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.

Breed: Female Terrier cross
Weight: 8.5 kg & 4.5 kg

Abby and Effie are such a cute pair. When their person died they were at
risk of being pts but they are now safe. Abby looks huge next to Effie but
she is only 8.5 kgs and Effie is 4.5 kgs. Effie is an older girl who is a
bit of a stresshead. She is not concerned by other dogs but does love to be
home and can get stressed out walking. It works well when she is carried for
part of the walk while Abby enjoys the time spent exploring. Abby adores
people and her walks but is wary when meeting dogs. She jumps sky high if a
dog barks from behind a fence but that doesn’t deter her. She also plays
ball and is happy to return the ball to you. These girls are so tentative
about some things while loving life in other ways. For example they will get
a fright if the toy they are playing with squeaks. Abby loves cuddles but
doesn’t like to sit on your lap. She is more confident and loves the car.
Little Effie loves nothing more than snuggling into your lap She needs to be
lifted into the car but is very worried and doesn’t relax. Such a little

Both seem fine to be left alone at home together.
Abby LOVES her food and has a tummy that can’t be filled. She eats her meal
quickly and can be a little too snatchy with food treats but we are working
on this. Perhaps not many treats have come their way before. They are both
very quick to charge through an open door and we are working on encouraging
them to stand back.

They will need access to a dog door as they find it hard to hold on all
night without a toilet break. They would most likely be fine with a small
quiet dog to live with although as a bonded pair the third dog may get left

These girls are lots of fun and would love a kind home with a retired couple
around most of the time who can give them cuddles, and show them the joys of
life. A lap or two for Effie. A warm comfy bed for Abby. And four adoring
eyes will be watching you.
