Hi everyone, my name is Zee Zee

I am an affectionate young lady, who is looking for her forever home.

While at Lort Smith, staff noticed a few lumps and bumps. These have since been removed and while some were benign, there were some that may pose a problem in the future. For this reason I will need to have regular vet checks and my adopters will need to give me lots of pats to check for any new lumps. I am a tripod since I was very young so I am content with shorter gentle walks.

I need an adult only home with no other pets as I can play a little too rough when I get excited. I would also love to go to a home where my adopter will be home more often than not as I get lonely when left alone for long periods.

To be the best dog I can be, I could do with some help to build my confidence around other dogs and new environments.

If you’re looking for an oversized, affectionate lapdog, I am your girl! Please contact the Adoption Hub for more info.


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
