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!

Sally is a typical “Merry Cocker Spaniel” who is very affectionate and cuddly with her people once she gets to know them. Being an inside dog, Sally is house trained and will happily test out all your sofas, beds or wherever you’re sitting as she loves to be with you, lapping up all the love you can offer. She’s had some bad experiences with other dogs and is understandably anxious so a home where she can be the only princess is essential. Sally also shows signs of separation anxiety so her perfect people would be home often and allow her to be part of the family. She is an active, intelligent, devoted girl who just wants to be loved – could you provide her with the suitable, loving, forever home she craves?

Wish upon a star that I might found my own home
Wishbone came to us from a terrible hoarding situation where she was with dozens of dog on a property all starving and in bad shape. After many months of care and training she has come out of her shell and loves loves loves people, but not other dogs. She spend so much of her young life, fighting for her food, getting beat up,  that she finds it hard to make friends with other dogs, so she is best to be only pet, but that doesnt change the fact that she is an awesome happy affectionate loving girl.  She has a shiny glossy coat and cute little face and many quirks that make her a great dog to have around.
Wishie loves to be inside and near her people, she is low maintenance as she really does ant like going for walks, she's a true homebody. She will sit in your lap, gaze into your eyes and needs you touching her all the time. She is fine to be left inside during the day. So if you are a homebody and would love a cuddle-bunny to love then Wishie is your girl.
She always makes us smile with her goofiness.
***
A message from Wishbones carer"
Wishbone has many funny quirks and perks. She hates mirrors, she hates having a bath. But after a bath she zooms around and around and jumps and rolls, its hysterical. Wishbone loves treats and will pull the funniest faces as if she is trying to make you laugh.
Wishbone loves people and will cuddle right into your lap and roll upside down and stare at your and smile.

Chicky is such a pretty girl. She has the sweetest face and most gorgeous eyes. She loves people and cuddles and pats and kisses. She also loves excerise and running and playing. She like other dogs but was never socialised properly as a youngster so she is too excited and overstimulated when she sees them, often resulting in disaster and a blow up. This is a shame because she'd love doggy friends but she is just too big and excitable. When given time she is great, she loves her neighbour dog and they spend their days hanging out together, each on their side of the fence, kissing and chatting and snoozing, its adorable . She also loves kids but is very jumpy, in the most loveable way, so only older kids, over 12 would suit.....poor Chicky, her previous people really let her down. But we believe that with the right person guiding her, also her maturing, that she will develop into a beautiful loving girl, given time and patience.
Chicky loves to play ball, loves chewie snacks, will do anything for a yummy treat and will happily sit in your lap if you let her.
How can this beautiful girl still be looking for a home?

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.

Starlight is a snuggly, cuddly, happy, playful girl who will keep you smiling all day long. She is learning lots of new things like walking on lead and running around in the water at the beach and she is loving it!! She thinks she is a lap dog and plans on proving it to you time and time again. She is well socialised and just... happy! She will need someone who lets her sleep inside and continues her training. Starlight will grow into a big dog (she is already enormous!) and her new family need to be prepared for that. She is currently living with two other dogs who she adores and has been around kids and lots of other dogs with no troubles. Ongoing socialization and training is required for her to grow into the gentle and loving family dog she so desperately wants to be. She is sooooo gentle and just wants to love you all the time. She will need someone prepared to commit to the next 10-15 years and not someone interested in her as a puppy but a life long friend.
She would love puppy school, obedience classes and learning new things, she’s ready for it!

atch and Mindy are the sweetest pair. Patch was adopted at 10 months, and Mindy joined him at 18 months through BFR. They have been very loved by their family but their situation and yard means they are not getting the walks and time they deserve.
Patch is a left-pawed goofball and loyal companion. His hair gets long, then when it’s clipped he acts like a puppy again. Mindy is very sweet and they will compete for your cuddles. They like wrestling like baby lion cubs.
Mindy gets anxious during storms so requires a 6-foot fence (or to be inside). Patch’s kryptonite is people swimming in pools – he just wants to rescue you so he needs a quiet place to retreat unless you mind him herding you as you swim.
They are very gentle with little kids, once even letting their baby human share their food with no animosity! (Oops.)
They are happy sleeping inside or outside in their crates. They love long walks in sunshine or rain. Pina coladas untested but they do a bit of doggy yoga.
They didn’t get formal training but when they go to BBQs or the beach everyone comments how well behaved they are. They had a clean bill of health from their vet on 24/10/17 and have had no health issues. Please fill part 2 of their lives with love and long walks.

Beautiful big and soft. Also timid and shy and affectionate.
Meet Pip, the loveliest German Shepherd I have ever met. This girl has not been treated well. She has been chained all her life, hosed and attacked by another dog. The place where she lived previously ( no bed, no love) wanted to shoot her to kill her. Pip lived on the chain in the one spot her whole life, eating, pooing and weeing, and then getting hosed down. So she came to us.
All of her Vet work is complete, she will need a kind and patient person, a gentle dog companion would be ok, but she would love to be the only dog and get all the love, and a person who can give lots of TLC.
Please note she hasn’t a mean bone in her body, but very timid if men and hoses.
Please add everything into your application, we can’t call everyone so please dont rely on giving us more information later.

Sweet and snuggly Lilly.

Lilly is a typical little staffy. She is tiny and nuggety and just full to the top with love. Lilly wants to be on your lap and in your bed. She is happiest when you are cuddled up with her or pottering around the house. This tiny little staffy is great with children of all ages and is so, so gentle. She loves other dogs and we think she would be happiest in a home with a calm male dog to be her buddy.
Lilly would suit someone home a lot, like an active young retired couple or a family with seniors adults at home. She just loves people and will try to escape when left alone, so a secure yard, or under the house, but preferably a human around a lot. Sh is extremely well behaved around kids, amazingly calm and happy when you are home, nothing bothers her, she will just stare at you with love in her yes all day long.

Lilly is a super easy pup to have around, she doesn't need lots of walks and doesn't dig holes or eat your shoes. She just wants people in her life and lots and lots and lots of cuddles! If you have the love to give little Lilly, please apply today.

Jerry

Jerry is a middle aged dog with lots of character and love. He is an active Jack Russell and is very protective of his yard and home. He will gladly dig under your fence and explore the neighbourhood when given the chance. He is such a loveable character and would love an active home who wouldn’t mind walking him. He is healthy and happy, completely toilet trained and is currently an outside/inside dog. Although he is active he loves a good nap too. He gets on well with the Spoodles he has grown up with, but unfortunately hasnt been too great with other dogs, so he cannot go to a home with other dogs or cats. He unfortunately cannot be rehomed with any children, he really just prefers a quiet home with adults and although teenagers.

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.

Hi, I’m Bentley and I’m a purebred English Springer Spaniel. I’m a happy, playful guy who just loves to entertain either myself with my toys or my family.  I love walks and running around in the water at the beach. I’m very well behaved and am fully house trained although I’m not very tolerant of cats and I can't be around pocket pets. I love going in the car and will sit quietly in the back because I know not to bounce around. I wait when my food is put down until I’m told ‘ok’ and it’s time to eat. I’m great when little people come to visit because they have as much energy as me!

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.
