PAWS Dogs and Puppies in Foster Care
Last updated Tuesday September 18, 2018

Please click here and take a moment to read some important information before viewing our dogs available for adoption


These pets have been saved, thanks to their rescuer and the kindness of foster carers who are looking after them temporarily, but they are still looking for homes. Please note that descriptions of dogs as either purebred or a cross of particular breeds is given in good faith and is based on assessment of the dog's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age, breed or purebred status of any dogs listed.

There is a two week trial period if you decide you would like to adopt a dog. This is to ensure that everyone is happy with their new family member and also that the dog is happy in their new home.

Happy Chappie is a full, on positive young doggy even though he was surrendered to the Pound as his owner could not put the time in with him due to their illness. He has had to learn some basic training and the other dogs in his foster home have helped him in many ways re play bows, sit, lead walking, car trips etc. Chappie is now ready for his forever home and is best suited to one where there are active retirees and with a female dog as a companion when no one is home. His champagne coloured coat is the full grooming type so he will require regular trips to the Doggy Grooming Parlour for the remainder of his 12-15 year life span.

Chappie comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and with NSW Council lifetime registration for $460. He is NOT available for adoption outside NSW (except ACT). There is a two week trial period to ensure that everyone is happy with their new family member and also that the dog is happy in their new home. Please email Ronda if you would like more information on Chappie.
