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.

Rusty is a good natured and calm dog, who is also affectionate and responsive. He has good basic training, plus a few little tricks he’s learnt.

rustystanding-front

Rusty adores his lead and going for a walk, though he can be a little tense when meeting new dogs. He gets on well with most female dogs of a similar size and disposition; living with a female blue heeler and has been in foster care with a standard poodle. Rusty won’t tolerate cats and would not be good with other small pets.

Rusty is looking for a home with adults, where he will receive on going training, socialisation, plenty of walks and be fully involved with the family.

Wednesday's  ride from the Pound

Wednesday’s ride from the Pound

Has your playful dog been bored, and a bit lonely lately? Has he been giving you wistful and guilt-inducing looks that clearly say ‘a friend would be nice, right about now’? Then have I got just the dog for you!

Because as far as Wednesday is concerned, nothing, absolutely nothing is better than playing with dogs (actually, human pats are her other favourites, but we’ll get to that later)! She likes to play in the morning; she likes to play in the afternoons…

wednpals

She’s always ready for a game, and, if no one else is asking, she’ll get the game going by bopping them with her nose. You can watch her playing with her friends at https://vimeo.com/213484510, and here are her desperate attempts to play with an unwilling participant https://vimeo.com/215380959.

And yet, for such a happy, playful dog, Wednesday has a beautiful, calm temperament, and has been a delight to have in foster care.

wedzsu

She never complains, tries really hard to do what is asked of her, and will happily go to her bed for a nap, until someone—dog or human—is ready for a new adventure.

wedbff

Wednesday is also super smart, and quickly learned all the house rules, which she follows with no trouble, worked out the dog door, which she uses to take herself to the toilet, and learned to go into her crate on command within a couple of days, where she sleeps quietly at night.

wedball

She travels quietly in the car, has mastered walking on a loose lead because she wants all the treats (though she needs a quick reminder when first heading out), and, though a little unsure in new situations, she takes the general world view that if her human is happy, then she’s happy too.

Now to the aforementioned pats—Wednesday loves to know she is safe and loved. She never demands affection, but when it is forthcoming, she falls over herself in happiness (in fact, she’s learning that affection will keep coming, and there is no need to get so worked up about it). She thinks nighttime cuddles before bed are the absolute best, and she never wants them to end!

Oh, and bonus, she has never trashed anything, not even the hammock chairs that hang enticingly on the deck, nor the tempting washing drying in the sun.

wednesdaysnoot Wednesday is looking for a home where she will be allowed inside, to be part of family life, with a family prepared to continue her training to use that smarty-pants brain of hers.

She would really like an equally playful friend, but would cope as a single dog, provided her human is home a lot, and takes her on lots of playdates with dog friends, or to the dog park.

In return, Wednesday will be the most loving, loyal friend anyone could ask for!
