Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Trisha Russell.  You can reach me on: 0273981911 or email at valleycats08@gmail.com. I live in Ruakaka 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 6 hours per day.


There are no children at the property. At our property, we have 10 cats, 0 chooks, 0 rabbits and 0 sheep.
Details of other animals:
We are interested in adopting the following dogs:
A few words about our property:

Big fences around 3 sides, front fence is about 1.2 metres high

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

Because I love my dogs. They get 2 walks a day down 5 ks of beach, sleep inside and are my family. Today I have agreed to take an old (about 10) abandoned heading dog home from Taumarunui (I used to live there) and he needs a friend.
