About Kib:

Kib is a medium-sized, female Heading Dog, aged 3 years old.


Hi, I’m Kib. I’m a 3-year-old heading dog.

For the past couple of years, I’ve lived on my farm, in Pongaroa.

First thing on my day’s to-do list, RUN!

I’ll ZOOM round the place, so I can say hi to all my seven doggy friends.

I’m a sociable and outgoing wee girl that actively embraces life!

I’m not a shy dog but I’m very soft-natured. I tend to get a little overwhelmed at times and can lose my confidence.

And I’m scared of cattle too!

My farmer sat me down the other day for a chat.

She’s says because she’s recently given up shepherding, there’s not a lot of work for me.

Plus, she thinks I’d be HAPPIER being adored as a PET.

Ok, so she told me about this PET thing.

Cushy beds, lazing round in the sun, playing with friends AND treats?


My farmer thinks I’d enjoy a quieter pace of life with lots of one-on-one time with humans.

A place where I can relax and not feel the pressure to be a fulltime working girl.

Oh, I’d also LOVE another young doggy pal to play with!

I’ll share anything with a friend, EXCEPT my own food. I tend to prefer keeping THAT to myself!

I try my best at everything I do and I have excellent recall.

I’m a good guard dog too – with great hearing! When our farm gates open, I always alert my owner that someone’s coming in.

My farmer really has a soft spot for me. She says she’ll be sad to say goodbye.

She says I make her laugh every single day!

I’m great with people – kids too! She thinks I’m adaptable and I’ll settle well into new surroundings.

So, if you’re looking for a gentle-natured sensitive soul to ZOOM through your days with, I could be your girl.
