Hobart Dogs

Dogs at our Hobart Home

The dogs below are waiting for adoption from our Hobart Home. If you’re interested in adopting one of these dogs, please click the link below to make an appointment to visit the Home. Dogs are being adopted throughout the day, and while we try and update Facebook and the website as soon as a dog is adopted, we cannot guarantee that any particular dog will still be there when you visit.

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

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 a year old and weighs 38kg as of March 2024. “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.
 
We're told Frank knows sit, stop, go, wait and and lie down, comes when called, and is toilet trained. He's still an overgrown puppy in many ways and can let his excitement overwhelm him when people are about. He's going to need a family who can provide him with some training and guidance to help him become a polite young dog.
 
Frank has lived with another dog he got on well with and has been social with other dogs at our Homes, so he might like a doggy mate to keep him company in his new home. He's not suitable for a home with cats.

🔊 A staff member found some photos of Alfie the first time he was with us: as a pup! We have added those pix to the comments 🐾

Handsome Alfie looks to be almost bursting with enthusiasm for life, with his bright eyes and frankly over-the-top ears.

Alfie is a Border Collie-Smithfield x who weighs 20kg and was a year old in May. We’re told he knows sit, heel and walk, and is toilet trained.

Staff at our Hobart Home confirmed this, saying he is a “young, playful, happy boy” who will sit for treats. Ongoing training will be important at his age.

He hasn’t lived with children but has lived with other dogs, although he tends to want all the attention to himself so may do best as the sole dog in his new home. He hasn’t lived with any other pets. He will need ongoing socialisation with other dogs, and people too.

Alfie enjoys going for car rides and likes a splash under the garden sprinkler. 
We’re told he loves to sleep near his humans at night. Aww, Alfie! As a mix of two brainy, working dog breeds, Alfie will need plenty of mental stimulation and exercise.

Wasn’t it The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft who sang: “Yes, there's love if you want it/Don't sound like no comet”? We might have that wrong. See more of Comet in the comments.

He’s a Greyhound who weighs 31kg and was four years old in May.  We’re told he mostly comes when called and his toilet training is a work in progress.

“Comet is a typical Greyhound who loves attention and a pat,” our foster care guru says. “He met a few dogs while in foster care and enjoyed having company of Toby the Dobermann. He likes toys but may destroy soft toys — but, hey, that is the point, isn't it?
 
“His previous owner notes he enjoys wearing a coat and he has been wearing coats with us, so he might be happy to have a wardrobe collection in his new home as a Greyhound fashionista.”
 
He has previously lived with another dog and got on well with Toby in foster care, so he might like a canine companion in his new home. He’s not suitable for a home with chickens.

Furbies were an early interactive toy developed in the late ’90s. Our Furby looks like he’s craving some human interaction in the deepest way. Just look at those eyes! See more of him in the comments.

He’s a German Shepherd-Kelpie x who is about 15 weeks old. He weighs 16kg right now with plenty of filling out to do.

“Furby is a gentle, reserved boy who can be slow to warm up, staff say. “However, once he gets to know you, he comes out of his shell and is quite playful and affectionate. You might call him a shy guy who is working towards a party animal.” Nicely put!

As with all youngsters, Furby will need ongoing training and socialisation. Puppy preschool is a great way to set your dog upon that path by learning some training basics and getting positive socialisation experiences with people and other pups.

You might remember Murray, who was adopted last year. He has come back to us through no fault of his own — he just needs to find a family that’s the right fit. 

He’s a Hound x who weighs 26.5kg and was two years old in February. We’re told he knows sit and that’s it. He’s been an outside dog so he may need toilet training. 

“Murray loves people and enjoys the company of other dogs but is very energetic so will require a friend who can keep up,” staff say. See pix and video of him at play with the similarly energetic Scooter in the comments.

“He loves having a swim so would love a family who live near a water source. He has been known to go for a paddle in the dams at the Hobart Home while out on his walks.”

Murray also loves a sniff and to follow his nose on walks, like all Hounds do. He’ll need a family who have the time to meet his need for exercise and mental stimulation, along with obedience training. He’s not suitable for a home with cats.

Shhhh! Don’t tell Elliot we said this, although it seems obvious at a glance — this guy’s future needs to involve some serious weight loss to give him the long and happy life he deserves.

Elliot is a Beagle who will be five years old at the end of November. He weighs 35kg. He will need a family that’s willing to help him work towards a healthy weight through gentle exercise and diet, and the power to resist any puppy dog eyes he might turn on you.

We’re told he knows sit, comes when called if he feels like it, and is toilet trained. We’re also told he likes other dogs, enjoys cuddles on the couch and snuggling with soft toys. Awww. He’s not suitable for a home with children under 12 years of age, or chickens of any age.

Ziggy’s one little white tootsie is totes adorbs, as is the tiny splash of white on the other foot.

She’s a Kelpie-Beagle-German Shepherd x who weighs 20.5kg and will be a year old on 25 July. We’re told she knows sit, wait, drop, comes when called, and is toilet trained.

“Ziggy is a reserved, placid young lady who is looking for a family with time and patience to show her the ways of the world,” staff say. “Her quiet nature soon dissipates once she has gotten to know you and she feels comfortable with you, so don't be fooled.

“Like most puppers, treats are the way to her heart. She would prefer a more settled home without loud, boisterous humans, as they can be a little bit overwhelming. Ziggy may enjoy a doggy housemate but would naturally require a meet and greet before committing.”

🐾 Placid nature …
🐾 Then warms up
