Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Catherine McCulloch.  You can reach me on: 0272342284 or email at zn.oc.artx@shcolluccmzn. I live in Whitby in our own property. I can walk/exercise a dog The dog is likely to be left alone for 3 hours per day.


I have 2 children 6 and above. At our property, we have 1 cats, 0 chooks, 0 rabbits and 0 sheep.
Details of other animals:


We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

Heading dog or border collie please (happy if crossed with each other)

We are looking for a well trained dog between 18mths and 6 years old who doesn't bark too much.

I love the sound of Bow from Dannevirke.

A few words about our property:

Large fenced garden to rear with kennel and porch. Living space mainly on 1 floor, dog and cat will have separate rooms for their food and beds.

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

I have wanted a dog all my life and my sons are desperate to have a new canine friend too. My husband noticed how much laughter and fun Mittens,our cat has brought to our house and is busy preparing the fences and kennel for our new addition. Mittens is incredibly playful and sociable. He gets on well with other cats and introduces himself to any dogs on the street, he is also a bit of a dog himself as he loves playing with sticks and running water. I only work up the road 3 days a week for 5 hours each day and have 4 days off. The children are 11 and 12 yrs old so will be able to do their share of dog walking and playing. Our family have spent a long time considering when would be the best time to introduce a dog to our home and have decided the Easter Holidays would be the perfect time.
