Cash --- (posted 29/12/2018) ---

Cash is a stunning young boy who needs an experienced and committed BC home with no small children and preferably no other dogs. Cash is extremely affectionate and is never far away from his favourite people. Cash is extremely intelligent and learns fast when adopting modern reinforcement-based training. Cash struggles with anxiety (not serious separation anxiety) especially with strange sounds and scary objects (e.g. kids on bikes, riding in cars etc). Cash is also an extreme resource guarder around food. He has a bite history due to the resource guarding. Although Cash will show bite inhibition initially (no punctures), if he feels this isn’t working, he will bite as hard as required. For this reason, he is currently in temporary housing with a positive reinforcement trainer who is working with Cash’s anxiety levels, handling issues and guarding triggers with good short-term results (videos available for viewing). With the right home, a good management plan, and support from a positive reinforcement trainer, Cash could a great addition to any home. Might you be that home? If you think you might, then please call Molly on 0402698961.

Jodi --- (posted 14/2/2018) ---

Jodi is a gorgeous black and white girl with one stunning blue eye, and a petite build. She is a girl with challenges, and a home experienced with BCs, and ready for a project, is sought. Jodi is a very smart, edgy girl who needs considerable behavioural training and management to help her cope with life. She's the dog version of a human stresshead, and her family will need to help her slowly settle and be able to be comfortable with the world. Jodi is not aggressive, but life isn't currently easy for her. A behavioural management program and medication will be required for some time. If you are an experienced BC home, looking for a challenge, and the rewards that come with helping a stressed BC, then please contact Julie on 0421 203 619.

Jax --- (posted 7/3/2019) ---

Jax is a lovely boy who just loves people. He is not well socialised with other dogs, and prefers to avoid them. He did grow up with another BC, but now he is the only dog, and he has become a bit of a yard guard dog. He will bark at problems. Jax is a little noise sensitve and will also bark at storms, like most BCs. Jax's family has changed and they want to find a new home that will have the time to spend with him, and give him the home he deserves. For more info please contact Nicole on 0422 692 952

Hunter --- (posted 22/4/2019) ---

Hunter is a loving, happy and smart BC who mostly co-exists well with a family, including children and some cats. Unfortunately Hunter has a resource-guarding issue with food, and he will use his teeth to re-inforce his possession. A home with experience with a resource guarder, with a preparedness to take on the management that this requires is sought. Hunter is toilet trained, used to being an indoor/outdoor dog, unphased by cats, walks on a lead, and likes to play fetch. He loves tunmmy scritches and long walks. Hunter is desexed and chipped. For more info on Hunter please contact Marina on 0425258237 or Martin on 0425266499, using sms.

Minti --- (posted 22/5/2019) ---

Minti is a very sweet, somewhat anxious girl who is not getting enough mental or physical stimulation in her current home. A home that wants to have her as part of their active lives every day is sought. Minti is OK with children, but her jumping and barking can scare them. She currently lives happily with a 9 yo boy and another dog. Minti can't resist stalking the other dog, which is not appreciated, or chasing her, when a ball is thrown. Minti is somewhat apprehensive when she encounters strange dogs when out walking, and a gentle program of continued positive re-inforcement for interactions with other dogs, would be a good approach. Minti loves chasing cats, and so a home that doesn't have cats would be best. Minti is still young and has a lot of love to give. She needs a home that will put a little time into her continued development. If you are looking for a new black and white family member who will love you unconditionally then maybe Minti is the girl for you. For more info please contact Abbey on 0490111333 or email artymamma@gmail.com

Bindi --- (posted 22/5/2019) ---

Bindi is a gorgeous classic girl with a bit of anxiety. Her family love her to bits, and they have realised that their lifestyle is leaving them no time to spend with Bindi. She is being left to herself, without sufficient mental or physical stimulation. Bindi is both active and reactive. She wants to be doing stuff! - and if presented with something that disconcerts her she may decide to bark at it to chase it away... which in turn disconcerts everyone around her. She currently lives with children and other animals, two dogs and two cats. This is pretty harmonious, although Bindi does like to herd the smaller dog. Bindi has a moderate level of training and walks on lead. What she now needs is a family who want to do agility or another active dog sport, where she can use her brain, and her legs, and also build her confidence. Bindi is currently on a low dose of anti-anxiety medication, which would need to be maintained. She is fully vetted and desexed. For more info on Bindi please contact Rowan on 0434606337

Duke --- (posted 1/6/2019) ---

Duke is a striking-looking young boy with blue merle highlights over a mostly white coat, and an 'eye-patch' on his left eye. Duke gets on well with other dogs, and he loves people! He enjoys learning, and loves company too. Sadly his family can no longer keep him. For more info on Duke please phone Susan on 0402 405 713.

Emily --- (posted 4/6/2019) ---

Emily is a very lovely girl. She loves her people (including children) and she lives happily with another dog. But if she is left alone she looks for ways out of the yard, over, under, through (including an electric fence). (A determined BC is very hard to contain in an ordinary yard.) She always comes home - but in almost all situations a loose dog cannot be countenanced. A home is sought which will have a very secure strategy for containing dogs, and will never let Emily think that she can escape again. Emily will walk with you without a lead. Emily is concerned about thunder storms, and would prefer to be indoors for a storm. Emily has been well cared for and has a vet history for vaccinations etc at her treating vets. For more info about Emily please contact Patrick on 0434 652 184

Bondi --- (posted 4/6/2019) ---

Bondi's family have had changes in circumstances which have made his remaining with them an impossible option. They are very sad, and only the best home will do for this boy. Bondi is an anxious boy and he needs an experienced BC home which understands that not all BCs welcome people or dogs that they don't know, first up. An ongoing program of socialisation with positive reinforcement is needed. Bondi is a very soft and sensitive boy. He can herd a rabbit back into its pen without touching it.... but something new and strange might worry him. Bondi has a strong herding instinct, (although gentle) and he loves a snuggle and a game of fetch (ball or frisbee). Bondi is used to being mostly outdoors, but enjoys sleeping inside. Cuddling on the couch would be his preference. Bondi would not be suitable for a home with small children, he is not an escape artist, and he does want a BC experienced home. For more info please contact Karen on 0411 461 395 or Brendan on 0405 641 756
