Trixie

Trixie

Kelpie X - Chipped as Austral - female

Trixie is an adorable 2.5 year old Kelpie cross.

She has been in foster care for 2 months, after her owner passed away.

Moving from a farm in the country has been quite a change for Trixie as she is now surrounded by a lot of new unfamiliar noises and has taken time to adjust to city life.

Trixie is quiet dog, who will happily lie all day in the sun, getting pats on the head.

She is starting to come out of her shell, and walks fine on a lead around the backyard, but not so much out the front as cars can cause a fright.

She has been desexed, microchipped, and vaccinated. She is due for her next vaccination in June 2021.

During the course of vet treatments we had X-rays's completed and found that Trixie had a broken leg in the past which was untreated and healed on its own. The vets have decided no surgery is needed at this time but this may impact her down the track.

Located in Kellyville NSW.

Trixie was adopted on 18 July 2020 after 2 months in foster care

Roxy

Roxy

Australian Silky Terrier - female

Roxy was rescued under Duty of Care whilst the Pound tried to find her owners. As no one came forward, Roxy was transferred to DCH care. Roxy initially presented with a flea/skin infection which has come along way, and has exposed nerve roots in some teeth, 5 which will have to be removed. Roxy is a quiet girl and is okay with and without company, prefers to sleep on the end of a bed or curled up on a comfy circular bed.
Roxy is not a playful girl but does set a good pace when walking on a lead, preferring a collar to a harness. Roxy is non-reactive to other dogs and walks well.
Very occasionally, as with most small dogs, her trachea 'sticks', causing a strange choking sound, however it fixes itself after a few seconds.
Roxy has had a successful meet and greet and is likely to get adopted after her stitches are removed after surgery. If, however, the trial period is unsuccessful, the 'On Hold' stamp will be removed and Roxy will be looking for another furever home.

Hutch

Hutch

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

Starsky

Starsky

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.

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

Dory

Dory

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

Roxy

Roxy

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

Tilly

Tilly

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!

Fia

Fia

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

Bella

Bella

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.

Shadow

Shadow

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!
