My name is Roger and I'm part of the MARANOA Litter. We were saved from a rural council pound and I am now fully vetted and ready for adoption. I am the last of my siblings to be adopted so I sure hope I find a family to call my own soon.
I spend my days outside and I sleep outside at night time without making a noise at all. I sure do love to come inside for a sneaky cuddle though and if I do, I promise I will be a good boy
I love playing with squeaky toys, and it is even better when I have someone to play with. I love playing fetch with my doggy friends. I get a long great with my foster siblings and other dogs that I have met since being in care. It's nice having doggy friends to keep me company during the day.
I don't mind the cat, in fact, I think I might like it. Weird eh? Not really, I'm just such a good boy that I get a long with everyone. I even love the kids I see at the park when I go for walks
. I just want to be friends with everyone. How am I not adopted yet? I also know some cool tricks! I know how to sit, shake and I am learning to wait for my food. I have really good recall for a pup.
What else can I say? I am a good boy, I just need a chance to prove it to you!
Our history is unknown but we look like Mastiffs, maybe with a touch of Dane? We are definitely large breed, and we are all laid back, cool kids who just want to hang out and have fun. Because of my size, it's important you look after my dietary needs. Good nutrition is important when raising healthy large breeds (gotta protect my hips and knees!). I currently eat BlackHawk Large Breed Puppy biscuits, which is only $5-$6/kg. I would also love a hammock bed so that when I'm an adult I'm not putting too much pressure on my joints by sleeping on hard surfaces. I will have a medium energy level, so while I'll love my daily walks and park trips, I won't be a high needs boy! I'll be your walking buddy and your movie marathon buddy. Best of both worlds!
Happy and healthy. Has had first vaccination and microchip implant, and flea/tick/worm treatment is up to date. Any vaccinations due after date of adoption are the financial and ethical responsibility of the adopter. Desexing is paid for upfront, as part of the adoption fee. It is non negotiable and must happen by 7 months of age. Simply present your pet to one of our OTC-approved clinics and we will pay for the surgery. Second vacc due: 19/09/2017
Before applying, please consider and finalise the following: real estate approval, fence repair if needed, outside shelter areas and look into the dog's breed dietary requirements eg large breed vs medium breed.
Once you are ready to adopt, please complete the OTC Adoption Application questionnaire below. This is not a contract or agreement of any kind, just an expression of interest in the animal. We will not authorise meets unless this has been completed and only approved applications may meet the dogs. Once you are approved and have submitted all relevant information, we will organise for you to meet the dog at your home, or in a public place. If you have other animals they must be at the meet.
If at the meet, you and the dog get along- you have the option of either taking the dog on the spot (in exchange for the full adoption fee paid upfront, and contract signed)- or placing the dog on hold for up to 2 days without any holding fee applicable. When adoption begins you will be provided with 7 days' worth of food for the dog, as well as what brand and type of food it is, so that you may change their diet carefully and slowly, or purchase more, if needed.
*PLEASE NOTE we do not hold dogs for 3 days or longer, without a non-refundable holding deposit of $100. If you are unwilling to put a deposit on the dog, we will continue to advertise and speak with other potential adopters and so you may miss out. We have had to make the deposit non refundable to avoid time-wasters, especially when it comes to puppies under 5 months of age. The $100 holding deposit is then subtracted from the outstanding adoption fee, which is to be paid at collection of the dog. Eg if full adoption fee is $450, and you pay a $100 holding fee so we can hold the dog for a week- the day you collect the dog you will sign and adoption contract, and pay the remaining $350 fee of which $50 is non-refundable.
During the trial period, should the pet become ill, you must present it to the OTC-approved vet clinic in your area and OTC will cover any treatment needed.
On commencement of the trial period, OTC will send you a copy of your signed contract, the vaccination cards, desexing certificate and microchip number implant details.
So. Ready to roll? Then fill out the attached short form, and we will be in contact to successful applicants asap. Feel free to follow us up via Facebook page inbox.
