Long-Termers

Here are our dogs who have been at the Dogs' Refuge Home for 6 months and over. They are every bit as adoptable as our other dogs that you see in our kennels. Please don't forget about them, they deserve their 2nd Chance at Life as much as any other dog! Dogs marked 'In Foster' are available for adoption.

Chevy is a favorite of the vollies. He is an absolute smooch with such character.He is looking for an active home to call his own with people willing to put the time and effort into him and make him a part of the family.

Harry

DOB - AUG 2010 | Male | Kelpie x Heeler

Harry is quite fearful and not has not had the easiest start in life. He is looking for experienced owners that will allow him adjust to new surroundings in his own time and make him feel at ease. It would be best he goes to a calm family with older children so his new home will make him feel nice and safe. When Harry trusts you he is a beautiful affectionate boy who will just relax beside you loving all the attention he is getting. When his fear takes over he does tend to bark, but he is easily distracted or will calm when brought inside the home. This boy is one that truly deserves the next home to be his last.

Django - Adopt me!






Django

DOB - MAY 2010 | Male | Mastiff

Django is a beautiful big teddy bear looking for a loving home where he can be an inside companion. It is likely that he has had a rough start in life as he does not trust easily, you must take time to get to know him and once you gain his trust he is soooo affectionate! He cuddles right into you and loves a good ear scratch but he does also think he is a lapdog so he will need training to teach him the house rules. Django is a big   strong boy so they must also be physically capable of taking him on   his daily walks. He is an awesome dog and once you gain his trust you will have a friend for life. He is just beautiful.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I can't live with kids.

Red - In Foster

DOB - DEC 2012 | Male | Staffy Bull X

Red is a sweet boy that does not appear to have been well socialised. He looks like he is quite confident but can be startled very easy, new owners will just need to give him time to get comfortable in his new surroundings. Red is really affectionate and sometimes thinks he is a lapdog, The only thing he likes more than cuddles are his toys, he just loves them and will happily play on his own for hours and keep himself occupied.

His ideal home will be with experienced dog owners. He will need to be in a home where someone is home often (ie part time or work from home).

MY ENERGY LEVEL: High energy will require 1.5 hrs per day

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Aged 10yrs+

Maverick - In Foster

DOB - JUL 2006 | Male | Rottweiler

MY IDEAL HOME: I am looking for a calm home where I do not have to worry about young kids bothering me and I can just relax. Full time workers are fine but must be inside with my mum and dad when they are home as it is what I am used to.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: Although I am older I will still require approx 2 x 30 minute walks daily. This will decrease as I grow older.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Not to be rehomed with children under any circumstances.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Not good with other animals.
