Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Eve Martin.  You can reach me on: 0220954386 or email at moc.liamg@nitram.jg.eve. I live in Porirua 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 8 hours per day.


I have 2 children under 5. At our property, we have 1 cats, 6 chooks, 0 rabbits and 16 sheep.
Details of other animals:
We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

Ruff, Tux, Sue Budda, Guy, Jake or Dusk

A few words about our property:

Hilly 5 hectare lifestyle block. Recently built on it so is still a working progress. Property is fully fenced however we like to keep our gate open so a dog that isn't a wanderer would be best (happy to keep it shut while the dog gets used to the place)

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

We have owned our current dog for 11 years and have had dogs previously. We need a bit of help shifting sheep every once in a while so a dog that can help out with that is important however it will be a pet first and foremost. Will need to be very patient with kids as we have a boisterous 2 year old and another on the way.
