DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
FLINT

Last updated on Sunday, Aug 24 2014
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 :)

Widget is the name and even though I'm no spring chicken I am still a puppy at heart. When I was rescued I met my new best friend Bobbie girl, she's a bit of a nervous girl so I make sure I look after her :) I'm that kind of guy. I enjoy a good meal so I have to watch the waistline just like my lady Bobbie he he so we are both presently on diets and a stringent work out plan. We went from rags to riches coming to this Dogtown hotel so it's took us a longtime to understand there will be another meal coming along. So we are finally starting to actually enjoy our meals and treats :) If you come and visit me at the centre you just need a bit of patience with my lady but she comes around once she sees I'm getting love and treats. I don't mean to be cheeky but don't arrive for a visit empty handed he he :) Bobby and Widget have become firm friends and they both have the sweetest, most gentle natures. We would love them to get a home together

Hi my name is TOTO - I am named after a band for their Song about rains in Africa. I like that idea, because my name really suits my cool camouflage coat. I am SO gorgeous, as I keep getting told. Whatever that means. I am super bright too, so my trainer says. She laughed at me so much because I have a great sense of humour and when I do something I do it with all my heart. I am really lovable, I adore being with people - all people, even children. I love being brushed,it makes me feel sooooooo good. I enjoy the odd bone, or chew, and really love my meal times. I am actually a very relaxed girl, you can even take my bowl away while I am eating and I dont mind. I remember to sit,and wait politely. I kind of like cats, but I also want to play with them, so I think that maybe soft toys are better for me - my trainer says I am allowed to play with those. I am a great looking gal, and very kind, I know a lot of tricks, and I am clicker trained, so I can learn all sorts of things! I would love to have a special family to look after.

BRAD

Last updated on Friday, Oct 31 2014
Well hello all you great peeps out there – my name is Brad – now before you get toooooo excited I am not The Brad Pitt but in German Shepherd terms I come a close second as I am rather handsome (to say the least!) hehehehe. I had the awful misfortune of running into electric fencing on a property of London Road and getting shocked every time I tried to escape from the wires and ended up just collapsing. Yet as terrified and exhausted as I was little did I realise that the people that rescued me and managed to get me away from the wires were going to take the best care of me. I was taken straight to a super vet who kept me under observation for a few days cos I really did feel very strange and out of sorts. Luckily I started to recover quite quickly and was then moved to this A M A Z I N G hotel called DogtownSA. I have special carers who come and see me many times during the day and I try my best to get them to stay with me for ages cos I really do loooooooove being with people (especially these kind ones). I do get very excited but my carers are so patient with me and gently remind me to calm down and I get given many yummy treats when I do and it does get easier every time. During the day I also have other delicious hooves with peanut butter inside and lovely ice lollies to lick which taste like chicken so I really do get spoilt. I go on great walks and my carer and I go to a large play area where I can run around and play and chase the birds. Because I get so excited on the walk and want to get to sniff and experience everything all at the same time I tend to pull my carer at a fast pace. But she is helping me to learn to slow down and encouraging me to take my time and I am beginning to understand that the things I want to investigate are not going to go away so I can take my time. I really do love all the attention and affection at DogtownSA but my dream would be to find my own forever family. We could all go to doggy school together and continue to learn more obedience skills. I promise to make you very proud of me and be your forever special furry. I will be so pleased to lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every day.

“Sheriff Sammy, reporting for duty. Chuck Norris step aside, I’m the law round these parts! It’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it. I’m keeping the streets of Dogtown SA safe so every dog can have their play.” Our sweet boy Sammy has a bit of a chip on his shoulder and takes a little while to trust newcomers. He is the self-appointment Sheriff of the rehab section here at DogtownSA. When he’s not out patrolling the streets of DogtownSA he’s stretching out on the couch with his lady Scarlett. Sammy still needs a DogtownSA helping hand learning to trust and accept the big world before he is ready to find his home-sweet-home, but in the meantime this lawman sure would appreciate you sponsoring his stay at DogtownSA.

“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.

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.

Sasha is my name and glamour is my game. I am such a special princess, that I dont need any other dogs around to dim my light. I may one day decide to tolerate some, but I am quite convinced that its just not part of who I am. Humans however........oh yeah - i love you lot! And couches. And soft blankets, and all the things a princess deserves. I love my chews and toys and i adore adore adore bones. Keeps me happy for ages. I love being groomed of course, and I have to have special eye drops every day to keep my eyes sparkling. I don't mind at all - that's the price of beauty. I am happy to live indoors as the outdoor dust messes with my appearance, and dust just messes up my mascara. I am very willing to do all sorts of things for a treat too, because - oh! I do love the fine things in life! Finely chopped bits of chicken work so well (and are low fat - a girls gotta watch her waist line.......) I am very clean and tidy. I don't mess up my blankets like SOME of the other residents here.....tch tch. I don't really need a lot.....just love and some peace. If you don't pay attention to me, I may remind you that I am there......after all, all of us need some reminding to pass along a hug and a kiss don't we?

Hello there peeps – my name is Paddy and I thought I would give you a wee bit of the “old Irish chat” to brighten your day “to be sure to be sure” hehehe. I am a “little” fella with a rather long body and long floppy ears so I don’t really resemble a Leprechaun but I wish I had the magic of “the little people” cos then I could persuade one of you super peeps out there to come and see me and take me back to your home forever. In my short life my sister Poppy and I have already had two different homes and unfortunately both the families had situations where they were unable to keep us forever . Luckily for us though we were able to come back to the bestest 5 Star Hotel in town called DogtownSA and the very special carers are taking great care of all our needs. I am hoping that they are using all their “special” magic powers to find a family who would want to have me for their own. You see I really do love being with people and having lots of chats and with all my energy I will going on as many walks with you as you want and play all the games you can offer. Of course a furkid friend would be brilliant as well but if you don’t have one already I know Poppy would willingly come too. We both did training at DogtownSA and I heard my carers say that we were soooooooo clever and were at the top of the class. So being the “Irish little Devil” I would love to continue with training and show off these skills and make you very proud. So I look forward to meeting you to be sure to be sure!!

Tarzan is king of our little Jozi jungle at DogtownSA. There is never a dull moment with this eager adventurer, he is always ready to swing into action: either for a long walk, some fun tricks to impress his humans or even some cuddles and tummy rubs on his beanbag. After a slightly manic start, Tarzan is learning to take life a little slower and take time to sniff and lick the liver spread so to speak. At DogtownSA, Tarzan is a gastronomic guru; he always has his nose out to sniff out the best treats. Ever the ladies man, Tarzan also enjoys strutting his stuff for the pretty four-legged ladies. This urban explorer is looking for a family that understands how to have some fun and not get too caught up in the rat race. Are you ready to get into the swing of things with Tarzan?

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.

ARCHER
15 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Jan 26 2015
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!

URGENT HOME NEEDED
Last updated on Friday, Jan 30 2015
Dog Town
LOCATION - KWAZULU-NATAL, Buster was rescued 2 years ago after he was found wandering the streets. After several weeks of searching for his owners, we located them. They never went to fetch Buster from the kennels, they couldn't care less in fact. Buster waited and waited for someone to save him from the kennels but nobody even gave him a second look. Then after months of sitting in a kennel, we moved Buster to a foster home. Sadly, his foster mom had to moved but Buster was lucky enough to move to another foster home. He is currently in a foster home but after 2 years of being moved around and unwanted by your own family, Buster must be homed!!!!!!!! Buster is +/- 3 years old. He is neutered and vaccinated up-to date and is good with other dogs. He does need a lot of patience and love as you can understand that being shoved from place to place does not make a dog feel secure at all. Once Buster spends a few minutes with you, he will love you forever. To save Buster from a life of being unwanted and help regain his faith in humans, consider adopting him into your family.

BARKING NEWS - leo learns to sit
Last updated on Wednesday, Aug 28 2013
Dog Town

Leo learns to sit

 

Puppy class at DogtownSA is always fun. The eager enthusiasm of puppies to learn is an absolute pleasure to train. Under the able guidance of puppy trainer extraordinaire James, our clever puppies at DogtownSA learned to sit on command in just a few short lessons.

 

If only all things in life were learned so easily. Meet Leo, he is our big teddy bear in the rehab section of DogtownSA. Leo is ever patient with the moods of his lady friend Micah and is always ready to brighten your day with a wagging tail and smile. Leo however was confounded by the idea of sitting on command. No matter how we tried to teach him (bribery is perhaps a more fitting term, we used all kinds of yummy treats), Leo failed to comprehend the concept of sitting for a treat and his bottom remained very firmly up in the air, tail wagging in blissful ignorance.

 

Our inability to concede defeat is a recurrent theme at DogtownSA. So each day we continued our attempts to teach Leo to sit. Each day, Micah (Leo’s lady friend) happily sat for her biscuit and Leo continued tail wagging, oblivious to our educational aspirations. One blustery winter morning however, things changed. After finishing his breakfast, Leo suddenly sat in front of me. Gobsmacked I froze for a second, luckily I had a biscuit handy to reward Leo. I pushed my luck a little further, and tried to lure Leo into a sit a second time. You could almost see the cogs in his brain turning as he stared up at the biscuit in my hand; and to my amazement, he sat down in front me again.

 

Leo is now besotted with his newly acquired skill and eagerly follows you around to show off his perfect sit.  Leo is testament to the reward of patience and consistency. He reminds us that while some things in life may take a little longer to learn, it is never too late to learn and grow.

PET TIP
STEALING
When your dog steals something do you chase after him trying to get it back?  
Don’t play this game of chase anymore.  You are reinforcing an unwanted behaviour. The more attention you give him for stealing something, the more he’ll steal.    
As long as it’s not dangerous ignore him when he steals something, he’ll stop pretty soon if there is no reinforcement involved. Write the incident off to your mistake, as you are the one who left it lying around in the first place. Remember prevention is better than cure.
Make sure he can’t get to items, which are off-limits. Keep tables and counters completely free of food and other fun chewables; keep the laundry out of your dogs reach for several months until he no longer looks there for fun.  He is stealing this stuff to entertain himself so rather have plenty of yummy chew treats to keep him busy and make sure he is getting exercise and his mind is being stimulated with fun games. If your dog has stolen something you need to take back. Don’t just take the article from him this will only teach him that when he has his fun toy and you come towards him, his fun is going to stop and he will begin to hide with his stolen items. Instead offer him something much better a great big yummy chew toy, not only will he drop the stolen item for you to get back but he will be occupied with this new yummy treat and he will completely forget his stolen item. This will also make him happy when he sees you approaching because good things come from you.
