CURRENTLY IN FOSTER, Please call the refuge to make an appointment on 5494 5275.
We need your help Sunny Coasters! We are urgently seeking a permanent home for him, he has been in foster for 3 months now and is so much happier in a home environment than the shelter. His foster carer's have decided that they would like to travel which means that we really need to find Rebel a home quickly before they pack up the caravan! When poor Rebel arrived here he had some anxiety issues and being housed in a shelter surrounded by other dogs didn't help at all. Since being in foster he has settled a great deal and is now seeking his forever after home.
Ideally this person would be an experienced staffy owner who is home more often than not, retirees or work from home people would be ideal as he loves human companionship and frets if left alone for too long. Rebel is good with children over 10 years, loves to meet new people and is a favourite with our volunteers and visitors at the refuge. Rebel needs a home without cats or other dogs please and during his initial settle in phase, we would not want him to have contact with any other animals. This boy loves playing with toys and food. Normally we'd never recommend this, but Rebel does not need to be walked, instead he'd love a car ride or a game of chase in the yard, during his settle in period we would be asking the adopter to keep his interaction with the outside world to a minimum, this will give him time to bond with his new family and learn to feel safe again. Rebel is house trained and sleeps inside, he needs high solid fencing to help keep him safe.
The refuge will be assisting Rebel's new owner to settle him in and can offer to place him in the home initially as part of our foster to adopt program. If you think you can offer Rebel the home he so desperately needs and wants please call us on 5494 5275 and ask to speak to the animal coordinator.
