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 Sarge! A beautiful boy who is the definition of go big or go home…A big heart, big emotions and he would love a big space in your sofa, bed and life!

Sarge loves company – people, dogs, cats. He is not suitable to be an apartment dog as he loves his zoomie time in the backyard.

Big ticks:

  • Everyone he meets tells him he is beautiful, but we are trying very hard not to let his ego get too big.
  • He is very well house trained and will let you know he wants to go out by giving a big bark. No accidents for this big guy!
  • Sarge has a big heart and a big personality. He also loves other dogs, and is working on how to greet them nicely, as his size and enthusiasm can be overwhelming. He would suit living with another medium to large dog who can help him learn how to interact respectfully. He also loves cats, and wants to play with them, so any house cats should be dog savvy.
  • He loves to play, and as a big puppy will be best suited to teenagers or adult only household.
  • He has a big capacity to learn, and has in the last few weeks mastered (or almost mastered) sit, stay, come, drop, up, down, wait and cross.

Not so big things:

  • The amount of time he can be left on his own – Sarge dearly loves to be with his people and gets very stressed left on his own. He will be best suited to a home where he will have company almost all of the time. It has been difficult to work on this during lockdown.
  • His boredom threshold – Sarge is smart and would benefit from continued training, exercise and mental stimulation; otherwise he gets bored and likes to chew items of clothing to amuse himself…
  • There are rumours he can scale big fences when left on his own but he hasn’t shown any signs of that at his current foster home.

If Sarge sounds like he can fill the big hole in your life please send through an application.

Thank you to Heather of Brown Dog Studio for the fantastic photos of Sarge.
