Benson is a gorgeous ACD x who is on the smaller side. A very affectionate boy, he just wants to love you and spend time with you. He is very energetic and can jump up into the air and look you in the eye, so he will need high fences! He can be reactive to other dogs and likes to be boss. He is learning lots of new tricks and some doggy manners including learning to sit and wait for his food. He loves belly rubs and will follow you everywhere. He doesn’t mind cats but would prefer a home with no chickens or cattle. He would love an energetic family who will spend time interacting with and training him.

Benson does jump up in excitement, and while he is improving, he does sometimes forget, so not suited to small children as they could be knocked over.

If you’d like to make the very gorgeous Benson a part of your family, or to meet, adopt or find out more details, please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire. Please note that completing the application form does not place you under any obligation to adopt. Adoption Information.

Rhea1

Rhea is a lovely, sweet dog who would fit perfectly into the home life of her new family.  She loves her humans and greets everyone with energy and happiness.

She has a few quirks and these add to her beautiful personality and nature.  She is learning not to jump when she meets you but once her excited energy settles down you will find she is very chilled out and sweet. She is a sucker for scratches and a little massage and you can flip and twist her all around when giving her a brush – she loves it! She follows at your heel and likes to be wherever you are.

Her way of playing with other dogs is quite boisterous and fun and she doesn’t know her size (I think she is still a puppy at heart!) and also likes to play nip so she would need a sibling who is her own size or bigger that doesn’t mind this kind of play.  She would also suit being an only dog as she can be quite relaxed and is happy to do her own thing so long as she has bones and toys to chew and puzzles to play with – she is very food orientated and could sniff out a buried bone a mile away! Also, she gets way too excited over cats and birds so wouldn’t suit having these as siblings – or at least not in her sight.

Rhea is great with kids. She has had interactions with a 10 month old and was always super gentle. She has been climbed all over by a three year old too, who was determined to pretend Rhea was a horse. Rhea would always be patient with him and just give a look to mum that said “what is this boy doing?”.

Arlo5

Arlo is a wonderful and brilliant dog.

Just 8 months old he is great with other dogs and will play for hours with his canine siblings… a another kelpie his age and an older, more sedate staffy and adores both of them. But he saves most of his love for humans – he absolutely adores people and loves nothing more than cuddles, pats and rubbing his head along your legs. His loyalty, trust and happy face always bring a smile to his foster carer’s face. He’s not too clingy though and will happily find a toy to amuse himself. Food and praise motivated he is very easy to train and knows how to sit, he’ll wait for the command before eating and knows to wait at the door before he is let in.

Arlo is also crate trained which means he is happy sleeping in his crate overnight – perfect when getting him used to a new home and very handy if you want to take him away on holidays. He is also perfectly house trained. And of course, he is a stunning and handsome looking dog, he gets lots of compliments and people coming up to say hi when he’s out and about (more photos to come soon when his carer has perfected the art of photographing black dogs!)

He will need a home that is dedicated to lots of exercise and one that will put in the time to continue his training (as he is still really only a puppy) and will do best if he has another dog for company or a human that is not away for too long each day.

If you’d like to make the cheeky and playful Arlo a part of your family, or to meet, adopt or find out more details, please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.

Angienew2

Angie is very focused and attached to her human family, and she wants to be with them whenever she can. She can be very timid, especially with new people, but will soon warm to them.

Angie is so focused on her human family that she doesn’t like sharing them with other animals, both at home and when out, and she can be very jealous of  other cats or dogs. She is particularly intolerant of cats and smaller dogs. She would best suit an environment where she is the only pet.

With her family, she enjoys a game of fetch and particularly walks, she really like walks! She is good on a lead.

Being part Labrador, she is quite food focused, and so is responsive to training.

She lives comfortably in a suburban backyard, and is happy at home during the day when her family is at work. She had the opportunity to wander away from her current foster family when a gate was left open, but she ignored the opportunity and stayed at home.

She’s a very sweet girl that would make a great addition to a non-pet household!

Tulsa6

Tulsa is absolutely adorable, he’s still a puppy at only 12 months old. He’s not a very tall dog , not as tall as an average size Kelpie.

Tulsa rarely barks and doesn’t respond to the dog next door who is constantly barking. He walks well on the lead and loves to be out walking. He’s an active dog and also loves playing with a ball.

He is house trained and will sleep inside or out. He doesn’t jump up on the lounge and is happy to stay in his bed. Tulsa is also good in the car .

He is very gentle taking treats and is not aggressive when around his food.

Tulsa learns very fast and is super smart and is fun to train. He is doing really well with his training and can sit, stay and drop. He will also sit and wait for his dinner.

He loves going for a walk and will runs and sit by his lead when it’s walk time.  His carers have a parrot and a budgie and he has been excellent with them

Tulsa is so affectionate – he would sit and cuddle all day, if you had the time! Tulsa is one gorgeous little boy with a huge heart.
