Milk

Milk

Jack Russell X Pug X Maltese X - female

Milk was surrendered into DCH care to find her a new forever home.
Milk is a lovely little dog with lots and lots of energy to burn. She has a very high energy level and gets very excited very quickly.

She is looking to be an indoors dog who has access to an outside secure yard to be able to run around in. She needs a home where someone is home during the day and around her more often than not.

She is a small dog currently but will grow larger based on her parents size.

She has grown up in foster care with her sister Cadbury who has been rehomed. Milk managed to get her eye injured while playing with Cadbury and has needed a little time to heal and recover. She is now ready to find her new home as she has been missing her sister and needs a home where she will get lots of love and attention and play.

Milk loves any attention and has a strong loud bark and currently still barks for attention when she is bored or lonely.

She has not had as much dog socialisation as we normally would have due to Covid-19 and will need to be enrolled in a puppy school once they open back up.

She walks on a lead but does tend to want to run ahead and can get easily spooked by strange noises.

She had learnt to sit for treats and still tends to jump up and grab them from you as she is not very patient.

She can be a little bitey around the ankles and toes when excited so we suggest she is rehomed to a home without kids under the age of 8.

She enjoys a good tug of war with a little teddy bear or squeaky toy and she loves her treats.

She is used to toileting on a training grass mat when inside but will need further work once in her new home to adjust to her new surrounds.

She has received all 3 vaccinations, is desexed, microchipped, and flea treated.

Her Mumma is a Maltese X Jack Russell Terrier
Her Dad is a Maltese X Shih Tzu X Pug X Jack Russell

Her Sister's photo is included in the profile and Milk is very different from the other puppies from the litter and has less Maltese and Shih Tzu in her.

9/5/2020 - This listing has been enabled today. We are expecting quite a bit of interest so please include as much information about yourself, your family, your home environment and anything else you think we need to know in your response to help us find the perfect home.

10/5/2020 - Milk has received 65+ enquiries about adoption in 24 hours. Placing on hold to allow us to review all 65 + enquiries.

Milk was adopted on 14 May 2020 after 3 months in foster care

Mia

Mia

Great Dane X - female

Hiya, I'm Mia, a gorgeous 3yo Great Dane cross.
I am a 50kg and 86cm tall bundle of love and joy. I adore people and live for my daily playtime (tug of war, garden chase, hidden treats). Although I'm a big girl, I am gentle and well mannered. My excitement does get the best of me sometimes and I can be a bit loud but I am obedient. I haven't been socialised much with others dogs so we are working on that. I did amazingly well at my first dog park party!
I tend to be a bit of a scaredy cat but I learn fast and thrive when given support and encouragement to gain confidence. Talking about cats, I'm living with 2 of them and not bothering them. I have quite some energy for a Dane, not really the couch potato type. I would need a medium to large garden (10m×10m minimum), daily walks with confident owners who can hold me back if I pull (I'm used to wearing a halter to help), playtime time with toys and other dogs and belly ruuubs!
I am trained to sit, stop, give paw, lie down and come back when called. I sleep indoors (house trained) and am definitely not the destructive type: zero items lost to compulsive chewing to report to date - I am so good!
I'm located in Epping with my foster carer Jo, so please call her on ‭0401 900 696‬ to organise to meet me!

Mia was adopted on 11 May 2020 after 1 month in foster care

Blackie

Blackie

Mini Fox Terrier - male

Blackie (4.9kgs) was recently rescued with his foster-sibling Snowy from a home environment that was no longer any good for them. He is currently living at Cronulla with his foster dad. Blackie appears to be content knowing someone is home, but not in sight. Recently his foster dad tested him out by going on a few shopping trips to find Blackie just relaxing on his bed and wagging his tail to greet his foster dad.

It is understood that Blackie never owned a collar therefore, never walked. His foster dad has put him into training, now he happily walks twice a day and outpaces his foster dad. He is friendly toward other dogs and cats.

Blackie's previous foster household had numerous dogs. Blackie tends to sniff and follow the other dogs around, but it is hoped this behaviour will stop once he is desexed.

Blackie was vaccinated on 7th April, and will be desexed on 21st April, 2020 After which he will be ready for adoption.

Blackie was adopted on 04 May 2020 after 1 month in foster care

Bear

Bear

Staffy X - male

Bear is an approximately 1 year old staffy cross who is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.

He is currently living with a young family with young children, and whilst he hasn't done anything wrong, the children are a bit intimidated by Bear's size and so it makes it hard to manage the environment. As a result, Bear is not getting the attention he desires, so would benefit from going to a home with older children, and where he has plenty of time and opportunity to interact with the family on a daily basis.

Bear is a large boy, but doesn't demonstrate his strength or size when interacting with people. He hasn't had much of a chance to interact with other dogs, so would probably be best suited to a home without other dogs, or would need to be given time and opportunity to introduce them in a very controlled environment.

Please contact Rod, who will give you more information and refer you to Bear's current owners.

Note: Bear currently has a council nuisance order issued against him until the end of year for a prior incident.

Bear was adopted on 03 May 2020 after 4 weeks in foster care

Snowy

Snowy

Mini Fox Terrier - male

Little Snowy (7.4kgs) was recently rescued with his foster-sibling Blackie from a home environment that was no longer any good for them. Snowy is living in Sutherland with his new foster family, which consists of two other dogs, however is more focussed on his humans.
Snowy is very quiet and submissive and craves love. He is very needy and will cry if left alone if locked in another room. His potential new furever family needs to take this into consideration as Snowy would best be suited to a home where someone or another pet is home all the time.
It is believed that as Snowy did not own a collar, that he had never been walked. This rings true, however he has ventured outside the front gate and around the block with and without another resident dog every day since 15/04/20. Snowy was vaccinated on 7th April, and will desexed on 21st April. After which he will be ready for adoption!
Should you be interested in meeting Snowy, please e-mail his carer to arrange a meet and greet.

Snowy was adopted on 03 May 2020 after 1 month in foster care

Jasper

Jasper

Chihuahua - male

**Please see update at the bottom of the profile**

Jasper is a young-at-heart chihuahua, on the small side (yes, of chihuahua). He is five years old and has a healthy respect for house rules.

He was heartbroken when his family moved away and had to leave him behind, but it turns out he’s resilient when it comes to finding a new lap to curl up on.

Jasper is a home body. He finds the world a bit overwhelming, and tends to freeze in his tracks when out on walks if he sees a car, or a dog, or a person. But, given he’s only 2.5kg, it’s easy enough to pick him up if you need to.

He has smooth fur and won’t shed if you give him a wash once a week and a brush each day. He doesn’t love the bath, but will put up with it rather stoically.

Jasper is definitely motivated by cuddles over food. But he will accept both. He’s not an overeater and will play with dry food, carefully hiding it in hallways and under the table, where you are most likely to walk or step.

He barks on being surprised, growls now and then at loud noises, appreciate Boy and Bear, stands on his hind legs to get a good view of what’s on the dining table and cries when left on his own (occasionally reaching howls). He is very much a people person, and doesn’t seem to consider himself a dog. He had three cat siblings for most of his life, so has a few cat habits – pacing on the back on the couch, grooming his paws and washing his face. And sleeping in a warm spot whenever possible. Most preferably a lap.

He has one slightly outgrown lower tooth which gives him of a Billy Idol sneer that you’ll come to appreciate more then any aesthetic symmetry.

Basically, Jasper is a love muffin and you will find yourself gently caressing his hairless little chest protectively and gazing adoringly into his chupa chup eyeballs. Prepare to fall in love.

Located in Bondi, NSW

Update 19/4. Jasper has had 60+ enquiries in 24 hours. Placing the listing on hold to work through trying to find an appropriate match from the enquiries which have been received already.

Jasper was adopted on 29 April 2020 after 1 month in foster care
