About Me:

I’m a young boy who has recently found myself at WAG, along with my bestie Lil. We are both estimated to be under a year old and are sweet, bouncy, playful pups. Not much is known about my life prior to WAG but its clear that I love treats, toys and I’m keen to ask for cuddles and scratches, if I can stay still for long enough! It seems that lots of things are new to me but I am getting used to sleeping indoors, peeing outdoors and wearing a harness and leash for adventures. I recently had my first vet checkup and was really brave, I realised I love peanut butter and didnt even mind when the kind vet vaccinated me. I am intact so have been booked in for my neuter with WAG’s partner vet next week, hopefully I will find a nice loving home or at least a foster home to recover in.


I’m a bundle of fun and have made a big impression on the staff at WAG already, I am full of life, joy and will make the best buddy for someone looking to add to their family. I’d love a home where the humans have lots of time for me, to play, learn, adore me and keep me safe. If you think we’d be a great fit, please scroll down and fill out an application form today!


Please keep an eye on my profile for updates as the staff get to know me better…..

My perfect fit...

  • Is willing to take a trip or two to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. I’m shy at first but I will soon learn to trust you.

  • A family with patience who love bouncy, goofy, joyful, silly young ACTIVE dogs!

  • Understanding that I have had HUGE changes in my life recently and to give me the time I need to settle in and relax after my adoption. Especially if I am to live with other dogs or littler humans.

  • Be proactive with my training, using a WAG approved trainer that will help me learn new skills and give me the best set up for success.

  • Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus for morning zoomies and play sessions. If not, being okay with using a long line to allow freedom but keep me safe.

  • Will take me for annual vet checkups and be proactive with my health.

My Story:

Phil and Lil are two resilient souls who faced the bitter cold during a recent snap with temperatures plummeting below -20°C. Abandoned and left alone, these brave companions had already weathered nights outdoors, and may not have made it through another. A concerned citizen, recognizing the urgency of their situation, reached out to WAG. Thanks to this community member and the swift response of the WAG Team, Phil and Lil were rescued from the freezing cold and brought into the warmth of the WAG shelter.

Now, these survivors have a chance for a brighter future. They are receiving care, warmth, and a safe space to rest and are now available for adoption into loving homes of their own. It’s a testament to their resilience and the crucial role that community support plays in saving lives.


If you are not currently in a position to adopt, please consider making a donation to WAG to help Phil, Lil and other doggos in need. Your donations make a difference in providing care, shelter, and hope for animals facing adversity and helps them in their journey to their individual future adoptions.
