Farley was not suitable for our program as he was unable to settle and focus on his training which affected his ability to learn. Farley also has limited ability to control his urges to explore new things when he is meant to be focusing on his training routes. Basically he wants to be a pet!
Farley is a gorgeous boy who is full of character. He is eager to please his people and enjoys learning so he would thrive if given plenty of opportunities to use his brain. He has a tonne of energy and loves going for long walks and may even make a great running buddy.
Farley loves the beach, playing in the sand and enjoys a good game of tug. He also likes some down time in his crate, chewing on a hard plastic bone or being groomed. We recommend that his new owners continue to use a crate at home to help make Farley’s transition to his new life as a pet as smooth as possible.
Farley can alarm bark in the home when he hears a knock at the door and can excitedly greet people by jumping. This behaviour can be managed though and he tends to calm himself down after the initial excitement has subsided.
Farley will need a home dedicated to setting firm boundaries and giving him plenty of outlets for his energy. Somewhere with a lot of room for him to run around. He loves to be with his people so will also need a household where he is included in everyday activities and isn’t left alone to his own devices.
Farley is looking for a home in which he is the only dog, without cats. His energy levels would also be best suited to teenage children or an adult only household.
We anticipate that Farley will take longer to settle into his new home than the average dog. But if you’re willing to work through what could be a challenging transition with patience and a lot of love, then you will be rewarded with a very loving and loyal companion.
Farley is available for adoption to Victorian based applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Isaac is a beautiful boy who has been enjoying life in our breeding program up until recently. He now finds other dogs far too distracting and is ready to retire and enjoy life as a pet. He is an incredible boy who wants to please.
He is great in the home and respectful of boundaries if they are set up straight away. He is used to a crate and settles well in one so we recommend his new owners continue to use one to help make his transition into pet life as smooth as possible.
Isaac can be very dominant with other dogs and we are looking for a home in which he is the only dog. He can become very distracted by other dogs when out walking and we recommend he be walked in a K9 bridle and half check collar due to his size and strength.
Isaac also loves to chase and although it means he will make a great buddy to play fetch with, it unfortunately means he is unsuitable for homes with cats or other small animals. Isaac will make a lovely pet.
He loves to be with his humans so we are looking for a home in which he will not be left alone for long periods every day. He will be best suited to an active family who have a lot of time to spend with him and will give him plenty of opportunities to use his brain.
He loves his toys and is extremely affectionate with children. He will make an amazing snuggle buddy! He may put on a tough front around other dogs however inside he is a giant softie.
Isaac is available for adoption to Victorian based applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.

Sumi was not suitable for the Seeing eye dog program as she finds it too difficult to focus on training when other dogs are around. She is also too inconsistent with her toileting when out and about.
The handler of a graduated Seeing Eye Dog needs to be confident that their dog will not have any accidents when out working. Sumi is a sweet and affectionate girl who will however make a beautiful pet for an active family.
She is well behaved in the home but can become excited and will sometimes jump up when greeting new people. She is still young though so will do well with clear boundaries and a loving and patient family to help continue her training.
She is used to sleeping in a crate and it is her chosen “safe place” when she wants some quiet time. We would encourage her new owners to continue to use one to help make the transition into her new life as a pet as smooth as possible.
Sumi has been raised around children and is great with them. She is smart, very willing to please and loves to be with her humans. Therefore, we are looking for a home in which she will not be left alone for long periods every day. If she sounds like the perfect dog for you then please apply.
Sumi is available for adoption to Victorian based applicants within driving distance of Kensington, Melbourne.
