Well hi there, my name is George!

I am a sweet young boy, full of energy! For this reason I will need to go to a home where my new family are quite active.

As I am full of beans and love to go on adventures I will need someone that is willing to commit to taking me not only on daily walks but giving me lots of mental stimulation which could include new things to explore, puzzle toys and playing games with my human and canine friends, these are just some of the activities that I will need.

It would be best if I do not go to a home with small animals as I find it a little too tempting playing games of chasey.

I love human company so someone that will be home often would be amazing for me!

I will also need to work on my manners and some confidence building, I think an obedience school would be really great for me.

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you, please call the Adoption Hub to arrange a meet and greet with me.

Compatibility

  • Suits children 7 plus
  • Suits teenager

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
