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.

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.

The descriptions below are from experience of the dogs when taking them out for a walk and should not be considered to be professional advice.


We know a bit about Max's life, unusual for a pound dog. From a pup he has been a much loved family member with another dog as his best mate. Now Max's dad's gone, his mate was rehomed last week (she was just so cute!) and Max spends his time crying. Hence the involvement of the Pound. Max's not actually at the Pound, he's with his Mum, but she works long hours and Max is alone a lot.

If I could I'd scoop Max up and take him home with me. He has heaps of character and he has the staffy talk, if you love staffies, you'll have to love Max. See Max's Trade Me ad for more info

TwinklesOne of the Rangers rescued Twinkles (and Sam below) from life in "dog motels", she persuaded the owner to surrunder them and took both of them straight to the Pound. Twinkles is such a happy girl, she's had several litters, she has nasty sores on her legs from the hard ground, but Twinkles is full of fun and for her life at the Pound is great. She is full if wriggles, cuddles and love and she's easy to walk. Twinkles gets on well with Pongo (another dog rescued from appalling conditions) and Shyboy the Pound Dog.

Buster is a honey, he's a great dog with heaps of character. We think he'd make a great companion hunting dog as he's a great sniffer and he wants to please, nothing escapes Buster! Buster will need some training, he is house trained though and he's nice to walk on lead (with a harness) as he's interested in everything going on around him. I always enjoy my Buster walks, he has such zest for life!

Buster is boarding at SpringGrove Kennels for a week or so while we're trying to find him a home. He's around twelve months old and he loves it at the kennels, he's a sociable fellow and he gets to play with lots of other dogs.
