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.

Dash has come out of his shell quite a lot over the last few weeks! Dash is a happy, loving little dog, who wags his tail when given belly scratches. He will pester you for cuddles anytime you sit on a surface within reach and loves to stare up at your adoringly. In saying that Dash is also independent and spends a good amount of time napping in various places. He takes himself off to bed at about eight o clock. He loves to run and has grown to love his outdoor walks in nature. He is very loyal and is very happy to play with his people. Dash is extremely polite when greeting other dogs. He is very intelligent and has learned to “sit” and roll his ball in only two days of training. He is also learning to play! Dash is very intelligent and obedient.

Dash walks well on a lead and will walk behind you loyally. Dash is very curious and will stop to observe some dogs. If he greets them he will give a polite sniff before moving on. Dash has mastered house training.  He now lets us know when he needs to go outside to do his business and has become very accustomed to routine! Dash doesn’t like beeping sounds such as the microwave and won’t go outside by himself. We think because he has a fear of abandonment.

Dash will make a great companion for a low stress dog free household. Ideally a mature couple who is looking for a loyal and loving companion. He wouldn’t cope with being left alone for too long.

Dash is a happy, trusting little dog and will fill your life with cuddles, laughs and an abundance of love. What more could you want?
