Koolie seeks home

Here's Patch (name open to improvement), she's 8mo and needs an experienced new owner who can make the most of her boundless energy and enthusiasm. She was found by the side of the road as a baby pup, taken on by an older couple who hoped for a quiet pet, and just ran them off their feet. She was taken to the local vets for euthanasia if no home could be found. She seems to have had no discipline or boundaries, and not a lot of exercise. In the last few days she's become much better at coming when called, but still wears a long line.

On the plus side- she's gorgeous (red merle with yellow eyes), petite, and friendly, gets along well with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, and impressed the vets during her temporary stay with her friendly nature with people and other animals.

Patch would make a great agility or obedience dog (or even flyball- she's small and likes toys), or an active pet for someone WITH EXPERIENCE and time to commit to training (which she desperately needs). She'll be available for the cost of desexing.

So- on the Pet Show (ABC) tonight we heard that a dog is "obviously too thin" if you can see a tuck up, and easily feel ribs. What on earth would they make of our scrawny animals?

Muddy- 16-17kg at 51.5cm, loses weight just thinking about sheep, and eats 4 times as much as Jack:

Diva- 9mo, tall and lean, looks like a roo dog (but ooh she's nice on sheep):

Sally, the queen of scrawn. She's probably under 49cm, but weighs only 11-12kg, and has palpable ribs, hips, spine- luckily the fluff covers her nicely.
