Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Malcolm Birch.  You can reach me on: 02040906859 or email at mister.sheen@gmail.com.

I live in Rural between martinbrough and Greytown in our own property.

I can walk/exercise a dog

The dog is likely to be left alone for 8 hours per day.


There are no children at the property.

At our property, we have 3 cats, 0 chooks, 0 rabbits and 18 sheep.

Details of other animals:

We will have other farm animals at some stage but not yet.

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

Small 2ha lifestyle block. fully fenced

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

We are not in a position of adopting a dog yet but thought we would apply now for consideration in 6-9 months when we are. We don’t have the time to look after a puppy and go through the whole training process, we would like to adopt a dog that is a bit more settled.
In time we might get a puppy and having a settled dog would help with socialisation and hoping having an older dog might assist with the pups training.
We like the idea of providing a home to a dog that is not able to met the working requirements of a working farm but has the skills to help us.
