NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Max and Abbey Whisteldown are beautiful friends looking for a new family to share their world with. Max is an old soul, a gentle and relaxed boy. He loves some attention, a little belly rub and snuggle but he isn’t a needy dog and is also quite content in his own space. He doesn’t play much but loves a walk and travels well in the car.

Max gets along well with Abbey, but isn’t too keen on other dogs. He walks well on lead, although if he sees another dog he will whine and bark. We are currently working on this. He is usually obedient and will sit and come when called. This clever boy likes to shake paws with you and he begs, especially if you have some treats handy. It took Max a little time to adjust to living with his foster carer, but he is now very comfortable and has made himself right at home. Max doesn’t like loud noises. If somebody accidentally drops something or the vacuum is turned on he gets startled and runs away.

Abbey is a gentle and lovable girl. She is happy, loves her people and loves to share doggie kisses. If she sees a new person she will wag her tail in anticipation of some pats or a good belly rub. Abbey loves water, the fish pond or her little pool (supervised of course). She walks beautifully on lead, but is a bit reactive when it comes to other dogs. Abbey doesn’t really like other dogs and seems to have a dislike for little white fluffy dogs. Abby isn’t always obedient. If there are treats this certainly helps but most of the time she is happy to shake hands rather than sit or stay. Both dogs are house trained. Currently they are untested with cats.

All Abbey and Max want is to find a home where they can continue life’s journey together, where they have human company for most of the day and they are the only pets. More importantly their hearts are full of love that they just want to share with you.

Does this adorable duo look like the perfect addition to your family?

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed, and flea treated. All necessary vetwork such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment are also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
