Hi, I’m Wombat. Odd name for a dog (not my idea!) but it suits me really. My mum is moving interstate and can’t take me with her. I’ve been at my aunt’s house on the Sunshine Coast for 6 months. It’s been great staying here but I’m really looking for my forever people. I’m a 7-year-old desexed Australian Stumpy Tailed Cattle Dog. Had a rough time to start with so I’m a bit timid and really wary of new people. I promise, though, once I know you’re on my side, I’ll be 100% on yours and get really attached. My mum thinks I’ve got a very affectionate nature (definitely a lover not a fighter) and what I like most is to just be around my people. I’m obedient and like to please. I’m house trained and good with children, other dogs and with chickens. I answer to my name and will come when called (once I get to know you), drop and sit and ‘heel’ on the lead. I don’t mind being tied up if it’s only for a little while.
I’ve never been a working dog (not fussed on those cows) and pretty sure I’m not a ute dog or builder’s site dog either…ideally someone who is working from home, needs a therapy dog or is retired and has time to enjoy the company of a loyal friend would be a good match for me!
If you’ve got time to spend with me and can be patient when we first meet, I’ll be an extremely loving and loyal companion – I’m also an excellent guard dog to let you know someone is there…no guarantee I won’t then just hide under your legs or a nearby safe place while you protect me!
If you would like to meet me please call my mum (Cathy) 0481 506 534 or my aunt (Maree) 0411 759 262.
