If you would like to apply to meet Dusty please complete the Expression of Interest Form.
Dusty is a friendly, loyal and playful young girl. Good with dogs, cats and people plus good on and off the lead. Dusty is a rare find indeed. Always pleased to see you she will greet you with loads of enthusiasm when you get home. She is affectionate and thrives on attention.
Dusty will appeal to many families but ideally she will suit a home where she will be involved with her family. Folks who work from home, families with older kids, and active retirees would be well suited to Dusty. She will make a devoted and loyal companion.
She will not suit homes where residents are very young, elderly, frail, time poor or looking for a baby sitter for a current dog.
Yes. Dusty visits an off lead park most days. She is friendly and playful, enjoying a game of chase with another dog.
As Dusty is a friendly young girl she might knock a small child over. She does jump up when excited. We recommend any kids be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm around animals.
15 kgs. Strong for her size.
Medium - playful and moderately active. Dusty is forgiving if you miss a day but prefers a daily outing. As soon as you put your runners on she is up for a walk.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs, Dusty is ok unless distracted.
How is this dog off the lead?
She usually stays close by and comes when called.
This is unknown as she is currently living in an apartment. We recommend a medium sized secure yard.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Dusty has never had the opportunity to live in a back yard for any length of time. She barks at fireworks but is not currently a nuisance barker. In an attempt to gain your attention she may steal your socks but only so you will start a game of chase.
Tolerance to being alone.
She would prefer to have someone around but will happily snooze the day away if alone.
Dusty loves running in the dog park, playing tug of war with her toy tyre and riding in the car with her head out of the window. Most of all she likes the company of her human family and will sit right next to you if allowed.
Fireworks, thunder and skateboards. Dusty barks and gets rather upset.
