Squiggle ~ Cuddly Labrador X Puppy

Meet Squiggle, a lovely Labrador X puppy. Squiggle had a pretty hard start to life, but with lots of TLC, good nutrition and veterinary care, he is now a happy, healthy and well socialised pup.

Squiggle loves to play outdoors and explore, chew on bones, wrestle with his brother Samson and play zoomies with their furkid friends of all sizes. Squiggle loves children and thrives on affection and attention and will happily play tug of war, or any other games on offer.

Squiggle has been allowed to come and go in and out of the house as he pleases, but he sleeps inside in his bed at night. He is now ready for their forever homes and eagerly awaits someone who has the time to further his training.

Squiggle is a very social little boy and will need to go to a home where he will have an older furkid for a companion and mentor or someone who does not work full time.

Squiggle’s brother Samson is also available for adoption.

As Squiggle is not desexed yet, he will be only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because he will need to be returned to our vet for desexing when he is approximately 5 months old.

If you would like to know more about Squiggle or organise a meet and greet please call Doreen on Doreen.newton2@bigpond.com Squiggle is in foster care near Singleton, NSW.

Squiggle's adoption fee is $550 and includes his desexing, vaccinations and microchipping and she's been treated for fleas and worms.

Gemma ~ 6 Year Old Cattle Dog X

Hi there! My name is Gemma but my foster Mum affectionately calls me Potato Gem. I am a 6 year old medium sized Cattle X (possibly with Border Collie). I personally am the perfect height to pat while you’re sitting down. I weigh 22kgs and have a bit of a mum tum because I've had lots of puppies, but that’s one of the many reasons that make me so special. I was recently desexed and now I'm ready to find my someone special to be there little shadow.

My favourite things include hanging out with people, cuddles, pats, kisses, rolling in the grass, sleeping, and food! But by far I just love the car, open the door and I'm right in there!

I'm starting to play with my foster brother and sister, starting to play with balls and soft toys, and swim in the dam. This is all new to me but my foster parents have been watching me come out of my shell and know that I will continue to shine in my new home. I’m even starting to leave their side and do my very own exploring on my own through the back yard.

I'm very food orientated and learn very quickly. I know the words leave it, sit and come really well, stay is a hard one because I just want to be with you so badly but I’ll get there with practice. I am also getting good at waiting until I’m told I can have my breakie. I’m also very, very well toilet trained and know certain rooms are out of bounds, so I make an excellent inside dog (this is where I currently sleep). I’m so special that I hope you would like to let me
do the same at your home. I am also great on the lead and do not pull. I’m not destructive, I
do not dig or pull clothes off the line etc.

I’ve loved playing with the neighbours kids and their dogs, and I’ve also visited disabled people, both of which I was very gentle with. I would suit a huge range of families. Though I am a Cattle x I’m very much a couch potato who would like a daily walk or a backyard to run with you in. As I’ve gotten fitter my foster parents have seen an active side of me so I would also suit an active family that includes me in all their activities and outings.

At first I had very bad separation anxiety but once I found out knew my foster family were coming back I become much more settled. I’m okay for a few hours inside on my bed during the day and my foster family have been extending this time so now I am starting to hang outside when they are not home. I am enclosed in farm height mesh fencing and I’m slowly getting better at watching my foster family leave home without fretting. I know I’ll get better and better once I’m more settled, I just need routine, reassurance and time. I certainly would prefer a family where someone was home a lot, as I dearly want to be someone’s little sidekick.

I also like doggie company, but I would not be suited to someone with a dominant female
dog. Besides my foster brother and sister, I also live with horses, chickens and ducks, each day I’m getting better and better and more relaxed and I’m learning that they are family to! I have not yet been tested with cats.

I truly am a bundle of affection. If you are after a gentle dog who will love you unconditionally
and provide you with ongoing companionship, I am the perfect dog for you.

For more information or to meet Gemma, please contact her foster carer Chelsea on 0477977167 or chelseakim9018@gmail.com Gemma is in foster care in Clarence Town, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Gemma’s adoption fee is $350 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.

Daisy ~ 7 Month Old Staffy X Kelpie

Sweet Daisy is a 7 month old Staffy x Kelpie, tan and white with a stunning white streak on the back of her neck.

Daisy is still a pup and loves to run and play. Her favourite game is to chase the ball, hasn’t quite got that “ bring the ball back bit” right yet. Daisy’s big girl teeth are still coming through and she loves to chew so lots of chew toys and raw bones are a must.

Daisy’s favourite “things” are chew toys, raw bones, digging in the play area, going for walks and riding in the car safely secured with the window down so the wind can blow through her coat.

Being only young Daisy is a little timid around new things so a patience is a must. Daisy likes children but does not like it when children run at her, fast movements are scary for a young girl. Soap and water are not high on Daisy’s “likes “ list, baths may take some persuasion and lots of positive reinforcement.

Ideal home for Daisy would have wide open spaces with room to run with an active family or maybe Daisy would make a good running partner when she’s older. Ideally a patient owner who wants an active companion. Daisy is more suited to older children who are experienced with dogs and are willing to help train Daisy.

Special request for Daisy! She would love a doggy companion as she loves the company of other dogs preferably around the same age.

For more information or to meet Daisy, please contact her foster carer Penny on pennyneedham88@gmail.com. Daisy is in foster care in Cessnock area, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Daisy’s adoption fee is $450 and she is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.

Max ~ 3 Year Old Kelpie X

Meet marvellous Max, a 3 year old Kelpie cross. Max is a friendly and energetic boy who loves being around people and other dogs. He is playful and enjoys running games, playing tug of war, the paddle pool and lives for pats and cuddles. Max already has some basic training and understands sit, come, stay and down. Being a Kelpie, Max loves getting out and about and would make a great running partner.

Max is currently living with 2 other dogs and gets on well with both. He walks well on a lead with other dogs and alone (he currently uses a harness). Max’s glossy black coat does shed and he will need regular brushing. He is untested with cats in close quarters but has not reacted to them on walks. Max spends most of the day outside, but loves time inside to relax and be with his human family. He will bark to alert you to people being around.

Max currently sleeps inside in a crate through the night and once lights are out doesn’t stir until the morning. Max has done well with his housetraining. He has lived with a family with young children and has a loving personality (people are likely to be licked all over), however as Max is a large boy he could easily knock a small child over. He would be best with a family without young children under 5.

Max has not shown any tendency to dig under or jump over fences, but will need secure fencing and gates with a minimum 5 feet. He has an excellent appetite and currently eats a combination of quality dry food and fresh mince. On his walks Max is always eager to make new friends – human and animal. He would love to live with a family prepared to give him plenty of exercise, cuddles and perhaps another doggy friend to keep him company. Max is a beautiful boy who deserves a loving forever home.

For more information or to meet Max, please contact his foster carer Lee-Anne on 0412588816
or burkeleeanne7@gmail.com. Max is in foster care in Lake Munmorah, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Max adoption fee is $450 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.

Narla And Simba ~ Chi X Maltese And Pomeranian

Narla & Simba are a supermodels! Well they do look like they could be supermodels but are actually a bonded pair, destined to live their lives together always. Narla is a Chihuahua x Maltese girl and Simba is a Pomeranian boy.

This unobtrusive 5 year old pair can become noisy during playtime (like supermodels) but otherwise you would hardly notice these quiet little souls (unlike supermodels).

Narla and Simba love going for walks, exploring new places and meeting new people.

Narla and Simba are learning to be house trained having previously been outside dogs. They are going well but may need some ongoing reminding. These gorgeous babes haven't been tested with kids, cats or pocket pets (another super model similarity) but school aged children would likely be fine.

Narla and Simba don't dig or climb fences but Dog Rescue Newcastle will as usual require secure fencing.

So are you interested? Could you adore this lovely pair forever more? They are waiting for you, so complete the application now!

For more information or to meet us, please contact our foster carer mum Carolyn on cazza1952@gmail.com. We are in foster care in Singleton, NSW and are available for adoption interstate.

Narla and Simba’s adoption fee is $800 and they are desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.

Max And Mindy ~ 8 Year Old Pair Of Jack Russell X

Twice the amount of fun! Introducing the charismatic Max and Mindy. This brother and sister duo are full of personality and charm and are looking for a new family.

Mindy is a slightly shy but a very happy little girl. Sometimes she's so happy that she wags her tail too much and she starts to walk butt first. It's quite hilarious really but she usually gets it under control in a few seconds.

Mindy is truly one of the sweetest creatures to walk the earth. Her doe eyes let you see right into her soul. To top it off she also has the softest coat. She is just so special.

Max, Max, Max ... He's a little bit bigger, always has one ear up, one ear down. He loves a good game with a squeaky toy, steals his sisters food and is super affectionate. He thinks he's the boss of Mindy (but he's really not). Max was born with a bow in his front legs. He does not have a limp of any kind and lives his life unhindered and completely confident in his good looks.

Max and Mindy are Jack Russell Terrier x, 8 years old from the same litter, and completely house trained. Not barkers or escape artists. They are happy to spend the day together outdoors waiting for you to come home, but will need to be inside for company and sleep in the evening. Super affectionate and patient with kids, and have even done well with roughhousing boys. They are so closely bonded, they sleep on the same bed and follow each other around the house. Max and Mindy are not suited for cats or pocket pets.

For more information or to meet Max and Mindy, please contact their foster mum Kylie on sausageandmaggie@outlook.com. Max and Mindy are in foster care in Fletcher, NSW and are available for adoption interstate.

Max and Mindy’s adoption fee is $600 and they are desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.
