Dogs at our Burnie Home

The dogs below are waiting for adoption from our Burnie Home. If you’re interested in adopting one of these dogs, please click the link below to make an appointment to visit the Home. Please be aware that dogs are being adopted throughout the day, and while we try and update Facebook and the website as soon as a dog is adopted, we cannot guarantee that any particular dog will still be there when you visit.

We only take visitors by appointment. This helps us to limit the number of people in the adoption area, reducing stress on the dogs. Bookings can only be made on the day and for two days ahead.

Rusty is the perfect name for his handsome fellow, who could give a whole tribe of Weasleys a run for their money on the red hair front.
 
Staff at our Burnie Home say he is “a playful and boisterous big boy with a friendly demeanor”. He’s a Rottweiler-Mastiff x cross who weighs 36.7kg and is coming up on one year old.
 
We are told Rusty knows sit, wait, high five, shakes hands and comes when called, but he is not toilet trained.  He likes to play fetch and enjoys going to the beach or mucking about under the garden sprinkler.
 
Rusty has lived with children of primary and secondary school age. He also lived with a small dog and a cat in the past, although we can’t say for sure how he would do with a cat in his new home.

Bernie’s backstory may be a bit elusive, but one thing is for sure — he's all about playtime and canine camaraderie.

This loveable hound, who came to us as a stray, is searching for a home where he can have furry friends to frolic with, as being surrounded by his doggy pals seems to bring him joy. We think he’s a Hound x about a year old. He weighs 27kg.

He knows how to sit and stay but still has a lot to learn, so he will need someone who is willing to provide him with ongoing obedience training and enrichment. He can be a little nervous when first meeting humans, but once he warms up, you'll get to see his cheeky side and playful pup-like nature.

Bernie has a voice of his own and isn't afraid to use it, and may prefer durable toys that can stand up to his enthusiastic style of play. It will take a bit of patience as he navigates what's acceptable to play with, but with time and understanding, Bernie will learn the ropes ... and the tennis balls ... and the Kongs.

🐾 Loves other dogs

Big ol’ Bruno has some contrasting features – an impressively muscular chest to rival any bodybuilder, and oddly dainty little white toes! 

Actually, Bruno is big but not at all old. He’s a Mastiff x who weighs 37kg and is about one and a half years of age. Since he was a stray, we simply can’t say much about him with regard to training and life experience.

“Bruno is a big, handsome, playful and at times boisterous boy who loves toys and ball games,” staff at our Burnie Home told us. They amusingly described him as “unfortunately very athletic” – Bruno is not always aware of his size and might not be suitable for young children.

Bruno’s personality, however, is generally pretty chilled, so he might suit a home with an experienced owner of larger breeds who can teach him a thing or two about toning things down when he gets too full of the excitement of life.

Lovely Ellie has the kind of smile that makes the world a better place.
 
“Ellie likes attention and is very loving,” we’re told. She’s a friendly, playful 31kg American Bulldog who will be four or five years old on New Year’s Eve. “She is such a sweet, affectionate girl.” See our video of her being the queen of affection in the comments.

“She loves a chat and loves company,” staff also said. “She also loves her treats and food and will let us know with a little happy howl and dancing.” Awww.
 
She’s toilet trained and comes when called but doesn’t appear to have had much in the way of further “formal” training, so an obedience refresher may be called for. She has been accustomed to having someone at home most of the time and hasn’t gotten out a lot, although she has enjoyed trips to the beach.
 
Ellie likes other dogs but can be a little selective about her friends (although her and Moose get on like a house on fire – see our video in the comments), so a pre-adoption introduction will be crucial. Ellie is not suitable for a property with chickens.

Moose’s name suits him – he reminds us of a certain cartoon moose by the name of Bullwinkle.

Moose came to us as a stray, so his past is a moose-tery. We think he’s a Mastiff x who is about 18 months old. He weighs a little under 31kg.

Staff at our Burnie Home tell us Moose is a very affectionate guy who will lean into you for a pat, an endearing trait if ever there was one. He seems very friendly and social with other dogs, likes his toys, and enjoys playing fetch.

He can be a bit strong on the lead and a little jumpy, but he’s still young and some obedience training may help him settle. He loves his food so reward-based training with treats may well be the antler, er, answer.

Moose met a family recently and seemed quite comfortable with children about 10 years of age and up.

Here we introduce you to the adorable Chanel, a tiny fashionista, happy to don a Santa outfit! Chanel, an eight-week-old American Bulldog-Rottweiler-Mastiff cross, may not smell like expensive perfume, but we promise she will smell better because she’s a puppy!

Chanel has been enjoying quality time in foster care alongside the experienced and resilient adult German Shepherd, Neesha. Neesha, a former guest at our Burnie Home, is a Dogs’ Homes favourite and a celebrated foster fail. Despite missing a front leg, Neesha displays incredible patience in guiding and playing with Chanel.

Chanel is already making waves with her playful nature and has mastered the art of sitting nicely. This tiny princess is on a positive socialisation and training path, thanks to her time in foster care. She has been exposed to various people, dogs, and the exciting sights and sounds of the world.

With her sweet demeanour and quick learning abilities, Chanel is a promising young lady in the making. Continued obedience training will ensure she grows up to be a well-adjusted and delightful companion.

What a noble, alert face and mysterious eyes Wrenna has! And in her inset picture, you might just notice a hint of teefs.
 
Wrenna came to us as a stray, so it’s not just her eyes that are mysterious. She weighs a little more than 18kg and we think she’s a Staffy x about eight years old. Staff at our Burnie Home tell us she is “super friendly”.
 
Despite being an older (but not old) dog with some grey around her smooshable chops, Wrenna is an excitable girl who likes to keep busy. She’d do well with a family who will help her keep active into her later years – after all, if you don’t use it, you lose it.
 
We can’t say how Wrenna is with other pets or if she’s had any training. Staffies are generally eager to please their humans and are famous food fans so she could enjoy some treat-based training if needed.
 
🐾 Good looker
🐾 Active girl …
