Hola! My name is Rosie.

I found myself at Lort Smith after being transferred from another shelter to improve my chances of finding a new home.

Whilst here, the vets noticed that I had a bit of itchy skin. I've had a course of antibiotics and my skin has cleared up nicely.

I'm very friendly and sociable with other dogs, I love to play. My ideal home would be one where I can spend a lot of time indoors with the family, I need to be mindful of spending too much time in the sun as my fair complexion will burn very easily.

I can be a little bit needy, so ideally a family who is home a fair bit to spend time with me would be great please. I love going for walks, playing with toys and most of all spending time getting cuddles from my human friends.

I know some basic manners but I am keen to learn some more tricks so would love for my new family to commit to training with me please.

If you're looking for a cuddly little pocket rocket, please consider making a time to meet with me!

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
