Sam and Mac

Sam - DOB - FEB 2007 | Male | Maltese X Shih Tzu
Mac - DOB - JAN 2004 | Male | Maltese X Shih Tzu

Hey there we are Sam & Mac!
Sam is the white boy and Son of Mac.
We are a couple of friendly fluffy's looking for a quiet loving home where we can have lots of human companionship. We both enjoy pottering around with each other and absolutely love affection.
Sam & Mac will need some TLC to get them back to good condition, which will involve diet, moderate exercise and regular grooming so they can show off their lovely winter coats again.
These two are sure to warm the right household and make a great addition to the home.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Sam & Mac will require approximately 30 mins of exercise daily. They will need part time / stay at home workers as they can be quite anxious when left alone. They will require regular grooming to ensure their coat are nice and matt free.
Sam & Mac will need to be on strict diets and regular exercise so they can lose weight / improve overall health & wellbeing.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Sam & Mac have not been around children much previously but may be suited to older teens in the home who can give them their own space.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Sam and Mac prefer the company of each other only.


DOB - MAY 2013 | Male | Australian Terrier X

Hello there, my name is Angus, and I'm a 4-year-old Australian Terrier X.

I'm in need of a special home with someone who is an experienced dog owner as I do have a few quirks that will require a committed and patient person to help me improve.
I'm generally good with people, but some people just aren't my cup-of-tea, and I'm not afraid to let them know what I think about them! I'm pint-size but my personality is BIG, and I will need owners who are willing to help me correct some of my behaviours. I'm not a lap dog - let me repeat...I am NOT a lap dog. I'm an independent little man on a mission to sniff everything in sight, so please do not pick me up and put me on your lap, it's not my thing. I need to be free to roam, free to do what I please (within reason of course!). I'm an adventurer, some would call me an the great Marco Polo. I will probably ignore you until I have seen and sniffed everything in my path, so don't be offended, it's just who I am. I'm a pocket rocket, with loads of personality and won't suit everyone, but I know my pawfect home is out, come and meet me to find out if we're the pawfect match.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Angus will require 30-45 mins of exercise each day. He may be okay with full-time workers eventually, but in the beginning this little man is going to need someone home with him as much as possible.
MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Angus is NOT suited to children of any age and he will not tolerate them.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: No other dogs in the home. Angus may be able to meet polite and calm dogs in public though.


DOB - NOV 2009 | Male | Pomeranian X Maltese

Charlie is a lovely little companion dog who finds himself looking for a new home he can settle into.
He is polite with people and becomes quite friendly / affectionate once given time to warm up to you.
Charlie loves to potter around exploring new things, going for walks and of course spending lots of time inside the home with his humans. He is very well mannered and will make an awesome loving family member in the right home.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Charlie will require approximately 45 minutes of exercise daily. He may suit full time workers once given time to settle into his new home but part time hours would be best initially. Charlie is well mannered, has basic obedience skills, walks well on lead and responds with good focus. Charlie is known to bark at strangers and noises from storms so he will need owners who can control his environment to help him improve.
MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Charlie may be ok with children in the home as long as they are gentle and very appropriate with him. He is an older boy and may prefer his own space at times. Pending meet...

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Charlie is okay with other polite well-mannered dogs, however, he does prefer his own space in his home.


Marley and Roxy - Bonded Pair

DOB Marley - OCT 2010 | Male | Small Mixed Breed
DOB Roxy - APR 2011 | Female | Chihuahua X

Hello! I'm Roxy, and this is my bestie for life, Marley.
Marley is a 6-year-old male Small Mixed Breed, and I'm a 6-year-old female Chihuahua X.
I'm a princess and Marley is a pri.......well, Marley is a bit of a goof, to be honest with you, but that's why I love him. We're both super affectionate and love to jump up on your lap for cuddles.
We must be inside as this is what we are used to and it's where we are the happiest. Cosying up to our humans is the best feeling in the world.
So, Marley is quite a confident lad, who waltzes around with his tail wagging and his nose up in the air, taking in all the scents around him. As much as he doesn't want to admit it, he would be a fabulous candidate for group training...he's quite a smart boy, but lacks socialisation skills, so I think this would help him. Me, on the other hand, I'm a social butterfly and like to befriend any sized dogs.
We're both quite lively and love our walks together. I love to investigate the world around me, and Marley likes to just wander around aimlessly, enjoying life.
We do ask that we're not homed with children though, older teens would be better - this is because Marley isn't a huge fan of younger kids. I'm not that fond of them either...sorry!
If you like the sound of us, please ask to see us outside of Kennel in one of Dogs' Refuge Home's lovely yards. Marley is a bit of a nutter in kennel, but is wonderfully well-behaved outside of kennel.
We hope to see you soon.

MY ENERGY LEVEL + REQUIREMENTS: Marley will require 2x 30 minute walks and Roxy will require 1x 30 minute walk. Marley and Roxy will need to be indoor dogs and will need to be left with enrichment toys to keep their minds occupied if being left alone for longer periods of time.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: Older dog-savvy teens only

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Best suited to being the only dogs in the house.
