Louie is a vibrant and happy little boy, with a very adventurous spirit coupled with a curious and fearless nature. He is very intelligent and learns quickly. He has already mastered sitting on command and drop, is working on the commands stay and come, is house training nicely and is embarking on lead training. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle when he is tired. He also has an independent, willful streak. He likes to have the company of another dog if his humans are out of sight at this stage. He seems to have natural herding ability and loves to gently push the chickens where he wants them to go and is not afraid of sheep, but rather has a good bark at them.

Please has just arrived into foster care and will be available to adopt soon.
Rowdy is an energetic, high leaping, lean muscled, action packed dog. His natural instincts to round you up are quite strong so if you are looking for a stunning trainable farm boy or a guaranteed agility performer – this is the dog for you. Able to leap tall buildings (and fences) in a single bound, faster than a speeding bullet – very possibly – certainly faster than any other dog and way smarter as well.
Rowdy is very trainable, if you have the time and want him to learn all your tricks of the trade, Mr Smarty Spots here is your man. His markings are sensational, red and chocolate patches with a bit of rust and tan for good measure – this boy wears his own camouflage. He gets on very well with all other dogs – whilst in foster care he attends doggy daycare everyday for walking and socialization and has been doing exceedingly well. Totally loves praise, will do anything for an ear scratch and a bit of a smoocheroo. Loves to come inside and have a bit of human on the couch and is house trained – no stress there.

A very lucky, very loving owner is out there somewhere just waiting for Nikki to share many wonderful years with. Nikki is a beautiful Border Collie x Kelpie with all the sensibility of an adult dog yet still with a sparkle and playfulness that makes you smile.
Nikki willingly responds to sit, drop, leave, and will “hi-five” to celebrate her cleverness! Nikki heels well on lead or off lead, and her recall is good. She knows her manners and does not jump up, preferring to roll over for a tummy rub if you’re willing to oblige her! Nikki loves to play ball but accepts when it’s time to put the toys away.
Nikki sleeps quietly inside on her bed at night, and loves cuddles – snuggling onto your lap if allowed for that extra special pat. Nikki loves trips in the car and being by your side for a fun adventure! She is good with other animals, including cats, and friendly with other dogs.
Nikki is a loyal, loving, well behaved girl with all the smarts you could ask for in a best friend. Nikki is happy outside and is also house trained (toilet trained, no chewing furniture etc!). She does have a slightly weak bladder, common in female de-sexed dogs, which is managed easily with a simple ½ tablet a week. Nikki is polite and generous. She enjoys exercise but is equally happy just pottering around beside you.
Nikki would make a fabulous companion for a couple or individual or a family with older children that would include her in their everyday life. She would be happy with a canine sibling, but equally as content sharing her love with just her humans. Nikki is suited to most environments – urban or rural. She will win your heart when you look into those deep brown eyes, and entertain you with her simple joy at being a part of your life.
What a super special, beautiful girl Nikki is! What a super lucky owner you would be to have this amazing girl join your family!

Pongo is a little bundle of fun wrapped in red fur and occasionally tinsel.
He has mastered walking on a lead, sitting for treats and has learnt how to use the doggie door to let himself in and out. And great news – the toilet training is done!
Pongo has played with kids and enjoys their company. He is also great with other dogs as he is currently residing with his brother, Archie, an older cattle dog and a tiny Chihuahua. He’s happy in the pack and knows his place.
As a pup Pongo has loads of energy and is keen to learn especially when there are treats involved. When his vaccinations have kicked in, he will be going to the dog park with his foster buddies to check things out and for additional socialisation.
Pongo could be the second dog you are looking for, an exercise buddy or a companion for your kids. Being a Cattle Dog cross, he will be faithful and loyal. He’s a happy fellow who would be lots of fun to have around the home and to grow up with your family. He may chew your shoes and rearrange the landscaping as he grows but will it make for good stories in your family history.
His future is for you to write, so why not send him an email today?
