Kahl is a little champion, he is always happy, always bouncing around and is capable of putting a smile on anyone’s face in an instant. He is intelligent, responsive and alert, with it only taking his foster Mum minutes to teach him good recall and to sit. Kahl loves to play, whether it’s with people or other dogs he instantly turns into a goof ball of fun and is hilarious to watch. Kahl is learning new things every day and is doing brilliantly while learning to walk on a lead.
Although he is enjoying his time in foster care, Kahl would love to find his forever family in time to spend Christmas with them. He would like to live with an active family, would be great with kids and more than happy to share his home with another friendly dog. Kahl is a real catch and is waiting to make one lucky family’s life a whole lot better.
Norman is going to make someone a wonderful best friend he is a true companion dog who just wants to be around you he definetly likes a cuddle and a pat.
Norman is a little rounder than he should be but with a healthy diet and excerise that roundness should fall off, Norman is good on lead he walks right next to you, he is learning to wait for his food, Norman will sit and come when called however his recall isn’t 100% so will require some training. All and all Norman is happy guy who is looking for his forever home.
Norman may bark when someone is at the door but that is more alerting you than getting territorial
Norman likes to be the dominant dog so if he the dominant dog in his new home, then that will be the best position for him. When he’s allowed to be the then top dog Norman is great with other dogs.

Mabel is a happy, loyal young girl and loves to follow you around. Mabel sits on command, walks loosely on the leash, and comes when called majority of the time. She get along well with humans and loves championship. She also gets along well with other dogs.
Mabel is a pleasure to have at our home, and she will make a wonderful companion to the right person.
At only 10 months of age, this sweet young darling has been through so much in her short life.
Currently in foster care, Kelly is entrenched in the day to day rituals of family life. Sharing a home with her foster siblings (both kelpies), she blends in with the pack easily and has been submissive to the Alpha male. Within her foster home are two young boys who she absolutely adores and has quickly become their best mate.
Three cats can be a recipe for disaster with some dogs but Kelly shows absolutely no interest in them. As her foster mum, I have only heard her bark once and that was to be let out in the morning for her toileting. She has been crate trained since she came into care and prefers her own cosy space to snuggle down in the evening.
Kelly would thrive in an environment as somebody’s best mate or with a family who can shower her with the love and cuddles she so desires. She has basic obedience but would, naturally, benefit from additional reinforcement of sit, drop and stay.
This beautiful, soft natured girl is looking forward to find a family of her own who will love and cherish her forever.
Gypsy is a sweetheart. She’s a smart bouncy little bundle of joy. Gypsy walks well on lead, sits to have the lead put on and will, usually, sit for her supper. She gets along famously with her foster brothers though she is a bit in your face for one of them. Because she is so young and has puppy tendencies your shoes are not safe from the Gypsy redesign. She travels well in the car but would prefer to sit on your knee so a harness is a must. She loves children and because she is so small she would be unlikely to knock them over. She would make a wonderful addition to your family though she’d probably be happiest with another four legged friend to keep her company while you are away.
