Enquire about RESERVED : BYRON

Spread the word

At 11 years of age this boy should not be looking for a new home . . . but he is.

BYRON is a happy-go-lucky dog who simply wants to be loved.  Undemanding, he is looking for the simple life – but not the inactive life.  He is in good health, enjoys playing and seems young for his age.

When asked to describe him these are the first reactions of his foster ‘mum’

BYRON is gentle and easy-going.  He listens, and craves affection – this alone makes him easy to handle – and he is so eager to please.  He comes back when called both by voice and by whistle.  While he might not be so photogenic, he is endearingly a smiley and happy dog.

BYRON is a polite and respectful dog . . . he is not destructive in any way – even when left alone, plus he barks only when appropriate.   He plays well with female and neutered male dogs.  And last but not least, he adores people – especially people who look likely to give him a back scratch!

His only bug-bear seems to be uncastrated males who simply make his normally smooth hackles rise.  We are hopeful that now he has been sterilised, this will help.

While BYRON would love a home with other dogs, he would probably be equally happy as an only dog because this would mean getting all the back-scratches for himself!  He is very happy to spend most of his day outdoors and is not looking for a super active family.  Daily 10 km runs through the countryside are not on his wish-list.

After the delay that lockdown caused, BYRON now has a full dossier of vaccinations including rabies and so is ready to go.  Because of his age, if required, he is eligible to become a Les Amis Lifetime Fosterling, meaning that his future veterinary costs would be covered by the Association. Further details of this scheme and the adoption process can be found on our website

He was recently tested on a dog-friendly cat and after a careful sniff, he took no notice at all.  So provided he was with a dog-friendly cat, all would be well.

BYRON is currently fostered in Department 24 (Dordogne) and is available for adoption or Lifetime Fostering anywhere in France or for adoption farther afield, subject to a successful home check.  If you would like to know more about this lovely lad, and have the opportunity to meet him either virtually or in reality, you can:
