Dogs Available For Adoption

 

 

 

Spike.jpg

Spike

DOB 1/9/23 Male Staffy X Ridgeback

This precious boy has amazing resilience. Previously Spike was discarded, living his life alone in a back yard without any thought by his owner. We are so proud of the way Spike has bounced back and taken his new life by the reins.

HOUSEHOLD - Spike has a happy go lucky nature and a zest for life. He has been experiencing many firsts while in our care and coping quite well. We have found it takes Spike additional time to warm to male humans which is understandable because his previous male owner constantly yelled at him.

 

Spikes overall behaviour is good however when excited his jumps up on you which could cause children to be unintentionally knocked over. For this reason a home with older children is advisable.

 

His new family will need to be understanding of his past and allow him extra time to settle into his new home environment.

 

ON-GOING TRAINING- Spike already knows some basic commands. One area that he requires further guidance is his jumping up on you. He does this out of excitement and requires correction.

 

ON LEAD- At the commencement of his walk Spike is rearing to go. He will require a strong owner who can handle his additional pulling until he settles. Many of our volunteers have walked Spike and they adore him.

 

PLAY/TOYS- Spike loves playing with squeaky toys. He loves them so much he is reluctant to share them with you.

 

OTHER DOGS- For a boy who has lived a sheltered life, Spike has surprised us by how dog social he is. He has been introduced to a number of his pound buddies and all he wants to do is play. He is still learning his manners but we feel he could be rehomed with an active canine friend who is tolerant of rough play.

 

CATS/OTHER PETS- Spike was a bit stunned when he was taken into our cattery. He may have never seen a cat before. Spike was not reactive in anyway. With slow, supervised introductions, Spike may be able to live in harmony with a resident feline.

 

CARE/GROOMING- Spike has a short coat that will require a weekly brush and wash when needed. He enjoys all sorts of handling but he becomes fidgety and wants to play.

 

EXERCISE- Spike has lots of energy to burn and will require a daily run/ walk plus playtime in his new backyard. He also requires ongoing exposure to the outside world and socialisation with other canine friends. At this stage Spike is not suitable to be taken to off leash areas.

 

NUTRITION- Spike has no specific dietary requirements.

 

BREED- Stunning 1 Year Old Staffy X Ridgeback

 

Spike is located at our Erina Shelter and his $500 adoption fee covers: microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea & worming.

 

Spike is an extremely good looking young man who deserves a loving home with humans who want to spend lots of time with him. If you can offer this type of lifestyle for Spike, then please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoption

Benny.jpg

Benny

2 Year Old Male Blue American Staffy x

Benny is a bright boy who wants to be your bestest friend because you are his! This boys main focus in life is to get your attention and love.

HOUSEHOLD - Benny would suit a variety of households. He absolutely thrives when he receives attention from his handlers which means he would benefit being involved in his new family's life as much as possible.

ON GOING TRAINING - Benny has shown he knows how to sit and will do so happily most times even without food. This clever boy is in the process of learning shake.

Benny seems to know he isn’t meant to jump on you but at times will jump around you or land on you, this will need some further training to show him this isn’t how you gain attention.

ON LEASH - While Benny doesn’t pull on the leash, he tends to start and stop due to wanting to check in with his handler. A continued walking routine would help this boy learn how to walk correctly on a leash.

PLAY/TOYS - Benny has shown some interest in toys but prefers handler interaction.

OTHER DOGS - Benny has met a variety of canines, some playful, others not and he handled them all very well. He seeks more attention from the handler, but will play with another other dog if they would like to.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - when walking through our cattery, Benny did not really focus on the cats at all until directed at which he gave them a simple sniff before continuing on wanting to sniff around or get attention from his handler. We believe Benny could be housed with a resident feline with slow, supervised introductions.

CARE/GROOMING - Benny can struggle to sit still but loves any form of attention. Due to his short staffy coat, he will need weekly brushes and a bath when needed.

EXERCISE - Benny would benefit from a walk daily and interaction games with the handler.

NUTRITION - Benny is a non fussy eater who has no specific dietary requirements.

Breed - American Staffy X - 2 Years Old

Benny is located at our Charmhaven Shelter and his $500 adoption fee covers - microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

Reef.jpg

Reef

1 Year Old  Female American Staffy x

Reef came into our care very shut down and did not know anything about the world but she has grown so much while in our care.

HOUSEHOLD - Reef requires a stable home with loving owners who are committed to safety exposing her further to the world.

 

Before coming into our care Reef had experienced so much trauma in her life. We have found the key to developing Reef's confidence is a slow but consistent approach.

 

Once she forms a bond with you Reef is loyal, loving and happy. An adult home where she is her new family's main focus would be a perfect environment for her to thrive.

 

ON GOING TRAINING - Reef has received outside professional training which has changed this girls life. Reef will need continued work in most areas to keep her on a successful path.

 

ON LEASH - Currently Reef walks with a fitted harness and displays good leash manners. She is continually showing improvement and enjoys her time outdoors with her handlers.

 

PLAY/TOYS - Reef has shown no interest in playing with toys.

 

OTHER DOGS - Reef previously lived with two canine buddies and has shown she is comfortable in the presence of other dogs that she has been introduced to.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - Reef happily walked in our cattery. When she finally noticed the cats, they gave her a swipe and she retreated seeking solace from her handler. We believe with slow, controlled introductions it may be possible for Reef to live with a resident feline.

 

CARE/GROOMING - Reef has a short coat which will require a weekly brush and wash when needed. Reef tolerates all over body handling but at times she does not appear 100% comfortable.

 

EXERCISE - For Reef's overall well-being she requires daily exercise and continued exposure to different social settings and environments.

Hawthorn.jpg

Hawthorne

10 Weeks Old  Male Staffy x

Introducing another of Mumma Petal's babies. Born in the shelter, this adorable American Staffy just turned 10 weeks old, and has been enjoying the last few weeks in foster care.

Hawthorne is a playful little pup. He is very curious and loves adventuring in the backyard. He is starting to get the hang of where his bed is at night, and currently sleeping in a pop up soft crate. When he wakes during the night he is happy to be taken outside to go to the toilet.

Hawthorne loves every toy but especially enjoys tug of war with his rope. He enjoys chewing rubbery toys as well. He is doing very well with his sit command, and is very food motivated, and will thrive on a strict routine with boundaries. He's clever and already starting to learn the down command.

Any family interested in Hawthorne will need to have dog experience, and be committed to continuing to provide the structured training, so that he can learn all the rules about being a puppy/dog, and be the best version of himself. He loves playing with his 9 year old furry Foster sister and morning and night time wrestles occur at the same time each day. They are now part of his routine. He is very social, however has puppy manners and thinks that everyone is a friend, which means having to be reminded of his social boundaries.

Toilet training is a work in progress and Hawthorne is still very young, so perseverance, patience and routine are a must. Hawthorne is starting to master the concepts of the puppy pad and the doggy door. He is having success with using puppy training pads, which he will use half of the time. He has also mastered the doggy door, so takes himself out side a couple of times a day.

When tired, Hawthorne is a very snuggly young pup and he loves to sleep on your lap or close by. He will often try to sleep touching his furry sisters.

Hawthorne would be the most perfect addition to a family that is willing to include him in daily activities and committed to providing the necessary structure and training. He would also love a furry brother or sister to play with, but is not suitable to a home with other small pets.

Hawthorne's adoption fee is $800, and covers lifetime registration, microchipping, up to date vaccination, desexing, flea & worming treatments, and puppy training classes.

If you think that this boy could be the right fit for your family, please lodge your adoption interest here: www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

For Kenobi to learn more about acceptable play and manners, he requires continued dog socialisation.

 

Kenobi would certainly benefit from having a resident canine friend to assist him to develop his social skills.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - When introduced, Kenobi did not give our facility cats much attention. He gave them a simple sniff before moving on to investigate his environment. It is possible Kenobi could be housed with a feline with slow supervised introductions.

EXERCISE - Kenobi will require daily walks and a variety of activities to give him the mental stimulation needed for his age and breed.

 

Being a young boy who is still learning, Kenobi's new owner will need to take him out regularly to get him accustomed to different environments and social settings.

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - When Breeze was walked through our cattery she was focused on her handler and paid little attention towards the cats. A cat did swipe at her, causing Breeze to become nervous and wanting to retreat out of the cattery.

Honey use 1_edited.jpg

Honey

3 Year Old Female  American Staffy x

Honey is as sweet as her name suggests and she has truly stolen the hearts of all who have spent any time with her.

HOUSEHOLD- At this stage, she would best suit an adult only household due to her nervous tendencies around new people, loud sudden noises, fast unpredictable movements and new situations but, she could be suitable for socialising with children once she has gained some confidence in her new home. She will need time and patience to adjust and allow her confidence to build with someone she trusts. She has never showed a single aggressive reaction towards any of these moments. She loves being close to her people and would thrive on being involved in everyday life as much as possible. She can be vocal when she is alone and does not want to be and may have some separation anxiety issues so a family who is at work often may not be a good

fit.

 

ON-GOING TRAINING- Honey is very attentive and does enjoy most food treats offered to her. She has a few basic obedience skills such as sit but would always benefit from some on-going training to help her cement a bond with her new family and keep her good manners going.

ON LEAD- Honey is very mindful of her handler and gentle on the lead most of the time. She checks in with the handler regularly and is always ready to listen to verbal commands when given. She will still pull a bit when following a scent or seeking an item that she really wants but is easy to settle and move away if needed.

 

PLAY/TOYS- While she shows brief interest in a variety of toys here at the facility she prefers to interact with her handlers and explore new areas. This behaviour will most likely change once she is settled in a new home and we would recommend offering her a variety of toys and trialling a variety of different games at home to see what she prefers.

 

OTHER DOGS- Honey has met many dogs, both large and small, whilst in care at the facility and she has been friendly and approachable for all she has met. She appears to read their body language well and appears suitable to be rehomed with a canine companion. A meet and greet would still be required for the new doggy housemate/s.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- With cats and pocket pets Honey displayed a cautious and uncomfortable vibe in our cattery. She did enter with handler support and was more focused on investigating the cat food and litter rather than seeking interaction from the cats themselves. When she was hissed at she did bark, growl and do a little lunge forwards in defence. Whilst this behaviour was short lived and only provoked from a hiss (or two) she is not suitable for a home with existing cats or pocket pets at this stage.

 

CAR RIDES- Honey copes very well in a car and showed minimal signs of stress.

 

GROOMING/CARE - Honeys short coat and ease with handling will make her basic care needs very straight forward. A recent paralysis tick recovery will require vigilance with her preventative treatments due to the risk of a more severe reaction if a tick was to affect her again in the next year or so but other than this Honey is smooth sailing.

 

EXERCISE- Honey will require a daily walk and games/time spent wit her in the backyard to help keep her happy, healthy and busy. While she has shown herself to be dog social at the facility we unfortunately cannot test for group dog settings such as a visit to the dog parks, beaches etc. If you were hoping to visit these places we would recommend postponing your trip till around 3mths post adoption until she has had time to settle in and feel comfortable with her recall commands and her bond with her new family.

 

BREED - American Staffy X

 

Honey's $100 adoption fee (sponsored) covers: microchipping, lifetime registration, desexing, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments. Due to her breed, Honey's adoption fee also includes an independent breed and temperament assessments.

Honey is currently located at our Erina Shelter waiting to meet you. If you think Honey is the dog for you, please fill in an adoption application online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions and we will be in touch.

Coco.jpg

Coco

DOB 10/10/22 Female Staffy X 

HOUSEHOLD - Coco is a beautiful looking young girl. She has a loving, sweet nature wanting to shower her love upon every person that she meets.

Coco as shown us that she has not received much training from her previous owner, behaviourally she is still very puppy like. She will require an understanding experienced Staffy owner who has the patience and time to invest with her on going training needs.

 

ON-GOING TRAINING - Coco is needing to be taught basic manners and obedience, she does know sit and will do it happily most times without food. She is still very jumpy and currently learning this is not an appropriate way to gain attention. Coco is very food motivated and willing to learn things.

 

Her new owner will need to be a confident handler as it is imperative at this stage of Coco's life that she is able to meet with other dogs on a regular basis to ensure she remains dog social.

 

ON LEAD - Coco is confident, alert and happy to take the lead, following her nose to whatever is of interest to her, but can respond to “Coco, this way” when changing direction. She can be quite pully on the leash, needing guidance from her handler however she does respond well to leash pressure correction.

 

On the long leash Coco is much more calm and loves to wander ahead, allowing her a chance to sniff the environment around her.

 

While out and about, dogs do gain her interest. If you notice them prior to her, you can keep her focus with treats, allowing you to continue walking without her being distracted. Otherwise Coco does become excited and has a tendency to pull wanting to meet the them.

 

TOYS/PLAY- Coco has shown she has interest in toys, especially a game of tug with a rope toy. She can sometimes get over excited and grab the leash while playing if on a lead but is easily directed back to the toy. In her kennel she showed some interest in soft toys.

 

OTHER DOGS - It appears Coco has received limited socialisation with other canine friends as she doesn’t have the know how to introduce herself in a relaxed way.

 

In a controlled setting, Coco is welcoming towards other dogs and is much more at ease and interacts well.

 

It may be possible for Coco to be rehomed with another canine friend but that would be dependent on her new owners experience and the outcome of a meet & greet with her potential resident canine buddy to see if they are compatible.

 

At this time Coco is not suitable for off leash dog areas.

Pluto.jpg

Pluto

DOB 22/7/22 Male Staffy X 

Introducing Boisterous Pluto! Pluto is a confident, big happy boy with a big heart to match.

HOUSEHOLD - Pluto loves human attention and is very adventurous. He is still a big puppy requiring an experienced dog owner who will be committed to socialising him and provide him with further training.

ON GOING TRAINING - Pluto is unknowing of how strong he is. He does respond to correction from his handler and once his walk has commenced he settles. He knows how to sit but can struggle to respond to it at times without food being used as a reward. He would benefit from further obedience training.

 

ON LEASH - Pluto is a strong puller at times and requires a handler who can manage this. If Pluto sees a dog or gets a scent of something of interest, he may pull towards it in excitement.

With an ongoing walking routine we believe Pluto's leash manners will improve immensely.

 

PLAY/TOYS - Pluto has shown some interest in toys but is often more eager for his walks or time with his people.

 

OTHER DOGS - Pluto can be vocal and pulley when he sees another canine friend, this is not in an aggressive way, he is just very excited to meet with them. Once he is introduced, Pluto is friendly and happily initiates play. If the other dog doesn’t play back, he will often just settle for their company and sniff the environment together.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - Pluto is not suitable to be housed with cats.

 

CARE/GROOMING - Due to his short coat, Pluto would need weekly brushes and a bath when needed.

 

EXERCISE - Pluto would benefit from daily walks/runs, adventures and time in a yard with toys of interest.

 

Previous to coming into our care it appears Pluto had not been well socialised. This is such a shame because Pluto loves being active in outdoor environments but at times he does not have the experience to act appropriately.

 

When he becomes over stimulated, Pluto can become pully and be vocal wanting to meet other canines that cross his path.

 

With continued opportunities to explore the outdoors with his new family, Pluto's social manners will only improve and his excitement settle.

 

NUTRITION - Pluto has no dietary needs and a non fussy eater.

 

CAR RIDES - Pluto loves opportunities to travel in a car.

 

BREED - American Staffy x DOB 22/7/22

 

Pluto is located at our Erina Shelter and his $500 adoption fee covers - microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

 

Pluto is a diamond in the rough, it will be vital that his new family have the time needed to open up his world, taking him outdoors regularly and allowing him within the family home to spend time with him. He is a gorgeous love bug and very people oriented. If you are committed to everything that Pluto requires, please lodge your interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions

Hogan.jpg

Hogan

DOB 27/11/22 Male Blue Cattle 

This boy always has a smile on his face and is ready to give you something to smile about

HOUSEHOLD - Hogan is a handsome boy who is loving, loyal and very people oriented.

He would benefit from a household that is dog experienced due to his strength, determination and active nature.

With some structure and guidance in his life, this young boy has a promise of maturing into a very well behaved man.

 

ON GOING TRAINING - Hogan still attempts to jump up to gain your attention requiring his handler to correct him. He is in the process of learning sit and to focus. With time and a training routine, this will no doubt help Hogan settle and engage in training.

 

ON LEASH - When Hogan is on the leash, he needs a handler that will correct him otherwise he tends to pull you. Once told what is expected, Hogan begins to respond much better to what is being asked and has shown he can be a beautiful walker.

 

PLAY/TOYS - Hogan loves to play and accepts any toy offered to him.

 

OTHER DOGS - Hogan is dog social but still learning his doggie manners, requiring him to be socialised regularly to assist him to improve in this area.

 

He is very cattle like in the way he plays with canine friends- a bounce, then placing his head over them and sometimes nibbling at their ears. Any resident dog would need to be tolerant of his current puppy like behaviour and playing style.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - Hogan initially focused on our cattery cats when we walked him through, however he quickly became disinterested. With supervised introductions it may be possible for Hogan to be homed with a dog friendly feline.

 

CARE/GROOMING - He will need to be brushed often due to his coat shedding at different stages during the year, and a bath when needed.

 

EXERCISE - Hogan would benefit from daily walks and a variety of activities/enrichments to help him receive the mental/physical stimulation he will require to keep him happy and content.

 

BREED- Blue Cattle

 

NUTRITION- Hogan has no special dietary requirements and a non fussy eater.

 

This gorgeous boy is located at our Charmhaven Shelter. His $550 adoption fee covers - microchipping, desexing, lifetime registration, current vaccination, flea and worming treatments.

 

Hogan is a delightful, happy boy who just needs some guidance from his new family while he transitions to his life outside of a shelter. If you tick all of Hogan's boxes, please get in touch with

Nathen_edited.jpg

Nathen

DOB 11/4/23 Male Staffy X

Introducing Playful Nathen!

This youthful puppy is ready to learn and have a home to call his own!

 

HOUSEHOLD - A knowledgeable staffy breed owner would be perfect for Nathen. 

 

Nathen has a joyful personality, always wanting to interact with everyone who crosses his path. He requires a home environment to experience routine and a commitment to help him grow into a settled, confident boy.

ON GOING TRAINING - Nathen is still quite jumpy and needs assistance to learn this is not a good behaviour. Nathen does know sit and in the process of learning to focus so he can master further commands.

PLAY/TOYS - He has shown some interest in playing with soft toys but is often distracted by his surroundings.

 

OTHER DOGS - Nathen is dog social but not experienced enough to understand their body language. He will need continued socialisation with other dog friends to allow him to learn boundaries and feel secure while in their presence. At this stage, he would be suited to an only dog household for this reason.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS - Nathen did show a small interest in cats but once hissed at, he backed away, seeking guidance from his handler. It may be possible for Nathen to be housed with a feline resident after a period of slow and supervised introductions.

 

CARE/GROOMING - Due to his short staffy coat, it will be easy to maintain with weekly brushes and a bath when needed. Nathen enjoys all types of handling.

 

EXERCISE - Nathen does love being outdoors where he can sniff and explore. Continued activities like this in different environments would be so beneficial for Nathen. It is something he enjoys doing and at the same time is building his confidence and social skills. This combined with daily walks/runs, a yard to play in and lots of enrichment toys at home, will keep this gorgeous boy happy and content.

 

CAR RIDES - Nathen enjoys being in a car and is relaxed while travelling.

 

NUTRITION - Nathen loves his food and has no specific dietary requirements.

 

BREED - Staffy X - DOB 11/4/23

Izzy.jpg

Izzy

DOB 29/9/23 Female Staffy X

Izzy is a beautiful girl who loves everyone! She loves to lick your face and give you kisses, she has no boundaries when she wants to love on you.

HOUSEHOLD- Izzy would be suitable for most households however she is a solid young lady who might be too much for young children or the elderly when she gets over excited.

ON-GOING TRAINING- Izzy does need some lead work and ongoing training with her basic commands. She knows how to sit but unless you have food to motivate her this cheeky girl isn’t interested.

 

ON LEAD- Izzy likes to sniff the ground when out walking so at times she will pull hard on the lead. Izzy is a social girl and if allowed will also pull towards other canine to say hi. She requires a strong confident owner to correct these behaviours.

 

To help Izzy, we suggest the use of a harness and a lead or a halti to help control her while out walking. Also a regular walking routine to get her use to different environments and settings.

 

PLAY/TOYS- Izzy hasn’t shown any interest in playing with toys. Staff have tired to get her to interact with toys but she wasn’t interested.

 

OTHER DOGS- Izzy loves other dogs. She has no problems with dogs and very tolerant of them being invasive of her and her space. Izzy is suitable to be rehomed with another dog.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- Izzy was very cautious walking into our cattery. There were lots of cats making it well known she wasn’t welcome and Izzy became quite scared and would jump back when she was startled. Staff tried to get Izzy to look at a cat but she wasn’t interested.

 

For the time being Izzy isn’t suited to be rehomed with cats as she seems too fearful of them and we don’t want her to have any additional stresses in her new home.

 

CARE/GROOMING- When Izzy arrived she had a heavy flea burden and scabs from scratching which has resulted in hair loss on her tail and lower back. The hair is slowly growing back and won’t cause any ongoing issues.

 

She has a short Staffy coat which will require a weekly brush and a wash when needed.

 

EXERCISE- Izzy has plenty of energy and loves being outdoors. She will require a daily walk or run in her new home or even time playing with another dog.

Izzy has shown some love for water as staff have seen her lying next to her water bowl dunking her head in and out of it having a great time!

 

Izzy is suitable to be at dog friendly locations.

 

NUTRITION- Izzy loves food and if given the chance would eat and eat. She is at a good weight now but her food intake will need to be monitored so she doesn’t over eat and become overweight.

Izzy can inhale food at times as she can eat quite fast. A go slow bowl might be a good idea in her new home.

 

BREED - Very Pretty 1 Year Old Staffy x

 

Izzy is located at our Charmhaven shelter and her $500 adoption fee covers: desexing, lifetime registration, microchipping, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

_edited.jpg

Missy

DOB 7/6/2022 Female American Staffy X Kelpie/Border Collie

The one thing in the entire world Missy loves more than ANYTHING is toys!!

She is like a kid in a candy store when she sees one sitting on a shelf, she actively runs for it and grabs it and starts running around shaking it.

HOUSEHOLD- Missy has shown that she likes to be around her people as much as possible. For this reason we are looking for someone who doesn’t work full time, or either works from home.

Missy has shown she is confident around everyone she meets. She can be a little bouncy at times and very over excited when she plays so would be better suited to kids over 6 years old or kids used to being around playful dogs.

 

Missy will also need an abundance of toys provided to her daily

 

ON-GOING TRAINING- Missy knows how to sit. She also absolutely loves doing zoomies with people. She loves when you get on the ground with her and play pounce at her. She can’t get enough of this game.

 

Missy does get very over excited when she is doing zoomies and can use some open mouth play with you. Missy also thinks it’s a game to jump up on you when she is in her excited zone, so she will need some boundaries set in her new home and some ongoing training in this area.

 

ON LEAD- Missy is pretty relaxed walking on a lead. She can pull at times but is easy to control.

 

PLAY/TOYS- Missy and toys….LOVES THEM!!

She is fine when you touch her toys and isn’t protective over them. She has shown that her favourite toys are plush ones.

OTHER DOGS- Missy has shown us a preference for playing with male dogs. She has no issues with male dogs jumping on her and being bouncy. Female dogs she is not at ease and prefers not to engage with them.

Missy is dog social in an outdoor setting however in a home environement, Missy has shown signs of jealously and not wanting to share her humans with a resident canine friend.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- When Missy walked into our cattery she was flighty. She was sniffing around the room and could smell the cats before she saw one but she didn’t want to get too close. We recommended no cats in Missy's new home.

 

CARE/GROOMING- Missy has a short coat that is a little thicker than a staffy coat so she might shed occasionally. Missy has shown us no negative reactions when brushing her or cutting her nails. She can get a little bit over excited when you are handling her.

 

EXERCISE- Missy isn’t suited to being off lead where there are other dogs at the moment due to her insecurities around female dogs. A daily walk and a play in the backyard with her abundance of toys will keep her happy.

 

NUTRITION- Missy isn’t a fussy eater and has no special dietary requirements.

Missy is very gentle when she is taking a treat. She likes to walk away when she is given one but she allows you to pat her while she is eating and take the treat off her. She has shown us no food aggression.

 

BREED - Very Pretty Staffy x (Kelpie or Border Collie) who is approx 12 kgs.

 

Missy is located at our Erina Shelter and her $500 adoption fee covers: desexing, lifetime registration, microchipping, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

Havana 2_edited.jpg

Havana

DOB 6/5/2022  Female Sheperd x Sharpei

Havana loves everyone. She stays close to our staff, following behind waiting for a pat and cuddle. She has a lovely sweet nature and the cutest ears that flop on top of her head.

HOUSEHOLD- A owner with large breed experience is preferred. Due to her love of people, Havana would fit nicely into a home environment where she will be welcomed as part of the family.

Havana enjoys rides in the car and would very much love to join her new family on outings and adventures.

ON-GOING TRAINING- Havana is an all round well behaved girl. The only area that Havana would need some training is when she jumps up to greet you.

ON LEAD- Havana is a treat to walk on the lead. She may pull occasionally to sniff or to meet people but nothing that isn't manageable.

PLAY/TOYS- Havana is a water baby and embraces any chance to play in it. Havana loves toys !!

OTHER DOGS- Havana can be unsure when she initially meets other canine friends. We believe this will be overcome with further exposure and socialisation with other dogs so she can build up her confidence.

Once introduced Havana is relaxed, playful and happy to be in their company. Havana is suitable to be rehomed with another calm, well mannered canine friend.

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- Havana showed little interest in our cats when she was walked through our cattery. She was more interested in what her handler was up to, had a short sniff and was happy to leave. With slow introductions and supervision, it may be possible for Havana to live with a household feline.

CARE/GROOMING- Havana is easy to handle and laps up any type of handling. She will require a weekly brush and a wash when needed.

 

EXERCISE- Before coming into our care it appears Havana had not been exposed to many different environments. She now embraces every opportunity she gets to explore the outdoors and is a completely different girl away of her enclosure.

 

Havana loves adventures and spending time with her handler. A daily walk and company at home is what this girl desires.

 

NUTRITION- Havana has no specific dietary requirements. She is non fussy and eats what is given to her.

 

BREED - A Divine Shepherd x Sharpei DOB 6/5/22

 

Havana is located at our Erina shelter and her $500 adoption fee covers: desexing, lifetime registration, microchipping, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

DOB 6/5/22 Male Sharpei X Labrador

HOUSEHOLD- Darth is a handsome mix of Sharpei X Labrador. He is a happy go lucky young man who is raring to meet his new family.

He does occasionally jump up when excited therefore young children would need to be supervised until this behaviour is corrected.

ON-GOING TRAINING- Darth is receptive to training. He responds well to his handler and is always eager to please. Darth requires guidance to further improve his basic manners and commands.

 

ON LEAD- Darth is a strong, healthy young man. To improve his lead manners Darth needs further outdoors exposure to help him gain better lead manners. At this stage Darth pulls strongly on the lead to get to what he finds interesting. Regular outings, a exercise routine and lead correction by his handler will improve his lead manners immensely.

 

PLAY/TOYS- Darth is super playful and engaging. He loves to have lots of toys on hand to keep him happy and entertained.

 

OTHER DOGS- Darth is super dog social !!! He has met a number of doggie friends and he was nothing but friendly and playful towards them all. Being a social butterfly, Darth would certainly appreciate another friend to share his days with.

 

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- When Darth was walked through our cattery he was relaxed and non caring. He did get swiped and showed some fear but was also submissive at the same time. It may be possible for Darth to be rehomed with a feline friend but strict supervision and slow introductions will be necessary.

 

CARE/GROOMING- Darth has a short coat which will be easy to maintain. A regular brush and a wash when needed is all that is required.

 

EXERCISE- Darth requires lots of daily exercise and stimulation. This playful young man has energy to burn. Daily walks or runs is a must for Darth. Ball games in the back yard with his family and toys made available to him will also be important.

 

NUTRITION- Darth is a non fussy eater and has displayed no food aggression.

cooper 3.jpg

Cooper

6/4/22 Male Kelpie X Great Dane

Cooper is a sweet boy who can be shy and lacks some confidence. He is very loving towards the people he knows but needs time to adjust to new people. We are looking for a caring owner who will gently open up this boys world.

HOUSEHOLD- Cooper's nature and behaviour is indicative of leading a sheltered life. His confidence has improved since he came into our care, but being in a shelter environment, we cannot provide all of Coopers confidence building needs. To nurture Cooper to further boost his confidence, he requires an understanding and experienced dog owner to guide him.

 

Cooper requires is further exposure to different environments, social settings and the security of a loving home for him to grow and blossom.

At this stage Cooper is suitable for a household with children 12 + which are non boisterous and confident.

ON-GOING TRAINING- Cooper is easily distracted by what is going on around him. To get him to focus and listen, we use treats which works well. Cooper does know some basic commands which is a good foundation for further training.

ON LEAD- Cooper is a strong boy and requires a fit, strong handler. He has received some lead training and is manageable. We believe a consistent exercise routine will further improve Coopers lead manners and his overall behaviour when exploring the outdoors.

PLAY/TOYS- Cooper will play with toys now and then but overall he has shown little interest in them.

OTHER DOGS- Cooper requires on going dog socialisation. We have introduced him to a number of his pound buddies. Due to his limited exposure to dogs in the past, Cooper copes quite well but he lacks the correct manners when introducing himself. He becomes excited and a little pushy.

Cooper requires further controlled dog socialisation. At this stage until his doggie manners improve, Cooper is only suitable as an only boy of the household. Cooper is not ready nor suitable for off lead dog parks etc.

CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- Cooper was quite scared when he was walked through our cattery and instantly wanted to leave. We believe a home without cats is advisable.

CARE/GROOMING- Cooper requires bathing every 3-4 weeks to minimise shedding and maintain healthy skin and coat. Brushing Cooper's coat weekly will also assist in minimising shedding and be a great bonding opportunity.

EXERCISE- Cooper would thrive being walked daily and given opportunities to experience everyday life. Due to Cooper being previously under socialised, he can be cautious in new environments. By exercising him regularly, his confidence will only get better.

NUTRITION- Cooper is a non fussy eater.

BREED - Gorgeous Great Dane x Kelpie

Cooper is located at our Erina Shelter and his $300 adoption fee covers: desexing, lifetime registration, microchipping, current vaccination, flea & worming treatments.

Cooper is a loving boy who deserves a loyal family to dote on him. If you tick all of Cooper's rehoming requirements, please lodge your adoption interest online www.socaresanimalcarefacility.com.au/adoptions
