Pixie is naturally excitable in nature. Along with her excitable nature she is easily distracted by other dogs and is not overly confident around noisy traffic or strangers out on the street. This unfortunately affects her capability to focus on work. Pixie would however make a lovely, fun pet.
She is super affectionate, loves cuddles, pats, kisses and playtime. She has good home behaviour but does get very excited when people come to the door. Her favourite way to greet people is to jump up and give them a kiss on the face. She is quite young though so will benefit from ongoing obedience training, clear boundaries and a patient and loving family. This will help build her confidence, focus on her handler and settle her excitement levels.
Pixie likes to play with other dogs but can become excited easily therefore would be better suited to a household with an older, sensible dog that could act as a calming influence and help to teach her good doggy manners. Due to her high energy levels and tendency to jump up when excited Pixie would be best suited to a home with adults or teenage children.
Pixie is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Hartley is naturally excitable in nature which unfortunately affects his capacity to focus on work. Along with his excitable nature he can sometimes become unsure of people when out and about. Seeing Eye Dogs need to be confident and focused in all situations and environments therefore Hartley is not suitable for the Seeing Eye Dog program.
Hartley would however make a lovely, fun pet. He is a big, loveable goofball who loves to play, especially in water. He also loves to play with other dogs but would benefit from a sensible playmate who can tolerate his energy levels. He has good home behaviour but will bark at strange noises or people walking past. He can be strong on-lead, especially around other dogs, however responds very well to food and can be walked in a gentle leader.
He will thrive with clear boundaries and further training. Hartley loves kids and is very playful however his size may be too much for young children. Therefore he would be best suited to children school age or above.
Hartley is available for adoption to applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.
