DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
SUZIE-Q
1 of 15
Last updated on Monday, May 26 2014
Suzie-Q is a great favourite at DogtownSA with her carers and volunteers as she is always happy and smiling ready for your company and affection. She loves to be the centre of attention and is ever ready, at the drop of a “lead” to go on walks with you and, even better, to the play area where you can spend even more time with her. She makes the most of her morning “brekkie” showing off just how clever she is manoevering her food wobbler, which is a food puzzle in the shape of a Faberge egg and rolling it around to get every last morsel of kibble out. She is such a clever “girl” and will outshine many a young “furkid” at the speed she can do this. Being slightly more mature her age gives her that special edge that the “older” generation has! She loooves to be groomed and will snuggle happily with you whilst you sit on her balcony and wriggle with delight as you brush all her cares away. She is quite happy to be with older children and play ball and join in the fun without any hesitation. She also enjoys relaxing on her “stoep” or lying on her blanket in the sun and recharging her “batteries” ready for the next adventure. Suzie-Q’s dream is to live in a forever home with a family who will lavish all their love and attention on her and in return she will bring you endless days of complete happiness.

HALLE

Last updated on Thursday, Jun 05 2014
Hi guys, my name is Halle! I am one big rolled up piece of LOVE. I love people. I love being petted. I ADORE my friends. I am selective about which dogs I can live with, but with a little consideration for my needs, I am quite capable of living with four legged friend. I have a liver issue, which my people here at Dogtown are working on, and I am not high maintenance in the excercise department - I prefer a gentle stroll to anything that works up a sweat! I am a very tidy person, I dont mess up my bed, and I am really happiest on soft blankies and cushions, while my special diet is prepared and delivered to my door. I am very clever too - I have an amazing way of dealing with people and talk to them with my eyes. They always get what I am saying - this telepathy stuff works! I do enjoy a good bone to chew and I am on a special programme to get fit (arg!) and be as healthy as I can be. I have also managed to score special massages and grooming from my trainer who does my nails, and works with my lymph glands (whatever those are!) and wow! do I feel good after my love sessions! I would love a home of my own, with my own special person to adore (and of course adore me too - a gal has to be loved you know!), and promise to change your life with my special ways.

TAM

Last updated on Monday, May 12 2014
Tam or as we affectionately call her Bam Bam, because all you hear when you head towards her house is her tail bam bam against the floor. Tam has alot of male suitors at the centre and they all love to go on play dates with her, following her around and admiring her beauty.She's more interested in a bit of rough and tumble and races around the play park. She loves the open space and keeping her body and mind in tune. She gets bored easily so she needs humans who are adventurous and enjoy outdoor life. Don't get me wrong, she wouldn't turn down a cuddle on the couch but she likes a life of variety and fun.She would be better as an only dog but who would get to go on supervised play dates as she can be a bit much sometimes. Could that be with YOU?

I actually prefer to be called “Flyn” as I find it ever so much more refined. I do already have SO many good notes on my portfolio that I would like to get a formal name change to suit my fantastic profile. I am black and we all know that is beautiful. I am sleek and sexy and fast and adorable too. I love lovies and am SO willing to learn that my trainer gets very excited working with me. I am super patient too and will most likely be kind to most other animals and dogs. I live with an eccentric roomie, so have loads of practice (Sigh!). I enjoy the finer things in life, like good food, late night romantic meetings, cruises……. I often sit and dream about how my life is going to be, with my forever human…..full of all the finer things in life! Are you able to provide that? If so, contact my booking agent and we can set up an interview :)

PRECIOUS

Last updated on Monday, May 05 2014
Precious is such a favourite at DogtownSA and is one of the first of our special furries that you see on arrival. As a young puppy she was hit by a car and left untreated which resulted with a leg that doesn’t work too well but she has learnt how to cope with this and loves to go on her walks with her four legged roomies and her caregivers. She is very affectionate and on the walks you must remember to stop for an extra cuddle. She shares a couch in her run with her two buddies but as soon as you come to see her she will make sure there is plenty of space for you to sit next to her. She will settle down and be ready to listen to all your stories and give many licks and kisses at the appropriate moment making you feel a million dollars.

“Hanni the Bumble-bee Jackson here, parking off with my peeps at DogtownSA: family, a fast car and the open road, now that’s the life! You guys keen on a little Tracy Chapman? I just dig this tune when I’m cruising: So remember when we were driving driving in your car. Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk. City lights lay out before us. And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. And I had a feeling that I belonged. I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone. You got a fast car? “ Boys will be boys, and this fit fella sure does love his toys: fast cars, rope toys and rubber chewies and he’s sorted! Hanni is really a big ol softie and still a learner driver at DogtownSA. He’s not quite ready to hit the road out to his forever family just yet. While his DogtownSA family teaches Hanni the finer points of navigating through life, he sure would love it if you could pop some bob into his petrolhead fund (there is just no such thing as too many roadtrips or too many rope toys) With some luck and plenty of DogtownSA love and support Hanni hopes find a family and fast car to call his own someday soon.

“Sup Barking Madders, Michael’s my name! Life has thrown me all kinds of curveballs but I reckon we should all just turn our frowns upside down and keep smiling! In the poetic words of my comedic colleagues Monty Python: If life seems jolly rotten. There's something you've forgotten, And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing. When you're feeling in the dumps. Don't be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing. And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life...” Mike always has a smile ready to brighten up our days at Dogtown SA, he has so much love to share with his Dogtown SA humans. Mike just needs a little Dogtown SA help to be a more social fella with his four legged canine compadres before he is ready to set off into the sunset with his forever family. Keep a smile on Michael’s dial and sponsor his stay at Dogtown SA ?

Last updated on Monday, Jul 28 2014
My name is Zoey. My trainer calls me Zoerina. She tells me how much she loves me and that I will find even more people who feel the same. I am SO pretty and kind to people. I need a bit of work with being handled sometimes, as I get a bit nervous, but hey – a girls gotta be careful! One time, I went out to the vet, and met my first flower pot. At first I barked at it, but then I realised it wasn’t going to hurt me, so I pretended that I hadnt been barking at all! That’s ok isnt it? I like to bury my bones and chews and I love to learn new tricks and go walking. I am very good when I go out and don’t pull too much or bark too wildly at the other dogs. I love tearing up toys and balls, and enjoy a good romp. I came to DogTown from another shelter place, I was there for a long time. I think sometimes that maybe my special human just hasn’t had a chance to come spot me yet. Once that happens, I will be one happy lady! I may get along with some dogs… it depends on how I feel, but I would really prefer to be an only child. Maybe with just some friends to play sometimes. Could that special human be you?

Arooooooo....aroooo.... hear me sing the song of my people. In my past, I've been a bit of a nomad, traveling from here to there, and then some more. On my travels, I heard of this hotel for dogs, where breakfast and dinner are always served with a smile, and belly rubs. I figured this is a place to see. When I first arrived at my new house, I had a little difficulty to settle, and when I get nervous, I talk a lot you see. However, my caregiver massages my ears and then I feel much better. It wasn't long until I felt safer, I started to enjoy the company of my neighbours and all the caregivers at Dogtown SA. I get to go on short walks that helps me build up some strength in my legs. I even get to meet other furies like me on these walks, and they make me feel a bit more confident. The other furies tell me that lots of people come to visit us, and many of us get to go with them to 'forever homes'. I would love a forever home! My caregiver tells me I've got a beautiful voice, so if you'd like to hear me sing my song, please come visit me at Dogtown SA. Wait, let me get back to practicing, aroooooo

ARCHER
11 of 15
Last updated on Wednesday, Sep 17 2014
Hi peeps my name is Archer and unfortunately my act of being cupid and sending arrows of love fared well for the humans but didn’t fare so well for me. My owner ‘s beau had a dog that didn’t see eye to eye with me and unfortunately when they moved in together, this obviously caused a bit of tension. So being the truly gallant and chivalrous young furkid, I took the option to move on so that they could enjoy their new home together. At first things weren’t so good and I spent some time in a boarding kennel but just when I was feeling very disheartened my fate changed and I was brought to this very special 5 star hotel called DogtownSA which caters for furkids who need a little bit of extra help to get back on their four paws. Initially I had no idea of what to expect and was very nervous and shouted at the furries nearby to leave me alone. I was also apprehensive of the peeps because I was missing my owner. But gradually as I settled in I knew I was going to be safe. I am really lucky as I have very special carers who come and talk to me, sit with me, bring me great toys and best of all take me for walks. I get so excited that I find it difficult to contain myself and jump up and down showing off and getting rather too animated cos I feel as if I am about to burst with joy. I know I have to control this and my carers are being very gentle with me so that I learn how to behave correctly. I am also learning not to shout so much to the other visitors and they give me suuuppper doopper treats for behaving more calmly. My carers are teaching me that pulling is not a desirable behaviour while out walking and I am learning very quickly to take it slower and with the good instruction I am receiving I will soon be happily walking along at my carer’s side. When we get to the play area we play lots of ball games which I really love and what is so great is that the better behaved I am the longer we get to stay and play. I am just the luckiest furry there is!!! One of my other favourite things is my breakfast in the morning as it comes in a very special big slow feeder that has lots of little mounds in it filled with food and I have great fun getting all the yummy pieces out. I love these types of toys and have great fun pushing this one all over my little garden. My dream is to once again live in a forever home with a family on which I can lavish my love and appreciation especially if frequent walks and games could also be part of my new way of life. I would also like to continue with my obedience classes and if I could have a fellow furkid as well that would complete my lifelong dream!

FOXY

Last updated on Monday, May 05 2014
Foxy is our olde worlde charmer. If he had lived a couple of hundred years ago, he’d probably have featured in a Jane Austen novel, right next to the handsome hero. He is beautiful, shy and sensitive, and seems to have been made for a gentler, more gracious, world. Foxy has travelled a rough road to get to where he is today, and he really enjoys his piece of prime real estate at DogTown SA. He just loves to watch who is coming and going at the shelter, and throw in his two cents’ worth. As long as there is a fence between him and people, Foxy is happy and confident. Foxy does have a shy side which you will meet when you first go into the run, but do not worry, he will soon warm to you especially. if you have a brush in your hand and are going to spend time smarting him up and making him look even more handsome for his galls. Foxy is an older cross-Shephard who loves other canine company, preferably girls, and lots of walks. Although he has recovered well from severe health issues, he still needs a little bit of extra caring. * Unable to adopt Foxy? Then please show your love and support by SMS’ing DOG to 38919. Your donation will go towards caring for the dogs of Barking Mad’s DogtownSA. SMS costs R10, SA networks only.

JoJo
13 of 15
Last updated on Monday, May 26 2014
Jojo came up from the coast from an environment of physical abuse which often seems to be the order of the day. This was evident by the number of scares and wounds found all over her body when she arrived at DogtownSA. In spite of all this Jojo still managed to portray a personality of exuberance and zest for life. Her infectious wiggling and excitement when one enters her run is both contagious and enjoyable for handlers and volunteers who come to play with her and take her out on her walks. She loves to be brushed and cuddled while lazing on her couch and will snuggle into whoever is willing to give her the chance to show her affection. While out on walks she takes full advantage of all the exciting smells and sights and constantly reminds the walker that for this short time she is out walking she is the focal point and expects their full attention. This is achieved by her uncanny ability to become “a tug boat” and pull the walker around the trail at a pace suited only to Jojo. She is however learning that this is not a recognized DogtownSA behavior and will slow down when given the appropriate correction and tasty reward. Due to Jojo’s past before coming to DogtownSA she would prefer a forever environment where she is the only furkid and can receive all the attention that she deserves.

ANNIE

Last updated on Tuesday, May 13 2014
Annie is a feisty “little lady” who knows what she wants and who she likes. When it comes to making new friends she will only be happy in the company of males as she has to be the centre of attraction and be Queen Bee! Being a modern-day thinking lady she thrives on taking the lead and prefers her male partner to toe the line and fall in with her choices of the day. Her current “beau” Spartacus has learnt how to handle this strong-willed lady and another male with a similar outlook would be ideal for her. When you arrive at DogtownSA she goes out of her way to make sure she is noticed and that you will come to see her. She is always ready for you to give her treats and, with a bit of persuasion, come in to meet her and shower her with cuddles. Best of all, she is hoping that you will let her sit on your lap and give her all your attention. She would be best suited to a more mature family, preferably with somebody who is home all day. She loves going on her walks with Spartacus, and she will be only too delighted to go with you on as many outings as she can to keep you company.

CHANCE
15 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Aug 04 2014
Hi there. I am sure you know many of these quotes and sayings - “Chance in a million”; “Take a chance”; “Chance of a lifetime”; “You’ll never know if you don’t take a chance”; well my name is Chance and I can relate to these sayings and be thankful that a very unique 5 star hotel called DogtownSA took a “Chance” on me. My name is Chance and I was found on a dumpster after being involved in a very bad fight and left by some really nasty humans. But have no fear there are some wonderful peeps still out there and one such person saw my plight and rescued me. I was taken to a vet for help where I had many stitches and lots of medication to put me back together again. My lucky stars were really there for me as this peep contacted the DogtownSA family and they make a special plan to take of me. Even though I was still very scared and uncertain of what my outcome could be I put on my brave face (stitches and all) and kept telling myself that I would be okay and I would be safe. Well guys, I was right. Quickly I found out that my fears were totally unfounded as my new family took me in and treated me better that I had ever imagined was possible. I have awesome carers who look after me and spoil me daily with yummy food and chews as well as peanut butter hooves and furry ice lollies to lick during the day. I also get lots of visits from my carers and volunteers who sit with me, chat to me and I get so excited and roll over and entice them into giving me tummy rubs which I loooovvve so much. I cannot tell you just how happy it makes me feel cos I know they are very busy, but I try and get them to stay as long as possible giving them many thank you kisses in return. One of my bestest treats is going out on regular walks with my carer and I wear a comfortable harness and lead. Whilst we are out I have been shown how to do various obedience exercises so on the way we stop and do these I get lots of special yummy treats and cuddles. I love smelling all the many scents along the way and at times get so involved that I need to get to the next one rather too quickly so pull on the lead. I am learning that this is not the most appropriate behavior but with the special training I am receiving from my gentle carer I am slowing down my pace and learning to walk more calmly at my carer’s side. I also get many days when we go to the large play area where I can run around without my lead, play and let off steam until I am really exhausted. So all you awesome peeps out there if you are a family who would like to adopt me and “take a Chance on me” cos as they say in life “One chance is all you need” I will make you so very proud and be your forever special furkid and lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every single day.

Hi Everyone,

 

This is a plea to anyone in Gauteng that is willing to foster young and old, large and small dogs in Gauteng.

These animals have been cooped up in a kennel for many months and my heart aches when I see all those faces looking at me through the fence.

The majority of our dogs are large breeds and they need to have a chance to be free and have space to move and run and play.

 

If you think it is sad for you to look into these cages, imagine how they are feeling looking out.

 

If you feel that you are able to foster a dog, that you can afford to look after him, care for him, feed him, and if you have the space for him in your yard

and can offer him a special temporary home please contact me on Trix4Animals@gmail.comv

PET TIP
TTOUCH
 I adopted my little girl Stella from the spca a month ago. She has not been exposed to much and has been quite weary of all new things. This is primarily due to her not experiencing a wide variety of things during her early learning period.
Today she came with me to my tellington touch course and we have both had the honour of working with Linda Tellington Jones herself today aswell as all the wonderful t touch practioners in training. All I can say is that today my little girl experienced so much and for the first time I feel she is happy in her own body :) This is wonderful work and I encourage you all to experience it with your dog. Contact the t touch office and see when they are holding their next workshops or call one of the many caring and loving t touch practioners we are blessed to have here in our country. You can get a list of the T touch practioners in your area through the t touch office. Please visit their website and explore this wonderful work :)
www.ttouch.co.za
Tellington TTouch is a gentle method of bodywork and movement exercises that positively influences behavior, performance and well-being. It increases communication skills and deepens the relationship between animals and their people.  It is used in over 30 countries around the world to influence both behavioral and health problems.

Tellington TTouch was created by International Animal Expert Linda Tellington-Jonescircles, slides and lifts used to reduce stress and relax tension. It also incorporates body wraps and many leading & groundwork exercises for confidence building. You'll find more detailed info on our What is TTouch page. and includes TTouch bodywork which is a combination of

Eugénie Chopin, an American who has lived in South Africa since 1975, studied Tellington TTouch in the USA and brought it to South Africa several years ago. Hundreds of people here have experienced and found Tellington TTouch to be useful for both problems and the general well-being of their pets.
