Pleased to meet you, my name is Remy.

I took a road trip from another animal welfare organisation to get to Lort Smith so that I could increase my chances of finding my perfect family!

I'm seeking a strong, confident, experienced handler who will commit to obedience training and socialisation with me. I need to brush up on my manners with other dogs. I'm a bit rude and need a lot of guidance about how to appropriately interact - most dogs don't appreciate my overt enthusiasm!

My ideal home would be one with no cats or small animals, I have very high prey drive, which isn't uncommon for my breed. Also, a home with no young children would be best. I do like my space to run around in, so a large backyard with high fences is a must!

The staff like to call me the perfect 'project dog', I'm very intelligent and keen to learn, I just need to find a family who will use this to their advantage and commit to training with me. Getting out and about on adventures in the park and checking out the neighbourhood is one of my favourite pastimes.

If I sound like I may be suitable, please call the Adoption Hub - 9321 7240.

  • Allowed outdoors


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
