Chelsesa - Adopt Me!






Django

DOB - MAY 2010 | Male | Mastiff

Django is a beautiful big teddy bear looking for a loving home where he can be an inside companion. It is likely that he has had a rough start in life as he does not trust easily, you must take time to get to know him and once you gain his trust he is soooo affectionate! He cuddles right into you and loves a good ear scratch but he does also think he is a lapdog so he will need training to teach him the house rules. Django is a big strong boy so his new owners must also be physically capable of taking him on daily walks. He is an awesome dog and once you gain his trust you will have a friend for life. 

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: No children.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Recommended for an only animal home. Cannot be re-homed with a cat.

Django has been with the Home now on and off for many months and has become more dog reactive as a result. This may be worked on over time. He also has some quirks around resource guarding and needs a home where everyone involved in his training is consistent. Can be fostered pending adoption.

Angus - In Foster

DOB - SEPT 2014 | Male | American Staffy X

Angus is a handsome young boy and like a big puppy he is still learning some manners. He has had a rough start to life and would love to find a family that keeps him safe. He is very intelligent and quick to learn. Angus enjoys playing fetch and tug and would require at least 2 x 30 minute sessions of moderate exercise and daily enrichment activities, Kongs and chew toys etc. Angus can be mouthy and jumpy so will need someone to be firm but fair and continue his training and build his confidence. He is well behaved when he has calmed down and is easily redirected if he gets over-excited. He would suit an only dog home and be suitable with teenage children and full- or part-time workers, as he doesn't mind being left alone and is happy and excited when you return. 

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx. 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with children 13+.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Chelsea - In Foster

DOB - AUG 2007 | Female | Alaskan Malamute

Chelsea is looking for a loving home where she can retire in peace and enjoy her golden years. She is still quite a spunky lady that loves to go for a walk however was never taught how to walk politely on lead so does tend to pull. She enjoys having a garden to just stroll around and so she can sniff everything possible, she loves it so much that she would barely notice you there with her however in the home that is a different story as she is very affectionate! Chelsea also enjoys chasing a ball which you will get great entertainment out of as she is so uncoordinated. Just like us, she is looking for a companion to call her own.

MY ENERGY LEVEL: I will require approx. 2 x 30 minute walks daily.

MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I could live with children 13+.

MY SUITABILITY TO CATS & DOGS: Possible pending meet.

Harry - In Foster

DOB - JAN 2015 | Male | Staffy x Shar Pei

Hey there, I am Harry. I am very weary and cautious of new things and noises. I don`t trust everyone immediately so you will have to be patient with me and please let me come to you. When I feel more confident I will show you my affection by putting my paws on your lap so I can accept cuddles. I am not loving being here in the kennel and would much rather a home of my own where I can come out of my shell. I can guarantee you that I will be my new owner's best friend in time and will follow you wherever you go. Can you please give me a chance?

Part time workers only so he has someone with him when settling in, he should be provided with mental enrichment such as kongs and treat dispensing toys.

In time and with the right people Rollie is sure to make a super loyal member of the home.
