AWDRI Dogs

maci2

Miss Maci is a gorgeous Kelpie x. She is a very lively little thing and is slightly smaller than your average Kelpie which makes her a nice companion dog for indoors or outdoors.

Maci loves a good run and to exert her energy with company, but when inside she just likes to play with her toys and generally settles very well. After the initial excitement of being let in, she is quite happy to sit for a brush or a cuddle and your presence.

In her foster home Maci comes inside on odd occasions and is happy to be outside for her nightly sleep. She doesn’t jump at the door to be let in and while she sometimes sits at the back door to see what’s happening, she is very content to just be.

Maci has spend her last few weeks with our children (five and six) and behaves gently with the kids. She hasn’t been a jumper and even though our two resident dogs fling themselves over a six foot fence, she hasn’t even attempted it.

Maci is toilet trained, desexed, flea treated, wormed and ready to go! Maci is in Gippsland and waiting for her new family to come and find her!

Banjo is a real mixture of wonderful things!  She is a friendly, laid-back lady who also has Kelpie energy and can keep moving all day long.

She has obviously been cared for and is slightly overweight but not food-focused.    She gets on well with other dogs but is also quite happy to play on her own.   She has shown no signs of interest in her carer’s chickens, sheep or cattle.

Banjo will need further training to desensitise her from cars as, like many working dogs, she finds them absolutely fascinating – which is something that needs to be deterred.  She finds heavy vehicles unsettling and will also need some desensitisation training.

Car travel, however, is completely different.  Banjo LOVES travelling in the car and is quite happy to hop into the car and invite herself along for the ride with an inquiring: “Are we there yet?” on her lovely face.

While in care, Banjo is learning basic commands and her carers are working on her jumping and her leash walking skills.  This is something that her new owners will need to continue as training should always be an ongoing activity and is an excellent way to strengthen the bond between a dog and her family.

Banjo’s carers are working on her confidence as she is can startle easily.  Time, increased positive experiences and desensitisation should help to continue to increase this lovely girl’s confidence.

Due 3pm 29/7 Safe with AWDRI pending transport into foster care

Volunteer notes: This stunningly unique looking girl has a warm energy. She is funny as she can be really obliging and then backs it up with some stubbornness so I would say she would need a consistent home that would offer her boundaries. She showed some minor signs of anxiety when tied up away from people and especially from other dogs so we think she
would be best with a canine friend. She met super nicely with all the dogs today and was extra keen to have a zoomie with them. She would love a home where she will get daily activity and some continued training. A gorgeous girl.

*FEATURED DOG*
Carbon: Male Kelpie x, 18 mth old, NSW

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.
