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.
Breed: Male toy poodle cross
Location: Surrey Hills
Pepe is the sweetest, gentlest boy. At almost thirteen, he is not as playful and agile as he once might have been, but he is inquisitive and eager to explore.
He loves going for gentle walks and meeting new friends at the park. He enjoys pottering around the garden, sniffing and exploring. He’s comfortable using a doggy door and has likely been housetrained, though will need some reminding and encouragement, especially in a new place with new floor plan. He’s trying his best but sometimes has accidents so please be patient with him.
He’s been sharing a house and human with an extroverted young male terrier and the two dogs have gotten along well and respected each other’s space and boundaries. Pepe would rather watch the play than get involved.
Pepe wants to know where you are always so is probably best suited to someone home most of the time. He’d appreciate a little furry friend for company (not sure how he is with cats). His ideal home won’t have too many stairs. Loud and sudden noises are frightening for him, so a home with young children (or visited often by them) would stress him out.
Little Pepe is also a little afraid of the dark and bedtime brings some stress. He whimpers, wanting to be close to you. So, he’d love it if he could sleep nearby – in a bed next to your bed, or in his bed on your bed. Once comfortable and feeling safe and secure, he sleeps through the night.
On hisis first few car trips with you, he might be stressed but when he understands he’s travelling with you and that you’re not leaving him anywhere, he’s a very chilled out travel buddy.
Pepe’s idea of heaven is a warm lap, gentle hands patting him and scratching his tummy, and a quiet home where he can easily find his person. He is longing to be loved and adored and in return will be your most devoted and loving friend.
