Great Dane X - female - 5 months and 2 weeks

Rosie is a stunning 11-week old Great Dane cross puppy who is just a bundle of love! She has settled so very well into her current foster home, and can't get enough cuddles. She is currently living with many other foster dogs and gets along with all of them no problems!

Rosie will grow into a very large girl, she already has the feet to show she is very to grow into! Rosie will be vaccinated and microchipped soon, but will be desexed in a few months and then will be ready for her new home!

Contact Rod, her carer, to learn more about beautiful Rosie!

Please note that Rosie is not available for adoption for several weeks.

Rosie has been in foster care since 13 January 2020, for 2 months



English Staffy - male - 5 years and 1 month

Meet Mac, the most chilled out, loveable English staff you ever could meet! Mac was recently rescued from a pound, after he was surrendered there by his previous owners. His age is estimated to be around 5.

Sadly his previous life wasn't so amazing, where he was on a chain for a while, and has some dental issues as a result of trying to chew the chain off.

However, you truly wouldn't know it. Mac is so incredibly friendly and easy going. He has lived with a lot of dogs previously, and is now living with other foster dogs and they get along really well, so a home with dogs is not a problem for Mac at all, in fact probably a preference as he would love the company! He can't do enough for people too, and hasn't put a foot wrong in his current foster house.

Mac has a lump on his back that the vets recommend be removed, so that lump removal and his dental work has just been done, as you can see. He will then be available to go to his forever home in about 2 weeks.

In the meantime, call Rod his foster carer to meet this lovely gentleman, he can't wait to meet you.

Mac has been in foster care since 08 March 2020, for 4 weeks



Staffy X - male - 1 year and 1 month

Bear is an approximately 1 year old staffy cross who is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.

He is currently living with a young family with young children, and whilst he hasn't done anything wrong, the children are a bit intimidated by Bear's size and so it makes it hard to manage the environment. As a result, Bear is not getting the attention he desires, so would benefit from going to a home with older children, and where he has plenty of time and opportunity to interact with the family on a daily basis.

Bear is a large boy, but doesn't demonstrate his strength or size when interacting with people. He hasn't had much of a chance to interact with other dogs, so would probably be best suited to a home without other dogs, or would need to be given time and opportunity to introduce them in a very controlled environment.

Please contact Rod, who will give you more information and refer you to Bear's current owners.



Jack Russell - male - 11 years and 1 month

My name is Comet and I'm approximately 11 years old. I was surrendered into DCH care in November 2019. When I arrived my carer noticed I had pyoderma around my mouth. I am on medication and it is now currently healed. I am currently being weaned off my meds however If the pyoderma returns I may need to take the meds for the rest of my life to control it. It will most likely be April that I can move to my forever home.

I am looking for a forever home with someone who is home a lot. I love human company. I spend all day with my carer whilst she works at home and at night as well. I love to sit on the lounge next to her with my head on her lap. I am toilet trained in the house. I will stand at the door when I need to go out for a toilet break. I will sleep through the night and not bother you.

I am looking for a home that preferably has no other pets. I like to receive all the attention. I can be intolerant of other dogs though I currently live with a few resident dogs and they don't bother me. I chase cats so a cat free home is a must. I would most likely also want to chase other small pets as chasing these animals is part of my breed. I would be most suited to a quiet home. I can be a little unsettled by strangers in my home.

I love my daily walks. I am still very active. I have been diagnosed with a heart murmur. My murmur is non clinical and so at present it doesn’t affect my quality of life.

If you feel your home may be suitable for me please contact my foster carer and provide some details around your home environment. If we sound like a match then we can arrange a meet and greet. I am located at Revesby.

I am desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and have been flea and worm treated.

Comet has been in foster care since 24 March 2020, for 1 weeks



German Shepherd x husky - female - 2 years and 5 months

Autumn is a complete cutie, she loves all people. She loves belly rubs and walks. She is an extremely smart and active dog. She is completely toilet trained, doggy door would be helpful but leaving the door open will be just as good. She knows how to sit, drop and fetch. She is in the process of learning to "leave it". She also walks well on a lead, and she knows how to heel she just needs to have more practice with it. She is very quiet, very seldom does she bark. However, when out for walks you must be careful with other dogs and she is still uncertain about dogs so she gets very anxious.

She belonged to my partner's parents and they no longer wanted her (due to no fault of her own) so we agreed to take her in while we find a good home for her. We need to urgently re-home her as we are renters.

Desexed - Yes on the 12/11/2019
Vaccinated - yes. Due again 18/11/20
Medical Issues - None
Behaviour - Still in training for jumping (out of excitement). She is not good with other animals at the moment, she still needs more training, would suit an only dog environment.

Is she ok with Kids? - Yes but only older kids as she can get too excited around younger children

Is she ok with other animals? - No

Is she house trained? - Yes
