We very sadly and regretfully need to rehome our lovely 8 year old girl THEMBA.

We adopted her when she was a 6 month old handful from Save a Dog Scheme in Victoria.

She was most probably mistreated and left to stray for sometime before they found her.

Themba can be afraid of strong discipline from men such as yelling and gets a bit distressed when tied up and left.

Themba is much more obedient and calm now after quite a lot of training which she loved.

She will still need a firm hand on her lead sometimes if she is not walked enough.

Now with a 3 year old .. chronic illness and living in rental accommodation.

We do not know if we will be able to take Themba when we move next away.
We feel Themba would be much happier in a home with other dogs or someone that can give her the attention and exercise she deserves to see out her senior years of which I am sure there are many more yet.

She would most probably be better suited to a home without small children. while Themba calmly tolerates our toddler dragging her around the yard by her lead .. she has reacted sharply with bared teeth a couple of times when he went near her bone or food.

They need close supervision at any rate .. Themba has a lovely gentle temperament apart from this and loves to play and has a great sense of humour.

MEG is a 6-7 year old female Shepherd cross Kelpie .. her owner has passed away and there are no family members that can care for her.

Her owner adopted her from someone who mistreated her .. Meg has changed into a very loving dog who gets very excited when you come home .. she loves a walk and obeys commands .. Meg also loves her food and is a little overweight.

Meg is an outside dog but likes to be inside when there is a thunderstorm .. she frets quite a bit with thunder but if she is inside with you she is more settled.

She would be suited to most people but not small children as Meg has never been around them and also because of her mistreatment we could not foresee what she would do if they pulled her tail etc.

Her previous owner used to spin her around by the tail .. it took a while for her to trust anyone stroking anywhere near that area but she is fine now .. Meg deserves a loving family that give her all the care she needs.

Adoption Fee is a Donation to 4 Paws Animal Rescue
