Dogs for Adoption

We are looking for an extra special home for this gorgeous 2-year-old heading dog.

When Chicken first arrived at HUHA from a farm, he was terribly ill; his immune system had gone bonkers and he was weak and anaemic. But with time, love, great vets and wonderful fosterers, Chicken is up and racing with a bright future ahead. We don’t know if he is just in remission or if his medical glitch has left the building forever, what we do know is that Chicken is ready to take life on head first. His drive to work and please is second to none. This is not a baby you can put in the corner, he is a lifestyle dynamo, a super hero, an action man.

The home we would like to find for Chicken should have other dogs as he has only ever lived in a pack and enjoys the dynamic and the comfort of other dogs. His working instincts are palpable, he is in his happy place zooming around paddocks and taking direction. He needs a human who will further his training and give him the direction he oh so craves, and the praise he so deserves. But we also want him to be a pet, a companion and won’t home him to a kennel and run. This wee ever-ready man needs to be warm and safe and allowed indoors as part of the family. Don’t panic – he has a very good off switch inside and will just curl up and sleep contently.

He’s not the best in cars as he’d quite like to round the traffic up as he looks out the window. But as for hugs you would never find a more gentle, adoring, cuddly boy when he has clocked off for the day.

If you have a lifestyle block, and want a working pet as your right hand man, and are prepared to invest the time and love to work on your partnership … this is your boy xx

Please call 0274416474 or email contact.huha@gmail.com and we will walk you through his adoption process.
