About Becky:

Becky is a medium-sized, female I was told heading dog, huntaway and maybe some greyhound?, aged 2 years old.


Becky needs a new home, in a weak moment we acquired Becky from someone facing a health/tenancy crisis on the promise that she was a lovely natured, gentle young dog with some farm dog breeding.

She has proved to have a lovely nature, be good with the kids and other dogs and is very obedient when put to bed or called to heel.

We have had her for almost 2 years.
She is fully vaxxed and desexed.

Sadly Becky seems to have an innate tendency that despite many attempts we have been unable to completely remove from her. When trying her best to help with stock work, (she really wants to do the right thing..)

Instead of barking or at worst nipping at the heels of an animal, Becky’s instincts drive her to latch on to anything soft dangling between the legs, causing significant damage and pain to the cow or bull. She can be called off immediately, and feels really bad for doing the wrong thing, she just doesn’t understand what.

I am confident that this behavior would not happen if Becky was not in a working dog environment where the excitement and action makes her vulnerable to her deep seated instincts.
The kids are really sad that she needs to leave but they understand that the alternative would be for her to remain tied up all day when the other dogs go out to have fun at work.
Becky can come with a plastic dome type kennel If required.

Is Becky used to children? Yes.
Is Becky used to cats? Don’t know.
Is Becky toilet-trained? Don’t know.
Is Becky used to stock? No.
Is Becky used to chickens? No.
How well does Becky get on with other dogs? Great.
Becky lives in Inglewood, North Island.
A bit about Becky’s personality:

Friendly but shy, Obedient. Playful, but not over the top.
