Healthy female "dog" to breed with Parson Russell Terrier, to produce ASSISTANCE DOGS.   Rochedale South QLD 4123
I wish to breed from my Parson Russell Terrier. He is a trained assistance dog. He has a wonderful nature. The breed of his mate could be varied or a cross; eg Parson Russell Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Beagle, Bull Terrier, Bull mastiff, Staffy, and/or Fox Terrier plus many others. She does not need to be "pedigreed". I am very protective of my dogs. She will become very valuable to me and become one of my assistance "dogs". If we can assist each other, please contact me on my contact form, including your email address and your landline phone number so I can phone you to discuss. 

Because I am disabled and have an LLB [so therefore understand the Law surrounding disabilities and assistance dogs] I am now branching out to providing Assistance dogs to disabled persons [even if disabled in only a minor way and so not even realizing it]. This is not a business proposition but rather just a very necessary service I can offer to the community.
Many people have a disability and do not realize their ailment or "problem" is by law, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA], classified as a "disability". This is especially so for people getting on in years, and who have a dog, and are maybe moving to accommodation where they are told they cannot take their dog. In a majority of cases, those people cannot be legally forced to surrender their animal/dog.
I will be assisting those person who already have dogs, but are being forced, unlawfully, to dispose of them because maybe they are moving accommodation. I can train your existing dogs to be assistance dogs and provide the documentation as required by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA]. I do not intend to charge for this, but just maybe cover some marginal costs.

University of Melbourne -Are International students unwise to study at Australian Universities? a

Are International students unwise to study at Australian Universities?

To quote Megumi Ogawa in SMH: Ms Ogawa said outside the Federal Magistrate's Court on Friday 28th July, 2006, "[The] judge even says this decision is unjust. Every court considers it unjust, but every court will not do anything, so this is a strong message to international students, how dangerous it is to study in Australia."

International Students should be very cautious of studying in Australia.  As happened to Megumi Ogawa, if you think you will study in Australia, and if you have a dispute with the Australian University, the university, as did the University of Melbourne, can have you locked up at an immigration detention centre for over two months.   Do you want to risk that?  

The Melbourne newspaper "The Age" article on the 29th July, 2006 explains Megumi's case to that juncture very well.

As stated by the ABC am program on 29 July, 2006, "Ms Ogawa is suspicious that she was locked up on the 19th of May, days after a court agreed to hear a claim against the University."  It seemed as though the university and DIMIA [Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs] were working together as immediately after any directions hearing in the legal saga, [as the University tried to derail the legal action], DIMIA would send a letter.  I believe DIMIA and the University of Melbourne have done irreparable harm to Australia's prospects of attracting International Students to study in Australia.  According to ABC PM, on 27 June, 2006, Megumi stated that three days before DIMIA (Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs) had the Federal Police arrest her and incarcerate her [detain her at Villawood], the Federal Court ordered a trial date of her legal action against the University of Melbourne.   That detention was preparatory to having Megumi deported.  Only by applying for political asylum was Megumi able to avoid deportation.  Deportation would have meant that University of Melbourne prevailed.  Clearly they had tried this approach to "win".  Soon after Megumi's release from detention on a protection visa, University of Melbourne contacted a contact point for Megumi suggesting negotiation.  University of Melbourne is reputed  to be one of the better universities in Auatralia, so clearly, that has gone to the heads of the people at University of Melbourne, who think they can ride rough shod over students, especially international students.
Consider the case of Megumi Ogawa. She has a law degree from Waseda University and a Masters from the Yokohama National University.  Read these three articles from the media, SMH, ABC AM and ABC PM to see what you think.

I became aware of Megumi Ogawa's situation when I was informally consulted while in the Law Library of the University of Queensland when Megumi was initiating proceedings in the Federal Court as I was known to have had substantial experience of Federal Court proceedings.
