Dalmation cross Bull Arab - female - 3 months and 4 weeks

Carly is a 12 week old female puppy who has been surrendered within a litter of 6 from a North Coast country pound. She is very friendly, and is currently living with 3 adult dogs, her brother and kittens. She gets along very well with the other dogs, and sleeps in the same room as the kittens and doesn't have any interest in them. Whilst Carly is currently not desexed, this will be done soon and then she will be ready to go to her new home! In the meantime, get in touch with her foster carer, Rod on 0418 239763 to organise to say hello!

Carly has been in foster care since 17 September 2018, for 1 month



Bull Arab x Dalmation - female - 4 months

Delilah is one of 6 x Bull Arab x Dalmation puppies that have been surrendered into care from Rural NSW. She is a lovely, brindle coloured girl, looking for a Forever home where she can be active, safe and loved.

Delilah will need to be taken on daily walks as she has great stamina and needs plenty of exercise so she doesn't get bored. As Delilah will be a big adult girl, she will also need her training continued, so that she grows into a responsible, obedient member of your family. She has already started lead training!

Delilah will be 1st vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and desexed, as part of the adoption fee.

If you are looking for a sweet, friendly puppy who gets on well with other dogs, and would like to meet Delilah or her litter mate, Sampson, please contact Nikki.

Delilah has been in foster care since 23 September 2018, for 4 weeks



Cattle x Kelpie - male - 3 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 - female - 4 years

Zeena has recently been rescued from a country pound and is in foster carer with 5 other dogs who she gets along with incredibly! She is a big girl but is very gentle with her carer and with the other dogs, and is also good on the lead.
Zeena is scared of thunderstorms, and can escape yards when she is left alone in a storm. As such, her new owners would have to make sure they prepare in the forecast of storms and make sure Zeena has somewhere safe to hide away for a little while.
She isn't yet desexed, but this will be happening in the next couple of weeks. Please call Rod if you would like to know a little more about Zeena, and say hello!

Zeena has been in foster care since 20 October 2018, for 2 days
