Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Susan Jane Watson.  You can reach me on: 0272388185 or email at susanwatsonnz@gmail.com. I live in Taupo in our own property. I can walk/exercise a dog and I already have 1 other dogs. The dog is likely to be left alone for 3 hours per day.


There are no children at the property. There are no other animals here. At our property, we have 0 cats, 0 chooks, 0 rabbits and 0 sheep.
Details of other animals:
We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

We would be interested in a retired Border Collie or Foxie

A few words about our property:

We have previously had a Border Collie that we sadly had to say goodbye to last year after 16 years, we also have a Minature Fox Terrier. We have a fenced yard, close to dog exercise areas and the lake.

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

As a couple we both enjoy walking, the companionship a dog offers, playing games and learning new tricks. We are familiar with the breed, temperament and behavior.
