Sally is a delightful girl but don’t be fooled by her age of 13yrs and 8 mths; she still has a bit of living to do yet. She is very spritely and would enjoy a walk but at the same time is very content to just lay by your feet keeping you company. Sally knows sit and is reasonable on lead. She has a strong character and likes to have a bit of a discussion and control on the day’s events. She would appear to be a Maltese x with possibly a Silky Terrier or Shih Tzu type dog.

Sally would suit a home with either another quiet dog or someone that works from home or is retired. At present she is in a home with 4 other dogs and 2 cats. She would only suit a home with a dog savvy cat that does not run but ignores her.

She would appear to be house trained and does not like to be too far from her owner so would need to be an inside dog. She will need regular grooming and hair appointments at the salon to keep her beautiful coat from getting tangles. Her general health is amazing for her age and her teeth are in remarkable condition.

Sally is eager to find a new home where she can live the life she feels is becoming to her, where she can dote on her carer or maybe that’s the other way around.

This cheeky chappy takes his name from the little white goatee he has on his chin. He came into ARF care from a country pound with his sister who will also be available for adoption soon.

Goat is a fantastic little pup who is both a snuggle bunny and an active play mate with his people and his toys especially when there is another dog on the end.

He is currently sharing his foster home with four other Kelpies who he absolutely adores. Goat is wise beyond his age because he has learnt so much from the older dogs, especially how to interact with other dogs.

Goat is crate trained and he loves to sleep in there quietly during the night. He is also toilet trained provided that, like all youngsters, he gets frequent trips outside. This is a smart little boy who loves to learn so his training is coming along very nicely and he will need ongoing training like any other pup.

Goat can be a little nervous of new things but is quite happy to take it all in. He would love a family to snuggle him on cold days and enjoy the sun outside on those warmer days.

It's a dog's life...

It’s a dog’s life…

Goat would love a family of his own, willing to continue his education and training that is necessary and provide him with physical and mental stimulation so that he will develop into the little star he is well on the way to becoming.

He can’t wait for his very own forever home; is it with you?

Zoo chillin’ in the Autumn leaves

Hello, my name is Zoo, I am a lively 8 month Kelpie boy looking for a loving home willing to keep me on the path to becoming a most wonderful companion  and keep me in shape, mentally and physically. My foster Mum says I might a just  little too smart for my own good but I do get quite tired when i am learning new things and am happy to snooze  or entertain myself between  walks and training sessions.

I love to play fetch whether it be with a ball or frisbee and am currently perfecting my  in air catching of that frisbee to impress and delight my new family.

I’m also  quite happy to play  with my toys on my own.

Zoo is still growing into his ears.

Zoo is still growing into his ears.

I currently live with two other Kelpies who I adore. We love to run around and play goofy games. At first I did used to get a bit too silly  when we played together but my foster mum has helped  me  learn how to settle myself down.

I now have lovely indoor manners, am house trained  and love to sleep quietly through the night in my crate.

I also have basic training and love learning new fun tricks, and of  course enjoy cuddles.

I look forward to meeting you.

Please contact my mum with some info about what you are after and we can have a meet and greet.

Cruz requires an experienced, dog oriented home who will be able to meet his needs. Only appropriate homes to keep him safe (super secure fencing) and provide appropriate training and exercise will be considered.

Adult Ibizan hound (1)

Cruz is an Ibizan Hound, a very rare breed in Australia. Ibizans (or Beezers as they are affectionately known) are loving, friendly, playful and people oriented dogs, who also get along well with other dogs. They need inclusion in the family along with another playful dog to burn off some of their energy to keep them happy and ensure that they don’t become bored and potentially destructive or noisy. The Ibizan is very athletic and can jump 6ft from a stand still and is an adept climber.

Cruz play (1)

Beezers are great at problem solving – so kitchen benches and even on top of the refrigerator are easy targets. They need to have their brain and body exercised DAILY to keep them happy (as well as a very secure yard of a minimum of 6ft). Beezers have a high prey drive and are therefore not suited to homes with small animals. They are also not a dog that you can let off-leash unless you are in a very secure fenced area. As the Beezer matures (mentally occurs much later than physically), it will need a good run every day but also will be content to have periods of chilling out. An affectionate and fun dog, the Beezer can be a rewarding member of the family however they are not a dog for everyone due to their high management needs. Apparently around the world they are used in dog high jumping, obedience, agility, lure coursing, hunting, etc.

Cruz2 (1)

Cruz is new into care but at 5 weeks is already showing amazing problem solving abilities. He worked out how to get around the house on his first adventure, he even knew that to get into the puppy pen for something, he would need to go to the far end of the puppy pen and go through the crate to get inside – he did this without any effort at all.

Cruz and Katie play (1)

Cruz is enjoying interacting and playing with the other dogs in the household as well as his littermate, Mika. Cruz is a sweet little fellow and is only just coming into his own and is ready to start life with an inclusive and active family that can meet his needs.

Cruz and Mika1-1 (1)

Mika is a dear affectionate little fellow who is a little shier than his confident and problem solving brother, Cruz. Mika loves a snuggle but then he also loves a game and exploring with the others. His confidence is building quickly and he too has shown ability to easily work out how to get around, though he tends to follow what the others are doing rather than heading off on his own for an adventure.
