Charlie

Charlie

Border Collie - male

Charlie is larger than life with the biggest heart to match and if you have children, little or big, then Charlie is quite the catch. With endless energy galore, Charlie will love you and the kids with all his heart and he won't be able to stop cuddling you all.

Like most Border Collie's Charlie is super smart so he does need a big yard to explore. Other dogs are not a problem, Charlie will share his food bowl for sure.

Lots of exercise is a must but you will not find it a chore, 2 big walks a day is what Charlie needs.

Cats aren't so keen on Charlie as he tends to stare them down like the Border Collie breed.

Charlie comes desexed, microchipped, heart-wormed checked, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated.

So if you want a house full of love then Charlie is your dog as he is like a gift from heaven above......

Charlie was adopted on 26 October 2014 after 4 days in foster care

Pip

Pip

Shih Tzu x - male

Pip is a lovely boy who is used to living with other dogs. He is very good with young children and has always been around them. He is used to being an outdoor dog and he only settles inside for short periods.

Pip is pretty independent but does love human company. Pip has a lovely nature, learns quickly and walks well on a lead. He obeys basic commands and only barks as a warning that something outside is amiss. Good watch dog in that he alerts you to cars and people arriving.

Sadly Pip's current owners are no longer able to look after him and he is looking for a new home.

Pip is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated. Pip is available for adoption within NSW only.

Farley

Farley

Ridgeback x - male

Farley is a ridgeback x (currently about labrador size but still has some growing to do) who is friendly, playful and knows basic obedience.

He gets along with other dogs and is used to living with small children. Farley isn't a noisy dog and doesn't jump up but can still knock a child over when in a playful mood.

If you're looking for a fun loving, good natured dog to join your family then Farley just might be the one.

Farley was adopted on 17 October 2014 after 4 weeks in foster care

Calli

Calli

DSH - female

Calli was found dump, pregnant and the vet predicted she was only around 6 months old herself. A nice passerby found her and took her to their local vet where she then came into the care of DCH. Calli was a wonderful young mum to her two babies. Calli is such a beautiful natured girl that she even took on a orphan kitten while feeding her own babies. Calli herself is a beautiful loving girl who adores all people, being picked up and held on your shoulder and lots of cuddles. She will gently head butt your face when picked up and will follow you around everywhere, just to be with you and see what you are doing. Calli has lived with a budgie and never tried to climb the cage or attack the bird. She is currently living with other cats, dogs and a free range pet magpie.

Calli was adopted on 15 October 2014 after 1.6 years in foster care

Moses

Moses

Ragdoll Seal Point - male

Moses and Naboo are 2 purebred Ragdoll male cats who are about to turn 2. They are registered with ANCATS.

Their owners are looking to surrender them and to have them re-homed due to Health concerns due to an infestation of ticks in their yard.

I am taking expressions of interest so if you can offer both of them a home please contact us. They would like to stay together and we are looking to find a home where they can remain together.

Moses is a seal point Ragdoll - he is slightly bigger than his brother
Naboo is a seal bi-colour Ragdoll.

The cats were born on 10/10/12.
We bought them from Rags2Riches near Newcastle and collected them just before Christmas.

Their vaccinations are up to date.
They are both desexed.

On Saturday both cats went to a specialist cat vet and got a tick clip, nail clip, were wormed and treated with frontline spray. Due to the tick clip they are shaved however its temporary and their fur will grow back.

Moses and Naboo spent most of the first 2 years indoors and in a large enclosure in our garden. A couple of months ago they dug their way out of the enclosure, keen to explore more of their surroundings. They love being able to go outside.

Moses weighes approx 7.5kg and Naboo is about 4.9kg.

Moses is a bit of a sook - they both like to be near us rather than sitting on our laps. They don't mind being picked up and cuddled for a couple of minutes. They both like sitting in boxes, Naboo likes sitting on any study you are doing. The owners had them both in a cattery last year and they were social with the other cats. They tend to be wary of visitors.

Apart from the ticks, they have been happy and healthy and have only needed to go to the vet for routine checks and vaccinations.
Moses has a kink in the tip of his tail -we were told that maybe he got trodden on as a small kitten.

Moses was adopted on 12 October 2014 after 6 days in foster care

The vet where we had them groomed did tell us that they have inherited poor quality teeth which will need attention earlier than might be expected. Naboo's teeth are the worst. Moses has a kink in the tip of his tail -we were told that maybe he got trodden on as a small kitten.

Naboo was adopted on 12 October 2014 after 6 days in foster care

Eva

Eva

DSH - female

Eva is looking for a forever home. She has a very lovely playful nature and loves to run around the house attacking and pouncing on anything that catches her attention, but will also gladly curl up in your lap for a little nap.

Eva loves getting lots of attention from her carers, and doesn’t really like being alone. She is good around my other two cats, and will eat anything you put in her food bowl.

Eva would be a great addition to any family that can give her lots of love and attention.

She is located at Ryde NSW

  • Thanks to S.Barnett for her generous sponsorship of Eva

Eva was adopted on 05 October 2014 after 8 months in foster care

Sheba

Sheba

Domestic Short Hair - female

Queen Sheba! This beautiful kitty is gorgeous, elegant, intelligent and the right amount of crazy. She is shy and reserved until she gets to know you, but once you have her trust this gorgeous girl will wrap you and your family around her dainty, little paws.
She is hilariously vocal when she wants food or to play, demanding when claiming her 'rightful' position on your lap and a snuggly, affectionate 2am pillow stealer.
Sheba is used to a home with children and a dog. In true royal style she slaps the dog for stealing her food but thinks nothing of doing the same to the dog. Sheba has a minor obsession with string, and the cursor on the computer screen, and sleeping between the sheets. She's really is great company.
Sheba is the full package - if there weren't more furbabies to rescue she'd be staying here forever.

Sheba was adopted on 04 October 2014 after 3 weeks in foster care

Merlin

Merlin

DSH - male

Merlin is one smoochy boy who just loves a snuggle,a very large gentle giant. At only 10 months old Merlin is almost the size of a small dog with a heart as big and as kind as he is. Merlin has a very gentle spirit, nothing seems to bother him. Nothing gives Merlie more pleasure than cuddling on your lap or anyones lap for that matter of fact. Whether it is my little niece or nephew when they come to visit or one of the many dogs he lives with. Unfortunately when Merlin tries to cuddle up to Banjo the magpie he lives with.Merlin will cop a sharp beak on the bottom and a pull of his ears, still this doesn't seem to bother him. Merlin has fur so soft to the touch it feels like velvet. So if you are looking for one very handsome gentle boy who is child, dog and bird friendly Merlie is your boy.

Merlin was adopted on 27 September 2014 after 8 months in foster care

Sissy

Sissy

DSH - female

Sissy is the easiest cat to live with & she ticks all the boxes. She is fine if on her own, greets me each evening like a long lost friend, she is playful, affectionate, gets on well with my 2 older cats & all of the foster kittens that end up in my home. She just takes everything as it comes & she is a very easy going cat.

I love her eyes as they have a very soft look about them as if she has just woken up. She is a dark tabby with no white on her & I love her black paws.

Sissy is now a very healthy energetic cat

Sissy lives with me at Banksia & she would love to meet you if you are looking for the best cat to join your family.

Thanks to Winnie,Tonya and Jaimin for their generous donations towards Sissy's vet care. Her extra expenses have now been fully sponsored
