Hi Potential Adopter,

My name is Rusty and I am a middle-aged, though young at heart, gentleman.
There are 3 things in the world that make my day:
1. My human kisses and belly rub
2. Food and treats
3. The squeaky ball

I naturally love humans and want to obey everything you say; however, it is in my cattle dog’s DNA to be a little shy and wary of new things, so it will take me a little while to warm up to you. But if you give me a belly rub or scratch behind the ears, I will fall head-over-heels for you.

I love going out on walks short or long. I generally wear Halti (Head Collar) when out and about because this helps me to learn my leash manners and makes me look very dignified. So far on our walks, we have been working on coming when called, heeling on mommy’s left hand side and “leave” others/things along when told.

I am a good-natured dog (according to compliments from everyone who meets me) and very affectionate and responsive. This has helped me achieve very solid basic training, plus a few little tricks in between. I sit, drop, go to bed/crate, wait and stay on command as they make my foster mommy happy.

I am toilet trained and I know how to use a doggie-door. My boundaries are clear and I understand that I am not allowed on the sofa or bed, I let my human go through the door first and I wait until I am told to eat my dinner.

According to the Myers-Briggs personality types, I am more of a ISFJ– a defender/protector who is very dedicated and warm, always ready to defend my loved ones. This makes a great guard dog, yet hinders my ability in making doggie friends. We are currently working on my self control and motivation.

 Are you my new Mommy and Daddy?

Are you my new Mommy and Daddy?

Things I look for in my new home:
• I am ONLY baby in the house – this means no children, cats, bird or the like. I can entertain myself throughout the day if you work full-time and I will guard the house for you.
• Continuous training and development to help me improve my social skills.
• Regular exercises including long walks over the weekends.

flexli

Flex is a sweet, loyal and great little mate. He loves to follow his people around and just sit next to them. While he isn’t demanding or clingy, he loves pats and cuddles and will relax quite happily in your arms without protest.

flexsit

Flex also loves time to go outside and explore and play games with his sister and three housemates. He is very respectful of the older dogs but still tries to get a game out of them every now and then and usually succeeds.

cardinbothball

Flex loves the company of children and would be a great little companion. He is already well on the way to being housetrained, is and learning lots of new skills. He loves visiting the café….mainly for the pats and cuddles.

flexche

Like all puppies Flex will need training to become a perfect canine citizen, but he will fit into a wide range of homes who have lots of love and attention to give.

bungch

Bungee is a fun and inquisitive young girl. She loves to play with other dogs, especially her Rottweiler housemate, but also loves to go out and explore the yard and soak up the sun. She is a confident girl who gets along well with people, kids and dogs alike and loves getting out and about.

bungncard

Bungee is well on the way to being housetrained using the dog door most of the time when she needs to go out. She is super smart and learns quickly, and just loves life!

bungfl

Bungee would suit a wide range of homes but the important things will be that she is part of the family and taken out on adventures. Like all pups she will need training to become a perfect canine citizen, but this should be a lot of fun with this girl.

He plays well with the resident dogs and has learned respect for his elders, and they have learned to put up with his puppy clumsiness and leggy bounding.

Look who's  nearest the heater!

Napoleon is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST) once he has completed his quarantine and vet work

nap_first

Napoleon is a relaxed little dog, very social with both people and other dogs.  He will want another dog friend in his new home to play with as he doesn’t like being on his own when his owner goes out. He loves going for a walk and is very enthusiastic but needs some practice walking with his person instead of trying to charge ahead.

nap with tongue

He is toilet trained, sleeps in his bed quietly all night, and is happy to sleep in on the cold winter mornings. He has a sunny nature and is full of fun.

More about Napoleon when he has been in care a bit longer.
