Britney is a very active and easy going young girl.  She is confident and her previous owners have advised she is friendly with other dogs.  She was living in a household with adults only so hasn’t had an opportunity to interact with children.  She enjoys chasing games, going for walks and being around people.  Britney can be overfriendly and boisterous towards visitors.  She needs some training but considering her young age she should respond well to this.

Yard 8 ‘Chevy’ Male Cattle Dog X Approx 5-6 Years

◾In the cage: He just sat and looked up to the handler and waited for the lead to be put on.
◾In the stand and ignore: Chevy did the longest wee in the world so we suspect he must be house trained. He walked to the end of the lead and looked about. He cried a little.
◾With withdrawal of affection: He liked the pats and then stood closer to handler and looked up at her. He was still crying a bit.
◾With handling: Comfortable and happy to be handled.
◾Health issues: Nothing obvious.
◾Guide and place: Easy in to the sit and resisted the drop.
◾With the stranger danger: He stood quietly and watched the stranger and then he came forward had a pat and moved away.
◾With the doll: Showed no real interest in the doll but was not avoiding just had better things to look at!
◾In the dog to dog: With Yard 3 He had a good sniff of her and was quiet and polite. He did not want to engage in the play though.
◾With the food test: Easy to move his head away from the bowl and then paused and went back to the bowl.
◾With correction on martingale: Quite responsive and he walked well on lead.
◾Training: Knows sit, drop, wait and stay.
◾In the fence jumping pen: No attempts to escape.
◾This bloke is charming, calm and easy going. We felt that he was a little stressed and unsettled he was so even tempered throughout the test, it was just easy to have him around. He is polite and appropriate with other dogs and although he was well behaved he did not want to engage in play with the bouncy pup from Yard 3, He would love to have a home where he would be part of the family and have a lovely nice walk each day. He would suit a home as an only dog or with another calm more laid back pooch. An absolutely lovely gentlemen

Carbon: Male Kelpie x, 18 mth old, NSW

Carbon is an absolutely lovable Kelpie cross who is wonderful with people - welcoming them with a full backside wag (the tail isn’t enough) and gets down lows then sits near their feet. He is a puppy so he doesn’t quite know his dimensions therefore expect adults and kids alike to get boofed by his hard head and bowled over with all the excitement- it can really hurt. He is fantastic with all dogs (playful & happy) but has been untested around other animals.
