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!

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.

What can we say about Jacky

Jacky is BALL OBSESSED!

Jacky will play ball a llllllll day long, she LOVES IT. And she is so good at it. For an old Shelia she is fun and active and has the funniest big nose. Which doesnt make her look pretty at all, in fact she looks like a boy, which makes her even more loveable and appealing. There is something really amazing about this old girl and everyone who meets her just falls in love with her, its hard to explain.
Jacky has some arthritis but don't tell her that, she won't believe it and neither would you once you meet her. The only way to stop her is to hide the balls for a while. But eventually you realise that you cant take away her number one love for too long.
Jacky currently lives with a giant boy called Gary and they get along well, she is fine with all dogs, all people and maybe a cat, but we don't know if she has ever met one. When she hasnt got a ball then she is happy to lie in the sun and relax.
Everyone that meets her loves her, age is just a number, and Jacky is very beautiful soul.

Ariel is the sweetest most gentle girl. She is very large and all she wants is cuddles. She was left behind after her mum had littler after litter, so she loves puppies, she is used to small dogs and is very sweet and motherly to them. She didn't get a lot of socialisation is her early life, so everything is new to her, she needs time to adjust and a slowly slowly approach, but what an adorable girl. Everyone who meets her loves her, all the vet staff wanted her to stay there, and anyone who has spent time with her gets her lovely nature. We can see her with a special needs child or adult, she has a calm way about her, when she recognises someone needs a snuggle.She is an inside outside dog, and needs to be with people and dogs, she wouldn't cope being alone for long periods, it would break her heart.

Jimi Hendrix is a super star in his own right. He is an adorable loving and funny guy with great social skills and a happy disposition. He has many doggie friends and children to play with and interact. He will need someone who lets him sleep inside and continues his training. He will need someone with a lot of time and not someone interested in him as a puppy but a life long friend. He will be here for another 15 - 20 years and he needs someone prepared for that.
He would love puppy school, obedience classes and learning new things, he ready for it!

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!

Rose is a happy young lady. When she gets excited she will lope around with a big grin on her face, and when she is calm she is either asleep on top of you or asleep right next to you (whichever you will allow). She will need someone who lets her sleep inside and continues her training. Rose will grow into a big dog (she is already enormous!) and her new family need to be prepared for that.

Well what can we say about Chester. He is as cute as a button, sweet as pie and quite a handful. He loves to please you and wants to be a good boy but he first family let him down as far as training goes. So he's starting from scratch and loving it.  We think a family without little kids because he will require all of your attention and focus. chester is great with dogs but can be a little intimidated, so slowly slowly for him. He's good with kids but we think he was grabbed and pulled before so he can be a little jumpy, so older kids are better suited.
He is quite sparse for fur on his rear end, but its not a skin issue, the vet suggested he is naturally like that and might be crossed with Chines Crested.
Chester is just a happy happy sweet kid who would benefit from obedience school and a dog savvy person. Please don't apply just because he is cute, he requires someone interested in his well being and can provide for him forever.

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.
