DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
ZIMBI
1 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 :)

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.

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.

ARCHER
5 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!

BOBBY

Last updated on Thursday, May 15 2014
“They call me ‘Bobby the Kid’ round these parts: furry outlaw that lives on the fringes of fun *wink wink*. As a graduate of the school of hard knocks, I’ve seen the dark side of life, and after arriving at DogtownSA I sure aint looking back. I may be a little rough round the edges, and walk with a bit of limp, but the humans here say that’s just part of my swagger. I may have started from the bottom, but things sure are looking up. These humans keep reminding me that I’m master of my destiny” After having to fend for himself on the streets and mend a broken leg without veterinary help, Bobby finally found his way to love and support here at DogtownSA. While he has a lifelong limp, joint support supplements and plenty of DogtownSA love and support ensure that this furry doesn’t miss out on any of the fun. With a keen eye for tomfoolery and mischief, Bobby loves woofing around and is always up for a game with the other pooches here at DogtownSA. After a rough start, Bobby is learning everyday just how awesome humans can be (he thinks they are just too easy to con out of yummy treats, all he needs to do is sit ?) With a little patience, love and guidance Bobby is destined for great things. Are you ready for this furry bandit to steal your heart?

Go on call my agent on adoptions@barkingmad.co.za” Relax, take it eeeeeeeeaaasy is Butch’s mantra here at DogtownSA! This goofball tends to get a little caught up in the moment: he tries experiencing everything life has to offer all at once! After a life of neglect we can hardly blame his enthusiasm. Here at DogtownSA Butch has been learning to take a more laidback approach to life: long walks, laughs with friends and leisurely meals are the order of the day. This handsome fella would make an awesome addition to a furry family (without any felines) you ready to live the good life with our main man Butch?

ROZZIE

Last updated on Monday, Jun 23 2014
My name is Rozzie and I was brought to DogtownSA after a major tragedy in my life when my then loving family were taken away from me in a fatal motor vehicle accident. Arriving at DogtownSA I had no idea of what to expect and was very nervous and apprehensive of what the future might hold for me and how I was going to get over this tragic event in my life. At first I was teamed up with a lovely old fellow called Drex who had also had his own fair share of bad luck and in fact only had 3 legs. He soon warmed to me and in spite of his slight incapacity, we spent many hours romping around our garden. He, along with the humans at DogtownSA, helped me get over my grief. Sadly Drex, due to his age and ill health, also crossed the Rainbow Bridge and I was left alone again. Luckily for me this was very short lived as the DogtownSA family soon found me a new friend named Zeus and together we have invigorating walks with the caregivers and volunteers. Unfortunately I am still learning that pulling is not a desirable behavior while walking but with all the lovely smells and things to see it is quite difficult to contain my excitement. I am sure with their good instruction I am receiving, I will soon be happily trotting along at my walker’s side. My dream is to once again live in a forever home with a family on which I can lavish all my love and show them the new found skills I have learnt at DogtownSA. If they have any other fur babies, preferably a nice young man, I will gladly fit in.

Howdy Doody. I’m the newest cheerful red-head that has been very lucky to have found a place at this 5 star hotel called DogtownSA. My name is Jenna and I was rescued with my brother Channing. We were next to the roadside waiting to be sold by some very unscrupulous people but we were rescued in the nick of time by a really kind human. I’m full of beans and get really excited when people come to visit me but I will settle down very very quickly for a tummy rub. We are really lucky as we go regularly on walks together with our carers and volunteers and often to the play area where we run around off lead and spend time running and chasing the balls. One of my bestest games is going on and off the agility equipment. At times I think I am dreaming cos I am having so much fun and am scared to wake up but quickly I realize I am awake and this is my life now. I can’t wait for the times I get to have on my own with my carer cos she gives me such interesting puzzles to figure out and when I solve them I get really special treats and lots of cuddles. I have learnt how to walk at heel already and sit for my food and there is just one thing that I would really love to happen to me still. You see I really do love being at DogtownSA but I would really love to have my own forever family. We could all go to doggy school together and continue to learn more obedience skills. I will promise to make you very proud of me and be your forever special redhead to lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every single day.

“I feel pretty, oh so pretty. I feel pretty and witty and bright. And I pity any girl that isn’t me tonight! Micah’s my name and aren’t I just oh so pretty *blush*. After being abandoned, I’m finally living it up here at Hotel DogtownSA with my boo Leo. Room service, personal trainers and gourmet treats, the only way life could get any better was if my forever family finally found me and whisked away to that fairytale land called home sweet home.” Micah is our bouncy beautiful little Miss Sunshine: shy at first but of oh-so-loving once she gets to know you. This little Miss isn’t crazy about other dogs outshining her, though she does have a soft spot for strong handsome four-legged men that take a backseat and indulge her whims and fancies. While her DogtownSA family loves her to bits, Micah fantasizes about a forever family of her own to fawn and fuss over her everyday of the week. Could you make pretty Miss Micah’s dreams come true?

ANGEL
13 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.

I am Claudia. I am a little afraid of people, although I am slowly learning to be less and less afraid and I am starting to trust some people. I have come a long way, thanks to the help of a special volunteer at DogTown, who just sat with me for ages, and my caregiver who taught me to sit for my food. He also taught me to not be so scared to be touched all the time. I live with two roomies – Yogi and Dex. They are pretty cool and we all get along, but sometimes I need some space, so I get to be alone from time to time. I don’t mind, I usually get some cool treats or yummy dinner! I am very pretty too. I have started going to some training classes to help me a bit, and would love to start a new life with my forever family waiting out there somewhere………

BARKING NEWS - training trail

Training Trail

 DogtownSA has recently set up a Training Trail for all the special fur kids to learn how to be clever and  well -behaved.

The concept behind the trail is to teach the dogs some basic manners while the staff and  volunteers are giving  them their daily walks.   There are six basic stations where the handler will stop with their dogs,  read the instructions on the sign posts and then, using lots of treats like pieces of polony or Vienna sausages, teach the fur kids  the basic commands as shown on the posts. 

Level 3 volunteers are taught during their workshop how to implement these exercises and other pertinent  skills such as how to teach the dog not to pull whilst out walking.   These skills can also be used by the volunteers whilst interacting with their own dogs.

Apart from creating a more well mannered dog the interaction with the handler stimulates the dog and helps him/her to become more socialized and confident.

The first dog to officially go on the walking trail was one of our little puppies called Mary and she astonished us all at the speed at which she learnt how to execute all the basic instructions.   She also displayed a remarkable tenacity to try and hoodwink the handler into giving her an extra treat or two!!!

What also spurs the” littlies” on is that the handlers get so excited when they perform their  tasks so well  that they get even more treats and cuddles and as we all know – the more we all show just how much we love our dogs the more they want to please us.

Good manners makes the dogs more adoptable and the learning is fun for both the handler and the dogs.

The walking trail is a good mechanism to teach the dogs as they are learning basic manners without being in  a formal training class and it is hoped that the number of “task stations” can be increased in the near future, to include more advanced exercises.

FUNDRAISING - Appeal for Tufcat - 31/7
Last updated on Thursday, Jul 03 2014
Dog Town
The TUFCAT Home for Life sanctuary has to move and we need your help. TUFCAT has been caring for feral cats on UWC campus in Bellville since 1994. During this time we have rescued hundreds of mostly abandoned cats and dogs. Although we have homed the vast majority of these animals, some were not considered to be adoptable and were kept by us for various reasons. Our small sanctuary is currently based at our home on a smallholding in Gordon’s Bay. Unfortunately the property is being sold and we have been given notice to vacate by the end of July 2014. Although this is a source of much stress, it also presents us with an opportunity to formalize our unique sanctuary which is more of a permanent pet retirement home (with the emphasis on home) than a shelter or rescue centre. The animals live in a spotlessly clean and comfortable home environment and we provide perpetual care and company for them. All the dogs have their own beds with duvets and pillows and everyone sleeps indoors (except the ferals of course). They are fed premium food, receive high-quality treats and their veterinary needs are taken care of. The aim is not to get these animals adopted but to continue providing them with a safe, secure and loving home for life. These animals are not suitable for adoption due to behavioural or medical problems, they have ‘special’ needs or they are simply too old to be placed in new homes. Our future plans include purchasing a suitable property and opening the existing retirement home to animal lovers whose pets outlive them. This is a nascent, but growing trend in companion animal care globally and there is no doubt that a need for such a facility exists locally. However this is a future plan and our most immediate need to find a somewhere to rent from 01 August 2014. We need a smallholding, farm or portion thereof, to rent (preferably long-term) with an option to buy, in or around any of the following areas: Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Klapmuts, Somerset West, Gordon’s Bay, Grabouw, Bot River, Hermanus etc. We require a fenced property, minimum 1 acre, with a house/cottage plus outbuilding/s and/or stables. Animals housed are limited to cats and dogs with a total limit of 50 being the rule. Animals here, are retired for life, and all have been rescued from lives of abandonment and abuse, starvation and stress. We currently have 12 canine residents and 29 feline residents. All our animals are sterilised and we do not support backyard breeding. If necessary, we will install (removable) cat-proof fenced enclosures for some of our more feral and/or fearful feline residents . We are reliable and trustworthy and have references from other registered animal welfare charities. We are ultimately looking for a long-term arrangement as the welfare of the animals is our primary concern. If you have a suitable property or even a section of your property that you would be willing to rent to us, please email Sharyn – info@tufcat.co.za . For more information on what we do, please visit www.tufcat.co.za

Once you have dep the money, they need more money for quarantine, This is big, I lost R3000.00, and found another three operators on gum tree, all basically saying the same thing.

PET TIP
TTOUCH
 I adopted my little girl Stella from the spca a month ago. She has not been exposed to much and has been quite weary of all new things. This is primarily due to her not experiencing a wide variety of things during her early learning period.
Today she came with me to my tellington touch course and we have both had the honour of working with Linda Tellington Jones herself today aswell as all the wonderful t touch practioners in training. All I can say is that today my little girl experienced so much and for the first time I feel she is happy in her own body :) This is wonderful work and I encourage you all to experience it with your dog. Contact the t touch office and see when they are holding their next workshops or call one of the many caring and loving t touch practioners we are blessed to have here in our country. You can get a list of the T touch practioners in your area through the t touch office. Please visit their website and explore this wonderful work :)
