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.

lovescars

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.

Jetty8

Jetty is a very friendly social boy and makes sure everyone stops to pat him on his walks. Being a young dog he is learning how to socialise with other dogs of all ages.

He is a happy boy nothing seems to bother him. He likes to chase balls and occasionally brings them back. He’s learning manners and what is acceptable with his foster carer. His carers have a one year old boy and he is learning his manners around small children at the moment.

He loves to run, every time a runner goes past on the beach he runs alongside them. He’s slowly getting in the water, only his feet at the moment!

robby01

The delightful and lovable Robby is a tap dancer! He is so excited about love and affection that his front feet don’t stop moving. If only we could get some tap shoes suitable for doggy paws, he would be famous!

He is just a lovely boy who loves to be with you wherever you go, whether it’s just out to the washing line or into the paddock.

While he does not like cats, he is not concerned about horses or chooks (unless they get too close to his food).  Robby is great with his carer’s other dogs – both large and small. His tail has a mind of its own and goes around in circles and doesn’t stop.

Prior to coming into care, Robby had not received any training but he is really making up for lost time.

When Robby gets excited, he still has a tendency of jumping on people so would need to be with a family with older children. His carers are working with him to improve this.  Like many dogs, he does get very excited at dinner time but is learning manners and would love to continue them with his new family.  Continue reading
