Inspector Rex

Inspector Rex

German Shephard - male

If you think his picture is cute...wait to you meet him! Rex will be a loyal family dog. He has a happy and calm personality and follows you dutifully around. He is content to be at your feet though still thinks he is small enough to be a lap dog. He loves to go for trips in the car and is happy to meet everyone and everything. He has a calm and wise disposition and will be very easy to train. Would make an excellent agility dog and already has great focus and happily walks beside you on lead. He plays well with all sized dogs and has had a curious sniff of a dog friendly cat. He has also met my horse and though gave one small bark within 30sec was running up to each horse to say hello and ask to play. He has started to become house trained and is learning very quickly.

Inspector Rex was adopted on 13 March 2007 after 1 year in foster care

She is a great watch dog, loves to play ball, and has a gentle temperament. She will be 2 on January 4th. She is desexed, and microchipped. She is in great health. We hope to find her a new home as we currently have to chain her up because we have no fences as we are building.

Nina

Nina

Kelpie x Doberman - female

Dobermans have been described as a gentle, loyal, loving and highly intelligent breed and Nina certainly fits that description. She is a very easy going, placid dog who loves the company of people. She is very friendly and bonds quickly with the people in her household. In addition she is very intelligent learning new commands very quickly. Nina comes and sits on command. Nina loves playing with other dogs and has settled in well with the other four dogs in the household. Nina is currently an indoor dog as she is very people oriented but not at all pushy. Judging by her markings Nina may also have some cattle dog in her.

Holly

Holly

American Bulldog x - female

Holly is a very sweet girl who loves to be a lap dog if you let her. She has a very easy going personality and get on well with other dogs. She likes to play with you and chases a ball, though hasn't quite worked out that you should bring it back. Holly loves to share a pillow with you while lazing in the sun and having a cuddle. She is a non-destructive dog, hasn't chewed anything except her bones since she arrived. Holly is not recommended for kids under 5, she thinks little ones are about the right size to pounce upon, but bigger kids she is wonderful with. Holly travels well in the car and is learning to be a well behaved girl very quickly. She is currently sleeping outside and is happy enough to be there, but would love to be nice and close to her new family. She'll love you back threefold. She will be medium to large size when fully grown.

Holly was adopted on 27 February 2007 after 1 month in foster care

Buddy

Buddy

Rotti x Shephard - male

Buddy is a loving and gorgeous boy that gets along well with all dogs, even dominant males. He would need to be re-homed with another dog or with a family that is home much of the time as although he isn't sooky he does like to have company (either canine or human). He is great with kids and is very affectionate. He is still a pup at heart and loves nothing more than to play. He loves his pats and thinks he is a lap dog. He is great at meal times and displays no aggression towards dogs or humans. He would make an ideal family pet for older children as although he isn't boisterous he is a large dog.

Buddy was adopted on 27 February 2007 after 4 months in foster care

Matilda

Matilda

Kelpie x Mastiff - female

We were lucky enough to know Matilda's name when she arrived as she responds to instructions best when her name is said before the instruction. Matilda is amazingly well behaved. She heels so well when out on a walk that you don't realise she's there. She comes when called even if she is intent on watching the possum in the tree that teases her every night. Matilda gets on really well with our large dog. They can play and run together for ages. I'm not sure how she would get on with a small dog. She ignored one we met on a walk but barked at another (If I was a dog I would bark at that one myself). Matilda has been very good with the teenage kids in our family as well as the adults and welcomes every stranger into the place with a great deal of affection after she has barked loudly at them. She was good when my neice and nephew aged 4 and 6 visited but they wern't here for a long time to guage properly how she responded with young children but she did let the 4 year old hang around her neck without a problem. Matilda would be one of the happiest dogs I have ever met. She loves to be around people, but has never been a problem when we wern't home

there haven't been any plants uprooted, objects destroyed etc. Matilda loves to retrieve soft toys as well as balls. We have a cat that tends to tease the dogs and Matilda has shown a keen interest in being with the cat. She hasn't harmed the cat but I wouldn't leave them together on their own as she sits very intently watching the cat and avoiding any swipes when she gets too close. I suspect that she lived with a cat at her last home. Matilda chases any bird that lands on the ground outside but has shown no interest in our large pet bird at home. Matilda is very intelligent and learns new commands very quickly. At the moment she is being taught to roll over when asked to. Matilda has eaten anything that we have fed her so is not a problem with feeding. She is also easy to give medications to and lets you put them in her mouth without a problem. Although an active dog, Matilda is not hyperactive. She has been sleeping outside at night but would be more than happy to stay inside and is house-trained. Matilda really is a fantastic dog.
