Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Howard McCawe.  You can reach me on: 0212799222 or email at howardmccawe@gmail.com.

I live in Te Kohanga in our own property.

I can walk/exercise a dog and I already have 3 other dogs.

The dog would not be left alone.The dog is likely to be left alone for 0 hours per day.


I have 2 children 6 and above.

At our property, we have 1 cats, 10 chooks, 0 rabbits and 60 sheep.

Details of other animals:

155 R2 Dairy Heifers

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

50 hct flat to rolling farm.
Carrying mostly Dairy R2s.

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

Looking for an older Beardie nearing retirement.
Need some noise to shift cattle out of a bush paddock.
Will be well looked after like our other dogs.
Wife and children love dogs and will be well loved.
Will only work a couple of days a week.
