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.

Male Purebred Maltese

Aged approx 3 years

Small size

Scruffy was surrendered to the Pound due to his owner suffering a severe medical event. Hes been well socialised with people and other doggies and is ideally suited to active, outdoors owners who are looking for a companion for their existing small female dog. Scruffy has been an inside dog and behaves himself very well, He loves to ride in the car and then head out to explore the big, wide world with his family. Scruffy's coat is the full grooming type so trips to the Dog Beauty Parlour a few times each year throughout his 12-15 year life span will be necessary.

Scruffy comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, on heartworm prevention and with local council lifetime registration included for an adoption fee of $490. He is not available for adoption outside NSW. Please email 
if you would like more information about Scruffy.

PAWS dogs are rehomed on two weeks trial to ensure that both the person adopting them and the rescuer are satisfied that the pet is happy and adapting well to their new home and this can be extended on request.
