Wilbur's boot camp has been going great. With just a bit of guidance he has been such a settled, happy dog.
He is so very, very smart, as poodles are, which is how we feel he learned to call the shots previously. Having a tantie may have got him what he wanted then, but he's smart enough to know, with someone experienced, he won't get his way if he doesn't behave, and so, he does! He's an Angel!
Wilbur is such a happy, loving mini poodle boy. He adores his people, likes a play, a walk and other dogs.
If you're good with training and would love a totally devoted little companion to join your family, we'd love to hear from you.
Wilbur you will be in your own home ,sooner then you think,because you are the cutest,and there is someone watching and waiting to snap you up!love you darling 💗💗💗💗💗
Too big Cath Livingston?
As a poodle owner for at least 20years I know this guy witll be a treasure in the right home! There are very intelligent dogs. The poodle is number two on this list. Border Collies number one! A poodle will make you smile every day! I am in Perth so I can't. Just wanted to share what I know about poodles.
Poodles make such great pets they love their humans ♥️

Absolutely beautiful little fur baby 🐕🐕🌷🌷♥️🐾🐾🐶🐶🐶
Love Poodles, my favourite breed. They don't shed hair or have a doggy odour either, so are perfect indoor companions... ❤❤❤
I adore mini poodles (in fact all dogs) They are the best companions. They are right beside you every step of the way.
Very very dedicated to their owners
Wilbur you are such a gorgeous boy I'm sure you will find the perfect home for you soon xxx
god love him ❤️
God Bless him
Praying for blessings
HE IS SO CUTE . I THINK SOMEONE WILL GIVE YOU A LOVING HOME , AND WHEN THEY DO YOU WILL FEEL LOVED AND WILL LEARN TO BE A EXCELENT BOY .
Love poodles xxx
Could I make a humble request...when you list dogs for adoption could you include their age - please?
Buffy's had a groom. Isn't she utterly, utterly speciall! Foster mum Jo was asked by a family member if it would be possible for Buffy to visit her mum, who's now in a nursing home after suffering 2 strokes. It's such a sad situation when people are separated from their pets and it would have been devastating for her to have to say goodbye to Buffy. They feel it would make her very happy, and so Jo is going to take her in for a visit tomorrow. Hopefully it will brighten everyone's day. ...
When I met little Otto in the pound, dogs were barking, but he was curled up, silent, not a peep. He saw us stop at his cage and open the door. Out toddled this darling, sad, fluffy little wombat, with his little chunky barrel body. His back legs were not right, flipping at the ankles and skipping when he walked faster. His little curly squirrel tail is bald, as well as a patch on his back and ear, we’re checking for anything underlying. His nose snuffly and his eyes gunky.
On the way to the vet, in the car all he wanted to do was climb over to me, clipped in firmly he couldn’t, but he tried desperately, he just wanted comfort.
I talked to him and made my promise to make him happy, I patted him for a while, he looked into my eyes while I talked to him. I think he understood.
He was such a good boy at the vet, he allowed everything, the check-up, the vaccination, the poking prodding, pulling at legs, and during it all he tried to push his head into me, or climb up onto my shoulder from the vet table, again, just looking for comfort. We were graced, during the consult, a couple of times, with a little face “spritzing” from Otto’s sneezes, and I’m not talking the sweet-smelling floral style.
Aunty Kae met us at the vet with the clippers and scissors, otherwise, going into surgery today, we knew it would be a while before we could get him groomed. He patiently allowed everything, the bath, the clipping and scissoring, the drying. He is a calm and gentle little man, again pushing his body into me for comfort whenever he could. Afterward he had a little toddle a nice bowl of food.
He’s on antibiotics for his sniffles (which aren’t unusual coming from the pound). He’s had bloods done, which will help us assess if his skin and hair loss is caused by something underlying, and to check all his levels. If all are ok, for surgery, he will be desexed and have a little lump removed from his eyelid that’s touching his eye, and his legs will be checked out properly.
We wait today for the vet call and hope all is well. As often happens, when we pick up a little one, we know nothing about them, their health, why they were left behind, what we may be facing. Sometimes we get good surprises, like we did when vet Lori said, “his heart’s good – no murmur” we look at each other with raised eyebrows – that’s a win. She also said, “teeth good” – we look at each other in shock, that one’s very unusual for us. Let’s hope the phone call today brings us more good news xx ...

So, a little update on where we’re at with Wilbur.
He’s been having a little ‘live in’ session with our very good friends at Canine Lifeline, learning how to ‘dog’ and deal with his anxious outbursts. While he’s been there and being given direction, Wilbur has been such a good boy….. butter seriously wouldn’t melt in his mouth now that he knows what’s expected of him, but without clear guidelines and rules Wilbur was previously going into serious meltdown mode. He was unsure what to do with his anxiety at times, in new places, at vets, seeing new dogs and his reactions were totally OTT.
Like all dogs he needs love, but he can’t ever feel like he calls the shots and when he knows you’ve got things under control, he is so much more settled. In his training, at first, he was quite shocked at being made do things. We think he’s been so used to never being challenged or pulled up for bad behaviour, but now he understands the rules he is just doing so well. He’s happy being with other dogs and cats, likes to chase toys…..but he doesn’t bring them back 😂, and is a very sweet and loving boy. Being a poodle he is oh so clever. He will likely still need some guidance especially at first, with his new owner, in new situations.
And so, we have slightly changed our focus on the home that Wilbur needs, looking more for an experienced home that understands good guidelines and knowledgeable in training good behaviour. We will organise handover training sessions to make Wilbur’s transition easier and to make sure his constant handling has him continuing to behave like the good boy he is.
If you think you’re just the right person to continue to bring out the very best in Wilbur, we’d really love to hear from you, please fill in an application form www.rescuedwithlove.org/adopt/
If you've already applied and have not told us about your training experience in your application, please send us an email detailing your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org ...
Nicci just had her 6 week check up with Dr Julian after her first patella surgery. Nicci's first leg was bad! Her second one, that's booked in to be done soon, is 'really' bad. The plan was to work on the slightly better leg for her first, so it was nice and stable and strong for when she has her second surgery, as we expect to make her other leg a lot better, but she may not bounce back as fast on that one. Nicci is basically blind, she has one eye remaining that may just be able to detect light and shade but not much else, but she's got everything mapped out. She's such a smart little girl and is incredibly now doing Zoomies with the pack!!! Which just squeezes my heart a little. When she arrived she was such a sad, skinny little shut down girl. This utterly beautiful little girl has a personality to die for. I cannot tell you how much we love her xx ...
For the past 7 years RWL have run Project Angel in conjunction with St. Mary’s House of Welcome, who feed and care for people who are homeless or living in poverty. Project Angel started when a supporter told us about Leah and her little dog Angel, who had been homeless. Leah is sadly no longer with us. From this encounter, we began assisting St. Mary’s in feeding the dogs of clients – by collecting bagging and packaging food donated by the public to be stored by and distributed by them. At the time we were filling a void in the community and have helped many care for their little friends, who have desperately needed it.
St. Mary’s have let us know that currently, they simply don’t have the capacity in their storage space and so we won't be going ahead with Project Angel as we usually do at this time of the year.
Over the years we’ve witnessed other organisations growing and filling the need in the community with dedicated services aimed solely at providing support for the animals of those that are needing help, so we do hope you get behind these organisations. For anyone who has been collecting in anticipation of Project Angel this year, you can still help:
- Pets Of The Homeless Australia provides food, veterinary care and other support to pet owners in need, those that are at risk of or are currently experiencing homelessness. Their dog food bank is open for donations every Saturday from 10am-1pm at 84A Keys Rd, Cheltenham VIC 3197 Food must be unopened and unexpired. www.petsofthehomeless.org.au
- Your local shelters or rescue groups, I’m sure will be only too happy for donations of food. (we don’t need donations ourselves but many others do).
We would like to say a big thank you to all who have supported, donated, collected, and helped out the massive task of bagging, and a special thank you to Jane, Lee and Trish who have dedicated huge amounts of time co-ordinating and opening your homes for us to use over the years. ...
It's afternoon nap time for Wally (front) and his little friend Honey. We are looking for a very special home for Wally. It's easy to say "older dogs are the best" but when it comes to actually adopting an older dog, with special needs, it takes a very special person. We know you're out there, it's just a matter of finding you. Wally is blind (he can see some light and dark) but that's all and has limited vision but once he knows his way around he adjust really well. He'll needs eyedrops ongoing, but most importantly, Wally needs company. When he has company, Wally is the happiest, joyful, most comical and adorable little man. A real heart stealer. He doesn't cope well on his own, so needs someone home most of the time and at least a doggy friend for company if you are out.

I love you Wally. I would adopt you in a heartbeat beautiful one. But I already have two in a small apartment :( :( :( The family that gets you are going to be the luckiest people in the whole world.
Wally sounds exactly like my boy Bailey with his medical needs and needing someone aor another dog around. Hope you find your perfect home soon Wally.

Lovely dogs xxxxx good luck
Best wishes Wally
I wish he could be adopted interstate
Gorgeous wally. You look just like my jack who passed to the rainbow bridge
2.1/2 years ago.
I wish I could. Asked my landlord awhile ago and he said NO. Will pass in though. Good luck little man, you are gorgeous 💋💜💚💙
I hope someone will love you soon ❤️❤️❤️
He is so cute and also honey
Oh he is just beautiful. Please someone give him a loving home. Don't be put off by his blindness. I adopted my Dora last year, a blind Spoodle & I'm so grateful everyday that we found one another,
I have a blind dog..he is amazing I put perfume on every day if we go outside ..he always know's I'm there 💜
Older dogs are very special .Good Luck sweetheart ❤️My Pedro who is 15 is blind but gets around very well
Oh Wally you are just scrumptious 💕 I already have 3 , so hope someone out there can give you a home. You deserve the best.
My heart just started hurting when I read about Wally‘s predicament. I couldn’t help wishing to be that person looking after him and cuddling him whilst also keeping him company. If only though, I’m living in NZ and have two doggies already. I hope so much that someone will come forward soon to take him on and love and care for him. 💙♥️🐶
Oh if I didn't already have 3 furbabies I would apply for you in a heartbeat little man 😍
Let’s hope there is someone out there for him soon
He is a sweetheart, he looks like my Angel, the same facial markings. I love him

Little Kermit joined his new family today. It's not only a perfect home but he will have a special little role to play in healing some hearts. Lynn and Gary devote their lives to their animals and put their hands up to be there for little oldies that need them the most. They have taken two little blind ones from us before and we know how utterly perfectly they care for these little ones. This time though, they had a special request, they were looking for a little one that not only could they love and dote on (medical conditions didn't matter), but they hoped for a little one who would snuggle with Pearl, to give her the comfort she seeks and has been desperately missing since her sister Peggy passed away. So with the stars aligned, we feel little Kermie the snuggler, found his way to us for a reason. To find his way to their home, where he was meant to be. ...
Wally is without doubt a snuggle monster. He wants to sit with you and steal cuddles whenever and wherever he can. In fact, if he could sit with you 24/7 he probably would. He will steal your heart and anyone else’s who crosses his path.
Wally has a comical little nature and will keep you smiling all day long, he’ll show you his belly for tummy rubs.
Wally has limited hearing and vision and will require lifelong eye drops but he adjusts amazingly to his environment once familiar.
Wally gets unsettled and worried when there is no-one around, he manages better when he at least has a doggy friend/s but he’s really looking for a home where there’s someone home for him most of the time. Someone retired or who works from home would be ideal with a little doggy friend or friends. Wally just wants to be with people, so that’s the kind of home we’ll find for him 😊
He really is a compact bundle of joy. Super sweet and will make you smile every day.

He has a grade 1 heart murmur, but no medication is required at this stage.
We will be following up with Melbourne Eye Vets on Monday to have a chat about his results, initial thoughts were no surgery at this stage, but we just want to be sure. Should he need anything done now, we’d still like to have a home lined up as soon as he’s ready.
