Hi everyone, my name is Womble

Wombles journey towards becoming the perfect furry companion involves continued work on positive controlled exposure to various stimuli. From new environments and people to different sounds and objects, Womble is eager to learn and adapt with the guidance of his handler.

Wombles sociable nature extends to other furry friends, as he can happily coexist in a home with another adult dog who can engage in appropriate play and help guide his behaviuor when necessary. Additionally, Wombles is well-suited to households with young children, bringing joy and companionship to families of all sizes.

Not to be forgotten, Wombles past experience living with cats makes him an ideal addition to homes with small animals. With proper introductions and supervision, Wombles can thrive in a multi-pet household.

To further enhance Wombles development, participation in dog training classes or one-on-one sessions is highly recommended. These will not only strengthen the bond between Womble and his new owner but also provide valuable skills and commands essential for a well-behaved canine companion.

Previous experience with large breed dogs is preferred, ensuring that Wombles receives the proper care and attention he deserves.

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
