DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
SCARLETT
1 of 15
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?

Last updated on Wednesday, Oct 22 2014
My name is Will. I am Grace's big brother. My great grand-dad was a Labrador, and I have inherited some of his great looks, making me handsome - if I may say so myself - and strong. I really enjoy games when food is involved. I don't know what it is about food ..... the aroma, the texture.....the variety - oh its all so yummy!!! My trainer says I should give up being a dog and become a chef! I would be so good at it - I am clever too, so learning all the fancy names for food would be easy-peasy. I can sit, down, stay, and find hidden food - its my brilliant sense of smell. I can even tell if its a piece of dog kibble or polony from 10 metres! I like people - I just need a little bit more practice with being touched all over - I'm just a bit shy sometimes. My sister has taught me good housekeeping, so I keep my bed and toys clean and neat. I am hoping that the perfect family will come and fall in love with me and my lil sis Grace, could that possibly be you?

ANGEL
3 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, Jul 22 2014
Hello all you wonderful peeps out there, my name is Angel and I believe that my name has brought me incredible luck. You see, just when I thought my life as a stray, having to scavenge for food and be careful of where I laid my furhead down to sleep was not going to change, my very own special Angel must have seen my plight and sent a caring human to help me. Yes sireeee, this human managed to get me a booking at Hotel DogtownSA which is an amazing “dog guesthouse” for furries like me. I honestly know I am one of the luckiest furries in the world! In fact, every day I give myself a shake to make sure I am not dreaming. I have awesome carers who look after me and spoil me every day. They come and see me very often and give me really yummy food and talk to me and play with me. I also have lots of toys that I can chew and not get scolded as well as peanut hooves and furry ice lollies to lick during the day. When my carers and volunteers come and sit with me I roll over and manage to coax them into giving me lots of tummy rubs which I loooovvve so much. It makes me feel so warm and content and I know they are very busy, but I try and get them to stay as long as possible so persuade them with lots of licks and kisses. Another one of my treats is being taken out on regular walks. My carer puts a comfortable harness and lead on me and off we go and at certain stages en route we stop and have treats and cuddles. I get lots of really yummy treats as well cos at these times I am asked to do sits and downs and the quicker I managed to do the exercises, the more treats I am given . On the walk I love smelling all the interesting scents along the way and at times get so involved that I want to get to the next one rather too quickly and pull on the lead. So I am still learning that this is not the most desirable behavior but with the special training I am receiving from my gentle carer I am slowing down my pace a tad or two and learning to walk much more calmly at my carer’s side. I must say that whilst learning these new skills we also get days when we go to the large play area where I can run around without my lead, play and jump up and down on lots of jumps and agility equipment and let off steam until I am really exhausted. I have had times in this play area where I have met some of the other furries who also stay at this hotel and we have great times together. I have heard it said that one of them may soon become my roomy as I do so love playing games. So all you awesome peeps out there if you are a family who would like to adopt me and maybe have a furkid who loves to play and romp who is looking for a pretty furkid, we could get together. We could all go to doggy school and continue to learn more obedience skills . I will promise to make you very proud of me and be your forever special angel to lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every single day.

BOBBY

Last updated on Thursday, Oct 23 2014
My name is Bobby. I was rescued by a lovely lady called who has helped me SO much because she sent me to DogTown SA and I am learning all sorts of things here. My trainer tells me I must have Border Collie in me because I act like one sometimes. I like to play “fetch” and I love water too! I LOVE water! I like to play with water a LOT! Hose pipes, water bowls – I am pretty sure that I will love swimming…..I wish I could go to the sea! My trainer says I would love to play in the waves. I have learnt to sit very well and have good manners. I get along with almost all the dogs I meet, I don’t like being alone, so I make sure that I make friends and stay friends, so I don’t get possessive over my food or toys. I am also very gentle with people. Sometimes I jump up – but only for a hug. I adore those and will spend ages just snuggling into your arms. I am learning to be crate trained – how clever is THAT! This means that I will always be safe – and secure – whether I have to travel, go on holiday ( I can dream!) or just so that I can get to munch on a bone from time to time. I walk nicely on a lead too just by the way and I am easy to groom and keep shiny! I’d LOVE my own home = with some other animals, kids and hopefully some toys and a pond!

ANNIE
5 of 15
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.

RUSTY
6 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, Oct 14 2014
My name is Rusty and I came to DogtownSA when unfortunately my previous owners had to move into a flat and had no space for me. Luckily for me my owners were able to find a new place for me to live at called DogtownSA and this has turned out to be a much better place than I could have wished for. I must say, in the beginning I was rather wary as well as a little suspicious of all the attention I started receiving but soon learnt that this was all part of the care and rehabilitation programme that was to be implemented for me to help me to find my forever family in the future. One of the bestest treats is being taken out for long walks and regularly going to a large play area where I was able to run around off lead, play ball and games with my carer. I also practice and show off my obedience skills that I am learning, as well as going over agility equipment and it is such fun being able to do this and when I do these exercises I get spoilt with yummy treats and cuddles which I am love. There are times as well when I get to meet other furries in the play area and that is also great fun. I just have to remember not to be too excited at first and jump too high for joy so I am learning to take the games a wee bit slower until the other furries get used to my playful ways. I really do love being at DogtownSA and being treated so well 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.

“Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair… Licks and love Barking Madders, spunky punk princess Karma rocking out with ya! I may hail from the Mother City, but since making the trek up to Jozi, I’m loving the buzz of the big City of Gold. Life is for living and I just love jamming with my roomie Clawd or showing-off some mad skills with my ball in the DogtownSA play-area. The only way life could get any more epic, was if I found a forever family to sign me up and love me for life.” Our Karma chameleon has been on a roller-coaster rescue journey: from severe neglect and abuse to the kick-ass lovable chicka she is today. This little rocker adores the rough and tumble with the four-legged boys of DogtownSA almost as much as she does belly rubs and cuddles. Karma’s all the woman you’ll ever need and she dreams of being only four-legged ladylove in her new pimped out pad. Karma’s ready to rock and roll are you?

I am often over looked as I have a slightly alternative hair style, but I tell ya, you don’t know what you are missing! Not only am I super bright, loving and really gentle at heart, but I am ready to fit right into your life! I am easy going, I get along with most other dogs, although I can look very fierce through the fence, I am actually really brilliant at playing and living with dogs. I am really good too, you can take my food away, groom me, touch me all over, and I have great manners all round. I am a super boy, a real all rounder, according to my trainer.

Hi there peeps out there – my name is Megan and I’m not sure if you know but that is a very popular Welsh name for girls. I am sorry to say I don’t have the lovely singing voice that is associated with the Welsh people but I will be happy to make up for it with my love and attention that I have an abundance of bubbling inside of me for my forever family. I used to live at another rescue centre and was sad because I never had many humans coming to visit me and I was never given the chance to show off my very attractive features, cos I have heard it said that I am rather attractive looking furry!!! (Hehehe) Then suddenly, out of the blue a miracle happened and I was brought to this very special 5 star hotel called DogtownSA. To begin with I had no idea of what to expect and was very nervous and apprehensive of what the future might hold for me but as I settled in I knew I was going to be safe. Now I have very special carers who come and talk to me, sit with me and best of all take me for walks. I get so excited that I find it difficult to contain myself and have to do lots of extra jumps for joy in my run just to show off otherwise I think I will burst with happiness. I know I have to control this and my carers are being very gentle with me so that I learn how to behave correctly. They give me suuuppper doopper treats for being calmer and I really do like them so I am making good progress. My carers are also helping me to learn that pulling is not a desirable behavior while out walking but I am really trying to walk at heel and understand that all the lovely smells and things that I want to investigate soooo quickly are not going to disappear and by taking it a little slower and with the good instruction I am receiving I will soon be happily trotting along at my walker’s side. I also get a huge reward for this from my carers which is a yummy handful of treats so 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 rather big looking egg-shaped device and I have great fun getting all my food out of the holes at each end. I love these types of toys and have great fun pushing it all over my little garden. My dream is to once again live in a forever home with a family, where I would be their only furkid and I can lavish all my love and attention on them and show them the new found skills I have learnt at DogtownSA.

ZIMBI
11 of 15
Last updated on Wednesday, Jul 09 2014
Hello my name is Zimbi, the humans sometimes call me Zimbi Zim Zim which sounds really cool too, I am currently living with a really kind foster family. You see when I was surrendered to Dogtown way back when,I had a bit of a big tummy which just kept growing and growing so the humans took me to the doggy-doctor who said I was going to be a mommy. I must admit I was very scared when I heard the news but I was quickly taken to this 5 star foster home where I could relax and prepare for the lil ones. When I arrived I met some other dogs and made plenty new friends but I didn’t really know how to play with anybody yet and just ended up lying on top of everybody as soon as the game started, but I figured it out quickly ;) One afternoon it all happened and I had 7 little puppies, somehow they all looked different, yikes! It was awesome to watch them grow up but they eventually grew up into little terrorists and started chasing me every time I came to say hello. When they grew up and got too big for the house they went to Hotel Dogtown where they were all adopted into loving homes, I am indeed a proud momma! Somehow I just ended up staying in my foster home (sneaky sneaky heheh) I do miss my babbas but the other dogs do keep me busy by teaching me how to play games and chase them around. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes but my awesome foster dad has started taking me along on rides in a little green beetle (which I think is pretty cool) and sometimes we visit Hotel Dogtown and everybody comes to say hello and give me lots of delicious treats. I must admit, the more we go on car rides... the more I enjoy it. One time we went to a shopping centre which at first was really scary but after a very nice lady came to say hello to me, I felt much better :) Soon I'll be able to go to my very own forever home (which I really look forward to). If you think you have what it takes to give me a perfect, calm, happy home, why not contact the humans at Dogtown and arrange to meet me, you wont be disappointed :)

BUDDY

Last updated on Tuesday, Sep 02 2014
“Buuuddy” as we call this little “Star”, is one of our longest residents at DogtownSA. When he was a little “Bud” (a littlie) very naughty kids put a rope around his neck and swung him around. Well, as you can imagine, that takes a great deal of effort to get over. But our “Star” is very resilient. He still doesn’t like anything being put near or around his neck but the caregivers are constantly encouraging him to conquer his uncertainties. Knowing all this our little “Star” has an amazing ability to help raise all the delinquent puppies that come to DogtownSA. He teaches them all the good doggie manners that the kids he knew never had, so that these puppies will be ready to go to their forever homes with no bad habits. Buddy is looking for a very special family that will give him time to grow and gain more confidence. His dream is to live with this family and be able to run around their garden, play with their other dogs and know that he will never be hurt again, could that be 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.

KEITH & BIANCA

Last updated on Monday, Nov 17 2014
I have a question for all you amazing peeps out there – how would you like to have a handsome and happy (what a mixture!!!) four-legged furrie companion and his special furlady, whose tails are always wagging and ready at the drop of a “lead” to go on walks, whenever you want to go or, if you prefer, just to sit with you and keep you company? Well Bianca and I am your furries. My name is Keith and I am waiting for you at DogtownSA. I may not be quite as famous as Keith Richards and don’t have his musical skills but I can certainly try and howl out a tune or two for you. Nowadays I am such a happy guy and want to tell everybody about the angels Bianca and I have met at this special Hotel called DogtownSA. You see previously Bianca, and I were being treated badly and having to keep out of the way of humans but that has all changed and with the wonderful help of the carers at DogtownSA we have both learnt to trust and live life to the fullest again. We don’t have to hide away and are treated with such care and attention we sometimes think we have visited another planet or special star in the sky. Every day we get spoilt with yummy food and during the day have treats and visits from our special carers and volunteers coming by our house to see us and best of all take out for walks. Our carers come and sit with us and ask us to do little exercises and for that we get treats. How cool is that. Bianca, who is the prettiest furkid ever, is my true love and my dream is that we could both stay together in our forever home. She is still rather shy and takes a while to get to know strangers but she is a bright little girl and knows I will never let her get hurt again. Previously I protected her and made sure she was safe and so we really are a very loving couple and being together will make our dreams come true. I can assure you that the special family who will have us in their home will get soooooooooo much love and attention from us both and never be bored playing with us that we will all have many years of fun and happiness together.

GEORGE

Hi there my name is George – “Little” George according to my carers. I am such a lucky furkid to have come to this suuuper duuuper hotel called DogtownSA. I have been living with a family but they are moving and will not be taking me with them. I didn’t know what was going to happen to me but little did I realize that I had a lucky “star” that decided to shine on me. These great peeps from DogtownSA heard about my plight and came and took me firstly to their very special vet, for a full checkup and vaccinations, which I didn’t know all dogs need to have and then, they found me a very special apartment to live in at their hotel. I am still settling in and getting used to a lot of different things and must admit am rather nervous of some of the peeps when they come by to say “hi” to me cos previously I didn’t meet many great peeps but I do like it when they come and give me great yummy treats. They have such kind voices and lots of smiles when I take the food from them. I am still unsure of being touched, especially around my neck cos it makes me feel very uneasy cos I don’t know what is going to happen to me but I am a resilient little guy and with the help of my carers am learning to conquer my fears. My caregivers are constantly encouraging me to be brave and gradually I know I will overcome these uncertainties. Every day they spend lots of time with me and let me just try and relax and get used to my new routine in my time. You know what – it does get easier every day. So you wonderful peeps out there, I am looking for a very special family that will give me time to grow and gain more confidence. My dream is to live with this family and be able to run around their garden, maybe play with their other dogs and know that I will never have to be afraid of anything again.

Summer Loving

By Karishma

Love is in the air in the rehab section of DogtownSA. The serendipitous pairing of Wendy and Ricky are head-over-heels and enjoying every moment of summer together. From siestas to escape the sun and curling up in their cozy doggie bed to wait out a thunderstorm, for these two furries the world is turning out to be a much happier place to share.

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.
