Hello there, my name is Bear!

I'm a handsome, cuddly, older boy looking for a new home.

My ideal home would include lots of cuddles, long walks on the beach and plenty of delicious treats. That's not too much to ask for is it?

I'm a very people focused boy so it would be great if my family was home quite a lot as I do get a bit worried when I'm left alone for long periods of time. I'd be the perfect companion to cuddle on the couch with and catch up on the latest episodes of your favourite television shows!

The company of other dogs isn't really a big deal for me, I'm pretty happy to keep to myself and do my own thing. Did I mention I love being around humans?!

I can get a bit stressed around young children, so a home with teenagers and adults would be best please.

I really can't wait to start my new life with my forever family, so if you think I'm the one for you, please don't hesitate to make a time to meet me!

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
