LEO THE GENTLE LION!

 

8 ½ year young Leo is the most beautiful trusting doggie.  This lovely soul needs a home where he can feel, and be safe.  He thrives on consistency and feeling secure, and needs ongoing reassurance that he is noticed and loved.  This could be as simple as a pat on the head when you walk by him or gently ‘chatting’ to him and using his name.  He would be happy in a stable and relaxed home environment, where his hoomans have time and love to offer him.

 

He is not extra needy in the sense of food or toys, but he is for human touch, cuddles and being close or around his owners is definitely a must.

 

Leo is a lovely car traveler and when he is out on his daily walks, he stays by you at a nice steady pace, after he has settled into his harness.  His hearing is excellent and you only need to softly call him in the back yard and he comes to you immediately.  His favourite toy is a big soft bone that he likes to play tug of war with, but he never lets you get it.  This guy has awesome holding and pulling strength!  Leo luvs the beach and will bound through the waves with energy that surprises you! He is an awesome swimmer and moves beautifully through the water.

 

Leo is on an excellent diet to help him lose weight.  He now weighs 37kg. He came into our care at 42kg and needs to lose another couple of kilos!  His new furever family will know the value of terrific nutrition and good quality food and will not have a problem in making sure that Leo has all the supplements and Omega oils that he needs in order to maintain his top-quality diet, and to continue his weight loss.

Leo is currently on Thyroxine medication which will be discussed with his potential family.  We have also just finished a month round of Cartrophen injections to help him!

 

Leo can follow you from room to room like a big golden shadow, he doesn’t want anything but to be near where you are;  whether watching tv, in the office, or having a cuppa out the back – he will never be far from your side.

 

Leo’s recall abilities are excellent and in any social situation he continually comes back to you to ‘check in’ if it is Ok for him to carry on having fun!

 

Three words for Leo’s new home; stability, love and calm.

 

Leo’s ideal home is one without a lot of surprises, thinking loud bangs, lots of sudden movements or continual coming and going.  He is a settled soul, and all the stuff mentioned is just too much for him.  He does not like to be alone all the time, and Leo is storm phobic.  You will be glad you came home from wherever when his gorgeous fluffy head is bobbing around for its pats, he is a wonderful greeter and  has lots of love to give. This proud and beautiful being will bring lots of joy to your life.  .Whilst he has been in our care his foster carers have observed a few behaviour changes, such as his constant need for attention and also his over excited reactions to other dogs. Consequently  we will be placing him with a family who have no other dogs or small pets. It would be extremely unfair to Leo to have to share his trust or time with anyone else. He is a hooman focused dog and really is a one-off guy, in every way!

 

WHAT LEO NEEDS: 

 

Leo needs a family that are home, he would not cope with a family working full time as he needs his hooman touch, and close contact are his lifeline.  We will be looking favourably for a family that will walk and exercise Leo each day and involve him in all aspects of family life.  Leo requires lots of reassurance, so a calm home is what we are seeking.  We are not looking at placing Leo in a family with children, only adults.  Leo’s amazing adopted family will have no problem with him sleeping inside and following them around for cuddles, and they will fully understand the value of nutritional food and supplements for a doggie .  A doggie door or open back door policy is definitely an advantage for Leo to come and go.  As mentioned above, Leo will need a home where he is the only dog, so the love, encouragement and respect he is now getting can continue to support him as he moves forward into his new life, and his hoomans need to be around a lot for reassurance.  

Leo has now been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartwormed & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, & his adoption fee is $650.  Leo is available for adoption in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas (this information is listed on our website under “Our Adoption Process”.  Please do not ask us to consider your application if you live outside of these areas, as we are unable to assist, we simply do not have the resources)  Thank You 😊

SMART AND STUNNING BOWIE!

 

Beautiful Bowie is a 14-month-old puppy who is just a stunner!

 

Bowie is described by his foster family as a sweet boy with a gentle nature. Having grown up with his litter sibling, Bowie will require further training and patience from his furever family so he can be the bestest doggie!

 

Bowie is a social dog, and gets along well with his foster fur siblings. He is funny, determined, loving and clever!  He is a smart boy, who LOVES his toys (sometimes a little too much!), but is quickly learning that sharing is more fun than not.  Bowie's furever family will need to continue to help him learn this, and any potential fur siblings would be best suited as an older and well-rounded dog, to help continue to guide Bowie to blossom into his best beautiful self. 

 

Bowie loves to swim, he can swim quite far out in the still water and loves to have a swimming race with you, out to a ball or a stick.   Bowie is walking well with his gentle leader and luvs to get out and about. 

 

Bowie will be eager to help you around the house - and his favourite chore is definitely gardening. He will be more than happy to help you collect sticks, and will even gift you some of the rock treasures he finds around the backyard.  Bowie can be a barker, if it doesn’t suit him, he will let you know.  Bowie doesn’t like to be left outside and can find it hard to relax, he will follow you around.  He is okay with thunder and fireworks but will move away when vacuuming.

 

Bowie needs to be homed with another doggie of similar size and energy level but a little more mature. Bowie would become bored without the companionship and potentially entertain himself in a negative capacity.  Bowie luvs using his doggie door and knows that he can come and go, and feel secure.

 

This guy loves a pat and to be cuddled, he likes a brush, and will leave when he has had enough. He will put his head on you, when he wants attention.

 

Bowie likes to sleep in the same room as someone, either on the bed or near the bed when it is hot.

 

WHAT BOWIE NEEDS: 

Bowie requires a family with another dog with a similar in nature to himself.  He would love a good size back yard.  Secure high fencing a requirement for all our Goldies.  We will be looking favourably for a family that will walk and exercise Bowie each day and involve him in all aspects of family life.  Bowie is a young dog and is still learning to become a big boy!  Bowie needs to be with his hoomans.  Bowie’s amazing adopted family will have no problem with him sleeping inside and following them.  A doggie door would be great so Bowie and his brother/sister could come and go.  He would luv for his family to be home a lot or even work from home.  We are not looking at rehoming Bowie with young children under 12.  Not road tested with cats so we would say no to felines.

 

Bowie has now been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heart wormed & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, & his adoption fee is $1,000.  Bowie currently weighs 29kg which is an ideal weight for him.  Bowie is available for adoption in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas (this information is listed on our website under “Our Adoption Process”).  We appreciate you not asking us to consider your application if you live outside of these areas, as we are unable to assist due to our limited resources.  Thank You 😊

ZEST FOR LIFE ZOE !!

 

Zoe is a 15 month old stunning white Golden Retriever who is looking to find her furever family, one that will show patience and compassion while she blossoms into a young lady!

 

Zoe is a lovely girl who loves the company of her foster brother and sister.  She sleeps inside at night and will often jump on the bed to share with you.  Being a youngster, she is full of beans first thing in the morning and will show boundless energy before her morning walk.  She does walk better on harness and lead, and is walking well with other Goldies. Zoe knows her commands, sit, wait, drop etc and is a smart girl and will look to you for direction.

 

Zoe is a fast eater and she has her very own monogrammed go slow bowl!  It has certainly made a difference at meal times, in the morning and evening.  Zoe loves her healthy treats, which are a great training tool for her.  Zoe is also on Omega Oil.

 

Zoe sleeps inside and will spend as much time with her foster hoomans as possible.  She feels safe and secure being around her people.

 

Zoe is getting used to car travel and will now get in the back seat and happily have her seat restraint applied to her harness.

 

Zoe loves her toys, but hasn’t shown that she is completely destructive in this regard.  She can get a little over excited at play time and is learning that not all doggies like bitey face fun.  She is still learning how to engage in positive play, and can sometimes get a little over-excited and needs time to calm down. She is one very smart girl, and with a little more help and guidance from her new family, will blossom into the perfect playmate for her new fur brother or sister. 

 

Whilst not constant, Zoe can be adept at a little digging, so if you are precious about your gardens, Zoe isn't the girl for you!!

 

WHAT ZOE NEEDS: 

Zoe did come into care with mild anxiety but seems to have overcome that now with stability and security in her life.  Zoe does require an active family with another active dog, similar in nature, to herself.  She would love a good size back yard.  Secure high fencing is required for all our Goldies.  We will be looking favourably for a family unit that will walk and exercise Zoe each day and involve her in all aspects of family life.  Zoe is still a youngster and requires positive training in a loving home.

 

Zoe’s amazing adopted family will have no problem with her sleeping inside and following them around for cuddles, and they will fully understand the value of nutritional food and supplements for a doggie.  Zoe would luv her family to be home a lot or even work from home, and a doggie door is definitely an advantage. Zoe doesn't do well left alone and left outside.  We are not looking at rehoming Zoe with young children under 12.  Zoe has been road tested with a feline in foster care, but has shown a little fixation, so we will be adopted her to a home without a feline.

Zoe has now been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heart wormed & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated, & her adoption fee is $1,000.  Zoe currently weighs 28.3kg and our Vet advises this is an excellent weight for her.  Zoe is available for adoption in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast & Hervey Bay only.  Please note we do not adopt interstate or overseas (this information is listed on our website under “Our Adoption Process”).  We appreciate you not asking us to consider your application if you live outside of these areas, as we are unable to assist due to our limited resources.  This information is also provided on our website under “FAQ”.  Thank You 😊
