DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
JERSEY
1 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Jul 07 2014
Hi my name is Jersey and my dream is to find my forever family who maybe already have one or two furries of their own and would like to add another one. I currently live with two boys and we play all sorts of games together for most of the day. Some are quite robust and even rather noisy but it is because we love running around our garden and letting off steam and of course we have to tell all the other furkids at DogtownSA just what fun there is to have when you have fur-buddies and I do like showing off just a little bit. I think it is really because I know how lucky I am. You see I was rescued from Alexandra township and I am sure my life would have been very different if I had not been lucky enough to have been brought to DogtownSA. I have to admit I can get a little bit too excited but Justin, one of my current furries is very good at stopping me from getting too silly and I really respect his maturity so quickly stop before there are tears. We all go on walks together with our carers and volunteers and often we are able to go to the play area where we all run around off lead and spend time running and chasing the balls and on and off the agility equipment and having more fun than I ever thought would be possible. Whilst I have been at this wonderful “town” I have learnt some basic obedience skills and enjoy getting lots of yummy treats for doing my exercises which my carers have taught me. I would love to be able to continue learning and training with my forever family and make you very proud of taking me into your home.

MANDY

Oh Mandy well, you came and you gave without taking. But they sent you away. Oh, Mandy well, you kissed us and we stopped you from shaking. And you need a home today. Oh, Mandy! Did you see what I did there I tweaked the Barry Manilow song Mandy to tell you my story. I'm really talented like that. I'm also really good at these good manners everyone keeps talking about around here. When I see that bowl of food approaching or one of those live treat dispensers, my bum hits the floor quicker than you can say sit :) I’ve had to put up with some shady humans before I found my way to Dogtown SA, so I can be a little aloof when I first meet you. Don’t worry; once I trust you I’m all love <3. I’m also a little nervous around other furkids, but my DogtownSA family is all about helping me find new friends and boosting my confidence. If you would like to audition to be my new family you can contact my agent at adoptions@barkingmad.co.za and hopefully they will think you are a good match for me and we can live happily ever after :) So what you waiting for send them an email now :)

CHANCE
3 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.

JOCK

Last updated on Monday, May 26 2014
“Good day old chaps Lord Jock of Dogtown here, pleased to make your acquaintance. No barbaric bundu-bashing for me I’m afraid. The wild wonders of the world are far too dangerous for folly. Perhaps I could interest you in joining me on long leisurely walks, fine food and a lifetime of loyalty and companionship. Those are the true ingredients of adventure.” Our Lord Jock doesn’t dream of wild adventures on the untamed African savannah; after a life scavenging for scraps he’s decided he’s seen enough quite enough of the wild wonders of the world. Like many that have seen the harsh side of life, Jock can be slow to trust new four-legged and human friends, but once a friend always a friend is Jock’s motto. Jock is looking to live the quiet life away from the hype of young children and kitty cats. All he needs now is the special family to love him forever. Could that be you?

“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.

BOBBY

Last updated on Thursday, May 15 2014
“They call me ‘Bobby the Kid’ round these parts: furry outlaw that lives on the fringes of fun *wink wink*. As a graduate of the school of hard knocks, I’ve seen the dark side of life, and after arriving at DogtownSA I sure aint looking back. I may be a little rough round the edges, and walk with a bit of limp, but the humans here say that’s just part of my swagger. I may have started from the bottom, but things sure are looking up. These humans keep reminding me that I’m master of my destiny” After having to fend for himself on the streets and mend a broken leg without veterinary help, Bobby finally found his way to love and support here at DogtownSA. While he has a lifelong limp, joint support supplements and plenty of DogtownSA love and support ensure that this furry doesn’t miss out on any of the fun. With a keen eye for tomfoolery and mischief, Bobby loves woofing around and is always up for a game with the other pooches here at DogtownSA. After a rough start, Bobby is learning everyday just how awesome humans can be (he thinks they are just too easy to con out of yummy treats, all he needs to do is sit ?) With a little patience, love and guidance Bobby is destined for great things. Are you ready for this furry bandit to steal your heart?

“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.

DAISY

Last updated on Wednesday, May 28 2014
Would you like to come home to a lively medium-sized four legged “gal” with a smile on her face from ear to ear, a body that wriggles with excitement and wagging tail that just doesn’t stop – then Daisy is for you! She would just love to be your “one and only” and will be up and ready to go with you on your early morning jog around the houses or a run in the park. Her energy and enthusiasm will get you going on the road even if you are feeling a little sluggish at first. Then, when you come home and are invigorated ready for a healthy breakfast, she will be waiting to eat hers beside you and take great delight in showing you just how clever she is when you give her “her brekkie” in one of those brain teaser food puzzles that are available for such a bright lady as our “Daisy”. She is one of DogtownSA’s most talented furkids when it comes to solving these food puzzles and will excel in showing you her skill and intelligence of deciphering these super duper dog-toys. She will wriggle and preen in front of you when she has done and be waiting for many cuddles and kisses as her reward for being such a “clever gal”. You will get lots of kisses in return and Daisy will just keep on smiling and wagging that her tail, in anticipation of your next adventure together. Daisy will flourish in a home where she is loved and cared for as an only child and in return will bring you endless days of complete happiness.

SCARLETT

Last updated on Tuesday, May 20 2014
Nothing like a little karaoke to get everyone in the mood, everyone sing along now (Don’t be shy you know how it goes :) Scarlett you light up our world like nobody else They way that you skip and hop makes us smile and cheer But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell, You don't know, oh, oh, You don't know you're beautiful, If only you saw what we can see, You'd understand why we love you desperately, Right now we’re looking at you and we can't believe, You don't know,oh, oh. You don't know you're beautiful We can’t get enough of telling our demure Scarlett how awesome she is (though Scarlett has commented that we shouldn’t quit our day jobs and leave the crooning to lads of One Direction, cheeky bum). While Scarlett takes a little while to warm up to new humans and four legged friends, beneath her coy exterior is a playful soul that loves to cuddle. While we all keep singing Scarlett’s praises here at DogtownSA we hope somewhere out there is a patient furry friend and a warm human lap looking for the perfect lady to share in new life of cuddles, kisses and companionship. Could that be with you?

GIZMO
11 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, Oct 14 2014
Hi guys my name is Gizmo and I am a very special little furry “gadget” (hehehehe), cos I always used to come and go as I pleased and thought I was quite the Scarlet Pimpernel. You see for quite a long time I was living on a lady’s property where I had shelter and she gave me food but because I am rather an elusive little fella I felt much happier sleeping outside and being able to come and go as I pleased. Then one day another human came to the house and boy oh boy, did my life change from then on. This person was coaxing me with really yummy tidbits and had such a nice voice and I knew he was trying to get me to come to him and even though I tried my hardest to resist, he was too persuasive. Yes sireeeee, believe it or not I finally relented and allowed him to take me with him in his car. We soon arrived at this amazing place called DogtownSA and not in my wildest dreams did I realize what a great choice this would turn out to be. I was given a comfy place to sleep with lots of blankets and I could snuggle right inside so nobody could see me and I was given more yummy food. I was allowed to walk in and around my little garden and every day I had people coming to talk to me. First it was through the fence cos to begin with I was rather apprehensive to come out and chat but they always left lots of yummy things for me and so many toys. Then, as time went on I felt more and more relaxed and started to come and greet these guys. They come very regularly and sit in my garden with me and I like to run around them and bark and smile a lot at them. I love licking their fingers when they have liver treats with them and I seem to make they giggle a lot when I smile at them. I have very pretty ears that are all feathery and I even let them touch them sometimes but not for very long yet. I know my carers are letting me get used to things at my own pace and I am almost ready for them to give me a tickle or two. I get quite jealous when I see them touching and tickling the furlady that lives next to me cos she so enjoys all their attention and from what she has told me, it is really very soothing being touched. These carers here are very gentle and treat all us furkids so well. Sheba, that is the furlady’s name, and I have a small fence between us and she tells me a lot about how she started off being so shy and very nervous and how her life has changed since she has been at DogtownSA. She goes out for regular walks and loves being able to sniff all the special smells and chew the grass. I am pretty sure that I will be going on walks soon but my carers are letting me get used to my routine a little longer before venturing outside – cos I must say – at times I still feel a little uncertain of the world out there. Even though I have spent so much time living and sleeping outside I really do like my lovely warm little house and feeling safe and secure. So guys and gals out there my dream is to find my own forever family who would like to have a little “Gizmo” in their lives. We could cuddle up and I will be their best friend and companion and together we could have many years of fun and happiness.

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?

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.

I was born into a mafia family, and my earliest days were spent being tied up on a very short chain, with no shade or shelter, regular food or water. A wonderful lady saved me and sent me off to DogTown under the Animal Rescue Witness Protection Program I am a very loving boy and have SO MUCH to offer the right person. I love walking and am very well behaved when out walking, I don’t pull, or shove or even bark. I just wanna have fun! I enjoy doing all my training and can sit, down, roll over, crawl and climb up onto a bench. I play fetch, to humour humans, but I prefer a good ear rub and love time to anything else. I have to learn some more thing about how to play with people, as sometimes I forget and get a little carried away, but I am learning fast! I am healthy and happy, and very kind, full of life, love and always up for a human/dog moment!

This goofball tends to get a little caught up in the moment: he tries experiencing everything life has to offer all at once! After a life of neglect we can hardly blame his enthusiasm. Here at DogtownSA Butch has been learning to take a more laidback approach to life: long walks, laughs with friends and leisurely meals are the order of the day.

I kept the dog for as long as possible but my new place doesn't allow dogs so by having him here I am already pushing my limits. Loftus is a bit bigger that a jack russel, 2years old. Has been sterilized, has such an amazing personality and is very friendly. He gets along well with other pets and adapts easily. He is extremely friendly and loved kids as well. Loftus doesn't bark much only when needed. He doesn't destroy a garden and is house trained. He's crazy about a tennis ball and is so full of energy. I am located in centurion and would like to find him a good home- esp one with friends.

Dog Town
LOCATION - CAPE TOWN, Monte Vista (Western Cape) Lost on Dec 07, 2014 Shelly is a small dog, about knee hight. She is mostly grey, and sometimes we call her jakkals (as she can look like one when ears upright). She has a nice thick tail mostly black. Shelly can be scared sometimes of noise but she is very loving. Shelly's upper and lower gums don't "match", and then a small piece of her tongue will stick out. If you pet her, she turns on her back lying open legs ... LOL... She is about 1 1/2 years old. My daughter found her with people whom didn't want her, and she had almost no hair. Now Shelly has a beautiful fur, different colors (mostly grey), but it is a thick layer. At the back it looks like her fur is curling a bit. We are not sure what breed she has. She sometimes look like a yorkie from far (but too big for one), and she might have some terrier in her too.

There’s an Amy on my stoep!
by Luke

 Amy was found abandoned in August 2010, aimlessly wandering around with no clue where she was or how to find her way home. It is presumed her previous owners no longer wanted and dumped her on the side of the road. Amy was picked up by a kind samaritan and brought to DogtownSA; she was very wary of people and snapped and growled when she was approached or touched – this lady needed to be rehabilitated and her trust in humanity restored.

PET TIP
CHEWING
Chewing is a normal and natural thing for young puppies to do and it’s needed to maintain the health of your dog’s teeth. To dogs all objects are possible chew toys. Dogs also chew to relieve anxiety and boredom. After all there are only so many things pup can do to keep him or herself entertained, while you are not around.

When a pup lives with a human, it is the human’s job to teach him what’s OK to chew and what’s not OK to chew.
Chew training a puppy usually takes 1-3 months, and there may be times you can’t actively supervise his activities.

Always set up pup for success, when you are not around and mistakes can happen,
Confine your pup to a comfortable safe area; such as a single room this must contain a comfortable bed, a bowl of water, a doggy toilet (if not yet housetrained), and 6-7 freshly stuffed chew toys. These chew toys must be the only things available to chew.
In this environment your pup is training himself to chew toys and these chew toys will become much more desirable for your dog to chew as opposed to carpets, shoes etc.
We confine pup to prevent your dog from chewing inappropriate items around the house and to maximize the chance of a chew toy habit developing.
Praise, praise, praise each time your pup chews something right. REWARD good behaviour IGNORE bad behaviour.

Your dog will learn to settle down and entertain himself with his chew toys as soon as you leave in the morning, and he will probably search for chew toys when he wakes.

Chew toys should be indestructible and no consumable.
Examples of chew toys: Kongs, sterilized long bones, hooves that can be stuffed with treats.
Squeeze a piece of liver in the small hole of the Kong, fill the rest of the hole with part of his daily meal (if kibble moisten it first) and then put the Kongs in the freezer.
As the food thaws, it starts to fall out and this reinforces your pup to play with the chew toy, which in return will release more food. What fun.
Until your pup is fully chew toy-trained, feed all his meals from chew toys, or hand feed meals as rewards when you notice your dog is chewing a chew toy.

If a mistake ever happens, it’s your fault. Don’t shout at the dog especially if he is no longer chewing your new Jimmy Choo he will not relate your ranting to the new chew toy he found on the floor.
All he’ll learn is “when you come home, I get punished.”  Making him more anxious and more likely to chew even more worrying about your arrival home.
If you catch pup in the act of chewing your new shoes, offer him a yummy chew toy in exchange for the shoe. This will also teach pup to release stuff you ask him for. If you just snatch the shoe off pup he will learn that when he sees you approaching while he is chewing down on his new found toy, you are going to take away his toy and fun and he will learn to run away or even worse develop a chewing habit in private.
Happy Training.
