Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Sam Brooker.  You can reach me on: 0276976372 or email at svbrooker@gmail.com. I live in Whangarei in rented property. I can walk/exercise a dog and I already have 1 other dogs. The dog would not be left alone.The dog is likely to be left alone for 0 hours per day.


I have 2 children under 5. At our property, we have 1 cats, 3 chooks, 0 rabbits and 0 sheep.
Details of other animals:

Dairy cows and calves
Pigs and piglets
Will get a couple of sheep at some point but don’t have any at the moment.
Kids are luckily to have lambs at some point.

We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

We are contract milking on a dairy farm in manungakaramea northland. We want a semi retired working dog that is trained. We want a dog to help get the cows in, they are dairy cows so pretty much get themselves in just be nice to have a dog to get the stranglers moving. But mostly wanting a dog as a farm companion, to spend the days with me or my staff around the farm while we do jobs.

A few words about our property:

Dairy farm

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

We will provide a loving home with plenty of attention. The dog can do what it loves and run around after the bike and come and hang out with me or my staff all day with a bit of work in there aswell. When they are no longer able or wanting to work they can see out their days as a loved pet at the house with the family.
