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.

Judd is a delightful companion who thrives on human interaction and affection. He exudes love and warmth, always seeking cuddles and physical closeness with his human. Despite his initial excitement, he possesses a calm demeanor and enjoys lounging on the bean bag for hours, revelling in the comfort of home.

Judd’s enthusiasm for people sometimes manifests in jumping and holding on, though he responds well to training commands like sit and stay. He eagerly anticipates his evening walks, where he exhibits some excitement and tends to pull on the lead. However, efforts are underway to help him walk at a slower pace.
He has limited interest in play and food, Judd’s primary focus remains on human companionship. He displays minimal food drive and doesn’t exhibit behaviours like drooling or begging for treats. Instead, he craves affection and attention from those around him.

Judd demonstrates adaptability in various situations. While he prefers indoor company, he’s content to sleep and stay outside, showing no signs of anxiety or destructive behaviour when left alone. Initially he will try to get his way with puppy dog eyes but will quickly adjust to the established routine.

He generally gets along well with canine companions, though some exuberance may be observed during initial encounters.

Judd is cooperative during grooming sessions, except for his aversion to the blow dryer. He handles visits to the dog wash with ease, demonstrating good behaviour throughout the process.

Judd is a lovable and affectionate companion who thrives on human connection. With patience and positive reinforcement, he continues to adjust and flourish in his foster home, enriching the lives of those around him with his endearing personality.

Health: Judd is currently in the country and we are trying to get him to Melbourne to a foster/foster with a view so we can assess his gait. Possibly surgery on his front leg may be required.

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.
