Hi there, my name is Sunny!

As my name suggests, I am a happy dog with a bright personality and I'm looking for a new home! I was surrendered to Lort Smith as my previous carer wasn't able to provide the time and care I required.

I am a super playful dog and get along with other canines very well as I previously lived with another dog! I would be glad to find a new home with a dog, or as long as my new family is home a lot to play with me and keep me company I would be happy!

I require daily walking and must be an inside/outside dog as I am very affectionate and love to be around people! I have never been around cats before however I do get excited around small animals so keep this in mind.

I am fine around children as have been exposed to them before and although I can be a little jumpy, with some obedience training I think I would make the perfect family dog!

If you are interested in meeting me, please call the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240.

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
