Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Bleu

I am looking for a home where I am allowed inside and considered a member of the family. Someone home more often than not would be best for me as I love affection and attention.

I am unsure of other dogs as I haven’t had much exposure to them. I am also tempted to chase smaller animals so for these reasons, it’s best that I am the only pet of the household please.

An adopter that is willing to work on my doggy socialisation would be wonderful as I’d love to make some canine friends. Slow introductions to calm dogs would be needed.

If you live an active lifestyle and are able to give me daily walks and enrichment, while continuing with my training, I’m the dog for you!

Please give the Adoption Hub a call to come and meet me.

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.

  • 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.

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
