Hi my name is Zoe. I was surrended by my owner a little while ago as their circumstances changed. Their home was the only home I had ever been in until I came into foster care. I am lucky enough to be fostered with my older companion ‘Jack’ who was also surrended with me. This has helped me ease into my new surroundings as I love to play with him and I love to follow him around everywhere.
I am very well behaved and I have never shown one ounce of trouble to my foster carers – I don’t bite, chew, bark or dig! I am not really a ball chaser but I am happy to chase other dogs instead :)
My foster parents are currently training me to sit and wait for my dinner until I am told to eat. Each day I get better with this and I am very proud of myself.
I travel well in the car, can walk on lead and am learning new commands like, sit, wait, come..
I am very good with children and my foster carer’s 2year old loves me.
I would be happy in a home with other dogs or by myself with lots of love and attention Zoe4



Hi my name is Jack. I was surrended by my owner due to changes in their circumstances. Prior to my foster home it was the only home I had ever known. I have grown up around children and I love people. I am very affectionate and love to give people big bear hugs – I guarantee I will give you the best hug of your life! I am very tolerant (I have grown up with a younger dog who follows me everywhere and likes to play bitey with me all the time!!) and I really love to eat bones.
My favourite thing to do is chase the birds flying in the sky. I can run and run for hours and the only thing that gets tired is my tongue..the more tired I am the more my tongue hangs out :)
I am very well behaved – I don’t bark, bite, chew or dig. People comment all the time about how special I am and what a beautiful personality I have.
I would be happy in any long as you like big hugs of course :) Jack 1

What a great mate Steve would be. Steve is slowly getting used to be inside but to be honest, he loves the outdoors way more and is happy to hang out on the verandah. He is a busy guy who loves to round up and herd his foster friends around the yard. Steve is quite at home riding in the back of the ute as well, provided that he is safely secured of course. We have learned that Steve is partially deaf to low pitch noises but responds well to happy voices and higher toned sounds. He is just an all round good dog who would be happy to sit beside you and have a scratch under the chin while contemplating the world. Steve3


Cattle dog x- female – 8mths
Griffith Pound – this girl is now desperate – no more extensions – ranger says Female 8 month old blue heeler x, very friendly with people and other dogs, handles the lead well. She is pretty relaxed not real jumpy like some working dogs.

Sammy is a very handsome and affectionate boy who just loves life. He’s always happy and full of energy. He adapts well to new situations and is doing really well with his ongoing training. Sammy is great with kids, cats and horses but probably not suited to living with chickens as he like to play tag with them just a little tooSammy3
