Not available for interstate adoption
Medium Male Staffy Mix Dog

Umberto, also known as Bert, is a gentle giant in the making.
While he is still young at heart and not fully aware of his size, he is just an energized ball of love. In addition to being love on four legs, he is also very loyal and affectionate.
Bert can be an adorable doofus, but don’t let the clowning around fool you… Bert is intelligent and loves learning new things. He is just very eager to please his family and show how much he loves his humans.
He loves his daily walk, and then spending the rest of his day being a couch potato. He can be enthusiastic and exuberant, as he has not quite grown up yet. Giving Bert time to grown and the love he deserves, he is going to be the perfect addition to the family.
Will you give this a loveable boy a chance?
Please note: our dogs are not available for interstate adoption. We also do not adopt to people under the age of 25 years.

Victorian Dog Rescue offers the services of our trainer free for six weeks if needed for any settling in issues.
All dogs that come into the care of Victorian Dog Rescue are tested for heart worm.
Victorian Dog Rescue has a six-week full refund policy and a lifetime takeback guarantee that includes 50 per cent of the adoption fee refunded.
We are a community fostercare network, not a shelter, and our dogs and cats are cared for in private homes. Note that we are very careful where we rehome our dogs and cats and we have an intensive process. If you want a quick turnaround we are not the group for you. If you seem like a good match for the dog of your choice we will organise a telephone chat, a meet and greet and a property check. We offer a six-week full refund, free assistance for six weeks for any issues, and a lifetime takeback policy with a fifty percent refund of the adoption fee, and of course an invitation to our adopters’ Christmas party.
We care for our dogs and cats and we want you to as well. We know that genuine applicants have no trouble with this process and understand that if we refuse you a dog or cat, it is because you are not the best match for that pet.
Our commitment to the dogs and cats in our care is total and we treat each one as if we are passing on a family pet. This may not suit you so we point out that there are equally great dogs and cats available in pounds, shelters and with other rescue groups.
