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.

This image wiIl be shown on a listing when a dog has been adopted and gone on trial so please do not contact the rescuer as the sign will be removed if the dog becomes available again.

STEVIE


Male Miniature Fox Terrier

Aged approx. 5 years

Small size

Rescued by  Tania
 


Stevie is drop dead gorgeous both in looks and nature! He is a happy and gentle pint sized boy weighing in around 5kg that adores cuddles and pats and will push his way in under your hand for them so be prepared for many licks as thanks. Stevie can be a little nervous when exposed to new places and experiences and, as such, does need some ongoing reassurance of his safety and security. He loves to run and play and will collect toys and treats (he loves meaty bones to chew on) and enjoy them in his own space. Stevie does very happily go up to greet strangers and other dogs in the street if they are known to his foster carer and loves his walks with a passion so is always downcast when it's time to go through the gate at the end of walk time. Despite pulling a little bit, basically he is pretty good on the lead and his enjoyment is so infectious it is very easy to overlook this. Stevie mastered the dog door very quickly and sleeps soundly on (and in!) his foster carer's bed. He must have the company of another small, gentle doggy companion in his new home and owners who have a good amount of time for him. Kids under 6 or 7 years old would not suit Stevie as he doesn't like lots of noise and chaos in the home. Stevie would best suit an owner who works either part time, from home or who is recently retired. His coat will shed but is very low maintenance so just needs a bath and a brush. Stevie is a great little fellow that is full of love and playfulness and he will make his new family very happy.   

 

Stevie comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and on monthly heartworm prevention for $450. He is NOT available for adoption outside NSW (except ACT). Please click HERE if you would like more information on Stevie.

JACK

Rescued by Denise

 

- has tiny button eyes, a little pink nose, white fluffy coat and a tiny frame

- not a dog that will sit on the couch and cuddle up as he is very different to most dogs

- needs a special home but is quite quirky and a bit odd but everyone who meets Jack adores him as he is a funny little character

- desperately wants to be loved but needs encouragement as he doesn't like being touched with your hand but will play with you as long as you want provided you use your foot

- needs to be with someone who is home full time and who can focus their attention on him

- likes other dogs of all sizes but would be fine as an only dog in the home as he doesn't need canine company but could also live with a gentle, low energy companion

- fine with both men and women, great in the car, fully house trained using a doggy door and sleeps happily in his bed all night

- rarely barks unless his dinner is late when he'll let you know to hurry it up

- hasn't been tested with cats and finds noisy children a bit scary
