Maltese X Shih Tzu X Pug X Jac - female

Cadbury was surrendered into DCH care to find her a new forever home.
Cadbury is a lovely little dog with a big personality.

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

She is a small dog currently around 3.5 kg but will grow larger based on her parents.

She has grown up in foster care with her sister Milk.

Cadbury loves attention but tends to be a little less outgoing then Milk. She has a strong bark and will bark when she hears other dogs barking in the distance or even on tv.

She walks well on a lead but does tend to want to run ahead and walks best when side by side to her sister.

She had learnt to sit for treats and is very attentive to what your doing.

She enjoys a good tug of war with a little teddy bear.

She will need further training and should attend puppy school.
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

So Cadbury is a Maltese X Shih Tzu X Pug X Jack Russell Terrier but seems to be more Shih Tzu than the other breeds.

Cadbury was adopted on 26 April 2020 after 3 months in foster care

Jack Russell - male

My name is Comet and I'm approximately 11 years old. I was surrendered into DCH care in November 2019. When I arrived my carer noticed I had pyoderma around my mouth. I am on medication and it is now currently healed. I am currently being weaned off my meds however If the pyoderma returns I may need to take the meds for the rest of my life to control it. It will most likely be April that I can move to my forever home.

I am looking for a forever home with someone who is home a lot. I love human company. I spend all day with my carer whilst she works at home and at night as well. I love to sit on the lounge next to her with my head on her lap. I am toilet trained in the house. I will stand at the door when I need to go out for a toilet break. I will sleep through the night and not bother you.

I am looking for a home that preferably has no other pets. I like to receive all the attention. I can be intolerant of other dogs though I currently live with a few resident dogs and they don't bother me. I chase cats so a cat free home is a must. I would most likely also want to chase other small pets as chasing these animals is part of my breed. I would be most suited to a quiet home. I can be a little unsettled by strangers in my home.

I love my daily walks. I am still very active. I have been diagnosed with a heart murmur. My murmur is non clinical and so at present it doesn’t affect my quality of life.

If you feel your home may be suitable for me please contact my foster carer and provide some details around your home environment. If we sound like a match then we can arrange a meet and greet. I am located at Revesby.

I am desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and have been flea and worm treated.

Comet was adopted on 12 April 2020 after 3 weeks in foster care



Jack Russell X - male

Teddy is a Jack Russell X (possibly with a beagle as he seems to have some beagle characteristics) who was surrendered to DCH because the owner's new rental home did not allow dogs.

Teddy is a very friendly dog who loves other dogs and people. He has spent the first ten years of his life as an outside dog so has not been house trained but that training is underway. He lives in doors at his foster home and is free to go outdoors whenever he likes.

He currently lives with 4 other dogs and they all get along great. Teddy does love the companionship of his foster carer and loves to sit with her on the couch.

He has settled in really well in his foster home and loves his daily walks and especially going to the dog park. At the dog park he loves saying hello to all the other dogs and getting pats from the people in the park. He is gentle and easy going. Teddy could live with another dog or on his own and could be a indoor or indoor/outdooor dog. He would benefit from a medium to large backyard. He has lots of energy for a 10 year old. He has had no experience with cats.

Teddy was adopted on 28 March 2020 after 4 weeks in foster care



Bull Dog (French) - female

Winnie didn’t have the best start to life, being found in pretty terrible condition. She had a very large burst cyst on her neck, fur missing all over and a deformed front foot.

Since being in care Winnie has flourished, receiving the medical treatment she so desperately needed. Winnie is a very chilled out girl and has only had positive reactions to every animal she has met, including rabbits! She has also lived with children aged 2 - 12 and just loves being around people.

Winnie will need a home that understands the breed and all that entails owning the French bulldog breed. Winnie is a dog that will require extra medical care as she gets older for arthritis and will need injections for this.

If you would like to discuss Adopting Winnie and then have a meet and greet with her please email us and we can set up a call.

Winnie was adopted on 25 March 2020 after 3 weeks in foster care



Kelpie - male

Shepherd is a gorgeous young man, believed to be mostly Kelpie, and is around 8 months old. He has recently come into care and is living with a number of other dogs, and is absolutely perfect with all of them. He loves all people, can't get enough of the love, and is good with children but would be best with those who are a bit older as he is a jumpy young boy at the moment!
Shepherd came from a home where he began to get separation anxiety. Despite being walked, he doesn't cope if he is by himself, especially for long periods. However since being in care, he has been with another dog who has high energy like himself, and has shown no signs of his anxiety. As a result, it would be great for Shepherd to go to a home where he has another high-energy doggo to play with.
Please contact Rod, Shepherd's carer, to learn more about this boy and organise to meet him!

Shepherd was adopted on 18 March 2020 after 3 weeks in foster care



Kelpie X - male

My name is Louie or Loulou and I'm a typical energetic chocolate Kelpie puppy. I absolutely love people and I'm good with other dogs.

My energy levels are high so my forever family would need to have a rather active lifestyle: going to the beach, camping, bush walking and hiking are regular activities I really enjoy. When I am not given enough attention or exercise, I tend to get bored and rearrange the whole garden. I would benefit greatly from living with another similar dog as it would teach me the rules of the house.

Puppy School is needed and preferably owners with experience in training puppies/dogs as a strict and consistent training will redirect my energy into productive learning.

I currently weigh around 12kgs and I'm nearly 6 months. It is hard to say how heavy I'll be as an adult but probably around 20kgs and I'm not a tall dog.

I have a super positive personality and I am good with cats. My excitement can get the best of me but I am good to stay in the garden while my carers are at work with my toys. I can keep myself entertained when alone and I'm not a barker. However, once you're home, I need your full attention!

If you think you fit this description, you might be the awesome family I've been waiting for!

I am desexed, wormed, flea-free with my 1st vaccination done and I've got a nice short coat that doesn't shed much.

Louie was adopted on 07 March 2020 after 2 months in foster care



Pomeranian x - female

Delightful Polly is a quiet well-adjusted friendly 4.35kg bundle of love. Polly was found wandering the streets and was picked up and brought to the Pound. Despite an ad being placed in the local paper, no one came forward to claim her.

Polly loves to cuddle up on the lounge with whichever human is available. She will also lay at your feet and rollover waiting for a belly rub. It seems as though in her previous life, she either slept on her human's bed or very close by on the floor. Polly enjoys little adventures and seems to travel well in the car, and also walks well on her lead during her little walking adventures.

Polly is currently living inside most of the time, with someone around her for most of the day, so it would be great if Polly can go to a home where her humans will be around a lot! She seems to have some toilet training, as her carer has noticed she does a little dance around in a circle to let her know its time to go.

Polly is very possessive and wants to be with you always. She is currently in a home with four small to medium size dogs, but only has limited contact with them, as at first, Polly seems to get along well with other dogs, but once she has made herself comfortable, she tends to be a little possessive when they are near her human and snaps at them and runs away. Therefore, Polly would be best suited in an only dog home so she can enjoy all of your attention. Polly is not currently living with any cats, but we believe she has lived with one cat previously and didn't seem to be too impressed by them!.

Expressions of interest welcome by e-mail detailing where Polly is likely to reside, and general household situation and where her owners are mostly at home.

Polly has experience of living with teenagers and has come out of her shell since her dental issues were rectified initially in foster care.

Polly is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, and has received a clean bill of health from the vet.

Should you feel Polly could be the girl for you, feel free to e-mail her carer and organise a meet and greet.

Polly was adopted on 06 March 2020 after 2 months in foster care

Toronto (Tonto)

Toronto (Tonto)

Terrier x Chi - male

Hi, I'm the mighty Toronto or Tonto for short, well I am short but I've got a tall personality. I might be 3kgs but it's 3kgs of solid love and affection for my fellow humans and caninies.
I was found wandering the streets out west and brought in to a Pound for some shelter and a vaccination. I am now on the hunt again for a furever home. I was thankful that DCH Animal Adoptions rescued me even though I know it's an interim holiday.
I love my tummy being scratched and can do a few tricks on demand. Whilst your're driving, I do tend to want you to make contact somehow with me but I will settle if you hold my paw. I am low shed and stay still in the laundry tub whilst being washed.
I'm super friendly and am looking for a home with someone who needs company either for them or for their canine too.
I'm due to be desexed at the end of next week so I'll need time for the wound to heal but in the meantime if you'd like to meet me, I'd be delighted.
Please e-mail my carer with a description of your background and how you will care for me and we will shuffle through all the applications and select the best match.
Thanks for reading my profile and I hope to meet you soon.
Bye for now, love Toronto xx Meet and greet 18/02/2020 successful

Toronto (Tonto) was adopted on 03 March 2020 after 3 weeks in foster care
