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.

Darling is a young dog, probably around 12 months old. She's a bright, happy girl, with a great nose for sniffing out the tastiest treats! Unfortunately, not only does Darling have a great nose, she's an aspiring athlete and can scale the average fence in one bound! Darling gets on well with the other dogs at the Pound and she's been in to Richmond and Sinful Coffee to socialise. She had a great time sniffing and getting pats and cuddles from heaps of people.

Darling has been in trouble with sheep, so she must be rehomed to some-one with very good fencing and away from any sheep or chickens.

ShyBoy is a dog who needs to find a very special home. He's been living at the Pound for over twelve months now as the Pounds resident dog. He's been there so long because John was worried about how he would cope with life outside the Pound.

ShyBoy is still very, very scared of people, as you can see in the top photo, but he's very slowly learning to be more trusting. The bottom photo shows ShyBoy (on the left) out for a walk with another Pound dog, this wouldn't have been possible even a month ago. So, very slowly, he's improving and if ShyBoy can find the right home for him, with some-one with a lot of patience, it is possible ShyBoy could adapt and become a good friend.

Shyboy will need to go to some-one with fences and on a two week trial. If things didn't work out ShyBoy could return to the Pound, but we want to give ShyBoy a chance of a normal life.
