ADOPT A DOG - SONNY

ADOPT A DOG - SONNY

Sonny is a dear little dog who acts much younger than his age suggests. He is a boy who enjoys the finer things in life like sitting on his foster carers lap, and doing a little dance for his favorite treat. Sonny will suit a home with a couple/single who are dog savvy and have no small children living in the home. He is currently living with multiple dogs, however he does like to be the centre of attention. A short stroll daily wouldn’t go astray, and would also keep him fit and healthy. Sonny is a small Maltese and has a coat that will require regular grooming to keep him looking beautiful. He is a house dog and is house trained, Sonny requires access via a doggie door or similar at all times.

Sonny has developed epilepsy while in foster care, he is now on medication which has his condition under control.

 

Sonny comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested, and he has had a dental. The adoption fee is $325. Sonny is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Sonny, please email Denise

ADOPT A DOG - EGG

ADOPT A DOG - EGG

ADOPT A DOG - EGG

Egg is a young American Staffy puppy with a big head and an even bigger heart! One clever boy Egg has already learnt so much while in foster care, he has mastered sit, drop, has awesome recall and is house trained.

Egg currently lives with a large Bull Arab, a Pug and two Chihuahuas, all of whom he gets along with. He goes to the dog park and loves to run around and play, and he is learning how to interact appropriately with dogs that aren’t quite up for a good wrestle. A truly beautiful boy, Egg loves having a cuddle with his foster carer, and will just melt into your arms. Egg is almost pure white so is very prone to sunburn, he must wear a good coating of sunscreen when he is outside. Egg must go to a home where he will be left indoors if his family are not home. Ideally Egg would suit an active family who will commit to continue training and socialisation, exercise him daily and truly want a dog that is not just a dog but another family member. Another dog for company would be ideal, and an American Staffordshire experienced home will be a plus. Egg is currently about 14 kgs at 15 weeks, so we are guessing he will grow to be on the larger side of your typical American Staffordshire.

Egg’s new home must have a doggie door or similar so that he can come and go as he pleases.

Egg comes desexed, microchipped, 2 x vaccinations and wormed. The adoption fee is $495. Egg is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Egg, please email Denise

ADOPT A DOG - JIMMY

Smart and handsome, with a serious lust for life is how we would best describe Jimmy!
Jimmy is a whole lot of action jam packed into a chunky little package, quick to catch on he would be great for a family interested in taking him to something like agility or fly ball. Jimmy gets along well with other dogs and would like a canine companion in his new home, one that is happy to play and run around with him. When Jimmy gets a good dose of exercise he is very cuddly and will accept endless belly rubs, he loves to please and is very treat motivated so is a blast to train. Jimmy has a coat that sheds so will require a quick brush to remove loose hair a couple of times a week. He is a house dog and must have access inside when his family is home. Jimmy is great with kids.

JACK DAP 2

Were you a sucker for Enid Blyton, Paddington Bear, the Folk of the Faraway Tree? Have I got the small woodland creature for you. Not quite dog, definitely not cat… something out of an English tale. Tiny button eyes, a little pink nose, snow white fluffy fur and a tiny frame, there is something different about this one. If you want a plug and play dog that will sit on the couch with you and cuddle straight up, then swipe past us. Jack is different, but he is his own kind of different and makes no apologies for that.

Jack needs a special home because he is different to any little dog we’ve met. He is HILARIOUSLY funny, you can see it in his face, quirky and different, but he is also quite odd. He is like having a wacky flatmate rather than a pet you can cuddle. He has rules, rule number one is DON’T TOUCH JACK. His foster mummy ignore all his rules and picks him up and cuddles him constantly much to his horror. His second rule is NO STRANGE PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE. Once again, his foster mummy ignores such nonsense and has a cast of thousands tramping through the place. NO GOING FOR A WALK! Nonsense, his mummy walks him every day. Every time his foster mummy thinks she might be about to push him to far, he rallies and takes another step of improvement.

One thing about Jack is that everyone who meets him adores him, he is a funny little character. He desperately wants to be loved, he’s just not been shown what that looks like. He doesn’t like being touched with your hand, but he loses his marbles with joy if you pat him with your foot. He will play with you as long as you want as long as you use your foot.

His foster mum has just had six weeks at home after surgery and has watched him blossom day by day and for that reason she wants someone who is home full time who can make him to focus of their attention. He would be fine as an only dog, he likes other dogs but doesn’t seem to need them or with a gentle, low energy companion. He is not one for wrestling.

He is fine with men and women and dogs of all sizes. He is great in the car, fully house trained, is great with the doggy door and sleeps happily in his bed all night without a peep. He rarely barks unless you are too slow with his dinner, but then it isn’t a bark, more of an on-going conversation about why you are late and how you should hurry it up. He hasn’t been tested with cats and he finds noisy kids a bit scary.

If you think you might be the one to coax this nutty little creature out of his hole, go to his facebook page to learn more about him. There you will get a much better idea of who he is and see more photos. https://www.facebook.com/groups/260015474148846/

ADOPT A DOG - TICTAC

TIC TAC DAP 1
on-trial

TicTac is tiny at 3.5 kilos but he’s got the heart of giant – full of love for you. Cuddles are vital to his happiness as he is super loving and sweet, his favourite habit is to lie on your lap, on his back and go to sleep but he is also ok to fall asleep nearby not needing to be on your lap 100% of the time.

Tictac isn’t used to spending much time alone and will need plenty of human company plus another little doggie friend to play with – he’s never lived as an only dog and loves to cuddle up to his foster brothers and sisters. He loves to explore the garden but generally likes to follow his foster mum around.

He is very clean – is housetrained and learning to use a doggie door. TicTac lost all but 2 teeth in a major dental when he arrived but he loves his food and tucks in to kibble and meatballs, chicken and rice and other snacks with gusto!

He’s great on lead, loves a walk gently taking in the sights.

TicTac comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, and on heartworm protection, he has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. TicTac is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on TicTac, please email Denise.

ADOPT A DOG - THIMBLE

GERMAN SPITZ

AGE:     6

SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE

THIMBLE DAP 2

Thimble is a pedigree German Spitz Mittel and has been surrendered to us for rehoming. Thimble’s family are very upset at having to rehome him but due to circumstances beyond their control rehoming is the only option.

Thimble will do well in a quieter home with owners who are used to smallish dogs, he can be a little bit reserved but he isn’t shy or fearful although he is a sensitive soul. A home with a family who are familiar with the Spitz breed would be great as they are quite different and also have coats that do require regular grooming.

Thimble is great with other dogs and cats, he can be shy if he encounters men who are tall and loud though. He walks well on the lead, is a house dog and is house trained requiring access always.

His coat is high maintenance.

Thimble comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, and on heartworm protection, he has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Thimble is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Thimble, please email Denise.

BASSIE DAP 1

BASSIE’S  foster carer is getting to know her,  here is a glimpse of the home she needs and her personality type.

Bassie is only young at 18 months of age,  she has a delightful personality, but is extremely playful and strong so needs an owner who will keep her occupied and continue on with her training and daily walks.   Bassie loves other dogs so a home with another dog is a must for her.  She is very exuberant so will be too much for young children.

Bassie’s foster carer will give us some more information soon.

Bassie comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, and on heartworm protection. The adoption fee is $495. Bassie is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Bassie, please email Denise.

ADOPT A DOG - PEBBLES

Hi everyone.
My name is Pebbles and I want to be the boss of everyone! But my foster people and my foster pack are teaching me that if I want to make friends I need to be a bit less bossy. And, really, I do want to make friends. I particularly like people. My foster mum thinks I would like to live with someone who would take me for lots of little walks (I like walks but I’ve got little legs and I get tired quickly), and perhaps with another confident dog who could help me practice being friendly. I’m good with children, and I ignore cats. Ps I LOVE eating sticks!

Pebbles has a coat that will grow and require ongoing grooming, she is a house dog requiring access via a doggie door or similar.

ADOPT A DOG: AXEL AND BINDI

BINDI AND AXEL DAP
on-trial

Axel and Bindi are brother and sister from different litters and have been living in the backyard most of their lives. These little poppets couldn’t believe their luck when invited indoors by their foster carer. Axel was first through the door, but his big sister needed a bit of convincing. They mastered the doggy door in one night and take themselves out to the toilet. This gorgeous duo just wants your lap so they can disappear under the heated throw rug or burrow under your doona. Mention ‘walkies’ and they go nuts! …… It’s wrestlemania, noise and chaos. Axel had never walked on a lead, however Bindi showed him ‘the strut’ and within minutes, they both twinkled off together. They are a real hit at the dog park and are learning good doggy etiquette with dogs of all sizes.

BINDI 6 yrs, has the most soulful eyes, feather-like hair and paws like velvet. She can be shy at first and wary of strangers, but soon relaxes with gentle encouragement. Once Bindi warms to you, she will give you little kisses and will be your friend for life. Bindi is happiest up on your shoulder like a little koala or snuggling in to her brother on your lap. She will follow you and Axel everywhere.

AXEL 5 yrs, just wants your love and your lap, all day long. The boy is hilarious!! Whilst in your arms, he can bend back like a lizard, fall in to a trance-like state, become comatosed and then, enter in to a whole other dimension. He wakes up and gives you a cheesy smile like a Cheshire Cat because he wants to show everyone that he loves his ‘Denise at Paws’ dental. Axel can sit up like Jackie, hi five, and shake with either paw. He is one cool cat, in fact, he could be a cat!

Because Bindi and Axel are so joined at the hip, it would be cruel to separate them, so we won’t! A family with no children under 10 years is best as Bindi is a sensitive soul and can become very nervous and agitated. Regular brushing is a must for Bindi as she sheds hair, and she needs her undercoat brushed out, twice a year. Axel would love a gentle brush every other day. They must have indoor access through a doggy door or similar.

Axel and Bindi come desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, and on heartworm protection, they have also had a dental. The adoption fee is $900 for the pair. Axel and Bindi are not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Axel and Bindi, please email Denise.

ADOPT A DOG - CRISPIN

Crispin dap 1

Crispin is a friendly bundle of energy who loves your lap and your company. He will follow you round the house and doze at your feet asking for a cuddle every now and then. He loves his food and is learning about dog biscuits and raw chicken treats, and is rapidly gaining weight after a life of neglect. He is leaning good manners and to listen to instructions, to sit and go to bed when told. His house training is still a work in progress as he probably did not come indoors in his previous life. Crispin’s foster carer is working with him and we hope he will have the house training down pat very soon.

Crispin has a low maintenance coat that will require a quick wash and brush.

Crispin and his foster pal Captain Moonlight have formed a lovely friendship enjoying playtime and sleep time together. It would be nice for them to go to a new home together but we understand that this may not be possible. As long as they both have a doggie companion in their new home.

The Captain enjoys his food, it’s gone in 30 seconds, and he enjoys a walk in the park. He is developing good manners after a life of neglect and has learned to sit to ask for dinner, treats and cuddles rather than jumping everywhere. He needs another playful friend in his new home so he doesn’t get lonely.
