Shep-2

Shep is a very happy, energetic dog, who loves to please. He is very intelligent and picks up commands quickly.
Shep has been great with everyone who meets him, however he does need a little “know” time first. He barks at strangers at first, then calms down.
Shep is very gentle with children and moves back when he is asked.

Thor2

A beautiful red Kelpie x Koolie, Thor is an enthusiastic and loving puppy who is sure to be a loyal family member. Just 6 months old Thor is quickly learning basic commands with the help of his favourite thing – food!

Thor loves to chase his brother Loki and foster brother Junior around the yard but also loves to curl up next to you or on your lap for some pats and love.

He enjoys playing in the puppy pool but takes some convincing at bathtime. He walks well on the lead and has shown only passing interest in the indoor cat.

With some more training and love Thor will make a wonderful, loving, lifetime companion.

New Gary Pic

Meet Gary, a happy, very good looking, loveable boy.

Gary is a very sweet boy with a lot of love to give to his new family. He just loves lots of pats and attention, especially at night when he is inside and chilling out with the family.  He’s wonderful with children but untested with cats. He is very well behaved and calm when inside, curling up on his bed and going to sleep, but not without a few good pats and cuddles first.

During the day, Gary loves to run and play and burn off all that wonderful kelpie energy.  He gets along well with and loves the company of other bigger dogs, especially female dogs, and play wrestles are a big hit with him.

Gary did not have any obedience training when he first came into our care, but he has proven to be a fast learner. Gary has learnt many commands and now has lovely manners and is very responsive, with a very good recall.

Gary is a highly active dog who would be suited to a family who lived on a big block, or acreage who could help burn off all that energy and give him the attention he loves to have.

Gary has a huge heart and really aims to please, you only have to look into his beautiful eyes to fall in love with him, he will certainly bring a lot of love and joy to his new owners.

Scullynew1

Scully is a super sweet and beautiful girl who is looking for an extra special home. She’s is a quiet, loyal and thoughtful girl who, once she gets to know you, will happily show you her love, affection and cheeky side. She is looking for a caring and compassionate home that willcontinue to build her confidence and understand that she is a bit shy when meeting new people and hearing sudden noises. Scully is not aggressive towards people at all and loves to seek approval from those she trusts.

Scully is a slight built mixed Border Collie x Kelpie which makes her very light on her feet and fast when running. Scully has been allowed to run in paddocks where she can chase rabbits and kangaroos and race her foster siblings. Scully loves racing around the backyard with her foster siblings and lazing in the sun but would love a daily walk, weather permitting.

Scully has impeccable manners, never snatching food and will sit and watch her meals being prepared. She sits on command for her meals/treats and is working on sitting at the street corner before proceeding when out walking.

Since Scully’s time in care, Scully has worked hard on her confidence and loves her pats and belly scratches. Scully has bonded well with her foster siblings, and loves to play in the backyard once she is settled into a new environment.

Scully is house trained and will happily relax on the floor next to her carers. She is also very happy sleeping outside with her foster siblings.

Scully is looking for a family who is can provide constant company, whether that be with another dog or someone who is home during the day. Scully has shared a house with young children but finds them a little intimidating so would prefer an older family or a retired couple.

If you think you are the perfect family home for Scully, we’d love to hear from you.
