Charlie Browne And Jinx ~ Bonded Pair

Hey there! We are Charlie Browne, a 5 year Moodle (Maltese x Poodle) boy and Jinx, a 3 year old Spoodle (cocker spaniel x poodle) girl. Sadly, we have lost our human mum who passed away recently sow we are looking for a new family who will love us as she did. We are both great with other dogs but may suit a family without others so that we can get the attention we deserve. We are very friendly around new people and want to be around the action in the home; however we are happy to chill out and sleep too. We do most things together. We have been well loved and have been allowed to sleep inside on the bed.

A little about Charlie Browne (Brown with an “e” and Charlie for short). Charlie is a beautiful friendly boy who loves human companionship, loves being tickled under his chin and throat and will often roll over to have his tummy rubbed. He likes to sit with you whilst you sit and watch television or be with you when you are pottering around the house and garden. He is devoted to his companion Jinx with whom he loves to have a game of tug of war, or just play and go on walks. Charlie has many tricks he likes to do, he will sit upright and beg for a treat, give you a high five and he is learning to shake hands.

A little about Jinx. Jinx is a free loving young lady whose zest for life is contagious. She is never too far from her friend Charlie Browne and looks to him for guidance in times of need. She is very beautiful and knows it. She loves to be cuddled and, like all ladies, adores the pampering of a grooming session to show off her beautiful golden coat. Jinx likes to be right next to you or on top of you if you’ll let her, she simply adores people and any kind of attention is just great. Jinx loves going for a walk with Charlie and will pick up her leash and give it to. However, her enthusiasm and her youth means she walks a little fast so has to learn to slow it down a little. As with Charlie, Jinx loves to ride in the car and has now discovered the joy of a trip to the beach and the fun of going for a swim.

A note from the carer: both Charlie and Jinx are just beautiful, loved and loving dogs. They get along very well, each relying on the other’s strengths. They are inside dogs and must sleep inside. They are not yappy dogs but will let you know when someone is around. They can get excited for the first 2 minutes of you coming home but settle down in no time. Both dogs love going out for a drive and travel very well. Oh yes, don’t forget to stop at the coffee shop so they can meet some new friends.

They have the curly Poodle coat that doesn’t shed but does need regular grooming and clipping. They are both house trained and would easily learn to use a doggy door. They are both intelligent and would respond well to further training. They often share bowls of food together and have never shown any aggression towards any of their foster brothers and sisters. of which there are a few. They currently live with 4 other dogs both big (45kg) and small (9kg).

Charlie and Jinx need to stay together as they love each other. If you are looking for two quiet, well behaved and relaxed additions to your home who will show you lots of affection please contact their carer Jackie by email Jackie-keane@bigpond.com. They are currently living in Shoal Bay, Port Stephens NSW (north of Newcastle).

Charlie and Jinx’ adoption fee is $1,000 for the pair and they are desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.

Meet Millie. She is an 8 year old Maltese x girl looking for a new home.

Millie is such an affectionate girl, loves nothing more than a cuddle and a nurse and to go in the car, which she is very well behaved in. She loves to sleep on the bed with you and doesn’t take up too much room.

Millie will let you know if anyone is around, but is not a barker, more of a doorbell. She likes the company of other dogs and cats. Well, actually, she has only been tested with kittens, but she just sat and watched them until she got bored and dozed off.

Millie likes little toys to play with and has her special ones. She has so much fun with toys that you would think there’s a room full of dogs under attack but its only Millie playing.

For more information or to meet Millie, please contact her foster carer Carolyn on 0403 653 001. Millie is in foster care in Singleton, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Mia ~ Maltese X

Hi all! First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Mia and I am 8 years old. I am looking for my forever home and family, let me tell you more about me!

If you were to ask my foster Nan and Mum, they would describe me as a beautiful quiet girl who is gentle in nature. I’m a Maltese cross, about 5kg, white and fluffy small build but have a set of lonely long legs. I live inside and my new family would need to make space for me to continue being an inside girl.

I love to spend my day just relaxing. I enjoy to doggy nap in my own bed but I equally enjoy cuddling up with you. I love to snuggle up with you on the lounge and watch TV (your choice of show, I don’t mind what we watch), I think that this would be my most favourite time of day.

When I first joined my foster carer’s home, I was timid, shy and frightened. I was a bit nervous about my new home and environment, I didn’t know what to expect or what my new journey was going to bring. My foster Nan and Mum explained they were my stepping stone. The stepping stone to my forever home, they made a promise to me that they would love and care for me to help find my forever home. I just need to ask that my new family would give the time and patience to help me gain their trust and confidence, to blossom and grow as I have here in my foster home. My foster Nan and Mum gave me lots of patience so I could learn more about them and they could learn more about me. With a few weeks, I developed their trust and from there, they say I blossomed and ‘come out of shell’. I found myself comfortable and found more self-confidence to be myself from then on.

Although I’m an older girl, I still enjoy a game of fetch and happy to play a game with you but if you’re not up for playtime when I am, I also can amuse myself with plenty of toys if you’re busy. I enjoy being out in the fresh air and sunlight, going for walks to see what’s going on in the neighbourhood where I live. If you’re looking for a good little fur friend who enjoys a car trip and sits patiently in her seat belt, I’m your girl!

I’m toilet trained, I give my foster Nan and Mum a little signal when I need to go, they just let me outside to the backyard and I go to do my own business. My fluffy white coat does need a bit of help from my new family to maintain, I need a regular brush to keep me tangle and knot free. I will also need the occasional tidy and trim to keep me looking as pretty as I can.

I really do enjoy the company of other people (possibly other fur friends) and would love a family where there is people home for a good part of each day. When I’m not napping, I enjoy following you around and to see what kind of weird and wonderful things you’re up too.

My foster family have introduced me to very young (human) little people and I don’t mind, I’ll sit with them or go do my own thing. My foster home has another two fur friends, I would suit being an only dog however may be interested in seeking a playmate in my new home if we enjoy each other’s company. I have not experienced or been around with cats so I’m not sure how I feel about them yet but I currently live with birds and I’m not bothered by them.

Are you a little family or big family looking for a fluffy family member? I’m just looking for my forever home, do you think I am the perfect new addition to your family and home. Do you think I could be your new friend and loving companion? I’m eagerly excited and patiently waiting for that letter to finally find my forever home. I would love to find my forever home soon. Love, Mia

For more information or to meet Mia, please contact her foster carers Joanne and Katie on joanne.katie@outlook.com. Mia is in foster care in Maitland area , NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

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

No photo for Rex ~ Chihuahua

Rex ~ Chihuahua

Introducing Rex. Our 2yo "special needs" Chihuahua Puppy. Unfortunately, Rex didn't have a good start to life before being surrendered to Dog Rescue so has ‘special needs’ and requires a ‘special home’ to join.

**Please read the full profile and only apply if you think you have what Rex requires in his FOREVER home**

Rex takes some time to warm up to people and will be best suited to a home with a middle aged female who has low foot traffic household (minimal people coming and going) and ideally someone who lives alone and is home majority of the time. Rex cannot be around or near children of any age, as he has had many bad experiences with children in the past which has made him unsuitable to a home with children/young adults. He’s not good with males either which is why we’re asking for a middle age, retired, female only household.

Due to his size he will need an extremely secure house/yard (he’s a tiny 2.2kg) as he can fit through even the smallest of gaps and tries to escape when doors are opened. A fully enclosed front and back yard will ensure that he doesn’t escape, as well as an inaccessible (to him) front door.

Rex enjoys playing with other dogs of similar size as long as he has a good introduction. Ideally we’d like to see him go to a home with another young Chihuahua pup or a similar toy breed for a play mate.

Rex is currently living with another Chihuahua, 3 other small female dogs and an inside cat, although he is best suited to a home without a cat.

Rex can display some food aggression if other dogs/people come near him while eating or when food is around so he will need to be fed separately. Food cannot be left out.

Rex loves being indoors and outdoors but he needs to be allowed inside most of the time, as being so small and having short hair he feels the cold easily. He sleeps in a coat and will occasionally wear one during the day as well to keep him warm.

Rex sleeps inside in a crate and he is very well behaved and enjoys the crate as his safe place. He loves having that special comfort zone to call his own.

He is almost on top of his toilet training and has already come very far in this area. He is still learning to sit, stay and come and he is making progress every day. He will require ongoing training - this is a MUST! He has been through a lot and he’s still not trusting of people, so he requires lots of time and training daily to help assist him and is very responsive to food/treat rewards.

**** Rex is only available to Newcastle/Lake Macquarie and close surrounding suburbs only. Due to his special requirements we feel its best that he stay local.****

For more information or to meet Rex, please contact his foster carer Erin by email ezz13e@hotmail.com. Rex is in foster care in Edgeworth, NSW (5 minutes from the Newcastle exit off the M1) and is not available for adoption interstate (Newcastle/Hunter/Lake Macquarie/Central Coast regions only).

Rex’s adoption fee is $500 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered. You can see all our available dogs at www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au

Basil ~ Chihuahua X

Basil is a playful, boisterous and fun Chihuahua, approximately 2.5 years old. He got his name from the children’s TV show “The Basil Brush Show” since he has a nice big bushy tail and a similar personality.

Basil enjoys being inside with his humans or curled up on a lounge. He is currently sleeping in a dog bed beside his foster mum’s bed, as he doesn’t like sleeping the actual human bed. He must sleep in the room as he will get upset when left in another room.

Basil would love to live with someone who doesn't work full time as he loves to be with people. His new home needs to have no children, cats or pocket pets. Basil is very playful so he needs to have another small, friendly dog playmate. He needs a very safe secure yard and home as he can be a bit of an escape artist. He will repay you with tons of affection and amusement.

For more information or to meet Basil, please complete this questionnaire http://www.dogrescuenewcastle.com.au/adopt/adoptionquestionnaire.rtf and forward it to his foster mum Erin via email ezz13e@hotmail.com. Basil is in foster care in Edgeworth, NSW and is available for adoption interstate.

Basil's adoption fee is $500 and he is desexed, vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, microchipped, and lifetime registered.
