Cattle x Kelpie - male - 5 months

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



Great Dane X Bull Arab - female - 5 months and 2 weeks

Ellie came into care with her brother as a very quiet and shy girl, but soon showed she was a little more confident than him. Ellie 6 months old and is .
a great dane x bull arab with mesmerizing blue/hazel eyes.
She's a very sweet and mature puppy who is good natured and enjoys life. She loves human and other dogs or cats company but she also keeps herself busy running around the garden with her toys. It's always quite a show to see her play! She knows sit, paw, lie down and roll over and is a quick and motivated learner. She loves bush walks and adventures (she's been camping, swimming and hiking).In a nutshell, she is a happy playful loving puppy looking for a caring family.

Please contact Jo on 0401 900696 for more information of Ellie, and to meet this lovely young girl.

Ellie will be de-sexed, immunised and heartworm tested prior to adoption.

Ellie has been in foster care since 05 November 2018, for 1 month



Pomeranian x Tibetan Spaniel - male - 5 years

Hi, meet Angus, a beautiful 5 year old small to medium sized Pomeranian cross who was rescued by his neighbour and put into DCH care after he was continually physically abused by his male owner. He weighs about 6 kgs.

Needless to say, Angus is not holding any grudges, does not bite, races to open doors and is toilet trained.

Angus gets on well with other dogs but not sure with cats. Chases birds.
Angus has a beautiful non-shed coat that is easy to maintain. Angus is quite the smoocher, obedient and friendly. Angus seeks assurance when thunder is around.

Being 5 years old, Angus has lots of energy to expend and would benefit from daily walking and room to run around in a yard.

Angus is best suited to soft spoken but stern owners that can remain calm if he does anything wrong (which he hasn't yet at his current address) - just so he can learn and understand the ropes of his current living situation.

If you would like to meet Angus, please call his foster carer after 3pm Fri-Mon or anytime Tues-Thurs on the number below or send an e-mail. (preferred)

Angus has been in foster care since 12 December 2018, for 4 days
