Rescue Dogs - The sad stories

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

-- Unknown


Below are the rescue dogs, that for various different reasons we were unable to rehome.  

These are the sad story's of rescue.  This is our Tribute to them.



Victoria was found wandering in Wamboin, a semi-rural area just outside Canberra on Wednesday, 25th June 2003.  She was taken by the local Rangers to the Queanbeyan City Council Pound.  The Rangers then contacted us to get our opinion on whether she was rehomable.  We visited her on Friday, and after seeing the condition she was in, came to the conclusion, in consultation with the Queanbeyan City Rangers, that she was not rehomable.  We then started looking for her owners, but unfortunately were unable to find them.  On Wednesday, 2nd July 2003, Victoria was released into our care.  We took her home, bath her, and gave her some TLC before taking her to our Vet who euthanised her. She is buried out on the farm, in the orchard, next to Victor.
