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.

Beautifully bonded pair Rusty and Gemma appear to have only recently experienced the life of soft beds, keeping cosy inside and treat time. Their laid back personalities have helped them to adjust well to indoor home life with their foster family but understandably given they have spent their first 16 years of their lives outside their house training does need patience and attention.

Rusty is everyone’s friend, he loves to greet humans and dogs like he’s been pals with them for years. He’s an easy going and affectionate lad who’s up for treats anytime and a walk at a good pace. Just as any gentleman should though, he is also happy to go for a stroll at a slower pace which is more suited to his lady companion Gemma.

Gemma is a stoic little lady. Despite her sight and hearing not being as finely tuned as it once was she’s very independent and not fussed by humans and animals. An easy to please lass who simply wants to wander around a safe and secure environment looking for the next place to enjoy an afternoon snooze.

Good travelers, dog friendly and learning quickly to be respectful of kitty friends (looking at you Rusty), it’s clear that when this sweet couple are together everything in the world is right. Gemma loves looking to Rusty for reassurance and has learnt that walkies together are her new favourite past time. Rusty likes to share food with Gemma so some dinner supervision is recommend to ensure this little lady gets her fair share.

This sweet bonded pair are looking for a quiet and warm place to rest their heads for their final years with some patient and loving humans who will continue to nurture their new life in the warmth of a caring home. There’s no doubt that time, patience and treats will see these two old dogs learn some new house training tricks as they become more familiar with their surroundings.

If you feel that Rusty and Gemma might be the loving duo you need in your life please contact us or fill out the adoption form.

Thank you to Christopher of Christopher Fotobooks for the fantastic photos of Rusty and Gemma.
