Gone from Website


Yard: 32
Breed: Kelpie dog x
Age: 3-4 years (Male)
This boy is very stressed in the pound and it was hard to get a read on him. He showed a lot of avoidance to the handler and avoided then growled and lunged at another dog. He would be best as a single dog and with a more experienced owner who will give him the patience and time to settle in. He will need daily activity and stimulation. He may be best with older or no children as he was not comfortable with handling though its hard to tell if this was due to stress. Poor fella who will hopefully improve out of the pound.


Needs save by 3pm 8/7


Yard: 29
Breed: Cattle dog x
Age: 3 years (Male)
This fella will need a really strong and experienced handler. He pulls extremely hard on lead – if you are looking for a mushing dog this is your man. He got very over stimulated meeting the other dog and with handling so would be best as a single dog or with careful intros. He would be best in a home with older or no children. He has a very thick husky like coat though needs a good feed as he is thin under it. Did bark a bit when locked up in the pen. Good looking big boofhead


Needs save by 3pm 8/7


Age: 8-10 months (Female)
What a sweet young girl who is so keen to please. She is very submissive and friendly with people and just melts into pats and cuddles. She got a bit anxious in the fence jumping pen and whined and barked so may be best with a canine companion and will need a secure yard. She spent a bit of time with the testers out in the yard and was barky and stimulated at times and didn’t always listen.She would benefit from further training and an active home to keep her busy


Needs save by 3pm 8/7/14 URGENT



Due TOMORROW (14/5) – Held over once – not likely again :(

Pound notes: This girl was initial a bit unsure and excitable but through the test and with less stimulation she began to focus more on her handler and show a keenness to please, though easily distracted. Initially when being handled she was a bit unsure/stiff but by the end of the test she was soft and waggy. She was friendly towards the stranger and moved forward and jumped up. She is very hungry but showed now guarding in the food test. She is very friendly, and would benefits from some boundaries and training. She does get easily stimulated and needs to learn how to manage that.

Due 6/5 Parvo :(

Pound volunteer notes: This boy is very submissive and very sweet! He is fine to be picked up, walked and patted. He LOVES being cuddled and has the most sweet gentle little face. He has lovely chocolate colouring with hazelish colour eyes. Is only a pup. Gets very excited and wants to play. Loves other dogs.


Due 8/5

Pound volunteer notes: This poor girl is very timid but she will let you pick her up, pat her and take her for a walk. On the walk she sticks close and is very unsure, I’m not sure what kind of abuse this poor angel has suffered, but she deserves a loving home, didn’t see any dog aggression in her, she mainly sticks to herself.

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.
