Dogs for adoption

Meatball

English Staffordshire x

Meatball is a friendly, confident boy, with a big head and a big heart! He has lots of energy and loves to jump, run and play so he will need an experienced owner who has the time to exercise him daily. Meatball would be best suited to a home with secure fencing and without children, because he needs to develop his manners with jumping. As with most staffys, he’d love nothing more than lots of affection, and will make someone a great new best mate!

Charlie

Labrador x

Charlie is a medium sized dog that is full of energy and affection! He is still a pup and requires someone who is going to provide him with training and mental stimulation, to develop his manners and burn off all that puppy energy. He responds well to treat training and can focus quickly. He would love someone to take him on walks and adventures, and would be the perfect tramping companion!

Nelly

Aussie Cattle dog x Staffordshire

Nelly is an active girl who loves to play and have a cuddle. She would love to find a home where she will receive plenty of exercise and attention – a lifestyle block might be a great option for her! She is a social girl and does enjoy having another dog around, and would be best suited with a confident and friendly dog who can show her the ropes and develop her manners. If you’re looking for a pal to take for a run, and then home for a cuddle on the couch, Nelly is the girl for you!

Peanut

Labrador x, Male

Peanut is an extremely friendly boy who loves the company of people and is full of affection. Unlike many of the dogs he would prefer a pat and cuddle over treats! Peanut is still young and energetic so he will require daily exercise, training and mental stimulation such as toys and long lasting treats. He would be best suited to a home where he won’t be home by himself for long periods of time. He is a very loving boy and can’t wait to have someone to share his love with!  

Sammy

New Zealand Huntaway x, Male

Sammy is a very good natured boy who is patiently waiting for his forever home. He would love to be in a home where he gets daily walks, or even better, on a big lifestyle block where he can run around! Sammy would make a great addition to the family and a wonderful companion.

Bear

Bullmastiff x Boxer, Male

Bear is a friendly boy with a big smile and lots of playful energy! He’d love to go for daily walks or runs. He’s only young so has many adventures ahead of him with his new mate!

Dobby

Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog x Whippet

We’re unsure exactly what breed Dobby is but he’s a medium sized dog who makes up for his lack of tail with some extra-long ears! He loves attention from people and would be best in a home where he won’t be left for long periods of time by himself. Come in and meet this lovely boy if you’re looking for a new best friend.

Lilly

Catahoula Leopard Dog, Female

Lilly is just a few months old so has a lot of puppy energy and loves being around people. She will need to go to a home with someone who has the time for a new puppy and the training that would be required. We would like her to go to a home with someone who can enrol her in puppy classes so she has the best chance at becoming a well-mannered adult dog. She may also benefit from going to a home with a friendly and patient older dog who can help teach her the ropes.

Luna

Mastiff x Husky, Female

Luna is only 7 months old and came in with her littermate Nova. They would really love to go to a home together, but can also be adopted separately. Given her young age, she will need an experienced owner or someone who has the time to provide training. She would love to go for daily walks and adventures to burn off some of that puppy energy.

Nova

Mastiff x Husky, Female

Nova is only 7 months old and came in with her littermate Luna. They would really love to go to a home together, but can also be adopted separately. Given her young age, she will need an experienced owner or someone who has the time to provide training. She would love to go for daily walks and adventures to burn off some of that puppy energy.
