Safe with AWDRI pending transport into foster care
This older kelpie female is called Smokey, she’s been a hard worker all her life and the ranger says she really deserves to be a verandah dog with a soft bed to retire.
Pippa girl. Beautiful, gentle, and sweet. A special lady looking for a loving owner.
Pippa is very polite and obedient, she walks well on lead and off lead, listening intently for her owners next wish. Pippa will also sit and stay when asked. Pippa adores playing fetch, and will coax you into a game with her for as long as you are willing! Pippa also loves a belly rub, and will roll right over to talk you into giving her affection!
Pippa is good with her feline sibling and enjoys the company of other dogs, she plays well with a variety of doggy friends she meets on her walks and at the beach. She loves to fetch the ball and play on the sand, and although she doesn’t take herself in for a dip, Pippa will happily go in after the ball!
Pippa is lovely with children. She currently lives with 4 young kids and her worst trait is that she licks them too much! A simple “no” easily stops her kisses! A gentle, kind girl, Pippa just adores being a part of the family.
Pippa is a well behaved girl – she does not chew or take anything that is not hers. Pippa is house trained, and enjoys lazing around inside with her humans. Although inside quite a bit, Pippa does currently sleep outdoors quietly at night, and is left outside when left home alone. During the day, Pippa happily potters on her own in the garden, but she has been known to howl when left home alone at night – in the scary dark, she finds comfort knowing her family are in the house. Pippa does bark when a stranger comes to the door, but quickly becomes friends when they are introduced and invited in.
Pippa is in good health. She relishes her walk every day, going to the beach or a park to play a bit of fetch! She adores company, and would suit a family who have time to spend with her and include her in their everyday life. Pippa can climb some fences if left alone, so a secure yard is required to keep her safe. Or better yet, take her with you for the outing! Pippa would suit an urban or rural environment, and would do well with a family or an adult household.
Pippa is available for adoption through no fault of her own, and only due to her current owners no longer able to give her the attention she deserves. Pippa is just a charming, wonderful girl who would relish being someone’s companion – and what a fortunate human companion you would be to have Pippa beside you!

Jack is a handsome kelpie boy – smart, athletic, and a lover of fun!
Jack is a sturdy style of kelpie in good health, and with his whole life ahead of him. A happy natured dog, Jack enjoys chasing the ball and pottering around the garden with his owners – provided he still gets some attention! Jack is an inside/outside dog currently. He is toilet trained, quietly sleeping inside in the laundry at night, and when in the backyard does not jump the fences or dig.
Jack does know “sit”! He will sit and wait for his dinner (getting your tucker is worth behaving for!) and he will also wait until told he is allowed inside (snuggling inside is also worth behaving for!), yet Jack sometimes forgets the importance of looking to his human leader. Jack is unfortunately in a home that’s not a match for him. Luckily for Jack, his current owners have realised this also, and are looking for a more suitable owner to guide Jack into adulthood.
Jack would excel with a human boss who will provide him with boundaries, a regular exercise routine, and challenge him with consistent training that will allow Jack to see the most exciting thing to focus on is… you, his human!!
Jack would do well in a rural environment with space, or a dynamic home with plenty to keep his intelligent mind occupied. Jack would be better suited to an adult home or a family with older children.
Jack is a young dog with the potential to have the world at his paws!!! He is a diamond in the rough, and simply needs a firm, fair owner, who understands the working bred dog and would relish channelling Jack’s clever mind and vivacious physicality into the sparkling gem that we all know he can become!
