Tank

Tank

Aussie bulldog - male - 2 years and 9 months

My name is Tank and I’m a very handsome 2.5 year old Aussie bulldog
I came into care after my previous owners could no longer keep me.
I’m lovable and friendly but sometimes I can get a bit excited. My carers have been doing a lot of training with me and I can now walk on a lead nicely and sit when I’m told to. I’ve learnt to meet people nicely even though I’m really excited. I would benefit from ongoing training as sometimes I get really excited and forget my manners
I need to go to a home that has no other pets or young children and someone who understands my breed
My home needs to have a fully fenced backyard where I can run around safely
I’m currently an outside dog but I love coming inside and I’m toilet trained
If you are my forever home then please contact my carer

Tank has been in foster care since 17 April 2022, for 2 months

    Gus and Julia

    Gus and Julia

    Domestic Short Hair - mixed - 10 years and 1 month

    Assisted Rehoming / Private Listing.

    We are hoping to rehome Gus and Julia as a pair as they came to us together and have never been separated."

    "Julia is just as affectionate as her brother Gus but a little more shy. She will be happy sleeping in her own space but loves cuddles at night when the house is more quiet. She will find her brother to sleep with, and sometimes needs a break if he is being too playful. Julia loves to play fetch and have pats with your foot and sit in the sun. Both Julia and her brother Gus are very well litter trained – they have never marked or urinated in any other part of the house in the 10 years since we’ve owned them. Like her brother she doesn’t bite or scratch at all, so is good to be around children although she prefers calmer environments. Julia has been an indoor cat all her life and prefers it that way.

    Julia has lived with kids for many years. She does not bite or scratch but is a little more shy so is more likely to keep to herself.
    We're hoping to rehome Gus and Julia as a pair as they came to us together and have never been separated."

    "Gus is an affectionate and playful boy who loves any lap or bed he can find. He loves pats from anyone and will say hello to any visitors. He will tell you when he’s hungry or wants to play but mostly loves being near you and sitting wherever you are. He and his sister Julia are inseparable, will sometimes play and scuffle but usually just love napping together. Both Gus and his sister are very well litter trained – they have never marked or urinated in any other part of the house in the 10 years since we’ve owned them. Gus can sometimes scratch furniture so scratching posts are a good distraction. They are also very placid and don’t bite or scratch at all, and Gus is great with children.

    Gus has lived indoors his whole life and while he is sometimes interested in exploring outside, he has been kept as an indoor cat

    Hazel

    Hazel

    Domestic Long Hair - female - 2 years and 1 month

    I am not sure why I landed in rescue, as I am already desexed, have perfect litter box skills, am affectionate and well behaved. And now I am also vaccinated and have had a preventative flea/worm treatment.

    I have a friendly yet quiet personality. I love being patted and held and often stare intensely at humans, in the hope that they will submit. When you call me, I am very responsive because I know that means I could get pats. I love humans and think another cat/pet could be ok, in order to break the boredom in-between sleeping, pats, eating and play.

    I am extremely patient. I will not wake you up, nor will I pester you for food, even if I am peckish. I know there is always unlimited dry food available to me. I may make the odd half hearted meow but I am certainly not a stalker.

    I really enjoy having vertical space and love jumping and climbing. As well, I enjoy hunting games where I can hit and pounce/bite on toys/strings.

    I love Whiskas dry food. I also enjoy wet cat food and boiled chicken. Occasionally, I may request a few frozen peas from your plate.

    I would suit apartment living or a house. As I get overwhelmed by too many other pets, I would prefer to be solo or have one gentle yet playful friend.

    I would prefer a small family of up to 3 people.

    I come with a vaccination certificate, a letter from the vet certifying that I am desexed, 1 month's supply of flea/worm treatment and a large bag of donated dry cat food.

    While I have medium to long hair, I self manage the grooming.

    Finally, I enjoy car travel!

    Hazel has been in foster care since 17 May 2022, for 1 month
