DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
ALEXIS
1 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Jun 02 2014
“Shhhh…. I better not woof too loud this line may be bugged. If you’re looking for the perfect hiding place for those yummy doggie biscuits, I suggest under the blankets in my pretty purple house. Better not chat too long in case they trace the call: make the drop at Dogtown SA, Blue Hills. Code name: Midnight snack. Agent Alex over and out.” Alexis is our resident conspiracy theorist at DogtownSA. Life before DogtownSA was a bit rough and Alex takes a somewhat skeptical view of world. At DogtownSA we have been gentle coaxing Alex into the idea that world isn’t out to get her. DogtownSA’s awesome agents of fun and learning have managed to convince Alex that her tail is not in fact a sordid serpent to be chased and little by little Alex is growing in confidence everyday. While this paranoid android needs a little more time with her family at DogtownSA she sure would appreciate you smuggling some funds and sponsoring her stay at DogtownSA.

GEORGE

Last updated on Monday, Jun 23 2014
Hiya humans. I am George. I started out as a bit of a free spirit, kinda wandering around on my own for a bit. I never really knew my parents and had to make a lot of choices. Some where good and some not so great. I landed up quite lost, sad and hungry. One day, a rather nice lady took me home, told me I should get off the streets and make a life for myself. Boy did I get spoiled. I kind of enjoyed it, but the rehab I needed required a bit more time to myself, to ponder what it is that I want from life. I am still working through a few more things, but I am doing really well. I have some really good buddies here at the centre and I play - a LOT. I LOVE LOVE LOVE walking. I also love biccies. I am a bit fussy about my food, and i eat super slowly because I need to keep checking that I am still here and ok. I really like my human friends. I am not so sure of some of the things that humans do though - like brushing, and nail clipping. Do you know if thats safe or not? I am not sure. EVERYONE keeps telling me its fine, but you know - you cant take too many chances. My friend Patrick gets a little annoyed sometimes, he is like "Geoooooorge.......you are being sillllleeeeeee", but I just need a little more time. I am however ready to start meeting some new people who would be very patient with me, as I will repay you with lotsa love! Walking is my favourite and if people come to walk me and be my friend I will be sooooooo happy. See you soon! (Im the prettiest boy on the block!)

PRINCESS
3 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Jun 02 2014
My name is Princess and I consider myself one of the luckiest furkids on the block. You see when I was younger I used to dream of living in a place where I would be given yummy food and treats, meet people who would treat me with kindness and have furry friends to play with and even be able to go on walks together. Unfortunately this was completely opposite to my real life but then suddenly my Fairy Godmother came along and guess what my dream came true!!!!! It all happened after I had been hurt by one of those strange things that travel fast on the roads and somebody took me to a place where I was given help for my very sore wounds on my leg and because this place could only keep me for a short time, they called a very special “Doggy hotel” called DogtownSA to see if they had any vacancies. My luck was really changing because they did and I was taken there and my wishes started to come true. I now know what the name Princess means cos I have been treated like one ever since I arrived!!!! I have a great variety of food and treats and live with a very spunky little Jack Russell called Bolt and we run around our garden, chasing the ball and having many games during the day. Even though my leg gets a little stiff sometimes in the cooler mornings and evenings, I can still give him a good run for his money chasing the ball, so he has to be very quicker to get there first. The last part of my dream that I believe is waiting for me, just around the corner, would be to live in a “forever” home with a family who will give me their love and affection and if they have a fellow furkid or even two, we could all live together.

BOLT

Last updated on Monday, Jun 09 2014
Howdy doody my name is Bolt and I would love to find a forever home where I can show off my incredible skills with a ball and we could all play lots of games together. I just love games where I can dribble my ball and then I throw it up in the air and catch it again. But it would be much more fun to have a family to play with me and show me even more tricks to play. I joined the DogtownSA family after being left by my owner who rented a property and moved without taking me with them. There were a number of tenants who came and went but luckily a Good Samaritan saw me living in the courtyard with my Pizza box for warmth and brought me to a loving place called DogtownSA. I must say, initially I was rather wary even suspicious of all the attention I received but my pizza box came with me to keep me company and I very soon I learnt that the human affection was sooooo cool and I loved being cuddled and played with. I also had great tasting food so regularly – I couldn’t believe my luck. I have a huge amount of energy, in fact I have heard my name compared to a Pocket Rocket but you know, when you are such a sporty little fellow like me you need energy cos there are just so many games to play and things to do. I also have a little skip and jump when I run which gives me the edge if I am on your team to catch the ball. I recently had to have an eye removed but my DogtownSA family were so good to me and helped me immediately they saw there was a problem. I was taken to a very special eye hospital to see if they could save my eye but this was not to be. Still, I consider myself extremely lucky cos I just have suuper duuper vision in my one eye and I think that is why I am so good at keeping “my eye in on the ball”!!!! My dream would be to find my forever family who may also have a lady furkid who is pretty easy going, like my current fur-lady who helps to keep me under control when I start getting a little too excited. She is very clever really, even though I won’t tell her, cos when I am getting too “silly” she gives me a look and I know I am pushing my luck. Her name is Princess and “for a girl” she is pretty good at playing games with me. Maybe, if you don’t have a fur-lady she could come too and we would bring you and your family lots of fun and happiness.

“Bonsoir je m'appelle Coco, for those of you who don’t parlez vous Français, you may address me as Mademoiselle Coco. I live by the creed of my glorious namesake Coco Chanel: ‘In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.’ “ Our enigmatic diva Coco is not bound by cuddly canine stereotypes, while she loves floating through the doggie social scene and charming the four-legged furry gents of DogtownSA with her elegant mystique, Coco is very discerning about the humans she allows into her inner circle. Coco isn’t quite ready to relinquish her role as Madamoiselle of DogtownSA; she is still in need of some DogtownSA finishing school finesse. Every diva needs her entourage and fans; Coco would sure love for you to sponsor her stay at DogtownSA. After all she needs to be kept in the style and comfort to which she is accustomed until she is ready to find a forever family to call her own. The DogtownSA team sends their gratitude in advance in behalf of this cheeky furkid!

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?

ANGEL
10 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.

SPARTACUS
11 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Jun 02 2014
My name is Spartacus and I am very proud to have been given this name. You see I had the unfortunate experience of being hit by a vehicle that didn’t stop and left me in a very bad way but my determination and strength, just like the gladiator Spartacus, proved too strong for even this type of misfortune to hold me back. I now have very sexy scares on my face to show off and I have to tell you that the “gals” at DogtownSA give me very adoring looks when I go passed their runs with my human carers and volunteers on our way out for walks. I have quite a fan club and I know that some of my fellow furries at DogtownSA are jealous of my special attributes. But I must say I do have a very soft side as well and love being made a fuss of and given cuddles and kisses!!!!! When my carers and volunteers come to see me they are very generous with yummy treats and best of all, they love brushing my thick coat. I absolutely adore this and will let them brush my fur for as long as I can persuade them to stay. I give them my “special” look!!! Of course they then tell me just how handsome I am and yes I have to admit it – we men just love having compliments and attention. I currently live with a rather cheeky small “gal” and I have to make sure she does not get into too much trouble cos as you know us Gladiators always protect our gals. However, as much as I love being at DogtownSA my real dream is to be a gladiator in a forever home where I can snuggle up with my own human and be a loyal companion and devoted best friend.

I grew up on a super farm with my mom, dad and two brothers! We all had so much fun… and I used to go and play with the dogs next door too… I am a really friendly furry! My humans couldn’t keep me because we had some differing ideas on how to manage the chickens and geese on the farm. I liked to chase them and bite them. My mom didn’t want to make fences on the farm and so she sent me to DogTown to find a new home without chickens… geese… ducks… or anything like that. Its not my fault, I am not a bad chap, and love dogs, children and even kittens and cats! I used to play with the kittens on the farm… I miss them quite a lot… but I love life! I really am a positive guy … if I could, I would have my own motivational speaking company and make all the dogs with low self images feel better about themselves! Everyone tells me how special I am and I like to have a bit of a kind chat to my neighbour Rusty… we like each other. I love bones… they make me happy. So do hooves. So does food… and of course walkies, lovies and just life. I am really a very special boy with SO MUCH love to give and I always have a huge smile on my face. Do you have space in your life for a happy go-lucky fella like me?

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?

Last updated on Friday, Oct 31 2014
My name is Lola and I am one of the “newbies” at this awesome place called DogtownSA. I have to admit this place is changing my life and I have to keep pinching myself to make sure I am not dreaming. My journey has been very bumpy and many times rather frightening. I came from another rescue centre that tried their best to help me but had limited facilities available. Lucky for me, though, they were able to find me a place at DogtownSA. When I arrived I went into a small little run with a garden and a lovely comfortable place to sleep with lots of blankets so I could snuggle right inside and feel really safe and secure. You see I still feel rather nervous of the outside world but I am learning every day that I don’t have to be fearful any more. I get really yummy food and can walk in and around my little garden when I like and I have a lovely hounder to lie on as well. It is so comfortable and I love rolling on my back on this and kicking my legs in the air. Every day I have some super carers who come and sit and talk to me. First it was through the fence cos in the beginning I did not want to come to close and was rather apprehensive of what might happen but I have realized that they don’t mind if I come out or just sit at the front of my igloo. They are very patient with me. When I do come out they are so pleased and smile a lot at me. It makes me feel very special and I am getting more used to them and have even let them touch me. Each day I watch the other furkids go up and down past my run and they always come back so happy and one of them told me it is because they have been for long walks outside and on some days get to go to a big play area where they can run around off lead. That will be the next step for me but my carers are letting me go at my own pace as I still need to get used to everything going on around me. Although I am not ready just yet to leave this marvelous place, I have a dream that in the not too distant future I will find love and friendship at my very own forever home where I can give back all the love and affection I have been so lucky to get at this very special hotel.

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?

Dog Town
LOCATION - KWAZULU-NATAL, He is almost 100 % recovered, hes still stuck at the vet as nobody has come forward to help him. We have managed to find the owners of the burnt dog. They were well aware that he was in this condition and did not treat him for 3 weeks. They said that they can't treat him and handed him over to us. We have since then reported all of this to the SPCA and they are investigating a case of cruelty. Zakumi is 4 years old, he is a boerbul cross husky. A gentle giant who loved playing despite his burnt back, hurt eye and injured knee. Zakumi is a big doggy and is currently at the vet in a cage receiving treatment. He won't be able to stay there as its too small for him. We need a foster home for him to recover in by the end of today. This boy has been through so much and still persevered. Let us now help him by finding a space in our homes and hearts and fostering him for a few nights. Please contact on 0730054275/ neeri@phoenixanimalcare.org.za

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.
