Temporary Docklanders

Portia and Rowan are short-term citizens of Docklands.

Docklands residents Adelheid and Budi Sutanto fostered the daschund pair after their owner fell ill and was hospitalised.

Adelheid stumbled upon the dogs online and couldn’t resist when she learnt they needed a home.

She picked up the dogs from a Beaconsfield kennel in February and will take care of them until their owner is well again or the dogs are adopted.

Her own dog Schnitzel recently passed away, so 12-year-old Portia and 15-year-old Rowan are welcome additions.

Adelheid said Portia and Rowan were enjoying exploring their new short-term home.

“But at first they kept bumping into every glass door,” Adelheid laughed.

Adelheid and Budi will themselves be moving on from Docklands shortly too.

The pair have lived in Docklands for over a decade after moving into their apartment in NewQuay in 2002.

A change is now on the cards and they soon move to the Mornington Peninsula.
