Breeds, ages & names ...
we do our best!

We rarely have a reliable history of the animals
that come to us.

The suggested breeds & ages are stated in good faith and based on our experience over 25 years.

Similarly, most dogs arrive without a name tag so
they're given temporary names. Feel free to choose
a new name as your dog
will adapt very quickly!

Reggie
American Bulldog •  Male  •  7 months old @ 6 July (DOB=06/12/13)
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

From my foster home: Reggie is a very loving family-orientated dog. He's fully house-trained with great manners, great on walks; very social and relaxed. He's a very quick learner. He loves people, other dogs and isn't boisterous or aggressive in any way. He loves to please and just wants to be part of your family life! He also loves the beach and his baths. Reggie will suit a home with older children and will need to live with another playful dog or someone who's home a lot as he's used to having company all the time. If you're interested in adopting Reggie, please ring (don't text) Margie on 0488 502 121, 9am to 5pm daily.

Bonnie
Bull Arab X •  Female  •  ~18 months old

Rosie
Mastiff   •  Female  •  ~6 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Elsa
German Shepherd X  • Female • 6 to 7 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Elsa is a loving and affectionate dog who adores company and attention! She would easily fit into a home with a single person, couple or family with older children. She doesn’t mind meeting other dogs on walks but would probably suit being an only dog ... and she isn't fond of cats. At the moment she's a bit strong on the lead but not too bad. She just needs someone to teach her what's expected. If you'd like a dog who adores you, loves hanging out with you, is toilet trained and ready and eager to learn — then Elsa may just be the one for you!

Snowy
Husky X  •   Male   •  ~2 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Snowy can be a bit shy at first but once he's comfortable he's a happy and loving soul! He'll need a home with someone who understands dogs well and can bring out his true personality. He's not a dog to be left alone for long periods. If you're interested in Snowy please call Margie on 0488 502 121 during office hours (9am - 5pm). Please don't text!

Brutus
Mastiff X   • Male  •   ~3.5 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

(Note from Brutus: Please don't jump to conclusions about me based on my name. When you meet me you'll discover that the name I arrived with doesn't necessarily suit me & you can certainly rename me :)

He's big, brindle and beautiful! Brutus is full of life and energy and we could see him perhaps living with an energetic playful female who's reasonably mature (not a puppy). He tries very hard to do what’s asked of him and is always pleased with himself when he’s rewarded! He'd make a great companion for someone with dog experience who could further his training and provide him with guidance.

Bushy
Husky X  •  Female  •  ~2 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Love Huskies? Bushy is the typical bundle of joyful Husky energy. She is a cross breed but her traits are very husky-like. She has a lovely nature and would most likely be happy with a male canine companion. If you have Husky or similar breed experience and understand their needs, particularly for exercise and mental stimulation - Bushy may just be the perfect girl for you!

Bill
Bull Terrier X  •   Male  •  ~12 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Bill is quite a home body and is an affectionate, dear old dog. He has been difficult to find a home for as he requires human company during the day and he's not overly friendly to other dogs as his vision is a bit limited and he doesn’t hear very well and becomes confused when other canines come up to him. From time to time he's a little incontinent and this problem means that he can't live in a house with a lot of carpet. Bill has a great deal of love to give and will become the perfect companion for a compassionate dog lover who will find providing Bill with such love and care at the end of his life a very rewarding experience. For further information ring us on 0418 389 810 or 0488 502 121 during business hours, 9am to 5pm (please don't text). « Roll mouse over photo for more


Harry
Foxhound X Beagle  •  Male  •  ~6 years old

Harry is a happy fellow who loves human company. He's looking for an adult home with someone who can be a strong pack leader and give him the security he needs as he occasionally becomes a bit apprehensive. He is excellent with other dogs in the park but would prefer to have you all to himself at home. Harry will become a terrific companion! If you're interested in adopting him, ring us on 0488 502 121 or 0418 389 810 during business hours (9am to 5pm). Please don't text.

Elmo
Collie X Labrador  •   Male   •  ~8 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Elmo was surrendered to SADS because his past owner, an elderly gentleman, was no longer able to look after him. His owner adored him — and his vets were very fond of him too! Elmo loves people and would make a wonderful companion. He's quite an active dog who has a tremendous way of entertaining himself (and us!) with his unique ball-playing antics (see the video below). Elmo is good in the house and housetrained. The main reason we still have him is that he's had a mast cell tumour removed in the past and although the chances are very much in favour of it not recurring, people are understandably concerned about entering into an adoption — even in the knowledge that SADS will provide treatment should it be required in the future. Elmo definitely doesn't like cats and has an edge with other dogs, but he'd make a very special companion for someone seeking a canine soulmate. SADS has a full social and veterinary history of Elmo. If you can offer Elmo a permanent home, please ring us on (03) 9824 7928.

Tess
American Bulldog X  •  Female  • ~3 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Tess has a beautiful personality but at the moment is quite apprehensive of the outside world. She enjoys the company of other dogs and will need to live with a kind and confident canine friend. Once Tess has learnt that the world is full of fun she'll be a truly loving companion!

Phoebe
Bull Arab X •  Female  •  ~4 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Phoebe is sometimes a little tentative when meeting new people and being placed in new situations but once she gets to know you she’s a lovely friendly dog who will become a dedicated companion. The ideal home for Phoebe would be on some acreage where she doesn’t have to leave the property to exercise and be exposed to changing situations. She'll be more than happy enjoying herself wandering around her home and relaxing. She will happily live with a male canine and enjoys playing

Lucky
Lab X  •  Male  •  ~18 months old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Lucky has a terrific personality and loves to be involved in everything! At the moment he's extremely energetic and boisterous and he'll possibly need an environment with another dog his size to keep him occupied. With all his exuberance, he's not your typical family Labrador and will need a home with a strong human pack leader who has the experience to guide him through his education.

Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Tess
Staffy X  •  Female  •  ~4 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Tess’s greatest joy in life is to be with people and have them play games with her! Because of her attachment to her human companions she'll need a home where someone is around a lot of the time. She has not had a lot of exposure to other dogs at this stage so will need ongoing training. She'll need to live as an only dog.

Sebastian
Pointer X  •  Male   •  ~3.5 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Sebastian is a big strong dog who needs some guidance and training. He's a little insecure at times and needs a human companion to guide him through life while he builds his confidence. He would probably be happy to live with a female dog and is generally sociable with all canines he meets in the park or while out on a walk. Sebastian tries very hard to please and is looking for the right person to help him understand what's expected of him.
