Magic Mike
Mickey is just the best boy, so much fun and so full of love. He just loves company, he gets along with all dogs, and is just happy to hang out with you all day. He is a wonderful companion. Magic Mike is perfect on the lead and great in the car, he is house trained andloves to sleep on the couch or beside you. We haven't seen him with cats, so we'd say no. Someone home a lot or very secure fences, he is a cheeky boy who loves to get out and find company.
Mickey loves to play ball, and loves the dog park. He thinks the beach is an amazing lace to sniff, he has a quirky funny face and gentle eyes. He is great with kids and basically a big goof all.  He is so super smart and ready for action. Magic Mike would make a great family pet.. Just be ready to commit to him for life, he deserves and he is worth it!

Quinny is an adorable little girl, a bit shy but slowly coming out of her shell. She loves her big brother at her foster home and loves to snuggle with him. She would excel with more obedience and socialisation classes, she loves to please and has the sweetest wiggle bum when she is happy. Quinn has lovely soft eyes and the light up when her human is close by, she needs someone who can spend time with her and train her more, she loves people and isn't the type of dog to live in the back yard as lone, she needs people, she needs to be inside, sleep inside and know that her human is committed to her for her life, even if she chews something, she needs to know she is forgiven and loved and that you are patient and kind towards her. Her life matters to us, not just now but for the next 15 years plus, even when she has a grey muzzle, she is still a precious life. Quinn deserves that much. Please tell us everything about you and your plans with Quinn.

Simon is a funny chunky loveable little guy. He is super sweet and loves company and is great with kids and cats but just doesn’t like his fellow k9s. That’s ok, he’s such great company and has such an awesome personality , he does fine all on his own. He has a big personality and loves it when you speak to him, he likes to be part of the family, sleep inside and be around his humans. He just ignores cats, which is awesome.

Doobie is a 9 month old Doberman Cross, super sweet and loving. He is great with kids, cats and all dogs including small ones. Just an alll round sweet boy. He is about 35 kg and might get a little heavier. He is untrained on the lead and takes about 10 minutes to settle into a nice walk, he is a big strong boy but desperate to please and so sweet and loving. We believe his first home had 9 kids and it was too much for the single parent, but to us, that just means he is well tested around kids.He lived around chickens and horses and cats. e just needs someone to show him the finer points of obedience, and then he will be perfect.

Darling little Fudge is looking for a safe, loving retirement home. He has limited vision and hearing but with the help of his own Halo, he’s quick to map out his house and will be trotting around before you know it. Fudgie loves, loves, loves food and will do a happy dance for his breakfast, dinner and treats. He feels so much better now he’s had his rotten teeth removed and copes well with a soft diet. This sweet old man also loves snuggles, belly rubs and a soft bed to sleep in. Fudge would be fine as an only dog and is indifferent to other dogs, but as he is so tiny, he’s suited to other older, gentle dogs. Fudge is partly toilet trained but it will take a while in a new home so be prepared for accidents inside. His ideal home environment would be a house with washable surfaces, no steps and where the furniture is not moved around. We are looking for a very special person to love Fudgie as he deserves – can you be that person?

Pixie us a pocket rocket extraordinaire! She jumps, she flits, she zooms, she's everywhere, but always with a smile on her face. Pixie just couldn't stop smiling the day we busted her out of the shelter and she hasnt stopped smiling since. To her every day alive is a blessing, and uses that day to send love and kisses to everyone. She loves kids but might be too active for small ones, she loves dogs, but make sure they are up for a play, a boyfriend would be ideal. Pixie just loves to love. She loves food, she love humans, she loves the car, the park, a treat, a scratch, a walk, she loves life. She is a petit little girl, smaller that her photos would suggest. She is just a lovely sweet girl ready for a home of her own.

Mr Tubbs is an awesome big fellow with tons of love to give. He LOVES LOVES LOVES chasing the ball and doesnt mind a swim, he's good in the car and pretty good on the lead. But a ball is his all time favourite thing. He has been scared by humans before, there was someone who wasn't very nice to him and this has made him wary of strangers, but as long as he has a nice quiet home, he is happy, loving and loyal. Tubbs is a wonderful companion and will provide great security to those who get scared at night, he is a true protector of the home, a hero without a cape.
All of Tubbs brothers and sisters were rescued and rehomed by us, they all looked like short haired Border Collies, but Tubbs got the Staffy/Lab type face, is this why no one wants him? Its not fair that all of his cuter siblings to home but he didn't. This makes us sad. He's tried for so long but no one gives him at look in. Please don't flick past this gorgeous boy, give him a chance.

Maxi is a big goofball who loves to play fetch and tug-of-war. He is like a big puppy.
Maxi has spent his whole life outside with little attention and therefore has little manners. However he is still a loveable guy. He gets very over excited to see people and tends to jump all over them, but this will settle as he gets the time and attention he needs, he deserves the right person or family, he is a great boy. He needs an owner who understands his breed and who is willing to invest time in Maxi to train him, in return you will find an awesome loyal sweet companion, just desperate to please.
Maxi loves to be with people. If let inside he is initially excited (understandably) but soon settles and just lays at your feet. Please give him a chance.

SISTER ACT: A PURFECT PAIR – to be rehomed together

It may not look like it, but these two are sisters, AND best friends.  They come as a pair, and we’re not even thinking of separating them. 

Jersey is a BEAUTIFUL GIRL.  She’s a StaffyXShar-pei cross, and is a glorious dark chocolate brown colour.  She’s exceptionally well behaved – super clean and toilet trained.   She always comes when you call her.  (if she jumps up on the couch or the bed and we ask her to hop off, she does it straight away) She knows basic commands, and is obviously very smart.  She is super gentle with her tiny companion Bindi, who is smaller than a cat!  Jersey’s coat is very shiny and her tail never stops wagging.  She does the typical staff lay ‘with her back legs stretched out’ and is happy to lay around or just follow us around the house.  She’s very comfortable being in the house (it’s been raining since we got her) but she’s been pottering around the garden today with her little friend.  She was good for her bath (with the hose outside) and didn’t make a fuss, although would have been quite happy not to have one.  She got the Staffy ‘cuddle bunny’ gene – she’s very affectionate. She’s got the Sharpei snoring gene - but it’s not too loud.   She’s obviously very relaxed and falls asleep easily. I can’t say enough about how lovely this girl is.
She is very frightened of storms and will be very agitated and try to escape.  I’ve only ever owned one dog that didn’t behave this way in storms, so it’s normal, and will pass when the storm does.  
Don’t be put off by the sharpei bit, because this girl is all good, and she’d be an epic fail at Sharpei school - she’s very, very gentle and has the kindest eyes. This girl is 100% good, and not a whiff of nasty in sight.  I’ve got a senior boy, a 13 year old doxie, who fancies himself as ‘top dog’,  and she’s good with him, and they happily share a couch together.
Jersey is a BEAUTIFUL FAMILY DOG.
 

Bindi is a teeny tiny FoxieXChihuahua cross, and is a lively, loving, gorgeous, cute as a button, pretty little jumping bean.  She’s equally at home climbing on you for kisses and snoozing on your lap, or curled up next to her big sister, Jersey.  She’s exceptionally pretty, with a the colouring of a little mini-foxie, dark face and a pure white body, with the softest fur.  Her tail wags a million times an hour.  She’s VERY affectionate, and kissing is her favourite thing.  She’s just the sweetest little dog.

JERSEY and BINDI must be rehomed together, and snaps to the lucky family that snaps these two angels up.

Jack's currently with a foster family (5th owners!!) after being abandoned in the bush by his last owners. It took a week to lure him out. He loves humans and needs a proper owner who'll spend time with him, not to correct behavior but because it brings out his personality massively. He's low maintenance, doesn't whinge for attention/become a nuisance if you ignore him. He's extremely relaxed and pretty independent, some days he'll relax by himself, others he'd rather be with someone. Either way if you ask him to hang out with you he loves it.
He's great with kids, dogs, cats, livestock and doesn't harm chooks but will chase/herd them for fun. He doesn't like storms and is just as happy inside as out. He's used to space and needs a decent yard because he does love having a dig, and when the neighborhood dogs go off he will bark with them.
Overall he's awesome, and would be a great companion for the right person/family.

Claire, what a funny name for a dog, but thats her name and she's fine with it, so we are too. Claire is super sweet and calm, just a real lay about. She's great with dogs and kids but not those pesky cats, they need to "move along"!
Claire is happy to sleep all day and wait for her daily walk. She is great on the lead and just loves a walk, she's not overly active and does need to lose some weight, but she just loves her sniffing and strolling along and saying hi to everyone she meets. She is just a lovely companion and friend. Claire doesnt like storms, she just needs to be inside, and she's drool a little, but thats it. Just keep her safe and calm and she soon settles.
The minute she got to her carers house, she walked in, lay down and went to sleep, like she has lived there forever, she is so easy to please, very easy to love and very deserving of a wonderful home.

Stunning Asha is a 2 year old staffy/ridgeback cross who was rescued at 3 months old. She had been through terrible abuse and came to her family very frightened, but with lots of love and training she has come a very long way. Asha is a very loving and cuddly pooch who loves nothing more than snoozing on her doggy bed on the living room floor. She's an inside/outside dog who really loves hanging out with her humans.

Asha is very loving, loyal and affectionate once you gain her trust. She responds to a gentle approach as sometimes loud, fast and noisy things can frighten her. She is fully house-trained and obeys all basic commands. She will do ANYTHING for food and loves training with treats. She is desexed and fully up to date with all vaccinations and health checks.

Because of her sad past, Asha is very anxious around children as little people can make her feel threatened. For this reason Asha will need to go to a no-children home. Ideally Asha's new owner will be experienced with dogs and know how to handle a dog with anxiety. She is generally good with other dogs but requires supervised introductions. Noisy, busy doggy parks and beaches can be a bit much for sweet Asha, so walks on lead are her preferred adventure. She even loves running on her treadmill and jumps on it every day!
With the right care and attention, Asha will be someone's dream pooch. She will need lots of cuddles (she's velvety soft!) and continued support for her anxiety issues. The reward will be a gorgeous, devoted girl who wants nothing more than to please her owners.
