Hi, I’m Matilda

Matilda finds herself at the shelter with quite a chaotic past behind her & is now looking forward to a more peaceful future where she can hang out at home with her new family: chilling out on the couch, relaxing in the sun, having some fun ball games & lots of attention & love.

She is a cheerful, playful character who love a good ball game & really enjoys the company of her people. She needs to lose some weight but this can be easily achieved with regular exercise & sensible portions of a high quality diet. Being a slightly older dog, she is not super high energy as some working breeds can be. If she has some daily morning activities then she will happily chill out in the afternoon.

She has not lived with children in the past and is not looking to start now. She is looking to be around responsible adults who can understand that dogs have boundaries that need to be understood & respected.

Matilda has slightly impaired vision but she can still tell where a ball has been thrown!

Matilda is looking forward to her future..... maybe with you?!

Matilda's adoption fee is $145. This includes her desexing, microchip, health check as well as up-to-date vaccinations, flea & worm treatments.
