Hi everyone, my name is Nori
|Meet Nori, the adorable 6-month-old Staffordshire Terrier cross puppy, a bundle of energy and curiosity wrapped up in a furry package! This pint-sized powerhouse is looking for an active family ready to embark on a training adventure to help her become the best canine companion she can be.
Nori is a spirited pup, full of enthusiasm and eagerness to explore the world around her. While she may be a bit jumpy and boisterous at the moment, with some patient training and socialization, she’ll undoubtedly transform into a well-mannered and delightful companion.
Due to her exuberant nature, a home without young children would be best, as her puppy playfulness may be too much for them. However, Nori could thrive in the company of another older, calm, and confident dog who can show her the ropes and provide a positive role model.
With consistent training, love, and guidance, you’ll watch this little dynamo blossom into a fantastic furry friend. Please fill out an expression of interest form if you’re ready for the rewarding journey of shaping this young pup into a well-behaved family member!
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
