This week we feature Poe.

“Hi there, my name is Poe and I am a great pup looking for my forever home. I have not had the best start to life so would love a home that understands my quirks and is keen to help me through them. A home that has the patience and time to help me be the best companion I know I can be. I am super social so I could go a home with another playful dog that loves having a good tumble. I am not suited to a home with young children so would love a home with teenagers who are keen to teach me new things and take me on adventures. Puppy school is something I am looking forward to doing with my new family, especially learning things and making new friends. I do come with a medical waiver that my new home would need to be aware of. If you think you are the home for me please contact the canine team for more information.”

A single-storey brick home has set a record sale price of $5.145 million in Lower Hutt.
The four-bedroom 1920s house on Waterloo Rd in Hutt Central sits on 2227 square metres of land.
One of last large sections that were once common In the city, it is one of many properties acquired by developers following a recent district plan change which opened the floodgates for housing intensification. It had been in the same family for nearly 100 years.
The sale eclipsed the previous record of $4.60m for a residential property set by a house in Boulcott’s Military Rd last year.

Remember now that we are in Alert Level 2, the rules have changed a bit.
Here’s what you need to know:
◼️ Face coverings are legally required for everyone 12 years and older.
◼️ Standing isn't allowed on services. Staff won't allow people onto services if they don't believe space is available, so plan ahead and be patient with operators.
◼️ Check in as soon as you board the service.
◼️ Stay home if you're sick. Sitting directly next to someone is allowed. Be mindful that drivers may not stop to collect passengers if all seats are occupied. Dedicated school bus services are exempt from the no standing requirement.
