SCOUT 

14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.


Face to face meet and greets at the rescue in Bethungra NSW are mandatory 

 Scout 


Breed: American Bulldog/Pointer cross.

Age: 1.8 years 

Gender: male 

Adoption fee: $600



   C5 vacc, desexed, chipped.


Scout is a young lad that was originally a rescue puppy who was adopted out through another rescue.  Sadly his new home didn't work out and he was eventually surrendered to us he then was lucky enough to be adopted once again and we thought his forever home was set in stone but once again this poor boy found himself surrendered back to us months later 😔

         ❌Please read this carefully ❌


Scout is a very untrusting and timid guy.   He takes a long time to warm up to people and is especially wary of males.   Scout is great with other dogs of all sizes and has a fondness and natural trust for children.   Scout is untested with cats.


Scout would need very secure fencing and initial supervision as he will do what he can to escape new and unknown surroundings.


Scout suffers from general situational anxieties. He is triggered by yelling, loud voices and can be visibly scared if a person approaches with an object in their hand.  He's not scared of natural environmental noises such as thunder but is of unnatural loud noises such as slamming doors etc.   He is very nervous in the car.


Scout is not on any prescribed medication and we have been working, somewhat successfully, to overcome his anxieties in a natural way.   Any home however will need to be able to continue to work with his anxieties, being particularly aware of his triggers,  and just give him the comfort and security he needs.


Scout needs to have another dog in the household 🐾


💔 This boy really needs that someone

Who will give his a solid chance, he is worth it💔

RAYNAR

 14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.


Face to Face meet and greets in Bethungra NSW are mandatory 

Great Dane x Staghound x Greyhound x Kelpie   AGE: 1 year 4 months

ADOPTION FEE: $600


Raynar this handsome boy is definitely a head turner indeed .

We’ve done all the basic ground work with housetraining and house manners . Raynar is a teenage lad so does push the boundaries on occasion but with consistency he quickly respects the rules .

Raynar has been running with a large number of dogs but I find he still shows some inappropriate greeting with new dogs initially so slow and steady introductions to potential house or play mates are needed. He is not suitable around small pets , cats or livestock . He likes to even chase the butterflies 🙃

Raynar needs his people to be strong of body and heart . He requires continued and consistent lead training and can get overexcited getting into a walk . To be blunt he still sucks on lead ....just as we think he’s got it ....he reverts back to freight train . With maturity it will happen. 

This is a boy that will mature into a fine family dog given the time and training.


Raynar is Desexed / microchipped / Vaccinated

Nelly does need occasional grooming with burrs finding the way into her shaggy coat .


Marvellous on and off lead . Great in car . A true sweetie at vets . Not recommended for shared digs with cats . Needs supervision with other dogs at introduction, can be resource aggressive if left without management but easily redirected.

MARTY

14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.

Face to Face meet and greets in Bethungra NSW are mandatory 

MARTY


Breed: Rottweiler X

Gender: MALE

Age: 3

Adoption Fee: $600


Marty is Fun loving, energetic and extremely smart lad . 3 years old and I’m not sure why he’s even here in rescue 🤷‍♀️


Great on lead , very open to treat and toy training . I suggest he’s a rotterman (rottie x dobie ) but chipped as rottie . He’s socially awkward with other dogs, only due to lack of socialisation...he just wants to play but not sure of the cues. It would happen in time and supervision. 


Only surrendered as he was growly with hugs from people who took him in and thought him unsuitable after 4 weeks (adopted from another rescue I believe) 🤷‍♀️. I hug him and he’s okay with that . 


Marty is a treasure ...again with strong leadership and some focused training to keep his lively mind alive he’ll be a great family dog with older kids .


Marty is C7 vaccinated, desexed , chipped .

BENNY

14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.

Face to Face meet and greets in Bethungra NSW are mandatory 




Breed: Blue cattle dog

Gender: Male

Age: 3

Adoption Fee: $600



Benny needs a slow calm introduction on first meeting as he takes a moment to come out of his shell but once he does he is a playful and loving boy who craves attention 
We have been working on leash training with Benny and in less then a week he has already improved, due to past traumatic experience Benny becomes apprehensive if he is tethered so he will need reassurance and training but being a smart boy he will pick it up fast

Benny absolutely loves kids so he would love some human siblings to play with, but Benny needs to be the only pet in the household 

if you would like any further information on Benny or would like to arrange a meet and greet with him in Bethungra please call Sue on 0437010492

BANE

14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.


Face to face meet and greets at the rescue in Bethungra NSW are mandatory 


                                BANE

                Heartbroken special boy


Breed: Rottweiler 

Gender: Male

Age: 6

Adoption fee: $600


Our Banes heart is starting to heal from grief so let’s help him find that special person so he can love again 🥺


Bane came to use grief stricken after his owner sadly passed away he has  been with us since the end of February and on top of helping him through his period of mourning we’ve worked hard to gain his trust and convince him that people are okay Bane was brought up in a loving environment but due to his past lack of socialisation it has taken slow and steady process. 


Adding to Bane’s socialisation issues in 2019 he was diagnosed with a condition known as Pannus, also known as Chronic Superficial Keratitis (CSK), an autoimmune disease that affects the cornea (the clear) part of the eye,

It appears that the disease has left scar tissue so his vision is indeed limited . Although it doesn’t affect his day to day living his limited vision needs to be considered if he doesn’t recognise people or things visually from a relatively short distance  . We’ve gotten around that by clearing identifying handlers by voice coupled with scent before engaging with him to ease his anxiety. He’s had no flare ups (infections ) during his time in our care . 


      ❌PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ❌

If you were to consider taking Bane into your home  and heart a very slow and steady introduction over a period of time will be 

absolutely necessary to gain his trust and confidence. His condition can be pulled up with topical application of eye medication so no further damage is done . He will need to be the only animal in the home .


If you would like more information on Bane or  to see about a meet and greet with us in Buthungra NSW call Sue on 0437010492

SPOTTY  (ADOPTED)

14 day conditional trial period offered for all dogs available for adoption.


 Medium mix breed

 AGE: 5 years

 ADOPTION FEE: $600


Spotty ❤️ 
What a treasure this boy is 🤩 
Spot is a well loved family companion only surrendered due to medical issues of owner . Spot is good one on one with other dogs but gets a bit overwhelmed within our big crew . 
At a previous trial Spot was reactive when approached by other unknown dogs on lead. Some experience and knowledge on how to manage this situation will be required. Ideally Spot would be an only dog without the expectation of having to be social with others on walks or in dog parks etc. 

He’s an extremely loyal dog ! Just loves human company and cuddles . He adores the car and is very comfortable around people big and small . He’s a Velcro dog , recall isn’t an issue as he won’t leave your side . He is protective once bonded so he needs considered introductions with visitors. 
This guy is well worth a meet especially if you’re looking for a loyal, housetrained, polite , kid friendly dog that just wants to be with you but is settled enough to be left for a little while . 
Spotty's owner tells us that Spot loves cats and is more than happy to snuggle up with them. 
Spotty's age is guessed. Although we are told he's five he does look alot younger. 
Spot will be a beautiful addition to any family.


Spotty is Desexed / microchipped / Vaccinated
