Pug X - male

Vinny, was taken into rescue by DCH @ 6 weeks old,

He didnt have a good start to life as when he was born his mother chewed his leg and ear, He has had one ear cut off and his leg had broken bones where he had a few stitches to close the wounds in hope his leg would heal itself.... at 3 weeks Vinny started using his injured leg and now at 9 weeks he is using it very well.

He has a limp and runs a bit to the side i call it the crab run but it only makes him cuter.

Vinny is a sweet puppy , who lovesss affection, he loves to be carried around in your arms, he is very much like a baby. he is always happy and and good around everyone, especially kids.

He is extremely playful and loves our other foster pets such as the Kitten who is his best friend and our pet Rabbit.

He is a little rough with them as he is bigger and a lot more solid, But they get a long well, he loves them very much.

We have been toilet training him , and he is half way there.

He is a very smart little boy, listens when you call to him, he will follow you and sits when you ask him to.

Vinny has one ear but makes him extra special and unique.

He will definitely be a dog that would need that extra care and attention, his ears would be a matter of importance and would have to be an indoor pet.

His leg may bring some discomfort in the near future, would need to keep an eye out on his leg and make sure he has it checked out at his Vet check ups.

This boy is super special, sweet, and you cant deny he is just adorable to look . He is looking for a forever home.

Vinny was adopted on 17 November 2014 after 3 weeks in foster care

Border Collie - male

Charlie is larger than life with the biggest heart to match and if you have children, little or big, then Charlie is quite the catch. With endless energy galore, Charlie will love you and the kids with all his heart and he won't be able to stop cuddling you all.

Like most Border Collie's Charlie is super smart so he does need a big yard to explore. Other dogs are not a problem, Charlie will share his food bowl for sure.

Lots of exercise is a must but you will not find it a chore, 2 big walks a day is what Charlie needs.

Cats aren't so keen on Charlie as he tends to stare them down like the Border Collie breed.

Charlie comes desexed, microchipped, heart-wormed checked, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated.

So if you want a house full of love then Charlie is your dog as he is like a gift from heaven above......

Charlie was adopted on 26 October 2014 after 4 days in foster care



Shih Tzu x - male

Pip is a lovely boy who is used to living with other dogs. He is very good with young children and has always been around them. He is used to being an outdoor dog and he only settles inside for short periods.

Pip is pretty independent but does love human company. Pip has a lovely nature, learns quickly and walks well on a lead. He obeys basic commands and only barks as a warning that something outside is amiss. Good watch dog in that he alerts you to cars and people arriving.

Sadly Pip's current owners are no longer able to look after him and he is looking for a new home.

Pip is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated. Pip is available for adoption within NSW only.
