Sam

Sam

Great Dane/Pointer x ? - male

Sam is a unique looking dog. With beautiful Merle markings that get darker around his back and tan over his legs. We're not sure what Sam is but he has the body shape of a Pointer or Great Dane type and is looking to be a large size boy when fully grown. Sam knows basic obedience commands but needs work on lead and when out and about as sadly he's been a bit unsocialised during his puppy months. Sam is very friendly and loves people. He's good with other dogs and very playful, but a home with another playful dog who is older and can teach him some doggy manners would be ideal. Sam is still learning not to jump up and like many large breed adolescent dogs, he's unaware of his own size. So small kids could easily be knocked over, but Sam's intentions are well meaning. A big puppy, Sam will make a loving and playful addition to a home experienced with large dogs.

Sam was adopted on 10 August 2008 after 1 month in foster care

Zorro

Zorro

German Spitz - male

Zorro is a very stunning black spitz. He is the larger type. he would be approx 15kg. He is black with some grey/charcoal around his nose and has streaks of grey through his magnificent tail. From what I have seen of Zorro he is a very intelligent dog and walks very well on the lead. He makes himself at home by moving blankets and putting them on his trampoline bed. He is definately the type of dog that needs to be included in activities. I would say he could stay outside with shelter for part of the day but when you are home would like attention and be inside with you. I think Zorro would be good at obedience etc as he seems to pick up things pretty quick and is very obliging. He would be a very loyal dog to someone who could give him the attention he deserves.

Zorro was adopted on 10 August 2008 after 2 months in foster care

Charlotte

Charlotte

Terrier x - female

Charlotte (Charli) is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She loves to sit with her family, even on the lounge just to be with them. Charli is a very smart young dog and has already picked up housetraining and other basic obedience. She is good to walk on a lead and gets along great with the other 2 dogs in the family and is ok with their cat. Charli is a very alert dog so would be good for someone who doesn't mind a watch dog. She enjoys her exercise but is not an overactive dog. Charli would be excellent either with children or other dogs but does like to have some company around. Charli is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Levi

Levi

Cavalier x - male

Levi is a happy, outgoing little boy who is very, very cute to look at. He does get along with other dogs but would be fine as an only dog also. He likes playing with his toys and going for walks. Levi is being housetrained but it appears as if he is used to being an inside dog most of the time. He is not a barker and is good in the car. Levi would be great with kids. He will be a lovely little addition to any family but would benefit from a little extra training. Levi is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Levi was adopted on 08 August 2008 after 1 month in foster care

Gizmo

Gizmo

Terrier x - male

Gizmo may not be traditionally beautiful but he is very cute in his own way. Some people who have seen him think he is absolutely gorgeous (which of course he is). His coat is a lovely golden colour and will not take much grooming at all, just a good brush now and then. He does have bat-type ears which only makes him cuter. Gizmo does have one good party trick

he can do a handstand and walks along on his two front legs

very amusing. Gizmo is a very well behaved boy and is definitely an inside dog. He is housetrained and is great in the car. Gizmo is used to being off lead at the dog park and beach and comes when called. He is good with other dogs but would probably be fine as an only dog as long as he has someone around. Although he is only young he does seem to like the quieter life where he can just sit on your lap all day and sleep curled up beside you at night. He does like to get out for a walk but would not require a lot of exercise. Gizmo is being cared for in the Wollongong area.

Gizmo was adopted on 08 August 2008 after 2 months in foster care

Mac

Mac

Daschund x - male

Mac sadly ended up at the pound and had ran out of time, but now he is living the life at his foster carers home and can't wait to have a home and family to call his own. Mac is a loving, affectionate and very well behaved little boy, he loves the company of people especially if that means he gets to stay inside at night and be a lap dog!....But he will let you know if he needs to go outside to the toilet. He is a small dog (about 30cm tall, he has a fairly long body similar to a dashound) but has a huge heart and lot of love to give. He is great with other dogs, cats and children. He would be suited to any household.

Mac was adopted on 29 July 2008 after 3 weeks in foster care

Digby

Digby

Cattle x Kelpie x staffy? - male

Digby is a beautiful little man who has lovely tan patches. He has a big spot on his back as well as one at the base of his tail and smaller marks on his ears.. His mother is a cattle x kelpie, however his father is unknown.. He has been raised in a home environment, with his brother and 2 sisters, and has been handled regularly by young children. He is a gentle little man with a lovely nature and a kind look in his eyes... While the rest of his body may appear to be white.. the cattle flecking is coming through in his coat... While it is not known how much he will colour up at this stage he is looking for and will choose a home where he will be loved and accepted no matter what..

Digby was adopted on 19 July 2008 after 1 month in foster care

Spike

Spike

male

Hi my names Spike. I love humans but don't worry I'll let you know if a stranger enters the yard. Watch out though once I've been introduced to you I expect lots of cuddles. I'm a VERY affectionate little man who was surrended with my mate Teddy to the pound

I can't understand why, no one gives as good as cuddles as me. Just ask my foster mum. I have very expressive eyes and although I'm fine outside I love being inside with you. I quite happily stay on my bed (your laps better though) and I'm no trouble. I have grade 1 luxating patella, (a very mild grade) which doesn't bother me at all. I also have a couple of grey whiskers (I think I look distinguished). I love cuddles from everyone

kids too, however I am quite small so kids over 6 would be better as someone younger may accidentally hurt me. I am ok with other dogs (I can get jealous though),which is why one friend in the yard is enough competition. On the other hand I do need that one companion as I will get bored without them. My foster mum thinks I might have a bit of pug in me as I bond very strongly to my owner and have similar colouring to a pug. I love my walks and my foster mum says I'm quite good ( except when I stop half way to reassure her that I still love her lots). I would prefer an experienced dog owner who understands the importance of the human being the pack leader.

Spike was adopted on 17 July 2008 after 10 months in foster care

Angus

Angus

Cattle - male

Gentle, sweet, snuggly, affectionate aren't the sort of description people expect when they are considering owning a cattle dog.. but young Angus is all that and more... He is a lively little fellow who is proving to be a very quick learner. He recognised his name within hours of being named Angus, and has since proven to be obedient when called, responding well to sit and come as well as other commands. Angus is a smoochy boy who loves cuddles, being showered with affection and attention, and is looking for a home where he could come inside on a daily basis and enjoy the company of his humans. He likes to play with the other cattle dogs where he is living at the moment, and mixes well with dogs of all ages. He is a submissive boy when he is approached by other dogs, then comes out of his shell and enjoys play and banter with them. His current foster home has also afforded Angus exposure to the cats living there, and continued interaction with them should enable him to consider a home where there is a dog savvy cat. He likes to play with his toys, however would much prefer the company and play that comes from interaction with other dogs and would be best placed in a home where he has the company of another dog. Angus is still only a pup with much to learn from humans willing to continue teaching him, and would enjoy being part of an active family who will encourage him to direct his energy in a positive way, through play and exercise. If you are looking for a boy who loves to run and play but also settle down at night for cuddles with, then Angus could be the friend you have been looking for.

Angus was adopted on 15 July 2008 after 1 month in foster care

Cilla

Cilla

Chihuahua x - female

Cilla is a timid Chi X that was surrendered into our care. She is submissive with other dogs and would love a small or medium canine friend for her to rely on. She absolutely adores her humans but she can be slow to trust you (particuly if you are male). Once she does she will follow you everywhere. She needs an understanding owner (who wont rush her) and who is home a reasonable amount of the time (She is not used to her humans being away for extended periods). She has not previously been a house dog however we think that she would love inside time (It has taken us a while to convince her that she is allowed in occasionally ). Once she is inside she is thrilled to be able to stay with her human. Nothing pleases her more than to snuggle on your lap while you watch TV.

Cilla was adopted on 14 July 2008 after 5 months in foster care
