AWDRI

043A2429 (Large)

Are you after an affectionate, friendly and loyal mate? Dougie’s your boy. Playful and loving, he is typical of cattle dogs in giving his love to his human. Fantastic with pups and dogs of all sizes and ages, he does best when not confronted by another dominant male but happily plays with submissive males as well as females. Ball focused and will bring it back each and every time. He has great recall and walks well on lead.

House trained and obedient, he is a little stubborn when it comes to his “Sit” 🙂 Treats or a ball are great motivators but don’t leave him with any stuffed toys. They’ll be destroyed in minutes.
Dougie has not been tested with children and his strength and exuberance would probably not fit with young kids or toddlers.
He would NOT suit a farm with livestock and probably not cats either.

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

Charlie-3
Hello world, I’m Charlie! I’m a tall kelpie cross.
I really like being a Good Boy. I’m toilet trained and if you forget to take me outside I’ll make sure you know because I don’t want to make a mess. I also know sit and am getting better at laying down and walking nicely on the lead. I love pats and affection and will do almost anything for you if you give me a big pat and tell me that I am a Good Boy! Foster mum thinks that I’d be good at learning lots of tricks and all you need to give me in return is lots of pats.
I like to run and play with other dogs my size. I like to play zoomies and wrestles. Sometimes I’m a bit too excited for smaller pets and like to play chase. I also love to chase a ball, or a chew toy. I’ll bet I could learn to chase it and bring it back for you, especially if you tell me that I’m a Good Boy.

People are great. I’ve met lots of people at foster mum’s house and I’ve liked all of them. I might be a bit big and bouncy for small children, but I am practising not jumping up because I am told that is not a thing Good Boys do.

At the end of the day I love nothing more than to curl up for a cuddle, and have a nap by your side. I hope you don’t mind, but I snore a little bit.

I would very much love to be a Good Boy at your house, so please apply to adopt me today!

Jazzy new pic (2)

Hi, my name is Jazzy!

I am a sweet young girl roughly around 9 months old.

I absolutely love dogs and people, adults and Kids, but as I am still a puppy I do need to be supervised around children.

I love going for walks, I walk great on and off lead, off lead I am happy to just walk at your heel!   I love getting cuddles, I’m not phased by dogs, cats, chooks, horses and cows I am around them all the time at my foster home.

I would fit in perfectly with an active family that would love to take me on adventures with them!  I can be full of energy but I also know how to be relaxed and calm.  I still have some learning to do, but I am very responsive to training and my foster mum can’t believe how much I’ve learnt in the short time I’ve been with her.

I will fit into the right family in no time! Can’t wait to meet you!

Woof Woof!

Rubi new prof

 

Rubi is an athletic 18-month-old brown Kelpie X Something-Short-Coated. She’s the first non-shedding dog her foster dad has ever had. It’s great – not even mud seems to stick to her coat!

She may be half a working-dog breed, but she is a thoroughbred play-dog with not a working-dog thought in her mind. With the right person, she will excel at agility training.

Rubi is just crying out for the attention of a lady with a young daughter or other children to play with. Her foster dad says: “My wife and grand-daughter make me irrelevant when we’re all together! She adores our 12-y-o Blue Heeler and our daughter’s 1-y-o English Staffy.”

She has learnt to tolerate occasional interactions with cattle, and over-flying planes are no longer barked at. Thunder receives no response.

An adult male human might have to work a little bit harder to gain her trust, but when that happens, she will be eternally faithful.

When Rubi and her foster dad are alone now and then, she’ll come up behind him sitting at his desk and nudge his elbow up with her cold, wet nose, and snuggle in for a cuddle.

Banjo a

Hello hooman, I am Banjo!

My foster pawrents call me “ClownJo” because I am a clumsy clown. Sometimes my legs are too long for me to handle! I have fallen off the couch a few times while I was wiggling like a worm trying to get my foster mummy to rub my tummy.

I am growing fast, but when I was abandoned I did not have enough food to eat, so I am still very skinny at the moment. But foster mummy is fattening me up with all the delicious food and treats!

I LOVE people and my favourite time of the day is cuddle time – when I get to put my head on foster mummy’s lap and fall asleep while she pats me. I usually go say “Hi” to people at the doggie park we go to and kids do not bother me either.

My foster brothers play fetch and they run fast, I like chasing after them instead of the ball! I come back when called and I usually stay close to my foster mummy and brothers when we are out about. My foster pawrents are impressed with how smart I am. I have learnt where to eat, where to sleep, and where my spot is in the car etc all in a couple of days! On my first night at their place, foster mummy left the door of my crate open in case I did not want to sleep in there, but I slept right through the night. I am toilet trained too.

I understand “sit”, “drop”, and “wait”. We are still training walking on leash, but I start to understand what I am supposed to do now!

All I need now is my very own family! Is this you?!
