Steffi ID # D56090
Steffi 2
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier Mix
Sex: Female
Age: 1 Year
Colour: White and Brindle
A little about me:
This gorgeous girl came to Animal Aid as a stray back in October. Unfortunately Steffi hasn’t had any luck finding a new family. She does have a couple of challenges that are hindering her search for love; Steffi is deaf and also extremely picky with her doggy friends. Animal Aid dog trainer Michelle has been working with this sweet girl for many months, as Steffi has certain training needs that are a little more involved than with most dogs.  Steffi is very smart and always willing to please. She has coped amazingly well in the shelter environment, her resilience is incredible. Despite being with us for over 6 months Steffi is still the same sweet, spirited dog we first met, but with a few more tricks under her belt, thanks to Michelle! As much as we love her, this is not a life for Steffi. She deserves so much more!

We are looking for a mature family who have owned dogs before to give this beautiful girl a chance. Steffi is very selective about her canine friends, she’s either likes them or she doesn’t, there’s no in-between! But we are willing to undertake dog meets with suitable families, for as long as it takes. Structure and guidance is needed to create a strong bond with Steffi and once this is achieved the possibilities are endless!
You can see Steffi on Magisto (opens in new tab)

Bonnie ID # D56594
D56594 BonnieKS
Breed: Kelpie X Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Sex: Female
Age: 8 Months
Colour: Tan
A little about me: 
Bonnie is a very sweet and energetic young girl who is full of beans and loves to be with her people.  Bonnie would greatly benefit from some obedience training and socialisation to improve her manners a little and also help her to relax more around her doggy friends.  Bonnie would suit a mature family who is happy to make her one of the pack and include her in family activities. Bonnie requires a good size yard with decent fencing so that she doesn't go visiting the local park on her own!  Bonnie is happy to meet everyone that comes her way and is a very happy young girl. She just needs someone to give her a second chance and a few tummy rubs and she will just thrive in a home environment!

Rocky ID # D56788
  Rocky Web
Breed: Labrador X American Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Sex: Male
Age: 3.5 Years
Colour: Tan
A little about me:
Many people take one look at Rocky and make assumptions about what he is like as a dog and his behaviour. Rocky may be strong and energetic, but he is also incredibly smart and he’s one big softie! He is always looking to please and hates to be told off, so does his best to follow the guidance and direction given from the people around him. Labrador X American Staffy Rocky is so eager to learn and he has been coming along in leaps and bounds when spending time with our staff and volunteers.  3 year old Rocky is really responsive and will be great to train and socialise at an obedience class. Rocky was at the Claws N Paws Adoption Day recently and he was a champion! He did what he was told and when he strayed a little, one word from our team and he was back on track. Not only that, he made friends with fellow Animal Aid shelter residents Rossi and Bonnie and was snuggling with them by the end of the day. Rocky has a very playful side and just LOVES playing with his toys, especially balls. He can often be seen playing with our volunteers in the exercise yard and he would happily fetch the ball all day long if he had a friend willing and able! Rocky is best suited to a mature family without young children as he is full of beans and may just bundle them over in his excitement! Please don’t judge this lovely dog by his face, he is so much more than that. If you are looking for a smart dog that loves a pat and loves to play even more, then Rocky just might be the one for you!

Kaya ID # D56540
D56540-Kaya2
Kaya Web
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix
Sex: Female
Age: 5 Years
Colour: Tan
A little about me:
Kaya is a mature and sensible girl who is looking for someone who can offer her a quiet home and lots of affection. She has had a lot of ups and downs in her life and now she needs a home with a mature family and no other animals where she can begin to feel stable and secure. In time, Kaya may be able to live with children or other animals but first she would need to head off for some training to help her form a strong bond with her family and build her confidence. Kaya can often be found in the exercise yard here at Animal Aid snoozing in a shell pool and she’ll head over to visitors walking by to lean against the fence for a pat. Kaya loves a bit of affection and is more than partial to a good old belly rub. She just needs someone to give her a chance, someone who can see her for the loving and sweet girl that she is.

Jet ID # D56802
Jet 2 Web
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Sex: Male
Age: 6 Years
Colour: Dark Brindle
A little about me:
Jet is a fairly strong-willed boy, who requires good leadership and a home that has a quiet and calm environment. A mature home with high school aged children is best for this pocket rocket purely due to his strength, as he's likely to bundle them over in his excitement! Jet loves being around people and is always up for a game of fetch, although he's not so good at bringing the ball back! Jet will thrive in a family that can show him who's boss and provide strong guidance. Jet gets along okay with some other dogs and will improve with further socialisation, but for now he does tend to choose his friends carefully and is somewhat of a ladies man! We know that the right family is out there for this darling boy; a family that can bring the best out in him. Jet just has so much potential!

A little about me:
Big boofa Harley has found himself seeking a new home.
Not for your first time dog owner, Harley needs a family who has large dog experience and plenty of it. Already quiet well mannered but he would still benefit from heading off to your local obedience club. Keeping his manners in check is a must with this huge lad. He sure does love playing with his toys and heading out and about on his daily walks with the volunteers. Not suited to young children as he may ball them over.

Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier X Boxer
Sex: Male

This boy would not suit being around young children due to his energetic nature. He is chasing a family willing to put in the hard yards doing some basic training and socialisation training. Benji loves spending his time out in the yards running and playing with the staff and volunteers. He sure enjoys hanging out with his poochie pals but can be a little full on and rude from time to time. If you are willing to give this lad the home he deserves then call the shelter today.
