Annabelle

Annabelle is a very easy going and happy pup with a heart of gold.

Sometimes when her family return home she gets so excited to see them that her little curly tail is just a blur and she starts to shake before giving you the most loving kisses. Despite her excitement, she never forgets her manners and jumps up
.
Annabelle doesn’t have high energy needs – while she loves to run around she needs frequent breaks being a tri-paw. She’s a girl who likes to spend a lot of time outside and does regular perimeter checks along the fence line so 5 – 6ft fences are a must. She loves to run and sniff in the back yard or plays gently with a soft toy.

While she does like the great outdoors, she is not all that keen on being left outside in the rain – but, then again, who could blame her?

Annabelle loves her people and is very friendly with humans, but she prefers not to share them with another dog or cat. She lives with cats at present but likes to sniff them till they run away. Chasey is a fun game for Annabelle but the cats aren’t of the same opinion. Her carer is working with her to try and curb that impulse.

Annabelle is very trainable and a fast learner. She will sit on command and understands the word ‘no’ and her current training is progressing well with only a pat and verbal praise. She is a clever cookie and wants to do the right thing.

She is comfortable and relaxed with people of all ages, she currently lives with 6 children between the ages of two and sixteen. Annabelle loves spending time with them, even the teenagers (and we all know how tricky THEY can be to live with!)

Annabelle walks well and likes to take her time on a lead but doesn’t pull. She likes to stop and sniff a lot and requires frequent breaks being a tri-paw. Annabelle is her own free spirit and can take her time when being recalled. This may simply be because it has never been a part of her earlier training.

At the end of a happy day spent sniffing and exploring by herself in the garden, Annabelle comes inside at night to spend time near her family. She sleeps beautifully all night on a bed just outside her carers bedroom door.

We believe that Annabelle’s ideal home would be a family who have a relaxed lifestyle and a ‘go with the flow’ attitude towards her. She loves going for drives in the car where she can explore the world from a different view.

Annabelle needs to be allowed to be her own self and not be rushed or hurried along being a tri-paw. She has the most loyal and soft nature towards her human family.

She would be suited to a family who have no other pets. Annabelle enjoys the human touch and verbal praise so she will thrive on her adopter being able to dote on her and give her past and kisses.

Teddy

My name is Teddy and I’m a Staffy X. When I'm happy I squint and smile with my bottom teeth. I’m only young so I’m full of energy and love to play.

I am a keen learner - I have already learnt to sit, stay and wait for my food. I'm still learning to walk nicely on the lead but I will get there with more practice. I like meeting new people and won't jump all over your guests. I do have some manners!

My favorite thing to do is play chasies in the yard with my foster sister. I also like tug of war and having a little wrestle with my Pug brother. I live with a Cat as well, but don’t do so well with her...sometimes I lunge when she walks past me and if she runs, I like to chase, but I'm not aggressive towards her.

After a big day of playing I like to relax with my humans on my bed as we watch TV. I like to nuzzle for pats and ear scratches as I am an affectionate guy. I will also sleep on my bed all night until you get up in the morning, ready for a game and breakfast.

I would love a family that can include me in their activities - I like to be where you are and spend most of my day inside when my humans are home. I would prefer a female doggy friend, but if I am the only one I would need long lasting chew treats and toys to keep me entertained. I especially love goat horns and hooves. I usually don’t bark, but when I do it’s strong and will alert you to anything near the house. I need secure 6ft fencing to keep me safe, as I like to explore.

If I sound like a great fit for your family, please come and meet me!

Tripp

Meet Tripp, a low-energy Wolfhound cross, who has just the sweetest personality and is a real gentleman. He is always happy to see you and his chilled out, mellow attitude is a joy to have around.

Tripp loves going for an adventure in the car and absolutely loves his food. In fact his sheer enjoyment of food does make him a very enthusiastic learner!

Despite being a bit of a lounge lizard, Tripp enjoys going for a stroll. He is pretty good on a lead, likes meeting new people and is happy to give a passing dog a sniff hello.

Tripp loves being with his people and would ideally have a forever family that is home more often than not and as we said before, he is always up for an adventure so going out and about with his people is something he really enjoys. He loves putting his head in your lap for a pat and then will lay down at your feet for a snooze.

Tripp doesn’t bark at people going past, he is not a digger and hasn’t tried to escape the yard at all. He doesn’t mind a bath, knows how to sit and is learning to sit and wait before being allowed in the door or to eat his food. He is toilet-trained and is happy to sleep inside or outside. He is currently crate trained overnight.

Tripp is amazing with children (his foster home has kids aged 7-14 years) and despite his size, is very gentle with them. He'd also be fine with a dog-savvy cat. However, ideally Tripp would prefer to be the only animal in the family as he loves to keep all the attention to himself.

So, if you are looking for a laid back, low-energy kind of dog to join your family or a mate to take to work, then Tripp is the dog for you. He would so love to meet you and find his forever family!

Ashton

Hi my name is Ashton or Ash for short. I am a large male great dane x bull arab.

I am great with all my humans including kids and am a gentle boy when playing.

I know my basic commands and will sit and wait for the ok to eat at dinner time. And boy, I do like my dinner! My Foster Ma and Pa say I am a quick learner and I would love it if you'd teach me more.

I would be best suited to a home with a submissive female playmate or as your only dog.

I would love it if you had a big yard to play zoomies in, and a big couch inside to cuddle on when I'm done. In fact, my most favorite thing is to cuddle up to my humans.

So if you think you have room in your life for a true gentleman then I am definitely your man.

Zing

Hi my name is Zing! I think I'm called Zing because I like to run so fast and I have lots of energy! I love chasing my fur foster brother around the backyard but my absolute favourite games are fetch and tug-of-war. You'll need high fences because I'm quite the athlete. As much as I love outside play time, I'm also quite partial to a lazy lie in the sun.

I love all humans so much. I mistakenly think I'm very small and will always try and sit on your lap for cuddles and pats. I stay outside during the day, and at night I lay on the couch with my Foster Mum and hang out. I'm toilet-trained so I can be left inside no worries and I'm also crate-trained - that's where I sleep at night.

My Foster Mum says I'm super smart because I learnt sit, stay and drop in only 10 minutes! I wait for my food and I'm learning how to be gentle when taking treats from your hand.

I'm looking for a family with or without another dog to play with. I don't really understand cats and I like to chase them. If you have kids, I'd love some to play with. I currently live with a 4 year old and am very gentle with him.

If I sound like your kind of fun-loving dog, then come and meet me. I'll be waiting!

Murphy

Hi, I’m Murphy!

I’m a fun-loving, happy boy who loves nothing better than cuddling up with you!

I LOOOOOOOVE the ball and fetch is one of my favourite games. If you turn the hose on I like to chase that around as well. It's so much fun!! I love all of my toys and am pretty good at keeping myself occupied. I like cats and some dogs. I need to be introduced properly to other dogs, otherwise I can be a bit noisy and bark at them.

I have never been around kids very much so it would be best if I went to home that did not have children.

I don’t mind being at home during the day while you’re at work, but I do love to be included in the family and have cuddles when you come home! I’d love to be taken for walks to burn off some of my energy but I also love to play around in the yard with my toys as well.

I'd love to be a part of your life and if I sound like the dog for you, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Dogs like me don't hang around for long.

Suki

Suki is the smiliest puppy around town! She has beautiful piercing orange eyes and has so much love to give.

She lives for pats and loves to run around the yard with her humans. Suki would need a daily walk or run and an opportunity to play with her humans at home every day, as she has a medium-high energy level. An average-sized yard and a 5ft fence will keep Suki safe and happy at home.

She loves all dogs and humans of every shape and size. Suki can be protective of her fur family of cats, dogs and Guinea pigs. She is not fond of storms or loud noises but can settle easily with love and comfort.

She is the most affectionate and loving pup, and there's not a mean bone in her body. All Suki wants is a forever home with a family that accepts her huge heart and generous nature.

If Suki sounds like the girl for you, get in touch with Precious Paws today!

Sassy

Sassy is such a gentle soul. She has so much love to give and is very loyal towards her foster family (adults and kids). She wants to be your one and only dog, as other dogs/cats do frighten her no matter their size. She does warm up to others eventually, it just takes a lot of guidance and patience.

Sassy is a smart girl who learns quickly and has great house manners - she sits when she's told, she knows where her sleeping spot is and she knows she's not allowed on the bed. Sassy is also toilet-trained, so that makes her a good inside/outside dog. She doesn’t mind where she sleeps inside, as long as she has somewhere warm and comfy to lay.

Although quite a big solid girl, Sassy still thinks she’s a lap dog and loves a good cuddle on the couch while watching a movie. She is extremely well behaved. If she ever plays up (which is hardly ever) she just needs a little mental or physical stimulation like a quick walk or ball game. She is great on lead as she walks beside you without any real guidance. Being quite a laid-back dog, Sassy is happy to go for a leisurely walk or play with her ball or squeaky toys each day, and then come inside and relax with her family members.

Sassy is athletic and has a very high jump. As such she will need high fences (at least 6ft) to keep her safe at home. Having said that, with a loving family who devotes time to her daily, Sassy won't want to be going anywhere!

All up, she would be an awesome addition to any family, so contact Precious Paws to meet her soon!

Bandit

Hi, my name is Bandit!

I may look big and tuff but I'm really a marshmallow at heart. I love kisses and cuddles from humans.  I have so much love to give a family. I am very friendly towards other dogs and play wonderfully with my older foster brother.

I love cuddles, sitting in awkwardly on your lap and will demand petting with my adorable puppy dog eyes.  My human family are trying to make me understand how big I am and how fast I can run, so for the safety of little ones, my furever home would have children no younger than early teens

I have learnt to wait for food but I do like to guard my food around other dogs so it is best to feed me on my own.  I have 5ft fences here and probably shouldn't have anything lower because I do love to jump, not that I've ever escaped here, because the food is too good!

My non-stop energy means I will need a home with a larger yard and regular walks. I love chasing balls...and I even bring them back to you! If i want your attention I will chase my tail in a circle unit I get it. Oh...and that long thing where the water comes out the end in the garden....I love, love, love chasing the water!

I am very loyal and would make a great guard dog as my warning bark is impressive but I’ve been told it's all for show. I would benefit from older puppy school to help my furever family really bring home what I have started to learn as a foster dog. 

I would love to have my own special family, is that you?

If so, come and meet me as you will fall in love with me, just like my foster family has done!!

Sally

My name is Sally or 'Sal' as my foster Mum often calls me. I'm great with children - I play with our 1 yr old grandson and I’m very gentle with him. I never knock him over. I get on with the cats and the small family dog. My foster mum says I’m very submissive and friendly.

I don't mind if you have another dog or not to be my fur buddy. If not, ideally my new family will have lots of time to spend with me and include me in all the family adventures.

I’ve learnt to sit and shake paws on command and sometimes I cutely slide down into a half-lay position. I’m learning to wait until I’m told to eat. My foster parents are teaching me the 'stay' command, and I’ve learnt no jumping up on humans or on the back door.

I spend most of my time outside. I love to play with my toys. My favourite toy is a treat ball that my foster Mum got me from Kmart for $3 - it’s the best! When I have inside time, I loves cuddles and belly scratches. I’m very good inside. I’m allowed on the couch because I’m very well behaved. I know I have to go to the toilet outside. My favourite inside activity is watching T.V and cuddling next to my foster Mum.

I walk well on a lead. I'm good in the car too. My foster Mum says because I can jump, you will need to have 6ft fences. I’ve never tried to get out of the yard but she says tall fences would be best.

I very rarely bark. In fact when my foster parents heard me bark for the first time they didn’t think that big bark was coming from me! My foster Dad says I’m going to be a very loyal and protective dog.

I look forward to meeting you and being apart of your family!
