Ozzy is a very sweet, affectionate boy, who loves to be around people, and is always smiling.
He has a very relaxed and chilled out demeanour, and is extremely quiet – in fact, he never barks!
He is great to take for long walks, and enjoys going to dog parks, and loves car-rides.
He also is not an escape-artist, or digger of holes. He will almost always come straight back to you when called.
He is house-trained, and is a quick learner. He knows how to ‘Sit’, ‘Wait’ and ‘Lie Down’, he will need to be reminded not to jump up on you to say hello, but he only does this to show you love, and give you licks.
He is very inquisitive, but also very well behaved when in comes to other animals. He has been living with three cats, who he just wants to be friends with.
He loves chewing on bones, but if given indoors, he will try hide them for later, and you may find them in basket of freshly-washed clothes!
He is extremely patient with other dogs, and has shown no aggression toward them, or people. He just wants to be everyones friend.
He would make a great dog for a single person, or a family, and would be happy to spend time indoors chilling out with his new owners.

Meet the sleek and lovely Sasha, the elegant Kelpie/GSD/Sighthound cross.
As you would expect from her breed mix, Sasha is very smart and very high energy. She can make her way out of a fence yard so would be best with an owner experienced with working dogs who can keep her mentally and physically enriched.
She is not suited to be an outside-only dog or left unattended outside as she is very people-oriented dog and wants to be with her humans more than anything else – she’s a real smoocher and you couldn’t find a more affectionate dog. She is afraid of loud noises, thunder storms and the dark and is looking for an owner to help her overcome these fears.
The lovely Sasha is well past that destructive puppy phase. She is crate trained, has perfect recall, is wonderful with children and is excellent with other dogs. She also travels well in a car and makes an excellent companion and friend.

Dudley is tri-coloured brown white and tan. He is a solid dog. Dudley is friendly and loving. He is ok with kids and little dogs but doesn’t really pay them too much attention and would rather be with the adults.
He is very loyal and likes to have one human that he is devoted to. He loves the whole family but is the type of dog that needs that one-on-one connection.
Dudley is active but not crazy; he loves to run around and play with the other dogs but is also happy to snuggle at your feet. He loves to be with you and will follow you from room to room or wherever you are. Dudley enjoys playing ball and does bring it back although like to tease you when it comes to handing it back over.
He is good with other dogs although he does like to be boss. If approached in a threatening or aggressive manner by another male dog he will defend himself. He is a lot softer around female dogs.
Dudley will chase livestock but is not bitey with them; it’s more about the chase and he does bark at them through the fence. Dudley could easily be a farm dog or yard dog with regular walks. He is good to bath and doesn’t mind the hydro bath and blow dryer! He loves to chase the water from the hose and have it sprayed in his face, while he tries to catch it.
When settled in his new home Dudley will be protective and guard the property. He may challenge people entering the property that he doesn’t know and will need to be properly introduced to all family members.
Dudley is staying inside at the moment and is house trained. He loves his bed at the side of his carers and is happy to stay there until the humans are up. He can be a bit anxious when left alone and does bark and howl. We are addressing this with the use of a citronella collar which is working to some extent. Dudley has been known to howl when left outside at night so may need an inside spot. Although he is a big dog he is easy to manage inside as he is happy to be washed and groomed regularly and is not boisterous inside.
His carer cannot say enough about this lovely dog. He would be in his element with an active single or couple.

Safe with AWDRI pending transport into foster care
This older kelpie female is called Smokey, she’s been a hard worker all her life and the ranger says she really deserves to be a verandah dog with a soft bed to retire.
