  • Pet of the Week

    by Alison, 5 months ago
    Lexi pet of the week %283%29

    Hi there I am the beautiful Lexi,

    I was adopted from the shelter and returned due to not getting along with cats so I am in search for my forever home... without cats.

    I am the most gorgeous natured, gentle and super affectionate girl who is very people orientated. I love nothing more than snuggles and climbing into your lap, I’m not too big for a lap dog right?

    I can be a little nervous at first when in new environments and around new people but I adapt quickly and will soon be your constant little shadow. I can sit...

    Hi there I am the beautiful Lexi,

    I was adopted from the shelter and returned due to not getting along with cats so I am in search for my forever home... without cats.

    I am the most gorgeous natured, gentle and super affectionate girl who is very people orientated. I love nothing more than snuggles and climbing into your lap, I’m not too big for a lap dog right?

    I can be a little nervous at first when in new environments and around new people but I adapt quickly and will soon be your constant little shadow. I can sit on command and have been told that I am very attentive and responsive to my name when called.

    I am very food motivated.

    I am housetrained and use to be being allowed inside.

    Being a young girl I will require daily walks and playtime, I am also great walking in a harness.

    I love other dogs so if you have another dog at home you must bring them in to meet me to ensure we will be the best of friends.

    I really am the perfect girl and will adapt to any lifestyle or family.





    Last week's Pet of the Week is Flower


    Hi, my name is Flower. I am 2 years old and a Kelpie x Labrador.

    I was brought into the shelter when I got lost and unfortunately, no one came looking for me so I am now in search for my forever home.

    I am as sweet and as sweet can be, full of life and plenty of love to share, I am an energetic girl who requires daily walks and enrichment.

    I love the company of my owner more than anything in the world so I need a family that will include me in daily activities to keep me happy.

    I am a bit unsure when first meeting new dogs but once I get use to them I become quite playful so if you have a canine friend for me at home you must bring them in to meet me to ensure we will be the best of friends.

    I am a very clever girl and already know how to sit but I would love some more training to better my manners.

    If I sound like the girl for you please come out to meet me, I'll be waiting. Please contact the Shelter.

    Chloe

    In this section we share some of our success stories.

    Chloe the Cavalier Cocker Spaniel

    Chloe was found at East Nowra weighing only 4kg and she had just had another litter of pups. It is believed she came from a caged puppy farm. She was in poor health, very frightened and missing her babies. The rangers took her to the pound and she went straight to the vet hospital. A lovely couple fell in love with her and took her on. She is still extremely timid and weary of strangers but is on medication and up to 8.1kg. She now...
