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 Stevie Elphinstone, a special dog with a heart as big as his paws! 🐾 Despite being blind and deaf, Stevie is a friendly, fearless explorer who approaches life with a wagging tail and a curious nose.

Stevie’s charming personality shines through in his love for cuddles and his joy in discovering new places. He’s quite vocal, using his unique voice to communicate when he needs to go outside, feels disoriented, or simply craves some reassurance. Stevie thrives on human touch and is happiest when he can feel someone nearby, enjoying every pat and cuddle he receives.

In his previous home, Stevie may have faced some challenges, but his resilient spirit shines through. He’s quickly adapting to his new surroundings and has already picked up on the location of his favorite spots, like his cozy dog bed and the inviting family room couch.

Stevie is currently living harmoniously with two beagles, showing that he’s not only friendly but also adaptable to different canine companions. While he hasn’t ventured on many walks yet, he seems to handle the leash well, taking his time to sniff and explore his surroundings.

This sweet old soul is a true gem, and he’s looking for a loving family who can provide him with the care, patience, and understanding he deserves. Stevie may need some time to adjust and learn new routines, but with your guidance and love, he’ll be a loyal and loving companion for life.

If you’re ready to open your heart and home to a remarkable dog, Stevie Elphinstone is waiting to meet you!
