We're looking for foster carers in QLD & NSW!

๐Ÿถ Why foster? ๐Ÿถ

Most importantly, because you could be saving a life.

However, itโ€™s also a rewarding experience, and if youโ€™re looking to adopt an animal on the future, it gives you the experience without the lifelong commitment.

Joey is a 1 year old German Shepherd x

Heโ€™s desperately looking for a foster home (or is available for adoption) - weโ€™re happy to take him anywhere from Sydney to the Blue Mountains for the right home!

Joey needs a home with a super friendly dog that will help him settle in or on his own to receive full attention.

He has been tested with a male dog and did react, however, the other male dog was found to be male dog reactive - so more testing is required.

Joey has spent time with 4 female dogs and did not react at all so is assumed okay with the ladies.

Heโ€™s been around a variety of breeds and shown to be okay - this includes mastiffs, Rottweilers and mini poodles

He does need someone experienced with the breed and he is seeking a home as soon as possible as his current environment is not ideal.

He will need Some positive reinforcement training and relearning of some basic commands.

He'd do great on a property, or with an active family who can handle an energetic puppers needs as well as work on his mental stimulation and continue with some obedience training ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ“–

He hasn't been tested with cats, and wouldn't suit a home interacting with small children as he's super excitable and will knock them around.

Joey does like his outside time more than his inside time, and would happily remain an outdoor dog. He's very alert, and will make his presence known to people in close range to his property.

He is happily an only dog, and does play well with others, though so far male testing has shown him put his guard up.

In general, both dogs and people, he is very much more female oriented.

If you can help or are interested in adopting, please get in touch today โญ๏ธ
