Launceston Dogs

Dogs at our Launceston Home

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

Please be aware that 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 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.

Is there an empty space in your heart where a dear little doggy once was? Patch will happily patch over any wounds with his bright eyes and happy smile. 

He’s a Kelpie-Staffy x who is eight months old and weighs 17.4kg. We understand he’s had no training, although he comes when called, and is only “partially” toilet trained. He does have the advantage of youth on his side as far as future training goes. 

“Patch is a fun-loving, goofy pup with lots of energy,” staff at our Launceston Home say. “He hasn't had much experience in the outside world but loves to get out of the house and go for walks.

“He loves playing with other dogs but can be a little rough. He hasn't had much training but is learning how to sit and not jump. He loves toys and cuddles.” 

Patch hasn’t lived with children, and doesn’t have experience of living with any companion animals, including other dogs, although as mentioned he does enjoy playing with them — he just needs to learn some doggy manners. Socialisation with dogs and us humans will be vital to his development.

Handsome Parker is quite the mysterious guy – we have next to no info on him. We can’t even ask him if he has Spidey senses like Peter Parker.

We do know he’s a Hound x who is one year old and weighs 22kg, but that’s it. We don’t know where he is with his obedience or toilet training, but we have noted he likes to keep his pen clean. When it comes to training, he does have the advantage of youth and enthusiasm on his side. See more pix of him in the comments.

“Parker does sit nicely when asked,” staff at our Burnie Home said. Parker was at Burnie before moving to Launceston. “He needs a bit of lead training. He is playful with other dogs.”

Well, that’s a bit of good news at least! Parker might like a canine friend in his new home. Other than that, we can only paraphrase the words of Homer (Simpson, not the Greek poet): “Spider dog, spider dog, does whatever a spider dog does …”

Bernie’s backstory may be a bit elusive, but one thing is for sure — he's all about playtime and canine camaraderie.

This loveable hound, who came to us as a stray, is searching for a home where he can have furry friends to frolic with, as being surrounded by his doggy pals seems to bring him joy. As of March 2024 he is 18 months old and weighs 37kg.

He knows how to sit and stay but still has a lot to learn, so he will need someone who is willing to provide him with ongoing obedience training and enrichment. He has a cheeky side and playful, pup-like nature.

“Bernie is one of happiest dogs of all — I don’t think he has bad days, and he is always up for adventures,” says volunteer Maria. “If any dog can brighten an average day, Bernie can. I have only the best wishes only for this big fun fellow!”

“Nah nah nah-nah naaah,” says Rex. “I’m the king of the castle and you’re the dirty rascal!”

Smiley fellow Rex is an American Staffy who weighs 27.4kg and will be three years old in October. We don’t much information on him, including any previous training he may (or may not) have had, or his past living circumstances.

“He is a very sweet boy who can be a little reserved at first but is coming out of his shell more each day,” staff at our Launceston Home say. “He is such a sweetie and loves a snuggle-cuddle in your lap!”

We have found Rex to be a quiet-natured boy since he’s been with us. Because we don’t have any information on his past, we’re unable to say how he would go living with other companion animals, although we have discovered that he needs to go to a cat-free home.

JD could stand for pretty much anything but in this girl’s case we’ve settled on Just Divine! Although Just Darn Goofy looks like it would also suit.

JD is a Kelpie x who weighs a smidge under 29kg and is three years old. We are told she knows sit, stay, comes when called, and is toilet trained. 

A very affectionate girl, JD is under the impression she is a lap dog, which means hilarity is almost guaranteed with this one. She loves to play, and her favourite game is chasings, which means exercise is also guaranteed. She also likes splashing around in water – up to her chest, anyway.

We don’t know if JD has lived with other pets in the past. She plays very nicely with her doggie friends at our Launceston Home.
