Unofficial Tasman Pound Dog's Website

Pound Dogs looking for homes

The Dogs available for rehoming through the Tasman Dog Pound are listed below. All these dogs are offered to their new owners desexed, vaccinated and microchipped, they are good value at $140 for both male and female dogs.

If you want to interview one of these dogs please call the Tasman Council on 03 544 3207. The descriptions below are from my experience of the dogs when taking them out for a walk and should not be considered to be professional advice.

When you adopt a Rescue Dog you know you're saving a life. We've found that there's only one owner for some of our Pound Dogs, if we can't find that one owner, then the Dog has no options left. So, please spread the word, mention the YouTube videos and this website to your friends and family and encourage every-one you know to adopt a Rescue Dog.

Sam is a labrador/bulldog x, he's an ex hunting dog who's had a very hard life, he's got scars all over from hunting. Sam's 6 and a half years old, easy to walk on lead, doesn't want to do anything wrong! He loves his cuddles and tummy rubs. Sam is frantic for attention though, he's slowly learning not to jump on people, and that life can be fun. Two months ago Sam weighed in at 17.5 Kilos, in the photo he weighs 25.5 kilos! Sam's spent a long time worrying about his next meal so he's very food focused, he sits nicely for his dinner and treats now.

In the photo, he's just come to us after his operation to have teeth removed, the patch on his side is his post surgery morphine patch. We feel Sam would make a great companion for some-one willing to spend some time with him. He house trained himself, and he'll follow a new owner everywhere. Because he's still a bit jumpy he would be better off with no or elder kids.
