Hendy is a sweet natured and gentle elderly kelpie who is looking for a new home where she can enjoy human company and take life easy. She is still playful with a spring in her step, but without the energy and high demands of a younger dog.
Timid and shy by nature she likes a slow introduction and gentle handling, in return she will give you lots of snuggles and loyalty. She loves pats and being ticked behind the ears.
Having been an outside dog most of her life she is a little unsure of being indoors and has had little traditional training, but with positive encouragement she is becoming more comfortable and enjoys her big warm bed, she is house trained. Hendy is very smart, she responds to commands and correction, she is learning the basics and has nice manners and wants to learn to do the right thing. She hasn’t got a destructive side to her, no chewing or digging and isn’t interested in escaping.
All Hendy wants and needs is a peaceful household with someone she can be with during the day, she doesn’t stress when left alone but would ideally like some company during the day. She is fine with other dogs but isn’t interested in playing. She loves people!

Little miss Asha just loves to be with you. She is very focused on people and doesn’t often let you out of her sight. She is a beautiful sweet natured and happy young girl who loves cuddles and kisses. She is still a puppy and can get quite excitable, but she quickly calms down.
Asha adores other dogs, and loves to have a play. She hasn’t shown too much of an interest with toys but does chase her foster sister when she is playing fetch, so she may decide she would like to join in on the action eventually.
Asha has learnt how to sit, drop, shake hands, use the doggy door and walk beautifully on lead. She does tend to pull a bit when she sees another person or dog, she appears to walk and behave better when wearing a harness.
Overall Asha is a lovely young girl and will make a loyal companion.

Skipper is adorable. Since being in foster care he has been absolutely perfect.
Skipper loves going for walks, he does pulls on the lead a little bit especially when he spots a tree he wants to check out but he soon settles once the excitement of being out for a walk wears off – he will need some training in this area
He also loves going for a run on the beach where he can get to play with other dogs . He loves to meet other dogs big or small and gets on well with all of them whatever the size.
Skipper likes to come inside when invited and is quite happy to stretch out on the floor by your feet. When it’s bed time he goes outside on the verandah to his bed with no problems .
This boy is very laid-back he is not a barker, he’s good with children and he likes to play ball (doesn’t always bring it back when playing) he wants to be chased with it.
Skipper hasn’t been tested around cats but would definitely be suitable for a home with another dog – he would love it .
Skipper will sit and wait for his dinner and is not aggressive around food you can put your hand in his dish, he is also not fussy with his food.
This boy is just gorgeous and will make someone a wonderful companion.
