has always had good veterinary care.

If you would like to adopt Mowgli please telephone: 09 77 48 71 43 or contact:


NOVAK, a male Romanian shepherd  is 8 years old. A big calm teddy bear, he is fine with male and female dogs but not with cats.

Novak has certainly got a story to tell. Firstly, he was stuck in a Romanian hellhole for many years. His “master” thought that he was an unlucky dog to have around his flock so he threatened to hang him!

The Mitzuka association saved him and he was handed over to Galia. Then, a year last September, at 6 years old, he arrived in France. He’d already had such a hard time which could have given him behaviour problems, but no, he’s such a sweet, friendly dog. Unfortunately, having just arrived at Galia, a tumor was discovered. The vet said he must have suffered enormously for a long time. During the very painful auscultation, he didn’t flinch (his eyes rolled upwards with the pain) and the vets could not get over his courage and kindness. What sort of life has this poor little lad had to be so tolerant of suffering?

Now, Novak has been operated on, cared for and is now in great form! He gets along very well with his companions. He is very calm and obedient. He’s also very easy to walk! He now needs and is more than deserving of a house and family full of love for him. He really is a special little dog and will make a wonderful companion. Novak is chipped, vaccinated and castrated.

MONZON is a stunning 5 year old mix of Retriever/Dalmatian/Dogue who was abandoned following a family breakup. He has been with us for a while in kennels and is a firm favourite with our volunteer walkers as he’s so easy to walk and is a big softie and he’s well up for kissy face.

MONZON spent a short period of time with a foster family, during which time he behaved impeccably. He was fantastic with the children, obedient, affectionate, calm, good in the house and in the car. His one fault seems to be that he’s over excitable around other animals. His ideal home will be with owners used to big dogs, a large garden with high, secure fencing away from the temptation of other animals. He is OK when he meets other dogs on walks, but needs to be an only pet for the reasons mentioned above.

MONZON has been neutered, micro-chipped, fully vaccinated including rabies so he has a full passport, and has been treated for worms, fleas and ticks. An adoption fee of €150 will be asked for to help towards his medical costs. 

If you would like to adopt Monzon please telephone: 09 77 48 71 43 or contact:
