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.

These two worried boys were surrendered to a pound when their person could no longer keep them. Barney is very affectionate and loves to sit on his person’s knee while Fred is more than happy being nearby on the couch. They both love pats and they will jump up on your legs for a head scratch and enjoy being told they are good boys. They are very sociable with new people and love  attention.  They would benefit from someone around quite a bit.

The boys scuffle occasionally over attention but if you are aware of that it will be no issue.

We cannot yet say they are completely housetrained although they do go outside generally.  Like many of the dogs we get they seem a little worried to go outside on their own, perhaps concerned they will be locked out. The boys together aren’t great with other dogs and their current carer has been walking them separately which has worked well and they are improving.  They don’t seem fussed with one being left behind. Both dogs love to travel in the car and sit well with clip ons to their harnesses.

We would like to keep these boys together as they have lost the only home they have known.  Can you help Barney and Fred?  They will give you a lot of love in return.

Source Number: RE120211

Medical Notes:  Fred is a healthy boy and Barney has some health issues to which we are attending.

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.
