Ace

Ace

American Staffy - male

Hi my name is Ace and I came to DCH after my family had to move houses and couldn't take me with them.

I'm now in foster care and live in a unit with my foster carer who I adore and who, I'm fairly sure, adores me too.

I love people, and dogs of all sizes. I absolutely love playing with my friends in the dog park. I'm very easy going and don't even mind when small dogs sit on my back. I'm a very happy dog. However, I do need my exercise and can be strong willed. I also like to sit on the bench in front of the coffee shop near where my foster carer lives and observe people while my foster carer enjoys a coffee. I'm a strong dog so additional training on how to walk on the lead would probably help. I like to be inside with my family.

I would suit dog owners who have had medium or large dogs before and who live an active lifestyle and would give me the exercise I need. I am not suitable for a family with very young children.

Ace was adopted on 01 October 2021 after 4 weeks in foster care

Ridges

Ridges

Domestic Short Hair - male

Bingle and Ridges are to be adopted together as a bonded Pair into an indoors only home.

Both kittens have been living together and have bonded quite closely so we will only adopt them together. Both kittens were found as young orphaned kittens around 3.5 weeks of age.

Bingle was found on a road by a passing driver. The driver thankfully saw the kitten on the road was able to stop and turn around and go back to get the kitten but unfortunately caused a minor car bingle while being rescued off the road so we called him Bingle.

Ridges was found in the middle of a roundabout by a person driving past who thought he was actually a shopping bag at first. Thankfully the driver was able to stop and get him off the roundabout and get him to the vet down the road. He was on a round about in Kellyville Ridge and has been named Ridges.

Both kittens have been in foster care together and play and sleep together. Bingle is more outgoing and Ridges is a little more shy and reserved and together they balance each other out. Both will purr quite loudly when patted. Both enjoy playing with toys and climbing on their cat tress and all over their enclosure.

Ridges has had all 3 of his F3 vaccinations and Bingle has had 2 of his F3 vaccinations. Both are desexed and have had Advocate flea treatments. They are easing Royal Canin Kitten dry food and Kitten instinctive wet food. They currently use a breeders choice paper litter.

We are looking for an Indoors only home for them when they can be kept safely indoors for 100% of the time.

They are located in the Blacktown LGA so physical meet and greets is not possible in their foster home at the moment however we can do a video based introduction and meet and greet and we will have a few hurdles to jump through.

Located in Acacia Gardens, NSW

Ricky and Penny

Ricky and Penny

Ricky: Cattle x Penny: Kelpie - mixed

Ricky (Cattle x) and Penny (Kelpie x Dachshund) came into care after their elderly owner had to move and could no longer keep them. They grew up on 5 acres and have been gradually adjusting to city life. After thinking they'd be OK rehomed separately, we realise they're a bonded - and quirky! - pair, and are best rehomed together.

Penny's a sweet, smart, quiet girl who's happy to hang out with you inside, or catch some sun by herself in the yard. She can be shy at first, but warms to you once she knows you, and reveals her playful streak.

Ricky's a sweet, clever boy, learns fast and is eager to please. He loves being with you, and will follow you round the house and sit at your feet when you're on the couch. Ricky is nervous meeting new people, but is very affectionate once he knows you, and loves a game of fetch or tug-of-war. They both love a morning play with each other.

Both dogs are strong on lead walks and would benefit from further lead training. They know basic commands like: 'sit', 'come', 'wait', 'on your
bed'.

OK around other dogs? Yes, controlled greetings have gone well

House trained? Yes

Exercise routine: 2 walks a day

Living arrangements: mostly inside, with regular access to outside. They're used to someone being home most of the day.

OK with kids? Would suggest older kids

OK with other animals? They react to cats on street walks but seem fine with birds that visit the yard.

Food Routine: A mix of dry food and tinned salmon for breakfast. Dry food and raw meat or wet food for dinner.

Ricky and Penny was adopted on 24 September 2021 after 4 months in foster care

Gromit

Gromit

Domestic Medium Hair - male

Gromit and his brother Gryff were rescued from inside a suburban roof at Minto and came into DCH care at only 3 weeks old. They were initially very shy and scared and have taken weeks to become accustomed to being handled. Now they love the attention!

THESE BROTHERS ARE BONDED ARE MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER. They don't stray far from each other and cry out if one gets "lost" in another part of the house.

Gromit is the more adventurous of the two brothers and is usually the first to explore new areas and toys. Although he still bolts when startled, curiosity wins over and he is quick to pop his head back out.

Gryff & Gromit are very shy and ADOPTERS MUST BE PREPARED to win their trust over a few weeks (it won't happen instantly). It has taken me nearly a month but it was well worth the wait to see how affectionate and loving they have become - like my little shadows!

A quieter home with one or two adults (no children), would be perfect for these kittens to thrive. They are both getting used to friendly dogs and are coping well.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming/flea-treatment, first vaccination (of 3), and desexing (booked in for 17/09/21). Gromit is also litter-trained and eating both wet and dry Royal Canin Kitten food, with lots of fresh, clean water.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting Gromit & Gryff. If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal.

Gromit was adopted on 19 September 2021 after 2 months in foster care

Domestic Medium Hair - male

THESE BROTHERS ARE BONDED ARE MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER. They don't stray far from each other and cry out if one gets "lost" in another part of the house.

Gryff is the bigger of the brothers and a little cuddly sook! He loves a head scratch and belly rub, and will push Gromit out of the way to get attention. Gryff is also the first to disappear if there is an unknown noise but he is starting to become much more confident around the house.

Bella

Bella

Staffy - female

This beautiful staffy, was adopted by a couple from the pound. They named her Chook but soon realised that they didn't have enough time in their busy schedules to give Chook the attention she deserved. Consequently, she was surrendered to DCH Animal Adoptions.

Her foster carer soon discovered that this little darling didn't respond to the name Chook and tried different names until they found that she responded to Bella.

Bella's age is somewhere between 6-12 months. She loves playing ball and her all time favourite thing is to sit beside you on the couch. She is definitely an inside dog but also likes to spend time outside sunning herself.

She hasn't yet been to the dog park with her foster carer so we aren't sure how she is with other dogs or whether or not she is cat friendly. She doesn't currently live with children.

Bella knows basic commands but would benefit from some leash training as she is a strong dog.

Bella was adopted on 19 September 2021 after 2 weeks in foster care

Lebron

Lebron

Labrador x staffy - male

If you are looking for a well behaved, obedient and toilet trained dog, then Lebron is the dog for you
Lebron came into care after being found as a stray. He was extremely thin with badly infected ears however he had the most trusting and loving temperament despite his condition
He sits and shakes hands as well as rolling over for lots of belly scratches. He has now had treatment for his ears as well as being desexed so he is now ready for his new home
If you are looking for a great dog then Lebron is a great choice

Lebron was adopted on 18 September 2021 after 2 months in foster care
