Adopter details

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

About me

My name is Cathy Opie.  You can reach me on: 021 02716424 or email at cathy.opie@yahoo.co.nz. I live in Auckland 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 1 hours per day.


I have 2 children 6 and above. At our property, we have 2 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:

Large fully fenced property with lots of lawn for running around.

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

We simply love dogs and I like the idea of giving these gorgeous dogs a home. I have had medium to large breed high energy dogs all my life. Although we live in Auckland, we have had relatives with farms so we are familiar with farm dogs. We have a 2 yr old female Huntaway who would love a companion. We have large parks nearby and the beach is only 10 minutes away so a new dog would gets lots of exercise and another dog as a companion. Our dogs are part of the family – they gets lots of love and can live inside or outside – whatever they prefer.
