struggling to stand. With a bit of veterinary care he
is feeling so much better and there is even a smile
on his face. Read his story p13.

Miss Rosie, who has been with us for a few years
looks so cute with her Easter bonnet. She is
hoping for a few glances and maybe some
thoughts of a forever home! Miss Luna thinks this
is all a bit peculiar – rabbit ears on a dog. Really?
She is so pretty she does not need dressing up!
Webster and Maple, Bosley and Pearl are all
looking their greatest to make you smile for Easter.

EASTER COVER REVISITED
Back in 2016 Pedro graced the cover
of our Easter Edition which is regarded
as one of the best covers ever by everyone who
has seen it. Pedro made a wish that Easter—did it
come true? We catch up with Pedro ( now Buddy )
in his forever home with Oznur.
Hi Doggie Rescue readers. I was Pedro at DR
but now my name is Buddy. In 2016 when I was
12 years old, a young couple started fostering
me. But after three months they thought I was
too good to let go and they adopted me. You
humans call that a foster fail.. Wag wag (ha!ha!)
I live in North Manly now and my human family
take me everywhere with them. Even though I'm
14, I still have heaps of energy and still get to
walk at least once a day for an hour, going to the
beach or park. After that I sleep all day until my
Dad comes home from work and plays with me.
They say you can't teach old dogs new tricks but
my Mum taught me lots of new tricks. She hides
a treat in her fist and I find where it is by putting
my paw on it. I even understand Mum when she
says ‘I’ll be back soon' and I don't go to the door
as I usually would.
“ My favourite thing is burying treats
in the garden and then waking up my
mum in the middle of the night to go
and find one. But for some reason
that's not her favourite…” Buddy
MARCH 2018 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 11
Monika and her team thinks I've spent lots of time
outside because I had bad elbows and knees with big
scabs and fly bites on my ears.. Now I have 6 beds
and many blankets! My family is making sure that I
always have a soft bed to sleep on for the rest of my
life. I also have a big wardrobe as I love wearing
jumpers during winter and Mum thinks I look even
cuter with my jumper on.
I never bark at home but I do cry a bit if people walk
past our backyard and don’t say hello. I love people
and want to say hello to everyone!! My favourite thing
is burying treats in the garden and then waking up my
mum in the middle of the night to go and find one.
But for some reason that's not her favourite…
If you are considering adopting or fostering a dog “ These days my dreams are all sweet…” Buddy
I ask you to please consider seniors like me.
We have so much love to give and we deserve a
second chance as much as puppies and other dogs.
Think about how awesome it would be to not have to
worry about toilet training or having your furniture or
shoes chewed? We just need a little bit of time to get
to know you also.. But trust me you won't regret it and
will thank me :) Lots of love from Buddy

Trevor’s story is a sad one. When he came from the
pound he was reluctant to stand due to the pain of
arthritis. His ears were fly bitten. He was thin and
undernourished. Trevor looked like what he was…
unloved and unwanted. Disposable.
Trevor is having his lumps assessed and his hips,
stifles and lumber spine region x-rayed and he has
started on pain management for arthritis. We will then
figure out how the rest of his body is coping. He is
enjoying good quality food and, his smile has returned!
This sweet, gentle boy loves attention and will make a
loyal and loving companion. He is wishing everyone a

• IN THE SPOTLIGHT LONG TERMERS By Bianca Nati DoggieRescue Kennel Hand
“ MEET JAX ”
It’s the time of the month when we
showcase some of DoggieRescue’s
overlooked doggies. This month meet
our March long termer star Jax! He is a
mix of a sweet natured Labrador and
an intelligent Border Collie. At 5 years
old he is hands down the sweetest
young man I know!
“ Jax is very passionate about the people that he loves,
he’s the kind of dog that craves cuddles and walks (or runs
for that matter!), but don’t get me started on how much he
adores tummy rubs! ” Bianca
Jax ( seen above with a litter mate ) was actually born at
the shelter all the way back in November 2012.
His mumma was called Bonnie, she had a litter of pup-
pies that were all adopted, and she found her forever
home in the end too! But unfortunately Jax ( along with
his brother Lachie and sister Tabitha ) didn’t find the
perfect family that time around.. Fast forward a few
years, and we still see Jax’s gentle and loving face at the
shelter, constantly wondering when he will find the dream
family he has always wanted.
When Jax meets anyone for the first time, he can
be very nervous and stand-offish. If you want to
meet our beautiful boy, be prepared to come in a
few times so he really gets to know you. Like most
rescue dogs, Jax’s trust needs to be gained….
In his day yard, he loves playing with toys. If you play
with him long enough, you get to experience the fun and
not so rare form of zoomie Jax! This is where he runs
around you and play bows with his long tail wagging high
in the air, waiting for you to chase him and go play with
him again! He could go on like this for hours!

nothing more than a lie down and a cuddle.
Being the delicate young man he is, he would
need a very experienced handler that can help
desensitise him to the things that would make him
uncomfortable like strangers and new, unfamiliar
situations. He can also occasionally get spooked
by loud noises and sudden movements.
Jax would be best suited to an active adult home
with a backyard for him to run around in all day to
his hearts content. Rescue experience is a must.

• • • • “JAZZY & BUFFY” by Lewis Age: 11 & Mitchell Age: 8
Meet my Dogs By Lewis
My dog Buffy is all I can ever ask for with a
dog. She is so affectionate with everyone she
meets and sometimes jumps up and hugs
you with her front legs if she’s desperate.
What Buffy likes doing the most is spending
time with dad or going to the dog park. Some
of the dogs she has met are Chester, Matilda
and obviously, her friend/sister, Jazzy. She
also likes to bark at other dogs when she is
in the car going to the dog park.
Buffy has fun by rounding up other dogs
(pretending that they’re sheep) because she
is a kelpie and kelpies are farm/working dogs.
Another thing Buffy has fun with is chewing
her bone which she always steals from Jazzy
even though she has her own bone.
Some things that I like to do with Buffy are
going to the dog park with her, patting her,
running with her and cuddling her.
I LOVE BUFFY!!!!!!!!!!!!! #My dogs are for life
Meet my Dogs By Mitch
I love my dog Jazzy, she is quirky,
energetic, very fussy and lovable.
Jazzy likes to chase her ball, and
hide it in her hut so we can’t get it.
She likes to play tug-of-war and be a
honey-badger. I love putting her on
my lap, running with her and throwing
the ball for her. Jazzy loves going to
the dog park where she loves to join
in games with the bigger dogs and
pretend she is one of them. Jazzy
meets lots of fun little friends at the
dog park too. Most of all Jazzy loves
her sister Buffy, especially when she
licks her ears and gives her plenty of

SHY, TIMID DOGS
NEED TIME & LOVE
By Sarah Wooltorton
Why you should take a chance on a timid dog.
Just like people, with dogs often the ones who are the
most standoffish are the ones who need our love the
most. I want to tell you a story of why you should take
a chance on a dog that might have been at the shelter
a bit longer, might be a bit afraid of walking, or afraid
of loud noises, and why it might just be the best thing
you ever did.
Backtrack to May 2016 and I had been working at
Doggie Rescue for almost 2 years – my doggie
obsession was truly ingrained and I had decided to
foster a needy dog. I had a number of favourites on
my list so my decision was a hard one.
But how to decide on which dog to foster? CLICK TO SEE

trust me, from what I knew he had been at the shelter
for a long time. We believe he was mistreated by a
man before coming to the shelter, based on his fear
of them. In that time, he had had a few adoption
appointments, but he would always shake and was
very scared of new people. But he LOVED other dogs,
and got along with most dogs he was in a yard with.

A FEW QUICK TIPS FOR MANANGING TIMID DOGS
1.) Avoid direct eye contact for too long or intimidating greetings :To dogs, eye contact is quite intimidating. In
the doggie world, eye contact means you are challenging them. Talking loudly and walking quickly towards them
can also be quite scary. To approach a timid dog that doesn’t know you, it’s best to crouch down and offer your
hand from behind. With a treat or just to let them sniff you. See how they react. Reach under to pat them, not over
them from above.
2.) Find something they love – each dog is different : Not every dog loves toys, or food, or other dogs. Speak to
the Kennel Hands about what they’ve observed. These dogs are like our pets – we see them every week. We know
what scares them and what excites them. A squeaky toy to one dog might be terrifying, but to others it might be like
Christmas morning! If you find something that can help you bond with them, you’re already on the road to success
and they are on the road to recovery.
3.) Recognise the Signs of stress :Recognising when your furry companion is not coping is absolutely key to
getting them to trust you and to their recovery. Scared or timid dogs WILL heal, if they learn how to calm them-
selves and adapt to new situations, and this can only happen if YOU can first recognise what’s scaring them. You
can either then create a positive reinforcement with that item/animal/person (give them a treat, reward them
verbally), or if it is simply too stressful you need to take them away from that situation for the time being.
A few signs of stress to look out for (some are more subtle than others ): Tail between the legs, licking their lips,
drooling, panting or yawning, body shaking, lowering or curving the body (trying to make themselves scarce),
barking or growling, reactivity, tense forehead and ears, erect/alert body language (are they on edge?)
28 MARCH 2018 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE
My biggest tip to helping a rescue dog in need? Most of all, my biggest advice to anyone considering
adopting a shelter long-termer? You have to commit to them and their healing process. You wouldn’t give up your
kids just because they had a learning difficulty, or a food allergy would you? No, you love them because they are
not perfect and help them where they struggle. Committing to your new doggy, no matter how long that takes
means you have to be unselfish and give them time to de-stress and heal from what has happened to them.

Will you give her that chance?
Sam’s Face Was Full Of Fear Sam is a recent rescue and the first
photo was taken of him in the pound
and saved from a facebook page. He
looks so much like Seb when he first
came into DoggieRescue’s care….
When I look at that photo I realize just
how far Seb, and also Quinn, have
come. Like Sam, Seb and Quinn were
very timid and frightened of humans.
When a dog has been ‘broken’ it is a
long journey back to trusting mankind
again. Sam has that still in front of
him but I am sure he too, like my
beloved Seb, will one day trust again.
