Jodi --- (posted 14/2/2018) ---

Jodi is a gorgeous black and white girl with one stunning blue eye, and a petite build. She is a girl with challenges, and a home experienced with BCs, and ready for a project, is sought. Jodi is a very smart, edgy girl who needs considerable behavioural training and management to help her cope with life. She's the dog version of a human stresshead, and her family will need to help her slowly settle and be able to be comfortable with the world. Jodi is not aggressive, but life isn't currently easy for her. A behavioural management program and medication will be required for some time. If you are an experienced BC home, looking for a challenge, and the rewards that come with helping a stressed BC, then please contact Julie on 0421 203 619.


Jax --- (posted 7/3/2019) ---

Jax is a lovely boy who just loves people. He is not well socialised with other dogs, and prefers to avoid them. He did grow up with another BC, but now he is the only dog, and he has become a bit of a yard guard dog. He will bark at problems. Jax is a little noise sensitve and will also bark at storms, like most BCs. Jax's family has changed and they want to find a new home that will have the time to spend with him, and give him the home he deserves. For more info please contact Nicole on 0422 692 952


Hunter --- (posted 22/4/2019) ---

Hunter is a loving, happy and smart BC who mostly co-exists well with a family, including children and some cats. Unfortunately Hunter has a resource-guarding issue with food, and he will use his teeth to re-inforce his possession. A home with experience with a resource guarder, with a preparedness to take on the management that this requires is sought. Hunter is toilet trained, used to being an indoor/outdoor dog, unphased by cats, walks on a lead, and likes to play fetch. He loves tunmmy scritches and long walks. Hunter is desexed and chipped. For more info on Hunter please contact Marina on 0425258237 or Martin on 0425266499, using sms.


Minti --- (posted 22/5/2019) ---

Minti is a very sweet, somewhat anxious girl who is not getting enough mental or physical stimulation in her current home. A home that wants to have her as part of their active lives every day is sought. Minti is OK with children, but her jumping and barking can scare them. She currently lives happily with a 9 yo boy and another dog. Minti can't resist stalking the other dog, which is not appreciated, or chasing her, when a ball is thrown. Minti is somewhat apprehensive when she encounters strange dogs when out walking, and a gentle program of continued positive re-inforcement for interactions with other dogs, would be a good approach. Minti loves chasing cats, and so a home that doesn't have cats would be best. Minti is still young and has a lot of love to give. She needs a home that will put a little time into her continued development. If you are looking for a new black and white family member who will love you unconditionally then maybe Minti is the girl for you. For more info please contact Abbey on 0490111333 or email artymamma@gmail.com


Emily --- (posted 4/6/2019) ---

Emily is a very lovely girl. She loves her people (including children) and she lives happily with another dog. But if she is left alone she looks for ways out of the yard, over, under, through (including an electric fence). (A determined BC is very hard to contain in an ordinary yard.) She always comes home - but in almost all situations a loose dog cannot be countenanced. A home is sought which will have a very secure strategy for containing dogs, and will never let Emily think that she can escape again. Emily will walk with you without a lead. Emily is concerned about thunder storms, and would prefer to be indoors for a storm. Emily has been well cared for and has a vet history for vaccinations etc at her treating vets. For more info about Emily please contact Patrick on 0434 652 184


Bondi --- (posted 4/6/2019) ---

Bondi's family have had changes in circumstances which have made his remaining with them an impossible option. They are very sad, and only the best home will do for this boy. Bondi is an anxious boy and he needs an experienced BC home which understands that not all BCs welcome people or dogs that they don't know, first up. An ongoing program of socialisation with positive reinforcement is needed. Bondi is a very soft and sensitive boy. He can herd a rabbit back into its pen without touching it.... but something new and strange might worry him. Bondi has a strong herding instinct, (although gentle) and he loves a snuggle and a game of fetch (ball or frisbee). Bondi is used to being mostly outdoors, but enjoys sleeping inside. Cuddling on the couch would be his preference. Bondi would not be suitable for a home with small children, he is not an escape artist, and he does want a BC experienced home. For more info please contact Karen on 0411 461 395 or Brendan on 0405 641 756


Darby --- (posted 20/7/2019) ---

Darby is a 6 year old, desexed wheaten border collie. He wants to be a lap dog, and is extremely cuddly, loyal and loving. He is currently living with two young children, and he obeys them and loves to have them climb all over him and cuddle him. He also lives with two cats and an older kelpie. He will chase the cats out of the yard and has started to get rough with the kelpie as she has aged; we think this is due to jealousy. She has been hurt by him, and this is why we are sadly looking at rehoming him. He would make an awful working dog, and would be suited to a home that has no other pets, and with a family that would cuddle him and play with him daily. He loves to go for walks and runs. We love him dearly but he is not getting the love and attention he needs and deserves, and we want him to have a happy life, rather than just a life. He is not good with other dogs or cats, and will need a strong owner that can manage him when he is out for walks. He will bark and pull at other dogs he sees out. He is built like a tank. His attitude to other dogs and to cats is his only fault, because he really has a huge heart full of love for his people. If you would be interested in Darby, I can be contacted on 0414 414 637. We are not in a rush to rehome him; we want him to go to the right family. We are located on the Gold Coast. Emily.
