Well howdy, my name is Caesar.

I was surrendered to Lort Smith as my previous carers could no longer look after me. You see, I was a little silly and decided to eat something I shouldn't have and it left me with a very upset tummy. The lovely staff and volunteers here at Lort Smith have nursed me back to health and I am now ready to find my new home.

My ideal home would be with a strong and confident handler that is willing to put in the time and effort to work on improving my manners and take me to obedience training.

I am still getting used to new environments, people and other animals, so will need help from my new humans on building up my confidence. I can get a little worried and tend to bark and react to things I have not had much exposure to. I just need time to get used to the big wide outside world.

A home with no young children would be the best fit for me as I do not want to accidentally knock them over.

I do get along well with other known dogs in the shelter and can walk nicely with them. They actually help me with my confidence and I am less reactive when walking with them. If I were to be rehomed with another doggo, they would have to be confident, calm and know how to play appropriately. 

If you feel you may be able to provide me with what I need, please call the Adoption Hub to find out a little bit more about me and to book in a meet and greet.

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
