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.

Isn’t Zia absolutely glorious? She might be a little funny looking, but she doesn’t know that – and we’re certainly not going to mention it to her. We think she’s as cute as a cute thing.

Zia came to us as a stray so we can only hazard an educated guess at her heritage. We think she is some kind of interesting Boxer x about six months old. She weighs just 12.2kg.

“She is real sweetie,” staff at our Hobart Home tell us. When excited, she tends to make the kind of slobbery, huffy-puffy, “I’m a doofus” noise Boxers are renowned for.

Zia’s a bit reserved at first when meeting new dogs but is learning to play and be more confident around them. She’s also been learning to walk on a lead.

As a young girl Zia still has plenty to catch up on as far as training goes, but that youth is to her advantage. All she needs is a little bit of education, guidance and patience from her new human, and combining that with plenty of treats certainly can’t hurt the cause.

🐾 Cute little girl
🐾 Also funny looking
🐾 Honestly, look at her
🐾 She’s just so weird
🐾 And utterly delicious

Hi! My name is Slim Shady. But this little guy is clearly not the rapper Eminem. So won’t the real Slim Shady please stand up?

Slim is a Jack Russell Terrier-Miniature Fox Terrier x who is a year old and weighs a compact 6kg. He hasn’t had any training, including toilet training, so some work will be needed there. Luckily he’s a mix of two very clever little dogs and is eager to please, so that’s a start.

“Slim’s a friendly little guy,” staff at our Hobart Home tell us. “He’s a quiet dog who seems pretty chilled.” He has, however, led a bit of a sheltered life and may need slow and gentle introductions to all the exciting things the wider world contains.

He has lived with children of all ages in the past but now would prefer a quieter home (perhaps without any loud rap music?). He has lived with other dogs but would like a home without cats or chickens.

Look at Patch literally glowing in the sunlight! This golden boy sure has a smile to break many hearts, canine and human alike.

Patch is a Red Heeler who weighs 22.6kg and is four years old. We are told he knows sit and lie down, comes when called and is toilet trained (although he was more of an outside dog so his toilet training may have lapsed a little over time). Heelers are super smart so a resumption of training should hopefully not prove a challenge. 

Patch is looking for a home where his people have plenty of time to spend with him. He’s an active boy – as a working dog he will need both plenty of exercise and mental stimulation – whose idea of fetch is “run away with the ball and hope someone will chase me”. He likes attacking the wet stuff that shoots from the garden sprinkler and travels well in a car.

He has lived with children in a past life but does need to work on his manners as excitement can get the better of him – he might be more suited to a family with older teenagers. He also lived with two cats, one of whom sought never to be anywhere near him, and another who sought a constant state of war. He could prefer no such confusing cat capers in his new home. He hasn’t had much experience with meeting other dogs.

Just like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Ryzen has risen from the obscurity of life as a stray to happier times at our Hobart Home.

Now we just need to guarantee his future happiness by finding his forever family. We think Ryzen is a Bulldog-Shar Pei x about four years old. He weighs 29.4kg.

His status as a stray means we have no information about his past, although he seems like a generally friendly, happy and relaxed type of guy. We can’t say what his training history is like or how he would get on with other pets in the home.

What an appealing fellow is Dexter with his wide, happy grin.

A friendly, confident chap, he’s a Beagle-Hound x who weighs 23kg and is one year old. We are told he knows sit, stay, gentle, lie down, walk and “away”, and is toilet trained. He’s not great at coming when called – some training with the promise of a treat upon returning might help.

“Dex loves to be near his humans,” we are told. “He is still a little naughty at times and would benefit from further training. He is very affectionate and expects all dogs to play and people to pat him.” Reasonable expectations if you ask us.

He likes toys, especially his soft monkey (aww!) and loves food-dispensing toys, as any good dog with a Beagle background should. We understand he considers himself a lap dog.

Dexter is quite the water baby who likes going to the beach, dam or river, frolicking under the garden sprinkler, or splashing about in a kiddie clam-shell pool. If the clam shell is turned into a sandpit with surprise treats hidden away, even better! Since he enjoys water adventures, it’s great that he also travels well in cars. 

He hasn’t lived with children in the past, and was the only pet in his previous home. Apart from friendly, playful relations at the dog park, he did meet up with another dog in the family occasionally, playing and relaxing together, so he might like a more permanent arrangement.

Do you like your dogs silly AND wiggly? Sasha has both those attributes in abundance.

She’s a friendly, playful Staffy x who weighs a little more than 32kg and is two years old. She hasn’t had any training, although we are told she is toilet trained. She’s still fairly young and, if she has the renowned Staffy passion for food, could be a good candidate for treat-based training.

Sasha loves a good creek and enjoys jumping in and out of the water like a leaping fool. She likes going for car rides and is also perfectly happy plonked on the couch watching some TV with her human.

Sasha lived in a single adult home where she had limited life experience – she and didn’t get many visitors and only has a passing acquaintance with children. She was also the sole pet and hasn’t met many other dogs in the past. She’ll need a new home where her owners will gently introduce her to all the fun life has to offer.

Big ol’ Bobo has been keeping staff at our Hobart Home busy (and amused) with his hilarious housekeeping habit.

“His favourite thing to do is to show you his toy/pillow/blanket that he holds in his mouth – no blankets stay in his bed. Staff fix his bedding but as soon as we leave, he picks it up and shows it to you at the front of his pen. It is so cute and fun but annoying at same time as you want him to have a comfy bed!”

Well, he could have more annoying habits, we guess. Bobo is a Great Dane-Mastiff x who weighs 46.4kg and is eight years old. We’re told he knows sit, shake and “gentle” when he’s being fed by hand, comes when called, and is toilet trained. 

He likes rope toys and destroying soft toys. Bobo is not suitable for a home with cats. He’d also be happy with no young kids around as he’s looking for a quiet, relaxing retirement home. He lived with another dog in the past but isn’t always a fan of meeting new dogs. He may do best as the sole canine king of his castle.

Take a closer look at Shadow – doesn’t he have the most delightfully floofy ears?

Shadow is a Heeler-Smithfield x who is about five or six months old and weighs 13kg, with more size to put on. We’re told he knows sit and “out”. We’re not sure where he is with his toilet training as he’s been an outside dog.  

Luckily, he’s eager to learn so that bodes well for his future training. Puppy obedience classes are a great way to bond with your new dog, learn a bit about training, and is a load of nice, mostly clean fun for all the family. 

A young and energetic lad, Shadow has lived with another dog in the past, although he’s a bit full-on for older dogs. If there’s a canine companion in his new home, one with similar levels of exuberance would be ideal.

Mishka is blessed with the internationally renowned Staffy smile – wide and crinkly at the edges, just like a Norwegian fjord.

She’s a Staffy x who weighs 15.5kg and will be two years old on New Year’s Eve. Celebrate good times! Mishka came to us a stray so we don’t know where she is with her training or toilet training.

Mishka can be a bit shy meeting new people and dogs, so she might be better suited to a quieter home. However, she is learning to be social with dogs, and has been especially enjoying the company of Zia, our adorable “mini” Boxer x.
