Raffety

Raffety

Border Collie x - male

These siblings have had a hard start to life, dumped in the pound after growing up with little human interaction. They are nice natured, friendly pups who are on the shy side and need a family that has experience with dogs and the time to help them build up their trust and positive experiences with people.

Julia

Julia

Ridgeback x - female

Julia is very friendly girl who gets on well with others dog and loves children (as with most adult dogs, we suggest suitable for children 5yo or older). She walks nicely on leash and is currently learning basic obedience commands (SIT, STAY, COME). She is about the size of a tall Labrador. Julia would make a great companion dog as she just loves a lot of attention.

Willow and Zoey

Willow and Zoey

Rottweiler cross Kelpie - female

These 2 girls are the sweetest gentlist pups I have had. Willow is a little more reserved then Zoey, but both adore the company and attention of adults, children and other dogs. They have been with cats and are not bothered by them at all. These 2 girls walk well on a lead and will also happily follow along next to you off leash, they have also learnt come and sit. These girls are very bonded to each other, so if you're after a ready made doggie family then these girls could be the ones for you.

Willow and Zoey was adopted on 18 January 2010 after 1 month in foster care

Minty

Terrier x - male

Minty is a such a sweet tiny little Dainty girl. She's very happy, affectionate and quite the character she loves to tuck her nose under her paw and is allways happily trotting nearby or cuddled up to her older foster brother. Minty loves to be on your lap and is very social towards other dogs. She is gentle and great with children. We believe she will remain a small dog and not get a great deal bigger as she has very fine bone structure.

Nilla

Nilla

Greyhound - female

Nilla is a beautiful, soft natured, girl who is very affecionate, friendly and is very people orientated. She loves nothing more than to be with her human family getting all the attention. Nilla is very playful and she would love some children to play with at her new home or even another doggie friend to play with. She is learning how to fetch a ball (well she chases it anyway doesnt bring is back as yet). Nilla lives with 9 other dogs 5 of whom are chihuahuas she is great with them and you can often find them curled up asleep together in the kennel, she is very well socialised with big and small dogs. She also lives with 3 cats who are very dog friendly and rub up against her all the time and she is also good with them but she could only go to a cat friendly home if her new feline friends aren't scared of dogs and dont run away from her if they do she will chase them. Nilla requires little excerise she gets a 10 minute walk a day and thats enough for her and she would require even less if she had some children to play with her and keep her busy. She sleeps most of the day doesn't fret or bark if left by herself during the day so she would make a great only dog too. Nilla walks great on the lead and never pulls. If Nilla sounds like your new family member please give us a call she would love to meet you.

Nilla was adopted on 15 January 2010 after 2 months in foster care

Porter

Porter

Border Collie x Kelpie - male

Porter is a very handsome smart boy who know how to fetch and catch a ball, loves playing with water from the hose and walks very well on a lead. He is very friendly when meeting new dogs and loves his pats and hugs. sadly he was bitten on the tail by another dog at the pound and as a result half his tail has been amputated. Porter would make a fantastic family dog as he is very gentle with children and only wants to be loved.

Unfortunately during his stay at the pound Porter was bitten on the tail by another dog. As a result he lost the tip of his tail however further investigation by the vets have determined that his tail has been broken further down and there is nerve damage and exposed bone. Sadly this means half of Porter's tail will need to be amputated. Luckily he should make a full recovery and this won't cause him any ongoing problems.

If you can help sponsor some of the additional vet costs for Porter's surgery, which have come to $350, please call Judy on 9674 4824 or email dchanimaladoptions@iprimus.com.au or click below. Thank you to Lesley, Denise and Celia for your generous donations towards Porters surgery. His vet fees have now been fully covered.

Barney

Barney

Corgi x Cattle Dog - male

Barney was abandoned as a young dog left to wander the streets all alone. The resident store owner felt sorry for him so would leave food out for him. However Barney belonged to no-one. Barney had to find different places to sleep at night to stay dry and warm.

Anne a DCH Animal Adoption foster career noticed that Barney always seemed to hang around this store and when she equired with the owner of the store he informed her that Barney had been abandoned some years ago and had continued to hang around the local Streets. Barney then came into DCH Animal Adoptions care. For the first few days Barney was very sad and depressed as he was unsure of what was going on and he did not understand English very well. However after a few days he began to trust and he started to relax settling in and making himself at home. Now after being in care for about a month Barney has completely changed and is a very happy confident dog who loves human company but equally enjoys playing and hanging out with his new found canine friends. He is very gentle with children and when anyone gives him attention he laps it up. Barney doesnt really like his feline friends as he feels that they are put on earth to chase (not harm) but chase.

Generally Barney is now a well adjusted happy dog who has learnt after all this time to be a dog and hang out in a back yard where he gets plenty of Love, food, shelter and companionship without having to try to hard.

Barney was a street dog for many years. Without a warm home to call his own or someone to take him to the vet when he was ill, he was in a fairly poor state when he came into care. We took him straight to the vets and he was diagnosed with severe arthritis in his left stifle and thoracic spinal pain. Barney was put on medication (rimadyl) anti inflammatory to see how he would respond.

Within a week of being on medication he started improving and acting like a two year old dog running and wrestling with his canine friends. At this stage he was then taken back to the vets for xrays, dessexing and a hernia repair. Barney is doing so well that we have reduced his medication dose and have since been able to take him completely off the medication and he has not looked back. He will probably need medication in the future but is currently comfortable without it.

Barney's medications and vet bills have come to $488 and we are seeking sponsorship to help us cover these additional costs.

If you can help please call Megan on 9627 2767 or email dchanimaladoptions@iprimus.com.au or click below Thank you to Kathy, Kimberley and Riikka for your generous support. Barney's vet fees have now been fully sponsored.
