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: Floyd will be an only dog in his new home.

Floyd is a funny, friendly wee guy who loves the company of his humans. He loves affection from his foster family and returns the love with kisses and adoration.  He will thrive with an adopter who is up for the challenge in building his confidence and helping him settle by providing consistent boundaries and predictable routine

Floyd does have a tendency to react to other dogs when out on his lead, and this does need work. He is a clever boy, sometimes a little too much so, who thrives off mental stimulation and expending his energy. He can sit and give you his paw for a treat.

Floyd will fetch and bring his ball back to you as long as you keep throwing it for him.  However, this will need to be carefully monitored by his family to prevent him from getting too fixated or injured because of his enthusiasm.

He’s also happy to play by himself, creating amusement for his foster family.

Yes. Floyd has a fault, he is a resource guarder and will be best as an only dog although he has lived with other dogs before.  Floyd ticks all the boxes – house trained, uses a doggie door, crate trained, and travels well in the car.

His ideal home would be one with teenage children or adults.  His forever family will be keen to take him on regular walks and help him get the exercise he needs as well as keeping up his training. In return Floyd will give you all the love in the world, a bucketful of laughs, and show you how he can become the best version of himself.

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.
