Disco is a 3 year old Greyhound who has achieved his collar allowing him to be muzzle free when in public. Disco can be a little shy initially and will need a home where he's not overwhelmed and given time to settle in, so we think he'd suit a home without children and with hoomans who are savvy with the greyhound breed. No cats or other small  animals for this boy please. He's a very sweet and affectionate dog with quite a cheeky personality.
Disco is available by Expression of Interest so please use the link below to complete the application (make sure you choose his name from the drop down list) giving us details about your family situation and the life you can offer him. If your application is successful, a staff member from our Launceston Home will call you to set up an appointment.

***UPDATE: We have enough applications for Skampy and have closed now thanks*** 

This little guy is Skampy, a 2 year old Chihuahua x who weighs about 3.5 kg. Skampy has a beautiful quiet nature and has previously had very limited exposure to the outside world as he lived with an older lady who was unable to get out much.  We are looking for a home for Skampy without children, where someone is mostly at home with him, and preferably where his new hoomans have had previous experience with the breed. A gorgeous little fellow, Skampy is looking for love. 
He is available by Expression of Interest from our Burnie Home so if you're interested in him, please use the link below to complete the form (choose his name from the drop down list). Give us plenty of detail about yourself and the life you can provide for this little man, and if your application is successful a staff member will call you to set up an appointment to meet him.
***UPDATE: we have enough applications for Baggie and have closed now thanks.***

With his little legs and his long body Baggie is the cutest boy. He weighs 12 kg and is only 8 months old. We're told he's a Beagle / Chihuahua mix, but let's just say he's a small mixed breed until you've done your DNA testing. Baggie is a shy little fellow on first introductions, but soon comes out of his shell. He is housetrained, walks well on a lead and previously lived with other dogs, so may enjoy a doggie friend in his new home. He's a very sweet young boy who'll respond really well to some positive training and lots of love and care.
He's available by Expression of Interest from our Burnie Home so please use the link below to complete the form (please choose his name from the drop down list) giving us details about yourself and the life you can provide for Baggie.

***Update : We have enough applications for Jessie now and have closed thanks.***

This beautiful girl is Jessie, an eight month old German Short Haired Pointer. Jessie  weighs 19.5kg and still has a bit of growing to do. 
Jessie is toilet trained, can sit and stay but she's still a pup and is still learning her big girl manners. 

We'd like to see her go to an experienced home that can give her the active life and training she needs, so Jessie is available by Expression of Interest from our Devonport Home.

Update: Expressions of Interest have closed for Misty as we now have enough. 

This pint-sized cutie is Misty, a 5 year old Aus Terrier/Mini Fox Terrier x. (4.5kg)
At only 5 years old she is full of energy and loves to zoom around. In typical small dog fashion Misty loves nothing more than sitting on your lap and will love a home where she is a big part of the family. Although Misty was mainly an outside dog in her previous home, we know that she would love nothing more than cuddling up with her new owners on a couch inside.

Misty is available by Expression of Interest from our Hobart Home so please use the link below to complete the form (please choose her name from the drop down list) giving us details about yourself and the life you can provide for Misty.
If your application is successful a staff member will call you to set up an appointment to meet her.
***UPDATE: we have enough applications for Shadow and have closed now thanks.***

This handsome fella is Shadow, a 6 year old Maremma.

Shadow is a soft spoken boy who loves to follow you around and will lean in for a pat or sit on your feet. In his previous home Shadow was kept mainly as an outside dog and although he lived with another dog, he isn’t overly interested in interacting so wouldn’t cope with a boisterous dog. Shadow enjoys playing in the sprinkler and travels well in the car. 

Shadow has no experience around children, so at this stage we think he will be best suited to a home without young children and with someone who has experience with the breed and their personalities. 

Shadow is available by Expression of Interest from our Hobart Home so please use the link below to complete the form (please choose his name from the drop down list) giving us details about yourself and the life you can provide for Shadow.

***Update: we have enough applications for Zodias and have closed now thanks.***

Introducing Zodias, the very handsome 2 year old Rottweiler. (41.1kg)
Zodias is as laid back as they come when he is at home where he is most comfortable. He can be a little reserved and timid around new people, so we think he will best suit a quiet home where he can settle in at his own pace. 
In his previous home Zodias was house trained and got along well with the other dogs and their cat. Zodias likes clam shells filled with water, sprinklers and the beach, but isn’t a fan of the hose!  He travels well in the car and most importantly loves being around his hoomans. 

Zodias is available by Expression of Interest from our Hobart Home so please use the link below to complete the form (please choose his name from the drop down list) giving us details about yourself and the life you can provide for Zodias.
If your application is successful a staff member is call you to set up an appointment to meet him.
