Adopter details

Hi, I’d like to adopt a retired working dog.

About me

My name is Danielle Coppell.  You can reach me on: 02102871704 or email at daniellejmcoppell@gmail.com.

I live in St.Arnaud/Nelson in our own property.

I can walk/exercise a dog and I already have 2 other dogs.

The dog is likely to be left alone for 3 hours per day.


I have 2 children under 5.

At our property, we have 0 cats, 0 chooks, 0 rabbits and 1000 sheep.

Details of other animals:

800 cows

We are interested in adopting the following dogs:
A few words about our property:

Working Sheep and beef farm, Howard valley, St.Arnaud

Needing a female huntaway/beardie to work with a good bark.

Small farm/ pretty flat so can take an older girl (upto 8yrs) who needs semi retirement from those harder hill country stations.

We just lost our female huntaway and don’t have the time to train up a new pup. Just needs a good bark and keen eye.

Here is why I think we can provide a good home:

We care for our working dogs.

They have a good life. Warm kennel, clean water, food and a good pat for a job well done.
