    Question Hawksbury Pound?

    In my continued search for the right Border Collie I frequently go to web pages dedicated to working dogs in pounds. Whilst on "Sophies Choice" I saw this:
    Imp. No. PCC 284
    Breed: Border Collie
    Gender: Female
    Name: "Floss"
    Age: 3 years
    Due Date: Tuesday, 23 March 2010
    Notes: Floss is a very sweet natured little girl who is in good condition. Floss does not have any basic training though she is responsive and is a quick learner. A very pretty girl.

    Contact Hawkesbury pound on 02-4560-4644 or 02-4560-4643
    She is a bit older than what I was looking for but if she can fit with us then Im happy. The only issue is that they are not open to taking calls until monday... unless I call at 7 am tomorrow, which I will try to do, but I can not get to sydney to meet this girl. So...

    I was wondering if there was anyone out there who has had dealings with hawsbury pound or may be willing to do a temperment test on a her for me. I need a dog that is sound both mentally and physically and is confident enough to live with my crazy standard poodle and saluki. They love to run and play but they can be a bit imposing :S

    If any of you lovely people can help me out, even if it is just information on who to talk to, I would really apreciate it

    The question remains... IF I do find another dog in a pound in sydney area is there anyone on here willing to help me out?

    Thats what I thought and if I CAN find someone to help me out it would be sooo good. I just really feel that I should get one out of death row instead of buying one from a breeder, and I have spoken to many good ones lately. I know it is a lot to ask but maybe there will be someone big hearted enough to help lol

    I am so bummed... I really like that girl

    Can you not put in application anyway? Who knows how it might turn out. Some of those apps just may not be suitable, well not if they're checking applicant's properly.

    Hi

    Floss is very safe which is great news. She has a rescue group who is paying to get her out as there is concern she is in whelp. This was not posted publicly for obvious reasons.

    I Coordinate the volunteer group at Hawkesbury, also photograph & temp test the dogs with Vic.

    If you are intersted in adopting a dog from Hawkesbury I would recommend you keep a close eye on the Hawkesbury thread on DOL.

    Hawkesbury will never knock back a great home I can assure you. Good homes with responsible owners is exactly what they work hard to achieve for those in need.

    It can take some time to find the right dog, esspecially if you are looking for a specific breed. Definately worth the wait though. Have you considered adopting from breed specific rescue?

    Although this sweet didn't work out Ash ( mind you,I'd perhaps still put your name on her in any case) I will be happy to help in any way I can. Mind you Katoomba is about the furthest I can temp test at for now going in that area . Can also do Bathurst/Orange if you ever see anything out that way.
