I just received the following great news about Elvis…

“I just last night confirmed we have a new home for Elvis. He is going to live with another Koolie and a Wolf Hound.
The women who is taking him doesn’t work and trials and herds her dogs and is a member of a dog club.
I gave her a complete picture of his pluses but also his problems as the last thing we want is for him to be moved on again.
thanks for all your help.”

Elvis will be living with two dogs, 3 children, 2 adults and enjoy a nice big back yard, followed up with support and training sessions with Suzanne Phillips from Animism.  A wonderful outcome for this sweet boy.  Thank you to everyone who shared his story.

The following call for help comes from Suzanne Phillips of Animism. If you can please spread the word for this gorgeous boy, that would be so great. Or maybe you could offer him a wonderful home? If so, we would love to hear from you!

Hi everyone, would you please send to your farming communities to see if we can get a new home for this beaut ‘Coollie’ breed called Elvis, designed for barking and herding – it has not been the success in the city as promised by the breeders. They forgot to mention he was designed for a farm job.
He is socialised with other dogs and loves people, but realistically needs a job and is not being fulfilled at present. He is quite a lot taller than the normal border collies and is still a very young dog with lots of potential, just not a city boy.

If you would like to know more about this animal and/or offer to adopt, we would LOVE to hear from you! Please contact Suzanne Phillips on 0408 949 683 or fill in our EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORM and we will forward your application direct to the rescue group.

All dogs, cats, rabbits and most farm animals advertised on Animalactionist.com must be vet checked, immunised and desexed before handover to new families.  If the current custodians of the animal you are planning to adopt (via this site) do not ensure this is arranged, please contact us.

      Thank you Suz! I do very little compared to the rescuers on the ground – but I am very happy that I can help in some small way. Thank you too for your amazing work, helping animals AND people. What a special gift you have. Much love to you!
