Leo is a lovely boy who is full of energy, smart and eager to please.

Since coming into care a some weeks ago he has become comfortable walking on the lead and has almost mastered fetching a ball.

He responds well to commands such as sit and stay and waits politely for his food. His favourite game is tug of war and he likes squeaky toys.

Leo spends the evenings inside and sleeps in the garage. He doesn’t make any noise throughout the night.

His carer has been told he is good with small children, although,she does not have any of her own. He is timid around the cat.

He is very loving towards the carer’s dog although a gradual introduction to her was required.

Please let us introduce you to 4yo Steel. Steel is an owner surrender who is in foster care in Melbourne.

He has come from the land so would probably be suited to a farmlet or somewhere he has room to move. He may prefer to be around you, so perhaps be taken to work each day or someone who works from home. Steel travels perfectly in the car and waits for you patiently when you go into the shops. He has a very quiet nature. The big city is all new to him and is still finding some noises or traffic a little scary, but I am sure he will blossom once he settles.

He is in foster care with three other dogs and he gets on ok but hasn’t had a lot of dog socialisation before coming to the AWDRI family where he was a single dog and person home. Steel loves to be part of whatever is going on and if he can see you from outside he will try and stare you down. He enjoys a play with the other dogs and will use his paws to get your attention. I think Steel would be better with older children if he were to go to a loving family, as he can be quite playful so may knock a little one over with his enthusiasm. He doesn’t bark much and there has been no destructive behaviour.

Steel is of good size and proportion for a Kelpie and will require regular exercise and mental stimulation. He does like the ball, so you will need to have a supply of these available for him. Being fawn (almost like the colour of a mushroom) in colour, he will require someone committed to feeding him a good quality diet to maintain his coat and skin. Ideally he would like to be around his human and be part of what you are doing no matter what it is. All up we think Steel would be prefer to be part of an only dog home so he could have you all to himself.

Steel is quite well mannered and does sit on command and shakes paws sometimes, he is the perfect companion. We are working with lead training as he can pull but is adjusting well. Occasionally he jumps up but is easily corrected.

Steel has been perfect in the house even though he came from being an outside dog and hasn’t looked to mark his territory inside. He likes to come in of a night and sit down in front of the TV with you. He sleeps soundly overnight.

Steel is a beautiful dog and he will only go to the most loving and suitable of homes.

To meet, adopt or find out more details about Steel please read our page on the adoption process and then fill out our adoption questionnaire.

Kell has a very sweet disposition is very friendly with everyone. She loves to hug with her paws. She is good with kids, people dogs and cats and seemed good with the temp carers parrots which she had stand in their cage. She’s a very gentle dog.

She is timid and may take a little time to develop more confidence with her surrounds. She has a definite desire to please and is very curious so does nevertheless learn quickly when not feeling threatened.

She isn’t a barker except if left alone so do believe once settled down will not have this problem.

Kell loves to play with furry squeaky toys and tennis balls.
