Adopters of Koolie Rescues
are invited to register their new companions in the Koolie club of
Australia's Pet section a great way to stay in touch with our
growing Koolie community,
As Members of The Koolie
Club of Australia all Koolie owners can now compete in all
Australian National Kennel Council sanctioned events except showing,
through the Sporting Register, in Vic, Nsw & Qld, under the breed
name Australian Koolie
if you don't intend to find homes for your puppies before the mating
then have your Koolies desexed. Your own bred litters are so much
more enjoyable when you know you have good forever homes waiting for
them when they are ready to go. The Koolie Club of Australia is here
to assist as much as we can, become a member, register your Koolies,
keep in touch with the Koolie community though our bi monthly
newsletter. The best way to insure that your pups don't wind up on
death row is to have a list of clients. As a member you can notify
the club you intend to have a mating, send puppy notifications and
photos. The club will then display your photos on their site
and inform new owners who are looking. Please do your bit and
be a responsible breeder and owner and help the Koolie Club of
Australia keep Koolies out of pet shops and pounds..
For over 11 years Tjukurpa has been Rescuing Koolies
from all over Australia. We bring them here to Victoria at our own
expense. Where we care for and assess each one for re-homing to
good loving families.
We never destroy a Koolie unless severely aggressive and we try to place them
back onto farms, where they can work, or they are adopted by Sport,
Service or active people and families with active lives.
All Koolies are inoculated, micro-chipped, vet
checked, desexed on a heartworm/flea/worm protection, can be registered with the Koolie Club of
Australia in their Pet Section and are covered by Tjukurpa's 30 day visitation, If your Koolie
doesn't work out, we take it back.

This Month Rescue
Meet Lucy, who has been surrendered to our care.
unfortunately her owners have learned that not everyone and every home
is suitable for a Koolie. Lucy is a Koolie x all white with
perfect hearing and sight. Her owners have kept her inoculations up to
date, have desexed her, micro-chipped her and have her on a flea/worm
program and have given Lucy a 12 month vaccination against heartworm,
all this to insure that Lucy has every chance of finding a great forever
family. In her time with us Lucy has played with all the Koolies and
showed she has a lovely nature and truly is devoted to people, she knows
basic obedience, sit, come, leave and will make an excellent companion
for a family or retired active couple, even a single. Lucy is very
gentle but will still love lots of walks and play time.
Deafeness doesn't have to come with a death sentence
is more help available these days for owners with deaf dogs.
The upside of owning a deaf Koolie, they won't bark at the dogs next
door or join in when the doggie chorus begins at three in the
those with reduced eye sight adapt, one of my boys has only thirty
percent of sight and yet plays and navigates around our small
property and knows every inch of it. If you are interested and wish
to learn more about deaf/blind dogs contact Liz Grewal at
and check out our deaf help page
