Hi there, my name is Buster!

I am a spritely, highly intelligent and handsome young man with a huge amount of energy to burn - I am a GSP after all!

I would love to go to a home where my new carers will take me on long daily walks, provide me with lots of enrichment to keep my mind busy and take me to obedience training so I can brush up on my doggy manners.

It's important that I be rehomed with an existing dog. I get along brilliantly with them and they will be able to show me the ropes. I settle well after play dates and I'm very good on lead.

I need to go to a home where my humans will let me inside and are home more often than not. I can get a little worried when I am left by myself.

A home with high and secure fences is also a definite must for me.

I am currently in a foster home as I do not cope well in the shelter environment. If you are interested in meeting me, please call the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240 to discuss my needs and set up a time to meet with 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
