AWDRI

Betty1

Hello and pleased to meet you, my name is Betty and I’m a 9 years young border collie lady.

Foster mum says I am the sweetest, smiliest old soul she’s ever met. She says there is plenty of life left in me yet!
I’m pretty clever too; I am house trained, can sit, stay, get on my bed on command, wait patiently for my dinner and am also crate trained.

I love playing with my foster siblings, short runs, long walks and my squeaky toys.

I am a pretty low maintenance working breed dog, as after a little bit of exercise, I will happily spend the rest of the day tucking into a juicy bone and snoozing on my bed or a comfy chair. I do love my belly rubs and a good snuggle as well. I have the loveliest, softest coat foster mum’s ever felt.

I’m looking for a forever home and family to call my own. I think I’d suit any kind of family, all they need to do is love me and include me in their lives. A bit of an understanding of the mental and physical stimulation needs of my breed would be handy as well.

I know you’re out there and I can’t wait to meet you!

Love and licks, Betty x

Vixennew3

Hi there, I’m Vixen, a one year old, small kelpie x girl.

Foster mum tells me I’m special for a lot of reasons, but you should probably know before we go any further; I’m a special needs dog as I am going blind in both eyes. It is predicted I will be completely blind within the next 6 months.

That being said, I don’t let it stop me being a normal kelpie girl and doing everything my Foster siblings do! Mum can’t believe how clever I am at figuring out new places and surroundings and navigating my way around!

I love my daily walks, exploring with my big foster sisters, playing games of tug-o-war and chasey with my little puppy sister, and kicking back to enjoy a nice juicy bone. Squeaky toys and tennis balls are my favourite!
I love all the new humans I meet, including the mini ones, and get along well with all of the dogs here.

As I only have minimal vision remaining, some sudden things or new sounds can frighten me. But foster mum says I’ve improved out of sight (hah!) and am becoming more clever and brave each day since coming into foster care.

I can sit, wait patiently for my dinner, am house trained and crate trained; I will go in there on command and sleep quietly until it is time to get up.

I love snuggles and pats, and will happily chill out quietly with you, whatever you’re doing.

I’m looking for my very own forever home, so I can become familiar with my new surroundings while I have some vision left.

If you think I’m the special little girl you’ve been waiting for to come into your lives, please apply now, I can’t wait to meet my new forever family!

Love and licks, Vixen x

Jacknew1

Hi! I’m Jack and I’m an 18-month-old kelpie/cattle boy.

I’m a clever, happy, easy going boy and I love everyone I meet – human or furry! I love running along the beach, playing with my 3 foster siblings and having a good old game of tug-of-war with my foster mum. I love to give kisses when I’m invited to and I absolutely love cuddles!

My foster mum says I’m an extremely intelligent boy; since coming into care I have already learnt to sit, drop, shake, high-five and wait for my dinner. I walk well on the lead and my recall is getting better every day. I am house-trained and sleep quietly in my bed at night. I am very eager to please and I’m always keen to learn some new tricks!

I’m ready to find my forever home and family, and am excited to meet them! Any kind of family is fine by me, as long as they love me and include me in their lives, and understand the mental and physical stimulation needs of my breed. They also need to continue to work on my training and socialisation to ensure I grow up into a well adjusted adult dog.

Sox4

Sox is a beautiful, friendly dog who just adores people, including little ones. In foster care, he’s been exposed to both toddlers and young kids, and is very patient with them. In fact, he just laps up any kind of human attention! He has a very soft and loving nature.

Sox isn’t a fan of cats and is best suited for a home without a cat. He’s interested in livestock, but not been tested on them.

With his beautiful friendly nature, Sox would be best suited for a family where he can get a lot of attention and pats!

Maximus1

Maximus is an active fun-loving young dog.

He is very responsive to training and would love an active home where he gets to participate in dog sports like agility and flyball. He has lots of energy to burn, so he would also be a great running partner.

He’s very affectionate and gentle; he loves cuddles and tummy rubs and will love to sleep on your lap. Maximus is crate trained and will sleep quietly in his crate all night.

He is very friendly and gets on fine with all people, including children, and is also great with other dogs. He has not been tested on cats, but he ignores chooks that are in their pen.

If you are looking for a loyal, fun loving, energetic boy, Maximus would love to meet you!

Loki4

A beautiful marble coloured Kelpie x Koolie , Loki is an enthusiastic and loving puppy who is sure to be a loyal family member. Just 6 months old Loki is quickly learning basic commands with the help of his favourite thing – food!

Loki loves to chase his foster brother Junior around the yard but also loves to curl up next to you or on your lap for some pats and love.

He enjoys playing in the puppy pool but takes some convincing at bath time!  With some more training and love Loki will make a wonderful, loving, lifetime companion.
