Dogs at our Devonport Home

The dogs below are waiting for adoption from our Devonport Home. If you’re interested in adopting one of these dogs, please make an appointment to visit our Devonport Home using the link below.

Dogs are adopted throughout the day, and while we update Facebook and the Web page as soon as possible after adoption, we cannot guarantee that any particular dog will still be available when you visit.

We only take visitors by appointment. This helps us to limit the number of people in the adoption area, reducing stress on the dogs. Bookings can only be made on the day and for two days ahead.

What a happy face Daisy has! See her happily running around in our video in the comments.
 
A Beagle-Hound x who is six years old and weighs 27.7kg, Daisy is a “beautiful, loving dog”. She “sorta kinda” knows sit and wait, and occasionally comes when called. We’re told she is toilet trained.
 
Daisy doesn’t mind a touch of luxury, as she likes to sleep under a blanket. Staff tell us she is playful, especially when chasing balls, confident, and sociable with people.
 
We understand she loves going on car rides to the beach. Daisy has lived with primary school aged children and another dog in the past.
 
An energetic dog, Daisy needs plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to keep her happy. She also needs solid, secure fencing as she has the famous Beagle urge to wander and the Hound’s incredible capacity to follow their nose, although keeping up her exercise regime and providing her with interactive toys to keep her mind busy should help.

Frank should have been in Led Zeppelin, because everything we hear about this guy points to him having a whole lotta love.
 
Frank’s a Foxhound-Brittany Spaniel x who is coming up on six months old and weighs 21kg. “Frank is such a loving dog,” we’re told. “He’s got a lovely demeanour. He’s a beautiful, sweet boy with a lot of love to give.
 
“He loves his people and playing. He’s extremely clumsy, loves cuddles, food, and climbing on your shoulders. He loves being carried if you can hold him and is basically a giant lap dog.” See? That IS a lotta love.
 
Frank knows sit and comes when called, and has been working on “wait”, although he’s not yet toilet trained. Since he loves his food, is responsive to treats and has the advantage of both youth and a mix of clever breeds, ongoing obedience training shouldn’t be too challenging.
 
Frank has lived with another dog he got on well with. He’ll need good fences in his new home – if he gets out, he will follow his nose wherever it takes him, as Hounds do.

Copper has been nothing but sweet, friendly and confident since coming into our care as a stray. He’s a 26kg Hound x who we think is a bit over one year old.

Copper loves attention, and playtime is high on his list of priorities. He will need plenty of daily exercise and enrichment-based activities to keep his doggy brain busy, especially when he’s left alone. He knows sit and stay, and ongoing obedience training and socialisation will be a must.

He’s not suited to a home with small animals, as he’s unable to resist his Houndie urges to indulge in the thrill of the chase.

🐾 Sweet, friendly lad
🐾 Needs lots of exercise

Here at the Dogs’ Homes of Tasmania, we now have two Coppers to rub together – and they’re both at our Devonport Home. That shouldn’t be confusing at all!

This new guy is a seven-month-old Viszla-Hound x who weighs 23kg (see video of him in the comments). Copper has had some training and we’re told he knows sit, stay, wait, come and paw, and is toilet trained. He would probably benefit from further ongoing training. Staff tell us he “seems quite smart” and we are told he’s eager to please.

“Copper is very loveable and friendly,” we hear. “He loves snuggles and likes to rest on you.” Awww.

Copper is both enthusiastic and energetic – in fact, he can be a little boisterous and takes a few moments to settle. The kid is only young, after all. He has lived with young children in a previous life but as he has grown in size he might be more suited to a home with older offspring.

He loves toys, especially the variety that dispense food, and likes splashing around under the garden sprinkler.

🐾 Eager to please
🐾 Smart fellow
🐾 Lover of snuggles
🐾 Training ongoing

Max brings our quota of Hound crosses who look like they’re wearing eyeliner to about eleventy billion. See him at play with another mascara devotee, Daisy, in our video in the comments.

This handsome man is a one-year-old Beagle-Foxhound x who weighs 18.6kg. He’s a sweet-natured dog who needs both obedience toilet training. He loves his snacks so the way to his heart and mind may well be through treat-based reward training.

Max likes chew toys and playing fetch, and also enjoys going to the beach or frolicking under the garden sprinkler. He has lived with primary school aged children and another dog in the past, but prefers easy-going dogs to play with.

Echo’s plea for a forever family needs to be heard around the world – or at least around Tasmania. Has she set off reverberations in your heart?

Echo is a pretty Staffy x who weighs 17.4kg and is believed to be about two years old. Not a lot else is known about this cutie, who has been described by staff as “sweet”. That’s a ringing endorsement! But we simply don’t know if she has much experience with other pets or children.

“We can say she is a beautiful, human-orientated girl,” staff told us. “She will sit but would benefit from further training. She does have the occasional burst of energy but is generally a laid-back, cuddly dog.”

🐾 She’s calling you
🐾 Pretty lil lady
🐾 Sweet natured
🐾 Human focused
🐾 Cuddles await

Levi’s quite the handsome lad. He must have good genes! 

The fabric of Levi’s past is unknown to us, since he came to our Devonport Home as a stray and is unable to spin us a yarn. Perhaps he was weaving his way around, hoping someone would cotton on to his charm. We think he’s a Staffy x about one year old. He weighs 18.3kg.

Material references aside, we can say that he’s an energetic young boy who will need obedience training. He’s food oriented – cut from the same cloth as many Staffies  – so hopefully that can be harnessed for his education.

Levi loves being around people but may be a little too full-on for small children. We’re sure he could be the right material for a home with older offspring where he can make a seamless transition to pick up the threads of his new life.

A-hem! Sew don’t stand around with your hands in your pockets or leave Levi on pins and needles – zip to our Devonport Home. We hope our puns have kept you in stitches.

Angus must have had some beef with our photographer during his photoshoot – boyfriend has rudely poked out his tongue for all to see.

Jokes aside, we are told Angus is “a friendly, affectionate boy who absolutely adores human affection”. Affection both ways sounds promising! He came to us as a stray and we believe he’s a Bull Mastiff about five and a half years old. He weighs a bit more than 36kg.

Angus knows sit and is generally very well mannered, although he is strong on a lead. An obedience training refresher that includes treats when he does walk well could provide all the motivation he needs to rein things in.

He’s not suited to a home with cats, but we understand Angus is good with other dogs.

Are you into fancy French-style baking? How would you like a kitchen helper who can roll your croissants for you with just one curl of his slobbery, slobbery tongue?
 
Then look no further than Buddy. He’s an 18-month-old Boxer who weighs in at an impressive 42kg. We are told he knows sit and high-five, and is toilet trained – although he was an outside dog so that training may have lapsed. He needs to work on coming when called so an overall obedience refresher is probably the go.
 
A happy, playful dog, he likes mucking about with toys, including Kongs and sniffy games, and is also fond of a spot of fetch. He’s also a big swimmer, enjoying going to the beach, dam or river.
 
An energetic and powerful boy, he can be strong on the lead. Further lead work combined with obedience training should help him settle. He has lived with children aged over 12 years.

Check out Rocky sitting there so nicely, with his lovely fawn coat gleaming in the sun.

Rocky is a nine-month-old Mastiff-Staffy x who weighs 29kg. We are told he knows sit, lie down and wait (sometimes), comes when called, and that he is “mostly” toilet trained. “Mostly” is at least far better than “not at all”.

“He's really sweet and playful,” staff at our Devonport Home tell us. “He can be a little nervous of new surroundings and could benefit from more obedience training.”

He likes hard toys like Kongs and food-dispensing toys as well. He has lived with younger children but tended to bowl them over in his zest for life. Until his training is more robust – and we’re told he’s eager to please which is a bonus – we’d suggest a home with children aged over 12 years. 

Rocky has also lived with cats, with whom he adopted alternate strategies of chasing and being wary of. He likes chasing and not returning balls, and enjoys a dash about under the garden sprinkler or some quality shower time.
