Stella --- (posted 27/9/2019) ---
Stella is a lovely but anxious BC kelpie cross. She is a typical
anxious girl, and worries about people and things that she doesn't
know. She is particular worried by small people, and so a family with
no small children, who are prepared to manage an anxious girl is
sought. Stella loves walks, and activity, and of course, the people
she knows. A new home, or a foster home is sought. For more
information please contact Louisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bear --- (posted 10/12/2019) ---
Bear appears a lovely and playful BC boy, only 8 months old. However Bear
has serious behavioural issues and is only a prospect for an experienced
and committed BC savvy home. Whilst generally easy to manage, getting on
OK with other dogs, and loving being with people, Bear has no bite
inhibition, and when dealing with high value treats he has bitten
people, and needs careful management, to help him develop and be a
safe dog to live with. Bear is a gorgeous boy, easy to fall for. But
he needs just the right home, with experience to teach him boundaries
and develop his character in positive ways. If you have experience
with problematic BCs and are ready for a challenge, this boy might be
what you are looking for ? For more info please contact Emily on 0425
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.
Meeko and Godzilla --- (posted 11/1/2020) ---
Meeko and Godzilla are a young pair of boys (one mostly black, and the
other classic BC black and white markings) who's family have had a
change in circumstances, and so they need new home that can commit to
their ongoing management and development. Both are microchipped and
fully vetted. They love people, and cuddles, and walk well on a lead.
They don't bark much, and are not scared of storms, they travel well
in the car, and they are housetrained. A large group in the house
doesn't unsettle them, they are generally well-behaved boys. A home
that can take the pair together is sought. If you would like to get
more info on this ready-made black and white doggy family, then please
contact Katherine at firstname.lastname@example.org
Brutus --- (posted 24/1/2020) ---
Brutus's tough sounding name belies his soft affectionate nature. He
loves people, and when he knows you are his companion he will stick
with you. He also gets along well with other dogs. Brutus is unhappy
in storms and heavy rain, and will pace around the house. Like many
BCs he is a little anxious in strange situations, and also like most
BCs he loves to play, especially fetch and he loves pats and scritches
and snuggles. Brutus is a big loving bear who needs a new family who
have time to spend with him, particularly to make him part of their
life, and undertake activities to keep him mentally and physically
stimulated. For more info on Brutus please contact Jon on 0412917423
or Jade on 0498459965
Roy --- (posted 25/1/2020) ---
Roy is an affectionate mature boy who loves all people, including
children. Roy gets along OK with similar sized and larger dogs, but he
isn't keen on small dogs. Unfortunately his current family's circumstances have
changed and he is not getting the company that he desires. Roy doesn't
have any vices, but he is afraid of storms. During a storm, his sole
goal is to be with a person, and if possible, lie under a table at
their feet. If there isn't anyone home, then Roy will do whatever it
takes to leave the yard, and find someone else who can keep him
company til the storm passes. A home where there is someone home most
of the time, and who might have the flexibility not to leave Roy alone when
a storm is on its way, is sought. Roy loves to play fetch with a
tennis ball, and he also loves splashing around his plastic shell pool.
If are looking for an adult BC, and think you could give Roy the
companionship he craves, then please contact Andy on 0420306324 or
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.
Henry --- (posted 9/2/2020) ---
Henry is a loving, snuggly and happy boy with humans young and old. He
sleeps inside at night where he can relax in his bed or near his
He is an active dog, with a very high retrieve drive for a ball. Henry
has Border Collie Collapse Syndrome so high intensity ball throwing
tires him quickly.
Henry is on medication for general anxiety and is recommended that
this should continue. Henry has a severe anxiety of other dogs he has
not met before, but gets on extremely well with his group of familiar,
long term dog pals.
He would be best suited as a sole pet or with a fellow active, very
friendly dog whom he can learn to trust. He requires a home
environment where he can avoid other dogs passing him by as much as
possible, or with loving owners who have the time and the will to work
on desensitising Henry’s reactions to new dogs. Henry loves
long walks and is very happy travelling in the car, but causes quite the
scene when other dogs are in sight.
Our circumstances have changed and we are now sadly unable to give
Henry a happy and relaxed home environment or the time he deserves to
spend with other loving humans.
Contact Emma via email for more info, at email@example.com
Gypsy --- (posted 9/2/2020) ---
Gypsy is a lovely, happy boy, coming up 12 months. He is an
interesting looking boy too, with tricolour highlights over a heavily
ticked blue and white coat. Gypsy is desexed,
microchipped, and up with all his vaccinations. There is a cat in his
curent household that he
loved to chase and harass.
The cat seems to enjoy teasing.
Gypsy has been to puppy school and is a friendly social dog. He hates
water, loves walks and loves chasing the ball!! He is a bit too clever for his own good sometimes.
Gypsy loves meeting other dogs too, and his recall is still a work in
progress. He gets very easily distracted. He barks at the usual things -
at people walking past, also barks at the mower. He is toilet trained, but
doesn’t spend a lot of time inside, and currently is not left
unsupervised inside. Gypsy needs a family with more time for him, to
continue his training and development. A family with a doggy friend
would be preferred. For more info on Gypsy please contact Kim at
Milou --- (posted 10/2/2020) ---
Milou is a very beautiful and active girl who is also very smart. She
loves people, and interacting with them, and with other dogs. However
Milou has an independent streak which has resulted in her not yet
learning to come when called (at least not if she is having fun) and
also to escape from the yard looking for the fun - usually by heading
to the creek one block away to play in the water. An experienced BC-savvy
home which will prevent her from escaping, and give her the exercise
and stimulation that she needs is sought. Consistent work on her
recall, possibly by using a new word as the command, is also going to
be needed is she is ever to be able to play off lead outside the yard.
Only the best home with do for this girl. If you think you have what
it takes to make this supersmart BC girl part of your family and can commit
to providing a lifestyle where she is not a backyard dog, then please
contact Josie for more information, 0427 846 243
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
Poppy --- (posted 17/2/2020) ---
Poppy is a gorgeous chocolate and white 7 month old female. She is
beautiful, smart, toilet trained within a few days, and learned to use
the doggy door within a week or two. She is great with other dogs,
humans and children. She has been well looked after, is spayed and up
to date with vaccinations. Poppy is a very sweet natured dog during
the day. However, at approximately 3 months, she started displaying
obsessive behaviour, looking up at the ceiling, and running around,
barking at dusk. Poppy is on medication at the moment, but this is to
be reviewed. Her behavioural issues mean that she needs an experienced
home, perhaps with children or another dog to distract her. This
behaviour probably cannot be remedied, but may be managed. If you
would like a sweet little BC girl, who is terrific during the day, but
has issues at dusk, (she sleeps through the night), then please
contact Karyn for more info on 0412108313
Louie --- (posted 18/2/2020) ---
Louie is an attractive young boy with aggression issues, which make him
only suitable for an experienced BC home with no children. Louie
was attacked by another dog when he was 1 yo, and he has been mentally
scarred by this. He can cope with seeing other dogs in the distance
when out walking, but he cannot happily interact with them. Muzzling
him for walks would be an option, although this will probably increase
his stress level. Louie is also very reactive, and a startling
interaction from a person (including children) can result in them
getting bitten. Louie is a loving and gentle soul when he isn't
triggered to react in fear. He loves fetch and tug and he loves being
around people and sleeping inside. Louie has a good level of basic training
and is very responsive to training. Louie would make a loving and excellent
companion for the right person. For more info on this boy, please
contact James on 0413 220 370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ruby --- (posted 19/2/2020) ---
Ruby is a sweet little girl, with beautiful eyes and a glossy,
slightly curly coat. She is a typical young BC, quick to learn, loves
to be with you, and loves to run! Ruby is also typical in that she has
an anxious nature, and is easily startled by leaf blowing past
unexpectedly, and doesn't like storms or lawn mowers. Her anxiety
extends to babies and small children - she doesn't know what they are!
She will snap at children in an effort to keep them at a distance.
A home with no small children or babies, and a strategy to manage her
interaction with any visitors, is sought.
For more info please contact Jane on 0409 536 105
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 email@example.com
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
Angus and Hamish --- (posted 27/2/2020) ---
Looking for a new home are a pair of stunning young male BCs. They will
be rehomed together, if possible, but excellent homes may be
considered for them singly.
Angus is chocolate and white with long hair, blue eyes and striking
markings. He is nearly 3 years old. He is a beautiful soul, everyone loves him.
Lovely temperament. Angus does not like storms, and settles if crated
when they occur.
Hamish is wheaten (red) and white, and cute as a button, head strong,
and nearly 1 year old. He loves to play fetch, and needs more training,
He has an issue with aerosol cans, eg air freshener and he jumps up when you go to spray.
They both love off-leash beach running and going in the water.
They have bonded well, but could be separated for the right homes.
Neither of them like the leaf blower.
They have both been brought up since pups with 2 rescue cats and have no
issues with them. Both will benefit from ongoing training, and of
course, plenty of exercise.
For more info on these two lovely boys please contact Allyson at
Country girl --- (posted 27/2/2020) ---
This sweet red and white girl has been rehomed from a property in the
country, and she is struggling to settle in her new home, as she is overwhelmed by the
changes in her world. Her life experience is minimal.
Walking on lead is new. Roads and cars are new. People and other
animals that she hasn't met before are all new. This girl needs a home
which can accomodate her, initially to let her quietly settle into a new
environment with no time pressures - it might take a week, it might
take longer. And then she needs a gradual introduction to her new
world, with some positive training, and learning to enjoy a game, and
developing some self-confidence. If you are dog-savvy home with no
other dogs, or the capacity to manage your dogs so that they can be
quiet and alone and feel safe if they need to be, then you might be just what this
girl needs. If you are interested in helping this girl, please phone
Julie on 0421 203 619 between 8:30am and 8:30pm (please) or email
