HERMAN the dog was looking for a home and he found one.
The adorable pooch was one of 30 puppies and dogs that found their forever home at the Adopt a Dog Day at the Arcadia residential estate in Officer on Saturday 19 March.
Up to 300 people turned up to the adoption day, with the first couple looking to adopt arriving at 10.30pm the previous night and camping out in wait.
More families hoping to adopt began queuing from 6am.
Pooches given to the first ‘best home’ available, with an interview process in place to make sure the family’s lifestyle and living arrangements for adopting were suitable.
The event was hosted by Satterley Property Group in partnership with animal shelter Pets Haven.
Satterley’s Victorian general manager Jack Hoffmann said: “On behalf of Satterley Property Group, I would like to thank Pets Haven, and its many volunteers, for the tireless work that was put into making the event on Saturday a special day for all involved”.
