Hi there, my name is Bandit!

I am a very active young man looking for a home to call my own. I found myself at Lort Smith, when my previous carers could not provide me with the time and enrichment I need.

Despite my handsome looks, I am a working breed dog who will need plenty of mental stimulation. I still have a lot to learn about the world and would appreciate obedience training and ongoing socialisation so I can learn to be the best dog for my humans.

I have previously lived with cats and I am also great with other dogs, so I am happy to have other fur companions around.

I would love an active family who can keep me busy. If you would like to organise a meet and greet with me, please give the Adoption Hub a call on 9321 7240.

  • Suits children 7 plus
  • Suits teenager
  • Allowed outdoors
  • Good with other dogs


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
