Meet some of the adorable adoptables available at Auckland’s main animal shelters.
Breed: Fox Terrier X
Age: 6 years
Meet me: I’m an affectionate boy who needs lots of cuddles from my human! I don’t know many commands, so I need a calm home where someone can give me the attention and training I need.
Trust me, with a few treats I’ll be eating…err… training out of the palm of your hand.
What about you? I’d love to be part of a family who can spend some time developing my training and socialisation.
I can get a little grumpy around excited dogs, so would be best placed in a home with a quiet dog and no cats or stock.
Breed: Jack Russell X
Age: 7.5 years
Meet me: Wruff! I’m just a sweetheart looking for someone to love. I LOVE food, so if you have the treats I’m ready to listen and learn.
What about you? I’m a little older, so I’d love a quiet home with children older than 10 years. You’ll be happy to know I need minimal grooming, but although I’m small I need daily exercise – let’s play ball!
Breed: Huntaway X
Age: 2 years
Meet me: I may be a cool dude, but I’ve always got time for cuddles. I love human attention, and will always lean in for more when you stop patting. I know basic commands, but I hope we can have lots of fun together learning more – especially if food and toys are involved.
What about you? I want to join a family which is active and prepared to give me lots of stimulation. I would prefer a home with no cats and with a section that I can run around in.
