Oh Chloe! Have you been in the fish pond AGAIN? The one with the fence around it that's supposed to keep inquisitive pups out? We warned her adoptive family that, as a 10-month-old, Chloe still displays puppy behaviours like chewing up thongs and digging up pot plants. They weren't bothered, since all that was still pretty fresh in their heads. You see, Natalie and her family adopted one of our Disney babies, Bagheera, earlier this year! So off to Cairns flew our Chloe to
Beautiful Belle has found her happiness down in Victoria with long-time Malamute enthusiasts, Sharon & Jimmy. Big thanks to her foster carers, Josh & Riss and Tracie, who all played an important part in this young lady's journey from pound dog to treasured family member. Proud new Dad, Jimmy tells us that he's so happy to have Belle in their home. "She is an absolute delight and has settled in as if she was always here! We are just so happy to have her, after losing our ot
Happy days for PapaBear as he settles into his permanent home with Dad, Ralph, who is absolutely rapt with his new little mate! This exciting chapter of his life begins with a name change. He's now Little Bear. His journey with SHAMROQ has been made possible with care from foster parents Jessica, Alex & Toni and with sponsorship from Chris & Sonya. Happy Furrytail ending, Little Bear! When in doubt and having profile writers block, consulting Urban Dictionary will always he
There may look to be a question mark stamped on her head, but there's no longer any uncertainty about Rosie's future! It was no surprise that Kelly-Anne & Jackson fell head over heels for their foster dog and decided that she should become a permanent member of the family. Happy furrytail ending, Rosie!
This is the self-assured face of a girl who's confident that her foster family cannot resist her. This is the cheeky expression of a dog who knows that she's home for good. This is the one and only Saskia. Those of you who've been with us for awhile will know the famous Hawkeye - a Malamute who we saved a few years back when he was in terrible condition and who went on to become a bit of a local celebrity! After a long journey getting him to a point where he was unrecognis
Congratulations to Louise & Tony, who have expanded their duo to a happy trio with the addition of our lovely Indi. As always, our gratitude goes to our foster carers, the Butner-Johnsons, for their time & effort. Most foster families have their hands full with one SHAMRPQ dog to look after, but this household has had THREE foster dogs at once for the last little while! Indi's brother, Loki, remains with them in the meantime while he searches for his forever home too. Hap
Banshee came to us in a bit of a mess with skin, ear and eye infections. With some help from our vets and TLC from her foster family, the Elwells, she was soon looking and feeling healthy. While her previous owners weren't sure of her age, they estimated that she could be as old as 13. She sure doesn't act like it though, now that she's got a new lease on life! The Elwells fell head over heels for the girl they affectionately refer to as their 'squishy-faced Grandma' and r
As you would all know, in addition to the breeds that we are known for rehoming, we also rescue crosses of those breeds from pounds where they're at risk of euthanasia. This was the case for Atari, who is microchipped as a Malamute X Boxer. Hmmm...maybe if you turn your head on the side and squint a little? Seeing her in the flesh, we could maybe guess at a bit of Akita and she does chat and howl, but we digress. Our crosses can sometimes take a little longer to find thei
