Well hi there. My name is Draco.

I am a big handsome goofball and I absolutely love to play with humans and dogs alike.

I am still young and working on my manners - I can be a little 'rude' when approaching other dogs and people. I just cannot contain my excitement! You see I have not really had much in the way of behaviour training and I really am in need of this to become a well behaved young man and not be so boisterous. I do know a few simple tricks like sit and drop but I need to build on these skills.

A home with no small animals would be best for me as I cannot resist the temptation to chase, it’s just a little too fun for me.

A home with older children would be ideal as I am just a little too jumpy for the younger crowd and may unintentionally knock them over.

Although I love dogs I may be a little too much for them so I think while I work on my manners I should be the only dog.

If you think you have time in your life for a young man like me, please call Lort Smith Adoption Hub to arrange a meet and greet.

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
