Zed

DOB - MAY 2013 | Male | ACD X Am Bulldog

Zed is a very interesting boy! He is full of energy and life and has lots of puppy love to share. He has not received much training yet and this will need to be a priority for his new family and incorporated into his daily routine. Zed will need lots of things to keep him busy if left alone during the day such as food dispensing toys and chew bones. 

MY IDEAL HOME: I would ideally go to active and experienced owners who have some experience with training. New owners must be committed to a group training course.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx 2 x 45 minute walks daily plus lots of games and mental stimulation.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with teenagers over 16 years.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Star - In foster

DOB - JUL 2013 | Female | Bull Arab

Star is a very special girl, she is an absolute sweet heart and is just a BIG puppy! You couldn't find a more happier dog then Star, she loves to run and play with toys and say hello to everyone all at the same time!

MY IDEAL HOME: Ideally I would go to a quiet home where I won't be on a lot of slippery surfaces (tiles) as I have been diagnosed with a condition which affects my voluntary coordination of my muscle movements (I get off balance when over excited) 

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I enjoy 1.5 hours of activity daily and plenty of stimulation.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with dog savvy children over 10 years.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Onyx - Adopt Me!




Blair - Adopt Me!






Missy - Adopt Me!










Onyx - In foster

DOB - APR 2014 | Male | Rotti X Kelpie

Onyx is a very social and playful pup. He enjoys affection but also enjoys going of on his own to explore. A good puppy training course would be a great way to set Onyx on the right track. Onyx would be best suited to an active family and could live with kids that have a good sense of humor (in case they get knocked over!)

MY IDEAL HOME: I would suit a family who are wanting a puppy. New owners will need to commit to mandatory training due to my age.

Blair

DOB - DEC 2012 | Female | Great Dane

Blair is a lovely girl, she enjoys being with people and loves a gentle massage. She is lacking a little in confidence but once she is familiar with you she really comes out of her shell. Blair has become more used to being touched and is very affectionate to the people she has got to know at the refuge, so she can only improve with the right owner!

MY IDEAL HOME: I would ideally go to a calm and loving family who want a companion dog to spend time inside with them. New owners will need to take it slow with me and give me lots of time to settle in.  

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will need a 45minute walk daily plus games and mental enrichment at home.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with teenagers over 16 years.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Charlie

DOB - JAN 2013 | Female | Mastiff

Charlie is an energetic girl who would love a family that is not intimidated by her size.  Charlie loves human company and would love nothing more than to join her new family on the couch for movie nights.  Charlie does need some help learning good doggy manners, but if you have some experience with handling and training larger breeds, then Charlie is the perfect companion for you.

MY IDEAL HOME: I am an enthusiastic girl who doesn't know my size! As a result, I need some help learning how to slow down.  Owners who have experience handling large, strong breeds will love me.

Watch Video

 

Quincy is a very sweet and gentle boy. He is very much a smooch as he adores attention and affection and will happily sit there to receive it. He has a lovely easy going friendly nature, but having other animals in the home is a course of stress for him. He loves bouncy play and loves his toys. Quincy is an adorable loving boy who will be a fun loving companion for life.

MY IDEAL HOME: I need experienced owners who want a sweet gentle loving boy to join the family. I must be allowed inside with you as I adore human company and may whine when owners are not home.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Samson - Adopted

DOB - JAN 2013 | Male | Boxer X

Samson is a very exuberant boy who lacks self control and manners. He is very jumpy and pushy on greet and will knock smaller people over. Once familiar, Samson is a big social ball of energy. Samson does excite quickly and does love to play when out in a yard. Samson does need to learn lots of manners and self control from his new owners. Samson may be a bit of a project dog.

MY IDEAL HOME: I would ideally go to very experienced dog owners who are willing to put some time and energy into training me.

Bonnie

DOB - JUN 2011 | Male | Staghound

Bonnie is a hilarious doofus! She could be described as a clown and will have you laughing in no time. She is a very playful girl and is the more energetic one than Clyde. Her favourite thing to do is run! She may bore easily so must be kept occupied with mental enrichment when home alone and is not suited to small suburban properties unless new owners are committed to her exercise and training needs. Bonnie does lack basic manners but is a very smart girl who will learn quickly. Great girl who will need lots of guidance from her new owners.

Pebbles is a very sweet boy who has quite a soft nature. He can be a little shy of new people but warms to you very quickly and once comfortable he adores affection and attention. Pebbles is a lovely boy who has so much potential he just needs owners who are willing to point him in the right direction. 

MY IDEAL HOME: I need active owners who are willing to invest a little time into teaching me some house manners so I can spend time indoors with them. Ideally my new family would be part time workers as I love companionship

Bursa - Adopt Me!








Shadow - Adopt Me!




Bentley - Adopt Me!





Bursa

DOB - JUN 2008 | Female | Greyhound

Bursa is an absolute sweetheart who is looking for a family with a big enough heart to welcome both her and Janu into their home. Bursa is eager to learn and would love to be taken to group obedience classes to help her bond with her new owners. Despite her size, Bursa thinks she is a lap dog and would love to join her new family on the couch for movie nights.

MY IDEAL HOME: I would ideally go to owners who are familiar with the Greyhound breed and who can adopt me and my sister, Janu.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I would love to join you on at least a 30 minute walk each day plus plenty of toys and mental enrichment when at home.

Shadow

DOB - JAN 2013 | Female | Am Bulldog

Shadow is a gentle giant! She walks beautifully on lead, but if she wants to run, her new owners will need to be strong enough to manage her.  Shadow adores company and would love to join you on the couch for some snuggles.

MY IDEAL HOME: I am a big girl and don't know my own strength. Owners who have experience with large breeds are recommended.  I can be a bit shy around new people and in new environments, so need a family that can be patient with me and help me gain confidence.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I would love 2 x 30 minute walks each day, plus plenty of toys and mental enrichment when at home.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with children over 13 years.

Bentley

DOB - APR 2014 | Male | Great Dane X Mastiff

Bentley is just a big boofhead! He is a giant puppy that needs owners that can handle how strong he is. He has had training in the past and appears to have basic manners although he is easily excitable and can take some time to settle. Bentley has developed some interesting behaviours since being in her previous home (growling and biting when being told what to do). Bentley can be eager to learn but can also be a typical suborn Mastiff. If given the guidance he needs he will make a wonderful family companion. Be warned he sometimes thinks he is a cuddly little lapdog :)

MY IDEAL HOME: would suit a family that are active and have experience with large Mastiff breeds. Owners must be experienced with some possible behavioural issues.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require 2 x 45 minute walks daily and plus lots of IQ toys and enrichment such as kongs.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I need an adult only household.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Billy

DOB - JUL 2014 | Male |  Border Collie X Swiss Shepherd

Billy is a bouncy bundle of energy looking for an equally energetic family to join on runs, swims or games down at the beach (once he is taught a reliable recall).  Billy does not appear to have received much guidance in the past, so his new family must be patient and willing to teach this boy manners and good doggy behaviour.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will need at least 2 x 45 minute walks each day to help burn off that abundance of energy, plus toys and mental enrichment when at home.
