Biffa has been at the Animal Shelter since 25/5/13.
Big hearted Biffa is a super fun dog who can’t wait to find his special someone. No one as beautiful as our boy Biffa should be left waiting without a family and home to call his own for so long. He is a great dog with personality plus and a face that will melt any dog lovers heart. He is so much fun to be with as he loves to play, run and be silly, Biffa especially loves a good game of tug of war. He also loves the beach and any kind of activity involving water, he goes absolutely nuts for water which is highly entertaining to watch. He is very smart and will excel with training as he is keen to learn and please. Biffa needs a home where his new people have time to spend with him, take him on family adventures and provide him with daily exercise and play time. Biffa is terribly affectionate, he loves his cuddles and smooches and is irresistible in everyway. Beyond cute is our Biffies with his spots, cuddly stocky body and big gorgeous head and those eyes are just irresistible. Biffa is desperate to begin his new life, he just wants the love and comfort that only a loving home can provide.
Beautiful Biffa has gone off to our wonderful friends at Staffy Rescue, where he will be available for adoption. Please contact them if you would like more information on this very special email@example.com
Vivienne - has got a new home!
Breed: Basenji cross Dingo
Age: 8 months approx
Vivienne has been at the Animal Shelter since 21/08/2013.
This description of Vivienne has been written by her current foster carer:
Vivienne is a stunning, sweet girl who I can't take anywhere without people commenting on how beautiful she is or how she resembles a fox or deer fawn. She is beautiful inside and out but had a rough start to life which has made her timid around new people. Though in the last two months as her foster Mum I have had the pleasure of seeing her steadily blossom into her true charismatic self once she realised there was nothing to be afraid of in my company.
In many ways Vivienne is a late bloomer and is only just learning to be a dog, let alone a puppy. Currently she is learning that play biting is not ok (having a natural Kelpie herding drive), and her recall is rapidly improving. Vivi needs someone who understands the commitment and importance of continuing her training with consistence and kindness. Because of her past she will not respond well to anything other than positive reinforcement. She is unsure of new people touching her so her new family will need to be patient and not force her until the time and treats have gained her trust. But once she trusts you and looks at you with those beautiful eyes you will know unconditional love.
She is a very good girl on the lead and is happiest by your side...she needs at least one daily walk/run to release that puppy energy and to stimulate her mind. She is currently an indoor/outdoor dog in a home with a cat and has to go to a home with a well sized, very secure garden. Vivienne LOVES water, whether it is running under the hose 'catching' the water, playing in a puddle, or swimming. She also loves a game of fetch, playing with her toys, and absolutely adores all animals she comes in to contact with: horses, sheep, cats, and especially dogs -you name it she loves it and is very submissive... Though her Kelpie side does shine when it comes to chasing birds! Vivienne has discovered the joy of treats and being highly intelligent, when relaxed she is a very fast learner. She will sit, stay, wait for her food on command, is a very good girl in the car, as well as for brushing and bathing.
Vivienne would be best suited in a household of a single person or couple without children, and has to be in a home with another dog. She needs a loving, patient and nurturing person to continue her growth into a happy, well rounded pup. Your love and care will be paid back in dividends with a loyal and loving best friend for life. Once she has attached herself to you she will always be near you, 'helping' in the garden, not very subtly asking you to rub her belly once she knows you, or poking her little nose into your face to lick you.
For more information or to meet Vivienne, please call either the shelter on 9710 0401 or her foster carer Alicia on 0401485541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Vivienne is currently in foster care in Newtown, Sydney.

Dandelion has been at the Animal Shelter since 16/11/13.
This beautiful long legged creature is the connotation of what it is to be a big dog. Dandelion is as big as the big breeds get, so this means she will need a big yard to call her own. With her beautiful black, white and spotted coat Dandi is sure to dazzle you, no matter what mood you in. This girl is still very much a pup and she acts like one too! Spending her time frolicking around the yard chasing the ball or bounding up and down the fence line with other dogs, Dandelions new owner is going to need to put her through training so she can learn her basic manners as well as supervised socialisation with other dogs. Dandi will best suit a home that doesn’t have small children, given her size she may accidently knock them down when she is playing, and she will require daily exercise to keep her happy and fit as well as toys that will provide her with mental stimulation so she doesn’t become destructive. All in all this super star will make a fantastic companion for the right family, she is loving and eager to please, she just needs someone to put her paws in the right direction and make her the best dog that she can be.

Ted has been at the Animal Shelter since 11/01/2014.
There are so many wonderful things to say when a dog is as terrific as our Ted. What a beautiful nature this boy has. He is so affectionate, fun loving and playful, handsome as can be, well behaved and so loving and loyal. Ted is looking for a new beginning. He is looking for that special someone who promises to love him forever, for better or worse. Someone to take him on adventures, walks, runs and share all the fun times. Someone who will continue his basic training so he can show off what a smart critter he is. Ted is a dream come true for a dedicated owner or family who is looking for a smart, fun, happy dog who loves to please and he only asks for a home, love and companionship in return. Ted the super dog is an active boy who has so much potential for the right owner, they will be so lucky to have this special boy.

Bambi - has got a new home!
Breed: Jack Russel Terrier Cross Corgi
Age: 4 years
Bambi has been at the Animal Shelter since 4/2/14.
Beautiful Bambi is a bursting ball of energy. This girl couldn't be more filled with excitement when she see's someone. She a truly happy and loving little dog who is so content spending time with her human friends. We can't understand why no one came looking for this gorgeous girl, and are so excited to meet her forever family because we know she will make a fantastic pet and companion. Being a little girl Bambi will need a small to medium sized yard to frolick in, but don't be fooled by her size, Bambi will need daily exercise to keep her fit and happy and will also require toys and other stimulating activities. Like all well mannered canines, Bambi will also benefit from some training, although she is quite a polite girl already. Bambi is bursting at the seams to meet her new family, if she sounds right for you, please come and meet her today.
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Sherman has been at the Animal Shelter since 20/2/14.
Sherman the Staffordshire is as smooth as they come. This bouncy bundle of love will win you over immediately, he is super affectionate, adoring and loves to be cuddled and be the centre of attention. This little man is an absolute pocket rocket who has huge amounts of energy and thoroughly enjoys his playtime and exercise time, he also enjoys his snuggle-time with his special someone. Sherman has previously gone to a home with another dog and whilst he loved the constant playmate, as time went on and he started to settle into the household, he became jealous of the other dog and would prefer when the attention was solely on him. It is for this reason we feel Sherman is to be adopted out to a single dog home. Sherman will require a medium to large sized yard and constant daily exercise as well as socialisation with other people and pooches. This wonderful boy is very upset being back at the shelter and we hope its not long until he finds his forever home.
Breed: Rottweiler cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age: 2 years approx
Toohey has been at the Animal Shelter since 1/3/14.
Toohey the special little man is again on the hunt for his perfect forever home. This gorgeous Rottweiler staffy mix just begs you to come closer with his puppy dog eyes and his charm is so hard to resist. Toohey needs a firm and leading owner who is strong and has had previous experience with dogs. Despite his size Toohey is exceptionally strong but this gorgeous boy always has a smile on his face wherever he goes! Toohey is a medium sized dog that will benefit from a medium to large sized yard and it is imperative he has consistent daily exercise, socialisation and training and also activities and toys to keep his mind occupied and stimulated. Toohey has previously been rehomed with another dog and unfortunately it didn’t work out as we had hoped. We feel Toohey is best suited to a single dog home, as he loves to be the centre of attention and can become jealous if he’s not. Having said this, it is extremely important to continue to socialise Toohey with a range of other canines in a controlled and safe environment. Toohey is an amazing dog who has a heart of gold and just wants to be loved. We feel he will make a fantastic companion for the right person and is waiting so patiently for his perfect forever home.
