Staffy X Great Dane X Border C - male - 5 months

Hello everyone, I am a 3 month old cross puppy who is a mix of staffy, border collie and maybe even great dane according to the vet! I was rescued from a country pound and am super friendly, great with other dogs and cats and I love kittens. I would like to know how to use the boudoir properly so I'm slowly being taught that and improving every day! I haven't been desexed yet and won't be able to for another month or so, however if you'd like to meet me in the meantime, you can contact the carer I'm living with, Jo, on 0401 900696 or Rod on 0418 239763. Bye for now, love Cash..

Cash has been in foster care since 25 July 2018, for 2 months

Rooster

Rooster

Cattle x - male - 11 months and 4 weeks

Hi, I'm Rooster. I'm a loveable and affectionate Cattle x and arrived from a Country pound on 18th August, 2018. I was a very shy and timid boy when I arrived there and after a month, was wagging my tail and greeting the staff at the shelter. I went a bit backward when I arrived at Sutherland, wanting to sleep amongst the hedges and hardly coming out, however 6 days on I have come out of my shell again and am romping around the back yard and now spend most of my time on the alfresco, either on the banana lounge or in one of my 2 beds.

I am sharing my carer with two other dogs, a 12 year old cattle x corgi and a 15 year old fox terrier x chihuahua who walk under me if I stand still long enough. Being older, they don't play as much as I would like, however I am an independent guy and enjoy company, or my own.

My foster carer bought me a teddy bear which is my favourite toy. I also love her hand-towel and a Kong which is full of treats. I enjoy a varied diet and have the most beautiful teeth.

Due to my timidness, I haven't been heartworm tested, vaccinated or desexed yet. My foster carer must earn my trust in order to take me to the vet, which is slowly happening. As I said, I've come a long way so far. So if you would like to meet me, I'd be thrilled to meet you and hopefully find my furever home.

Rooster will thrive in a special understanding household who will give him the initial space he needs to open up.

Sadie

Sadie

Kelpie cross - female - 2 years and 1 month

My name is Sadie and I am all about humans, humans, humans. I cannot get enough of the love, and will live everyday making you guys satisfied with hugs. I was rescued from a regional pound on August 18th, and have since shown this loving side of myself. I would really suit a home where I am an only dog, as I can get a bit jealous if other dogs get the love and in cases have shown to be a bit reactive.

However, at my current home I love cuddles with cats (see photo) and am sharing sleeping quarters with 2 older dogs. I think slow introductions would be perfect and then hopefully we can share the love around! As I said though, I am a people pleaser and am very obedient and toilet trained. I'm good on the lead but again can be strong if other dogs are present.

It looks like my carers think I spent a lot of time in kennels as a breeder, as I have had a few litters and am a bit shy. I think that is why I can't get enough of the human attention now. I am desexed, vaccinated and heartworm tested, and am free to go to my new home.

Please contact Rod, my current carer, on 0418 239763 to organise to say hello to me. I can't wait. Love, Sadie.

Sadie has been in foster care since 26 August 2018, for 1 month

Candy

Candy

Stumpy cattle cross - female - 9 months and 4 weeks

Hi there, my name is Candy and I am an 8 month old stumpy tail cattle dog cross who was rescued from a county pound a couple of weeks ago. I am currently living with another kelpie, a cat and a young child and get along with all of them really well, but sometimes I do try to get all the attention from the humans above the others! I'm afraid I am a bit of a digger and a chewer, so I tend to get into things I shouldn't - I am very active and therefore need someone who is willing to walk me lots to wear me out! Despite this I have lots of love to give, and am always down for a cuddle with whoever is willing to offer. I'm not desexed yet so I'm afraid I can't go until then, but am very excited to meet you beforehand anyway!
I'm currently in care in Glenmore Park, please contact Gemma on 0435 939858 if you'd like to come say hi!

Candy has been in foster care since 27 August 2018, for 4 weeks
