Hi everyone, my name is Millie
I absolutely love to play with my human companions and have a good run around. I am a beagle so I’m naturally full of energy!
My adopter will need to commit to taking me to dog training so I can continue working on my manners. I can be quite boisterous and have a bit of trouble containing my excitement, so training will certainly help me with this.
I would be so happy if my adopter was active and took me on lots of walks. I need mental stimulation so lots of enrichment toys and puzzles are a must!
For now it’s best that I be the only pet of the household – at least until my manners are tip-top. I very much want to be allowed inside and considered another member of the family.
Someone who has had experience with beagles would be best suited to me. If you think we would make a good team please contact the Adoption Hub.
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
