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.

Axel and Ruby are a bonded pair who have been well-loved their entire lives. Reluctantly due to a change in their beloved carers’ circumstances, they find themselves in search of a new forever home.

Understandably, coming from a safe and caring home, they had to adapt to their new foster home, but during the short time they have spent with their foster family, they have come along in leaps and bounds.

Being older dogs, they had some mobility issues, but their improved daily exercise routine, and Ruby’s arthritis injections have made a huge difference allowing them to move around with the best of them.

Being such a bonded pair, they prefer the company of each other, rather than that of other dogs or animals. Whilst Axel seems a little more curious of other dogs, Ruby prefers to keep her distance. This does not stop them enjoying getting out and about on their daily walk, they love the fresh air and simply prefer to keep to themselves and not cause trouble. Speaking of which, their loose lead walking is coming along nicely.

Humans, on the other hand, they are definitely realising there is much enjoyment to be had from their two legged friends. A good belly rub and some human attention won’t go a miss with these two. They are even learning some human language and can sit and stay pretty well.

The pair are happy to be on their own for periods of the day, as long as they have each other for company. But obviously their enjoyment of human contact and attention, would suggest they would also love a home where their humans are around more often than not.

This beautiful pair currently appear to be better suited staying together. If your family has some extra room and love to give these sweeties, please fill out the application form below.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is 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.
