Foster a dog or puppy
Dogs & Puppies available for adoption
Age: 12-24 months old (approx.)
Boston is currently living his best life in his amazing foster home, he has his own bed, his favourite toys and snacks, lives close to a park, gets heaps of cuddles and love from his foster mum and even gets to go on a road trip each day to go and play with his awesome buddies at Hamilton Hounds Doggy Day Care, (who very generously sponsor our foster dogs whilst they search for new families!) life’s pretty good and whilst we all love him, we want to see this fab boy find his very own forever family.
An unclaimed stray at a pound, we don’t have any history on Boston, we estimate him somewhere between 12-24 months old, as for breed; possibly a Kelpie/Heeler/Staffy mix (but we can’t be sure!) Regardless of his breed he sure is one cruisy, affectionate and fun-loving guy, and he’s going to make a loyal companion to one very lucky family!
Energetic and playful, he loves other dogs, playing with his toys and a good hoon (and roll) around the park. He’s great with people, and adores to accompany his humans on their daily adventures. He isn’t suited to a lifestyle where he will be left alone all day (he thinks that sounds boring!!) Boston isn’t a fan of cats, he can become fixated on them and will chase if given the opportunity, so he requests a home without the presence of the feline gods please!
His foster mum has put an amazing amount of time into this boy and he reflects this in his respectful and loving behaviour, he listens well and is eager to please.
He’s desexed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, council and NZCAR registered, up-to-date with flea/worm treatments and is even adopted with 30 days free pet insurance! He is $300 to adopt (which helps go towards some of his vet costs) He is currently located in Hamilton.
Does Boston sound like the dog of your dreams? He wants to hear from you!
Please phone 027 649 9088, we will not take applications via PM or text. Leave message if no answer and someone will get back to you within 24hrs.
Age: 10 weeks old (approx.)
Current location: Cambridge area
Adoption fee: $250
She’s smart, she’s sweet and she is a sprinkle of sass! Meet one of our latest recruits’ looking for her new family; Nala.
Nala is full of life and energy, she loves to spend her days exploring and playing. She is a strong-willed, confident and a social young puppy who is good with cats and great with other dogs (she can also be a little mischief maker and if she thinks she has the opportunity to boss around some of our younger puppy residents she will).
She loves meeting people and having cuddles and snuggles. A good listener and a quick learner she has heaps of potential to make a fabulous, fun-loving and loyal family addition.
She is only a baby so she is looking for a new family who will commit to her for the duration of her life (next 13+ years!), you will need to be patient and willing to commit the time, love and energy into ongoing training, including house training and ongoing socialisation). Nala is far too young to be left alone for long periods of time, she will need some daytime company (another dog is ok), and she will need to sleep inside the house as part of the family.
Her dad is a mastiff and her mum a staffy/whippet, we believe she may grow into a medium sized dog.
Nala’s adoption includes:
• Council and NZCAR registration
• Treated regularly for fleas & worms
• Adopted with 30 days free pet insurance (conditions apply)
There is an adoption fee of $250 to help us cover some of the above costs.
You must have a fully fenced, secure property to safely contain Nala, she must have access to inside the house. Property & council checks apply.
Please PHONE 027 649 9088 to chat about the home and lifestyle that you can offer. No texts or emails.
Pepper is 2 years old & has been a family pet since she was 8 weeks old, but she sadly needs a new home. This is not an easy decision for the family so please be respectful, no negative comments.
Pepper currently lives on a lifestyle block but her owners are now both working full time & Pepper doesnt cope with being on her own for the long hours. Its not fair her being locked up in a kennel & run for long hours and she gets bored and goes wandering.
Pepper needs to be somewhere that she can run and burn off all of her excess energy and use her brain, then shes happy. A farm/lifestyle property would be perfect.
Her heritage is unknown as she was picked up as a stray, but we think she looks like a Huntaway x but we really have no idea. She weights around 23kg.
Pepper has a lovely loyal nature, is super intelligent, and is VERY eager to please. She has basic training, (eg. come, sit, wait, off you go, and knows to sit on her mat when inside) and would easily learn new commands quickly.
She is excellent with children (lives with 2 older kids), she isnt great around very young children under 6years as she can be abit mouthy.
Pepper can be abit over excited with other dogs, she just wants to be friends with them all, but can try and herd them which can cause issues. She has not lived with cats before but is good with sheep, goats and chooks.
Ideally a farm or lifestyle property would suit Pepper, you will need an area to contain her in when no one is home. A property inspection will be carried out prior to adoption.
Pepper is desexed, fully vaccinated, council registered, microchipped which is registered on the NZ Companional Animal Register and is up to date with flea and worm treatments. A small donation to New Lives Rescue is asked.
Pepper is located in Cambridge area.
In the first instance please phone Donna 027 649 9088 to discuss Pepper and the home you may be offering.
