DOB - MAY 2010 | Male | Schipperke

Hey I am Stig. I know I am a lil cutie but I cannot got to just anyone as I will need ongoing training. I have never been on lead before and it really scares me so I have not been exposed too much in the past. I can be quite playful but can become over excited and nippy at times. I am searching for a home where I will be an inside dog and treated as a member of the family. Does that sound like your home?


MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Older dog-savvy kids only



DOB - JUNE 2015 | Male | Small Mixed Breed

Lucca is a friendly, energetic young boy looking for a home with owners who can guide him and give him the training he needs. He has had a tough start being left to his own devices for long periods and requires owners willing to commit to his doggy socialisation and training. Lucca is full of energy so will suit active owners and will thrive once given lots of activity & mental enrichment daily. Lucca has a lot to learn but in the right home is sure to grow into a loving, social, loyal companion.

MY ENERGY LEVEL Lucca will require approximately 2 x 45 minute walks per day plus lots of mental enrichment such as kongs, treat dispensing toys and chew toys, especially if he is to be left alone. At this stage Lucca will need to go to part time or stay at home workers as he is quite vocal when bored and will need lots of exercise and training to help him develop.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Lucca can only be homed with children 13yrs+ or an adult only home. He needs to be supervised around small children.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Lucca is quite reactive to dogs at the moment - he will lunge, bark and growl when he sees them. At present he will need to be kept away from dogs until he relaxes in his home and can be slowly introduced to them again with calm on lead parallel walking.

Chevy & Paco

Chevy DOB - AUG 2012 | Male | Staffy x Mastiff

Paco DOB - OCT 2014 | Male | Small Mixed breed

Meet the old couple! Chevy is a 4 year old staffy x Mastiff and Paco is a 2 year old small bitsa who was saved from a minesite up North. Chevy is not dog social but when Paco accidentally escaped into the during an overnight foster, they clicked and have been together on foster for many months. Due to changed circumstances the foster family has had to bring them back.

Even thought they are together they have very different needs. We think keeping them together benefits them both, especially Chevy who can suffer separation anxiety when left alone.

Chevy needs very committed and experienced owners to manage his dog reactivity and continue his socialisation training. Paco would benefit from developing his manners but is generally easy going.

Ideally they need a home with a large open backyard to roam and play. For Chevy this would mean not in a built up area with dogs either side or dogs to be encountered on daily walks.

They love and play with each other which seems to be enough for Chevy so they are not the kind of boys to take to the beach or dog park.

Both love humans but would be best in a home with much older children who are dog savvy or adults. We'd welcome enquiries to discuss these two and hope they might capture the heart and interest of a new family soon.




DOB - APR 2007 | Male | Miniature Poodle X

Hey I am Pedro. I am a sweet older gentleman looking for a home where I can spend my golden years. I am not too keen being left alone so I would like someone who can keep me company during the day or is retired like me. I have a lot of hair so I will need regular grooming and brushing. I would love someone who would allow me on the sofa with them so we can watch a movie and just relax. If you think you can fulfill my dream then please enquire about me.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Not suitable for children

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Pedro seems to be okay with calmer dogs but he does prefer his own space


DOB - JUL 2014 | Male | Corgi X

Hey I am Mumbo. I may be small but I have a BIG personality. I am in search of a home with experienced dog owners who are willing to love me regardless of my quirks and continue ongoing training with me. I love humans so much that I can stress when I am alone so my ideal home is one with someone home more often then not. Does it sound like I will suit you?
MY ENERGY LEVEL: 1x 30 minute walk daily

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Dog-savvy older kids

DOB - DEC 2015 | Male | Jack Russell Terrier X

Sacka is a little pocket rocket who can be a bit shy at first but it does not take him long to warm up and then his super playful side comes out.
Sacka loves chasing his toys around, playing with his humans or having a good cuddle on the sofa.
He is a special boy who is not going to be easy to manage and will need experienced dog owners without any children.

DOB - JUL 2008 | Female | Jack Russell Terrier X

Hey my name is Bandy. I am an older lady who is in need of a new best friend who I can spend my days with. Unlike my breed I am pretty easy going, I am happiest in the company of humans and on someone's lap. I'm super affectionate and will become anyone's best friend for a piece of chicken, I am not too picky. I would love a home where I can just relax during the day and enjoy some nice gentle walks with my new owner.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: 30 minute walk daily + mental enrichment

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Older dog-savvy teens

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Bandy appears to be dog social, however she does prefer her own space.
