Game & Scout are looking for a home to retire – preferably together

Game is a female staffy cross (8 years) and Scout is a male blue healer cross (7 years)
These 2 have been outside dogs their whole life. They have not been walked or socialised, so they are dog aggressive due to lack of leadership. They are also not good with cats or any other animals, just humans. (Not tested with children)
Game has eye issues which have not been addressed due to lack of funds for the vet. No medication has been prescribed.
A medical history can be provided from the current vet but it may not be thorough, due to lack of regular checks ups.
Scout doesn’t have any current medical issues that we know about, he is known to bark more than Game.
Game has had 2 litters in the past. Both dogs are now desexed, registered and microchipped.
Both suffer lethargy from not being exercised. They both live on supermarket kibble, or human scraps when given.
Both can walk on lead, they are better when walked individually.
These 2 will suit a fenced lifestyle block where they can self exercise and not bother any other animals.
They need a confident leader who can show them some life skills, both will thrive when they understand rules, boundaries and have regular exercise. They only know basic commands.

Sweet girl Pepsi is a 17 year old Bichon Frise Cross. Her elderly Dad has moved into a rest home and would love Pepsi to move to a loving home to retire.

From the Country to the Coromandel!


Senior Dog Club is very excited to announce….

Molly has found herself a fabulous beach house with a fabulous new Mum, where she gets to retire and be treated like a queen!

Long walks on the beach, skipping in the waves, swimming in the calm, daily meetings with the neighbours dog through the fence, lying in the sun in the garden….this is Molly’s new life! Wishing her happy days, lots of love and sun!

Molly’s new mum was one of the first applicants to adopt a senior dog, through the Senior Dog Club in 2022.
When we were asked to rehome Molly, I knew it would be a perfect match. She was thrilled to receive the invitation to welcome Molly into her home & heart.

Gorgeous Bella Joins The Senior Dog Club

Bellas family were concerned about Bella (nearly 10), living with her human in their retirement village apartment.
They had read the Senior Dog Club article in “Stuff”, and decided it would be a good service and time for Bella to find a new family.

I met with Bella and her family, we chatted about Bella’s best options and decided the best the way forward. Bella attended a senior examination at her vet, including a full blood screen. She also had a very special groom at “Puppy Paradise” in Massey. Please watch the adorable video on Facebook.

Last week I drove Bella south, towards Taumarunui to meet her new Human and K9 Sister Lizzie.
It was such a great match! Bella had jumped into her car within 2 mins of meeting, as though they had always been together.
Within an hour of arriving at her new house, Bella was bathing in the sun on her deck with Lizzie, she had explored her quarter acre country garden, ate homemade dehydrated chicken, and sussed out the bed and the couch!
She is now part of Lizzies walking group, they meet (with their humans) every Saturday morning, where they explore new places, and play brain games as a group. So Bella is really living her best life in the country! Bella is a very confident, sassy lady, which made the transition between family’s very smooth. Bella was very excited for a new journey, and her previous family are assured they have done the right thing by Bella. The pictures say it all!



Senior Dog Club Announces Their First Club Member.


Welcome Monty!

The Senior Dog Club was contacted by Monty’s family in Autumn 22. Unfortunately his elderly human was no longer able to look after Monty after moving into a rest home. Monty was required to leave his current living situation asap.
The same day Monty was rehomed to a Senior Dog Club Carer, where he met his new little K9 sister, Luna. Monty was introduced to a whole new life, and have a family who adore him.
Over the past couple of months, Monty has been through a full medical, a full dental, a groom and has lost around 6 kilos on his new healthy diet.
Monty loves his new parents, his little sister Luna, he loves waiting for his lead before a walk, he loves sitting in the long grass at his local park – looking like the curly cattle from wales, and he loves his new waistline.
