Through our partnership with PetRescue we often promote pets who are up for adoption on our social media channels, which is exactly what we did with Digger (because who could resist those gorgeous puppy dog eyes).
It wasn’t long at all before Digger was adopted, and we were very excited and proud to hear that he was going to be much loved by one of our very own Pet Travel Consultants, Kelsey.
Digger came from a Herd 2 Homes Foster carer in Queensland. Digger travelled with Jetpets from Brisbane to Melbourne where he met Kelsey for the first time at our Jetpets Transit Lounge.
Kelsey said “we weren’t actively looking for a dog but when we saw Digger appear on Jetpets Facebook page, my partner Alex spotted him and asked me to apply to adopt him.”
I think it is fair to say it was love at first sight when Kelsey met Digger at our Jetpets Transit Lounge, and he absolutely loved all the cuddles and attention he received at Jetpets HQ in the afternoon.
Digger has now been with Kelsey for a week, and he has settled in very quickly. He is a calm, friendly pup who has not had any issues meeting other fur friends and people.
“Digger is a nervous/timid boy, but we are working on reducing the nerves and building confidence through socialisations and different stages of training, mainly for car rides and new/ public environments,” said Kelsey.
“He is already getting the hang of “sit” & “down” commands. We are working on “off” commands since he loves to jump up to tables and bench tops (especially if food is there). Typical puppy traits, but he is not so crazy compared to most puppies, since he is nearly 5 months too.”
Digger is already so spoilt, and his favourite part of the day is cuddles with his humans in bed each morning. He is also getting along very well with the Golden Retrievers, Jaydee & Sunny.
We love hearing stories like this, and through the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards we encourage you to share your happy ‘tail’ with the nation and show Australia how pet adoption changes lives for the better!
