[NEW FOSTER CARER FOUND BY DOC THROUGH ADVERTISING!]
                                   "DIDY"   
D.O.B  -  17/04/2008              

***
CURRENTLY IN FOSTER CARE IN QLD- waiting for a permanent loving home***


This pretty bluebrindle girl is enjoying foster care with 2 other greyhounds and is waiting for a new home as soon a possible!!!  She has been a mum to an accidental litter of puppies and was very clean, loving and patient with her little ones, now its her turn to enjoy what lifes all about.

NOTES FROM HER FOSTER MUM:
Didy is just proving to be the most beautiful house pet in her foster care home.  She is house trained, loves car rides and understands basic obedience and commands such as 'no' and 'down' and she also responds to her name.  She can eat and play amongst other dogs without displaying any signs of aggression or possessiveness.  At times, she has been left alone at home for several hours and has not exhibited any signs of distress or destruction in our absence.

 

She is interacting very well with small fluffy dogs but is not suited to a home with cats.  Didy is very gentle with small children and really loves to play with them or be taken for a walk by anyone, young or old.

 

She is extremely cuddley, an absolute piggy where treats are involved and she loves to get into some play with the little bossy staffy.  Didy is extremely fond of souveniering - a real collector! 

 

A very gentle girl, she will be a real gem in anyone's family.

KATIE(fawn) & JAMIE (blue)"
D.O.B: 21/08/2010 
REHOMED: FEBRUARY 2011 - Mt Gravatt (Katie) & Brighton (Jamie)


     

These two little guys were rehomed to loving pet homes at 6 months of age.  They loved lying around together with their other friend "a cat", and watching tv on the couch!  Whilst they were the best of friends they were not rehomed together however both settled in very fast and dont act as though they miss each other at all since they have other dogs (and cats!) to snuggle up with.  Little Katie was injured in the floods and had a terrible wrist injury that was not able to be attended to as soon as it should have been however her new mum and a team of human animal angels networked to seek the vet attention she needed.  A beautiful couple of pups that deserved to live the life of luxury!

They were the best of playmates although they needed some patience with practice walking on a lead as they tended to put the skids on and living on a property having free reign to explore on their own they were not walked on lead very much but being fast learners it shouldnt have posed much of a problem for their new mum/dad!  

Katie & Jamie had the free run of the house block and wandered down at their leisure to swim in the creek close by (not a good idea with Katie being injured when it rose very quickly in the flood disaster)!  They loved coming inside to lie on the couch for tv time and Jamie learnt to play fetch with his toys!  Jamie loved cuddles but little Katie was more shy but a great watch dog.  Katie would bark but was then happy to come out from hiding to make friends with other dogs - just a little timid girl waiting for the right home and thank god it came along, just as she deserved - fate!

Update:  HOME FOUND BY DOCJamie (Now "Buddy") owner feedback

APRIL 2011:  Buddy has settled in really well. We taught him to use the stairs (high set house) but are still struggling with the lead. A trainer is the next port of call for this. Other than the lead, he loves chasing toys that we throw, running around the yard like a mad thing, collecting all & sundry items from the house & the garden (bowerbird syndrome?), his chicken necks & the occasional cocktail Frankfurt as a treat (or bribe!).  Please be assured he is loved, spoilt and a part of our family.

OCTOBER 2011:  He celebrated his 1st birthday in August and is a picture of good health. He is spoilt rotten, gets plenty of cuddles & lots of walks.
I also take him to a local park as often as I can & let him run free. Man, is he fast! He loves to run & bounce & say hello to as many people & animals as possible.

Piggy was already associated with 2 cats (1 dog friendly cat and 1 not so dog friendly) and been fine, as well as being completely ok with little fluffy dogs as well as large dogs and had been left unsupervised with all inside and outside the house environment. 

The piglet had no race training at all.  She walked well on a lead and came when she was called.  Piggy was desexed, microchipped and vaccinated and was ready to be someone's shadow!piggy1
 
Named for her little curly piggy tail that her mum licked off at birth, thinking it was her umbilical cord, she still wags it like normal and is none the wiser about her indifferences to other dogs! 

Black with a white chest, big brown eyes and white socks. 





Now known as "Pippa", she has the loving home she was waiting for!

FOLLOW UP EMAIL RECEIVED 28/03/2011
we have changed her name to Pippa. She is settling in really well. The kids won't leave her alone and she is loving it. She is eating well so hopefully she will put on some weight quickly.

They couldn't find her pooh bear toy, so I left her blanket for the next dog that comes through. She is sleeping at the end of my bed on a dog mattress and her new favourite toy is a bright red soft toy car.
The cat (Katie) doesn't like her and chases her away but that is as far as the altercations have gone.
I have her on shark cartilage for her joints and a vitamin oil with A, D, E and something else for her skin and hair.  She wasn't happy about having to be outside today, but she will get used to it.
I will keep in touch and let you know how things are going and will send you some photos.
Don't be a stranger you can email me or call at any time.
Thanks again you made us all very happy. She is so beautiful.

I had the most incredible welcome home yesterday, I swear her little body went into over drive, shaking with excitement, bouncing all over the place and heaps of kisses. She is so adorable. I am amazed how fast she has adjusted to a different environment, I think she will be settled in no time.

The name piglet would suit her when it comes to eating, she loves her food but I am trying to monitor how much she eat and when. I have made her a vegetable mix that I mix with her meat loaf which she has morning and night. She will eat it in four sittings. She also has her kibblets on hand when she wants it and plenty of water.
The kids love her to bits and are annoying her 24/7, which she is lapping up. Yes, I did get her booties and am keeping a eye on her foot. It looks OK at them moment.
Mum hasn't met her yet, I wanted to let her adjust a little first, they will probably meet this Friday. I am going to get mum to make a new girly booty for Pippa for when we go out. She won't be living with mum but will send and fair bit of time with her. It would be too much for mum to have to look after.
Katie still is having her little temper tantrums with Pippa, but only occasionally and even sniffed Pippa yesterday. Katie is just letting everyone know who is boss. Other than that they are having no problems. They will be friends in no time.

Our little Pippa is fantastic, she has put on 4kg since I got her (now 24kg and you can't see her spine as much) she loves her food and is a little nut case. Pip went to the vets on tuesday and got the remaining stitches out. She wasn't impressed, poor baby, but she was very brave.

She loves to go for car rides and comes out with me on a regular basis. She is my special girl and is learning very fast. Can't seem to stop her from eating the cat food, but the vet told me not to worry it won't hurt her. Her foot is looking good, it is starting to heal nicely and doesn't weep anymore. She has taken over the house, there are toys everywhere, I am amazed how fast she has settled in. She is very content to lazy the days away in my bed room on her bed or out on the deck. She is such a gentle girl.

Hi Doc,

It was Katsie's 2nd birthday on Monday and I thought we would give you an update on her.

Katsie has settled in very well at home and she has become a most valuable member of our family.

She is hilarious, stubborn, loves people, hates other dogs and cane toads.

She is a guts and often demands dinner when she is hungry by barking, generally carrying on, stealing mums slippers, dads bottle tops and other items that she desires.

She loves licking the bottom of cold coke and beer cans.

She is the biggest nosy beak in the street always looking out the front door and windows at the slightest noise.

She knows she can hop on our bed at 5-6.00am every morning and then progressively takes over the bed.

She loves lying in the sun every morning until she tells us she is hungry.

She has put on about 4-5 kilograms of weight, i will send you some photos.

She hates staying at home she always wants to go with us everywhere, even if it's just a drive down the street.

She loves her toys and we play in the backyard once or twice per day, she especially loves her squeaky toys.

She runs rings around in the yard and I still laugh uncontrollably when she does so. She throws her toys in the air does a circle catches the toy throws in back in the air and so forth.

By far her most enjoyable activity is running. Originally we took her to off lease areas but soon found she was more scared of nearby dogs than running and enjoying herself.

She is currently lying on a blanket behind me in my office snoring, stretched out and proving rather hard to step over.

She is happy, healthy and overweight. She has been to the vet say 6 times in the past year for checkups, a torn off toe nail and several ear infections.

We feed her the dried food you recommended as well as a turkey neck in the morning, a mixture of top mince, carrot, potato and dry mix in the evening and half of my steak/ chop in the evening.

But back to her favorite pass time.

As we live in Beachmere we are blessed with heaps of space on the beach at low tide.

Every second day ( even in winter ) we take her to the beach. She grabs her favorite beach toy(s) and off we go to the beach.

We go to a secluded beach and off she runs, and runs and runs. It's obviously her favorite time, she has a huge smile on her face and she runs back to us just missing us by inches, sometimes hitting us. We spend about an hour out each time and she comes home, gets brushed and she sleeps for the next 12 hours on her own personal couch. i am the only one allowed to sit with her and she sleeps with her head on my lap.

I could keep going on an on - but I think you get the general idea.

I have heaps of photos and film of her and will forward you some of the more memorable of them.

We want to thank you for introducing katsie into our lives, she is our child, our grandchild all rolled into one.

She loves walking and this happens also once or twice every day - i dont think I have lost any weight - oh well.

We go overseas once or twice per year. We cannot think about putting her in a kennel so we fly Di's sister up from Wagga Wagga for every trip and she looks after the house -sorry she looks after katsie and the house.

We are thinking of getting her a companion but are worried that she will not take to a another dog? What do you think?

We hope you are over your trials and tribulations etc etc.

Regards
Terry Poole

FOLLOW UP EMAIL RECEIVED 28/06/2010

I had been meaning to email you with an update! The puppies are doing fine – I’m not sure if Fran told you but we had them both desexed the week before last. We ended up re-naming them Honey & Benson (sorry!).

Honey is the sweetest girl ever – all that she asks is to be right by my side. She is still quite shy and loves to have a play with her toys when she thinks no one else is watching. She gives me lots of cuddles and actually jumps up to put her paws on my shoulders when I come home each afternoon. She didn’t want to eat anything for the first day or two after we bought her home and her tummy was grumbling very loudly, but a little sprinkle of cheese on her food worked wonders to get her started and she now scoffs her dinner down faster than Ben does.

Benson is a big beautiful brat. His absolute favourite pastime is collecting anything he can find & making a pile of things on the lounge room floor– his toys, towels from the bathroom, blankets, slippers, socks, pillows, my glasses, bathrobes, magazines, packets of food from the pantry etc – you name it! Some things he chews, some he doesn’t – go figure! He loves to play and adores a roll around on the floor with Paul, although you’ve got to watch him when he gets excited because he starts nipping and boy does it sting LOL. He also loves to bark at the “other” black & white dog in the mirrors.

We had actually been wanting to ask you for some advice about Ben - we have had some problems with his possessiveness – he won’t allow Jazz (the Border Collie) to come near us and becomes very aggressive with her. Although if we are not part of the equation he doesn’t seem to have a problem with her and they can all be left out in the yard without any trouble. From time to time he has tried to do the same thing to Honey, although she has learnt to assert herself with him, particularly regarding her food. He has also become a bit too protective when we have had people come to the door – barking & growling at our visitors, the whole time they are at the house. We are hoping that desexing him will start to help the situation but don’t know what else we should do. We give him a very firm “no” whenever he starts carrying on but we need to get him sorted out.

So all in all, they are doing really well and are just beautiful babies. It was Benson’s birthday last week, he was two! Aside from the aforementioned issue, they have settled in to the family very well and having two was a good idea because I think they are much happier having each other as well as having us.

Jamie wants to know if you have a desexed female for adoption as he wants company for Joel..he is very spoilt and he has the run of the house but cries when no one is home!

I was thinking of Bree - I told Jamie about her today - Joel fits in well with the boys, Jamie woke up one night on the lounge to find Joel stretched out behind him.  He said it was so funny. Joel does play with the kids when they're around visiting and my grandson Chase who is 1yr old climbs all over him when he is there as well, we all just love him.  Only problem is he gets lonely when Jamie is at work all day. Jamie was originally thinking of getting a small dog but I suggested another greyhound and he is all for it - he said "What's wrong with another one having the run of the house?!", fantastic - let me know about Bree, she would be great for Joel and it would be great for her too.

Nan is a beautiful quiet soul with the biggest heart that was just waiting to melt at any opportunity.  With this peaceful old mum it was always the small things in life that have her oozing with joy and cheekiness.  A new blanket or a bone and she's head down, bum up and tail wagging.  Nan had 3 litters, that Doc knew of, and was a great mum to all of her pups even when they were fully grown wanting to jump all over her however she did get a little cranky and possessive over her dinner as she got older and didnt want to share 
with other dogs!  Nan was looking forward to being looked after and 
pampered herself in a loving home forever...thats exactly what she found!




FOLLOW UP EMAIL RECEIVED 14/02/11
Nan has been a wonderful dog, she has integrated really well here 
with the chooks, ducks and turkeys although she has had a playful 
nip at the turkeys tails occasionally.  Nan can be a bit disobedient sometimes but is improving as time goes on. She gets most exited 
now when my mum visits with her mature chihuahua and she does 
this funny little dance. They seem to be quite social and we are wondering about getting another dog for company? Any advice? 
She escaped a few times not long after she came here, I think just 
trying to find where she belongs sought of, but one day she went 
about a km away in abouy 4-5 mins, fast dogs! 
She seems more content now, in fact she seems to spend most of 
her day moving between couches and beds, as you can see from 
pics. We took her to doggy dentist and she had to have a couple of 
teeth removed, all in all she is a wonderful dog and is a welcome 
part of our family.
Probably written enough for now but will try to keep in contact 
more often. We have lots more photoes of nan too, usually on one 
of the couches!

Sammy has settled in just fine (photos attached). He & Bones now 
get on well together and teach each other new things in life. 

Sammy is learning from Bones that he does not have to follow me 
everywhere and also when it is time to go to bed. Bones has 
learned from Sammy (Bad Boy) how to get in and raid the pantry if 
left alone for any given time. They like to play together but are very rough with each other, meaning I'll have to take Bones for a service 
with the Doc at the end of the Month. 

Sammy loves his walks and 5.30am every morning stands outside 
the bedroom window rearing to go. All up, he is a lovely natured 
dog and it is hard to get mad with him, even when he stuffs up. If I 
could only get him to ease up on being a 24 hour peeing machine 
(every part of the back garden baptised by Sammy) that would be 
great!

REHOMED: FEB 2010
RENAMED:  "BASSY" (SEBASTIAN)
TOOWOOMBA

This boy was always happy happy happy and nothing really fazed him!  Running around in circles being a clown and being a real boy/grub maked Bassy a real character.  Not at all dominant to other dogs he had some good mates at Docs but always puts himself last in the pecking order.  Bassy settled in well to his new home much preferring cuddles from the kids and lying on the leather couch.  He became a new shadow and the love he learnt to accept fulfilled his life to a very happy completion.

carol
Happily retired "Carol" at her new home Victoria Point she is enjoying living with her elderly owner as her sole company and companion.  Carol was a soft easily intimidated girl and when Doc heard Mary was looking for a dog of her own he knew Carol would be just the one.  She prances along happily as her owner takes a slow shuffle along the waterfront being patient with her every move.  Once a picky eater she now enjoys home cooked meals "especially for Carol" and she has no doubt helped Mary to prepare hearty meals for herself when she may not have otherwise felt like it.  A great combination of two girls enjoying the world in peace together and Carol still does her crazy greyhound race around the yard in circles to entertain Mary with her silly fast-paced happy antics!

OTHER PETS
Docs dogs get along with other dogs very well (obviously cautionary and gradual introduction must be made given they will be intruding in your current pets territory initially).  These dogs have also been around a number of cats, seeing them around all the time however some have not been closely introduced or living closely with them yet.  All prior adopted dogs have had no reported problems with slow close introduction taken with care and love.  Details of how to do this will be provided prior to adoption. 


ADOPTION AGREEMENT
All adoptees must sign a form making a declaration to undertake to contact Doc at any time in the future should you no longer be able to provide a lifelong home for your dog, so he can be involved in finding them a new suitable home.
