Dutchy, or Duchess is a beautiful Border Collie x Kelpie. She’s around 4 years old. Dutchy is a lovely-natured dog. She is a little shy on her first meeting, but will warm to you quickly; she likes everyone she has met so far! She has a very gentle nature and very quiet.
Dutchy is good with other dogs, curious but quite nonchalant. She’s untested with cats, but met one when she first went into foster care and displayed no interest or aggression toward the cat. Her carers have a resident bush turkey, and she’s shown no interest in chasing that or any of their bird visitors.
Dutchy is a wonderfully calm and lovely natured girl.

Junior is a beautiful and intelligent dog with an infinite amount of potential. He knows sit, drop and stay though getting him to do the last one can be a little tricky as he has so much energy and can’t seem to sit still!!
Junior enjoys going for walks and exploring the neighbourhood He loves chasing balls and sticks and will bring them almost all the way back. As such an energetic dog, Junior will best suit an active home probably with older kids as his shepherding may overwhelm smaller children.
He is eager to please and gets along well with other dogs when introduced properly and given time to adjust and has become great friends with our other foster dog.

Nash is very social and loves other dogs and people. He’s fine with cats and chooks.
He is currently learning the basic manners with obedience training. He’s learning fast and is eager to please. He’s learning to walk on a lead and enjoys this time of learning and using his brain!
He loves pats and cuddles and to just follow you around. He’d suit a family with other pets and children but does need some time spent to get some of his playful energy out of his system.
Just a lovely boy to add to your family!

Britney is a fun-loving, bouncy, energetic young lady who is full of life. She loves cuddles, and she gets so excited when jumping onto your lap that she’ll try to lick your face all over. She’s learning that she’s only allowed on people’s laps when she is invited, and that licking faces is not allowed – but sometimes she can’t help herself and she still forgets her manners.
Britney loves running – she would make a great running partner for someone, but be prepared to sprint fast to keep up with her! She loves playing with other dogs. She hasn’t shown much interest in fetching. Britney has had a few goes at agility, but she wasn’t very interested – she’d rather just run and play. She’d probably be great at doggie high jump though, she seems to have springs in her feet!
Britney is used to sleeping quietly in a crate inside at night. Though if you let her, she would love to snuggle up on your bed.
Britney is so full of energy and excitement that she is finding it hard to remember that she is not allowed to chase chooks. So she would probably have the same reaction to cats.
Britney loves human company. She’ll even go looking for company if she is left home alone – she has been known to climb out of wire dog pens, and she is so bouncy she could jump a low fence easily. For this reason, she will need a home with secure fencing and it would be best if she is in a home where she is not left home alone for long periods of time. It would also be great if she had another dog at home to play with to help use up her energy and keep her company. She can sometimes try to dominate other dogs, so if she does have another dog at home, it would need to be one that’s not overly dominant.
If you are thinking about adopting two dogs – you might want to consider also adopting Boof. Britney and Boof are currently living in the same foster home and they get on brilliantly!
Britney is bouncing up and down with excitement waiting to meet her new family.

Krusty is a friendly dog, very outgoing and intelligent. He can at times have a mischievous streak, and a little stubborn, but he loves a good cuddle and pat. He tries very hard to be obedient and a good boy but, like a lot of working dogs, just gets a little excited. He loves food but is not a fan of water or the surf.
He is very good with children and other people as a whole. He’s very forgiving and tolerant with kids so far of age 5 and above but might be a little boisterous for very young children. He doesn’t bark at strangers or the postman but will let you know if someone is about. He’s great with other dogs, both and off the leash and pays little attention to them, unless they approach him directly.
He’s met his foster carers cats and chased them about the yard and seems to want to play and nip but the cats do not want nothing to do with it. We have tried him on the lead with the cats also and is less excited. He’s doing well with poultry – his carers have trained him and he is now trusted to stay home alone with the chickens.

Sonic is a very intelligent, loyal and loving dog 2 month old Cattle dog x. He has taken very well to his foster brother a 1 year old Kelpie and also to his foster carer.
Sonic is a smart puppy – within 24 hours of coming into his foster house, he had learnt to take his treats gently, sit, stay and come. He also knows his command to wait for permission to eat his food, but sometimes get a little to excited (but what can you expect from a puppy so young!). He is currently working on walking with a lead and is showing great potential.
Sonic is very calm around people and is happy to sit and follow his carer without being told. He absolutely adores cuddles and appreciates affection or a treat as a reward for a task well done.
Sonic would make a great addition to any household and has unlimited potential as a companion for someone willing to put in the effort and training required for his breed.
(P.s. Sonic (named from Sonic the hedgehog) is a bit of an ironic name at the moment, as he cannot keep up with a normal human pace walk!)
