Toffee is a small to medium size crossbreed who is looking for an active and bubbly home to match her personality. She is outgoing, fun and always up for an adventure!
🐶 She gets along well with other dogs. She can be a little reserved but is also happy to have a run and play with other canine friends. She is quite a vocal player
🐈 Toffee gets along well with the resident cat. Opie gets along well with dogs and doesn’t run, but we have not seen Toffee show any issues towards feline companions
🧒 Toffee has been respectful of our 2 and 5 year old boys. She does not engage with them a lot and does prefer to keep her distance, although once again - she is never nasty. She would enjoy a respectful child who is calm.
🚗 Toffee travels well in the car - both crated and restrained.
🦴 Toffee had a broken leg which she is still getting into the habit of using again. The vets have given toffee the all clear BUT this MAY result in issues with age. All vet history can be provided to the new guardians vet clinic as per request.
🐕 Toffee needs more work on her basic obedience but overall is a well balanced dog.
What a dog! Polly is an amazing dog who has the most sweetest personality and most wiggliest, happiest tail wag you could imagine! Polly loves spending time playing with the other dogs at our rescue ranging from puppies to large dogs. Polly has a respectful play style and is good with respectful children.
Polly is deaf and has been trained to a vibration collar which we will send with her. Polly has completed a two week board and train at Take the Lead and has good basic obedience through hand signals.
Lady is an absolute staff favourite! She has so much spunk about her and is the easiest dog here to manage! She gets along well with every dog we introduce her to, gets along well with the cats and the respectful childen. She walks well on the leash but does not have much obedience under her belt. In saying that, she is a calm and relaxed companion which will make a beautiful addition to any family.
She is overweight and is currently on a diet. She came from a remote community.
Attie is a beautiful Kelpie crossbreed who has a heart of gold! Attie has good basic obedience and can sit, place, stay, play fetch, loose lead walking, down, drop and wont eat unless you tell her too. She has lived with another dog before, but we feel that Attie would benefit from being an only dog. Attie was unfortunately surrendered due to the owners not being able to find pet friendly accomodation. She did board with Take the Lead for 6 months whilst trying to find housing.
Attie is house trained and has grown up with teenage children. She has not had much exposure to small kids. Attie is respectful and will require ongoing training, socialisation and appropriate exposure. She would benefit from an active family lifestyle.
This girl is the sweetest, most affectionate dog you will ever come across. Not too big and not too small, Sally will make the mosy lovely pet for someone who is looking for a best friend. Sally gets along well with other dogs, but does prefer dogs who do not jump all over her. Sally gets along well with smaller children but would benefit from respectful children who give her space and Sally seems to get along well with the resident cat.
Sally does need secure fencing and she did come from a remote community in the APY lands. Sally is just a delight to have around and we love seeing her little bob tail wiggle!
Buddy came in with beautiful Bella. Buddy is just as loving and just as gentle. He gets along well with other dogs (mainly testing best with females) and would be suited to a female companion.
Buddy walks pleasantly on leash and has basic obedience. He has a sweet soul and would love for someone to love him as much as he loves them. Beach walks, strolls to get coffee, sunbaking whilst you read a book... what more could someone want?
Buddy will make the ideal companion. He has not been tested with cats but has not lived with them at all in his life, and would suit older children as he can still get quite excited to see you!
There is something really special about this girl. I don’t know what it is, but she has the sweetest nature and disposition. She is extremely affectionate yet independent and happy to be alone and lay in the sun all day.
She will need a special human who appreciates her for everything she is. She is good with other dogs, but we do not recommend dog parks with any of our dogs. She would suit older children due to her size and as she moves into the older years of a Rottweiler, she may start to get a little sore and stiff.
She has not been tested with cats or pocket pets but she has never lived with these before. Bella walks nicely on leash and has good basic obedience. She is respectful, yet excited to see her humans each day.
Henry has been such a loved dog with his previous owner, but unfortunately he was no longer able to keep him. Henry gets along well with other female dogs and smaller breed dogs. He has good basic obedience but can get a little nervous with new people. He is never nasty but backs off if he is unsure. Once he gets to know you, he is a love bug and will smother you with love and affection.
Henry will need a large breed experienced owner who is strong and will set rules and boundaries.
Aurora is now ready to find her forever home! She is a 1 year old female Boerboel who needs a very specific home! This is not a common breed and not for someone who doesn’t have large breed experience.
Boerboel’s are also known as the South African Mastiff. They are bred for the purpose of guarding the homestead. These dogs were bred as working farm dogs and are one of the most powerful breeds in the world 🌎
Aurora is intelligent, calm, obedient and confident. She oozes presence and has a sweet and affectionate nature. She loves human affection and will constantly be close to you.
Aurora walks beautifully on leash and is trained to walk on your left hand side. She is not suited to a home with other dogs or animals. She has proven to be respectful of smaller kids but of course, would need to be supervised at all times.
She has basic obedience and responds well to our commands. She is a big boofhead who loves a belly rub. She will need an active family who can provide her with mental and physical stimulation.
Parker is a nice, friendly little fellow who gets super excited to see you each and every morning. He gets up on his back legs and gives you a little 'good morning dance!'. He is a small size Chihuahua crossbreed and even though he is 6 years old, he is right in his prime! He is active, healthy and would love a family that would take him for walks, play with him in the yard and let him cuddle up on your lap!
Parker has lived with smaller children and another dog, but he has not lived with cats. Parker is good in our dog social yard but can be overwhelmed by larger dogs.
