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
If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs please email and tell us all about your family, other pets, lifestyle, accommodation and anything else relevant to your enquiry, this information helps us to know if the dog you are enquiring about will suit your family. As all of our rescue dogs are in foster care in private homes we know what our dogs want and need to keep them happy when they are adopted by their new family. Home visits are done to check fencing, meet family members and other animals in the home. Once the home check is complete you are welcome to visit the dog in his foster home and all going well the dog will go on a two week trial with your family. We are always happy to extend the trial period if necessary. If for any reason at any time the adoption fails please contact us immediately, we will always take our dogs back into care
