Carly

Carly

Dalmation cross Bull Arab - female - 4 months and 3 weeks

Carly is a 4 month old female puppy who has been surrendered within a litter of 6 from a rural property. She is very friendly, and is currently living with 3 adult dogs, her brother and kittens. She gets along very well with the other dogs, and sleeps in the same room as the kittens and doesn't have any interest in them. Whilst Carly is currently not desexed, this will be done soon and then she will be ready to go to her new home! In the meantime, get in touch with her foster carer, Rod on 0418 239763 to organise to say hello!

Carly has been in foster care since 17 September 2018, for 1 month

Roo

Roo

Cattle x Kelpie - male - 3 months and 4 weeks

Roo is a high energy dog who would do best going to someone with space for him to run around and with someone who is an experienced dog owner.

I’d imagine he would make a great working dog if someone were to teach him the ropes as he loves to run and is very instinctual.

Roo is an absolute goof-ball and provides endless giggles! He loves to play fetch tho is not very good an bringing things back and is always up for a game of tug (but watch your fingers!).

He plays well will other dogs but can often be too rough and boisterous for the little ones.

He is house trained and knows basic commands (sit, stay, leave it, lie down, shake, on your mat, come).
He walks well on lead but sometimes jumps up and grabs the lead to play tug and it can be difficult to get him to stop.

This ball of energy loves a cuddle and is extremely affectionate and loyal. He is also used to living inside with the family and quickly becomes your second shadow.

House Trained: Yes

Behaviour around other animals: OK with animals generally but can be to rough for smaller dogs.

Behaviour with Kids: Jumps on them but eventually settles

General Behavioural Issues: Gets over excited and can be nippy. Jumps on people to greet in particular children. Additional training should help.

Vaccinated: Yes

Desexed: Yes

Zeena

Zeena

Great Dane - female - 4 years and 1 month

Zeena has recently been rescued from a country pound and is in foster carer with 5 other dogs who she gets along with incredibly! She is a big girl but is very gentle with her carer and with the other dogs, and is also good on the lead.
Zeena is scared of thunderstorms, and can escape yards when she is left alone in a storm. As such, her new owners would have to make sure they prepare in the forecast of storms and make sure Zeena has somewhere safe to hide away for a little while.
She isn't yet desexed, but this will be happening in the next couple of weeks. Please call Rod if you would like to know a little more about Zeena, and say hello!

Zeena has been in foster care since 20 October 2018, for 4 weeks

Kyrie

Kyrie

Labrador cross - male - 2 years and 1 month

Kyrie has recently been rescued from a country pound and is living with another dog and children. He gets along so well with a young girl at the carers house, and also with his cat and dog. He generally loves people and attention and is not over active. Kyrie has shown the ability to get out of the yard when left for longer periods, so would suit somewhere that has secure fencing.
Kyrie is getting desexed on Friday, and after this is available for adoption. He is located in Glenmore Park, please contact Gemma for more details on Kyrie and to organise a meeting.

Kyrie has been in foster care since 20 October 2018, for 4 weeks

Bailey

Bailey

Kelpie - male - 2 years and 1 month

Bailey is in private rehoming. He is currently 2 years old and desexed. Bailey has been living in Sydney Suburbia and his current owners situation has changed, and she can no longer keep him due to health issues. He has not seen or worked stock so although breed for it he would be better suited as a mate than a worker. He has grown up with two other dogs so is dog friendly. Bailey goes for long runs on a daily basis, and then regains energy very quickly, so would be ideally going to a home with plenty of space for him to run around in between walks and being out with the family. If you think you could give Bailey a loving active home, please contact Gemma who will put you in touch with his current owner.

Dexter

Dexter

Schnoodle - male - 4 years and 10 months

Hi I'm Dexter and was surrendered to DCH by my owner.

I am a delightful happy-go-lucky almost 5 years old, house trained, pet and people friendly, don't bark, have a good persona, well kept and fed dog. I enjoy fruit and vegetables rice and chicken. I walk well on a lead, I ignore other dogs and birds. I have had no exposure to cats. I was previously housed on an apartment balcony and was walked twice daily for 1/2 hour.

I love chasing ball, sticks and retrieve both and love a game of tug-of-war I'm a typical puppy but not in a destructive manner. I am very people orientated and am happy to sit or lie quietly inside.

On the serious side, I have a skin condition and I am on medication for itch. A second vet suggested medicated shampoo bath twice a week at the moment. The rash has subsided quite significantly and is now the size of a 10 cent piece.

I must be adopted by someone responsible who is dedicated to keeping my skin condition under control. I need a home with a cool environment as summer really tests my allergy. I am okay in Winter. I need good quality food and snacks.

I'll make it worth your while if you'd like to come and meet me. Hope to see you soon! Love Dexter xx

Dexter has been in foster care since 04 November 2018, for 2 weeks

Colby

Colby

Great Dane cross - male - 4 months and 1 weeks

Colby is a very shy but also very sweet boy who just likes to be around people constantly, following his carer everywhere and laying in whatever room she is in. At the moment he is very quiet and as such is being walked much as he is still scared of his new surroundings, but would need someone who has the time to spend with him and make him feel comfortable, and eventually get him out and walking and around other dogs. He has lived with dogs previously, and has used them as comfort, so would not be against going to a home with another dog. He is now by himself with his carer, to try and help build his bonds with people. He's is a beautiful and lovely natured dog.
Please contact Gemma for more information and to meet Colby.

Colby has been in foster care since 05 November 2018, for 1 weeks

Ellie

Ellie

Great Dane X Bull Arab - female - 4 months and 1 weeks

Ellie came into care with her brother as a very quiet and shy girl with her brother, but soon showed she was a little more confident than him. She has a gentle nature, and is a very positive and cuddly girl. She's still quite afraid of loud noises and crowds but we're working on it. She's cat and dog friendly and loves water! Keeps herself busy with her toys during the day and learns well. She has stunning bicolored eyes with blue and brown shades in both! She is truly a lovely girl who will do so well with owners who are willing to take it slow during introductions, and then fully embrace life from there. Please contact Jo on 0401 900696 for more information of Ellie, and to meet this lovely young girl.

Ellie has been in foster care since 05 November 2018, for 1 weeks
