Pets of the Week

Dog of the Week – Lunar

This week’s Dog of the Week, Lunar, has been at our shelter for too long. She’s such a smiley, friendly girl, her photograph isn’t for marketing purposes; she’s like that all the time.

Lately Lunar has been occupying one of our largest yards and if you’re looking at our kennel occupants and you hear a dog behind you calling for attention, it’s Lunar. Then it becomes a game, it’s like when you accidently make eye contact with someone you don’t want to talk to; once you’ve done it, they know you’re there and they’re going to talk to you.

In this case, Lunar’s tail will be wagging and she excitedly walks back and forth as you approach. It’s her smile, she’s irresistible.

Lunar loves a game of fetch and spending time with humans. She’s a six-year-old German Shepherd Kelpie cross looking for an active Canberran to be her new soul mate.


Bird of the Week – Pickle and Pearl

Now here’s a cute couple who’d love to move in with you. They’re Pineapple Conjures’s who didn’t get along with the other bird in their last home. They like each other and people though, so it’s cool.

They’re very chatty and have some funny quirks. Pickle will ‘step up’ onto your hand, he’ll have a little nibble too, but nothing that will hurt you. He likes to dance afterwards, he thinks he’s funny.

Pearl is a bit shy about doing a ‘step up’ but when she’s feeling brave she’ll stand on your head as if she’s the Queen of the World!

The pair are bonded, they need to live with each other so it’s a package deal to adopt them. You’ll need a large bird enclosure and ideally some experience with parrots and no other birds.
