Roo

Roo

Cattle x Kelpie - male

Roo is a high energy dog who would do best going to someone with space for him to run around and with someone who is an experienced dog owner.

I’d imagine he would make a great working dog if someone were to teach him the ropes as he loves to run and is very instinctual.

Roo is an absolute goof-ball and provides endless giggles! He loves to play fetch tho is not very good an bringing things back and is always up for a game of tug (but watch your fingers!).

He plays well will other dogs but can often be too rough and boisterous for the little ones.

He is house trained and knows basic commands (sit, stay, leave it, lie down, shake, on your mat, come).
He walks well on lead but sometimes jumps up and grabs the lead to play tug and it can be difficult to get him to stop.

This ball of energy loves a cuddle and is extremely affectionate and loyal. He is also used to living inside with the family and quickly becomes your second shadow.

House Trained: Yes

Behaviour around other animals: OK with animals generally but can be to rough for smaller dogs.

Behaviour with Kids: Jumps on them but eventually settles

General Behavioural Issues: Gets over excited and can be nippy. Jumps on people to greet in particular children. Additional training should help.

Vaccinated: Yes

Desexed: Yes

Cash

Cash

Staffy X Great Dane X Border C - male

Hello everyone, my name is Cash and I am around 16 month's old. I am a crossbreed boy who is a mix of Staffy, Border Collie and Great Dane and I am approximately 50kg in weight.

We didn't know if Great Dane was true but I've grown into a big boy, so I think it must be! For reference I'm standing next to my carer in that photo, who is 1.77m tall, so I've certainly got some height when I'm on my back paws! I feel I have been in care too long, and suspect it's because I've grown so big. But I'm really gentle and love love! I'm also super loyal and super smart. I have grown up with other dogs, puppies, cats and tiny little kittens so I'm totally happy with all of them. I'm also super healthy and up-to-date on all my vet work.

I know - with big does come strong - and, although I'm almost grown up now - I do need help controlling my energy! So my new home would be best not to have young children in case I get too enthusiastic. Even better if you have another dog! It really makes me feel just next level awesome to have another dog around me, so that would be wonderful.

I'd really love to meet you if you think I could join your family! Please call Jo, my carer, on 0401 900 696 if you'd like to say hi! Bye for now, love Cash.

Cash was adopted on 16 October 2019 after 1.2 years in foster care

Oreo

Oreo

Domestic - female

Oreo is a chubby girl with sweet personality.

She loves chasing around with her siblings and her favourite toy is a teaser. She is a little bit shy with people at first, but will definitely come out of her shell when she is comfortable.

She will love another friend in her new home, however as long as there is a teaser to play with, she won’t mind at all.

As she has very strong attachment with her siblings, it will be ideal if she could go to a forever loving home with one of her siblings.

Preferably to be an indoor cat.

Located in Hurstville

Adoption fee includes Microchipping, Vaccination, Worming and Desexing.

Oreo was adopted on 12 October 2019 after 6 months in foster care

Kye (now Ninja)

Kye (now Ninja)

DSH - male

Kye and his brother Kovu were rescued from Campbelltown Pound after they were handed in at about 4 weeks old.

Even from such a young age, they have shown confidence and affection towards every person and animal they meet!

Kye purrs as soon as he is near people and talks to everyone! This playful little boy seems happiest when he is around people and is very curious about whatever is going on.

Kye would be great with any family and cat friendly animal, as he seems to enjoy company. He is already making friends with our big Golden Retrievers.

As he does not seem to have any fear or flight reflexes, Kye would be best kept Indoors Only, so he does not get hurt.

If you would like to meet this tiny tabby, please contact me to arrange a day.

Kye (now Ninja) was adopted on 11 October 2019 after 1 month in foster care

Kovu (now Simon)

Kovu (now Simon)

DSH - male

Kovu and his sister Kiara were rescued from Campbelltown Pound after they were handed in at about 4 weeks old.

Even from such a young age, they have shown confidence and affection towards every person and animal they meet!

Kovu has a smaller miaow than his sister but is just as demanding when he wants a cuddle or food, and is always running around my feet when he sees me. He purrs instantly when he is picked up!

Kovu is a beautiful dark tabby with big eyes and loads of love to give. He would fit in with any family, and with any cat friendly animal. Kovu is very people orientated, and will thrive in a loving Forever Home.

As he does not seem to have any fear or flight reflexes, Kovu would be best kept Indoors Only, so he does not get hurt.

If you would like to meet this gorgeous little guy, please contact me to arrange a day.

Kovu (now Simon) was adopted on 11 October 2019 after 1 month in foster care

Penny

Penny

Domestic Short Hair - female

Penny is a very special lady. She came into our care around a year ago when found abandoned in a cage together with her tiny babies. A great mum to her own kittens, Ivy and Rosebud, she took up the challenge her carer offered – to feed and nurture 7 other stray kittens at the same time!

After this heroic effort, and with all 9 kittens fully grown, it's definitely time for this lovely kitty to be rewarded with being thoroughly spoilt by her own furever family.

Penny is a pretty grey tortoiseshell, and still playful and inquisitive. She has proven to be a sweet and affectionate feline companion who loves spending time with her human family. Of course, she has had plenty of experience living with kittens, and another cat, but has also very happily lived alongside a dog in her foster home.

As a young adult, Penny doesn’t require constant attention – just to be loved - so is likely to fit in with most family circumstances. She has been an indoor-only cat since she has been in our care and would prefer to stay so given her previous experience of the outdoors.

Penny is microchipped, vaccinated and de-sexed. If you would like to visit Penny in her foster home located near Windsor, please contact her carer, Debbie, on 0405 144 415.

Penny was adopted on 07 October 2019 after 1.1 years in foster care

Russell

Russell

Jack Russell - male

Russell has been surrendered due to his owner having just sustained a very serious back injury, rendering her unable to bend, feed and bath Russell who will be taking up carer's residence in the Sutherland Shire. According to the Vet, he is a very healthy and active dog for his age and will need at least once daily walks otherwise may get bored and try and run away to meet his active outlet. Currently weighing in at 8.43kgs, his ideal weight should be around 7kgs. It is clear Russell loves company - not within eye reach but he is content as long as he knows someone is home, otherwise he becomes anxious. Russell was introduced to a friend's cat and other dogs. He was very friendly towards all of them. Russell is getting to know how to use a doggie door and is keen to please. Russell likes running along the sand at the beach on his extension lead but doesn't particularly like the water. Expressions of interest please to his carer on the above e-mail address.

Russell was adopted on 07 October 2019 after 2 weeks in foster care
