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.

This bonded pair are looking for place to live out their senior years together. Rocket and Teacup enjoy the simple things in life, comfy beds,basking in the sun and of course pats and cuddles.

Rocket is the quieter one of these two, enjoying short walks or a good exploration of a new garden or area. She loves to stick close by to Teacup but also enjoys lots of naps in a nice comfy bed.

Rocket has lost some weight which has given her a new spark for life and allowed her to enjoy some longer walks. Teacup is a very friendly girl who loves to run around a garden and chase birds. She also is a people person and would love to be by your hip (or ankle) all day.

Both dogs get very excited and love their walks. Teacup will bark and seem reactive when she sees another dog but when she is in a home where she trusts and is loved this may be explored further. However, Teacup is definitely NOT a friend to cats.

They are now house trained although if they see a pee pad the temptation is there.  They sleep the night through in their crate.

These two will be best suited to a home where the two can have a back yard, and people are home often, so an older family or couple will do them best.  They would not be suited to a family with young children.  The pair are wary of these creatures.

Thank you to Christopher of Christopher Fotobooks for the fantastic photos of Rocket and Teacup.

Medical Notes:

Teacup is a fragile girl and will lose weight quickly.   She will stop eating sometimes for no apparent reason and will need to be tempted by new foods

About once a month she seems to get an upset stomach.  We are exploring this further.

Rocket is a healthy girl who loves her food and if she has the chance will also eat Teacup’s meal.

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.
