Cooper

Cooper

Purebred German Shorthair Poin - male

Cooper is a typical loveable and excitable GSP. He is obedience trained but pushes the boundaries so he probaby requires an experienced owner. He gets along fantastically with other dogs and is obsessed with fetching the ball. He loves children but was surrendered because he was too hyper with the little ones

so we would recommend he only be homed with children around 10 or older. Cooper gets very anxious when left alone so he needs to be with another dog or an owner who is home most of the time. We would also advise 6 foot fences as he will try to pursue birds. Cooper previously lived with cats and is a truly stunning looking dog. og.

Cooper was adopted on 27 August 2008 after 4 months in foster care

Peanut

Peanut

Purebred Beagle - male

Peanut is an 18 m old tri beagle. He is a beautiful looking dog that looks like he has a smile on his face- a cheeky smile at that. Peanuts has a very sociable temperamnet and is very playful. He wants to play with everybody- children and adults, other dogs and cats. He is a bundle of energy and will need an active owner. He loves his walks and walks well on a lead. Peanuts is suited to outdoors and with the right owner may be an indoor/outdoor dog. Peanuts would best suit a house with a good sized backyard and live with another active, friendly dog. Peanuts' $250 fee includes a desexed, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations and woming beagle.

Thumper

Thumper

Greyhound - male

Let me introduce Thumper, after a not so successful racing career, Thumper is looking for a new family to enjoy his retirement with. He is currently in foster care with another greyhound and a boxer and has settled in like he has been here for ever. He is quite happy to just lounge around all day in the sun and relax. He needs no more exercise than any other breed of dog and when he does go out he is a total gentleman in the car and to walk. Thumper is really low maintenance and is suitable for a home with smaller dogs and children as he loves both. Please don't be put off by his breed, greyhounds make the most lovely family pets.

Bronte

Bronte

Cattle Dog x - female

Bronte is a happy little girl with a carefree spirit.. Nothing seems to bother her much and she is learning more as she grows every day.. She knows her name which she learnt quickly? and currently enjoys the company of the other 2 pups she is staying with? While she loves to play she is also the pup who loves to curl up with her human after her dinner and regularly goes to sleep on her foster mum's lap after she has had cuddles? She was the first of the pups to work out that there was a way out of the puppy yard they are in so that she could interact and play with the adult cattle dogs where she is living at the moment.. She is a brave little soldier who didn't hesitate to run up to the big dogs wanting to meet and play with them? She appears to be an adaptable little girl who would probably suit most situations, and although she hasn't been around children, she is a lot like her brother Jovi was, and he has just been adopted by a family with children.. I believe she would be as gentle with kids as he is..

Bronte was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 3 weeks in foster care

Simba

Simba

Samoyed x - male

Poor Simba was rescued from the pound with a terribly matted coat. While he was under being desexed the vet staff tried to brush out his coat but it was so bad around the backside, rear legs and tail that he needed to be shaved in those areas. After all this the poor boy got such an infection from the desexing operation that he could not lay down and was trying to go to sleep standing up. After another visit to the vets , appropriate medication, an Elizabethan collar and lots of TLC from his foster family he is doing very well. He was suspected of being a Keeshond x when originally rescued from the pound but now he?s in care he is more likely a Samoyed x Belgium Shepherd. Whatever his parentage his, he is a stunningly unique looking 2 year old boy, being all black except for a little white patch on his chest and with the classic spitz pointed ears and face, a curled tail and thick long coat, what a particularly handsome boy he is. He is a very lovable boy, he has such a gentle sweet nature and just loves everyone.

Simba was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 3 weeks in foster care

Starr

Starr

Cattle x Kelpie x staffy? - female

Starr is a pretty little girl, with eyes that would make her the envy of many ladies as she appears to have permanent eyeliner highlighting them. She is a sweet hearted, bright pup, who has been raised in a family home and handled regularly by young children and shares the same nice nature that her mother and brother Digby have. She is white all over, however she will probably colour up as she is starting to have the cattle speckle coming through. Her mother was a cattle x kelpie, her father is unknown. It is also unknown how much colour Starr will end up with. One thing that I am sure of is that Starr is looking for a home where she will shine as a loyal, loving family member where she will happily shared cuddles and love.

Starr was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 1 month in foster care

Coco

Coco

Purebred German Shepherd - female

Coco is a 7 year old purebred German Shepherd who was used for breeding because she is so beautiful and has such a loving sweet gentle personality. Then 1 day they looked out their window and decided that there were far too many dogs in the backyard and as she was no longer needed Coco was surrendered to the pound. Her breeding days are now over and she is looking for a family to love and take care of her for the rest of her days. Coco is great with children and other dogs, enjoys long walks and of course plenty of pats and cuddles. She is such a gentle easy going girl, always willing to please and just loves everyone.

Unfortunately Coco suffered some nasty facial injuries after she was attacked by another dog. She will make a full recovery however we are seeking donations to help us cover her vet bills. If you can help sponsor some of these vet bills then please call Megan on 9627 2767 or email dchanimaladoptions@iprimus.com.au or click here

Thanks to David, Sarah and Karina for their donations towards these vet fees

Coco was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 2 months in foster care

Ziggy

Ziggy

Medium Size Cross Breed - male

We are unsure what breeds Ziggy might be, but he has black spots / speckles all over his body, and 2 patche's over his eyes. He could well be a dalmation or pointer x, except his ears are more upright. Ziggy is a very loving, gentle, smoochy boy, who would be cuddled all day long. He loves going for his walks and plays with lots of doggy friends at the park. He is always looking over at me or coming back to lick my hand and to check that ii am not too far away. Ziggy is very easy going and laid back who likes to lie in the sun and wrestle with my dog Ozzie. He is a very shy pup so would be best suited to a home with another dog for confidence as just he follows my dogs around or and lie's with them. Ziggy really is no trouble and will grow to be a very handsome young boy.

Ziggy was adopted on 11 August 2008 after 5 months in foster care
