  1. Foster Dogs

    Thanks all. Glad you liked the photos of Esme. Some Christmas photos sent through from the adopters of former fosters We are incredibly lucky that we get updates in relation to all 20 of our previous foster dogs. Some are more sporadic than others, but all the adopters still keep in touch. Some of the foster carers in our group never get any updates, so I know that we are very fortunate. It also makes handing them over 'easier' in a way given that we don't lose touch about how they're doing - it always feels like they've joined an extended family. Former foster Evie, adopted in August 2017. Here she is on Christmas day with her 'cousin' Piglet the cav and her human 'brother'/friend Finley. Finley learned throw a ball for her before he could even crawl! Former foster Dyson, adopted in December 2016. Former foster Jack (was Takeshi). Adopted January 2019. Former foster Frida. Adopted in October 2012. Here she is with her brother Niko the Kelpie Former foster Monkey, adopted in June 2018.

    Thanks so much all. She's settling in nicely. She's sensitive to correction and guidance so doing well. Some very mild separation anxiety but we are working on it. Mega Stinkeye Getting into the Christmas spirit. Not happy, Jan. Little bit cute "Notice me senpei!!!" Standoff Kelpies are still bemused by the interloper in their midst..

    Yes :D I'm a softie. In other news, we have a new foster dog. Not our usual working dog ... our resident dogs are ... perplexed and nonplussed.

    Foster dog #21 has arrived. We've been on a break this year from fostering, but Esme showed up last Sunday. She's 12 weeks old and was taken to the vet for a check up by her "breeder". When the vet said that she had an underbite and a mild hernia and shouldn't be bred from, the breeder told the vet to euthanise her on the spot ... The vet felt uncomfortable with this so called our rescue group. We were temp caring Esme until the carer who was supposed to be fostering her adopted out her other foster - the other dog was adopted pending fences being boosted so Esme was to be with us for a few days only. When the other dog's adoption fell through because of allergies within the applicant's family, we ended up with our first non-working dog foster. So meet Esme. She's not a Kelpie She looks like a drowned rat when you bathe her

    Former foster Rookie is also doing well. His family have advised us that he achieved his Rally Novice title earlier this year. He has also started competing in Agility and on the weekend Rookie got his first ‘qually’ in Novice Jumping plus he came first in his height category. In the photo, he is showing off his certificate and ribbon. Rookie is also doing Noseworks and some tracking as the weather cools. His family say that he is a happy and busy boy and a joy to have around.

    Former foster Evie has turned out to be very child-friendly

    Ha! The rescue group actually conducted a poll as a joke, asking if people thought that Takeshi had grown into his ears
