Introducing Chachi - Cavalier mixed with? we are not really sure! Chachi is a beautiful boy who is approximately 2 years old

Chachi was found in the Campbelltown area and served his time at the local pound. He was quite anxious while at the pound and as an owner didn't come forward we were asked to take him into rescue. We are never in a rush to rehome our rescue dogs as we try very hard to make sure any issues that they may have are treated in the appropriate way before we send them off to a new home. When Chachi came to DAP he was suffering with severe separation anxiety, we took advice from one of our trainers putting into place all of her recommendations, unfortunately though his anxiety remained the same. Wanting Chachi to be happy and not anxious we took our vets advice and put him on anxiety medication which has worked a treat, he is still on the meds and probably will be for some time to come.
Chachi's foster carer Linda has this to say about him.

Chachi is an unusual dog with many funny quirks, he talks and sings along to the country music that Linda plays
Chachi sleeps next to Linda's bed in his own bed on the floor but when she wakes up in the morning he has his head on the pillow next to her
if Chachi is hot he will sleep on the tiles, if he is cold he will sleep in a ball and cover his nose with his tail.
Chachi is affectionate and has a very sweet disposition, he enjoys going on walks with his dog walker every other day. He is a puppy at heart rolling around the floor singing and talking to himself. He gets along with the dogs in his foster home and will make a wonderful companion for a family with another small and playful dog.
Chachi's new home must have another playful dog living with the family, another dog will give Chachi confidence and he is happiest when he has a doggie friend. A family where at least one person is at home more often than not. Chachi must always have inside access. He has a low maintenance coat and is house trained. Chachi likes to go out walking or for a run at the local off leash park.

Please email if you are interested in adopting Chachi.

No photo for Elijah


Elijah is a beautiful, older gent with a luscious long coat and a face filled with wisdom.

Elijah loves to be outside and can most often be found sunning himself in the garden. He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home, a collection of small golden oldies. On leash Elijah or Eli as he’s affectionately known can be a bit reactive to new dogs but is progressing well with his training. Being 10 years old, Eli is a bit set in his ways, he knows what he likes and what he doesn’t, he is learning through gentle leadership how to be a well behaved gentleman but he can sometimes be a little bit of a grump so is best in an adult only home.
Eli is a sweet boy, he would best be rehomed with another older canine friend or as an only dog with someone home more often than not who has some experience with caring for seniors. He does have some arthritis but after a course of anti inflammatory injections is feeling much better, his new family would need to be aware of when he might be feeling a little sore and get him a vet check up. He might benefit from some daily help with something like Rosehip Vital.
Eli needs access inside when his family are home and has a long coat that requires regular brushing to avoid matting.
We know that the perfect retirement home is out there for Eli.

AGE: 12 Months
Breed: Staffordshire Mix

How can anyone look into those eyes and resist?
PJ is next level cute, from his little pink nose down to his toes!

PJ arrived into foster care as a very scared puppy but has blossomed with time... he was lucky enough to spend a few months learning lots of doggy skills with trainer Jac from The Dog Nose and is now a certified #goodboy ;)

The sweetest of natures, the cuddliest of boys, the boopiest of snoots, PJ is much smaller than his big head makes out.. he weighs in at 18kgs and is a nice lean little bully mix.

PJ has found himself in urgent need of a foster or forever home through no fault of his own. He is currently in boarding and it's so important we get this little dude out and into a home.

PJ is looking for the following:
🌟 A patient family that will give him a little while to settle and get to know him.
🌟 Another dog in the home would be awesome, PJ loves his canine buddies.
🌟 Somebody with a bit of dog experience / someone willing to learn! We will provide help with 'force free' trainers if need be.
🌟 Access inside more often than not, PJ is so pink and can only spend limited time in the sun.
🌟 Most importantly a family filled with love! PJ is so special to us and deserves the best!

PJ is $495 to adopt, he comes desexed, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention. He is only available in NSW or the ACT.

If you think you can offer our beautiful baby boy, PJ a foster or forever family please email

Holy Cow! Meet Miss Milky!

This black and white beauty is a social, fun and happy go lucky girl who is looking for the perfect forever family to go adventuring with.

Milky is almost a year old, she is a medium size Staffy mix who enjoys getting out and about and playing with her friends. A truly stunning dog, Milky turns heads wherever she goes.

We would love to see Milky with a family who will love and adore her as much as we do, still very much a silly, goofy puppy at heart, Milky does require a committed family who will continue to show her through gentle and kind leadership how to be the best dog she can be.

Milky would love a home with a friendly, confident male dog friend but could go as an only dog provided she was not left at home all day on her own. Milky needs daily exercise and would benefit from enrichment toys like puzzle feeders and kongs. She is housetrained, has a short shedding coat that requires minimal maintenance and sleeps well through the night.

Milky comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm treated and has had a dental and treatment for skin and ear infections. The adoption fee is $495. Milky is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Milky please email Denise detailing the home you could provide.

If you like your dogs, drop dead gorgeous... look no further!

Dude the dog is not just good looks though, he’s also super smart, loves a cuddle and is so endearing you can’t help but fall totally in love at first meet. Dude is currently in care with an older, small dog and is loving life with his loving foster family. He spends his days, playing with his toys and cuddling on the couch, he enjoys a good daily walk and is learning that the big wide world is not as scary as he first thought. Dude has been working really hard with help from a force free trainer about how to deal with life in the busy city, he has been doing really well and is now a certified ‘good boy’ !!!

Dude does get a bit frightened meeting new dogs so needs a slow introduction, but once he knows that the dog is a friend and not out to scare him, he’s ready for a good old fashioned rumble. Dude has learnt lots of new skills in foster care and everyday gets more confident, he is now ready to continue his journey with a forever family who will keep up with his training out and about. A confident doggy pal is a must in Dude’s new home, he loves to have companionship if his family have to go to work. Dude is not a large staffy, he’s more in the medium category and has a short shedding coat that requires little maintenance. He must have access inside as this is what he is accustomed to.

Dude comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm treated. The adoption fee is $495. Dude is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Dude please email

No photo for Sundae


Sweet, delicious Sundae.

A three legged, whirlwind with a big personality and an even bigger smile.
Sundae is the life of every party and she hasn’t yet met a person she can’t make laugh. Sundae arrived into care as a young pup with an old unattended fracture in her front right leg, after vet investigation and specialist consultation, it was deemed inoperable and her best bet moving forward was to have her leg amputated as it caused her considerable pain. Adjusting to life on three legs was a breeze for Sundae, she gets around without issue, runs like the wind and whilst prone to some pretty impressive high speed stacks, she just gets up and keeps on going.

Living in a very busy multi dog household, Sundae is mostly found wrestling her foster brothers and sisters or snoozing on the couch. Whilst she thinks she is completely invincible, her new family would need to sometimes encourage her to take it easy and remind her that her body is a temple and not a crash test dummy.

Sundae enjoys daily walks, she can pull on leash as she needs to keep up a bit of a momentum in order to stay upright but she does have reasonable recall and does well off leash. Whilst Sundae generally gets along with other dogs, she can be a bit of a ‘full on’ greeter and is learning some manners when meeting new dogs out and about, she is not really a dog-park-dog and is better suited being walked in large open areas where she can be encouraged to make good choices.

Sundae would greatly benefit from a family that has dog experience, even better is working breed experience, Sundae is very sure of her self and can be quite clear in what she likes and dislikes. Whilst she thinks she can run for days, her body does get tired and she needs to be carefully monitored so she doesn’t over do it and negatively impact her remaining front leg. Sundae has been to semi-regular physio and massage appointments, something we feel her new family should keep up with to help keep her comfortable and in tip top shape. She loves children but she can be a bit much for small kids, so feel it’s best everyone in the family is in the double digits.

Her short shedding coat is easily maintained and only requires the occasional brush and bath, she enjoys her time outdoors but she’s very much an inside dog and as such must have access inside as she pleases. Sundae is one in a million, she is a dog you simply can’t forget and her home must be just as awesome as she is.

Sundae comes desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed, heartworm tested, and she has had a dental. The adoption fee is $495. Sundae is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Sundae, please email Denise:
