Coco

Coco

Jack Russell/Shih-tzu - female

Hi, I'm Coco. I was purchased from my original owner and have lived out west for 5 years. My owners are going overseas and have surrendered me into the care of DCH Animal Adoptions in the hope that my new and hopefully last forever home is found.

I am a playful girl and have already been desexed. I am friendly toward other dogs and not really worried about cats. I like my food a little too much which means I could do with a little waist trimming.

I'm looking for a family who can be with me most of the time. I am smoochy once I get to know you.

I walk gently on the lead and have mastered using the doggie door.

Coco is yet to be vet checked.

Coco was adopted on 12 June 2022 after 2 days in foster care

Axel

Axel

Maltese/Shih tzu - male

Anxious boy 8.9kg Axel was surrendered into DCH Care as an urgent request from the Pound. He has calmed down considerably by being in care. Seems to be scared of felines but tries to play with other dogs.

He loves discovering the back yard so will need a back yard, no apartment.

Initially did not like the lead. Foster carer will arrange vet check, Heartworm check and C5 vaccination.

1st photo was taken after 2 days in care. 2nd photo was taken at the Pound after he was surrendered.

Axel was pacing towards the front door continuously on his arrival, however settled down overnight and especially after he had a warm bath the next day.

Since arriving at the 2nd foster house, he has been on several walks, now walking well on the lead and has met several doggie friends.

Currently on a successful trial at present.

Axel was adopted on 07 June 2022 after 1 month in foster care

Ash (now Emma)

Ash (now Emma)

Rottweiler X Bullmastif X Am s - female

Ash has now been adopted!

This beautiful and cute puppy is a Rottweiler X Bullmastif X Am Staffy mix and has been surrendered into DCH Foster care to be rehomed.
We currently have 6 of these puppies from this litter in care separated between 3 different foster homes in 3 different suburbs.

At present we are taking expressions of interest until we have confirmed when we will be able to get them desexed at the vets prior to being able to rehome them. We are aiming to have them ready for adoption around 26th May give or take which is when their 2nd vaccination is due however it depends on when the vets will be willing to complete their desexing surgery.

They have received a basic health check at the vets on 26th April and have received their 1st Vaccination.
They have been microchipped and have received a worming treatment and will be dewormed every 2 weeks.
If your interested in adopting, please submit an enquiry / expression of interest and we will contact you to discuss further and can keep you updated on when we expect to be in a position to rehome them.

A little of what we know about Ash so far:

Ash is such an energetic and playful puppy, she always seems happy.
She is also a little bit sassy and sometimes stubborn; she knows what she wants and will make sure you know it too.
She is very food motivated and smart so definitely has the potential to be a very well behaved and entertaining pup, with some more training.
Ash is still learning that no matter how adorable it is, she is actually not supposed to grab the lead and take humans for a walk. She loves to play with tug toys and leap around like a deer, and has a cute little quirk, she likes to search the yard for leaves to play with, and not just any leaf it has to be the right one.
She is likely to grow into big dog and therefore will need a family with dog training experience to help her learn and grow into the amazing girl he is destined to be.

Fluffy and Rusty

Fluffy and Rusty

Maltez cross and Jack Russell - male

Fluffy (white Maltez cross 10 years) and Rusty (black and white Jack Russell cross 6 years) are beautiful loving desexed boys.

Their elderly owner is under palliative care and the family is not in a position to take the dogs on. Fluffy was rescued from the pound when he was 3 years old and Rusty became his adopted brother as a puppy. These two have been living as brothers for the last 6 years and dearly love each other. That's why they are being rehomed together.

Fluffy and Rusty are extremely loyal, intelligent, and loving. They are very attentive and love nothing more than cuddles. Both dogs are very friendly, good with visitors, good with other dogs and I'm sure would be good with children but there haven't been many children around. Both are good on the lead.

They cannot be rehomed with cats as they catch wild rabbits on the property where they live. Rusty has been on injections for allergies but it is likely to be food or plant allergies. There is an abundance of weeds in their yard that dogs are allergic to.

They've had the run of the house and need some kind discipline.

All vaccinations and medicals are up to date. Full medical history for both dogs is available.

If you've got some sunshine you can give Fluffy and Rusty they'll return it to you and tonnes more.

Fluffy and Rusty was adopted on 23 May 2022 after 2 weeks in foster care

A little of what we know about Willow so far:

Willow is a beautiful happy girl who steals people’s hearts with her eagerness for cuddles.
She is intelligent and food motivated, but i believe her biggest incentive to learn is love and praise. She learned very quickly that if she went on the puppy pad, she would get a round of applause and lots of pats and she was hungry for more.
So eager in fact that she would randomly go sit on the puppy pad and look straight at you, her eyes saying look at me I did it, give me love, please.
While very cute, and possibly a little sneaky she has now started to work out that you actually have to do something on the potty to get your treat not just sit on it haha.
Willow does get a little separation anxiety if left on her own for long and therefore would need a family that has plenty of time to give her all the attention and love she deserves.

This puppy is located in: Kingswood (Penrith Area)

Willow was adopted on 21 May 2022 after 4 weeks in foster care

Teddy

Teddy

Maltese x - male

Teddy is a gorgeous little teddy bear who has been through some tough times recently and is now looking for a loving forever home where he can live out his life in comfort and love.

Teddy was rescued from the pound and was a little neglected he's had some work done to his teeth and lost a few along the way. He is partially blind and is also deaf. But he hasn't let any of that get him down.

He is toilet trained and you can use hand signals to if you want to tell him to sit . He is very gentle and loves a cuddle and going for short walks. He currently lives with a family who has chickens and a rabbit and he doesn't bother them. However, the other dog in the family and Teddy aren't great friends so maybe he is best as an only dog.

Teddy would be ideal for a person or family who wants a dog as a companion to keep them company and go for short walks.

Teddy was adopted on 18 May 2022 after 1 month in foster care

Mercedes

Mercedes

Maltese x silky terrier - female

Hi my name is Mercedes and Im a 16 year old (yes I know Im older than the Queen) silky terrier X maltese

When I came into DCH care, I was in a bad way. I had a HUGE tumour hanging off my shoulder which weighed 800g and I was very matted. I was wandering the streets carrying this huge burden before I was rescued but after having a haircut and bath as well as having that huge thing taken off my shoulder, Im a new lady

I know some people will be thinking that Im too old to be adopted but let me tell you a thing or two. Im a little feisty old lady who loves going for walks ( I dare you to keep up) and I love my dinner

Ive been to the lovely doctor who has told me that although I have a few lumps and bumps, I do not need any medication to keep me fit and healthy. I walk with a bit of a limp but who doesn't at my age and it doesn't stop me from getting into mischief

I would prefer a home with no other dogs or kids as at my age you don't need any of those whipper snappers getting in your way and cats are definitely a no no

So if you like going for walks and if you have a sunny garden with a fenced yard then I am the dog for you. Don't let my age put you off, call my carer today because I would love to meet you xx

Mercedes was adopted on 18 May 2022 after 4 months in foster care
