Ducky, named after the sweet as pie Saurolophus from The Land Before Time movies, she 100% matches that same personality and is just so sweet! Ducky was the second smallest in the litter when she came into care and has more than doubled in size since!

Ducky is just the sweetest thing, always following her foster mum around making sure she knows exactly where she is at all times. Except food time, Ducky can’t miss out on food time! Ducky can be a bit shy to begin with but once she realises you supply endless scratches and cuddles she makes her self very comfortable on your lap.

Ducky isn’t as playful has her siblings but when she is, she is loads of fun to watch. Especially when chasing that little green lazer dot that randomly appears sometimes! Most of the time Ducky enjoys lazing around and having some cuddles on your lap.

Ducky has been well socialised with dogs both small and large, many people, birds, guinea pigs and has meet a few children from as young as 6 months up to 8 years and handles being picked up and them screaming very well.

Ducky would suit most households as she does adjust well to new surroundings and noises. Ducky would love to have a canine friend in her forever home. she has made a strong bond with her canine foster brother and just loves to play and cuddle with him every chance she gets. So a canine friend is a must and the bigger the better! Ducky also wouldn’t mind another feline friend as well.

Ducky is litter trained, desexed, microchipped and kept up to date with her vaccinations, flea and worming treatments.

If you think Ducky is the one for you then don’t hesitate to fill in an application form!

Rehabilitation Pens!

GAR was lucky enough to receive support from DEDJTR to build 4 rehabilitation pens.
These rehabilitation pens known as Project Bootcamp will House dogs that need additional training for correctable behavioural issues that go above the average training that foster carers alone can provide in their homes.
These pens will allow GAR to more effectively assess dogs that are coming in from pounds across Victoria in a safe and controlled environment to rehabilitate and re home safely into the community.
This will provide a viable alternative to euthanasia across council run pounds thereby increasing rehoming rates for animals who simply need someone to put in the time and care to help them be their best and safe selves.

GAR would like to thank DEDJTR for this amazing opportunity!
