kelpie adoption


Kigi is a pure bred kelpie in every possible way. He came into AWAR due to his owner not able to keep him. Unfortunately Kigi hasn’t learnt to walk on a lead. However he is still a young boy who will learn very quickly with the right owner.

Kigi has a beautiful personality and loves human company. This is a real bonus as he will focus on his human trainer for instructions. He is quickly learning the command SIT.

He is high energy and must go to a home with someone who understands the working breed and the importance of physical and mental training from day one.

So please only inquiries from people who really can give Kigi the best possible outcome. No backyard confinement unless you are very active every single day.

To submit an expression of interest for Kigi please email Lorraine on

Best outcomes: For the best possible outcome for each adoption we do prefer that you come to us and meet the dog or puppy in person.
Please note: Even though you may be first to call, this does not always guarantee you will be chosen to adopt. By no means do we run on a “first in, first served basis”. We aim to ensure that our animals are adopted into the most suitable home for them and the new family.
