has been a dramatic change in her. She loves pats &
playing, and most of all walks with Piper. We still get the

FOSTER OF THE
Monika retells the heart warming story of a gentle
dog called Scarlet who, against all odds, survived
having her leg amputated and chemotherapy,
to find love and happiness with a special family.
Our search for, and successful finding of a
foster carer for Scarlet our osteosarcoma girl
was definitely our foster of the year for 2018.
Back in August we were contacted by a pound
with a 9 year old ‘RESCUE ONLY’ Boxer x
with a swelling on one foot. The reports from
the pound were that this dog had a beautiful
nature and adored hugs. We decided to give
her a chance and Scarlet ( as we called her )
We biopsied the mass on her foot and results
were the worst we could have expected. She
had osteosarcoma, an aggressive, very painful
cancer that spreads quickly through the body
and can result in spontaneous fractures at the
site. The prognosis was that if we did nothing
Scarlet might have just a few short, painful
weeks or months to live but with total leg
amputation and chemo she might get up to
12 months on average, perhaps even more of
pain free life. We decided on amputation and
then a course of chemotherapy.
Scarlet needed to find a foster family
“ In early November Scarlet found her foster family
and it was such a special day!” Monika before chemotherapy could begin.
JANUARY 2019 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 13
Scarlet and Jane and Kev
“ A FOSTER FAMILY ”
After grieving the loss of our little Buster, who we had for 18 years, we
ventured up to Monika's Rescue and started volunteering to walk a few
dogs each weekend. We met many dogs of various types, each and every
one a delightful character. We thoroughly enjoyed walking with them and
looked forward every week to going up to visit the dogs at Monika's. We
also met so many wonderful people who give their time to help out there.
“ After about a month of just walking dogs, I felt I would like to help out more
and was wondering what I could do. One Sunday, while waiting for my
four-legged walking companion to be brought out, I was reading the notices
that are posted around the venue. I saw the notice about Scarlet and
By Jane & Kev straight away I wanted to do what I could to help her. I contacted Monika
and arranged to meet Scarlet and was taken with her straight away.” Jane
Scarlet came to live with us and she didn't take long to
settle in. She loves to snuggle and be hugged and she loves
food and she responds so well to us. Everybody who meets
her says how lovely she is. When we walk down the street, or
at the dog park, people always stop to talk to her and fuss
over her. Children just adore her and she adores them! She
loves being with people, she loves children, she loves playing
with other dogs and she even loves cats. They all come up to
her and say hello and connect straight away with her. She is
such a beautiful girl! She has so much love to give and she is
so gentle and sweet natured, despite her size.
We are often asked why she lost her leg and when we tell
them the story they say how amazingly well she is doing.
Especially considering it is only a few months ago that she
had her leg removed. One man commented "If that dog had
four legs you wouldn't be able to keep up with her!" Oh yes!
She certainly gets up a pace and we have to run or jog to
keep up with her. The chemo gets her down but not for long.
She is a strong girl and fighting the disease and doing really
well. She has made her way into our hearts and home and
we have nicknamed her Scallywag.
We are so grateful to Monika for the heart and mission that
she has to save lives. We are so glad that she rescued
Scarlet and that she can now be a part of our lives. We are
so glad that we can get to make Scarlet's life a little better
and be able to help her through this difficult time.
I would highly recommend to anyone to give an animal BECOME A FOSTER CARER

lovely boy Jax. He was one who made you work moments at the shelter than negative ones. The main reason
being our adoptions and the wonderful families the dogs find!
One recent adoption that brought so much joy to me
personally, was the adoption of our gorgeous old lady
Heather—who I featured in the October 2018 DoggieRescue
magazine. Heather came to DoggieRescue in a horrible state
with huge mammary tumours, and thankfully we got lucky
cause they were benign! After just over a year and a half, she
has finally found her forever home where she can live out the
rest of her days knowing what having a real family outside of
the shelter feels like!
There have been so many happy and heart warming
adoptions, which makes what we do all worth it in the end.
We also meet a tonne of new and amazing people each
year, giving up their time to assist us with the dogs. Whether
it be to walk them, assist us at events, feed them, clean up
after them, give them massages (I’m ALWAYS jealous of the
dogs with this one!) or help organise the volunteer walkers
that come in to take them out for their big walk! We wouldn’t

Old dogs need homes too!
Is adopting a new dog on your agenda for 2019? Have you ever thought of giving an older dog a home?
Buddy ( was Cupid ) was adopted from DoggieRescue by Kate and Martin Bevz in August 2017 when he
was 11 years old. His adoption photo appears above. This is his story….
By Kate & Martin Bevz
The first day we met Buddy was full of
mixed emotions. He was somewhat
absent, shy, scruffy and probably a bit
confused as to what would happen next.
We took him for a walk and after a short
time felt a connection.
The first few weeks were difficult and
emotionally draining. Buddy would spend
his days scratching his tummy on the
carpet and digging at the front door when
we were not home. He struggled to walk up
the three flights of stairs to our apartment.
As he only has 3 teeth, we had to try a
variety of soft and wet foods to see what he
could eat, what he liked and what would
not upset his stomach. We had a few
But day after day, when we came home
he would greet us with such joy. He would
jump up and down, run around wanting to
play, snuggle up next to us on the lounge
and roll over for tummy scratches.
We were getting to know him, and he
was getting to know us....

would play the “Thinking Game”.
This is a game where you try to
work out things that confuse you.
Such as...Sally lives across the
street and is a GREYHOUND…
but she is black! Shouldn’t a Greyhound be grey? Freddie
next door is a GERMAN SHEPHERD but he was born in
Australia so shouldn’t he be an Australian Shepherd?
Thinking….Jack is a BOXER —but he never, ever fights, in
fact he is really friendly. So why is he a boxer? Poor little
Trixie is a POODLE… why would you call a dog after poo?
How embarrassing! My mate Harry is a ROUGH COLLIE but
he is so very gentle, not rough at all! Are you confused too?

SHELTER DOGS By Nicolle Nelde Volunteer

“ Have you ever wondered what makes a reactive dog? I have, after I met Johnny. Reactive is the term for dogs
that overreact to certain stimuli, usually barking or lunging at other dogs, which can be very scary. I have been
volunteering in the shelter for a few years now, and I noticed certain dogs just seemed to be out of focus.”
Johnny was a reactive dog. I assumed he had been Johnny and I got to know each other, and I was learning
adopted but when I asked about him, I learned that he his triggers and what to do to minimise them, while
was in the back kennels, because he was so reactive gaining his trust. It’s a lot of trial and error, it takes time
he would be beside himself if exposed to another dog. and there are setbacks. Initially he was so unresponsive,

Johnny has now been adopted (after having been
returned twice!) and that is the best motivation of
all. Working with him for a while enabled me to
give the new owners some insights into his
behaviour and I hope, with the work I started, he is
now on his way to being a happy content dog.
Currently I am working with Gideon ( pictured with
me) , who’s personality is very different from
Johnny’s. He is confident and curious, but doesn’t
seem to be aware of how to interact with other
dogs politely and how to interpret their body
language correctly. As a result, his approach is
often too much and not received well by the other
dog, which has gotten him in trouble in the past.
We are working with him by slowly introducing
other dogs in a controlled way, so that he can
associate positive experiences with meeting
other dogs and learn appropriate manners.
It also helps to expose him to the world outside the
shelter so he can experience that other dogs can
be friendly or even ignore him entirely. Since we
started with him, his behaviour has already
improved noticeably. Hopefully his forever home is
not far away and I can start helping the next dog.
• Reactive dogs are often misunderstood. They may not have
been socialised, possibly even kept in isolation for long periods of
time, now everything scares them, including other dogs. Their
fears and insecurities have manifested in their reactivity,
which has become their way of coping. Each dog has different
reasons and reacts in different ways, but when you spend one
on one time with them long enough, you find the triggers and can
help them with better ways of dealing with it.
The lack of exercise, mental stimulation and training in a shelter
environment, is not working in their favour either. And because,
when they are difficult to handle, they get even less of it.
In the shelter, we are doing our best to give reactive dogs a head
start to improve their chances of adoption, but in the end
a successful adoption of a reactive dog relies on the new owner to
continue that work. After all, those dogs are in this position
because their previous owners were not doing that Every dog can

Digby was so handsome. He had bat ears, extraordinarily long,
grey and warm, like a donkey’s. One up and one down. He loved
being stroked on his head, over his pterodactyl eye bumps. His
nose was long and elegant. His eyes were kohl rimmed, dark
and calm, and his gaze level. He had the softest coat, with
spots that showed when his fur was short. A former show judge
thought him mostly wire-haired terrier. “He’s a working dog”,
she said fondly, “I bet he likes chasing things”. Did he what!
He’d flog the light rail. He delighted in drones. He chased one
filming a wedding and Moo followed him and peed on the bride’s
dress. He’d see kite surfers from the van, and be off like a
streak, swimming out to encourage them if they crashed.
Digs was a team player and loved being part of a group. He’d
play both sides of a tennis match, racing between players,
barking commentary. Too small to pick up a football, he’d
dribble it back with his nose. He greeted everyone with a toy.
He sat on everyone’s knee, moving his lower jaw like he was
laughing. He’d resourcefully push his head under your hand
and shove it up and down for auto-pats.
