If you look up “lanky” in the dictionary, you could possibly find a picture of Tucker.

He’s Hound-Spaniel x who weighs 27kg and is now a year old. We are told he knows sit, lie down, wait (for food), and is toilet trained. See him at play in our video in the comments.

Staff at our Devonport Home say Tucker is “very” energetic. “He needs work on his training as he can be a bit jumpy and boisterous,” they said. Tucker hasn’t lived with children and should probably go to a home with no children, or older teenagers, until he gets his own playful teenage urges under control.

Tucker likes to play fetch and enjoys treats, so reward-based training should be his idea of fun. He enjoys attempting to sit in people’s laps. Staff tell us he’s a great conversation starter as well. We understand he has lived with another dog or dogs.

A comedy fan with their own cracking sense of humour must have named young Arj here, for surely he is named after American standup Arj Barker? See him being seriously good fun in our video in the comments.

Arj is a cheerful, friendly American Foxhound who is four years old and weighs 33.5kg. We’re told he knows sit and wait, sometimes comes when called, and is toilet trained, but may be in need of a toileting refresher course — although staff at our Devonport Home say he keeps his pen clean which is a positive sign.

We understand Arj loves a good run and enjoys following his nose on walks, as any self-respecting Hound should. He is playful with other dogs, although he hasn’t lived with any other pets in the past. He has lived with primary and secondary school-aged children and enjoys the company of kids.

Hey hey, here’s AJ! And what a handsome fellow he is. See him at play in our video in the comments.

AJ is a Beagle-Foxhound x who is one year old and weighs 24.5kg. We’re told he hasn’t had any training, but comes when called and is toilet trained.

We’re told he has a happy nature with a dash of goofball, and considers himself a lap dog despite his size.

“AJ is nervous of new people and surroundings initially,” staff at our Devonport Home said. “But he’s a very sweet boy who doesn't mind snuggling into you. He definitely has the Hound nose as he has to sniff everywhere. 

He likes squeaky toys and rope toys, and enjoys trips to the dog park. AJ has lived with primary school-aged children and other dogs, but not with any other companion animals.

Ziggy looks pretty happy with life, despite finding herself at our Devonport Home. That smile is as wide as the Grand Canyon.

She’s a Staffy-Mastiff x who will be four years old in August and weighs 20kg. We’re told she knows sit and out, comes when called and is toilet trained, although she’s mostly been an outside dog and may need a toilet training refresher course.

“Ziggy is a beautiful, affectionate girl who loves cuddles,” is the news from the Home. “All the staff love her, and she really does smile!” That’s a glowing report if ever we’ve heard one.

She’s had some exposure to visiting children and lived with another dog that, sadly, she did not always get on with. However, since she has been with us she has happily been sharing space with a male yard buddy, so she might like a suitably matched canine companion in her new home.

We now have two Teddys, a Bear, and a Ted in our care. We just need a Jemima and our Play School session can go ahead. Ted certainly enjoys some play — see this athletic guy’s moves in our video in the comments.

He’s a Ridgeback-Mastiff-Staffy x who weighs 22kg and will be four years old in September. We’re told Ted knows sit, stay, and comes when called, but is not toilet trained. Thankfully, he’s not too old to learn some new tricks and should be a good candidate for training that involves treats.

He enjoys a good run in the bush or a spot of fetch. Ted has lived with other dogs — of greatly differing sizes in the form of a German Shepherd and a Chihuahua — but hasn’t lived with any children in the past. He’s enjoyed a rural lifestyle where he was around sheep, cows and horses. Hi-ho, Silver!

What a pair of ornithological delights we have here! They came to us as strays so we don’t even know if they’re going to grow wings.

We think Robin and Wren are Border Collie crosses about eight weeks old. We can say with absolute certainty that they’re both boys. They’re just little rascals now but should grow to be medium-sized dogs. Wren is all black and Robin is black with a fetching white patch on his chest.
 
“They're both very eager to learn and have spent some time in foster care around horses, cats and dogs,” staff say.

As with all pups, training and socialisation will be vital to them growing up to be well-behaved and well-adjusted adults. Puppy preschool is an excellent way to achieve both those goals and to bond with your new pup.

Good golly, Miss Molley is one good-looking young lady.

She’s a Spaniel-Hound x who weighs 12.5kg and will be a year old in December. We are told she comes when called but is not toilet trained. 

“Molley is a sweet, excitable girl,” staff say. “She needs training and socialisation.”

“She has a great, friendly nature and is gentle for her age,” her information states. She enjoys a swim and mucking about with her toys.

As mentioned, Molley needs training. Beginner obedience classes would be an ideal way to introduce her to the basics, and will provide positive socialisation experiences with people and other dogs.

Somebody had their tongue firmly in their cheek when they named Chuckles, who looks like he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders.

He’s a Spaniel-Bulldog x who weighs 19kg and was two years old in March. We’re told he attended puppy school and knows sit, stay, drop (as in drop the ball), comes when called, is toilet trained and used to sleeping in a crate. 

His information says he enjoys runs, walks and playing fetch: “Chuckles is kind natured, very energetic and loves to play.”

He is friendly with other dogs but can be a bit full-on. He could be suited to a canine friend with a similar play style and energy levels. He can also be a bit too much for younger children so would do best in a home with teenagers.

May’s “action shot” is a little blurred because of the speed in which she’s moving, but she looks so darn happy about life as she tears past her curly-tailed piggy toy, we just had to use it.

She’s a Beagle-Spaniel x who was a year old on 10 May and weighs 21kg. We’re told she is toilet and crate trained, and knows sit, stay and comes when called. See video of her enjoying a game of tug of war in the comments.

“May is a happy, playful young girl,” staff say. “She’s a strong dog who
 will need training to stop her pulling on her lead or harness.” 

Beginner training classes would be ideal for May, and give her an opportunity to learn the “boot camp basics” of training, along with getting positive socialisation experiences with people and other dogs. We understand she is friendly with other dogs so that’s a great start.

Kong doesn’t want to be treated like some kind of lowly chew toy. He has loftier goals of being the king of his new family’s hearts.

He’s an American Staffy (how we wish he was from Hong Kong) who weighs 21.5kg and will be two years old in September. He was a stray whose owner’s contact details were sadly not up to date, so we don’t know much else about him. We can say for sure he has an interesting coat and looks very appealing!

“Staff have discovered Kong can sit but he needs more training,” is the report on The Kong. “He loves a cuddle and has shown a playful side but would rather just sit with you. He becomes quite sooky when left alone — he just wants to be loved.” Awww, Kongster.

Ol’ Kongaroo would be a good candidate for beginner obedience training classes, where he can get his learning up to speed and meet lots of interesting new people and other dogs.

🐾 All hail the Kong!
🐾 Needs training
🐾 Just want to love
