Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Nicola Te Raki.  You can reach me on: 0279632356 or email at nicolateraki@outlook.co.nz.

I live in Greymouth 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.


There are no children at the property.

At our property, we have 2 cats, 8 chooks, 0 rabbits and 26 sheep.

Details of other animals:

3 kune kune, 1 miniature horse, 12 ducks

We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

An older ex-working dog

A few words about our property:

Home on 18 hectare property

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

We love all our animals and our cats and dogs are rescue animals. Our sheep, chickens and ducks are not for eating – they are all pets. We would love to give another dog a forever home. Although our intention is not for the dog to have to work mich it would be awesome if there was a dog out there who may want to work a couple of hours a week helping out rounding up the sheep.
Our dogs sleep inside and although it would be nice if they were house trained I’m sure we could teach them to go outside if they are not.
