Rippa is a stunning 12 month old male kelpie.
Rippa has been in my care for nearly a month. He is a very affectionate boy that loves nothing more than to be with you and smooching on the couch. He is very obedient, sits stays and comes when called. He walks well on the lead, loves going for rides in the car and plays well with my resident dogs.
Rippa would be a great dog for someone wanting to do agility or fly ball as he is ball mad and super keen. He would also be a great dog for someone wanting a running buddy. Saying that, he is happy to play with his toys and keeps himself amused in the backyard.

Introducing the sweet and ever so gorgeous Nell with her delicious glossy chocolate and tan coat, this Kelpie girl approximately 8 years of age.
Nell has had a hard life, we suspect used as a puppy breeding machine, she has fairly low exercise requirements and would be best suited to a retirement type home. Perhaps an older person on a bit of land who wants a fireside and garden companion. Nell will need careful introductions to ensure that she gets along with others – she is currently in care with 4 other dogs but still needs ongoing training and a watchful eye. She appears to be okay with cats and comes into the chook yard to collect the eggs without showing signs of “I feel like chicken tonight!”. Nell is happy to hang around home rather than follow the bike down the back paddocks or the car out the front gate. She is fine around horses and cattle. She loves going for rides in the car and travels really calmly and quietly in the back. She enjoys visits to markets and is happy to meet new humans and small humans but needs to be on a short lead when introduced to other dogs.
Shadow is a gorgeous young man, with a silky soft, shiny coat. He’s a happy, energetic boy who loves to play. His favourite game is fetch and he will chase a ball for as long you can throw it. He loves walks, rides in the car and the dog park. Shadow gets on well with other dogs including his foster brother.
*Safe with AWDRI – Just into care*
Message from foster carer … “Esme came into foster care yesterday from the pound. She is already relaxed at being back in a home environment and is going to make someone a fantastic pet. Being a surrender we know a little about her background. She is used to teenage kids, tolerates cats and apparently enjoys riding on a quad bike. She shows little interest in our birds and is beginning to show interest in playing with our dog.”
Location: Esme is located in Brisbane and is available for travel. Continue reading
Devil is an incredibly easy going, loyal and smart dog. He is a retired farm dog as his leg was injured and repaired but can no longer work. He still has speed on him though when he wants to use it!
Devil came to us with no commands taught however great recall. He learnt sit, shake, stay and lay in two weeks so very smart dog!
Mouse is a female kelpie x staffy, approximately 1 year old. She is an incredibly affectionate dog, loving nothing more than having cuddles and lots of play time. She loves to run and play with her foster sister and brothers. Mouse is very active, and would be more suited to a home with another dog to play with. She will require lots of fun walks that incorporate training and ball throwing (which she loves).
