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.

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?

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

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

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.

BUNDY DAP 2

BUNDY is a GOLDEN OLDIE and a very sweet old soul who enjoys life to the max. Bundy does have a heart murmur so will need a family committed to daily medication and caring for a dog who does have medical issues. Bundy is currently doing very well on his heart medication Vetmedin.

Bundy’s new home should be with a family who have another small, friendly dog for company as Bundy does love other dogs.

Bundy has a lovely coat that will require regular grooming, he is a house dog requiring access via a doggie door.

SMALL ANIMAL SPECIALIST HOSPITAL REPORT:
Bundy had a grade 5/6 heart murmur best heard at the left apical region of the heart. The location of the murmur, combined with his breed and age are most consistent with a disease called myxomatous mitral valve degeneration (MMVD). This is a very common disease in older small breed dogs due to thickening and degeneration of the mitral valve. The disease can also affect the tricuspid valve (valve between the right atrium and ventricle of the heart) and, rarely, the aortic valve.
Echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) confirmed this disease as the cause of the heart murmur. His heart was enlarged but only mildly so at this stage.

Treatment:
Whilst Bundy does have heart enlargement at this time he does not have heart failure and as such early treatment with pimobendan (Vetmedin)
only is recommended at this stage to delay the onset of congestive heart failure. If Bundy does develop congestive heart failure, additional medications will be required for life.

Bundy must be monitored for signs of heart failure. The most effective method is to start monitoring his sleeping respiratory rate and keep
a log book of it. A normal sleeping respiratory rate is < 30 breaths/minute. Should his breathing rate become consistently > 40
breaths/minute chest X-rays may be necessary to determine whether Bundy requires diuretic treatment.

If Bundy is doing well, monitoring for progression of disease 6 monthly via chest X rays and/or echocardiography is recommended.

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

OREO DAP 2

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

HANK 1.jpg DAP 2

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

ADOPT A DOG - BINDI

BINDI POODLE DAP
on-trial

FEMALE

POODLE

AGE:   8

MINIATURE

 Bindi just loves people. She is a very active, loving, playful and at times an independent little girl. We would love to see Bindi go to a home where she will be another family member as that is very important to her, she must be loved for herself and not just be a companion for another dog in the home.

She waits for her breakfast every morning and makes cute little noises if you aren’t quick enough. She loves you to play with her toys and chase her, with her butt up in the air saying “come and get me”.

When company comes to the house Bindi is the first to greet them, and all who meet her leave only after they have fallen in love with her.
When you stroke her if you stop her little paw comes up to tell you to keep going.

She is house trained and will cry at the door to go outside.
Bindi loves to walk and gets so excited that she tangles herself in her lead, she will need patience and training as her excitement gets the better of her and she is all over the place whilst trying to speed up the pace with her little body pulling with all her might.
She just makes your heart melt and causes a lot of laughter.
Bindi prefers to sleep under the covers with you. When it is bed time she prepares herself to dive under the blanket.
She also loves the car, sitting in her booster seat so she can see out with her little ears blowing in the wind.

A family with another dog and children would suit her perfectly as she does love children, or an active couple with time to play and another dog for company when Mum and Dad are away.

Whoever is successful in adopting Bindi will feel like they have won the lottery.

Bindi is a house dog requiring access, she has a high maintenance coat that will require regular grooming.

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

BRONX DAP 1

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 $395.

Curly Stu is one irresistible little dude. Curly is as happy as a clam unaware of the health issues that are currently wracking his tiny little body. (Please read below) We have started the long and costly process of getting Curly back to good health, it might take a while but we have all the time in the world and just want to see Curly pain free and living the best life he possibly can. Curly is not currently available for adoption.

Curly Stu has a grade 4 laterally luxated patella. Patella’s are usually medially luxated but Curly Stu’s is luxated on the outside (lateral)
These are the most severe cases and fortunately are the rarest. The patella is permanently luxated and cannot be manipulated back into the groove. These are the most challenging cases to correct and will require specialist surgery. Curly’s back left leg is affected and must be corrected so that he can walk like a normal dog, at the moment the affected leg gives way causing him pain and discomfort.

Curly Stu also has chronic osteomyelitis in his jaw. Osteomyelitis of the jaw is inflammation of the jawbone (mandible or maxilla). This type of inflammation is most often caused by bacteria due to dental disease as is the case with Curly. Hornsby Vet Hospital removed as many teeth as could safely be removed. He is on antibiotics appropriate to his condition and his mouth will be reviewed two weeks out from the initial surgery. He will require more surgery when the vet knows that his jaw is stable and not in danger of collapsing. Curly has stitches in his jaw where the teeth were removed so as to try and stabilize his jaw. He is on pain relief for both his leg and mouth until we know he is out of pain.

Curly Stu comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, he has had a heart worm test and a dental. 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

LACHLAN NEW DAP 2
LACHLAN NEW DAP 1
on-trial

Lachie is a corgi x (schnauzer we think). He’s the coolest “schnorgi” we’ve ever met! Of course we never really know what breed a dog is unless the dog comes to us with an existing microchip.

Lachie is a very happy and playful small dog. He loves sitting on chairs… his short little legs never hold him back! Lachie sees a challenge and just goes for it, and if he doesn’t make it he just tries again – no harm, no foul. As very curious little guy, he checks things out and makes sure he knows what’s going on. Full of personality; he certainly makes his presence felt!

This little man is 7 years young: he has the enthusiasm and playfulness of a much younger dog.
Lachie’s a massive fan of giving and receiving cuddles…rolling over for a belly rub is a big favourite of his, and he’ll push his head under your hand for more pats if you forget he is there!
He also gets along great with his foster-sister dogs, and would be suitable for a home with another friend to play with.

At the moment, Lachie looks like he’s had a bad trip to the barbers… his hair has unfortunately fallen out in patches on his back due to an episode of alopecia (brought on by stress). However since he’s been at his foster home he hasn’t had to worry about anything! So his hair is growing back thick and fast and he’ll have a nice fluffy coat in no time.

Lachie is toilet trained and sleeps indoors, he would love access to the house via a doggie door or open door at all times.

He has a thick coat, that will only get thicker as it grows back. It will require require regular bathing and a brushing to keep him clean and tidy.

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

Tilly is a 4 year old Labrador Poodle mix, her Dad was a black standard Poodle and her Mum was a chocolate Labrador, Tilly looks more like her Mum and is very Labrador in nature. Tilly has a beautiful nature, she loves cuddles and thinks she is a lap dog, the closer she sits to you the better she likes it. Tilly has great manners, she sits on command, waits for her dinner, walks well on lead, is great in the car and above all she really loves to play. Tilly enjoys chasing the ball or the Frisbee then bringing it back and dropping it at your feet ready for another go. She has the most beautiful shinny chocolate coat and is very gentle with other little dogs. Tilly is in foster care with 4 little dogs, a cat, chickens and she is a perfect little lady with all of them. Tilly is toilet trained and will require access to the house at all times, she sleeps well all through the night.

Archer like Tilly has lovely manners, he sits on command, waits for you to put his dinner in front of him, walks well on lead, and is great in the car. Archer is also toilet trained and sleeps well through the night.

Tilly and Archer love the company of people so a home where they will get plenty of attention, exercise and playtime with their humans is essential. They both require regular daily exercise particularly Tilly. Tilly and Archer really enjoy being part of the family. Neither dog has spent a lot of time with small children and Tilly may be a little over exuberant for them. Tilly and Archer’s foster carers have fallen in love with this ready made doggy family, they say they really are a pair of sweeties.

Tilly and Archer are house dogs who do require access to the home via a doggie door or open door. Archer in particular has a high maintenance coat that will require regular trips to the groomer and a nice brush every other day.

ADOPT A DOG - TINA ARENA

TINA ARENA 1 DAP

What a small delightful girl Tina Arena is. She can be a little nervous and shy but is progressing daily and now rolls over for tummy rubs and a little play. Tina is super quiet unless you are too slow with her food and she will let you know to hurry up. Tina loves her food and crunches through her biscuits but adores the wet food that goes on top the most.

Tina Arena has probably had a break to one of her front legs, our Vet has x-rayed the leg and said there is nothing that can be done to fix it other than amputation, that surgery would be done purely for aesthetics and as she has learnt to walk on three legs we have decided not to put her through any unnecessary surgery. Tina does use the leg to balance herself and she also grooms her face with it, she does very well and it doesn’t stop her having a great life. She has also learnt to use the leg to go up and down stairs and we think she is very clever.

Tina sleeps soundly on the bed with one of her foster sisters, or alternatively snuggled up among her blankets in one of the many beds on the floor with her other foster sister. She has become used to wearing her jumper on the cooler nights which we take off in the morning when she’s ready to run outside to toilet.

Tina is still learning to toilet outside and she is getting better every day. Her carer thinks that when she gets a little bit anxious she may have an accident or two in the house.

Tina is young at heart, loves her humans and follows her carer all around the house. While she likes being outside she prefers the shade to the sun. She will require an open door or a doggie door that she can manage to go in and out of for toileting. Tina’s coat was shaved off due to severe matting but is growing back now, grooming on a regular basis will be needed.

She would prefer someone home more often than not, a doggy companion to lay and play with and older children who will not be all over her.

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

ADOPT A DOG - FLORIN

FLORIN DAP 1

MALE

MALTESE SHIH TZU MIX

AGE:    9

SMALL SIZE

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 $395. Florin is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Florin, please email Denise

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

Tillee and Tuppence are a very sweet little pair. Due to unfortunate circumstances their Mum can no longer have them, she contacted DAP via a vet clinic and asked if we would be able to find them a wonderful new home.

Tillee and Tuppence have always been loved dogs, they are completely house trained and use a doggie door with no issues. They are both very friendly and affectionate, good with other dogs and children.

Their diet has always been Hills Science dry food for small dogs their size. They are not used to a wet or raw diet.

Tuppence is quieter and more shy until she knows you (great lap dog), whereas Tilly is very active and playful and loves having the ball thrown for her. They are house dogs and must have access to their new home via a doggie door at all times.
