3 Year Old Female American Staffordshire Bull Terrier X

Our beautiful girl Nina is not coping in our pound environment. Her anxiety levels have increased and she really needs to find a perfect, loving home where she feels at ease so she does not need to worry.

Nina loves people and super excited to interact with everyone that she meets. She craves attention and greets you with lots of enthusiasm and love. Nina would suit a house hold with children aged from 13 years and with no cats. Nina is accepting of other submissive canine friends however she still needs some guidance when meeting them due to her eager approach.

Nina sits for lead placement and is wonderful on the lead after she settles from her excitement of knowing she is going for a walk. Although Nina knows some commands, she still needs some training and guidance from an experienced Staffy owner.

For Nina to blossom she requires structure and routine in her life. Daily walks and positive reinforcement to build up her confidence is a must. Nina is the most loving girl and humans are important to her so she would need to be allowed inside to play a part in your everyday life.

If you have secure fencing, in a position to provide this precious girl with everything she needs, please lodge your interest online

Nina’s adoption fee covers her microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, worming & flea treatments.

9 Month Old Male Ridgeback X

Look at this adorable boys face!!! Duke is a big happy puppy, super loving and people ordinated. Although a bigger boy, he walks really well on the lead and just a delight to have in your company.

Duke is very playful and still in the process of learning his manners. He will only suit a home with older confident children because of his mischievous puppy traits. Duke can sit, shake and he is making great progress. His new family will need to have the time to commit to continuing with training and guiding him so he can grow to be the best well behaved man.

Duke is very eager to interact with other playful canine friends but he finds kitty cats a bit scary and will do his best to avoid them.

Duke is so likeable. He has a heart of gold and ready to love his new humans unconditionally. We envisage Duke will be at his happiest playing in a big back yard, then being able to trot inside to hang out with his family as they go about their day.

If you can provide Duke with a life that he deserves Duke, please lodge your adoption application online

Duke’s adoption fee covers – microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea and worming treatment.

1 Year Old Male Cattle X

Our handsome boy Diesel has blossomed so much over the past weeks while in our care. When he first arrived he was extremely stressed and avoided interaction with our staff as much as possible. Over time Diesel gradually warmed to us and it has been amazing to witness this kind soul’s transformation. Slow introductions are still required but Diesel is quickly realising that peoples intentions are normally from a good place and he is safe.

Diesel is certainly an adventurous boy who is at his happiest going for long walks or runs. He is easy to manage on the lead and knows some basic commands. Diesel absolutely loves the company of other canine friends. He has wonderful manners towards them and they appear to be very accepting of him. Diesel doesn’t appear to be bothered by cats being in his presence; however he would need to be initially closely monitored if you have one in your household.

Being a working breed Diesel will need structure, simulation and exercise to keep him occupied and content. His new family must be an active one. He will require open spaces to run and play and welcomed as a family member.

If you have secure fencing, in a position to provide this precious boy with everything he needs, please lodge your interest online

Diesel’s adoption fee covers his microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, worming & flea treatments.

11 Year Old Female American Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

A Very Special Dog Available for Adoption

Misha’s Story

Misha is a mature lady who came to SoCares as a stray. She had a lump on her hind leg and a smaller one on her chest. Vet advice at that time was that the chest lump was a harmless fatty lump and the leg tumour was cancerous. Rather than have her stay in the pound environment with these issues, Misha was placed into foster care with an angel called Lynne.

Following successful surgery to remove both lumps, this is what the vet had to say about Misha’s leg tumour:

“Misha had a soft tissue sarcoma grade 1. Narrow surgical margins. This means there is a SMALL chance that the lump will recur in the local area but very unlikely to metastasise to rest of body, so good outcome. I recommend monitoring closely for any regrowth and if so, the surgery can be repeated to mop up any remaining tumour tissue while it is small.”

Misha is now back at SoCares and looking for her furever home. She’s eleven years young and DEFINITELY no stodgy senior. This beautiful soul loves people, gets on with other dogs and loves to play ball. She’s fabulous to walk, is affectionate and is great company on the lounge at night watching MAFS or popping out for coffee at your local cafe. She also loves bush walks, if you’re up for it.

Misha’s ideal home would be one with no other pets, so she can be the primary focus of the adoration of her human minions She would suit a mature household with an active retired couple or single. Misha is not suited to apartment living, as she loves to play and fetch her ball in the backyard

Misha is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and on flea/tick prevention. SoCares are asking a small adoption fee of $200. If you think you can offer Misha her furever home, please submit an expression of interest form via the link below:
