Hi everyone, my name is Autumn

10-month-old Dogue de Bordeaux with a zest for life and a love for all things bouncy. I am ready to bring some Bordeaux brilliance into your life.
 
Straight from the pound, I’m on a mission to find a home that can handle my larger-than-life personality. I’m looking for a strong, patient home that can guide me through the basics of manners in this grand, big world and working on my confidence building. We’ll conquer the universe together, one paw at a time! And speaking of paws, I’m working on my dog-to-dog etiquette, so a furry companion of similar size who’s a seasoned socialite would be ideal.
 
Now, here’s the deal-breaker – no small animals in my kingdom. I have a prey drive, like most dogs, and I wouldn’t want to unintentionally scare anyone.
 
So, if you’re ready for an adventure, a bit of slobber, and a whole lot of love, please complete an expression on interest form as life with me is like fine wine, – it only gets better with time!

Adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
