BASSET HOUND LABRADOR MIX
AGE: 18 MONTHS
ADOPT A DOG: BASSIE
With big ears and short legs, Bassie is basically an oversized dachshund!
Bassie is full of joy, mischief and will surely make you smile. Her favourite activity is a good old fashioned wrestling match with her doggy pals, closely followed by using her nose to snuffle about like all good hound dogs do!
At around 18kgs, Bassie is very much a medium sized dog, her coat is short and soft and does shed but that can be minimised with regular brushing. Bassie is fairly energetic, she loves to play and could do it all day, she walks well on leash and needs a decent daily walk to meet her physical exercise needs. Puzzle toys, Kongs and training games are also a favourite of Bassie, she is highly food motivated and would love a home with someone who is interested in having fun whilst doing some training. Ideally her new home will have another playful, robust dog in the home, as we mentioned Bassie LOVES to play, so her new doggy pal must have previous wrestling experience!
Bassie is house trained, crate trained, sleeps well through the night and would absolutely love to find that forever home with an active family looking for a fun, cheeky companion that is going to make them laugh and get out and about!
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.
BORDER COLLIE – TERRIER MIX
ADOPT A DOG - JESSIE
Jessie is a great dog with a fantastic nature. She has a lot of energy and requires a home with a family who are into exercise/walking their dog every day of the week.
Jessie loves to go to the off leash park and runs all over the place, she is extremely good with other dogs and would like a doggie friend in her home who can keep up with her high energy levels. Jessie’s doggie companion must be a male not a female dog as she is far more compatible with male dogs. She is extremely affectionate and loves her Mum and Dad foster carers very much. When she originally arrived into care Jessie was afraid of both males and females but as each day passes she becomes more and more confident.
Jessie is a house dog, she is house trained and uses a doggie door with ease. Her coat will require regular brushing to keep it free from knots.
Are you up for an energetic dog with all the love in the world to give?
Jessie comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested and she has had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Jessie is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Jessie, please email Denise
AGE: 1 YEAR
SIZE: MEDIUM WHEN FULLY GROWN
ADOPT A DOG - SUNDAE
SUNDAE is an enthusiastic, hilarious tripod dog. She has an undeniable zest for life, loves everyone and everything and is completely fearless. Sundae arrived into our care with a bad limp to her front leg, it was quickly discovered that she had an old fracture that had been left unattended and after vet investigation and discussion with multiple specialists we made the decision to amputate as it was causing her pain and discomfort. After her surgery Sundae woke up running, having three legs is certainly not something that has dampened her spirit. Sundae lives with 5 other dogs both big and small, she gets along well with all of them, including the resident cat. Sundae gets walked daily at the local dog beach where she runs, swims and plays with any dog up for a game. She is energetic, however tires reasonably quickly after her daily outing. Sundae is still very much a puppy, she is learning her manners and will need ongoing training to ensure she keeps out of trouble. Sundae is ideally looking for a home with another playful dog, she is great with children however does have a tendency to jump so older children would be better suited to her. Her new home, ideally would have minimal stairs, although she can get up and down stairs without issues the long term impact on her remaining front leg wouldn’t be the best. Sundae will need a good diet to keep her weight down so to not negatively impact her joints, she has a short shedding coat and only requires the occasional bath to keep her smelling fresh! She is house trained and requires access inside at all times.
Sundae comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested. The adoption fee is $495. Sundae is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Sundae, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - OREO
Oreo is a clever little man who has adjusted to life amazingly well without having any sight. We’re not sure how or when Oreo lost his sight so we took him to see Dr Mark Bilson our Opthamologist of choice for an opinion as to whether any treatment or surgery could be done to give Oreo some vision. Unfortunately the specialist thinks that Oreo’s vision loss is related to his brain and as we don’t have any history on Oreo it is even harder to work out his problem.
Despite his blindness Oreo has adjusted well to his foster carers home, he was initially very unsure about what was happening in his world but with time, love and patience he settled in and has gained lots of confidence.
Oreo’s foster carer recently went on holidays for a week so we had to move him to another carer during that time and Oreo quickly showed his new foster carer just how clever he was. He managed to navigate the very busy back garden and to find his way back up the stairs into the house on the first afternoon. Oreo is completely house trained and will hang on all day until his foster carer comes home and takes him out to toilet.
Oreo would be OK as an only dog with a family who is at home more often than not, or if he had a calm doggie buddy that wouldn’t startle him if his new family were at work during the day.
Oreo must have access to the house at all times via a doggie door or an open door. His coat his fairly low maintenance just requiring a brush and a bath every couple of weeks.
Oreo is a gorgeous little dog with a wonderful placid nature, he was impounded because his owners no longer wanted him, they just opened the gate and let him out…when contacted by the pound to say he was in custody the owners surrendered him.
Oreo comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested. The adoption fee is $495. Oreo is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Oreo, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - HANK
KELPIE STAFFY MIX
Hank needs to find a new home urgently as his owner has had to move into a home unit. His owners are very sad but Hank really does need a back yard to mooch around in and a home unit just doesn’t cut it.
Hank is a very handsome lad with a wonderful nature, he gets along famously with humans of all ages and especially loves children. He is an active dog and will require regular exercise in his new home.
Hank is really good with other large dogs when he is at the dog park and he doesn’t mind playing with dogs who are smaller than him either. When he is on lead Hank may bark at other dogs to get their attention so that he can have a sniff and get to know them. In some dogs this can be typical behaviour if they have not been trained appropriately. Hank is a young dog and with the right owner will do well with some training in that area.
Hank comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested. The adoption fee is $295.00 Hank is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Hank, please email Denise
CAVALIER BEAGLE MIX
ADOPT A DOG - BRONX
Bronx came to us with a torn cruciate ligament on his back leg. His previous owner was unable to afford the surgery so we agreed to take him on, do surgery to fix his painful leg and then rehome him. Bronx is currently living with an older female, once he became used to her he decided that he does like a bit of company so a home with another compatible female dog will be best for him. When he has recovered Bronx will show you just how much he enjoys playing with his ball and other toys, we expect his recovery time from the cruciate surgery will be around 6 weeks so he should be available at the end of April all going well.
Bronx would love a home where he has access via a doggie door or similar, he sleeps inside in his bed and is a fairly low maintenance dog in regards to his coat. Bronx will need a bath and a brush to keep him looking and feeling great. Bronx will also need a nice walk every day once he is fully recovered.
Bronx comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heart worm tested, he has also had a dental and surgery to repair a torn cruciate ligament on his back leg. The adoption fee is $495. Bronx is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Bronx, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - CURLY STU
Curly Stu is a big dog in a tiny body. He is fearless and bold, smart and hilarious which is understandable with the things he has gone through in his life.
He likes to explore the outdoors, snuffling around and eating grass. He truly is a momma’s boy in every sense, he will follow his mum and sometimes other human friends around the house or out in the yard, step by step. He is also very happy to show his opinion in his own ways when he thinks he is been ignored. Curly, loves his food but due to the delicate nature of his mouth, is not given too much of hard food. Very small bites will be ideal and soft food is great for him, he has had several teeth removed due to a diet of junk food before he came to us. Curly is ideal for a family or a couple with another dog/s. He loves small children and is not fazed when picked up. He is hilariously smart and shows all the characteristics of a funny little Poodle.
He came to us with some medical issues which we have resolved while he was in foster care. He has had a knee operation and several teeth removed in a dental operation, but who hasn’t. His health is now excellent and he takes his medication without fuss, he is only on anti-inflamatories fr his knee now.
He LOVES his toys and hates to give his favorite toys to others, so he is smart enough to hide them and act innocent if anyone asks where they have gone.
Curly is a beautiful boy who has completely captured the hearts of his foster family. He will win anybody and everybody he will meet.
If you are looking for a hilariously funny little companion who is good with kids, people and other dogs, Curly could be the boy you have been looking for.
Curly has a high maintenance Poodle coat that will require regular grooming and brushing, he is a house dog and will need access via a doggie door or similar at all times.
Curly Stu comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, he has had a heart worm test, dental and surgery to one of his back legs. The adoption fee is $495. Curly Stu is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Curly Stu, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - FLORIN
MALTESE SHIH TZU MIX
Hello big wide world. My name is Florin and my foster-mum says I’m the sweetest little fellow. My favourite thing to do is to snuggle up with her on the lounge. (Actually, my real favourite is to sleep on her bed, but she only lets me do that when there’s a scary thunderstorm outside. ). I also like going for walks (not too far, about half an hour is perfect for me). I get on OK with other dogs, and I don’t mind meeting people so long as they’re sitting down – I get nervous when they stand up and tower over me. I know how to use a doggy door, and I like being able to go in and out (I got upset when I found I’d been locked out once). I’d be happy to have a home where I was the only dog, or to share with another smallish dog. I haven’t been taught much about coming when I’m called, or walking nicely on a lead, but I’m trying to learn these things in my foster home.
Florins foster carer has this to say – he is really sweet. I think he’s been a loved boy at some point. He knew how to use the doggie door but really did not understand what was happening when I’d set it so he could get out but not back in again. Florin is a bit nervous – as mentioned, particularly when people stand up. I took him to coffee and he was happy to meet people and sit on a couple of other ladies’ laps. He also seemed OK with a guy who was there. But he did not like it when my neighbour came to meet him (my neighbours are thinking of adopting a dog and thought he may suit) and were standing over him And is over 6ft! Florin has a hearty appetite and loves to eat.
Florins new home must have access via a doggie door, he is house trained and has a coat that will require regular grooming to keep him nice and tiday.
Florin comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heart worm tested and he has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Florin is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Florin, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - CHLOE
POODLE MALTESE MIX
Chloe was surrendered to the Pound by her owner as her Vet had told her that Chloe had a serious problem with her back legs and would need an MRI. We were told about Chloe’s problem and asked by the Pound to take her in for rescue.
We took Chloe straight to our Vet who suggested that we do x-rays of her spine and back legs first and foremost. The result of the x-rays told us that the bones in her spine and legs are all in the right order and condition and that her problem would be coming from her spinal chord, we were advised by our Vet not to do an MRI as there is nothing that can be done for Chloe anyway. Despite her problem Chloe is a beautiful, happy, playful girl, she is in foster care with other small dogs and enjoys their company. Chloe has a skip in her step (back legs only) and when she wee’s or poo’s she goes around in a circle because she doesn’t have the strength in her back legs to hold herself in one position while toileting. When she is walking or running she does not have a problem as she is moving when doing those things.
Chloe loves to cuddle on the couch with her foster carer and her foster doggie brothers and sisters. She has no idea that she isn’t exactly the same as them so goes about her day enjoying her life like any normal dog. Chloe just pee’s, poo’s and walks differently. Chloe would enjoy a home with another small, friendly and playful dog, and with a family who will love her and look after her forever.
Chloe’s coat will require regular grooming and brushing, she is a house dog and uses a doggie door for access to inside and out.
Chloe comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested and she has had x-rays of her spine and back legs. The adoption fee is $495. Chloe is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Chloe, please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - LECIA
BULL ARAB MIX
AGE: 18 WEEKS
Get ready to fall head over heels in love with the gorgeous Lecia!
Still a pup, not yet a dog, Lecia has a soft and gentle disposition, her favourite activity is couch cuddles and hanging with her humans. Lecia’s breed is anyone’s guess, a bit of working dog, a bit of terrier, whatever kind of dog she is Leica is certainly adorable and at around 7 months of age she only weighs 10kgs.
Leica came from rural NSW, she was in a bit of a state upon arrival but she has come along in leaps and bounds in foster care. Whilst she can be nervous of new situations, she is gaining confidence and learning lots of good doggy manners in her day to day life. Leica plays well with other dogs, loves toys and chasing the ball (returning it is a work in progress), she had mastered sit and is working hard on her stays, she sleeps well in her crate and is learning about how to be left at home alone.
She is housetrained and walks well on leash!
Lecia’s ideal home would be one where her family will be home more often than not, we feel she would do well as the only dog in the home or with an older, confident male dog to keep her company and show her the ropes.
Lecia must have access to the inside via a doggie door or similar, she’s looking to be truly part of a family and you can’t do that when you’re locked in the backyard.
Daily exercise is very important, a good walk, a trip to the park as well as access to lots of mental stimulation like food puzzles would be awesome.
Ongoing training is important for all puppies and Lecia is no exception, her new family will have to be committed to continued training to ensure she grows to be a good doggy citizen. Lecia is very food motivated, which is a total bonus.
Lecia comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention. The adoption fee is $495. Lecia is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Lecia, please email Denise

ADOPT A DOG - NIKITA
POMERANIAN CHIHUAHUA MIX
Our dear little Russian fox. Nikita has a luxurious coat, dark eyes and stunning ears that would make her look at home swanning around in a Chekhov play. Like most Russian heroines with ‘a past’ she is still a little overwhelmed and timid, but with gentle training and love she will blossom into the superstar she can be.
She came into fostercare with two luxating patellas which have been corrected with surgery which means they are now fixed with no chance or recurrence. She absolutely loves trit trotting along for daily walks, but for the moment she can’t go very far or fast, this will change once she is 100% recovered. She will also need a house with no stairs. She finds children overwhelming and scary, so we will rehome her in a place where she does not have to deal with them on a daily basis. She takes comfort from other confident little dogs, so she must have a companion in her new home to help her settle in.
Nikita’s foster mum adores her and only wants the best for her, somewhere she will be allowed to sleep on the bed and eat beef treats occasionally (only occasionally, Russian heroines needs to look lithe). Her coat will require regular grooming.

CHIHUAHUA POMERANIAN MIX
ADOPT A DOG - WINNIE
Winnie is a gentle, fluffy 3.5kg senior girl who appears to be a long hair Chihuahua cross. Her favourite things include sitting on her bed close to her human and sunbaking outside on her bed in the full sun worshipping her little heart away. She loves to be tucked up under her fostermum’s chin where she will cuddle up and close her eyes blissfully, just happy to be loved.
Whilst we don’t know Winnie’s age, we do know she is a senior and we’re approximating her age as 10 years. Winnie came into rescue quite thin but with a good feeding program has put on weight. She tends to be a bit fussy with what she eats and will need her human to put a little more effort into her meals instead of just opening a can of dog food. Her favourites are cooked rump steak, cooked beef mince and Tuckertime dog food roll. As she doesn’t have many teeth left, she loves her food cut in little pieces for her to swallow.
She also had some eye issues when she arrived and after an operation and TLC from SASH, she’s all better now, however she needs a family committed to giving her eye drops twice a day for the rest of her life to ensure her good eye health continues. Her coat will need regular brushing to keep her beautiful and tangle free.
Winnie loves her humans so much that she would prefer to be an only dog. She does have a tendency to have a minor (toothless) snap at dogs that are too close to her human pack. Having said that, Winnie loves humans whether it be adults or children. She loves being picked up and patted and could put up with it all day. She recently spent a day at the Dog Lovers Show being patted by thousands of people and proved to be completely bombproof with humans big and small.
Winnie negotiates the 5 outdoor steps at her foster home well during the day but needs to be carried up the stairs at night time. Don’t think because she’s a senior that she’s a slow, fragile dog. Winnie loves going to the dog park with her foster carer and exploring all the smells, she also enjoys a trot around the neighbourhood to see what the neighbours are up to.
Winnie is a house dog and must have access at all times, her coat will require regular grooming to keep her looking and feeling gorgeous.
Winnie comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention, she has also had a dental and eye surgery performed by Dr Mark Bilson an Opthalmologist at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital. The adoption fee is $495. Winnie is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Winnie please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - ECHO
Echo is a dear little man with a very distinctive look. His beautiful features are matched by his personality, he is a complete love-bug. He adores people and would like to be with them more often than not. He is affectionate with people but also loves playing with other small, gentle dogs. For this reason we will only consider a home with another lovely dog as a companion. He has been tested with children and finds the tiny ones a bit startling so we would consider older kids that understand canine behaviour. He is excellent on the leash and can use the doggy door.
His ideal home is with someone who is home more often than not or where his little doggy friend and he can play the day away. He must be allowed access into the house while you are out, we will not consider him as an outside dog. His coat will require regular grooming to keep him comfortable. He loves training and sees it as an opportunity to show off to his humans, tuck a treat in your hand and watch him learn. If you have older children, give them the opportunity to work with him to turn him into the most beautiful little buddy.
Echo has a high maintenance coat that will require twice weekly brushing and regular tidying up to keep him looking and feeling great.
Echo comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention, he has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Echo is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Echo please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - PRINCESS SPARKLY PANTS
Are you confident enough to own a dog that is more charismatic than you? A dog that would break instagram if she had her own account? A smart little confident soul with quite the swagger?
Meet Princess Sparkly Pants. Once you have met her you won’t forget her in a hurry. She is TINY but don’t let that fool you, her personality enters the room before she does. She came to the Dog Lovers Show in Sydney to meet her subjects but kept popping next door to say hi to the Greyhounds in the Greyhound Rescue tent. Being a confident little thing, she loves big dogs and is quite happy to be the welcoming committee. She is housetrained, fit and healthy and goes for long walks with her foster carer. She thoroughly enjoys trotting along stickbeaking into everyone’s yards.
Princess Sparkly Pants (how could we call her anything else) is looking for a Poodle savvy home. She is absolutely delightful, but like many Poodles needs gentle but firm rules. She is busting to be a good girl, you just have to softly show her what that means. She is a complete sweetheart who will blossom with the right love and training.
As with all princesses, she would like to sleep on the bed with you, be cuddled a LOT and needs regular grooming to keep her ready for the paparazzi camera. She is looking for someone who is home more often than not, a retired active person would be perfect. She would like to be an only dog, but you will have to take her to the dog park because she is very dog social. We would consider a slightly larger (not hard with her size) male dog. We will not rehome her with a female as she wants to be the absolute centre of someone’s universe and can get a bit bossy with rival princesses.
Princess Sparkly Pants is a house dog and must have access via a doggie door or similar whenever she wants!
Princess Sparkly Pants comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention, she has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Princess is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Princess please email Denise
ADOPT A DOG - NOODLE
Noodle is a lovely little man. Sweet and sensitive, he loves a snuggle on the couch as much as an interesting walk to the park or a play with his mates.
He’s a terrier through and through, probably a foxie-type, with a curly ‘noodley’ tail. A real cutie with one ear up and one ear down, he has a head tilt move that just screams ‘what you talking ‘bout?!’. Whatever his breed, he is good looking boy with lovely soft, neat fur.
While he has been hanging out with his fosterer, he’s been getting along really well with his foster-sister doggies! We’d definitely recommend Noodle goes to a home where he is not the single pup as he will get so much more out of life with a friend.
Noodle will benefit from positive socialisation (spending time with people, and with other dogs outside the home). Noodle needs an experienced owner with a soft approach, and with continued socialisation his confidence will continue to improve and he’ll become the awesome dog he always was meant to be. A home without children will be best for Noodle.
Noodle learned some basic obedience, but would benefit from continued training. He walks well on lead and really enjoys his outings.
Noodle is house trained and sleeps soundly in a crate at night. He has a lovely soft and sleek low maintenance coat that will require an occasional bath and a regular brush to keep him clean and tidy.
Noodle requires access to the house via a doggie door or similar and he must sleep inside.
Noodle comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention, he has also had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Noodle is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Noodle please email Denise
