Asha

Private Adoption

It is with broken hearts that we are offering our beloved girl, Asha for adoption.

Asha is a wonderful 2 year old mastiff/staffy cross who we rescued at 3 months old. She had been through terrible abuse and came to us frightened and scarred. We have worked with her with the aid of a professional trainer to help her with her anxiety.

Around the home Asha is a delight. She is very loving, loyal and affectionate with whoever gains her trust. She will happily spend hours on end curled up on her doggy bed in the living room and is very relaxed and well-behaved. She is fully house-trained and obeys all basic commands. She is also fully up to date with all vaccinations and health checks.

 We would love dearly to keep beautiful Asha but the catch is that she is not good with children and we now have a 2 month old baby. Asha needs to go to a no-children situation with an owner that knows how to handle a dog assertively. Asha is incredibly loyal and genuinely only wants to please her owners. She will do absolutely anything for food/treats. She has come a very long way from the scared little dog we brought home and I believe she will continue to grow into an even more wonderful dog with the right care and attention.

Her anxiety exhibits itself socially and her behaviour varies from very submissive to fearful aggression (ie. high pitched barking, nipping). She should always be walked on lead in public situations. We have taken her to dog groups and she is very submissive and happy in those situations. However she can be unpredictable when meeting new dogs and should always be supervised.

Ideally Asha would thrive in a close relationship with her owner, lots of cuddles (she’s velvety soft!) and perhaps some land to roam on, or daily walks. We also run her on a treadmill at home and it’s her favourite activity, she loves it! It is important that Asha is kept away from children as she has shown unpredictable behaviour around them and her new owners will need to be responsible in this respect. She has never hurt a child, but children trigger her anxiety and with that arousal comes unpredictability.

We are in no rush to re-home Asha and will be waiting until the right person and the right situation comes along. We want only the best for our girl and we know that she will make the right person so happy with her sweet, loyal and affectionate nature. We are also happy to offer Asha on a trial basis to see if she is the right fit for you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more pictures, info or to arrange to meet Asha.

Sage is an 8 year old staffy x cattle dog. He is a loving, affectionate dog who likes a good run on the beach, playing in the waves and enjoying the great outdoors. He is quite timid at first, but doesn’t take long to get over his shyness – he then loves meeting new people and having a chat with them! He is intelligent and knows his basic commands such as sit, stop, go and shake hands. He has plenty of energy for a middle-aged dog and would love to share his life with fun-loving, playful individuals! He does not like skateboards at all and would prefer to live in the countryside rather than in town. He would be best in a gentle, loving home who can give him a good diet and exercise to help him lose some weight. Sage loves to be by your side so would also love to be allowed inside for cuddles in the evening!

The adoption fee for Sage is $200. If you are interested in meeting and adopting Sage, please complete the Adoption Application form available on the Contact page of our website www.cawi.org.au/contact-us or you can pick one up from our Op Shop in Brunswick Heads. Please return forms by email to cawidogs@hotmail.com or in person at our Op Shop. Alternatively, contact Megan on 0458461935 for enquiries about Sage. Applications and enquiries will be responded to on Fridays.
