About Coal:

Coal is a large, male huntaway, aged 10 years old.


Coal is a hard working sheepdog with heaps of noise. He could still be used for stock work, but is ageing. Coal has been good around children, but may be best suited to an adult household (best discussed). He is a big black hairy dog that requires a bit of feeding. We have just sold the family farm and so I need a new home for Coal.

Is Coal used to children? Yes.
Is Coal used to cats? Yes.
Is Coal toilet-trained? No.
Is Coal used to stock? Yes.
Is Coal used to chickens? Yes.
How well does Coal get on with other dogs? Great.
Coal lives in Waipawa, North Island.
A bit about Coal’s personality:

Affectionate to the point of demanding, he has decided in his old age he can hang around the house. Coal is a very loyal dog.
