Hi my name is Red Dog! I am a typical Kelpie in that I have lots of energy, and love to run around and catch the ball and play with my foster siblings! I am very sweet and love a cuddle and to nuzzle under someone’s arm after a long day. I am very clever, and listen very well.
I already know how to sit, lie down and shake and I have great recall, even when there are lots of distractions. I am very polite, and sit and wait until I am told to eat my dinner and come inside. I am learning how to walk on the lead, and after a few minutes I know that I need to heal and sit when it comes to a road.
I am house trained, and sleep very well in my crate inside at night. I never make a peep. I do love to be outside though, because I have lots of energy to burn.
I am very very friendly. I know that my cat foster sister wants to be left alone, so when she comes in to say hi, I sit on my bed very politely and wait until she is sat down so as not to frighten her. I am very good with small children, and love a good pat and I love to lick their faces. I am very sociable, and love meeting new people at the park!
I have a lot of love to give, and would very much love to have lots of room to run around and play.

Meet the delightful and smiley Flicka, a young Kelpie x Border Collie. She is on the smaller side and has a stunning long hair coat, tri colour Black and Tan with white chest.
Flicka is one year old and is thriving since coming in to care. She can sit, drop and is learning to stay. Her recall is improving.
Flicka is house trained and crate trained. She is settled in her crate and does not make a sound over night until you greet her again in the morning.
Flicka loves all people, humans and dogs. She is also great with kids. She plays well with her two foster sisters, puppy foster brother, and loves snuggling up to sister Stella.
Flicka is an energetic and happy girl. She loves going for walks, runs and paddling around in the water. She can fetch balls and sticks and brings them back most of the time. She has a gorgeous, very waggy tail and this sweet natured girl always has a smile on her face.
Flicka enjoys a good smooch of a night time, and is ok by herself for periods of time throughout the day, as long as she is included in her family’s life; you won’t find a dog who is better at greeting you when you arrive home!
Flicka would suit a single, couple or family. She would enjoy having a doggy friend, but would also be ok in a single dog household.
Most of all Flicka wants a home and forever family who will continue to work on her training and understands the physical and mental stimulation needs of her breed; as well as love and care for her and treat her as a valued family member. She has plenty of love to give and will be an excellent new addition for whoever adopts her.

Kianna is a loveable, sweet natured dog, about 8 years old but with the lively attitude of a much younger dog. She is a compact cross breed, smaller in size than the average Border Collie.
This girl is super friendly, loyal and loves attention. Like most Border Collies, Kianna is very smart. It didn’t take her long to work out the routine and settle in as part of the doggy family. Kianna loves being inside but is equally at home in the backyard. Her favorite spot is the mat near the back door. Kianna is a wonderful pet as well as a very talented working dog. Here on the farm I found that she enjoys sheep work, has plenty of bark in the yards and moves sheep with ease.
Kianna is normally a quiet dog but she gets excited when she meets a new dog. Once she is familiar with them she relaxes. She was nervous when she was introduced to my two horses, which is not surprising, but is quite comfortable with them now.
Kianna is obedient. She has basic training, sit and stay and recall. She walks well on lead and is happy to be off lead. She never goes far away before she circles back to check in and say hello.
I don’t have cats or children so I can’t comment on her attitude towards either except to say that she didn’t take much notice of the children at the vets. From what I’ve seen she is very accepting. Kianna shows no interest in chasing the chickens. The thing she loves most is chasing balls however unfortunately as her front teeth are worn, this would not be recommended. Having worn front teeth doesn’t affect her ability to enjoy her food or to lead a full and happy life.
While Kianna is lively she is not a super high energy dog. She would make a caring companion dog for a person who enjoys being outside and can give her a daily walk. She likes the company of other dogs, and would be well suited to a home with more than one dog. Would also make an ideal pet/working dog for someone in the country.
