Neo the star kelpie


The famous NeoOur lovable rescue dog Neo is very proud to be amongst other good company in a book out now, titled “It Happened off the Leash”.

It was through the PetRescue website that we first found out about AWDRI (Australian Working Dog Rescue Inc.) and found our boy Neo.

Australian Working Dog Rescue Inc. (AWDRI)

IMG_5739 Our beautiful but slightly damaged dog came from this great organisation.  Neo is a cream, also known as a blonde kelpie (no not a dingo) and has a beautiful temperament.  He’s a very intelligent boy, as kelpies are and loves to run and chase despite having a gangly looking leg due to nerve damage.  But try telling a kelpie not to run!  Neo comes on most holidays with us and loves a good walk, swim or dig on the beach.   See the great work that AWDRI does by visiting their facebook page.
