Hi there, I am the very handsome Teddie Cooper!

I found myself at Lort Smith when I accidentally broke my leg as a wee pup. I am now fully recovered and ready to find my forever home.

I am a very small pup looking for a home where I can enjoy being inside and being part of the family. I am good with other dogs and would be great as a family companion. I can be a bit vocal sometimes so I hope my new handlers will take me to training and ongoing socialisation so I become a well mannered little man.

I am very active and bouncy and I can assure you I will bring much joy to your life. Because of my luscious fur, I will also require regular grooming but most importantly I would love someone to cuddle with.

If I sound like the young man for you, please give the Adoption Hub a call to arrange a meet and greet with me - 9321 7240.

Compatibility

  • Suits children 7 plus

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
