Hello there my name is Rubble.

I am a happy energetic three-year-old Beagle looking for a family to call my own. 

I love to go for walks and play ball. I have been told that I can get a little too excited when I meet new dogs, so someone who is willing to do some training with me would be beneficial for everybody!

Beagles are known to follow their noses so I'll need a secure yard and plenty of exercise. I love human company so I would be best suited to someone who is home a lot.

Unfortunately I have not had the chance to be around other smaller animals so little furry friends may not be my ideal companion. I get easily excited so it's best if I do not go to a home with children - I would hate to accidentally hurt anyone!

If you think we sound like a good match, please come and visit me at the Lort Smith Adoption Hub.

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
