Scooby

Scooby

Kelpie - male - 4 years and 2 months

Scooby is a healthy young boy who is turning 4 this year. He is great with all people, and loves playing with kids, but he does jump up a bit so could knock over small ones, but he has never even tried to bite or growl. He gets along well with other animals and has lived with a dog whilst growing up. Currently Scooby lives outside and loves running round the yard and jumping up to see over the fence, so he will need a good fence to keep him in but when he is out and on walks he is lovely, patient and calm. Scooby just can't get enough of water - he loves playing in the hose and the sprinkler - check out the pics!
Scooby is fully vaccinated and desexed, and living with his current owner until we can find him his forever home. To get to know a bit more about Scooby and get to meet him, please call Jo on 0401 900696.

Scooby has been in foster care since 03 June 2018, for 2 months

Missy

Missy

Pointer cross - female - 2 years and 1 month

Missy's current carer describes her as a gentle and quiet dog, who hasn't barked or caused a fuss when other dogs walk past the yard, even if their other dogs bark at the yard. She has not shown to be aggressive in any way, with people or dogs. She responds well to training with treats and rewards of “good girl” and a pat and is now sitting when asked. Missy seems like she wants to please. She has played with my other 2 dogs, one small and one older, and when the older dog got over the playing she left him alone. At night she hops into her bed and stays there quietly until you get up. She waits to go to the toilet until she is outside. She walks well on the lead but does pull a bit when other dogs approach but nothing that made it hard for the carer to handle her. Missy deserves to go to a loving home where she will be treated well.
She is currently desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and although is currently located in Bulli, she will soon be located in Revesby. Please contact Rod on 0418 239763 to learn a little bit more about this gentle girl.

Missy has been in foster care since 01 July 2018, for 1 month

Hello everyone, I am a 3 month old mastiff cross puppy recently rescued from Dubbo pound. I am Super Friendly, great with other dogs and cats and I love kittens. I would like to know how to use the boudoir properly so the other dogs in the household are teaching me that... I haven't been desexed yet, however if you'd like to meet me in the meantime, my foster carer Rod can make the arrangements. Bye for now, love Cash..

Shi-Loh

Shi-Loh

Staffy x - female - 6 months and 3 weeks

Hi, I'm Shi-Loh (pronounced Shy Low). I arrived from a country pound on 25/07/18 and am currently residing in Sutherland, soon to be moving to Eastwood. I am a medium-sized 17 kg pup, and well behaved, toilet and doggy door trained. I'm super friendly with humans and other dogs, I don't pull on the leash and am very mature for my age. I'm currently sharing the house with two older dogs, a 10 year old and a 14 1/2 year old. We get along well and share cushions during the day. The pound said they couldn't fault me and my foster mum agrees. She would love to keep me but you know, 3's a crowd. I am independent and loving and can 'sit' on command. I would love to find my furever home soon. I'm desexed and immunised and ready to go home. I would love to meet and greet you, so if you like the look and sound of me, please contact Fiona at Sutherland or Jo at Eastwood (from 10 August)

Shi-Loh has been in foster care since 26 July 2018, for 3 weeks
