Dexter

Meet Dexter, I am a 14month old Cavoodle. When I came into care I hadn’t had the easiest of lives and was very shy and timid, but with lots of love and reassurance I have really come out of my shell. I had never slept inside a house and had always been an outside dog, but I quickly learnt that I loved being indoors with my humans and snuggling was my new favourite thing. I love to lay on the lounge with you at night to keep you warm. But my most favourite thing to do is sleep right beside you to keep you safe at night. My foster mum says how well I’m doing as I can now use a doggie door and love to come and go as I please. I’ve just learnt how to do zoomies and love to go outside and do them just before bed. I really don’t like to sleep alone I like to know you are close by, so make sure you have room in your bed for me. And I promise you will never have to go to the loo alone at night ever again as I will be right beside you. I have been in foster care with dogs and cats and I love them all, I’ve also lived with young children and they didn’t bother me either. I still get a little bit nervous when on a lead but with my human by my side I know everything will be ok. Car trips don’t bother me as long as I can see you. I would really prefer to have a fur sibling to play with if you’re busy as I’ve never been alone before. I have almost got the hang of toilet training but sometimes I just need reminding as I get so busy playing I forget until the last minute. My foster mum tells me I’m such a good boy and she is always telling me I’m beautiful and I love that it makes my tail wag that fast I think it’s going to fall off. If you think you have room in your bed and in your heart for me please fill in an application and send it to my foster mum. If we are lucky enough I may get to come and keep you warm this winter. Dexter is in foster care in Bolton Point, NSW. Adoption fee is $1000. He has been treated for fleas and worms, and is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Ziva

Ziva is a gentle and reserved 5-year-old female tabby cat. Like most cats, she is shy at first and may be hesitant to approach new people and surroundings, preferring to observe from a safe distance. However, with time and patience, Ziva gradually opens up and reveals her loving and affectionate personality.

Once she feels comfortable and secure you will see how devoted she is. She is an excellent listener and observer, with a keen intuition. She loves providing comfort and companionship and in return she will bring warmth and tranquility into your home. 

Ziva is a quiet and introspective soul who thrives on patience, understanding, and gentle companionship. She also enjoys playful moments and engaging in activities such as chasing after toys and exploring her environment, her playful antics are a joy to witness, revealing glimpses of the spirited soul that lies within. 

With a heart as tender and delicate as her beautiful coat she’s sure to become a beloved member of the family in no time.

Ziva has a tender soul and should be fine with children. She gets along fine with other cats, but she prefers to be on her own and keep to herself. It’s not know how she will interact with other dogs as she was a stray and she hasn’t met a dog whilst she has been in care.

MAVERICK enjoys playing with toys and his furry companions and shares his foster home with another puppy and medium sized dog. MAVERICK is a quick learner and is already using the doggy door with ease and sleeps through the night in his crate. An owner willing to commit to ongoing training with MAVERICK will ensure that he has the best start to life. MAVERICK is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a home environment. He is friendly with dogs. He shared his foster home with another puppy and medium sized dog as well as a cat and he isn’t too bothered by the cat. MAVERICK is also extremely friendly with people. MAVERICK will grow up to be a medium to large dog. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. It would be a big plus if you have a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate for MAVERICK. If you don’t have another dog to keep him company, then there needs to be someone in the household that doesn’t work full time until MAVERICK is older. MAVERICK needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep inside as part of his new family. He will be a wonderful and loyal family dog and is suitable for children over 5.

Amber

Xena

My name is Xena and I’m a three year old apricot Cavoodle. I am desexed, microchipped, up to date with my vaccinations and flea, tick and worm treatment. I had not spent a lot of time around humans before coming to my current foster home and so am still a little timid around loud noises. I really love my pats and snuggles and spending as much time as close as possible to my human and the other humans in the house. There is another dog at my current house and we get along fine and she’s been great company for me. There are also cats at my current house and I just tend to ignore them. I mostly go outside to the toilet but haven’t learnt to use a doggy door as there isn’t one at my house because the cats stay inside. I have learnt to walk on a lead and love going for walks with my human and the other dog. I’ve been to the markets and for walks near water and am happy to let people give me a pat if they ask nicely. I have learnt to sit and try very hard to stand still while you put my harness on. I know to sit when we come back from a walk for you to take my harness off. I haven’t spent much time before my current home just being a dog, so don’t quite understand why you throw the ball away from us but I do love to have zoomies around the yard and love to play bounce with you. I get very excited when you get home even if you’ve only been outside. I would benefit from someone who is home a lot of the time, not sure how I would go if I was left on my own for long periods. My perfect home would be: – where humans are home almost all of the time, at least initially. – where my forever family understand my needs and appreciate that I’ll take time to adjust. – where someone as time to commit to my training and provide lots of love and attention. – I’d be happy with the company of another friendly, playful, and non-aggressive dog and I’m okay with cats in the home as well – a relatively calm and stress-free home that is stable and permanent – a home where my humans are committed to maintaining my grooming – a home where I get at least one good outing and exercise session, plus regular doggy social time – a yard to have a little run that is 100% escape-proof for a little dog who is good at slipping through gaps and scurrying over small fence Xena is in foster care in Lake Macquarie, NSW. Xena’s adoption fee is $700 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Xena please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt For more information on Xena, please contact her foster carer on their email [email protected] You can see all of our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Badger

Badger is a 4 year old, black & white handsome sweet boy who just wants love. He has had a rough past and is a little shy at first, but once he feels comfortable and settles in, you will find that he just wants to be with you. He enjoys head scratches, sitting on the couch, follows you around like a shadow and any affection he can get.

Badger is a chilled out by. He is find around other cats, they don’t phase him at all. He isn’t a fan of children, so he would be best suited to a home without them, and if some are to come around, he would need a safe place to go to. Badge hasn’t met any dogs yet, so we are unsure how he would go with them. 

Badger came into foster care after experiencing a chemical burn to his face. We are happy to say that he has healed up really well, has now completed all his vet work and is ready to find his forever home where he will be loved every day.

He is a kind, gentle soul…if there was ever a good boy, he is it 🙂 Basil is a healthy puppy who has been raised in a home environment with 2 adults and has been introduced to children over 5. He has been well socialised with other puppies and adult dogs (small and large) and gets along well with them all.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give him the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection and exercise, and if this is given to Basil, he will reciprocate 10 x fold. It would be a big plus if you have a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate for Basil.

Basil gets along well with cats, but he does have a tendency to chase the kitties when he gets excited to see them, he is still learning to just give them kisses then leave them be. Basil needs to be welcome inside when people are home, Basil currently sleeps in a sunroom separate from the household, and has gotten used to this routine, but I’m sure he wouldn’t say no to a cuddle in your bed. Basil has a peaceful and soulful nature to him and would make a fantastic family dog, and is more suitable for children 6 years and older, but with the right dedication to training would be ok for children under 5. You will need good fencing with no small gaps. He can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire) as he likes to explore. Basil’s siblings Watson, Copper and Doug are also available for adoption.

Poppy

Poppy is a beautiful young cat who loves to be loved. She is excited to see her humans and always greets them with a meow and a head bop. She loves to cuddle up alongside you and will sit in your lap for a pat. Poppy would be best suited to a home as the only pet. She does not like the resident dog and cats at her foster home and has had to be kept separate from them as she will growl and attack. Her foster carers are working on this and we are making very small progress. Poppy has not been tested with young children however, due to her personality, she is best suited to a house with children over 7 years or just adults. Poppy must be kept indoors at all times, unless she has a secure outdoor enclosure to lay about in. Poppy had been living on the streets prior to coming into care, so she does tend to try and run out the door when opened.

Poppy was another statistic of being left behind when her owners moved out of the property. Lucky for her the kind hearted neighbours had been keeping an eye on her and fed her and made sure she was safe. When they noticed she was pregnant, they got in touch with HAR and Poppy’s days of living on the streets were over. She was in care for 6 days when she gave birth to her babies. This was quite traumatic for Poppy and she had some complications due to being a young kitten. Now that she is desexed, all those issues have gone and Poppy is healthy and happy.

Poppy needs to be win a home where there are no other pets. She is best suited to a home with older children (10 +), or adults only, no young children.

Reggie

Reggie is an 8 week old, male Boarder Collie X puppy. This little pocket rocket could run and play for hours! He is full of beans when he is awake but also doesn’t mind some downtime cuddles and a nap or 3 as well. Reggie loves being outside playing with his sister Zala and his human foster brothers. Although he is not fully toilet trained due to being a little puppy, he is definitely trying very hard to learn and is doing amazing. Reggie is the fun, energetic and loving pup you didn’t know you needed. Reggie is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a home environment. Reggie hasn’t been around other dogs besides his sister Zala but he has been raised around kids. He’s met lots of people and is friendly and affectionate with them. Reggie will grow up to be a medium dog. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. It would be a big plus if you have a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate for Reggie. If you don’t have another dog to keep him company, then there needs to be someone in the household that doesn’t work full time. Reggie needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. He will be wonderful family dog and is suitable for children 8 years and older. You need good fencing with no small gaps. He can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire). Reggie’s sibling Zala is also available for adoption.

Zip

While I’m a natural fun-lovin Zip, I’m a little out of sorts at the moment because I’m still acclimatising to the change of environment. Zip is a little scared and shy around humans, even though he adores pats and snuggles. Zip is not fully toilet trained, but is working at it.

I get along with most dogs but I like playing and snuggling with dogs around my own size. I have a very fine build, so I’d hate to get crushed or bullied by a big. Walking on a lead was really weird, but I’m getting used to that. And I love it when my humans throw a little yellow ball at the park so I can chase it. When I take it back to them, I get a little cheer of encouragement. That makes me happy, so I do it again… until I get distracted by my buddies. My foster mum had to give me an all-over, number 1 shave to fix the atrocious haircut I had on arrival. It was probably my fault – I wouldn’t sit still so the hairdresser (who wasn’t very good!) gave up halfway through. In summary, my perfect forever home would be: – where humans are home almost all of the time, at least initially. – where my forever family understand my needs, and appreciate that I’ll take time to adjust and learn home life. – where someone as time to commit to my training and provide lots of love and attention. – with the company of just one other friendly, playful, and non-aggressive dog. – a calm and stress-free home with no loud, scary noises. – a home that is stable and permanent. – a home with no small children. – where I get at least one good outing and exercise session, plus regular doggy social time – a yard to have a little run that is 100% escape-proof for a little dog who is good at slipping through gaps and scurrying over small fences. IMPORTANT: Zip has had zero training and will need some time to adjust. He will require lots of patience and understanding to transition from kennel life to living inside a home. It will take time for him to build confidence around new people. Consider his suitability to your home before submitting an adoption application.

Marvin

PUG

Shortland, NSW

Hello! I’m Marvin the Marvellous! My foster mum said I’m funny and have these quirky ways that just crack her up. She likes talking to me a lot even if I’m always cranky answering back especially if it’s feeding time. She said I have the cutest bark. I’m a little bit sensitive to sounds from outside the house but she doesn’t really shoosh me unlike my foster brother Billy who’s very tiny but with a massive vocal cord, he can really bark! I love my foster siblings, we play and chase around the house and the backyard, but Tess the dino dog plays more with me than Billy, so I annoy him even more. hehe I don’t have any other furry friends like cats, but I am very friendly towards all specially children, well, older children are better from 4 year old up who won’t always crumple my face due to my cuteness. My foster mum tucks us in every night and wipes my face with hypoallergenic wipes specially my face and the crepes under my eyes. I’m very fond of my foster dad. He plays wrestle with me and cuddles me a lot. I’m a little heavy at 9kg but I’m his lap dog and he carries me sometimes like a baby. He drives me and my foster family around and I love it, although I get a little anxious when we go to new places, pants and it seems difficult to breathe, but as long as you bring me a lot of water, shady, cool place to relax, I will be okay. I’m a chill, home buddy, lazy dog, but if you’re up for adventure, I’m 100% game! Just be mindful that I can only do mini walks cause I might over heat and I need a lot of water and time to rest. You see, if you have a snub nose like mine, men, it’s like breathing thru a straw. lol But don’t worry I don’t have that loud snore that wakes you up at dawn when we sleep. 🙂 My foster mum teases me a lot about being fat (like her) but the vet says I’m in perfect sexy shape! Although I really love food sooo much! I eat wet food and must be in chunks cause I find it difficult to pick up food if they’re crushed. I also like some dry food mixed with my wet food sometimes. Oh and I love treats but pretty please hold the treats near my mouth while I try to bite it, cause with my snub nose, I find it hard to pick it up from the floor. I like toys and small balls too but not that of an avid fan. I love our home, it has a nice grassy backyard and colorbond fencing which I need cause I like to run and play around at times. I miss my foster parents when they go out, but I’m pretty well behaved staying at home while waiting for them. My foster siblings are good companions while we wait, but I think I’m also good just being by myself. Mostly, I like chilling inside the cool, cozy house as I’m not well with the hot environment, so I prefer being an inside dog. That’s also why I’m okay with baths and I drink water a lot. And by the way, you may need to bear with me as I may still have accidents inside the house as my tummy acts up during midnight when all the doors are already shut. My foster mum said, I’m a terrific dog and the perfect life companion. I can see she is sad when she said somebody may adopt me soon. But she is excited for the good life I have ahead with a family that’s going to love and take care of me forever. I’m so excited to meet my own human soon! I promise to be a good boy and will love you forever and ever! Love and Kisses, Marvin Marvin is in foster care in Newcastle area, NSW. His adoption fee is $600, and he is desexed, vaccinated and treated for worms. If you are interested in adopting Marvin please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt If you would like to learn more about Marvin, please contact his foster carer at [email protected] for any further questions.

She might get along with another cat, so long as they’re gentle with her. But she would definitely love some humans to give her lots of pats. Shes a seafood lover and enjoys her biscuits. Megs would suit a calm environment, with patients and understanding, until she can come out of her shell a bit more. Being your one and only princess, that she clearly is.

Clyde

Clyde is 3.3kg of personality. This short little man is the absolute best of both breeds (we think he may be Dachshund X Kelpie). Smart, Smart Smart! He is already using the doggy door, is learning to sit for a treat and will wee as soon as his feet hit the wet grass. He is independent and confident and is a perfect blank canvas with all the makings of a great companion. If you are looking for a couch buddy, someone to laze away the days with, then keep scrolling – Clyde is NOT for you. He loves food and wants to learn and be rewarded for learning. He is always on the go and wants to know what’s next and he wants to explore everything. His ideal forever home will have time for an active smart dog. His exact heritage is not known, but he has slightly longer legs than a snag and decent sized feet so our best guess is he will grow into a short Kelpie height with the Dachshund face?? Oh and that gorgeous long snag body. Clyde is great with his foster siblings and understands all the usual social cues from the other dogs. Clyde sleeps inside the house, in a crate with his siblings all night long without stirring. His forever home will need to give him inside access to the house. Clydes ideal forever home will: • Have time and willingness to train a smart active dog • Live an active lifestyle and want a dog to join them • Understand that he is still very much a pup and understand that he is still learning house training and will chew things • Have a secure yard with room for him to do plenty of zoomies Clyde is in foster care in Fletcher, NSW and his adoption fee is $700. As Clyde is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens areas because he will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when he is 6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

His new learnt skill is the doggy door, it’s a must have please, so he can practice his ongoing toilet training please as he doesn’t want to revert to inside toileting as he knows you won’t like that. Chase sleeps in a crate all night long but given the chance he will sleep with his humans in their bed soundly. His foster carer lets him out once through the night to go to the toilet.

Zuma

Zuma is an 8 week old, male, black and white Border Collie puppy. He is a big fluffy ball of love! Zuma loves people and is happy to play or cuddle – both are great if you ask him. He has a gentle and affectionate nature, and will often sit back, waiting patiently to be noticed amongst his siblings. Zuma is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a home environment. He has been well socialised with other puppies and adult dogs and gets along well with them all. He’s met lots of people and is friendly and affectionate with them. Zuma will grow up to be a medium dog. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. It would be a big plus if you have a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate for Zuma. If you don’t have another dog to keep him company, then there needs to be someone in the household that doesn’t work full time. Zuma needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. He will be wonderful family dog and is suitable for children 6 years and older. You need good fencing with no small gaps. Zuma’s siblings ‘The Paw Patrol Pups’ are also available for adoption. Zuma’s adoption fee is $800 which includes his desexing when he is old enough. It also includes his first two vaccinations. He has been treated for fleas and worms, and is microchipped. Zuma is in foster care in near Cessnock, NSW.

Dusty

Dusty came into care very scared of everyone and everything. But with some time and patience he’s been learning to trust humans again. Having no microchip prior to care, it’s hard to tell his exact age, but the vet has estimated him to be no more than a year old, so he’s still quite young.
Dusty was a timid young man, he was learning to trust humans, and now is coming to me all the time for pats. His favourite thing is a scratch under his chin and around the ears. He hasn’t shown much interest in toys or being a lap cat, but that might change with more time. Dusty is such a gentle boy with the biggest beautiful eyes just waiting to find that special family to give him the love he deserves. He is a fair bit larger than the average cat. Dusty has been vaccinated, microchipped and desexed and available for adoption now. Dusty would probably suit a quiet home, maybe one with older or chill kids. And at this stage no dogs. Its not a must but he might benefit from living with another cat as living with other cats has helped him to gain his confidence. Especially if he can see that the other cats trust the humans. He is required to be rehomed as an indoor only cat. To protect both the local wildlife and himself. Not much is known other than that he was rescued from a house with about 10 other cats after the owner passed away in the home. He gets on great with other cats no matter their activity level. He has met dogs and is unsure of them. He might be okay with them, but until he builds up his confidence with humans he would be best to be an only cat or no other pet home. He has done really well with children. Providing that the children are calm and respectful of his space.

Lucky

Lucky the pocket rocket 22-month-old Mini Foxy might only weigh 4.5 kgs, but he has the heart of a Lion. Lucky is a ball of love, playfulness and energy. He will seek out games, walks and companionship from dogs, cats, adults and he absolutely adores kids of all ages. He even enjoys walking past the local daycare for sniffs and pats. He loves his food and snacks but has quite good manners while you are eating. Lucky has been very happily living in foster care with an older female dog, a kitten (they are best friends) and an active 5-year-old child. He is very excited about everything, and often stands on his hind legs and hops while he is waiting for something. Lucky needs work on recall, can get distracted easily and has tried to head off on solo adventures if given an opportunity. He is very social and will say hello to most social dogs. Lucky is toilet trained and has not had any accidents during his stay in care. Lucky sleeps well in a bed near people and will let you know if he needs to go out during the night. He is still adjusting to using the doggy door, but should adapt with continued training. Needs some work on slowing down and not barking when starting a walk. The excitement can make Lucky “hop” on hind legs for the first few minutes of walk, but he calms down into a good leash walker (occasionally getting distracted and barking excitedly at other dogs). Will require a regular routine with couple of walks per day (or one longish walk). Lucky would be suited to most homes, but would probably flourish with active fur friends (female or very friendly male) and would love some children to fuss over him. Happy at home during part-time work hours, with a dog or active dog-savvy cat companion. Will bark if bored, under exercised or if neighbours’ dogs are barkers. Overall Lucky is a very good boy who is super loveable, cuddly and still young enough to be trained to become the perfect companion for you/your family for many years to come.

Louis

Louis is a 2 year old Miniature Poodle and is gentle and sweet tempered and likes lots of cuddles. His favourite thing to do is snuggle up close on the lounge and watch TV. He is not super active, a 20 minute walk daily suits him fine (he won’t wear you out!) and he walks beautifully on the lead. When you call his name, he comes straight away, he wouldn’t want to miss out on another cuddle. This cute little guy is toilet trained, knows how to use the doggy door and with a bit of patience has the potential to learn a lot more tricks. After a bath, he gets the zoomies and likes to run around the backyard or play a game to burn off a little energy. He likes to explore what’s inside stuffed toys so a sturdy toy is probably a better option, unless you don’t mind the mess. Like all poodles, Louis needs regular brushing and clipping every 7-8 weeks to ensure he’s looking his best but he promises not to leave any fur on your furniture and floors. When you first meet Louis, he might be a little bit timid, he doesn’t like loud noises. With a gentle approach you will quickly gain his trust and his personality will shine through. Louis plays well with other dogs and would ideally suit a quiet household with a member home more often than not or another small dog to keep him company. If you are looking for a new best friend to follow you everywhere you go, I would like to introduce you to Louis. Overview: – friendly, gentle, medium energy and cuddly – house trained – plays well with other dogs – needs regular grooming – best suited to a quiet household with someone home more often than not or a playmate. – Waiting for his new best friend. For more information on Louis, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]. He is in foster care in Whitebridge, NSW and is available for adoption in NSW only.

Nacho

Meet Nacho, a 5 year old male Frenchie. This boy is sweet, affectionate and loyal. He loves nothing more than lazily napping in the morning sun unless you’re up for a game of fetch or tug. Given the chance, this boy will be an amazing companion. Nacho is house trained, crate trained and travels well. He also adores the beach and swimming and has great recall. Going for walks is also a major highlight for him and he walks really well on lead. This boy is brilliant, however there is a catch… Before you see all these great attributes, you must first gain his trust. Nacho has trust issues with both people and other dogs. He currently lives with 2 other dogs and although he has no interest in playing with them he tolerates dogs in his home and also in the car. He is not a fan of strangers walking into his yard or house but once he has deemed that they’re ok he is fine providing they don’t pet him until he’s ready. To manage this and to give him his own space, he is crate trained and happily goes into his crate when ordered to do so. Nacho enjoys his Bunnings outings and is fine around people providing they don’t try to pat him. Once you’ve built a relationship with Nacho, he is the most affectionate, loving dog. Nacho needs a home where there is not a lot of people coming and going, and with no small children. His new family should have plenty of patience. Nacho is in foster care in Swansea, NSW. His adoption fee is $600.

Spot

Meet this lovely little lady, Spot! Spot is a very affectionate, happy go lucky and playful Border Collie X. Spot is currently 6 months old and will grow up to be a medium sized dog. Spot is a very playful and energetic. She loves to play fetch & tug-o-war, go on long walks and learn new tricks. When it’s time for a break, you’ll find her wanting to be right by your side or happily in your lap. She gives the best doggy cuddles and kisses. Spot loves her daily car rides to pick up her favorite foster humans from school. The human kids! She just loves their energy and playful spirit! She is dog friendly and tested with an elderly dog, but she would be required to meet any potential doggy siblings prior to adoption. Especially with her energy levels. A doggy sibling could teach her good manners and keep her company. Spot is toilet trained and happily sleeps through the night in a crate. Spot is a versatile girl who would suit a family with children as she’s learning to not jump, a retired couple or a single owner. Spot needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. You need good fencing with no small gaps. Spot is in foster care in Medowie, NSW. Spot’s adoption fee is $600 which includes her desexing and first two vaccinations. She has been treated for fleas and worms, and is microchipped.

Toto

At just over 5kg, little Toto is a delightful buzz of energy. He stars in this show reel: https://youtu.be/AMtvA7Yr72Q Toto is initially very timid and unsure of both humans and dogs, but once he feels confident his personality shines and becomes the most lovable, totally adorable little pooch. He bounds like a little bunny when he runs and loves to play with other dogs he’s familiar with. He likes playing one-on-one with doggy friends, sometimes even a trio, but any more and he becomes overwhelmed and anxious. He has some endearing little quirks – like taking items from the doggy toybox (stealth-like) and stockpiling them in his ‘special spot’ behind the couch. Toto is doing excellent with his toilet training and he is crate trained. He nearly always sleeps through the night without a peep – on the occasional night he’ll bark out: “may I go to the toilet please” during the night and then back to sleep again in the crate until morning. He’s a snuggly character who loves a pat and belly rub, but also needs a good level of exercise. He definitely sleeps more solidly at night after a long walk or two during the day! You won’t need a doorbell with Toto around – he has sharp senses and tells his humans when there is someone at or approaching the door. He doesn’t bark incessantly, but he takes his role of head of house security very seriously and sometimes gets carried away and needs encouragement to stop. For a little guy who’s never had any training, he goes alright. He walks pretty well on the lead and mostly does as he’s told. He clearly understands the word “no” when he’s doing something he shouldn’t. Using a doggy door on the other side of the house without being shown demonstrates he is a clever, resourceful guy. Being young, a commitment to basic manners training is a must and will guide him in the right direction as he matures. Since being in care, Toto has barely been left unattended, so he hasn’t been tested for long periods on his own. He seems to thrive with human and doggy company. He has not been tested with cats, birds or other pets. We think Toto will be best placed in a calm house, preferably with another smallish and/or submissive doggy sibling. His ideal home would be: – where humans are home more often than not, and have time to commit to my training and provide lots of love and attention – with the company of just one other friendly, playful and non-aggressive dog (he gets a bit overwhelmed with more than one; and lonely on his own) – a calm and stress-free home – a home that is stable and permanent – a home with no small children – where he gets at least one good outing and exercise session, plus regular doggy social time – a yard to have a little run that is 100% escape-proof for a little dog who is good at slipping through gaps Toto is in foster care in Mayfield, NSW. He is available for local adoption only. Toto’s adoption fee is $700. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt and include the name of the dog you wish to apply for. You can contact Toto’s foster carer via email at [email protected] if you have any questions, but please be aware that you will not be considered without submitting an application. Please do NOT just list the reference number or the microchip number as this will delay your application reaching the correct foster carer.

How Do I Interact with Kids, Dogs, Cats and Other Pets:Lulu’s friendly and gentle nature makes her an ideal companion for families, however, we would recommend a home with children aged 12 and above, due to her boundless energy.

Ripley

Ripley is a cute and cheeky 12 week old mixed breed puppy looking for a family of his own. Ripley is lots of fun with a big personality. He loves giving kisses and playing with his foster brothers but once he’s burned some energy he loves to snuggle up on you for a nap. Ripley has been working on his toilet training and has picked this up very quickly. As a young pup training and socialising are important to develop into a happy and well adjusted adult dog. We always recommend puppy school along with training at home to ensure the best start for puppies. We are unsure of Ripley’s exact breed mix but he is quite small in stature and we believe he may be mixed with a small breed. He is expected to grow to a small/medium size dog. Ripley came into care with his siblings who were all extremely timid after spending their early weeks in a pound. Every day Ripley gets happier and braver but he is still unsure in new environments and needs a family who understands he may take some time to settle in to a new home and are willing to help him learn about the world. Ripley currently lives with 3 other dogs who he loves to play with and would be happy with a furry sibling, however would also be ok as an only dog. He has met a cat and was interested but kept his distance. Ripley is currently an inside dog and must be allowed inside in his new home. He is only very small and needs good fencing without gaps a little puppy can squeeze through. Ripley’s adoption fee is $700 which includes his desexing when he is old enough. It also includes his first two vaccinations. He has been treated for fleas and worms, and is microchipped. Ripley is in foster care in East Maitland, NSW.

Jackson

Jackson is a playful and affectionate smoochie tabby cat with a unique feature – a floppy ear that gives him an adorable and endearing appearance. He is a young adult cat with a sleek and shiny coat of brown and black stripes that make him stand out in any room. This mischievous feline loves to play, and his favorite game is chasing after toys, especially the ones that dangle from a string or stick. He also enjoys pouncing on anything that moves, from a passing bug to a falling leaf. He is incredibly agile and can leap great heights with ease, making him an impressive sight to behold. Despite his playful nature, Jackson is also a cuddle bug who loves nothing more than snuggling up with his human companions. He is a lap cat through and through and will happily purr away while receiving head scratches and belly rubs.

One of Jackson’s most endearing qualities is his smoochiness. He loves to give his humans affectionate headbutts and nuzzles, often accompanied by a gentle purr. He is a social cat who loves meeting new people, and he has a way of making everyone feel welcome in his presence. Although Jackson can be a bit of a troublemaker at times, his sweet nature and playful antics make him an absolute delight to be around. He is the perfect addition to any household that is looking for a fun-loving and affectionate feline companion. Jackson is suitable for most households. Not a lot is known about his background other than he ended up at the local pound and no one came to claim him. He was already desexed so has been a companion of humans before. He should be fine with children as he has a very gentle nature. He is unsure of dogs at the moment but after proper introductions could be a canine’s friend. He doesn’t get along with other cats too well. They must give him a lot of space until he gets to know them better. But would preferably like to be the only cat.

When she’s not playing with her foster sister she loves to go for zoomies or just sit and chew on her favourite bone. She has progressed with her training a lot since coming into care but will need a family committed to her ongoing training. Molly currently has access to inside and outside at most times. Although she prefers to spend most of her time inside chewing on toys or playing. Molly can be a bit nervous at first when meeting new people and animals, but warms up very quickly and won’t leave you alone after that. She’s like a little furry shadow! She hasn’t been tested with cats or pocket pets. Molly needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside. She will be wonderful family dog and is suitable for children 8 years and older as she is still jumpy. You need good fencing with no small gaps. She can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire).

Bella

Introducing Bella! Bella is a 2-year-old purebred German Shepherd and is a loving and devoted girl. An adorable dog, Bella, mixes it up and can often be found both outside and inside the house. She is just as comfortable lying on the floor while the family watches movies, as she is in the backyard playing tug or hanging out while you are working. She knows commands like sit, wait, down, spin and will wait for her food till she is released with “okay”. Ongoing training would be recommended as she loves to please her owners and learns very quickly with the right motivation. She loves human attention and would do best in a house with older kids and without other dogs. She has previously always lived happily with other dogs, but she is a bit of an attention hog, and would prefer that her forever home was all about her. It must be stated that she has a strong prey drive (which is typical for the breed), so she would be incompatible with other small pets like cats, rabbits, or birds as she will want to chase them. She is house trained and is accustomed to being inside, but she is extremely smart. This means that she can open doors (she can currently open every door in the house if not locked) and let herself out for a run if she is bored. This intelligence means she can bore easily, which sometimes results in her digging holes. So, she is best kept amused with bones, tug toys and frequent walks and interaction. Due to her size, she will need someone who can physically handle walking her appropriate distances. She gets excited at the beginning of walks but settles down to a comfortable walk. She isn’t too reactive to other dogs when walking (doesn’t lunge or bark) but will need continued socialisation. She loves a walk along the Speers Point Esplanade. She also loves the water, whether it’s a play with the hose or a run at Redhead Beach. She gets along well with other dogs who are happy to be chased, she can be a bit timid however, and prefers not to be the one being chased. When meeting new dogs, she can be a bit stand-offish but generally warms up quickly. Bella is crate trained and sleeps inside, in her crate at night. However, if you feel so inclined, she doesn’t shy away from a night of sleep at the end of the bed. She loves to be around people. Bella is in care in Elermore Vale, NSW and is available for interstate adoption. Her adoption fee is $700 which includes desexing, vaccinations, flea, and worm medication. If you are interested in adopting Bella, please fill out the adoption application form here – https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt If you would like more information on Bella, please email [email protected]

Scout

Meet Scout! He’s a goofy little dude who is looking for his forever home. Scout is a playful, loving doggy. He loves to play, chase you around, go on walks and adventures then finish the day snuggling by your side. He has great recall, walks well on the lead and knows basic commands. He will lift his little paws to help put on his harness and sits at roads before crossing. Scout has lived with another small dog but can be reactive towards new dogs, particularly large ones. He would be better suited as an only dog or would need to be tested as a second dog. He has some fear towards unknown men but overcomes this quickly, especially if food is involved. Scout is very food motivated and learns new skills quickly. He’s a young dog so he has so much more to learn about the world and would love someone who would continue showing him. In return you will get lots of snuggles, little welcome home dances and lots of laughter from his quirky ways.

Peggy is the sweetest, most loving, cheeky and interactive kitten. She loves to have a run around and play with her sisters and brother (and is usually the instigator of all things mischievous), but also loves to snuggle with her humans and hold their hand while she purrs, lovingly looking into their eyes. Peggy will greet you with a little meow every time you walk in the room.

Peggy should be fine to go to a home as an only cat, as long as there is someone home a lot of the time. She would be happy if another friendly cat lived in the home, or she could be adopted with her loving Momma Dolly. Peggy is available as an indoor only cat, unless she has a secure outdoor enclosure to enjoy outdoor time in.

Peggy was born in care on the 19th January 2023 after her mum was abandoned heavily pregnant at the pound. She has always been healthy and has a very healthy appetite- her nickname has always been Chunkies. Peggy loves other cats and she likes her foster dog. She has not been tested with children, but as long as they are respectful and gentle, she should be fine.

Sylvester

Sylvester is pretty unique in every way. He is not a cat, he is something otherworldly. Unless you know him, it is impossible to describe him. But here goes.
He has the confidence of a king, attitude of a rockstar and a total wild streak. His foster mum has known many, many cats but no one like this little guy. No one! He is more puppy than cat.
This boy will own you and you will love it. Your heart will explode with every little move he makes. He is a time waster. All you want to do is cuddle him, watch him sleep and nurture him.
He loves to play with his toys and basically anything that moves. He goes wild for food, enjoys a good nap, but nothing is better than being by your side. He will always be near you, sleeping soundly at your feet. He will follow you around and will come to your call. You will constantly catch him staring at you with loving eyes. He flops in your arms savouring your embrace and will soundly sleep in bed with you, feeling safe from the big bad world he used to be alone in. You will be lulled to sleep with his gentle purrs and his little paws resting on you. It is so precious. You will wonder how a creature like this exists.
He enjoys a quick cuddle and when you lay down with him he will head butt you and show you, you are his everything. He radiates love and gratitude. Sylvester needs a home where he will be absolutely cherished, every single day, forever. He must be an only cat and it’s essential he be indoors only in a secure home. Ideally someone working from home, perhaps someone alone who will give Sylvester their whole heart because he will give you his. There won’t be room for anyone else in your life and honestly, Sylvester will love you more than any human possibly can. He is good with children so a family environment could work too. He does play rough so older children are better suited and can get right under your feet seeking attention so not great for the immobile or elderly.
Indoor cats need lots of enrichment, so toys, a scratching post and secure doors and windows to look outside. He has learnt to walk on a harness and has half an hour each day exploring the yard with total security. He will love this to be kept up. He would flourish with a secure cat enclosure. As he needs to be indoors only it is not suitable for there to be young children who may leave a door or window open where he can get out. Older, very responsible children only. He lived with a little dog so could potentially be friends with a very gentle dog. He is intrigued by dogs.
No cats unless you have a gentle, friendly FIV cat.

Stormy

Meet Stormy an 11 month old white and tan male Jack Russell Terrier X. Stormy weighs in at just over 20kg. He really does look like a Jack Russell on stilts though! Stormy loves his walks and has had some lessons in loose lead walking. He is learning this quite quickly. He is such a good boy and sits on command. Stormy is such a playful boy and loves his toys and to chomp on a bone. His tennis ball destruction mode is strong, so you will need plenty of spares. He loves to play chasey in the yard and often gets the zoomies. Storm is working on his toilet training during the night, but he is so close. He just cant quite hold on for the whole night. He will stand by the back door during the day to be let out. We think if his forever home had a doggy door where he could come and go he would master this quite quickly. Stormy just loves his people. Fun Fact #1. His foster family call him the little drummer boy, because his tail is always waging and beating on the floor or couch when he is with you.

Fun Fact #2. Stormy has one eye that looks half blue. It doesn’t effect his vision at all and the vet said that is quite unusual. If you can already see yourself making eye of the storm jokes with your friends then maybe this lovely boy is for you. Stormy’s ideal home will : • Have a fully fenced larger yard with plenty of room for him to run and play for exercise and mental stimulation • May have older children who are confident not to be knocked over during a good game of chasey • Could have another dog. He is super friendly and we thing he would enjoy another fur companion. • He must be welcomed into the family home. Being with his people is his favourite thing and this is non negotiable.

For more information on Stormy, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]. Stormy is in foster care in Fletcher, NSW and is not available for adoption interstate. Stormy’s adoption fee is $600 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Babe

Hi, my name is Babe but my current foster mum calls me Cinque [CHEEN-kweh]. To be honest, I’m always up for a pat so I’ll come to any name you call. I love one-on-one attention and will let you pat me for hours. I’m happy to snuggle up against you or sit on your lap. I purr with even the slightest touch and I often want to look into your eyes and tell you how much I love you.
I would make a great lap cat to sit on the couch with my forever human watching tv. I play well with the other cats in foster care but having a friend is probably not a necessity for me. I get the zoomies at least once a day but am mostly content napping and getting loved. I am however addicted to this toy mouse that makes a squeaking noise and can play with it for hours. I also love to climb the cat tree and give it a good scratch. I should be fine with children as I have a very gentle nature but I don’t like a lot of noise or commotion for extended periods. The dogs don’t bother me but I haven’t met one nose to nose yet. I think a cat savy dog that isn’t too boisterous would be fine. I went into the pound with my sister Taloula, and I am fine with all other cats due to my sweet and gentle nature.

Pepper

A Labrador X staffy, Pepper is an 8 yr old girl looking for a home. This 35kg, wanna be lap dog, has such a sweet nature that everyone who meets her falls in love. Her sweet spot is belly rubs and her eye catching blue /grey colouring will have strangers crossing the street to oblige her. She happily shadows you around the house and gives a nice big sigh when you finally sit down to watch some telly. Fully house trained, she is a delightful companion who would suit someone who works part time as she doesn’t suffer any separation anxiety. Fun fact – She starts each night in her own bed where she waits patiently for her foster mum to fall asleep before sneaking into bed with her. Like most dogs her size she will require a walk at least once a day. She is still mastering the lead and can pull a bit and her new home will have people who are sturdy on their feet and who can continue with this training. Whilst she is a social dog at heart, Peppers ideal home will be one where she is an only dog. She is happy and social when out meeting other dogs but would prefer to be an only dog in the home. She can jump up when initially meeting new people but calms down quickly. She travels well in the car but is not a fan of thunderstorms, but mostly calms after reassurance. For more information on Pepper, please contact her foster carer on their email [email protected]. Pepper is in foster care in Newcastle, NSW and is not available for interstate adoption. Peppers adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in adopting Pepper, please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Daisy is our cat of the week. She has been in care a very long time because she is shy. She spent 6 months in a small cage at the pound before she was rescued. She is 1.5 years old and is growing in confidence everyday and the little milestones really burst the carers heart. 

She likes small, quiet spaces where she can retreat to for naps. She is enjoying tummy rubs and pats and is great using a scratching post. She loves to chase ping pong balls. You can tell she is desperate to unshed her shell but it takes time. She will need a very quiet home where her owners will be patient and give her a whole lot of love.  Daisy is tolerant of cats, but not known with dogs. 

Apollo

Apollo is a striking ~1yo year old border collie X who is searching for a loving and patient forever home. He is a real sweetheart has endless affection to offer. Apollo is extremely sweet, friendly and playful with people. He takes a little longer to warm up to dog friends and is initially wary of them. However, after only 2 days in care, Apollo can be seen playing excitedly with his foster dog sibling and cohabiting the space peacefully. Apollo is house trained, travels well in the car and knows how to sit, shake and play fetch. He sleeps nearby you if allowed, but also happy to sleep in a separate room. He wants to be close to you and snuggle up as much as possible. Apollo thinks he’s a lap dog and will want to join you on the couch to watch TV. Apollo is untested with cats. He would be suited to be an only dog, but a home with another dog could be considered if the dog has a calm, gentle and friendly nature. He would prefer a home with someone working part time or working from home as he prefers not to be left along for long periods. Apollo would suit an active single or couple who are committed to his ongoing training. As Apollo is still learning not to jump up when excited, families with older children will be ideal. Apollo’s adoption fee is $500 and he is in care in the Lake Macquarie area. The adoption fee covers desexing, microchipping, vaccinations and flea/worming treatments. For more information please email his carer at [email protected] and fill out the adoption form: https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Chikita

Meet Chikita. Chikita is 2 and has been in care for 10 plus months and prior to this she was in the pound for 6 MONTHS, pregnant and very scared!

Chikita has a gorgeous tortoise shell coat. She loves to play and enjoys watching tv. She is becoming more confident with the resident cat in care and we feel a home with a calm, cat friendly cat will help her. May be ok with a small, very gentle dog. She will suit a quiet home with a single person or couple. Chikita will need time and patience while she settles in. Adopting a shy cat is a wonderful thing to do.

Shadow & Hope

Shadow is a quiet, gentle and timid little girl. She wants to trust and am sure she wants to be cuddled but it will just take time. Hope is a beautiful innocent little one who loves to play and follow around her friends. She’s a good talker and is always interested in what is going on. A family who can change lives though love, kindness and patience. Is that you? Shadow and Hope are just $180 for the pair.

Shadow and Hope need a quiet home filled with unconditional limitless love, comfort, safety and respect.
They love places to hide and feel safe. Rooms with large windows, sliding glass doors or balcony with a view would make them so happy. They must be kept inside. The cattery has been lovely for them.
The best home would be one where they can run free in all the rooms, not being restricted.
The girls are both great with dogs and children.

Shadow arrived at the pound very pregnant after being captured. Being still very young herself, she gave birth to 4 babies but unfortunately, only one was to survive. Hope. Hope was growing everyday, but mum Shadow was her only companion. Their small cage was to become home for the next 9 months. With Shadow being very protective of Hope and scared herself, it was assumed that the mother and daughter were “feral”. They were used to having their litter changed daily and fed, but no more.

Both Shadow and Hope are great with other cats, the dog and the grandchildren. For more information about Shadow and Hope, visit Hunter Animal Rescue/Adopt/Cats.

Sage

Sage is a very healthy little puppy who has been raised in a loving home environment. She has been very well socialised with other puppies and adult dogs (small and large) and gets along well with them all. She has met lots of people and is friendly and affectionate with them. She has been consolidating her toilet training and has managed to sleep through the night without an accident. Sage will grow up to be a medium sized dog, although we are unsure of her exact breeding. She will require puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. And will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. Sage has been taught the basics such as sit, wait and how to walk on a lead. She is patient waiting for her meals and has good manners when she is eating. And quite the slow eater too. It would be a big plus if you have a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate for Sage. If you don’t have another dog to keep her company, then there needs to be someone in the household that doesn’t work full time. Sage needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside as she has been very well behaved and sleeping in her foster carers bedroom at night. She will be wonderful family dog and is suitable for children 5 years and older. You need to have good fencing with no small gaps. She can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire). Sage’s adoption fee is $700 which includes her desexing when she is old enough. It also includes her first two vaccinations. She has been treated for fleas and worms, and is microchipped. Sage is in foster care in Belmont, NSW. Since she is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to the Lower Hunter region (Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Maitland and Cessnock) plus Central Coast and Sydney. She’ll need to be returned to one of our approved vets for desexing when she’s 5 to 6 months old. To apply to meet Sage, please fill out our Adoption Questionnaire https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Narla

Narla is a confident loving girl, 10 week old Rottweiler x Ridgeback/Mastiff pup. Narla is a happy, playful girl who loves people, and other dogs, can be a little scared if they are bigger than her. She is a typical puppy, she has loads of energy, loves to play with soft toys, stick, socks anything else that is left laying around!! Narla should grow into a large sized dog with high energy, so she needs an active family with a large well fenced yard. Narla is being fostered with a family that has a teenage child and other dogs, so she is very well socialized but will need to keep the learning going. Narla will benefit from attending a puppy preschool to help further her education. Narla is still in the learning stage for potty training, and this will need to be kept up by her new family. She would also benefit from a friendly confident dog to continue to learn. Narla sleeps in a crate at night and should be allowed inside as she loves being with her humans.

Milo

Milo was rescued from the Pound after being found alone wandering in the bush. He has been loved back to health by his foster family and is ready to find his forever home. Milo is about 8 weeks old and his dominant breed is Foxhound. While he is quite small right now we expect that he will grow to be a medium to large dog so a reasonable yard will be a must. Milo is coming out of his shell and loves a play with his foster brother who is a boisterous young staffy cross. This is usually followed by a cuddle and a snooze. Milo is learning to toilet train and is starting to come when called. He likes to chew (including fingers!) and has sharp little puppy teeth which really young kids might find challenging. He has been extensively handled by his foster family including a 9 and 11 year old so is used to primary aged humans. He is quite a placid little one right now and prefers to have someone close by, so a family where people are home much of the time would be perfect. He sleeps under his foster mums desk while she works from home at the moment. Milo is vaccinated, wormed and microchipped. As Milo is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when he is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications. For more information on Milo please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected] . Milo is in foster care in Lake Macquarie area, NSW.

Ranger

Am I not the cutest little Blue Heeler pup ever!! My name is Ranger and I’m a 12 week old Rescue boy. First and foremost, I love my humans (both big and small) and would make an amazing companion. I wont be far from your heels at all times….I have a short stumpy tail, but that doesn’t stop me from wiggling it (especially when food and kids are in my view). My foster mum and siblings say that I’m a mix of fun, adventure, loyalty, patience and excitement. She also says that I’m a very clever boy….I have learnt to sit before my dinner is served (because she says that manners are super important) and crate trained for sleeping and escaping my 7 year old human sister . I’m dog social and sometimes think that I’m a lap dog and enjoy sleeping in your arms or on a blanket on the lounge with my humans . Being a Blue Heeler pup , I’m going to need some room to run….so I’m not looking for an apartment life or home with a small courtyard. I will need a medium to large fully fenced yard (or better yet, property) where I will have the space to do zoomies and lots of exploring! Having another doggie companion in my forever home would be awesome, but I do think that I’d adjust to being an only dog if I had the companionship of my humans. I will need my new family to continue on with my training and keep me dog social, so that I grow up to be a well mannered adult who can accompany you on social outings. This would definitely be the kind of life I would love. I’m currently in foster care in Valentine and had all my vet work done. This means that I’m ready to meet my new family….I’ve told you all about me, so now I need to know all about you…. For more information on Ranger, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected] . Rangers adoption fee is $800 As Ranger is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when he is approximately 5/6 months old.

Pirate

Pirate is an 8yo, Maltese x Shih Tzu. He lives for walks! He walks briskly on lead without making a lot of stops so he is an ideal walking companion. He isn’t worried by anything on walks such as traffic or other dogs. He just likes to trot along and enjoy himself. LIKES: • Going for walks! • Food and treats. • Playing with other dogs which he lives with. • Being inside and sleeping inside. • A comfy dog bed with a view to the outside. • A relaxed, quiet home without children. • Greeting you happily when you come home. • Back scratches. • Jumping into the car. DISLIKES: • Sitting on a lap • Being touched on his shoulder or head or when he’s not expecting it. • Being bothered when he’s sleeping. • A busy or noisy home or a home with children. MORE ABOUT PIRATE: • He will sit, lie down and shake hands when asked. • He is an inside dog. • He is housetrained and takes himself out the open back door as needed. • He sleeps all through the night in his own bed in the lounge room. • He barks at some outside noises but isn’t a nuisance barker. • He isn’t suitable to be let off lead in unfenced areas. • He loves his food and isn’t picky. • He is fine left at home alone while you go to work. Pirate was found as a stray on the street and taken to a pound. No one came to claim him. He wasn’t microchipped so the staff at the pound had to estimate of his age and breed. They also gave him his name. When he came into care, he had a benign lump on his shoulder and a couple of infected teeth. These must’ve been causing him discomfort for a while and he still doesn’t like to be touched around his shoulders and face and could bite in response. He likes back scratches though. Because he’s sensitive to touch it’s best to only touch him when he is asking you to, such as when he greets you upon coming home. He needs to have a bed in a quiet place in the house where he can rest without being disturbed. Pirate has low-shedding coat which won’t leave dog hair around your house or on your clothes. Since he doesn’t shed, he needs professional clipping every 6 weeks. This can cost around $75. He is small but chunky and weighs 7.6kgs. He recently had a dental cleaning and a small, harmless lump removed from his shoulder. * Pirate’s forever home will be with: • An experienced dog person who accepts that he is independent and doesn’t want a lot of touching. • Someone who will notice and understand his body language and respect when he needs his own space. • Someone who wants an adorable walking companion. • No children under 18. • No cats. • Other dogs ok. • Full time workers ok. Pirate is in foster care in Belmont, NSW (Lake Macquarie, south of Newcastle). ?? He is only available for adoption within NSW. His adoption fee is $500 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas, worms, vet checked, and microchipped. -> If you would like Pirate to be your walking buddy, we need you to please fill out our Adoption Questionnaire https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt You can see all our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Noni

This is Noni. This precious little miss came to us with no name and by the time I walked her to the car, I had called her Noni instead of No Name and it stuck. She answered to it from the very first time. Noni is small mixed breed beauty. This girl is very petite. She is knee high, slim-lined, and despite loving her food, only weighs 8kgs. Her golden/ginger coat is short, and she sheds very little. She is smart and loyal and well mannered. It is thought she might be up to 5 years old. Although very timid, Noni is a happy little girl for the most part. Her wagging tail will tell you she is happy, and her dancing spins tell you she is excited. She loves human company and listens intently to your every word. We recognise that wherever she comes from, she has had good obedience training, and is toilet trained too. Some things do not make her happy, but these can be worked around. Strange machine noises worry her. Hoses terrify her. Small male dogs off leash are a major no-no. So, Noni’s new people will hopefully be mindful not to take her to the dog park, not use the hose when she is next to them, and introduce her gently to machines other than the usual dishwasher, dryer etc. Oh! Noni doesn’t get aggressive, she runs and hides with her tail between her legs. Noni has shown no signs of separation anxiety while in foster care, but she is happy co-existing with another foster (strangely a bossy small overweight male), so is never truly alone here. She is most confident when her people are around to keep company with. Noni gets on great with the extended family when they visit and enjoys a run around with the 21 month old grandson. A calm, quieter home which functions on routine would be ideal. So if you are not looking for a building site forewoman, and not a dog park buddy, but are looking for someone to chat with, cuddle into, enjoy gentle walks with, share a lap with….Noni is waiting to meet you. For more information on Noni, please contact her foster carer on their email [email protected]. Noni is in foster care in Rankin Park NSW. Adoption fee is $600. If you are interested in adopting Noni please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt. You can see all of our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Posie

Posie

Posie is just as Posie is as sweet as her name implies. She loves sharing her puppy kisses with you, exploring and is very inquisitive. She enjoys playing tug of war and rough and tumbles with her foster brother so having a doggy sibling would be awesome but she would be ok by herself if you are home more often then not. Posie is an intelligent girl having learnt to be grass toilet trained, sit and sleeps well in her crate at night. She will need further training and stimulation to keep her mind and body busy and allow her to reach her full potential.

Posie Overview – Inquisitive, sweet and cuddly – Suitable for dog savvy kids – Needs ongoing training and socialisation – Is learning basic commands and toilet training – Loves to sleep all night in her crate – Needs a secure yard with lots of room to play and run – Will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for de-sexing when she is approximately 5/6 months old If you’d like to learn more about Posie please visit her adoption profile below, fill out the adoption application below or contact her foster carer at [email protected] with any further questions.

Snoopy

Snoopy

Meet Snoopy a 10 month old black and white Fox Terrier. This baby is extremely friendly and loves pats from anyone who is willing to offer them. He loves children, playing with his small fur foster sibling and playing endless games of fetch. Since coming into care Snoopy has slotted into family life with ease. Having spent his early life as an outside dog he has now mastered the doggy door and is extremely close to nailing his toilet training. This little guy is super smart and will do just about anything for a treat or a game of fetch. Snoopy hasn’t had much experience with walking on a lead and will need ongoing training with this but being so young, he will easily and quickly learn. Snoopy has been sleeping in a cozy bed in the laundry and is more than happy to stay there until morning. Snoopy is a quiet little man who is ok when left alone. Snoopy’s forever family will need to be committed to ongoing training. Due to his young age Snoopy needs mental stimulation and regular exercise. His new family will need the time and desire to invest in a young pups training and development. This little boy is a super star in the making and must go to a home where he will receive loads of interaction and developmental stimulation. He travels perfectly in the car which will make it easy for his future family to include him in their everyday life. Whilst he is an active young terrier with loads of energy, he is also a really well-balanced pup who does also love to chill in his bed next to you of an evening and maybe even a snuggle on your lap. Snoopy will do well with another dog of similar size but would also be ok as an only dog. He would need to be welcomed inside the home where he can be close to his favorite humans. Rural and mesh fencing is not suitable. He has not had exposure to cats or pocket pet and would need training to accept these into his daily life. For more information on Snoopy please contact his foster carer on [email protected] . Snoopy is in foster care in Cameron Park NSW and is not available for adoption interstate.

Finn

Finn

Meet Finn, a desexed 4 year old rare white schnauzer, looking for his forever home. He’s a sweet, funny, loving, loyal boy and always with his Foster Mum no matter where she goes! On the upside she says that she is never lonely and I’m great company for her when she works in the garden. When she is working from home he’s happy just to chill on the lounge in her office. Finn is a smart dog and quick at learning new commands and tricks and his foster mum has a feeling he would be excellent at agility. Finn understands “sit”, go to your bed and “wait” and is house trained and can use the doggy door. He loves hanging out inside on his bed with the family when they are at home. He walks really well on a lead and is not reactive when he sees other dogs whilst out and about. He has great recall except when there are feathered distractions. He really enjoys car rides and going to the beach. His dream home would be a family who would love to have him adore them and be their loyal companion. Maybe someone who works part time from home/ stay at home/retired to keep me company would be amazing! He’s ok on his own for a few hours here and there but gets anxious if there is no one home all day. For more information on Finn, please contact [email protected]. He is in care in the Newcastle region, NSW and is not available for interstate adoption. His adoption fee is $600.

Otis

Otis

Otis the 11 month old male Jack Russell x is looking for the simple life. Having a cosy lap and a daily outing is enough to fill this boys cup.

Otis is a quiet boy that will have a little play with the other dogs in care but he is not a high energy boy so ultimately just wants to be with his human.

He is slowly coming out of his shell and it has been beautiful to watch his confidence grow and show his sweet nature. Otis’ new home would have to show the same patience so that he can see that the world outside his backyard is not so scary. This would allow him to enjoy his daily stroll and be the best Cafe pal he could be.

He is working on a few new things including his toilet training and is doing so well so far. His new home will need the time to continue this training as loves to be inside with his humans as well as exploring the yard.

Otis has been tested to be left home alone and shown no signs of anxiety however someone is who is home often would be his best fit.

Otis has grown up having to be submissive to another dog and has shown that being given space of being by himself he can truly thrive and build on his own confidence. His ideal home would see him being an only dog so that he can enjoy the attention and have the energy put in to him in training and exposure or if not have a dog companion that is settled and would not take the lead over him.

Otis has been living in care with dog savvy children that understand he doesn’t want to be overwhelmed with attention and he will happily approach them for pats and couch cuddles when it suits him. So a home with children over 10 would be preferred. Otis has not been exposed to cats or pocket pets.

For more information or to meet Otis, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]. Otis is in foster care in Salamander Bay NSW. Otis’ adoption fee is $700 and will cover desexing, vaccination, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Jett

Jett

Jett – the history is a mystery, but the here and now is happy and that’s what matters for this wiry long coated little man.

Jett shows us that he once upon a time had a home. He is toilet trained; knows basic commands; is a polite eater and doesn’t feel the need to resource guard. He wants your attention, yet he is meek and doesn’t dare ask for it. He is content to spend time alone but is so very excited when you come home.

Jett is likely to be around 5 years old. He has spent quite a bit of time without those comforts a loving home provides. When he came into care, he was very shut down. Some patience and quiet loving have brought him out of his shell. And he is a gentle joy to be with.

This beautiful boy needs a home where he can be himself. He needs secure quiet hidey holes, places to explore during the day and comfy lounge time with his people at night. There are no strict requirements for his new family. Jett currently spends his days with an older and less agile couple and another foster dog who is a special needs boy. Jett appears to be a mix of Pomeranian and Schipperke. These breeds are both good with children, and Jett has been good with the foster carers’ grandson (under 2) but he is obviously nervous about the antics of a toddler, so older children (over 10) would be preferred. Lets be honest; he would prefer a family capable of taking him for “longish” walks and beach adventures; and he would prefer to have the company of a female pup. But he isn’t fussy. He just needs routine, some exercise, patient and confident people who will love him, and he will settle in and reward you with buckets of love.

Jett is desexed, wormed and vaccinated. and appears to be in great health. He requires a weekly brush because he is prone to dreadlocks over time. His fine fur is quite thick and shiny. He will always look scruffy, regardless of the time and effort put into his grooming so he is never really going to be show dog standard. But he has all the makings of a perfect family dog.

Jett will need secure fencing to keep him safe. He is nervous of thunder but doesn’t seem to mind the rain. He will dig belly holes under shrubbery, so he has a cool shady spot for alone time in the yard. He does not chase birds. He has not been tested with cats or pocket pets. He will definitely need to sleep inside at night – he may howl if he gets scared and that might upset your neighbours.

For more information on Jett, please contact his foster carer at [email protected]. Jett is in foster care at Rankin Park NSW. Jett’s adoption fee is $600 and he is desexed, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

Lucy

Lucy

Meet Lucy, our 3 year old Cattle Dog who finds herself looking for a home.

Lucy is very sweet and affectionate, she loves her toys, bringing them all into her bed to snuggle and running around with them.

Lucy is timid when outside of the home, but she is quickly developing her confidence and coming out of her shell. Lucy is still working out who, where and what is safe in the great outdoors. Lucy would benefit from a quieter home with a single, couple or family with older children. Lucy takes longer to warm to males in the home.

Lucy has quickly learnt the lead is a good thing! And is now quite excited to go for walks, even if it can be a bit scary out there at times. Due to so many thing outside being new experiences, a commitment to ongoing exposure and training is a requirement for adoption.

Lucy has lived with other dogs before, and quickly fell in love with her older foster brother, however a meet and greet would be required for adoption with another dog. She is untested with cats or pocket pets.

Lucy’s forever family will need to understand how to look after a timid dog, affording patience to allow Lucy to develop her confidence and find her place in her new home. Lucy does well with good boundaries which make her feel safe.

As Lucy is people orientated and loves company, she would need to be allowed inside to sleep, and hang out with her family. A doggy door is preferred as she has always lived indoors so this is her safe place. She is well mannered around food and obeys basic commands in the home well. She would love if her owners worked from home, or if not to have a doggy companion for company. Lucy’s new home will need to have good fencing that is 5ft tall with no gaps. Unfortunately, rural fencing such as mesh or wire would not be suitable.

Lucy’s foster parents say she is a total sweetheart to have around the house. Can you give the her the forever home she deserves?

For more information on Lucy, please contact [email protected]. Lucy is currently in care in Newcastle NSW. Lucy’s adoption fee is $500 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Elsa

Elsa

This delightful looking creature is Elsa. Elsa is a VERY high energy Springer Spaniel x Brittany. She is currently living with a trainer doing some exposure work as she can be nervous and reactive (lunge and bark) of new situations, people and places.

She is a sociable (human and dog) girl when settled and familiar with her surroundings, very lovable and wiggly. Elsa will only be going to a home where the new owners can provided ongoing training, dedication to the work needed for her, are capable handlers and are age appropriate.

For more information on Elsa please contact her foster carer on [email protected]. Elsa is in foster care at Central Coast, NSW, however we are open to Newcastle and Sydney applicants as we will transition her to another trusted trainer local to the new home.

Cali

Cali

If you love cuddles then Cali has plenty to give. The complete package of brains, beauty and unlimited love. With her cute curly tail and plush soft fur this darling was made for cuddling.

Prior to coming into care, Cali had virtually no exposure to the outside world but is learning quickly what all the sounds found outside a yard are. Super smart, within just one week in foster care she had learnt sit, stay, come and rollover. She is toilet trained, can use a doggie door and will sleep all night in her crate.

Cali has been in foster care with 2 young children, 5 and 7 years old and an older dog. They’ve created a wonderful bond, with the children teaching Cali to zig zag around poles to earn a treat! The perfect family for Cali will have either children for her to play with, or preferably another dog to keep her company and teach her more about being a dog. She’s very inquisitive and as such will readily learn new games. Cali will not be suited to a home where she has no company through the day, and will need either a stay-at-home/ work-from-home human, or another dog.

The new family Cali chooses must be prepared to continue her training. She is currently lead reactive, though super friendly off lead. But for her ongoing socialization she must become more confident walking on lead. Given she is so smart and treat motivated, we’d expect any training to be pretty easy. She’d probably love some agility training too for a motivated family.

She may dig if she gets bored, an easy fix is a sandpit with hidden treats. Cali has shown no inclination to try to escape a yard, but a good size play area and secure 5’ fences are a must. Because of her desirable looks, we will be quite strict with yard security. The yard must have locked gates and she must not be visible from the road.

For more information on Cali, please contact [email protected]. Cali is in foster care in Salamander Bay, Port Stephens. Her adoption fee is $600 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms.

Nalu

Nalu is a gorgeous 8 week old Kelpie cross with 4 white tips on her paws. Nalu is the most outgoing of her litter and has a BIG presence. She has the most gorgeous light eyes to compliment her brown coat. Dad is a long legged cross breed dog so we expect Nalu to be on the larger side of medium. Mum is a stunning chocolate Kelpie.

Nalu has a big personality, she is vocal at meal times and adores playing with other dogs and people. She really likes cuddles. Nalu is not suitable for first time dog owners, she is going to need owners who will give her a solid foundation in training and who understand smart working breeds. She is going to do all the things puppies do as they learn and grow. Digging, chewing, mouthing and pooping in the wrong places are all part of the deal with a pup. She is doing a great job learning to use a grass mat for toileting in her pen at night. She will need a family who are going to commit to consistent positive training, regular exercise and opportunities for games and play. Nalu will also need 4 meals a day whilst she is little. Applicants will need to factor this in to be considered.

Nalu will need secure fencing that cannot be climbed and a bed inside at night. She’d love older kids to grow with who will be respectful of her puppy needs. She is a super healthy pup ready for life’s adventures.

Nalu is in foster care in Salamander Bay, NSW. Her adoption fee is $700. As Nalu is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because she will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when she is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

Buddy

Buddy

Meet Buddy (Teefies) an 11 month old male Jack Russell Terrier. Buddy is an adorably handsome little guy with a big heart, adorable little teeth (Teefies) and a zest for life. He is extremely loyal and smart and would love a new home with a family full of children. He just adores his humans but is especially taken with little people and will happily follow them all over the place to exchange cuddles and kisses.

He is currently sharing his foster carer’s home with numerous dogs of all sizes and ages so has been well socialised but would love to be the centre of someone’s world without having to compete for attention. Buddy’s favourite activity is to chase the ball but he also enjoys going on adventures through the bush, playing in and around the dam and accompanying his foster carer on the daily feed run for the horses.

Buddy learns quickly and does his absolute best to try and please you. His favourite place to sleep at night is of course in the bed with his human but he also enjoys lazing on the couch, the cool tiled floor, the warm concrete, or his own little doggy bed. He has been allowed to come and go from the house as he pleases and for the most part is toilet trained. With a little further training and patience he will soon have this mastered.

If you think you can offer Buddy the perfect forever home, please contact his carer at [email protected]. Buddy is in foster care in Windermere Park, NSW and is available for adoption interstate. His adoption fee is $700 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Charlotte

Charlotte

Charlotte is a 7 year old dark chocolate Lab X with a very cute white stripe on her chest. She is a sweet natured dog, full to the brim with love and affection for her humans and if had her way, would spend every moment by your side.

Charlotte is a very relaxed dog and loves to just lounge around and sleep close to you. The way to her heart is definitely through belly rubs, snuggles and kisses. She’s not too fussed about toys but loves a good walk.Charlotte has been friendly and social when meeting new people although can start off slightly shy but it doesn’t take long for her to warm up with a few pats and belly rubs.

Charlotte would be the ideal companion for a household with people who are home more often than not. She gets anxious when left home alone and for this reason would work best with a family who work from home or are retired or with other dogs who would keep her entertained and ease her anxiety when you are out.

She is a bit of a tubby girl, so would need her new home to be with people who would be willing to put the time and effort in to help her achieve a healthy weight with lots of short walks and a strict feeding regime. Charlotte is housetrained and is child, dog and pocket pet friendly. Charlottes new home will need good fencing that is 6ft tall with no small gaps. Unfortunately, rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire) is not suitable.

Charlotte’s adoption fee will be $350, for more information about her, please contact her foster carer, Ellie, on their email [email protected]

Charlotte is currently in foster care in Waratah, NSW and is available for adoption interstate. Charlotte will be desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped at the point of adoption.

Marshall’s perfect home would be someone who is home more often than not, with a home with a large, secured yard and escape-proof fencing. Marshall would love to be with an active family who would walk him daily and take him on beach trips, of course with his sunscreen!

Bandit

Bandit

Bandit is a handsome, friendly and very energetic 6 month old kelpie cross. He is a gorgeous boy who loves everyone and everything.

Bandit came into care after his owner wasn’t able to keep him in rental accommodation. Since coming into care, Bandit has been living with an older dog, who is keeping him in line, and a cat, who is also teaching him manners. He hasn’t been tested with chickens or pocket pets.

Bandit loves the dog park; he adores running around and playing with an equally exuberant dog. At home, Bandit is a chewer, he loves his kong toys and sticks. He likes chewing balls but does not seem interested in chasing them.

Bandit would love to go somewhere with lots of space where he could run around. His love for everyone means that he might not be suitable for small children as he might knock them over in his rush to say hello. He is a bit of a jumper but he’s getting better with that. He travels nicely in the car and loves going for a walk to get coffee and treats in the coffee shop.

Bandit is a cross of two of the smartest dog breeds around, with the kelpie and the border collie combining to produce a whip smart dog. He would probably excel in a structured training environment. Bandit needs secure fencing.

Billy and Honey

Billy and Honey

Introducing Billy and Honey – 3 month old tan dachshund x kelpie puppies. These gorgeous pups found themselves in a regional pound so Dog Rescue Newcastle swooped in and brought them in to foster care. They’ve had a hard start being surrendered in a malnourished state, but their health is back on track.

These siblings may look similar but have very distinctive personalities

Billy (tan male), is the affectionate fun one. He loves cuddles, pats and playing.

Honey (tan female), is the energetic cheeky one. She loves exploring and playing.

They are both really fantastic pups. Still being toilet trained, and learning basic commands, but full of love, affection and energy.

Their ideal forever family will need to be home more often than not, especially during their younger months. They will need a lot of mental stimulation due to being working breed mix. We’re not sure how their physical energy will be with the dachshund in there.

They have been around a 13 year old grumpy old man dog, and 3 young children, and everyone is getting along brilliantly, so would be suitable for homes with kids of any age, and for homes with a resident dog.

They are being crate trained at night with very little issues. They are ready for adoption from Monday 17 October 2022.

For more information on these pups, please contact their foster carer Laura via email: [email protected]. They are in foster care in Mayfield, NSW (suburb of Newcastle).

Their adoption fee is $700 each which includes all up to date vet work. They are microchipped, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. Their adoption fee covers their desexing at 5/6 months.

Reggie

Reggie

Meet Reggie – a beautiful 10 week old Staffy x who’s playful and adventurous who loves to run around and wrestle. He’s a tough puppy with plenty of character but he is still a baby so will need a family who is committed to puppy training.

Reggie loves his brother who is currently in care with him, he has also been with an older dog and cat at his foster home who have both been extremely patient with him and is slowly working on good mannerisms. Reggie would fit in perfectly with a family who are home more often than not as he is still young and will need a lot of guidance.

Reggie needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep. He will also need a yard to run around, so please NO appartments or courtyard applications as he will be a medium dog and will need plenty of space. He will be a wonderful family dog and will need good fencing with no small gaps.

Reggie has started toilet training and we always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established. This will ensure that you get the best family member/friend possible.

Joey

Joey

Joey is a 6year old, Fox Terrier x Cattle dog boy with so much love to give. He is a very loving and affectionate little man who will be a loyal companion to his new family.

Joey has got the traditional face markings of the cattle dog breed and the agility and alertness that both breeds enjoy. Joey is great with people of all ages and is gentle enough to be around small children.

In the short time he has been with the foster family, he loves the company of their dog and is known to be tolerant of cats, but not chickens. Joey would be happy as an only dog or the second or third in the family.

He loves to run around the yard playing and discovering so a small yard would not be suitable for him. While he doesn’t mind spending time home alone, if it was too long or too often, he would get bored and might get into mischief and it just wouldn’t be fair to him. I can see him being very happy on a rural property or as a mate for a tradie.

For more information or to meet Joey, please contact his foster carer via email: [email protected]. Joey is located in the Newcastle Region NSW is available for adoption interstate.

Joey’s adoption fee is $600 which includes all up to date vet work. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

He has been in foster care with another female border collie who he adores and
annoys. He is very smart and is learning very quickly.

Winston wants to go to a home where he is taken out every morning for a long walk
and a play at the park. He wants to play with other puppies so he can learn what he
can and can’t do. He is already herding up his foster sister when out at the park
chasing balls. He loves to play tug-o-war and wrestle with his foster sister in the
evenings. He will need constant physical and mental stimulation throughout the day
and must be with his humans and sleep inside.

He would love lots of room to run around and explore on a property, semi-rural area,
park or beach. He will make a wonderful companion to someone whose activity level
matches his own, who is committed to loving him for a lifetime and giving him the
love and attention he craves and deserves.

As Winston is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when he is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

Winston’s adoption fee is $1000 which includes all up to date vet work. He is not desexed,

Stella

Stella

Stella is a 2-year-old Wolfhound x Cattle dog, she is on the small side for a hound, being under 40kg but what she lacks in stature she makes up for in personality! You need to understand that as a Wolfhound, Stelly has a particularly Wolfy style of play – and it’s not for every dog. Having said that she has totally won over my own two dogs who love playing zoomies and join in with her bouncing, spinning, handsy, bitey-face type of play. If you’ve not seen this type of play in action check out her videos and know she is having the best time! She is submissive to my dogs and will come and sit with an enormous smile on her face when “stop” is called on playtime. She is just the goodest girl!

Stelly as she is affectionately known, is houstrained and will sleep through the night, preferably in your presence such as beside your bed. She is not destructive inside the house and is trusted everyday with being left inside the house unsupervised while I go to work. Since arriving in foster care, Stella has absolutely blossomed and grown in confidence thanks to her foster brothers. She will try new foods and enjoys eating raw fresh meat varieties like chicken, kangaroo, and beef.

Stella has learned what a dog bed is for! She never had one before arriving into care. She now knows how to play with toys and enjoys carrying a toy around in her mouth, nibbling it, tossing it and then pouncing on it, she will also chase a ball or toy when thrown. Stella is a total goofball, curious and very driven by her nose when exploring the world, she wants to sniff any new dog very keenly all over at first!

Stella is friendly with dogs of all sizes and breeds but has told me she will choose a home where she has another friendly, male dog of similar size to play with her and give her
confidence to try new things. While we don’t know her full history, we know Stelly is quite skittish especially in unfamiliar environments and with unexpected movements and sounds. She doesn’t want to go to lots of different places until she’s quite bonded with you and feels safe and secure – and even then, she may not really enjoy it, at least at first.

Stella hasn’t been on many walks, she usually wants to stay close by your side and will take a little while to relax into the walk enough to walk ahead on the lead and let her nose enjoy all the new sniffs. She can be easily startled by traffic noise or unexpected sounds but is improving with the more regular sights and sounds of her routine walk.

Although Stella will require your patience while she learns to trust and eventually LOVE you, this process is greatly helped along by having another calm friendly dog around, giving her time and space …and lots of treats! Once she trusts you, she is so loyal, she looks at you with her big eyes like you are the most important person in the world – which you are to her! She is an absolute love bug! She loves a cuddle, being patted and brushed and being told just how pretty and what a good girl she is!

Due to her complete obliviousness to her size as well as the unpredictable nature of children, Stella would like to only go to a home with either no children or mature, calm, confident children over 12 years of age.
Stella made a list of her ideal furever home:
– an owner, couple or family who are committed to continuing her slow, gentle exposure to
the world as new things are a bit scary sometimes

– a home with not too much foot traffic and constant visitors as this is constantly unsettling
for her

– a large yard to expel all her zoomy energy as she will not be suited (at least straightaway) to dog parks and off leash play areas in case she gets scared and runs off

– a secure yard without access to under the house (where she has previously tried to escape and hide)

– a family that aren’t wanting to take her everywhere with them such as cafes and busy
walking areas – at least not initially, she may grow in confidence over time with this.

– Preferably no cats, although she is living with one at the moment, he barely tolerates her
constant sniffing of his butt!

– But the NUMBER 1 thing Stelly wants is a doggy friend.

For more information on Stella, please contact her foster carer Bec at [email protected], Stella is in foster care in Lake Macquarie, NSW. Her adoption fee is $400 which includes all up to date vet work. She is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and treated monthly for fleas and worms.

Max

Max

Meet Max ‘Max a million’, a 6-year-old handsome Maltese x Jack Russell, who loves nothing
more than to snuggle up on your lap for nice warm cuddles. Max is a confident young man, with a big personality, who is in foster care with many other dogs, both large and small. He likes being inside or outside, but prefers to be where his humans are, especially his foster mum, who he cuddles up next to of a night for bed. Companionship is high on Max’s priority list for his furever home, so it is important that his new family can provide him with the love and attention that he craves. Max loves to go for walks on the lead and sits on command. He has improved with his toilet training since coming into care, however, will need someone patient who is willing to continue his training. It took Max a little while to adjust to being left at home while his
foster parents are at work, but now that he knows they come home to him each day, he is a
much more relaxed boy when they leave. He has been enjoying life on the farm and is fine
with goats and chickens, however, does not want to be friends with the cats and likes to
chase them and bark at them.

Max’s forever family will need to love getting cuddles and having their laps warmed, as he is
an affectionate little man. He will need to be welcomed into the family home, as he will
want to be involved in every aspect of your life. Max currently lives with children who are 4
and 8 years old and adore him. He will need a secure fenced yard to keep him safe. Max is
ok with being left at home during work hours, but would love for his forever family to be
home more often than not, as he loves company.

For more information on Max, please contact his foster carer on their email
[email protected] Max is in foster care in Stroud, NSW and is available for adoption
interstate. Max’s adoption fee is $600, and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and
worms and microchipped.

Rolex

Rolex

Meet Rolex, a two-year-old, Poodle X. Rolex is full of fun. He loves walking twice a day for about half an hour each time and loves a game of chasies with your socks. He came to dog rescue because he had been in an apartment by himself most workdays, and his owner surrendered him because she felt he needed more company and stimulation.

He certainly does love people, dogs, and cats too! Rolex was quite fearful when he came into care, but he has really warmed up very well and is such a joy to have. He is very social and if he sees another dog or a person, he is so excited and will want to say hello and have a bit of a gossip and sniff.

Rolex likes to lay on the lounge, but not necessarily on your lap or right up against you. He will lay on the lounge apart from you but gets closer and closer as he has become familiar and confident. Because he has been in an apartment, he does like being inside, so is a good dog to have around the house if you don’t mind a shadow. He would sleep on your bed if you let him and loves activities.

The ideal home for Rolex would be one where there is another mature dog who can show him how to be a dog and play outside as well as inside. Ideally there would be more than one adult in the home, and possibly teenage children as he likes a busy life with lots of stimulation. He is a good guard dog whenever he hears the doorbell, but only because he is curious.

Rolex is toilet trained and can sit, stay and stop at the kerb when walking. He is good on the lead but walks quite quickly. He will wait until invited to come inside the door after a walk. He waits for the signal to eat. You could say he has very good manners!

However, please note that when Rolex first came into care, he was scared and confused, and this led him to exhibit some growling and nipping behaviour. This stopped within a week but is likely to occur for the first week or two of his transition to a new home. He needs to be able to dictate his level of contact as he becomes accustomed to a new environment and routines.

Therefore, he is not recommended for families with small children, who may not be able to give him the space he needs for the transition period. But if you are looking for a little pal to love and be loved by, then this may be your perfect match!

For more information on Rolex, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]. Rolex is in foster care in the Newcastle Region, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Rolex’s adoption fee is $700 which includes all up to date vet work. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Luna

Luna

Luna is 20kgs 5year old Shepherd X, who is looking for her forever home.

Luna is a love ball looking for someone who can take her along in their adventures. She is dog friendly and loves to run and play with all the furry friends she comes across. Luna loves her afternoon zoomies in the back yard and to play fetch. She loves her daily walks and is good on the leash, although does get distracted at times. Luna is a very active girl, and really loves to be out and active with her foster carer.

Luna is food motivated and has been learning basic training skills like sit, stay and lay down. She loves car rides and watching all the other cars go by. She rests her head on the seat, and just really enjoys being on the move and out and about.

Luna’s perfect home will be somewhere her ongoing training and exercise is priority as she loves to be stimulated, busy and thrives off adventures. Luna is best suited to a home with room to roam and high fencing, 5-6ft colourbond or similar. While she has been exposed to small children, she can be jumpy so a home with older children is best, 10yrs and over. Luna is a sweet and loveable girl, who thrives on being part of the family.

Yogi

Yogi

Greetings! I’m Yogi (as in the Bear). I’m lean and a little taller than your average Kelpie – apparently I also have some Catahoula in me. At just over 12 months old, I’m eager to please and ready to learn. I form a quick bond with my hoomans, and I’m super responsive when given clear, consistent directions. I just need someone to spend quality time with me so I can demonstrate what a clever and sweet boy I am. decent exercise sessions everyday – morning and afternoon. If you’re looking for a running buddy, I’m your guy! I’m built to run. I also love chasing and retrieving balls and running with other dogs at offleash parks. And when I’m not running, I’ll keep you company on the couch. If you’re not the running type, I’ll need two good ball throwing sessions or long walks every single day without fail – otherwise I’ll go a little stir crazy.

I’m happy to share your household with other dogs, even small ones – I’m currently boarding with 2 other canine buddies. I’ve never lived with a cat but I did meet one recently and it seemed ok to me – maybe I could share a house with a feline friend, particularly if it’s confident and likes to snuggle. I’m a social kinda guy – I’m not sure how well I’d cope on my own all day. I’m ok for short periods provided I’ve burnt up some of my youthful energy and I’m ready to relax for a bit. I’d be fine with older children (especially if they like tug-of-war and throwing balls!), but I may not be suitable for young children as I’m a bit unco and don’t know my own size.

Since being in foster care, I haven’t chewed or destroyed anything (apart from my doggy toys) and I haven’t dug any holes. Nor have I jumped the fence; but I can reach amazing heights, so I might try if I got really bored or lonely (I’ll need a high fence in case I’m ever tempted!). I always go to the toilet outside and I don’t feel the need to mark everything in sight like other canine dudes. I have excellent dinner manners – I sit and wait until I’ve been invited to eat; and I’m not fussy with food – I’ll lick the bowl dry within seconds. And if there are treats on offer, I will come sprinting back across the park, every time! While I can occasionally be a tad nervous meeting new dogs and hoomans, particularly if there’s any tension, it doesn’t take long for me to chillax – I probably just need more practise to build my confidence in new situations.

I haven’t had much lead training but I’m starting to understand what “heal” means and that I need to stick close and not pull. I forget sometimes and I’m pretty strong; however, I’m a very quick learner and will do anything for a treat! I prefer my hoomans to be the leaders, so I can take guidance from them and just be my happy, friendly, social self rather than trying to be an alpha dog. My perfect hooman is someone who understands this and makes me feel that they are always in control. I respond very well to positive reinforcement.. and of course lots of love!

Yogi is in foster care in Mayfield, NSW. He is available for adoption interstate. Yogi’s adoption fee is $500. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped. You can contact Yogi’s foster carer on their email [email protected] if you have any questions before submitting an adoption application.

Holly

Holly

Introducing Holly, super intelligent, adorable, confident little lady who wants nothing more than to be with you, her favourite person! Holly is an absolutely gorgeous 10- week-old ridgeback x boxer (Rhodesian Boxer). Holly is a playful, loving and very smart little lady. She loves her human foster siblings and is great with the cats and her little chihuahua playmate. She is very friendly and loves nothing more than to snuggle up for a cuddle. She would very much love a home with another dog or kids to keep her company with regular outings to the dog park or beaches.

This clever little girl is already mastering her basic commands after only days with her foster family. Her toilet training is coming along really well and her delight in being handed puppy biscuits as a reward will ensure she picks up many new tricks to impress you with. She is still very young, and we recommend puppy training or committed ongoing training to ensure these basics blossom into amazing manners as she gets older. She will be a medium to large dog and will require a home that will exercise her daily and provide activities that stimulate her curiosity and active nature. This gorgeous girl will be the most amazing loyal and loving life companion.

Holly is super loving and will take all of the cuddles you will give her. She loves to snuggle with the kids on the couch. For this reason, we are searching for a home that will allow her to be inside and outside. She will not suit being an only outdoor dog and has been enjoying the comforts of indoor lifestyle. Holly is learning to sleep in her crate at night and settles well as long as people are around.

Hollys perfect forever home would include:
– A nice big yard with at least 6ft fencing (colourbond or similar) with no small holes or gaps
– Children 5 years and over. Being young and active, Holly might be too much for little ones as she grows to her full size.
– A family, couple, or single who are active, outdoorsy and understand the requirements of having an active dog in the home.
– A nice warm place inside to sit with you at night and a cosy place for her crate near her people for her to sleep in

Holly will grow into quite a large dog, so please consider your circumstances both now and in the long term and do some research on what is involved in caring for, living with and training large dogs prior to submitting an application. Training is critical for Holly to grow into the best dog she can be. As a larger breed, the consequences of behavioural issues are bigger so you will need to commit to puppy training and ongoing socialisation and training using positive reinforcement to ensure they don’t develop.

Holly is a very responsive pup who is eager to please and easy to reward. Holly would love a home where she is not left alone too much so she doesn’t get lonely and stressed. Ideally her owner would be home most of the time and she would love a friendly adult dog as a teacher and playmate. She will need to be welcomed as a member of the family, with access to indoors and a big secure yard to run around in. She will need regular walks for exercise and mental stimulation.

For more information regarding this beautiful and intelligent little lady, please contact her foster carer at [email protected]. Holly is in foster care in the Central Coast, NSW. Holly’s adoption fee is $700.00 and covers her desexing and second vaccination. She has had her first vaccination and has been microchipped and treated for fleas and worms.

As Holly is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to residents of Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, and Port Stephens because she will need to be returned to our vet for desexing when she is five or six months old.

Stella

Stella

My name is Stella and I am a 10 month old beautiful black German Shepherd. I have lots of energy to burn. Ideally I would go to a home with experienced shepherd owners as they are able to continue my training! My carers say I have a beautiful nature and that I am very intelligent – I need lots of physical and mental stimulation. I am full of energy as shepherds can be! I am good with medium to large dogs and would love to have a playmate to burn some energy with. I am a strong girl who is progressing well with training on the lead. I stop at curbs and I have been learning to walk beside my carers. I also have been learning lots of tricks too. I can spin around, stay and come. I do get distracted at times though, hey we all do! My carers say that I am progressing well with my training and would love to continue to learn!

Now, I find cats way too interesting (not in a good way) so I won’t be suited to a household with any cats or other small animals. I love kids of all sizes but I am quite boisterous so small kids would likely get knocked over in my excitement. I really love kids though and have been playing around with my carers kids who I love so much. For more information on Stella, please contact her foster carer on their email [email protected]. Stella is in foster care in Newcastle, NSW. Stella’s adoption fee is $500 and includes all up to date vet work including microchipping, vaccinations, treatment for fleas, worms and the cost of her desexing as well.

Winnie

Winnie

I’m Winnie, I am a 4 months old Jack Russell x kelpie and I’m the cutest most loving girl, when I cuddle you we become one and when you see my ears they will make you smile.

I love to snuggle on the couch and I am learning about crate training for bed time. I love to play and wrestle with my foster sisters. Balls seem interesting but I don’t quite get the catch thing yet. I really love food, but I know I should sit first and I’m getting better every day at that. I’m having a go at shaking but I’m not quite sure if when I’m supposed to do it, apparently this looks really cute.

I am a puppy and I will need lots of training, but my love of food should make training reasonably easy. I am still working on toilet training. But I’m keen to please. My foster family have chickens in a pen and I haven’t shown them much interest.

I really love my humans, so I would love if they were home enough to enjoy me and take me for walks each day and play. If my family wasnt home most of the time I am going to need a home with a playmate and 6 foot fences. Unfortunately, rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire) is not suitable.)

For more information on Winnie, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected] . Winnie is in foster care in Ashtonfield, NSW. Her adoption fee is $700 which includes all up to date vet work.

Holly

Holly

Holly the 5 month old, Jack Russell pup is the dog her carer never knew they needed, untill she is sitting curled up on their lap. But do not be fooled, this little firecracker is as intensely devoted to her energetic puppy endeavours as she is to finding a warm place to snuggle. Holly has a sweet personality but when it’s play time, she is all go. She is a capable and agile jumper on furniture, kennels, window sills and any other dog/person/object in her flight path. She gets the zoomies and does full speed laps of the yard. She is also partial to digging for treasure if not supervised outside.

Holly is smart, can play fetch and is food motivated, which means training her will be easy. However, she is extremely timid with new people and will run away if you reach down to grab her. She is gaining confidence in her foster home, but her forever owner will need to put some time in with her initially to gain her trust. She has had no training prior to care, but she is learning to use pee pads inside.

Holly is joined at the hip to her big foster sister. She would desperately love to be rehomed with another dog, but that dog will have to be extremely tolerant of an annoying and energetic pup and young enough to want to play. Being able to tell her when enough is enough will also be important. Holly is often underfoot, so she needs owners who can manage that. She must be allowed to live inside as part of the family and if children are part of that deal, they must be old enough to be respectful of her little body and timid nature.

For more information on Holly, please contact her foster carer on their email [email protected]. Holly is in foster care in Salamander Bay, NSW. Holly’s adoption fee is $800 and includes all up to date vet work. This includes microchipping, vaccinations, treatment for fleas and worms and the cost of her desexing as well.

As Holly is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption in Sydney, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because she will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing.

Bonnie

Bonnie

Is your family looking for an affectionate furgirl to love? Then you need to run not walk to meet Bonnie. Bonnie is a loving, 7yr Old Cattle Dog X with a stunning brown and white coat. This placid and sweet girl is searching for the perfect home to share a lap with, and be the most amazing companion dog there ever was.

Bonnie, while very affectionate and loving, can be a little timid on first introductions. But once you have gained a little of her trust, your lap will never be cold again. She loves to be everywhere you are throughout the day, and would absolutely love to be a part of every facet of family life. She absolutely ADORES big raw hide bones, but doesn’t seem to be overly keen on toys. With your help, she will soon discover the joy of Tug “o” War or Fetch.

Bonnie would be best suited as an only pet, as she doesn’t have the confidence and experience around many other pets. She would suit a family where someone is home more often than not, and who understand that Bonnie is an inside dog, and must be allowed inside the home to spend those precious moments with you and her family. Perks for having a doggy door for Bonnie to use so she can let herself in and out when needed. She would not suit a home where people are away for many hours of the day consistently, and who do not like to have an inside dog. Bonnie walks well on the lead, but does require some more training when other dogs approach. We recommend engaging with a dog trainer to help Bonnie gain some confidence with other dogs and how to be happy and content walking past, near or with others.

Bonnie is good with kids, who are respectful of dogs, and keeps her feet on the ground. We feel she would be best suited to slightly older children 5years and over, with dog savvy children being highly preferrable. Bonnie will not suit households who like to go to the dog park, or large open areas with lots of other dogs. She will need further training and assistance in gaining her confidence and how to introduce herself properly to others.

Bonnie will require a few weeks to settle into her new family home. She is a life time commitment of 10-15years, so please consider your circumstances before considering applying. She deserves a forever, happy, loving home where she is welcomed and adored as she most certainly deserves to be.

Be sure to follow the link to submit an adoption application https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt so Bonnie can start her new adventure.

Bonnie is in foster care in Wallsend, NSW (Lake Macquarie) and her adoption fee is $450 which includes all up to date vet work. She is desexed, vaccinated and treated for fleas/worms. For more information or to enquire about anything not in her listing, please contact Bonnie’s foster carer Jaime via email: [email protected]

Nimbus

Nimbus

Meet fabulous Nimbus. Nimbus is a stunning 2.5yr old Japanese Spitz X searching for the perfect home. Are you a patient, kind person that Nimbus can rely on to feel loved and safe? If so, you’re about to fall head over heels for this stunning little girl.

Nimbus is a very special little girl. Although she can be a little timid to begin with, this little ball of glorious cuddles will soon be snuggling in with you and aiming for all of the loving pats and reassurance she can manage. Nimbus is a little nervous when it comes to big scary and overwhelming environments. For this reason, we are being super picky with her forever home, and the perfect place needs to be very understanding and experienced with dogs that have anxiety and need that little bit more lovin. When Nimbus feels safe with her family she’s very affectionate and wants to be everywhere that you are. She adores snuggling with you, getting plenty of pats and soft spoken words. She needs to be able to be where are you throughout the day and the evening to feel safe and loved. 

Nimbus needs a very quiet environment where she can feel safe and calm. This means she will need a home with no other pets and preferably no pets in surrounding yards that she can hear. The outside world is a little too overwhelming for this little soul, so her carer has developed a method of helping her through by having the TV on to help settle her.

Nimbus is not suited to homes where there is lots of hustle and bustle and surrounding noises. She requires a calm, quiet and very routine based home where she will be understood and find the assistance she needs to live a calm, and happy life. Nimbus would be best suited to retired single or couple, or a family with quiet older children, ideally over the age of 15years. She is OK with quiet, dog savvy children but will not suit young children as this will make her uncomfortable.

Nimbus is house trained and uses puppy pads as it is best to keep her inside away from the
outside noises that cause her to become anxious. Once she knows where her toileting place is she rarely has accidents.  She adores playing with soft toys, and will happily spend her days playing and amusing herself with her plethora of a toy library. Nimbus will often try to engage you in a game of tug-of-war or toy retrieval. This is a great way to help Nimbus expel excess energy and is very important every morning and in the early evening. It is also a super important element of bonding which we have found has brought her out of her shell to show her gorgeous personality.

Nimbus is very well trained and knows how to sit, come, drop, and a variety of other commands. Her intelligent nature means that she needs to keep busy so it is important to continue this training on a daily basis. As part of this daily training you will need to supply Nimbus with a variety of enrichment activities throughout the day. This keeps her mind enriched, busy and aids her in feeling calm. 

To ensure that Nimbus has a successful adoption you will need to commit to a transition process. This will include working with Nimbus’s foster carer to get to know Nimbus in her current environment so that we can successfully transition her together to her new environment. Due to this, Nimbus is only available for local adoption in the immediate Newcastle Region.

Nimbus is in foster care in Maryland, NSW (Newcastle) and her adoption fee is $700 which includes all up to date vet work. She is desexed, vaccinated and treated for fleas/worms. To be eligible to adopt Nimbus please submit an online application https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Bear

Bear

Hello, my name is Bear but my friends call me the Big Bear. I’m a soft cuddly dude who just
wants to be loved. I’m turning 6 this year but you’d never guess, I’m as playful as a pup!
Most people say I’m a Border Collie X (what – we are yet to find out… I have a DNA test on
the way).

I love all games, especially frisbee and tug-o-war. I’ve been enjoying going to training to get
more comfortable around other dogs and I’m even getting better walking on the leash. I
absolutely love food and will do just about any trick for a delicious snack. I can do basic
commands like sit, shake, lie, wait, eat, etc and I’m getting the grasp of agility training, once
I can figure out what my back legs are doing.

I love to be around you as much as possible, watching you go about your business, but I can
be an independent fella too as long as I feel included. I can be left alone for the day as long as I get plenty of attention when you’re home. I respectfully do not dig holes though my backyard zoomies have been known to knock down a seedling or two. I just love being at home with my humans and haven’t shown any interest in wandering off.

I get pretty anxious while driving, having my luscious locks washed and going to new places
but I’m brave and will jump in the car or dog wash without hesitation. I’m also pretty anxious
around most other dogs and am best kept on a leash in hairy situations.

I love humans in all shapes and sizes though I can get a bit over excited so am best
supervised around young and fragile humans. I’d be great company for a single person or
family with older kids and big yard to run around in but preferably no other pets. I’m fully
vaccinated and de-sexed.

For more information about Bear, please contact his foster carer at [email protected], or [email protected]

Bear is located in Mayfield NSW, and is available for interstate adoption. Bear’s adoption fee is $450 which includes all up to date vet work. He is microchipped, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms.

Jag

Jag

My name is Jag, I am a 10 week old boy Staffy puppy and I am looking for my forever home. I’m still a baby but I love to run and play with my brother and new foster doggy friends in a lovely big yard. I am a typical staffy pup, I love my people and I’m a big sooky babe. If you don’t like a doggy cuddles and kisses then don’t get me. I just want to play, lay on the lounge with you and be your best friend.

My brother and I love our toys and to play wrestle each other to see who wins the toy first before the chase begins. Jonas is faster but I think I am stronger, it’s totally funny when I pull him across the floor, Tug of war is one of our favourite games and if I win I run my little legs as fast as I can before my brother can take the toy back off me. As you can see we are both mega cute, I’m just a little fellow now but I will get to a nice medium size. I’ve got plenty of personality and a lovely easy going nature. I’ve even learnt to talk a bit, my foster mummy tells me to stop bossing her about but then I get my way cos she picks me up and gives me a snuggle, lol. I have just worked out how to bark, I don’t do it much but it gets my foster mum attention for a Pat.

We both have sweet personalities and don’t like being left alone for long periods of time or in a big yard all alone. We love playing outside and running around and we both love all the toys we have to play with. I love giving kisses the most and we are both doing really well with training too. We come when we are called, love you go to the toilet on the grass and are learning to drop too. My brother and I are sleeping together at the moment in a large crate and we are really good at it cos we only cry when we need to go to the toilet.

I like children, but my teeth are still a bit sharp, I’m going to be a medium size when I grow up and at the moment I zing around so fast I can trip children over so I think I should be adopted to a family with children over 8 years old, or someone that had a lovely companion for me to play with would be ideal as I love my foster play mates.

To know more about me, please email my foster mum Brooke at [email protected] I’m located in Cardiff Heights (suburb of Newcastle NSW). You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

As I am not yet desexed, I am only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens areas as I will need to be returned to our vet for desexing when I am approximately 5/6 months old. Exceptional Sydney based adoptions will only be considered upon approval. I am NOT available for long distance or interstate adoption.

My adoption fee is $700 includes all up to date vet work. This covers my desexing, vaccination, microchipping, flea and worming treatments.

Zero

Zero

Meet the darling little Zero. Just 3kg and recently turned 14 years young, Zero is a long
haired Jack Russell x who is in great health. This mature lady is looking for a special human companion to spend time with. Zero would love to sit and supervise while you work on the computer or in the garden during the day. She is also partial to a little bit of daytime TV on the couch. Her favourite place is on a blanket or doggy bed with a chew toy.

Zero is quite versatile as far as your yard and housing goes. She is housetrained and would be happy with a small court yard and would even suit a unit or townhouse. Certainly however she would suit someone who is laid back and not interested in running a marathon together. Zero is fine to be left in the yard playing with her foster siblings while you pop to the shops.
She currently has 4 fur siblings for company, and gets along really well with everybody. Zero
has not been tested with cats and would need a meet if you have a feline friend, however we
doubt this would be a problem.

At night Zero loves nothing more than to sleep on your bed. Currently she is set up at the end of her foster mums bed on her blanket where she will stay all night until you get up in the morning. Just wait until you see her sweet little routine where she will snuggle in and rub her face and head on the blanket… and it’s so sweet to watch. Zero loves everyone and would be fine with visits from kids. We just ask that they be supervised or of an age where they can be respectful of this little girls age and size. Typical of her breed, Zero will need some grooming for her longer hair. However regular brushing between visits keeps her long locks tidy. She enjoys a bath and brush so it’s a sweet and lovely thing to do together.

As for training – She will have you trained in no time. She is toilet trained and has had only
a few accidents in the new environment of her foster home. Honestly… It’s mostly that ladies
of a certain age don’t like to get their feet wet on soggy grass. Zero is the perfect little lap dog. She is not looking to go on huge walks, neighbourhood strolls are more her style. She enjoys a little bit of activity but would just be happy to be by your side. The vets have said that Zero is in good health. She will have a few teeth removed in early June before her adoption is finalised and may need a diet of soft food for a while until fully healed.

Zeros ideal forever family will be looking for a quiet, well-mannered lap dog. You may or
may not have other pets or a large yard, however she must be allowed to spend most of her
time inside with you, especially at night. You must also have an understand and commitment
to her grooming requirements. If you meet these requirements and would like to share your home with a beautiful senior then Zero is your little gal. 

To enquire or find out more, you can contact Zero’s foster carer Maka via email: [email protected]

Zero is in foster care in the Newcastle Region, NSW and is not available for adoption interstate. Zeros adoption fee is $250 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Zero please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Milly

Milly

Born deaf, Milly (nicknamed “Boo”) is a typical playful, cheeky, 4-month old Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog). She is incredibly gorgeous, but she will need a very special forever home that can provide the lifelong dedication and guidance she needs to not let her disability get in the way of life.

Highly food motivated, she has quickly mastered “sit. She’s also getting very good at recall, even from a moderate distance – as long as you have her direct attention and guarantee a food reward. All this in a few short weeks demonstrates that she’s intelligent and has the capacity to learning with clear, consistent hand signals. With regular, short sessions and lots of patience she’ll continue to progress, particularly under the guidance of an experienced trainer.

She walks nicely on leash – although she insists on being the leader when walking with other companions. A little shy at first with new doggy friends, she doesn’t take long to fire-up and move to hard-core play. Her lack of hearing does not impair her energy level or confidence. Early days, but she is showing signs of being a ball-fetcher and is very keen on water – but still learning to swim. In stealth mode, she’ll steal socks then dart off. She won’t hesitate to leap up or under furniture – almost cat-like. She’s a very inquisitive and fearless explorer – which can get her into trouble and put her in danger at times.

Two good exercise sessions every day will be needed to contain her energy level and allow her to focus on basic training. She’ll then switch to smooch mode and sleep at your feet for hours. After a busy day she loves to curl up and cuddle with you on the couch for some quiet TV time. Her best life will be with humans who are mostly at home and a doggy companion that is incredibly patient and mature enough to guide Milly by demonstrating acceptable behaviour. She can be very intense at play. Being deaf, she does not hear warnings to stop or slow down, so it’s vital that her fur- sibling has rock-solid resilience and tolerance.

She has not yet mastered toilet training, which is a work-in-progress. Very typical of a precocious toddler, she can be demanding and quite cheeky – she does not like being told “no” and sometimes barks in defiance. This calls for stellar patience at times but with a calm, non-reactive response she quickly learns that she won’t win at this game! It is imperative that her discipline comes from a controlled, composed and consistent approach, without any aggression or hostility.

As Milly is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because she will need to be returned to a DRN approved vet for desexing when she is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

Milly is in foster care in Mayfield, NSW. She is not available for adoption interstate. Milly’s adoption fee is $700 and she will need to be desexed at 6 months of age (included in the fee). She is vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.
You can contact Milly’s foster carer on their email [email protected] if you have any questions before submitting an adoption application.

Noodles

Noodles

If you truly, truly want to rescue a dog, then Noodles may just be the dog for you. Noodles
is a sweet, medium, short-haired Border Collie / Kelpie X who is approximately 1 years old.
Noodles is looking for love. He has not had a very happy start to life and is very timid
around humans. He has come from a place where he has been surrounded by other dogs
but has not been shown how to be a pet. He will need a family with lots of time and patience to show him that humans can be trusted. You can see that he is trying to trust his foster family as he smiles and wags his tail, but when you get too close, he retreats to the safety of his kennel.
He builds a little more trust every day.

He loves all food and treats, especially raw chicken legs and doggy sausage, but he’s
happy with anything and gets very excited when he sees someone coming with food. This
will be extremely valuable in assisting with his training and bonding to his new family.
At this stage he does not know how to walk on a lead so would need training in this area.
He has been practicing wearing his harness but still isn’t sure what this walking business is
all about.

He loves playing with his foster brother the Border Collie so a family with another playful
dog and a good-sized yard is essential. A doggy sibling would be extremely beneficial to
help him learn what being a dog is all about. Noodles prefers the company of another dog
and spending time with his humans. He will need a warm and secure kennel to feel safe, however once he has bonded with his forever family, would love to be welcomed inside.
Noodles loves to play with lots of different doggy toys to keep his mind active and is no
problem with kids or other pets.

He is a sweet, loveable boy who is ready to love a family of his own. He has been an
absolute pleasure to foster and is a very low-maintenance dog. Once you have his trust,
he will make a wonderful, loving companion. If you’d like some more information on Noodles, please email Allison at [email protected]
To register your interest in adopting Noodles, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire
here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Noodles is located in Mayfield NSW (suburb of Newcastle NSW). Noodles’ adoption fee is
$500 and this includes desexing, vaccinations, microchipping as well as flea/tick and worm
treatments.

Ginny

Ginny

Meet the sweet and adoring Ginny! She is full of love and affection, ready to give to a new family who can give the same back to her.

Ginny is a 1 year old Cattle X, who came into care as a very shy and scared girl from her previous living situation. Ginny has gained confidence in her foster home, and loves receiving pats and attention, and will give her little stumpy tail a wag to show you she’s happy. Ginny is still timid, and will need time and patience while she adjusts to new people and surroundings, and be allowed to come to you in her own time. Although she doesn’t take too long to come out of her shell and show you that beautiful smile!

She is a medium sized girl, although smaller than a normal sized Cattle dog. She is good with other dogs once properly introduced, as long as they aren’t in her face and understand her cues to give space. Ideally she would love a doggy companion in her new home that is mostly calm but happy for the occasional playtime. Ginny isn’t interested in toys, but loves a walk and she does so beautifully on a lead and harness. A short walk everyday would be great for her, and being allowed inside to be near her humans is important.

Ginny does have some separation anxiety, which is helped by having a doggy friend to be outside with while you are gone, and ideally someone who is at home at least part time. She would also do well with a retired person or couple that can give her lots of attention and a quiet home. A secure yard with no gaps and minimum 4ft fencing would be best.

Ginny is ok left outside, but does love the indoor life so she needs to be able to be inside to be around her family some of the day and sleep inside. She is scared of storms so needs a enclosed safe space to go (a kennel with blankets) if the weather is bad and she cannot be inside or access a doggy door. She stays on her bed all night, and she is mostly toilet trained (has only had a few accidents inside but she normally waits until she is let outside to toilet).

Ginny would be ok with children, as long as they understand that she does not like loud noises, needs space and does not always want to be touched and cuddled, so older kids would be best. She rarely barks, but can jump up sometimes when excited.

Her coat requires a regular brush down at home, but her grooming needs are minimal other than bathing and nail clipping as needed.

Ginny’s adoption fee is $500 which includes all up to date vet work. She is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. She is a healthy girl.

Ginny is located in Cameron Park NSW, and is available for adoption within NSW and ACT only. We encourage any questions or further enquiries to her carer at [email protected]

Dude

Dude

Dude by name and dude by nature. Dude is a happy go lucky 6-month-old blue Cattle Dog x Kelpie. I am looking for that really perfect home who will love me, cherish me and take me on all the outings.

For all my dude-like swagger, I’m actually a shy boy and a little timid until I get to know you. It takes me a while but once I do, you will have my undivided loyalty and adoration. I love to be around my humans and am known to follow my foster mum around the house like her shadow. My foster mum tells me that I’m a funny little boy, and she regularly laughs at my funny antics. I love making her happy, I love making everyone around me the happiest they could be.

I am house-trained and have been used to using a doggy door. I love to run around outside but do not like to be left out there while my humans are inside. For this reason its super important that I have a family who will allow me to come inside and outside with them. I wont suit a family who want an outdoor only doggo, as the creature comforts and being by your side is where I am most happy.

I have had basic training but this will need to be continued when I go to my new home so I can be the best doggo you ever knew. I have been learning to walk on lead but I get nervous if I see someone coming toward us and will stop until I feel safe again. My new family will need to be someone with working dog experience and have the patience, kindness and commitment to helping me overcome my insecurities about being out and about. I am a very willing doggo so it won’t take me long. I’ve been to the beach twice now and I run straight into the water to play fetch. My foster mum says it’s worth getting soaked herself when she showers me off because she knows how much fun I’ve had! More of these kinds of days would be the most amazing way to live.

I am currently living happily with an older dog and a cat. I’ve not been around children so my foster mum says I would be best suited to a home with no children under 5 years. As I am still a puppy, I can get very excited and may knock over a small child. I think I would fit in very nicely with an active family who enjoy trail walks, hiking and camping but I would not suit apartment living as I need a good-sized yard with secure fences. Ideally 6ft colourbond or similar with no holes or gaps.

If you’re looking for a loyal and loving boy who enjoys doing things with his family, sharing beach days and long walks together, then I am the Dude for you!

For more information on Dude, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected], Dude is in foster care in the Port Stephens Region, NSW and is available for adoption interstate subject to approval.

Dude’s adoption fee is $600 which includes all up to date vet work. He is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Dude please fill out the adoption application form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Buddy

Buddy

Buddy by name and Buddy by nature! This scruffy lovable larrikin is quite the character. Hes a dashingly handsome 2yr Old Wolfhound X. Not only is he a gorgeous brindle boy with a Mohawk running down his spine, he will captivate you with his crazy antics of running around the yard doing zoomies and when he stops he spins around! Besides all of these funny quirks he is also very smart, learns fast, and loves a pat and walk and if you are a runner he would make a great running partner.

Buddy is a smart young man that needs stimulus, exercise and ongoing training to encourage his development. He is a little toy obsessed and this is where he needs to work on his manners.

Since he came into the shelter our volunteers have watched Buddy change and grow from an anxious pup to a lovable young man. As much as we all love him and enjoy our time spent walking and training Buddy it’s time he find his family or best mate.

Buddy would be happy to have a dog best friend too. A friend who is as chilled as he is, who would happily nap with him throughout the day and go for zoomies in the yard.

This beautiful boy can be pretty easy going and relaxed, the only time he can get anxious is around black umbrellas and excitable small dogs, which his cowardly lion will often hide behind his carer for support.

He will need a well-fenced large yard to run in, to be allowed inside and to have the choice to sleep inside or outside on his own bed. Ideally he would suit a part time working family with older children, preferably teenagers.

This beautiful boy is very even-tempered, so if you are a previous dog owner, have a fairly active lifestyle, and a loving home to offer you will be rewarded with a loving companion.

We are open to a foster to adopt for the right fit. For more information on Buddy, please email [email protected] Buddy is in the Newcastle Area, NSW and is available for adoption interstate. Adoption fee is $400. Buddy is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Bonnie

Bonnie

Meet Bonnie, a beautiful black 8 year old Labrador x German Shepherd who loves to be relaxing near her humans and going on walks. Bonnie is a total sweetheart who will show you how excited she is to see you when you get home from work by doing a little happy dance and howling with delight!

When Bonnie came into care, she was separated from her long time doggy pal, but she adjusted quickly to her new home, and after a few weeks is happy to be either big spoon or little spoon of a nighttime with her senior fur foster brother. She is very gentle with him and has met lots of dogs without issue.

Bonnie loves people and despite being good with dogs, she would also be very happy soaking up all the love on her own. She loves being inside and would need to be welcome inside in her forever home. She is very well behaved inside and toilet trained.

Bonnie’s only real quirk is that she gets vocal to see other dogs when out on walks! We think she didn’t get out much in her earlier life so she just gets so excited to see them. She is fine when she meets them and this will calm down the more she gets used to being out and about. She walks pretty well on lead though can pull a little bit- again this will improve.

If she is with another dog, one with a similar temperament would suit her best. Bonnie loves a walk and can certainly keep up, but she can then be found crashed out for the rest of the day, so we don’t think she wants a playmate who wants to go go go all day.

Bonnie would be ok with kids but as she is approaching her senior years, a fairly calm home is her ideal.

Bonnie is toilet trained, sits and waits for her dinner, walks well on the lead, isn’t particularly interested in toys but will play a little chase game with you.

For more information on Bonnie please contact Michael at [email protected], you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Bonnie is currently in foster care in the Newcastle area NSW. Her adoption fee is $300, which includes all up to date vet work. She is de-sexed, vaccinated, flea/worm treated and microchipped.

Phantom

Phantom
Phantom

Meet Phantom, a gorgeous 9 week old boxer x staffy puppy. Phantom is a big puppy with a beautiful gentle nature. He is a happy, healthy boy who is growing and learning very quickly. He is very playful and loves a good wrestle with his brother. He is an energetic boy who loves to go out and play with his much bigger foster brothers.

He loves exploring in the garden, snuffling in the grass and playing with his little brother. He currently enjoys multiple naps during the day and will find a comfy spot anywhere to rest his eyes.

Phantom is a fast learner and has learnt very quickly to sit and wait for his food. Being a pup he can be a little jumpy and mouthy, and therefore would be best suited to a family with children over 10 years old.

Phantom will grow into a big dog (look at the size of those paws!), so please consider your circumstances both now and in the long term and do some research on what is involved in caring for, living with and training large dogs prior to submitting an application.

Phantom would love to have another adult dog for company who he can learn from, or will need a family with someone home more often than not.

Phantom loves his outside environment so please NO apartments or courtyard applications as he will be a larger dog so will need plenty of space. He will need good 5-6 foot fencing with no small gaps. NO Rural fencing will be considered.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established. This will ensure that you get the best family member/friend possible.

Phantom needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. He will be a wonderful family dog but may not be suitable for children under 10 years of age.

As Phantom is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a local vet for desexing when he is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

For more information please contact Sarah at [email protected]
Phantom is currently in foster care in Bonnells Bay, NSW (west Lake Macquarie NSW). To apply to adopt him, please complete the application here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Phantom’s adoption fee is $700 and includes his desexing, vaccinations and microchipping and he’s been treated for fleas and worms.

Ronnie

Ronnie

Meet the ravishing Ronnie. This gorgeous boy is a 10mo Wolfhound X. Ronnie is a bit of a character! This scruffy lovable puppy is just so cute with his striking black patches over his eyes, ears and a few splotches he has throughout his white coat. Ronnie loves to zoom around the yard and looks like a big ole goof ball. He also like to be a tad dramatic when he’s laying around and waiting for his walks. Besides all of these funny quirks he is also very smart, learns fast, and loves a pat and walk and as much attention as you can give him.

Ronnie is a smart puppy but needs stimulus, exercise and ongoing training to encourage his development. He is a little jumpy and nippy as all young pups are but is learning fast.

Ronnie would be great with an older dog to teach him the ropes but the other dog would need to be roughly his size or slightly bigger with a properly introduction

You will need a well fenced large yard to run in, to be allowed inside and to have the choice to sleep inside or outside on his own bed. Ideally he would suit a part time working family with older children, preferably teenagers.

This beautiful boy is very even tempered, so if you are a previous dog owner, have patience, have a fairly active life-style and a loving home to offer you will be rewarded with a loving companion.

We are open to a foster to adopt for the right fit. For more information on Ronnie please email [email protected] Ronnie is currently at the shelter in the Newcastle Area, NSW. Adoption fee is $500 which includes all up to date vet work. Ronnie is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Sasha

Sasha

Sasha is a 1 year old, super sweet and sassy Staffy x Kelpie. When she looks up at you with her doughy, puss-in-boots eyes it will melt your heart. She is an absolute sweetheart who will follow your every move around the house and then flop affectionately at your feet when you stop, just to be as close to you as possible.

She looourves every human she meets. Sasha’s Staffy physique means she is nuggety, yet lean. A very healthy looking girl, with a very shiny coat and bright, white teeth. At just over 40cm from floor to top of her shoulders, she’s a great size – not too big, not too small. And she certainly thinks she’s small enough to settle herself on your lap!

Her happy place is hanging with her humans getting as much affection as you can dish up. At every opportunity she will rest her head on your lap or your foot as she goes into the traditional ‘spatchcock’ doggy yoga pose within seconds (see video!).

A short video on Sasha: https://youtu.be/lXfToaT7y-I

She has a few things to work on, but she’s young, cluey and very eager to please. Her rapid adjustment to indoor life, the doggy door and toilet training during her first days in foster care demonstrate her adeptness to learn new things. She does pretty well on her “sit”, “stay” and “wait” (especially at meal time); and she’s very responsive to her name.

While she loves to play with other dogs, her anxiety and inexperience with other pooches is initially exhibited in a defensive, first-meeting response. It generally takes a few minutes for her defenses to drop and her fun, playfulness to shine. Any other dogs in the household need to be confident, calm and non- reactive to her juvenile nonsense. She won’t be a good match for another reactive, anxious or sensitive dog; and definitely not suited to living with cats and other pets. She’d cope being the only dog so long as she has constant company.

Given her strength, excitability and current level of training, she’s not
suitable for a family with young children. Approaching and passing vehicles trigger a need for her to chase and protect. Her foster carer has been working on this with very positive, daily improvement. This will need to continue so she can be just as adorable out on a busy street as she is snuggled on the couch.

While she has a reputation for scaling high fences and escaping, she has not made any attempts and has shown no interest to leap the standard height (1.5m) fences during her foster care. She will definitely need a home that can provide attention and affection under the guidance of a patient and experienced hooman – possibly with another calm and tolerant doggy as a leader and role model.

With a commitment to her ongoing training and work on her anxieties she will absolutely thrive and make the bestest, most loyal pooch ever.

Sasha is in foster care in Mayfield, NSW. She is not available for adoption interstate. Sasha’s adoption fee is $500 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

You can contact Sasha’s foster carer on their email [email protected] if you have any questions before submitting an adoption application.

Enzo

Enzo

Meet Enzo! Enzo is a 3-year-old pure bred German short haired pointer with a loving personality. He is a real clumsy sweetie. This lovely boy is best suited to a life with plenty of exercise and attention.

Enzo loves to run, swim and relax in the lounge room or in the backyard in the sun. He loves chasing balls and outdoor adventures!

Enzo thrives with human interaction and exercise. As with most German short haired pointers, he will do best welcome inside with his family, with plenty of mental and physical stimulation, and lots of snuggles.

Enzo can get quite excited so his manners are not perfect, but he is very trainable! He has been getting better at walking on lead but will need an owner who can commit to his ongoing training.

Enzo has lived most of his life with other dogs so would be suited to a well matched fur mate, or soaking up the attention on his own. He has no experience with cats. Enzo is better suited to no children or older children/ teenagers as his excited personality makes him quite boisterous.

As Enzo likes to be with people and won’t be suited to being left alone for long periods of time. He is currently an outside dog but will do much better being allowed inside with his family when they are home, so he will be looking for that in a forever home.
This handsome guy will be the perfect addition to an active home.

For more information on Enzo please contact Jenn at [email protected], you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Enzo is currently living in the Lake Macquarie area NSW. His adoption fee is $700, and he is already de-sexed, vaccinated, flea/worm treated and microchipped.

Pandora

Pandora

Pandora is a 4month old Wolfhound X Staffy girl pup who is now available for adoption. Pandora and her brother Onyx have been together from the beginning and love each other’s company so much, they are very sweet natured loving pups that it will be hard to part with such little gems. They are responding to their names, know how to come and are learning to sit. They have typical staffy energy, characteristics and playfulness. They really love their toys a lot so the more the better.

Pandora is a friendly, happy little girl who gets on really well with people and dog friends alike. She is the more outgoing and spritely of the pups, where her brother is more shy and reserved. Both Pandora and her brother Onyx love both indoor and outdoor environments, they are not overly fussed on loud noises, they do not bark very often and have really easy going natures. They enjoys games like tug of war and chase with their foster dogs but will quite happily have a snuggle or play in the yard with all the toys.

Pandora loves company and loves being around other dogs which is why we will be looking for a forever home with another medium sized companion dog for her to go with and a family that has some spare time during the week as she is still a pup and needs extra attention and training.

The pups loves their outside environment so please NO appartments or courtyard applications as they will be medium/big dogs (but not large) so will need plenty of space. They will need good fencing with no small gaps. NO Rural fencing will not be considered.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established. This will ensure that you get the best family member/friend possible.

Pandora needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. She will be a wonderful family dog but may not be suitable for children under 10 years of age.

As Pandora is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a local vet for desexing when she is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

Bundy

Bundy

Meet Bundy the 7 month old, tri coloured German Shepherd x Husky. Bundy is an outgoing, affectionate and loyal little companion who would make a lovely, pointy eared addition to your home. Bundy loves to play! He jumps out of bed each day striving to meet his daily step count and some. Once he’s had a good yawn, stretch, sniff and done a few laps of the yard, he likes to check up on his favourite toys and drink all of the water, occasionally with his paws! Bundy is a sweet boy who has a good temperament and a curious nature. He loves chasing insects and sticking his nose into things. He’s friendly, got a good sense of adventure and is very happy to put his harness on and go for a walk, drive or on a daytrip. When he’s worn out, Bundy loves a snuggle and will affectionately lay his head on your lap or plonk himself on the floor at your feet. He sleeps inside and doesn’t mind being the little spoon or resting his head on your pillow. All he wants is to be with you, with one eye on the front door and another on his foster brother. Bundy’s favourite time of the day is dinner time when his excitement level peaks at 10/10. He isn’t a fussy eater. He loves raw food, kibble and anything that comes from the treat jar. After Bundy gobbles up his food from his slow feeder, he typically races outside with the hopes of licking his brothers bowl. Honestly, we’re not sure where he puts it all! Bundy is lean (23kg), has a shiny Shepherd coat, a long tail with a white tip and white paws. He’s a handsome fella that’s parti eyed (one of his eyes is brown and blue) which we like to think reflects his youthful, fun loving personality. But he’s not just about the parties. Bundy has the world’s best hearing and doesn’t hesitate to assume his role of Chief Security Guard if he hears something he doesn’t like. While Bundy sits like a champion, he’ll require obedience training to teach him basic commands and finesse his approach to walking on a lead as he’s just a beginner. While he’s pretty good, he could also work on his manners around other dogs when it comes to feeding time and sharing his favourite toys. He’s reasonably well toilet trained (drinks too much), isn’t bothered by storms and doesn’t mind a bath, which is important as he has the husky double coat. Sometimes, he gives you a glimpse of the excited teenager in him by jumping up on new people, gnawing on your fingers, rebelling by digging a hole or voicing his big dog bark. Thankfully, he has the cutest moody child grumble you’ve ever heard. Bundy has no known health or medical conditions or allergies. Bundy’s pound days are behind him. He’s looking for his forever family who will be fun, outdoorsy and inclusive. His people will be present, welcome him into their home, invest in his training and love him as much as he loves them. Bundy has been living with a mature Husky x German Shepherd who has been a good match and big brother to him. He hasn’t been exposed to cats, other domestic pets or children. We anticipate he would fit well in a home with or without children and/or another dog, and that he’ll only improve as he settles in and begins to mature. Bundy’s yard will need to be secure, have a 6ft fence and be large enough that he can stretch his legs. For more information on Bundy (who also responds to Buddy), please contact his foster carer Lisa on [email protected] Bundy is in foster care in Maitland, NSW and is available for adoption interstate. Bundy’s adoption fee is $500 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Buster

Buster

Buster is a 4.5yr Old Kelpie X looking for a new forever best friend. He is an incredibly soft, gentle boy who loves nothing more than spending time with humans, whether he is following you around the yard or curling up next to you on the sofa. Buster will take some time settling into his new environment, so his new family will need to understand that he will require a quite home, with a lot of human company and daily repetition. This will help him learn to trust his new owner and allow him to settle comfortably. Buster has lived a sheltered life, having not had much exposure to the outside world, so actives such as going for walks, feeding time, and playing ball all require encouragement and patience. He does know how to sit, lay down and go to his crate when he is ready for a sleep. Buster requires a home with plenty of inside time and with older or no children as loud noises and sudden movements cause him to become startled easily. He is ok with other dogs but ideally he is best to be an only dog. Buster however does not like cats and is scared of them. When he is excited or nervous, he will walk around in circles as though he is unsure how to respond.

One of Buster loves is water, if you pull out the hose or sprinkler, he will play for hours chasing the water. He also loves a good belly rub. Once you have gained Buster’s trust, he will quickly become your best friend and loyal companion. Buster loves to go for walks however he can be very nervous when bicycles approach or cars driving past, so you will need to start with a quite area and walking distance from home with routine for first few weeks is recommendation. He is working on stop & wait before crossing the road. Buster is very chilled boy who loves just being by your side, snuggle up with you watching TV and being just around you. If you feel you can provide the right forever home for this beautiful boy and have plenty of time and love to give, please reach out. For more information on Buster please contact Matt at [email protected]m, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt Buster is currently living in the Newcastle Region NSW. His adoption fee is $500, and he is already de-sexed, vaccinated, flea/worm treated and microchipped.

Dexter

Dexter

It’s our absolute pleasure to introduce the worlds most loveable, adorable mischievous puppy in the world, Dexter. Dexter is a 10 week cattle dog cross that’s only mission in life is to play play play, love, sleep, eat and play play play. Dexters personality is huge and anyone that meets him is instantly captivated the second they look into his gorgeous eyes. Dexter is extremely affectionate and loves nothing more than snuggling hard on the lounge with anyone in the house. Since arriving into foster care with his gorgeous sister Meg, he has made everyone in the house fall in love with his antics and personality. Dexter is smart as a whip and is already asking please for his food and learning to sit, recall and walk on a lead. Dex has been an inside dog and is responding well to crate and toilet training. Dexter loves to explore the yard and wrestle with his sister and foster sister. Dex hasn’t had much exposure to walking on a lead as he has only had his first vaccination but responded well. Dexter has no issue with other dogs he has met and is very social although he is a little heavy handed when playing with the cat but responds well to being told no (apart from giving the big sad eyes) Dexter’s perfect home would have people around all the time as he loves the attention and will blossom with more training as he is super smart and energetic. Dex is great with kids although still a little nippy as you would expect from a 10 week old cattle dog. Dex loves to explore so will need solid fencing and would benefit from another dog to run amok with and learn the rules like he has with his older foster sister. Dex will bring pure happiness to any family that has the time to enjoy his massive personality. His eagerness to please and be with his people is pure love and joy. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established.

Dexter needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. He will be a wonderful family dog but may not be suitable for children under 10 years of age. As Dexter is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a local vet for desexing when he is approximately 5/6 months old. Please NO out of area applications. For more information on Dexter, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]. Dexter is in foster care in Cardiff NSW. Dex’s adoption fee is $700 which includes all up to date vet work, this includes vaccinations, microchipping and is treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.

Luna wasn’t toilet trained when she came into care and has been learning slowly however her toilet training will need to continue.

She is a little girl with a big attitude. Please note Luna has not been groomed in her life, her previous owners were unable to cut her.

Luna’s foster carers believe she would be a great addition to any family and a true companion and friend to all. Luna’s forever family will need to have secure fencing as she is very small and can fit through small gaps and holes. Luna gets along with other dogs and would love a companion or play friend however she has not been friendly towards any cats she has met and is not pocket pet friendly. Luna is an inside dog who will need to be welcomed into the house and family life, her toilet training will need to continue and will require patience and dedication from her new family.

Bud

Bud

Right here is the “best bud” you’ve been looking for. Bud is an affectionate, cuddly, playful and attentive 2 yo Cattle X with lots to learn and all the love to give. With mismatched ears, big hazel eyes and a fluffy tail, this boy is going to win you over the first time he crawls into your lap and buries his head under your arm. Bud loves to play with and chase his foster brother, explore the park and the beach and then sleep it all off wherever he falls.

Once you’ve earnt his trust, Bud will sit and come. He is toilet trained, house trained and can easily use a dog door. Bud would flourish in a formal training setting and will definitely need to work on basic commands once he’s settled in. He can be reactive to some noises in the form of alerting to them and sometimes barking at them, including letting you know if someone is at the front door, which is all expected given his age and level of training. Despite sounding mean sometimes, he is a gentle boy and hasn’t got an aggressive bone in his body.

Bud would suit any house where he gets back the love that he gives. He wants to be a loyal companion and spend time having fun, being active and living inside with you when you are home. He would be best having someone home all the time or, if being left at home with no people, having another doggo around for company and fun. Bud is fully grown but is strong and has a fair amount of energy. He would need a family that understands that he can get excited and sometimes also get scared of things but just needs the time and patience to be shown that these things that appear scary and new are ok. Bud would not suit very young children and would be best with children over 6 years old.

Bud is currently living in the Hunter Valley NSW. His adoption fee is $500, and he is de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea/worm treated and ready to meet his forever family!

Pumpkin

Pumpkin

This gorgeous girl is Pumpkin, 3 year old kelpie x. Pumpkin was rescued from a property where she lived tied to a chain, so she is still learning not to be nervous of the world around her- and who can blame her! With people, Pumkin is a little reserved at first but once she is comfortable with you she is so loving and gives lots of cuddles.

She loves nothing more to be with you snuggled up on the lounge watching tv or out playing tug / fetch. Whilst she loves to be with you she’ll often go off to do her own thing and come and check back in so she can be very independent.

Pumpkin is an active girl and would love to be your exercise buddy. Being nervous outside the home, pumpkin’s ideal exercise would be quiet areas, bushwalks and adventures. However, throwing the ball in the yard and training sessions tire her out easily too.

Pumpkin is fine on her own with full time workers, currently she is happy when set up with enrichment whenever possible (i.e. wobblers, good puzzles, kongs etc).

Although she has attended doggy daycare with other dogs and is fine for short periods, Pumpkin has not coped well living with another dog and needs to be an only dog in her new home.

She is scared of thunderstorms and loud noises such as fireworks but has medication that helps her during this.

She love any and all food which helps with training. She is crate trained and has her basic commands down pat.

This beautiful girl is looking to be the centre of your world.

For more information on Pumpkin please contact Jenn at [email protected], you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Pumpkin is currently living in the Newcastle Region NSW. Her adoption fee is $500, and she is already de-sexed, vaccinated, flea/worm treated and microchipped.

Jett

Jett

Jett loves his people and likes to follow you wherever you go, he needs to be welcomed inside to be with his family. He is a very playful and happy boy who is happy to chase you around or play with the ball or tug o war or laze around in a nice sunny spot, he is learning some basic commands and is working on his toilet training.

Jett is a very happy and healthy little puppy who has been well socialised with other puppies and adult dogs (small and large) and gets along well with them all. He’s met lots of people and is friendly and affectionate with them, he has been around cats, birds and chickens but isn’t sure of them.

Jett will grow up to be a large dog. We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All dogs and puppies need plenty of affection, exercise, and training. Jett will need a friendly adult dog as a teacher, companion and playmate as he would be too lonely on his own. It would also be good if someone was home more often then not as being a young pup he likes to be around people.

Jett needs to be welcome inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. He will be wonderful family dog and is suitable for children 8 years and older as he like to jump up. You need good fencing with no small gaps. He can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire).

Mazzy

Mazzy

? SPECIAL NEEDS: Please read in full before applying ?
Mazzy is a beautiful 4-year-old female Spoodle (Cocker Spaniel x Poodle). She is fun and playful and loves being surrounded by family, going on adventures, playing fetch and going for walks. She spends most of her time indoors but loves exploring the garden and laying in the sun.

Mazzy loves meeting new people on walks. She enjoys playing with dogs when out of her own house. She guards balls and sticks so she should not be off lead when there are group games of fetch happening.

She enjoyed training as a puppy and can behave well when not stressed. She really enjoys the attention and opportunity to earn rewards.

BEHAVIOURS
Mazzy has anxiety, and is on daily medication to help her. Her anxiety does not result in her being timid or shy. Her main issues are guarding belongings and behaving aggressively when she is stressed.

She often collects belongings (shoes, toys, pens, etc). Though she doesn’t chew them, she does guard them. She can get very stressed when she is approached while guarding and could bite if you persist in approaching her. While these situations can be challenging and frustrating, when managed correctly they can be diffused quite easily. She will generally trade the stolen item for a treat. She really does want to be a good girl. She just has this impulse to collect things then get protective over them.

When there are no items laying around to tempt her and she has nothing to guard, she is usually happy and relaxed.

She has a low shedding coat which needs regular brushing, bathing and clipping (every 6 to 8 weeks).

Mazzy is a beautiful, affectionate dog and is a pleasure to have around and we are absolutely heartbroken to be rehoming her. We wish we could keep her but her tendency to hoard and defend items requires careful management which is incompatible with young kids. Our life is busy with guests, trips away and a baby so we can no longer provides Mazzy with the calm, stable environment she needs.

Mazzy’s possessive behaviour has been present since she was about a year old and will not magically resolve when she moves to another home. But she can definitely be managed much better in a less busy environment.

IDEAL NEW HOME
Mazzy needs a calm and stable environment with people who will love her despite her behaviour challenges. She needs owner who will love her unconditionally. It’s important for Mazzy to feel safe at all times. She needs people who will always respond in a calm and gentle way and never get angry with her or punish her, no matter what.

She will be best suited to a quiet home and relaxed lifestyle. Her news owners will have a positive attitude, accept her quirks and be happy to work around her needs. Ideally her new owners will have some experience with challenging dogs and believe in a positive reinforcement approach.

She is not suited to a home with children under 16 or to live with other dogs.

She is fine home alone during work hours or equally happy if people are home more often.

Mazzy is on daily medication to help with her anxiety. Her new owners must be committed to keeping her on medication, possibly for the rest of her life, and consulting annually with a veterinarian. We will explain Mazzy’s behaviours in detail with full transparency.

We’re sure Mazzy will thrive in the right home and bring them much love and joy.

If you can give Mazzy the calm environment and understanding which she needs, please fill out our Adoption Questionnaire https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Mazzy is still with her family in Newcastle, NSW while DRN helps them find to the best home for her. Her adoption fee is $700. She is desexed, up to date with all vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick treatments etc. She recently had her annual vet check and is physically fit and healthy. She only available for adoption to NSW and ACT.

Maxi

Maxi

Meet Maxi, an extraordinary clever boy! Maxi loves cuddles, going for walks and playing fetch. Since coming into care with us, Maxi has learnt to sit, stay (some of the time), fetch a tennis ball and has decent recall. Maxi knows he is not to come inside our house and happily sits on the threshold.

Maxi hasn’t had a lot of experience walking on a leash, but after the initial excitement and a good sniff he will walk beside you quite well. Maxi gets excited when he meets new people/dogs and tends to jump up – this is being discouraged and will need to be worked on at his forever home. Maxi currently sleeps outside on his bed, but sometimes comes and sits inside with us if cold, raining or while watching TV.

Maxi’s forever family will need an active lifestyle and understand that he needs daily exercise and mental stimulation to prevent him getting bored and chewing. Maxi gets along really well with other dogs and would ideally be placed in a home with another dog to keep him company if his new family are full time workers.

Maxi has met some children aged 6 plus and was fine although very energetic and excited – younger children may find him too much. Maxi hasn’t tried to jump any fences, however if there are any gaps/opportunities to dig, he may be tempted to escape and explore the neighborhood.

For more information on Maxi, please contact his foster carer on [email protected] Maxi is in foster care in Newcastle, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Maxi’s adoption fee is $500 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas/worms and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Maxi, please fill out the adoption application form https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Marley

Marley

Marley is the biggest softy you will ever meet. This little lady is approx 5 month old Amstaff X.Love at first sight is true when you meet this little lady, as she greets you with a polite sit and demands you shake her hand. After that she flops down and presents her belly for some well deserved belly rubs. A fast favourite with her foster family who think she is just the best doggo.

As a smart little lady she is learning fast! She learnt her name in 2 days, Knows how to sit and shake on demand and is smashing out her other training such as food rejection, leave it, recall and the works. She is also completely toilet trained and can go the whole night without any accidents.
As a puppy she is quickly learning to be soft with her mouth, she knows how to gently take food and for her age has very little mouthing and responds well to gentle corrections. Still only a pup so would benefit from some training and socialisation to set her up for adulthood. A thought out puppy plan is a great way to help her and you become the best partner ship possible.

She is learning about the outside world and loves any human she meets and they love her back after she hits them with her adorable smile and a handshake. She would suit a house where the family are home more often than not or are willing to build her confidence at being home alone like any puppy her age. She would love an older friendly dog who she can play with during the day or sleep with during the night. She would also love to curl up with you in bed or on the couch and be apart of your day to day life.

A fully fenced secure fence (5-6ft) and one where she cant crawl under is a must, as she is a little curious about what’s happening on the other side. Untested with cats and great with kids!

If you’re ready for love at first belly rub then apply now! For more information or to meet Marley, please contact her foster carer Beth on their email [email protected]

Sheba

Sheba https://www.petrescue.com.au/listings/874427?utm_medium=card_link&utm_source=feed&utm_campaign=https://www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au/

This fluffy black teddy bear is Sheba, a 12 week old Tibetan Mastiff X that loves her cuddles, despite not fitting on your lap!

Sheba and her sister Cinder have been constantly handled and cuddled since they were teeny tiny.

They came into care at just 4 days old , bottle fed and kept nurtured. Now they are looking for their INDIVIDUAL forever homes with a big brother to help teach them. They love the company of their foster fursiblings.

Due to her guardian nature and potential size ( we’ll let you do the research on that ), guardian breed experience essential, especially through the puppy stage to maturity. We will not consider anyone who has no dog owning experience, no large breed experience and no guardian breed experience. We expect all new adopters to do their research on this breed to fully understand their requirements and the 15+year commitment they require.

Sheba is indeed ADORABLE now… but this little angel has the potential to make an undesirable mess if not given the right enrichment and training. Unfortunately no units, small yards or first time dog owners will be considered. She must be allowed to sleep inside or you will be up calling them inside for protecting your home at 1am.

She needs a COMMITMENT to a lot of human and animal interaction while young to ensure they receive the best start to being well rounded and amazing family dogs. This means trips to Bunnings , the beach , train stations, bus stops, NOT dog parks and always on a lead while learning. Due to their high commitment requirements, older children 12 + are preferred .

Early socialisation that continues throughout her life will help prevent her from becoming territorially aggressive (which is trademark of the breed, please do your research before applying for these pups)

Therefore she can not be left in the yard to raise herself while you are at work. This is not meant to be unfair to those that need to work, this is for the future well being of the dogs. There will be a better suited breed out there for you, if your lifestyle doesn’t suit these ladies.

Requirement-
A home with chilled MALE dog, secure / fully fenced yards, being 6ft colourbond fencing (no dog pens/ rural fencing or deteriorated pailing fences- she loves eating wood) and a comprehensive puppy plan will be highly regarded. We have one chance to give these girl the best start to the rest of her life, to make them the most valuable family member they can be and we aim to get it right.

As they are not yet desexed, Sheba and Cinder are only available for adoption to Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens as they’ll need to be returned to our vet for desexing when approximately 5-6 months old.

To apply, please complete the questionnaire and email [email protected] with information regarding your experience and puppy plan. We will only consider homes who have comprehensively discussed bringing a new puppy into their homes, and who fully understand the breed and their requirements.

Sheba and Cinder are located in the Newcastle Region NSW, and are not available for interstate or out of area adoption at this time. You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Sheba and Cinder’s adoption fee of $700 EACH includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping and treatment for fleas and worms.

Bambi

Bambi

This gorgeous girl is Bambi, an 18 month old Kelpie X. She is an affectionate, energetic yet timid pup looking for a family who will include her in all family activities as she loves her human company. A daily walk is not enough for Bambi who has energy to spare. She also needs a big back yard to run and play, as well as opportunities to expel her energy at places like the beach and off leash dog parks where she has good recall.

Typical of a Kelpie, she likes to play ‘bitey face’ with other dogs. Bambi can be quite reactive to other dogs when she is on the lead and training will need to continued in this area. Once she has made friends with another dog, she loves to play chasing and will do so for ages. She also enjoys chew toys, pigs ears and is learning about enrichment toys that contain yummy treats ( these were quite scary to begin with).

Bambi can become anxious if left alone for long periods of time. For that reason she will need to go to a family where someone is home most of the time or there is another compatible dog for company. When people are home she needs to be able to be inside and happily curls up at your feet or next to you on the lounge if allowed. Crate training has been started but she still much prefers to sleep on the end of your bed. She is house trained. She is also very smart and very responsive to food rewards.

Bambi would benefit from being with a quiet and calm family as she does not respond well to loud noises and gets very nervous if she thinks she’s done something wrong. Her forever family also need to be committed to continuing her training and who understand that she will need exercise and mental stimulation. Her forever home will need secure fencing with no areas that could be dug underneath. While she doesn’t show any signs of wanting to escape, she does bark at other dogs passing by.

For more information or to meet Bambi, please contact her foster carer Cara on their email [email protected], you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Bambi is in foster care in Floraville, NSW. Bambi’s adoption fee is $500 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, and microchipped. You can see all our available dogs at www dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Henry

Henry

Meet Henry at 1 year 4 months he’s as Jack Russell as a Jack Russell could be. He loves attention, being busy and then relaxing on your lap to regenerate and do it all again.

Henry loves to play fetch, he will play fetch for as long as you will. He thinks it’s a fun challenge to try and get all his toys in his mouth at once so he doesn’t have to share them with his foster sister. Henry has the endless energy expected with a JRT, he runs circles around his foster cattle dog sister, he will need a good variety of toys. Henry is excited by walks, he needs this time twice a day to sniff and explore and burn off some energy. After all this is done he loves to snuggle up and cuddle on your lap.

Since coming to live with us Henry has show us he can sit and wait for his dinner. He knows his name and comes most of the time. Walking is great fun for Henry and he can still pull on a lead, especially if something smells good. So continued walk training will be needed. He is learning to come and sit on his mat and go to his mat when redirected. Redirecting by putting hands near Henry’s face can lead to him nipping. Henry can jump quite high and will jump to get what he wants.

Henry’s toilet trained and uses the dog door. He will bark to chat to the neighbours dogs and let you know if someone is passing. Redirecting with going to his mat is helping. When the day is done Henry curls up with his blankets in his room.

Henry forever home will be with someone experienced with Jack Russell Terriers, not someone who wants to experience a Jack Russel Terrier (please don’t apply if you have not owned A Jack Russel and do not know the breed and all there quirks). He needs to be part of the family and be in the home with his humans when they are home. His yard will have 5 foot fences and plenty of room to play ball. (Unfortunately, rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire) is not suitable.)

Due to his jumping and occasional nipping his family won’t have children under 15. He currently lives with chickens in a fenced pen. He does think they are very exciting but he has not tried to jump their fence.

With Henry’s energy levels he needs to live with another dog that loves to play with him. He has never been regularly left for extended periods so needs a furever home where someone is home most of the time.

For more information or to meet Henry, please contact his foster carer on their email [email protected]

Bigoo

Bigoo

Hi, my name is Bigoo. I am a 4 year old Kelpie X. I am a big boy who loves spending time with my new foster family. At first I was a bit nervous coming into care but now my foster dad and I are best friends.

My favourite things to do are chasing balls, going on walks, getting belly rubs and protecting the yard from birds who come to visit. I also like to relax, lay out in the sun and cuddle up to my foster family. I am a pretty chilled dude once I get to you know you. I am toilet trained, know how to sit, shake hands, stay and other basic commands.

While I am a great doggo there is a couple of things you need to know:

– I love bones and pigs ears, I sometimes save them for later and find a special place to hide them in the back yard (underground whoops) my foster dad is currently working with me on this.
– I can be quite nervous when I meet new people and do not like to be patted on the head by strangers, once I get to know you I will want pats all day. I am just protective of my space and will come to you when I feel safe. Please understand that I do want to get to know, you just have to give me time and be patient with me. I need a family that will let me come to them when I’m ready and understand that I can be weary of new surroundings and can act out of fear. My foster dad is working with me on this, and now that I know I can trust him we are the best of friends.
– I am more suited to people with previous experience with rescue dogs and I’ll also need to go to a family with kids over 12. I live with my foster sister now (12), I wasn’t sure of her at first but now we are besties.

My foster dad has said that I am a very smart and an awesome boy and that I am going to make my new family the happiest ever. I have so much love to give and if you are looking for a new best friend, I am your doggo.

Chuck

Chuck

Chuck is a beautiful 9.5 year old Great Dane X Mastiff. He is a gentle giant who loves nothing more than a cuddle. Chuck is looking for a loving forever home where he can spend his senior years relaxing and being spoilt! Chuck knows basic commands such as sit, stay, and lay down. He loves shaking your hand, especially when there is food involved!

Although Chuck loves to laze around in the sun, he also loves a walk! He goes for a half hour walk everyday, and would probably go further if his humans could keep up! Chuck is a big boy (at around 60kgs), so needs someone who can handle him on the lead when he gets excited for his walks.

Chuck would be best suited to a home with no young children, as he sometimes forgets his size and loves cuddling up close for a pat! He is also needing a home with no other dogs, so he can just relax and enjoy his senior years. Chuck is untested with cats and pocket pets.

Chuck would prefer someone to be home most of the time (even after lockdown). He also requires sturdy 5 foot fencing, as he is a big boy and gets excited when he sees other dogs and people outside. Currently Chuck is not house trained.

Please only apply for Chuck if you have:
– no young children (ages 10 and over)
– no other dogs
– sturdy, 5-6 foot colourbond fencing with no gaps or holes. Rural fencing will not be accepted
– someone home most of the day (including after lockdown!)

Chuck is a distinguished older gentleman who enjoys the finer things in life. He deserves a dedicated and loving home for him to enjoy his twilight years surrounded by all the love and cuddles we can award him. He would love a home where he is welcomed inside and to share the comforts of a warm and loving home. Chuck will not suit an outdoor only dog home, as we feel he deserves much better than that. Chuck is a dog who has so much love to give, and deserves a perfect forever home where he feels comfortable and loved by his humans.

Please consider your circumstances after lockdown, as we are wanting his forever home to be just that. We ask that you review your lifestyle and acknowledge the commitment it takes to bring a new dog into your home. Due to lockdown, we cannot offer interstate adoptions at this time.

For more information, please contact his foster carer Zoe at [email protected]
Chuck is in foster care in Adamstown, NSW. You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Jensen

Jensen

Hi, my name is Jensen, and I am a big beautiful 3-year-old greyhound.

I have been described as a loveable goofball with a giant heart.

I absolutely love attention, cuddles, and pats. I can sometimes forget my size and will try to sit in between my foster parents in bed for extra cuddles at night which they think is very cute.

At nighttime I sleep in a dog bed inside with 3 other Greyhounds who I get along great with. In the morning and throughout the day I like to stretch out and sunbake outside.

I love to play. I like to do zoomies in the back yard, play fetch and play with all my toys. I will normally engage in playtime once or twice a day for 10-15 minutes.

I get very excited when the leads are brought out for walk time. I will need a confident person who is able to handle my size whilst walking as I can find all the sights and smells very interesting. I also get very animated when I see small or fluffy animals; so, I will need to be kept on the leash. I also love to run. My foster dad takes me for a 2km run a few days a week.

I love my food. I will let the humans know if they are late for breakfast or dinner by “talking” to them. I have been fed separately from the others during mealtimes so I can take my time enjoying my food. I also love getting treats and will keep myself entertained with various food puzzles and food filled toys.

I am great with my toilet training. I will wait to be let into the yard when I need to go. I can usually hold on for 4-6 hours if I am home alone.

I am best suited as an indoor dog with access to the backyard for an active individual or family who are willing to give me the exercise, love, and affection I need.

I would love to go to a family who has a dog my size or larger who will play with me and keep me company. Due to my size, I would be best suited to a family with kids 12+ who will not be knocked over when I lean into them for pats.

My new family must have no small dogs, cats, or pocket pets.

Yogi

Yogi Bear

About Yogi ? Cocker Spaniel, 2yo boy

Yogi is a 2yo, purebred Cocker Spaniel ?. He is a very affectionate young boy who wants to be inside with his family as much as possible. He is a great cuddler and loves to snuggle up with you on the couch. ?

Yogi Bear likes things to chew, especially bones ? and squeaky stuffed toys. He isn’t a nuisance barker. He loves going for walks. I take him for a 20 to 30-minute walk in the morning and the afternoon and he is happy to hang out with you the rest of the time. He needs to have a grassy yard to explore so he isn’t suited to apartment or villa living. ?

Yogi didn’t have any training before coming into foster carer, other than “sit”. I’ve been working with him and I’m very impressed at how eager he is to learn and work with me. I’m teaching him to lie down, stay, come and walk on lead and he is learning very quickly. He is an absolute joy to teach.

Yogi is very much an inside boy. He is housetrained and can use a doggy door.

He is fine left at home alone inside for a few hours at a time but not all day. So, we’re looking for a home where there is someone home most of the time (no full-time workers).

Yogi has a beautiful, soft coat which requires some maintenance. ? His coat sheds and needs daily brushing, regular bathing and occasional clipping to maintain the typical cocker spaniel appearance. He is small for his breed and weighs approximately 10kgs.

Yogi is very good with children but he isn’t suited to a busy household with children under 16. He likes small visitors, but might jump on them. He hasn’t been tested with cats. Yogi is good with other dogs and could live with another dog, so long as they’re not jealous of Yogi getting lots of attention.

Yogi was surrendered to Dog Rescue Newcastle because his family didn’t have enough time for him. His birthday is 13/09/2019, so he’ll be two in a few weeks. He is a young, active and healthy little boy.

✅Summary. Yogi is seeking a home with:
* A couple or single person with lots of time to give him attention and training.
* Ideal age range would be between 40 and 65 years old.
* No children under 16.
* No other dog or just one placid dog.
* Grassy backyard (no apartments or villas).
* Can provide a daily walk and mental stimulation (training, toys, etc).
* Someone who is home a lot, who will make him a big part of their lives; to love him, play with him, train him, and snuggle with him. ?

Yogi is in foster care in Charlestown, NSW (Lake Macquarie, south of Newcastle). ⭐️He is available for adoption within NSW, but not to Sydney due to the COVID-19 situation. Yogi’s adoption fee is $800 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas, worms, vet checked, and microchipped.

? If you would like Yogi to be your loyal companion, we need you to please fill out our Adoption Questionnaire https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Lucky

Lucky

Meet loveable Lucky. Lucky is a 7 month old Maremma. He is a very relaxed, happy, friendly and sweet big boy who will melt your heart with his gorgeous smile. He loves children, adults and animals. He is looking for his forever home.

Lucky is a livestock guardian dog and although these dogs can do great in a suburban environment, they thrive in a rural environment with stock to protect. He is very typical of a rural Maremma and is only suitable for a rural property. He is currently in foster care with 4 other Maremmas, a Border Collie, and a Kelpie, and he gets along fine with them and would prefer not to be alone. He is currently resource guarding the food, but we are working on this with him, and he is improving every day.

Lucky has been introduced to sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and horses. Although he is still very young, he is showing positive guardian traits. In time he will be a great asset to your livestock guardian crew. He is standoffish until he gets to know you, then he’s there beside you for cuddles and hugs, or just to walk with you. He is happy to sleep either outdoors or indoors. He’s really good on a lead and enjoys walks. As with any young Maremma, he needs to be in a securely fenced area until he is old enough to stay with his stock.

Lucky is a very typical Maremma, so please do not apply if you do not know the breed, and please be aware that he will not be able to go to a home where the yard is a typical suburban block, as this is not at all enough for a working dog. If Lucky sounds like your pawfect match, please fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt or for more information please contact Kristy at [email protected]

Lucky’s adoption fee is $700. He is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, and been treated for fleas and worms. Lucky currently lives in Eagleton NSW

Maxxi

Maxxi

Maxxi is an 11 month old, male, German Short Haired Pointer X. He is an adventurous, active bundle of fun. Maxxi enjoys off-leash activity preferably twice per day and loves introducing himself to any human or dog that he sees.

Maxxi is well trained and sits when asked and is great on a lead. He is also house trained and is great in the house when humans are with him. He is a very strong dog and requires a confident person to guide him. Once Maxxi has had his morning gallop, he loves nothing more than lounging and being a couch potato until someone picks up the lead again. He is happiest when out in the open and exploring and would love a family with a large backyard.

Maxxi’s love for human’s is also a bit of a issue. Maxxi does get quite anxious when not sitting with (or on) his human counterpart and can get upset when he cannot see his humans. He would be suited to a home where someone is at home working and his anxiety would be lessened if there was another dog for company.

Maxxi is an adorable dog and still in his puppy phase. He would really love to have a dog friend to share in the fun.

Maxxi is an assisted adoption and will stay with his owner until his new home is found. His new family will need to be experienced with this breed and be prepared to cater for his high energy needs. He will not be suitable for a home with young children due to his boisterous, protective nature. He is also best suited to a home without cats or birds.

If you would like any more information please email [email protected] or complete an adoption application. Maxxi is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Maxxi is located in Newcastle, NSW. His adoption fee is $500 and all his vet work is up to date.

Tiny and Tilly

Tiny & Tilly

Meet the gorgeous Tiny and Tilly. They are a super cute pair of poochies who are searching for their forever homes. Tiny and Tilly are Foxy and Mini Foxy who are 12years young. This super vibrant pair of pups have been living it up with our amazing foster carers, who now believe its their time to shine and find their pawfect forever home.

Tiny (male) is the super cute chestnut and white fellow with those “fall in love with me” eyes. This little guy absolutely loves people and will want to be your best friend the second he meets you. He certainly enjoys the finer things in life and absolutely loves his walks and outings as well as lounging in the sun napping the days away. Tiny is fully house trained and is an inside dog.

Tilly (female) is the darker brown and white pooch shown in the photos. Due to her size and nickname (Mini), she can take a little longer too warm to people and dogs as well. Like Tiny, she enjoys short walks, lying in the sun during the day, and lying on the lounge in the evenings. Tilly is also toilet trained and is an inside dog. Both Tiny and Tilly are very independent and can be left alone throughout the day. The most exciting part of the day is coming home to this gorgeous pair as they make you feel as though youve been gone for years!

Being predominantly inside dogs throughout their lives, homes that follow this way of life will be highly desireable. Although being inside dogs, its important that they have a space outside also to enjoy the sun and laze about, so only homes with a secure fenced yard will be considered. Being slightly older, we would also prefer a home with slightly older dog savvy children 10yrs and over.

Tiny and Tilly have been exposed to cats and do not seem phased by their presence. We would encourage slow and steady introductions to allow both parties time to settle and introduce properly. Both Tiny and Tilly get along with other dogs well, so would suit a home with another dog already living within the home. We will conduct a meet and greet prior to adoption to ensure friendships are made in a positive and encouraging manner.

For more information please contact Troy on [email protected]
Tiny and Tilly are currently in foster care in Kurri Kurri NSW (west of Newcastle NSW). To apply to adopt Tiny and Tilly, please complete the application here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Tiny and Tilly are being listed as a bonded pair and will not be seperated at this stage. Their adoption fee is $750 and includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping. They have been treated for fleas and worms.

Nova

Nova

Nova is a 5 year old Staffy x Kelpie. She absolutely adores her humans. There is no such thing as too many cuddles for this girl! Nova has a very loving and affectionate personality. She also loves little people and playing with her furry sister. As common for her breed, Nova has some anxiety problems. But don’t panic! Nova is quite happy as long as she has company – who can judge her. For this reason it is essential, that Nova’s forever home has a friend for her, preferably her own size. In her perfect home, her humans are at home with her most of the time to spend loving time with her bonding and playing. Her perfect humans would be especially interested in getting to know her and how to best manage her anxiety, as with the right tools, anxiety can be worked on.

Nova has had basic training and has very good manners, but we are looking for a home with dedicated owners to continue ongoing training. She is a clever and affectionate girl, so we are sure she would learn fast. Nova is looking for a home where she is welcome inside and is treated as part of the family. She also won’t mind human siblings, and loves to play with her current foster family’s children. She won’t be suited to a home with cats or pocket pets.

In summary, Nova is looking for a home where she is treated like a family member who are willing to give her another chance. She would be best suited to a family with another dog who have experience with or are open about learning about anxiety and positive reinforcement training. It’s important to note that with all new dogs entering a new family and environment that they require some time to settle and adjust to their new surroundings. We suggest spending the first couple of months bonding with Nova and honing in on those amazing personality traits that make her so amazing. Once this is perfected, it’s time to show her the surrounding world. She will love the time being spent with her and this will allow her the best chances at being the best doggo she can be.

To register your interest in adopting Nova, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt or for more information please contact Charlotte at [email protected] Nova’s adoption fee is $450 and she is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, and she’s been treated for fleas and worms. Nova currently lives in Medowie NSW and is available to approved interstate adoption.

Pixie

Pixie

Meet Pixie – a 2 year old Mini Aussie Shepherd. She is on the tiny side at 8kg and very sweet. Pixie loves to stomp around the house collecting socks and toys. She is crate trained and toilet trained. Pixie needs a home with women (adults) only. Pixie does not do well with men and children as she is quite scared of both, and a household with men and small children will not be considered.

Pixie does well with medium and large dogs. Pixie does not do well with cats or small dogs as she can get a little bossy.Pixie has been returned to DRN for the above reasons of suitability, and therefore unfortunately homes with the above can’t be considered for adoption. Enquiries or applications which include men or small children will unfortunately not be answered to and will not be taken further in the process. Pixie is a stunning girl, and very popular with families, however we must outline these very specific requirements for her benefit. We do so in her best interest.

For more information about Pixie or to enquire please email Brigid on [email protected]
If you are a single lady, or couple without children and wanting a new best friend, please send through an online application https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Please allow our carers 48-72hours to respond to enquiries and suitable applications.

Adoption fee is $600, Pixie is desexed, vaccinated, and treated for fleas, ticks and worms.
Currently in foster care in Cardiff NSW.

Stanley

Stanley

Mr Stanley is waiting for his pawfect forever home to come and sweep him off his feet. This devoted and handsome young man wants nothing more than to share all his big gorgeous love with you. Are you missing a Stanley sized hole in your life? Meet Stanley a 4-year-old Male boxer. Stanley is the gentlest soul. He loves chilling whether it be inside or outside as long as he is with his family doing what they are doing or close by sitting on his bed watching.

His favourite is relaxing by the warm firepit with his family. He must be included in activities, he will definitely need a home where he is allowed inside. He loves all humans and loves to cuddle and snuggle as much as possible. He is very sweet boy and just wants to be loved, feel safe and to show his love to his forever family. He is sensitive boy and not very confident, so he needs a patient, gentle relaxed home. Stanley is suited as an only dog in an experienced dog owner home, so he can be the centre of attention and build his confidence and trust back up.


Stanley has recently undergone emergency surgery after being surrendered, due to lack of appropriate care, he suffers from Solar Dermatitis on his belly and will need a responsible owner who can treat as recommended by their vet, limit sun exposure, apply dog friendly sunscreen before heading into the sun and regular baths to maintain hygiene with gentle shampoos and conditioners as vet recommended.
Stanley is currently untested with children and other pets of any size, for this reason he would be suited to adult only home with no other pets. Stanley is very good with basic commands, sit, stay, and eat. Being an excited boxer may need to be supervised and possibly on a lead inside initially while learning the rules of his new home. Being a boxer Stanley molts quite a bit, so you must be willing to deal with this.

Stanley originated from acreage, so on walks he gets very easily excited and will pull on lead as he has never be taught. Even though Stanley’s training is progressing well he will need a strong person to walk him. Stanley is reactive to humans and other dogs on lead when he is out for a walk, he will pull and bark, but he has not shown any aggression, just overly excited to get to them and say hello. Stanley will require ongoing training and commitment to improve his lead manners and socialisation skills. You must be a patient dog experienced person who can calm his over excited behaviour in a positive way. Stanley has no recall due to getting over excited, so will need to be on lead 100% of the time when out of his yard/ home.
Please only apply if you can commit to giving him a loving dedicated forever home where he is part of the family and treasured because he so deserves it.

To register your interest in adopting Stanley, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt he is currently in foster care in Wangi Wangi, Lake Macquarie and his adoption fee is $500 and this includes desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and microchipping.

Angie

Angie

Angie is a bubbly 5yr old female English Staffy X Mini Foxy. She is a black and white dog of a smaller stature. Angie weighs about 14 kg so is on the smaller side of being a medium dog. Angie is a very lively and active dog so is best suited to a family with children over 12. She will need a family committed to her ongoing training. Angie has basic commands in place, needing guidance with her excitability. This family will be adored by Angie. She thrives on the company of people and will follow you around.

Angie was very well toilet trained when she came into care. She has still not had any accidents inside the house. Being allowed inside with the family is very important for Angie. She enjoys playing with toys however if there are pats available, she will choose those over the toy! Angie would be more appropriate as an only dog although a calm male dog companion may work. Angie tends to clash with female dogs. Angie walks well on the lead and is OK when she sees other dogs out in public. A daily walk would enable Angie to expel the extra energy she has like most young foxy breeds. She does tend to walk with a bit of speed.

Angie is fine outside during the day with toys and a fresh bone to keep her mind engaged. She’s not good with cats so making sure you have a yard she can’t see out of is important. Angie loves to chill out with the family on the lounge and be included in family activities when you are home.

Angie is in foster care in Wallsend, NSW (Lake Macquarie). For more information or to meet
Angie, please contact Jaime by email [email protected] and submit an online application.

treated for fleas and wormed.

Chuck

https://www.petrescue.com.au/listings/856385?utm_medium=card_link&utm_source=feed&utm_campaign=https://www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au/

Meet Chuck! Chuck is a 5 month old Cattle dog x Staffy. My foster mumma says I’m the sweetest boy! She’s probably right, I’ve really nailed the puppy dog eyes and head tilt thing and have you seen these ears? Chuck lives with two foster sisters who are cats!! I really like them but sometimes I get a bit excited and try to round them up and maybe chase them but I’m only playing. I like to play with my dog mates too I’m a bit nervous when I first meet them but then it’s all rough and tumble, super fun.

My foster mum is teaching me to play fetch and I’m pretty good I bring the ball back and everything! I like to go for walks but I’m easily distracted and still learning, walking in a straight line is tough sometimes but I always hear I’m the goodest boy so I must be getting it right most of the time. I like to sleep in my crate in my foster mummas room and I snuggle in all night. I need a home that’s going to help me with my ongoing training, confidence and socialisation (that’s what mumma says). I like to be with my family and I worry at first when you leave me but after a while I just play with my toys. Foster mumma leaves me games to play and I’m really clever at them.

I’m living in Glendale at the moment but I can’t wait to move in with you. If you want to talk to my foster mumma Kerry about me you need to fill in the application form and send it to her emails [email protected]

Prudence

Prudence

Prudence is a 9 week old beautiful tan with a blackface Mastiff x, female pup who is available for adoption. She is a friendly natured, sweet loving girl. Both her and her sister Scarlett (pictured here and who is also up for adoption) have been quiet pups with easy going personalities. She gets on well with other dogs and is use to both inside and outside environments in which to run and play in so will need access to both of these with her new home.

Prudence loves company, cuddles and tug of war games with her sister but will quite happily snuggle up on your lap also, she loves her outside environment so please NO appartments or courtyard applications as she will be a medium to large dog so will need plenty of space.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established. This will ensure that you get the best family member/friend possible.

Prudence would like a companion dog to go home with but is open to someone that made play dates or park visits if there is not already a dog at home. If there was no companion then a family that is home more often that not would be preferable. She really loves her toys and plays with them and her sister that she is in care with a lot, a little sandpit to dig would also be wonderful as the one they have now they love. She is currently living with other foster dogs and puppies so is use to having friends to play with.

Prudence needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to sleep inside at least until fully grown. She will be a wonderful family dog but will not be suitable for children under 10 years of age. She will need good fencing with no small gaps. NO Rural fencing will be considered.

As Prue is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because she will need to be returned to a local vet for desexing when she is approximately 5 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

For more information please contact Brooke on [email protected]

Prudence is currently in foster care at Glendale NSW (suburb of Newcastle NSW). To apply to adopt me, please complete the application here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Her adoption fee is $600 and includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping and she has been treated for fleas and worms.

Nymeria

Nymeria

Nymeria (a game of thrones name – sounds like “Nigeria” but with an M) is a gorgeous 4yr old Kelpie X Wolfhound. This gorgeous girl is a very loyal companion. She loves a tickle and always wants to be up on the sofa having a cuddle! She likes laying in the sun and in our home has a favourite spot where she can look out the window at the world. She is most happiest when she is near her humans when they are home, but she is very relaxed when they are out at work and spends the day snoozing.

Nymeria is fully house trained and has no interest in escaping the yard. She loves spending her days lazing around the house but enjoys a long walk once a day. She sleeps perfectly at night (indoors) and has only barked once or twice possibly when she has heard something outside. She barks once when she wants to come inside the house but doesn’t react when other neighbourhood dogs bark.

She is a large dog and is lead reactive to other dogs, so she needs someone committed to her ongoing training and guidance. She has met with a friends dogs several times and is getting used to being around them, heightened and excited for the first few minutes but then settling in. She is quite good on the lead, but she does pull a little and being a big dog you will need to have a certain level of strength. She can jump with excitement when meeting new people but will quickly calm down if you remind her! And it’s only to say hi!

She has to be picked up to put her in the bath and she stands very still, she’s not a fan of the hose or sprinkler though. She loves playing with humans but isn’t very interested in toys or balls. She was unsure of a neighbour’s cat at first and there was barking and running around wanting to play, but she has got used to him now and they even snooze together in the sunshine so we have seen great progress there.

She is great with kids- currently living with a one year old and three year old and loves them, greeting them with kisses and enjoys going for walks to pick them up from daycare and likes to say hi to the other kids through the fence! She is just not always aware of her size and although doesn’t jump up at the kids she can get excited and quickly run past them without being aware. Although she loves the kids, when they are around she seems more anxious to get the adults attention and will often try and get in between mum and child when putting shoes on etc and wants to be number 1. She does seem more relaxed when the kids aren’t around, but they are very young so perhaps she would be better suited to slightly older kids, although there really aren’t any major concerns.

If your looking for a loyal companion and a big softie, then this lovely girl will fit in with your family perfectly. To find out more about this pawfect pooch please contact Kimberly on [email protected]
To register your interest in adopting Nymeria, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Brandy & Rusty

Brandy & Rusty

Brandy and Rusty are oldies but goodies… these gorgeous babes are a bonded pair of small, senior dogs. Think ying yang, best friends forever, a loveable tag team. These two are still looking for their forever home, a few potential adoptions have fallen through at no fault of the pooches. But we have discovered that they are not suitable for a home with a lot of stairs. Please help us help these gorgeous ones & share their adoption listing, it maybe that your neighbour is lonely & looking for four legged love.

Brandy is a 10 year old Yorkshire terrier. She is a happy, friendly, active little dog who enjoys pats and spending time with you. Rusty is a 9 year old Jack Russell cross. He is also a happy, affectionate dog. Being older dogs, they are quite content just keeping you company at home and would be best suited to an adult home with no other pets.

They’re very content to be outside on their own but more than happy to soak up love and cuddles. These two have spent the majority of their life as outdoor dogs. They’re very happy to come inside but we are still working on the house training.

If you have room in your heart and your home for 2 senior dogs with a lot of life & love to give, please get in touch. Please not that Brandy and Rusty are a bonded pair and are not available for adoption seperately.

Maisey

Maisey

Maisey is a brown and white 5mth old female Bull Arab x Mastiff and this gorgeous girl is going to make someone a very loyal companion. She is always keen for attention and gives loads of puppy kisses. She has learnt to sit and is getting used to walking on the lead.

Maisey is very adventurous and will try to steal your shoes while putting them on. She is going to be a very large dog so she needs someone committed to her ongoing training and guidance. She is wary when meeting new people but once she gets a pat you have won her over.

Maisey is not house trained yet and occasionally has an accident so vigilance inside is needed. She is easy to bath in the shower but is scared of the hose. She loves playtime, balls, toys and food.

Maisey has been vaccinated and has to wait until after she is 6mths to be desexed, so she will need to be returned to our vet for that procedure. Not tested with other dogs as she lives with her sister and they are big boisterous pups so have not had the opportunity to test with other dogs. She currently sleeps outside and spends most of her time outdoors.

If your looking for a loyal companion to mould to suit you look no further that this lovely girl. To register your interest in adopting Maisey, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt or for more information please contact Abigail at [email protected]

Maisey’s adoption fee is $500 and she is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, and she’s been treated for fleas and worms. Maisey currently lives in Maryland NSW.

Skippy and Rocky


Skippy & Rocky

Meet Rocky and Skippy the 8 year old Male Jack Russell’s with the waggling tails. These happy boys are looking for their forever homes due to no fault of their own. Having always been together it would be lovely to be rehomed together too however consideration will be given to separate for the ideal home.

Both Rocky and Skippy have spent their life outside so would love a home with a daily walking buddy, a gardening companion or someone looking for an adorable coffee date while they sit on your lap in the sunshine.

Rocky is the cuddly lap dog of the pair while Skippy gets great joy from fetching a ball for you and bringing it back. Going for a walk is a daily highlight as they love to get pats from all the neighbours on the way but most importantly have a good sniff, so a slow stroll is fine by them sometimes too.

At night they sleep quietly in their crate outside but it would be lovely if their crate was allowed inside, especially on those colder nights. If looking for an inside dog you may need lots of patience as Rocky and Skippy are not currently toilet trained so a cuddle on the couch is the closest we have had in our foster home so far.

We would suggest a home with Children over 6 as they do jump with excitement to see you as well as some not so polite gestures which we hope may settle slightly after desexing but someone who loves them regardless would be their best home.

Rocky and Skippy are currently living in care at Salamander Bay with 2 young children and an older large breed dog and have been comfortable in their company. Unfortunately they are untested with cats or pocket pets at this stage.

Rocky and Skippy will be available for adoption after the 26th of April when vet work is complete.

To adopt this gorgeous pair, please fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt
Alternatively, if you have any other questions regarding these two handsome lads, then please contact their foster carer Haidee on [email protected]

Rocky and Skippy’s adoption fee is $450 EACH. Please contact Haidee if you wish to discuss adoption as a bonded pair. This includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping , she has also been treated for worms, fleas and ticks.

Evie

About Evie ~ Staffy X Puppy

Would you like to be the happy ending to a puppies story? Once upon a time there were 10 puppies. At about 2 weeks old these puppies came into DRN after their mum ran out of milk to feed them.

At DRN they found 3 fairy foster mums who spent lots of time bottle feeding, loving and caring for them. Even those these fairy foster mums did everything they could, 3 of these babies grew early wings and left in their first week of care.

The other 7 babies battled on. Having very low immune systems they fought off stomach, skin & bone infections & with the dedication of their fairy foster mums & DRN vets are now ready for adoption.

They are strong & playful pups but are very precious to their fairy foster parents so will need homes where their new families understand that diet & environment are essential to their future health & wellbeing

Evie is a 10 week old staffy x pup who is now available for adoption. She gets on well with other dogs and is use to both inside and outside environments in which to run and play in so will need access to both. As she has been closely hand raised in a home environment, she may need someone home more often than not.

Evie loves human company, She will quite happily snuggle up on your lap, but she also loves her outside environment so please no appartment or courtyard applications as she will be a medium to large dog so will need plenty of space.

We always recommend puppy-training classes to give your new family member the best start in life. All puppies will need plenty of affection, exercise, and training to ensure proper boundaries and routines are established. This will ensure that you get the best family member/friend possible.

Evie will be needing another medium sized doggy friend as a teacher, companion and playmate to go home with. Because of her difficult beginning we will be looking for companions dogs that are not loud, bossy or overly boisterous but more quiet and gentle in nature. She is currently living with other foster dogs and puppies so she is use to having friends to play with.

Evie needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to also sleep inside at night. She will be a wonderful family dog but will not be suitable for children under 12 years of age. Good sturdy fencing is a must, rural fencing will not be considered.

Hooch

Hooch

Hooch is a male Boxer X Mastiff mix who is around 9 weeks old. This boy has a lovely placid nature and loves the company of both dogs and people of all ages. He currently lives with 7 other puppies, a very energetic 1year old medium size dog who he adores and an older medium size dog who is teaching him manners. He’ll quite often take himself away from the action for some quiet time.

There are also kids in her current foster home and he behaves very well with them (apart from pinching toys to get their attention). In his perfect home he will need to have another dog who is patient as well as someone who has the time to train him and give him lots of snuggles. He would also suit a family who are home for often than not as an only dog. He’s going to be medium to large size boy so it is very important that her forever family are going to accommodate this in their home and lives.

Hooch is a very clever boy and is learning easily to sit, wait & toilet in the appropriate places so ongoing dedication to keep up with this training is essential as smart dogs like her can tend to become naughty without the correct training and stimulation. Hooch needs to be welcomed inside when people are home, and to also sleep inside at night. He will be a wonderful family dog but will not be suitable for children under 5 years of age. Good sturdy fencing is a must..

As Hooch is not yet desexed, he is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to a local vet for desexing when he is approximately 5 months old. Please NO out of area applications.

Harlow

Harlow

Meet Harlow, a 1yr old female Mastiff X. Harlow is a super good doggo and is looking for a new family of her very own. Harlow is an active girl but also appreciates that she needs her beauty sleep so naps are a favourite for me. Like the love heart on her ear, she has plenty of love to give and really enjoys a cuddle. She’s currently lives with a 7yr old child and a 7yr old staffy who she gets along with really well. She would love a doggo companion in her new home who will play with her and keep her company. In my foster home there is a 7yr old staffy who has taught her the ways of the house hold. How to go in and out of the dog door when she needs to use the bathroom. She has also taught her when its bedtime and when to settle down for the night. They’ve been sharing from a dry kibble bowl and we can eat our food next to each other without any issue.

She would be suited to a family with children over the age of 7yrs old who would like playing tug of war with me and my rope toys. I’m chasing an active outdoorsy family who will have fun playing with me and don’t mind if I accidentally get too excited. Being young still my long legs sometimes trip me up. I like to be inside during the night and don’t mind a cuddle on the lounge but am also happy to lie on a bed next to the lounge. I do like being outside during the day, soaking up the sun and playing with a ball or my rope toys.

Her foster home also has a pool and she’s been paying fetch and swimming laps. She does this for half hour each day to get my exercise. This also heaps wear her out so I sleep through the night without wandering.

She’s not the best at walking on a lead as she just wants to eat it and run around. She’s been training with her foster carer and I am better walking alone then with other people as I just want to constantly be watching what they are doing or racing to be beside everyone. My new family does need to understand she’s still a puppy and need more guidance on being the best doggo out and about. A family with experience and a commitment to her ongoing training would be most preferable.

If you’re an active family looking for an amazing active and happy girl to join your family, you can contact my super amazing foster carer Alora on [email protected]

Harlow is located in Dora Creek NSW (south of Newcastle NSW). To adopt me please fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Harlow’s adoption fee is $400. This includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping , she has also been treated for worms, fleas and ticks.

Honey

Honey

Introducing Honey ?a 2 year old Great dane x. This sweet, gorgeous goof ball of a lady is looking for her forever home. She is looking for an active family with older kids to help with her expel some serious big puppy energy. Honey is not dog social at this time but some positive reinforcement training will help her.

Honey is understandably excited to go on walks, this coupled with her size makes her very strong on lead. Large breed experience is essential, absolutely no first timers. Honey must be included as part of the family to continue learning boundaries, critical for a 50kg girl. Honey is making progress but still wants to jump up on you when very excited.

Somebody committed to extensive training, no other dogs, cats or pocket pets. An active home that can stimulate her physically and mentally. Honey loves to play tug of war, play ball and chasey! She also loves human interaction and would love nothing more than to be close to you, especially in bed – if you’ll let her! Telling honey to get out of the kitchen turns her into the happy character from happy feet. Honey is a beautiful girl with a beautiful temperament who wants nothing more than to make you her world.

‼️Must haves ‼️

* No other animals
* Big breed experience
* Commitment to physical and mental enrichment
* Older children that don’t mind being bowled over

Special Requirements: Honey has had very little training, but is very smart. She needs someone to put in the time to train her using positive reinforcement.

To find out more about our gorgeous Honey please email Kelly on [email protected]. Honey is located in the Newcastle NSW Area. You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Honey’s adoption fee is $400. This includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping , he has also been treated for worms, fleas and ticks.

Frazer

Frazer

Frazer is a little tsunami in the body of an 8 year old Basenji x Chihuahua. He’s got a cute as a button face but don’t judge a book by its cover as this little gem is as rough as they come!

We’ll cut to the chase here and say that Frazer can be a little like Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde – once he knows you and your home he will be as sweet as sugar however he can struggle with certain situations one of the primary ones being getting out of cars. Frazer loves getting in the car, enjoys driving around – but turns into Cujo if you try to get him out of the car. Frazer has had some trauma related to getting out of the car and will become quite frenzied when asked to leave the car (no matter what treats and kindness are used!). He currently travels in the car within a dog crate so that he can be removed safely contained at the end of a drive – he requires someone with patience and compassion to work on this trigger of his.

Frazer needs boundaries and consistency – he also needs a very specific home with someone who is empathetic with him and his history and won’t judge him for being quite a handful at times. He will howl or cry if left alone so requires a home where there is someone home a fair amount.

He needs a furever home with a couple (40 – 60 years, no children), a home where he can have his own safe place in the house or yard if visitors come over and he feels anxious. He is getting so much better at meeting new people however a busy house is not great for Frazer as it revs him up. He needs a yard to run around in and solid fencing that he can’t see through (as he loves to bark) .

To complicate things a little more dear little Frazer doesn’t like other dogs much (he has not had much socialisation prior to coming into foster care) so he enjoys barking at them (a lot!). His new humans will need to be experienced enough to work on his dog and car reactivity, and should only use positive and reward-based training techniques with him. If people are gruff or forceful with him he will stand his ground and show his absolute displeasure! He loves treats so the key to this little guys affection is high-value food rewards.

Frazer is a special boy who has had a tough trot in life , but with the right human he has shown us that he has the potential to be a great and loving little dog.

If you are very experienced with the not-so easy dogs then please email Jo on [email protected] . Frazer is located in Medowie (North of Newcastle). You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Frazer’s adoption fee is $350. This includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping , he has also been treated for worms, fleas and ticks.

Emma

Emma

Meet the perfect Emma. Emma is a 3.5yr old Bull Arab X who is super loyal, loves her humans and has a beautiful loving nature. She is now searching for her furever home and is super excited to meet her pawfect family.

Emma is a super sweet and loving girl. She loves to get out and about and enjoy walks and outings with her foster family. Emma does need some training on walking and how to be the best doggo out and about so a family with experience with this would be most preferred. She is a strong dog, so does require a strong active person to help her in her journey to perfection.

Whilst Emma just loves being around people, she can be left at home alone with a good bone and some treats and toys to keep her amused till she greets you excitedly when you come home. At home Emma obeys basic commands such as sit ,stay and come and settles down after her initial excitement of coming inside. Shes a super smart poochie with so much love to give.

Emma does not appear to have been socialised with other dogs and has strong reactions when passing or nearing other dogs particularly small ones. Her forever home adopters would need to commit to training and socialisation strategies to be able to walk in areas where other dogs are present. Once again, a home with previous experience and very strong commitment to training will be highly desireable.

Emma is best suited to an active family as an only dog. Being an exciteable girl, Emma does not suit homes with small children so children aged 10 and above would be best suited. This will also allow them to be involved in her training and learning. Its very important that her new family are active and understanding of Emmas needs and will not pressure her into new and unfamiliar experiences too soon. She will require some training and work with her new humans to ensure she is bonded and listening like the good girl she is.

Emma will require a secure large fenced yard to be at her happiest. She will require 6ft colourbond fencing with no holes or gaps. Rural or mesh fencing will not be suitable. Emma has not been tested with pocket pets, livestock or chickens/birds.

Emma is a stunning girl looking for her forever home. If you love someone who will cuddle all day and be your best friend, then Emma is your girl! If you think Emma is your perfect match, you can contact David on [email protected] for any questions or enquiries.
Emma is located in Corlette NSW (north of Newcastle NSW)

To apply to adopt Emma, fill out the adoption form here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt
Once submitted, please allow 48-72hrs for a response from our dedicated carers.

Emma’s adoption fee is $300, she is microchipped, desexed, and vaccinated, and she is up to date with all worming and flea treatment.

Max

Max

Calling out to the Kelpie lovers………This strikingly handsome boy is Max, a 1.5yo Kelpie in search of the perfect home; one that is familiar, experienced and willing to take on all that comes with a working breed.

Max is a very clever boy, who is very quick at learning and eager to please, but still needs some guidance and reassurance. He has a fair amount of energy, so regular exercise, play time and mental stimulation are needed, because he is a typical working breed. Dog Rescue Newcastle did bust him out from a rural pound and given some of the traits he shows, it is possible that Max was to be used as a working dog on a farm. He came in a little scared and timid, with little trust in humans and has come a long way since but will still need a confident and reassuring person to build that trust and continue to let him shine.

Max does like dogs and is currently living with an older male dog, whom he adores, but his working breed instincts are quite strong and when they are out and about walking, Max decides that it is his given right to protect the other dog and he becomes quite unsociable and fixated.

Max walks well on a lead and has been learning proper leash manners, which helps with his social behaviour. He is highly food motivated, which helps with his training. He is a typical high energy kelpie and as mentioned will need physical and mental exercise but is also happy to be a lounge lizard once he has had his exercise. He absolutely loves people and will greet all humans of all ages and sizes with a big smile and wriggly bottom. He has been around toddlers without any dramas.

Max is full of character and will bring you joy as you watch him. He will entertain himself with his toys but does love to play tug-o-war with you. He hasn’t been destructive but, Max is an intelligent, high drive dog, so if he gets ignored and bored too often, there is a good chance he will.

For more information on Max please contact Olivia on [email protected] or you can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://form.jotform.co/82217742684866
Max is currently living in the Newcastle Area NSW.

Max’s adoption fee is $500 and includes desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and microchipping. You can see all our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Willow

Meet Willow, a female, 10 week old Kelpie x Cattle dog with enough energy to compete with the energiser bunny!

Willow is an independent little fluff ball, that requires a family to look further past her cute puppy stage and plan for the teenager and adult stage.

She will grow up to be a medium size and will need to attend puppy training classes and continued obedience training due to her size and breed.

Willow is at the puppy stage where she is biting a lot and chewing things so she needs consistency in her training. She is looking for a family that understands she will need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation or she will get bored.

She won’t be a tiny puppy for long and will get up to mischief as she becomes a teenager. She will also need extra puppy meals throughout the day?

Willow will also require a home with solid and tall fencing (5-6 foot) to keep her safe? No rural or wire fences as she has springs in her legs. She won’t suit an apartment , courtyards or a small yard and will need need a medium to large yard to play and rumble in!

As Willow is not yet desexed, she is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens areas as I will need to be returned to the vet for desexing when she is approximately 5 months old. She is not available for long distance or interstate adoption.

If you’re interested in adopting this absolutely sensational little pupper, you can fill out the adoption questionnaire at https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt or for more information not covered in the listing, please contact Kelly at [email protected]

Willow is currently living in Glendale and her adoption fee is $600 which covers desexing, vaccination, microchipping, flea and worming treatments. You can see all available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Lucy

Meet the most adorable little girl, Lucy! This gorgeous loving and gentle girl is a 2yr old Kelpie X Jack Russel. This pint sized ball of cute adores a snuggle and loves to play fetch in the yard.

Lucy has some gorgeous quirks, one is the most hilarious noise she makes while chasing her favourite toys. She loves her food and isn’t fussy at all. She’s exceptionally playful and has shown to be obedient when called.

Lucy would suit an active family who will continue to further her education and ensure her tricks and skills are enhanced. She has shown to be a little worried when you leave, so a home with experience in encouraging Lucy to be confident when alone will be most favourable. She can sometimes be a little overwhelmed when meeting new people, and will always let you know when someone is at the door. Again, a home with the knowledge to encourage positive reaction would be the best fit for miss Lucy. She travels well in the car but will require further guidance when out and about on the lead. She is exceptionally dog and child friendly however due to her age, she will not be rehomed to a family with children under the age of 10years old.

Lucy will require an active family who will continue to involve her in their daily lives. She will not suit a backyard only home and must be allowed inside to bond and be with her family for those important times. Kelpie’s are a very loyal breed and love to bond and mesh with their families. This girl loves attention and adoration, so we must find her the perfect home where all of these elements come together. Lucy is fully house-trained and will make the perfect companion.

For more information on Lucy or to enquire, please contact Nicole on [email protected] 

Emma & Charlie (Bonded Pair)

Meet the two unlikely best friends Emma and Charlie. This beautiful bonded pair are everything you need to complete your fur-baby family. Having lived together for most of their lives, they love each other to pieces and will need to be rehomed together.

Emma and Charlie love to play together, spoon each other during naptime and give each other lots of kisses. Yes, it is as cute as it sounds! They never fight, always share their food and take lots of comfort in each other’s company. They have shown their foster mums they are not destructive when left inside for short periods of time and they are both house trained, although Charlie may have some accidents for the first few week in a new home while he is settling in and feeling a little anxious. They will happily spend time outside and are not prone to jumping/ escaping, but would like to be welcomed inside (especially of a night time). Both dogs are quite fussy with their meal choice, tending to prefer certain brands of wet food mixed with some dry.

Emma is a 2 Y.O Staffy X who loves nothing more than to greet you with a big smile and sloppy kisses at the door. Emma is a gentle soul who will give you cuddles on the couch but is also happy to take herself off to her own bed with her favourite chew toy. Emma is playful and has short active periods throughout the day. She loves to play fetch, run around in the backyard and chew on her chew toys. Emma also loves the water and would love to be able to swim at the beach or lakes. Emma knows basic commands and can sit, stay, come and lay down. She walks well on the lead but can be overexcited at times. Emma needs regular walks to prevent boredom and will often sleep for long periods of the day if exercised regularly.

Charlie is a 2 Y.O Chihuahua X. A typical lap dog, Charlie loves nothing more than curling up next to you for endless pats and cuddles. Charlie takes his time to get to know new people. Once you have gained his trust he will show you unconditional love. Also typical of his breed, Charlie can be protective of his home and his humans and may bark at unfamiliar faces and dogs. When going on walks, they can both be reactive to other dogs, so it is best to give them a wide berth and encourage them to keep walking.

Emma can be strong on the lead, but we have found that walking them separately can be helpful, being walked together seems to turn into a competition of who goes first, but separately they both walk more calmly with less pulling. Emma & Charlie aren’t the kind of dogs to be let off lead for social interaction with other dogs. They tend to prefer the company of humans and each other. Any interactions with new dogs would need to be very slow and in a controlled environment. Emma & Charlie would benefit from a new family who will set boundaries for them, with a relatively structured routine.

They are both in good health, don’t require much grooming and are quite low- medium energy and maintenance. Both Charlie and Emma need a home where they will be the only dogs. They would love nothing more than to become part of the family and would be best suited to a home without small children, cats or other small animals. Having access to a doggy door would be ideal for them, and being allowed inside of night time to sleep.

Charlie and Emma are located in Carrington NSW (Suburb of Newcastle NSW) Their adoption fee is $1050 which includes desexing, microchipping and vaccinations. They are each up to date on all worming and flea treatments. To enquire about this dynamic duo, email Amanda on [email protected]

Magic Mike

The gorgeous Magic Mike is a male, 11 week old Siberian Husky X Bull Arab puppy. He’s a big teddy bear with my brown fluffy coat and dark button eyes. He’s the biggest of his siblings and is a little more cruisey – not by much though as he’s a half-husky after all (and we all know huskies aren’t exactly idle!) He’s a huge puppy so likely to be a very big boy when all grown up !!!

He is intelligent, active and adventurous and would LOVE a friendly, energetic, medium sized female dog to play with in his new home – your existing dog should be out of puppy stage so that she can be a role model for Mike and his development. Not too old though as senior dogs will find his puppy playfulness way too much! No chickens or pocket pets please as huskies are known for their high prey drive.

Magic Mike will be best suited to a home with a couple who adore arctic breed dogs and have lots of canine experience. He wouldn’t be suited to a home with young kids as you will be too busy trying to catch up with him. A home with teenagers older than 16+ years who are confident with arctics and active dogs would be OK though.

If you are experienced with arctics and you’re keen for an active adventurer like Magic Mike, email Jo on [email protected] . I’m located near Maitland (west of Newcastle). You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

As I am not yet desexed, I am only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens areas as I must visit our rescue vet for desexing when I am approximately 5 months old. Exceptional Sydney based adoptions will only be considered upon approval. He is not available for long distance or interstate adoption.

His adoption fee is $600 which covers my desexing, vaccination, microchipping, flea and worming treatments. You can see all of our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Buddy

Buddy is a 7yr old Labrador Retriever X. He has the most beautiful temperament. One of the best we have ever seen in a dog.

Buddy will be loyal, loving and give back two fold. Buddy just wants your company. He would best suit a young active family with kids who want to play with him and show him plenty of love and cuddles. He is not bothered at all by a little bit of rough play. He loves walks on the beach and tagging along on bike rides.

Buddy spent most of his life on a chain in a business yard. He was known to escape in the past, but we feel since having him that this was just to find company and pats. He will need to be kept on a strong secure lead at all times when outside the house yard, possibly until he feels safe and secure at his new home. He dislikes storms and prefers to be inside when they roll in. He may have a little cry when you leave him to go out but we have found this is happening less and less once he knows you will come back.

Buddy has learnt to SIT and WAIT for his food, he is very obedient and learns fast. He also shakes hands! Buddy is great with other dogs and shows absolutely no aggression towards them. Bud loves to sleep inside so he knows he is part of the family, but also is okay outside. Preferably somewhere he can see inside and listen for his human family. He will come with his own newly purchased bed which he loves and is quite happy sleeping in. This beautiful boy will thrive in a family who treats him like another human of the household. He just wants to be with you wherever you go, whenever possible.

Buddy is quite strong on the lead so until he is trusted to not run off, he will need a adult to walk him on the leash. When we tell people about Buddy, he sounds too good to be true but HE IS the best dog ever.

For more information on Buddy please contact Stacey on [email protected].

Buddy is located in Redhead and is ready and eager to meet his new forever family.

Buddy’s adoption fee is $400 and includes his desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and microchipping. You can see all our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Bob

Meet the handsome Bob. He’s a 5 year old pure bred beagle who is full of love to give.

Bob is the perfect companion who is happiest to be snuggled up and spending time with you. Bob is your typical beagle and sniffs his way through life, being very scent driven. Bob knows his basic commands but will take the opportunity to go outside and follow scents if doors are left open.

Due to his breed he will need to be in an active home where he will regularly be walked and stimulated. Bob gets on well with other dogs and currently lives with a female Kelpie. Bob has always lived with other dogs so for this reason it would be preferred he went to a home that has other dog friends for him to play with.

Bob is looking for a home where he will be allowed indoors most of the time, although he does okay outside if you need to leave for short periods. As he can be a bit of an escape artist, secure fencing is required (at least 6 feet). Bob is looking to go to a home where he will be treated as family as he would love nothing more than to be cuddled up next to you.

Bob is currently not yet desexed but has shown no signs of any aggression towards male dogs, food aggression, etc. Bob is generally a very happy boy who will be nothing but loving to you.

If you are interested in adopting the handsome Bob, please contact Morgan at [email protected] for more information.

Bob’s adoption fee is $500 which includes desexing, microchipping and vaccinations. As Bob is currently not desexed, he will only be available for adoption to the immediate surrounding region. Out of area adoptions are not available at this time.

Barley

Meet Barley! This stunner is a 4 year old male Mastiff cross. He is a big sook who absolutely loves any kind of affection and cuddles.

Barley is great with dogs of any size, he’s a friendly giant. He would love another dog friend to keep him company, but he would probably also be more than happy to have all his owner’s attention to himself.
He has had basic training, but we are looking for a home with dedicated owners to give him ongoing training, especially with learning how to walk nicely on lead. Barley is fully toilet trained and he knows not to jump.

Barley has shown to be an escape artist, so his perfect forever home should either have secure and high fencing or someone home most of the time so he can be supervised when outside.

Barley is looking for a home where he is allowed to sleep inside and is treated as part of the family. He also won’t mind human siblings, as he is great with kids! He currently lives with young children and he is very placid around them. He has also shown to be great around cats and pocket pets, nothing really seems to bother him!

Barley is looking for a home with someone home most of the time, where he is taken for daily outings and taken along for adventures.

If you’re interested in adopting this gorgeous boy, please contact Charlotte at [email protected] You can also fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt.

Barley is an assisted adoption and still living with her owners in Thornton NSW (west of Newcastle NSW) while Dog Rescue Newcastle helps him find his forever home. His adoption fee is $300 which includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping. He is up to date on worming and flea treatments.

Karla

This gorgeous girl is a 1yr old female German Shepherd. She is a beautiful girl that has all the traits of this breed, loyal, protective, energetic and fun loving.

Dog Rescue Newcastle are assisting Karla’s owners to find her the perfect forever home that she deserves. Please read Karla’s story and apply if you think you can provide her a home she deserves.

This is Karla’s human mum Deborah, I lost my husband to brain cancer in 2018 and needed a loving companion to help me heal. I first saw these puppies advertised on the web for sale and it was a local breeder so I contacted them and they only had three puppies unsold out of a litter of nine. I organised a meet and greet at there home and had actually chosen a different puppy of their web photo’s, but, when I arrived that puppy ignored me and Karla (birth named Dippy) came to me and sat on my lap with no hesitation or encouragement. I then knew she had chosen me to be her human mum.

Karla never cried at night being alone on my back deck and I slept with her on the back deck on new years eve so she would not be frightened of the fireworks and celebration around our neighbourhood. I have also been outside with her on stormy nights to assure her that lighting and thunder are nothing to be afraid off. Karla has a soft and gentle soul and very energetic. Karla can fetch and return, say hello by shaking hands/paws/both paws and will sit on command when waiting for you to place her dinner down.

Karla loves the beach and still a little weary of waves but will get in if you are in. Karla hasn’t had a lot of socialising with small children but I am sure with the right guidance she will be fine due to her gentle nature. I love her very much and am sad to have to part with her but I am no longer able to keep her and I know that the perfect home will be found for her with the help of this amazing team that has come to her rescue.

Karla needs a home with someone who is experienced with this breed and is able to exercise her daily, and preferably with a fun loving, playful furry sibling. Karla would not be suited to a family with young children due her size and boisterous nature, so homes with children under the age of 12 will not be considered. She is not an escapist but would need suitable fencing for a large dog, colourbond 5-6ft with no holes or gaps. Karla sleeps outside in her kennel and this can be given to her new owners.

This absolutely heart warming girl is on the hunt for her new home and really cant wait to meet you! If you’re interested to know more about Karla, please contact Wendy at [email protected]

You can fill out the adoption questionnaire here https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt

Karla’s adoption fee is $500. She is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and has been treated for fleas and worms. You can see all of our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Xander

Xander is a sweet natured 13 week old male Lab X Rotti. He enjoys playing with soft toys and balls and is always found playing with one either on his own or with one of the other dogs.

Xander also enjoys searching the yard for treats, puzzling how to get treats out of a variety of homemade enrichment toys and chewing on raw chicken wings and big raw bones. Xander has been socializing with other dogs and children who are respectful of animals. As with all puppies he will need someone patient to teach him manners and how to walk on a lead. As Xander gets older he will need to be walked on a regular basis.

All applicants need to keep in mind that Xander has typical puppy behaviour and is going to grow into a very large energetic dog. During the night Xander is sleeping in a crate in the bedroom. He has crate trained very quickly and now settles in the crate within minutes. When Xander first sees you or other household pets he is very excited. With gentle guidance he settles and has learnt how to sit when asked.

Xander is in foster care in Maryland, NSW (Lake Macquarie) and is available for local adoption only. For more information or to meet Kaiya, please submit an online application and contact Jaime by email [email protected].

Xander’s adoption fee is $600 which includes desexing, vaccinations and microchipping. As Xander is not yet desexed, he will not be available to out of area adoption as he will need to be returned to one of our approved vets at 5months old for desexing.
