Meet Harri, or Harriet if you want to be all formal about it. This sweet kelpie cross is looking for a loving home with an owner who is willing to invest time and energy in ongoing training. And who is excellent at patting. That’s non-negotiable because this girl loves affection.

Harri is a perfect housemate - she is house trained, well mannered and will go to her mat when told to. If you let her cuddle on the couch with you, she’ll be there in a flash. A large backyard would be ideal for Harri, especially if it is accompanied by someone with a good throwing arm. Chasing balls is pure bliss for Harri.

While she is fine with dogs she knows, Harri is not great with all dogs. This is where she needs a lot of training and help. Harri pulls on the lead and has bad recall when off leash. Guidance from a trainer and consistency will make a huge difference here. She needs help socialising (who doesn’t?) but has shown little interest in dogs she knows and too much in dogs she doesn’t.

A home without other pets or with a large, relaxed dog would be ideal. She’s not familiar with or tested around cats so a home without a cat or smaller pets is best.

If you’re interested in Harri, first check your pocket for tennis balls. If you’ve got some, get in touch. She’d love to hear from you.
