*Safe with AWDRI – Just into care*
Hello there, my name is Possum! I’m an outgoing, energetic boy who wants to be friends with everyone. I get along with all dogs. One of my favourite things to do is romp around at the dog park with all my friends. I love playing fetch and can catch balls straight out of the air!
I haven’t had much training before but in just the short time my foster mum has had me I’ve learnt to sit, wait for my food and to come inside only when asked. My ‘stay’ and ‘come’ are coming along nicely as well so my foster mum says I’m a very clever boy and not just a pretty face!
I’m very good with kids, they’re lots of fun to play with! I’m also learning about cats – I’m very interested in them but I know I’m not to chase them. Continue reading
Jax is a very boisterous young boy that is at his happiest when he has his family around or he is eating. He loves having a dog friend but we are sure that he will be happy in his new home with or without a four legged friend.
Jax has the basic training; he sleeps in the laundry, is toilet trained, sits, drops and stays (most of the time) but will need ongoing training. He is a protective dog (barking/stance) but as soon as he gets to know the regulars to his new home he will be fine.
Jax wants to play and follow you everywhere but he also loves to lay in his bed of an evening in the living room with the family before bedtime in the laundry. Jax will make a fantastic family dog.
Introducing Bran (affectionately known as Bear by his foster mum as he is such a cuddly boy). Not only is Bran extremely handsome he is also super intelligent and has learnt a lot in his short time in care. He will sit, stay, shake, retrieve balls, take food and treats very gently from your hand and will wait his turn patiently for food. He learnt to use the dog door quickly and seems to have mastered toilet training now. He loves to go in the car and travels well. He is good on the lead but can get a bit strong with excitement when he sees other dogs as he likes to introduce himself to everyone. He has great agility and would suit an active home where he could put his agility and intelligence to good use. He also loves his down time chilling on the couch and in front of the fire.
Rookie is a dog of contrasts. He loves to run and play and run some more and he enjoys having the company of another dog. He loves to bark and chase birds but leaves our free ranging galah alone. Together, with a canine friend he would be an awesome help in keeping pests out of a vineyard. The big contrast is he also enjoys the houndish pastime of lounging and getting as many cuddles as possible.
Rookie has very good recall, especially when whistled, but due to being a sight hound mix, the urge to pursue things like sheep and kangaroos can test his resolve. He has quite good manners and sits, high fives and knows “go to bed” he is good on lead and would sit on your knee (and has) if he could, such is his affectionate nature.
The first time Ebony was free to run and roam, to have the sun on her face was a mere few short months ago…..
Spending the first few weeks shaking in the corner of the stables to growing daily in confidence to roam around and play with her doggy foster brothers to even sleeping inside in her corner and actually going for a full walk on the lead and traveling beautifully in the car!
