Our lovable rescue dog Neo is very proud to be amongst other good company in a book out now, titled “It Happened off the Leash”. Edited by Paddy O’Reilly, this book contains funny anecdotes and stories of amazing dogs that have been rescued by some well-known and not so well known Australians. Part proceeds from the book go to PetRescue which is a national animal welfare charity providing free support to hundreds of Australian rescue groups, shelters and pounds.
It was through the PetRescue website that we first found out about AWDRI (Australian Working Dog Rescue Inc.) and found our boy Neo. Having had kelpies in the past we knew they were the breed for us and thought of rescuing one rather than buying a puppy. It was love at first sight when we spotted him on the AWDRI website and he’s been a part of our family now for 3 years.
