Description: Devin is a handsome fellow who needs someone special to save his life. He’s been surrendered to the pound because he didn’t obey his owner. He is frustrated in the pound, he’s barking a lot and he generally is not enjoying life. This is not good for Devin because you may ask – “who would foster him?” Well, we need someone with some space for him to run, some patience to help him learn, and some time to teach him that not all humans will give up on him. He’s got it in him to be a fine dog – he just needs you to help him shine. Can you help?

A stunning young blue heeler with his whole life ahead of him, Hudson is looking for a best buddy to share all the adventures of the world with!
Hudson knows his basic manners – he will wait for his dinner and with a treat for encouragement will sit and drop on command. Hudson loves to get out and about for a walk, yet his excitement can mean he pulls on the lead and he is still learning to heel. Hudson will sit at the curb when asked, and no doubt with regular exercise and continued training, Hudson will reach his full potential.
Hudson LOVES to play with toys and his ball – a hearty game of soccer with his indestructible ball is the best thing ever!! Well, maybe soccer is equal in fun to the human cuddle Hudson relishes at the end of a busy game. An affectionate and people oriented boy, Hudson will do well with an owner that includes him in their everyday life.
Hudson is friendly, however, can be a little bullish around other dogs, although with more practice at socialising, he will no doubt learn some doggie etiquette. Hudson currently lives with another dog and they get along well, yet Hudson would also be happy having his humans all to himself. Like most self-respecting cattle dogs, Hudson finds cats, chooks, and rabbits a little too much of a temptation, and would struggle to harmoniously share a home with pets such as this.
Hudson sleeps outside in his kennel at night, and occasionally gets the privilege of coming inside the house. Hudson does tend to have a chew on items left around the back yard – how is he supposed to know your shoes are not meant for his munching pleasure!
Handsome Hudson has plenty of love to share, and would be equally happy with an individual, couple, or suitable family. Although Hudson loves all people, being a robust boy, he would be best suited to a home with just adults or older children, as littlies would find him too boisterous. Hudson will do well with firm but fair leadership, and a routine with boundaries, exercise and plenty to keep him entertained.
Hudson’s bear hugs are as big as his heart, so be prepared for the robust cuddle that Hudson has waiting for you!

Meet Elmo, we reckon he’s a pretty special young guy. He is about 10 months old, but obviously a wise old soul. Nothing fazes this guy – nothing! If you’ve got love and affection to give, he will thrive and would make an amazing family pet.
Elmo is great with other dogs of all shapes and sizes. He currently lives with a 2yr old male Kelpie and they get along famously. At the dog beach and dog park, he is very friendly towards other dogs, and as he’s a passive guy, you don’t need to worry about him getting himself into any trouble. At Elmo’s first foster home, he lived with cats, ducks and chickens and proved to be great with all. Over Christmas, Elmo met and charmed a 2 year old relative who was previously petrified of dogs. After a few days, they were best buddies. He is clearly great with kids and his gentle, loyal nature would make him a fantastic family pet.
Elmo is learning to walk on the lead and making great improvements. He’s already pretty easy to handle on a short lead – he drifts ahead a bit, but responds well to correction and doesn’t pull like a maniac. Off leash, his recall is pretty good, but he does need some more work in this area. He’s very loyal and sticks close by, but he’s such a friendly guy, he can get a bit distracted saying hello to others. He was initially a bit car sick, but now loves jumping into the back of the ute to go the park.
Elmo is very, very chilled for such a young dog. At home, he likes to relax – a lot. So long as you’re close by, he’s happy curling up on the floor and going to sleep. As he is so calm, he does spend quite a bit of time indoors if that is where his humans are. He’s not super high energy, so a daily outing will suffice for him. He does get extra exercise currently, playing with his Kelpie buddy, but he often has to be woken up to play.
Elmo currently sleeps outside on the balcony on a dog bed. He’s not a barker, so no issues there. He is house and toilet trained, so sleeping inside (in the laundry for example), would be just fine.
Elmo is an ACD mix. It looks like he’ll be a large dog, as he’s still got a lot of growing to do. However, as he is so calm and gentle, he’s not obtrusive and is easy to handle.
Elmo will be a loyal, loving companion for one very lucky adopter!
