staffy X - male - 2 years and 5 months

What a seriously gorgeous and handsome boy Charlie is and he couldn't be happier now he has found himself in the company of friends.

Charlie's nature is very sweet and evenly tempered. Despite only being young, his play with dogs, cats, children and people is always gentle. In saying this, Charlie just loves his people, so he would be suited to a home where someone can be home with him more often than not. Whilst he would absolutely benefit from having a doggy friend too, the human interaction is incredibly important.

Charlie understands most commands, and is extremely eager to please. He sleeps in at night on his bed and is fully toilet trained, not fussy with his food or over needy, and although strong, walks very calmly on the lead - again eager to just be around people he can love.

Charlie is so ready to meet the people he deserves to be loved by, so if you wish to meet Charlie he is in care at Revesby NSW with carer Rod. Please contact him on 0418 239763 to organise to say hello to this sweet boy.

Charlie has been in foster care since 22 February 2018, for 5 months



Kelpie - male - 4 years and 1 month

Scooby is a healthy young boy who is turning 4 this year. He is great with all people, and loves playing with kids, but he does jump up a bit so could knock over small ones, but he has never even tried to bite or growl. He gets along well with other animals and has lived with a dog whilst growing up. Currently Scooby lives outside and loves running round the yard and jumping up to see over the fence, so he will need a good fence to keep him in but when he is out and on walks he is lovely, patient and calm. Scooby just can't get enough of water - he loves playing in the hose and the sprinkler - check out the pics!
Scooby is fully vaccinated and desexed, and living with his current owner until we can find him his forever home. To get to know a bit more about Scooby and get to meet him, please call Jo on 0401 900696.

Scooby has been in foster care since 03 June 2018, for 1 month



Pointer cross - female - 2 years

Missy's current carer describes her as a gentle and quiet dog, who hasn't barked or caused a fuss when other dogs walk past the yard, even if their other dogs bark at the yard. She has not shown to be aggressive in any way, with people or dogs. She responds well to training with treats and rewards of “good girl” and a pat and is now sitting when asked. Missy seems like she wants to please. She has played with my other 2 dogs, one small and one older, and when the older dog got over the playing she left him alone. At night she hops into her bed and stays there quietly until you get up. She waits to go to the toilet until she is outside. She walks well on the lead but does pull a bit when other dogs approach but nothing that made it hard for the carer to handle her. Missy deserves to go to a loving home where she will be treated well.
She is currently desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and although is currently located in Bulli, she will soon be located in Revesby. Please contact Rod on 0418 239763 to learn a little bit more about this gentle girl.

Missy has been in foster care since 01 July 2018, for 3 weeks
