Mason

Mason

Large x Breed - male

Mason has a bouncy outlook on life, still young he is very food orientated for training which is great. He walks well loose lead and travels in the car no issues. Due to a shaky start he is learning basic social interaction with other dogs at meet and greet. He arrived with the attitude of shouting HELLO at other dogs, rather than approaching quietly tail wagging. This has now changed with correct training and he is happily living alongside another foster. He does have issues with being left alone, at night especially. Being passed around a couple of homes/carers before coming to me has made him wary of being left alone so he'd suit someone who includes him in their every day activities and will bring him inside at night to settle. A doggie friend would be better as he loves the constant company. He adores my kids but with such long legs and a happy personality he may be a little large for toddlers, so think about that when considering him for your home.

Mason was adopted on 15 April 2012 after 2 months in foster care

Gypsy

Gypsy

Labrador - female

Gypsy is a gorgeous girl, a 6 year old golden Labrador with beautiful Topaz eyes and a gentle nature. She is very well behaved, no puppy chewing or destruction and a lovely dog. She has adjusted very well from outdoor life to indoor life and really enjoys human company. She loves a cuddle and lots of attention. She is not used to walking on a lead and does need some more training, but she enjoys her walks and knows her basic commands. She is very good with other dogs and just wants to play. It would be good for her to find a family with older children as she is used to children and misses them. Gypsy would make a great pet for a family with a good backyard and who will allow her inside as she loves being with people.

He is in care in the Wollongong area.

Max

Max

Tibetan Spaniel x - male

Max is a happy smiley boy who loves company of people, dogs and cats! He enjoys sharing time with you so would suit someone who has the time to be his best mate. Whilst he has been living with me, we have enjoyed a daily walk and he sets a cracking pace easily keeping up with my bigger dog. He has shared space with my 3 cats and pays them scant attention. He has enjoyed coming inside and snoozing at my feet whilst we watch television in the evenings. I have brushed his silky smooth coat weekly and this will need to be maintained to keep him in top condition.He lays calmly on the floor whilst being brushed as he obviously enjoys the attention. Max enjoys his dinner and on a sunny day can be found in my yard munching on a bone.He is not a fussy eater and hasnt refused a meal. Max would like to meet you so please consider him when considering adding a new member to the family.

Max was adopted on 10 April 2012 after 6 days in foster care

Mercedes is as sweet as they come, she just loves to be around people and purrs non-stop when you pick her up for a cuddle. She would be suitable for most homes, she is gentle and playful. She is a delightful companion and it?s hard not to just carry her around all day so you can hear that sweet purr. She is clean with her litter tray and uses the scratching post with no problems.

Pearl

Pearl

British Bulldog - female

Pearl came into care after she was found living in a dirty enviroment with 7 other dogs and lots of cats. Pearl was living under the house and doesn't appear to have ever had any vet treatment. She has had a couple of litters of puppies in the past and upon coming into care was very underweight and had a shocking skin condition which is being treated. After our vets assessed her we've found she has more problems than first expected. Below is a list of her ailments.

  • Chronic unmanaged skin infection: Pyoderma
  • Bilateral untreated aural heamatomas
  • Chronic ear infection
  • Right cruciate rupture untreated leading to arthritic changes in the right stifle
  • Open draining pyometra (or infected uterus)
  • pendulous vagina due to slack ligaments, likely due to numerous pregnancies.

So Pearl has a long road of recovery ahead, which includes a knee replacement, but she is only young and despite the horrible life she has had so far Pearl is doing really well in foster care and we hope that she will make a full recovery from her numerous medical problems she's come into care with.

Pearls additional vet costs have so far been quoted at around $1400.

Thank you to Emmaline, Brenda, Holly, Anna, Vanessa, Kelly, Elouise, Deborah, Henry, Ann, Sharee, Alison, Jacquelin, Don, Davy, Browyn and Lesley for your generous donations, with all your help Pearl's vet fees have now been fully covered.

Pearl

Pearl

British Bulldog - female

Pearl came into care after a nice lady seen that she was in trouble and wasn't being looked after in her home, she had had multiple litters of puppies was underweight and had a horrible skin condition that needs 8 weeks of antibioctics to treat it. She is a lovely girl that gets along well with other dogs big and small and LOVES to play ball. Pearl is good with kids of all ages, however she is not good with cats at all and will not be rehomed to a family with a cat, she needs to be inside with the family which is something she hasn't experinced before. Pearl will be ready for her new home shortly but enquires are welcome now.

Celene

Celene

DSH - female

Celene is a lovely dainty girl, who loves leaping around chasing shadows. Once she gets to know you she can be the most affectionate and beautiful natured cat. She is so loving and appreciative for everything you give her. She's a lovely girl that needs a good home where she will be looked after and treated like she should have been all along. Celene is fine with the other cats, she has the most relaxed gentle nature. Celene is a good eater and is litter trained and seems to let you know with a sweet meow if she has other needs like wanting food, clean litter or a play outside. I believe that she would make a wonderful addition to any household.

Celene was adopted on 30 March 2012 after 5 months in foster care

Florence

Florence

female

Florence was found at 1 week old at a property after her mother was killed, a kind family looked after her and her sisters and bottle fed them. Florence is super cute and a real little character! She loves to play and explore. As they have been hand raised she is very friendly and used to be around kids and people so is not phased by noise. Florence is litter trained and an absolute pleasure to have around.

Florence was adopted on 28 March 2012 after 3 months in foster care

Marc

Marc

Kelpie - male

As a Christmas reject this boy deserves a loving forever home. He given as a surprise present but was rejected by the parents. He has ended up being taken away from mum at a too early age but is none the worse for it. One very handsome little chap who is typical of his breed so would suit an active person/family. Marc just loves people, walks, adventure and is a typical pup who is extremely curious about everything in life. He loves to be around you where ever you go, so he must be an inside/outside dog and very much a part of family activities. He's still toilet training as he's young but will master very quickly in his new home with patience and understanding.

Marc is located at Glenhaven

Marc was adopted on 26 March 2012 after 1 month in foster care
