DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
ANNIE
1 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.

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?

SOX
3 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, May 20 2014
My name is Sox and I am one of the mature residents at DogtownSA. My start in life was very unhappy where my first 3 years were spent in a factory yard, where I had very limited contact with humans and none with other dogs. I was just left to my own devices and had to find ways of keeping myself entertained. My “owners” finally abandoned both the factory and myself and I was sent to a shelter in Hillcrest where my existence marginally improved with a little more contact and love from humans. This all changed when, by default, I went to live at DogtownSA. Here the humans showered me with love and attention and even allowed me to spend time with other dogs. I must confess though, I am not too keen on males or dogs bigger than myself but I can learn to get along with smaller lady furkids. I am also not too keen on cats as they remind me of my unhappy past in the factory yard. I now regularly go on walks wearing a harness, which is much more comfortable, as I do suffer from a skin condition, which is being well kept under control by my amazing DogtownSA family. When we go on these walks my carer stops and explains the difference between good and bad behavior. I really enjoy these stops as I get lots of yummy treats and cuddles when I master the exercises. These were things that I was never taught when I was younger, living a sad life in the factory. I must also confess one thing that I am finding difficult to master is my Houdini instinct to jump out of my run and go and visit these kind DogtownSA people who give me so much love and attention. I have found that wagging my stumpy tail and wiggling my bum gets me lots of cuddles as well from the numerous volunteers that like to sit with me and they brush me gently which I do so adore. What I am really longing for is a forever home where my new family will continue teaching and loving me and in return I will give them all the affection my little wiggly waggly body can offer.

MISHKA

Last updated on Monday, May 05 2014
Mishka is a very special gal who loves to be cuddled and made a fuss of. When it is bedtime you must make sure she is comfortable in her house with her blankets and give her lots of kisses to send her off to sleep. In return she will give you such a big smile and return your affection double fold with her special kisses. Her previous family fell on hard times and had to rehome her nevertheless she has settled in very well but every night when she snuggles down to sleep she does send out her wishes for a forever family to come along and meet her. She enjoys her walks with her caregiver and on certain days they go and sit under a shady tree just catching the breeze and chilling together * Unable to adopt Mishka?

BARNEY

Last updated on Monday, Jun 23 2014
My name is Barney and I am one of the “older” residents at the Shady Pines Village at DogtownSA . My journey was been somewhat bumpy and unpredictable but a very dear lady in the same category as me an “octogenarian” hehehe!!! found me living a somewhat depressed life at a shelter. She desperately tried to find me a home but unfortunately the younger “furchildren” that they wanted me to shack up with did not have the same interests as myself. It was then that she decided (the kind lady that is), to bring me to the Shady Pines village at DogtownSA. This was a whole new experience for me and the love and attention that I experienced was simply awesome. Here they took into consideration my advanced years and did not try to make me do anything that I couldn’t manage. I had the privilege of living with an older “furlady” but sadly she “flew over the rainbow” not long after we met. I was very sad but my carers gave me lots of love to help me get over my loss. I still enjoy my walks, and when we go out on our regular walks I am allowed to dictate the pace and on my return having thoroughly enjoyed myself I am not too exhausted. I can then relax in my 5-Star accommodation which includes large comfortable cushions and a very cosy wooden house. I am also very fortunate to be in a prime position to observe all the comings and goings at this wonderful place and as such all the carers and volunteers make a huge fuss of me as they arrive. Although I am older I still have a lot to offer in love and friendship and my dream is to find a forever home where I can give back all my loyalty and affection.

WILL

Last updated on Thursday, Jun 12 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?

GEMMA

Last updated on Tuesday, Jun 17 2014
“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you.” I bet you all know this song from the Walt Disney movie Pinocchio. This is my favourite song and every night after my supper at my special Hotel DogtownSA I sit outside on my little verandah and look up at the stars and wish for my forever home to come true. My name is Gemma and, I am told, a very pretty little girl with a smile that will catch your eye, who was left on a main road to fend for myself. Luckily I was rescued and taken to a home for the night and given food and water. The next day part of my dream came true as I was brought to Hotel DogtownSA. This is a very special place with very caring people who look after little” furries” like me that have been abandoned. They take such good care of me giving me really yummy food and taking me out on walks. My best is when we go to a large play area where I can run around, play and jump up and down on lots of jumps and agility equipment and let off steam until I am really exhausted. I am very energetic and would love to have a family who would like to adopt me and together we could play lots of games and go to doggy school where I will continue to learn more obedience skills and make you very proud. Please come and meet me so that my wish upon a star can come true.

STEVE

Last updated on Tuesday, Jun 17 2014
Hiya. My name is Stevie. Even though I do not have the musical skills of Stevie Wonder I can sit on your lap or snuggle up next to you and tell you lots of stories. You see I am a senior bull terrier who lives in the Shady Pines Village at Hotel DogtownSA. I was left outside a complex and hid under the water meter because I was very scared and very hot and this was the only bit of shade I could find. A kind lady saw me and left me a bowl of water and food and luckily for me, she made a call to this very special place called DogtownSA for help. Late in the afternoon two very gentle people came and encouraged me to get in their vehicle and together we travelled to this hotel. I was very nervous at first as I had no idea what was going to happen to me. But, very quickly, and with the encouragement of these gentle people, I realized that I was very lucky to have come to this place. I have been given a comfortable “bed” called a “crate bed” which is left in my Wendy house. Each day I can lie in my crate with the door open and look out over the whole Town. I unfortunately have a number of medical issues which are common in us old “furries” but my caregiver and the hotel staff takes special care of my needs and make sure that I receive regular check-ups from a very extraordinary doggy doctor. I love going on my regular walks but when it is warm I do like to take my time and have the occasional break under a shady tree and then if I give my carer my special look, guess what, I get extra treats and cuddles. If you too have time to spend sitting and watching the world go by a little more slowly, I would be more than happy to be at your side as your loyal forever companion.

CHANCE

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.

TARZAN

Last updated on Tuesday, Jul 22 2014
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?

ARCHER
13 of 15
Last updated on Friday, Jul 25 2014
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!

I look after my sister here at DogtownSA so I'm a busy man.I don't remember much before coming to the centre but apparently I was a stud. I tell the ladies here I know I'm a stud but they just giggle maybe I don't understand the word right. Anyhoo I'm hoping for a home where my sis and I can go together as we have really helped each other after we we're abandoned. You know what family is like. You can't live with them and you can't live without them. I hear my sister say a prayer every night that a family will come for both of us and we will be together forever <3 Bless, she is too cute sometimes.Even though I act like the tough guy around town, I really do have a soft spot for her.

I started out life thinking people were mean, because the man that lived next door to my first mum wasn’t very nice to me. He hit me with a pole and hurt my leg. My best friend in the whole world, Yvette, kept me company when I was sore, and I growled at people to keep them away. When my mum’s boss heard about me, she came to rescue me. I was fixed up and the pain in my leg went away and I started to learn to trust my caregiver, Picane, because he was so nice to me. Soon, my bestie was to join me and I realised that I can be happy again! I am so handsome, I look like those famous “Fox Hounds” you see in paintings or running with the horses. I love treats and I am so easy to please. I enjoy people now, and like playing and being touched. Sometimes I get so excited that I jump up, but I am trying really hard to be a good boy and not mess up anyone's clothes and stuff. My trainer says that is important, so I try quite hard. I don’t get cross with other dogs ever, because I am just so grateful to have a second chance at having a loving life. I can wait. I am patient.

Dog Town

Hi Everyone,

 

This is a plea to anyone in Gauteng that is willing to foster young and old, large and small dogs in Gauteng.

These animals have been cooped up in a kennel for many months and my heart aches when I see all those faces looking at me through the fence.

The majority of our dogs are large breeds and they need to have a chance to be free and have space to move and run and play.

 

If you think it is sad for you to look into these cages, imagine how they are feeling looking out.

 

If you feel that you are able to foster a dog, that you can afford to look after him, care for him, feed him, and if you have the space for him in your yard

and can offer him a special temporary home please contact me on Trix4Animals@gmail.comv

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
JUMPING UP
The best way to stop puppy jumping is to simply ignore him when he does.  Turn your back to him fold your arms and stand still until he has fours paws on the ground. Then quickly get down to his level and give him lots of praise and rewards if he jumps up again, stand up and turn away until he stops jumping, and repeat. We are rewarding the desired behaviour and ignoring the bad behaviour. We also need to make sure that all people who come into contact with pup know this is what is to be done when pup jumps otherwise some unsuspecting visitor could unknowingly be undoing all your hard work by patting the dog or telling him to get off, both of these are rewarding the dog as he is getting the attention he seeks

The following exercises are also very effective for the jumping dog:
Put your puppy on a lead and tie the end securely to a doorknob.  
Make sure you have yummy treats with you and from a short distance move towards the puppy with excitement.  As soon as he jumps up, stop moving towards him and take a step backwards away from the pup.  As soon as he stops jumping move towards him again. Continue this approach until you can get all the way to the pup and give him a cuddle without jumping lots of praise and rewards from that position, moving back again if he jumps up in excitement.   
You could also do this exercise but you are the door know and you have another person approach the dog, as above once the person gets all the way to your dog without him jumping give him lots of praise and rewards.
This method will also teach him how to greet people, and to pay attention to you rather than them.
If you can catch your dog before he is about to launch himself off the ground give him something else to do like sit. But only if it’s before his paws have left the floor.
Happy Training.
