About Lass:

Lass is a medium-sized, female Heading Dog X, aged 9 years old.


Hi, I’m Lass, a 9-year-old heading dog cross.

But I’m still a puppy at heart.

Chasing rabbits is the BEST!

I also love swimming in the river and running alongside the quad!

As a pup, I was trained to work stock – but stock are boring – so I became a pet.

While the team worked, I tracked scents in the hill country, finding those pesky wabbits!

Now, it’s just me and my owner. I can’t catch rabbits anymore but tracking is still fun!

Sometimes I bring a hedgehog home. Maybe he can stay for dinner, I ask.

But, no, he always tells me to let him go, and I do.

Every morning, my owner wakes to a gentle whimper from me in my kennel.

A reminder I’m there and ready to start my day!

Sadly, we must leave the farm now. My owner is moving to a tiny place in town.

He says I’m a sweetie and he’s sad to say goodbye. We’ve been together since I was 3 months old.

He wants to find me a loving rural CAT-FREE home, so I can live out my days where I’m happiest – tracking scents in the country air!

Probably best to keep me away from chickens too!

My owner says, while I’m good with other dogs, I’m best living on my own. I can be a little bossy and tend to guard my food.

I should be fine with another cruisy male dog though.

I love pats and cuddles. I’m GREAT with people – kids too!

If someone comes to the house, I’ll give a few gentle barks – just to alert my owner someone’s there. Then, I’m keen on getting pats!

I have GREAT recall and I’ll sit when you ask me to.

So, if you’re rural and looking for a loving friend – and fulltime rabbit detective – I could be your girl!

Please send an email through, including your details, and the kind of home you can offer me.
