Sweet man Hugo is ready to find his forever family  Hugo is a beautiful man with a lot of love to give.

Theodore profile.png

Theodore

3 Year Old  Male Sharpei x Staffy

- Meet Theodore -

How can you not look at this beautiful squishy face and not fall in love?

Theodore is a 3 year old Sharpei x Staffy

Unfortunately Theodore didn’t always look this happy. He was dumped in our after hours cages and was at first reserved and very scared and was in poor health.

He didn’t like having a dog lead anywhere near him. It took staff about a week to break down this cutie patootie’s walls and gain his trust and ever since then, he has been an absolute gem of a dog.

Every morning he is at this kennel door waiting to greet you with his big goofy smile.

Theodore LOVES food, he has never refused a meal or any treat offered to him. In fact he is regularly seen trying to catch sky raisins (flies). He knows his basic commands and will always sit when asked.

Theodore loves going for a walk or spending time playing with his doggy friends. He can pull on the lead a little bit, so he does need some further training to help correct this.

Theodore can bark when you walk away from him and he can still see you. He just wants you to come back and give him some cuddles. In his kennel however when he can’t see you, he settles quickly.

While at our shelter Theodore keeps his kennel tidy and doesn’t destroy his bedding.

Theodore doesn’t show much interest in toys and would much rather jump into your lap for a cuddle.

Sex: Male
Age: 3 years
Adoption Fee: $450
Breed: Shar-pei x Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Size: Medium
Colour: Chocolate Brown and Tan
Location: Erina Shelter
Personality: Squishy Boy
Toilet Trained: No

Other Pets: Theodore has been tested with a variety of dogs of all sexes and sizes and gets along with everyone. He does seem fearful of cats.

Type Of Household: Theodore would do well in a quiet home as he has shown some fear around loud noises and raised voices.

Theodore's adoption fee covers: microchipping, lifetime registration, desexing, current vaccination, flea & worming treaments.

Special notes: Theodore is currently being treated for a yeast infection in his ears and his new owner needs to be aware that this may be a reoccurring issue and that he may require ear drops again in the future.

We would love to see this gorgeous boy finally with a family who will shower him with love and who can provide him with a forever, secure home.

If you would like to be considered to adopt Theodore, please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Jessie11.jpg

Jessie

7 Year Old  Female Mastiff x Rhodesian Ridgeback

Meet Jessie...... AKA: Jess Jess, Wiggly Girl, Jessie Bum Jessie is a beautiful girl who just adores being with humans ❤ She loves going for walks but will keep letting you know that she’d love a butt scratch or 2 while on your adventure 🐾 Jessie was quite stressed when arriving at our facility but after sometime and good ol’ TLC and reassurance she has settled well. Jess is a goofy girl, loves her food enrichments, especially those made with peanut butter! She also loves having fun with her plushy toys… though they don’t seem to last long🤣

 

Jessie Girl is a strong girl who does tend to pull on lead at first, she will need continuation of overall training and improvement for her lead manners. She can be treat motivated and will listen to her handlers, often looking back at them while on her walks for reassurance.

 

Size: Large

Colour: Tan & White

Location: Erina Facility

Personality: All Smiles

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Jessie has shown us that she really has had little to no socialisation with other canine friends. She shows concern and intrigue when face to face with other dogs and will approach to sniff but if the dog is quite excitable then Jess will give a growl and then avoid. In saying this, Jessie would be best as an only dog. As she is located at our Erina facility, we are unable to test her with cats.

Type of household: Jessie girl would be best suited to a home with no children or older children with large breed experience, active family who will commit to furthering her training as well as daily walks to burn off her energy, willing to include Jessie in day to day activities and welcome her in as a apart of the family. Jessie’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming.

 

If you meet all of Jessie’s above requirements, we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Mak.jpg

Mak

5 Year old  Male  American Staffy 

~ Meet Mak ~

Look at this adorable, handsome boy!!!  Don’t you just want to cuddle him?

Mak arrived at SoCares as a stray. He was microchipped and contact was made with his owner multiple times however they never came to reclaim him.

Mak is a solid dog but he really is a sweetheart. He is such a lovable boof head!!! Mak thinks he is a lap dog and is always trying to get cuddles from people. Being the size he is, he is never going to fit in anyones lap but we don’t have the heart to let me know this.

Mak loves his walks and can pull quite hard on a lead.  He does require a physically strong owner to take him for walks. Mak doesn’t like raised voices or sudden movements. It’s highly likely he has been mistreated in his previous home.  Mak loves food and will sit on command.  He loves food so much that he needs to have some time alone while he eats.

During the colder nights at the pound when Mak wears a coat, it is always on him in the morning. He is a good boy keeping his kennel tidy and doesn’t destroy his bed or eat his bedding.

Sex: Male

Breed: American Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Colour: White & Brown

Age: Five

Adoption Fee: $450

Size: Large

Location: Erina Shelter

Personality: Beautiful Squishy Boy

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: At the time of his assessment Mak hadn’t been desexed and he only had love for other desexed males and females. Once Mak is desexed and his hormones settle down he might be less put off with other non desexed males trying to interact with him.

Mak seemed scared when he met a cat but staff aren’t confident he can be rehomed with one just yet. He is a work in progress.

Type of household: 6ft fencing is an absolute must for this boy. Mak can he rehomed with older children but only if they are confident around big dogs. Mak does jump around a lot and could accidentally knock over small children or the elderly.

Mak’s adoption fee covers: Microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

Mak was used for breeding purposes in his previous home and is now looking to live the life of luxury where he is treated like a king and not used by someone to make money from.  If you are interested in meeting this wonderful boy, please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Harley.png

Harley

2 Year Old  Male American Staffordshire Bull Terrier X

~ Meet Harley ~

Aka: Harls, Harley Davidson...

Hercules Harley is one handsome dude who has unfortunately been let down by previous owners and is now looking for a committed and loving owner who can give him the life he deserves.

Just like Hercules, Harley is also very strong and loves to explore. Harley can pull on the lead when out walking so will need a physically strong owner.
Harley can get very over excited and it is often hard to get his attention when there is a lot going on around him. When this gorgeous boy is given some time in a quiet space, Harley will eventually relax and is happy to sit near you.

Harley doesn’t realise his own size and doesn’t quite understand why he can’t just jump up into your lap for cuddles. He adores people and getting attention from them. Harley gets upset when people leave him therefore Harley needs someone who is home more often than not so he doesn’t feel let down and abandoned.

Harley loves food and is more than happy to sit and shake when asked.

Sex: Male
Age: 2 Years
Adoption Fee: $450
Breed: American Staffordshire Bull Terrier X
Size: Medium
Colour: Black & White
Location: Erina Facility
Personality: Hunky Smiley Boy
Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Harley absolutely loves dogs of all sexes and sizes. The only thing that goes through his mind when he sees another dog is “playtime”!! Harley isn’t suitable to be adopted into a home with an elderly dog or a dog who doesn’t share the same excitement Harley does. Harley unfortunately doesn’t have the same love he has for dogs with cats and isn’t suitable to be adopted into a home with one.

Type of household: Harley will need to be given time to adjust and made to feel secure. He has been let down in the past and this has affected his trust with people leaving him. His new family must include him as one of their own and have the necessary time to spend with him. Harley is an active boy who will require lots of exercise to keep him happy and healthy.

Harley’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming.

If you meet all of this special boys requirements and you can offer Hurley a happy forever home, we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Prince

2 Year Old  Male American Staffordshire Bull Terrier 

~ Meet Prince ~

AKA: Prince Charming, Princey Boy…

Prince is certainly an eye catching young man. He is very switched on, smart and eagerly wants to learn. He is currently in the progress of learning a new tick of walking in and out of his handlers legs…. give this clever boy something to achieve and he is hooked.

Prince loves to play outdoor games. Swimming , balls & squeaker toys are his favourite things in the world. Boy does he also love treats, just get any type of packet out and his lovely ears spring up and he sits in anticipation. This social boy is a chatter box and makes it known that he wants in with whatever is going on around him.

Our Princey boy has not previously lived his best life. He came to us fearful of people and it has taken a period of time for him to open up and trust us. At times he can still be unsure of new people and he will take a cautious approach until he is confident that you are a good person. Our staff and volunteers have made wonderful progress with Prince by engaging him with things that he loves to do and allowing him time to adjust.

Size: Medium
Breed: American Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
Colour: Blue & White
Personally: Mr Chatter Box
Toilet Trained: Yes
Location: Charmhaven Facility

Other pets: Prince gets along with most canine friends however through a barrier he can be dog reactive. One on one he tries to entice other friends by bow playing and he has displayed nice manners when interacting with his pound buddies during pack walks. It appears that Prince has previously not been given the opportunity to socialise and interact much with other canines. At this stage we believe Prince would be best suited as an only boy of his household. Prince is not suitable to be homed with felines.

Type of household: Prince would suit families with children from 15 years old and who are experienced with his Staffy breed. Prince requires structure and a family who are at home more than not. Human company is important to this precious boy, therefore he would love to be welcomed within the family home and become an integral part of his human’s world. Prince thrives on being active and outdoor life. Bush walk adventures where he can sniff, run and play in puddles of water makes this boy happy. Therefore his new family must enjoy the outdoors and be able to keep him active.

Prince’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming.

If you can provide Prince with everything that he needs and a forever loving home, we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Keeley3.jpg

Keeley

18 Month Old  Female Staffordshire Bullmastiff X

~ Meet Keeley ~

AKA: Keels, KEEYEEEE, Keek

Keeley girl, she’s a special one  She came to us an unchipped stray, needing some TLC. We soon got to know Miss Keels for the big, fun loving goofball that she is 

Keeley of course loves spending time with her humans and receiving all of the butt scratches she possibly can. Keeks loves going out and exploring the most, that sniffer likes to go to town!! She is well on her way to prim and proper lead manners but will require furthering of her training.

Keeley does have a pre-existing injury in one of her back legs, this does not cause her any pain it simply means she holds her paw in an odd way. Because of the way she holds said paw, Keeley must have a doggie shoe on whenever she goes out for walks as her paw can get a bit scrapped up. We have a set of doggie boots here that missy moo doesn’t mind having on her bad paw when going for walks.

Size: Large

Age: Three
Colour: Brindle

Adoption Fee: $390
Location: Erina Facility
Personality: Goofy but downright loveable
Toilet Trained: No

Other Pets: Keeley has shown some selectivity as well as dominance when it comes to her canine friends. She would be suitable to live with another dog provided they are submissive and establish a good connection during meet and greets. Keeley is not suited to live with a feline.

Type of Household: Keeley needs a family that is willing to look after and put the effort into caring for her slight handicap. A full rundown of the injury and how to care for it will be given to her new family. She will require a home with no children under 15 years. Her forever family will need to be committed to furthering her overall training.

Keeley’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming.

If you can offer Keeley a happy forever home, we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Louie and Charlie.png

Louie & Charlie

11 Month old Male German Shepard Cross

~ Meet Louie & Charlie ~

Almost identical brothers Charlie and Louie arrived at our Charmhaven shelter after being found on the side of the road. It was clear from the start that both boys had lots of brotherly love for each other as they wouldn’t leave each other’s side. These poor young boys were extremely scared, untrusting and in poor condition.

They have certainly come a long way and improved immensely while in our care. They are adorable boys and extremely handsome may we add.

Both are super sweet with people and love getting cuddles. They are still in the process of learning basic commands, but they love food and treats so they will do just about anything to get one. With some consistent training Charlie & Louie should learn these basic commands quickly.

Sex: Male

Age: 11 months

Breed: German Shephard Cross

Size: Large

Adoption fee: $500 each

Location: Erina Shelter

Personality: Handsome Fun Boys

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Previous to coming to our shelter we believe that Charlie and Louie haven’t been around many other dogs as they would retreat when introduced to another canine buddy. In such a short period of time how things have turned around. With some positive reinforcement and encouragement they now happily interact with other buddies and display lovely manners.

Charlie and Louie have shown that they are afraid of cats. They may be able to be rehomed with a cat but their new owner must be willing to take things slowly and understand they will need lots of support to make them feel more confident with a feline house mate.

Type of household: These boys could easily fit into most active households. They would thrive in a home environment where they will be included as a family member and allowed within the family home. They require 6ft secure fencing.

We truly believe that it is beneficial for Charlie & Louie to be rehomed into separate homes.  They are less reliant on each other now, more confident and accepting of other canine friends. We will consider a home for them together, only if a suitable household can be found.

The boy’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

If you have a perfect home for either Charlie or Louie, please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Missie.jpg

Missie

18 Month old Female English Staffy X

~ Meet Missie ~

Aka: Missie Moo, Little Miss….

Sweet girl Missie arrived at SoCares with no microchip and no one called to reclaim her.

Missie was very scared when she first arrived and you could tell she wasn’t receiving the vet care she needed, as she had fly blown damage to her ears and had four mammary lumps which were caused by enlarged mammary tissue.  The enlarged mammary tissue was because of hormones, so Missie was desexed straight out of her impound period and is now in perfect health.

Missie is full of energy and is always looking around for something to get into. Missie loves playing with toys and her face just lights up when she sees that you have one to give her. Missie will need a family who can take her on lots of fun adventures, so she can enjoy oodles of sniffing and exploring.

We are pretty sure she would never turn down a trip to a doggy cafe for a puppycino where she can get attention from everyone and because she is such a clever young girl, she would sit and shake before she got her delicious treat.

Sex: Female

Age: 18 months

Adoption Fee: $450

Breed: English Staffy Cross

Size: Medium

Location: Erina

Personality: Miss Ball Of Fun

Toilet Trained: No

Type of household: Missie wouldn’t be suited to a family who will leave her alone for long periods of time. Missie needs her people around her to feel secure and requires solid 6ft fencing.

Other pets: Missie is super playful with other dogs. She doesn’t understand the concept of personal space though and will get right up into another dogs face to try initiate play. Missie isn’t suited to be rehomed with timid or elderly dogs due to how excitable she plays.

When Missie met a cat she dropped down low to the ground while cautiously approaching it. When the cat hissed at her she looked for reassurance from her handler. Missie could live with a cat given a slow introduction is made and Missie is not left alone with her feline companion until they have built up a good relationship. Being only 18 months old it’s likely Missie has never met a cat before.

This beautiful, lovable girl brightens everyone’s day. She is always happy and super sweet. If you have a perfect home for our Missie we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Cocouse.jpg

Coco

3 Year old Female English Staffy 

~ Meet Coco ~

Aka: Cocolicious

Coco arrived at SoCares as a stray, she was microchipped and contact with her owner was made multiple times, however Coco was never reclaimed.

When Coco arrived at SoCares it was very clear to staff she had been heavily used for breeding. Cocos poor nipples almost touched the ground. Staff have since been informed and were able to confirm that at only three years old Coco has been subjected to having multiple litters.

At the time of impounding Coco had a litter of 14 week old babies at home. Coco will soon be desexed and will never have to endure being pregnant again.

Coco is a type of girl who desires lots of attention and why shouldn’t she? This beautiful girl deserves a lifetime of love, care and cuddles.

Sex: Female

Breed: English Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Colour: Blue

Age: Three

Adoption Fee: $450

Location: Erina Shelter

Personality: Sweet Cuddly Girl

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Coco is super dog friendly, which isn’t surprising having spent her entire life around puppies.When Coco sees another dog she gets very vocal and can pull on lead. All she wants to do is say hello, but because of her over excited nature she doesn’t understand she needs to wait. Coco has been tested with males and females of all sizes at our Erina facility and gets along well with everyone.

Coco is quite vocal when left alone. It would be beneficial for her to have a doggy friend in her new family so she can have company from a canine companion and someone who is home more often than not so she has company from her human as well.

Coco really dislikes cats. It is very much ingrained into her, so if you have a feline companion unfortunately Coco isn’t the dog for you.

Type of household: Coco is suitable to be around children however given her playful and excited nature, caution is advised as she may accidentally knock over small children. Coco has spent her entire life being a breeding machine and hasn’t been taught basic manners. Her new family must be committed to providing the necessary training that she requires.

It appears Coco has been yelled at in the past and is scared of sudden movements and loud noises. She needs an understanding owner who is willing to work with her on some issues and give her a secure, stable home environment where she can thrive. Coco requires 6ft solid fencing.

Coco’s adoption fee covers: Microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

 If you can offer Coco a life that she so deserves, we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Nikoprofile_edited.jpg

Niko

9 Month old Male Staffy X Border Collie

~ Meet Nico ~

Bouncy boy Niko arrived at Socares in excellent condition, wearing a collar, was microchipped and desexed, yet no one returned our calls to reclaim him.

At one point in time Niko has been loved and taught how to sit, shake and drop. Unfortunately this isn’t a rare thing to see happen in the pound and once loved dogs get abandoned.

Being abandoned has had an effect on Niko. He has started to eat his bedding from the anxiety of being in our pound environment. We believe this behaviour will stop once Nico is in a loving home with a new family who won’t let him down again.

Niko is a lovely natured boy who is full of energy and likes to explore and sniff everything! He certainly has a cheeky side…. Niko loves his plush toys so much that he likes to run away with them in his mouth. He enjoys playing this game but Niko happily lets you take them from him.

Sex: Male

Breed: Staffy X Border Collie

Age: 9 Months old

Colour: Black & White

Adoption Fee: $500

Personality: Mr Ray Of Sunshine

Location: Erina

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Niko is very dog friendly, maybe a little over friendly at times as all he wants to do is play and wrestle with his doggy mates. He never stops playing! Timid or elderly dogs certainly won’t share his same enthusiasm for playing so it is recommended Niko is rehomed with a dog who can match his energy levels.

When Niko met a cat he didn’t really know what he was seeing. It appears as though he has never met a cat before. When a cat hissed at him he couldn’t get away fast enough and tried to run out of the room. It is possible Niko could be rehomed with a cat but not left alone with them until they have established a good relationship.

Type of home: Because Niko is a very bouncy boy he isn’t suitable to be rehomed with small children or the elderly. His new family must be active and have the time to provide gorgeous Niko with enough exercise and play to keep him happy & healthy. Niko requires a home with solid 6ft fencing.

Niko’s adoption fee covers: Microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

If you have a wonderful home for Niko we would love to hear from you. Please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Millie3.jpg

Milly

3 Years old Female Shar- pei Cross

~ Meet Millie ~

Aka: Silly Millie, Little Miss Smarty Pants….

Our Millie girl has improved so much since she first arrived. Millie came to us as an unclaimed stray, very shut down, cautious and not wanting to engage with people in general. The more time that we shared with Millie, the more it became obvious that she had not lived a life that she so deserves.

Millie has a tendency to be aloof with new people. She needs to get to know you before she opens up. This is a typical Shar-pei trait but once you break through this barrier, you will gain a most loyal companion.

Millie is low energy, super smart and loves to learn. The more exposure where she gets to experience new things, the more she blossoms. Millie recently experienced a car ride which she was so excited about and thoroughly enjoyed.

Sex: Female
Breed: Shar-pei Cross
Age: Three
Adoption Fee: $450
Colour: Black
Size: Medium
Personality: Smart Girl
Location: Charmhaven Shelter
Toilet Trained: Yes

Other pets: Millie can be in the presence of other canines while on lead but she will never be able to share a household with one. Initially when Millie first arrived she was very dog reactive. Millie now joins in with our pack dog walks, but she very much likes to keep to herself. Millie is not suitable to be housed with felines.

Type of household: Millie’s breed requires a lifelong reinforcement of training and socialization. Her new family must be experienced or have an informed understanding of the requirements of a Shar-pei. Millie will require lots of patience and time for her to completely settle into a new home environment.

Millie is a one of a kind type of girl. She would be a fabulous addition for a mature person or family wanting a non-fussy, switched on canine family member.

Millie’s adoption fee covers: Microchipping, lifetime registration, desexing, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

If you can meet all of Millie’s requirements and provide her with a home where she can feel secure and loved, we would like to hear from you. Please lodge your interest www.socaresanimalcaregacility.com.au/adoptions

Hades.jpg

Hades

10 Month old Male American Staffy X

- Meet Hades -

Poor Hades was left in our overnight kennel with pink antiseptic spray applied over his body. He was so confused and worried. We really felt for this young boy. His owner failed to claim him, so we have shown him lots of love and care and this precious boy is ready to find a family that will love him forever.

Hades still requires some training and socialisation. We have been working with his lead manners and he does tend to bite the lead when excited. He has made improvement but this is an area that his new owner will need to guide him further.

Hades really is just a big playful pup. It's obvious that his previous owner did not provide him with the necessary attention that he needed. He loves treats and this gains his attention to be able to get him to perform some basic commands. Once in a home environment with a committed owner, he will only keep improving and develop into a very well behaved boy.

Sex: Male

Age: 10 months

Breed: American Staffy X

Colour: Black & White

Adoption Fee: $500

Location: Charmhaven Shelter

Personally: Live Life To The Fullest

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Hades has an enthusiastic approach towards other canine friends. He loves to play and interact but he will only be able to be housed with another buddy that is tolerant of his behaviour. Hayes has shown no interest when introduced to our shelter cats however he would need to be closely monitored if you already have a feline pet.

 

Type of household: Hades is only young and requires a lot of guidance and training from his new owner. Opening up his world with adventures, experiencing new environments and made to feel loved and secure will certainly set this boy up for a happy, well adjusted new life.

At this stage Hades would suit a mature household who have previous dog experience.

Gloria use.jpg

Gloria

2 Years old Female Staffordshire Bull Terrier X

~ Meet Gloria ~

Aka Hippo ....

First and foremost if you love water and dogs, then this plump lady is absolutely for you!

Gloria arrived at SoCares with no microchip and no owner came forward to reclaim her. With her not having a microchip staff picked her name and decided to call her Gloria after the hippopotamus in the movie “Madagascar”.

At the time staff didn’t know how much Gloria loves playing with the water from the hose, but now everyone agrees her name couldn’t be anymore fitting.

Gloria has a cheeky stubborn side and she gets easily distracted. Getting her to sit, even for food is always a challenge. Even though she has lovely big ears she really needs to use them to listen more 

Gloria loves to play with plush toys and does enjoy a game of tug of war. She is quite strong and can be a bit vocal when playing. We all think she just likes the sound of her own voice 

Sex: Female
Age: 2 Years Old
Adoption Fee: $450
Size: Medium
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
Colour: Blue & White
Personally: Cheeky
Toilet Trained: No
Location: Erina Facility

Other pets: Gloria can be a sassy queen around other dogs and cats and prefers to be in the company of humans. This robust lady loves going on walks, however she can pull on the lead quite a bit so she will require a physically strong owner.

Type of household: Gloria would suit a single person or a family, however her new owner must be aware that she does jump around a lot and get over excited so could potentially accidentally knock over small children. Gloria will need a home with solid, 6ft high fencing.

Gloria’s adoption free covers: Microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

If you would love to be welcomed by this gorgeous girl’s huge smile each day we would like to hear from you. To lodge your adoption interest www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Yoda.jpg

Yoda

14 Month Old Female Koolie x Catahoula

- Meet Yoda -

Yoda is a stunning mix of Koolie x Catahoula. She has a beautiful coat and as equally beautiful nature.

Yoda was surrendered into our care because her owner could no longer care for her due to an injury. Yoda has been well loved, socialised and absolutely loves the beach and bush life.

This gorgeous girl can be a little hesitant when placing a collar and lead on her. After this, she loves her walks and is great on the lead.

Sex: Female

Breed: Koolie x Catahoula

Age: 14 months

Colour: Tan & Black

Size: Large

Adoption fee: $450

Location: Charmhaven Shelter

Personality: Gentle & Kind

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Yoda has previously been well socialised with other doggy friends although her previous owner has stated that she plays rough with them. While in our care Yoda has shown some reluctance to engage with them. Yoda has previously lived with a cat but they were never in close proximity. Therefore she would need to be closely supervised if you have a feline at home.

Type of household: Yoda is an active type of young lady. She has been raised being able to enjoy trips to the beach and the bush. She loves long car rides and adventures. She is an easily girl who would suit most households.

Like most new pets, Yoda will need time to settle into her new home environment. She is a family orientated girl, so she will need to be able to have access into the home to spend time with her new family.

If your family is an active one, you love the beach and the outdoors, then we would like to hear from you. Please lodge your interest www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

junioruse.jpg

Junior

2 Year Old Male Amercian Staffy x

- Meet Junior -

If anybody had a reason to be unhappy with life it would be Junior. Previous to coming into our care Junior was not valued nor treated well which left him in poor condition and requiring his tail to be amputated.

With the financial help of our supportive community, Junior underwent surgery to remove part of his tail and with lots of love and support, Junior came through like a trooper. Even after enduring all this, nothing can surpass this wonderful boys enthusiasm for life and people.

Junior absolutely loves belly rubs!!! He is a super affectionate guy and has a fun personality. He really is quiet comical with the different antics that he gets up to.

When focused using treats Junior will sit, shake, drop and roll over. We are so proud of him. He has come a long way from not receiving much past training.

Sex: Male

Breed: American Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Colour: Red & White

Adoption Fee: $450

Location: Charmhaven Shelter

Personality: People Pleaser

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Before coming into our care it has been obvious that Junior was not socialised with other canine friends. His boisterous approach towards other canines can be off putting and not tolerated. He has improved, loves being with his pound buddies on pack walks however Junior requires ongoing dog socialisation to learn how to behave appropriately one on one. He could be homed with another canine friend after a meet and greet has been conducted to ensure suitability.

Junior has shown little interest in our shelter cats. He is more interested in sniffing their enclosures.

Type of home: Junior would love a home environment where he would be able to be the main focus. He loves his people and would be a fabulous companion. He requires some further training and ongoing opportunities to interact with other canines so he can keep improving to be the best boy possible. Junior absolutely enjoys the outdoors and being active. If you have a love for walking or jogging, then Junior is the buddy for you.

Junior's adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

We want nothing but the best family for our special boy. If you tick all of Junior's boxes then please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Potato

3 Year Old Male Staffy x JRT

~ Introducing Potato ~

Aka: Potato Gem ....

Potato arrived at Socares without a microchip and was terrified of where he was. He was very wary when any staff would enter his kennel to try and interact with him. So terrified, this poor little fellow would often wet his bed out of fear.

After a week or so, we finally won him over and Potato completely changed his tune.

Potato became super confident, happy and absolutely thrived on human interaction. He became this super energetic boy and couldn’t wait to get out of his kennel for some fun.

We discovered that Potato loved tennis balls!! If you are holding one you immediately have his undivided attention. Potato knows the word “ball” and if you have thrown a ball and say to him “where is your ball” or “go find your ball” he gets very excited and runs off to find it.

Potato does know his basic commands and will sit when asked. He has lovely lead manners and loves the outdoors.

When Potato sees any dog he immediately pulls you towards them and can be quite vocal along the way. He is extremely keen to say hello, however this behaviour may not be appreciated by all canine friends. Potato will need to be given further guidance by his new owner to help him overcome this.

Sex: Male

Breed: Staffy X Jack Russell Cross

Colour: Brown & White

Age: Three

Size: Small/Medium

Personality: Full Of Fun

Location: Erina Shelter

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Potato has met a number of canine friends of all sorts of sizes, sexes and breeds. He was fabulous with all of them accept when he met an undesexed male of a similar size. At the time Potato was also not desexed so we believe this could have played a part in how he reacted.

When Potato met a cat at our shelter he was very scared and quite literally did a back flip out of the room. In an environment such as a home where Potato feels confident and settled, he may become more interested in cats. Any introduction with a feline companion would need to be done slowly.

Type of home: Potato isn’t a big dog but he can still jump. Due to this he needs a home with 6ft fencing. Any fencing must also be to the ground, so there is no way for him to push his little wiggle butt underneath.

Potato loves to explore and be with people. He would appreciate being able to join his new family on lots of adventures and be included in all of their fun activities.

Potato’s adoption fee covers: Microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

Pete

7 Month Old Male Great Dane X

- Introducing Pete -

Pete is a stunning mix of Great Dane x Pointer breeds. Nothing much fazes this amazing boy. At seven months old Pete is an all round, well adjusted young man.

Pete will sit, shake and drop when asked, great on the lead and extremely easy to handle. He is also very gentle when taking treats from your hand.

Pete loves to play with toys and interact with you, plus he happily likes to explore and do his own thing. The only thing that we have found Pete has a dislike for is puddles of water !!

This carefree boy has a beautiful nature and would be perfect for a family with children who he could hang out with in the back yard and within the family home.

Sex: Male

Breed: Great Dane X Pointer

Size: Large

Colour: Chocolate & White

Adoption Fee: $500

Location: Charmhaven Shelter

Toilet Trained: No

Other Pets: Pete has shown wonderful manners towards all of the pound buddies that he has met. Even when he was told off by another canine this didn't bother him in the slightest. Pete has shown a non caring approach towards the cats that he has been introduced to while in our care.

Type of household: All the hard work has been invested in Pete. He really is a well behaved, gorgeous boy. Pete would thrive being with a family who have the time to interact with him and take him along on outings.

Pete's adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

Miss Elliot

18 Month Old Female Staffy X

- Introducing Miss Elliot -

Miss Elliot is such a sweet, sweet girl. The way she looks at you just melts your heart. Why her owner never claimed her has baffled all of us. She is adorable with a beautiful heart.

When you walk past her kennel she is always quietly sitting on her bed. When this precious girl sees you her face lights up and she comes straight over to the kennel door and can’t wait to get some love and attention.

Miss Elliot loves everyone!!! Outside of her kennel she always wants affection and jumps with joy trying to get it.

Miss Elliot knows how to sit and drop on command and she loves her food. She also loves to play with plush toys and toy balls.

Miss Elliot keeps her kennel bedding neat and tidy and always keeps her winter coat on so she is snug and warm.

Sex: Female

Breed: American Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Age: 18 Months

Adoption Fee: $600

Colour: Red & White

Personally: Snuggle Bug

Location: Erina Shelter

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: Miss Elliot is friendly with all dogs as long as they don’t get right up into her face.

She likes to play with other dogs but doesn’t like it when they get into her personal space too much. If you have a doggy companion that is more on the calm side when playing, then Miss Elliot would really appreciate that.

When Miss Elliot was introduced to cats she was very scared. When a cat swiped and hissed at her, Miss Elliot let out a little cry, dropped to the ground and wanted to leave the room.

Type of household: Miss Elliot would be fine to go to a new family with no other pets. Although she is dog friendly her humans are more of a priority.

Miss Elliot can pull hard on the lead at times, but she is still only young and clearly hasn’t received the training she needed as a puppy. Miss Elliot’s new family will need to persevere with this and be willing to work with her on her lead manners.

Miss Elliot would be suited to a home with older children or children who are use to pooches who have a tendency to jump up.

Miss Elliot’s new home must have solid 6ft fencing.

Miss Elliot’s adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea and worming treatments. It also covers Miss Elliot's breed and behavioral assessments conducted by an approved assessor.

Can you offer this gorgeous girl and lifetime of care and love? If so, please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.auadoptions

1 Year Old Male Amercian Staffy  X

- Meet Ace -

Ace is one awesome handsome boy! He is happy 24/7 and greets you like he has known you forever.

Ace has recently been transferred from our Charmhaven Shelter to our Erina Shelter and has fitted in like a dream. He has adapted really well to his new surroundings and has already made some new doggy friends.

Ace loves his toys and in particular anything that makes a noise. His love of food makes training him easy to gain his focus.

Sex: Male

Age: One

Breed: American Staffy X

Colour: Black & White

Adoption Fee: $450

Location: Erina Shelter

Personally: Everyone's Best Friend

Toilet Trained: No

Type of household: Ace absolutely loves attention from people, and does have a habit of bouncing around and jumping up on you from excitement. For this reason we don’t recommended Ace’s new family have any small children or elderly family who Ace would be interacting with on a daily basis.

Ace’s new family needs to be very active and physically strong, as Ace is also a strong young man.

Other pets: It would be very beneficial for Ace to be rehomed with another canine companion who can match his energy levels.

When Ace met some cats at our shelter he appeared scared of them. When one of the cats hissed at him he made a quick exit out of the room. Any introduction to feline companion must be done slowly.

Ace's adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

Chief

3 Year Old Male Staffy X

- Meet Chief -

Handsome man Chief arrived at SoCares as a microchipped stray and unfortunately his owner wasn’t in a position to be able to reclaim him.

Recently this cheeky man was transferred from our Charmhaven Shelter to our Erina Shelter which did not faze him at all. Staff brought him into the office to give him some snuggles and he jumped straight up onto the office chair and then onto the office table making himself right at home.

Chief loves to say hello to everyone he sees. His tail wags a million miles an hour and his little butt wiggles from side to side. It’s very cute to witness.

Chief does need some training to correct his enthusiasm when walking on lead but his love of food and treats is a great way to gain his focus to make training easier. He is a clever boy and already knows his basic commands.

Chief loves playing with water and the hose as well as plush toys. He likes to play tug of war and get can vocal, however he will drop the toy if asked. The noise he makes isn’t him being aggressive, it’s a play growl and is very common in staffys.

Sex: Male

Breed: English Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross

Size: Medium

Adoption Fee: $450

Location: Erina Shelter

Colour: White with black spots

Personally: Lovable Boy

Toilet Trained: No

Other pets: When Chief met a cat he dropped to the ground and had his hackles up. He didn’t bark at the cat and he looked to the handler for reassurance. We believe Chief is best not to be rehomed with a feline friend at this stage.

Chief is a very solid dog and can be dominant while playing with other canine friends. If Chief was to go to a home with another canine companion they must be able to tolerate the way Chief plays. He isn’t aggressive towards other dogs, he just likes set the level of play. If you have a small, timid or elderly dog, Chief would not be a suitable playmate.

Type of household: Chief loves his humans and is the most loyal boy. His new family must allow him within the family home and have an active lifestyle to keep this precious boy happy and healthy. Chief has a tendency to snatch treats. This is an area that will need correction and small children would need to be closely monitored if food is present.

Chief's adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, up to date vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

If you have a perfect home for adorable Chief, we would like to hear from you. Please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions
