Hi everyone, my name is Luna

I am a friendly young lady looking for a family to call my own. I found myself at Lort Smith due to a medical condition. After months of treatment, this is now under control and I’m ready for adoption!

I have Lymphedema and Cellulitis, which can often result in swelling – primarily in my limbs. With a combination of supplements, massages, controlled exercise and acupuncture, my swelling is now under control. With the right management plan, these conditions don’t bother me much and I can live a relatively normal life.

I have been through a lot for such a young pup and its fair to say that my social skills and doggy manners could do with some attention. The good news is that I’m very food motivated so that helps with training.

I have been working on my handler focus as I can get a bit vocal and excited when I see other dogs on walks. I enjoy making new friends but this can be misinterpreted. Right now, a home with no other animals would be best.

I would love for my adopter to provide me with plenty of mental enrichment and ongoing training as I enjoy learning new skills.

Please complete an expression of interest form if you think we would make the perfect match!

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
