Pierre

Pierre

Every time I post a dog they are either old, needy, stunning, young, lonely, bouncy, joyful, sad – the list is endless, and in fact for all refuge dogs true in some way for all of them. They are not in refuge for a holiday, though for many it must feel like it in comparison to the lives they have previously endured. Here I have a little special that covers a few of the above.

Pierre is older, he is lonely and needy. This little lad has been with us for 2 years and he is about 10 years old. Pierre is in the Grand Commune with lots of big dogs and he is fine. However, because he is in there he does not get out for walks or cuddles. He has room to run about but as you can see he isn’t doing a lot of running. He needs saving from this lifestyle, which is neither comfortable nor good for his ‘big bones’. He’s needy that’s for sure.

Louna

Louna

This beautiful face belongs to the most beautiful soul, Louna. Louna is an 11 year old Malinois and the most gentle and loving of dogs. She hasn’t had a great life and the refuge is certainly the best she has known but she deserves better. Louna really is tender, easy on the lead, non demanding and fine with other dogs. We don’t know about cats. What this lady needs is a cosy corner and a little comfort and somebody who loves her. She will demand little else and give all she has. Five minutes with her and you are in love.

Rowan

Rowan

Rowan is a boduguera x, estimated to be three years old, but we all think he’s a little younger than that.

He is an easy house guest who sleeps well at night, is calm in the house, happy to snooze or amuse himself if he has a toy to ‘kill’ and is affectionate and friendly with people and other dogs.

Rowan is an energetic boy so another active dog in the home, as well as space to have a good run would be good for him, but not essential as he can happily amuse himself.

We don’t know what he’s like around cats yet, although he had a good growl at the ceramic cat in his foster home!

All in all, Rowan’s a beautifully natured boy, currently in foster in South of dept 79.   Please contact us through the En Route website www.assoenroute.com or via email at henri@assoenroute.com in the first instance.

Zara comes identified, vaccinated, sterilized, dewormed & treated for ticks and fleas. If you have space in your heart and space in your home then look no further. Adoption fee 220 euros.

Nancy

Nancy

Nancy the Nose is a beautiful girl. She is house trained and walks well on the lead using a harness. She is gentle and affectionate and particularly loves a lengthy morning cuddle. She loves people, is good with children.and is good with other dogs. She’s a very good girl when left with another dog, but hasn’t been left totally alone yet. She’s still getting used to the rules and is a youngster, so has been caught chewing a slipper and pinching the odd sock or glove.
Nancy’s only issues are cats and escaping, or escaping to chase a cat, so she needs a secure garden and a cat free home.
Hounds make wonderful, gentle loyal family members and we urge you to consider including one in your home, especially this one.
Nancy is currently in foster in dept 79 near Sauzé-Vaussais.

Mollie

Mollie

MOLLIE is a female Anglo – as you can see an absolute beauty, and only 11 months old.  Mollie is not a large dog; she’s very fine boned and although will be a little taller she’s not destined to be a big girl.  She’s still very timid and nervous but is improving all the time and walks like a little angel on the lead; she’s a gentle, tender soul. 

Being still a baby and having been with us a few months, Mollie still needs to learn etiquette of course, but that just needs tlc and patience because she really is a sweet-natured willing soul.   A secure garden is a must and Mollie would love another doggy pal; they give her confidence.

Vosko

Vosko

Vosko is a fantastic house guest in his foster home. He’s clean and calm, knows his commands and is super affectionate with his foster mum and other humans. Vosko needs is an experienced home with a well enclosed garden so he can run free and burn off his energy.

He’s great with other dogs when off lead, but when he’s out in busy places on his lead he gets very excited when he sees another dog, so needs someone who can work with him on that.

If you’re looking for a big lively dog, a companion who will love everyone he meets and play fetch as long as you can, this could be your boy.  

Vosko is in foster in Dept 86. Please contact us through the En Route website www.assoenroute.com or email henri@assoenroute.com for further info.   

Gordon

Gordon is young, black and uniquely stunning.
We know he had a tough start in life as he was scared of everything when he first arrived.
It’s difficult building their confidence in the Pound environment, especially when they’re already nervous, but Gordon is a different dog now. His face has relaxed, he looks to people for affection and he has been out on a couple of dates with a beautiful calm blonde (dog) who is teaching him that dogs are good too.
Gordon can now ‘assied’ and ‘ici’. He loves his regular walker, paddling and rolling in puddles, a chest rub and freely gives kisses.
Gordon still needs more time, but what he really needs is a home and a person of his own who he can bond with and who will invest time in him. That’s when we’ll see the real change in this gorgeous boy.
Please get in touch through the website www.Assoenroute.com or email henri@assoenroute.com if you’re interested in fostering or adopting Gordon.

Naomie

Naomie

Meet Naomie – a beautiful girl with a fabulous coat, lovely long legs and soft velvety ears. She’s quite shy, but very eager to please. She’s been through the wars and is now asking if you please have room for her in your home.

The pound is no place for such a fine young girl where the cold and damp will get into her bones. She’s waiting to meet you so let’s not make her wait too long.

She is currently in pound in the north of Dept 79.  She will be micro-chipped, neutered and will have all her injections and a passport. 

If you would like more information on Naomie please contact us on 09 77 48 71 43 or email asso.orfee@laposte.net

Scooby & Tinker

Scooby
Tinker

Scooby (multi-coloured, 13 yrs) and Tinker (black, 15 yrs) have lost everything and everyone they love following the death of their dad, and are currently being cared for near Sainte-Soline in dept 79. They are old and creaky but they have been given a clean bill of health by our vet and still enjoy their food and snoozing by the fire or in the sun, so we would love to find a calm relaxed home for them to live out their days together.

What we need is a forever foster home within an hour of where they are now who we can offer full support to, so please get in touch if you’re interested.
They will happily share their home with another dog or cat as long as they’re not too boisterous.

Please contact us through the En Route website www.assoenroute.com or via email at henri@assoenroute.com in the first instance.

Marley

Handsome Marley has been waiting soooo long for someone to fall in love with him. Could this cheeky chappie be your new best friend? He’s loyal, intelligent, trainable, funny & affectionate.

Marley needs an understanding home where he will be reassured, guided and, above all, loved. A well fenced garden for plenty of play and a canine friend would be an added bonus.

He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated for rabies, wormed etc.

Marley is with Julie Standsbridge in Dept 24. If you would like more information please ring 09 77 48 71 43 or email: asso.orfee@laposte.net
