Born:  19th December 2020
Sex:  Male
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About: The lovely Boden has quickly stolen the hearts of staff and volunteers alike.
He is going to be a dog that is fiercely loyal, a ride-or-die kind of lad who, once he trusts you, will absolutely delight in seeing you and follow you anywhere. With this, he is wary of new people and needs a family who will understand this and have patience.
He likes his own space from people he doesn’t know, and will take a while to warm up. He gets on well with other dogs, and can be found bounding around and being goofy with them from time to time, and loves playing tug-of-war.
While he may not warm up straight away, one only needs to see how Boden interacts with the staff and volunteers to see that once you have this guys trust, it is more than worth it.

Name: Marlon

Breed: Mastiff X
Born:  11th November 2018
Sex:  Male
Weight:  Approx 32kg
Adoption Fee:  $350.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About  Marlon is a super smart, active, people-person kinda guy – he longs to have a family to be with and call his own.
He shows affection to his carers and will flip on his back and wriggle next to you on the floor almost mimicking you if you lay down next to him… all he wants is love.
Marlon is also  very social and loves adventures and swimming. He also likes his quiet to me too but needs the right people to be around and keep him feeling part of the pack, even if it’s just laying next to you while you go about your day – he just needs someone.
He knows some basic commands such as sit, lay down and on your bed and knows to listen to his humans but he is also very smart and very good at problem solving. 
Marlon can get excited around other dogs but is learning to control his urges at Yaps, but he will need someone to spend time socialising him with other animals in the right setting.
