Who am I?
I’m an animal lover, book reader, novice knitter, footy follower – Go Geelong, Veronica Mars fan (Never go without Back-up.) I live in Brisbane & attempt to promote Borrow Dogs as much as I can locally. Any group or locale is more than welcome to spread the word & utilise this site where they live.
I believe communities have the ability to meet the needs of those who participate in them with just a little creativity & endeavour.
Why Borrow Dogs?
Nothing creates instantaneous joy in me like a dog. Yet not everyone can live with a canine, but who wants to miss out on accessing that joy? So many dogs have an excess of exuberance & love to share – now is the time to let them do that.
With busier lives & smaller yards, dog ownership has altered whilst dog needs & laws have further developed. Borrow dogs want to help with these changes.
Bored dogs bark, dig & can create havoc, but are not necessarily any less loved. Unit living, landlords & cost may rule out the pleasure of homing a dog for many. By allowing dog lovers to spend time with dogs who have love to spare, Borrow Dogs hopes to bridge this need.
Over time & geography it would be wonderful to see dog complaints decrease, less dogs surrendered & more people happily walking canines in the community. It took well over a year for me to meet the original Borrow Dog, Ollie, I hope this page speeds that along for others.
There is a Pal for every Pooch!!!
