Homed Dogs

Occasionally we like to post follow-ups of dogs that have recently been adopted and settled into a new home. Perhaps you’ll see some of the dogs that were previously listed for adoption.

If you’re a sucker for a happy ending, have a look at CAWI’S DOG TALES – you’ll see some heart-warming stories.



Mellow massive Missy, a 5-year-old Australian Kelpie x Border Collie, lived with Oscar, who was adopted last Monday; their mum suffered a stroke and had to go live in an aged-care-home.
Foster carer Hannah, family & their jewel of a dog Jake opened their hearts & home to Missy for a week. (Missy’s new adoptive family were moving house & didn’t want to subject Missy to any disruptive vibes).
Today, Missy headed to her new family (Mum & two daughters) who fell in love with the big darling & are keen to provide the cuddles, exercise & nutritional diet that will ensure Missy loses 12kgs in weight (as advised by the vet).
Happy days sweet Missy – can’t wait to see you looking trim taut & terrific in a few months time!
Many thanks to everyone involved in Missy’s care & transition 💓




OSCAR the 7-year-old Shih Tzu x Maltese:

Poor little Oscar’s mum, suffered a stroke recently, and subsequently had to move into an aged-care-home. 

Oscar’s sad little face finally lit up today, as he raced up the stairs to his new mum and home. 

His brand new buddy Bear, the 4-year-old Lhasa Apso rescue dog, showed him around the enchanting garden, and all became well in his world again. 

Oscar’s previous mum is so happy for him too. Enjoy sweet boy! 



Sashi Adoption Update:
Gorgeous elegant Sashi, the 4-year-old red & white Border Collie, has enjoyed a momentous makeover while in CAWI’s care. She arrived on heat, having already birthed several pup-litters in her short life. Once off heat, she was spayed which also removed several problematic cysts. She was vaccinated, heart-worm tested & treated for intestinal worms, fleas & ticks. A completely decayed tooth was extracted & a biopsy taken from her raw/damaged nose. She is now undergoing reparative treatment with the intended aim of rejuvenating her nose to at least 90% normality. During this time, Sashi has delighted in the love, care & stability provided by her top-notch foster carers  💖
YESTERDAY, 29/10/18 Sashi moved to her new adoptive home near the beach, where she will benefit from more adoration, many walks & swims in her new magnesium pool.
Dear Sashi, what a privilege it has been to be part of your transformation into a bright & loved-up future. We wish you only the best  💝 Many thanks to everyone involved.



Hi, I’m Sashi, a beautiful elegant female 4-year-old red & white Border Collie.

When I was young my owner chained me to a tree where I was unable to seek shelter & my nose burned so bad it took years to heal (it still looks a bit funny). The raw bloody gouges left by my chain collar also took a long time to mend.

I admit this demeaning life made me a tad OCD ‘cos I only had shadows & light to play with. 18 months ago, my rescuer held me though & loved me back to some normality. I only play with light & shadows sometimes now & it’s easy to distract me from that game ‘cos I’d rather hang out with humans & I like toys too.

Now I’m in need of a new stable loving home where I can rest, play & adore you to bits. I’m very obedient, affectionate & really want to please. I walk well on the lead, stay close off the lead & come when called.

I do get a bit anxious at times but I’m relaxing hugely with my foster carers. They’re giving me lots of love & they adore stroking my gorgeous soft coat. I’ve hung out with lots of other dogs but still need more socialising.  I’m a sweet good girl & I can’t wait to meet you. Please phone Shell at CAWI on 0458461935 to make a date.
