PURINA Pound Pups To Dog Stars


Hunter - Heading Dog/Huntaway Cross (Ham)

Purina Pound Pups To Dog Stars on TV ONE and TVNZ Ondemand

Puppy – male heading dog/huntaway cross


Hunter is a 7 month old Heading Dog/Huntaway Cross who has had a tough start to life but with TLC and training his confidence has increased and he is learning that life can be fun. He loves playing with the other dogs in his foster home, enjoys his toys and lives in harmony with the cats.

Hunter loves human cuddles and games but sometimes he can still be a little shy when first meeting new people or situations so he needs an experienced owner, who will take him out and about and continue with his training. He is a smart little fella, quick to learn and eager to please. Hunter will only be rehomed into a situation where he will be treated as part of the family – he must be allowed to be a house dog when his people are at home and ideally, there will be another dog to keep him company. He is not high energy, or manic but he will need a reasonable amount of daily exercise.

He will need a secure fenced outside area, with shelter to keep him safe when he is outside. A property check will be carried out and an adoption contract will apply. Hunter is fully vaccinated, he has been treated for worms and fleas, he is microchipped and registered, desexed and had his back dew claws removed.

A $250.00 reimbursement will apply for these costs.
