Kobe

DOB - DEC 2015 | Male | Great Dane X Kelpie

Kobe is a delightful boy. His initial few days here at the shelter was very traumatic for him and i was a little worried about his fear response however in just a few days after having some desense work in a few area's he has turned the corner very quickly. Whilst out on a walk he was curious of the traffic going by especially the buses' and loud noises but there was no reaction. I feel this could be as he hasn't really been taken many places so everything is a little new to him. I feel with the right home this boy will flourish and gain in confidence very quickly. He is a real smooch and bonds in seconds. We all love him already!

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Kobe will need to go to owners who are happy to allow him to adjust to his new life gradually in his own time. Depending on the situation, environment etc this could be very quick or gradual. He has some fear issues and although we feel this will minimise in the right home new owners must always be aware this can be triggered if he doesn't feel comfortable and one of these is children. No children at this time as they scare him. Kobe will need one hour of physical exercise needed a day and mental enrichment in the form of training and kongs.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Kobe is very uncomfortable around children and should not be re-homed with kids of any age.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Kobe may be ok with friendly and polite dogs, but he does prefer his own space and would be better off as an only dog.

Quentin

DOB - JUN 2009 | Male | Staffy X Labrador

What a beautiful boy Quentin is. This guy is deceiving, there looks to be a lot of life left in this old boy yet. We paired him up with a young Great Dane cross and he was so happy interacting. He barked with excitement. He is such a character and we feel he will make one great loyal companion. He will require a 45 minute walk and sniff a day. I feel he will be best suited to fit retired people or someone who can take him to work like a tradie or truckie.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Quentin needs to go to a home where his owners are home for most of the day. Apparently he stresses a little when left but we feel if his physical needs are met daily of a 45 minute walk this should settle him. I feel a fit retired person would suit this guy down to the ground or a quiet household. I could also see him as a truckies' mate or a tradies' mate where he could travel in the car with his owner going to work. I think kids visiting will be ok but at his age it may be nice to retire to a chilled out place. He definitely has to be able to stay in side as he loves being indoors.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Quentin is looking for a nice quiet household to retire in. We feel he would be more comfortable without younger children in the home.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Quentin is a social butterfly with other well-mannered dogs. He is NOT fond of cats.

He is a mature boy who definitely doesn't act his age, Pan seems to be fitting of the Boxer breed as he is easily mistaken for a puppy when he is goof-balling around.
He is a lovely boy and will make a fantastic family companion.

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: Pan will require approximately 1.5hrs of exercise daily. Mental enrichment can assist with meeting his daily requirements as he will need a lot of entertainment & exercise. Pan may suit full time workers once settled into his new home. He will need to be monitored initially to see how he copes and not sure if he is a fence jumper although he can jump high during play. Pan is very playful and will need an active lifestyle, he is well-mannered but can grab at the lead when excited.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Pan may be suitable for children 10+ pending meet.
He is an excitable boy and can be jumpy at times.
Pan is very friendly and happy with people, he loves to run & play.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Pan is quite excitable but eager to meet new dogs. His play style should be monitored by his new owners as he may be too full-on for some dogs.

DOB - OCT 2015 | Male | American Bulldog X

Hello, Friends! I'm Spud...great to meet you!
I'm a good-lookin' (if I do say so myself) 1-year-old male American Bulldog X.
I'm hoping you can assist me with finding a new home? I'm in foster care at the moment as I just wasn't getting along with my fur-siblings in my last home. I'm quite a friendly dude when I'm on lead and meeting dogs outside the home, but I think it's best for me to be re-homed as the only dog in your life.
I want to start off by telling you the things that make me LOVE LIFE and give you some insight into my pawsonality.
I'm a typical blokey-bloke, love women, food, cars and chillin' out. I will do just about anything for food...including high-fiving you out of nowhere, just to let you know that you're doing a good job being my main humanz. I'm not a fan of most men and this will need to be monitored. I'd love for my new humanz to put me into one-on-one training to help me with this as I'd like to feel comfortable around men in the future.
I have this really cool trick that I can do...all you have to do is rub my bellyz and my back leg goes bananas...it's funny because I have no control over it - it's like an 'on' button for my leg!
If you like running long distance or going on massive walks, we can't be friends...sorry...I love my daily walks but I'm no marathon runner and prefer to meander through the bush instead. Bush walks are the BEE'S KNEE'S!!!
Now, onto a very important subject....napping! I loves to nap, napping is great and it's even better when I can nap with my humanz, I'll send you to sleep with my soothing Bulldog snoring. I also loves to play fetch, except I never bring the ball back...I let my humanz fetch the ball so they can be involved in this fun game too!
I haven't really been around children before and I'm not really sure what to do with them?? I think it's best if I'm re-homed without kids for now. I may be okay with them visiting though, as long as they're appropriate with me.
Once I feel comfortable, I'm sure to make the best companion ever. I'm a BIG lovable teddy bear, ready for my next chapter in life.
If you think I'd be perfect for you, please have your people call my people on 9381 8166 and ask about the best dog ever...me, Spud!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Love always, Spud xo

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Spud will require approx. 30-45 mins of exercise each day. He would suit part-time or full-time workers but will need time to get used to his new owners being away from him for longer periods of time, so it would be best for someone to be home with him while he is settling in.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Spud will need a child-free home so his owners can focus on him and helping him improve

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Spud is quite eager to play with new dogs outside of his home environment. He should not be re-homed with other dogs though. His new owners will need to be committed with his training as he does become too full-on for other dogs
