Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Graham Darlow.  You can reach me on: 063248094 or email at zn.ten.eripsni@muiniroc. I live in Palmerston North 4476 in our own property. I can walk/exercise a dog and I already have 2 other dogs. The dog is likely to be left alone for 3 hours per day.


I have 1 children under 5 and 2 children 6 and above. At our property, we have 1 cats, 3 chooks, 0 rabbits and 0 sheep.
Details of other animals:

Cattle consisting of a few cows and weaner calves., Alpaca and a horse

We are interested in adopting the following dogs:

We need a hunterway that will bark to help me shift the stock

A few words about our property:

Small block of 36 acres of flat land

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

We have had a retiree before and sadly had to have him put to sleep earlier this year at age 15 due to arthritis and his back end going so he couldn't get up at all and had to be picked up he was otherwise in excellent health and is sadly missed by us and the cat who adored him. I need some one with an impressive bark the two remaining dogs one is 11 and starting to find things difficult and the other a border collie does her best but has no noise! We are experienced animal carers and i am sure our vets will vouch for us if need be
