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!

Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

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

Zara
Greyhound X Dalmatian (possibly) •   Female  •  ~10 months old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Zara is a lovely dog with a beautiful personality. When she first arrived at SADS she was very shy and we thought she'd need to live with another dog to give her confidence. She has now found that confidence and has decided she wants her family all to herself and doesn’t want to share with a fellow canine, but she's happy to meet other dogs socially. If you're interested in Zara please call Margie on 0418 389 810 or 0488 502 121 during office hours (9am - 5pm). Please don't text!

Snowy
Husky X  •   Male   •  ~2 years 2 months 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!

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.

Marley
Bull Arab x Pointer  •   Male  •  ~8 months old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

From my foster home: Marley is a big, happy, kind young dog. He has settled down immensely and is now well behaved and very social. He enjoys lots of pats and attention from all the new people he's meeting! He's well behaved inside the house and loves to sit with his head on your lap while you watch TV. He's very playful and loves other dogs so he'd appreciate a home with a large yard and at least one other canine companion to play with. He's a joy to have around!

Fraser
Shar Pei X   •  Male  •  ~2 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Fraser loves the company of people and is now beginning to understand that other dogs are not to be frightened of but can be great fun! If you have the time to further his education you'll be very rewarded with his progress.

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 foster home or a permanent home, please ring us on (03) 9824 7928.

Cairo
Bull Arab X  •   Male  •  ~12 months old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington

Cairo is a large gentle dog and still very puppy-like. Although a bit shy he’s gaining confidence and has just learnt to sit. He'll need someone dedicated to spending a lot of time with him to continue building his confidence and start from the basics with training. He likes other dogs and will benefit from living with a female canine companion. He'll become a terrific companion and very dedicated to his new home.

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.

Cassie
Hound X Bull Arab   •  Female •  ~12 months old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington
Spoken for

Cassie is a big energetic dog who loves to run and play, but excessive exercise isn't good for her hip dysplasia so she'll need your help to learn to become a little calmer! She'll probably never have perfect hips but she's strengthening as she grows up and she's going really well at the moment. She should live as an only dog or with a large calm dog rather than a dog who will encourage her to run around too much. And she shouldn't live with cats as she chases them which isn't great for her hips. Cassie is a lovely sweet young dog who loves other dogs and people and deserves to live a full and happy life! If you can help fulfil her dream, please ring (don't text!) Margie on 0488 502 121 during business hours, 9am-5pm daily. « Roll mouse over photo for more ...

Rocky
Staffy X  •  Male  •  ~3 years old
Animal Business Number 60279 City of Stonnington
ADOPTED!

Rocky is a lovely dog with a happy disposition! He loves to meet and greet people and enjoys the company of other dogs. With his staffy breeding, we think he'll do best in a home where someone is home a bit and rather than leaving him home alone for long hours daily. He would most likely fit in nicely with a female canine companion.
