Dogs for Adoption


This hunk of love really really wants to be your best friend. He is a loving and loyal boy to the people he bonds with and would quite happily settle into life as a lap dog (he doesn’t know he is a little bit big for that though!).

Otter does need a bit of an extra special home. He is absolutely not suited to a home with cats or chickens or anything small and furry! Although Otter can be social with other dogs he still has a bit of a way to go before he would feel comfortable living with another dog, so an only dog home it is for him. He also needs a bit of time to warm to strangers and new people/dogs coming into his life.

Otter has lived in a couple of homes that unfortunately didn’t work out, so he has spent a lot of his life at the shelter and there is still some work to be done for him to gain confidence in the big wide world. We have had a wonderful volunteer working with him over the past few months and he is making great progress, and we now feel it’s a good time to look for that extra special home that can continue to work with Otter to gain more confidence.

Otter is looking for a home:
with kind, loving, patient and experienced dog owner/s.
without children
with secure fencing
where he can continue training and have some life experiences
where he can have fun (he loves to run and play fetch)
where he will get the love he deserves

In return Otter will be your best friend and love you back tenfold (did we mention he gives the biggest sloppiest kisses to his besties)

Otter is almost 3 years old and currently at HUHA Otaki – if you think you could offer Otter the home he needs and wants, or would like more info please call us during the day to discuss on 04 3923232 or drop and email to enquire.huha@gmail.com
