Friend's original owners were moving away, and had planned to have Friend put to sleep. Luckily he was taken on by his rescuer who moved down to Wellington with Friend, their children, and their dog. Soon after relocating, the rescuer realised her home wasn't the right fit for Friend. He wasn't getting along with the dog, and the new home was very close to a bird sanctuary. The rescuers would have loved to have kept him but knew he needed a new home so he's come to the shelter to find it.
Friend is a sweet, affectionate boy. His rescuers say that he was confident around the 5 and 7 year old kids, and was even alright with being picked up by them!
Friend would be best suited to a home without any other pets.
Friend's adoption fee is $80.
