Henry --- (posted 13/5/2020) ---
Henry (full name Henry-Alexander) is a handsome boy who can be calm,
time in the sun relaxing the day away, or snoozing the evening on his bed
in the living room or snuggling up for a bum
rub. He loves kids and is very good around children, and he loves
visitors. He also loves greeting you effusively first thing in the
morning! However, Henry is also a very anxious dog + ADHD, and without his
medications delivered at exactly the right timings, he's no longer
able to chillax and live the good life, and instead needing to busy
himself with barking at a wall, barking at you, barking at the
neighbours, or the usual bored behaviours of digging and chewing -
basically he just can't sit still.
Henry has some basic training, but his anxiety in early life has
impacted on his learning, and more work is needed.
His family continue to work on relaxation strategies with him,
practising stay/look as recommended by the behaviourist, telling him
when he's a good boy, rewarding relaxing behaviour etc. They are not
able to commit to his ongoping development, and so they are looking
for a family that can. This will allow Henry to develop to his capacity.
Henry is currently occassionally reactive to random dogs when out
walking. This can be improved, but it will also take time. (Henry really
Henry-Alexander's dream home would probably be somewhere quiet, with a
loving owner who is mostly home and able to give him the attention
(and regular medication)
he needs to be a good boy. For more info please contact
Summer --- (posted 9/7/2020) ---
Summer is an athletic and intelligent girl who has grown a bit bigger
than expected and who is much too full on for her 14 yo canine
companion at home. An active home which can continue her training and
development is sought. A suburban yard, where she will spend time
alone in the yard is not going to provide sufficient stimulation for
her. Ideally a home with a bit of space for her to run is sought.
Summer has a delightful mismarked face, half white and
half tricolour. Her makeup includes Jack Russell and Kelpie.
Summer sits, downs, sides, waits to be released to food, sits and waits at
gates, does not rush through doors - she has learned a lot. She is also full of beans and
needs activity or possibly another young dog to play with. She would
be fantastic at agility.
She is probably too much for children.
Be warned, she is currently a chewer and you have to keep Kong’s, hard toys and bullie
sticks or other chews available for her.. no soft toys... as she eats
the insides. She loves to play tug. For more info on Summer please
contact Lyn at 0416 236 001. Please text some info on your experience
with an active BC as an initial contact.
Oreo --- (posted 11/7/2020) ---
Oreo is a very affectionate and well-trained BC boy with a white face
and two stunning blue eyes. He currently lives with a family with
children, and he has always been good with them. He is a bit on the
timid side, and he is less happy with the doggy companions with whom
he is living. His anxious behaviours with another BC have led this
family to seek a new home for him where he will be the only dog, and
where he can continue to have his confidence developed with positive
reinforcement. Oreo will sit, come and wait to eat as requested. His
timidity does suggest that a home experienced with a similar
temperament dog would be to his advantage. For more info on Oreo
