Hi everyone, my name is Bobby
*FOSTER TO ADOPT*
I am a very sweet and easy going pooch currently looking for a home to call my own. I have been to a few shelters but I know Lort Smith will find me the perfect family.
Currently I am on some medication to help with the adjustments and the many changes I have encountered recently. However I will need to be weaned of this medication once I have settled with my new family. This is why I will be a foster to adopt.
I am generally great with people but ideally looking for a quieter home where I can often nap under your feet. I also don’t mind having a fur sibling as long as they are also calm and respectful of my space. My ideal home is one where I am allowed indoors and part of the family and taken out for regular strolls. I enjoy good company and chit chats over a glass of treats.
If I sound like the boy for you, please give the Adoption Hub a call to arrange a meet and greet with 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
