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 Nero Grimaldi a handsome and loving boy. Nero is an active boy who likes the fast lane with an active and energetic walk of around 25-30 mins a day. He likes to walk fast so is head down to get to his destination and at times may bark and run towards other dogs.
It is best to keep Nero away from crowds and dog parks as he has been previously mistreated. He is good with visitors to the home but may initially bark at them until told it is okay.
Nero does not have issues with chewing or barking but may bark at cats, possums or other dogs if passing by. Nero has had 15 sessions with a trainer working on his obedience. He has never jumped a fence but it is a good idea to have high fencing to ensure his safety in the case he is ever tempted. He loves a drive in the car with the wind blowing through his fur!
His new home will be with teenagers and/adults due to his size. Nero would love to share his family with his friend Abby, but will also be fine to be adopted on his own.

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.
