Our current released dogs

Tavish

Name: Tavish

Age: 9 months (DOB 7/7/18)

Breed: Labrador

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Black

Tavish was not suitable for the Seeing Eye Dog program as he does not have the desired qualities for the role. He is a very sweet dog who is highly intelligent, but does have some underlying anxiety that when mixed with his energy levels was just not suitable for a working dog role.

Tavish is an affectionate boy who loves to play with humans and other dogs, however in order for him to be the best dog he can he needs quite a specific home. An experienced dog handler that can engage with him and challenge his mind is ideal. He would enjoy further training or some sort of agility or flyball training.

Due to his love of play and other dogs he will need his leash manners to be maintained as he does have a tendency to pull. Tavish’s new owner needs to have the patience to be able to dedicate time to him or be in the position to take him with them to work each day as he can get up to mischief in the house alone.

A country property or quiet property with a decent sized yard would be desirable as high traffic areas can cause him to alert bark at noises. He would suit a home either with teenage children or none at all. As he loves to play he could easily be rehomed to a house with an existing dog that would enjoy his playful nature. 

Tavish is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Gino

Name: Gino

Age: 1 year (DOB 23/3/2018)

Breed: Labrador

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Black

Gino was not suitable for the Seeing Eye Dog program, as he found it too difficult to focus on training when in busy environments. He is an excitable boy who loves to play, and this unfortunately affects his capability to focus on work. Gino would, however, make a lovely, fun pet for an active owner.

He is big and friendly but still quite immature. He needs a home that will give him clear boundaries, plenty of exercise and be committed to further training.

Gino loves to play with other dogs and would benefit greatly from having a confident furry friend that could help release his high energy levels. He can be cheeky in the home and will seek out and find items to play with around the house if he is left unsupervised.

He is still young so will need a loving and patient family to help teach him right from wrong. Due to Gino’s size and strength he would be best suited to a home with older teenagers or adults, without a cat.

Gino is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Hadley

Name: Hadley

Age: 1 year (DOB 27/3/2018)

Breed: Labrador x Golden Retriever

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Yellow

Hadley was not suitable for the Seeing Eye Dog program as he did not meet the high standards required on elbow x-rays, however this will not impact him as a pet dog.

Hadley is a big, beautiful, affectionate boy who has great home behaviour. He loves his humans, and is used to having them around him, so would best suit a home where he is not left alone for long periods every day.

Hadley is happy to chill around the house, but does love playing with his toys and going for walks. He can become a little excited around other dogs, however is easily managed with the use of a head collar.

He is a super sweet boy who will do well with any type of family.

Hadley is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Yale

Name: Yale

Age: 8 months (DOB 17/8/18)

Breed: Labrador

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Yellow

Yale is naturally excitable in nature. Along with his excitable nature he is easily distracted by other dogs and is not confident in new environments. This unfortunately affects his capability to focus on work.

Yale would however make a lovely, fun pet. He is very clever, affectionate and active. He loves the company of his humans and becomes quite anxious when not around them.

For this reason we are looking for a home where he will have a lot of company and not be left alone for long periods every day.

Yale loves to play with other dogs but can become excited easily therefore would be better suited to a household with an older dog that could act as a calming influence and help to teach him good doggy manners.

He is good in the home however he does have moments where he is cheeky and will investigate what’s on the couch or the bench. He is still quite young so will need clear boundaries and ongoing obedience training.

Someone with a calm demeanour who has the love and patience to help build his confidence and help him to see that new environments aren’t so scary. This will help him to focus on his handler and settle his excitement levels.

Yale is good with kids and has had exposure to cats.

Yale is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.
