ADOPT A DOG - SONNY

ADOPT A DOG - SONNY

SONNY is a calm, older gentleman who likes nothing more than relaxing after a hard days work! Sonny is a compact little Maltese that currently shares his home with a few other dogs, he doesn’t mind their company but human company is best and would suit a retired couple that are after a dog to take on strolls
around the neighbourhood, help with the gardening and watch TV with. Sonny is a sweet boy, he likes the simple life but occasionally this comes with a side of attitude, whilst these moments of grumpiness are only fleeting, his new family need to understand that he simply can’t be all sugar and no spice!
Sonny is housetrained, has a coat that requires regular grooming and is also on medication for epilepsy, his seizures are very controlled and this medication is
fairly inexpensive.

 

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 JIMMY

JIMMY DAP 1

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.

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

ADOPT A DOG - THEODORE

THEORDORE DAP

Hi everyone. My name is Theo, and if you’re looking for a dog to be your constant companion, I’m the guy for you. I like sitting on my person’s lap, going for walks with my person, going to coffee with my person, being brushed by my person … You get the picture. I don’t mind other dogs, but I’d rather spend time with my person. I’m a little bit scared of thunderstorms, but my little legs aren’t big enough to get me onto my person’s bed, so I just sit near her. In fact, I’m a little bit nervous about anything I don’t understand, or that surprises me. I’d rather not live with small children, because they tend to do things that might surprise me. But otherwise I’m pretty easy going – I just want to be with my very own special person. (I do shed a bit of hair, but I’m happy to be brushed.)

Theodore is a house dog and has a pretty coat that will require regular brushing and a trim to keep him looking good. He requires access via a doggie door or similar.

Theodore comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested and he has had a dental. The adoption fee is $395. Theodore is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Theodore, please email Denise

ADOPT A DOG - BOBBY

BOBBY BOY

BOBBY is your typical terrier, he loves long walks, playing with his toys, chasing birds and curling up on the end of your bed after a hard days play. Bobby is currently in foster care with an active couple who take him walking everyday, he is inquisitive and fun and makes sure you know when someones at the door or calling you on the phone.
Bobby is best suited to a home with no cats or small children, he can be picky about his doggy pals but we feel he may be okay with another relaxed female dog. Bobby is respectful of your pace and would prefer to sit next to you on the couch rather than perched up on your lap, he is housetrained and is a good boy when left at home alone.

We feel the perfect home for Bobby would be with an active couple who did not leave him all day, everyday at home alone, a quieter home with a yard he could run around in and have a game of tug would be ideal. Bobby has a short coat, that is easy to maintain but does shed so will require regular brushing.

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

Isn’t that face just scrumptious! Bernie is the cutest little dog and is ever so sweet and loving.
Bernie would love a quiet home, she doesn’t mind other dogs, she currently lives with a few but wouldn’t minD life as an only dog provided she was with her humans far more often than not. Bernie is a pretty chilled out, little lady, she likes a little walk around the neighbourhood, snuggling on the couch and napping on her bed. Bernie however has a distinct dislike for children, they can be a little unpredictable for Bernie’s liking so she would prefer she had nothing to do with them… Bernie is very comfortable in her adult only home, she is really quite a delight, she has a low maintenance coat that only needs the occasional brush, is housetrained and must have access inside at all times.

PEANUT DAP 2

PEANUT IS A GOLDEN OLDIE

Dear little Peanut came to us sad and in pain as she couldn’t use one of her hind legs because she needed cruciate surgery to repair her damaged knee. Fast forward to today and she is a brand new girl. Peanut is estimated to be 10 and has vision in only one eye due to a cataract but there is no slowing down for this girl. She has the use of all four legs now and she is making up for lost time. Peanut gets on well with her two foster dog friends that she lives with and delights in noodling around the garden beds with them looking for lizards and anything else they may find. She has learnt to walk on a lead and thoroughly enjoys getting out for a stroll around the neighborhood.

Peanut can be a little reserved when meeting new people but she soon warms up and is a very affectionate dog. She loves her food so along with breakfast and dinner being her favourite times of the day, cuddles with her family are super important as well. Peanuts ideal home would be one where there is another small dog for company and folks who either work from home or work part time. She isn’t suitable for a home with small children or cats.

Peanut’s coat requires a quick bath and brush, she is a house dog and uses a doggie door to go inside and out to the garden.

Peanut comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested and she has had a dental. The adoption fee is $395. Peanut is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Peanut, please email Denise

COCO WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION UNTIL EARLY FEBRUARY PROVIDING ALL GOES WELL WITH HER SURGERY AND RECOVERY.

Coco has had specialist surgery for her liver shunt and is now recovering with her foster carer.  We are all very pleased with her recovery so far.

Introducing Coco our lovely little Poodle Mix. Sadly Coco was surrendered to us when her owner realised that something was not right with her health, she would only eat vegetables and was also very thin. We agreed to take Coco on knowing that there was a health issue.

Coco was taken to Beverley Hills Animal Hospital where our vet Dr Dominic started with blood tests, the test results showed that there was something very serious going on inside Coco’s little body. The next step was a trip to the SMALL ANIMAL SPECIALIST HOSPITAL for a CT scan and more blood work, then by a process of elimination Dr Phil Brain diagnosed Coco with a liver shunt. Fortunately Coco has been diagnosed with an external liver shunt that should respond well to specialist surgery, Coco will be having her surgery in two weeks time and it will be done by our good friend and excellent specialist Dr Andrew Marchevski.

This type of surgery will cost thousands of dollars but once it is done and Coco has recovered she should go on to lead a normal and happy life.

If you would like to donate towards Coco’s surgery please go to the Give Now link https://www.givenow.com.au/deniseatpaws

Despite all of her ills Coco is a happy, friendly, playful dog. She gets along very well with the foster dogs she is currently living with and is enjoying life with her foster carers.

SUNDAE LISA PICTURE 2 DAP

ADOPT A DOG - SUNDAE

SUNDAE LISA PICTURE DAP

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

Ringo is a lovely, friendly sook who will follow you and join in any fun you want. He wants to play and chase and explore all day.

Ringo is up for anything his humans can invent and will be a faithful companion to some lucky family.

ADOPT A PAIR - DIEGO AND FRIEDA

DIEGO AND FRIEDA ARE GOLDEN OLDIES

DIEGO is a suave little man, he is sweet, friendly and loves his best friend Frieda more than anything!
Arriving with a severe flea allergy Diego was missing all the hair on his back, but after a few weeks in care his hair is returning to it’s full glory and soon he will look like a million bucks! Don’t let Diego’s little grey face fool you, he is very playful! He and his BFF Frieda play most of the day and after play they sleep for the rest of the day, they are friendly with other dogs but only really have eyes for each other. Diego’s new home must include his girl Frieda, access inside at all times, a comfy spot on the couch, a good diet, short strolls around the neighbourhood and lots of cuddles. He has a high maintenance coat that requires regular grooming to ensure he always looks his best.

FRIEDA is a leggy blond with a sweet, gentle personality.
Her one true love is her best friend Diego, so we are rehoming them as a pair… a ready made family! Frieda arrived in care with severe flea allergy and was missing a lot of hair along her back but after a few weeks of medicated baths, Frieda is looking much better. She spends her days playing with Diego the Pom , sniffing around the garden and napping. She is certainly still spritely for double digits and would benefit from a home that would take both Frieda and Diego for leisurely walks around the neighbourhood. A home where both have access inside at their leisure, a bed big enough for both Frieda and Diego, regular trips to the groomers to ensure they look and feel their best and of course adequate cuddles on the couch is what we are looking for, for this cutie and her counterpart, Diego

Diego and Frieda come desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested and have had a dental. The adoption fee is $700 for the pair. Diego and Frieda are not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Diego and Frieda, please email Denise

ADOPT A DOG - BUFFY

BUFFY WITH SHONA MAIN

BUFFY came to us as her elderly owner was entering a nursing home and she had no where else to go. It was hard for Buffy initially but as time goes by she is starting to enjoy her new life. Buffy is still reasonably quiet and loves sitting on the couch with her humans enjoying snuggles and cuddling up, she hasn’t started to play yet but in time that will come.

Buffy enjoys going out for a walk or to the dog park with her foster dog sister, she is not crazy about having the lead attached but once it is on her its time to get walking.

Buffy is house trained and would suit a couple or family as an only dog, or with a nice small companion dog. She spends time with young gentle children and gets along very well with them and loves their affection.

Buffy doesn’t need a huge walk, she loves to go in and out of the doggie door sniffing around the garden and then coming back inside to rest on her bed or on the cosy couch.

Buffy has a coat that will require regular grooming and brushing to keep her fresh as a daisy. She is a house dog and must have access inside and out at her leisure.

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

CHARLIE CANBERRA DAP 2

CHARLIE IS A GOLDEN OLDIE

Dear Charlie, what a lovely little chap. He’s had a hair cut in the pound that did him no favours but much like Charlie Chaplin in a black and white movie, his eyebrows and mustache are growing in nicely! Very soon he will be sporting the flamboyant mo and eyebrows that the Schnauzers wear with such flair and combined with the long legs and smarts of the Poodle, he is about to bust out as a gorgeous little man who turns heads wherever he goes.

He is an all-rounder. Good in the car, waits politely for his dinner, house-trained, calm, sleeps quietly throughout the night and most importantly, is very friendly! He is an equal-opportunity lover, he bustles about making friends with people and other nice dogs. He will be an absolute joy to the lucky family who gets to add him to their team.

Because he is such a friendly little chap, he needs to go with a family that has another nice little dog for him to play with as we do not want him to be alone for long periods of time. He’d probably like a child or two as well if you have them! He is only small weighing in at about 5kgs so kids over the age of six or seven would probably be best.

He has a medium length coat so he will need someone who is committed to grooming him as we do not ever want him to get into the state he was when he arrived in care. He is an absolute hit not only with his foster carer, but also with her entire family who loved him on sight as well.

Charlie is a house dog and would love a home with a doggie door or similar that he can go in and out of the house when he likes.

Charlie comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested. The adoption fee is $395. Charlie is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Charlie, please email Denise

Marlene is a sweet, loving, rather shy dog, who loves a lap and a cuddle. She’ll sleep peacefully beside, under, or on the bed and enjoys her food. She doesn’t like the heat and dislikes thunder. Marlene would be happiest in a busy suburb because she loves people, dogs, kids and will play for hours, rumbling, rolling and chasing before flopping under the chair for a breather. She’d love a family with kids and another dog for company. She doesn’t mind being at home waiting for you provided she gets an interesting walk down to the park to meet her friends.

Marlene is a house dog and has a coat that will require regular grooming and brushing. She would also like access 24/7 inside and out via a doggie door or similar.

We haven’t been able to take him to SASH to see Dr Mark Bilson our preferred ophthalmologist for a diagnosis because Oreo is currently suffering with severe kennel cough and it is highly contagious.
