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.

Zephyr is an absolutely gorgeous dog who will be rehomed as an only dog. And no cats either please. As some of you would know he has been at death’s door and returned.

Zephyr is a delight to have around the house and is fine when left home alone. He is not destructive or naughty and will just sleep on his bed while you are out. He is very intelligent, gentle and loving and loves to bury his head into you for a snuggle. He loves to lie around close to you during the day but stays in his bed all night.

Zephyr has a great personality and a very expressive face. He has the capacity to let you know what he wants and communicates by sitting in front of you with a quizzical face, making talking sounds. He would flourish in a gentle household where he can have lots of company and affection. He does have some mild separation anxiety if you leave him alone outside his normal surroundings, will bond intensely, and you will need to want a dog who will make you his whole world.

Zephyr is an absolute sweetheart and a delightful companion. Whoever adopts this wonderful boy will be lucky indeed. They themselves will be special people for responding to this boy’s extra needs. He is generally fine with other dogs but would rather not share you.

We would prefer to rehome him in the Melbourne area.

He has diabetes from his Cushings which was caused by an adrenal tumour. The adrenal tumour has been surgically removed, so he no longer has Cushings but he will have diabetes for the remainder of his life.

His new family will understand that his dietary intake will need to be strictly controlled and he will need daily injections. The tumour removed by the specialist surgeon was malignant and there is always the possibility that it may have already spread particles. We have him booked in for an ultrasound at the end of November.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed, flea treated and if over 12 months heartworm tested.
