Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Josie Scott.  You can reach me on: +642102238621 or email at josie.scott@xtra.co.nz. I live in Dargaville in our own property. I can walk/exercise a dog The dog is likely to be left alone for 2 hours per day.


There are no children at the property. At our property, we have 1 cats, 00 chooks, 00 rabbits and 00 sheep.
Details of other animals:
We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

A retired working dog who would love to live on a huge beach (Baylys).

A few words about our property:

We live on the edge of the cliff at Baylys Beach, also work mainly from home so we are both around a lot. Plenty of space around us for a dog to enjoy.

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

We have had two blue Heelers over the last 20 plus years so are used to a clever dog that enjoys lots of exercise. We work mainly from home and love to have a dog that enjoys chilling out with us and having great times on the beach. Our cat trained our last blue heeler well and is not afraid to stand up for herself so we have no worries about introducing a new dog to her, We are not puppy adverse, but are also happy to give an adult dog a new safe and loving environment. We can travel to pick up a dog, prefer a North Island location.
