Meet Phil

Phil is an adorable pug mix that the vets estimate to be between 6-7 years old. What he lacks in size he makes up for in personality!

We don’t know anything about Phil’s previous home but when he came to DCH he had extreme flea allergy dermatitis and a yeast infection that caused some hair loss on his chest and around his tail. Phil has come a long way but his new owner would have to be able to commit to a sensitive skin diet and weekly medicated baths to ensure his skin keeps improving!

This handsome man started off very timid and scared at the pound but is now the biggest love bug and adores his human! Due to his rocky start in life Phil can be very wary of new people, especially men And does resource guard his house and favourite beds. Because of this Phil needs a quiet household with no children and no other animals.

Phil is quite an active guy and loves going on regular walks but is still learning what manners are so patience and ongoing training is a must!

Phil is a great companion and would love nothing more than a human that he can spend all his time with. He is toilet and crate trained so would enjoy being a predominately inside dog.

If you think Phil would make the perfect companion for you let us know!

His estimated DOB by the pound has been recorded on his microchip as 1/2/2011 however the vets who have seen him have suggested he is only 6-7 years old.

Located in Lalor Park.

Phil has been in foster care since 27 February 2022, for 2 months
