Well hello there, my name is Windy.

I was transfered to Lort Smith from another rescue quite recently, for this reason there is not too much known about my past.

They do however know that I can not be rehomed with any small animals as the thrill of the chase is all a bit too fun for me!

A home with no small children would be best for me, I would hate to accidently hurt them.

I will need a strong and confident handler that is willing to work on my obedience, confidence building, slow exposure to new environments and appropriate socialisation with other dogs. I get along well with other dogs and love to have a good old play.

I would also love to be able to be inside and part of the family, I just love human company.

If you think I sound like the right fit for your family, please call the Adoption Hub to find out more about me.

Currently Im available foster to adopt as I have a UTI. See staff for more details.

Compatibility

  • Suits children 7 plus
  • Suits teenager
  • Good with other dogs

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
