Koda is a stunningly beautiful Kelpie girl and she is about 9 months old.
She loves playing with a ball and loves playing with children. She might be a bit excitable for really little children as she is just a youngster herself, but her foster family includes a 7 year old and she is fine with him.
Koda would benefit from some extra training as she has not had much in her short life. She can come and sit and walks well on the lead but she is not hugely keen on getting in the car. She is a very smart girl though and picks up new things quickly.
She gets along really well with other dogs and can be fed at the same time as them with no worries.
If you want a beautiful, happy and loving addition to your family, Koda is your girl!

Tilly wants to be your best mate and go with you to the ends of the earth. There is no better job for a velcro cattle dog than following its human and Tilly is a prime example. She loves cuddles and kisses and would be a lap dog if she could as long as she is with you. She travels well in the car, walks well on lead . She jumps up when excited but will sit if told.
Great with male dogs, not so sure of other females but comes around. She will chase cats but doesn’t hurt them. She has been tried on sheep but showed no real instinct so would not suit a working home, more a life as a tradie’s mate where she could go to work with her owner. She is gorgeous dog that melts your heart. Everyone who meets her adores her.

Will is a delightful and friendly gentleman who was surrendered after his owner needed to go to a nursing home. Will is a beautiful boy with striking blue eyes and a gorgeous coat, he gets many compliments when out for a walk or at the park! He has a slight overbite, but this does not affect him at all.
Will’s favourite game is fetch, he would play all day long! He is good with other dogs and prefers to walk in the other direction from dogs that are aggressive towards him. Will is very human focused and loves to be wherever you are, he needs a home where he will be included as part of the family. Will would make a good guard dog, he barks when people ring the front door bell but not ongoing or incessantly.
Will is house trained and knows basic commands including sit, down, wait and on the lead. He does pull slightly when walking, but is responding to basic lead training very well. Will sometimes jumps up when excited, for this reason we would not recommend him for a family with very small children as he may accidently knock them over. Will is very eager to please and he responds well to positive reinforcement.
Will is beautiful boy who is very loyal and affectionate and looking for a furever home where he can be an integral family member.

Bella’s foster carers tell us that she is a really lovely dog. She is very affectionate, loves to be close to you and is definitely a lap Kelpie!
Bella is well-behaved inside the house and it has been very easy to train her to go to her mat and remain quiet (for most of the time). She is also very happy to sleep outside. Bella gets on well with Xena, her foster carer’s resident 3 year old Kelpie although Xena does sometimes find the younger, bouncier Bella a big pesky.
Prior to coming into foster care, Bella does not seem to have received any real training other than the ‘sit’ on command. While in foster care, she has learned to wait until given the command ‘tucker’ to release her to eat at meal times.
Bella is getting better at coming when called but when in new places, gets distracted easily – which is not surprising really given that working dogs are very interested in the world around them. Her carers are working with her and with consistent training, her recall will improve. Bella is a joy to walk on lead. She is biddable, easily directed, is happy to walk to the side and does not pull.
Bella is not particularly interested in games or playing fetch unless Xena is also playing – in which case, she delights in stealing things from Xena. This is quite common with multiple dogs but as a Kelpie, with training, we have no doubt that Xena can be taught to play, tug and fetch. Continue reading

Hi there! My name is Rama and I’m looking for a loving owner who can spend plenty of time with me! I love people and although I’m a little shy at first I warm up to you very quickly. In fact, after I get to know you, I wont let you out of my sight.
I’m still only young, but I am already house trained, know how to sit and come when I’m called, and I have great manners! I wait for my food and I’ll patiently wait for you to call me out of the car and the house before I follow you. I also don’t pull on the lead when we’re out walking, but I still need some training.
I love other dogs! Sometimes dominant dogs make me nervous but I love to play with the quieter ones, especially in the water! I’m used to chickens, horses and sheep too, but I know I’m not allowed to play with those. Like most dogs I do love to run around outside, but I’m happiest lazing about with you on the couch at home.
To meet, adopt or find out more details about Rama please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.
