I CANT STRESS THIS POINT ENOUGH...............Prior to taking your new dog home, please ensure that you have a secure, escape-proof pen for them to be safely housed in so that they can settle in and bond to you and your property.  I DO NOT encourage tethering a dog!  This 'bonding' can take several weeks, and if dogs are given 'free reign' too soon they will soon learn to roam/wander onto neighbouring properties... bad habits are very hard to break, it's easier to prevent them from learning them in the first place. 

Slowly, slowly... it takes time , sometimes months, to introduce them to new properties so that they know to stay where they are supposed to be.

Please Note:  Our priority is to place the dogs into the situations which are right for them, which is not always the first people to enquire.  No offence to those who arent chosen to potentially adopt the dog in question. 

**Adopted** Ciara 3 yrs female
(Companion on acreage)

Ciara is a lovely young girl who was raised with a family and as such is well socialised and well handled. She would ideally suit a rural situation as a companion dog, an existing maremma friend would be nice.

Adoption fee $500

Angel 8 yrs female
(good on acreage)

Angel is looking for a 'working' situation as she has proven herself around goats/sheep and poultry. She is aloof and wary of strangers, and will need to be slowly integrated onto a new property. She is well handled and walks well on lead. Angel is currently guarding my poultry area with Mondo. Fencing is required.

Adoption fee $500

Romeo 2 yrs male
(good around goats).

Even as a learner, Romeo has shown great potential as a working dog, he has been assessed around goats & sheep, and has shown great promise in alerting to any intruders to his paddock. He is not a dog for a beginner and some previous guardian dog experienced owners would be necessary.

Adoption fee $550

Max 7 yrs male
(Companion on acreage)

Max is a companion dog, would suit a rural property as a house guardian/pet. He is good around stock and respectful of good fences. He is well handled and will love his family. He will need formal introductions to people who visit regularly and will love them like family when he gets to know them.

Adoption fee $500

Mondo 3 yrs male
(Companion on acreage)

Mondo is looking for a companion home on acreage with good fencing. He has been assessed as good around goats and other dogs. He is well handled, walks well on lead and has a good nature. Mondo is currently guarding my poultry area with Angel.

A 'doggie aware' family would suit Mondo best and he will shine in a new environment.

Adoption fee $500

**Adoption Pending** Chucky - male 4 yrs old
(Companion on acreage)

Gorgeous friendly fellow, who is currently free living on acreage. Loves his water so would ideally like a puddle to play in. Good with stock and poultry however, not a 'working' stock dog.

Adoption fee - $500

Daisy - female 6 months old

Expressions of Interest are being accepted for Daisy who has recently come into care. She is not and never will be a 'working' dog. She is a companion (family dog) currently living on acreage and as such still has a lot of learning and growing to do. She is special needs at the moment as she is recovering from a broken leg, but she will be fine and a beautiful addition to any family. Adoption fee - on application. If you are interested and think you have the ideal situation for Daisy please contact Andrea. 0418171896
