***RWD Foster Dog***
Introducing Shrek, this 10 year old retired hunting dog is a real gentleman.
If you’re looking for a companion dog, then he ticks all the boxes!
He really is a dream dog, easy and well mannered.
✅ affectionate, with a real personality
✅ loyal and biddable, a pleasure to have around
✅ bomb proof around stock, horses, chickens, goats. Not interested in cats
✅ a great walking buddy, excellent recall
✅ toilet trained and happy to sleep by the fire
✅ loves to be near you, but not needy
✅ has met children and been fine with them
✅ castrated, microchipped, vaccinated and registered
✅ fine as an only dog
✅ loves a good walk, but not high exercise requirements
We would love to find a country home for this boy, with someone he can follow around, and get the exercise he enjoys. He has been fine with 99% of the dogs he has met in foster (and with previous owner) but has had a couple of altercations with other males, so we would prefer he was an only dog. However, we will consider a home with a playful and submissive female dog, if owners are confident and experienced. He does actually really enjoy playing with other dogs once he has got to know them.
Probably best not to have pigs around, although he is very obedient!
He does have a tendency to howl if he is in a kennel at night by himself, so he would really like to be allowed to sleep inside by the fire please 😍
As with all of our foster dogs, Shrek has an adoption fee of $250. We require a property inspection, vet and council references, and there is a trial period before adoption is finalised.

We have added this facility to help volunteers when preparing displays, leaflets or flyers. You can now print any "Dog for adoption" ads in a standardised format, that gets the main information across. If you have any questions about using or improving this facility, please get in touch.
