Dogs for adoption


Meet Cooper, he is an Australian Cattle Dog of about 18 months old. He's a fun, friendly dog that is socialising well with our other pound pooches. He will need ongoing training, with lots of exercise. 

Cooper likes to bounce up and down to get your attention, so he will require good fencing. He has a sweet side when you get to know him, and enjoys his cuddles. 

We are not sure how Cooper is around cats and stock.


Meet Batman, this cool dude would be an awesome companion for so many activities.

He loves to play with people and other dogs. He’s really easy-going and chill, we think he’d be happy to give heaps of new experiences a try. He is super loving, and ready to please.

We believe he is about 2 years old, and is a cross breed with possible Bull Terrier and Staffy breeds in him. He is a medium size.

We don’t know what he’s like around cats or stock. He will need daily exercise in his new family, and more training.


Meet Jayde, she is a four month old Staffy cross pup. 

Jayde has lots of energy, she loves to play and cuddle. She's enjoying playing with other pound pups, and playful dogs. She has a sensitive side, but can also be quite boisterous. 

She will require training and exercise. We're not sure how she would go around cats and stock.

Willow and Storm

Meet Willow and Storm, they are 7 week old pups, one female and one male.

As far as we can tell they are possible farm breeds Huntaway x Collie type dogs. Looking at their paws they look like they may grow to be medium sized dogs. 

They are healthy, happy puppies that need a loving home. They also will require exercise and training


Meet Zara. We believe Zara is a Fox Terrier cross, she is about four months old. She will be a small to medium sized dog.

Zara is sweet and gaining confidence all the time. She will need lots of love, attention, training, exercise and play. Zara is socialising with our other dogs, she can be a little timid but is improving all the time.

Zara is ready to find her forever home.


Max is a two year old Header x Huntaway.

Max is super sweet and really smart. Max is socialising really well with our other dogs, and loves people.

Max will need lots of exercise, but will reward you ten times over with devotion and love. Max loves to play and cuddle, he is a great all-round dog.

We don’t know how Max goes with cats or stock.

Brandy, Ella and Shadow

We believe these three are Fox Terrier crosses, they are about 3 to 4 months old.

They are already starting to pick up toilet training, but will require lots more training, not to mention love, compassion, play and exercise.

We believe they will be a bit bigger than a Fox Terrier when they are fully grown, but shouldn’t be too much bigger.

If you think you can give any of these three girls a great home, come and meet them.


Star is a Staffy x Labrador, approximately one and a half years old. She is friendly and laid-back. She comes across as a much older dog as she does not have the typical puppy boisterous play.

Star is happy to cruise along with people as well as other dogs. She has socialised well with our other pound pooches, however we don’t know how she goes with cats or stock.

Star will require daily walks and would benefit from more training. She is very clever so this shouldn’t be a problem, she knows basic commands like sit and shake hands.
