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)

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.

Ariel ID # D56946
Ariel Web
Breed: Bull Arab X Great Dane
Sex: Female
Age: 9 Months
Colour: Tan and White
A little about me:
Ariel is one big goofy girl who keeps everyone amused with her antics.  She may act the clown and be fun loving but there is also such a sweet side to her that is bound to melt your heart. Probably not for the first time dog owner and preferably someone who has experience with large breeds as she is quite a big girl and still has some growing to do yet. Still coming to terms with her size and strength we don't recommend her for a home with small children as they may get bowled over. If you are a fan of the big and the beautiful then pop down and meet this goofy girl.

Benji ID # D56999
  Benji Web
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier X Boxer
Sex: Male
Age: 11 Months
Colour: Brindle
A little about me:
Benji is a typical excitable young pup! If you are looking for a best mate and exercise buddy, this boy would be ideal as he really just wants to be part of the action. Benji is seeking a mature family to make him a part of their pack and provide him with training and guidance. He would greatly benefit from socialisation with other dogs as he is very enthusiastic and a bit rude when meeting new doggy friends. Good fencing in your back yard is also a must for Benji, just to make sure he doesn't go on a little adventure without you! If you are looking for a young dog who wants nothing more than to be by your side, then Benji could be for you!

This friendly boy is looking for an active family to include him in all their activities. If you are looking for a fun companion, this boy is for you.

Jax ID # D56836
  Jax-2-D56836
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier X
Sex: Male
Age: 1.7 Years
Colour: Chocolate and White
A little about me: I'M ON FOSTER
Jax has had a rough start to life and for the past 12 months he has been in the shelter environment. Jax came to Animal Aid in February, transferred from a shelter in New South Wales. After a short time with Animal Aid, we quickly realised that poor Jax just couldn’t cope in the confinement and stressful setting of the shelter kennels. Each time he was left in his pen he became more and more distressed. So Jax is now out on foster and relaxing in a natural home environment. He is just the sweetest dog, who loves affection from people.

Jax has never had anyone treat him as family, pay attention to his needs or provide the most basic training and guidance that every dog should receive. It’s about time this sweet boy received the care and love he deserves from a family he can call his own. Jax is seeking a mature family who have had experience with larger dogs and can give him lots of guidance and training.

Bruce ID # D56998
  Bruce Web
Breed: Bull Terrier Mix
Sex: Male
Age: 3 Years

A little about me:
Bruce is a happy go lucky boy who is full of life yet also has a bit of an independent streak. He enjoys a good rumble and tumble now and then whilst also likes going off to do his own thing. He does need some training and firm guidance, so an experienced owner will be more beneficial. So why don't you come down and meet this lively boy.

Ruben ID # D56850
  Reuben Web
Breed: English Pointer
Sex: Male
Age: 9 Years
Colour: White and Brindle
A little about me:
Ruben is a goofy and happy older boy, who doesn't act his age! Ruben is looking for a home where he can be by your side most days and be out and about with you as much as possible.  This darling dog is an absolute joy and he just loves spending time with people, as well as being friendly with other dogs.

Ruben is a real couch potato, so a daily walk and a comfy bed near his family is what he is after. He also requires someone who is knowledgeable about larger dogs and who understands what type of activities they enjoy. Ruben has spent quite a bit of time out on foster as he doesn’t cope very well in the shelter kennels environment. However, he is currently at the shelter and spending lots of time in the office, so why not pop down to Coldstream and pay him a visit!

Rex ID # D57113
  Rex 2 Web
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Sex: Male
Age: 4 Years
Colour: Brindle
A little about me:
Rex is as handsome as they come! he came to Animal Aid through no fault of his own and is now looking for a new family to love and care for him. During Rex’s health check we noticed that he couldn’t flex one of his elbows.  X-rays revealed an old injury where his elbow had been dislocated. It had been left untreated and the joint had then fused back together abnormally. This was causing a fair bit of pain and discomfort for poor Rex. After seeking specialist advice, Rex underwent amputation surgery at Animal Aid’s Vet Clinic.

Having only three legs hasn't diminished Rex’s enthusiasm for life one little bit and he still loves nothing more than a nice cuddle with our staff and volunteers. He is quite strong willed, so we are looking for a family that can provide him with firm guidance. Rex is okay with other dogs and would be happy to meet your existing pooch here at the shelter.

Kanga ID # D57112
  Kanga Web
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier

A little about me:
Kanga is a little cutie with unique white and black markings that really make him stand out. He is fun loving and loves to be the class clown but also likes to be the boss, so training will benefit this enthusiastic boy.  As he can be a little strong willed, hanging out with children might not suit. So why don't you jump in your car and come and meet this darling boy.
