Retiring Australian cobberdogs looking for their perfect forever home
Occasionally we have retiring dogs and we look for a family that can provide what they desire so that they can have a beautiful happy ever after home. This is incredibly hard for us and them as we are attached however whilst we are breeding we are continually juggling dog numbers so we do have to retire some. To be honest a house with too many dogs isnt practical or fair on anyone as there is too much sharing, so when a dog retires its their turn to be a families number 1 or 2 and get all the outings and attention.
Taking on a retired dog in my opinion is way harder than a puppy. our dogs have good lives with us so they do adore us, they will miss their lives with us so its a long process. That being said for families that prove to be a good match, are empathetic, kind, gentle and very very patient the results can be wonderful. retired dogs will be posted here a few months before they are due to retire, so if you are interested keep an eye out or fill in the application and send in an expression of interest for a future retiree.
Also just to add, i don't retire our dogs to families wanting them for a job, we look for families wanting a pet that they will love and spoil as in my eyes if a girl has provided us with some puppies, they have done their job and the future is purely for enjoyment!!
After Lucies final litter we will be searching for her perfect home. When we place a retiree the dog is our complete focus. It's all about what home will suit THEM best. We do not place retirees in homes where people want to use them for a job type role, they have had some puppies for us in our eyes their job is done and now its all about LOVE-FUN and ADVENTURE.
Lucies requests would be:
People who are home a fair bit.
Another friendly, kind gentle dog that is confident, who can show her the ropes, (boy x girls are always best but Lucie gets along with most dogs no matter the gender)
We got Lucie when she was about 10 months old and she hadnt been out and about at all , we have taken her to cafes, rivers, dams ect but we are in a very quiet area so it just tends to be us out, Lucie takes confidence from being with another dog when out and definitly prefers a doggy companion with her.
A quiet life would really suit Lucie with an outing here and there
She loves a good play and a game of ball
A couple or a family with older children, she is great with our young grandson but she is most used to older children and I'm not sure how she would cope with a bunch of young children running around, i'm sure she would be fine if new owners were planning a family of their own in the future. She is gentle and so sweet.
Lucie is a bit of a barker, she doesnt bark for no reason but rushes out for a bark if she hears someone coming, however once visitors arrive she settles quickly and is great with people.
A family who is empathetic and patient as settling in for a retired dog can take several months
She is an absolute sweetheart and we adore her
