Bindi walks great on a lead and off. She knows how to sit and is learning how to drop and stay. she is very smart.

This lovely girl is great with kids, other dogs and cats. Given the chance she would like to round up any chooks you may have though.

archie6

My name is Archie. I don’t mind being the one to say this, but I’m a very handsome chap!

I love my humans, and am always welcoming them with wags and cuddles. They keep trying to make me sit for my treats, and I’m quickly learning that’s the easiest way have them part with the goodies!

I love my chew toys, especially when they are filled with snacks, my Kong with peanut butter is my favourite!  I also really enjoy chasing my furry friends around around and around the yard till I just need to sit and rest.

I’m just a very laid back and easy going dog, the only thing I really don’t like is bath time, but who does?

New Gary Pic

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

Jet3

Jet is a very active Kelpie who loves being with humans and other dogs. He is quite timid around strangers but once he gets to know you he is very affectionate and loyal.

He is definitely not a dog who will do well if left in a back yard by himself, he gets anxious and will bark if left all alone. He would do very well as a companion dog to someone who is home a lot and/or has another dog to keep him company.

He is great with kids, loves to play and would likely learn to fetch.  He does not like the car but has been having some short trips and getting braver with this.

He is quite good on a lead and is has learnt to sit very well for his food. He is learning to come when called and making great progress.

He has learnt to get on with the cat, which was not easy as the cat wanted to attack him daily for the first week. They are now on speaking terms although not best friends!

Pippa5

Pippa is a ray of sunshine! She’s a delightful 3-4 year old Australian Cattle Dog cross.

Pippa loves to be with people, going for joy rides in the car, playing tug, treats and relaxing walks. She has taken to crate training like a duck to water & will put herself in their when she’s tired or has had enough of her foster sister. Pippa is toilet trained and has never had an accident inside. She is happiest lying at
your feet while you’re studying or fixing the car – her carers think she’d make the perfect tradie’s lady!

Pippa does jump up when she’s very excited but she learning that exciting things happen faster when you have nice manners. For this reason, she would be best suited to a home with older children or without kids.

This smiley girl is quite clever too! She is learnt the routines of the house very quickly and mastered drop in just one day!

She is an expert at sit (sometimes we think she would like her name to be sit!). She’s learning to wait for her dinner and to stay. Pippa gets along well with other dogs but does have issues with dominance. She would prefer a home with a submissive dog or to be an only dog. She is a pleasure to walk on lead.

Pippa travels very well and settles in the car almost instantly. She’s a little on the podgy side but we are working on that. Pippa is learning to play with toys (which is
adorable).

If you’d like to make Pippa a part of your family, or to meet, adopt or find out more details, please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.

Mort10

Hi, my name is ‘Mort’ (short for Mortar). I got this cool name because I was busted out of jail with a dude called ‘Brick’.

I am 4 years of age & currently being forstered with a loving family on Lake Macquarie and I have a playmate named ‘Nia’ whom I get along with really well – she is an ACD x Staffy also and looks just like me.

Since I have been with my foster family I have learnt to be settled when being patted, where as I used to be a bit licky & jumpy. I know how to sit and wait for my meals and always give a hand shake. I’ve also learned to sit and stay.

I love going for my daily walks down to the dog park and or beach and I am very good on a harness and lead. Once a week I get to go to a farm where there are horses & chooks. I am good with the chooks and getting used to the horses. I get to run off leash at the farm and if Nia & I spot a kangaroo we chase it through the bush. They are always way too fast for us but we love to run as fast as we can. We always return quickly to our mummy though.

Sometimes I get chained up at the farm while mummy does her chores eg; feed all the animals, but I am happy to sit quietly and wait for her.

I travel well in the car and love to have my snout out the window to get the fresh air aromas. My most favourite of all toys is a squeaky tennis ball, the smaller ones are best. I can amuse myself for quite some time with one of those.

I just love hanging out with people, but if you do have to leave me at home on my own I will stay quietly until you get back, just throw me a bone & I’m happy. I don’t tear clothes off the line or dig holes either.

I would suit a family with teenagers or maybe just a Tradie who could take me to work with him. I promise to mind his truck while he works as long as I have shade & water and still get to go for my walk every day.

I am waiting for my furever home so I can share all my love around. I have so much to give and willing to learn all the rules of the house.
