Meet Diva

Poor Diva has been used by her previous owners to pump out puppies and was then left in the pound.

Diva is a lovely little house dog that will make a great addition to any family. She is house trained and is very happy just sitting beside her human all day. She only has a small bark but will sometimes use it when she knows her humans are in one room and she another. She is used to sleeping on or near her humans and currently sleeps with her foster carers primary school age kids. She is great with children but can excitedly jump up in faces, so would be best with children over 5 years old.

Diva is good with other pets, is very friendly with new dogs, but she will stick up for herself if being pestered. For this reason she'd prefer a home without a very young puppy to annoy her. She is the same with cats - will be happy side by side a cat that is calm but if attacked she will chase back.

*Thanks to Maeve, Fiona, Margaret and a huge thanks to Lorraine for their donations towards Diva's vet fees. Her additional costs have now been fully covered* Diva unfortunately suffers from brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome and so a home that understands the complications with that from over excitement or heat exhaustion is a must. She will be undergoing surgery in late September to alleviate some of her symptoms but this won't be a cure-all. Her surgery is expected to cost just under $1,000. Any donations towards her surgery costs will be very appreciated.

If you are interested in adopting Diva she should be ready to go to her new home in late September but we are taking expressions of interest now so please get in touch with some information on your household and what you are looking for in a new pet.

Diva was adopted on 11 November 2022 after 2 months in foster care
