Teddy is just that... a big Teddy Bear !! He is very laid back and placid. He is very friendly loves people and is very cuddly and smoochy. he likes to follow you around and rub against your legs. He is great to groom and just lays there purring. He settles in quickly and easily into new environments. He requires a home where he will be kept indoors only and needs to be brushed once to twice a week. He is fine with other cats and not phased by dogs. He is a big handsome boy with stunning blue eyes.

Olivia is an amazing pup. Brave and adaptable she loves to play and hang out with her older foster brothers (cattle crosses) and is very keen to learn the ropes from them. She comes when her name is called and responds to whistles. She is great off lead, very happy to explore but always checks where you and the other dogs are, and rounds them up if they leave the flock. She is happy to sleep anywhere, enjoys her food and doesn't mind getting wet near the creek. Olivia also settles nicely inside.
