Thandi

Thandi

Ridgeback x - female

Kenya stopped eating and drinking and after x-rays showed up nothing it was decided that he may have swallowed something that caused a blockage. He was opened up and they found that he developed Gastroenteritis which is a condition that causes irritation and inflammation of the stomach and intestines (the gastrointestinal tract). It caused extreme vomiting, diarrhea and lack of appetite which lead to dehydration and an electrolyte imbalance. Kenya was put on a drip and monitored for 7 days and by then had lost a lot of weight. There was a great fear that his kidney and other organs were going to fail as he completely stopped eating and drinking. He is such a fighter and had the will to live so on day 8 he turned the corner and started drinking on his own and ate a little. He is now well and truly on the mend and is putting on weight slowly..

If you are able to help us by sponsoring some of Keny's additional vet costs, which have so far come to around $1,811, please call Megan on 9627 2767 or email dchanimaladoptions@iprimus.com.au

Chloe

Chloe

female

Chloe's has a beautiful thick black coat and stocky strong legs, quite a few people have described her as a 'Big Black Bear', a friendly, cuddly variety. Like most Border Collies she is intelligent. She is house trained and can sit and so on, but before she came into care we don't feel she was being walked. For such a smart animal to be in a back yard all the time must of been pretty dull. Now her regular afternoon walks are the most fantastic thing (well, this and dinner of course). As soon as she sees you're getting ready for walkies she starts to bow and wiggle and crinkle her nose and woof 'come on, let's go, hurry up'. She just loves it. But I think because she was not walked regularly before she doesn't know how to act when she's on the lead and meets other dogs. She has gotten on very well with the doggies she's lived with in foster care, not even bothered about the cat roaming at the vets. She's gentle and loving with people. But on the lead she needs to be trained, she can pull and sends mixed messages.

Her carer now has her sit whenever we see another dog on our outings and she's rewarded with a treat. But we need someone who has the time to commit to this as her on going education. In every other way she's an absolutely beautiful dog. Chloe loves her ears massaged and her belly rubbed and she'll nudge your arm if you stop for just a bit more. I love giving her a bear hug and she'll give a groan and a lean. Chloe's a smart, loving girl who wants to please. Are you the right owner to give her lots of cuddles and have time to teach her the things she's missed out on up to now. Chloe is in care at Waverley

Chloe was adopted on 16 August 2012 after 5 months in foster care

How this cute boy ended up in the pound in the first place is beyond me but whats even more strange is that he didnt get reclaimed or adopted!

Akora

Aussie Bulldog - female

Akora was adopted on 05 August 2012 after 2 weeks in foster care

Riley

Riley

Collie Rough - male

Riley was advertised on Gumtree for $999.99 by his family. There were no takers and the family were on the way to the pound with only 4 days before they moved overseas and they still had not made any arrangements for Riley when they heard about DCH's Collie Rough carer. Riley was so dirty and matted but after a bath and 4 hours of grooming he is back on the road to looking like the stunning boy he should. This poor boy has been debarked and I have no idea why as he is not an excessive barker at all, in fact he hardly ever barks unless the other Collies are playing and chasing balls, which is what they do when having fun they bark, otherwise he is happy to curl up in a dog bed and have a nice nap when all is quiet. He travels well in the car, is now housetrained and is just such a beautiful soft natured boy. Riley needs a family that will make him very much a part of their family as he has been neglected far too long.

He is located at Rydal (just past Lithgow) and a property inspection is required before he can be rehomed.

Riley was adopted on 28 July 2012 after 2 months in foster care

Troy

Troy

Rotti x - male

Troy is a happy go lucky boy who loves everybody he meets. Troy walks on a lead well and is very loving. He is healthy, desexed and up to date with needles. Troy is house trained and loves to guard the house. Troy has never shown any aggression towards children but is not around them a lot. As he is a large dog he loves to be exercised. He is still quite young he can be a bit excitable and would need a little more training.

Brodie

Brodie

Collie Rough - male

Brodie is only a little fella but he loves big hugs and lots of cuddles. He has very good hearing and even the salt grinder has him running through the house to see what it is that is upsetting his peace and quiet. He is great with other dogs, was not house trained when he came from the pound but is all house trained now and finds a spot inside and does not move all night long. He runs around doing this little grunt thing and the other Collies all look at him ' like what are you doing' and he doesn't care, he says he is happy and just having some fun running around with his tail up in the air. He gobbles his food down as he was super thin when he can into care and we are still in the process of getting him to take gently from your hand as he is just so keen to get any food on offer. He is a super sweet and affectionate boy that deserves a home where he is involved with walks and family stuff.

He is located at Rydal (just past Lithgow) and a property inspection is required before he can be rehomed.

Brodie was adopted on 22 July 2012 after 1 month in foster care
