Staffy X - male

Hutch is a lovely young Staffy, between 5-10 months old, who has recently been rescued from a pound after suffering quite a bit in his young life. He is now loving life in his new foster home, surrounded by other dogs who he gets along with very well. He is a very friendly boy, and will be able to go to a home with other dogs after a meet and greet.
Hutch is currently undergoing some medical treatment, and will be vaccinated and microchipped soon, after which he can be collected and adopted into his new family. Please contact Rod for more information, and to meet this lovely young boy.

Hutch was adopted on 04 July 2020 after 1 month in foster care



Staffy X - male

Starksy has just been collected from the pound with his little brother Hutch. Starksy is between 5-10 months old, and is a lovely young boy who gets along with all the other dogs in his foster family, and loves people too.
He would be suited to a home with other animals, or where he gets plenty of interaction with his new family.
Starsky is currently receiving some medical treatment, and will be vaccinated and microchipped soon, after which he can be adopted and be ready to live out his life with his new family. Please contact Rod for some more information.

Staffy - female

Lovely Dory! Dory came into care recently with her sister, Shadow.
They are your text-book puppy, with plenty of energy and love to go round, and the best cuddles! They are very playful, but clearly love to snuggle up once they are all worn out!
Dory will need to stay in care until she is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped, but in the meantime call her carer to have a chat and meet lovely Dory!

Dory was adopted on 17 June 2020 after 1 month in foster care



Rottweiller - female

Roxy came as a stray from Campbelltown pound. She is a 30kgs very energetic dog who is full of love. You could say she has a double personality. She can be this lovely nice dog, quiet and obedient... but that only lasts for a moment. Roxy gets excited about... well pretty much everything and other dogs in particular. In other words, her excitement gets the best of her!
She is smart and responds well to training.
She's only been to the dog park a few times and is still shy and unsure so more socializing with other dogs would be very beneficial.

She is meant to be 1 to 1.5 years old but still acts like a puppy most of the time. She will nip at your hands to play, bite her own tail as a way to throw a tantrum and is very vocal. Training can make her frustrated and, as a stubborn pup, she will show you how much she disagrees! She is pretty needy and requires attention.

She is very playful with high levels of energy and never ending stamina so she needs a large yard and a very active family. She is always down for playtime!
She wouldn't be suited for a family with young kids as she is pretty clumsy. Teens as a minimum age.

She loves to play fetch and be chased around the garden. She is toilet trained and sleeps indoors all through the night. She is currently living with cats but they are separated. She is curious about them but hasn't shown any aggression.

Her ideal family would not be full time workers and be very active people. They should also be seasoned dog owners (or people who know the breed) and have extensive experience in dog training and confident with dominant dogs.
With the right professional dog training/puppy school and plenty of patience, she will settle down.
With the right owners and training, she will grow into a beautiful and loyal dog always ready for the next adventure.

Roxy was adopted on 12 June 2020 after 2 weeks in foster care



Staffy X - female

Hi my name is Tilly! I'm about 3 years old and am mum to some of the puppies on the website at the moment - like Dory and Shadow! In total I had 9 puppies, and now they are all big enough I've been desexed and am ready for my retirement home!!!
I absolutely love people, I'm very cuddly and really lap up all your attention. I'm also very obedient, and whilst I need further training, I should learn really quickly with the right teaching!
I won't be suited to a home where there are other cats, as I'm afraid I'm not very friendly with them. I can go to a home with other dogs, but probably not any that are smaller than I am.
I'm up to date on vaccinations and microchipping, and given I'm desexed, I'm ready to go!! Please call my carer Rod on 0418239763 to ask more about me and organise a meeting, please don't email as Rod doesn't have a computer right now!
See you soon!

Tilly was adopted on 04 June 2020 after 1 month in foster care



Kelpie X Border Collie - female

Hello! My name is Fia. I'm approximately 6.5 years young and am a Border Collie X Kelpie.

The first thing you should know about me is that I am a people-loving dog - I truly cannot get enough of them. Hugs, kisses, playing, walking, I am there. In my foster home I've found my new favourite place is truly where ever my foster carers are, and often recently that has been in the middle of them, taking up most of the lounge! And whilst I'm there, I make sure to swap which end my head is so I've always got my head and paws right up close to them, in the perfect spot for pats. In my previous home I also lived with 2 children, and I absolutely loved them. I'm super gentle and watchful, so would be more than happy going to a home with children of any age.

Living up to my breed, I'm a super smart and attentive girl. In my previous home I was really well trained, and so I know all the usual commands and always come when I'm called. This really helps my 'on the lead' skills. I am an active walker, and whilst I don't necessarily pull there will always be tension on the lead. I'm a bit stronger at the start too, but then once I'm in my rhythm then the slack on the lead gets better again. When walking past other people I don't show any interest, so thats good as I'm not walking in all directions at all.

The only thing I pay a bit of attention to on my walks, and when I'm out, is other dogs. I've not shown any aggression towards other dogs since being in my foster home, but I do get fixated and tense when they are around. I have been introduced already to other quiet dogs and again, haven't done anything wrong, however I'm not sure if one may push me a bit far and then I might not be okay anymore! In my previous home my owners said that I was dominant with other dogs, but they were able to let me off and once my excitement had settled down I was absolutely fine playing with others. As a result, it may be better that I go to a home without other dogs around - then I get all the attention too! If you do have another dog they would probably need to be quite quiet, and we would need quite a few meetings before we could say we would be okay living together.

Finally, given my breed again, I would be best going to a home that has a good backyard and really good, high fencing. My old owners tried to rehome me previously and I was able to escape, but I haven't shown any interest in getting out of my foster carer's yard.

My paperwork with the council is still be processed, and I've got to be vaccinated at the vets, which will hopefully mean I'm ready for my new home in about 3-4 weeks. Please call Gemma, my carer, on 0435939858 to chat and maybe come and meet me!

Kisses and hugs, Fia

Kelpie - female

This lovely mature lady is Bella, but don't let her age fool you! She is an active and fit who loves her walks, but certainly also loves those cuddles.
She is very very friendly and gentle with all people and children, having grown up with children in her own home.
She has perfect manners both on and off the lead, and is well trained and obedient.
Bella had to leave her old home due to fights between her and the older dog, and an ongoing cat fixation. As a result, it would be best that Bella does not go to a home with either dogs or cats, and she gets all the attention to herself!
Please contact Gemma for more information.



Staffy - female

**25/4 On Hold due to the large number of enquiries, We will need some time to for our carer to review the current interest that has been received via email and over the phone**

The Beautiful Shadow is approximately 6 weeks old, and has just come into care with her sister, Dory.
They are your text-book puppy, with plenty of energy and love to go round, and the best cuddles! They are very playful, but clearly love to snuggle up once they are all worn out!
Shadow will need to stay in care until she is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped, but in the meantime call her carer Rod to have a chat and meet lovely Shadow!

Shadow was adopted on 25 May 2020 after 1 month in foster care

Jack Russell X Pug X Maltese X - female

Milk was surrendered into DCH care to find her a new forever home.
Milk is a lovely little dog with lots and lots of energy to burn. She has a very high energy level and gets very excited very quickly.

She is looking to be an indoors dog who has access to an outside secure yard to be able to run around in. She needs a home where someone is home during the day and around her more often than not.

She is a small dog currently but will grow larger based on her parents size.

She has grown up in foster care with her sister Cadbury who has been rehomed. Milk managed to get her eye injured while playing with Cadbury and has needed a little time to heal and recover. She is now ready to find her new home as she has been missing her sister and needs a home where she will get lots of love and attention and play.

Milk loves any attention and has a strong loud bark and currently still barks for attention when she is bored or lonely.

She has not had as much dog socialisation as we normally would have due to Covid-19 and will need to be enrolled in a puppy school once they open back up.

She walks on a lead but does tend to want to run ahead and can get easily spooked by strange noises.

She had learnt to sit for treats and still tends to jump up and grab them from you as she is not very patient.

She can be a little bitey around the ankles and toes when excited so we suggest she is rehomed to a home without kids under the age of 8.

She enjoys a good tug of war with a little teddy bear or squeaky toy and she loves her treats.

She is used to toileting on a training grass mat when inside but will need further work once in her new home to adjust to her new surrounds.

She has received all 3 vaccinations, is desexed, microchipped, and flea treated.

Her Mumma is a Maltese X Jack Russell Terrier
Her Dad is a Maltese X Shih Tzu X Pug X Jack Russell

Her Sister's photo is included in the profile and Milk is very different from the other puppies from the litter and has less Maltese and Shih Tzu in her.
