These pets have been saved, thanks to their rescuer and the kindness of foster carers who are looking after them temporarily, but they are still looking for homes. Please note that descriptions of dogs as either purebred or a cross of particular breeds is given in good faith and is based on assessment of the dog's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age, breed or purebred status of any dogs listed.

There is a two week trial period if you decide you would like to adopt a dog. This is to ensure that everyone is happy with their new family member and also that the dog is happy in their new home.

Dogs and Puppies Rescued by Ronda


Female Wire Haired Jack Russell X

Aged approx. 3 years

Small size

Ladybird is a real Lady by nature! Comfortable around her foster doggy pals and super comfortable when invited up for a human lap chat. She is suited to senior owners who are looking for a toy to small size doggy pal to take everywhere with them although another doggy pal to chill out with when no-one is at home would be good too. Ladybird's coat is lower maintenance  and a good brush through each week will keep her in trim.



Female Kelpie X

Aged 12 months

Medium size

My name is Elle - Elle by name and Elle by looks as she's elegant and striking to look at! Eclipse, (now Elle) was left one night at the Pound tied up to a sign in which she became tangled. Next morning, the Pound Staff took her in when they arrived and she hasn’t looked back since. Elle loves her food and 'vacuums' everything up so is now feeding from a ‘puzzle’ bowl to slow her down to fully digest the nutrients. She is learning from her foster carer’s doggies how to play bow, do zoomies or sit for treats and would make an excellent Agility dog. Her athleticism is outstanding and she's very treat motivated to learn new tricks. Elle is ideally suited as a companion to an active owner - perhaps a jogger, beach runner, forest bather or power walker who works from home and is willing to continue her obedience training. Her coat is low maintenance so just needs a good brush through once a week. A home visit will be carried out so only coastal NSW areas north of Sydney and Greater Sydney areas will be considered (no interstate adoptions).

Male Staffy X Shar Pei

Aged 18 months

Medium size

Ollie is one cool dude ........... chills out either inside or outside the house but his athleticism makes him an ideal, 'take anywhere' companion for a daily jogger or beach walker. Ollie is a very active and social lad and interested in what you’re doing so whether you're working in your yard or garden he’s hanging around but not in your way! Moves like a Panther, is responsive to training and would also be Top of the Class at Agility as he loves a job to do from his human minders. Ollie sits for food, rides well in the car and has been taught to lead walk. He would be an ideal dog for a work from home, active owner who also likes to check out the dog friendly cafes nearby for a puppacino or two! Ollie's coat is low maintenance so only needs a brush through each week which he loves! A home visit will be carried out for this breed so only coastal NSW areas north of Sydney and Greater Sydney areas will be considered (no interstate adoptions).
