Pomeranian - male

Casper is the most gorgeous little fluffball. He came into care after being surrendered by his owner.

We are still getting to know him but Casper is a delightful little chap. He can sit most of the time on request. He really loves to play especially with the resident dog and he loves a ball and toys. He gets on well with the resident dog and cats. He is Child friendly.

As he is a pup he will still require training. He is not yet fully house trained but is learning. He sleeps all night without a peep.

Casper will come vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated. His desexing cost is covered in his adoption price.

If you would love to meet this little one please contact his foster carer. He is located in Glenmore Park.

Casper was adopted on 07 October 2017 after 1 weeks in foster care



Labrador Retriever - male

Harley is an older boy in years only and is only about 5 years old at heart.

He is in good health and is a very well behaved boy, he follows commands well, walks fairly well on lead and knows to sit before crossing roads and other commands. Harley is good with all ages, people and dogs. He is active without being overly energetic.

Harley would love a home with kids to play with and he enjoys being with other playful dogs. So a busy household full of love and fun would be just right for this lovely boy.

Harley was adopted on 06 September 2017 after 4 weeks in foster care



Mastiff x - female

Roxy has only been in care a few days but we can already tell she is looking to live the high life, being spoiled with love and treats.

She is still young and has so much to learn in life, so she will need a family who will help lead the way.
I think she will excel in training and learning new things as she is super confident and eager to please.

She is so sweet and loves to be in and amongst the family.
She is good with children and anyone willing to play, she really loves her snuggle time.

She would be best suited in a home with other animals.

Roxy has been treated for fleas/worms and is microchipped, desexed and vaccinated, she is located in Kingswood

Roxy was adopted on 02 September 2017 after 1 week in foster care



greyhound/kelpie cross - male

Ramsay is a very sweet, affectionate desexed boy who came with very little formal training but his willingness to please makes him a very quick learner. We are currently leash and obedience training him and he's doing very well. He responds very quickly with food/treat rewards, pats and praises. He is a timid boy firm 'no' is enough to chastise him. More than that is unnecessarily cruel (very greyhound-like in his sensitivity).
He seems to get along with every dog he has met although he came to Liverpool pound with bite marks to his leg and needing stitches to his face so it was apparent he had been in some sort of a scuffle. I've purposely been careful to put him with easy going/non 'agro' dogs to boost his confidence until those memories have faded as he is a timid dog.
He loves to be inside and next to his favourite humans as much as possible and would make a very good companion dog. He's fully house trained. He also enjoys some time outside in the sunshine but sleeps in the house.

Update: Ramsay has become quite a muscular happy boy. He loves going to the dog park and will happily leave the house without a lead and jump into the car in order to have his seat belt done up. He loves to be with his humans and sleeps in the house still as well. He spends time outside if no one is home.

ramsay was adopted on 29 August 2017 after 5 months in foster care



Jack Russel - male

What a delightful lively bundle of joy this little fella is, (approx 60cm length, 25cm height) and in top condition. Super switched on and ready for anything. Love’s to play fetch however can be protective at times with his possessions, bed, toys and food, (he may growl and nip) care must be taken when handling such items and care/supervision in the presence of young children. Our foster carer found that this protective nature of Henri's changed after a few days of him settling in to his new environment and trusting our carer. We are looking to re home Henri with person/s who are patient and experienced in handling dogs, prepared to give Henri time to settle in to his new environment and be the happy bubbly boy he is. Fully house trained, sleeps in at night and is walked daily. Henri loves his leash free runs in secure environments. He travels great in the car and gets on with most other dogs. Socialising Henri is an important part of him developing more confidence around bigger dogs. After a little shaky start Henri now enjoys the company of Buddy an 18mth old easygoing Shepard x Husky which is our carers dog, they have become good mates. Henri is a dog that wants to be your best mate whether you fly solo or are in a family situation. Along with his big personality Henri is a ball of loving energetic fun. Easy to train and already has a few tricks up his sleeve. I can’t imagine anyone who has the time to allow Henri to settle not loving this boy. Sadly his former family had to let him go due to personal circumstances. We have ensured the family that Henri’s new owners will give him all the love and care that is needed for him to have a great fun filled life. Henri does have a switch off button and relaxes nicely .
Henri is in care in Revesby NSW. Please contact Rod 0418239763. DCH Foster Carer.

Henri was adopted on 27 August 2017 after 1 weeks in foster care



Jack Russell Terrier - male

PK is a loving 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier looking for a new home. He is very sweet, affectionate and a classic lap-dog who will happily take as much love and attention as you can give, especially if it’s in the form of a belly rub!

He loves a good walk, however he’s not your typical high energy Jack Russell and is equally happy to be by your side or snuggled in his bed, as you watch TV. He doesn’t mind what you do, as long as you’re happy to have him tag around and spend quality time with you. He is a little shy until he gets to know you but really benefits from plenty of attention and reassurance.

Unfortunately we’ve had to make the heartbreaking decision to rehome him. We work full time and are unable to give him the companionship he deserves.

PK was owned by my parents. My father passed away a couple of years ago and my mother has recently moved into an aged care facility. As a favour to my mother, we adopted him, but as he is used to someone being at home, he suffers from separation anxiety. This normally manifests in him barking and pacing when we leave him at home.

The ideal owner would be someone who is retired or who works from home.

He is a friendly dog, but may find small children intimidating so would suit a family with older children, empty nesters or retirees looking for a loving and loyal companion. PK is an indoor dog. He spends most of his time inside and has been allowed to sleep on the furniture (sofa and bed). Since we’ve had him, we have trained him not to jump up on the furniture, though sometimes when he gets excited, he forgets his manners. He has lived with another dog all his life, however due to his submissive nature, prefers a quieter doggy companion. He is not a dog who will play with other dogs.

Ideally, he’d be happy to be the only dog so he can have your undivided attention in return for his loyalty.

PK is house trained, desexed and his vaccinations are valid until June next year. He’s healthy, though does suffer from ‘shaky dog syndrome’ that many small dogs have, but this hasn’t hampered him in any way.

If you think you have the perfect home for PK, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Cathy on 0431 965 783.

Vaccination next due: 28/6/18

Medical Issues or Treatments:He has shaky dog syndrome, so he shakes a lot but isn't affected by it other than being underweight. Also has two sores on his leg, which the vet has said he'll probably always have. Otherwise he's healthy.

Behaviour issues:He has severe separation anxiety. He craves human company and barks and paces if he is left alone. Dog company doesn't reduce his anxiety. He's very submissive and likes to cling to you, but behind your feet. We've tried everything to calm him down and sought advice from a trainer but the only options are to have someone with at home full time or to medicate him.

Is PK OK with Kids? He's not been around kids, although is happy to be patted by them. But given his anxiety issues he needs an older family as loud noises scares him.

Is PK OK around other animals? He's good with dogs, he's always has a dog companion. However he would suit a quieter dog as he doesn't like to play. He's not been around other animals though.

House Trained: Yes

Bull Mastiff x - male

Diesel is one of those sad cliches of a family who got a puppy just before Christmas, and 8 months later, as he grew into a big dog (Rhodesian Ridgeback x Bull Arab maybe?) they surrendered him. He was rescued from Hawkesbury Animal Shelter by a foster family who are working on his manners and toilet training. He is now going to the toilet on command, and no accidents inside the house, not even during the night anymore. He is a very good boy. He has learned many new commands such as sit, wait, toilet, timeout and stop.

He was a yard dog, left to his own devices to live under the house, but now loves being inside and has two children (age 8 and 10) and another dog (age 6) to play with. He is a large dog, but has a very gentle manner. He is quite boisterous, and if rehomed with another dog, you may need to consider separating them for a while as he wants to play continuously. Our other dog is 6, and so we keep them apart when we are not home to give her a rest. He is happy in the backyard, while she stays indoors until we get home.
Diesel is gorgeous and will be a perfect pet for a loving family. He is a gentle giant, no aggression at all and he doesn't really bark except in play to get attention. There was an initial issue with food sharing, but he has learned that there is enough for everyone, and he and our other dog now eat from the same bowl without issues.

With his humans, he has a soft mouth at all times, he has massive paws and he loves to nuzzle. He will try to climb into your lap in the evening, he is a giant baby. He enjoys walks and is pretty good on the lead but very strong - still some training required here. We have had him off-lead on bush walks and he stays pretty close-by, and returns when called.

He's a typical puppy, and interested in everything, but understands "no" and a loud clap stops him misbehaving. He wants to please, and loves being rewarded with a belly rub for good behaviour. He has a selection of dog toys to chew and he loves to play with them. He often destroys his toys but we have had no issue with any other destruction of our things. He understands what is "his" and what is off limits.

He is smart but like any young dog he needs stimulation - walks, toys or company either human or dog. He is also very comical when he sees his reflection, and watching him drink from the hose provides a lot of laughter.

Diesel deserves a loving home, with or without children and will be happy with another dog to play with, or as an only dog. He is young, fun and adorable.

He was born in October 2016, currently 9 months old, recently desexed and up to date on all vaccinations, worming and flea treatments and he is available for adoption now.

Diesel was adopted on 06 August 2017 after 1 month in foster care
