POUNDCAKE- adopted

Life of Pikelet HQ, Sydney Australia
English Staffy x Shar Pei • 14 weeks old • Male

It’s with great sadness that Poundcake’s foster parents can’t keep him. This little pocket sized staffy x is a very special puppy and there is a very lucky forever family who will hit the jackpot with this one.
At approx 6 weeks of age, Poundcake arrived into care extremely unwell. He barely had a single tuft of fur on his legs and his paws were both under developed and swollen. With nothing more than a healthy diet of quality raw barf, lots of tender love and care, Poundcake has blossomed into a wonderful little, happy pup.
Having been babied in a house filled with other foster and rescue dogs for the past 6-7 weeks, Poundcake is now a very confident and spoilt little guy. He is both highly sociable with the other pups and extremely affectionate towards his foster parents. Poundy (as he is affectionately known) needs to find a forever family where he can be centre of attention but also have the companionship of at least one other well balanced doggo.
We don’t know exactly what size Poundcake will grow to in adulthood, however at an educated guess he’ll be a small-ish medium sized dog. With dark beautiful brindle features, long legs, a long whip tail and deep brown eyes, love at first sight is exactly how many people who meet Poundy feel.
Poundcake is still working on his toilet training and is about 80% there. He is extremely food motivated and very very clever. Crate trained at nighttime, knows how to sit and stay, this smart little cookie should excel at all activities his forever family teach him.
One last thing new potential owners should be aware of… Poundy has a voice! When you arrive home from work or walk into the room after having left for 5 minutes, you can expect a full concerto with a range of tunes to delight any avid music lover. Poundcake is particularly talented at reaching those extra high notes!



BEFORE you read Poundcake’s adoption criteria it is extremely important that potential adopters give great thought and communicate in their adoption application as to what their home set up and routine plan is for the first few weeks/months if they are the successful adopter of this most wonderful little rescue puppy. Poundy cannot be settled in over just a weekend and then left on a Monday home alone while you return to work… There needs to be a plan outlined so that his foster family can feel assured he is going to be set up for success during this crucial developmental puppy stage of life.




Deal breakers:
– Poundcake has grown up with many canine siblings and is use to their constant companionship so having at least one exisiting dog in the home is a must.
– Poundcake must attend puppy school and his new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure he grows to be the best doggo he can be.
– Daily walks and outings are a must, right now Poundcake is a little intimidated by the outside world. He’ll need daily walks boost his confidence.
– A balanced, healthy diet is very important for a growing boi. Poundy currently eats a raw, BARF diet which we feel is the best thing for him to continue on.
– Poundcake must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as he pleases.
– The lucky adoptive family of Poundcake will need to be ready to keep in regular touch with his foster family at Life of Pikelet throughout the duration of his life.
Non deal breakers:
– Experience with energetic bull breeds is preferred but not essential.
– Ideally Poundcake’s new family has someone home more often than not or has the capability to take him to work with them.
Please contact for an adoption application.
**All applications will be reviewed and replied to within 5 days, please be patient.
Poundcake’s adoption fee is $650
Adoption fee includes:
– First 2 puppy vaccinations, collar & leash.
– Desex surgery at 6 months of age at Balmain Vet Hospital

A desex contract is part of Poundcake’s adoption binding agreement. This will mean that change of ownership with council will not be complete until proof of desex at 6 months of age is provided. If Poundcake is adopted out of NSW his desexing & 3rd puppy vaccination must be completed at the expense of the adopter. The surgery certificate must be colour copied sent back to Life of Pikelet for completion of change of ownership.




Poundcake is a very healthy boy. He has no health issues since arriving here at Life of Pikelet. He will need to be heart worm treated and tested once he is 5 months and older.


**Located in foster care in the Inner West of Sydney, Poundcake is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful, Poundy’s new owners will need to come to Sydney to complete adoption paperwork and travel home with him. Video footage of yard & home will also need to be provided along with the agreement to a possible home check by a local Life of Pikelet rescue volunteer.
