Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Jessica Murphy.  You can reach me on: 0276309994 or email at sales@aquaticplants.co.nz. I live in Otaki in our own property. I can walk/exercise a dog The dog is likely to be left alone for 24 hours per day.


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

Interested in young dog that can be good with 2 very friendly chickens or can at least be trained to not chase them. Looking for an intelligent dog that can be a part of the family.

A few words about our property:

3 acres with a fence. The fence is getting a bit old though so it’s not perfect as it’s a really old farm fence. But I am always home as I run a plant nursery from home so I work from home.

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

We are looking for a dog to love and be part of the family. We don’t have heaps of pets because we understand they are a huge commitment so our current pets are really happy and well cared for. I don’t believe in locking a dog up in a kennel all day. Our ‘dog to be’ will sleep inside and be able to run around the section all day and will come for car rides as well. They will almost never be left home alone. We are looking for a companion and a pet to love.
