Ben 2


Ben is very placid and calm 3 year old Border Collie. He has such a beautiful soul. He is EXTREMELY gentle and quiet. He absolutely craves love and affection!
He knows how to sit and follows commands easily. Ben is very happy and easy going. He loves coming inside at night for special cuddles. He is toilet trained, so he’ll let you know when he needs to go out.


Ben is extremely good with other dogs. He has lots of fun playing with his foster brother Max.


He is fascinated by cats and needs to know where they are at all times. He has just started to chase them too so he would be best suited to a house with no cats.


He is not very active, not like a normal working dog breed, so he is happy to cuddle or sit and your feet and relax!  He would also be a great travelling companion.


Ben will be perfect for a family with children of all ages. He is very very gentle and will sit and let anyone pat and cuddle him. He loves to be showered with affection!  Ben would also be a great companion for elderly retired people too as he adores company which would be perfect for someone who is home all day.

Neo is not only gorgeous on the outside, but the inside too. He loves a pat and a cuddle and just simply being around people and other dogs. He likes to play and loves going for a walk where he has very quickly learnt to walk well on a lead. He learnt to sit in just a few minutes on his first morning in foster care and is developing good recall skills. When learning a new thing he remains focussed (especially when there are treats involved) and appears to have the ability to learn anything.

Brumby is an Aussie girl who loves to play. Whether it be camping, fishing or four wheel driving she is the perfect companion.

Brumby enjoys the company of other dogs playing wrestles and chasies. She is a happy go lucky dog and quickly fit right into farm life here, she loves to help feed the horses and the chooks (even though sometimes she helps eat the feed as well). Anything you do she is right beside you. Brumby comes when she is called with a whistle, shakes and can sit on command.

Hi Everyone, I’m Cahill!

I’m a young 18 month border collie x, and I absolutely love life!

It didn’t take long for my current foster mum to realise that I LOVE my balls, and will happily play fetch all day if she allowed me to! I also apparently love to swim, but haven’t been to the beach since moving in with my foster family as they live a fair way from it, but I have been bushwalking, which I also love.

I am very friendly to everyone, but sometimes my enthusiasm for life gets me very excited when meeting new people, so would be best introduced to younger humans slowly.

I love playing with my foster fur sister very much, but she’s not as quick as me when playing fetch so has given up! So I would love a furry friend who’s as fast as me to hang out with all day until my new family get home and take me out for a walk to the park or to play some fetch.

I’m fully toilet trained, I will sit and patiently wait for my dinner until told it is “okay”, My recall does need some work, but I’m a smart boy and as long as there is no distractions (such as my balls) I will pay attention!

For now I’m just happy enough with my foster family but would love to get to my forever family ASAP so I can share my love for life with them!


Bodhie is a very happy and social boy who will greet you with an excited whole body wag, and who loves to provide affection and cuddles. He loves to play and when out about on walks, or playing in the park, he has to say hello to every person he meets. Bodhie is great with other dogs and children but hasn’t been tested with cats. It’s difficult to believe, but this happy soul was surrendered due to his fondness for chasing chickens, so sadly Bodhie would not suit a home with poultry.
