NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Happy Humphrey is a sweet senior who is looking for companionship in his retirement years. He is a slightly bigger boy, possibly crossed with a corgi.  A friendly and sweet boy, Humphrey has proven in care to be reliable around the house and happy to potter on his own or with his people. While not 100% convinced of the dog door in his foster home, Humphrey knows to ask to go out and has been an exemplary toileting citizen during his stay. Humphrey tends to do his own thing, but is fine with his foster dog siblings and follows their lead to learn the routines of the house. He is friendly and sweet with the household humans, but hasn’t been tested with little people or cats. His foster carers suspect he was previously an outdoor dog, as he tends to make a beeline for the yard and doesn’t gravitate to indoor beds, preferring a mat in the laundry as his sleeping place. Humphrey has limited experience on lead and is now learning about the role of this strange attachment in his new life.

Humphrey is slowing down and showing some of the wear and tear of age. A recent trip to the vet confirmed that Humphrey is deaf, but that doesn’t stop him from being a loving companion. Although he is fine being left on his own from time to time, Humphrey is quite the creative digger, so probably not an ideal match if you value your prized garden beds.

Humphrey will do well with someone who is around most of the time and ready to give him the love and companionship he deserves. This venerable older man asks little of his people, and will be happy with company, a garden in which to sniff and sun himself, and an occasional opportunity to get out for a sniff. He would be happy with or without a canine companion. Humphrey is pretty chilled and his only special request is a home with minimal steps as he finds these a bit difficult to navigate. If you are looking for an easy, friendly and low energy friend, Humphrey is waiting for your adoption application.
