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.

Tilly is very laid back, happy to sleep all day and is a lap dog. She loves for you to be home and will follow you around all day just to be in your presence. She is a clever girl who can do a number of tricks that her previous family taught her to do. Tilly knows how to sit, drop, jump and roll (with a bit of help) and is a very enthusiastic student when liver treats are at hand.

Now, on to Tilly’s anxiety. Her anxiety and reactive behaviour is at its worst when out of the house for a walk where she is unexpectedly met by new people and strange dogs. Tilly is wary around new people or strangers and introduction needs to be done in a way she feels safe but once she is comfortable with new people she is truly a bundle of joy. Tilly’s new humans will be experienced dog people and will be dedicate to working with Tilly moving forward. Just like us humans, exercise is fantastic for anxiety ~ this is also another great way to help to bring Tilly’s anxiety levels down as when she jogs with her current person she ignores everything else around her.

Tilly is a very reluctant surrender but she is just in the wrong situation for her to relax and progress.

An ideal location for Tilly will be somewhere in a quiet area and away from too many people and dogs. Love and dedication to Tilly’s training, along with the provision of a safe environment will see her thrive and become the wonderful dog she is destined to be. No cats for Tilly please.

Thank you to Lyndsay of Paw Focus Photography for the fantastic photos of Tilly.
