Well hi there, my name is Timmy.

I am a sweet little man with lots of energy to burn. I am not really one of those little dogs that likes to be picked up and cuddled all the time, I like my four feet on the ground thanks very much. I do like my own space however I will come to you for cuddles and will lay down next to you for a nap. A quieter home with no other animals would be best for me!

My favourite pastime is going for leisurely walks so I can frolick and roll around in the grass!

I can be a little fussy when it comes to my food, only the best for me!

I will need to go to a home where I have a firm and confident handler that is able to provide ongoing obedience training with a qualified trainer and work on my dog to dog socialisation.

I will also be adopted out with a disclaimer as I can at times have mild skin allergies, this will need to be monitored and treated in the future if needed.

If you think I sound perfect for you, please call the Adoption Hub for more information.

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
