AWDRI

 

Rubi 4

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 2

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?!

Waffles 7

Looking for a handsome, affectionate young man with lovely manners? That’s me, a Kelpie cross with lovely colouring!!!

I love to be around people! I am really good inside and happy to go into my crate or to a space that is mine when I need time out or for bed. I don’t soil my bed, I sit, stay, drop and wait for my dinner.

My ideal home wouldn’t have small animals to chase, but I reckon that if you taught me how, I’d be great at chasing the ball or a Frisbee around, I am really really fast!

I believe friendship takes time and I don’t like to rush into things. Once I decide a fellow K9 is ok, I love to play, wrestle, tug of war and running, zoomies are my personal favourite!

I enjoy drives with my foster mum and she takes me to training every week. I try really hard for her and get better each week with my social skills. We also play chasies in the yard and I am learning not to get too excited, we have lots of fun.

I need a boss, someone who is active, will continue my training and take charge and give me direction! I am at my best when given instruction and rewarded with treats. I am a real people dog and would much rather be hanging out with you inside and because I have short hair, I am very clean.

Each evening I like a good snuggle and happily chill with my foster family.

If I am what you are after in a young man, please apply to adopt me now. I just want a family of my own.

Ricky New a

 

Hi, my name is Ricky and I am a small 8-10 year old Border Collie.

I used to work on a farm and now I have retired. I still love to play and I am very attentive when I am taken for walks and thrive off instruction and commands! I know how to sit and heel, and am great on the lead and when I am off the lead I come straight back when called.

I am great with my foster mum’s cat, and love my foster dog siblings!  I am a happy boy who likes to go for walks and sit in the sunshine with a bone. I absolutely love to have cuddles and be patted, and also like to give my foster mum and dad a cheeky good night kiss!

I am great with my foster mums friends kids, in fact I think this is when I am most happy.  I like to let them pat me and in return I like to kiss their face.

Although I am a little old, I have a lot of love to give, and am energetic enough to go on walks, but old enough to enjoy quiet time too.  I am a little nervous at first, but only so that I don’t get in peoples way or under their feet.

I think I would be best suited to a family, but would be happy to live with other pets or no pets at all.  My foster mum says I really am no hassle and that I am just waiting for someone to give me a lot of love and a nice place to retire.

Juddy is an amazing boy who has been through a lot but is now shining through and looking for his forever home.

He is very sensitive and loves to play with other dogs that are not dominant in nature. He is definitely best in a home with another dog of similar size to play with. He will need ongoing training and socialisation out of his home environment to allow him to develop and show how great this boy is.

Juddy is house trained, crate trained, loves riding in the car, is fine with other dogs, cats, chickens and horses. He is a general all around lovely lad who needs to know you care and will be patient with him.

If you think you have that special home for a lovely lad, them look no further.

Sapphy

Lovely, loyal, intelligent Sapphy, the smallest of the three siblings, with those oversized ears and a half tail, is just a delight.

She’s as keen as mustard and nothing that moves escapes her attention.

Sapphy’s quickly learning to walk on a lead and sit before she gets her meals.

She might be the smallest, but she’s plucky and no push-over.

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