Pending

Hi everyone, my name is Lucky

Some of my favourite pastimes are playing tug-of-war, being brushed, going on walks and cuddling my human friends.

I am already pretty good at walking nicely on the lead (until I smell something I want to explore), engaging with my handler, and I can also sit, shake and drop!

My ideal home would be with a family that can take me on daily adventures. I will need one-on-one obedience training and continued socialisation work around other pooches as my manners are still a bit rusty. I am a very intelligent boy and will pick up training quickly.

I unfortunately will not be able to go to a home with small children, the elderly or other animals, it’s not that I do not love them, it’s because I am just a big goofy pup and do not want to unintentionally hurt anyone.

If you believe I may suit your lifestyle, please call the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240 for more information about me and to book in a meet and greet. I hope to see you soon!

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
