Maggie Mae and Eddie --- (posted 30/11/2020) ---
This affectionate and attention seeking pair are looking for a new
home due to a change in circumstances for their owner. A home is
sought for the two of them together, as they are very attached to each
other. Eddie is the father and Maggie Mae was one of his pups
They need ongoing mental and physical stimulation, and to be part of a
new family. They are not dogs to be left in a backyard. They are both
very intelligent, they love people and they love activity, including
outings, swimming and walks. A home with no small children is sought
as Maggie Mae was hurt by a child when she was a pup and she is wary
of little people.

Harley and Oliver --- (posted 30/11/2020) ---
This pair are in need of a new home due to unforeseen family
circumstances. A home is sought which can take them as a pair, as
Oliver gets anxious when he doesn't know where Harley is. Oliver also
doesn't get along with other dogs, apart from Harley so management of
situations where other dogs might be encountered will be needed.
Oliver has sad eyes which make you just want to give him a hug. He
loves to run and play, and he is a great jumper. Harley is on the
tall side for a BC, a beautiful boy with a happy, dopey face. He loves
his food, and will do anything for a treat. Both dogs are currently
living in a home with a 1 year old, in whom they have shown no
interest. However, neither of them has much experience with young
children and a home with no young children is sought. For more info on
this pair please contact Cara by text in the first instance on 0430
Rex --- (posted 3/1/2021) ---
"Rex" 18 month old Male BC. Desexed, microchipped and vaccinated.
Not suitable for a home with children. Older teens and above only as
he has bitten a child recently and gets nippy with my toddler.
Is used to cats but will follow/herd them about the house and outside.
Fine when they're sleeping. Will chase horses/sheep etc, has been
kicked before from chasing. This could be trained out of him.
Good with other dogs, can be unsure of larger dogs until he gets to
Will bond with one person and be loyal to them. Loves affection and
attention from his human. Needs this daily to be happy.
Walks okay using a halti. Knows sit and stay (most of the time)
doesn't have good recall and needs alot of training time put in.
Stays in my yard when I'm not home and he is capable of jumping my
fence. If I am home and leave the gate open he will go for a brief
wander but always returns home within 5-10 minutes.
Forever home needed. Only enquire if you have time to spend with him
and on his training.
Call me if interested in meeting Rex. Bec 0478112195
Oreo --- (posted 4/1/2021) ---
Oreo is a 3 year old male, classically marked border collie with brown
eyes and a shiny, straight coat.
He is affectionate, loyal and sensitive with the two loving adults
he’s been living with in a suburban setting.
He is very good with adult visitors, but is frightened of children and
has growled and nipped at them as a warning in the past. He has never
bitten anyone, but it’s clear he is unhappy and under stress in this
environment. A home with children or frequent young visitors will not
be suitable for him.
A quieter, more rural setting is needed for Oreo, as he also has noise
sensitivity & anxiety (parties, fireworks, construction noise,
lawnmowers, heavy traffic noise etc)
Oreo has been desexed, is up to date with his vaccinations and is
microchipped (but not registered).
He is temperamental towards other dogs and needs a home where he will
be the only dog. He can be better with them when
on a leash and being guided - he is much more of a people person - but
in his home he needs to be the only dog.
Oreo has been living on a diet of raw chicken, vegetables, raw eggs
and grains so this should be maintained. He has slept inside his whole life.
Oreo is very obedient and follows commands easily- sit, drop, roll
over, stand, around himself, circling you, through your legs, stay
(including at dinner time while you put food down), come, fetch &
give. Practice these daily and also incorporate new tricks to keep his
He’ll be your shadow and make a fantastic companion, following you
everywhere you go.
His favourite activities are playing under the hose & playing fetch-
he is extremely focused and needs to practice fetch daily. Walks
should also be very regular, so someone willing to exercise his body
and mind daily is required.
If you’re a peaceful, adult-only household wanting a loving companion,
Oreo could be the right dog for you.

Alice --- (posted 8/1/2021) ---
Alice is a sleek, black and white girl with classical markings. She
is a dog with limited social skills, and this manifests in her
inability to get along with other dogs. Her attempts to play with
other dogs result in fights, and this is happening in her own
multi-dog household. A home where she can be an only dog, and be
supported to develop some better self-confidence and social skills is
sought. Alice has no experience with cats. With adults, Alice loves to
play and exercise. She pulls a bit on lead, and is used to walking on
a head-collar. She is too reactive for a home with any small children.
If you have experience with an anxious working dog, and if you are
looking for a young, active dog to become the centre of your world, then
Alice might be just what you need. For more info on Alice
please contact Lee (please text first) on 0416236787
River --- (posted 24/1/2021) ---
River is a beautiful petite girl who has some anxiety issues and a
medium level of training. Her reliability with a recall, for example,
varies depending on distractions and incentives. (If you are holding
her toy you will have no trouble.)
She adores her male owner and is very responsive to him. Considerably
less so to others.
Her anxiety triggers include some other dogs, and some people, and she
needs a child-free home with BC experience to set a routine and work on her
self-confidence to try to reduce her concerns. A regime of training
with appropriate positive incentives, in her case games, will support
this and improve her manners. Currently she jumps up when excited and
she pulls on lead when walking.
She loves to play! Massive fan of tug of war and fetching. She will
play all day if she could. She also enjoys sliding in to fetch, which
sometimes sees her damaging a dew claw. Since River needs to be
desexed in her new home, getting these removed at that time would probably be sensible.
River does really well with a routine and lots and lots of exercise and
attention. Routine and exercise change her from anxious back to a
beautiful and happy girl. She is very very lovely and sweet.
She is up to date with heartworm/fleas etc.
She is overdue for her C5 injection.
Her mouth is healthy and she has beautiful teeth.

Akira --- (posted 6/2/2021) ---
Akira is a sweet looking little boy but he has serious underlying
behavioural issues and is only suitable for an experienced home which
will be prepared to manage and hopefully reduce his resource
guarding issues. His current home has been working on it, with
behaviourist support, but have realised that in the longer term they
need to find someone who can continue the work. Akira's resource
related anxiety is not trivial, and he is not the dog for an average
home and certainly not suitable for children's company. In other
regards, Akira is well trained, loves tricks and agility. BCRA can
offer some suggestions for vet behaviourists if needed. For more info
on Akira please contact Caspar at firstname.lastname@example.org
Loki --- (posted 6/2/2021) ---
This young BC Kelpie cross has anxiety issues and is currently on
medication, and needs an experienced home which will help develop his
self-confidence, and reduce he fears. They are quite typical of a BC:
thunder (of course) and the vet and handling such as bathing or nail clipping.
He has lots of energy, and loves playing tug, or fetching a ball.
He travels quite well in the car, and is OK walking on lead. A home
which wants to incorporate a young dog into their energetic family
activity is sought. For more info please contact Julie on 0402129437
or email email@example.com
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
Walt --- (posted 8/2/2021) ---
Purebred from Little Eden. Desexed, vaccinated and regularly receives
monthly wormer and tick/flea tablets.
Walt is an incredibly gentle and relaxed dog with a very affectionate
nature. He doesn’t bark (unless a stranger is at the front door or
surrounds) and will do anything for food or treats. He isn’t fond of
little children disturbing his peace in any way, but would be suitable
around older children who like to pat and cuddle in a peaceful way. He
is an outside dog, but has always slept in a laundry or garage.
However, he would love to be inside at someone's feet all day as he is
the ultimate companion dog. Walt is unfazed by other dogs (when
walking, etc.) but can be protective of his owner if he feels the
owner is threatened. He needs to be in an animal-free home as he loves
to soak up all of the love and attention and to give it back! He is a
beautiful, relaxed, loving boy who doesn't quite fit the stereo type
of a hyperactive border collie, but still has the wonderful quirks and
smarts of one. Located Gold Coast Hinterland. Please contact India on
0402 933 309.
Moose --- (posted 23/2/2021) ---
Moose is a 7 month old brown and white male BC. He is
vaccinated, microchipped and desexed. He loves playing fetch and will
happily chase balls and toys around the yard all day. He is very
focused when playing and this is a great time for him to learn new
commands or tricks. He will sit, wait, drop, and roll. He does pull
on his leash when walking but will still listen to commands on walks.
He will jump up to say hello when meeting new people, but doesn’t take
long to settle. He is generally submissive to other dogs, but would
prefer to be an only dog in his forever home. Moose is being rehomed
becuase he and his littermate, currently in the same home, cannot get
along. He does have some
generalised anxiety, predominantly to loud noises like the vacuum or
lawn mower. Moose has tried to herd some people previously, and would
be best with teenagers or older children for this reason. He is not
suitable for a home with little childnre or toddlers. He loves to
lick any part of you he can reach, and would make a fantastic exercise
buddy and companion. For more info please contact Ash at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 0434 638 345
Willow --- (posted 23/2/2021) ---
Willow is a beautiful dog with a warm and gentle nature.
Her favourite thing is to go to her regular park and “herd” the other
She loves kids, she’s grown up around them, the youngest was 3 when we
She can get a bit excited when they run around hyper and very
occasionally might nip someone while she's running with them.
Willow spends most of her day staring at a fence waiting for the dog next
door to move so she can herd them.
She’s always had a doggy companion, both times they have been a staffy
cross that lives next door. They spend the days together as we have an
open door with the neighbours.
A home is sought where Willow will not be left at home on her own.
Things needing to work on with Willow:
Her recall is terrible when out. When she’s distracted she won’t
She is very dog reactive on leash.
She can get territorial off leash at a park with a dog across the other
side if she doesn’t like their energy. (but doesn’t do this at her
She can get extremely scared of some noises - clicking or clapping
sounds. She is terrified of nerf guns.
She also has an obsession with water pistols. She won’t calm down if
the kids are using them because she wants to catch the water but can
accidentally bite a finger.
She’s also a ball thief when the boys are playing cricket.
The reactivity and recall may be improved
with consistency and leadership. I have seen her respond to better
leadership within a week of working with a behaviouralist.
She also has a very sensitive stomach so a managed diet is needed.
She never barks at visitors or deliveries, every visitor is a new
friend to her.
Once Willow’s impulse control is managed she will be a dream dog.

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
