"Molly is the eternal licker. When she gets excited, her anxiety comes out and she licks EVERYTHING - you, your shoes, the floor, the furniture, the air . . . She's a bundle of energy, who just loves to love you.
Maisey is a quieter child (although she loves to jump on her rear legs and bare her teeth at you like a human grin when you get home). My girl are my children, they are my life and they bring me nothing but laughter and unconditional love every single day."
~Molly and Maisey’s Mum, Vaneise
"Wombat and Jackson might not be human, but they are definitely the start of our little family. Jackson was there when I needed him most - my reason to get up in the mornings.
When Wombat and Jackson sleep on my feet at night, not only are they awesome heat packs - they give me such a sense of security and love.
Having the boys has forced me to roll with the punches and become much more relaxed about the cleanliness of our house. I love the little pawprints on our floors, because I know how much love is here!
Our dogs mean unconditional love, laughter and just the right amount of madness - they mean more than the world to us!"
~Jackson and Wombat's Mum, Emily
"Summer was adopted first. She is my rock and the one I find it easiest to communicate with.
Molly was adopted with severe skin issues - now her fur is beautiful and white and thick! She is my princess - everybody loves Molly!
We fostered Tippy, but she fell so in love with Summer that she ended up staying for life. She is a racker and loves fun! She thinks she's a puppy, when really she's 10!
Calvin was completely broken and scared when he came to us from outback NSW. He was so frightened that tt took months just to get him on a leash, but you'd never guess that now! He's a cheeky boy who loves exploring and having fun.
My dogs are my furkids and I'd do anything for them. I've learned so much about helping other dogs and pets with their health, and that's now my passion!"
~ Mum of the Lennox Four, Sharyn
"Putney is the light of our lives, our first born baby! He is extremely loving and playful - a German shredder, shedder and shadow!
He has a beautiful calm, loving nature and has to say hello to every dog he meets.
He loves the beach, water, chasing balls and his human baby, Archie."
~Putney's Mum, Helen
"Rooey was a tradie's dog, who was left at home all the time while her human worked. When we adopted her she was shy and timid.
These days she's a confident lady who loves to play with dogs and isn't scared of people! She's our baby, centre of our world and we love her to bits!"
~ Rooey's Mum, Michelle
"We rescued Rudie when he was 9 months old. It took him a long time before he could fully trust Jordan and I, but he's come so far. His favourite things are doing zoomies around the backyard, barking through our window and stealing toys from his little sister, Ava.
Ava is a crazy ball of energy who is determined to get whatever she wants. She has lots of confidence and enjoys a cuddle when she gets sleepy. Ava's favourite things are stealing shoes, chasing the cat and playing with Rudie in the backyard.
My furbabies bring me so much happiness, I can't wait to get home to them every day! They are always there for a cuddle or a laugh."
~ Rudie and Ava's mum, Kristin
"Stella is the crazy, full of beans one. Olive is an easy going, Mumma's girl.
They both LOVE treats, snuggles on the lounge and going for walks. They live like queens :)
My girls are my entire world. They bring so much love and happiness to my life. I feel so incredibly lucky to have them!"
~ Stella and Olive's Mum, Camilla
"Taffy is a very happy, high energy dog who is known to jump the fence (or anything) if left alone outside. He was surrendered at least twice before I fostered him through Forever Friends Animal Rescue (and failed!)
These days, he's not nearly as anxious as he once was. He is much calmed and can be left alone at home. He loves his routine and coming to work with me to see all his doggy friends.
Taffy has made me so happy and I am so proud of how much he has grown and how confident he has become."
~Taffy's Mum, Holly
"Charlie is a big softy who lives for belly rubs and adventures. He's a bit timid, but he always has Chloe, his protector!
Chloe is a small, but energetic and playful girl. She loves to be anywhere that Kim is!"
~ Chloe and Charlie's people, Thierry and Kim
"Harvey is my furbaby and according to my family, I spoil him! I work from home, so we spend all of our time together (he even has his own seat in my office. He means the world to me.
He has such a personality and cheeky side. Even though he's a little white fluffy boy, he loves to go camping so that he can explore and get dirty!"
~Harvey's Mum, Stacey
