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 Picolo, a young boy who sadly finds himself in search of a new forever home. As he is new into our care, we are still getting to know him. Picolo has generally spent a lot of time on his own at home, but clearly adores his humans and feels safest when around them.

Picolo is unsure of new people, and will let them know when he is ready to engage or when he needs his own space. He would benefit from further training to get used to other people. He is not comfortable around children.

Picolo enjoys going on walks and is good around other dogs that respect his space.

Picolo’s ideal forever home would be adult only and where his humans are around more often than not. A home where his humans will help him with his socialisation training. He would enjoy another calm dog mate who would give him space, but no cats. If you have the ideal home for Picolo, please fill in the application form.

No cats for Picolo.

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.
