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 239 688


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 alexisu54@gmail.com for more info.


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 andymac1979@gmail.com


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 touched. 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 mitch1788@hotmail.com


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 sfullarton87@gmail.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 and reactive 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


Chas --- (posted 16/3/2020) ---

Chas is a stunning red and white girl whose family's circumstances have changed, and they have made the difficult decision to find her a new home. Chas has never been comfortable with children, and now her household has a young human in it, she is necessarily being excluded from spaces and interactions, and this is causing her stress and the family grief. Chas is supersmart, and loves to learn, and be with her person. She is a one person dog. A home where there are not small people for her to cope with is sought. Chas isn't keen on other dogs either, tho other pets don't worry her. For more info on Chas please contact Susanna at sruusila@gmail.com


Angus --- (posted 31/3/2020) ---

Angus is a young BC Kelpie cross boy who is seeking a home where he can be an only dog. Angus loves the offlead dog-beach, and if anyone has a ball to throwthey will have his attention! He loves people, and cuddles, and he walks well on a lead. He does't bark much, and is not scared of storms. He likes travelling in the car. His housetraining is solid too. Angus is currently living with another dog, a sibling. Their personalities are simply not a good match together. Angus is not well socialised with other dogs, and he will occassionally aggress to pre-empt an interaction. This isn't common, but occassional. An experienced home that has had unsocial dogs before and improved or managed their confidence and behaviour is needed. With somw work, his social skills may be able to be improved. For more info on Angus please contact Simon on 0439 465 786
