Harry and Ginny --- (posted 6/2/2021) ---
These two BCs have a pretty good life on a property, but their owner
thinks that they would do better with someone who was able to give
them more individual attention. Harry is a big sook who just loves
people. He is scared of and agressive towards smaller dogs, including
puppies. This may be able to be worked on, but a home with other
smaller dogs is not likely to work. Another anxiety is around anything
out of place, possibly a canine equivalent of OCD? (BCRA's unsupported
description). If something is left out of place in the house Harry
will pee on it - where ever it is. This issue needs management and
probably work with a behaviourist. Harry is not responsive to training
and also cannot be let near chickens.
Ginny is very, very smart, will catch a ball with her paws if she can.
Her issue is
constantly wanting attention. This is probably an anxious behaviour.
If you are not giving her attention she
will attempt to gain it, and her pawing, clawing, jumping and whinging need
management too. Her affection extends to mouth licks if she can catch
you unawares. Ginny also licks the furniture, which is also likely to
be linked to anxiety. She will shadow you unless she is prevented from
Both these dogs love the cats they know. An experienced BC home is
sought for these two. For more info on them please contact Chris at
Alfie --- (posted 1/3/2021) ---
Alfie is just a beautiful dog. He was intended to be an assistance dog
in his current home.
Unfortunately he has severe anxiety going in cars so he is unsuitable
and was not able to finish his training. This anxiety will need to be
managed, as he is greatly distressed in a car.
Basic and some trick commands
are well established and loves learning new things.
Alfie is great with kids, loves other dogs, cats and humans.
He is very food oriented so easy to train. His parents are both
working dogs and Alfie would make a great working dog as well.
He has 2 different coloured eyes that just make him more lovable.
Alfie's pedigree papers as well as vaccination records are available for his
Like any BC pup, Alfie is not a dog for the backyard and an occassional
walk. He will need ongoing training and management and inclusion in

Wilfred --- (posted 12/3/2021) ---
Wilfred is a 5 year old male: sleek, black and white, with a
distinctive black marking over his right eye. He is a sensitive dog
who is very intelligent, affectionate, and loyal. He loves being with
his owners and chasing balls. To a degree he probably suffers from
separation anxiety when not close everyone. He will need a lot of
interaction and is calmest when he can see and hear everyone.
Wilfred is great with adults and children from about 5 years old,
however, he has an aversion to children younger than this. It is
almost an awkwardness and he will remove himself if placed near one.
When our toddler was a baby, he gave a slight growl on two occasions
when placed near him.
He gets on very well with dogs that he knows, but it will take some
time to establish the relationship if you have another dog. Wilfred
finds socialising with other dogs stressful and this results in him
being reactive when meeting other dogs and will attempt to attack them
if not on a lead. Wilfred is highly intelligent and learns quickly. He
is very obedient and follows basic commands (sit, drop, stay etc.)
Recently, during our renovations, Wilfred escaped from our yard on two
occasions and aggressively barked at, and chassed, elderly men.
However, this aggression towards people has not been seen before.
Essentially, Wilfred is the greatest companion. He is literally the
best dog within our home setting but comes with complexities and
anxieties when in unfamiliar settings. This presents primarily as
aggression towards other dogs.
The right owner will need space, a secure yard, time and experience in

Amira --- (posted 11/4/2021) ---
Amira she is a beautiful 2 year old Border Collie x Catahoula. She is
mostly black with a small white bib and toes. She is
intelligent and well behaved dog. Both these breeds tend to be dogs
with a strong work drive, and she is a determined personality.
She never has torn up a shoe or couch but when you get home and she
wants attention she will not let up until you have given her some (and
Amira is a bit of an anxious dog, especially with people she
hasn’t met. She is currently living in an apartment and this is not
working. She barks at
people she doesn't know when they get in lifts with her, and people who are uncertain
of dogs cannot cope with this.
An experienced dog home, with the patience to help her with her
anxiety and to give her activity and ongoing training is sought. A
house rather than an apartment is desired.
Amira does like to play with an empty plastic bottle (which
she has been given). She is well house-trained, and she loves company.
She doesn't counter surf or steal food. She does jump up to say hello,
particularly until she gets kisses and a scritch.

Lucy --- (posted 26/4/2021) ---
Lucy is a sweet girl who loves all people including children and
littlies. Her family are moving and they are considering finding her a
home which will have more space and continued interaction with Lucy by
the household. Lucy has a strong herding instinct, and where she
currently resides she can get into strife due to her inability to
resist chasing the alpacas. A home that can manage her herding
instinct, and maybe harness it in games, would be best. For more
information on Lucy please contact Kiera on 0450954372
Lip --- (posted 21/4/2021) ---
Lip is a handsome young man who is truly one of a kind.
Originally destined to be a working dog, his life changed direction
when it was realised he was deaf. He has a beautiful white head,
spotty nose and two different coloured eyes. Its love at first sight
for everyone who meets him. He’s very smart, and has mastered hand
signals for sit, lie down, stay and come. With patience (and treats!)
he will be able to learn much more!
Lip is looking for a calm life with steady routine, as he displays
some signs of autistic behaviour. He wants a best friend and the more
time you spend with this boy, the more you learn to pick up on how
he’s feeling. Some days, a walk might not be on the cards if he’s
feeling too stressed, as the over stimulation can do more harm than
good. He also has quite a voice on him, and can bark when left alone,
so neighbours in close proximity won’t suit nor will a busy life.
He LOVES car rides, they’re a nice safe space for him and he’s content
to lie on a passengers lap and snooze the trip away. He loves puddles,
cuddles, food and play time, he would play all day if he could! He’s
currently trying some different medications to ease his anxiety and
let him switch off. He’s not yet desexed as it’s recommended for him
to wait until he’s one year old, but he’s microchipped and up to date
with all vaccinations, flea and heart worm. He shows early signs of
hip dysplasia, and is currently on mild pain relief.

Jazz --- (posted 6/5/2021) ---
Hi, my name is Jazz. I am an extremely cute, intelligent, fun loving,
7 months old, tri-coloured, short haired Border Collie. I am very
energetic & have a cheeky personality – apparently. Both my birth
parents were working dogs & I would love to be like them. My adoptive
parents brought me to their home when I was 2 months old & I have had
a very happy 5 months with them at their home on a 900sq metre block
but it seems I need more than they can give me (after all they are
I would love to live in a home with another dog who I could play with
in a large yard or perhaps on a small farm or acreage. I love going
for walks & walk very well on a leash. I love playing on the beach
with my friend Skye & chasing balls (although I don’t always bring
them back). I don’t chase birds (seagulls, magpies or Ibis) but I have
never met a chicken.
I am with my parents if they are inside but would be very happy
outside with a friend. I sleep inside but love cuddling my puppy
friends in bed (inside or outside) when I have sleep overs.
I have graduated from Puppy School & follow basic requests. I am fully
vaccinated, am up to date with my worm, tick & heart pills & am due to
be de-sexed in June(I don’t know what that means but Dad says it won’t
If you could be my forever family I would love to join you. I will
bring my own bed, blankets, toys & bowls & would promise to love you
as much as I love my current family.
If you would like to contact me you could email (not really sure what
that is either) me via my parents, Peta & Brian firstname.lastname@example.org
Woof woof, thank you
Diesel --- (posted 7/5/2021) ---
Diesel has sadly lost his owner, and he is in need of a new home which
will love him just as much as he was loved previously. He is a
purebred boy with a heavy long coat, fully vetted, desexed and chipped. He
is a well-behaved
boy, past puppy youthfulness, and with so much love to give. For more
info on Diesel please contact Nick at email@example.com
Raikou --- (posted 11/5/2021) ---
Raikou (kou) is 5 years old and he was rescued
when he was 9 months old. We were the first humans he had met
(other than the man that owned him) and our older dog (a
mastiff) was the first dog he had ever met. Because he had no
interaction with people, dogs or the world in such a vital time as a
puppy it has lead to some
issues. He has severe anxiety and OCD. (some meds have been trialled,
but help from a vet behaviourist seems needed)
He is great with other dogs (currently lives with two others) and
with kids - he has always
been around children and seems very gentle with them. Kou's primary issue is
separation anxiety when left alone. This has
lead to the decision to rehome him, as we are simply not able to be home
as much as
he needs us. He has obsessively started chasing shadows & running into
fences/doors when we aren’t home (neighbours have let us know). He has
completed four levels of dog training and is classified as a trained
dog in Australia. He is excellent off lead and has great recall, loves
fetch and would play for HOURS if he could, loves swimming & water. He
is housetrained and slept inside most of his life. He is scared of
loud noises ie. trucks/busses going by on walls & thunder which causes
him to cower. He is very submissive and scared of particular men in
hoods/hat or that are very tall. Only a home ideally set-up to manage
Kou's issues will do.

Patch --- (posted 11/5/2021) ---
Patch. 7yr old (human years) Black and white border collie, well
trained comes when called off the leash. Will sit and shake hands on
command. Loves walks and car rides especially the beach and water.
Absolute beautiful dog but when it
comes to storms,thunder, fireworks he barks and runs like crazy trying
to get at the noise. Family circumstances are changing and it is
attend to his needs when storms hit. Currently the only way to
fix this is to put him inside in the laundry with loud music to drown
out the thunder and storms which settle him.
This is his only flaw. Very good guard dog, not
a fan of anyone he doesn’t know coming through the gate at home.
Would make a fantastic companion especially to a
farmer and only the best, loving new home will do.
