Sam

Sam

Collie Rough - male

Sam is the most beautiful 4 year old shaded sable male Collie Rough. He is great with children, small animals including chickens, cats and other dogs. He has been a joy to care for as he is very gentle and extremely affectionate, he loves to be brushed, taken for walks and loves drives in the car, he just so wants to be part of the family. Sam has been really easy to train and can sit, stay, come and drop. Sam is happy just to lay at your feet, loves pats and cuddles and needs to be wherever you are, I often get a paw on my lap when at my desk to get a pat or a wet nose in my face to get me up out of bed for a walk. He has big brown eyes that melt your heart and you can't but fall in love with him, he will need to go to a home where he can be inside when the family are home as he loves human attention. Sam is so well behaved inside, I put a soft blanket on the floor and he snuggles up on it and falls asleep and stays there as long as you let him. He is such a handsome dog, I am forever getting stopped to pat him on walks and he will bring so much love to whoever adopts him.

Sam is currently in foster care in the Newcastle area and he will only be allowed to go to a family in either the Newcastle or Sydney area and a property inspection will need to be done before an adoption can take place.

Sam was adopted on 31 July 2010 after 2 months in foster care

Igor

Igor

Maltese x - male

Remember Falkor, the luckdragon from Neverending Story?...well Igor, has been told once or twice he looks very much like him.He's a typical boy dog who loves to play and roll in the dirt. He has heaps of energy and will play and run for hours non-stop with dogs or people. He knows how to play fetch and loves to carry his toys around the house.If allowed to sleep on your bed, you will wake in the middle of the night to find him near your feet, under the covers. But he's just as happy to sleep in his own bed on the floor. He doesn't bark or cry, and loves to sit out the front and let passers-by pat him. He loves cuddles, but is just as happy to sit near you when night comes.If your looking for a very energetic, little, well balanced dog with thecutest underbite and gorgeous oversized ears, Igor is the one for you.

Bentley

Bentley

Pug x Shitzu - male

Little Bentley is definitely an unusual looking dog. Just picture a scruffy pug and that is him. He absolutely loves other dogs and would need to have another little companion, he even likes cuddling up to them at night. Bentley is a very easy boy to walk and is also great off lead. He is a bit scared of bigger dogs but I am sure he will get used to them as he is currently living with a large airedale terrrier. He does enjoy being inside and is housetrained. I don't think he would do well being left all day outside alone. Everyone who has met him thinks he is adorable and a perfect little size also. He would be fine with children and is quite submissive and absolutely loves a cuddle. Bentley is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Bentley was adopted on 15 July 2010 after 1 month in foster care
