Hi. My name is Sunny and I am an English Pointer cross pup.

I came to Precious Paws with my two sisters very skinny and very frightened. The pound was a terribly scary place for me with all the barking dogs and concrete floors. Now I am in my foster home and oh so happy.

Now I have people to cuddle me and love me and so many friends to play with it's hard to choose which game to join in. Tug-of-war, chasey or tumblies. Too many choices for a happy pup. Life is so much sunnier now.

Oh, and the food. It is so nice not to be constantly hungry. My foster mummy told me I will get chubby if I'm not careful and a girl needs to watch her waistline. But I don't mind. I'm not a fussy eater and I just love everything.

Do you like tummy rubs? Well, I sure do. Every time someone in my foster family walks near me I casually roll over with my legs up and belly bared ready for a nice relaxing tummy rub. If they happen to not notice I wriggle and squirm until they come back and rub, rub, rub. Aah. Life is bliss.

Did you know humans use toilets? Well, I haven't worked out how to do that so I had to learn to go outside for my toileting. I learnt VERY quickly because I like to make my foster mum happy. Oh, and because I am so clever. I am learning to sit and how to walk on a lead too. So much to learn...

I am a little bit shy with new people but once I get to know them I love getting even more attention. I'm not at all shy when I meet new doggy friends though. They have always been nice to me.

It's time for me to find my very own family. A family who will love me, cuddle me (and give me belly rubs of course) and teach me all of those other things a growing pup needs to know. I would really enjoy having a doggy friend and maybe even children to play with too. In return I promise to roll over and make tummy rubs easier for you and love you unconditionally.

Are you looking for a happy, playful and loyal pup like me? Well, here I am. Your search is over. I can't wait to meet you.

See you soon.

Love, Sunny.

Introducing the ever delightful Miss Kalie! (Kahlua)
This beautiful girl is friendly, cuddly and sweet and would make the best furry family member. 

Kalie is toilet trained, knows how to sit and wait for her food and gives superb cuddles! This poor pup has had a rough start at life but has grown to love and trust humans very quickly. 

She is energetic, playful and would be fine as an only dog or dog-sibling, however if she will be a dog-sibling she would be best suited to a home with a laid back dog who doesn't mind an enthusiastic little sister! 

She is a small/medium sized dog who doesn't look like she'll do much more growing (seems to have grown into her paws), she's strong but friendly and will benefit from regular exercise to help burn up her energy. 

Kalie enjoys human company but will sleep through the night on her own and doesn't make a peep! Kalie is desexed, vaccinated and ready to be loved by her furever family- come and meet her and we know you'll fall in love!

Introducing he lovely Karma!

Karma is everything you could ask for in a dog.
She is a sweet, loving, trusting and kind dog. She is cat friendly, loves children and adores other dogs! 

Karma is relaxed at home during the day, sleeping in the shade for most of the time but when she goes for her exercise she enjoys a good run, especially on the beach or at the dog park with other furry friends. 

She is not a barker when left alone, does not try to escape or dig but will benefit from ongoing training on the lead.
Everyone who meets Karma comments on how sweet and loving she is, she is truly an amazing dog! 

Karma will need a home that is going to treat her as well as she deserves, allowing her to be an important member of the family, giving her lots of loving and daily exercise. 

What are you waiting for - make Karma the new member of your family today!

Hey, my name is Zephyr and I really can't wait to find my forever home!

I’m a sweet boy and I’m veeeerrrryyyyyy affectionate with both my humans and other dogs. I love nothing more than to kiss and cuddle up with you all day long and I follow you around everywhere you go during the day - I just love you so much! Plus I’d hate to think I was out somewhere in the yard away from you when you wanted a cuddle. Imagine missing out on that opportunity!

I like to think I’m a pretty smart boy, and my foster mama says I’m her clever boy. Since arriving in my foster home, I have already learnt to sit, shake, lie down AND I’m even working on learning to stay. I LOVE food (almost as much as I love cuddles, maybe more!) and I’ll do pretty much anything you ask me to if you bribe me with a good treat.

As well as my undying love for all humans, I’m great with other dogs, livestock and even human kids! I am not too sure about cats because I have never met any of them at my foster carers.

I’m a gentle boy and I love to play with EVERYONE, whether they be human or animal. So, for my furever family, I’m pretty flexible. I can be an only dog, as long as you’re home a lot, or I’d be even better in a home with another doggy friend to hang out and spend my days with. I’d even be great on a property, since I’m well behaved around livestock. And of course, I’d make a great family pet, seeing as I love kids.

I’d love to have a big yard with lots of room to run around in wherever I go, because I love to be able to stretch my legs and have a good plat during the day. I love playing games with you, and fetch is my favourite game! I’m pretty good at it too, if I do say so myself. I do however need pretty high fences as I have occasionally been known to jump out and go on little explorations fro, time to time. But if your fences are high, we shouldn’t have any problems at all!

If I sound like the perfect dog for you, let me know!! Get in touch as soon as you can so we can meet up and get to know each other better. I know I’d really love to meet you and give you lots and lots and LOTS of cuddles!

Hi, I'm Simba.

My Foster Mum says I am simply beautiful inside and out.

I live in a home with lots of dogs - big and small and I get along with everyone. I love running and sniffing in the garden or just laying around in the sunshine.

I am not a barker or a chewer which Foster Mum thinks is great. I do love stretching my legs so a nice big yard would be ideal for me.

A playmate is a must as I have always had the company of other dogs. I sleep inside at night and love to pick a comfy spot to hang out with my family and get los of pats, belly rubs and attention. I am fully house trained so no messes inside.

I was quite nervous and shy when I came to live here but I am getting better and my confidence is growing. I love the teenagers I live with so bigger kids would be great. I am a big girl so I may not fit in to a house with smaller kids in case I accidentally knock them over.

I'm not sure what cats are so would need careful introduction to any in your family.

I am looking for my forever home. My Foster Family thinks I am a special girl and love me a lot and I am sure if you come and meet me you will fall in love with me too!

Hello. My name is Honey and I am an English Pointer cross pup.

I was a pound puppy and arrived at my foster home with my two sisters very skinny and scared. Now I am a happy and healthy pup with have lots of puppy friends to help me feel safe and loved. I have so much fun playing with my fursiblings that now my life is perfect.

I am a friendly pup and get on so well with my foster siblings that they all want to play with me. I don't mind. It feels so nice to run and play and tumble on the grass with them. Aahh. Grass. After living on a concrete floor, being outside on the soft grass feels amazing!

I had never been inside a house before so had a few things to learn. You know... those toileting things. Luckily, I am a fast learner so learnt house training VERY quickly. I am also learning to sit and walk on a lead. There is just so much for a pup like me to learn. My foster mum tells me I am a fast learner.

I am a little shy when I meet new people but once I get to know them I love getting cuddles and attention. What puppy doesn't? After all, most English Pointers are a bit shy when they meet new people.

I have to admit though that my favourite pastime is relaxing (another English Pointer trait). I am a chilled out pup and enjoy nothing more than snoozing the day away. The other pooches in my foster home won't let me sleep all day. They can be so mean! All they want to do is play. It's so hard being popular sometimes.

I would love to have my very own fur brother or sister to play with (and snooze with) in my furever home. Do you have a pooch who needs a friendly playmate like me?

Are you looking for a pup who is quiet, chilled out, relaxed and friendly? Then you have found your perfect match. I can't wait to meet you.

See you soon.

Love, Honey.

Hi. My name is Marley and I am a happy and playful Bull Terrier cross Cattle Dog pup.

I once lived with a wonderful family with three young children who I adored. I loved having children to love me and play with me all the time. I was very sad when they weren't allowed to keep me in their rental home, but I do understand they were left with no choice. I felt very sad when they all cried as I was leaving but maybe I can find a new family who have young children looking for a new best friend...

I have made lots of new friends now in my foster home - the four legged, hairy kind. Dogs of all shapes, ages and sizes and even a cat! I am very friendly and playful so everyone loves me. It's so hard being the popular pup in the family. Chasey, tug-of-war, ball games... any game is fun when I am with my friends. I get so exhausted playing sometimes. Luckily pups like to sleep a lot (so do the adult dogs thankfully), so I get lots of rests snuggled up with my new buddies.

I am a well behaved pup. I am doing very, very well with my house training and know that if I sit for treats I get more than all of the other pups. I can't wait to learn more tricks so I can be even more clever.

I am a good sleeper. I sleep all night in my puppy crate with my favourite toys and never make a sound. Us girls need our beauty sleep so I make the most of the peace and quiet of my own bed.

Do you have children who are looking for a happy and loving best friend like me? Or a lonely dog looking for a playmate? Or maybe you are looking for a soul mate who will love you unconditionally?

Then here I am! Your search is over. I can't wait to meet you. See you soon.

Hi, my name is Lester!

I am currently looking for my forever home with a kind and patient family who will give me heaps of love and cuddles. I am always eager to please and will greet you with a smile and a wagging tail every time I see you.

Being a pretty smart boy, I can sit, shake a paw, and I'm in the process of learning to lay down and wait. Oh, I'm also learning to fetch, but sometimes I like to be cheeky and let the humans chase me for the toys.

I get along well with other doggies and would love a home with another dog buddy to play with. Then again, if I'm your only dog I'll happily accept all of your attention. I'm fairly easy-going and I will also live harmoniously with cats.

I'm an active boy who particularly loves playing chasey with my fur brother. A daily walk to catch up with the neighbourhood smells would be great and then afterwards, a nice relaxing nap inside or outside. In fact, I enjoy my sleep a great deal and can often be found 'recharging my batteries'.

A regular-sized yard and average fences will be sufficient to keep me safe at home, but honestly I'd rather join you on family adventures. The park, the beach, the shops, the cafe, anywhere really - I'm flexible!

So if you have the room in your hearts and home for me, I promise to give you all of my love in return.

Let Precious Paws know today if I sound like the boy for you!

Nero (Currently In Mackay)

Hi there, name is Nero and I’m looking for my furever home!

From my funny floppy ears with a life of their own, or my big beautiful puppy dog eyes that I shamelessly use to get cuddles, all the way down to my beautiful little white socks on my feet, you can tell I’m already a charmer and a beautiful big boy.

I’m a friendly, sociable young man who loves kids and other dogs. I’m going to be a big boy, but a big body means a big heart and mine is full of love to give to everyone I meet! I’m veeeerryyyyy affectionate, like most pups and I love nothing more than to cuddle up with you and let you know just how happy I am to be in your company.

I’m a pretty clever boy if I do say so myself and I’m picking up new tricks and working on my manners every day! So far I can sit and shake hands with you and I’m completely toilet trained. I’m a dream to walk - I love being able to outside and explore and of course to show you off to all the other dogs (how lucky am I?).

When meeting new people, I’m so excited to say HELLO that I sometimes jump up and get a little too close and personal. However, once I realised that people are ok to come down to me to say hi, I’m learning to control myself and respond well to a firm no if I continue to jump. I’m very polite and respectful when having my say in things, as I hardly ever bark and don’t make much noise at all.

If I sound like the perfect dog for you (and I mean, don’t I?) don’t hesitate to get in touch as soon as possible! Dogs like me, with my good looks and sweet nature don’t last long before were adopted. Let me know you want to meet so we can get together and get to know each other better. I know I can’t wait to meet you and share some cuddles and love with you.

Lots and lots and LOTS of love,

Do you ever just need a hug? I know I do!! I’m Rocky and my foster Mum says I live up to my name. I’m a gentle soul with a strong personality.

I’ve had a long journey already in my young life, but now I’m searching for my furever home. My heart is full of love and loyalty. I’m such a fan of showing this too.

I do like company as I’ve grown up with my brother and a bunch of kids. I would be a little lonely by myself. My foster mum's kids go to school but that’s ok! I get to hang out with her bubba and my foster fur brother, it’d be boring outside without him and I get snuggles with bubba inside.

I’ve learnt a lot of new things lately. They have been fun, like meeting little furballs, first trip in a car, swimming (do you know water wets you?), a photo shoot and how a second chance is all I needed. It’s all been interesting, even meeting my foster mum's cat. I’m not going to eat her, though she is very exciting to try and play with!! I do like adventures so a reasonable size yard and good, secure fences are a must in my new forever home!

So when I need to sleep, I’m not sure which I prefer - inside or outside? Either way I’m a good boy my foster mum says.

If you think that my beautiful personality, unconditional love and absolute loyalty would fit it with you and your family, please ask about me as I’m searching for you!!

Love Rocky🐾
