BASSIE DAP 2

ADOPT A DOG: BASSIE

BASSIE 1 DAP

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.

SUNDAE DAP 2

ADOPT A DOG - SUNDAE

SUNDAE DAP MAIN

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

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 - WINNIE

ADOPT A DOG - WINNIE
on-trial

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 - NOODLE

NOODLES DAP 1

MALE

FOXIE

AGE:     1

SMALL SIZE

NOODLE DAP 2

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

mabel and mack beagles 1 dap

Mack is 1 year old and Mabel is 3 years old, they are an extremely bonded pair of BEAGLES and we are committed to finding a HOME for them TOGETHER.

Mabel and Mack have very sweet natures and must go to a home where the owners are not away from home for long periods of time. Beagles are mischievous when they are left to their own devices so this point is very important.

Mack and Mabel did not have any training in their previous home, they were living with elderly owners who did not walk them or pay them much attention at all. Since being in foster care with our very committed foster carer Trace and her family they have learnt some basic commands, their names have been changed and they are getting used to living with a family who want only the best for them in the long term.

Since going into foster care with our organisation Mack and Mabel have enjoyed going on long walks sniffing and sniffing and enjoying all the smells the great outdoors has to offer. As part of their daily routine it is important that they are walked and or taken to the local off leash park to run and play. Mack and Mabel are toilet trained and can use a doggy door, they require access to part of the house at all times when they go to their new forever home. They are crated at night and sleep curled up together quietly until let out in the morning.

Mack and Mabel play with each other constantly, Mack also enjoys chasing the ball and playing with their rope toys. It is very important that Mack and Mabel go to a home with people who KNOW and UNDERSTAND the BEAGLE BREED. Beagles are busy dogs and need to be stimulated, walked, trained, loved and understood.

This gorgeous pair have low maintence coats and require a brush and a bath to keep them comfortable. They are house dogs and must have access via a doggie door to part of the home when their owners are out.

Mabel and Mack come desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, have had a dental and they are on flea, worm and heartworm prevention. The adoption fee for both dogs is $900. Mabel and Mack are not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Mabel and Mack please email Denise

Sam is young at 2 years of age and we feel times have been a little tough for him in his past life, he is very wary of children and can be reactive to them so a home without access to children will be best. Sam is also a bit of a chicken when it comes to being examined by the vet.

Sam is beginning to play with his furry foster family and doesn’t mind a ride in the trolley around the local Bunnings Hardware store…..he gets lots of admiring glances but children are told to just give him a smile and a wave or they may frighten him with faces that are too close to his.

Sam is able use the doggie door and will sit on command for his treats. He must go to a home with dog savvy people who understand the personality and character traits of a little dog who has not been in an ideal home until he came into foster care with Sushma and her lovely family. He really enjoys going out for a walk and is very good on lead.

Sam has a coat that will grow and require ongoing grooming, he is a house dog and would like access inside and out 24 hours a day via a doggie door or similar.

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