Hi there, my name is Miller!

I am a smart cookie looking to find my forever family. I have been patiently waiting for my pawfect home for a while now, and I’m hoping I will meet my special someone very soon.

During my stay here at Lort Smith, I have learnt so many new skills including walking nicely on lead, all my basic commands and my manners around other dogs have vastly improved! I thrive on learning new things, and enjoy working out new puzzles, particularly anything involving food.

My ideal handler will be someone who can do training with me, specifically working on my dog-to-dog socialisation and someone who is around most of the time as I do get anxious when I’m left on my own.

I will need a home with no other animals but I can assure you I will bring so much joy to your life as I have many funny quirks to show you.

If you’re looking for a furry friend to play tug and fetch or one that will happily lay on the couch and cuddle with you, then I'm your guy! I would love to meet you - please give the Adoption Hub a call on 9321 7240 for more information.

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
