staffy X - male - 2 years and 4 months

What a seriously gorgeous and handsome boy Charlie is. Originally owned by a couple, then placed into a pound after being shuffled through a few different homes. Finally he has found himself in the company of friends and he loves it.
Charlie's nature is very sweet and evenly tempered. He is gently playful given he really is only a young boy and has lots to experience. He understands simple commands and is very friendly and eager to please. Sleeps in at night on his bed and is fully toilet trained, not fussy with his food or over needy. What we must state clearly is that Charlie loves company, he has to have company, his just that type of personality. At the moment he is in care with both cats and dogs and enjoys them both. From what we can see he seems to not be a reactive type of dog either. He is a strong boy though. He walks well on a lead and needs his daily exercise. We feel Charlie would be suited to a family with another dog of similar disposition or a stay home parent or indvidual. Charlie is great with children also, even though this is the case, supervision is always recommend when with a dog of Charlie's size.
If you wish to meet Charlie he is in care at Cabarita NSW.

Charlie has been in foster care since 22 February 2018, for 4 months



Kelpie Cross - female - 3 months and 4 weeks

Hi I'm Tina, and a natural model! Can you see the photos of me loving my bush walks?? That's also the latest one of me with the pink collar, watching over all my new friends. I was transported from a Country pound along with 3 siblings. I am really good with both other dogs and super curious of kittens, and I'm currently living with two cats. I was born about the end of February which makes me approximately 12 weeks old. I'm pure black, full of energy and super eager to please when you're training me!
I have been microchipped and wormed and have had the first of three monthly vaccinations and I'm desexed - in other words I'm all ready to be all yours! I'm currently located in Eastwood, and you can contact my carer Jo on 0401 900696.
I'd love to meet you soon so I can settle into my forever home!

Tina has been in foster care since 25 April 2018, for 1 month



Kelpie - male - 4 years

Scooby is a healthy young boy who is turning 4 this year. He is great with all people, and loves playing with kids, but he does jump up a bit so could knock over small ones, but he has never even tried to bite or growl. He gets along well with other animals and has lived with a dog whilst growing up. Currently Scooby lives outside and loves running round the yard and jumping up to see over the fence, so he will need a good fence to keep him in but when he is out and on walks he is lovely, patient and calm. Scooby just can't get enough of water - he loves playing in the hose and the sprinkler - check out the pics!
Scooby is fully vaccinated and desexed, and living with his current owner until we can find him his forever home. To get to know a bit more about Scooby and get to meet him, please call Rod on 0418239763.



Jack Russell cross Cattle - female - 8 months

Hi Everyone,

I'm Lady, or practicing to be one! I arrived at my foster home in Sutherland after a two day journey from a Country pound. When my carer picked me up I was so happy I wiggled and licked her so much that she had to sit in the back seat of the car for another short journey. On the way home, we walked the last 2 blocks back to her place and met some of the neighbours. A little boy came running out and put his arms around me. He said he loved me. Wow, how good is that? So that's what they call Love at First Sight! I met my step sisters (Maybe I should have been called Cinderella!) who are much older than me, so they don't have the energy to play with me, so I need to be walked daily. I'm learning commands and don't pull on the lead. I love to sit beside you and I love my food and treats. I'm not yet toilet trained but I learnt how to use the doggy door in about 1 minute flat. I have pink skin around my right eye so it will need protection from the sun. I've had the first of two C5 vaccinations and have been booked in to be desexed. I am a slender 9kgs. You can see that I travel well, am child friendly, love life and would love a life with you. Can you offer me a furever home? Feel free to contact my carer even if I haven't been desexed yet. I will wait for you. Just as a precaution, adult supervision should be arranged when Lady is around small children, in case they are unsteady on their feet.

Lady has been in foster care since 17 June 2018, for 6 days
