Dogs for Rural Areas
Do you live on acreage and are looking for a dog who is suitable (or used to) rural living?
Our dogs in care (big and small) are able to be tested with the variety of livestock (eg feathered and furry) prior to being adopted.
For Guardian breeds please see our Maremma Rescue Page or if your interested in a smaller house dog that is good on acreage and trustworthy around stock, just give me a call on 02 6355 5004 or 0418171896 (evenings are best) to discuss your situation and what your looking for.
Some things to consider...
As Rescuers, we aim to place each of our dogs in a loving, permanent home. We spend a lot of time and energy assessing each dog's needs and working on matching each dog with the right family.
Dogs can live from 8-21 years depending on the breed.
Adopting a dog is like adopting a child.
• If you are considering a puppy do you have the time available to train it?
• Are you really ready to take on the extra responsibility?
• If you don't own your house, are you allowed to keep pets?
• Dogs need a regular routine – are you able to offer this every day?
• Do you work? Will the dog regularly be left for several hours or long periods?
• Have you added up the financial costs of owning a dog?
• Is anyone that will be living with the dog allergic to or scared of dogs?
• Does everyone in your family want a dog?
• Do you have time for a dog? Will the dog be an inside or outside dog?
• Do you have any other pets that might not get on with the dog?
• Are you aware of the legal responsibilities of owning a dog?
Please spend some time to think about your decision
Owning a dog can be a very rewarding experience and most of all it should be fun! With fun however, comes responsibility. It is up to you to ensure that you give your dog or puppy the best start in your life together and that you continue to be a responsible dog owner so that your dog can enjoy a long, happy and healthy life.
Adoption Fees help to reimburse some of our costs incurred whilst doing rescue, eg costs of desexing, other vet operations (eg entropian, haematomas, removal of other lumps and bumps, etc), vaccinations, microchipping, heartworm testing, teeth cleaning, feeding, medications, etc.
If your interested in a Maremma Sheepdog or other breed of Livestock Guardian (either from me or elsewhere), Im always happy to discuss them if you wish to call. I may be able to help guide you in your choice!
Please feel free to submit an Adoption Enquiry Form for the dog who you are interested in.
