Chips --- (posted 11/1/2020) ---
Chips is a gorgeous and affectionate boy who is a special needs BC.
Only a home that is experienced with anxious dogs, and which can
demonstrate that they have an appropriate strategy for his ongoing
management will be considered. Babies and children can't be included
in the mix. Chips missed his puppy socialisation
window, and extensive efforts to remedy this have had no success.
Chips is scared of anything new, including the outside world, children, other
dogs, - the only fear he doesn't have is of noise. So Chips is hoping for a life at home,
where he is not expected to go for walks to the park, or runs on the
beach, but instead have games of fetch in the backyard with people he
loves. Chips is on behavioural medication and this will need to be
continued, along with careful management of his interaction with the
world. If you think that Chips would fit into your household please
contact Alexis at email@example.com for more info.
2 pups --- (posted 3/2/2020) ---
If you are an experienced BC home with time and empathy for a special
needs puppy, there are two who will be looking for a home in 3 weeks,
when they reach 8 weeks old. These two pups are blind, due to a
congential defect which has prevented development of their eyes. They
will never be able to see, and a decision has been made to seek a home
that is able and prepared to give them the extra care, life-long, that
they will need. They will still grow into active, mischievious,
activity loving dogs, and will need to be helped to learn how to
navigate the world, and given extra training and management as well.
If you think you are up for this challenge, please contact Dom on 0417
247 064. Note that they are not available until they are 8 weeks of age.
They are, as yet, unnamed.
Zelda and Link --- (posted 10/2/2020) ---
This pair's family circumstances have changed and they need to find a
new home. Both are very loving and affectionate with people. (Link
avoids children). Neither of them are social with other dogs they do
not know. They have a moderate level of training, and both are
excited when walking and pull on the lead.
Zelda is very energetic and loves frisbee and water play, loves
kids and snuggles, doesn't like storms, fireworks or getting her feet
Link was a rescue as a puppy and had a rough start in life, from
this he has lost several teeth and has some issues with touching him
around certain areas on his body. He really wants to be loved.
A home where they can be kept together is sought. If you are afer a
ready-made BC family then please contact Mitch for more info at
Reggie --- (posted 25/2/2020) ---
Reggie is a charming boy who lives happily with a family with small
children. Unfortunately, the increase in time needing to be spent with
the children has reduced the time that is spent with Reggie, and he
barks a lot at any distractions. Reggie needs a home with a family who
will give him ongoing management and training. He has only very basic
training at the moment, he doesn't always come when called and he
isn't housetrained, so there is a bit of work to be done. He isn't
phased by the family cat, and he isn't concerned about storms. Reggie has a
sun-affected nose, which will need ongoing treatment. If you would
like a boy who is full of energy, looking for friends and things to
do, then Reggie might be right for you. For more info please contact
Stacey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Amigo --- (posted 26/2/2020) ---
Amigo is a beautiful but difficult boy who needs an experienced adult
home with a commitment to his ongoing management. Amigo is an anxious
boy with a strong herding instinct, serious resource guarding issues and very
poor social skills with other dogs. A home with no children and
experienced adult owners is needed. On the positive side, he is a
super smart boy who can cope with stacked commands. He learns very
fast. He loves his rope toy and his ball, and he loves his people.
If you are looking for a young BC with lots of potential, but also are
prepared to manage his issues, then please contact Helen on 0403 024 504
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
