More about Red

** Update 11/10/2023 – Adoptions have closed for Red while we work through an adoption process with a family** 

Our gorgeous old boy Red is looking for his forever home! Red is a 12 year old Heeler X who recently came into our care from the Christchurch City Council Shelter.  Red is a very sweet boy and has quickly become a favourite with our staff.

He is still quite sprightly for a 12 year old boy and loves to go for walks. Red does have arthritis in his elbows and is currently on a supplement to support this (4Cyte). He may need veterinary prescribed anti inflammatory medication as he gets older.

Red has been non-reactive to the other dogs at the shelter and has socialised well with several dogs at the CCC shelter as well as with a young 4 month old puppy here. We are not sure what he is like with cats or small animals.

Red needs a loving and warm retirement home and if you think you can give him this, please complete and application form here:
