Dog adoption procedures

Once you have chosen a dog, your property will be checked to ensure that you have adequate fencing to contain your new pet and that shelter is available.  If you are in a rental property, written permission from your landlord is required before we do the property check.

The adoption fee for adult dogs is from $255 and puppies are from $280.  Prices may vary.  This includes the de-sex, vaccination, microchip and treatment for fleas and worms.

On top of this cost you are also required to register the dog at your local council.

Age: Approx 4

Breed: Mastiff x

Sex: Neutered Male

About me: I'm a big soft teddy bear just longing for a space on your sofa! I was underweight when I came in so I've been on foster gaining weight and am much improved! I am a sweet and very affectionate dog who desperately deserves some attention and a warm, loving home. I am a big strong dog, but I am sensitive and listen when I'm told to wait while walking on the lead, and I'm only going to get better with constant commands and routines.
