One of our friends advertised on the Working Dog site for an older, or surplus dog, that was suitable for working a few sheep around the paddock and the yards, and needed a good home. She has had some interesting dogs come her way. The first one was an older bitch who had been rescued from a property by a Jillaroo, who wanted to save her from the kind of home where a "good flogging" is the training method of choice. Our friend has given her an safe home and she is proving to be very keen, if they lose track of her, she will have mustered anything around and be holding them at the gate. Next came Banjo who we picked up yesterday, he is said to be an excellent dog, "too good for a bullet" but will not work a full day. Martin said he sounded like the perfect dog for him, so he has come to work with Roy and replace Meg,( his working dog who died last year). There is another dog coming from out West who is older and works well, but the guy has 12 dogs and wants to move her on. So any of you who have a place, work a few sheep and need a dog let us know, who knows how many good older dogs are out there who would suit our smaller enterprises very well and could be rehomed in the lifestyle belt!
