This super handsome lad is looking for a home with a nice big backyard to play in and a family to keep him entertained with lots of activities and cuddles.

Zeph loves to go on daily walks, obviously as he is still a pup he can't go out for long, but when he's older he will be a terrific exercise buddy!

zephyr frontZephyr is a very chilled out little dude, ridiculously smart and a lover of cuddles. He was grown up with cats and has been well socialised with other dogs. He hasn't lived with kids but his cruisey affectionate nature means he is a lover of everyone!

Zephyr needs a secure yard and room to run and people that will dedicate themselves to his training as he is one smart cookie! Working breed savvy people would be a bonus, he is so smart and loyal that he would excel at any kind of dog sports.

If you are on the look out for a super cuddley smarty pants handsome puppy to share your life with then please please fill in an APPLICATION FORM with as much detail as possible.

Meet and Greet and yard check with the dog/puppy is arranged at a convenient time for both the MAR representative/foster carer and potential adopter, including introductions to existing animals and all members of the potential home.

If there are no issues, the dog/puppy is potentially able to stay at the home from this time for a 2 week trial period to ensure the match is compatible.

Adoption form is filled in and adoption fee paid (refundable within the 2 week trial period)

Adoption Pack including any relevant certificates and medical documentation is provided after the 2 week trial period.

Dog Adoption Policy

Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.

Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.

Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is NO 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.

We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to inform them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.

MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
