DEXTER IS HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND WILL MAKE AN EXCELLENT PROTECTOR COMPANION. HE CAN BE DOG AGGRESSIVE (HOWEVER NOT WITH ALL DOGS) SO WE ARE IDEALLY LOOKING FOR AN ONLY DOG HOME.

Bobby & Widgett

Last updated on Monday, Sep 16 2013
Bobby and Widget are two super doggies that would like to have a home together Bobby is a mixed breed, with predominantly Shepherd genes - she is about 5 years old. Widgett is a Black Pitbull cross Chow. He is a real "puppy" and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body, and just loves biscuits and attention! He is about 3 years old. He is an affectionate, doting, attentive and charming lad, who is keen to please and relishes snuggling by your side as much as going for walks! He enjoys the company of female dogs he can interact with, but especially adores being around being around people and would be an unconditionally loyal companion. Bobby and Widget have become firm friends and they both have the sweetest, most gentle natures. They are used to children, and don't seem to worry about cats. We need to find them a loving home together. Strict home check applies. For adoption, please contact Vanessa on email benjaminv@mweb.co.za
Shadow

Last updated on Thursday, Apr 10 2014
She loves humans of all kinds and most other dogs. However I think she would do best with a house where she is the only dog and can be spoilt with attention. The people would have to be active and walk her regularly cause she can get quite destructive if she is not getting her excercise. She is extremely affectionate and anyone who meets will very quickly see why I say that. She will give many years of happiness, loyalty and love to the right family. I wish more than anything that family could be me but unfortunately circumstances don't dictate that. Its a very hard decision to have to make as it feels as if I am having to give up a child.
JUNO

Last updated on Friday, Jan 10 2014
Juno bug as he is fondly known at the centre is areal character. He doesn't suffer fools likely and will take his time getting to know you and checking you are an A ok peep :)But once you are chommies you have him for life. He didnt get along with his brother in his previous family and who cant relate to sibling rivalry so his family thought it was best for Juno to find a new forever home where he can be safe and happy. That home didnt come along so the handsome lil fella came to join the DogtownSA family. He's had a few roomies since coming to stay here and enjoys the company of a well mannered lady friend. He's kind of old school he likes to think the mans job is to take care of his lady and doesnt really enjoy the company of a head strong go getter kind of lady. His current lady friend Jasmine is all too happy for Juno to run the roost, she enjoys kicking back on the couch and enjoying the South African sun.
Roxy

Last updated on Tuesday, Mar 04 2014
Roxy needs to urgently find a new loving home. She is a gorgeous 2 year old female staffie x. She is good with other dogs but is food aggressive/guarding so should be fed separately from the other dogs. We do believe that this could probably be overcome with disciplined feeding times, etc. She is apparently fine with small children (they have a 4 year old) and people in general. Very loving and loves attention. She will need an understanding home - a family who will be patient with her. She has not yet been spayed or micro-chipped and inoculations are not up to date (this can be done immediately if home is found). Has not had any formal training. Roxy will require a home where she will get regular exercise and attention. She is currently in a home where she is getting none of this and as a result is acting out. She needs a home with someone who will be able to walk her and exercise her and train her and give her the physical and mental stimulation she obviously craves. Please contact me if you can help, my cell number is 0827749365 or contact network@barkingmad.co.za
MISHKA

Last updated on Wednesday, Aug 28 2013
Mishka says she loves nothing more then to be made a fuss of and enjoys a good cuddle, especially before bedtime and will always return your love with a great doggy smile and lots of kisses.After all she knows this is a two way relationship. She had a loving family once, but they fell on hard times and found herself here at the centre wondering when her forever family would come along.She loves to walk in open spaces, when she was younger she would love to tear around without a care in the world, but due to a sports injury she has to take thing a little slower now, but where she lacks speed she sure does make up in affection. * Unable to adopt Mishka? Then please show your love and support by SMS’ing DOG to 38919. Your donation will go towards caring for the dogs of Barking Mad’s DogtownSA. SMS costs R10, SA networks only.
YOGI
8 of 10
Last updated on Wednesday, Jul 31 2013
Yogi was adopted as a puppy, but sadly returned as her owners could no longer keep her. She is a charismatic, fun-loving, athletic and playful girl, who is entertaining, alert and keen to please. Yogi can be bit unsure of strangers at first, but her large, beautiful eyes will melt your heart! She enjoys the companionship of other dogs she can interact and play with, but unfortunately, she’s not sold on the whole feline idea – so a home without cats would be ideal. Yogi is housetrained and would be a comical companion and spirited addition to a loving family.

Mamma Tracy at the centre always sings allie ballie bee to me, she seems to enjoy it and while she's singing she gives me cuddles and love, so I kinda love this song now to. I once had a home but there was some sibling rivalry involved :( and I found myself looking for a family once again :( You could say Im a bit of a strong minded lady, I like things done my way and I like them done right. I dont suffer fools gladly so this may be the reason why I am still waiting for my forever home. Not everyone appreciates my brains. I love exercise and I am super clever, Im looking for that family that will appreciate just how intelligent I am and will love and sing to me to. If I was an actress Id be on the big bang theory as Sheldons twin hee hee

URGENT APPEAL - PAWS R US Foster Home Appeal

URGENT APPEAL FOR FOSTER HOMES in GAUTENG!

Paws R Us

 

We have a few new furry orphans coming our way over the next 2 weeks. For various reasons, we have made a decision NOT to use kennels any longer, but to only use loving foster homes. To enable us to continue our rescue work and to offer furry orphans a space of shelter, safety, love and care, we must have a pool of foster homes available.

 

We therefore ask all animal lovers to consider opening their homes and their hearts to a little spirit who only has love to give.

Foster homes are so important – they are the BRIDGE BETWEEN RESCUE AND REHOMING…

Foster homes are where orphans again experience love, and learn to trust again. Foster homes are where orphans learn to socialise with other dogs and to get used to cats. Foster homes are where orphans learn what walks are, and how much fun playing ball can be. Foster homes are where orphans remember again how it feels to have gentle hands stroke them to sleep, and to know that when they awake, they will be protected and loved.

 

If you are interested in finding out more about fostering a rescue dog in need, please email us on pawsrus@gmail.co.za

PLEASE HELP US TO HELP THEM.

We would appreciate it if you would circulate this post so that it can travel far and wide :-)

 

With our gratitude,

PAWS R US

BARKING NEWS - You live, you learn- Shadow’s Tail
Last updated on Wednesday, Jul 17 2013
You live, you learn- Shadow’s Tail
By Karishma  

Talent is a curious creature; it creeps up when you least expect and leaves you utterly gobsmacked when you encounter it. Shadow bounded into our lives at DogtownSA a bewildered emaciated dog. He was a manic concoction of energy and uncertainty.  I would scarcely have guessed that beneath his frenetic veneer, lived an insatiable eagerness to learn and the potential to be canine champion. At DogtownSA we aspire to help all our dogs reach their full potential, and for Shadow this is going to be an interesting journey.

All our furries at DogtownSA are amazing. It is a blessing to share their love and watch them learn and grow into the happy dogs they deserve to be. What makes Shadow so special is his ability to focus and learn new skills. He lives to please, and is always begging for new opportunities to learn and excel. You couldn’t wish for a better companion in the world of dog sports. At Shadow’s behest we have begun formal obedience and competition tracking training. Shadow has aspirations of being DogtownSA’s first qualified Working Trials Champion.

At his first tracking session, Shadow outshone his more experienced canine counter-parts. He was unperturbed by the wind swirling the scent or by the birds flying overhead; he put his nose to the ground and figured out his scent pads with ease. Few could believe that it was only his first attempt.

Shadow embodies our motto: ‘Rescues Rule’. It is just the beginning for this talented boy. Watch this space: the road of aspirant champions will be paved by many different challenges  
FUNDRAISING - Flight Fund - ongoing
Last updated on Monday, Aug 06 2012

W.A.R.R.F

WATERSHED ANIMAL RESCUE AND REHABILITATION
FUND

085-455-NPO

Dear Networkers

I regret to inform all of you that as of last Friday, 3 rd August,
our flight sponsorship from Comair was terminated.

There letter read “we are in the process of undergoing a
massive cost cutting initiative and regrettably we’re no longer
in the position to cover the freight cost for the animals.”

This came as a big shock to us as in the past few years this
flight sponsorship has saved so many animals lives.

I have asked Bidair for there flight cost estimations (which
I have attached). We will still be saving a bit of money as
we have crates and will be booking directly with Bidair and
not working through a Pet Carrier Service so the costs will be
lessened by about R500 – R800.

Watershed is starting a “flight fund” as well so that we can
help when we have funds for this, especially when the dogs
are flying from rescue centre to rescue centre and no adoption
fee is to be paid. If you would like to get people to donate to
the flight fund (even R50 a month will help build up the kitty)
then please let them have the fund banking details and please

reference it “flight fund”. If this fund “takes off” positively,
I will keep you all in the loop as to how much funds we have
in the kitty and if we can help with the next flight. I do think
though that if there is funds available, you STILL waiver your
adoption fee on your flight dogs, and then we can pay this
towards that flight plus “top it up” with the kitty money if it
is needed. In doing this, we can lessen the cost per flight and
thus be able to help with more. (hope this makes sense)

I am so terribly sorry for this. I will be emailing Comair this
week to see if they cant at least give us 2 – 3 free flights a
month or if they can maybe give us a discounted price on the
flight costs attached.

So please bear with me, and I will try my utmost to get
assistance.

Please see attached the flight cost estimates as well as
WATERSHED banking details. Please don’t forget to reference
it “flight fund”.

With regards

PET TIP
TTOUCH
 I adopted my little girl Stella from the spca a month ago. She has not been exposed to much and has been quite weary of all new things. This is primarily due to her not experiencing a wide variety of things during her early learning period.
Today she came with me to my tellington touch course and we have both had the honour of working with Linda Tellington Jones herself today aswell as all the wonderful t touch practioners in training. All I can say is that today my little girl experienced so much and for the first time I feel she is happy in her own body :) This is wonderful work and I encourage you all to experience it with your dog. Contact the t touch office and see when they are holding their next workshops or call one of the many caring and loving t touch practioners we are blessed to have here in our country. You can get a list of the T touch practioners in your area through the t touch office. Please visit their website and explore this wonderful work :)
www.ttouch.co.za
Tellington TTouch is a gentle method of bodywork and movement exercises that positively influences behavior, performance and well-being. It increases communication skills and deepens the relationship between animals and their people.  It is used in over 30 countries around the world to influence both behavioral and health problems.

Tellington TTouch was created by International Animal Expert Linda Tellington-Jonescircles, slides and lifts used to reduce stress and relax tension. It also incorporates body wraps and many leading & groundwork exercises for confidence building. You'll find more detailed info on our What is TTouch page. and includes TTouch bodywork which is a combination of

Eugénie Chopin, an American who has lived in South Africa since 1975, studied Tellington TTouch in the USA and brought it to South Africa several years ago. Hundreds of people here have experienced and found Tellington TTouch to be useful for both problems and the general well-being of their pets.

WE ARE IN SEARCH OF OUR VERY OWN PROPERTY AND WANT TO KNOW WHAT WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO VISIT AND SUPPORT US MORE?
