Well hi there, my name is Jagger!

I am a super handsome boy and I absolutely adore my human friends! I love spending time with the staff and volunteers at Lort Smith and they all say that I am the sweetest boy with the best cuddles!

I will need to go to a home with no small animals as a game of chase is just a little too tempting for me! I also need to remain on leash at all times when out walking.

A home where my new family will commit to taking me to behaviour training classes on a weekly basis, provide me with ongoing socialisation with other dogs, take me on daily walks or runs and a handler that is experienced, strong and confident handling canines, that would be the ideal home for me!

In my new home I would also love to be part of the family, this would mean sleeping inside and spending valuable time with my human companions.

If I sound like I could be a perfect match for you please call the Adoption Hub to find out more about me and to make a time for a meet and greet!

Compatibility

  • Suits children 7 plus
  • Suits teenager
  • Allowed outdoors
  • Good with other dogs

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL

Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
