Meet the delightful and smiley Flicka, a young Kelpie x Border Collie. She is on the smaller side and has a stunning long hair coat, tri colour Black and Tan with white chest.

Flicka is one year old and is thriving since coming in to care. She can sit, drop and is learning to stay. Her recall is improving.

Flicka is house trained and crate trained. She is settled in her crate and does not make a sound over night until you greet her again in the morning.

Flicka loves all people, humans and dogs. She is also great with kids. She plays well with her two foster sisters, puppy foster brother, and loves snuggling up to sister Stella.

Flicka is an energetic and happy girl. She loves going for walks, runs and paddling around in the water. She can fetch balls and sticks and brings them back most of the time. She has a gorgeous, very waggy tail and this sweet natured girl always has a smile on her face.

Flicka enjoys a good smooch of a night time, and is ok by herself for periods of time throughout the day, as long as she is included in her family’s life; you won’t find a dog who is better at greeting you when you arrive home!

Flicka would suit a single, couple or family. She would enjoy having a doggy friend, but would also be ok in a single dog household.

Most of all Flicka wants a home and forever family who will continue to work on her training and understands the physical and mental stimulation needs of her breed; as well as love and care for her and treat her as a valued family member.  She has plenty of love to give and will be an excellent new addition for whoever adopts her.

Axel is the most easy going and relaxed little boy you could ever hope to meet. Nick-named Grandpa Graham, at 8 months of age he displays a cool, calm, laid back and mature personality which you would see in a much, much older dog. Axel is AMAZING! A super fast learner – He already knows sit, has great recall, and he waits patiently for his food. He has some of the best manners that we have seen in a dog in a long time. Axel is a very small Kelpie x, at 8 months of age, he is about the size of a 5 month old. We don’t think he will grow much more.
