Sid

Sid

Great Dane - male

Sid has sadly been surrendered to DCH as his owner is allergic to him. He has been raised since a puppy in a family home with cats and small dogs and he is great with them having a loving, gentle nature.

He is a well behaved boy but being large does need an owner experienced with handling a large dog and all that comes with that (ie kids can be knocked over easily). Like many great danes Sid can be timid at first but then is very adoring once he gets to know you, he can similarly be wary of other large dogs on first meeting, but with positive reinforcement over a couple of meetings he will be good friends with them.

Sid was adopted on 12 June 2018 after 1 month in foster care

Cassi

Cassi

Mastiff X - female

Cassie is not only a beautiful looking girl but very well mannered and gentle in nature. She has a loving playful side to her that just makes her adorable to whoever she meets. Very well socialized (in care with another dog see photo) and loves the company of all, rides well in the car, walks nicely on a lead and is great with children. Cassie is a medium/large sized dog and may still fill out some given she is only 18mths old. Exercising her with walks and leash free runs is part of her weekly routine. She is very obedient for the limited training she has had and will undoubtedly improve with your help and loving care. Cassie has been sleeping inside at night with no issues (toilet trained) once snuggled up in her spot she doesn't move, that could also be on you if invited .We are looking for an active, fun filled family or person’s environment for Cassi where she is accepted and loved for sweet personality and loving nature. There is one thing we must tell you about Cassi, she can jump fences with the ease of an Olympian. So your fencing will have to be colour bond at minimum as when you go out she will try to find a way to join you. Best to still have the high fencing. Cassie loves the company of other dogs but doesn't like sharing her food during feeding time, so if you have another dog best to feed them separately. Cassie was reluctantly returned to DCH due to her new owner needing to move overseas. During the 4 months with here new owner Cassie was put through a vigorous training program helping her to improve in her obedience.
Cassie is vaccinated, de sexed and micro chipped and ready to go to a loving home.

Cassi was adopted on 12 June 2018 after 9 months in foster care

Cappuccino

Cappuccino

Poodle - female

Sponsorship Needed

Cap is a sweet and gentle mini poodle who loves cuddles and pats, looking for her new forever home. She is good around people and other dogs (never fights, barks or growls except if she is on her own territory if she hears the neighbor's dog barking).

She has come into rescue after being found on the streets in December. Due to some ongoing health issues, the pound she was in was not able to keep her for long and so reached out to our foster carers.
She underwent and successfully responded to the following procedures while in foster care:

Teeth scale and clean
-Two rotten teeth extractions which prevented her from eating properly which is now all better
-Desexing
-Removal of lumps which were tested and were pronounced benign and the stitches are fully healed).
She was on steroid medication for her skin up until the surgery but not any more.

Ongoing medication (roughly $70/month):

-Eyes: Medicated eye ointment for her dry eyes.

-Heart: 2x daily heart med liquid taken on an empty stomach one hour before breakfast and one hour before dinner. She takes this very easily.

Her medical procedure fees were in excess of $1700. If you can help sponsor some of these costs please see how below. *Update 20/4/18: thanks to Jayne, Fiona, Suzanne, Rosita, Robert, Katie and Emily for their donations which have covered $1300 of Cap's vet fees so far*

Cappuccino was adopted on 10 June 2018 after 5 months in foster care

Madaline

Madaline

Pug - female

Maddie is a beautiful little pug who is both friendly and playful and loves to snuggle up by your side.

She is very well socialised and has a friendly nature when meeting other dogs. She is well trained and easy to walk on the lead.

Maddie currently lives in an apartment with a cat. She gets on well with the cat that also lives in the apartment. She is toilet trained. Prior to living in the apartment, Maddie lived on a large property with other dogs so she is used to living in small apartments and large houses.

She is an older dog with lots of love to give and would suit all family types and all dwelling types as well as people with or without cats.

Madaline was adopted on 02 June 2018 after 2 weeks in foster care

Zeus

Zeus

English Staffy - male

Zeus finds himself inbetween homes after his original owners could no longer look after him.

He is very playful and energetic but also loves to cuddle up to people, he’s very well behaved he’s got general training like sitting, shaking and toilet trained to go outside only just might take a few weeks to get him to learn his new rules in a new home. He’s good with kids as his old owners had some and they were all over him. I think his old owners hit him a lot because he can get a bit scared if you raise your hand too quick.

Zeus comes microchipped, vaccinated and desexed for a just a reimbursement of his desexing costs.

If you can help young Zeus to get the stable, loving family he deserves then please contact me.

Oscar

Oscar

Kelpie Cross Staffy - male

Hi I'm Oscar. I was brought from a Country Pound to Sydney in April with my brother and 2 sisters. I am a friendly pup and have been in the company of two lovely mature female canines. I am mischievious like all pups and love my food. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my life with new friends, both human and furry.

Oscar was adopted on 26 May 2018 after 1 weeks in foster care

Stella

Stella

Wolfhound X - female

Stella is a beautiful one year old Wolfhound X. She is much smaller than a purebred Wolfhound and is about half the height of a purebred Wolfhound.

She is super friendly and will take to you straight away. She loves both people and other dogs. She loves to run and play in the park and playing with other dogs. I have four dogs of my own and I have never seen them play with another dog the way they play with Stella. She is always playing with one or other of them. Even my 10 year old Terrier X, Teddy, who doesn't like many dogs, loves playing with Stella.

Being only a 1 year old Stella still needs some training and is still in the puppy/young dog phase of life. This means she still likes to play with shoes and the like and you can't keep these types of things lying about.

Stella would benefit from some training and would benefit from someone who has the patience to teach this young girl what is expected of her. She loves nothing more than spending times with you. She would be a great family pet but is not suitable for a family with very young children. She would also make a great playmate for another dog. If you don't have a family she would also be suitable for you.

She needs about half an hour exercise a day and is good but not perfect on the lead.

Stella was adopted on 24 May 2018 after 3 weeks in foster care

Rocky The Rotti

Rocky The Rotti

Rottweiler X Bull Mastiff - male

**27/4/18 UPDATE from foster carer: Rocky has been having an absolute BLAST these last 2 months with me! We take regular drives to the farm where he gets to enjoy swimming in the dam, running through the paddocks and being a fabulous farm dog. When we're home in Sydney, he and I enjoy his daily walks at the dog park and he keeps me company when at home. His potential home didn't work out due to transport issues and timing, so Rocky is back up for adoption due to no fault of his own. I am really enjoying my time with him, but I have now responded to all email enquiries, and am ready for him to start meeting potential families again!**

Say hello to Rocky The Rotti! He's actually a Rotti x Bull Mastiff and is taller than your average purebred rottweiler, and he is an absolute DREAM!

Coming from a very loving home, Rocky had to say goodbye to his owner just before his 2nd birthday, as they were relocating overseas and were unable to manage the expense of quarantine and flights to take him with them. It was a very hard decision to make for them, and when you meet Rocky you will understand - he is gorgeous!

He is very well trained and doesn't jump up on people, knows how to heel on lead (so doesn't pull), sits and waits for his food, has solid recall and LOVES going for car rides. He is also very well toilet trained and is suitable for apartment living (yes, even big dogs can manage inside with the right lifestyle and daily exercise!).

He is also cat friendly and has ignored the chooks and horses on the farm aswell.

Basically if you are after a fully-trained, loveable companion who will follow you around the house and who is happiest when snoozing at your feet, or walking around the house with his favourite fluffy-toy, then Rocky is for you!

He comes with his very own dog-couch, automatic ball thrower, seatbelt harness (for car rides), clicker (for training), lead, collar, blankie, water/food bowl and toys.

Rocky The Rotti was adopted on 13 May 2018 after 2 months in foster care

Jax

Jax

English Staffy - male

"My name is Jax, I'm a friendly, obedient, and VERY affectionate. My owner died and I miss him a lot.

I'm 11 years old, but not much slower than when I was young! I am bouncy and LOVE walks even with my touch of arthritis.
The humans here love me but I'd love a home with a human of my own. (No cats though, I just can't stand them.)

Would you like to share my enthusiastic cuddles, happy walks, slobbery kisses and devoted attention? Those are my best talents!"

We have had him for a month or so and Jax is great with my teenagers and dogs. I would not recommend him with younger kids because if startled or touched on a sensitive spot he can growl (he is starting to lose a bit of peripheral vision). He is relatively well trained, he knows Sit, Lay Down, Back, On your bed. We have taught him a new skill, lying down before eating, and not eating until the command "OK!".

We are home a lot which is good, he needs a fair bit of company. Best suited to a home with another dog/s, and/or someone around the house a lot. We did not know his previous owner so not sure what his life was like before. He is still suffering a little anxiety from all the upheaval in his life but he is SUCH a loving and sweet dog, just a darling to have around, he deserves lots of walks and a great loving home.

If you can offer Jax the retirement home he deserves please contact us.

Dash

Dash

kelpie X - female

A very gorgeous and pretty girl. Dash is a little shy to begin with and has been playing hide and seek with her carer. She shows signs of some past heavy handedness and is nervous meeting men for the first time. She seems far more comfortable when meeting women. Eventually coming around to show her very affectionate cuddly side to all, she just needs to take her time. Super switched on and a intelligent girl, picks up quickly if time is given to a little training. Dash shows no interest in the cats or the chickens which share her surroundings, however enjoys the company of the carers dog. She has bursts of playtime and likes her quiet times too. Not a needy dog, happy to have her own space.
Great with small children and walks really well on the lead. She is a gentle dog but can be a little skittish, she will need time to adjust but once she feels you can be trusted she opens up and is really adoring. Dash is a grazer with her food and toilet trained. She sleeps inside at night and likes to stay close by you, during the day she is an outdoor dog. Dash has had little past training and will need understanding owner/owners who are prepared to spend time teaching her simple commands such as recall and stay. Overall Dash is improving daily and trusting her carer and environment more and more. Clearly she has experienced unkindness from a human being before. We are looking to re home Dash to an active loving and very kind family or individual who will love and care for her as much as we do. Dash would also do well paired with another socialized friendly dog.

Dash was adopted on 11 March 2018 after 3 months in foster care
