Well, hello there! My name is Raven, and I am a tan and black Kelpie girl, around 6 months of age.
Look, I’ll be straight with you; I am a powerhouse and Australia’s newest source of renewable energy! I love running and playing and chasing my foster brothers. When I first arrived at my foster home, I didn’t really know what toys were. But then they got me a squeaky sheep and I’ve been in love ever since! When my foster brothers chase the ball, I only chase them, but with a bit of practice, I reckon I’ll be able to play fetch all by myself. I’m sometimes a little shy when meeting new dogs, but I warm up pretty quickly. Humans – both big and small – however, are no problemo at all. I’ll love you no matter your age!
I hadn’t had any training before I arrived in my foster home, but I’m very smart. So now I respond to my name, I know sit, drop and off, especially if you have a few yummy treats ready for me. I walk well on-lead and although I haven’t had a chance to run free yet (you know, vaccines and all) I’ve got a solid backyard recall (that’s when they shout ‘Raven, come’). And no need to worry about me toileting in the house, I know where that business is taken care off – outside.
I’m now ready to go to my forever home. I will need a very active family to look after me and keep me busy - you know, renewable energy and all. I love my two foster brothers and I would really enjoy living with another dog (or dogette, I don’t mind). That way, we can play and run around together when you’re not home. It’s also nice to have someone to show me the ropes around the house and keep my confidence up when meeting new dogs. I really want to continue my training, ideally on a daily basis. This helps wear me out, and I’m super excited when I get to use my brain. Most of all though, I’ll need someone that will love me, look after me and take me on adventures. In return I can offer you;
- All the belly rubs I – sorry, you – could ever want
- Many good laughs as I’m goofing around
- The best evening cuddles any dog can offer, and
- Endless love and licks
If this sounds like you, please send in an application. Right away. Now! I’m ready to start my life for realises! I promise you won’t regret it!
