Maggie

Maggie

Collie Rough - female

Maggie is a lovely well mannered easy going girl who must go to a home where she has access to inside the house, with another playful dog and good secure fencing. A property inspection will need to be completed before she is able to be placed so she can only go to a home where we have access to be able to carry out a property inspection ie Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong.

Mia

Mia

Cross Breed - female

Mia is the sweetest and most playful girl who loves her belly rubs. It appears that Mia looks was hit by a car prior to ending up in the pound and has a partially healed fracture in the lower leg and her hip is slightly separated, which means she will limp on occasions after a big run around. The vet believes that this will not stop her from living a normal dogs life. She is not any pain and runs around and plays madly just the same as any normal puppy although she will slide out if taking a turn too fast to the right probably caused by the leg being slightly shorter due to the break. She is great with other dogs and loves nothing better than tearing around the yard either chasing or being chased. When she is not in a running mood, she loves a game of tug with anybody who is willing. She is a tough little cookie who likes to play hard but who does not get upset if she is on her own and will often be found either snuggled into another dog or happily lying on her own bed. She is not sure how to behave aroundcats but is learning slowly from a very tough teacher. Currently in care in the Shellharbour area.

Mia has had a rough time since finding herself abandoned at the pound as a young pup. She came into care with a bad case of kennel cough from which she has now made a full recovery after a battle that lasted a few months. She was also displaying odd development of her back legs and was limping, this was perhaps the result of a poor diet as a young pup. Xrays and vet investigations took place and she is now showing improvement. On top of this she has, for the last month, had a urinary tract problem which required further xrays and is currently under special treatment to see if this is a one off problem or not.

Mia's vet fees so far have come to $1,211. If you can help us cover some of these additional vet costs please call Megan on 9627 2767 or email dchanimaladoptions@iprimus.com.au or click below.

Thanks to Lachlan, Betty, Alison, Nicole, Joseph, Alice, Rhema, Rowena and Laine for their donations so far towards Mia's vet costs

Mia was adopted on 08 October 2010 after 8 months in foster care

Fuzz

Fuzz

German Shepherd - female

Fuzz is a big dog with a big heart who has been left alone far too much in her 4 year life span and this makes her desperate for your attention, pats and cuddles which means she can be a bit enthusiastic when first greeting you. She was not trained sufficiently as a puppy but has been making some strides in the right direction since coming into care. She does know how to sit however stay and come are being worked on. She does know how to walk loose lead but needs to understand there can be more than one leader in her life. She gets very anxious when meeting other dogs while she is on lead, common sense is lost and she strains on lead. Fuzz is a healthy weight with a great long shaggy glamour coat. Introductions with other dogs would need to be very guided as her anxiety, size,and weight can intimidate other dogs. She needs ongoing training and socialisation with other dogs especially on lead and she will make a great family pet. She in currently in a foster home with 3 children the youngest being 7 and she is fine with them. Because little kids could easily be knocked over by accident by such a big dog, we would require her to go to a home with older children.

Fuzz was adopted on 18 September 2010 after 3 weeks in foster care

Tigger

Tigger

Staffy x - male

Tigger is a shy boy but also very calm!! We haven't heard him bark once, not even when other dogs are going for it although he is a talker, especially when you rub him behind his ears! He's great on the harness and doesn't even notice other people or kids on his walks. He is becoming quite strong so his walks are getting closer to power walks!! He's house trained and is still getting his head around the idea of fetch. He's not a fussy eater and loves lounging around in the sun. Tigger gets on well with other dogs, he really is just such a great dog :)

Tigger was adopted on 11 September 2010 after 3 months in foster care

I would prefer to go to a home with another dog or where someone was home for a good part of the day to keep me company.I walk well on a lead, I am house trained and I much prefer belly rubs to chasing a ball. I get along well with cats and i like children over 5years. Bobby is Pomeranian size.
