Hi everyone, my name is Nico

Meet Nico, the lovable Golden Retriever who’s ready to bring joy into your life! With a heart as pure as his golden fur, Nico has the Golden Retriever spirit.

Nico embodies all the classic behaviours of a retriever, from his boundless energy for zoomies to his unwavering affection for his humans. You’ll often find him eagerly offering up his treasure trove of toys, inviting you to join in the fun of playtime.

While Nico is brimming with love and enthusiasm, he could benefit from confidence building, especially when faced with loud noises that can sometimes startle him. With patience and reassurance, he’s sure to blossom into an even more confident companion, ready to take on the world by your side. It is also common in the breed to have hip dysplasia, so a family who can understand and provide the care he may need would be perfect.

If you’re searching for a dog who’d be a great family companion, look no further than Nico. With his gentle nature and heart of gold, he’s the perfect addition to any loving home. Please complete an expression of interest as we’d like to hear from you.


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
