Barney

Barney

Pomeranian - male

Hi! I'm Bedroom eyes Barney. I'm crossed with another breed. I weigh 9kgs and height-wise I come up just below the knee.
I'm cute as a button and waiting to meet a family who has a lot of patience when it comes to grooming. I was found wandering along the streets when the Ranger picked me up and kept me safe until my Rescue group collected me. Due to having been neglected, I have a lot of matted fur. My carer bathed the underside of me and I just loved rolling on the grass afterwards as she tried to dry me. My hair is slowly growing back and will continue to do so with quality food and care. My Vet has advised that someone has tried to shave me but this is the wrong grooming technique for my kind of double-coat fur, therefore, this hair loss can take up to 2 years to grow back.
I am very affectionate and I love laying next to my human. If my human stops patting me, I gently coax her hand back to where it was... I get on well with other dogs and am good on walks. I don't really know crossing the street manners, however am keen to learn. I do not bark, lunge or react, I just toddle along sniffing and enjoying the walk.
I do however know how to sit, stay, shake hands and am very gentle when being hand-fed treats.
I'm not great in the car and can become anxious after about 20 minutes.
I have a systemic heart murmur which means I will be on heart tablets for life. I started on 1/2 x 2.5mg Cardisure twice daily since my Vet visit. The medication can cost between $50-$100 / month depending on the quality of medication.
If after considering the above, I still sound appealing to you, please arrange to send my carer a detailed e-mail advising I'm yours for life, not just in lockdown and that you will look after all of my needs, especially my magnificent coat and heart. I will be spayed on 22nd September and will be available about 2 weeks after that. ***I have been placed on hold due to a number of suitable applicants.***
Hope you enjoyed your read, Due to having a limited lifespan, Barney has been adopted by his foster mum.

Barney was adopted on 14 October 2021 after 1 month in foster care

Ash & Zac

Ash & Zac

Domestic Short Hair - male

These gorgeous boys were adopted from DCH as bonded kittens in 2017, then age 2 months. 

Unfortunately, their mum has had to surrender them and DCH always takes back animals previously adopted from us - regardless of the circumstances. 

Zac (our ginger boy) was initially the more adventurous of the two, happily playing with his carer's resident kitty. Ash was a little more cautious but it didn't take too long for them both to settle into their new home and now they play and race around the house with the other foster kitties.

A bit of patience and lots of love with these boys will be well worth it. They are very affectionate and love to curl up close at night. Zac likes to curl up on a pillow and Ash tends to settle down on his carer's feet.

They are never far away when their carer settles on the couch for a night in watching TV and jostle for best position on her lap.

Monday to Friday they can often be found keeping their carer company while she's working, although they spend most of the time asleep on her desk. They'll often wake up and pay attention if they hear another voice during a meeting and then they want in on the chat letting everyone know what they think.

They enjoy a bit of time outside playing chase amongst the flowers but they need an outdoor space that is cat proof.

These boys would love a furever home together soon, so if you are looking for a couple of more mature kitties to join your family who like lots of attention but who are also happy to relax and laze around in a warm sunny spot these are the boys for you.

The boys are microchipped and desexed and are up to date with their vaccinations and flea and worming treatments.

If you are interested in learning more about these boys or would like to visit them at their foster home, contact their carer, Julie.

Ash & Zac was adopted on 13 October 2021 after 7 months in foster care

Violet & Rosie

Violet & Rosie

Domestic Short Hair - female

Originally taken into care with their 2 brothers, these cute little girls were adopted from DCH but were with their new family only a couple of months before being surrendered back to DCH due to a change in circumstances.

Violet (our grey and white sweetie) was the smallest kitten of the litter but her size doesn’t stop her and she’ll get in there for a rough and tumble with her sister and the other foster kitties she’s sharing a home with. She’s full of energy, very inquisitive and playful and if she’s going somewhere…she’s running.

Rosie is quite playful and enjoys chasing around the house with the other kitties too. She doesn’t often demand attention but when she does she’s not quiet about it and has the cutest little squeak.

Both girls can be picked up and cuddled although not for long and they are still getting used to it but they are happy to sit on their carer's lap and be stroked.

Before snuggling up together on their carer’s bed to sleep, they enjoy watching nature programs on TV, David Attenborough is a favourite.

The girls would love a new furever home together. They are vaccinated, desexed and microchipped so are ready to meet their new family.

If you are interested in learning more about these cuties or would like to visit them at their foster home, contact their carer, Julie.

Violet & Rosie was adopted on 12 October 2021 after 1 month in foster care

Camden

Camden

Domestic Short Hair - female

Camden has grown into a beautiful young adult with striking markings. Needing less attention now she is no longer a kitten, Camden may well fit in with a working person or couple, as easily as she could love an entire family.

Camden loves treats, and sleeping in her little pot with her baby beanie boo possum. She can be shy, but loves affection when she’s in the zone! She likes plenty of cuddles and loves to have a good belly rub, as well as playing, laying in the sun, and chasing things. Oh, and she has a great appetite.

Camden’s speciality is head butting and purring, and she really enjoys being with her human foster family. But, now she really would like to have her own family, so that in a short time this little girl can love you unconditionally.

Camden is already de-sexed, and is up to date on all her vet requirements.

If you’d like to arrange to meet Camden at her Narellan foster home, please contact her carer, Christine - on 0413 317 481.

Camden was adopted on 05 October 2021 after 5 years in foster care

Soozy

Soozy

maltese x mini poodle - female

Hi my name is Soozy and I'm a maltese cross mini poodle. I'm very gentle and affectionate. I am an indoor dog and would make a great companion for a couple, a person or maybe even a family.

I'm toilet trained. Take me for a walk at least twice a day and just say "wee wee" and I that i need to pee. I' suited to either a unit or a house.

I walk on the lead and am calm and obedient. As I previously lived with a single lady, I haven't had any experience with children, dogs or cats. My foster carer is helping me get used to other dogs.

Speaking of my foster carer, she says I'm adorable!

Soozy was adopted on 04 October 2021 after 2 months in foster care

Phoenix

Phoenix

English Springer Spaniel - male

Phoenix has arrived into foster care after having to be surrendered by his loving family of 9 years due to changes in circumstances brought about by this crazy year.

He is a 9 year old male English Springer Spaniel.

He is a friendly dog and loves lots of attention. He gets along perfectly with kids and does not bark much. He has grown up as an only dog in an outside environment and would come indoors on hold and cold days but is not toilet trained but does prefer to wait to use the grass when left indoors overnight so does seem to know what to do.

He is not a fan of other dogs regardless of their size so needs to be in a home with no other dogs and would need further socialisation and training to change his behaviour towards other dogs.

He is used to an exercise routine of 30-40 minutes of walks per day however he does not react well to seeing other dogs on his walks.

He gets fed once a day, one wet food sachet and two scoops of dry.

D.O.B.: 01/07/2012

Last Vaccination - 18/11/2020 - Due Nov 2021

Located in Waterloo, NSW and is currently being fostered as an indoors dog with lots of walks and exercise during the day.

Phoenix was adopted on 02 October 2021 after 3 weeks in foster care

Tyson

Tyson

Staffy - male

Hi my name is Tyson and I'm a 4 year old English Staffy who is looking for a new home because my sister and I weren't getting along. Don't hold that against me because everyone says I'm a great dog.

I'm great with children of all ages. I grew up with a family that has 3 young boys and I've lived with a family that has a 2 year old and a 3 year old and they adored me and I thought they were pretty good too.

I know basic commands and I'm house trained because I'm an indoor dog and love to sit with you on the couch. Being a Staffy, I love being with my family.

I'm a strong dog so I can pull on the lead and probably need a bit of training with that and also with my recall.

I'm a very loving and affectionate dog so I need someone who is going to love me back and give me plenty of exercise.

Tyson was adopted on 01 October 2021 after 2 weeks in foster care

Ace

Ace

American Staffy - male

Hi my name is Ace and I came to DCH after my family had to move houses and couldn't take me with them.

I'm now in foster care and live in a unit with my foster carer who I adore and who, I'm fairly sure, adores me too.

I love people, and dogs of all sizes. I absolutely love playing with my friends in the dog park. I'm very easy going and don't even mind when small dogs sit on my back. I'm a very happy dog. However, I do need my exercise and can be strong willed. I also like to sit on the bench in front of the coffee shop near where my foster carer lives and observe people while my foster carer enjoys a coffee. I'm a strong dog so additional training on how to walk on the lead would probably help. I like to be inside with my family.

I would suit dog owners who have had medium or large dogs before and who live an active lifestyle and would give me the exercise I need. I am not suitable for a family with very young children.

Ace was adopted on 01 October 2021 after 4 weeks in foster care
