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.

Please note: Banjo has developed a beautiful bond with Mary Dubois and they would love to be rehomed together.

Banjo is a friendly older gentleman who loves a cuddle. Don’t let his age fool you though, when he gets excited he is just like a puppy and bounces around on his back legs to make sure you know just how happy he is.

His favourite thing to do is go on walks and he is keen to say hello to everyone he meets so some further training will be needed to contain his enthusiasm. Short walks and some backyard play are an appropriate amount of exercise for Banjo.

When at home he loves to hang out with his human and cuddle but he would also love a calm, sweet natured canine friend to keep him company if his human isn’t around. Banjo is house trained but he will need to be taken outside during the night to go to the toilet. He currently sleeps on his own bed in his foster carer’s bedroom.

Banjo does have some anxiety issues. He stuns easily and is not a fan of the car or the vet. He would need someone who is willing to be patient with him and reassure him that these things aren’t quite as scary as he thinks.

The perfect home for Banjo would be with humans who are home most of the time and have time to give Banjo lots of love and cuddles. A home where there is already an older dog would be a bonus.

Medical Notes: Poor Banjo will be having all his teeth out soon as they are in such bad condition.

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.
