Ace

Ace

American Staffy - male - 1 year and 8 months

Hi, I’m Ace! 👋
I'm an almost 2-year old Staffy boy with lots of love to give. Although my family loves me dearly, they’ve made a very hard decision to find another great home for me.
I love people and dogs of all sizes and absolutely love playing with my friends at the dog park.

I'm very easy going and don't even mind if small dogs sit on my back!
I'm a very happy dog and love my exercise and daily walks. I'm a big strong boy, so extra lead training will help.
I would love to be inside with my family for most of the day. High fencing and a big backyard would be ideal.
I would suit owners with previous experience with medium to large dogs and who live an active lifestyle and would give me the exercise I need. I love having kids around, but very small children might be a bit intimidated by my size even though I’m very friendly.
I will miss my furry sibling, so living with another dog would be great, or I could happily soak up
all of your attention on my own!
If you think I’d be a perfect part of your family, please contact Kerrie and Adam on 0411 811 081.

Ace comes:
🐾 desexed
🐾 microchipped (900164002012917)
🐾 flea, tick and worm treated

Percy

Percy

DSH - male - 9 months and 4 weeks

Percy came into care after being found injured on the street, suspected hit by a car. He had to have complete rest for 8 weeks.
Percy still has a limp and is unable to jump like other cats.
What Percy lacks in physical abilities he makes up for with his beautiful gentle nature. Percy is that 1 in a million cat, he is affectionate, placid and follows his foster carer around like a little puppy.

Murphy

Murphy

DSH - male - 8 months and 2 weeks

Murphy is a handsome young cat, he came into care after being found in a school yard with his siblings at the young age of 7 weeks.
He is a nervous boy and would be best suited to a home where he will be the only cat where he can bond with his new family. He is in care with 2 other cats who demand cuddles and attention, this means Murphy just stays at arms length as he is nervous.
Murphy loves to play and sleep with his 2 foster cats, he loves to sit at the door and watch the world go by.
Murphy is happy to come and sit on the lounge beside you when the other cats are not around but as soon as they come up for cuddles he leaves them to it, this is why I think he deserves a home of his own where he won’t have to compete for attention

Murphy has been in foster care since 09 June 2022, for 2 weeks
