Hi there, my name is Bear and I’m part of a reduced price adoption campaign to help me find my forever home. From Saturday 6 May my adoption fee will be reduced by 50%. This means my new adoption fee is $240. Will you adopt me?
Hi our names are Bundy and Bear and we are a bonded pair of brothers who are looking for a super special human that has the room in their heart to give us the life we need. The staff know it is a big ask of someone so they tried to see if we could cope apart but quickly realised we are a package deal!! Sadly we were surrendered to the RSPCA due to illness of our owner, we have been together with our human since 4 weeks of age so this has been a massive transition for us. We have come from a quiet life with just one human and loved spending time with him, we will need to go to a similar home that has adults only and is calmer and quieter. We will need sometime to settle into our new routine and get to know our humans, we have formed some unbreakable bonds here with the shelter staff and they all know that with the right family we will thrive and be happy. We will need someone who has some experienced with dogs and how to understand our body language so that you know when we might be a bit overwhelmed in a situation and need some space. When given the choice we will take ourselves away and entertain ourselves we just need to make sure that we are given that option. We really enjoy spending time in the yard together, playing and sniffing so it would be fantastic if we have a good sized backyard with solid fencing so that we can't get distracted by the outside world.
Requirements: -Must meet all family – Adult only household
-Must be only pets in household – Quieter home
-Experienced Owner – Solid secure fencing
I know we are asking a lot but we are hoping that whoever is reading this will fall in love with us and call out to us saying 'Yo boys' and it will feel just like home again. We will wait for you eagerly and hope we find our new family again soon. Love Bundy and Bear
