J.J - SPANIEL/COLLIE
J.J is an 8 month old male and is new arrival (18 June). He is very lovable fella who is looking for an active home with owners who can provide him with lots of exercise and further socialization. He would best suit a home with older children, as he is very bouncy/jumpy. J.J. is house trained, lead trained, been with another dogs and cats. He is getting along splendidly with our other resident dogs and enjoys the company and playtime with his kennel companion Draoichta! J.J. has a habit of steeling food from everywhere, and does guard his food when eating. Nothing serious, but a trait that will need a bit of work to overcome.
(RESERVED) BOOTS - LABRADOR/COLLIE MIX
Boots is a 6 month old male and has just arrived into our care (18th June). Boots had been reared with children and been with other dogs. He will need a family who has the time to spend with him and further his basic training. Boots walks well on the lead and jumps up a bit initially. An extremely well-mannered fella for his age -- gentle and so affectionate. Boots is a gem -- a young, very lovable juvenile boy looking for that loving forever home!
(RESERVED) ZEUS - GERMAN SHEPHERD
This handsome male GSD is approx. 3 years old and is a magnificent fella! Zeus was an unclaimed stray in the pound. He is new into our care (Tuesday, 16th June), and although he just arrived -- we all fell in love with him immediately. Zeus has a fantastic temperament towards us, other dogs and cows (so far)!! He will need an experienced family as he is one big, bouncy boy!!! Zeus is very energetic and will need a family/person to match his energy and understand the traits of GSDs. Ideally, we would like to re-home Zeus to an experienced GSD owner who knows and appreciates what this wonderful breed needs to be happy and content.
LOGAN - LAKELAND TERRIER MIX PUP
Logan is approx. 14 weeks old and is in need of someone who is experienced with dogs and can help build up his confidence. Logan was an unwanted pup and had not had the benefit of human interaction. When he came into our care, he was withdrawn and so not used to being petted or handled -- he would cower and wet if you touched him (top photo). The good news is that after 2 weeks he is coming along so well -- he is now barking a bit and feeling more sure of us and his surroundings. He gets so excited and happy when another dog comes near to him. Logan is still unsure when approached, but there is no aggression, just apprehension. Thus, Logan will need that special person(s) who can help to gain his trust and give him lots of gentle TLC. Logan has received his 2nd vaccination and under normal circumstances would be ready to leave for his new home, but we are going to continue to work with him. He can now be introduced to other dogs which should benefit his rehab greatly. Updates on his progress to follow.
P.S. Logan is a prime example of some behaviour seen in puppy farm pups -- due to lack of human interaction, they are fearful and need a good deal of work and time to socialize and make them enjoy human interaction.
BRAN (WITH OWNER - CO. CAVAN)
BRAN - RED SETTER MALE (8 YEARS OLD) WITH CARER (Catherine - 087-6779492 -Virginia, Co. Cavan)
This is gorgeous Bran! His owner is recently deceased. Bran is vaccinated and neutered and unfortunately, is now in need of a caring new home. Bran is great with kids, although older children would be better as he is still quite lively for his age. A secure garden is required and a home check will be carried out prior to adoption. If you can help this fella, or would like to learn more about him, please contact Catherine on 087-677-9492.
APOLLO (WITH OWNER)
APOLLO -- 9 MONTH OLD COLLIE WITH HIS OWNER (SEAMUS WOODS - 087-9206144 - Annyalla, Castleblayney area).
The MSPCA is trying to help Seamus find a suitable home for Apollo. Apollo is not getting on with his Bearded Collie and Seamus is looking for a new home for him. Seamus told us the following about Apollo: "he could live in a home with older children (teenagers) as he still jumps up for attention, he is partially lead trained, but not house-trained, or neutered and not vaccinated. He would not suit elderly people, as he is too lively and needs lots of exercise. Also, would need supervision with other dogs or separate feeding areas at feeding time." If you can provide a proper home for a young, active Collie, please give Seamus a ring on 087-920-6144. Also, you must have a properly fenced/walled garden/yard to keep him safe and secure.
JACKO - JR TERRIER
JACKO - JACK RUSSELL TERRIER (SENIOR CITIZEN)
Jacko is an older fella (approx. 9+ years of age). He came into our shelter as a stray and was never re-claimed. Jacko is a gentle soul, friendly, relaxed and so well mannered and of course, house-trained! He is our new office dog -- sleeps/relaxes on an office chair and and gives all the folks who come into our office a little welcome. Everyone just adores JACKO. Jacko is fantastic with all other dogs and also very tolerant of little humans! Jacko is looking for a calm environment and cozy sofa/settee where he can relax with his new owner(s). Jacko will be so easy to care for -- he will follow you about outside, when he goes out to do his business, and then enjoy keeping your lap warm as you watch TV or surf the net! Jacko is in great health and we think he has many more years to provide love to his new family -- a true gentleman!

PENNY, JEWEL, PEPPER, WIZZER, FIDGET - TERRIER MIX PUPS
WIZZER IS THE ONLY PUP NEED A HOME -- 4TH PHOTO - MALE (ALL BLACK)
These little darlings are 9 weeks old (DOB: 5/4/15). There are 2 females (Penny & Jewel) and 3 males (Pepper, Wizzer & Fidget) - photos are in order of their names. They have received their 1st vaccination and treated for worms. They are confident, lively and full of fun -- their Terrier nature is already evident! While they are not ready to leave the shelter yet, you can come and meet them and we can reserve one for you. We require all adopters have a properly secure garden/yard or enclosed pen. Also all pups/dogs must be house-living pets. We also require someone is home most of the day to provide the care, training, and interaction a little one needs.
SHOT - LABRADOR/COLLIE MIX
Shot is an older boy (approx. 7-8 years of age). He is super nice -- walks perfect on the lead, is house-trained and just a laid back, friendly, adorable guy! Shot is in great condition -- needs a good brushing as he is shedding at the moment. He came into our care as a stray and was not reclaimed, so is now in need a new forever home. If you are looking for a canine friend who will be so easy to care for and would settle in like he always has been with you -- this is the fella. He is an absolute joy of a dog -- will follow you around, lay beside you in the evenings and be great company all day long!
BRADLEY - HOUND
This extremely handsome and well-behaved Hound is named Bradley. He is approx. 3 years old and has such a nice nature -- walks great on the lead and is a calm and gentle fella. People always think Hounds (Harrier or Foxhounds) are for hunting -- but we think Bradley would rather be a companion dog! Bradley will sometimes give a lovely sounding howl, but is mostly quiet and very relaxed in his kennel. Bradley is looking for a home that can provide him 2 long walks a day and allow him to curl up in his comfy bed indoors and keep you company.
Bradley went on trial last week, but sadly it wasn't the home suited for him. SO we know that Bradley is very shy when away from the shelter. He is clean in the house but does not know how to behave in the house (looking for food all the time -- stealing food out of hands/plates). He loves his walks and has a very good nose on him so could not be let off lead until fully trained on recall. Bradley is very strong on lead, was good traveling, but terrified to get in and out of car. He was brilliant with their older dog and with the family/kids in general.
IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE THE TIME TO TEACH BRADLEY ALL THE THINGS HE HAS MISSED OUT IN LIFE PLEASE CALL TO SEE HIM!!!
NIGEL - STAFFIE
Nigel is looking and feeling so much better now! His facial wounds have healed and he has gained a good deal of weight. Nigel is house-trained, walks great on the lead and is an extremely social guy. He does not like being left on his own and is looking for a home where someone can be with him most of the day. He loves playing with his toys and is an outgoing and super responsive -- will sit for a treat and is such a friendly fella. Nigel has been great when meeting other dogs when out for his walk and there has been no negative reaction when walking by or near other dogs (even when they are barking at him). A cool fella who shows a great deal of affection and has moved on from whatever past he endured and is so anxious to relax in his new home!
Nigel came into our shelter from a member of the public on the 8th April -- he found him lying in on the side of the road between Carrickroe and Emyvale. Nigel is approx. 3-4 years old and was treated by a vet (thanks Shane Pritchard) on the evening he arrived into our shelter. He had infected cuts/lacerations to his face/muzzle which were extremely swollen. Nigel responded well with the antibiotics and pain meds and is in much better form/condition now. He is eating well and is vocal (whines for attention) which we are delighted to hear! Nigel is looking for a home experienced with his breed type -- he does not like being confined in a kennel. Nigel is house-trained, good on lead and a real gentle and kind fella who wants to be a house-living companion and lap dog!
