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.

Meet Bella a beautiful 6-year-old Labrador cross.  She’s a bit overweight at present but just means more of her to love. She is laid back, always happy for her exercise and equally as happy snuggling up on the couch with you. She has good endurance and enjoys long walks. She loves being in the car and enjoys the breeze in her hair! She LOVES a good cuddle.

She is obedient and sits and waits for permission before going into a room. She is not destructive, doesn’t bark very often and is described as a very obedient and loving girl

Bella enjoys being at home around her family and is well behaved. She is friendly but because she is protective, she will bark at anyone coming to visit unless told that ‘it’s okay’.  She is fine to be left on her own at home and she will not be a nuisance.

However….Bella is fearful of other dogs and is reactive if they come too close, however, offering her some treats helps. She is being supported by a dog trainer to overcome this fear but still needs a firm hand on the leash. She is getting there and making progress. Good work Bella!

Her new home should have someone who is willing to be at home with her when she first arrives to help settle her in as she may be initially anxious. The offer of treats helps to settle her. Bella seems fine in the company of the right cat.

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.
