Dog of the Week – Muck
Muck the Cattledog cross Rhodesian puppy.
This is Muck, the charming and still-squishy 11 week old Aussie Cattle Dog cross Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. He and his brothers and sisters have spent the past month at our shelter growing and playing and now they’re ready to be adopted.
Adopting an 11-week old pup like Muck is perfect for creating a lifelong companion; you’re getting a blank canvas, a healthy, vaxxed, microchipped and desexed buddy waiting for you to raise him how you want him. Or her. Muck’s adorable tiny sisters Wendy and Betsy are here looking for a home too.
These little pups (Muck is one of many we have available) are already very social, great with children and other animals but of course, there’s work to be done with toilet training and learning to following instructions (insert gratuitous plug for RSPCA ACT puppy training school here).
A secure backyard and desire for snuggles, licks and forever friendship is all you’ll need to qualify for these pups. Come and see!
Cats of the Week – Homer and Carl
Homer and Carl, the inseparable cats.
Homer and Carl are what we call a bonded pair; they’re siblings who have been there for each other when all the chips fell over and all the other cats ate the scraps. Carl already loves pats and snuggles and he’s showing Homer that trusting people has it’s rewards!
These two can only be adopted together. In fact as a bonded pair they will thrive together and become better cats, companions and pets. Carl himself has already matured into a sociable cat and we’re certain Homer will do the same.
They’re Domestic Short Hairs, about one-and-a-half years of age and desperate for home life. They love their food and will need a patient owner to pamper them while they adjust to their new surroundings.
Drop by our shelter today (we currently have several bonded pairs of cats looking for their furever homes). We’re certain there’s at least one kitty here who’s just perfect for your home.
Pawnote: In recent weeks we’ve seen several of our long-term resident animals adopted including dogs Loca and Dawn, and cats Pudda and Faye. Thank you, Canberra!
