Meet Gary!  Gary is a very lovable, young cream Kelpie cross.

He is a very, very sweet boy with a lot of love to give to his new family.  He loves lots of pats and attention, especially at night when he is inside and chilling out with the family.  He is very well-behaved inside and is fairly calm when he comes inside.  He sleeps with three others dogs – staying on his bed, generally curling up and going straight to sleep.  He is trained to go outside to the toilet before the lights go out at night, then returning inside to spend the night with his other fury friends in front of the fire.

Gary is also fine to stay outside, though prefers the company of others.  As you can see from the photos, he is wonderful with children.  Continue reading

Well hello there! They call me the Cisco Kid, and I love life!

I am the happiest, most adorable 5 month old puppy. I love to go for walks on the lead and I always check back with the human to make sure they are having as much fun as I am. I love going to the park and playing with other dogs and people. I love my food and sometimes I eat too much and I waddle around before falling into wonderful food sleep.

I love people. I love other dogs. I love cats. I LOVE LIFE!!!! Woohoo!!

I am pretty smart and learn things quickly. I like being indoors of course, but I am equally happy to have my jacket on and sleep outside in the big kennel with the big dog. I do love company so I might be a bit lonely if I was left alone without a human or a dog.

I am asked about my parentage, and quite honestly I cant tell you anything about them. But seriously does it matter because I am so beautiful and gentle and friendly. I will be your best, most loyal friend for life, you can count on that.

Adopt me. You wont be sorry.

Ruby1

Ruby is a pocket rocket! She is smaller than your average kelpie but just as fast :)

Ruby knows how to sit, drop and stay, is learning to heel, and is super keen to learn everything there is for a doggie to learn. She loves to get out and run, and is learning to bring the ball back to her foster mum.

Ruby likes to pretend she’s miss independent but really she likes to be able to keep an eye on her people and is an indoor dog.

Ruby is great with cats.

Ned the gentle giant is a largish blue cattle dog around 3 years old with a beautiful smile.  A very friendly dog, he loves hanging out with his human and adores pats and a lot of loving!

Although we think he’s almost completely deaf, he’s a very fast learner and you can usually catch his attention with a high pitched noise.  Ned can sit and wait for his dinner, he knows jumping isn’t allowed and is very quickly picking up the rest of his basic training.  Due to his partial deafness, he’s being trained mostly with hand signals, to which he responds well.  He is very eager to learn but, like most dogs, he needs short, sharp training sessions to keep his focus and attention and he’d love a new family to train him further.

Ned loves other dogs and is very playful.  He is best suited to a household with another dog, or two, for company and someone at home to follow around for pats and companionship!  His carers report that he appears to be fine with small kids and also loves their attention and pats.

Like most working dogs, he needs a good fenced yard to keep him safe and away from cars.  He most likely isn’t suited to a property with livestock and chickens.

Ned is a beautiful boy, very laid back and not bothered by very much.  His deafness aside, he is a low maintenance dog with a big heart of gold and  his carers believe that anyone willing to give Ned a home filled with love, pats and playtime would in turn be very lucky themselves.  He is a gentle soul and would make any household feel complete.

To meet, adopt or find out more details about Ned please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.

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.

He needs a lot of attention and a lot of land to run and explore. Ideally, he would be best with a family who is very active.  Once he’s been fed and exercised, he’s happy to cuddle up to you and fall asleep.

He is getting obedience training while in foster care.  He knows sit, drop, out of the kitchen and off the road.  When off-lead, he is wonderful,s taying in sight and following his family around.

To meet, adopt or find out more details about Carbon please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.
