Norton was a shy boy who found a weimaraner loving home to build his confidence.

Muffin was a shy girl, especially when meeting new people. When she met her new owner for the first time, she warmed up instantly and sat on her lap - most unlike her! Muffin certainly picked her new mum.

Ciccio is another young lad that managed to find a home with his foster family. He's a super-energetic young man who has found a home to keep his mind and body active.


Poor Dolce came to us with a range of health problems. She found a loving and sedate home for her retirement with a huge backyard to explore.

Titan is certainly going to be kept busy in his new home, playing with the other dogs and the four cats!


Poor Tiggy came to us in poor condition, and took us some time to fix his medical and psychological problems. He found an understanding home that remarks, "I think he's better behaved than my existing dog." Job well done!

Casca (now Casper)

This fantastic puppy was so adaptable and trainable, and very nearly became a foster-failure himself. However, he did get adopted.


Ziggy is a ball of muscle! He found a home where he can be the soul companion of a bloke - I think what Ziggy was made to do!

Sandy (now Boo)

Sandy was advertised as a 'personal trainer', and found herself a home that can keep her little body busy! She gets to go for runs on a daily basis with her new mum. Great result for Sandy.
